Spring 2009: Chantecaille La Baleine (The Whale)

Chantecaille continues its philanthropic theme with La Baleine (the whale) collection. It's similar to last year's Protected Paradise collection in that each of the two palettes has three colors. It's also similar in price. Protected Paradise was $90 plus tax for each item. La Baleine is $98 plus tax.

The look for an oh-so-fresh face!
How to Get the Look:

• Gently blend La Baleine Blanche Face with the Face Brush and brush directly to the highest points of the face: across the cheek bones, nose bridge, and forehead.

• Apply the Ink Precision Pencil to intensify the base of the top lashes.
• Using the Basic Brush, apply the Sand from La Baleine Bleue Eyes on the eyelid, from eyelash base to slightly above the fold.
• Apply the Pale Blue from La Baleine Bleue using the Contour Brush, along the brow bone.
• Use the Definer Brush to apply the Dark Grey La Baleine Bleue, softening the area where Color and Highlight meet in the crease, recreating the shadow of the lash against the skin.
• Apply two coats of Mascara in Noir to top and bottom lashes.

• Using the Cheek Brush apply the Laughter Cheek Shade starting at the inner edge of the cheek bone working in soft strokes downwards, out towards the temples. Also try it in Delight or Emotion.

• Using the Lip Brush, apply a soft coat of Angel Skin Lipstick starting from the middle of the bottom lip spreading the color outward. (This prevents from an excess of lipstick on the lips edge, eliminating any bleeding) . To brighten things up, also try Cassia or Angelica.
• Now, outline the shape of the top and bottom lips with Tone Lip Definer Pencil, drawing from the edges inwards.

Chizu Saeki Interview

Japanese women seem to be always stylish and have beautiful skin. I often wish for that porceline skin myself. Now we can all find out the secrets to their beautiful skin thanks to a new book by Chizu Saeki The Japanese Skincare Revolution How to Have the Most Beautiful Skin of Your Life -At Any Age.

Japan’s top beauty expert and lifelong aesthetician Chizu Saeki reveals some quick and simple skincare techniques from her new book The Japanese Skincare Revolution (Kodansha International, March 2009. $19.95).

The Japanese Skincare Revolution by Chizu Saeki is the Japanese woman’s skincare bible. Auther and beauty guru Chizu Saeki shares with the world, for the first time, the natural, low-cost techiniques she developed over a career spent in the beauty industry. With it, you’ll learn what today’s Japanese women do to keep their skin looking young and healthy.

Here is an interview with Leading Beauty Expert Chizu Saeki Author of The Japanese Skincare Revolution.
Why did you choose the skincare industry for your profession?
When I was 13 years old, I saw Audrey Hepburn in a film catalog, and I was amazed that such a beautiful person could exist. This is what aroused my interest in beauty. I began imitating her looks, and gradually I realized what a wonderful thing it is to become beautiful. I quit the clerical job I had been working and enrolled in a beauty school to help others achieve beauty.

How are Japanese and American women different in their approaches to skincare?
Japanese women generally want to whiten their skin. When I lived in the U.S., I got the impression that Americans are more interested in hair design and don’t get hung up on details-brown spots, open pores, and such. They look to a more holistic kind of beauty.

There’s also a difference in perceptions of aging: the Japanese tend to take a back seat in everything as they grow older, but Americans think about wearing brighter colors, such as red, precisely because they’re getting older. I think they’re better at enjoying life; they’re the ones who believe in beauty that comes with age. That’s a wonderful thing, and we should follow their example.

Many women feel they need to spend a lot of money on expensive cosmetics. On the contrary, you encourage women not to spend a lot of money. What are some inexpensive but effective steps to maintaining beautiful skin?

1. Get to know your skin well.
2. Care about your skin.
3. Desire to be beautiful.
4. Put that feeling into your hands, and use those hands to touch and massage your face and warm up the skincare products you apply to it.
5. Thoroughly remove the makeup you’ve applied.
6. Frequently apply lotion masks.
7. Use serum.
8. Seal it off with cream.
9. Protect your skin year-round.

These points are always the same. Rather than buying a variety of products, I recommend practicing these basic steps, with feeling.

At what age should women begin to be concerned about aging? What basic steps should women take to protect themselves against the hands of time?
Nowadays our skin is at higher risk of sunburn due to global warming and destruction of the ozone layer. Growth generally stops at around age 25, and if you want to stay there, you need to take proper care. If you so wish, you can keep from looking a day older even into your thirties and forties.

Different people live in different environments, eat different foods, and live different lifestyles, but my advice to everyone is to take preventative measures. Protect your skin from the elements regardless of age and, when you’ve reached a certain age, give it nutrients by feeding it serum. There’s really no set age at which you should start caring for your skin. Know your skin and incorporate what you feel you need. To young people, though, I’d like to warn against excessive use of skincare products. Your skin is still well balanced as it is, so don’t rely too much on cosmetics. Use lotion masks, protect your skin, and please do moisturize it.

Is there one beauty tool that every woman should have?
Your will and your hands. It’s your own hands and the desire to be beautiful that will do the magic. Don’t think that simply using cosmetics will make you beautiful; be responsible for your own face, and use your hands to the fullest. How much value you draw out of a product is really up to you.
Any quick and easy tips on how to defy age?
Well, always thinking “quick and easy” leaves everything half-baked. How you use your time is up to you, and it’s important to make skincare a part of your lifestyle. But when you only have so much time and can’t do everything, the most important thing is to eat-in a balanced manner.

Your skin’s luster is dependent on your physical health. If your body isn’t well nourished, neither is your skin. Cosmetics help you take in from the surface what you can’t take in orally, but your beauty really comes from what you eat. Eating only what you feel like eating can give you a lopsided diet, and your body, never mind your skin, will be a wreck. There’s a lot of information out there nowadays on healthy eating.

The key is to be conscious of what and how you eat, and to continue eating in a balanced way. I always make an effort to eat moderately. I have yogurt, tomato juice, and fruit every morning, and I make a point of eating things in season. Small efforts like these go a long way.

Why is it important to massage and tone muscles in the face?
Just as our bodies age internally over time, so does our skin-although of course there are factors other than age acting on the skin. The face is especially vulnerable because of all the muscles, as you can see from how wrinkles in the face run both vertically and horizontally. Massages help the muscles stay in shape, keeping your skin looking young and healthy.

Does your regimen also work for men?
I believe so. There are a few differences between men’s skin and women’s, including the amount of oil secretion and thickness, but they’re basically the same. So, man or woman, anyone can perform my regimen and benefit from it.

MAC ''Studio Sculpt'' Q&A


Talk about the development process for Studio Sculpt Foundation SPF 15. What was the need you were filling? Was it due to demand from customers, makeup artists, or both?
It began about two and a half years ago. M·A·C artists all around the globe helped identify the need for a new kind of cream foundation. We wanted it to give a long-lasting, medium-coverage yet buildable finish, with long term hydrating benefits. We went into the lab aiming to create a formula with modern aspects, like a gel base, combined with a very luxurious, rich, creamy feel. It had to have the wear, flexibility and flawlessness that our makeup artists demanded, as well as the comfort, moisturization, smoothing and perfecting qualities that real women have been asking for.

How many seasons did you test Studio Sculpt backstage?
The Spring/Summer 2009 Fashion Week that took place this past September and October was the third and final season of testing done by the M·A·C Pro Team. Their passionate feedback helped us adjust and ultimately perfect the formula. For example, we tweaked the way the product glides onto the skin, which ultimately improved the blending time customers experience when applying Studio Sculpt.

What are the benefits of the antioxidants and SPF protection in Studio Sculpt? Does using this foundation provide enough benefits on its own, or does is help to add another layer of protection?
We added known antioxidants Vitamins C and E, which help to defend against free radical damage. Studio Sculpt also contains a combination of titanium dioxide, a physical sunscreen, and octinoxate, a gentle chemical sunscreen. Together they help offer broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection. While this is sufficient for limited and incidental UV exposure, it’s important to combine with a higher SPF product whenever there’s a chance of additional sun exposure.

What other ingredients in this product would you like to highlight?

Studio Sculpt is made with innovative plant-based extracts for a unique foundation that delivers long-wearing, color-true, comfortably weightless yet flawless coverage. Specifically, we employed sodium hyaluronate, yeast extracts and shea butter to boost moisture levels, plus extracts of Hyberlea Rhodopensis Leaf Extract, Beet Root and Tamarind Seed Extract, which help to improve skin’s hydration with continued use.

Finally, we used a combination of soft focus powders that optically diffuse imperfections and give a more flawless finish. There is also Quercus Suber Bark Extract and Octyldodecyl PCA which, combined with a special new polymer, help to provide a more perfect, smoother, tighter looking complexion.

What types of testing did you do on the formula other than backstage? Can you discuss what some of the results were?
In addition to the backstage testing throughout three Fashion Week seasons, we did a complete Global M·A·C Artist Test with a panel of 130 participants worldwide. The results proved to be very successful, rating above a 90% approval score in Asia, which is exceptionally unusual. We also took the formula through Safety, Claims Substantiation Testing; Consumer Sensory Testing provides a more perfect, tighter feeling and smoother looking complexion.

Technologically speaking, why is this foundation an optimum choice for women, compared to other options?
Studio Sculpt Foundation has fused new advancements in technology with innovative plant-based extracts to create a ush, luxurious new cream-gel foundation that delivers comfortable, weightless and flawless coverage. Makeup artists nd women customers alike can easily achieve blendable medium coverage, with a luminous, satiny finish.


Once again, M·A·C has shattered
expectations for foundation performance with its debut of Studio Sculpt SPF 15
Foundation. The gel-based cream formula is the final result of an extensive
collaboration between M·A·C’s Product Development experts and PRO team of makeup

Backstage at fashion week provides the
perfect testing ground for M·A·C’s new products and our artists, working
tirelessly at countless fashion shows, were eager for a foolproof makeup they
could apply quickly and easily.

Studio Sculpt is the answer to their
prayers. It glides on smoothly and blends effortlessly for a flawless satiny
finish—even when additional layers are needed for extra coverage. The
water-resistant blend leaves complexions perfectly even-toned and hydrated,
while providing all-important broad-spectrum sun protection.

The easy squeeze tube eliminates
waste; just dole out the amount needed for each application. Every drop contains
uniquely formulated micronized silicone-coated pigments that keep color true, so
it appears to sink into the skin without ever becoming mask-like or cakey. A
cushiony gel base helps color slip onto skin for a medium-coverage silky finish.
The smooth formula offers ample blending time for near mistake-proof application
yet adheres flawlessly and stays in place for hours of beautiful

With an ingredient list that reads
like a sophisticated skin care product, this makeup clearly aims to offer
significantly more than temporary benefits. Sodium hyaluronate, yeast extract
and shea butter, all proven moisturizers, add hydration to keep skin looking
youthful and feeling healthy. Hyperlea Rhopdopensis Leaf Extract, Beta Vulgaris
(Beet) Root Extract and Tamarind Seed Extract help to improve skin’s hydration
with continued use. Antioxidant vitamins C and E help defend against free
radical damage, and a mixture of titanium dioxide and octinoxate give SPF 15
protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Made for all skin types, this lush
formulation is especially suited for dry, sensitive and mature complexions; with
continued use, skin becomes increasingly hydrated and supple. Because of the
extreme conditions a fashion models skin is exposed to during the 4-week
marathon sprint across 4 countries and countless shows, Studio Sculpt was their
salvation. This lush uniquely textured foundation delivers ultimate hydration
while instantly revitalizing dull and dry skin.

To complete the flawless face created
by Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation, M·A·C introduces Studio Sculpt Concealer.
Inspired by the needs of M·A·C makeup artists, who demanded a full-coverage
concealer that never becomes dry and cakey, the gel-based cream formula slips
onto skin, effortlessly hiding imperfections. Its silicone coated pigments help
retain color purity, for superb coverage that blends easily yet covers
completely with just a small amount of product.

Serge Lutens Nuit de Cellophane

Serge Lutens has unveiled his latest opus called Nuit de Cellophane (Cellophane Night). The fragrance is scheduled to launch in March of 2009.While the nocturnal thematic will not be unfamiliar to Serge Lutens followers, in particular by those who follow his perfume creations, the insertion of a modernistic material such as cellophane is more of a departure from the general timeless atmosphere pertaining to the Lutensian fragrance universe.

Three perfume notes and a more general aesthetic impression are mentioned to offer an initial sketch of the fragrance:

"Un osmanthus de Chine
Un jasmin particulier qui aurait volé l'écorce de mandarine
le tout sous cellophane"


"An osmanthus from China
A special jasmine which would have stolen a mandarin peel
All wrapped in cellophane"

Serge Lutens writes further about Nuit de Cellophane,

"Et la nuit se dévoile, découvre ses étoiles.
Les papillons du soir en lourd vol velouté dansent autour des lanternes.
Les habitants de l'ombre, grillons et autres fous, tous en service secret, envoient leurs S.O.S.

- "Mademoiselle, s'il vous plaît? Mettez tout cela sous cellophane!
- "C'est pour offrir Monsieur?"
- "Oui, à vous, tout simplement."

Here is the English version from the house of Serge Lutens,

"As the night unfolds, it reveals a cluster of heavenly bodies.
The velvet pirouette of moths fluttering around glowing lanterns.
Creatures of darkness, crickets and other dwellers of the shadowslying undercover, transmit their requests.

- Excuse me miss, could you wrap that please?
- Is it a gift, sir?
- Indeed it is, a gift for you."

Nuit de Cellophane Eau de Parfum will be available 50 ml for 79 € at Les Salons du Palais Royal Shiseido, Le Bon Marché, Le Printemps, Les Galeries Lafayette, and in selective perfumeries.
