New York-based watch and design house Nooka has launched their debut fragrance, titled simply Nooka.

Nooka eau de parfum communicates a universal language that transcends opposites. A synergy of scents, both familiar and foreign, instinctive and original, mental and physical, that come together as one. Japanese Yuzu sprinkled with pink pepper. Polished steel wrapped in vintage leather. This fusion of natural essences and synthetic accords creates the next generation of precious liquids, expressing each wearer’s multi-faceted individuality.

Developed and designed by Matthew Waldman and Pierre-Constantin Guéros.

"Time is a form of universal communication" said Matthew Waldman, founder of the house of Nooka from New York, while he was presenting his first fragrance. This perfume is universal, just like time and it is ideal for men and women, created with a dose of futurism.

10,000 flacons of Nooka fragrances in amounts of 75 ml are announced to be produced.

Flacon of Nooka perfume is of cylindrical shape, with a silver stopper and name on its transparent glass. Founder of the house is planning to launch a collection which will include 4 fragrances. The second fragrance is scheduled for next autumn.

The notes for the light, fresh fragrance include yuzu, vintage leather, pink pepper, coriander, tonka bean, gloss paper accord, cypress bark, musk and pink sand accord. Nooka is meant for both men and women, but according to Nooka founder Waldman, “unisex is a bad word”.

Nooka is available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum ($80); samples are also available ($5). It can be purchased at the Nooka website.

Two Twilight Beauty Lines

Twilight Beauty, a new cosmetics brand themed after the series of films, will launch two lines debuting this Fall: Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available in conjunction with the release of the second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which arrives in theaters on November 20, 2009.

Esmy Mancia and Kimberly Clark of All About
Beauty, the product development team behind numerous bestselling lines,
developed the cosmetic products for Twilight Beauty, together with Cristina
Bartolucci, the founder and Creative Director of DuWop Cosmetics.“We have
worked tirelessly to create innovative cosmetics of high quality to serve as the
backbone for both lines
,” explains Clark. “Twilight Beauty has coupled
these products of note with edgy, sophisticated packaging that is undeniably
.” With over 70 products, Twilight Beauty
provides a unique and exceptional makeup experience that can be enjoyed by
everyone from Twilight enthusiasts to women looking to highlight their own
,” adds Bartolucci.

Luna Twilight reflects the
mood and spirit of the saga’s iconic female characters, presenting a collection
that creates a harmonious blend between soft, natural beauty and stunning,
fierce splendor. Notable products from the Luna Twilight line include First Light Body and Face Glow for radiant illumination
and Gleam Metallic Mascara for captivating lashes.

Volturi Twilight offers entry
into Twilight’s exclusive coven through use of the Volturi family crest as the
brand’s logo. The line features Foreshadow Primer, an
ultra-sheer eye base that provides the ultimate prep for a smoother,
crease-proof eye shadow application that is coupled with loose glitter dust,
called Labrynth Shadows. The highly pigmented loose powder
shadows and the lid primer are housed in stackable pots, providing the ability
to mix and match the colors to create personal, one-of-a-kind eye shadow

-Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillard’s and Nordstrom.
-Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers.
-Both lines will be sold at TwilightBeauty.com, the exclusive website for both brands.

Soo what do you think? Me? I'm not planning to pay a bit more than I already did for a cheapo vampire thriller movie/book and its creator. Fans will be very happy tho.. (SOURCE)

Escada ''Desire Me''

After last year's edition Escada Incredible Me, a new seductress arrives - Escada Desire Me. The fragrance aims at modern young woman who enjoys being in center of attention, is aware of her qualities and knows she is an object of many men's affection. Her dashiness, charisma, charm and fragrance leave an unforgettable impression.

Desire Me continues the fragrant story of Incredible Me. It seduces with a charming composition of luminous bitter-sweet citruses and accentuates juiciness of mandarin which pulsates embraced by essences of a heart, which are dominant and united with peony and fresh green leaves.

Fresh green floral notes leave a feminine trace along with a mysterious, exotic and fruity blend of aromas. A base is characterized by gourmand elements: tiramisu, coffee, cookies, special aromas of cheese-cake, as well as opulent nuances of dark chocolate, which contribute to warmth and sensuality on the skin for a long time.

Desire Me arrives in a flacon with the same form as its antecedent, with golden-yellow outlines and black stopper. The flacon is created symbolically so that its body forms logo of the house of Escada, and is available as 30, 50 and 75 ml EDP.

Advertising face of this edition is Olivia Wilde, photographer is Greg Williams, and TV commercial was directed by Brett Foraker. The fragrance can be expected on the market by August 2009.

The warm, luxurious and floral White Musk Midnight Iris Iris de Minuit begins a new fragrant experience with light and fresh bergamot and iris, expressing its depth with essences of lily of the valley, clary sage and iris, leaving sensual musk waves, sandalwood and tonka in the finish.

The fragrance is gentle and pleasant like it were keeping you on the palm, protecting you and surrounding you with warmth.

YSL Fall '09 Additions

YSL has extended its mascara portfolio with the addition of Mascara Singulier. It will be launched into travel retail in September.

The multi-tasking mascara is said to deliver extreme volume, extravagant curl and endless length. It also helps keep lashes supple and shiny, YSL maintains, thanks to the shield effect of a plant sugar-based polymer.

The formula is built around a Modelling Stretch Complex. Volumising micro spheres sheathe the lashes from base to tip, while acacia gum helps those spheres adhere to the lashes. Nylon micro-spheres “stretch” out the tips of the lashes for maximum length; while the inclusion of a curling wax is said to deliver a customised, long-lasting curl.

The Mascara Singulier applicator is described as a new-generation brush that features “injection technology”. It is composed of moulded spikes formed into spirals – a multi-directional format that maximises the mascara distribution.
In addition, the brush has a fine conic tip to aid application on even the smallest lashes, and in the corners of the eyes. Mascara Singulier will be available in four shades – deep brown, deep black, deep violet and deep green.

Yves Saint Laurent Parfums has unveiled a new liquid foundation, called Teint Resist.

Teint Resist: Yves Saint Laurent's first 14-hour, stay-true, smudge-free foundation
The oil-free make-up (complete with SPF10) is described as YSL’s first 14-hour, stay-true, smudge-free foundation. It is said to deliver a luminosity to skin that remains radiant for hours without any need for touch-ups. The silicone-enriched emulsion leaves a veil of colour on application. According to YSL, protective pigments, teamed with a film-forming polymer, help to preserve the shade as time passes. In addition, nylon micro-sponges blot up excess sebum.The result, the brand claims, is natural-looking, flawless coverage that lasts a full 14 hours. Teint Resist is presented in a frosted glass pump dispenser bottle, topped with the signature YSL gold-coloured cap. The foundation is available in a total of 10 shades: the lightest two will be available in Near East travel retail only.

NARS Fall '09

Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara
This mascara delivers length and separation with its high-performance formula. The high-tech bristles on the conical brush allows for maximum lengthening capabilities and precise lash definition that lasts all day.
