We live in a day and age of collaborations, and fashion houses + the beauty industry is a match made in heaven. Erdem, known for luxe fabrics and powerful, feminine silhouettes, has taken the leap into cosmetics with NARS, with the Strange Flowers Collection. This 13-piece color collection mirrors the strong, romantic makeup looks seen in Erdem runway shows. Rich colors meet interesting textures, such as the multiuse highlighting pencil in White Phox, an opalescent lavender that gives an ethereal radiance. The luxe collection is encased in soft-touch packaging decorated with one of three breathtaking floral prints Erdem created for the collection. “It was really interesting to explore my aesthetic in collaboration with NARS and see how far we could push different elements through color and product,” says Erdem. And that indeed seems to be exactly what they did. Products range from $28-$49. Eye shadow six-well palette ($49), multiuse highlighting pencil—White Phox ($29), blush—Loves Me ($30). Available at NARS Boutique at The Forum Shops at Caesars and Sephora locations.
Welcome to the future! Looking more like a flying car straight out of The Jetsons than a beauty tool, the ZIIP device’s groundbreaking technology comes down to tiny currents that are applied to the skin via the positively and negatively charged disks, which create energy between the two ends. What does this mean for your skin? When used regularly, the ZIIP promises revived, refreshed and lifted skin. As we age, our collagen and elastin break down due partially to decreased ATP (adenosine triphosphate) production. Electrical currents have been clinically proven to increase ATP production by up to 500 percent. Through the ZIIP’s app, the user can select an “electrical cocktail” for desired results from clearing breakouts to revitalizing the eye area. This space age do-it-all device is a winner.
