ABS’ Five: Random Odds & Ends

September 16, 2009

I’ve gone over five items yet again, but these new releases are all equally post-worthy so I couldn’t resist.

Thierry Mugler Limited-Edition Angel Deluxe Refillable Purse Spray ($100)
The perfect indulgence to tuck inside your purse for a glamorous touch of ANGEL anytime. Shimmering with elegant Swarovski® crystals, the gleaming silver treasure keeps it brilliant glow safely protected in a pristine velvet pouch.

Thierry Mugler’s Angel purse spray comes bedazzled for holiday gift-giving, and I truly appreciate that it’s refillable since I’d be loathe to throw away something this beautiful. I actually have yet to give Angel a proper sniff but I’ve been hearing great things so it’s on my list of perfumes to check out.

Milly Tulla Bow Dress ($445)
Smoke. Asymmetric bow detail at one-shoulder neckline. Wide shoulder strap. Natural waist. Slit pockets. Straight skirt. Silk/wool.

I saw this Milly dress in the most recent Bergdorf Goodman Fall 2009 Magazine showcasing a myriad of dramatic evening gowns, and it was instant love. I don’t really know where I’d wear this, but I want it nonetheless!

Chantecaille Limited-Edition Sylvie’s Quattro Palette ($72)
Set includes: • Two Lasting Eyeshades in a rich plum brown and matte beige • Shine Eyeshade in shimmery fawn • Perfect Blush in a medium-toned rose

From what I’ve heard, this palette is comprised of the shades in Sylvie Chantecaille’s own palette. The Bergdorf magazine has a promos hot of a model wearing all the shades and the end result is a classically chic, polish look that every professional woman would love.

Laura Mercier Exclusive Essential Eye Organizer ($125)
Laura Mercier introduces her Limited-Edition Exclusive Essential Eye Organizer, a wardrobe of eye colors perfect for fall. Create endless looks with twelve expertly chosen eye colours. Contour, define and line eyes with three professional double-ended brushes.

The stylish eye palette contains the following eye colors:
Celestial, African Violet and Bamboo Luster Eye Colours, Black Plum, Buttercream, Cashmere and Coffee Ground Matte Eye Colours, and Sandstone, Baroque, Haze, Stellar and Sable Sateen Eye Colours.

Each palette contains the following brushes:
Double-ended Eye Color and All Over Eye Color Brush, double-ended Eye Crease and Ponytail Brush, and double-ended Smudge and Corner Eye Color Brush.

I haven’t tried very many Laura Mercier products but this set looks promising ~ I love how everything, including the brushes, is packaged together in one slim little clutch to make for easy travel.

Viktor & Rolf Eau Mega Eau de Parfum ($100 for 1.7 oz)

Eau Mega is the modern expression of femininity as a strength. Glamorous, chic and sophisticated, this fragrance is a celebration of a new icon. A fresh, green, ultra-faceted floral fragrance that is an ode to the seductive attraction of the Eau Mega woman. Megafy yourself!

I have yet to see this in person, but considering how much I happen to love Flowerbomb, I’m hoping I’ll love this one as well.

Cle de Peau Synactif Daytime Moisturizer ($200)
Cle de Peau Beaute introduces a whole new skincare product line based on world-first science about skin functionality. Synactif transcends ordinary skincare by strengthening skin’s lymphatic channel function giving your skin renewed vitality with the benefits of a simple regimen. All the elements of this line from its comprehensively purifying formulations and exclusive ingredients, including patent-pending and revolutionary MACC, to the exclusive Synactif Intensive Facial enhance the natural efficiency of skin and work in synergy to ensure exquisite results. For maximum benefits in minimum steps, daytime moisturizing should be preceded by: Synactif lotion adoucissante (softening lotion) and Synactif soap (savon).

The aura of luxury surrounding Cle de Peau always sucks me in, and it’s no different with their latest skincare launch of the Synactif line. I would probably never purchase most of these products, but I am itching to try them!

Amore Pacific Limited-Edition Time Response Set ($600 value for $400)
Time Response Creme in a limited-edition value added set, including Amore Pacific’s own hand-harvested green tea. Anti-aging therapies continuously correct, protect, and reprogram skin. Pure EGCG, a potent and rare botanical compound derived from green tea, protects skin from damage and premature aging. Skin is restored to an optimal, youthful-looking state.

Set includes:
• Time Response Cream, 1.7 ounces/50mL
• Time Response Hand Cream 0.34 ounces/10mL
• Time Response Body Cream, 0.34 ounces/10mL
• Time Response Serum, 0.17 ounces/5mL
• Time Response Gel Cream 0.27 ounces/8mL
• 1st Harvest Halla Green Tea 0.7 ounces/20 grams

Amore Pacific is quickly become one of my favorite skincare lines, and so I’m beyond thrilled to see this fabulous set of essentials released in time for holiday gift-giving! It’s pricey, yes, but I’d say worth the splurge if you can afford it.

So ~ what’s on your wishlist this week?
