New @Aveda Spring Culture Clash Collection


Janell Geason, Aveda Global Artistic DirectorMakeup drew her inspiration for the Culture Clash makeup collection from the colors and textures of different cultures around the world. The end result is a global palette of universal hues that works on all skin tones and makeup looks that are as earthy and exotic as they are street smart and chic. “Culture Clash has a distinct boho vibe with a futuristic flair,” Geason says. “For makeup, this means pairing natural, earthy tones like warm coppers and fleshy nudes with a pop of vivid color, for a look that feels fresh and pretty yet sophisticated.”

Beauty Preview with Shiseido and Cle de Peau #ShiseidoWaterfall

The perfect way to break into the reality of Fall and to say hello to November is to attend a Spring 2014 Beauty Preview host by Shiseido and Cle de Peau at the Waterfall Mansion.  Located on the quaint 80th St in the Upper East Side. This venue is stunning!  I knew I had arrived when I saw the front gate that matched the perforated invited I received a few weeks back!

I knew just a bit about Shiseido because because my mom cannot stop raving about them but I haven’t used any of their color cosmetics and skincare regularly. I was so interested and impressed by this event’s elegant presentation and product showcase!


One of the really exciting Limited Edition products is this SPF foundation with a traditional kimono inspired design on the top. Each station had a Shiseido beauty expert explain and demo the products thoroughly.


An actual waterfall inside the house!  How zen and beautiful. Notice the Shiseido logo projected on the waterfall for a really nice touch.  While perusing the spring collection, we had a complimentary sushi bar throughout the entire event, paired with coffee, teas and lychee drinks too!

So I came home with a HUGE goodie bag of all the products and I can’t wait to try and review them all.  Here is a sneak peek at some of the new shades of the Lacquer Gloss and Lacquer Rouge.
