8 for october 2017

Here is your beauty cheat sheet for the month of October. I’ve researched all the major beauty, fragrance and skincare launches of the month and selected the most exciting you need to see.

estee lauder advanced night repair pink ribbon edition

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Pink Ribbon Keychain


This month, the Estee Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign will mark its 25th anniversary. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) was founded by Evelyn H. Lauder in 1993 to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. I had the honour of speaking with her years ago when she came to promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I was immediately struck by her passion and sincerity. Both she and Elizabeth Hurley spoke about their genuine passion for the charity and the need to find a cure for breast cancer. Evelyn sadly passed away from cancer but her legacy lives on. This is one of my favourite charities and I’m thrilled to see the Estee Lauder brand offering special Pink Ribbon products in October that raises funds for research. Purchase this pink edition of Advanced Night Repair and the company will donate 20% of the suggested retail price to the BCRF.


marc jacobs Daisy deluxe editionDaisy Marc Jacobs Deluxe Anniversary Edition


New York Fashion Designer Marc Jacobs is celebrating the 10th anniversary of his Daisy fragrance with a show-stopping bottle for collectors. The sparkling, woody-floral scent with notes of strawberry, violet leaf, spicy pink grapefruit, gardenia, violet, jasmine, white woods and vanilla remains the same. But the daisies that adorn the top of the bottle are covered in hundreds of Swarovski crystals. There will only be a handful available due to the craftsmanship and detail needed to make each one. It will retail for $450 and will arrive mid-month. It’s beautiful.

This essence-in-foundation cushion compact promises the most comfortable foundation on-the-go. Enriched with hyaluronic acid and litchi extract, this cushion foundation promises 18 hours of deep nourishment. The oil-in-gel cushion immediately transforms the quality of the skin. And pure pigments paired with silk-in-spheres fibres offer true colour. It even boasts a sharp-angled applicator to follow all the angles of the face. Available in six shades.

Clinique Pop Lip Shadow


If you visit backstage during New York Fashion Week, you are more likely than not to see pro makeup artists using a simple trick to create a velvety-texture on models’ lips. They will apply lipstick and then dab pressed powder on top to achieve a matte finish. Clinique’s Research and Development team took inspiration from this insider technique and created a creamy pigment lip colour that glides onto lips and then transforms into a weightless, powdery finish. The anti-bacterial sponge tip applicator allows you to build the intensity – from subtle to dramatic. Even better, the formula is flexible so it doesn’t crack. It is available in 8 fashionable shades.


To apply, you untwist the applicator and sweep directly onto lips or over lip balm for optimum comfort. Replace the applicator and twist to close. It will instantly load more colour onto the sponge.


tiffany and co eau de parfumtiffany and co eau de parfumTiffany & Co Eau de Parfum


If early sales are any indication, the Tiffany and Co signature eau de parfum debuting this month will be on of the year’s top scents. I really like it as it is soft and clean. It is subtle and fresh – the opposite of the sweet gourmands we’ve seen of late. Perfumer Daniela Andrier of Givaudan blended green mandarin, orris natural fraction (iris), patchouli and musk cocktail to beautiful effect.

dolce and gabbana the one eau de toilette

New Dolce & Gabbana the one Eau de Toilette


Fans of D&G’s classic the one fragrance will be happy to learn there is a new scent in the franchise. This isn’t just a lighter version of the original. It’s a completely new scent that is inspired by the first edition. Perfumer Michel Girard used the Madonna Lily note to create a new floral addiction with bergamot, mandarin, lychee, peach, muget, jasmine, vetiver, musk, vanilla and amber. It’s a very sexy scent.

shu uemura colour mixer glitter

Shu uemura rouge unlimited glitter colour mixer


If you study the relaunch of shu uemura’s rouge unlimited lipstick collection, you’ll spot four special formulas hidden amongst all the lipsticks. There are four colour mixers that allow you to change the colour or texture of any lipstick in your collection. There is a purple which deepens and lipstick without dulling it. Yellow warms up and brightens any lipstick. Pearl texture mixer creates a pearlescent effect on any lipstick you have. But the coolest one is the glitter colour mixer. It adds a high-level sparkle to any lip colour. So fun!

    I am particularly touched by Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair with Pink Ribbon Keychain. For 14 years after a first breast cancer and a recurrence in 2013, I live with the sequelae of these two cancers and those of two others of the colon. In Montreal there is a house affiliated to the Jewish hospital that allows us to feel good this is where I meet people like Elizabeth Hurley who devote themselves to this cause, they are formidable. Thank you Dave for emphasizing this cause and I try to live pleasantly and I make up much more since participating in Beautiful and Well in his skin institute across the country! @danielleperrault
    Thanks again Dave !

    This post is excellent, Dave, thank you for taking the time to write such an amazing article. Of course I love the Lancôme Autumn 2017 Collection. I can’t believe that 10 years has passed since Marc Jacobs first launched his Daisy Perfume. Evelyn H. Lauder was an amazing woman! @WisteriaGirl
