Bourjois - Paris Ballerina 2011


Back to its first love of stage, Bourjois brings into the spotlight the modern day ballerina for Spring 2011!

Between the delicate ballet universe and the Bourjois’ colourful joie de vivre, a new delicate yet edgy look is born resulting in pastel hues twisted with deep black and blue suiting all women from 7 to 77!

Eye Focus: dress your eyes in tender, poetic shades with smoky accents for a graceful ballerina look with the soul of a rock star

Step 1: Eye Definition
Subtly define your eyes with an ultra-soft duo of delicate pink and a flash of softly shimmering silver shades Apply pink Little Round Pot eyeshadow Rose Dragee #05 over your eyelids following the curve of the eye through to the inner corner of the eye to highlight. Blend in the eyeshadow from the base of the eyelashes to the eyebrow arch. Next, add the sparkling silver Little Round Pot eyeshadow Argent Pailettes #25 putting more emphasis on the outer corner of the eyes to open them up.

Step 2: For that Rock ‘n’ Roll Touch
Using the Effet Smoky eyeliner in Ultra Black #76 draw a thick black line onto the base of your eyelashes with the pencil end of the liner and blend it in using the brush tip to create a perfect blended look. Coat your lashes with Volume Glamour Ultra Curl mascara to give your lashes extra volume and curl.

To complement your eyes and complete the look, achieve a fresh complexion, powdered lips and rock ‘n’ roll nails.

CLEANLINESS IS NEXT TO GODLINESS - LIMITED EDITION HEAVEN AND HELL ’GRAFFITI’ SOAP


“I first discovered this natural, beautifully packaged liquid soap in France. The French take their products seriously and not just any soap gets the denomination as it must be made up mostly of natural oils in order to be truly Marseillaise." Gwyneth Paltrow

Compagnie de Provence Graffiti Liquid Marseille Soap £16.50

Keep it clean for 2011 with Compagnie de Provence’s limited edition Heaven and Hell ‘Graffiti’ soaps, representing the urban face of France’s most legendary region. This year, the Marseille- based soap and skincare brand invited graffiti artist iLK™ to ‘tag’ its classic glass bottles in homage to the wall art flowering across the Proven├žal capital, where hip hop and graffiti culture
reign supreme. France’s Banksy, iLK™’s work has also featured on collections by Lacoste and Nike.

Inspired by Marseille’s reputation as a city of contrasts, the ‘Heaven’ and ‘Hell’ graffiti-illustrated bottles symbolise the city’s two extremes: the chaotic buzz of the working port versus the purity and tranquillity of the Mediterranean sea. The limited edition bottles contain a specially fragranced liquid Marseille soap (Savon de Marseille) combining the sparkling sharpness of citrus fruits with vibrant woody notes and green top notes. Each 500ml pump action glass bottle is presented in a beautifully illustrated gift box.

A cult staple in French kitchens and bathrooms for over twenty years, Compagnie de Provence singlehandedly revitalized the ancient Marseille soap industry, transforming the iconic cube into the first ever liquid soap, which is still made in cauldrons according to centuries-old tradition.
