Beauty Buzz: Isaac Mizrahi’s Makeup Madness, Pixelated Hair Pigments, ODLR’s Extraordinary Posthumous Perfume



The beauty bug has bitten Isaac Mizrahi! The designer will add a makeup and skincare line to his repertoire when both hit QVC on February 9. Called True Isaac Mizrahi, prices for the makeup and skincare will range from $10 to $68. The skincare collection is infused with CoQ10, green and white teas, Vitamins A and E, and marine algae to ensure a smooth canvas for the makeup, which he partnered with True Cosmetics to create. Clearly, Mizrahi didn’t want to start slow. “We’re not dipping a toe in the water, we’re jumping in the lake,” he explained. “And one of my goals as a designer has always been to get my customer to look in the mirror the right way. I don’t want her to buy this because it’s a big fantasy, but because she will look in the mirror and think she looks good.” [WWD]

We’re officially bored with balayage, over ombré, and now consider pastels passé! But we’ve already found a new haute hair trend to hop on this spring: xpresionpixel. It’s a new technique developed by hair colorists Jose Luis Almedral, Marco Antonio Restrepo, and Jorge Cancer that recreates a pixelated effect on the hair. While we see vibrant options ahead for the season, we can even see this trend taking off with subtler, more natural shades. Now to find a salon in the city that can pull it off… [BuzzFeed]

Though the fashion world is still reeling from the loss of the legendary Oscar de la Renta, his legacy lives on not just in fashion, but also in beauty. His latest fragrance will hit stores in April before tolling out to the rest of the world in June. From the flacon to the name, Extraordinary is a sparkling spring scent that has his elegant touch in every aspect. Fragrance fans and ODLR devotees can expect a blend of citrus, neroli oil, plush peonies, and warm woods. As Michele de Bourbon, senior vice president of fragrance sales and marketing explained, “[It’s] very long lasting, very qualitative, and [leaves] a great trail of sparkle and surprise. You almost feel pink, but in a sophisticated way.” We’re practically blushing with delight! [WWD]

We may be stuck in a coif conundrum now, but in a few years we’ll find our signature hairstyle. A recent study conducted by a hair transplant group called Crown Clinic found that ladies find their favorite hair when they’re 32 while the guys wait until the age of 39! As Glamour surmised, by that age most are less likely to worry about the opinions of others and work with what they want. For now, play on, kittens. [Glamour]

While we’re still talking tresses, Pantene’s signature strand savers are getting a serious upgrade for 2015. After adding antioxidant technology to their shampoos last year, the brand is infusing its conditioners with Histidine (not histamine), a protein that penetrates the strand’s shaft, rebuilds from the inside out, and removes mineral impurities from the water for shinier, healthier hair.
