Miracle Skin Transformer

Ya’ll know about Miracle Skin Transformer, right?  This tinted moisterizer glides on like a primer, benefits skin like a serum, and protects and evens skin like a foundation.  What its got: full spectrum sun protection, enzyme Q10, and vitamins A, K, and E.  What it ain’t got: parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, phthalates, and triclosan.The formula comes in six shades plus translucent.  Why the shape of these color samples resembles an array of ethnically diverse vaginas is inexplicable. McNamara aimed to create a multifunctional product that would nourish skin, even imperfections, and provide adequate sun protection.  This isn’t a particularly new concept, but one she magnificently executed with this super-blendable, medium coverage mousse-like cream.  Do consider the all-in-one nature and the size (1.7 oz) when weighing the $48 price tag.

FALL FASHION 2010: GOWNS

Metallics remain a strong trend for evening this Fall.

Strong shoulders keep the silhouette tough for autumn nights.

Epitomize glamour with (faux) fur over a drapey gown.

Fabric, colors, and patterns usually relegated to spring made their way onto the runway.

Unusual plums and purples look fresh.

Shimmering columns with interesting detail surfaced at Ferretti and Gaultier.

Black or white at Derek Lam.
