FRANK WILDER + UGO MOZIE JEWELRY COLLECTION DEBUT!


Fresh of the press: Enigmatic jewelry persona, Frank Wilder, and maverick style icon, Ugo Mozie, have joined forces to release an uncommon collection of eye catching jewelry dropping Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at Noon. The collaborative Eagle Collection features Wilder’s pioneering technique, which merges the traditional process of lost-wax casting with the modern process of 3D printing, for a truly cutting-edge and beautiful collection of silver and gold bracelets, necklaces, and rings. After having caught the attention of international jewelry enthusiasts across the web with statement rings and totems boldly crafted after mythic creatures. This collaboration with Ugo Mozie is the first of many collaborations to come from Frank Wilder. Mozie recently debuted a fashion line with world-renowned celebrity clientele ranging from Chris Brown and Justin Bieber to Larry King, and has worked on projects for the Oscar Awards, Sex and the City 2, Vogue, and GQ Magazine. Ugo Mozie also served as the US PR director of Vivienne Westwood in 2014 and just a few weeks ago was recognized as one of Complex’s ‘25 under 25: The New Young Leaders of Style’.

                   

Mixing conventional jewelry casting with modern technology, Wilder, whose identity still remains a mystery, has pioneered a new method for jewelry making that he sells in collaboration with other artists to showcase and empower their artistry through the medium of totems. Drawing inspiration from a variety of sources as wide-ranging as velociraptors, the movie Jaws, Pablo Picasso, and travels to Bali, Frank Wilder’s Eagle Collection collaborator Ugo Mozie is one of the fashion industry’s most sought-out stylists, and is among one of the youngest fashion editors in the world. Born in Nigeria and raised in both Houston and LA, he infuses his African heritage with his Southern and West Coast backgrounds to create a distinctive sense of style. Speaking on his partnership with Ugo Mozie, Wilder says, “Ugo was an early supporter of my work and I have always admired the bold yet elegant touch of his styling. It was a natural step for us to partner for the Eagle Collection.” At odds with the banality and transience of fast fashion, Frank Wilder and Ugo Mozie’s Eagle Collection is set to offer discerning audiences a refreshing take on accessorizing. Describing the collaboration, Mozie says, “I’m incredibly excited to work with Frank Wilder and bring his unique art and talents to a larger audience. The attitude and passion of the line will revolutionize traditional jewelry making, and will merge a sense of old-meets-new with Wilder’s cutting-edge design techniques.” The Eagle Collection arrives Noon Wednesday, April 22, 2015 in Los Angeles at www.frankwilder.com. Aesthetes looking to add to their collection of distinctive jewelry should mark their calendars, as this inaugural collection is expected to sell out quickly.

RADHA BEAUTY SKIN CLEARING + ANTI-AGING SERUM



*product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

HAPPY FRIDAY GORGEOUS READERS!

Radha Beauty recently contacted me with an invitation to take part in a Brand Backer campaign testing Radha Beauty Skin Clearing & Anti-Aging Serum. I accepted the task and was extremely excited to learn not only is the serum all natural but they're a cruelty free brand. This is my first experience with Radha Beauty and I'm excited to learn more about what the product line has to offer. Finding decent skin care with powerful yet suitable for sensitive skin ingredients can be quite the task. I invite my members to learn more about Radha Beauty. Have a fabulous weekend! Stay Beautiful! XOXO
About the Brand: Growing up in an Indian home in South-East Asia, I Rebekah Letch, Co-Founder of Radha Beauty, was constantly bathed in oils. Oil baths were part of my regime growing up. As a kid, my mother would adorn my hair and skin with different oils and create natural mixtures using spices and oils from turmeric, coconut, argan, lavender, peppermint etc which left my skin insanely soft, supple, blemish free and radiant. I would always get compliments on how healthy and radiant my long hair and skin were. Over the next 10 years, I worked with some of the world's best makeup artists as a professional ballet dancer and model. However, I noticed that after each session, my face would either break out, or get really dry and flaky. The more I learned about the toxic chemicals in most cosmetics, the more I wondered: did beauty have to be bad for us? I couldn't accept that. I wanted cosmetics that embodied luxury and conscience -- cosmetics that were sexy and fun, high quality and organic, effective and good for Mother Earth. In 2014, I started Radha Beauty a 100% pure & natural oils line and a natural skincare line. We combine high performance with natural and healthy ingredients and partner with earth-loving, women-empowering organizations, use Eco-friendly packaging. Radha Beauty embellishes beauty with the earth’s most natural oils and our natural skin care line. Our products are Cruelty Free and Not Tested on Animals.

Formula: The milky serum has a very silky, fluid consistency with a pleasant faint herbal scent. It's lightweight yet moisturizing which is why I recommend a small amount applied at a time. You only need a few drops on your entire face for full coverage. It absorbs completely on the skin in a matter of seconds so you can layer your moisturizer on top right away. While the formula is light and cruelty free, it packs a powerful combination of active ingredients such as a Vitamin C., Retinol, botanical hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and Niacinamide. It's also all natural and full of gentle organic ingredients suitable for any skin type, even sensitive -- such as mine --  as well as oily types. I didn't experience any burning or irritations which I loved. The product is all natural and does not contain fillers or harmful fragrances, dyes or parabens. I also noticed how it reduced the redness around my cheeks after washing my face. It soothed the skin somewhat in this regard. That's an added plus for me because my skin can get pretty red after cleansing and exfoliating. The icing on top is that the brand manufactures right here in the United States at an FDA approved facility. As for the skin clearing results, I will keep you posted with an update since I would need extra time to fully test the long term results but since using it my skin feels soothed, extremely hydrated and does not interfere at all with both my moisturizer and foundation. You can use the serum without worrying about pilling. Below is a link where you can purchase it from at an affordable price. I recommend you try Radha Beauty and let my know what you think. So far I'm impressed with the quality!

Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream

  
Hello! Sorry for my absence. I have my hands full with work. I'm catching up today to post a mini-review on a deluxe Sephora sample I received of Algenist Genius Ultimate Anti-Aging Eye Cream. I'll be back soon to post my anniversary giveaway. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

A unique, rich eye cream that addresses advanced antiaging concerns for visible results in as little as 10 days. This rich eye cream is the best of antiaging biotechnology. The powerful formula combines both alguronic acid, a patented antiaging breakthrough, and microalgae oil, a plant-based collagen, to help strengthen the fragile eye area. Formulated with Persian silk tree extract to visibly firm the upper eyelid area for a 360° eye care solution, this formula visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin luminosity instantly. Skin is left nourished, smooth, and younger-looking.

Formula: The formula is fluid and fast absorbing. It has a lovely creamy scent and doesn't irritate my sensitive yes. I love that I was able to apply it all over my lids and that it's non-drying. The cream will not interfere with your eye concealer. My only issue is with the hefty price for such a small amount of product. Have you tried this? Opinions?

Availability:Sephora, Genius Eye Cream, $72 0.5 oz
