Zana Cosmetics Champagne Party
Lauren Elaine "Black Label" Accessories Launch

Zana Cosmetics Champagne Party

There’s a new cosmetics line in town……

I am pleased to introduce Zana Cosmetics, a line not yet in stores (I will be reviewing the make-up soon), but you can purchase the line through Zana reps. But anyhow- the party was located in the Zana office-located on the second floor in a building on Melrose. Upon entering, I felt a homey atmosphere with accents of pink and a quote by Gandhi, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”  I met up the Sales Director/licensed esthetician and make-up artist – Kristin Gentner, who showed me the line that was on display and also demonstrated the foundation, powder and blush on me. The make-up is cruelty-free, paraban-free and talc-free. It didn’t feel cakey or heavy…just very nice and light and covered all my problem areas.

Along with make-up demonstrations, guests also munched on light appetizers and champagne with strawberries. There was a special treat that night, a free ten minute chair massage given by De’ Leon of Heavenly Hands Mobile Massage. I was literally in heaven after my massage. It was a long ten minutes, in which my muscles eased their tension and relaxed. So ladies and gents, if you ever need a masseuse at the office or in-home…De’Leon and his team of male and female therapists come to you!

It was a fun evening and I’m looking forward to more bashes down the road. In the meantime, check out www.zanacosmetics.com!

Lauren Elaine "Black Label" Accessories Launch

I attended the launch of Lauren Elaine’s accessories line to coincide with her “Black Label” collection of dresses. It was held at the intimate La Maison de Fashion on Melrose. Guests mingled in the quaint courtyard, feasting on cupcakes and Chinese delicacies. There were some very fashionable people that night, including actress Brittany Curran, who was wearing a fabulous sequin purple dress.

The models wore dresses from the S/S 2010 “Black Label” collection, along with the new headpieces and headbands- made from ostrich feathers, Swarovski crystals, metallic silk taffetas and such. Lauren Elaine designed them to be bright, bohemian, bold and stand out. The pieces are very versatile, in the fact that they can be worn to dress up jeans or to liven up a cocktail or evening dress. This line is still brand new, but is already generating buzz among the likes of: Zoe Myers, Brittany Curran, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle and Lindsay Lohan. This February, the line will be sold in high-end boutiques across the country or exclusively online at www.shopflick.com starting at roughly $22-50 retail. Lauren Elaine will also be doing special giveaways to those following her on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/laurenelaineled).

Stay tuned for future events/news on designer Lauren Elaine, cause I have a feeling we’ll be hearing more about her fun designs and endeavors! Check out http://www.lauren-elainedesigns.com/ for more information or follow her on Twitter or Facebook.
