Murad Retinol Youth: Youthful, glowing skin at any age

Murad Retinol Youth: Youthful, glowing skin at any age

“Am I too young to start using these products?” This is the question that many women, including us, ask when it comes to anti-aging products. Raised with a notion that these products are solely for women who are in their 40s or 50s, products that help reverse signs of aging are often met with wonder or confusion.

But one is never too young to start taking care of their skin. Starting an anti-aging regimen at a young age is an important preventive method to slow down the process of aging as one gets older.

Just recently, Murad launches its freshest duo: the Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum and Eye Cream. The duo is a nighttime complement to the Retinol Youth Renewal Serum that adds an extra layer of protection and prevention to your skin, no matter what your age is.

Like its daytime counterpart, the newest Murad Retinol duo is formulated with Retinol Tri-Active Technology, which improves the skin in three ways: hastened cellular turnover, lipid-encased retinol that gradually melts into the skin, and magnet-like effects to promote efficacy and absorption. The two also have Swertia Flower Extract that soothes skin and keeps irritation at bay.

Both packing a one-two punch of anti-aging properties, both formulations exhibit the power of retinol, reinvented: powerful yet gentle, effective without being overwhelming. Reminding us that it’s never too early to start our anti-aging routines, Murad keeps youth within reach at any and every age.

The Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum (15mL) retails for P4,850, while the Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream (50mL) is priced at P4,550. Both additions to the Murad Resurgence collection is available in all Rustan’s Department Stores.

Longchamp Unveils New Store in Makati

Mention Longchamp to anyone (and we mean it, to anyone) and that person, whether they’re into fashion or not,  will probably tell you a thing or two about the trapezoidal nylon bag Le Pliage. Ever since its debut 25 years ago, the Le Pliage has remained a bestseller selling ten totes every minute. And why not? The bag is the perfect marriage between beauty and function. Now the iconic French label has found a new home at the heart of Makati.

Located at the first floor of Rustan’s Makati, the shiny new store took inspiration from Longchamp’s Paris Flagship which features contrasting wood, leather, and fabric for you to easily check out all the pieces.

Naturalizer Celebrates 90 Year with Spring/Summer Collection

Naturalizer Celebrates 90 Year with Spring/Summer Collection

Style and comfort are two things that don’t usually go together, especially in footwear. That’s why we often see women, especially the ones working in a corporate setting, have two pairs of shoes under their tables – a pair of heels for meetings and presentations and a pair of simple-looking flats for all-day comfort at work and beyond. But this exact situation is what Naturalizer has promised to remedy since 90 years ago.

Launched in 1927, Naturalizer is one of the first shoe brands that offered comfy and stylish ladies shoes. Dubbed as “the shoe with a beautiful fit”, the footwear brand captures the essence of modern femininity whether that means taking a leisurely walk in velvet ballet flats or running a board meeting in black leather pumps.

This 2018, Naturalizer curated its new collection through a modern lens — on-trend, versatile shoes that evoke beauty of spring and free spirit of summer. Take a look at the collection below:

Cara Delevingne: Choo Cruise ’18

Cara Delevingne: Choo Cruise ’18

With multiple strings to her creative bow, model, actress and novelist, Cara Delevingne is at the forefront of a new generation of models who have both a voice and a powerful platform, she has been a vociferous champion of a variety of causes spanning women’s health, gender identity, and discrimination. Now a rising Hollywood star who had made recent turns in Luc Besson’s Valerian and last year’s Suicide Squad, Cara is forging a cross-creative career on her own terms and it’s that confidence, as well as her innate sense of fun and glamour which embodies the essence of the Jimmy Choo woman that makes her the perfect choice to starin the Cruise 2018 film, advertising campaign, and editorial shoot.

Known for her eclectic style aesthetic, effervescent personality, and flawless red-carpet style, Cara Delevingne is the ideal muse for Shimmer in the Dark, a film directed by Australian filmakerLorinAskill. Reflecting Creative Director Sandra Choi’s overarching collection inspiration of dancing Choos, disco and sparkle and dressing up for a night out and telling the story of Cara’s after-dark adventures in NYC set against the soundtrack of I Get Lifted by KC and The Sunshine Band, the film follows Cara embarking on a night out. Stopping traffic and strutting the streets assertively in her crystal embellished MAINE boots and glitter CANDY bag, she draws the attention and admiration of passersby as she makes her way to her final destination: a club called IWANTCHOO.


Elsewhere, an exclusive advertising campaign and editorial shoot lensed by British photographer Tom Craig, documents the different moods of Cara’s Saturday night, from the all-important pre-prep to high party spirits, on to a seductive encounter and returning back home in the early hours. With the New York skyline forming the backdrop, Cara showcases the key product stories; Disco, I Want Choo, and Borrowed from the Boys from the new collection.

As a model and as a creative, Cara’s personality has always shone through her work and her fun-loving, but glamorous attitude perfectly reflected the Jimmy Choo woman for Cruise 2018,” said Sandra Choi, Creative Director. Powerful and seductive, feminine and effortlessly glamorous, this season isn’t about one look, it’s about the many ways a woman might dress up for a night on the city—but always with a playful allure. The shoot and film both perfectly capture the sense of anticipation and infectious energy that a night out can bring.”

To accompany the film and editorial shoot, Cara discusses her style evolution, explains why she feels under less pressure than during the frenetic zenith of her modelling career, and reveals which family holiday traditions she would never miss out on.
