Contest: Betty Boop and Jean Paul Gaultier

JPG Contest

Hello my dear readers! This is not an April’s fool. Today, is the day… I have something amazing for you to win! Just read further and explore that little surprise.

Have fun discovering Gaultier’s new Summer Edition fragrances, that have become an essential rendez-vous in our beauty must-have calendars. This year, the two limited editions, Classique and Le Mâle are adorned with the icons Betty Boop and Popeye for a match made in heaven.

The tin can, the Jean Paul Gaultier’s signature in stainless steel, receives a summer make-over in a striking metallic blue for Popeye and a powdery pink for Betty Boop. Gaultier tells it straight: The Gaultier can is 40 this year and is rust-free. Uh, wrinkle-free. The most everyday object revolutionized by the fragrance world hides an innate ability to disguise itself as a can of spinach. Even the label is there. Popeye won’t even notice!

Classique Betty Boop

Classique Eau Fraîche
The fragrance: a torrid, sugar syrup. An unusual blend assembled around white flowers created by perfumer Daphné Bugey.

Top notesLemon sorbet, ginger and sugar cane juice
Middle notes: Exotic tara, jasmine and orange blossom
Base notes: Vanilla, musk and neo-labdanum

Ginger, indivisible from Classique, is found as an overdose of gourmand: crystalline, reminiscent of a lemon sorbet; sharp, yes, but sweetened with sugar cane juice. Sugar cane, with a sensual edge from the Labdanum Neo. Vanilla is also present. But musk has the final word and rushes to let the brain know we’ll be back for more. Eaux Fraiches smell of lazy summers: “Oh my – You smell so nice“!

The limited edition hits the shelves TODAY!
Classique Eau Fraîche Betty Boop (100 ml): CHF 136.00
Le Mâle Eau Fraîche Popeye (125 ml): CHF 100.00

Hypnôse Star Is Boop-Oop-a-Doop

Betty Boop3

First of all, there is no doubt that Lancôme produces the best mascaras in the entire world and the newest creation HYPNÔSE STAR is just a testament to my statement.

For their advertising campaign, inspired by the movies of the 30s, the famous French luxury cosmetics house is calling upon Betty Boop, the sexy cartoon character, and Daria Werbowy. “Betty Boop’s mischievous eyes and innate sensuality are combined with the contemporary spirit and confident femininity of Daria Werbowy,” Lancôme says. “Yesterday’s vintage glamour meets the glamour of today.”

Betty Boo

Wrapped in a sparkling case, Hypnôse Star combines a specially designed brush, which has three patents pending, and a “Black Diamond” effect fluid formula to sculpt lashes. Two flat sides deliver mascara to the lashes, including the shortest ones, while two oblique sides with longer fibers separate and lengthen lashes while fixing them in a curl.

Utilizing two types of wax, Hypnôse Star offers two formulas for light texture and robust volume. Different soft waxes provide a mistake proof application while hard carnauba wax forms a thin film over the entire lash surface and sets the curl.

Available now for CHF 44.-.


Werbowy wears “Noir Midnight” Hypnôse Star mascara, Ombre Hypnôse eyeshadows “Erika F” I202 and “Strass Black” S310 and “Beige Diaphane” 03 Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation. Lips are enhanced with “Sequins d’Amour” 170N Rouge In Love lipstick.

Ombre HypnoseNew OMBRE HYPNÔSE eyeshadows are available for CHF 39 each in 24 amazing shades.

Have a look at this super-cute video in which we will learn from Mrs Boop that “all stars have a secret,” before Daria chimes in with Betty’s signature boop-oop-a-doop!
