Revealed in the April issue of Vogue is Pat McGrath’s new skin transformative makeup kit, Skin Fetish 003. For those who’ve wondered how to get that signature dewy, luminous look as seen on the runways, the three-piece set includes a dual-ended stuck with a creamy illuminator on one side and a nutrient-rich balm on the other. The components of the kit, which also includes a made-in-Japan blending brush and a glimmering pressed powder (available in two shades), can be used together, or alone. When swept across the face, the shine is reminiscent of the ethereal skin McGrath created at Valentino’s recent Fall 2016 show, where she first used the product.
 Pat McGrath Labs will produce just 25,000 of the Skin Fetish 003 Kit, which will be available on April 26 at and on May 10 at

For generations, French women have passed down their beauty secrets from mother to daughter.  Style icon and English actress/singer Jane Birkin swore by her grandmother’s skincare regime and bestowed this beauty secret to her daughters Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon.  This well-kept secret is Lait-Crème Concentré  from Embryolisse®.  The multi-purpose moisturizer has developed a cult following since its introduction in 1950 by a Parisian dermatologist, launching Embryolisse® as one of the first pharmaceutical skincare brands in France.  Lait-Crème Concentré, a “24-hour miracle cream,” serves as a primer, moisturizer, and make-up remover.  Its rich natural active ingredients (shea butter, beeswax, soy, and aloe vera) restore skin’s suppleness and elasticity, leaving it smoothed, plump, and incredibly soft.

In celebration of its 65th birthday, Embryolisse® has launched the limited-edition Lait-Crème Concentré Gold Series, exclusively at and boutique retailers nationwide.  There are only 100,000 tubes available!  Twenty Beauty Undercover Subscribers will have an opportunity to win a tube (retail $28), simply by following Embryolisse® on Twitter and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks.
