Renowned makeup artist Sammy Mourabit has sued global fashion powerhouse LVMH for $10 million for reneging on its promise to make him Artistic Director for its brand Make Up For Ever.  Mourabit, a top celebrity makeup artist, was set to start work on January 1, 2018, had received a multi-million-dollar contract from LVMH which was abruptly canceled during a phone call in October 2017, without compensation.

In a prepared statement Mourabit said, “I was instructed to give up all of my clients, so when I began work on January 1, 2018, I would be entirely associated with Make Up For Ever and LVMH. This position of Artistic Director was the culmination of 30 years of working with the best in the business and a dream come true. When the job did not come to fruition not only was I disappointed, but my career suffered after turning down 12 months of work because of my contract with LVMH.”

“I use the eye masks, I throw them in the freezer so they are icy cold. I sleep on my face so when I wake up my eyes are always puffy so I really need them. I put them on for a couple of minutes before I get out of bed. As they thaw out on your face, the ice aspect reduces inflammation and the serum has the hyaluronic acid in it. These are simple things. You can get on with your day and use them all,” said Madonna.

Products coming to America include the infamous Rejuvenator Set ($600), which includes a Chrome Clay Mask with a removal and penetration device (something resembling a magnet).  Less pricey items include The Eye Mask ($50 to $120), The Face Wash ($50), and Mask Remover Sheets ($12).  Initially, the line will only be available in-store at Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills and on Madison Avenue, but it will also be found on and

Madonna has joined the droves of women “freeing the nipple” in the upcoming issue of Vogue Italia.  Shot by Steven Klein, the polaroid issue features a YSL-clad Material Girl, leaving little to the imagination.  Thanking Franca Sozanni, the publication’s late editor-in-chief who passed away following a year-long illness in December, not only for her contributions to the World Of Fashion but for “encouraging strong Independent Women to take risks!”  Madonna’s big reveal is one of three covers shot by Klein, hitting newsstands later this month.
