There is an underlying theme of daring in this month’s issue of BEAUTY the Guide. We didn’t set out with this in mind but the stories started to follow a similar path. The particularly interesting beauty launches for October each push the boundaries of science and artistry. Who would have thought to create a lip colour, as Clinique has just done, using eyeshadow as inspiration? shu uemura rethinks its Rouge Unlimited lipstick line with four new mixers that change any lipstick with pearlized or glitter texture, purple or yellow washes. And YSL has created a men’s fragrance for those who dare to follow their dreams. (It’s called Y and is a woody fougère with notes of bergamot, juniper berry and fir balsam.)
But I dare you to read Jamie Johnson’s story about how her mother battled breast cancer for seven years and not cry. It’s heartbreaking and a keen reminder of the importance of organizations like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation established by Evelyn Lauder in 1993. Jamie reminds us of the importance of living our lives to the fullest because we don’t know what is coming down the line. Her words and memories are a gift to all of us. I hope you enjoy this issue.
