Beauty News June – Johnny Depp in “Legend of Magic Hour” short movie by Dior
The new, stunning short movie by Dior for Sauvage sees Johnny Depp (historical face of the brand’s male fragrance) as the mysterious storyteller of the “Legend of the Magic Hour.” The creators behind the movie are Clément Beauvais and Arthur de Kersauson, while the story comes from a Navajo Legend: it tells the story of the Coyote, the hero-trickster figure that inspires respect and fear in the Navajo traditions, and who, out of impatience, created the Milky Way by tossing the stars in the sky with a blanket. The short movie is poetic and aesthetically beautiful, with the California desert as a background for a long night waiting for the Coyote, as the audience is walked through the story by Depp’s magnetic voice. A little gem by Dior Beauty and another beautiful campaign for Sauvage, one of the most appreciated male fragrances of the last years.

Beauty News June – Glossier Wins a FIFI
The first fragrance of the brand, Glossier You, launched in 2017 and was created by Dora Baghriche and Frank Voelkl. Now, barely a year after, it won a FIFI (like the Oscars, but for fragrances) as Fragrance of The Year. The fragrance, winning as most popular for 2018, smells “warm” and “sparkling”, which doesn’t really means anything smell-wise: that’s because the fragrance is meant to enhance the personal and unique perfume of anyone who wears it, making it comfortable and outstanding at the same time. The perfume comes in two sizes: a regular bottle, pretty and with the Glossier-like minimal but delicate-shaped packaging, and a millennial pink, solid travel-size.

What child doesn’t love the iconic wax crayons by Crayola? Some of us definitely did paint our grandmother’s tablecloth with one of those bad guys. But now, it is finally time to paint our faces with them (we would have loved it, and our parents would have so hated it)!
There are 58 pieces in this childhood-infused collection, which is an ASOS exclusive, and it comprehends all the colors of the rainbow. There are lip and cheeks crayons and face crayons that look exactly like the iconic wax crayon, stick highlighters, colorful mascaras and eyeshadow palettes. The packaging and the colorful nuances make this super-pigmented makeup line look exactly like an art tool, so…have fun with it!
