Simone Perele, Demi Bra with a Tattoo Effect

Simone Perele, a fine line brand, has prepared quite a surprise for us – a new fashion lingerie collection, called Tattoo. The collection features smooth black embroideries over sheer beige or nude tulle, a fresh and unique design that delivers a striking visual effect of tattoos on bare skin.

The ever-seductive sheer Demi Cup Bra is accomplished in very sheer beige or nude tulle. The bold embroideries feature floral and leaf motifs that cover the entire cup. The smooth embroideries appear as if they have been painted right on the skin, like tattoos.

The boldly embroidered looks very dramatic and seductive. The unique design of the center gore features a v-shaped design superimposed over a beige tulle, which is almost invisible to the eye. Pair it with a Simone Perele, Tattoo, or Thong for a variety of mysterious and breathtaking looks.

Lancome, Energie de Vie

In Chinese beauty rituals, the healthy skin is the result of what they call a Qi Se, where Qi stands for Balanced Skin Energy Flow, and Se means Ideal Skin Color. The so-called Qi Se is revealed by a radiant, rosy glow that comes from within. For that reason, the Energie de Vie collection incorporated new unprecedented ingredients, such as three plant roots known as the best secrets of Ancient Chinese Medicine: Gentian, Rhodiola, and Wild Yam, designed to promote Qi Se, i.e. rejuvenate, recharge and re-balance the skin. The new Energie de Vie skincare line successfully combines a cutting edge science and ancient Chinese tradition of Qi Se to help you achieve a more radiant and energized skin through detoxifying, hydrating and nourishing.

Combined with Lancome’s experience in developing world’s best skincare products, the result if the new beauty collection that currently offers two products to be used daily as a two-step skincare routine: Energie de Vie Lotion is a liquid energizing essence that helps hydrate, refresh, and illuminate the skin.
