Earlier this week, Chicago was touched by an angel, and she brought gifts! Victoria's Secret Angel Lindsay Ellingson held a special luncheon to celebrate the launch of VS's latest innovation—the Gorgeous Push-Up bra and the new VS Attractions bodycare line. Held in the elegant space of Cibo Matto, the 2nd floor restaurant of the Wit Hotel, us beauty elite were first privy to a cocktail reception with mini-makeovers by the VS cosmetics line and were able to sample the decadent new products of VS Attractions.
The makeover stylist, I soon found out, was the personal makeup artist of Jennifer Hudson, Abbey Taylor. Being in dire need of both a primer and a lip exfoliant (my lips are ready for spring and can't handle the fact that its still cold!). Abbey was able to recommend both products from the VS beauty line, the PRO Airbrush FX Face Primer with SPF 20 and the PRO Smooth FX Lip Scrub and Balm (both $14 at victoriassecret.com).
As she was fixing me up I asked her what products Jennifer Hudson carries in her beauty bag. (I obviously had to ask). She said JHud has an eclectic taste that includes products from M.A.C., Nars, Smashbox and Amazing Cosmetics—some of my favorite brands as well! Clearly, we have so much in common.
As we sat down to lunch, our hostess Lindsay Ellingson explained the magic trifecta that was the new Gorgeous Push-Up bra. The bra has detachable straps to be worn three different ways: low-back, cross-back and regular for maximum versatility. It's available now in a full spectrum of colors and embroidered patterns at victoriassecret.com.
The VS Attractions line, new for spring, features a secret ingredient called EverTempt which is a blend of fragrance notes that is supposed to evoke a pheromone-like magnetism. The collection consists of a Fragrance Mist, Nourishing Body Lotion, Indulgent Body Cream and Daily Body Wash. The four scents include Sweet Craving: Warm Vanilla, Wild One: Midnight Raspberry and Sexy Lily, Glam Goddess: Sensual Musk and Naked Freesia, and Love Bitten: Forbidden Apple and Sultry Woods.
Elligson went on to officially launch the Gorgeous Push-Up and VS Attractions line at the VIctoria's Secret Michigan Avenue store that evening so not both and beauty are available for the taking at any Victoria's Secret boutique or on victoriassecret.com. Go get your sexy on for spring!
