When the fashion and beauty worlds collide, we know we are in for a treat. This time around, it’s Jason Wu’s turn to show his amazing skills when it comes to the enchanting cosmetics industry, as he has teamed up with Mathilde Thomas of Caudalie to launch a limited edition beauty spray. Already available for purchase at Sephora, the Jason Wu for Caudalie Beauty Elixir is actually Caudalie’s famous Beauty Elixir spray relaunched with a special design à la Jason Wu.
Jason Wu knows how to dress women to bring out their best assets and make them feel elegant and comfortable in their own skin. For this unique collaboration, he has dressed the bottle in his signature meticulous lace design to give the Beauty Elixir that high-end, luxurious feel that it actually conveys despite being such a simple product.
The lace pattern is completely hand-crafted taken from Jason Wu’s spring/summer 2016 collection, while the gold top symbolizes Wu’s It-bag Diane Bag. Together they manage to wrap up the simple bottle with modern femininity and refinement, which characterize both the brands.
Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir was originally launched in 1997, mimicking the elixir of youth the Queen of Hungary used in the sixteenth century. Perfect for any skin type, it’s a luxurious toning mist that closes enlarged pores, sets the makeup and fights the uneven texture and dullness of the skin, giving it an instant glow.
The Jason Wu for Caudalie Beauty Elixir is the perfect hydrating mist formulated with essential oils of rosemary energize, benzoin that has skin-soothing properties, toning myrrh, lemon balm, peppermint, skin-softening orange blossom, radiance-boosting rose and moisturizing grape pulp extract. You need to shake this unique cocktail before applying it to your skin.
If you have been searching for that special beauty technique used backstage during runway shows that gives the models’ skin that burst of radiance, you have already found it! The Jason Wu for Caudalie Beauty Elixir is used by professional makeup artists during the runway shows between the foundation and powder application to set the makeup, while celebrities love to carry it around and spray it on their faces multiple times a day to smooth and refresh the skin.
Apply it in the morning and evening after cleansing to get rid of enraged pores, before using serum or moisturizer on your skin. For a pleasant cooling effect, you can keep it in the refrigerator before application.
Jason Wu himself is a big fan of the Caudalie brand and a loyal customer at their Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza. Naturally, Mathilde and Jason became good friends and decided to partner on something special, and what other way to do this then bringing back the iconic Beauty Elixir that has won the hearts of so many celebrities, professional makeup artists and models?
