Sephora-Lotus-Moisturizing-and-Soothing-Eye-Mask

If you’re a regular PurseBlog reader, you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m a product junkie of the highest order. (VIB Rouge, even.) You guys are kind enough to occasionally indulge me in my desire to talk about the kinds of face spackle and hair goop I’ve been using lately, and today, I’d like to do just that.

Jessica Alba is much more public about spending time with her family than other celebs, and she seems oddly undeterred by paparazzi attention. She brunches, she does playdates, she promotes The Honest Company, she makes office and juice runs and she seems generally content to live out her life in the public eye.

Céline

Like most brands, Céline usually distributes photos and information about its upcoming collections about six months in advance, and thanks to the wonders of social media, that information then becomes widely available public knowledge almost immediately.

If you’re one of our readers who has marveled incredulously at the meteoric rise of Mansur Gavriel‘s simple, traditional bags, some new research may help explain the phenomenon a little more clearly. According to a study performed by NPD Group and e-commerce firm Stylitics, younger consumers are much less interested in big, traditional luxury brands than their older bag-shopping counterparts.

It’s always notable when the eight celebs we feature in these round-ups are mostly carrying the same three designers. It indicates a potential shift in trends, or, alternatively, a sudden surplus of designer freebies. In any case, it gets our attention.
