As women, we all have a uniquely rich air about us: We’re inquisitive, strong-minded, sensual, loving and, most importantly, incredibly desirable. In a sense, we’re all queens in our own right. Balancing both grace and influence with the utmost ease — at least we make it look that way. And no one knows that better than one of the most soulful singers — and epitome of femininity — Christina Aguilera. With a voice so incredibly powerful and an ever-changing look all her own, Christina Aguilera brings us her newest fragrance, Christina Aguilera Royal Desire.
Christina Aguilera knows the importance and power of women and the many roles they play. “With this scent, I wanted to create a truly sensory experience,” explains Christina, “and provide a moment every day where women could pamper themselves and feel sexy and beautiful…exuding the sensual elegance of a queen.”
Indulge in the royal splendor of this fragrance with notes of Japanese-influenced yuzu citrus and blackcurrent. Take a moment and engulf yourself in this musky scent as the fragrance crescendos into a floral masterpiece with touches of lily, honeysuckle and rose; a light, powdery sprinkle of iris rounds out the euphoric aromas, creating the most delicate yet striking fragrance — the perfect womanly (and royal) balance.
As the scent entraps you in your own royal exuberance, the fragrance’s flacon design alone will have you coveting this precious jewel. With a curvaceous design and regal textual outlines in rich browns and coquettish pinks, marvel at the regal magnificence found everywhere from the diamond-shaped cap to the fleur de le charm adornment. The silver charm is one of Christina’s favorite features and it comes in four collectible designs: a monogrammed heart, a fan, a kiss and the aforementioned fleur de le, which can be worn and attached to any bracelet and/or necklace.
A queen has many interests and desires and expresses herself in numerous ways, that’s why we’re having two giveaways! Here at BeautyStat, we’re excited to see what makeup looks our royal and loyal readers can come up with, inspired by the Christina Aguilera Royal Desire fragrance. Here are the Top 10 finalists for the Create Your Own Royal Desire Look Contest:
Here’s what Meena had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “The above look was from my wedding day — and I truly felt like a queen. My friend, who is a makeup artist, used all MAC products. She then put a flower in my hair, which completed my queen look. Everyone said I looked like a princess that day!”
Here’s what AngelicEmbers77 had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “To achieve a Royal Desire makeup look I used a face primer followed by a full coverage glowy foundation, topped with a sheer dusting powder to simulate the radiant honeysuckle. Next, I used eye primer with a very sparkly lily white eyeshadow over my entire brow bone and corners of my eyes, then applied a very light dusting of a purple iris-colored shadow over my lids, winging it out a little in the creases. I used a liquid black eyeliner for the cat eye on the top lid and a volume-increasing mascara on both my top and bottom lashes. I then topped the look off with a royal-rose red matte lipstick.”
Here’s what Agi had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “After I use sunscreen on my face, I applied Laura Gellar Spackle all over my face with Dr. Perricone No Foundation Foundation or Josie Moran Tinted Moisturizer. My eyes are topped with LG Tropics collection with more of the gold tone color. I applied Estée Lauder black eyeliner and ‘They Are Real’ Benefit mascara. I used Mally’s Bone eyeliner in between the small of my eyes, bow of my nose, chin and below my eyebrow bone to highlight. I then used MAC or Smashbox highlighter on my cheeks and right below the highlighter I used LG Tropics Baked Blush. I usually end with a light coral lip with gloss or just clear gloss.”
Christina Jeter (www.cjeter.com)
Here’s what Christina had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “For my Royal Desire-inspired look I straightened my hair, used powder-based makeup (Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powered Foundation), bronzer and Vaseline to highlight my smile. I wanted a glamorized, natural look to showcase my beauty.”
Here’s what Dalia had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I wanted to create a sensual and loving look. With pink lipstick, a touch of shadow on the eyes and finishing off with a matte foundation: it’s a very simple and natural look. That’s how I create confidence — knowing that people aren’t looking at my makeup but at me. Still having that elegance of a queen.”
Here’s what Davia had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “This is my ‘simply is stunning’ look. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to make a huge impression… I believe that beauty is for everybody and I try to keep my look the same — easy to recreate and it takes the mystery out of it! I used Stila’s In The Know Palette for eyes, LashFood Conditioning Liquid Liner and Drama Mascara, Pacifica Bronze Coconut and Pearls Bronzing Butter for my cheeks and Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tint in Blood Orange.”
Here’s what Alexandra had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “Every woman wants to be like a queen and feel glamorous. I achieved my finished Royal Desire-inspired makeup look by sweeping my eyes with a pretty shimmery white- gold eyeshadow; I applied fake lashes and mascara to make my eyes pop. I then brushed my cheeks with a rose-colored blush, just to give them a hint of color, and used a highlighter all over my face. To top it off, I used a nude pink lipstick. That completes my Royal Desire look.”
Here’s what Mindy had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I like to bring out my eyes a bit, but I like to go for a natural and glowing look as well.”
Here’s what Donoma had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I was inspired by pictures I saw of yellow and orange honeysuckles and lilies. The products used were: Monistat Chafing Gel and Urban Decay Primer Potion on eyes; Motives Full Coverage Quad in Light as my foundation; MAC Studio Fix in C2, Mehron Coverage Wheel as concealer,
Elf Eyebrow Duo in Dark, NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, Sugarpill Burning Heart Palette, Buck from the Urban Decay Naked Palette in the crease, Embark from MAC in the outer V, and Blanc Type from MAC as the highlight; for eyeliner I used Elf Cream Liner in Black and Maybelline Million Lashes mascara; for cheeks I used Girlatick Matte Bronzer, La Femme Blush in Peach Sparkle and a NYX highlighter from their Butt Naked Palette. For lips, NYX Lip Liner in Cappuccino, Elf Lipstick in Natural Nympth, and Revlon lipgloss.”
Valory R. Mohammed
Here’s what Valory had to say about her Royal Desire-inspired look, “I created my look by using simple, light makeup. A woman is truly beautiful when she uses makeup wisely.”
