Where’d You Go, Bernadette (2019)

Medicines, skincare and some make-up can be seen in Bernadette’s bathroom cabinet.

On the far left (top shelf) there’s a tube of Dr. Hauschka rose day cream.

I don’t usually cover medications, but this one was served on a silver platter: it’s Hyland’s muscle therapy gel with arnica

On the far right there’s a bottle of red nail polish by Butter London.

On the central lower shelf there’s a bottle of Klorane Eau de brillance à la cire de magnolia detangling spray.

The tall white bottle is Avène PhysioLift smoothing night balm.

Next to it, another Klorane product – Lotion florale démaquillante au bleuet apaisant, an eye make-up removing lotion.

Night Bloom (2020)

Night Bloom [1] is the latest creature of the talented filmmaker and actress Coco Baudelle, a short film that has been selected by several festivals around the world, including the 2020 Venice Shorts. In a bit more than 5 minutes, we are taken into a dreamy world of white roses drenched in rain, echoes from Jennifer’s Body by Karyn Kusama, satin ribbons and a seemingly endless sleep, all accented by wonderful piano scores. Lucky for us, some scenes feature beauty products, which I’ve listed as follows.

The tall bottle with black cap on the right side of the shot is Chanel Hydra Beauty essence mist.

The plastic bottle with pink cap in the beauty case is Glossier Milky Oil make-up remover.

From the left to the right: the jar contains Aquaphor healing ointment

The Chanel white tube is Hydra Beauty mask

The tall pink bottle is Glossier exfoliating solution

The white brush with nylon tufts is by Mason Pearson

The lipstick in the floral case behind the nail polish bottle is by Gucci

Last, there’s Chanel Joues Contraste blush.

The nail polish seen in the previous shot is Chanel Le Vernis velvet nail colour in Ultime.

Compagni di scuola (1988)

compagnidiscuola2_bornunicornFederica (Nancy Brilli) is a glamourous woman who invites her high-school class mates to her beautiful mansion 15 years after their diploma. They will reminisce the best years of their lives but also bitterly reflect on their present. The opening sequence is set in the hostess’ bedroom, where’s she’s applying her make-up.

giorgiobeverlyhills_bornunicornThe first object that captures the attention is Giorgio Beverly Hills, the tuberose bomb created by Bob Aliano in 1981. This perfume, so popular in the 1980s, makes us understand Federica is one who doesn’t shy away from bold fashion and fragrance statements.

compagnidiscuola1_bornunicornThe guests soon arrive at Federica’s villa, but she’s still in her bedroom. She will soon go downstairs to meet her friends, but in this short scene we can take another look at her vanity.

azzaro9miniature_bornunicornThe miniature bottle by the mirror is Azzaro 9 by Loris Azzaro, another white floral fragrance launched in 1984.
