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.

La vérité (2019)

masonpearson_woodenbrush_bornunicornLumir (Juliette Binoche) and her daughter Charlotte (Clémentine Grenier) are visiting Fabienne on the set of her latest film. While Charlotte is sitting at her grandmother’s vanity, we can see a Mason Pearson box by the mirror. Later in the film, Lumir is holding a brush: it’s a wooden brush with boar bristle and nylon tufts by the British brand.

Otherhood (2019)

 

 

 

The scene where Carol (Angela Bassett) gets a drastic hair make-over thanks to Erin (Heidi Gardner) takes place at a real NYC’s Lower East Side salon, the Fringe.  So it’s quite obvious to see the salon’s own haircare line (Fringe & Friends, launched in 2007) on display, along with the ubiquitous Mason & Pearson brush.

American Horror Story S08E01 (The End)

ahsapocalypse_e01_bornunicorn (1)ahsapocalypse_e01_bornunicorn (2)The episode opens with an ordinary scene: the heiress Coco St. Pierre Vanderbilt (Leslie Grossman) is getting a haircut. She wants to become an Instagram influencer: she has no intention to “show her full ass crack” so her hairstyle “has to be on point.” Her hair stylist is Mr. Gallant (Evan Peters), who comes from a rich family just like Coco but, unlike her, has been able to make something out of himself: he’s a celebrity hair stylist, “the new Chris McMillan“.

Stevie Nicks’ Dressing Table

stevienicks_bornunicornI don’t know when this picture of Stevie Nicks was taken, but I’ve been obsessed with it since I found it online. She’s sitting at a tiled dressing table, where there are three products which have immediately caught my attention. All of them are by Erno Laszlo: a bottle (among meds), a jar and a soap.

ernolaszlofacepowder_bornunicornImpossible to say if the bottle contained a lotion, a toner or the Shake-It tinted treatment. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure the jar contained a face powder. But the same packaging was used for other products (including the famous Active pHelityl cream), so I could be wrong. The soap on the far right is Active Phelityl.

masonpearson_bornunicornLast but not least, the brush next to the jar is by Mason Pearson.
