Just beauty news I happened by this morning…

Max Azria Wants to do Beauty, too

  • Max Azria (BCBG, Max Azria, Herve Leger, BCBGirls) is planning to get into the beauty and fragrance business in the future! He is currently meeting with different potential partners to help him develop the endeavors appropriately. Source

MAC on @ Backstage Beauty

  • “This season, a big focus for product development is on skin. The M.A.C PRO Team will be sampling a new hydrating foundation with a unique cream gel technology, along with an innovative loose powder that are sure to become backstage staples. Also being tested backstage is a new lipstick formulation that delivers color, shine and moisture, with a buildable coverage. M.A.C aims to launch the products tested backstage to consumers in Winter 2008 or Spring 2009.” Source

Sephora in the UK again?

  • “According to press reports, the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned perfumery has been in talks with Marks & Spencer with an eye to opening Sephora shop-in-shops.  If that happens, it would mark Sephora’s return to the U.K. after it shuttered its nine perfumeries there in 2005.” Source

MAC Cosmetics debuted a Fafi website (anyone remember the Barbie one last year?), and right now, you can sign up for notification as information is released.  Thanks to Shefali for alerting us to it!

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

I just wanted to give my dearest readers that many stores around the country are having events to celebrate the Fafi launch.  Some of these include unveilings, which are amazing opportunities to see Fafi before it’s even launched officially!  It is best to call up your local store/counter and ask if they have anything going on.  With that said, I will be attending the unveiling event for Fafi on February 10th at MAC Cosmetics at Valley Fair in San Jose, CA. If you’re in the area and would like to come, and call (408) 244-6533 to RSVP!  I’m scheduled to attend at 5:30pm, but please let me know if you can make it and when you will, because I’m sure I can find a reason to stick around longer!

(And also, this means you can fully expect swatches and a review February 10th/11th!)
