Fancy by Jessica Simpson ($59.00) is a sweet, dessert-ish scent. This is Simpson’s first fragrance, though she did have a beauty line called “Dessert Beauty,” which featured sweet, food-related scents. Fancy is not as cloying or as over-the-top, but there is still a distinct sweetness from the caramel and vanilla creme notes. I find in the beginning, it is too sweet for me, but after a half hour or so, it calms down and gets a healthy reduction in sweetness. It’s still noticeably sweet, don’t get me wrong, it just doesn’t make me feel like I’m in a bakery.
Fashion Week kicks off this Friday, September 5th, 2008 — how excited are you? In February, Temptalia was there for a couple of days in person, but this year, we’ll be remote bloggin’ it. There’s been an increase in access to the shows for those not in attendance, and it looks like MAC wants to bring backstage to your e-doorstep!
MAC Cosmetics plan to capitalize on consumers’ rising, and many say reality TV-induced, interest in fashion and their curiosity about the shows behind the scenes. For the first time in the 15 years it has sponsored Fashion Week is exposing the backstage goings-on at New York, London, Milan, and Paris shows via Twitter.
Through a Facebook widget set to launch sometime next week, fans will be able to access tweets from individual pro-team MAC artists who will have to do a minimum of 15 tweets per day.
The initiative supports the branch’s strategy to use alternative media to gain awareness and get new fans, many of whom are active in social networks, explains Laura Elkins, VP of global consumer marketing and artist relations. She adds that it also supports MAC’s “heritage in fashion.”
“We want to engage fashion fans, beauty junkies, and loyalists. [Backstage] is not accessible to them usually,” says Evans. “It’s a great way for them to connect with our senior artists.”
The team will feature the Twitter initiative on its Facebook group and, working with Paul Wilmot Communications, promote the initiative via outreach to fashion and beauty bloggers and online magazines. — Source
Is it something you’re interested in? Will you be watching the widget? I know I’ll be totally amazed at the artists being able to manage twitter while working. Backstage is crazy-insane, always rushed, and just all around chaotic. It’s hard to imagine an artist having a free moment (or hand, for that matter) to “tweet.” (My twitter page!)
