Burberry opens a store in London called Burberry Beauty Box located near the Chanel and Dior beauty boutiques. The Beauty Box is filled with two floors of beauty with the use of modern technology to showcase products and services. A digital chandelier was made using moving iPads to display beauty content. A digital runway nail bar lets customers virtually test nail colors on different skin tones on the screen. And if that wasn’t enough…The Beauty Box has a stylist available to assist customers how to coordinate your makeup with your accessories. (In my infomercial voice) But wait…there’s more!!! They also offer mini mani’s and fragrance consultations.

WOW…is all I can say. I am beyond impressed and jealous at the same time that The Beauty Box is not in the US for me to just sit and be amazed all day long!!! I guess I will have to find a way to get to London soon!!! (Insert Shameless Plug) If anyone would like to sponsor me… I am open to discuss 😉 LBVS!!!

Physicians Formula is getting a makeover to make the brand more glamorous. The new tag line will be Rx for Glamour a blend between health and glamour. New products will be unveiled in 2014 like a Super CC+ Color Correction Cream, Sexy Booster eye products and a Bronze Booster Glow – Boosting BB Cream, SPF 20.

Not only am I sold on the newness of the brand but I am also super excited about the Bronze Booster Glow – Boosting BB Cream. A Bronzer and a BB Cream all in one with a SPF??? Yes! Yes! Yes!!! Physicians Formula will give me bronzing life this summer and I can’t wait!!!

Pink is the color for spring according the trends of makeup brands like YSL, Nars and Givenchy.

I don’t know about you but I’m sold!!! Pink is one of my favorite colors…Yay Pink!!!

Herbal Essence is upgrading with a premium line to launch in January named Naked!!! The products are free of heavy residues, parabens and dyes.

This line sounds interesting but I wonder why it’s not Sulfate Free if it’s called Naked??? Things that make you go hmm…IJS

Kiss Products are on the edge of releasing groundbreaking nail technology like artificial nails with gel finish, nail tattoos, nail art kits and a nail repair system. They are also launching gel nail strips that can be set with a special topcoat or LED lamp that will last up to 2 weeks.

This sounds interesting and I am willing to give it a try. Manicure Monday here I come!!! LOL


Pantone announces Radiant Orchid as the color of the year for 2014 with the color expanding into hues of fuchsia, purple and pink.

I’m looking forward to spring already!!!


Attention all mani divas!!! There is a phone app just for you called Mani Diaries. It’s a social networking app to unite mani divas together to share manis, pedis and nail art.

Sounds cool but not my thing.



Trish McEvoy launches a Portable Beauty Collection with 2 palettes of colors. One for eyes and the other for lips and cheeks with a makeup bag and brushes included for $98.

This is a cool deal and the colors look like they can actually match all skin tones. The price point is amazing considering everything that is inside…sign me up!!!


So there you have it…the beauty 411 for week ending December 14th!!! What do you think??? Is there anything this week that excites you???
