SEPHORA’S SHOPPABLE INSPIRATION BOARD

Sephora-The-Beauty-Board

Done well, Sephora’s shopping platform could be a gamechanger. Launched two weeks ago, its new Beauty Board is a Pinterest-esque gallery of user-generated photos, which customers engage with, posting reviews, comments and tips. It’s what beauty forums do best, but this adds an all-important shoppable component and the ability to share widely on other platforms. With mobile’s increasing importance in syncing content with commerce, I imagine we’ll be seeing a lot more brands attempting similar feats. Read more here. Continue reading

Vogue time

4 Nigel Shafran Paris Avenue Montaigne

What a surprise to see a Nigel Shafran shoot in Vogue. And styled by Joe McKenna too. Shafran’s last Vogue shoot was 21 years ago and he has brought his quiet observational style to the the UK title with this ode to consumerism (beating Karl to the punch), shot in the temples of Vuitton, Chanel and Celine on Avenue Montaigne… Continue reading

Wearables, schmarables, just give me Chanel!

Wearables, shmarables… If you ask me we’re a long way from the point where wearable technology is truly useful and can’t-live-without. Until then I’ll stick with the traditional fash-tech accessory. ..mostly those inspired by or made by Chanel.

Let’s be honest, no one lusts after Chanel’s RTW the way they perve over the accessories. The bags (even ludicrous hula-hoop ones), the sock-shoes, the trainers (I’m still getting asked about these)… And then there are the beauty products which are accessories in their own right. I mean, which other brand produces such hotly anticipated collectables? Continue reading

FIRST LOOK AT TOM FORD’S FACE PALETTE

Tom Ford face palette

Last week I met with the PR for Tom Ford Beauty, where she arranged all the latest spring lip and nail colours before me. Most exciting was a first look at the new (and first ever) Tom Ford face palette (above) due in April. Even the MD of the store we were in snuck over from his meeting at the next table to get a peek. In the pics below you can also just see the Lip and Cheek Shimmers (bottom right) which also land on counter in April. Continue reading

Oh man, I am so done with winter already! Luckily, every day of pure white cloud overhead brings another postie delivery of spring beauty goodness…

TORY BURCH BEAUTY IS HERE
Tory-Burch-LiptickTory-Burch-Blusher-bronzer
Tory Burch Beauty has now arrived (at Harrods and Toryburch.co.uk) and it’s a nicely considered offer. Packaging-wise, the gold-on-orange fretwork is gorgeous, although you’ll be slightly disappointed if expecting something weighty as it’s not metal. On the upside, that makes it lighter and easily portable. The products themselves are similar to Aerin in terms of wearability. Continue reading

Tory Burch make-up is coming!

Tory-Burch-make-up

If you’re a Tory Burch fan, you’ll want to mark January 20th on your iCal. Joining Aerin and Michael Kors, it’s the latest cosmetics (and fragrance line) to arrive in the UK from the Estee Lauder beauty stable.

As with Aerin, Kors and even Tom Ford, it’s all about the angular packaging with golden accents. (Does Estee Lauder only have one lipstick mould?) But if you’re a Burch fan then I think you’ll love the distinctive orange and gold casing complete with double T insignia. British Beauty Blogger has the story here

Blue Christmas!

Navaz - DRG

I absolutely adore this selfie Christmas card sent to me by the team at Jo Malone London. When this photo was taken back in the summer at their Christmas preview, I had no idea it would pop into my inbox several months later as a GIF. But here’s me and Santa swathed in matching blue outfits (completely coincidentally I might add), surrounded by Jo Malone’s jumbo baubles, bows and splendid cream boxes.

This just leaves me to wish a Merry Christmas to all Disneyrollergirl readers, partners and blog buddies. It’s been an amazing year and I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings us!
