Karl Lagerfeld's holiday capsule collection launched yesterday at Sephora, and as you might expect, it's just as colorful and quirky as the man himself. Sadly, the line isn't available in the US (it can be found at Sephora locations in Singapore and Europe), but it's definitely worth a peek for the sheer cool factor of it all. From gold polish to shadows in the shape of Karl's famous silhouette, take a look at what the never-dull designer has to offer. Le sigh.
Global icon of kawaii Hello Kitty has a hard side, and now she's letting her street cred show in a new line of graffiti-inspired makeup goodies at Sephora. Scrawled with tagger style "hellos" in classic Sanrio red, the collection is urban chic for those of us who love Kitty but can't bring ourselves to carry around her typical bow and rhinestone-speckled products. The brush set ($49), complete with a marked-up Hello Kitty container, is the standout of this latest collection, but if you're not ready to drop half a benjamin, the collection has items starting at $18. Check out the whole adorably tough line.
We're always interested in how liquid eyeliner performs, and recently OnSugar blogger LesleyKat did a really thorough review of Sephora's house brand liquid liner. Check it out:
Sephora Collection Liquid Eyeliner is a great find for any beauty buff. It's on the low end of the price range of eyeliner you'll find on the shelves of a Sephora store. But does it perform? That all depends on what you're looking for in a liner.
Lately a bunch of brands have come out with new formulations and colors of liquid eyeliners. I'm not sure exactly how long Sephora's version has been around, but I don't think they're newbies. When I wear these I get lots of compliments on the colors.
The social tab provides a home for the brand's Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube updates, along with a BeautyTalk feature, where users can get and receive beauty advice ("What foundation will stay on while swimming?" a woman asks.). However it's the interactive catalogue, Beauty Report, where you'll likely spend most of your time. Full of pretty, glossy images, the catalogue includes tips, videos, and suggestions galore on how to re-create the trendiest looks. Of course with a little swipe and tap action, you can shop the picks, too. See more of the app's benefits when you keep reading.
"I've always designed for girls who believe that less is more, and I've stayed true to my aesthetic with this beauty collection," Charlotte told WWD. Offerings will range from a heart-shaped lip gloss ($14) to a vintage-inspired makeup bag ($28).
"The collection was created with my friends and family in mind [including Drea de Matteo, Nicole Richie, and sisters Annabelle and Samantha], and each product is named after their unique style and beauty," Charlotte explained. Are you excited about the new line?
Sephora is partnering with XpresSpa, the nail and massage/facial place you've probably seen in airports, in this venture, so services should have a quick turnaround time, too. Will you be checking it out?
