Neiman Marcus Fashion Island :: Project Beauty
Friends, I’ve seen paradise with my own eyes. This dreamland is called the beauty department at Neiman Marcus.
Bright and early, before the store doors were even unlocked to the public, I was nestled inside Neiman Marcus Fashion Island in Newport Beach where I was submerged in wonderland of beauty. A make-up fantasyland if you will. Imagine a world where flowers bloomed Tom Ford Cherry Lush lipsticks and air scented to smell like Maison Francis Kurkdjian’s Amyris Homme. Where seas were as smooth as La Mer and streets were paved with Chanel Vertigo Le Vernis.
Project Beauty is the the event of the season where fashion, beauty and make-up trends come together for an explosion of fabulousness. Every year, beauty’s royalty showcase what every girl must be armed with in their product arsenal to stand-out and resemble the trendsetter they are. Representatives from BMR, Bobbi Brown, B the Product, Christian Dior, Cle due Peau Beaute, Estee Lauder, Fresh, Guerlain, Jo Malone, Kaplan MD, Kate Somerville, Kiehls Since 1851, La Mer, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Nuface, Orlane Paris, Tata Harper, Tom Ford, VENeffect, were on hand not only to introduce the products, but handed out baskets of goodies valued at $500 or more, to lucky audience members. The woman next to me…NEXT TO ME…won the La Mer. La Sigh.
The bottom line…
All you need in life is Tom Ford Cherry Lush lipstick and Ombre de Hyacinth. Truth.
Women do not need anything else to feel sexy, sophisticated and naughty. Maybe a little mascara…maybe. In fact, those two gifts from Tom Ford will give any woman the confidence to conquer the world. Knowing that Neiman Marcus will soon be opening a color boutique Tom Ford Cosmetics, is better than finding a comfortable pair of gorgeous stilettos; however the waiting and anticipation is similar to a root canal.
And please look at all this Girl Candy we received!
