Whoa! Who got rousted out of bed for a candid “before” photo at 3 am?
Whaddya mean, that’s an “after” photo?
Yep, it’s true. The photo at left represents a new “look” (I use the quotes because otherwise you might not really believe they’re proposing this as an organized and thought-out approach to makeup) by the fine folks at NARS for the Thakoon Panichgul show at NY Fashion Week. I describe the look as “raggedy-hair, unwashed, puffy-eyed, and sullen,” but NARS lead makeup artist Diane Kendal calls it “fresh, beautiful, luminous, and quite confident.” Um, OK.
I do not predict great sales success for this so-called “look.” But what do I know? I’m a cynic.
HauteLook has LORAC cosmetics on Wednesday; sale begins at 11 am Eastern/8 am Pacific.
There is a scandalously good sale going on at Tarte: code ECSURVEY gets you 50% off everything (!) plus a free Double Dose Berry Boost and Gloss lip gloss that shows up automatically in your cart. I don’t have an end date for this one, and unfortunately some of their more popular products are out of stock at the moment. Still, if you’re looking to pick up a cheek stain for half off, it’s a great deal. Free shipping with a $40 purchase.
Previously announced sales still in progress:
