NARS Opens Its First Flagship Boutique!

Since launching his eponymous brand sixteen years ago, François Nars had dreams of opening a namesake boutique. After years of searching for the quintessential site, he found the perfect location in the West Village and turned to Fabien Baron to help bring his vision to life. 

The NARS boutique will officially open its doors at 413 Bleecker Street in NYC on February 10, 2011!

By now you’ve probably seen the above12-lipstick “logo treatment” in ad campaigns in and around New York City. “NARS 413 BLKR” was conceptualized with Fabien’s team at Baron & Baron and the shortened street name boasts an insiders’ vibe with a cheeky nod to the neighborhood. Jungle Red Lipstick, one of the first 12 lipsticks that launched NARS Cosmetics, provides the black-and-white logo with a bold pop of color, a color scheme that will also be seen within the boutique.

More details will be revealed soon on the NARS Facebook page.

Get Party Perfect With P&G Beauty and Grooming

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The holidays are a time to do for others. But just because you’re busy showing others how much you care doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take the time to spoil yourself pretty.

You don’t have to worry about looking less than lovely this holiday season. P&G Beauty and Grooming brands like COVERGIRL, Clairol, Olay and Pantene offer the following dependable (and affordable!) products so you can look fabulously festive for any occasion – planned or impromptu.

Olay Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller is a concentrated anti-aging treatment featuring a pen-shaped applicator that gently massages skin to fight the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye area. It sends your under eye bags packing in 30 seconds, so you look fresh and radiant all season long.

When the occasion calls for looking beautiful at a moment’s notice, makeup should never disappoint.

COVERGIRL’s Simply Ageless Foundation provides a flawless finish without settling into fine lines and wrinkles throughout the day. The lightweight yet buildable formula goes on sheer – making imperfections seem to disappear while improving skin condition over time.

Shopping, cooking, decorating and entertaining rarely leave time for hair color throughout the season. Clairol Perfect 10 by Nice ‘n Easy gives hair high gloss, high shine and gorgeous color in just ten minutes. Got grays? No problem, silver belles! Perfect 10 delivers 100 percent, long-lasting gray coverage.

The holidays are prime time for unexpected photos, and you shouldn’t hide behind dry, frizzy locks. Pantene Pro-V Restore Beautiful Lengths Shine Enhance Replenishing Mask has an advanced formula to treat rough, dull hair and leave it looking and feeling smooth and silky.

So even when the weather outside looks frightful, thanks to P&G Beauty and Grooming, you’ll look and feel delightful.

MAC Venomous Villains

‘Member back in May when I scooped y’all about MAC Cosmetics’ clever collabo with Disney? Well, Venomous Villains is almost here and Spoiled Pretty has a sneak peek at the collection.

A potion to poison, an apple to bite, a spell to cast…bad never looked so good.

Don’t you love it? A MAC and Disney collaboration to celebrate the dark side in every one of us, in a glamorous sort of way. Who’s the fairest one of all? Four separate mini-collections, in haute animated couture. The incomparable Cruella de Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen, each featured on one ultra primary displayer Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent and The Princess and the Frog’s Dr. Facilier are both up to no good on their own.
