Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop is Open!

20140207-120448.jpg

Any time a brand uses social media in a new and exciting way, I am all ears, so to speak. Last year it was NARS and right now that brand is Marc Jacobs.

WHEN
February 7-9 from 11:00AM – 7:00PM, during New York Fashion Week.
WHERE
SoHo at 462 West Broadway
New York City

Posting photos using the hashtag #MJDAISYCHAIN on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook allows you to purchase purchase Daisy Marc Jacobs fragrance samples. The most creative posts will have a chance to win Marc Jacobs handbags and accessories throughout the day. The shop has a social media-friendly vibe with a comfortable lounge, drinks and wi-fi, naturally. Products, fragrance samples and Marc Jacobs fashion items and accessories will be displayed.

Oh, how I would love to see more brands do something like this. How about you? Which brands would you like to see follow suit? This definitely seems like something Urban Decay could do, for one.

Katie Holmes the New Face of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics

Big beauty news announced this morning! Katie Holmes is now the official face of Bobbi Brown — the first-ever celeb face for the brand. According to Bobbi, “Katie Holmes epitomizes the modern ‘Bobbi woman’… I think of her as the modern day Ali McGraw, who I have always admired. When I met her, I thought she was a natural fit for my brand, and felt an instant connection with her.”

In turn, Katie says, “Bobbi is exceptional and Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is a company that we, as women, all turn to because it is makeup that is very accessible and makes you feel pretty. Makeup is powerful and I am thrilled to be a part of this brand”

GREAT choice, Bobbi! Newly single (/free!) Katie is the perfect choice! Beginning in Spring 2013, look out for print ads, counter displays and editorial features with BB + KH. Also, Bobbi will be the lead makeup artist at the Spring/Summer 2013 Holmes & Yang Fashion Show, the line founded by Katie Holmes and celebrity stylist Jeanne Yang.

What's New in Beauty: September 11, 2011

We’re very conscious today at Product Girl just what today is all about. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the families of 9/11. We can’t believe it’s been 10 years, and we’ll certainly never forget…where we were and how the world has changed. Peace and love to everyone this Sunday. We leave you with a few beauty tidbits to wrap up the week.

It’s Fashion Week, which means we’ll see the fashions and beauty trends to come for Spring 2012. NARS created the look for the Joy Cioci runway show, which is all about a “free-spirited woman in pursuit of love.” The NARS look, shown in the face chart, is about Radiant Skin, created with the new Tinted Moisturizers coming out in the spring, as well as a precisely lined, neon-red lip.

Bobbi Brown started a blog! Everything Bobbi has the best tagline: A blog based on truth, beauty and being amazing.  In this post, she also teases about the inspiration behind her forthcoming Spring 2012 Miami collection!

How’s everyone doing this weekend? Still in the middle of a heat wave? I can’t remember a stretch of heat and humidity that’s lasted so long. I’ve been sleeping in my basement for a week! And, I fear for all of my beauty products in my upstairs master bathroom — my RMS Beauty Raw Coconut Cream is pure liquid now. Even the constant blast of AC just can’t quite keep it cool enough up there. While we’ve been sweating, here’s what’s been going on in the world of beauty!
