Meet Michelle Phan at Sephora Times Square!


On Thursday, December 6th, from 12pm to 4pm, Lancôme video makeup artist and YouTube sensation Michelle Phan will take over the newly renovated Sephora Times Square to unveil her Betty Boop-inspired makeup look, created with Lancôme’s NEW Hypnôse Star mascara.

Inspired by the sensuous femininity of 1930’s Hollywood films, Hypnôse Star exudes theatrical glamour. Encased in a sparkling tube, the volumizing mascara coats lashes in a decadent formula that makes for a spotlight-stealing gaze. A dual-sided brush creates ultra-glam eyes by building intense volume at the lash line and finishing with alluring length and curl.

Michelle Phan boasts a following of millions, with over half a billion views on YouTube. Beloved for her makeup savvy, Michelle was the beauty industry’s first video makeup artist. Michelle is also the founder of For All Women Network (FAWN), a new YouTube channel dedicated to beauty and style.

New! Illamasqua launches two new US exclusive colors!

Illamasqua US Exclusive Blue Nail Varnishes

From the runway shows of New York and London to city street styles, shades of blue continue to adorn the talons of the style makers and trendsetters alike. Inspired by the hottest color of the season, Illamasqua introduces two new blue nail varnishes in the beautifully expressive shades of Noble and Cameo to be sold exclusively at Sephora and Sephora inside JCP.

Illamasqua’s Director of Product Development David Horne specifically mixed these two complementary hues to compliment Illamasqua’s range of over 50 bold shades of chip resistant, long wearing nail varnishes.

“It’s fun to play with the two shades together; I would recommend a modern french, or using Noble as an accent nail while painting the rest of the hand in Cameo. Blue nails just add the perfect pop of color!”

Prepare nails with one coat of Illamasqua Base Coast, then using the superfine brush provided, apply two coats for vibrant, rich color. Follow with Illamasqua Top Coat for a high gloss, long lasting finish.

Available exclusively at selected Sephora stores nationwide, Sephora in JCP and online at www.sephora.com from October 4, 2012

Noble & Cameo – Illamasqua Blue Nail Varnishes $14

 

My newest obsession is Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15

About a month ago I headed into Sephora in search of some new foundation. I needed something that felt weightless, covered my sun spots, was waterproof and had sunscreen in it. Without hesitation, the Sephora clerk pointed me in the direction of Tarte’s Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation SPF 15. She asked if I’d like help color-matching the foundation, and I let her work her magic. She applied the foundation with Sephora’s Airbrush brush (#55).

To say I’ve been applying my foundation wrong all these years is an understatement.  The Airbrush brush has COMPLETELY changed the way I put on foundation. It literally makes your skin look like you’ve been airbrushed. It is hands down THE BEST way to apply foundation. She showed me the different ways to put on foundation (a sponge just soaks it all up – what a waste!), and the brush is the way to go. Trust me. Follow this link to buy online, or head into Sephora and ask for it. You’ll be so happy you did.

Back to the foundation. I loooooooooooooove this foundation. It feels absolutely heavenly on my skin. Your skin doesn’t feel weighed down, it feels and looks amazing! It’s only $34, and you can also pick it up at Sephora or Ulta.

Like airbrushed foundation without the air! Achieve total skin balance thanks to this Amazonian clay-powered foundation. Whether your skin is oily, dry, or combination, skin-smart Amazonian clay will intuitively adjust to address your complexion concerns. This revolutionary foundation also reduces the appearance of pores, while minimizing discolorations and imperfections to ensure a perfectly flawless complexion. Get 12 hours of flawless coverage with this long-wearing UVA/UVB SPF 15 formula. With a weightless texture this buildable and blendable, everyone can achieve skin that looks healthy and natural.

Transcend into the endlessly glamorous world of MARCHESA where intricate dreams are spun into breathtaking opulence. From every ornate drape to each exquisitely executed detail, Marchesa’s signature touch is as effortless as it is seductive. With an air of mystery and desire Marchesa masterfully creates their premiere elixir, a truly enchanting scent available exclusively at Sephora. One spray will take you to a world of fantasy and imagination that is unforgettable, enticing and uniquely their own.

“Like with our dress designs, we wanted our scent to feel sensual and feminine yet still embrace and celebrate the wearers unique style and sensibility” said Georgina Chapman, designer and co-founder of MARCHESA. “It is the essence of our muse transformed into a fragrance that distinctly captures her in her most beautiful and purest form .”

MARCHESA parfum d’extase opens with light florals, giving way to a combination of fresh and woody notes that create the scent’s complexity and beauty. Iris is the secret to the fragrance’s richness, capturing the delicate essence of its flower petals and the dark sensuality of its precious roots. Complementing the timeless elegance of the Iris flower are the beautifully fresh elements of Freesia and Young Violet Leaves to help lead the fragrance into the heart. Comprised of Night Blooming Jasmine, the heart weightlessly transcends the senses into the sensuous background. Here the Iris Root blends together with Ambrox and Musks, the finishing touch to the sublime composition of this intoxicating and unforgettable elixir. Marchesa’s new fragrance clearly defines their distinct artist vision and transports you into an ethereal world.

With as much discipline, precision and care given to each piece they create, the co-founders of Marchesa collaborated with SEPHORA to develop the latest sculptural representation of the brand. Capturing the ecstasy of a perfect moment, the fragrances’ elegantly designed bottle was crafted by Malin Ericson, Creative Director at Vanessa Stevens + Company to evoke the same look and feel of exotic raw quartz crystal, a powerful gemstone known for its positive energy and abundant healing qualities. Each bottles shape uniquely emulates the natural facets and distinct contours of the raw quartz and features individually set crystal accents that exude the confident and alluring femininity signature to the Marchesa design.
