Fashion Week may be over, but the fun has just begun. Lord and Taylor‘s new state of the art cosmetics department has finally opened! Makeup maven Bobbi Brown and her beauty team will be making an appearance at Lord and Taylor on Fifth Ave. Thursday September 23. Bobbi will be in the store signing copies of her new book Beauty Rules from noon to 2 p.m. Her beauty team will be there until 7 p.m. giving makeovers and consultations. Please make an appointment with the Bobbi Brown counter before arriving.
I just had an amazing evening at Lord & Taylor in which I along with NYC’s most stylish bloggers, got an inside look into their expanding cosmetics department. Armed with hot pink hard hats, we were given a tour of the first floor construction soon to be home to a revolutionary cosmetics department featuring lighting that is as close to the natural rays of the sun as possible ensuring that everyone leaves with the correct shades of makeup. It will also be home to a state of the art Chanel counter, the first of its kind in North America. To my delight, they have chosen to restore much of the store to its original Fifth Ave. glory using the same materials and uncovering the charming architecture of nearly a century ago.
After the tour, we sampled numerous beauty products accompanied by more champagne. I am head over heels for T3 hairdryers and flat irons. Having won an Opal Sonic Infusion System, I can now take the spa home with me as I fight the appearance of eye wrinkles. I am very impressed with Lord & Taylor’s savvy style when it comes to the business of beauty. I look forward to the grand opening of their unparalleled cosmetics department.
