Beauty agenda: MAC Bloggers' Obsession, Hussein Chalayan fragrance
Here are some of the biggest beauty events and product launches coming up over the week.
International Beauty Show
Las Vegas, USA
Some of the industry's hottest brands including Stila Cosmetics, Minx Nails, OPI, and Brazilian Blowout will exhibit at the pro-only event at the Las Vegas Convention Center that also hosts workshops, stage performances, competitions, and product launches.
Justin Bieber fragrance launch
The teen star's first women's fragrance Someday will come to US stores including Macy's, Sephora, Dillard's and Nordstrom, with prices range from $35 to $55. Proceeds from the fragrance sales will go to charities such as Pencils of Promise and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
MAC Blogger's Obsession launch
The first complete line designed by beauty bloggers - if you don't count Lauren Luke's collection for Sephora - was developed in MAC's laboratories in Toronto a few months ago by nine of the leading experts of the blogosphere, including The Makeup Girl, Temptalia, Lipstick Powder N Paint, Beauty Blogging Junkie, Afrobella, Beauty Maverick, Makeup and Beauty Blog, Nitrolicious and The Shades of U. Lipglosses will come in different shades of pink and red, and eyeshadows will carry names such as Parisian Skies for a grey-blue or Jealousy Wakes for an emerald green with pearly shimmer. Each item will cost $14.50. To stick with the digital theme, the collection will retail exclusively online.
Hussein Chalayan fragrance launch
The London-based fashion designer will release his first signature scent, backed by vanguard Japanese label Comme des Garçons, at London's Dover Street Market. Inspired by his fall 2007 collection that was called Airborne, the fragrance ($95) will carry the same name, featuring notes of neroli, lemon, bergamot, lentiscus, juniper berry, and cedarwood.
