Picture yourself shopping for a new bath mat or maybe a set of potholders and then bam! Your cart turns the corner and you’re faced with a brightly lit, glossy L’Oréal Paris boutique in the midst of Bed Bath & Beyond. If you’re on the Upper East Side in New York City, this dream is now a reality.

StyleList recently ventured to the beauty oasis where amidst the vacuums and towels, we found all of the brands’ products — from cosmetics and haircare to skincare and hair color.

Fortuitously, there are Bed Bath & Beyond associates also trained as beauty ambassadors by the L’Oréal Paris team that can help you choose between demi-, semi- and permanent hair color or help you determine which facial cleanser suits you best.

Talk about a convenient shopping experience!

“This is L’Oréal Paris first ‘complete’ boutique, and offers a wide-range of hair color, hair care, cosmetics and skincare products. As the number one beauty brand in the world, we are thrilled to offer our consumers one-on-one access to our latest technologies and the highest quality products,” Nathalie Kristo, Senior Vice President, Marketing, L’Oréal Paris told StyleList. “With help from our brand ambassadors, consumers visiting the L’Oréal Paris boutique at the Bed Bath & Beyond’s Upper East Side location will receive expert advice and tips.”

We wondered why did L’Oréal Paris choose Bed Bath & Beyond for their first shop-in-shop?

Bed Bath & Beyond is an accessible one-stop-shopping destination for many consumers. Bed Bath & Beyond’s Upper East Side location was the perfect fit for the L’Oréal Paris flagship boutique, as it allows busy New Yorkers access to convenient and accessible high quality beauty products at affordable prices. It’s an iconic retailer and we couldn’t be happier to partner with them,” adds Kristo.

We suspect we’ll see more of these partnerships popping up in lifestyle mega-stores soon.

Primer Matters Series~ Fab! Tried It: Philosophy “the present: clear makeup”

22 Oct

Philosophy’s The Present: Clear Makeup boasts this on their bottle: “do you crave airbrushed skin do your wrinkles and pores deserve to appear minimized are you searching for a new foundation then we have a present for you.” Of course as I read it I answered an astounding YES!

Being plagued with acne as a teenager and as an adult, there are just some pores that are still open and scars that are still around that I would like to diminish more. I am curious after reading rave reviews of being a smooth and light weight primer, and after it was featured on The Today Show in their “favorite things” segment, what it would do for a person with skin like mines?

So, I ran off to my local favorite beauty supply store to pick this up and giving you the dish on whether or not it lives up to the hype.

the Present: Clear Makeup ($25)

So… what do we think? The smell is that of lavender– pretty pleasant. With just a dime size squirt out of this bottle, it covered my face with a non greasy feeling moisturizer. I applied it with my fingers and there was no residue or sticky feeling. To the touch shortly after, my face felt smooth… so now to apply we apply foundation.

After

After my first usage of this product, it did assist my foundation in going on smooth, it did minimize the appearance of my pores and I am hoping to see continual results. I will keep you posted.

Until then, BeautyFab! recommends this product. Have you tried this product? Tell me if you will or what you thought.
