New in the world of beauty
PERFUME. I tear out those perfume samples in the mags all the time--but they sort of smell like paper. So people shop online--but how can you tell if a scent meshes well with your own chemistry? Pinrose.com has a quiz based on syesthesia--the brain phenom of senses mixing, as in say, smelling a color. Or you could go to The Harmonist (harmonist.com) to use Chinese astrology to match yourself to a new perfume. Or--if you insist--you can get two samples of scent for $10 at phlur.com.
NAILS. There is new technology. The Inail S8 printer ($2000+) will be coming to nail salons. It deposits designs on your nails. For home use, Preemadonna's Nailbot--pick a design, stick your finger in the machine...for $199 by year's end.
BEAUTY BOXES. From Influenster;s VoxBoxes (influenster.com)--Blog or write reviews and you can get free full-size products to review. With PlumPerfect's Girl Seeks Sample plan (plumperfect.com), you upload a photo and get customized suggestions of products. Samples are two bucks or less.
WANT TO LOOK LIKE SOMEONE? With Rimmel London's new app (iTunes, google), you click on a face with makeup you love and learn which of the brand's products will achieve it.
And new and hot now in beauty nutrition? Fortified Honey. Forget green juice--it's over. Go to naturopathica.com.
You look mahvelous, darling!
