According To Le Métier de Beauté, Fashion Rules!-------
When we woke up this morning, we thought, “Today is going to be a banner day. Not only are Balenciaga and Balmain showing in Paris within hours of each other, but 30 Rock will finally return with new episodes after being bumped by the Olympics for the past…seemingly forever.” Sadly, after a quick perusal of the NBC Web site, it appears as though we will have to wait another week for 30 Rock, but Neiman Marcus’ Fashion Rules event may be just solace enough. At store locations across the country, the luxury retailer will be fêting fashion and beauty with trunk shows, free spa treatments, and mini makeovers, all while the Champagne and canapés flow freely. There’s another reason to make haste to a location near you, if the bubbly and hand massages aren’t enough of a draw: Inspired by the Spring runways, Le Métier de Beauté will be debuting its Le Petit Poudrier Collection, a series of ten palettes that were exclusively created in celebration of tonight’s event and designed in homage to the best of backstage beauty. No bigger than a credit card, the four lip palettes, two face palettes, and four eye palettes—which boast a preview of a new cream eye shadow formula that will be available in its full size early next year—give you the freedom to keep your favorite seasonal makeup trends with you wherever you go. Sitcom hilarity can wait until next Thursday.
