After last season’s gorgeous debut, Estée Lauder will be back at Derek Lam for Spring, with its creative makeup director, Tom Pecheux, at the helm. We can’t wait to see what the famed face painter will dream up this time around, but we’re even more intrigued by another piece of information we just gleaned from our inside sources: Nail guru Jin Soon Choi will be making her second appearance backstage to provide pro manis and pedis with a new polish from the New York makeup giant’s forthcoming Relaunch Collection. That’s right; beginning next March, Estée Lauder will be debuting a range of eight permanent and eight limited-edition lacquers that brings back discontinued old favorites and introduces new colors—all with its True Vision Technology that wraps concentrated pigments into a crystalline laminate for a multi-dimensional look. Seeing as how the brand’s latest lacquer releases (see above) sent our hearts aflutter, interested parties may want to read our backstage review very, very closely.
Sparkly lips fit for the club were only part of the story backstage at Doo.Ri yesterday. Manicurist Jin Soon Choi was also on hand with a brand-new, as-yet-unnamed nail lacquer that she revealed to Style.com will be part of—wait for it—her second collection for MAC Cosmetics. Yes, Choi will be releasing another line of limited-edition polishes for the beauty brand at the end of the summer, which will include the warm, shimmering cement gray varnish she debuted at Eye Beam Gallery yesterday. The almost-putty color “complements, not crushes” strong clothes, she said, adding that the flecks of gold in the creamy polish provide a touch of sophistication. Just like that, we already know what our signature manicure will be when the Spring shows come around in September.
