It's here: Makeup Museum Inventory!

Curator's Corner, 2/16/2014

CC logoIs it spring yet?  No?  Well, while we wait for everything to thaw check out these links from this week and last. 

- Loved this slideshow of '90s beauty products from Elle. 

- Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog spotted a new eyewear line from Bobbi Brown.  I am intrigued. 

- Beautylish shares quite an illuminating article on the history of Max Factor and the man behind the brand. 

- The Nailympics just concluded in Rome.  I found the highlights much more entertaining than the Sochi Olympics, sadly.

- So this is exciting:  NARS will be teaming up with Phillip Lim for a nail polish line to be released in the fall.

- Less exciting is that Madonna will be introducing a Japan-exclusive skincare line.  I'm honestly a bit surprised she hasn't jumped on the beauty bandwagon prior to this - it seems that every pop star has their own fragrance or nail polish line. 

The random:

- Uglydoll is releasing yet another Babo.  However, I'm not finding him to be nearly as adorable as the rest of the little scamps in the Babo family, plus I'm not a Kiss fan, so I think this will be the first Babo I will not be purchasing.

- Sooooo dying to hit up the newly opened Ladurée in Soho!  I've been waiting for it to open since I spotted that it was coming back in September.

- I'd love to see this exhibition on the history of women's shoe design...too bad it's in the Netherlands!

- Just about died when I saw this trailer.  Two words for you:  Killer. Mermaid.

- I was equally excited when my favorite Kids in the Hall character, Buddy Cole, made an appearance on the Colbert Report!  On a related note, I never really "got" Stefan on Saturday Night Live until I started binge-watching KITH on Netflix and witnessed the genius of Buddy Cole.  Then it all made sense.  Buddy is essentially the original Stefan. 

- One final pop culture note:  if you're not watching Broad City you really should start.

How was your week?
