Like every other beauty obsessed editor in the city, we hit up the Bendel's Beauty Breakfast this morning, and it was totally worth it. The big news: -Laura Mercier is opening a lash bar (think Shu), only at Bendel's, the second week in February. (Britt, at press time, is applying her new pair in the bathroom.) -Makeup artist extraordinaire Mally Roncal is selling the amazing sheer red lipstick she originally created for Zooey Deschanel. -And Le Métier de Beauté is coming out with a liquid liner pen that works exactly like a fine-point Sharpie. But our favorite part of the morning? When colorist Katrina from Giella overheard our nail polish woes (we've been trying to find the perfect shade of bright orange,) and mixed the exact shade we had in mind right on the spot - much like the Fashionista lip gloss they made for us last year. It might be a little pricey ($25 a bottle!) but we think it's worth it - especially for getting certain wait-list/only-sold-in-Europe shades, or even for tweaking colors you love but clash with your skin tone. It was the most well-rounded breakfast we've had in a while.
Our new orange nail polish!
