Co-operative Insurance came out with a survey (17 Oct 07) that revealed that the average 30 year-old woman spends £253 every month on beauty products (£180,000 in a lifetime. Damn, ladies), including skincare, cosmetics, fragrance and gym memberships.
Now, we didn't get the chance to try Lisa's skincare yet but the concept seems good enough (if, maybe, a bit wasteful). Mixed reviews have come back after the first handful of months but we're sure she'll keep on just fine. In the meantime her perfume has been rolled out for the holidays. Again, like her skincare, and portable and 'pre-edited' so you don't have to carry around a 12oz. pump bottle or spritzer bottle, so, naturally, her 24-hour skincare seems to be the star of the show. We admit, that we do think it's a leeeetle bit gimmicky but if it works, it works. Gimmicks or not.
It's available at Harvey Nichols this November.
So there are a slew of stores that sell beauty wares in Manhattan. From Ricky's to PIR, Sephora, the old-school chemists (like the one on Lex and 84th or the original C.O. Bigelow's on 7th Avenue) to SpaceNK and all of the stand-alone beauty boutiques. Most of them are amazing if you're a beauty junkie. However, we don't think there are many for the luxury and beauty junkie out there.
