Sephora's new beauty bible

We've caught wind of a new Sephora beauty book, penned by the French mecca's beauty editor, Melissa Schweiger. To hit book shelves 15 April 2008, you can pre-order a copy of it on Amazon now. On Sephora's own site, Schweiger says of the book, 'A true beauty junkie must-have, it's an exciting way to celebrate the Sephora experience. With the help of incredible brand partners and Sephora experts, each chapter is filled with information and imagery that's fun, helpful, and insightful.'

It's bound to become a quintessential beauty read along with other books of note, like Bobbi Brown's Bobbi Brown Beauty and Living Beauty; Trish McEvoy's The Power of Makeup: Looking Your Level Best at Every Age; Kevin Aucoin's Making Faces; Laura Mercier's The New Beauty Secrets: Your Ultimate Guide to a Flawless Face; Allure: Confessions of a Beauty Editor and Makeup Your Mind by Francois Nars. The UK's spawned not just a few lifestyle/fashion/beauty bibles itself recently, one (Hadley Freeman's first) just launched with a gathering at Mulberry peppered with glittery guests like Adele, Mylo, Zadie Smith and not just a few of London's up-and-coming literati. The other is by Vogue blogger-in-residence, Camila Morton (there is a slew of others (by TPT, Rachel Zoe, Lucia VDP, Victoria Becks et al).
