Paris throws a party with Rives de la Beauté

Paris is the city of love... and home to my favourite Sephora. Beauty is a daily part of life for the French, to which the multitude of tiny corner salons and preponderance of French cosmetic surgeons (Dr. Simon being the most recent to make a splash in London) are testament. We're all, it seems, somewhat (even if deep down inside) petrified of French women and they're assumed perfect-ness. Why not visit a few of their beauty havens (if in Paris) to help breakdown that glossy veneer? Rives de la Beauté is a 4-day event (from the 16th to the 20th of September) happening at the coolest beauty counters in town to showcase the best in French beauté... soak it up and enjoy living la vie belle for a few days.
