If you haven't heard about Space NK yet, you probably soon will. The British retailer of all things beauty launched its first US store in New York City last year, and most recently they've added stores within stores at various Bloomingdale's. Look for Space NK to launch in all Bloomie's locations by 2010.
Last week at the San Francisco store, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the company's founder, Nicky Kinnaird (hence the "NK"), and I asked her what kinds of beauty products she could recommend for the holiday season. Her suggestions? Party glam all the way:
- Sexy eye duo — Go for a smoky eye with the multitasking Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Creme Duo in Black Diamond ($36). One side is a pot of eyeliner and the other allows you to intensify your look with glitter and sparkle. "You can make it classic and simple as you want or you can really build it with glamour," Kinnaird said. Note: Space NK currently doesn't ship Jemma Kidd products to the US, but you can find them at Bloomingdale's or other stores. Prices may vary.
Too see the rest,
- Smudge-free liner — For lasting power, try Jemma Kidd Define Stay-Put Eyeliner ($24) in a fun shade like Teal or Peacock. Layer a little glitz on top with Jemma Kidd Crushed Jewel Gel Liner in Azure ($24).
- Rosy glow — "I'm all for multitasking wherever possible," says Kinnaird. Give yourself a playful flush with Rosy Glow Lip & Cheek Tint ($37.50). Plus, it's "very buildable and easy to control," she said.
- Sleeping beauty — Slept in your makeup? No prob. Try Jemma Kidd Lasting Lash Tint ($28.50), a semipermanent tint you can snooze in.
