Sephora's Weekly Wow Sale Includes This 1 Soon-to-Be-Discontinued Product

Inside Sephora Headquarters for Holiday

I just returned from what would definitely be heaven for all of the beauty product junkies out there. Sephora was hosting a merchandise fair for its employees, so everybody could learn about all of the different brands. And if that's not enough, the employees were able to try out all kinds of products and treatments to get dolled up for their holiday party.

Oh, dang! You know I had to sneak in. So I did!

Inside, it was crazy—in a good way. Bliss was offering facials, ghd was styling hair, Urban Decay was applying glitter, and everybody was in a great mood. Lots of people were re-creating the holiday looks from the Sephora catalog, and it was really cool to see them come to life.

Vanessa Dunn from the Sephora Pro Team was applying false eyelashes, so when she asked if I'd like to try out a pair, I didn't think twice. I went for the black feather lashes because they're so over-the-top. Vanessa first measured the lashes, then ran some glue along the edge, and used tweezers to apply them right above my lashline. Voila! What do you think? (Katie was mesmerized.)

I also got to preview a forthcoming product from Cargo. For the details,

April, a makeup artist with Cargo, gave me the scoop on some Spring 2008 product launches. Cargo is coming out with HD Foundation, which is meant to erase tiny imperfections and make you ready for high-definition closeups. The company is also coming out with Texas Lash, a mascara that gives bigger, longer lashes. (You can see it on my lower lashes.) Both of these products will be out in February, so I'll try to get my paws on them to tell you more about them.
