Fashion Week NY begins, news from MAC backstage

Fashion Week Spring 08 has begun in NY. On Saturday I will actually be there ( yes , I will be at the tents, excited is the word).

Even though I will only be there for the one day, I will still have access to tons of info thoroughout the week and will pass it along as I go. I don't know what shows I will be at, but I will see as much as I can.

There's a lot going on all week, and I'll sift thru it.

MAC is providing the cosmetics for 70 shows this season, and before the shows even began, had offered some idea of what is coming both soon and later. Plus several shows today had artsits using MAC, and there were some interesting thoughts.

Lastly, Marcia Kilgore of Bliss is launching a line at Target. I hadn't heard this before, but it may have been out there in the news. I don't know launch date, but it looks fun.


For Spring/Summer 2008 in New York, M.A.C Artists will be creatinglooks for 70 shows including Carolina Herrera, L.A.M.B, Rodarte,Heatherette, J.Mendel and Baby Phat

This season, product development teams from M.A.C will be swarming fashion week to observe a new foundation for dry/mature skin, which, after two years in development, will undergo intense backstage scrutiny. "It's an exciting time for us because, it's not just about what's new on the runway,it's also about what's new backstage," says Balbier. Which products are poised for a breakout performance during theSpring/Summer '08 shows? The Mineralized loose powder and extensions of theMineralized line already on counters are the most anticipated new arrivals."Our Mineralized Skin Finish baked mineral powders are a perfect texturefor Spring/Summer. You can use it as foundation, powder or blush -- we can't keep it on the shelves," says Balbier.

**At the Boy by Band of Outsiders show, Navy eyeliner was big, and what MAC thinks may be a spring trend-pale conturing of cheeks. That sounds interesting, but not sure how it would look overall. Hopefully some pics will be posted that I can upload here.

Target's Soap & Glory :

"Everyone's (not so) secret addiction, Tar-jeh, or Target for those not in-the-know, just got that much cooler thanks to Bliss founder Marcia Kilgore and her new line, Soap & Glory. Boasting six new products including Calm One, Calm All bubble bath, Sexy Mother Pucker lip plumping gloss, and The Righteous Butter body lotion. The pink, black, and white color scheme with bright, bold lettering takes a cue from tabloid journalism, making the packaging just as fabulous as the product inside. "
