Lancôme signs YouTube Make-Up Artist Michelle Phan

Feb10

Lancôme has signed YouTube makeup-artistry phenom Michelle Phan to be the brand’s official video makeup artist, making it the first luxury brand to have a social media superstar on its roster. Phan, a 22-year-old Tampa, Florida, native, has over 106,407,340 views on her own YouTube channel of makeup tutorials, so it strikes us as a pretty good marketing move to bring her on board. Don’t be shocked if/when other brands follow suit.

Valentine’s Day in Japan – Salon du Chocolat Tokyo

Feb10

Valentine’s Day 2010 is just a few days away. You know what that means – lots of love…and chocolate. In Japan, Valentine’s day is a little different from in the West. Japanese women give gifts to men (boyfriends, friends, co-workers, bosses, etc.), but guys don’t generally give anything to their sweethearts on February 14th. Instead, Japanese men give gifts to their girlfriends on White Day, which is on March 14th – exactly one month after Valentine’s Day.

Like the rest of the world, one of the most common Valentine’s Day gifts in Japan is chocolate. Some of the chocolate flavors may be specific to the Japanese market (azuki chocolate, green tea chocolate, yuzu, etc.), but chocolate itself remains incredibly popular in Japan. It’s so popular, in fact, that the famous Salon du Chocolat event is held in Tokyo every year. Founded in Paris, Salon du Chocolat is now also held annually in New York, Moscow, Beijing, and several other major cities.

Salon du Chocolat Tokyo is an event that brings together fifty of the top chocolate companies from Japan and around the world to show off – and sell – their confections. In additional to offering up a lot of exclusive high-end chocolate, renowned companies like Jean-Paul Hevin, Michel Richart, Pierre Marcolini, Boissier, and Valrhona also fly in their top chocolatiers to give daily talk shows and to meet and greet their Japanese customers.

This year, and for the last eight years, Salon du Chocolat Tokyo was held at the Isetan Department Store in Shinjuku. Isetan is one of the most popular Department Stores in Tokyo, which guaranteed that the event would be packed every day.

Cyndi Lauper & Lady Gaga x MAC Viva Glam

Feb10


Gathering two of music’s most eccentric (and eccentrically dressed) personalities in one room at a restaurant known as a cross-dresser paradise is a recipe for spontaneous personality combustion — especially when the two in question are Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper at Lucky Cheng’s in Manhattan.

What I’m hoping, with this [MAC] campaign, is to create this mother-daughter energy, where mothers feel that they can buy the lipstick for their daughters — ‘Here’s your first lipstick, and let me explain to you what it means.’”

“Easy!” Lauper mock-huffs at the mother reference. Gaga backpedals with a laugh: “Obviously, you couldn’t be my mother, Cyndi!” Lauper swats back, “Of course I could! Ga, you’re 23. You could be my kid, easy.”

Regardless of their age difference, the two pop stars clearly feel committed to their roles as the new spokeswoman for the MAC AIDS Fund.

“I love to use my fame to get other points across,” says Gaga. “That’s part of who I am.”

Each has created a lipstick for the cause. While Gaga and Lauper are both head over heels for Russian Red (the matte tomato red perhaps best known for being Madonna’s favorite shade in the Eighties) — “It’s in my bag right now!” exclaims Gaga — and Lauper is rather fond of the collection MAC did with Dame Edna, they’re equally excited over creating their own lipstick shades. “I do love to mix Russian Red and Lady Danger,” says Lauper. “But what really sells is the softer colors, because they’re easier to wear.”

Gaga concurs: “Every woman can relate.”

They are wearing their creations: Lauper’s is a light coral red, Gaga’s a bubble-gummy pink. Both retail for $14 and will be available in MAC stores in North America beginning today (global markets will get the colors in March). For the first time in Viva Glam history, the lipsticks are named for the women who created them, and their signatures are scrawled on the lipstick tubes.
