Leave it to Christian Louboutin—creator of the iconic red sole—to dream up a new classic. Last year, we went crazy for his innovative nail color and bottle design, and now we’re enamored with his newest innovation: lip color in three textures and lots of shades, all enrobed in an exquisitely designed case. (And we don’t use the word exquisite lightly.) Now that it’s available at Nordstrom, we couldn’t wait to try it out for ourselves, so the Beauty Blog took a few of these unique little lovelies down to a crew at Studio N.
We asked Shannon Rasheed—our makeup artist responsible for this glamorous, gorgeous, gotta-have-it look—for her thoughts on a bold lip and working with the new collection.
Kate Fannin, our beauty trend editor, dishes on her favorite new product from Armani—and its surprising versatility.
When we meet with vendors to see all of the great new products for the upcoming season, I keep a running list of must-get-as-soon-as-they-launch items. The waiting is truly the hardest part, since we often see products many months in advance! One of the products on my cannot-come-too-soon list for fall is Giorgio Armani’s new Eye & Brow Maestro. This one’s a game-changer for sure.
Spring is looking brighter thanks to the arrival of Bobbi Brown Sunglasses. Celebrated for her own signature black frames, the New York-based makeup maven has launched a line of shades that she calls a cross between Céline and Ray-Ban. “Being a beauty expert, I’ve always been aware of how glasses can transform the face and wanted to take the mystery out of how to choose the right glasses,” says Brown on why she chose to bring this particular product to the market.
Watch the video below and find out why Bobbi Brown believes wearing the right makeup and the right glasses can help advance your look and style.
“Irreverent and free-spirited, the Brit Rhythm woman combines a powerful femininity with a rock ‘n roll edge.” —Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
Now available at Nordstrom: Burberry Brit Rhythm for women—an iconic new fragrance from an iconic brand, and inspired by live music, youthful energy, sound and scent. Powdery and floral, it reflects a spontaneous, sensual femininity.
The Look: Embody this fragrance by complementing with Burberry beauty products—think a modern smokey eye, natural lips and fresh skin with a subtle glow, for an effortless look that has just the right amount of attitude.
The Scent: Classic and unexpected notes collide in harmony—first reaching the nose with a rush of British lavender, followed by an intoxicating orange blossom and a deep vetiver baseline.
Iconic designer Tory Burch’s approach to beauty reflects her fashion philosophy of understated chic. Feminine and tomboy. Clean and polished. Glowing skin, a hint of color, a modern yet classic scent. With Tory’s collection of makeup, bath and body products and fragrance now available at Nordstrom, we wanted to connect with the busy entrepreneur and style maven for a few quick questions:
“I wanted really gorgeous, rich, saturated color inspired by a kind of seventies-meets-twenties hedonistic mood, a little blurred, a little sheen.” —Tom Ford
A fashion statement for the face, Tom Ford’s complexion-perfecting makeup and high-performance skincare treatments are powerful tools for transformation.
Tom Ford Beauty is a testament to the visionary designer’s desire for any woman, no matter her age or features, to have the ability to create a complete look in which her uniqueness is amplified and she appears to radiate from within.

Jason Wu and Lancôme join forces to translate the New York-based designer’s fall/winter 2013 runway collection into a limited-edition makeup collaboration. A Nordstrom exclusive, Wu’s collection for Lancôme draws inspiration from his brand’s feminine aesthetic and bold color palette. Each product features his signature grey packaging for a statement-making touch.
“Beauty has always been extremely important to my design process, and I’ve made it an integral part of my fashion shows over the years. I think it was an organic progression that further delves into the Jason Wu lifestyle and that also showcases my love for colors,” says Wu.

“This is an amazing red lipstick. I bought it because Liv Tyler mentioned it in an article, saying it was the perfect red for any skin tone—and she was right! It’s bright but has more of an orange undertone, I absolutely love it.” —MRCW
“Got in Afternoon Tea and it’s such a pretty color. It looks super vibrant and somewhat scary, but once you put it on and blend it in…AMAZING!!! It just looks so beautiful!! The color is perfect, it blends super easily and I find it to be long lasting. I’m seriously in love with it and will definitely be purchasing other shades.” —Mnunez
