Rock Pamper Scissors: 21st Century Beauty at Your Fingertips

It is no secret that the 21st century has ushered in some profound changes in the ways that products and services are presented to the general public. There is perhaps no better example of this paradigm shift than in the beauty industry within the United Kingdom. In fact, makeup sales alone increased a full two percent within this region in 2012(1). Therefore, companies are always seeking new and innovative ways to market their bespoke services to a public that is increasingly reliant upon the Internet to procure the best beauty treatments. A new site called Rock Pamper Scissors is at the forefront of this revolution and it is wise to take a look at their unique approach to such challenges.

Diapers for Beauty and USA Spa Week

Would you want to wash your face with a diaper? A cloth diaper can provide a good alternative to Clarisonic style brushes; which some dermatologists now say can cause breakouts. A diaper is apparently the perfect consistency to promote lymphatic drainage and remove cleansing balms.. but would you want to try it? [Allure]

Forget fashion week, all beauty gals should have Spa Week pencilled firmly in their diary. This year you can choose from multiple luxurious treatments at thousands of places country-wide, with services costing no more than $50, a great excuse to treat yourself! [Spa Week]

What does the Gillette factory look like? A question I’d never asked, but one I’m happy to get the answer too. It’s very cool to see what goes into the production of the Venus blades- it involves robots. ROBOTS!  [Beautiful Makeup Search]

Uncomfortable reading. To sell hair removal products in China, Veet started a campaign to make Chinese women unhappy with their bodyhair. Seems the bottom line was cold hard cash, and if that can be made from insecurity, why not?  For a company which makes so many inroads on good deeds (they are a big Save the Children supporter) it’s a shame this doesn’t come through in their support of women’s mental wellbeing.[BBB]

Crowdfunded fragrance and Estee Lauder Cello Shots

Fancy smelling like Downtown Chicago? Hey, it’s more than sweat and deep fried doughnuts nowadays.  Tru Blooms Chicago wants you to smell like the cities flowers- extracting fragrances from flowers planted in Chicago’s parks. The scent has a short run, as flowers are seasonal there, and  expect it to be a mix of roses, violets and lavender. [AdWeek]

BB Cream? CC Cream? Just when you think you’ve got a handle on what’s going on, then a new acronym comes around. The Beauty Geeks UK deconstruct what these terms mean, and break down brands by coverage, texture and ingredients.  [BeautyByThe Geeks]

Cello shot is the new line from Estee Lauder and my, isn’t it lovely? Four cheek stains, six lippies and six glosses that aim to give you a ‘cellophane gel’ look.  Think smooth, and HDTV ready rather than Walking Dead zombified. These are designed to give your face a wet barely there sheen, perfect for summer. [Refinery 29]

 Crowd-sourcing to create fine fragrance! French perfumer Celine Verlule has created a scent through public funding. Her brand- the Olfactive Studio- used feedback from 5,000 Facebook fans to create a four scent library. Her newest scent, Flashback, makes it to the US this week.  [The Cut]

Make your digits Summer-sational with a six shade selection of  Zoya PixieDust in bright summer colors. PixieDust combines matte, sparkle and longevity with the one stroke Zoya formula- out in April. [Beauty in NYC]

Go Back to School with Chalkboard Nails: Plus more beauty buzz

Adore the ultra retro chalkboard nail kit from Ciate, that we told you about last week? Us too! The chalkboard base coat gives you a blank surface to doodle on, and the four liquid chalk pens let you capture those XO moments. Available April 2013. For those who can’t wait, blogger Phoebe Scott has created a DIY version, using products you own already. Ingenious. [MarketingUndergrad]

Mavala are running a  fun nail campaign where they are crowd-sourcing color shades from things that you like. Tweet or Facebook in images of colored things you like- from that perfect teal dress to your favorite brick wail, and the top three voted shades will be turned into varnishes for their That’s My Color Collection.[BritishBeautyBlogger]

Confused: Obama calls attorney general Kamala Harris the ‘best looking general’. Sure, she’s smoking, but should the leader of  nation really be making statements about people’s appearances? There are enough issues about strong women in business and the continual struggle for equal pay, without the president bringing looks into the mix. Weird taste in mouth about this- thoughts? [HuffPo]

Lip-tastic alert. Artist Agnes Kisonaite built a lipstick sculpture with 5,000 lipstick tubes. The reasoning? That this stunning piece of beauty-art would make people think more about product wastage. The problem? She’s targeting this at consumers, when it is companies that should be offering us way to recycle. [Makeup Museum]

Selfie Style. Want to look super sexy in those selfie Snapchats? Or, at the least, manage to avoid duckface and screen glare? Here’s a lighthearted look at how to take selfies that will get people talking. Better they laugh with you than at you, right?  [The Gloss] 

Has perfume lost its class? A look back at the history of celebrity scent collaborations an how the scent houses have adapted. It gets traced back to Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy in 1957. Pretty intriguing… [Ad Week]
