Today, OPI announced a collaboration with superstar Mariah Carey. The multi-platinum recording artist will be the inspiration behind a new collection of nail polish set to debut in January 2013.

Says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director:

OPI is thrilled to work with Mariah, an industry icon who loves nails and considers lacquer one of her favorite accessories. With her magnetic personality both on and off the stage, Mariah serves as a great inspiration for beautiful, bold colors.

Little information is known about this new collection, but I’m excited – what kinds of colors do you think we’ll see when this OPI/Mariah Carey launch hits stores?

Exude Lipstick – named as the top lipstick of 2012 by InStyle Magazine – has made its storefront debut at Beauty Bar! Previously, this lipstick was only available at the company’s website.

Says Diane Breidenbach, Founder of Exude Lipstick:

We are excited to bring Exude into a retail store and Beauty Bar is such a great fit for the brand. We look forward to enhancing the customer experience by allowing them to see our technology and amazing color palette first-hand.
Enhanced with a light mint scent and amazing formula, the Exude lip creme is available in 9 colors while the Exude lip gloss is available in 5 colors. Both the lipstick and the gloss retail for $29 each, and can now be found at BeautyBar.com. What makes this lip product so unique is that the applicator dispenses the perfect amount of color with a simple twist, meaning your days of applying too much product are OVER.

Nip+Fab has recently debuted their No Needle Fix, a new facial filler that delivers results comparable to those achieved with Restylane injections – without the needle!

Your skin becomes hydrated and conditioned while a blend of ingredients works to plump fine lines, smooth wrinkles and firm skin without the cost or pain of traditional facial fillers.

According to results gathered during independent trials, volunteers saw an 11.5% reduction in wrinkles after only one application while also noticing increased firmness.

Says a Nip+Fab spokesperson:

With our new No Needle Fix serum, women including our celebrity fans, are able to regain the youthful fullness in their face. Age, environmental damage and demanding lifestyles all take their toll and age us prematurely, with wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes and cheeks being some of the first signs. Before now the only way to counteract these unattractive symptoms, was to inject fillers into the cheek to restore the original plumpness of the face. This extreme procedure leads to the common problem known as ‘pillow face,’ where the cheeks look ‘inflated’ and this can have the adverse effect of closing the eye, making them appear smaller.

No Needle Fix is available at Henri Bendel and at nipandfab.com. The product retails for $19.99.
