It’s been literally months since Cafe Makeup has brought you “Here’s what three things I’m Obsessed With Today…” In one bit of news, we’re finally moving to a smaller, more personalized host provider. We’re hoping that this means that our site will be more dependable, stable and (dare to hope) load a bit faster. We’re terrified, but wishing that it all goes smoothly. Please pardon our dust during the move. We have a very patient professional assisting us (thank you, J!)

On with our list…

First, goodbye Peter, we hardly knew ye…. In the past, readers Cafe Makeup have know of our undying love for Chanel’s Creative Director of Beauty Peter Philips. We’ve been traumatized to learn that Peter is moving on from Chanel, hopefully to continue to do all of the creative wonderful things that we know that he’s capable of doing. That offer of lunch still stands, Peter, by the way. 

Peter Philips resigns

We’ve heard that Peter will still be heading the Chanel Fall 2013 show in Paris in a few weeks, so I know we’ll see him again. And now the speculation begins? Who will be next? Dick Page? Pat McGrath? Who is your guess?

Second, our Man Repeller Glossyboxes arrived. Cafe Makeup has never tried a subscription service before, but when we saw that Glossybox was offering one hosted by Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller blog, we had to jump on board. We like her style, we like her sense of humor, so we were hopeful that her beauty selections would be a “best in class” experience.


This is Glossybox’s January selection (we received ours last week). Inside where some fun things, including an awesome sample of Le Metier Replenishing Daily Solution (take that on your next flight and arrive with baby soft skin). I’m wearing the Narciso Rodriguez For Her now, it’s subtle, sophisticated and a little spicy.

It was sort of fun to play with someone else’s makeup selections, sort of like playing “what’s in your purse?” with a friend’s makeup bag. Overall, although I’m glad to have tried Glossbox, I ultimately cancelled the subscription. I don’t think the sample box service is something that I’d like to repeat monthly. 

Third, Omovoricza is having a gift with purchaseIf you’d like to try a variety of things, this is a good time to try out the line. This bag of sample size products, including the Queen of Hungary Mist, Copper Peel 2-part system, the Instant Plumping Cream and the Deep Cleansing mask are free with a $175 purchase online. It pops into your cart automatically (no code needed). I suspect that Omovoricza will run out of these soon.
