IN THE NEWS Launchtime! Disney's beloved Minnie Mouse character has gone haute couture via OPI's ( new collection, Couture de Minnie. Its four limited-edition lacquers mark the brand's second homage to the historic cartoon. (Last summer, OPI released four "vintage Minnie Mouse" pink polishes.) "The new collection draws inspiration from Minnie's iconic style and incorporates runway trends such as standout shades and fun textural elements," says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI's executive vice president and artistic director. Zoya ( has designed a new neutral polish to be as "work appropriate" as it is fun. Godiva Pixie Dust features a textured, matte nude hue with a touch of sparkle, for a modest-yet-bold manicure."I love that the glitter/matte finish of this polish makes it interesting, while the nude tone makes it incredibly wearable and modern," says Rebecca Isa, developer of polish color for Zoya. We've heard of BB, CC and AA potions, but LL Cream? Lady Burd Cosmetics ( contributes to the alphabet cream trend with this new multi-purpose lip product, designed to provide long-lasting, pigmented color, plus condition and soothe pouts. "This season is all about vivid shades, so we decided to do a multi-purpose lip product that provides intense color while refreshing the lips," says Tina Burd, vice president of Lady Burd. Éminence Organic Skin Care ( has unveiled a whole new product category: Vitaskin Booster Serums. Formulated with potent botanical blends, these four serums—Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster, Calm Skin Arnica Booster, Clear Skin Willow Bark Booster and Firm Skin Açai Booster—are designed to intensify the benefits of clients' current skincare regimens. "Professional boosters are gaining popularity in spa treatments, so consumers are looking for a way to get those enhanced benefits at home, too," says Boldijarre Koronczay, founder and president of Éminence. Dermalogica Buoys Boston Last month, Dermalogica ( showed its support for victims of the Boston Marathon terrorist bombings via donations generated from the brand's professional education and treatment proceeds. The designated funds supported One Fund Boston (, an emergency aid organization supporting victims and families affected by the tragic bombing. From May 13th-24th, the brand donated 100% of all fees collected from the International Dermal Institute. Dermalogica also donated proceeds from all MicroZone treatments performed at all four Dermalogica concept spaces nationwide on May 11th. "We have had strong ties to the Boston community for over 10 years, and many of us have lived, worked and taught there," says Dermalogica's founder Jane Wurwand. "It is an ongoing nightmare that too many victims and families will be living for the rest of their lives as they try to recover and heal. We all make that journey with them as Boston shows once again that they are patriots, survivors and strong." | JUNE 2013 123
