Molly Sugarman’s facialist and brow technician just started working at Shen Beauty, and recommended that she come explore the niche beauty boutique, so the 35-year-old took time out of her Saturday to check out the hype.
“I go through these phases where I decide I’m going to make my life better,” says Sugarman. “My goal when I came in was to buy a new facial regime.” Sugarman spends $2,000 a year on beauty products and looks to reader reviews for insight on new brands and items. “It’s helpful to get a broad swath of people’s opinions,” she says. “Online, you have so many people that eventually you can find a reviewer who describes an experience that’s close enough to your own.” Working in advertising, Sugarman admits to being drawn in by product marketing. “I definitely buy into whether it’s true or not and if it’s going to make my life better,” she says. “Bravo marketers.”

By Terry Or De Rose Baume Précieux, $59 Sugarman bought the last tube of this now-discontinued shade. Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser, $65 “I’m very picky about my moisturizer,” says Sugarman. “I was told this wouldn’t weigh down my skin.”
On the hunt for a rich moisturizer for her mother, Annette Barone and her sister stopped into Shen Beauty to see what was new. “I’m a big product junkie,” says Barone. “I learned about beauty from my sister.” The trading broker says she spends $5,000 on beauty annually and is always looking for innovation. When considering new products, she looks specifically for two things: “I’m a big fan of rich, creamy products that are fragrance-free,” says Barone. “I also love anything luxe.” When shopping, Barone doesn’t want to feel bombarded and prefers to go online when it comes to department stores. “Shen Beauty is comfortable,” she says. “They’re here to help you. I like to browse and I don’t want to be attacked.” When asked why she likes shopping for beauty Barone replied, “The whole looking pretty aspect. I turned 50 this year, so it was rough for me.”

“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
