Ok, so those of you who’ve been reading the site for a while will remember the holiday gift idea video I did last year with P&G Beauty, where I showed you some of my favorite things that might make great gifts. Well, the team called again and, well, you just kind of don’t say no, especially when celebrity stylist/designer/interior designer Robert Verdi is involved.
I won’t belabor you with too much fanfare. The video was shot in Robert’s luxury event space, Luxe Lab, in Manhattan’s Chelsea area. Most of us would move into Luxe Lab if Robert would let us. Alas, we just find any excuse to spend time there as often as possible. It’s a jewel box of a place. I’ll take more photos when I go for his holiday picks next week.
But to make a long story short, we had a chance to get our hair, makeup and nails “did” before the shoot, which was kind of awesome. My makeup (Covergirl, of course) and hair (Aussie) were great, but let’s talk about this pretty special little red nail courtesy of CoverGirl’s new nail polish line.
This is CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in Lasting Love #180. The challenge is that it should stay on for seven days without chips. Mine made it 6.75 days, but I was putting furniture together the last evening and, well, you can only ask so much from ANY nail polish. The red lip is one of my favorites, CoverGirl LipPerfection lipstick in Hot #305.
All I can say is that the video was fun to do. Here’s my little moment with Robert before shooting, where I give a tip on how to shop for peeps who would prefer a fist full of cash for Christmas:
…and, without further ado, here’s the video: holiday gift picks for the world traveler. Enjoy (and pardon the fact that I kind of ran out of gas at the end…looooong day.)
