Molton Brown SoHo, 128 Spring Street – One of my favorite all-time apothecaries will be hosting a great event complete with champagne and the launch of their AMAZING Fine Fragrance, influences by some of the finest fragrances from around the world: Egypt, China, Indonesia, England and Canada. Even better? Get your photo taken against a virtual vacation backdrop of your dream destination from these amazing fragrances and enter ti win two round-trip airline tickets courtesy of Molton Brown and Qatar Airways.
Sephora 5th Avenue,597 Fifth Ave b/w 48 and 49- is having an amazing night of events. You can watch Josie Maran shoot her new ad campaign, get expert beauty advice from a panel that includes Kate Somerville and Oscar Blandi, meet True Blood’s Kristen Bauer and the GENIUS Kate Walsh, actress and creator of my favorite fragrance, Boyfriend. Get your makeup done by Smashbox and have your own photo shoot, jam out to some tunes by Carol’s Daughter’s “Spokesbeauty” Solange Knowles. Yep, sounds like a good time to me.
Kiehl’s Since 1851 Karaoke Karnival, 109 Third Avenue, at 13th Street – Backstreet’s back alright, or at least at the Kiehl’s Since 1851 flagship. Stop by anytime from 6:30 – 11 pm for amazing beauty products and a performance by Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean. Feel like you want to strut your stuff on the karaoke stage? Well, if you’re suddenly fueled with bravado (and cocktails) you’ll score yourself a free lip balm. There will also be copious amounts of giveaways that night, so show up and stay long. I’ll see you there!

Get your shop on while resident DJ Harley Viera-Newton will also curate an exclusive music set that will play throughout the evening and will be feting the evening while wearing limited-edition Dior Velvet Eyes.

VotreVu Vu-in Rouge, The VuBAR, parked on 9th Ave between 13th and 14th Sts – This amazing French skincare company will be recreating the legendary Moulin Rouge with performances by French Can-Can girls and a contortionist throughout the night. A photographer will be on hand to capture the magic as you play with amazing products (you HAVE to try the dry body oil and the lip balm – to DIE for) and you can enjoy their signature SnapDragon Beauty Beverage chilled in an ice luge and distributed by the SnapDragon Sprite.
Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, 825 Washington at Little West 12th, – There will be discounted blowouts from 2-5, complimentary cut and color consultations (invaluable as those of us who have ever had the wrong hairstyle know), and makeup touch-ups by celebrity makeup artist and brow expert Piret Aava. Oh, and cocktails by Xanté Spirit (a French liqueur blend of sweet Belgium pears and cognac) and sushi from Tanuki Tavern. There will also evidently be a healthy goodie bag.
Butterfly Studio Salon, 144 Fifth Avenue – The site of my new fab haircut (and genius Kerastase treatments) is having a great night of hair care for their guests. You can receive an expert hair care analysis and a personalized hair treatment (they’re celebrating the launch of Kerastase’s Fusio-Dose, a customizable and instantly-transforming conditioning treatment). Get your hair done, rock out to some amazing DJ tunes and enjoy cocktails and snacks. The package is $195 and available via appointment only, so I’d call 212-253-2100 now and book your appointment.
Enjoy the night, ladies and gents!
