This past Wednesday I attended the Nanette Lepore for Origins launch of their limited holiday collection at Lepore’s showroom in New York City. This collection was inspired by Lepore’s travels, from Morocco to India to Venezia, and coincides perfectly with Origins’ earth-sourced approach to beauty.
Nanette’s showroom was the perfect place for the event, showcasing her line’s æsthetic alongside cult-classic products from Origins such as the Clear Improvement charcoal mask and the Ginger Soufflé body cream. I was also introduced to products from the hair line, Ojon, such as the Rare Blend Tamer, a flyaway fixing hair mascara perfect to keep in your purse for humid nights. All the products went into the Nanette Lepore-designed make-up bag that is also great for transitioning your look from day to night as a clutch. The print is colourful and clearly travel-inspired and made of 100 per cent recycled cotton.
Along with all the products, there was a photo booth and a product styling photo op where you can style the contents of your bag with your own items and supplied common purse items. I added my NYC Metro card, headphones, compass, and lip balm to the Origins and Ojon items I received and the assortment of items they had to choose from. I’m quite proud of my first product styling experience and would love to see other Lucire readers style a #WhatsInMyBag photo. Let me know if you do and tag @Lucire (on Twitter and Instagram). I can’t wait to see what you create!—Jamie Dorman, New York Beauty Editor
