Attention, beauty addicts
No longer are sample sales the province of in-the-know New Yorkers willing to brave bad weather and sharp elbows. For fashion and accessories, of course, there’s Gilt Groupe; for home, there’s One King’s Lane. Now, luxury beauty junkies are getting an online mecca of their own. Launching September 1, The Fairest will offer steep markdowns on brands like Stila, Jurlique and Korres. But supposedly it’s going to be more than just discounts — co-founder Charles Perer says he envisions TheFairest as a sort of “beauty club” for makeup and skincare obsessives, offering subscribers product samples, previews of new lines and expert tips.
