With the news of Prescriptives closing down many a fan were worried about about where there beloved Prescriptives Calyx would end up. This happens to be a fragrance the Muse recently discovered and loved.

She was ever so delighted to hear that Calyx is alive and well even if Prescriptives won’t be around much longer the much beloved fragrance is here to stay.

“The Prescriptives fragrance Calyx, which is a favorite among consumers, will continue to be distributed through Aramis and Designer Fragrances and sold at the fragrance bar in select fine department stores and online beginning February 1st….”

Estee Lauder Closes Prescriptives

“In a long-anticipated move, the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. said Thursday it will shut down wholesale distribution of its 30-year-old Prescriptives brand by Jan. 31. Products will continue to be available through the brand’s Web site for consumers needing replenishment, until supplies run out.

“A core component of the Estée Lauder Companies’ corporate strategy is to evaluate, and where possible, turn around underperforming brands with the goal of improving return on investment. After a thorough analysis of the Prescriptives brand, management concluded that the brand’s long-term business model is no longer viable given the current market environment. We believe that the difficult decision relating to Prescriptives will allow us to redirect our resources to key strategic imperatives where we see the highest growth potential,” said Freda.

Whoa….just whoa….

This is unbelievable news.   I realize Prescriptives doesn’t have as big a cult following as many other brands but it’s surreal that they are going to close it down completely.

I guess we could have seen this coming since Prescriptives pulled out of Asia not too long ago when it was doing fairly well abroad.   Quite an interesting development and honestly even after shutting down Asian counters I really couldn’t foresee this.

I’m quite upset as I really do love the brand as they have some fun LE released.

R.I.P Prescriptives.

We all love you.

Backstage with Sally Hansen at Tracy Reese and All Lacquered Up

As you know the Muse doesn’t cover much in the way of  nails over here but she was quite excited to see her good mate Michelle from All Lacquered Up featured in the Backstage with Sally Hansen video.  The video features nail trends during Fashion Week 2009 and has a great recap of the show with interviews from Tracy Reese, Gabrielle Union, Michelle from All Lacquered Up.  Michelle is looking lovely and all in the know with the trends she spotted this season, you’d think by now the Muse would have picked up a thing or two about good nails from her….oye, I need to work on these poor nails.

You can read more about the backstage show and the trendy nails at the show by visiting www.alllacqueredup.com

Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist 11

Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist is hydrating miss that replenishes skin’s natural moisture level with a fresh, invigorating scent. This is formulated with 250 minerals that topically feed skin nutrients for a healthy glow.

The Muse wants to feel the glow. It’s $20 for a 5oz size which is cheaper than Shu’s Facial Mist so I’m on it plus I like the promise of an invigorating scent…wonder what that’s all about?

Yes, you shall be mine Philosophy Hope Springs Eternal Facial Mist!
