OK, what could be better than free jeans?! How about free Levi’s Curve ID Jeans, a new product from Levi’s specifically designed to fit more than just one type (er shape) of woman.
I recently attended a Levi’s Curve ID launch event in San Francisco at the Union Square Levi’s shop. I got to meet You Nguyen, SVP of Levi’s Women’s Merchandising and Design, who gave a demo that illustrated precisely why women traditionally have such a hard time finding jeans that fit based on size (but not shape). I even got to to try free Curve ID jeans!
*Friday, Sept. 17, 2010 Get a free pair of Levi’s Curve ID jeans at the San Francisco Levi’s store at 300 Post St. Just bring in an old pair of jeans to get free Curve ID jeans! First come first serve!
Photos and Details: How the New Curve ID Jeans Fit Different Women…
Levi’s developed Curve ID jeans after researching body shape variations in women and surveying real women. The new jeans are sized not just by waist size but by the ratio or difference between a woman’s natural waist, upper hip, and butt measurements- her real shape!
The Three Levi’s Curve ID (Lower) Body Shape Types:
- Slight Curve (straighter from waist to butt)
- Demi Curve (average proportion between waist and butt)
- Bold Curve (more difference or curve between waist and butt)

Can one have a crush on brushes? I don’t normally get excited about makeup brushes, other than synthetic kabuki’s, but Lancome’s new limited edition blue-black makeup brushes are immensely attractive, and this brush set is one of only a few new products that I predict will strike ahhhh in the hearts of consumers everywhere.
The limited edition “Declaring Indigo” set of Lancome’s new blue-black brushes will be available to ship from Nordstrom.com starting July 17, 2009 (pre-order now). This smolderingly beautiful new Lancome brush set is a $124 value, and comes with four blue and black bristle brushes and a pretty blue-black brush clutch for only $52.
The Nordstrom-exclusive Lancome brush set includes the following 4 brushes:
- Mineral Powder Foundation Brush
- Foundation Brush #2 (liquid foundation brush)
- Blender Brush #4 (face and eye blender)
- Dual-Ended Brush #18 (liner and shadow)
*To view a larger-size image of the brush set with bag, click here.
(Note: According to Lucky Magazine, the price of this brush set will go up a lot after August 2!)
[Update: I checked out these brushes in person, and most of them are synthetic, according to the salesperson. I think only the blender is not synthetic. Also, the bag is really cute!]
