Makeup Kiosks

Benefit Is Launching Makeup Kiosks…
In Airports

These days, airport security can get pretty intense, so if you’re smart you probably arrive much, much earlier than your flight, “just in case.” As wise as that is, the extra hour or so you have to spend waiting for your flight can get pretty boring, especially if you’ve already all your September issues. Shopping would be a great way to kill time, but most airport stores consist primarily of touristy knick-knacks and overpriced scarves. Now, though, makeup brand Benefit (who already made headlines this week with their raunchy video ad) is launching a line of airport kiosks, so you can while away the hours buying things you’ll actually use.
The “Glam Up and Away” carts will sell Benefit’s 30 most popular products (like their mascara, pore-minimizing primer, and travel kits) in adorable vintage pink bus shaped stands and will also have touchscreen where users can browse beauty tips and tricks. We think the whole concept is pretty genius, especially given how often we forget to put eyeliner in our carry-on for our always necessary post-flight touch up.
The first kiosk is already set up at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, and by the end of 2013, you’ll also be able to find them in New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport and McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.

Warning, Car Porn

Warning, content below represents a man's libidinous fascination with an automobile. It is not Lolita; after all Bradley Berman, the author, is not Nabokov and the Wraith is not underaged. Nonetheless, I find myself simultaneously repulsed... and seduced. David J. Katz
