It really was a dark and stormy night. I was craving a new lipstick to lift my sagging spirits, but I did not want to fight for elbowroom with the throngs of shoppers at the department store. So I indulged in what's emerging as a hot trend in beauty today: I went online and ordered a lipstick with my exact color and texture specifications; six days later it was delivered to my door. Going the customized route is the ultimate way to express your individuality. Lipsticks, fragrances, eye shadows, even shampoos can now be tailor-made and are available online or at a beauty counter near you.
You dreamed it...
Now these new beauty websites can whip it up and deliver it to your door.
