Doesn't seem to be much that the Sephora beauty-product distribution center in Belcamp could do to become more efficient. Everything gets barcoded and scanned with hardware from Baltimore's Barcoding Inc. Store computers tell the warehouse when they're running low on goods. When "pickers" scan an order for a particular store, the Belcamp computer tells what to pack and where to find it, and confirms that they're selecting the right things. Computers and conveyors weigh each box, calculate postage, print a shipping label and move it to the right truck.

David Roberts was finishing up a customer's haircut Saturday at the Cavallaro & Co. salon on the second floor of The Mall in Columbia when he heard the first shot. He looked at another employee, wondering whether they should be concerned. "When we heard the second, that's when we were like, 'We need to go,'" said the 46-year-old stylist. Directly across from the salon, three people had been shot at Zumiez, a skate apparel and gear store. Roberts initially led employees and customers out the back of the salon.

The latest in beauty Sephora, France's leading beauty retailer, is more than a cosmetics store; it's an experience. Imagine two entire red-carpeted floors filled with thousands of fragrances, lipsticks, blushes and eye shadow from manufacturers ranging from Christian Dior to Hard Candy to Club Monaco. And here's the best part: not only is the store self-serve, not only can you sample all the products, but Sephora also meets the prices of its competitors. Sephora has about 30 stores in the United States, including their newest edition in Washington.

It used to be that this was a plain old consumer society, in which people defined themselves by the products they bought. You were a BMW kind of guy, say, or a Birkenstock kind of gal.Then movie studios and TV networks began licensing products associated with their shows, so you could be both what you buy and what you watch in one simple purchase -- like a baseball cap with the name of a TV show on it. That worked for a while -- until there got to be...

In the world of beauty, Sephora is nirvana. It's that little slice of supreme happiness that can only come from hundreds of brands of makeup, fragrances, skin and hair care products and beautifying tools, all lined up birthday-present-style in dizzying rows of color and aroma. Christian Dior rouge tubes are growing out of display racks like candy-topped mushrooms. Nail polishes are arranged in countless shades of scarlet and tangerine, shining like jewels. The syrupy sweet smell of cotton candy mixed with caramel wafts through the store.

HAVE YOU EVER walked past someone who had on the wrong perfume for the season? On a hot summer day you said to yourself, "It's too warm out here for her to have on such a strong scent!" Well, if you haven't, maybe that someone is you. The age-old rule, "A stronger fragrance in the winter and a lighter fragrance in the summer," still applies today. Thankfully, fragrance makers have kept the "cool rule" in mind when releasing new summertime scents. Givenchy, a fixture in the fragrance world, has just launched a new summer scent, Very Irresistible, which the company says has an icy and frosty effect, made possible by a clever combination of notes and new technology.

Name: : Living Proof No Frizz styling cream What it is: : A lightweight hair lotion that claims to employ the first new anti-frizz technology in more than 30 years. There are two formulations: Straight Making or Wave Shaping/Curl Defining. As a bonus, No Frizz purports to repel dirt and oil, lending itself to "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here" travel destinations. Or just a trip to the beach. How it works: : Created by a team led by Robert Langer, an engineering professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, No Frizz skips the usual fuzz-fighter, silicone, which, when overdosed, can leave hair looking as if it were bathed in bacon drippings.

It's a series of limited edition watches designed by industrial designer Karim Rashid, contemporary artist Dave Kinsey and fashion designer Matthew Williamson. Each designer created three styles in his line with individual wristwatches numbered and signed.
