Do you dream of hitting up those preternaturally perky, pretty pros at the department store makeup counters for their insider tips and how-to hints but dread the hard sell and squirm-inducing embarrassment of it all? Neiman Marcus feels your pain.

Leap-frogging into the 21st century, the 107-year-old luxury retailer has instituted an ultra modern service -- The Neiman Marcus Online Product Specialist.

What exactly does it mean? Neiman's Direct Vice President and divisional merchandise manager of beauty, Kelly St. John, clues us in. This program "is here to take the mystery and question out of the equation for the customer when it comes to her cosmetic and fragrance needs." To whit, "Customers can expect to receive guidance on skincare regimens, makeup application, and choosing a personal scent." All without ever having to leave the comfort of your couch, or heck, even your bed.
