Friday Favorite 1-13-12: Brazilian ain't just about the Wax no more!

This new Brazilian Glycolic at-home peel is all the rage.  This medical grade at- home peel is a 3 step, 30 day antidote for aging skin.  At $118 your started kit includes a Cleanser, micropeel booster pads and 4 - 30% glycolic peels.  Refills are only $78.00

The Brazilian Peel has clinical results of 100% improvement in brightness and clarity to the skin with no irritation and over peeling.

The glycolic is from sugar fields of Brazil that will help exfoliate the dead skin off of the face in tandem with natural acai berry harvested from the rain forests of the Amazon for healing and soothing properties.  The super star ingredient is the q-mag neutralizer that holistically soothes the skin with magnesium salts

While in Menlo Park today clients were raving over this product.  A skincare rep said, "the results are incredible in just one use".  A client said, "I have the most sensitive skin and I didn't even get a little bit of a reaction, but did get amazing looking skin".

Available at Nordstrom and Sephora

Friday Favorite 1-6-12

So what better way to find the Friday Favorite but to walk through the cosmetic department and see where the biggest buzz is.  With cold weather finally knocking at the door everyone seems to have sunshine fever, the need for a glow and a little bit of bronze put back into their lives. Let's marry all those things and add amazing ingenuity and what do we get...Estee Lauder Limited Edition Illuminating Powder Gelee in Topaz Chameleon. 

This fantastical golden nugget is a blend of Gel, Powder and Liquid (amazing, I know) that leaves the skin with a long wearing luminosity, that can go from sheer to layered highlights, that will cure your winter woes.  Can it get any better, ummm yes - you can use it on face and eyes and is only $40. 

Heather P (a Lauder Makeup Artist at Nordstrom Garden State Plaza) says, "It's Sexy, so sexy.  You just need to have it". I second that and add that the entire collection is worth taking a look at as well.

If in the area go visit Heather or Jennifer at the Estee Lauder Counter for your Friday Favorite Pick and amazing other products.

Smashingly Trendy

Twice a Year Nordstrom in Garden State Plaza celebrates the newest season with its Runway Glitz and Glam Extravaganza. Clients race through the doors when the clocks strike 7:30am for a runway show of the seasons hottest trends in skincare, hair and makeup.  Following the 45 minute-ish show clients bum rush the escalators to get themselves to the cosmetics floor so they can be the first ones to get their makeup done and reap the rewards of the limited stock on Holiday items available for purchase, as well as a touch up or a full blown makeup transformation.

This year I was lucky enough to be there with my favorite cosmetic Brand,Smashbox, sharing my ah-ha moment when I tried their new foundation - Studio Skin Foundation.  Not to change subject from Trend Show to my own personal product excitement, but WOW!  I put this foundation on at 8:30am and set it with their new Studio Finish Pressed Powder. Well I just washed it off and it looked amazeballz right up until the cleanser hit my skin.  This foundation has the perfect medium coverage with a flawless silky finish.  Clearly it lasts all day, and lets minimal shine through as the day goes on.  When I tell you it was warm in there, believe me - 300+ people in a cosmetic department, newly renovated with additional counters that are packed with counter staff and a pose of artists and their estimated 50+ appointments per was HOT!

If you haven't had the pleasure of attending one of these Shows/Events you are truly missing out.  Samples, exclusives, makeup and hair - ps, Sultra did hair...oh it was wonderful!!!

Among some of the superstars: Smashbox (of course), Laura Mercier, Sultra, and Clarisonic. .

Sad you didn't make it, well don't be.  Just when you thought enough was enough...there's one more thing the piece de resistance, Smashbox just announced they were inviting back celebrity photographer Steven Khan on December 1st for another incredible Photo Event.  With any $75.00 purchase from Smashbox you can sit with Steven for a photo shoot and go home with a DVD of 15+ head shots that would normally cost you upwards of $500. 

How amazing do these clients look - Steven photographed them in past Photo Events.

Appointments will fill quickly so call now for a spot.  I know I will see you all there - what better gift can you give yourself and someone else (makeup for you - photo for someone else) It a gift that keeps on giving.

Call1-201-843-1122 and ask for Smashbox to make an appointment!!!!
