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 line....gasp.....it 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.
