So I have a newborn baby.
What could possibly tear me away from said (really cute) newborn babe? The siren song of beauty products might have done it, at beauty and fashion mecca Saks. And when Saks Fifth Avenue called, I decided it was time to leave the house.
I was lucky to be invited to preview Beauty Week, going live today, coincidentally the same day as the unveiling of thier newly renovated space on the second floor. Double your pleasure with tons of fall fashion and beauty deals.
Beauty Week runs through Saturday October 5th. In between today and Saturday, expect a bonanza of beauty events (think Dior nail bar and Kilian cocktail bar, with fragrance inspired beverages to sample). The obligatory gift with purchase is included- a fun tote filled with goods from your fave brands, available with a purchase of $100 or more. If you are anything like me, you rarely stop there though. When you shop at select counters, Georgio Armani, NARS, and Chantecaille among them, you get an additional gift with purchase.....in many cases full size goodness, and be honest, with beauty products (full) size DOES matter.
Inside tips and products you need to be in the know about:
Scent-astic fave Jo Malone is stocked with delicious room and linen sprays, which I could easily OD on. Be on the look out for the seasonal pine and eucalyptus, landing in November.
Have you heard of Kilian yet? I had not. But then again, I have been sequestered home with child. The scents are outrageously unique and keep your nose wanting more. Seriously, it was hard to limit my purchase to one, though I did, with a bottle of In the Garden of Good and Evil. My purchase was rendered resplendent with the inclusion of a mini-audiere case, topped with golden slithering snake, that cushioned the precious perfume. A perfume box that pulls double duty as clutch? Genius.
Chantecaille unveils its Wild Horses palette for fall, almost too pretty to use, but definitely a must purchase. Five percent of proceeds are donated to the Humane Society, to fund their efforts to save native wild horses.
But wait there is way more. I have barely scratched the surface of all the beauty goodness.
Be sure to stop by and check it all out for yourself.
