You guys know I have been PREACHING to you about the wonders of the Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender for almost 2 years now. And I’ve convinced several of you (*Retrodiva) to give up the powder and make the switch. But for those of you that are still on the fence about it (*how could you be?!?), I have a couple of opportunities for you to try to check it out.
For those of you lovelies in NYC on Tuesday, May 8th, Mally and her “Fight The Powder” team will be outside Grand Central Station during rush hour (6:30AM – 9:30AM and 4pm – 7pm) to give the first 50 women who take the pledge to give up their powder a Face Defender, with a pink mirror that has a QR code that will link to a video with exclusive tips & discounts from Mally.
And for those of you not in NYC, you can sign the pledge on the Mally Beauty Facebook page for a chance to be one of 10 weekly winners of a Face Defender, and maybe even the Grand Prize winner of a 30min Skype session with Mally & the products she rec’s for the winner in the chat. (*This promotion goes on until June 7th).
So, have I convinced you to make the switch? I would love to know if you have or if you are going to make the pledge.
It’s Sunday – the first day the The Makeup Show – NYC is open to the public and it is bananas. I heard there were 2k people in line when the doors open!
I am not a line stander, but this year Make Up For Ever introduced their colorful Aqua Liners – felt-tip liquid eyeliners – and since we all know how I feel about those, standing in liner for them was a foregone conclusion.
But, before I got in this unwieldy line, I made my way around to look at many of the 150 vendors showing their wares. Of course I had to also stop and say hello to the beauties, Melissa and Wanda, from CoverFX and the lovely Nicole from Mario Badescu. In fact, Nicole took me over to look at the pretty opaque lipglosses from Armour Beauty. I love when beauty folks share their faves!
So, I’m here, in line, and enjoying the people watching until I get my hands on some colorful goodies.
As I write this, I am on a plane headed to New York City. That’s right, it’s that time of year again – The Makeup Show.
TMS is a makeup trade shows that includes some of the biggest names in makeup (*Nars, Smashbox, MUFE, YSL) and gives a chance to smaller brands to break thru (*can’t wait to see who is premiering this year). It’s also an opportunity to hear some of the leading Makeup Artists in the business give tips & tricks and flat out good advice for those in the business.
As usual, you know that my twitter feed will be blowing up with up-to-the-minute of what I’m seeing and doing while I’m in NYC.
I’m excited to go again this year and can’t wait to share it with all of you!
You guys – it’s September *already*. You know what that means? Yes, I know it’s almost Fall, but that’s not what I’m talking about. It’s time for “Mercedes Benz Fashion Week” in New York City! And in September, they show the collections for Spring/Summer wear for next year.
Well, I’m excited to tell you guys that I will be getting to go to NYC this season and bring you all kinds of coverage – everything from backstage, talking to makeup artists and hairstylists; front of house, watching the actual clothing presentations; checking out hair and beauty salons; and even reporting from some of the best parties during the week. Now, not only will I be attending MBFW, I will also be in NYC for “Fashion’s Night Out”, which is a night to celebrate shopping and fashion. As of right now I think there is something like 950 events lined up in NYC alone! But, it’s not just a NYC event – it’s global – make sure and look to see if there are any events in your town so you can participate, too. (*You may want to google if your town isn’t listed. I know for a fact several Oklahoma City places are doing something, but it’s Oklahoma isn’t listed on the page. Boo!)
I will be nice and give you guys fair warning – if you are following me on twitter you know that when I travel I tweet *a lot*. Well, considering everything going on this trip, expect my tweeting to be in overdrive. I can’t help it – I wanna share what I am doing THAT MINUTE with you guys & that’s the best way to do it. So, if you wanna take a break from me for a week, I totally understand. (*Just come back on the 15th). But, if you want to feel like you are there with me, then make sure to follow me and you’ll get all the up to the minute stuff that I have going on.
I’m excited to head out there on Thursday & hope you are excited to go with me, too!
*UPDATE* I just wanted to include some links that I found about happenings around Oklahoma City for Fashion’s Night Out OKC: The MOOD blog lists several of the participants, here is the Facebook page for the event and here is Alex, from “The Makeup Bar” (*who is primarily spearheading this event) speaking with the Fox 25 Morning Show about FNO. So, all you local OKC folks have no excuse for not getting out there Friday, because you can’t say you didn’t know what was going on!
I make no secret of my Target love. I think it’s neat that they do collaborations with designers to make special collections just for them. (*A few past designers were Anna Sui, Alexander McQueen and John Paul Gaultier, for example). The thing with these collections is that they fly out the door before some of you have a chance to go check them out.
Well, Target has decided to team up with online invitation-only sale site, Gilt Groupe, to provide an exclusive 36-hour preview-shopping event of select pieces from Target’s newest upcoming designer collaborations with John Derian, Tucker and Mulberry.
Now, I firmly expect this sale to sell out quickly, as there is usually a frenzy for these collections. So, I would def say that if you are interested in being a part of it, then you need to sign up for membership ahead of time. (*Just to let you know, I *do* get a referral bonus if you sign up thru my invite.)
So, tell me – does getting a head start ahead of the masses interest you enough to check out this sale, or are you going to wait until each collection comes out to see it in real life before getting anything?
