Neiman Marcus Beauty & The Blogger

Neiman Marcus Beauty

A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of attending the Fall Beauty & The Blogger event at Neiman Marcus here in DC. The evening was spent chatting with beauty & makeup experts from various brands like Kiehl's, Laura Mercier, YSL, Chanel & Bobbi Brown (to name a few!) & of course sipping on champagne. I ended up leaving with a bag full of goodies & of course amazing advice on different makeup & beauty products. Below are some of my favorite products & why I love them:

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser: I have been wanting to try Kiehl's products for awhile now & was so happy when we received this full size facial cleanser. The cleanser is extremely gentle, smells clean & lathers nicely. I also love the fact that it doesn't dry out my skin like most facial cleansers do. 

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve: Dy-ing over this product. I have not taken it out of my purse since we got it & am already going to have to purchase a new one because this one is about to run out. The formula is thick & super rich, but doesn't make your hands feel sticky. 

Aerin Fragrance, Iris Meadow: First off, the bottle is gorgeous. Second, the smell is incredible with  floral fragrance embodies hints of deep, woodsy notes. 

Aerin Rose Hand & Body Cream: I have been wanting to give this Rose Hand & Body cream a try for awhile now & was super excited to get this itty bitty sample. The subtle floral scent is perfect for after you get out of the bath or shower & dries rather quickly. I have been keeping the small one in my purse & I actually bought a large one to keep next to my bed.

Clé de Peau Beauté Perfect Lash Mascara: I am a mascara hoarder. I should probably go to mascara rehab, but we can save that for another day. ha! This mascara is pretty amazing - it is long lasting, doesn't flake & gives you a good amount of fullness. I can't say that I will be purchasing this product anytime soon, because like I said I am a mascara hoarder & I have WAY too many other favorites that I love.

Lancôme Eyelash Curler: I tend to stay away from eyelash curlers since my lashes are already long & full of volume, but when I tried this Lancôme Eyelash Curler my life was turned upside down, or should I say my eyelashes! ha Def. worth the investment.

Sisley-Paris Phyto-Lip Twist: I never knew what it was like to purchase high end lip products until recently & I have Faith to thank for that. This tinted lip balm is a two in one deal - colored like a lipstick & shiny like a gloss. & it even has the longest staying power ... ever! The colors were all amazing, but my favorite had to be #5, a beauty berry plum color. The Sisley counter had to be one of my favorite places of the evening - we got to try their new Phyto-Teint Expert Foundation & let's just say that I was super sad when I had to take my makeup off that night before bad. If the price tag of this foundation wasn't so high I would have purchased it the very next day. Unfortunately, I guess when I grow up I will be able to buy myself some :)

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Under Eye Cream: Eye creams are a pain to remember to apply, but there is something about getting a new product in an itty bitty container that somehow makes me remember to apply it. I have only used this a few times, but so far I am loving the texture & smell.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Fragrance: This fragrance is absolutely glamorous with subtle hints of rose, peach pulp, soft amber & wood. Perfect for Fall & Winter.
