Fashion's Night Out!!! News & Sightings…

Hi Ladies!

So last night I went to the M.A.C. Store in SoHo as my first stop for Fashion’s Night Out.  I must say that I think this was a great idea and I would not mind seeing it take place every year.  It was great seeing people shopping, eating and having lots of fun! I’m sure that retailers made some extra money. Next to the M.A.C. store was the Rachel Roy pop-up store and there was a long line, with a velvet rope and everything!

Anyway, back to M.A.C. – The store had a constant flow of people going in and coming out.  There were guys serving bottled Coca-Colas and Perrier, finger foods and homemade oreos!  They also wore tight black M.A.C. t-shirts and smudgy, glossy black smoky eyes.  Fabulous!!!!  Performing Artist Janelle Monae was also there and she is absolutely the cutest!!!! First of all, she has this big personality in videos and magazines, but she’s tiny!  She’s was rocking her signature, afro mohawk, pompadour hairstyle and the makeup?? FLAWLESSSSSSSS!!!  I don’t even think she knows what a skin problem is.  It was very simple – neutral lids, pronounced lashes, pale pink blush and lips, flawless foundation.

I will definitely be going to the M.A.C. store in SoHo and Janelle Monae is expected to perform.  I may also check out Bloomingdales or Banana Republic.

Covergirl's LashBlast Length


Heads up!! A new addition to the Covergirl LashBlast line is coming soon!  Starting August 17, Covergirl has a limited quantity available for purchase of its newest mascara, LashBlast Length.  I am always looking for long, clump-free lashes and it looks like this new mascara will be a fierce competitor to my favourite mascara of the year – Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto!  The brushes appear to be very similar in shape which makes me really want to try it.  This mascara is not due out in stores until September and is supposed to retail for about $7.  Order at Lash Blast Length.
