Run Don’t Walk to Barney’s Love Yourself Beauty Event – September 19-23, 2012

13 Sep

ALERT!  Barneys Love Yourself Beauty Event is upon us! September 19-23, 2012!

For those who don’t know, twice a year, September and February, Barney has the best beauty gift bag with an $175 purchase (maybe it’s $200 now). But it’s worth it. With tons of  generous makeup and skincare samples, including a bunch of full size products, you just can’t go wrong. It feels like Christmas morning, where I can’t wait to rip the bag open to see what gems await me.

Every 6 months, I literally patiently wait to restock on my faves, so it times out with this event. I’ve even discovered some of my most beloved products through this gift bag, including Sunday Riley’s Juno, the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, and Kevyn Aucoin’s Eyelash Curler. Now, the minimum purchase might seem like a lot, but why not buy your foundation, mascara, eyeliner, hair cream all in one fell swoop and get this bottomless goodie bag as well!

See you there!!

P.S. You can also order online or over the phone with free shipping, if getting to a Barneys proves tricky.

Kevyn Aucoin The Volume Mascara

31 Jul

A newbie to this product, as I’ve been a Lancôme Definicils mascara devotee for years. But, as I was browsing around the “oh SO covetable” beauty counters at Barneys, knowing I needed a new mascara, the Kevyn Aucoin counter is where I landed. I was actually looking for Lancôme but realized they don’t sell it at Barneys. As soon as I said mascara, the rep was all over the benefits of this one. Well what sales rep wouldn’t be about their products, but I bought into it.

The Volume Mascara uses tubed-technology to wrap lashes individually vs. more traditional mascara that paints the lashes. Something totally new to me! This also means the first time you remove it, you might be a little afraid your lashes are coming off. They aren’t, it’s simply the tube wrapping around the lash. I found the best way to remove it is to use an eye make-up remover before washing your face. Although, using warm water will work just fine. So far the biggest benefit I can see is less smudging underneath the bottom lashes and the richness of the black color. It is not a curling mascara but the thin brush really does get each lash. Some users seem to complain of clumping but I didn’t get that at all. I still use an eyelash curler along with the mascara which creates both the definition and length I want, along with the curl to open up my eyes. Mission accomplished!
