FNO Goodies

Hello, Fashion Night Out had some great events last night.  I managed to make my rounds after work and take in the local scene.  I stopped at Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Sephora, and a couple of drugstores.  After making my rounds, I wanted to catch the underground train to head home for dinner.  I knew there was a planned protest by the infamous "Anonymous" group at the station where I wanted to catch the train, so I was somewhat prepared.  The station was shut down until 8:30pm, later than I had expected.  I was tired and frustrated!  All the recent protests by this group have been very disruptive to the commuters.  Although the protests have been peaceful, I wish they would stop and let people get on with their normal transportation routines.

Anyway, I got the NM tote and samples galore.  Here are five main items I picked up from the different stores:
  • Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection SPF50 PA +++
  • Chantecaille Just Skin Anti-Smog Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in Glow
  • Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer in Kohl
  • Lancome HYPNÔSE Doll Lashes Mascara in Black
  • Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark-Circle Roller in Sheer Tone

 I can't wait to try everything!  Have a great weekend!  Until next post......

9/13/11 Edit - I was disappointed with the color match of Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer after trying both Glow and Bliss, neither worked as I was in between the two colors.  However, I did like the formula because it gave me a dewy look.  I exchanged it for Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe in Shade 02.  I have tried this product before and I am happy to have re-purchased it. It comes in three shades now instead of two shades in the past.  Shade 02 is a good match for me.
