A personal shopping experience...

Yesterday afternoon I met my girlfriend, Sarah True of TRUE EVENTS in West Farms for a "beauty" personal shopping experience. Oh, what fun we had! Our little adventure started in the Nordstrom cosmetics department where we searched and played with products that would work best for Sarah. Our mission was to find products with great staying power. After a quick stop for lunch we carried on at Sephora where we behaved like two kids in a candy store! Here, I showed Sarah one of my most favorite makeup lines- BENEFIT.

Benefit products have a wacky and whimsical packaging style. The quality is great too! I introduced her to Posie Tint, a poppy hued stain that works on both the lips and the cheeks. It was love at first sight for Miss Sarah. { history note-- the legendary Benetint, a rose colored tint was originally concocted in 1977 for an exotic dancer who requested something to make her nipples look pretty and pink}

After a few hours of good, girly fun, Sarah headed off with all of her new products (and all the right tips for applying them) in tow! Mission accomplished. As for me, there is nothing more rewarding than helping a friend look good and feel empowered by her makeup products. What a GREAT day!
