So, I am on my way to the parking garage last week and I cut through Nordstrom’s. There is a lady standing next to a stool in Ladies Dresses with a big smile on her face… and I’m thinking… little does she know she bait for a product junkie. As I get closer she quips ‘I’m going to introduce you to a product that will change your life and your looks. One is sold every 6 seconds!” It took less than that for me to hop onto her stool! Tell me more… She started dabbing this gold pen around my eye. I’m thinking… is this a concealer or highlighter or…a miracle?? She is talking quickly and she tells me she is lifting my eyes, reducing signs of fatigue and on and on. She whips a mirror out… where did that come from??? I look in the mirror and I think… hmmm.. maybe?? I tell her that I want to see how it does the rest of the day and her face drops till I ask her to write the name of the product on a piece of paper and I will think it over.
It’s one of those days we all have… nonstop – but I finally make it home. I pass by a mirror and I glace to see how much lipstick I still have on my lips and I stop. Refocus. “Pen that is sold every 6 seconds in America does look good!” Note to self… get one of these.
Three days later, I am parking in the same parking garage to return hairspray to Sephora that was just not holding my style. (Note: Don’t stay with products you don’t like. Return them and get what you need or you will never be happy with the product) On my return to the car, I make a detour to the makeup counter at Nordstrom –YSL. I meet Angelina Sanchez, product rep for YSL and ask for the “pen that is sold every 6 seconds” to which she replies “every 4 seconds, actually.” Even better. Touché Eclat. It’s a light concealer pen that you apply under your eye, over your eye (as a base) and underneath the eyebrow and in various spots on your face that need to be concealed or lightened..
I am still using my Clientele Treatment Concealer under my eyes. Again, it was a product rep in the store that wanted to show me how it worked. It’s the best I have ever used under my eye. Peptide Wrinkle Concealer actually lubricates the skin while it protects the delicate tissue around your eyes and smoothes wrinkles with Antioxidants and Peptide. Like a true product junkie… I use two things to get the effect I need.
By the way, did you know that Nordstrom has free shipping on all products? You do not have to have a minimum purchase and they do include samples like Sephora and Ulta. (Love samples!!) Just a reminder of that little perk in case you cannot make it to the mall. However, I go as often as a product junkie can… I never know who might be waiting with a stool and a smile to perform a miracle!
