A 4 Second Miracle

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!

  1. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I
    was almost moved to start my own blog (well,

  2. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing
    my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Cheers!

    • We all have writer’s block. When you think of something you want to say, write it down on a posty note. Sometimes I have 8-10 before I finally begin to write. Once you sit and read them the words begin to flow. I wish you great success in your writing!
