My friend Karen and I had our monthly Play Date last week. Not the kind we shared 25 years ago when our children were small though. Karen and I love to meet at Nordstrom’s for lunch and then go downstairs to play in the Beauty Spot. We tried lotions, serums, treatments and best of all we got our makeup done together! It was a special friendship day. Beauty advisors are throughout the area showing you the latest products as your roam throughout the Beauty Spot and there’s always something new and different there to catch your eye.
And speaking of eyes… While we were getting our makeup done at Charlotte Tillbury (Karen chose Uptown Girl and I picked Golden Goddess) I was introduced to Chantecaille. This is one of the newest lines in the Nordstrom family which is billed as the “preeminent luxury brand for serious skincare and beautifying cosmetics.” It’s where I was introduced to the “Golden Roller Ball” by Michael otherwise known as Nano Gold Energizing Eye Serum. Referred to as a “97%-botanical cocktail of highly effective collagen builders, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients” it is dispensed in a unique roller ball applicator – in gold, of course. With only one application my eye puffiness and lines were reduced dramatically with an emphasis on dramatically. The lines around my eye were… smoother then, actually gone! This serum is just simply amazing. The only drawback is that it is quite pricey, but for what it does, it’s a miracle. And! When I awoke the next morning the effect was still present from the application the day before. Since this is a treatment serum, I have continued to apply it each day and the skin around my eyes continues to be toned and smooth.
Karen and I agreed that spending time with the Charlotte Tillbury make-up artists was half the fun of a Friendship Day glamour experience. Makeup artists Kate, Michael, and Giselle won’t let your experience be anything but professional, knowledgeable and fun!

Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them but you know that they are always there. – Unknown
