Neiman Marcus Cosmetic Counter Crawl

Last weekend I hosted a super fun blogger event at Neiman Marcus Las Vegas.

Myself and 29 of Las Vegas’ top influencers  were invited to a Fabulous Fall Cosmetics Counter Crawl at Neiman Marcus Las Vegas.

Think Pub Crawl but with beauty products and yes of course there was alcohol.  The Neiman Marcus Cafe created a delish breakfast Moscow Mule and treated us to some tasty artisenal toasts and yummy overnight oats.  The toast below that looks like Nutella was actually avocado with coca powder and it was transcendent!

Ok on to beauty……

We covered alot of ground and tried ALOT of products.  In order to keep this post to a reasonable length I narrowed it down to my favorite TOP FIVE New Beauty Finds for Fall 2018.

#1 Atelier Cologne

If you are a frequent reader you know I am head-over-heels for this brand.  My signature fragrance is Atelier’s Vanille Insensee but for the cooler months I am really digging the scents of the Haute Couture Collection (the ones in the gorgeous metallic bottles).

Rose Anonyme plays with dark and light.  Pairing a spiced rose scent with a wonderfully earthen mild oud.  I am NOT a fan of rose scents but this one has enough other notes to balance the rose so that it isn’t always dominant, so even if you don’t care for rose perfumes, Rose Anonyme is worth a try. It delivers a sensual, intimate aura perfect for cuddling close by the fire.  To me this scent gives off a Film Noir mysterious vibe.

Sandal Carmin is a rich deep scent that opens with the exotic hint of saffron then warms to include Gaiac wood, sandalwood, vanilla and white musk.  This scent could bring warmth to the coolest day or night.

#2. Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder and Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water

Fresh’s new Vitamin Nectar Vitamin C Glow Powder and Glow Water blew my mind.

Formulated with vitamin C (tones, brightens, and protects), vitamin E (softens and soothes), and vitamin B5 (smoothes and hydrates), the Vitamin Nectar Antioxidant Glow Water comes in a non-aerosol metal bottle with a fine-spray nozzle. Infused with extracts of lemon and orange containing naturally-occurring AHAs and a mineral complex consisting of magnesium, copper, and zinc, the alcohol-free Glow Water has a fresh citrus scent. Upon application, the spray feels immediately hydrating and lightly cooling. Use it to refresh throughout the day, as a primer or as a stetting spray.

The Vitamin C Glow Power is a really unique concept.  It’s an easy-to-use foaming facial infused with 20% vitamin C designed to instantly smooth and brighten the skin. Available in packs of 12, each dose of the Glow Powder comes in a small packet separated in two comparts. To use, fold the packet in half, tear, and pour the contents of both into the palm of your hands. Mix in a small amount of water (ONLY USE WATER TO DO THIS) until the powder foams and gently massage onto damp skin. Leave on for 30 seconds- you may feel a slight tingling- then remove with water. After rinsing, your skin feels instantly smoother and it looks noticeably brighter and more radiant so the product definitely lives up to its claim.

#3 CREED Floralie

This is the newest fragrance from the House of Creed.  The scent combines a blend of garden blossoms highlighted by earthy marigold and aquatic nuances set against a gentle amber and cedar base accord. If you like subtle floral scents this one is for you.  Although it was launched as a summer scent I think the marigold and amber give it an earthy vibe that makes it perfect for Fall.

#4 YSL Gold Attraction

Yves Saint Laurent Beauty is known for their Limited Edition packaging and this season they launched the Gold Attraction Collection. The collection includes a multi-use palette for eyes, face and cheeks along with the permanent shades of Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks. This time the seven lipstick shades are packed in a limited edition black case with embossed with the golden YSL logo. They are GORGEOUS and the perfect shades to take you from Fall all the way into the holidays.

#5 Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous Parfum and Matte Velvet Cherry Lip Color

Mic drop.  The coolest combination EVER! With key notes of almond bitter oil, tonka resinoid, orris accord, cashmeran, leather accord and clary sage oil this limited editions fragrance that was  sent from heaven appeals to both men and women. If you’re into a spicy, leathery lavender with hints of vanilla, amber, and bitter almond plus a bottle that is beyond cool then this is for you.

I paired it with Tom Ford Matte Velvet Cherry Lip Color which is a perfect muted, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. Perfect to go with all of your Fall looks.
