October may be known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but in New York City, September is known as Fashion Month. While press (myself included), editors, stylists, photographers, designers and others linked to the Fashion Industry spent Fashion Week at the Lincoln Center tents, the rest of fashionable New York also had a very special evening: Fashions Night Out, on September 8th. It’s a citywide celebration of fashion that anyone can attend, no VIP invitation, required. If you haven’t purchased your Fall beauty products yet, there were tons of opportunities to get bargains, meet celebrities, eat and drink, and have a lot of fun, on September 8th.
Those who love designer Michlle Smith of Milly, known for her bright prints and youthful designs, got a chance to meet Michelle in person at the Bloomingdale’s 59th Street flagship store. They also got a chance to get something else: a special gift exclusive to Clinique and Bloomingdale’s. In a large zippered makeup bag with a Milly design of fuschia and white, you will get travel sizes of Clinique’s exceptional products: Dramatically Different Moisture Lotion, Makeup Remover, an instant lift for brow crayon,a sheer, glossy, strawberry-tinted lip gloss in a click-it pen called Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie, A Clinique High Lengths black mascara, and a silvery, mirrored compact with an eye shadow duo of taupe and cream, plus a non-shimmery deep rose blush. The slim, square compact will fit easily into your makeup bag. If that’s not enough of freebies, you also get a Milly-designed brush case with snap closure holding three clear-handled brushes: shadow, blush/powder and eyebrow/lash brush.
It is not too late to get the whole shebang for free with a $25.00 purchase at Blomingdales (if you miss FNO you can get it as supplies last–this may be the last day there are any left)!
