Bergdorfs was a madhouse today! The gift Beauty Event is in full swing, and you'll receive $25 off a $100 purchase on the beauty level, in addition to the gifts with purchase that many brands are offering. I had a difficult time deciding what to buy, and ultimately settled on Le Metier de Beaute Fresh Creme Tint in Tenne, Edward Bess Eye Shadow in Intimate, Edward Bess Lipstick in Pure Impulse and a replacement Clinique Take the Day Off Balm. Unfortunately the Le Metier proved to be out of stock, and I had to make a game time decision about a replacement. I ultimately ended up with Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Zero Humidity Frizz Control which I'll post about separately.
Pure Impulse: a warm nude. This looks a bit gray for a minute or so after application, but then melds with my lips to create a stunning natural shade. This lipstick is full coverage with no shimmer.
Intimate: a golden brown with strong khaki tones. Or a khaki with golden brown tones. It's a fabulous shade on my murky green eyes. It's very blendable and the shimmer is subtle.
Intimate and Pure Impulse:
The new Edward Bess Compact Rouge is gorgeous as well. It's a deep burnt rose with a stain-like texture. It looks dark in the pot but blends out well with a dewy quality.
I was helped but the most fabulous sales associate, Eileen, at the Kiehls counter. She could not have been nicer or more patient and she included a veritable slew of Kiehls samples for me to try. Please let me know if you'd like her contact information.
I ordered the Le Metier from Neiman Marcus with their free ship code, NMSHOP and it's due to ship next week.
