What else do you call a day that starts off with coffee, delicate pastries and huge video presentations from Frederick Fakkai, Chanel, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Smashbox, Dr. Perricone and the likes? If VOGUE is fashion MECCA, then the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Event is most certainly Makeup MECCA without a doubt.

This is a day of smelly $240 facial creams that make you look 10 years younger and several hunderds of dollars worth of purchased product. This is a day of neck massages, male makeup artists and beauty creams galore. You get to indulge in anti-aging promises, self-tanning tattoos, shiny glosses and color manipulation to the extreme. This is a day made especially for me. Well, for me and 700 other beauty-obsessed women who prepaid and showed up at Nordstrom's before the crack of dawn.

I was happy to surround myself with good company - Ultra Aries and Denise.(Becky, you were totally missed!) Lucky for me UA and Denise know how to work it. Did I mention all of the free stuff on top of all of the free stuff we helped ourselves to? A little shameless flirting with the boy in charge of the sample table paid off three fold. Thanks to my trusty shoppers in crime, we made off with more stuff than we could carry.

Finished the day off with fan-tab-ulous makeovers from MAC, good technical discussions with talented makeup artists and the day was a perfect success. If we only had 10 more hours to shop!
