Fashon's Night Out - What I Did in Dayton

Lisa, knowing what a makeup junkie I am, did not limit me to fragrances that evening, no. She first made a beeline to the Dior counter to show me the new Dior Rock Coat. Now, Dayton Mall isn’t supposed to have this new topcoat. They got it by mistake. Lisa snagged one of the only bottles. As she put it, it doubles her makeup stash because she can change the color of any polish by using it.

Here’s an example of Dior Rock Coat in action:

Personally, I like the way it looks over the naked nail better than over color:

Next we hopped over to Lancome and looked at what was on display. I walked away with their Nail Lacquer in 23 Noir. You know me – I can’t pass up what looks like a good black polish! I will review it in a later post. :)

At this point I went off to grab a couple of Back-to-Mac lipsticks. I elected to get Pink Plaid (a long time lemming) and Runway Red. Fortunately for me, they also had Stunner blush available. As you may know, that was sold out online. Incidentally, they also had all the fluidlines.

My evening ended at the Chanel counter. The very lovely Chanel representative swatched some of the fall colors for me. She also showed me the new cream shadows. Illusoire walked home with me – to me it looked like what I wanted of MAC Mauvement pigment . I also got to see something that was a bit of a drool worth moment: The unpacking of boxes of Chanel stock!
Unpacking Chanel!!!
All in all it was a very lovely evening. I made some wonderful contacts. Don’t be surprised if you see me reporting more interesting things from the Dayton Mall Macy’s in the future.
