HOW TO: Shop the Beauty Event like an #NMinsider
September 9, 2016
The Beauty Event is one of fall’s most anticipated shopping experiences. It marks the beginning of a new season of launches, #onlyatNM exclusives, new brands, and insta-worthy trends. And of course, there’s the part we’re most excited about: the gifts! This season’s exclusive tote includes a smattering of our new favorites. In skincare, it’s Lancôme’s Génifique Concentrate, a super lightweight serum that helps boost radiance and smooth skin’s texture. In fragrance, it’s Peau d’Ailleurs, one of the three freshly launched Starck Paris eau de parfums inspired by the intimacy of skin and scent. And for hair that’s sustained a little damage during the summer: a trio of products from Oribe designed especially for color-treated hair.
Even more exciting: the matching cosmetic bag and deluxe samples you’ll receive when you spend $500 or more. That means a whiter smile thanks to Supersmile Whitening Toothpaste, detoxed skin thanks to RéVive’s Purifying Clay Mask, and brighter, more rested-looking eyes compliments of the Tata Harper Boosted Contouring Eye Mask and Natura Bissé The Cure Sheer Eye. Fans of the Korean skincare routine—with its 10+ steps—will already be familiar with the idea of a post-cleanse lotion. If you haven’t tried this step, the sample of Sisley-Paris Sisleÿa Essential Skincare Lotion is the perfect way to give it a test drive. Use it directly after cleansing before the rest of your serums and moisturizer. You’ll notice the difference.
The best way to get to your gift? Our #NMinsiders share the fall essentials to pick up now.

Among my faves: Tamarak (brown), Chameleon (hazel), and Midnight (navy).” —Jennifer Robinson, Associate Divisional Merchandise Manager
