I've got another haul today! It's just a baby sized haul from when we were in DC last week. While the Mister was at his conference for work, I took a little walk to Pentagon City in Arlington Virginia. On the way I also stopped in the Pentagon Centre that had a Nordstrom Rack inside - first time I've ever been to a Nordstrom Rack. I was in the mood to be out of the hotel room, but not truly in the mood for shopping...wrong time of the month, and I wasn't about to try any tourist-y places on my own. I do think that if we're able to make it back to that area around the Fall it would be a perfect place for me to look for the next dress I'll be needing in December.
I only found one thing I wanted to get from Nordstrom Rack. It's the Lorac Downtown Drama cool eye shadow palette.
Once I crossed the street to go into Fashion Centre (Pentagon City) I wondered around for a while, popping into Sephora to look for new things from Nars and Kat Von D, neither of which they had yet. Then I went to the MAC store, not impressed with customer service (I was ignored). I basically walked all around all 4 floors of the mall before finally making my way to the beauty section of Nordstrom. I wanted to see if I could get a sample of the Armani foundation I had tried last month and then visit the Kiehl's counter.
The Kiehl's associate decided that I was using all the wrong products from the line (even though they've been working out for me so far) so she sent me home with a bunch of different products to try. The Mister was impressed with how many samples she had fixed me up with.
That's everything that I came home with from DC...other than groceries since we stopped at a few ethnic/Arabic/middle eastern grocery stores. Probably if I'd been feeling better I might have been able to find other things, or if I'd been willing to drive a bit outside of the city. I considered going to a different Sephora that actually had, I believe, the full line of Cover FX products in store. I also considered trying to find a CCO but I think that was an hour or more from where we were staying.
When you travel do you look for makeup/skincare that you don't have easy access to where you live?
