Why you might want to smell like pie…

DSCN3660

Fall is officially here so its time to check out all the seasonal bath and body products. These “pie” scented perfume oils from Demeter are the perfect way to enjoy fall treats without wasting calories. New to the collection this year is Lemon Meringue, which is not traditionally a fall scent, but it is regularly devoured on holidays.

Lemon Meringue is my favorite of the three, it smells exactly like the sweet treat and suspiciously like one of the Strawberry Shortcake dolls (children of the 80’s take note). Apple Pie is sweet and comforting with a refreshing crisp apple top note. Pumpkin Pie is spicy and sweet and according to studies by  the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago increases the arousal level in men by 40 percent.

I like to buy fragrances but if I bought full size bottles of everything I own, I would have bursting cabinets full of expired perfume.  So, when I discover a new fragrance, I buy the rollerball. Demeter has a rollerball in almost every one of their 300 scents.

Fall Beauty Preview Party at Neiman Marcus

Two great local bloggers, Christie and Laura hosted a Fall Beauty Preview at Neiman Marcus last week. The event was complete with pomegranate martinis, mini-cupcakes and a photo booth. While the ladies waited for a mini makeovers, they enjoyed passed appetizers and music from the in-house DJ. 
Christie and Laura’s picks were displayed throughout the beauty department, along with new picks for Fall. 
I took this opportunity to try the much loved DiorSkin Air Flash Foundation. This spray on foundation contains mother of pearl pigments to diffuse light and even out skin. You can spray it straight on your face or spray it on a brush or sponge first (good idea if your don’t want to get it on your clothes). The coverage is great. I didn’t need concealer, and I always need it. Dior makeup artist Desiree completed my look with the rest of the Dior line. 

My notables: 5 Couleurs Lift Eye Shadow, this shadow compact contains an eye primer with anti-aging properties for a smoother look and Dior Addict Ultra Gloss, maximum shine and not sticky.
Guest who RSVP’d with Christie and Laura got a little gift bag containing a red velvet Neiman Marcus makeup bag filled with deluxe samples, including the new exclusive fragrance by Prada, Candy.
