I’m super excited that I had the opportunity to attend the Duane Reade Pre-Jingle Ball Event on Friday. I have never been to Jingle Ball despite living in NYC practically all my life.
As I was getting ready to head over, I was thinking, OMG I’m going to be the oldest person there, plus I’m pregnant…I’m gunna be looking like:
But I quickly got over it, pulled on something that could fit over my bump, and headed to the event.
There were two HUGE lines but I felt like a boss cuz I got to just go right on in to the event.
It was very cool to be there before all the crowds swarmed in!
I headed right up to the Duane Reade Station where there were a ton of great brands and I headed right to my beloved Carmex.
Are you a Carmex user?
Every New Yorker I know, male or female, young or old, has had that lil round Carmex tin in their bag or pocket at some point in their life. It’s a New York brand!
I used to be big into those tins but I would just keep losing it and buying more, so I started using the squeezie tubes and love it even more. I actually use them until it’s finished now!
Visiting with the reps at the Carmex booth was a lot of fun, and I saw some new products I hadn’t seen before, like the very pretty limited edition designed Ultra Moisturizing Moisture Plus Lip Balm sticks.
I had to take a houndstooth one home! Chic!
These designs are only around for the holidays so pick yours up soon. It goes on smooth and clear, in classic Carmex fashion, and also has a slight gloss finish to it. So you can put it on under or over your lipstick with no problem. The SPF is a nice bonus too!
After visiting the Carmex booth I spent a little time roaming the event visiting other great brands like Pop Beauty, where I got a mini makeup makeover, and Kiss where I got a great manicure! If I had more time I would have gotten my eyebrows done at the Tweezerman booth.
Overall it was a great event, and I’m so grateful that I had the chance to attend. By the time I was leaving, it got swamped with people, and the pre-show had started on stage. It was nuts!
Oh, and as it turns out….I was NOT the oldest person there….but I was definitely the most pregnant 🙂
