FNO on the Town
Preparing for Fashion Night Out is no easy feat. There are plenty of places to see and people to meet, not to mention celeb spotting everywhere, models in designers very best and of course the crowd goers who are only there for the complimentary drinks.
Trying to avoid the crowds and the usual hustle and bustle that is Midtown Manhattan, I entered the Opia Lounge on 57th and Lex to take a gander at what they had to offer. The partay was hosted by the New York Post (swanky) and Farasha Boutique featuring independent fashion and beauty brands.
LypSyl was my first stop in the small, crowded lounge which is a semi-new to market, all-natural lip balm. It comes in a neat compact case and is made with pure Swedish beeswax to help moisturize, soften and protect your lips. "It works like magic," said Deirdre Williams, Director of Marketing for Lormeada, " It's long lasting and there is no need to reapply." She recommends the best time to use it for optimal effects is right before you go to sleep. For a company that has been around for 100 years, they sure know how to make a long lasting, moisturizing lip balm.
Kiss nails have been around for as long as I can remember. For a complimentary Kiss manicure the line went through the entire party for a chance at walking out with fresh press on nails. The other long line was for the complimentary Kiss False Eyelash application. The product promises a perfect application every time. The built-in applicator strings help position the lash perfectly used with Kiss Strip Eyelash Adhesive. The eyelashes looked super fabulous as Kiss uses top quality natural hair as premium priced department store brands do.
