Bendel's -- famous for those oh-so-cute brown-and-white shopping bags you see all over Fifth Avenue every day -- opens up its doors twice a year to the lucky beauty industry insiders who happen to get an invitation. I've been dying for an invitation for years ... and finally, finally this year I got one!
Stepping through the doors was like stepping into heaven. Before me lay tables and tables full of products by fantastic brands like Laura Mercier, Ted Gibson, Kai and Mally Beauty, in addition to gorgeous new lines such as Isabela Capeto and Beauty Rehab. Walking from table to table left me breathless and in awe of how many new products there are to test out! But my favorite part of the event was getting to finally meet some of my fellow beauty bloggers. All in all, it was such a fantastic experience -- and I definitely have products to tell all of you about in future posts!
