First a makeover in NYC, now a beauty weekend at South Coast Plaza – I have to say, I’m feeling pretty fancy lately! But unlike the NYC trip, you CAN (and should!) join us on this shopping extravaganza.

We’ve raved on (and on) about the bounty of high end, exclusive beauty to be found at South Coast Plaza (or as we like to call it, “the happiest place on earth”) and this weekend is the perfect chance for you to discover the SCP as well!

For three days, SCP is celebrating the very best in beauty with “fantastic promotions, tips and gifts from some of our favorite beauty boutiques and counters, from Saks to Kiehl’s, Fresh, Origins, Sephora and many more.”

The event kicks off on Friday, September 30th with the unveiling of the North American launch of M.A.C’s Posh Paradise exhibit. Insired by Lady Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Formichetti, (who styled the fall campaign), it features live body paintings as fashion installations that capture the color palette of the Posh Paradise collection.

Plus, over the weekend you’ll have the chance to meet some of Southern California’s best and brightest beauty bloggers while shopping fall’s best trends.

And that’s where we come in – we heart this is thrilled to announce we will be at Saks 5th Avenue on Saturday, October 1st from 12 noon until 4pm! Please join us at Saks and go on A Face Odyssey, where we will share our favorite beauty gadgets, high tech formulas, modern metallic colors and futuristic looks.

We can’t wait to meet our fellow beauty lovers and share our fave products and tips with you. (And did we mention there’s a sample filled metallic tote included with a $100 Saks beauty purchase?). We hope to see you there!
