Robert Verdi’s Luxe Laboratory Fashion Week Retreat

Another Fashion Week means another wonderful trip to Robert Verdi’s Luxe Laboratory Fashion Week Retreat. Happily I had the opportunity to relax, revitalize and renew aching shoulders and feet) a bit more at Robert’s retreat this season and was again introduced to some amazing brands – most of which I was happily already familiar with. I had a pre-set appt with Sinful Colors Nail Polish for a fresh mani

They have such an array of vibrant colors, it took me a while to select my colors but that’s the fun part, isn’t it. I finally decided on Bali Mist and topped it off with Frenzy. This great Toluene, formaldehyde & DBP free collection of nail polish retails for a fabulous $1.99, so stocking up on numerous colors won’t break your bank. You can also layer colors on top of each other which makes for great custom color creations. My next stop was to Neutrogena to get a touchup and try some new eyeshadows.

Why do I love Neutrogena‘s products, they make it easy. Their colors are universally appealing and fitting. I have been a fan of their product since high school and my newest obsession is their Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, a skin saving must-have.

From makeup at Neutrogena to hair at T3; while the schedule was booked for a hair touch-up, I did get to know about the T3 SinglePass Compact Iron (I’m a proud owner of the T3 Featherweight Hair Dryer)

From straightening to curling, the T3 SinglePass Compact offers full styling capability in a portable size with the added convenience of a heat resistant cap for safe storage and ease of travel. This styling iron can be stored at the office for quick touch ups or inside your purse, gym bag or carry-on luggage ensuring your tresses stay perfectly styled no matter where your busy schedule or travels may take you. From T3, I was reacquainted with a product I’d written about a mere two weeks before this event – the amazing Pop Phone from Native Union

As stated in my previous post, What I’m Coveting – Native Union ‘POP’ Phone Handset – I’d been craving to get closer to one of these – to touch it, hold it, try it out and I happily got a chance to fully experience this handset – its so cool. After my visit with Pop Phone, I was introduced to the newest fashionable collection from Reach ToothbrushReach by Design. That’s right…fashionable toothbrushes

Reach by Design is a partnership with Jeff Lewis, star of the hit TV series Flipping Out, and Fashion Designer Shoshanna Gruss to launch an exclusive collection of 8 limited-edition toothbrushes. From reach I strolled on to the gorgeous jewelry from Bamboo Pink.

Bamboo Pink offers affordable, on-trend, luxe jewelry designed to help women prosper personally and financially, allowing you the chance to be your own boss, set your own hours, and your path to success. Their collection offers an array of earrings, stackable and cocktail rings, pendants and chain necklaces, bracelets and cuffs all made with the finest crystals, seasonal colored stones, and materials. The bamboopink line offers the same versatility of interchangeable hoops and charms, necklaces and pendants which allow you to change your look from day to evening by simply adding different charms. After oohing and aahing over the jewelry, I moved on to Sensa, a product I’d just ordered for my mom (she received it a week before the luxe lounge)

SENSA® was designed to work with your sense of smell to help trigger Sensory Specific Satiety. As you eat smell and taste receptors send messages to your brain which release hormones that tell your body it’s time to stop eating. All you do is sprinkle it on everything you eat, no counting calories, no weighing your food. As I mentioned above, I’d just ordered it for my mom but before I did, I made sure I did an extensive research because my mom is diabetic. Not only is it safe for her, the forums on has an entire area with diabetics sharing their stories and experience with Sensa. After Sensa, I stopped by DL1961 Jeans to check out the new colored denim

I was previously introduced to this collection and their 4-way stretch denim at a previous fashion week event. Their jeans work great with any body type, a plus if you have curves. My final stop before heading back out to the shows, was to see Robert Verdi’s Eyewear Collection for HSN

I recently wrote about the launch here – Robert Verdi (Finally!!) Launches Sunglass Collection, this has been a long time coming for Robert. When discussing my write-up about his launch with a few people, all had the same reaction – it’s about time!!
