Lord & Taylor’s memorably elegant Manhattan flagship may now be gone, but the Eastchester store is still going strong with celebrity appearances by people like New York Yankees ace-turned-ace-broadcaster David Cone, one of WAG’s most fascinating men, and specialty days. Over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, WAG took part in one of L & T’s Charity Days, supporting NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness). For $5 you received 30 percent off most items and 15 percent off virtually all beauty products. (Last year, L&T raised more than $1.1 million during its fundraising events.)
With a storm that turned out to be something of a bust (thank goodness) nonetheless bearing down on Saturday, we decided to take our own little mental health break with a facial at the Borghese counter, which was holding a Spa Day with Borghese business manager Joy Robison, specialist Margaret Mukoro and regional account specialist Ivan Canot.
First, Margaret applied Borghese’s Mineral Water Cleanser and then its well-known Gold Mask, which was, for us, the winning product of the day – light but luscious, leaving skin taut yet supple and oh-so-smooth. She followed this with the Effetto toner and the Ristorativo line of hydrating serum, moisturizer, eye cream and, though it was daytime, night cream (for the neck). After this, Joy gave us a natural makeup look using a minimal base, a three-part concealer, a bronzer and hot pink lip gloss.
“You look fabulous,” Ivan said.
We couldn’t but agree.
