Stiletto Jungle Hits Estée Lauder's America's Night to Repair Event

Last Thursday I had the chance to hang out at the Estée Lauder America's Night to Repair event at Macy's Union Square in San Francisco. As you may have saw in my previous post, America's Night to Repair is a fabulous Estée Lauder event that took place at counters nationwide. At the event, customers could receive free samples of Estée Lauder's best-selling Advanced Night Repair serum or new Advanced Night Repair eye, as well as enjoy Estée Lauder Signature Services. I visited the San Francisco event with Natalie of Coquette and Beth of Beauty Junkie in SF.

Leading up to the event I'd been using the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye, which I previously reviewed. At the event, my makeup artist, Cilma, used the original Advanced Night Repair on my skin. The immediate effect of the serum totally blew me away. So many skincare products caution that you'll have to wait weeks to see any results at all, but Advanced Night Repair had an immediate effect on my skin. The lightweight serum settled into my skin right away, plumping and smoothing my skin. It was crazy! I'm so excited to use the 10-day sample I picked up at the event to see what it can do over time.

After prepping my skin with the Advanced Night Repair and moisturizer, Cilma proceeded to give me a full Estée Lauder makeover. I got to experience many of the counter's Signature Services, which are available free of charge to anyone who stops by the Estée Lauder counter. My absolute favorite part was when Cilma showed me how to cover my obnoxious, hereditary dark under-eye circles. She mixed a bit of Advanced Night Repair eye with concealer and then dabbed the mixture on with a makeup brush. The results were amazing! I've tried just about everything to combat my dark circles, but this is the first makeup fix that really did look like it erased my circles. You can get a demo by stopping by your Estée Lauder counter for their "Fatigue Fighter" Two-Minute Touch-Ups service.

Overall, I had a fabulous experience at the Macy's Union Square counter. All of the people who work at the counter are super friendly, helpful and full of positive energy. If you are in the San Francisco area, I highly recommend stopping by to check out Estée Lauder Signature Services-- ask for Cilma and tell her I sent you! Or, check out the services at your local Estée Lauder counter. Want to see more pictures from the San Francisco event, including more makeover pictures of me, Natalie and Beth? I've uploaded a bunch to the Stiletto Jungle Facebook page.
