Caron Powder Puffs Gang
I visited NYC this weekend with Patti(MUA's Cavewoman), Ceil(aka Tussah)and Marianne(aka Koneko's Beauty Diary). We met up with the NYCers Angie(Twizler), Jessica(Stanzi), ChattyKathy(Kathy), Farran(aka Self Styled Siren), and Kristen(aka Beauty Addict). Our first stop was the Caron Boutique. We have been faithful shoppers with the store for years. Chattykathy is officially known as a Caron Ambassador. She has turned us all on to the joys of the fragrance, loose powders and makeup.
The store has moved from their previous location so it is slightly more difficult to visit. It is nestled in the PhytoUniverse salon at 715 Lexington Avenue with it's entrance on 58th Street. You step into the entrance of the salon and you spot out of the corner of your eye, the twinkling chandelier and the fragrance urns. The store is tiny and jammed packed with all the usual favorites from swan powder puffs to lay down bottles. It was wonderful to rediscover it again after all these years. I caved on Madame loose powder, an elegant loose powder compact(to house my La Mer powder)and a peach powder puff. I waffled on my powder puff decision. I originally gravitated toward the mint green, moved onto the peeps yellow and almost splurged on the magenta puff.
Instead...I chose the peach/apricot shade.
There was just something so girly and feminine about it.
I plan to photograph it soon so you can bask in it's loveliness.
