We can't believe it's that time again but already we're revving up for our break-of-dawn flight to New York Fashion Week to bring you all the backstage gossip, OMG new products and SS13 trends as they happen.
As EBT's roving reporter for this season, I'm packing a bumper beauty survival kit to see me through the shows. Passport to the ready, I've got my priorities straight with a pack of Compeed Blister Plasters and my trusty Palmer's Coco Butter Formula Lip Butter topping my list.
It's 29 degrees in Manhattan right now so I'm prepping for a 'legs out' season with L'Oreal Paris' Sublime Bronze Express, leaving Max Factor's new All Day Flawless 3-in-1 primer, foundation and concealer (available from October) to work some much needed miracles on my under eye shadows. I'm guessing tonight may be the last date my hair has with a shower for some time, (cue Percy and Reed's heroic Dry Shampoo) - which only leaves me to ho-hum over purple Velvet Rope and Red Delicious from Revlon's ColorStay Longwear Nail Enamel range that lasts, lasts and lasts longer still.
Sleep is usually pretty scant on the FW agenda so I'm hoping the B12 Boost Pure Oral Energy Spray will do exactly what it says on the tin. See you on the other side at the first show...
