Jane Iredale's Country Weekend

Thursday, March 05, 2015

Last week, I was invited upstate in Bedford, NY for a countryside dinner. It was themed based on Jane Iredale's newest collection, called Country Weekend. It features a limited edition getaway eye shadow kit ($58), a jelly jar gel eyeliner in Espresso ($28), and a Just Kissed lip and cheek stain in Forever Peach ($25). The eye shadow palette includes highly pigmented shades perfect for any skin tone and is set in a rose gold mirrored compact. It's perfect for everyday wear as it really goes with everything. The Espresso gel eyeliner is a shimmery brown grey and gives a defining dark line, but still is a softer look rather than a harsh black. Best of all, it's water resistant. My favorite from the bunch is the lip and cheek stain. One, for its versatility. Second, for the beautiful color. It enhances the skin's unique undertone and natural coloring, while moisturizing at the same time.
We were transported to the Bedford Post Inn, which was absolutely beautiful upon arrival. It was a cozy spot - perfect for a city escape. Fortunately, we had better weather then (lately it's been snowing & freezing cold, including today!).
We walked in and were able to view the collection up close and even have makeup touch ups utilizing the collection. It was nice to actually try it while viewing & learning about the products. Later on, we were treated to a cooking demo, where we were able to watch and actually try to make handmade ravioli.

The cooking demo was fun, but good thing we were served the real deal later (done by professionals!). It was SO scrumptious, a few of us actually requested an extra plate to share even more! My mouth is still watering over it. If anything, that would probably be the reason I visit back. Seriously.

We were also kindly treated to a wine pairing with both dishes. A white wine with our beet salad, and a lovely red with our main dish. The other entree option featured halibut - I sampled it from a fellow blogger who sat next to me that ordered it, and it was equally delicious.
