Almay's #SimplyAmerican Bus Tour


You may have seen on our social channels that I spent a glorious afternoon last Friday in Manhattan being pampered by Almay on its "Simply American" bus tour stop in Flatiron Plaza. The Simply American experience was designed to honor women in the U.S. military and veterans, celebrating the spirit of American beauty from the inside out, and will be traveling across the country this summer to places that best exemplify the American spirit.

Here are some highlights from NYC stop:


Almay has already donated $250,000 to the USO, a private non-profit, whose mission is to support service members, and is donating another $1 for every Simply American moment photo uploaded to social media with the hashtag #SimplyAmerican, up to $10,000.

The Simply American bus is outfitted with makeup stations, a wall of product, and fun photo booth. Visitors receive touch ups, can play games, participate in giveaways, and more.


I received a lip touch up with the NEW Smart Shade Butter Kiss™ Lipstick in Berry. It goes on super smooth and is SO hydrating. Each of the four colors comes in Light, Medium, and Dark, to suit your skin tone and take the guess work out choosing a complimentary shade. Here's my Simply American moment outside the bus feeling more fresh and confident:
