The Makeup Show NYC
I previously mentioned The Makeup Show NYC 2010 which I attended on Sunday with my girl Jen (hey Jen!)
There was a huge turn out and lovely ladies (and gents) all packed into the Metropolitan Pavilion in NYC. This was my first time going to the show and I was not overly impressed.
There were a good number of companies there with the biggest booths being Make Up For Ever, MAC, Inglot and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. There were also some new start-up brands and smaller companies around.
I didn't watch any of the demos since I was there for makeup! So I can't say who was there or how fabulous they were.
The Make Up For Ever and Inglot booths were obvious crowd favorites and had non-stop crowds. The MAC booth was a fiasco because their computer system was down and no one was able to buy any products. Boooo!
But anyway...what did I get???
- OCC Lip Tars and a couple loose eyeshadows
- Inglot Gel Eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipgloss and lip pencils
- Stila Skin Corrector, eyeliner pencils and liquid liner
- Naked Cosmetics loose eyeshadows
- Model in a Bottle Setting Spray
- Eve Pearl Concealer
- Ricky's Eyelashes
I didn't get too much because a lot of the products were being sold at retail price. What was the benefit of that? I will be posting swatches and reviews of a few of these products in the upcoming weeks as I try them out....we'll see how that goes!
SHOUT OUT to two beautiful ladies that I met (in person) at the show....TYSH and AMY!
Tysh you are fab girl! Your makeup was to die for!!! You are so beautiful!
Pretty girl Amy say hi to your boyfriend for me : ). Super cute!
And special mention to fabulous Keisha...my boyfriend's college friend who I also met (the night before)! Holla girl!
