The Make Up Show NYC - Blogger Preview

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

I'm taking advantage of the fact that it's pissing down with rain outside, and so I'm doing a quick post as I'm not leaving the house until it's stopped!

The Make Up Show New York ended yesterday after two days of hectic make up madness, for both industry professionals and consumers alike and it was a fab experience, which I'm only just recovering from - and to think I only attended one day!


On Saturday afternoon, I met up with Adina from Krasey Beauty (who's just as lovely in person, as I'd imagined her to be) and we attended a bloggers preview event (it was like a bloggers convention - pretty surreal) hosted by James Vincent, Director of Artistry for The Make Up Show. We were all given a sneek preview of some of the new products that brands present at the show would be unveiling and promoting during the two day event.


Kevin J Bennett from Make Up For Ever also made a quick appearance in which he sang the praises of their HD blushes and new Aqua Creams.


The Makeup Show celebrated its fifth birthday and was promised to be bigger and better than ever. Obviously this was my first time attending, so I was excited to see what was in store, but even more excited to meet so many of the U.S beauty bloggers whose blogs I read regularly and who I banter with on Twitter. I met so many bloggers, it was so cool!

Some of the products and brands highlighted during the blogger preview were:

Armour Beauty Lipglosses
Smashbox HALO Powder in yellow
Three Custom Color - their new lipsticks
K.O (Knock Out Cosmetics) Flatte Matte Nail Polishes
