FYI: Please note blogger was down last week for a day so we are a little behind on our posts. Also if you left a comment for the Joico Dryer giveaway, you may want to re-check if it's still there, as blogger deleted over 40 comments on May 12th due to their problems.
One of my favorite parts of the year is The Makeup Show. It's a pro only event where thousands of makeup artists come to check out hundreds of brands that unveil their latest and greatest products or just offer their products at a discounted price. You also really get to see some gorgeous work from other artists.
I got to talking to a few brands, and here's what's going on with them.
Huge trend this season is bright bright eyes! Whether it's eyeshadow or liner, the brighter the better. Stila is releasing the first ever pigmented waterproof glitter eye liners. These are designed to stay put no matter what you do, even after SWIMMING. They come in 8 different shades. Here are swatches of some of them:
They are also releasing their Perfect & Correct Foundation. It contains some major ingredients like ginseng, gingko biloba, and hyuloronic acid which is a great skin humectant. Stila says Perfect & Correct offers lightweight, buildable, and long-lasting coverage while improving the look and feel of skin.
Their newest product is the Aqualiner. It's a waterproof eyeliner that is designed to stay put no matter. what you do and comes in 15 different Shades. They also revealed their Uplight.
Uplight is an additive. (Meaning you can add it to something like your foundation or lotions or use it alone.) It gives you gorgeous luminous skin. It comes in three different categories: The teen category is very sheer and light. The two series, 21, 22, 23, a little more shine, the three series a lot of shine with sparkle. These are water based.
Motives by Loren Ridinger
I never knew that Motives customizes their foundation to your skin tone. If you have skin problems, they will also add products that will improve your skin health. They had some gorgeous eyeshadow colors. I picked a few of them up and will review them soon.
HissyFit by Reggie Wells
I was so close to Oprah this weekend!!! Well not really. But her makeup artist Reggie Wells was at the show with his line Hissy Fit. A line he specifically made to help Oprah because she didn't know how to apply her own makeup. We'll give you a review of what we think soon.
The Kevyn Aucoin brand revealed to me that they are revamping their whole line and their packaging as of Feb 2012. Not sure how I felt about that. I loved their products already and to me their packaging looks so elegant and gorgeous. Change is not always good. But oh well. We'll see....
Smashbox revealed their Creamy Cheek Trio. A gorgeous set of cream blushes at an amazing price. $48.00 bucks.
We'll try to make it to round 2 today at The Makeup Show today.
Here's what I did this weekend:
After the show I met up with Cassie and we took a walk around the city. We spotted this unbelievable statue in the park.
The statue is called Echo and was created by Spanish designer Jaume Piensa. It depicts his 9 year old neighbor lost in a state of thought. It was so beautiful.
After that, I came home and tried to teach my lil man how to sweep the house. Hey I need help around the house too.
Sweeping wasn't his thing.
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
