Happy Labour Day to those in the U.S.! Sadly, summer is rapidly coming to an end.  It is already getting cool at night here in NYC. Le sigh….

Here’s a quick LOTD that I wore this weekend, matte grey with a pop of shimmery, royal sea blue.

INGLOT adds more mattes for me to buy!

INGLOT Cosmetics has extended their matte eye shadow offerings! Truth be told, I have very few mattes in my collection, so I am super excited to see what the texture is like.  The colours look amaze!! Everytime I go to a trade show with the intention of getting some INGLOT products, the chaos at the booth makes it almost impossible.  I love me some shimmer products, but mattes are a great way to turn up the drama by using a different texture.  I need to check out their greys and some of their corals and teals for summer. And with the new 40-pan Freedom palettes, this would be great to have!

INGLOT Cosmetics is excited to announce the launch of the new extended matte eyeshadow collection.  This highly pigmented eyeshadow is now available in 71 matte shades and can be applied individually or mixed with other colours to create an infinite number of eye-catching hues!

This extensive range of shadows was designed to provide a more comprehensive shade range for all consumers and professional makeup artists.  The line contains a vast assortment of vibrant colors from pinks, blues, and greens, to softer shades of nudes and vanilla to help women everywhere find the shade that suits them best.  After selecting your perfect matte eyeshadows, create a customized Freedom System palette full of colours personalized to your very own taste.

The Makeup Show Review!!

What an event!!!

But before I get to that, let me talk about the event held Saturday night by Erin a.k.a Scandalous Beauty.  This was a meet and greet at the Taj II lounge in Chelsea.  A very relaxed, chill event where I got to meet some people that I have been watching on YouTube since I discovered it, including Erin from Scandalous Beauty, Cindy aka DRBrooklyn730, Aina from Lacquerholic and Ivette from Girl Can Paint.   Also met some fashion and music bloggers, photographers from all across the East Coast and it was great interacting with such a diverse crowd.  This was just a preview of things to come!!

I was not 100% sure of what to expect of The Makeup Show, so I bought a ticket for only one of the two days.  Note to self: Make sure yuh buy ah ticket for de two days nex’ year.  It’s absolutely worth it!!!!!!!!

This is an event held yearly in NYC by the Powder Group and Michael DeVellis.  There are other shows hosted in other cities like Miami, L.A. and Chicago.  Check the Powder Group’s website for details.

The NYC version is the biggest trade event for makeup artists, makeup brands, bloggers and enthusiasts.  I got there at about 9:20 am and there was already a line outside the Metropolitan Pavilion!!! Once inside, I literally was blown away!  Many of the top makeup brands had booths: M.A.C. Pro, Make Up For Ever, Inglot, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Eve Pearl,  Smashbox Pro.  There were some lesser known brands like Yaby and Youngblood.  Airbrush company Temptu Pro, well known professional lines Mehron and Graftobian, Crown Brushes and Nigel’s Beauty Emporium also made appearances.

This was an amazing experience!!!!  So many people, all different styles of makeup, body painting.  I was in awe!! I was able to learn a lot of little tricks and tips.  I was able to see how other famous makeup artistes worked and watched them create, in my opinion, gorgeous results that seem so effortless.  I hope that one day, I could attain that level of skill!!!  I walked around in circles just looking at all that makeup and products.  MUFE had a perpetual line for their cashiers, like 30 people deep! All day long….

People were for sure buying these…..

The new MUFE Aqua Creams! They're waterproof!
