M.A.C. Collection: Fall Color Collection

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

This collection came out in North America on September 29 and will appear internationally in October (although it is out in some international locations).  This is a massive collection with a lot of items that are already in the permanent collection or have be released previously.  I love new items but it’s great getting new ideas for old items.  Some items are permanent at the PRO store, but  you don’t have to have to be a M.A.C. PRO to order.  You can visit to PRO Store or call their 800 number.

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!
