Makeup and Facials and Bronzers Oh My!

Last Thursday the 23rd, I attended Beauty Binge 2011 ~ BEAUTYNISTAS Night Out. This beauty extravaganza was hosted by Shop Addicts, and was definitely the place to be in New York. As I walked into the event I was overwhelmed with the amount of stuff going on. There were tables everywhere representing different brands and salons. I didn’t know where to start, but I eventually got a game plan down-packed.

Vera Moore’s makeup collection was the first to grab my attention. Not only was it laid out beautifully, but the ladies doing the makeup were more than helpful and ready to answer any questions. Vera Moore had a huge variety of shades and colors to choose from when it came to coverage -- which is major!

Next I made my way to PANYC Salon’s table where I got the cutest feathers added to my hair. I chose to mix the purple and turquoise feathers together. Many thanks to the beautiful Pauline from PANYC who so perfectly added the feathers. She’s great!

You all must know by now how obsessed I am with bronzing -- so you’ll understand why I stopped dead in my tracks when I came across Roxanne Cosmetics. Celebrity makeup artist Roxanne Rizzo has the most amazing bronzing product called Bronze Glow. I hesitated removing my makeup, but Roxanne assured me that it would be worth it. After wiping off my own bronzer she misted me with Bronze Glow and even applied some to my chest. The product smelled great and there were no stains left on clothes. There is no other way to put it, but to say my skin was glowing afterwards. This is the type of product worth investing in. And not only was Roxanne beyond gorgeous but she was super sweet!

The event continued with complimentary facials, manicures, jewelry and even full-out hair styling. The people were great and the products were countless. I left with more than enough products to review and share with all of you. There were even some yummy samples from the Kissing Cake. Check out the lipstick cupcakes and purse cake. Get ready to get to know some new glam products this summer.

I even got to meet the lovely blogger Vanessa Flowers from 24Blogazine. If you're not already following her blogazine -- you should be!
