Beauty At Bmex 2014

Looks like this is becoming a thing...

I feel like in last year's post there was so much more to tell you about.

BMEX 2014 was around the middle of June and the beauty community's presence wasn't really felt. I went on the Saturday afternoon, so maybe there was more happening on the Sunday, and the only cosmetic companies that I saw were Essential Trends and Make-Up Doll Cosmetics.

Dee and Darren from Essential Trends are always fun to talk to.

Dee's makeup always looks flawless!


In addition to their usual offering of Sleek and e.l.f products Dee had cute compact mirrors





Darren also had his neck and bow ties on display from his brand new company Vie De Laselle. There were some very vibrant colours.

Last year I didn't get to speak to anyone from Make-Up Doll so I had to make amends. Shakita and Ebony were on hand to discuss the products with patrons as well as give recommendations. This brand became popular due to their lip glosses and have since increased their product range to include pigments, blushes and now brushes.

Yup, that's all I got for yuh. Seems like we need to organise our own "tradeshow".
