The Makeup Show New York Beauty Tour

May like it does be rough for me and blogging...I dunno why but I am having the toughest time getting back into the swing of things. Irony is, May 21 marked three years that this blog has been going. Take a look back at the very first post here.

On to business...

I'm still going to tell you about my Makeup Show experience but I believe the Beauty Tour deserves its own post. Please check out our Instagram page for the videos I posted along the way. I first must thank Sharalee for even telling me about the Beauty Tour. When I purchased my tickets for The Makeup Show I did notice that there were additional classes that you could pay to attend but I didn't really look through the events. It was Sharalee who brought this one to my attention. So I called, added this to the itinerary and they promptly got their $55USD.

Mr. James Vincent wanted to share his favourite beauty places and brands to shop in NYC. We were taken to M.A.C 7 W 22nd Street, Inglot, Sephora Meatpacking District, NARS 413 Bleecker, OCC and then the Make Up For Ever Boutique.

Prepare for picture overload.

In a word: amazing. The New York history lessons from James, meeting other makeup lovers who also came from far (Trinidad and Nigeria even), talking to the Pros - especially Lori Taylor Davis, Smashbox's Global Pro Lead Artist - , the hospitality everyone extended to us...just amazing. Most retailers offered some manner of discount to all patrons while others just honoured their Pro discounts for those who qualified. OCC was the most impressive since they gave us 40% off storewide.

Did I mention that they also gave us gifts?

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.
