The Makeup Show New York 2016 Haul

Last year it was IMATS, this year we hit up The Makeup Show. If you follow us on Instagram you've already seen a lot of the pics. I'll have another post on the experience but for now here's what I picked up.

Small huh? I'd recently done quite a bit of damage at Sephora so there wasn't much on my 'must have' list. Of course there were plenty pretty things that I just couldn't resist:

  • Limited edition Betty Boop large Z Palette
  • Sample jars from Dante Disposables
  • Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Mattifying Primer (mini)
  • Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer '14'
  • Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow 'ME-302'
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip pencils '5C' & '9C'
  • NARS Audacious Lipstick 'Vanessa'
  • NARS Blushes 'Taj Mahal' and 'Exhibit A' (pan refills)
  • NARS Dual Intensity Blush 'Sexual Content' (limited edition)
  • OCC nail polishes: 'Belladonna', 'Feathered', 'Sebastian' and 'Silence'
  • OCC Lip Tar 'Lydia' (new Ready To Wear packaging)
  • Cozzette S125 Oval Powder brush 
I knew I wanted the concealer and eyeshadow from Make Up For Ever, 'Vanessa' had to come home with me and of course some OCC polishes...everything else just hopped in my bag :/

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.

M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
