Another one of the booths that interested me at The Makeup Show
was the Korres
booth. Now, I don’t really know too much about the line, but they were debuting their new Materia Herba line
of organic skincare at the show.
I didn’t get to learn too much about it, as the lovely lady was a bit busy, but I did get to smell/feel it and it was very soft and smelled good, if a bit strong. But that wore off after it absorbed a bit more. If anything it made me more interested in learning about this line.
*I kick myself, because, they also had the new primer
, and I didn’t pick any up then. Because, now it’s out of stock:
This primer has an “innovative natural and organic formula [98.93% natural/ 11.19% out of which organic], based on a blend of soothing natural and botanical ingredients, refines skin texture by reducing redness, uneven or dull skin tones and creates a non oily, silky film, acting as a barrier between skin and makeup revealing a long-lasting radiant skin. Packed with antioxidant, nourishing vitamin E, Jojoba and Sunflower oils and Edelweiss extract. This silky, fast-absorbing formulation acts as a layer, keeping skin elastic and comfortable, while ensuring smooth, long-lasting make-up application.” So, see why I want to try it? Oh well, at least we can sign-up and be notified when it’s back in stock and pick up some then.
Okay, let’s talk about the goodies first. Goodies are good, right?Now, I didn’t get to finish the tour at the blogger preview so I didn’t swing some of the things they did (*ahem – OCC Liptar in Grandma or a Luminess Airbrush Tanning System, but I did get to meet Pat McGrath, so there’s that. Ha.). Anyway, this is what I walked away from the show with:
So, there we have it. Not a bad haul of neat new things to try. As I post about the vendors to follow, I will talk about what I’ve tried and my thoughts on them, too.
See anything you like?
Wow, who would have thought that taking 5 days off work, coming back to a 4 day work week just before the end of the month closing might cause a person to be too busy to have any fun and not be around to finish her stories (but still allow her the ability to create a long ass run-on sentence)?
I sure didn’t. Now I do. Now, where were we…..
During my trip to NYC, I was so lucky to have some of the nicest weather imaginable. It made for strolling along the streets at night so much better. Saturday night, we were wandering around the Lower East Side, we passed by “The Box” nightclub. Now, I may have been rocking my Dolce & Gabbana smokey eye, but I sure was not dressed to go into the nightclub – as much as I would have loved to (I adore old style vaudville/burlesque times). So, the closest I have come to seeing the inside of it is thru the commercial that the lovely Anne Hathaway recently did for Lancôme’s new fragrance, “Magnifique”.
Anne shot the video in March, after working with a choreographer for a week prior. There were 100 extras and she was styled by Rachel Zoe for the shoot. You can see the video on the Lancôme’s blog, where you can also read about Kerry Diamond’s thoughts from the shoot that day. (*If you go directly to the “Magnifique” page you can see a second version of Anne’s commercial, but it doesn’t have near the fancy footwork as the first one.)
And, as a treat for all my reader Lovelies, I get the chance to give away one (1) bottle of this fragrance, because I missed you guys so much while I was gone. I’ll start the giveaway today, and let it go until Midnight(cst) next Wednesday, June 3rd. I will announce the winner on Thursday, June 4th. I’ll even make it super simple for you – just enter your name and email addy in the box below. That’s it. Easy peasy.
