A few weeks ago, my friend, the beauty editor Ani spent some quality time attending presentations by awesome beauty brands. It was a day full of fun beauty discoveries, lipstick testings, hairstyle makeovers, and laughs. Of course, we also made sure to take tons of photos so you guys can see with your own eyes what happened—in case you missed my Snapchat report that day.
Our “girls day out” started early, as I always try to put my best foot forward before attending any beauty event. I took a bath filled with my rose petals bomb from Lush, followed by an eye gel mask by Skyn Iceland and a full-face makeup (of course, I was wearing red lipstick). Since we were heading to a presentation by Stila, one of the first new brands I tried when I moved to New York, I wanted to wear something special, so I picked a Rred lace dress by Rachel Zoe and my new favorite clutch by Kate Spade. I call it my “Titanic clutch.” I can’t tell you how obsessed I was with that movie in the 1990s! Just like a blockbuster movie would, this accessory attracted lots of attention from the event’s other guests.
The launch of Stila’s new, redesigned line of makeup products took place at a restaurant in the Meatpacking district where—just as we expected—we had so much fun. There was a whole truckload of new makeup products by Stila available to play with—can you imagine how excited I was? I painted both my hands with swatches of new Stila products while Ani got a purple lip makeover. Doesn’t she look stunning with this trendy lip shade on her? I wish I could pull this off!
After the Stila event, we went on a Pokemon hunt at Chelsea Market and then switched gears to attend the IGK event. In case you don’t know, IGK is a new hot line of haircare products now available at Sephora. This collection launched by creative hairstylists from Miami, Los Angeles, and New York, features some of the most revolutionary professional styling products I’ve tried (look for a separate review on the blog soon). Ani and I were excited to get our hair done by renowned hairdressers and chat with the friendly stuff of IGK Salon, conveniently located in the Dream Hotel lobby.
I look forward to hearing about events you attended this week. Please leave your answer in the comments area below!
