The Makeup Show NYC 2017 - The Goods

Like I said in my previous post, I went way over budget with my purchases, but I'm excited about everything I got.  I made a list and was able to check everything off, and then some. NARS was one of the brands I was very excited to check and had a pretty extensive product list from them.  I was disappointed that they were not at the show this year, although advertised on the list of exhibitors?? Juvia's Place and Tarte were new this year, with Tarte offering a 40% discount.  Since their Shape Tape concealer is highly raved about on youtube, I scooped that up!  Black Up was another brand I was excited about, as they are very brown girl friendly. My highly anticipated items are listed below with an asterisk and will be reviewed in the near future.

 *Juvia's Place Eyeshadow Palette with a free sample

Smashbox *Lid Primer and Liquid Lipstick 

I always purchase lashes and never use them?   

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick and *Lock-It Concealer (other three items are free samples) 

Inglot single eyeshadows (only $5 at the show) and blush

*Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

MUFE magnetic eyeshadow palettes for when I travel

Can't attend the show and not get Bdellium Tools Brushes. They are some of my faves! Also picked up a few from Crown Brushes whose line alway looks like they are handing out free cheese: long and crowded! 

*Black Up Matifying Tinted Moisturizer and Sublime Powder Highlighter (the powder was an impulse buy) 

Beauty Blender - I have all the sizes now.  This was an exceptional deal at $35 (one blender is $20)

Makeup Mondays - The Makeup Show NYC 2017

I've been attending the Makeup Show NYC for the past ten years. I love the networking, catching up with fellow beauty bloggers and artists, discovering new brands and of course buying products at discounted rates.  The show is usually the week before Mother's Day, so it gives me the excuse to spend more money than I actually have.  Oh well...

Sidebar: I was trying to make the day all about me, but a few attendees had their kids in tow and had me feeling like I abandoned mine.  Ahhhhh, the guilt of motherhood :-)

  My first stop...Kat Von D

This is my first time seeing Tarte at the show
