15 Comments on Giveaway! Win Tickets to The Makeup Show NYC!!!

  1. Alcone is my favorite company exhibiting at the Makeup Show… I love their makeup wipes , makeup sponges and the mother plucker tweezer they are a necessity for my makeup kits .. I also like alcone because its my makeup one-stop shopping spot since they carry a variety of cosmetic brands. Living in NY its easier to make a trip to the Alcone store for supplies and its cuts down on my shipping expenses.

  2. I'm the most excited about Eve Pearl! I can't wait to learn some great techniques at her seminar! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I want to get an airbrush system so I am looking forward to seeing Temptu, Dinair, OCC and Kett. I also want to try Eve Pearl's new liquid foundation.

    I am new to your blog…

  4. I'd have to say, judging by the # of items on my makeup wishlist, Makeup For Ever is my current love. I love the way that they combine the quality of theatrical makeup with contemporary makeup trends.

    My GFC name is summerblue6 & my tweet link is (sure hope I did the link correctly):!/summerblue6

    Thanks much for the giveaway opportunity!

  5. I would love to go to the make-up show!!! My new favorite brand is Stila Cosmetics. I have been using their lip glaze for the longest because I love the way it feels on my lips and since I don't like wearing lip stick often, it gives me the right amount of shine and color. Their lip glaze also goes great over lip sticks to add an nice sheen and helps bring out the color better. My favorite color for their lip glaze is fruit punch! The reason they are officially my new favorite brand is because of their new perfect and correct foundation. This foundation is great for all skin types from ultra dry to ultra oily. I wear it daily over my oil free moisturizer and it never feels like I am wearing anything. It has a nice light weight feel and its build-able. What I really love about it is that because I have an oily t-zone is that it both moisturizes and mattify's, most foundations make me look very shinny very quickly. It also takes well to my complexion, it never leaves me looking ashy and it photographs well!!!

    My other favorite brand is Make Up Forever, I use their matte velvet foundation for a complete matte look. It works really well for me in the summer.

    Also Mac Cosmetics has a great water proof foundation (Studio Sculpt with an spf 15), so its really great at the beach! My fave blush is their sheer tone blush in *breath of plum.

    I could go on for a while so I will stop here, It would be great for me to learn some concealing techniques because I would love to be able to do a flawless face with out having to wear much foundation.

    My GFC is Shelly-Ann Brown

  6. My favorite brand is definetely Inglot. The freedom system is so easy and consumer friendly. The quality definetly surpasses some of the other brands out there today

  7. My favorite brack is Mac Cosmetics. I love, LOVE their eyeshadows, the payoff is amazing and I like their pan pallettes , it allows for easy organizations. I want to win the free ticket to see Mr. Sam Fine in action. He has allowed me to branch out to drug store makeup such as Iman, covergirl queen and wet and wild. As well as helping me discover suitable options for my complexion in higher brands such as YSL, Bobbi brown and Nars.

  8. My favorite is Makeup Forever, I love their foundation! and the payoff of their eyeshadows is great too. GFC is Khambria
