The Makeup Show, an annual event that happens in several cities that brings professional beauty & fashion industries together, came to NYC last Sunday & Monday. I had the opportunity to attend a special Blogger Preview night that happens the day before the show officially opens to get the low-down on what to expect at the show.
Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a gift bag with product samples. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

During the preview James Vincent, the Director of Artistry for The Makeup Show (TMS), gave us the show highlights on keynote speakers, educational seminars, and then we had a sneak peek at some of the new products launching at TMS.
There were over 120 brands represented at TMS NYC this year, their largest show yet! Several brands and companies use TMS as a platform to launch themselves into the market and showcase their newest products to the pros of the industry before going public.
A few cool new products that I can't wait to test out:
Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Waterproof Glide-on Eye Shadow - pretty cool waterproof and smudge proof eyeshadow that comes in an automatic retractable pencil and best thing is the sharpener is in the pencil so the tip always comes out sharp!
Senna Cosmetics Pinpoint Micro Tip Eyeliner - a long lasting, highly pigmented, carbon black formula eyeliner with a ultra fine tip
Armour V Lip Gloss - Armour Beauty's newest release in their rock-n-roll inspired brand is called 'Brigitte' which is a vegan nude gloss inspired by Brigitte Bardot. A cute pinkish nude with a hint of shimmer that will look good on anyone!
After the preview, all the bloggers got a exclusive sneak peek into the Kevyn Aucoin Icon Gallery, a tribute to Kevyn's artistry and influence in the beauty industry.
We saw his last working makeup kit that includes prototypes of products he was planning to produce as part of his makeup line
The exhibit also showcased some of Kevyn's amazing celebrity drawings.
It was a great evening to learn about new products that was showcased in The Makeup Show and can't wait to try out all the new products!
