The Caribbean Nail and Beauty Trade Show 2011

What did you guys do this weekend? Well this was my first time attending the Caribbean Nail and Beauty Trade show, but this is its third year in action. This event was held at the Centre of Excellence in Macoya and I found out about it through their facebook page. As the name suggests this event is all about nails, makeup, hair and anything beauty related. So right up my alley! I got a few girlfriends and we just had to check this out.
What I love about an event like this is that it is centered on local suppliers and someone like me can be exposed to where to get things, new products and the latest trends. I felt though that there was way more booths related to nails that to the hair or cosmetics but that didn’t stop me from enjoying the event.

Speaking about nails, items on display were lots of additions for acrylics and ice nails, acrylic powders, the newer to the market gel nails and its system, nail polishes, nail art brushes and the list goes on.
What interested me was the famous Konad had its imitation sister at this event and from the demonstration they seem to work just as well as the real thing.
I also like the 3D nail art stick on thingies which come in stick forms and can be sliced thinly. My niece thought they were crayons.
Now onto beauty. There was an array of beauty brands such as Davinci Cosmetics, E.L.F, Maybelline, Victoria’s Secret, Avon, Coastal Scents and more.
There was one booth, Tres Belle Cosmetique that really focused on cosmetics and its tools. I loved the idea of the stackable eye-shadows that can also be mixed with the lip balm to create a lip colour. Really inventive!
 As for the hair well there were lots of professional grade products such as Vitale Pro, KeraSylk and Keyano Aromatics. But what really caught my attention was the hair show and how skilled these hair dressers were in creating such intricate hair designs. Take a look at this one that looks like a domino.
Overall I had a great time at this event. I of course came away with some goodies at great prices and will surely go again next year. How did you spend your weekend? Hope you have fun too!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
