New Discoveries at The Caribbean Nail and Beauty Tradeshow 2012

I love making new discoveries especially when it comes to makeup and nail art! That was exactly what I encountered this year at The Caribbean Nail and Beauty Trade Show 2012. Let's start off with the nail supplies :)


As soon as you entered the space there was a crowded room with more traders than I remember seeing last year and of course super happy ladies buzzing around each and every booth. The first set of booths were nail supplies so I couldn't be happier. There were tons of acrylic products, gel polishes and uv dryers, and nail art supplies galore. You named it, you probably could find it. 



The Nail Inn was extremely popular. I could barely squeeze myself in to see all the lovely nail supplies. My favourite were the feathers for the nails.
Now onto some regulars at the show. I've meet them here last year as well and I always look out for them. The T&T Salon Supplies also has a host of nail supplies. I love their prices on their China Glaze products


Now for the makeup fans, also making a reappearance at the show was Tres Belle Cosmetique. I always get a warm welcome from their staff and their booth this year was definitely eye catching. I'm a huge fan of the DaVinci Cosmetics shimmer shadows.



Now for the newcomers (at least to me :) brands. Let me first introduce you to the mineral cosmetics line of Bella Terra. It is made in the USA and distributed locally by Ansura Wholesalers. From what I saw in the demonstrations you get a flawless coverage with their mineral foundations. I was so impressed I got my mom to test out her shade for me. I'll let you know how she feels about it after a few weeks of wear but so far so good.



Ansura Wholesalers also distributes CHI, Farouk and BioSilk products!


Another newbie to me was Flori Roberts Cosmetics distributed by Loubon Marketing and Distribution. It's another line made in the USA. I thought the lipgloss packaging was indeed interesting.




I really enjoyed my second year at the CNBTS. My old favourites and new discoveries made it worthwhile.

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!
