2011 New York Makeup Show Part 2 - Haul

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post!  I know you're super excited to see this one.  Today I'll be showing my video and pictures of my 2011 New York Makeup Show Haul.  I seriously had less than an hour to make all my purchases since I was working the Graftobian Booth all day.  I didn't get to visit a lot of booths - Inglot, Stila, Eve Pearl...even though I really wanted to.  I just didn't have time!  I'll make sure to get them the next time.  If you want to see what I picked up, make sure to check this one out!  Most of them are items that I consider must-haves.

Every year I save up for these makeup shows.  I take a little from each paycheck starting 6 months in advance so that I can have enough money for travel, food and of course most importantly makeup lol.  I try not to buy too much makeup throughout the year since I know I can get it all at once and at a deep discount at the show.  Here's what I got!

Parian Spirit
This is my favorite brush cleanser of all time, it's totally life changing.  I picked up the biggest bottle they had and it's huge!  My boyfriend laughed at me lol.  But I had been rationing the other size since last year's LA IMATS.  I think I spent around $20 to $25 on it and it's totally worth it.

I always use the Lait Creme moisturizer and Hydramatte on most of my clients.  I stocked up!  They were having a show special with two full size lait cremes and a travel one, I think it was for $40?  I think originally it would be around $64.  I also picked up the Hydramatte for $30 when it's originally $37.

I had to get another Preo Sectional Lash Curler.  It's a must have in my collection.  I was borrowing the one from my kit and needed one for myself!  Originally $25, they sold it for $20.

I got the complete set of Ruby and Olive Shades for $80.  It was a more than I wanted to spend but my other ones were getting old.  I just checked online and on www.camerareadycosmetics.com each trial pack is $31.99 each ...so I definitely over paid.  What's up with that!

OCC Makeup
I knew I wanted some of their dark red lip tars.  These tars are amazing for photoshoots when you need quick, vibrant color.  I wanted some of the deep reds for women of color rocking a pin-up look.  I actually ending up picking up all the colors I didn't have so now I have a complete collection!  I've twitpiced a few of these lip colors recently, gorgeous!  I also had to get my hands on their new OCC Tint - I'm apparently between shades Y3 and Y4.  This is a brand new product that debuted at the show.  Can't wait to show you all!

Kevyn Aucoin
The blushes were $5! I got all of them plus one shaping and sculpting powder as well as two for a friend.  I had to pick up the infamous brow pencil in Brunette (can't remember how much) and the Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX11 which is my color (originally $45 but was $20 at the show).  I'm so sad though, my brow pencil somehow got lost in traveling back, what a waste.

Okay I totally went overboard at this stand.  Honestly I kind of regret it.  What happened was that I only had about 30 minutes to shop and this stand was close-by and didn't have a long line.  I knew I need to pick up some gifts for friends and they conveniently had everything in a mini-set which I figured I could split up to make goody bags.  Boy, next time I'm not going to make the same mistake!  I spent $244.97 and this was after everything was 50% off.  Sure it was a good deal but I really went overboard.

I also picked up a boatload of Graftobian stuff...the products I used during my demo I got to keep.  I'm really excited about their new Brow palette, the 5 Pan Lipgloss palette, New Ultra Light Cream 5 Pan Foundation Palette, and the Cool blush palette because I didn't have those before.  And I picked up some extra awesome items to give away - this includes their HD Makeup DVD (total must watch for artists), corrector palettes and more!

What did you guys pick up at the show, let me know in the comments!
