The Makeup Show NYC 2016 Recap, Haul & Shenanigans

Here's a peek at what I bought at The Makeup Show NYC along with the goodies in my gift bag from the Blogger Preview. Oh, and some cool places to eat nearby in case you're planning a trip for next year!

Hey guys. It’s been so long and you’re probably wondering where in the world have I been. Well over the last few weeks I’ve been working on redecorating my apartment. It was a huge project that required a lot of time and attention shopping for what I wanted and putting things together, so I had to take a little break to get it done. If you follow me on Snapchat (glammzmore) you already know this as I’ve been sharing the process. If you don’t no worries as I’ll be sharing portions of my apartment makeover here soon, starting with my beauty corner. Anyway, The Makeup Show NYC was a few weekends ago and I attended the Blogger Preview Event the evening before to get a peek at some of the new products that would be featured at the show, along with a run down of the products included in our gift bags.

I ran into some of my blogger boos and met a few new ladies, and we decided to head to dinner after the event. We ate dinner at Burger & Lobster and grabbed some doughnuts from Dough for dessert. A great time was had and a few of the girls were from out of town, so I was glad that they were able to enjoy some of my favorite NYC spots.

Here’s a peek at the goodies that were included in this year’s gift bag at The Makeup Show NYC Blogger Preview. It was a nice assortment (per usual) and I’ll be sharing my thoughts on some of the products with you guys soon.

I went to The Makeup Show NYC on Sunday afternoon with my cousin Monique in search of the items on my extremely small list. I don’t really buy much anymore unless it’s to update my kit, or products that I use a lot and run out of often. Trust me when I say I have more than enough makeup with some to spare.

We left extremely happy because we were able to find everything that we wanted, with coins to spare for dinner after at Cafeteria lol.

This is one of our favorite spots and The Makeup Show and Cafeteria is an annual ritual that we excitedly look forward to. We both had the Crispy Calamari Salad (which was divine) and of course I had to have some Mac ‘n Cheese. I can’t go to Cafeteria and not have Mac ‘n Cheese. We also had these delicious Blueberry Mojitos.

I picked up an Inglot AMC Creme Eyeliner (my favorite eye liner) along with some lashes, a brush to contour my nose and an empty NARS Pro Palette to depot my NARS blushes. I  also ended up picking up a NARS Orgasm Illuminator as someone stole mine a few years back, and I love to mix it with my foundation. Stay tuned for some reviews.

  3. I just cut my locs of 16 years due to the strain, weight, stress of the length. I’ve always had what others called a fine grade meaning majority thin, but thicker texture in the middle. Not that I can it all off ( scissor cut low) my side are bald with batches. Will my hair ever grow there again? What do you recommend for growth?
