The Madness of a Cosmetic Show…The Animals People have become!!

This weekend was a Complete Success!! I ACTUALLY got everything squeezed in, especially the Nordstrom Trend Cosmetic Show. I didn’t know what to suspect because I’ve never gone to one of these but the insanity that ensued was unbelievable. I don’t usually talk about make-up on my blog because I’m a very simple make-up girl. Eyeliner, eye-shadow variations light & dark, some liquid foundation, & some blush that I get at CVS like Maybeline, Revlon, or L’Oreal. I think it’s time tho to step up into the big leagues.

The world of Dior, SmashBox, MAC, Chanel, and others were right at my fingertips. I got to the Garden State Plaza in New Jersey at 7am this Saturday morning. There was a few ladies there at first but then the line grew & grew. The doors opened at 8am & the fun began. We got a seat in the front row atop of which was a free Nordstrom bag with a leopard interior. Oh yeah…My main goal was free stuff I’m not ashamed to say. We all got to our seats & then the announcers came  out.

Sometimes guys say, “Why do you have so many blushes & eye-shadows?”. Well because they are all different that’s why. We saw beautiful models all done up & company representatives showed us their products. Lancome, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Clarisonic, Laura Mercier, Dior & many others had models to show the latest trends. I think I’m describing things too much, let me show you in pics. =)

It was about an hour long & it was so awesome. At some point tho they were giving out free samples and the women went wild. It was kinda scary actually how they were clawing at the bag of stuff trying to get something. I stared with my eyes and mouth wide open. Some greedy woman was handed almost all the free stuff because I guess she was just in that one lucky spot, but then they started pulling names to get the stuff. That one woman got 4 free things in a room of at least a 100 women. It was sad I think how greedy she was. She was throwing her arms in the air for more. Oh well.

 The last part of the day I got a Dior Make-over. I’ve never had a true make-up  makeover, or even used Dior make-up. Instantly I got tell the difference. I will say tho I did have an allergic reaction to the Make-up Remover from them. The skin near the corner of my eye was red. She used this spray on foundation called “Air Flash” &  then did a smokey eye on me. It felt so nice to be pampered after the stressful week. Oh, I loved it!

It rocked so much! I got tons of things to do this week on this blog! Stay Tuned for more!!
