The Beauty Social 2011 by Beautylish Recap

The Beauty Social

This past weekend I was in Santa Monica for The Beauty Social from Beautylish. This event was all about getting people together to celebrate all kinds of beauty and hear from different celebrity makeup artists, experts, bloggers and vloggers.

I wasn’t too sure about going because I didn’t know anyone and it wasn’t local. But I decided to bite the bullet and I am SO glad I did! I met so many really cool bloggers and vloggers.

Some of the people I met were Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog (kind of funny I had to go to LA to meet her when she lives 45 minutes from me!), Patrice from Afrobella, Erika from Makeup Bag, Leesha from xSparkage on YouTube, JulieG from YouTube and Romy from Romy Raves. I met all sorts of other cool people as well from bloggers to those behind makeup brands (Jenny Frankel from CoverFX and Amy from Sugarpill) and Twitter accounts (Nils from Beautylish) and more!

New! Wet n Wild Coloricon Limited Edition Glitter Palettes for Holiday 2011Swatches, Photos & Review

Wet n Wild Glitter Kit

Wet n Wild keeps the holiday shimmer going with their new limited edition Coloricon Glitter Palettes.

There are four different palettes this holiday which are: Shimmer Station, Twinkle Town, Main Street Glitz and Tinsel Mall.

These are creamy glitter shadows so the texture is a bit different from what we have been seeing from them as of late. And as you will see, some worked and some…well didn’t.

The issue I seemed to have with a couple of these palettes was that there was SO much glitter sitting on top of the creme shadow, all I could get onto my finger was glitter. The glitter and creme didn’t seem to mix well together. The shadows felt very gritty and came out super patchy. But not all of them were like that so I’m not sure what the deal is. Maybe not enough quality assurance at the factory?
