Ofra Absolute Cover Silk Peptide Foundation

This foundation comes in a glass bottle with a pump for dispensing the formula: I received one of the fairer shades to try out, naturally!: This foundation has great coverage; it’s well pigmented. It applies …

Ofra Pro Palette

I brought more makeup with me on my trip to Florida last month than I needed. I should have known better, especially since I was going to The Makeup Show Orlando! Sure enough, among the many things that came home with me (self control is not defined in my world, apparently) was the beautiful, magnetic Ofra Pro …

At The Makeup Show Orlando, Stila had some amazing deals for show attendees. The booth was always packed whenever I walked by! My friend Cat picked up some lippies, and I chatted for a bit with one of the sales reps about the brand and what it was showcasing at the show (I wrote about …

Ofra Derma Tones Magic Concealer Roulette

Don’t you know, right when I get a new concealer palette, my face decided to mutiny and I broke out with multiple zits right at the start of my recent Florida vacation?! I mean, I was excited, because I could really put the concealer to the test. But who WANTS a zit. Or three?! I …

Elessa Jade Sweet Temptations Brushes

Yesterday I wrote about the beauty blogger panel at The Makeup Show Orlando, which included Elessa Jade from Pursebuzz. While she was recognized as a blogger – and the first YouTube beauty vlogger – Elessa was also representing herself with a booth at the show!

Bleeding Heart – a new brand on the block

New brand on the block Bleeding Heart is a little bit of goth and English countryside, all rolled into one. Bleeding Heart debuted at The Makeup Show New York City in May, and I learned more about the brand at The Makeup Show Orlando last week! Based in Los Angeles, the company produces makeup that it promises are cruelty, paraben, allergen …

Franken-Polish is coming to Amerikan Body Art!

When I saw the above sign at the Amerikan Body Art booth at The Makeup Show Orlando, it was all over…I’d found one of my favorite booths of the show. Franken-Polish? YES, please! Franken-Polish starts with some of that suspension base that you see in the maple syrup-like and old school soda-like bottles above. Then there’s a selection …

Ofra Vitamin C Bronzer

So here I am, in Florida. The Sunshine State. I left the increasingly cold South Jersey area behind to visit my best friend and check out The Makeup Show Orlando. Meanwhile, I’m white as a ghost and haven’t seen a beach or pool since August. It’s not quite warm enough to lay by the pool, sunning …
