Last weekend, we got the privilege to attend the American Beauty Show at McCormick Place. Wow! I have been to trade shows before but never one like this. There was thousands of beauty professionals in attendance learning about the latest trends in hair, nails, and spa.
We started our day in the press room where we were treated to a make up touch up by a professional. Lilly did a great job taking my make-up up a notch. I love having my make up done because it always makes me feel like a star. After loading up on a few goodies, we headed to the show floor. It was like Disneyland for beauty -holics and drag queens. Color was everywhere and the word of the day was BLING! Seeing the NYX make up , I had to buy some because it is after all, the make up used by RuPaul’s “girls” and they are gorgeous. All the reps were nice, except one who copped an attitude . Needless to say, I learned more about hair than I had known before. All I had to say was that I had thick , naturally curly, try to straighten hair, and the sales rep would head right to their product line and hook me up. It reminded me of going to a doctor and diagnosing my illness. We got some really cool products and cool bags like the one from the 12 benefits that is hot pink and has two outer mesh pockets. I could envision the bag being perfect for the summer that is to come. There was also some nice eye candy about in the form of male models. In my future write ups, I will using some of the products I received and then telling you if they tamed my wild mane . So stay tuned .
