I attended Salon Melbourne last weekend which is a trade only event held every year in Melbourne. It is mainly Hair, Nail, Spa and Makeup brands from all over reaching out to students, salon and spa owners. I did go crazy with my purchases as this was the first time I attended and there were amazing discounts. I categorized my products into three for easy viewing. Makeup, Brushes and Skincare.
In the first category Makeup I bought five lipsticks from Gorgeous Cosmetics in Innocence, Bridgette, Woodberry, Inspiration and Sophisticated $25 for all 5. Lipsense in Roseberry $34. Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof lips in 10 Madgenta $20. Lime Crime lipsticks in Centrifuschia and Poisonberry $14 each. Gorgeous Cosmetics eyeshadow in Violet satin $17.50.
All the small eye and lip brushes I bought from Crown Brushes and the three face brushes I bought from Designer Makeup Tools. L-R DMT 116W-30,C139,C213,C323,C433, DMT 116D-24 and DMT 116D-53. The Crown brushes cost me $20 for all four. The Designer Makeup Tools brushes were $41 for all three.
I was really intrigued by this brand Clearglo and I love trying out different oils for my skin so I thought I would give this one a go. It also came with two samples of moisturisers and a glopaste which according to them gives the same effect as microdermabrasion without having to go through the painful treatment. Super excited to give that a go because I have tried Microdermabrasion once and it was too painful for my skin. Clearglo had a promotion where all of its full size products were only $19 that day so a Vitamin C oil for under $20 is not bad at all. I just hope it works well.
The Redken booth had a fun gaming machine and I won the Redken Shape Factor 22 in that. Yes, I am a pro with the claw machines ;-P
