This past weekend I headed down to San Diego for the BBC mixer presented by Elessa Vovan of Pursebuzz.
That Saturday morning I, along with many other bloggers and makeup artist took a marketing class that Elessa taught and also a Contracts class presented by Koren Zander from EnkoreMakeup. Both classes gave very valuable information and the ins and outs that they don't teach on beauty school.
I met up with MUA Lisa Nunez ( and we went together), she is such a sweetie and a joy to be around.
She also did my makeup for the event ( I loved it ).
Once the event started I got to finally meet so many people I always talk to on twitter, and some Gurus I watch on YouTube that I have never met...Mike, The Sublime Agent, Andrea of Andreaschoice, Jarmaine of JLOVESMAC1, Anne for Yummiebitez, Rae of RAEview, and the infamous BAD GIRL Enkorrine. I also got a chance to finally meet in person Robyn from Purely Cosmetics, Maxine from Vanity Girl Hollywood, Liz from Lash Royalty , all amazing ladies.
I finally got a chance to talk to Suzy ( MacNC40), Lauren ( QueenofBlending), Jasmine ( Jazziebabycakes), and MUA Grace Chun.
They had so many thing to offer, and it was free to all who attended, hand massages, various facial treatments, body massages, nail painting, shampoo and style, as well as makeup, lash bar and much more.
Everyone got a goodie bag with amazing products, some received amazing items from VioletVoss, they also had awesome giveaways. Cant forget all the Yummy Cupcakes made by Dave :)
Melissa owner of Little Diva Tutu's made a few of us these absolutely gorgeous Pink tutu's, the pictures are below in previous post, Please check her site out, she sells amazing for Divas of ALL sizes, Click on her link http://www.littledivatutus.com/
I also got a chance to meet some really amazing people, it was such a fabulous time for everyone who attended.
Best part was after the event, I got to have dinner with Enkore, Robyn, Grace Chun, Lisa Nunez, Crystal Strayer and her husband, and Nina ( neeners) and Dave the cupcake man :) ( Best cupcakes ever ).
At dinner Koren gave all of us a sneak peak of his new brush set collab with crown brushes, we all got to check them out and feel them and play, they are amazing Mac dupes, and super affordable, and they are gonna be released today on the Crown Brush website.
Thank you so much Elessa & Koren you are both amazing people!

Top: Cloud Coverage - Matte White, Dazzle Me - Light beige sheen w silver shimmer, Boyfriend Sweater-Grey brown shimmer. Bottom Row - Chocoholic - Brown Copper , Urban Trash - Matte Black
I have been a Glamour Doll Eyes customer for a while now. I have seen Vanessa's business sky rocket since she started in 2008, all from word of mouth, happy customers', reviews, etc. She also listens to her customers and lets them help her in choosing names for new colors which everyone seems to like and want to help out , and she listens to customer feedback to improve her business!
The shadows are very pigmented and smooth in texture, and can be used wet or dry. I prefer them wet.
I chose this palette because it is very neutral but can take you from day to night.
Glamour Doll Eyes also gives customer appreciation sales a few times a year, which is when I usually stock up on new colors.
The shipping is very fast too; when she first started, shipping was a little slow, but she has improved her turn around so much, which is awesome!!
I am loving the New GDE Brochures, and they even have a tutorial inside to help those who are not too familiar with makeup create a great look...I think the brochures are nice touch to give customers, very cool!
The Yulia shadow tower is $17.50, but you get 5 full size shadows, and there are many other towers to choose from.

Just to give you all a heads up on a great deal I found over the weekend at Costco!!
Frederic Fekkai shampoo and conditioner with a mini hair glaze for $29.99 , yes that is right, $29.99.
What a deal that is, because the shampoo and condition retail for $23.00 each.
They have 3 different formulations to choose from, so hurry and go check it out, before they are all gone.
These are the older packaging; that is why they are selling these as a bundle so cheap. Same great formula though and size is the same as well.

|Cute eye catching packaging|
|very sheer in color|
I chose Hibiscus, which is the darker color in the pink shades, and for me it is really light in color when applied. I think I will exchange this for a darker shade..
They come in 3 color categories: Nude, Pink, Red and they have two colors in each, a lighter and darker shade. Hibiscus is the darker shade in the pink category.
These are 100% Natural, and they do feel moisturizing on my lips.
These cost $6.99 at most places I have seen them, Target, Rite-Aid, etc.
If you are looking for a new a new lip balm you may want to check these out, but I think they are a bit overpriced.

|Comes in this adorable little box w a bow|
I really like this lip scrub. It exfoliates very well and leaves my lips feeling soft and smooth.
Just a little dab on your finger, rub in circular motions, wipe away ( you might get the urge to lick it off because the taste is so yummy), and Voila!: super smooth and soft lips.
Especially with this crazy winter, we are all having, this is a must have. I know everyone is probably having a problem with dry lips.
I know there are many lip exfoliators on the market. I have tried a few and ended up returning them because I didn't like them. I have also made my own at home but I don't like the mess that comes along with making your own.
I have heard about Sara Happ products for over a year now and was always curious to try her products.
I am glad I finally had the opportunity to do so. I love this scrub. I am just sorry I waited so long to try it.
Ingredients: • Sucrose • Petrolatum • Molasses • Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil • Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil
The cost on this lip scrub is $24.00, and I know that may seem high, but it is a great product and I know the price is very comparible to many on the market.
I will be purchasing the Sara Happ Lip slip in the near future, I heard they go hand in hand.
You can buy this product by clicking the link: http://www.b-glowing.com/sara-happ/

|Sorry about flash, but just showing packaging|
|Glam Slam duo|
|Love this color combination|
|Used Beauty Secrets Top Coat|
I came across this Serena Glam Slam duo last week on Amazon, which in most stores is sold out by now too.
Wasn't sure If I would like Simply Smash-ing from looking at the site. Turns out I love it, these look so good together. I did in the meantime get my hands on the China Glaze Crackle collection, and I must say, I prefer Black Shatter over China Glaze..
The texture feels different and it seems to work better for me.
I believe I paid $16.50 for this duo, and If your lucky enough to come across it, I would say snatch it up, before It sells high on Ebay.
