The Makeup Show LA: General Faire

I just went around with  my camera and snapped pictures of all the vendors. Special note for Inglot Cosmetics, which I am NOT familiar with. They had a HUGE display…. makeup overload! I was so overwhelmed that I ended up not buying anything:

And that’s just Inglot!

HAKUHODO BRUSHES:
If I had money to burn, I would ONLY use Hakuhodo Brushes. They’re THAT good.
Ya’ll know there are NOTHING like Make Up For Ever Eyeshadows:
The newest addition to the MUFE family: Uplight. Absolutely Divine!

A Little Lip Service from Kat Von D

Sugar Sugar put a bug in my ear to check out Kat Von D on my next trip to Sephora. WOW was I ever missing out on these lipsticks! I had to narrow my purchase down to two lippies, and I chose Adora (metallic red) and Prayer (deep matte rose):

I LOVE both of these lippies! Very highly pigmented… smooth and creamy. I can’t believe I waited so long to try them out…

For the most part I recommend these lipsticks… HOWEVER I did notice that some of the testers smelled REALLY old. So, I’d take a whiff of these puppies before you plunk down the $$ for them and end up with a dusty tube of lipstick. But if the freshness date checks out, I say go for it! I’m really impressed with the quality and pigmentation of these lipsticks.
