Found some good goodies to share with you from the Makeup Show here in NY. Enjoy!

Bdellium eco-friendly make up brushes in pick. Made from bamboo and cute enough to add to any collection or start anew!


Green Bambu Series features eco-friendly makeup brushes with all sustainable bamboo handles and all vegan soft synthetic bristles and an anodized aluminum ferrule.

I have the green set but the yellow is calling my name like “Yoli you’re life is not complete without me!”

There is a particular personal bias for Young Blood Cosmetics because they are too kewel for makeup school. If you are not familiar with YBC, get familiar quickly. They are a natural, luxury brand that works for day to day and television/film. The issue that many makeup industry folks have/had with mineral makeups is that they weren’t hd enough for production work. Then YBC came along and changed the game.
The two new items in the above picture are their summer colors. I do not have the particulars BUT I promise to get them to you soon.


These lovely scents in a bottle is Minerals in the Mist (love the name) by YBC. You can use it for aromatherapeutic purposes or even to set you makeup.

Loveth this Mineral primer. It glides on like silk and from my first try, it didn’t dry my skin out. I will test out some more (hopefully soon) and report back. Yes ma’ams.

Here are some lip tar stained gloss by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. They are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. These particular colors launch only at the Makeup Show but will be available for sale May 23, 2013.

While I enjoy the concept and colors from OCC, I never know how to use their lips tars appropriately without looking like a clown. Soon enough, one of my gorgeous makeup friends will join me for a tutorial on how to use the lip tars so I don’t fall down the hole of Minajery.


Are there any new makeup lines/collections you’re digging? Well don’t hold out…Share!
