Back From Cosmoprof North America 2013

This year, CosmoprofNA was the largest yet.  I have so much information to share with you from some of your favorite companies and some that I hope will be new favorites.

I want to apologize for not posting yet.  I've had yet another physical set back with food poisoning and I've been trying to recover for a couple days.  I promise I'll be back within the next day or two to start loading you up with pictures and information.  

In the meantime, be sure to check my Instagram for pictures from the greatest beauty show in North America.

I Have To Tell You About NYX Cosmetics Sex Bomb Eyeshadow Palette

There are so many cool things to tell you about from Cosmoprof North America 2013, as always. I've VERY excited!!! I know you will be too. If you've followed my Instagram, Twitter, or Tumblr accounts, you've seen a lot of sneak peeks from CosmoprofNA 2013.  If you're not following me, get on it!!!  :)  There's lots of sneak previews that you don't want to miss.

My prediction for the first sell-out of everything I saw at Cosmoprof?  This!!

NYX Cosmetics, Sex Bomb, Eyeshadow Palette, femme fatale, Cosmoprof North America

Sex Bomb, Sex Bomb, you're my Sex Bomb....that's the Tom Jones version but I love the NYX Cosmetics version even more. I predict a very quick sell-thru once this hits the shelves. And I want it bad, so if I have to fight you in my neck brace, I will. Or not, because I'd lose. But I want this bad.

Because this is just a preview post, I'm going to share more pictures from this palette and it's accompanying palette called Adorable will sell out as well.

So this was a quickie little post, and I hope you enjoy the picture!!

Dear Readers, Visitors, Companies and Supporters Of All Types....

I wanted to take a moment to tell you I haven't turned to dust I hopefully I'll be returning later this week. If you haven't read it on my Facebook or Instagram page yet, I had surgery a month ago. But let me back up just a little.

I was due to have surgery to fuse my neck in two places, (from a fall on the ice around a year and a half ago), in April. If you've been with me that long, you'll remember I had surgery on my legs and shoulder last year. I think it took me about three months until I could lift the laptop to blog.

Anyway, the doctor wanted me to get in the best shape I could before surgery so it seems I've messed up my knee and I'm in therapy for that. But before I could get to the surgery, I got pneumonia. SO...My surgery was put off three weeks, we had my son's high school graduation, and now I'm a month post surgery. Today, I am able to lift my laptop from the stand it's been sitting on. Hooray, progress!!!

I have three weeks of emails to catch up on and some things to write up for My Beauty Bunny. About the time I get back on track for you, I'll be attending Cosmoprof North America, a very exciting beauty show for beauty professionals and media personnel and I'll have tons of things to tell you about what I see there and am allowed to talk about from various exhibitors.

Speaking of Cosmoprof, I got this flyer in the mail this past week and was pretty excited by the picture on the inside cover. In the front row left and right are Lindsey from Neverland Nail Blog and Carly from Lacquered Lover. Behind them you can see Destany from Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom on the left. Directly behind Carly is Ria of Ria Loves Pawlish, and then the blondie on the right is Me! How fun it was to open the advertisement and see part of our group!!! You can read all kinds of posts I did about Cosmoprof 2012, mainly from July '12 thru September '12.

So I really wanted you to know I haven't forgotten you. I've missed talking to you. It's just been such a more difficult recovery than I thought. I figured it would be two weeks and then I'd just run around with my neck brace in my way. The truth is, it's a long surgery, I had a few complications, and in the meantime, I have ordered many things to tell you all about. I can't wait.

Here's a fun thing my friends did for me right after the surgery. The neck brace had this big ugly yellow circle in the middle and my friends Candice DeGraff and Tracy Skipworth said, "There is no way you're going to graduation looking like that!!!" So they came over and this is what they did:

I love these girls so much and I appreciate what they did in helping this crazy thing to look acceptable at graduation. And honestly, I have never had more positive comments on a piece of jewelry than I've had on this neck brace!!

So that's where I've been. I'm not leaving. I am way behind, but I am on my way back!!!

Cosmoprof North America Announces Boutique, A New Onsite Sampling Concept

As if Cosmoprof North America wasn't already a mind blowing experience, they are adding something new for the Las Vegas show in July 2013. I have a press release I want to share with you.


Las Vegas, NV (March 12, 2013) – Cosmoprof North America (CPNA) announcesBEAUTIQUE, an exciting new sampling concept that will be unveiled at the showthis July. Curated boxes featuring sample-sized beauty products delivered monthly to subscribers is one of today’s hottest trends with many online retailers offering variations on this concept. Cosmoprof North America is the first trade exhibition to bring customized sampling to show attendees.

All attendees are invited to visit the one-stop beauty shop, BEAUTIQUE, for deluxe-sized samples, including the latest in up-and-coming cosmetics, skin care, nails, hair...and some classic beauty favorites. Attendees will be able to hand-pick seven deluxe samples from 20 featured exhibiting brands for a nominal fee of $10. All proceeds collected will benefit CITY OF HOPE, a leading research, treatment and education center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.

The beauty sampling shop will be located on the main show floor and will be open throughout the entire show. Exhibitors participating in this program will benefit from enhanced visibility on the show floor as well as the opportunity to get their products in the hands of many buyers who they may not necessarily get the opportunity to meet with otherwise.

The list of participating brands will be announced in May. HCT Packaging, the official sponsor of BEAUTIQUE, will produce the exclusively customized box to hold all the beauty products.
