The Beauty Board 2011

This was my first time at the annual "Beauty Board" event, put on by the lovely Stephanie Anne Daga. (Of BlushPretty). I attended the event with fellow blogger Anneke (of Rogue Beauty). We really weren't sure what to expect from the event, but we ended up having an amazing time!!!

Lots of brands (many Canadian, yea!!)  were in attendance. Brands like: Cheeky Monkey, Consonant, Avon/Mark, Vasanti, Revolution Organics, Covergirl, Olay, Secret, and Dalish.

Two companies that really stood out to me, were: Vasanti and Cheeky Monkey.

What I love about Vasanti Cosmetics, was that it had foundations and concealers to match women of ALL colours. Many lines seem to overlook women with darker skin colours, but not Vasanti. Another item I loved from there line were the lip glosses. They were super moisturizing!!!! I wanted all of them!!!
Plus, the two ladies working the Vasanti booth were super nice, and did a little makeup touch up for me....sadly I forgot to take a picture. The eye shadows however, seem to be made with a lot pigment!!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I don't like a wimpy shadow.....I like my shadows with a good punch of pigment!!! Vasanti did not disappoint!

Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics, was another brand that I just fell head-over-heels for. First off, the colour range is amazing! So many shades to fall fav's were "pop my cherry" and "hungover". I will post pictures of the colours once I get a manicure! I have a serious weakness for nail polish and "Cheeky Monkey" is my new addiction!!!

Another notable mention is this cheek tint from Revolution Organics. I want it so bad. It wasn't for sale at the show, but Stephanie from Blush Pretty sells it at her shop on Queen st.

What do you think of the Beauty Board event? Will I see you there next year?


  1. this was my 3rd bb event and i swear, it gets better every year. i was so happy that stella and dot were there but my wallet was not.
    i LOVE cheeky monkey cosmetics - such great colors! i bought 'hangover', 'you never go back' which is a gorgeous black color; changes you into instant rocker glam chick :)

    glad you liked the event; it's so much fun!

  2. I think we'll be going again next year for sure!
