Let me start by telling you that I experienced an amazing beauty show this past weekend, IBSNY. This event is the longest running, professionals-only, beauty show in the nation. WOW!
It was an awesome time. The crowd was very loud and energetic. I loved it and I’m still recuperating from all the shopping I did. I lost my mind! it was impossible not to loose it a bit. Besides breaking my wallet, I collected fabulous samples. Today I am going to pick three of my favorite samples and items I bought and going to talk a bit about it.
My favorite item overall was the Makeup Eraser. It was $23, and well worth every penny. It removes 100% of makeup with just warm water. No Chemicals. It’s machine washable. It won’t hold stains. Will remain soft and promotes healthy skin. Perfect for a beauty editor; I am constantly putting on and taking off makeup and beauty products. If you haven’t seen our demo and my video review, you could view here. To buy your own Makeup Eraser, click here.
Next on my list, House of European Hair. Their slogan is ‘Feel the Difference’. Well you can. There’s a world of difference between these extensions, than any other I saw at IBSNY. They were beyond soft. Like mink! That’s because their pieces are 100% Virgin Hair. Here’s more about the company:
Natural. Light. Soft.
House of European Hair is a full line of wigs, integrations, hairpieces and fringes using only the finest quality of virgin European hair. Whether you want a whole new look or just an enhancement, our premium quality allows for total customization without damaging your own hair.
When we say our hair is truly virgin, we mean it!
All of the hair used in our wigs and hairpieces are harvested ethically from Europe. Unlike other hair systems, all hair used in our wigs and hairpieces have been cut directly from ponytails of all textures and colors to offer a natural, full variety. Our hair has never been processed or colored, only cleansed and conditioned. The cuticles are left intact and facing the same to direction to maintain shine and texture wash after wash. What’s more? Hair in each piece was sourced from a single individual’s head to ensure a natural movement.
We know that your wig should make a statement as unique as your own personal style.
So go ahead… highlight, perm, straighten and style our wigs as you please! Create your own look. Add a little drama to your hair. HEH is all about ease of wear and customization.
These were some of the nicest and most attentive people at the show. They gave me two beautiful samples, a Remi HairArt clip extensions in blue and a hair scrunchy. My mouth dropped at how amazing these hair pieces are! Check the video they were nice enough to explained step by step.
My last, but certainly not least, item is Eye Kandy. I paid $30 for three shades, their Liquid Sugar, and brush. Here’s a bit about the company:
Eye Kandy offers the latest breakthrough in glitter cosmetics. Our revolutionary liquid adhesive base, Liquid Sugar, sets us apart from all other glitter cosmetics.

Because you apply the glitter and the base together, you can manipulate your application to a fine line for a more subtle look or a thicker, bolder line for a more dramatic or “night” look. Finally, a product that does exactly what it says it will! Say good-bye forever to pat-on, gels, flaky and messy eye glitters! Eye Kandy is the perfect no flaking, no mess, everyday cosmetic that you’ve been searching for.

The young lady at the booth put on a beautiful purple shade on my eyes. It’s a must get for a Beauty Editor has to have some sparkles! As a dancer, this product will come in handy on performance days.
