“For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.
When worn alone, the CND Colour & Effects Collection #536 Eclectic Purple is a cute glossy bubblegum purple.
One of the biggest highlights during my trip to Cosmoprof is meeting Jan Arnold, the co-founder and style director of CND and getting a taste of their upcoming Colour & Effects collection.
If you are a sucker for cute packaging, you must keep an eye on the upcoming collections from some of these big nail companies!
Orly’s Once Upon A Time Fall 2009 Collection comes in great colors with names like Prince Charming, Poison Apple, Happily Ever After etc. and cute fairy tale themed charms on the bottles.
Thanks to L’oreal Paris, I got to catch Beyonce at her I Am… Concert and go backstage for a “Meet and Greet” with the icon herself.
When I finally got escorted through the maze-like backstage to the meeting room, my jaw literally dropped – Beyonce is totally gorgeous and a gazillion times prettier and skinnier in person! She wore neutral colors on the eyes, winged-out black liner with fake lashes and her skin just glowed and looked so flawless!!!
She said “Hi, very nice to meet you” in a super friendly manner while shaking my hand, and I was just so starstruck I blurted out how it was such a pleasure to meet her and that her lashes were totally to die for. In return, she said she liked mine *lol*
Due to security reasons, no one was to bring in any of their belongings (including cameras *sob*) but I did get pictures snapped with her which I will post once I get them from my contact.
The concert was amazing (we all know that girl can sing and dance!) and below are some pictures:
