Sooooo, have you read my recap of this year's Makeup Show NYC? Are you curious about the brands that were present, products that were sold, and discounts that were offered? Then this post is for you! I've listed (and included photos) of ALL the products I purchased at the show, as well as the exact price I paid for each item. At the end of the post, I'll reveal which purchase I felt was my best buy!
Some of the discounts I took advantage of included items from NARS (I had been dying to finally get my hands on their blush in Taj Mahal plus been in love with their tinted moisturizer "Seychelles" ever since I received a sample from Bloomingdales a few weeks ago...great match for my complexion). Kevyn Aucoin was also offering a good discount on their Sensual Skin Enhancer ... got a couple for my kit.
