Weekend Re-cap in Pictures

After arriving in NY and seeing what we could while Staples hopping (don't ask), we finally got to our hotel and settled in. The ladies had to get ready!

Nikkia/Silver Lips rocking her new cut and Victoria lipstick from MAC's new Color Forecast collection. She also added some corner half lashes!

YANNIZE/AmmoMag! The queen of NY! When I make my 5 minute trips to NY (that's what it feels like!), she's always the perfect ambassador, making sure we have a blast. Here she is in her Victorian lipstick too! *Hmmm mentally adds that to the to-buy list*

Me! Yannize suggested I use the Color Forecast crushed pigments in the neutrals/golds. I used a bright gold one on the lid. It made a pretty foiled gold look. Sorry, I don't have other close ups with detail. I used NYX lashes #144 (crazy drama) and popped some Fashion Fair blush in Golden Sunset on the cheeks.

We hit the town to head to the NYFW Media Mixer!

Mischo Beauty, Silver Lips and her hair in action!

After the soiree and making stops in between, we(me, Silver Lips, the Informed Make-up Mave and Kare, the Make-up Diva decided to make our after party at the Inglot cosmetic store. It stays open until 12am!!
With their Freedom system (choosing your palette of 2, 5 or 10 in square shadows or circle, blush, lipstick, you name it, you have a choice!) I made a 5 shadow palette ($30)
Pigmented shadows, sleek magnetic packaging... sweet!
I topped off my trip with a stop at Texas BBQ (one of my fave local eats in Ny!) The Blue Hawaiian frozen margarita was dreamy! Yum!
And for the love in me on VDay, I went to see Valentine's Day the movie=adorable!
