One of my lucky girlfriends won a “BE Beautiful Party” at Bare Escentuals and it just so happened it was right on time for the launch of their new bareminerals READY eyeshadows. This new line has been getting so much buzz on Facebook and Twitter, I was anxious to try them out myself. The Bareminerals READY eyeshadow collection consists of solid mineral technology and is a huge innovation for the company. I was more curious about the product’s anti-aging benefits.
We arrived at the Bare Escentuals boutique inside the Fashion Show Mall here in Vegas around 6:30 pm last night, ready to play with makeup! We were greeted by the most charming BE makeup artist, shout out to Miss Carmel who had us all giggling!
My friend Gaby chose “The Honeymoon Phase” look which indeed gave her a sweet glow!
My favorite was Melanie’s look: Smoky Eye Ready. I might just try out “The Scenic Route” palette tonight!
Cheers to the weekend beautiful ladies!
In this city of Sin, there are countless events happening every week. However, most of them cater to 24-hour party goers and equal opportunity event hoppers. Needless to say, there are ample pickings of parties and soirees to choose from in this town. However, every once in a while, there’s an event that makes me want to read through the invite twice. Usually, a pretty invite with luxury brand names written across the masthead is an easy hook for me.
Invited by my friend and fashion blogger, Laura Coronado of Lollieshopping, the Fall Beauty Preview Party at Neiman Marcus was not to be missed. She co-hosted the event along with fellow fashionista, stylist and blogger Christie Moeller.
Upon entry into Neiman Marcus at the Fashion Show Mall, I was greeted by a hostess with the mostess, literally. She gave me a gift bag and a beauty card for a chance to win a beautiful beauty basket. With my pomegranate martini in hand, I was ready to go on my beauty station tour. I visited the Fragrance, Nail, Hair, Skincare and Color areas to discover and be introduced to Laura’s and Christie’s “favorite beauty picks.”
My favorite beauty pick of the night was the Chanel nail polish in Peridot, one of the new fabulous colors from their 2011 Autumn Collection.
While I consider myself an event veteran, having attended events for more than a decade now, I’ve come to appreciate those that impressively bring together a select group of people, a close-knit group of industry movers and shakers and Vegas insiders. Last night was one of those nights.
Cheers to the following ladies that came out to revel in all things beauty! Special thanks to Laura and Christie who made it all happen!

Greeting from Vegas! I think I may have already told you that I’m not loyal to one brand of makeup but do have a few key favorites! When it comes to mascara, I’ve tried hi-end brands and drugstore brands, lately opting for the latter. I delightfully surprised when I tried Mally Volumizing Mascara which I originally received in my Kindness is the New Black kit. Wow! I just have to show you the amazing results this mascara gave me. Best of all, no clumps! And in true Mally spirit, I shared one with my niece and now she loves it too! I’ll need to buy the duo again very soon! What do you think?
