ACI Beauty Event Spring/Summer 2014 Preview (Picture Heavy!)

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Spring/Summer preview for Stila, Cargo Cosmetics, Ceramic Glaze, Seche, Anna Sui and Ardell Lashes held at the beautiful Rosewood Hotel Georgia. This hotel is serious stuff guys and is one of the most luxurious places to stay in Vancouver. The event showcased some amazing products and really got me excited to share them all with you!

The moment I saw this Stila CC Cream ($57.00) in action, I knew it had to be mine. There are 6 different shades, but what is so cool is that the cream starts off green and as you rub, it changes to flesh-coloured to match YOU. I have already picked mine up from Shoppers Drug Mart. I had to have it!

Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow ($42.00), Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner ($26.00), Stay all Day Vinyl Lip Gloss ($32.00) and Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow Applicator ($24.00).  I have already picked up one of the lip glosses in Nude and I cannot believe how the colour stays in place while looking so glossy!

I had the Ardell “Curvy” lashes placed on me and I really loved how they looked even though this was the VERY FIRST time I had ever tried false lashes. I should give them another try on my own because they looked so natural!

I just love the revamped packaging of the Cargo Pressed Powder Foundation ($34.00)!

The Limited Edition “Suited to a Tea” Palette ($46.00) is a cream eye shadow palette which I don’t think I have ever seen before!

Bring on the nail polish! The new Ceramic Glaze line has some awesome brights and feathered polishes that are going to be crazy fun to play with.

This is the first time I have even been in proximity to a Seche polish and the upcoming collection is filled with pastels and what I consider to be very “ladylike” shades. Perfect for nail art and just a straight up manicure.

I had such a great time meeting up with everyone and meeting Gerry and Jenn for the first time! The event was low key, fun and was a wonderful way of getting to know the upcoming new releases from some stellar brands. I have a lot of stuff to share with all of you over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!
