Finally a beauty related post! I tagged along to the Revlon and Almay beauty event hosted by London Drugs a few weeks back. It was actually a bit intimidating being in a room full of media PR types who all appear to know each other so I was glad to have Sheila and Michelle to huddle with.
This event is apparently one of the first of its kind! For some reason beauty brands tend to neglect those of us on the West Coast. We're vain too! Come market to us!! xD
Up and coming products from Revlon and Almay were showcased, including the highly anticipated Revlon Lip Butters and their new Photoready mousse foundation.
Of course I immediately bee-lined towards the nail polish table. They were giving out free manicures! Sadly I still had my gel nails on or I would have jumped at the opportunity!
The new Revlon Colorstay polish collection
Oh hullo dusty green colour on the right, you are so coming home with me when I see you!
The Revlon Lip Butter, the product we have all been lusting for, has finally arrived in Canada! Look at the huge range of colours!
These babies are so amazingly pigmented!!!
and so shiny too @.@
New Almay Intense i-color palettes:

Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow palettes! I've spotted these at Shoppers Drugmart and London Drugs already!
Revlon Colorstay palette in action:
I swatched the blue+green palette and it didn't really impress me. The colours were far too chalky :( I hope the rest of the line is not like this?
Latest additions to the Revlon Photoready line! It includes a concealer, a mousse foundation and a contour and blush palette.
I was really excited about these Revlon Photoready Airbrush mousses, I'm hoping to pick one up when they arrive at my local pharmacies
I've never encountered a foundation like the Photoready Airbrush mousse. The texture is really light, coverage is light to light medium, and it has a satin finish.
Celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak was there to provide a *very* healthy dose of testosterone and much appreciated yummies.
A man who can cook. He claims to be single too!
Pan seared scallops <3
As always, I include photos of Sheila stuffing her face xD
Michelle + Sheila
Look! you too can get nails to match your bag!
I shall never be a food critic. This was some kind of cheese cracker thing with a sliver of rolled rare beef on top.
Some kind of potato cake thing with a chunk of mozzarella(?)
Dessert!! a profiterole!
Lemon meringue slice:
Chocolate mousse and macarons. I might have stuffed my bag with the latter D:
I leave you with this:
