Earlier this month, I had the delightful pleasure of being invited to the COVERGIRL Beauty Bar, an event that was set-up especially for some celeb-style pampering in honor of the The MTV Movie Awards. How could I resist an afternoon of luxurious salon treatments, hanging out with some of my favorite bloggers, sipping Hpnotiq cocktails and getting makeovers with the newest COVERGIRL product offerings? Twist my arm 🙂
Upon arrival, my first stop was the uber cute purple Hpnotiq Harmonie lounge. It was all decked out in purple decor to match the violet color of Hpnotiq’s latest spirit-vodka infused with berries, violets, lavendar and Cognac. The room was filled with jars of all sorts of ecclectic purple candy, lavender cake pops and hot guys dressed in tight fitting purple t-shirts. I ordered the Harmonie Champagne cocktail topped off with a pretty little edible flower and relaxed in prepartion for my first treatment.
Even Karina Smirnoff, the smokin’ hot dancer from Dancing With The Stars, stopped in to indulge in all things purple
My day of pampering at the Beauty Bar began in the Wella Shampoo room, where I learned all about Wella’s new Brilliance and Enrich hair treatment collections. After my hair was washed, I got to experience Wella’s new Self Warming Conditioning Mask and I loved the subtle warming effect. Then one of the seasoned stylists from Nine Zero One Salon gave me a rockin’ blowdry (and I am rather picky about my blowdry’s, so that is saying alot.)
My next stop was definitely the highlight of the day, getting my make-up done with all latest COVERGIRL NatureLuxe Products by the amazingly talented down-to-earth celebrity make-up artist Amy Nadine (Amy is responsible for Lauren Conrad’s gorgeous red carpet looks ;-)) Amy created a stunning flawless look on me using NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara in Black (which will be available in July 2011), Intense ShadowBlast in Brown Bling (available July 2011), NatureLuxe Silk Foundation in Oak (LOVE the flawless lightweight natural looking finish!), LipPerfection Lipcolor in Kiss and NatureLuxe Gloss Balm in Marble. Checkout Amy giving me the full on star make-up treatment-and of course I am soaking it all in with the gorgeous Amber of Beauty Junkies Unite
Amy was such a doll, an amazing artist and I couldn’t get over how natural yet enhanced my features looked. It was such a treat having Amy’s skillful hands prep my face. Her artistry combined with the affordable and high quality CG products was a winning combo! Here’s my finished look (with Beauty Junkies), what do you think?
I wrapped up this fabulously indulgent day with a customized spray tan by Fake Bake which left me with a beautiful golden bronze. I looked like I had just returned from a tropical vacay! And each guest got to leave with Fake Bake Flawless, a full proof at home bronzer with a professional buffing mitt to ensure a ‘Flawless’ finish. Here I am aftering bronzing with my bloggin’ soul sista Andrea of Savvy Sassy Moms
*Disclosure: COVERGIRL invited me to this event to learn all about their newest products and to enjoy a day of pampering salon treatments and product gifting. Nothing was expected of me, but I had such a fabulous time and tried some great products that I just had to share them with you!
