Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (O.C.C) -
This was my first time trying any products from O.C.C. I've heard great reviews about it and there Lip Tars really caught my eye especially there NEW color 'Beta' which is a neon orange (new trend).
I really like the texture of this product, however, it can be messy especially if you apply it incorrectly. You should apply it with a lip/disposable brush and NOT FROM THE TUBE TO THE LIPS. Pics of the tube below.
Alcone - http://www.alconeco.com/
I really like this company! It's like one big candy store that carries many different goodies...just like Sephora. I really wanted to check them out for 3 things: Makeup Remover Wipes, Brush Cleaner and Skindinavia. I was excited cause Skindinavia representatives were there but by the time I got to there booth it was at the end of the day. Skindinavia has great mists that helps reduce fine lines, anti-aging, no sweat, etc. I didn't get to buy it, but I got to buy the other 2 on my list...
|Cinema Secret Brush Cleaner 32 fl. oz.|
Eve Pearl and team uses this brush cleaner and I noticed how fast it drys the brushes. It even has a nice scent so once the brushes dry it smells good.
|Alcone Make-Off Wipes|
I got a chance to try these wipes last year and really liked it. I have sensitive skin but when I use these wipes it doesn't leave an irritation feeling.

|My 2 FAVORITE COLORS - Purple & Blue!!!!|
|Mineral Pressed Eye Shadow 'Riverside Purple Sky' (no base applied)|
|NO BASE APPLIED|
|Mineral Pressed Eye Shadow 'Harlem Night Sapphire'|

I love DEX New York. When I first got into makeup and didn't know any specific brands out there except MAC, I came across this website. I liked the fact that they provide classes to teach or advance your skills. I got the honor to meet and chat with the Vice President at the show and he was such a sweet man. Throughout the show, I told him that I wanted these eye shadows and to please hold it for me. On the last day of the show he sure did.

NOW on to the FREE Stuff - - - - - -
After the show finished we all had to stay and help pack and clean up. After completion, I was ready to go home and walked by O.C.C on my way out when I was told by a staff member (OCC) that I can take what I like. These products were used for samples, but it's OK nothing that can't be disinfected and cleaned, haha.

Beauty So Clean - http://www.beautysoclean.com/
|Brush cleaner (bottle) and Disinfect wipes|
This is the PERFECT tool to have!!! Before leaving on the last day of the show, I swung by Beauty So Clean booth and met Nancy. She was so nice and told me that she was completely sold out and gave me her samples free. The wipes are perfect to clean and disinfect lipsticks. She also sells this in a bottle size to disinfect powder, cream and lipstick as well. The bottle is a brush cleaner. These products can be purchased at Alcone, Eve Pearl and other locations (check website).
Myrabelle Mascara Shield -
I have never heard or seen this prior to the show but now that I have - it's a major asset for your kit if you're a makeup artist or not!!!! Myrabelle was stationed next to Eve Pearl so this cute lady approached me asking what she can used for her skin. As I finished helping her she pulled this out and gave it to me. She was so sweet explaining to me how to use it. Once I got home, I began to play with it and OMG....sorry if this may gross you out (look below)
So you can use this tool to pull down on your lower lash line and apply mascara and eyeliner onto your waterline.
Repeat the same steps for your upper lash line and water line.
|disposable mascara wand and small lash fan brush|
The mascara shield is best to use for avoiding smearing onto your face and makeup after applying mascara. Make sure to always clean it before reusing.
After a few attempts applying mascara, I tried using my favorite tools (above) to apply. I love using the fan brush for my lower lashes. It also works nicely for your upper lashes but I must practice a bit more, lol (plus after wiping and applying over and over I was getting bitchy! lol). Therefore, I took my disposable wand and bent it a bit - below....
