From The Ridiculous To The Sublime At The Makeup Show In New Yor

May 21, 2008 by SheFindsBecky

For the past three years, The Makeup Show has brought together the makeup artist industry in New York for two days of seminars, demonstrations, and exhibits. As a pro-only trade event for everyone from fashion stylists to retail aestheticians to the Hollywood makeup artists responsible for turning actors into aliens, the show covers a lot of ground. Big brands use the opportunity to showcase and demo new products, up-and-comers try to get a foothold in the industry, and there are always a few quirky products on their debut tour.

One of my favorite lines, Becca, was there, showing off their spring Paradise Lost collection. It includes beautiful creamy pinks for cheeks and lips, but I gravitated towards their new Eye Tint in Gilt ($24). A cream to powder formula, it's easy to apply, blends well, and adds a touch of shimmery glamour that's perfect for summer. You can check out the Paradise Lost collection at becca.com.

My pick for a promising new product is Seikisho's new Exfoliating Massage Gel ($28). It contains tiny scrub particles and heats up on contact with skin. As you massage it into your skin, the black gel turns gray, letting you know the exfoliating action is complete. 

But as Thomas Paine said, the ridiculous and the sublime are so very nearly related… and I found the Myrabelle Mascara Shield a bit ridiculous. It's a molded piece of pink plastic with a handle like a razor, but the end is curved and looks a little like a dolphin's tail. You use it to keep mascara off your eyelid (or your cheek) by slipping the curve along the lash line and pulling back. Your lashes fold flat against the plastic, you apply the mascara, and wipe the Mascara Shield clean. It looks strange, and while contact lens wearers are probably used to pulling back their eyelids, I thought it felt strange as well. But maybe I'm just old fashioned. What do you think? Tell us in the comments section.

While it's not available for purchase online, you can check it out (and order one for $10 via snail mail if you like) at myrabellemascarashield.com. Or you could just buy some smudge-proof mascara – but that may be too boring for you adventurous types.
