EVENT - Toronto Glossy Party

by - December 05, 2012

Glossybox had it's first Toronto party yesterday and I was fortunate enough to attend. The set up was gorgeous and very Glossy. There were stations and displays from different brands to showcase their special products. The brands at the Glossy Party were: Marc Anthony, OPI, Marcelle and Annabelle, Jouviance, GlamGlow, Elin Bianco, Vitabath, Macadamia, getgreatskin.ca, Maskeraide, BeautySoClean and Nyx Cosmetics. 

Marc Anthony had a bun, braid and knit bar for free, so I went to the braid bar and got a fishtail braid and then to the knit bar to get the shimmery brown strand weaved into my hair. I asked the stylist how much the knit would be and she said that they charge $30 and that does not include the braid, yikes! The yarn adds a nice touch to your hair and would look really nice for formal events (totally wish I did this for prom). If your hair tangles easily though, I don't recommend it. It took me about 10 minuted to undo my hair because the string was knotted and weaved throughout the braid.
OPI had two nail bars where you could paint your own nails which was really nice. I passed on this because I'm such a messy nail painter and it takes me forever! 
Marcelle and Annabelle had a really nice display featuring their BB creams, lip crayons and eye shadows. I've been meaning to get an Annabelle lip crayon and now I have one! They are super nice and go on sheer, but the colour is buildable. While talking to the rep, I learned that Marcelle is introducing a BB cream concealer in late January. I LOVE Marcelle's BB cream, which I'm currently using, and find it the best current drug store cream for combination/oily skin, so I can't wait to get my hands on the concealer. Plus, the concealer has a roller ball applicator which will be easy to use and good on the go!
Jouviance was showcasing their skincare products as well as their BB cream and foundation. Jouviance is really good for basically all skin types that need some sort of healing such as scarring. Their creams are especially recommended by plastic surgeons and dermatologists.

GlamGlow had a station to showcase their infamous product, the Youth-Mud Tinglefoliate Treatment. I LOVE this mask! I received in an earlier Glymm box and fell in love instantly with the product but not the price tag. This mud mask tingles when you put it on, then when it dries it becomes an exfoliator with a bit of water.

Elin Bianco combines the glamorous look of cosmetics with the power of hair products. These elegant looking hair products not only look great, they smell great and do wonders to your hair. Elin Bianco combines 6 different oils, such as argan and tea tree, to give your hair some nourishment and is sulfate and paraben free. It also has a fantastic smell (smells like baby powder to me) that will stay in your hair for 24-48 hours. Here they have a shampoo, treatment mask, hair perfume and I believe a hair serum.
Vitabath wants you to bring the spa home with their bath products and newly added fragrance mists. The Vitabath station gave out hand cream samples and let guests try their fresh smelling sugar scrub.
getgreatskin.ca had a cute station. I didn't linger here as it was in a corner beside the candy bar so it was quite cramped. I believe they were doing some microdermabrasion demonstration with a machine.
Macadamia Natural Hair had the least impressive display for me. They gave out macadamia nuts and briefly spoke about how their products contain argan and macadamia oils.

MaskerAide displayed their collection of masks. Each of these masks have a different specialty for use and should be put on in the morning for 10-20 minutes, so make sure you have some time to spare!

BeautySoClean showcased their brush cleansers as well as their cosmetic sanitizer wipes. I was going to buy a brush cleaning spray from Sephora, but I like these sprays a lot more. Why? BECAUSE THEY'RE SCETNED! And this holiday they are featuring two: Gingerbread and Candy Cane (yay! I love mint!)
NYX Cosmetics had a station where you could get a makeover or just a touch up by the makeup artists using the Dark Shadows palette.
And lastly, the Glossy Goody Bag!
What I came home with :)

I will be uploading a post with all the goodies I received on the weekend, so stay tuned!
