This is my third year attending and each year I look forward to learning the new trends in beauty and what new products my favorite brands have. This year Beauty Live took it to another level by incorporating a workout session (nice idea). You can’t help but wonder what is going on as you’re walking though the mall and see a group of women in a yoga pose. Fun right?? On stage Lush brings their products to life by showing us how they mix their all natural ingredients to bring us the products we love like their bath bombs! Fellow blogger Alex of Small4Style and I had a quick chat on our favorite products and new products we can't wait to try.
Sponsored by Cadillac the event was dazzling with meet and greets, giveaways, live audience demonstrations and just a grand ole beautiful time! Each panel awards you a beauty filled gift bag with your reservation, not only that but you can also win prizes by just entering your name in the raffle box! I get so excited yet overwhelmed by alllllll of the products inside the gift bags that I will be trying soon! Around the premiere shopping center during this event you notice “beauty stops” this is where you get a one on one for specifics on the products showcased onstage. This year the participating stops included The Art of Shaving, Bath & Body Works, Belk, L’Occitane, Lululemon Athletica, Lush, Macy’, Nordstrom, Sephora, Teavana Tea Bar and Toni&Guy.
