A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to attend the International Hair and Beauty Show – May 20 & May 21, 2012. IHS is a yearly hair, skin, and beauty trade event that show cases some of the worlds best and newest beauty trends and upcoming products. The trade show floor was filled with thousands of products from different company’s from all around the country. I had the pleasure of sampling and reviewing products before they are introduced to the market. As I walked around I was bombarded with samples of hair moisturizers, cremes, potions and much more. It was so much Fun! I wasn’t sure if I would have room to take everything home with me. I later realized I didn’t have enough room in my bags so I had to make a couple trips to the car to unpack my goodies! Any who, as I was making my way from vendor to vendor I came across a jewel, Literally. I glanced at a table full of opulence and glamour. The display was by far the best I’ve seen and I was truly impressed. As I walked over to the display table I was greeted by the company’s owner Malaika Rubin. She was gracious, professional, and able to answer all of my many questions. Her product line is called The Bling Collection from the House Of Simone.
The Bling Collection is a full-line of cosmetics that marries the unique concept of jewelry with make-up. The line represents top quality products in lighted and “blinged”casing for makeup and accessories. Her line features Refillable jewel encrusted compacts, LED Lighted Lipsticks, Jewel encrusted Kabuki brushes, and LED lighted nail polish. While talking to Malaika I learned:
- The Bling Collection from The House of Simone is animal friendly and conducts no animal testing.
- Each individual jewel is placed by hand, no machines are used.
- The Bling Collection from The House of Simone believes in giving back and will donate a portion of its proceeds to various charities. Partial proceeds will benefit: Women, Children, Animals, Veterans and Environmental charities.
While glancing at the beautiful products is was extremely hard to handpick which product I wanted to try. So I decided to test out one of the lip glosses. I went with one of the top sailing shades called Baby Love. Its a pastel pink and once applied it wears sheer with a touch of shimmer. Since I began wearing this gloss I’ve gotten so many wonderful complements on the shade, and once I show off the casing to the product I get so many questions on where this product can be purchased. I will give all the detailed information regarding how to get your hands on this fabulous product. Some of the highlighted features of the lipgoss:
- The jewel encrusted crystals
- The built in LED light and mirror
- Paraben Free
- Press button on top of cap to turn LED light on and off.
This brand is designed for the woman who loves a little SPARKLE in her life. If your that girl and would love to get your hands on any of these conversation pieces make sure to check out the Bling Collection! Happy Shopping!
