Groupe Marcelle Spring 2012 Beauty Premiere

Last month, I was invited to Groupe Marcelle's Beauty Premiere in Toronto, held at the Thompson Hotel. I was so excited leading up to the event especially after reading about the Montreal premiere held a week earlier! So on that day, I headed there after classes with Rasilla.

The event was held at the rooftop bar of the Thompson, which had a gorgeous view of the city.

Unfortunately it was too cold for us to actually go outside on the balcony for long, but I did get a great shot of the city lights.

One of the first things we saw, were servers coming around offering us platters of Annabelle/Marcelle makeup! Not something you see at every cocktail party ;) It was hard to resist...and this lady was pretty much swarmed every time she came around with a fresh tray :D

Eyeshadows, lipsticks, pigments, pencil liners, Annabelle Smudgeliners and Smoothie pencils...a beauty junkie's heaven.

Beauty bloggers Ande and Arianne listening to what the Marcelle team have in store for us for Spring 2012.

One of the new launches will be the BigShow lipglosses:

Xtensions Plus mascara, I received a sample of this and will be reviewing it soon. The lady who introduced this product was wearing it and her lashes looked beautiful!

Reinforcils Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover, which also conditions lashes as well all in one step. Can't wait for this one!

Gene Youth Skincare line

The beauty balm (BB) cream, I tried a sample of this on my hand and it has a nice smooth feel to it. Comes in a light shade and a medium shade, as with all Asian BB creams.

The brilliant ladies of the Marcelle team behind the new innovations :)

I also reconnected with the lovely Isabel, PR & Social Media Director extraordinaire at Groupe Marcelle :)

One of the biggest hits of the evening was the custom gloss bar, where we all got a customized Annabelle BigShow gloss!

Photobucket


We were shown a choice of colours /shimmer-glitter combinations to select from, and were allowed to choose 4-6 different shades to be mixed together with the main lipgloss base.

Photobucket


My first attempt came out as a peachy-pink with some pink shimmer:

Towards the end of the night I decided to go for a second gloss, along with dessert ;) This time I deliberately targeted a brighter pinker shade:

I also took a video of the gloss mixologists in action - enjoy!




Thanks for reading! Once I get more infomation on the new products closer to the launch date I will be sure to share :) Which products interest you the most? I myself am excited for the lash conditioner and the BB cream.
