Last weekend, I went to Las Vegas with a couple friends (who also happen to be former coworkers). Mostly we went to attend the International Beauty Show, a huge 3-day expo for beauty professionals. I hadn’t been to one since I was still in cosmetology school (and back then, I didn’t have the income to buy tons of stuff), so naturally, I was super excited. The trip was also intended as a girls’ night out of sorts, which was also exciting because I hadn’t had one of those in quite a while, either.
Vegas was fun, and the show was awesome, and I spent quite a pretty penny on shiny new tools and hair products, but most importantly, I bought glitter.
Those who know me know my long-standing obsession with the sparkly stuff, and could probably hazard a guess at how I reacted when I passed a whole booth dedicated to it. Without even waiting for a sales pitch or looking at prices, I started picking out vials. I did rein myself in a little bit, and only bought 8 vials, but I fully plan on buying more from the company – Art Glitter – when I start running out of my craft store-bought glitter that I know I’m not supposed to use on my face but I do anyway.
Anyway, check out this beautiful, beautiful glitter.
And also, a video of the swatches, so you can see them in all their sparkly glory.
