Makeup Junkie: How did The Beauty Board start?
Stephanie: One day, I thought to myself how great it is to be a blogger and how I get to test out a bunch of product daily. I wanted to share this experience with my readers; after all, I would get emails daily from readers, family, friends, and clients about what I would recommend or what I think about a product. At that moment, I organized my first The Beauty Board. I had twelve guests, held it in my small condo, and had four brands present. I let my guests test and try out the products and provide their “editorial reviews”. I posted the reviews on BlushPretty.com and the next thing I know I was getting requests to be a part of the next one. The second event was held in October 2009 and it grew to over 35 guests and about 8 brands. The last one in April 2010, had over 50 guests and over 10 brands present. It grew so fast ...
MJ: What are some beauty must-haves that you discovered at The Beauty Board?
SD: Its so hard to narrow it down to just one! Everyone loved Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics for the 3-Free Nail Polish; COVERGIRL LashBlast Length for Mascara; Consonant Body for their Body Soap (which comes with a Loofah!!); DaLish Cosmetics lip glosses; MaryKay’s Cheek Colour in Pomegranate; and a past but on-going favourite is Cake Beauty’s Milk Made Velveteen Hand Cream!
Thanks Stephanie for organizing such a fantastic event for us beauty lovers! I can't wait!
