A BeautyFULL weekend with Luminato & MMVA Turn It Up | L'Oreal Paris, CoverGirl, Lancôme, Matrix Biolage
|Gigantic disco ball at Luminato|
|Line up for L'Oreal Paris Nail Bar|
|Nail polishes galore... I want them ALL... So beautiful!|
For those of you who don't know, the color genius app will give you suggestions on what makeup/nail to wear. You simply take a picture of yourself with the app (or use what's in your photo library), and it'll give you three combinations for you to "blend it", "match it", or "clash it". After event goer has picked their nail polish, they'll get a mani and also receive a bottle of nail polish from L'Oreal Paris. What a neat idea!
Speaking of Luminato, this year Lancôme has a great photography exhibition "Roses by...". This exhibition features 20 world famous photographer with their photos of roses. On top of that, Lancôme also invited 20 Canadian bloggers to share their roses inspired photographs. Of course, I went check out the virtual gallery, which features some of my blogger friends!

All the pictures are really well photographed. You can search "Lancôme" on your app store to look for the app (you might still be able to access those pictures).
The annual Much Music Video Awards also happen to be on the same opening weekend of Luminato. As the sponsor of MMVA, CoverGirl set up a BeautyBar on Queen Street to provide makeovers in celebration of this annual event.
It was a incredibly successful pop up store. The line was so long and they were fully booked for all 3 days they were there. I didn't get to have a makeover myself, but I did take the opportunity to play with their photo booth with a fan. Yes a fan blowing in our faces lol.

I got a chance to chat with one of the Matrix hair stylists, Patrick. He gave me lots of tips and tricks that I'm hoping I could remember them all. He mentioned that there're many different ways to use these oils: use it your shampoo and conditioner, use it as a leave-in conditioner, use it to soften your curls or to keep your hair straight... Currently testing them out, will report back soon! :)
That weekend was a whole lot of fun! I'm loving Summer (minus the humidity) so far! How was your weekend? Did you check out Luminato and MMVA?
Until next time,
