ACI Beauty Spring/Summer 2014 Preview Event

Earlier this week, I, along with a few other CBB ladies had the pleasure of attending a Spring/Summer beauty preview event hosted by ACI Brands, the Canadian distributer of beauty brands like Stila, Cargo, Anna Sui, Ardell, Seche, and Ceramic Glaze. I've never been to an event like this so I had no idea what to expect but boy was I blown away by pretty much everything!

The event was held at a lovely little suite inside the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in downtown Vancouver. At the event there were different stations set up featuring all the new products from brands that ACI represents.
Among Stila's many new releases are the new shades of Magnificent Metals Foil Eyeshadows and a whole range of CC Creams that adjusts to your skin tone.

Cargo cosmetics has recently revamped the packaging of many of their best sellers and they also released new cream eyeshadow palette called the "Suited to a Tea Eyeshadow Palette".

At the Anna Sui station all of Anna's gorgeously designed perfumes and makeup were on display, check out that perfume bottle! Seriously, how gorgeous is that!?!

Ardell released a series of new lash styles including the Corset collection and the Curvy Collection; I got to try on a pair from the Spiky collection which actually looked incredibly natural!

Last but certainly not least, there were the polish releases from Ceramic Glaze and Seche! There were lots of pastels for spring and neons for summer! 

In addition to the previews, ACI also invited two lovely Vancouver manicurist from Haus of Lacquer and Crown the Queens to do our nails. Check out my friend's neon roses and my free hand chevron design (free handed by the manicurist, of course)!

And as if the preview and the manicure wasn't awesome enough, all the attendees went home with a humongous goodie bag. I swear I didn't raid the place!!

Here is a group shot of the ladies that attended the event! You can spot Gerry from The Bunnie Hole, Jordana from Just J, Jayne from Cosmeticproof, and Jenn from A Beautiful Zen.
I had a blast checking out all the new products and catching up with the CBB girls. Thanks so much to ACI and Overcat for organizing such an awesome event in Vancouver.
I will be reviewing some of the goodies I brought home so stay tuned for that!
Thanks for dropping by, have a good one!
