As a blogger, I sometimes get invited to events to check out new product launches – it’s one of the favorite parts of the job. I get to attend events, mingle with my fellow bloggers, meet brands, and get a sneak peek of what’s to come in the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle world. I was recently invited to the beautypress event to check out what’s new from some brands that are new to me and some that I was already a long-time fan of.
You might recall that I attended a Spotlight Day event for beautypress a few months ago. Check out that haul here.
I headed to the Midtown Loft & Terrace last Wednesday and was introduced to some cool brands that I had never heard of before. When I arrived at the space that was overlooking Midtown Manhattan, I checked in and received my name badge that also displayed my blog’s name and began chatting with the different brands that were there.
I spoke to the different PR for each brand and learned about the launch dates, inspiration, and meanings behind the brands. There were 3 brands that were new to me there that really stuck out, and one that was already a favorite.
BCL Naturals Hair Care
Launch Date: January 2017 at Sally’s Beauty
The first brand that I met that really stood out was BCL Naturals Hair Care. BCL Naturals Hair Care is, as the name suggests, a natural hair care line with professional quality. The brand has two different lines that help common hair care concerns. There’s the Intense Hydration line that helps to moisturize dry, dull, and frizzy hair to bring it back to life. There’s also the Repair & Reconstruct line that helps to repair and protect damaged hair. According to the brand, it’s Sulfate-free. Hypoallergenic. Paraben-free. Color Safe. Gluten-Free. No harsh preservatives. pH balanced. Vegan. Cruelty-Free. No GMOs. No Phthalates.
I can’t believe that I’d never heard of Note Cosmetics before this event. This makeup brand is right up my alley with its minimal packaging and bold pigmentation. The best part? Everything is under $20! They are launching their Sunglow Foundation and Ultra Rich Color Lipstick at the beginning of next year. I received a few of the products in a gift bag, so stay tuned for a full review of the products.
Launch Date: Available now at MiraiClinical.com
Mirai Clinical is a Japanese skincare brand that believes in the practice of “Less is more”. They use quality ingredients and a lot of their products are made for multitasking purposes. They use a lot of well known Japanese ingredients like persimmon, Cherry Blossom, and green tea. I can’t wait to try the brand out. I’ll be sure to report back with my verdict.
Launch Date: Available now at most drugstores.
I’m already a fan of the brand but I learned new things from the brand like the washes are meant to be used on the whole body. If you haven’t heard of Summer’s Eve before, it’s a women’s body care brand that’s ph balanced, gynecologist and dermatologist tested. I was also introduced to their night time line that I hadn’t seen before and I’m really excited to try it out!
