This weekend, I attended a delightful event at Sassafras Saloon in Hollywood, where I mingled with fellow beauty bloggers (some of whom were in town for IMATS...more on that later!) and took a peek at the Nuance by Salma Hayek makeup and skincare line. Hosted by the lovely gals at We Heart This and Jennifer Matthews of My Beauty Bunny, it was an enchanting evening of commiserating with likeminded beauty fiends, eating delicious southern style fare and swatching like crazy.
Kindly scroll on for more pictures of the night!

|Above: Foundation central...I received the Nuance liquid foundation in Light-Medium Cool (which looks surprisingly neutral to slightly yellow, rather than pink as the name would imply). I will be swatching and testing it promptly!|

Bottom Line: In addition to a wonderful evening of camaraderie (it was fantastic to meet my pale lipstick twin, Marcia, of BeautyInfoZone!), I received a bevy of Nuance products that I look forward to experiencing and posting about (first up will likely be the foundation). Steph, Tyna and Jen, Nuance and Sassafras Saloon...thanks for a brilliant event!
