Earlier this month, Barney's New York at the Grove in LA hosted a Beauty Event featuring a personal appearance by Troy Surratt, genius creator of the eponymous line, Surratt Beauty. I have raved about this line many times over (an insane amount of swatches HERE and HERE) and was resolute about taking the opportunity to see Troy and his exquisite line again after our first in-person at The Makeup Show LA. It was an afternoon of true beauty...fun family times, enlightening conversations and gorgeous surroundings!
Kindly scroll on for a host of images from the event as well as the Surratt Beauty products that I picked up and the Bottom Line...

|Above: The energy of the event was just lovely...classy and sophisticated, indeed.|
|Above: I also had the chance to meet the talented Celebrity Makeup Artist Sam Fine...he has such genuinely happy spirit about him.|

|Above: So much to take in!|
|Above: Smokey Eye Batons, Lipsliques, Concealers, Brow Pencils and the magnificent Relevee Eyelash Curlers...so wondrously effective. Troy told me that his packaging intends to reflect all of the finishes that makeup can have...from matte, to glossy to shimmery. I think this image best reflects that vision!|

Of course, I couldn't go to a Surratt Beauty event without picking out some choice items to add to my ever-growing collection. In this case, I chose the Large Palette (which houses various six shadows, four blushes, or two blushes and two shadows, which is how I planned to use it!), a new Artistique Eyeshadow in Dore and a couple of Lipsliques in Chuchoter and Fee Soie (a back up as this is my favorite shade, hands down!).

Bottom Line: To say that the Troy Surratt Beauty Event at Barney's NY was divine would be an understatement! From getting the opportunity to visit with the charming and endlessly-knowledgable Troy to commiserating with like-minded beauty enthusiasts who are equally wild about the Surratt Beauty line, I am glad I was able to attend. If you are new to the Surratt Beauty line, I highly suggest taking a peek immediately; this Barney's NY exclusive is one of the most exciting things to happen to niche, independent cosmetics in an extraordinarily long time!
