Judging at the Beauty Challenger Awards – Beyond Beauty Paris

Judging at the Beauty Challenger Awards – Beyond Beauty Paris

As you may have already read, in September of last year I was lucky enough to be invited to judge at The Beauty Challenger Awards at Cosmeeting’s Beyond Beauty Paris show. Read about my city break here.  I’ve visited this show several times, so it was great to be invited to be on the judging panel of these prestigious awards! It seems so long ago now, but I thought I would share with you some of the highlights from the show for me, if you’ve heard of any of these brand do let me know what products you have tried!

First up, German makeup brand Und Gretel. Unfortunately on the day that I was visiting their sample and selling stock had not arrived so they only had the stuff in the display cabinet. Nevertheless co-founder and Berlin based makeup artist Christina Roth showed me their foundation along with their eye makeup and I was super impressed. The brand and its products had been seven years in the making, and the fastidiousness showed through in the products! It seems rather timely that on the day I wrote this post they launched their products into stores across Germany and one in Austria. Their website goes live on the 29th January – undgretel.com

Next up, Jane Iredale‘s stand. Regular readers will know that I am a big fan of Jane Iredale products, and I was lucky enough to meet the lovely lady behind the brand. I’m ashamed to say I’ve still not typed up my recording – I really should put that on my to-do list! They had a few new products on display. Firstly, City Lights; a stylish new sophisticated palette that they launched for autumn. Check out that eyeshadow palette! Such fabulous neutrals; I feel a smokey neutral eye coming on! There are also some great gel eyeliners and a sparkly lip gloss.

Next, Smell the Roses Hydration Spray; a beautiful rose toner, a few spritzes of this were a welcome refreshment to my skin as I walked around the expo.

Natura Siberica is a brand I’ve seen around at the Natural & Organic Products Europe show, and I tried a couple of their products previously; the eye cream sadly irritated my skin but the face mask I love. I was so happy to see them at Beyond Beauty Paris! It’s one of those that warms on application to the skin. Review on that coming very soon! The below product is definitely on my to try list next – Northern Soap – a detox soap for deep facial cleansing. It’s a black soap, so looks most unusual and certainly stood out the most out of all the products I was reviewing!

Something I did get to try (again review coming soon) is the fabulous Natura Siberica Sea Buckthorn hair care. The cleansing shampoo and deep hydrating conditioner. They are fabulous products that really smoothed my hair, leaving it in superb condition. I also love the smell of them, although what the fragrance is I could not tell you.

Overall, I had a lovely time at Beyond Beauty Paris! Hope to return someday soon!
