#CincodeColor Event at COLOR Salon by Michael Boychuck

Press Event

It's the 5th of May, what's a girl to do? Does she find the nearest taco truck (I'm game!), does she find the closest sombrero (NOPE!), or does she hang out at one of the 100 best salons in the country (as voted by Elle magazine) and indulge in festive margaritas with multi-colored sugary rims and glittery lips to match?! I think you know where this is going. Mmmm, tequila.

Hit the jump for photos and more about the event!

Upon walking into the COLOR Salon, we were greeted by the lovely Camille, PR expert extraordinaire, and Starbucks drink twin. (Caramel Macchiato or Dirty Chai for life!) She gave us  a tour of the gorgeous salon, which is bright and opulent; they specialize in hair extensions, and have many bridal clients for hair and makeup. Michael Boychuck is a celebrity stylist, and his list of clients include some of the most popular celebrities out there– Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Gwen Stefani, to name a few! The washing basins were so  unique, and actually looked relaxing and comfortable, and pedicure chairs were set up in a semi-private room, allowing for some peaceful relaxation, which is an absolute MUST! Our tour ended in front of a table of delicious (and strong) margaritas set up in the makeup and nail studio portion of the salon, where the magic happened. :D

Magic, you say?! This room is we were transformed into glittering goddesses, shimmering mermaids, or simply matched our lips to our personalities...sparkling. ;) I gave Rihanna, the makeup artist who transformed my lips, free reign to do whatever color her heart desired, after all, I'm pretty ballsy when it comes to lip colors... I'll wear pretty much anything!  She selected a BRIGHT bubblegum pink, which I'll admit threw me, since it was NOT a color that would flatter my skin tone in ANY capacity. However, once she worked her magic, added in some bronzy gold glitter, I was completely shocked! The color had transformed into a gorgeous peachy coral with glints of gold! It was a perfect color for spring, and was great for my coloring! The magic didn't end there... you HAVE to see her Cinco de Mayo nails!! (That Frida nail - LOVE!)

Also at the event was one of my friends and favorite Las Vegas bloggers, Stephanie of All Things Beautiful XO, and she got some KILLER mermaid ombre lips to match her mermaidy turquoise and blue hair! I have to say, I'm mad at her for her ability to take a good boomerang of her sparkling lips, a talent that I apparently do not possess. :D Seriously though, hers was perfect in one shot! :D *grumble grumble*

The newest thing from Michael Boychuck is his line of makeup brushes, and let me tell you, they are SO. DAMN. SOFT. I couldn't stop touching the large Fan brush. It was pretty much like what a cloud would feel like if it were in brush form... or the wings of angels... perhaps the soft floof of kitty toes! :D The full 24-piece set includes every type of brush you could need, and is vegan, including the vegan-leather case! There is also the option of the 5-piece travel set that includes the essentials (lip, angle shader, crease, foundation, and powder), without sacrificing quality and the brushes are contained in a simple, but cute, metallic travel case!

I had such a great time at the event chatting with Camille and Blaire and all the other girls, and it was totally worth braving the Las Vegas strip on a Friday night.... on Cinco de Mayo!! How did you spend yours?


  1. Ooh this sounds like the most perfect event & I love that your lip, while actually quite delicate after all the glitter, looks gorgeously mermaid esque!
