ARTISTRY 5:01 Party with Miss America 2012

The ARTISTRY 5:01 Party was one of the first events I went to this year. It took place on Thursday January 19th at Bar Basque inside the Eventi Hotel. The party was in celebration of ARTISTRY’s newest skin care technology and included a special guest appearance by the newly crowned Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler. Guests were treated to hors d'oeuvres, specialty cocktails, beauty treatments, makeovers and more. 

I first spotted the makeup stations where several ARTISTRY makeup artists were on hand to beautify attending guests. I was lucky to have my makeup done by Luba Samrick a top ARTISTRY makeup artist who also did my make up at the last ARTISTRY event which took place during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. I still remember how incredible she made me look and of course this time was no exception. Luba used ARTISTRY’s new Fresh Radiance Cheek and Eye Quad, Blue Lagoon Eye Pencil and a hint of the Tropical Coral Lip Gloss Duo Compact.

After my makeover I felt like a beauty queen so it was only befitting that I  mingle with the real beauty queen of the event Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler. We chatted for a bit about her recent win and her busy but exciting upcoming schedule. She was of course stunning in person and very down to earth.

Next, I had the opportunity to meet a few of ARTISTRY’s scientists who explained to me their newest developments as well as their new intensive skin care anti-wrinkle firming serum which is launching in March. It was interesting to learn that pioneers in the field of retinoid research in aging skin applications from the University of Michigan spent more than 10 years working to better understand retinol and mitigate side effects. ARTISTRY scientist then tested dozens of compounds to discover the perfect blend of natural extracts for optimal retinol benefits without irritation. More than 1,400 tests have been done to ensure ideal results. ARTISTRY scientists have also conducted comprehensive clinical studies and shown anti-wrinkle firming serum to have an overwhelming positive response.

I was briefed on a few benefits on the new ARTISTRY anti-wrinkle firming serum which included:
  • Proven to boost collagen activity by 300% overnight
  • Firm and more youthful skin in just 4 weeks without irritation
  • Clinically tested to help renew skin’s youthful firmness and resilience.
  • Unique, multi-dimensional formula features Next Generation Retinol, peptides, Vitamin C, and sooth extracts to restore and renew.

One of the many highlights of the event was trying on a crown and sash inspired by the special guest, Miss America 2012. I had a blast being the unofficial “Miss ARTISTRY 2012!"

After my mini photo shoot session I was pampered with a calming hand paraffin treatment and a much needed hand massage.

I had a fabulous time at the ARTISTRY 5:01 Party and honestly almost went to sleep with my make up on because I didn’t want to wash away the beautiful ARTISTRY makeup. (I did finally take it off because I don’t sleep in makeup but it was definitely a bittersweet moment to wash it away.)
