Seriously, you’ll get the vapors when you hear about this one from our ever so generous friends at CEW (Cosmetic Executive Women).

Every March, over 2,000 cosmetic industry executives attend the Beauty Insiders Choice Awards Product Demo. While there, we get to test over 600 of the best new products introduced in the previous year. After an exhausting evening of swatching eye, lip and cheek colors on wrists, massaging serums on hands, sniffing perfumes, inspecting new designs in packaging and listening to the 500 product demonstrators regale us with the innovations, the voting begins.

It’s the Oscars of the beauty world, and the winners are announced at a very prestigious award luncheon in May. Carlotta Jacobs, CEW President says, “The Awards have become an invaluable resource for consumers, who recognize that the CEW seal stands for a truly innovative and effective beauty product because it is the only award selected by those who know beauty’s best – the industry insiders.”

At the end of the evening, gift bags filled with many of the products are given out to attendees. Well, we managed to twist the pretty arms of our CEW pals and snag an extra for one very, very lucky Beauty News NYC reader! This tan canvas bag, with the Allure logo, is chock full of products and worth approximately $2000.00!!!! The bag is filled with skin care, hair products, makeup, nail products and fragrances from companies such as: L’Oreal, Aveda, St. Ives, Strivectin, Blow, BeautyRx, Garnier, Dove, Makeup Forever, Bottega Veneta, Cle de Peau, Korres, Olay, SheaMoisture, Skin Medica, Palmer’s CocoaButter, Dr. Lewinn, Algenist, Two Faced and others.
