The Golden Ticket, Part Deux

A few months ago I gushed to you about the fun I had at the Cosmetic Executive Women Beauty Awards Demo. Well, last week I had the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony itself at the Waldorf Astoria, and let me tell you, it was like winning that golden ticket all over again.

The awards were hosted by the hilarious Mario Cantone (who you know as Charlotte's wedding planner from SATC), and among the presenters were Las Vegas' Vanessa Marcil and another SATC alum, Jason Lewis. Vanessa Marcil is a tiny girl, with a great tan and the shiniest hair I have ever laid eyes upon. And Jason Lewis...aka Smith Jerrod...swoonworthy!

Beauty luminaries in attendance included Linda Wells, editor-in-chief of Allure, Jill Scalamandre, Frederic Fekkai, Sonia Kashuk, and Randi Shinder, among others. My head is still spinning!

Here's the list of finalists, with the winners in bold italics. Mouse over the listings for links to posts I've written on the various products. I was proud to see many Beauty Addict favorites in the winners' circle and the finalists!
