Over 1,000 attendees gathered July 23 to watch Beauty Pitch™ 2016, a one-of-a-kind beauty competition, hosted by the Professional Beauty Association (PBA) and Cosmoprof North America (CPNA). Six innovative beauty companies, in two different categories, pitched their products before a live audience and celebrity judges including John Paul DeJoria and Kevin Harrington.
We had a chat with Carlos Cintron of FUME IRON, to talk about their innovative product, what’s next for the company, and how they feel about exhibiting at Cosmoprof North America this weekend.
We’re always excited to feature our unique and innovative members! It’s refreshing to see indie brands on the rise doing great things. Today we’re talking with Lori Machiorlette, from blendSMART. “blendSMART is a first-of-a-kind automated makeup brush system with interchangeable brush heads that spin at 190 RPMs,” says Lori. “The spinning motion mimics the techniques of professional makeup artists and provides an innovative tool to blending makeup fast, easier, better than traditional makeup brushes.”
