Nothing to Disclose
When I was at The Makeup Show NYC a few weeks ago I was introduced to a new business called Alcone at home that immediately caught my eye.
For those of you that may not know, Alcone is a family owned business that started over 60 years ago as a pharmacy that sold products and supplies to professional makeup artists. After being on the retail end of the spectrum for half a century Alcone decided to launch their own makeup line, Alcone at home, which was designed with the everyday woman in mind.
Swarovski Crystal lip gloss packaging? You had me at hello.
Aside from developing their own products (which are fabulous. I'll have a full review coming up soon) Alcone at home developed what have to be THE CUTEST refillable magnetic palettes. The entire Alcone at home system was created to help makeup artists and consumers streamline their routine in the morning. By utilizing a refillable magnetic palette system I think they achieved just that!
I'm literally dying over the silver chevron palette... DYING. The palettes pictured above are also housed in a palette organizer which was developed with cramped spaces in mind. I had the pleasure of talking to Michele Gay, Co-Founder of Alcone at home, who explained that she developed these palettes and organizers after needing more space in her tiny apartment bathroom.
Since I was fortunate enough to be given early access to The Makeup Show I was able to take my time and talk to Michele about her brand and what it's about. Alcone at home is not only a makeup line but it can also be turned into a business of your own! You can sign up to be an Alcone at home "Artist" and then host parties to introduce the products to others. As an artist you'll receive 25-30% commission on all your sales and if you choose to lead a team you'll also receive a percentage of their sales as well. For more details on what it means to be an Alcone at home "Artist" please check out their website. They have tons of information!
These makeup brushes seriously blew my mind. Remember when I mentioned that the entire organization concept was designed out of necessity due to small apartment bathrooms? Well, feast your eyes on this:
YES. That is a makeup brush INSIDE of a makeup brush! The handle on the Alcone at home brush separates from the ferrule to provide you with a small, easy to use brush. The entire brush set comes with 8 brushes but you'll only be needing to store 4. No awkward double ended brushes here! (because really, how do you even store those?)
I was fortunate enough to receive a few different products from Alcone at home and I am currently working on a review of them right now. I'll tell you this though: I like what I've seen so far!
What do you think? Would you be interested in something like this? What do you think of the double brushes? Comment below and let me know!
Until next time :)
