On Wednesday, May 17, 2012, Loose Button held their Summer Trends 2012 event at Dermalogica on King Street West in downtown Toronto. This was a beauty, trends and lifestyle event that had beauty bloggers, PR, and fashionistas alike nibbling on appetizers, sipping vino and learning about the top ten summer beauty trends from Chantel Guertin, Editor-at-Large at TheKit.ca. Reps from Valentino, Benefit and Dermalogica were also on hand to showcase and discuss their products. This CityGirl scored an invite and had a fantastic time; below are some of the highlights from the evening.

|Benefit's They're Real! beyond mascara|
|Benefit's ultra plush gloss|
|Benefit's bronzing and highlighting face powders (matches the glosses!)|
|Benefit's The POREfessional primer|
|Trying out the POREfessional on my hand - it feels so nice! Amazing scent as well!|

|The Kit magazine|
An autographed copy of one of Chantel's books (I received 'Stuck in Downward Dog' which I've actually read before and it is really good - chick lit at it's best. And it's set in Toronto! Now I have an autographed copy for my keeper shelf).
|This looks familiar...|
|Oooh, a The Kit-Luxebox collaboration!|
|Dermalogica gift sampler pack|
What a neat goodie bag! Thank you so much Loose Button, Dermalogica, Chantel and The Kit magazine, Benefit, Valentino, Joico and Made with Love (for the amazing cupcakes!). I had a great time; can't wait to do it again.
