The Chat's beauty and lifestyle Expert Noreen Young is back from NYC to share some of her beauty adventures in the city.

Straight from Noreen:

One of the most exciting parts of my trip was not only to guest speak in NYC but I also attended an annual event that cosmetic executives attend. I sipped champagne, sniffed, touched and played with new product launches on the beauty market.

In my discoveries, I found brands that are zero-chemical skin care, Vegetarian, Vegan and more from head to toe.They also had some new launches for men, K-Beauty has never been more on trend, and the launch of a new skin care device that exfoliates and polishes the skin.

What's hot and trending are bold colors, every shade of pink lipstick and lip stains or gloss and multi-tasking beauty all in one compact.

Press-on and gel nails are still on trend, hair-deepening color shampoo, and BB Body Glow (a gradual self tanning beauty balm) gives a gorgeous hydrated glow.

What to expect in beauty this spring? A healthier and color-filled beauty and skin care picture from head to toe!

Also, the boutiques and shops in NYC were filled with fashionable accessories like lipstick tube rings, earrings, wristlet handbags, bracelets and pins.
