So last Sunday was the Beauty Blogger Awards at Kensington Olympia. I had been to the Olympia just last week for the National wedding show but never before for the BBloggerAwards. I set my alarm for 6.30am to allow enough time for a full bath, hair wash, blow dry and makeup routine and managed to leave the house at 8.30am what a miracle! The tube was lovely and quiet, giving me time to think about the day ahead and what to expect. I was mostly excited about Nyx Cosmetics after seeing an IMATS haul YouTube video from Diamonds on Deck
I arrived half an hour before opening and found Style Lingua and Girl at the Rock Show. We got a great goody bag full of treats and made our way to the Nyx stall. We didn’t have to wait long to talk to the PR manager and Emily of @Vanityvenom. They gave us so many tips and advice on their products and I found a few favourites without much looking- the Wonder Contour stick and the Jumbo pencil in milk.
I’ve uploaded a short video of me trying out the Wonder Stick to YouTube- check it out here! https://youtu.be/N_oPELG8NaU
Below are the Nyx goodies I picked up which I will be trying this week and choosing my top 3 to blog about:
We also saw beautiful brows who kindly gave us a brow-over. It’s a semi permanent powder which lasts longer than the benefit brow kit I have been using and there are more colours available. The kit comes with stencils too so if you have trouble with a steady hand this will help your precision. I have posted my result on Instagram but here it is again if you missed it:
Another brow company that had a stand at the blogger awards was lash perfect. They do brow kits as well as lash extensions but their brow kits can last up to 3 weeks. They gave me a sample of their eyelash conditioner to try so we shall see how this goes! We then found Luisa made our way to the much larger trade arena. We were let in with our blogger name badges and proceeded to manoeuvre around the gigantic hall filled to the brim with luxuries and ladies. Here are a few snaps of the things that caught my eye:
All the brushes from crown!
All in all I had a marvellous day out with my blogger babes, and for a free event it is definitely worth going even if you don’t want to buy anything. I think I did pretty well for £12 on 3 brushes!
