Believe me, this event warrants this many I promise.
This weekend I headed down to Kensington Olympia for a day filled with all things beauty. Olympia Beauty is a show with over 500 brands showcasing their products and services, basically my idea of heaven on earth. Just imagine an entire building, filled with rows upon rows of beauty stands… *bliss* I was utterly overwhelmed, running around like a kid in a candy store, quite literally.
My first stop was NYX Cosmetics, of course. There was a hefty line but it was oh so worth the wait. Here in the UK, we have been somewhat deprived of this brand which is so loved by bloggers worldwide. Although I do have quite a bit of NYX makeup already, I couldn’t help but to pick up a few more things. It would have been a crime not to right? *Newsflash* NYX is now sold in Selfridges in London!
I was also pleasantly surprised to find other brands like Sigma, TheBalm, LAGirl and Milani, as they aren’t readily available in the UK. I was happy to expand my collection from these brands, without having to take a trip across the pond to the States!
A great perk to the show was all of the incredible skin services, absolutely free of charge! I had a full skin analysis with the lovely ladies at Dermalogica who then gave me samples for a full skincare routine tailored to my specific needs. I also had my skin tested under UV light to reveal my many many freckles!
All in all, it was a great day and I’ve managed to add to my makeup collection, because there’s no such thing as too much makeup right? That’s what I tell myself anyway!
