Last night I had the pleasure of attending the exclusive Beauty Confidential event at House of Fraser in Glasgow. This was an opportunity to discover all of this season’s key beauty trends and new products!! The event was held in the gorgeous ground floor beauty hall of the store with demonstrations and beauty tips from all the big brands including Bobbi Brown, Chanel, YSL and Lancôme – HOF’s team of brand skincare specialists were also on hand to offer mini massages. It’s never a good thing for me to be let loose at these sorts of events so its needless to say I made a few purchases by the end of the night!!
Ticket price was £10, another bargain through Itison Events and was redeemable against any purchases on the night, I also got a lovely big goody bag on my way out with lots of samples.
Here are some of the highlights from the night:
Urban Decay! I have to say I haven’t bought a lot of UD products apart from the Naked palettes and eye primer so I was really interested to see this contouring masterclass. I’ve always seen it as such a sassy, trend-setting brand with some of the best eyeshadows I’ve seen.
So impressed I ended up redeeming my £10 voucher against the Naked Skin Liquid Foundation and NAKED SKIN Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. I tried both out this morning and I have to say I am impressed, the foundation is light but has really great buildable coverage and the concealer blended like a dream, I am glowing.
Are there any great Urban Decay products that you have used? Id love to hear from you.
On the way out I also stopped by the Chanel counter………….. I think you know where this is going!! Originally I had my heart set on the Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base, that was of course until I spied the Soleil Tan De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid. Oh My, this is perhaps the most dreamy sun-kissed illuminator I have ever set eyes on, I had to have it. This can be used to highlight skin on its own or added to foundation to create an all over glow – you can never get enough glow. I’ve yet to try this out at home but will give an update as soon as I do!
