Not only after they opened the Newcastle store, they announced that there would be a meet and great with two bloggers at the Metro Center a few days later. I honestly was in awe when they announced that would be Leanne Lim-Walker and Sabrina. When I first began reading blogs, I was inspired to start my own from reading Leanne’s so meeting her was an honour! Got a bit emosh after, but it was all fine because both the girls were just lovely down to earth people which were a pleasure to meet. From the event, I also got a little goodie bag which I shall include in my haul.
So let’s stop the chitter chat and get into this haul.
First up is the first item I ever got from NYX it’s their HD Concealer, and this is probably my third or fourth time purchasing this. It’s retailed at £5.99…. I think. I would check this but unfortunately, it has been removed from the boots website. I am not sure if this means that the product has been discontinued, honestly if it has ill possibly cry but moving on and upwards. The second two photos show a little scratch I have on my arm (Just from carrying boxes at work, nothing serious) and just to show a before and after of how well it is with covering any scars or blemishes.
Next, I picked up an eyeshadow, and the only reason I went for this product as when I was standing at the stall the shade reminded me a lot of the MAC shadow ‘Naked Lunch’ which is my all time favourite shade, I had been purchasing it for about several years (yes, it was possibly the first eyeshadow I bought) and I’ve loved it for so long. But as some of you may know I have decided that I will no longer be wearing the brand due to their animal testing. Something I am strongly against however the brand have stated that they are trying to remove this from their ethics and move onto the right side like NYX, whos products are crultey free. Unfortunately, the ‘Sex Kitten Bimbo’ shade (yep that’s its name) from NYX is just too much of a pink tone rather than the Naked Lunch which reminds me more of a highlighter but comes in at only £4.00. I still adore the shade and have been wearing it under my bottom lash line.
Here are some photos of our meet up, I had such a lovely time. Was a shame that some girls behind us were complaining that they didn’t receive enough from the meetup and had only shown up for the products. But that definitely didn’t ruin the event for me, my friend and sister. Had a nice chat with the girls like I said in the beginning of my post, but it seriously event like these which keep my faith in being a blogger, show just what you can achieve but most importantly the individuals that you can meet through hobbies like these.
Hope that you have enjoyed this little post. Thanks for reading x
