Hello Wonderful people

Hope you are having a fabulous day.This is so late in coming, but I actually have some energy to sit down and write a blog post, so here I am!

Sydney Glamour Affair was held on the 20th of June in the lovely Daniel San Beachside Dojo in Manly, just across the road from Manly Beach.  As I live in Sydney’s west, it was a bit of a hike in for me, taking me over 2 hours to get there via public transport (Train, bus and ferry), but it was worth it.

Public transport may be a bitch, but at least it was a beautiful day on the harbour

It was great meeting other fellow bloggers, though me being the introvert that I am, I didn’t talk to as many as I wanted to. There were presentation from bioderma with fabulous makeup artist Shella Martin (@shellarubymartin) giving us a demonstration in using skincare with/as makeup, Boe beauty telling is about the new Boe Professional range, an introduction to Rosehip plus, and a luscious smelling demo from the Lush girls, and much more.

I wish I had gotten more photos, but the gorgeous bright view out onto manly beach had a bit too much glare for my camera phone to get any good shots. If you want to see some fabulous photos from the day check out the glamour affair Instagram account @glamour_affair, or check out the hashtag #glamouraffair.

I had a great time, and of course was able to take home some fabulous goodies, which almost broke my back on the way home there was so much. 

So far I have hardly touched it any of it, but I have looked over all the makeup products we received and I am eager to get stuck into some of it, now that my first trimester funk has passed. 

Rimmel gifted us some lovely products, I am especially excited about those gorgeous vampy lipstick shades,

The Mary Kay Products, are so pretty, and came with a lovely makeup bag, love the colours of the nail polish and the eyeshadows, and the Lip cream I have received before in a beauty box (lust have it I think) but in a different colour. And how gorgeous  does that powder compact look.

Boe Beauty have some lovely products for such an affordable brand, so many new lip products to try!

ah benefit, a brand I covet, but do not buy, mostly as I am stingy, and there no counter close to me at all. We received one of their not yet released (at the time) new they’re real push up coloured liners, mine is brown, and a sample of the porefessional license to blot powder and they’re real mascara

I love Shanghai Suzy lipsticks, and when I saw these I almost squealed in joy. This is the fairly new released gothic chic collection, that I wanted to try. Was funny as I was getting ready to go to Glamour Affair, and umming and ahhing about what lipstick to wear, my other half jokingly asks me if I had gold. Well  ha!, now I do 🙂
