Benefit Masterclass Cardiff

Last Wednesday I went to a masterclass by Benefit at Boots Cardiff. The theme of the event was a summer look which was created by makeup artist Ant on the model - Lauren. It was quite a small masterclass, there were 2 other people there apart from me, so it was nice and relaxed.

Waiting for us were some nice glasses of Bucks Fizz.

When we had all settled down Ant showed us all step by step how to create a nice look for summer. He went from everything from complexion, to eyes and then brows. The masterclass was great as we were free to ask any questions about the products or how to apply them.

After the event we were able to look on the counter at different products and try any on if we wanted. The masterclass was only about half an hour, but I thought it was great as it covered everything and gave us all good tips, especially on things like eyeliner application and filling in brows. 

I'm really looking forward to the next masterclass the will be coming up. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks Ant and Lauren at Benefit, Boots.

Illamasqua Vendetta Lipstick

I always like unusual colored lipsticks and when I saw that there was a blue one coming out for Illamasqua's new summer collection, I was excited to try it out. It's called Vendetta and is described as a rich cobalt blue with a satin finish. 

This lipstick has a really nice smooth texture that glides on to the lips. It has loads of pigment in it and doesn't take long to get intense color on the lips. It has a nice moisturizing feel to it which is great as my lips are dry. It does stay on for ages, although it does need a bit of reapplying later on in the day. I didn't have to reapply much as most of it was still on. I loved the color too as it was very bright and unusual.
