What a weekend, all jam packed !!
And I still need to pack !! I shall be flying off to Rome, therefore I do not know if I will be able to finish off Blogmas! I return on Saturday!!
Apologies if I don’t! But I will try my best!
I would like to start my blog post by sharing with you all an amazing event that happened in Malta & Gozo!
As you all know one of my favourite brands is Essence. I have been buying their products I think since I started using makeup .. so around when I was 16 years old. I used to go down to the pharmacy by walk and buy five pounds worth of products. And Essence is such an inexpensive brand so I managed to collect quite a bit.
I loved their nail polishes, I remember I tried to collect every shade. However, now I have acrylic nails so I do not use nail polish besides on my toes. But I still have some running around my room.
Anywho’s because I am going out of point here! Essence Cosmetics Malta have set up an event called the Essence Cosmetics Buffet. They did it last year but I did not get a chance to go because if I remember correctly it was held once in Gozo.
But this year they ran it three times in three different locations – Pavi, Arkadia Gozo and JB Stores!
See when the event was held in Pavi 2 weeks ago I was meant to go, but I was stuck in bed with temperature. So I patiently waited for the third event at JB Stores, and my friend and I went yesterday and we had so much fun!!
See the buffet basically was that there is a huge box filled with lots of makeup, and you either pay €5 to use one hand or €10 to use two hands to grab as many products as you can and place them in the bag. All the products you manage to place in the bag are yours and those that fall out are unfortunately not!
Christabel took a video clip of me picking out the items and putting them into the bags which I thank her for doing so!! So as you can see I managed to grab quite a bit! Thank goodness for my dad’s genes of having big hands.
But yes there were dads and boyfriends trying to win their loved ones as many makeup products as they can. My friend and I were lucky and got quite a handful of stuff!
I did get some duplicates especially since I did it twice. But I gave some to my mum and some I am keeping for a future giveaway. Wink Wink!! I got the new foundation that I am so excited to try out and the a new powder which I saw a review about which should be good. I got some lip products, nail products and eyeliners. I also got 5 mousse foundation tubs which is hilarious!!
I also got 2 small eyeshadow palettes and lots of green mascaras which I have already tried and loved. I use them first then cover it up using black mascara! The green mascara really separated and lengthened my lashes!!
Also, with every ticket to participate in the event we got a perfume for free. That is so amazing!! We really got our money’s worth!!
If you would like to see a blog post/video showing you guys what I managed to grab let me know in the comments down below !!!
Thank you so much for reading!! Have a lovely day!
