I had the privilege of being invited to an event showcasing the best of Oriflame makeup this evening and I just had to post about it immediately because it was so amazing! A small group of beauty bloggers were invited to Avoca on Suffolk Street where we commandeered the top floor. There were fabulous displays of the makeup scattered around the room and we were able to browse them at our leisure.
We were told a bit about Oriflame – a company that has been around for over 45 years at this stage and actually does a lot of its research in Ireland. Since Avon have pulled out of Ireland, Oriflame is looking very likely to fill the void it has left for us beauty lovers!
We were then treated to a makeup demonstration that encompassed all of the key trends – a ‘barely there’ look, a smokey eye, and a red lip. It was really great to see so many of the products in use.
After the demonstration we had another look around at all the makeup and were given bags to make up our own goody bags of products in our shades and what we liked best. It was very dangerous but so so enjoyable! I particularly loved the lipsticks – and how they matched Donna‘s nails.
Overall it was an amazing evening with some really lovely people – bloggers and the Oriflame/Faith PR team! I even allowed myself a sneaky glass of bubbly while we watched the demo and chatted about the company and about makeup overall. I cannot wait to get to try all my fabulous new products out! Times like this I *hate* being a blogger because it is oh so tempting to just use everything but I know I need to take photos so I can share it all with you in future posts! I hope ye appreciate it! 😉
