Last Thursday, myself and a bunch of other beauty bloggers made our way down to the L'Oreal HQ in Hammersmith to attend the Maybelline event that was much anticipated by us all (...judging by all the posts, tweets and convos leading up to it! haha!)

The afternoon began with me meeting up with Sophie and Zoe. We then went off to Selfridges. The girlies bought some stuff while i just looked around...(Mum and Dad don't want to see another makeup purchase for a while, as i'm meant to be saving up for Uni!! :/). 
Anyhoo the window shopping and swatchomania was really fun.

Here's a pic i took of them with the Manager of the Illa Counter...

While waiting for Vicky...I asked the a Newspaper vendor to take a picture of Zoe and I. How I know he was definately watching us before I even asked him to take the pic, was he asked where our friend was...(Sophie, who was gone for a moment to grab a drink.)

The "flirty bugger" like Zoe said, then asked me for my name...knowing where this was going I just blurted out the first name that came to mind, which was "Lassie"!!

(Reason: I had previously seen a dog that reminded me of Lassie, as in the movie with the dog! LOL!)
I ended the convo there, by walking off with Zoe...! lol

That was funny, we laughed for ages afterwards!

Vicky arrived and then we caught the train that Muhsine and Olivia coincidently were on!

When we finally got to L'Oreal HQ we where welcomed by Natalie Kitcher who then guided us to a Conference room filled with Lovely Sandwiches, Soft drinks and PERCY PIGS my fave! :)

The presentations were very informational and the story of how Maybelline started was oh so lovely!

We all had a really good time and were sent home with Two goody bags packed full of samples from their current products as well as the new Pulse perfection Vibrating mascara and a wide variety of the new Colour Sensationel Lipsticks! Awesomenessss!

Another great event that i'm incredibly happy to have been a part of!
Thank you to the organisers! :)
