bourjois photos & purchases and meeting llymlrs!

Oh. My. God.

What a day I've had - the best in ages!

So after (not much) persuasion, my Mum agreed to come with me to the Bourjois pop-up boutique in Shoreditch. I told her, 'but the makeup...the deals..the prices...please?!' and luckily she agreed. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - the setting was lovely, really modern and well laid-out, the people there were so lovely and I caught a glimpse of Jameela Jamil - what more could I ask for.

The first fifty people to arrive each day were guaranteed goody bags, and oh my they did not disappoint. The deal they had on was insane - 2 items for £9, 3 for £12 and 4 for £14. The first product I bought had an RRP of £10.99, so I could potentially buy another two products for just a pence over a pound. I must say - I didn't see many people leave with less than four products.

Bourjois pop-up boutique, located at the Beach Blanket Babylon restaurant in Shoreditch, near Shoreditch High St Overground station. 
The ridiculously amazing deals! 
Healthy Mix range of products consisting of the foundation/serum, powder and two concealers 
Effet 3D lip glosses 
Their nail polishes in every cute colour imaginable 
The blushes - really like how they set them out depending on colour and what skin tones they're designed to suit 
Got my makeup done & a photo taken - the album is on Bourjois' facebook page 
What I got for £14
healthy mix serum foundation in shade 52 - RRP £10.99
kabuki brush - RRP £4.99
khol & contour shadow & light double-ended eye pencil in 13 brun and caramel - shade was exclusive to the event but the noir and blanc version retails for £5.49
sweet kiss natural lipstick in 11 rose innocence - RRP £7.99
total cost would have been...*whips out calculator*...£29.46, saving £15.46
What my Mum got for £14
smoky eyes eyeshadow trios in 12 gris lilac and 04 nude ingenu - RRP £7.99 each
liner feutre in ultra black - RRP £6.99
sweet kiss lipstick in 76 rouge fashion - RRP £7.99
total cost would have been £30.96, meaning she saved £16.96

The goody bag! 
What was inside the goody bag?!
foaming cleansing cream
mini effet 3d gloss in shade 20 rose mythic
gloss bijou discoball in shade 07
little round pot in 92 gris paillettes
a light up compact mirror 
the pleasant surprise when I open the mirror and see how it lights up! 
The awesome packaging for the discoball gloss!

After going to Shoreditch, mum and I went to Oxford St as I wanted to go to Forever 21, as the bloggers were going to be there. On the way there we popped in Topshop to see the dress  but they didn't have my size in stock :( Hopefully I can order tonight. I met Lily of llymlrs in Forever 21 and she's lovely!

What can I say - I'm one happy girlie :)
