Beauty Chat LIVE!

On Tuesday evening I took myself off to Space NK in windy old Brighton, for an evening full of beauty talk, champagne, sweet treats and two of the loveliest ladies in YouTube. 

Bloggers & YouTubers, Lily Pebbles & Vivianna Does Make Up, took their popular 'Beauty Chat' videos on tour in Space NK's across the UK. It seemed to be a massive success if you ask me! It was so lovely to have a browse through all the fabulous skincare, make up and haircare, chat to beauty experts and talk to Anna and Lily in a lovely relaxed environment. 

Of course, I took my camera to take a few snaps for a blog post. I also spent a little more money than planned... but I'll get onto that in a bit! 

The girls started off the evening with a Q&A from Twitter and a few questions from us there. In response to 'How did you manage beauty blogging and university' the answer is... 'Just don't buy books!' Anna's words... not mine! We all had a laugh and she took her words back pretty quickly when the girl who asked was an English Student! (But seriously, she's totally right, in most cases, they're all in the library!)

I had a lovely chat with Anna & Lily, it was so nice to meet them. We talked singing, BIMM, skincare and their Teenage Throwback playlist, which sounds right up my street. Anything that contains 'Thong Song' - Sisqo has gotta be good, right? They said they wanted to hear me sing... so if you're reading this, this is my YouTube channel!

Beauty experts were dotted around the whole store ready to help with any questions you had about products. I was helped by a lovely lady called Lesley on the Space NK Pro Team who found me the perfect products, with recommendations from Lily too.

On to the spending. 

I went with the intention to spend £10, as our £15 ticket was redeemable on a product we purchased, so I'd be getting a nice £25 product. I actually ended up spending £37... just to get this incredible goody bag. I regret nothing. The goody bag must be worth a hell of a lot, there's so many amazing products in there. I'll start with the bits I picked out first...

Dark under-eye circles are pretty much the bane of my life. I know they're not the end of the world, but I'm super conscious of them so I want to try and get rid of them. I picked up the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado & the Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in Custard to bust those bad boys! I then grabbed Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat... One - to get me over the spending limit for the goody bag... and Two - because who doesn't love 'fast dry' when it comes to nails!

Now onto the goody bag. Just look at the contents of it. There was no way I could say no to this, so many products I've only dreamed of owning on my student budget! This also means I now have lots of new lovely products, big and small, to review on here!
