I was so excited to get to take part in this event for multiple reasons. For one, I got to try out all the products I'd had my eye on for months and have them explained to me by company representatives. For two, I got to peruse around my favourite online shop in person (no shipping charges!), and for three, I got to meet the lovely Garcy Fry - cofounder of Eco Diva Beauty who is quite possibly one of the kindest human beings I've ever met.
As soon as I sat down in Ashley's chair, she made me feel comfortable and was able to relate to me on a more personal level. She was genuine, had a great smile, and genuinely seemed interested in meeting me - a great start to my first facial that wasn't in a third world country (the Philippines, if you're wondering). She reassured me that it was totally fine that I had come in with makeup on since I had just finished work and began to ask me about my skin type, common problems I have, and what I want to achieve with my skin.
After explaining to her my issues and my main concerns, she got to work in applying products she thought would work for me and shared with me her own stories of how these have helped her skin.
What Ashley Used
Makeup with Shirley
After my facial with Ashley, I moved onto Shirley's chair where she also began with asking me questions about my makeup routine, what I like to wear, and what a typical makeup day for me is like. I explained to her that I don't really like doing the smokey eye thing and if I am ever to wear eye makeup, it's typically a cat eye with bold brows. When I really like to amp things up, I'll also add in a bold lip. At those two words, you could see the spark light up in Shirley's eyes - I could tell she had something good planned.
What Shirley Used
At this point I was super excited to start perusing through all the makeup on the table and find the perfect "throw in your bag, just in case" item. What I found was perfect - the Nudist Colorbalm stick in #2. In the tube, it is a dark, mysterious, potentially scary for some lip colour but when you apply it, it's the perfect sheer colour that's great to throw on if you have an impromptu dinner or a night out with girlfriends. It has definitely won me over and earned a permanent spot in my purse.
