I'm a bit late with this post but better late than never, hey? Last week I went to the Smashbox Bloggers evening at Boots in Shrewsbury - it was a great opportunity to learn about the brand that I use but didn't know much about, and also to meet the other bloggers of Shropshire/Shrewsbury!
The event was held by the gorgeous Charlotte and Kate - be sure to go and check them out if you're ever shopping in Shrewsbury. They gave great tips and advise and the best way to use the products to your advantage and to make the most of your skin type and were generally fantastic in selling the range and really confident and passionate when talking about their favourite items.
I've used Smashbox Mascara previously and I also have their Full Exposure pallet but other than that, I've never ventured into range as there seemed so much it was all a little confusing so the event was perfect for asking questions and getting the low down on each product and what it was for etc. I knew the primers were HUGE but again, there were so many of them I'd never looked into it to see what they were all for. The girls went through each one and explained what skin type they were for and what's best for different people. I took away a sample of the Pore Minimising Photo Finish as I have really oily skin and it only gets worse going into Summer... I used it Friday night for the first time getting ready for a night out and I can honestly say it's a life changer. I went out for the first time EVER without poweder all over my face and it was amazing. (I'll blog more about it later!)
It was also great to test the variety of BB/CC creams ready for Spring along with the different types of lip liners and eye products.
The event made for a great evening and a chance to relax with other bloggers and learn more about the famous brand. It's safe to say I made a couple of cheeky purchases on Boots.com when I got home so I'm sure I'll blog about those later! ;)
