Bourjois Beach Blanket Babylon

After seeing this on A Daisy Chain Dream's blog, serendipity brought me to London on Friday 17th February. One gorgeous lunch at Ping Pong Southbank later, we were off the Shoreditch to see what Bourjois was up to. Although we were too late for the goodie bags, we did get to explore what resembled a Bourjois candy shop! 

The downstairs restaurant was selling cocktails and hot food, you can see the menu in one of the many pictures above! We headed upstairs into the main room for our makeovers and had a choice of hair, make up or nails. There was a bit of a wait, so we had a look around and started picking out make up, which was on 4 for £14! It was so much fun getting hands on with the products and you can see that everything was really well laid out. I eventually got a super quick makeover by a fantastic make up artist who used No 10 blusher, Smoky Eyes 4104 eyeshadow and Volume Clubbing mascara. I added the coral lipstick, Sweet Kiss Shine in no 74, Juicy tangerine. You can see the result!! 

We were also treated to a VitaCoco drink and I gave myself a manicure with So Lacque Ultra Shine Nail Polish in Orange Creation. 

I headed home with: Bourjois Blush in 10 Chataigne Doree, Sweet Kiss Shine in 74 Juicy Tangerine, Smoky Eyes in 4104 (brown) and Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer in 52.

There were a few teething problems on the day however. Mainly, it was because although there was a waiting list, we were told to grab a MUA rather than being put on it, meaning we had to watch like a hawk for a place and were usurped a few times! My friend also didn't get a manicure because the wait was so long but I gave her one instead!! 

If you're in London it's definitely worth a visit and it's a great fun concept.  Bourjois Beach Blanket Babylon is on until 20th February, for more info visit the Bourjous website here.
