Benefit "Chachatint Launch" Event Dublin

Yesterday I attended the Chachatint launch event in Brown Thomas Dublin. I heard about this event instore and I just had to go. Maggie & Annie Ford Danielson (daughters/nieces of  Benefit co-founders Jane and Jean Ford) were in attendence. Last Saturday, I reserved my spot by paying 30€ which was redeemable on all products and meant I could get my makeup done too.

On the day, I was booked in at 12.45pm as perusual I arrived early. I spent some of the time looking at some Benefit products and watching Maggie and Annie's makeup demonstrations which I found interesting.

Finally the time came to get my makeup done, my Benefit makeup artist, Sarah was lovely and helpful. We had such great chats about blogging and of course Benefit products.

When my makeup was done I was so delighted with it, Sarah did such a good job. I loved my eye makeup and I loved the way Chachatint looked on my cheeks:) I got to chat to Maggie and Annie for a few minutes they are so pretty and friendly. I talked to them about some of the products I was purchasing and their time in Dublin of all things. A picture of me and girls was taken by one of the lovely Benefit staff and it was put in a cute frame.

My makeup artist Sarah also took a picture for me with my digital camera. I loved how both pictures turned out.

I also met the lovely girls Kirstie and Aisling. I was so happy to finally get to meet them as I'm such a big fan of their blog I love it. I was also got to see some of the Irish Beauty bloggers I've met before and a few new ones.

 I purchased two products that I really liked that were used to get my makeup look.
 I was blown away with Chachatint. It's a very daunting shade in the bottle but such a nice shade on the lips and cheeks as it gives a health looking flush of colour. A little goes a long way with this product as it's very pigmented.

Sunday Funday Palette

 Another product I had my eye on is Maggie's Sunday Funday Palette.I fell in love with this as it has such wearable shadows and practically has everything you'd need in a palette. The artwork on this palette is gorgeous and was designed by Nikki Farquharson. In Ireland,Maggie's and Annie's palettes are exclusive to Brown Thomas Dublin and are limited edition so they are only available while stocks last.

 I also got a Benefit Goodie Bag which I was so chuffed about as it contained some pretty nice things.
