|Myself, Becky and Sarah after our Benefit makeovers!|
Last week, I attended to oh-so fabulous Benefit and Diet Coke 'Get Glam' launch event in the Dylan hotel. It was jam-packed full of makeup artists, beauty nerds and of course, us flock of bloggers! It was a fantastic afternoon, filled with girly gossip and makeup treats everywhere. I've been a fan of Benefit cosmetics for years now, so I'm always super excited to attend their events. Meeting the Benefit team was great, they were all so friendly, and I learned some amazing makeup tips from them throughout the afternoon. Even though I'm a regular-Coke kinda gal, I sipped 3 (yes, 3) cans of Diet Coke and some delicious bubbly.. I stayed for quite a while, as you can tell. The Dylan hotel is just such a swanky venue, I couldn't leave in a rush..

The Benefit team, made over three of us bloggers, each of us sporting a different look inspired by a Diet Coke girls. I was lucky enough to get my makeup done, by Benefit's head makeup and trend artist, Lisa Potter-Dixon! She gave me a fabulous smokey-eyed rock chick look, inspired by Irene the Diet Coke rock chick. Lisa tried some gorgeous Benefit products on me, such as the new 'They're Real!' mascara and Benefit facial moisturiser (Lisa shared a super secret makeup tip with me, whilst applying the look - apply some moisturiser on to the palms of your hands, rub them together and gently pat on to the face over your foundation. It gives you a glowy and healthy look instantly)!

I met some really great bloggers, who I've been talking to for a quite a while over the net. We were all delighted with how the event turned out (Thinkhouse - you've nailed it again!), and we were even more excited when we were given a box full of Benefit goodies and three of the limited edition Get Glam cans of Diet Coke. The contents of the box include the new 'They're Real!' mascara, the 'POREfessional' primer, three tints and three perfumes; it's so overwhelming to receive ALL of these at once. I'm dying to try all of my new treats out - I already have the beloved ChaChaTint, so I'll be giving this new one away in a giveaway soon, so keep an eye out! If you want a review on any of the products, leave a comment to let me know.
