The Olympia Beauty Show + NYX Haul

This past weekend was an extremely busy one! On Sunday, the fiancé and I headed to the famous Wedding Fair at the Excel centre for all the wedding inspiration we could get and may I say what an amazing event it turned out to be. But, my weekend didn't end on Sunday, as I took the Monday off to visit the Olympia Exhibition Centre for the Olympia Beauty Show and the Beauty Blogger Awards.

Olympia Beauty Show

I got to Kensington Olympia station nice and early and headed to the show with my freshly printed “Press” badge. I wasn't too sure what to expect given this was my first time visiting, but as soon as you walk in you are in for a treat. With so much stuff to see, from some brands I had never heard of, to big names like OPI, NYX, China Glaze, Benefit; I really did not even know where to start.

Being the shameless person that I am, I did accept free trials/samples on pretty much everything I was offered, only to turn around and not actually buy the product, #sorrynotsorry. Although, I did rather like this fibre mascara duo I tried but thought I would have a look around to see if anything better came up and now I regret not buying it nor do I remember the name of the brand. Oh well...

Everywhere you turned there was something different to look at; “celebs”, body-painting competitions, teeth whitening, you name it! This place was heaven on earth for beauty enthusiasts.

I knew NYX had a stand, so I of course got me some goodies especially since they were offering 10% off at the show!

Blotting Powder Light £9.45 // Lip Primer Nude £5.40 // Stay Matte But Not Flat Liquid Foundation Ivory £5.40 // Studio Perfect Primer Lave £9 // Matte Lipstick Alabama £5.85 // Soft Matte Lip Cream Monte Carlo £4.95 // Eyeshadow Base White Pearl £4.95 // Loose Pearl Pigments Nude and Pearl £3.15 each

Olympia Beauty Show

I did get a little carried away but these were some of the products I've been wanting for quite some time and I now regret not purchasing more of the Soft Matte Lip Creams as the formula is heavenly and so pigmented. Full reviews on some of the above soon!

In the building next door, the Bloggers event was happening and the workshop I attended led by Nikki Taylor and Tracey McAlpine was so interesting and focused on how blogging and beauty is for all, regardless of your age. Blogging should be all about breaking the rules and these ladies certainly know how to do that! 

Olympia Beauty Show

All in all, this was a great day out despite the horrendous rain, and whilst I wish I could have attended the Blogger Awards ceremony on Sunday, I got to see and get all I wanted on Monday instead. I will definitely be returning next year if Olympia Beauty will have me again!

Did you attend this year? What did you think and what have you purchased?

  42. I was there on the Sunday & it was my first time at Olympia Beauty. Such an overwhelming place, I didn't even know where to look as there was so much. I wanted to pick up some NYX makeup but the queue was horrendous so I left it and luckily enough they gave us a goodie bag at the awards x
