Its been a while since I last checked in with you all ... How are we all keeping? Good I hope.
So about 2 weeks ago I got tagged on facebook on a post on Moores of Coleraine page to a Benefit Masterclass happening on Thursday 28th April in Moore's where Amy Lou Faulkner (Benefit MUA) would be giving live Demos and reveling some make up secrets.
I had never met Amy but her make up is always AMAZING and I had wanted to get some new bits from Benefit so decided to go down. I went in to the Lovely Rebecca in Moores and booked my place. Another blogger in the area was going so me and her both headed down together :)
When we arrived we were showed up to the cafe area where all the Benefit girls and Amy Lou were setting up. There was drinks and nibbles and the girls made us feel very welcome. We decided to not take front row seat and opted to sit in the second row. Around 30 people showed up and Amy got started on her Candy Apple Lips demo.

Products Amy Lou used
Amy Lou talked us threw all the different products she was using and each product was passed around everyone so they could try it out on the back of their hand. I thought this was really good as its nice to feel the texture and consistency of the products before purchasing.
You could ask questions at any time throughout the demo and Amy was very good at explaining everything she used on the model.
The Demo lasted about 40 minutes and after we went down to the Benefit stand on the ground floor where you could try all the products, get advice, shade matching and buy anything you wanted.
I had been looking at the hello flawless oxygen wow foundation for some time and got shade matched by Michelle from Belfast Benefit, who was down helping on the night. I really liked the feel of the foundation on my skin and decided to go for it. I also had seen Amy Lou used the Bene tint and decided to go for the purple shade.... Lolli tint. I also treated myself to the lolli balm to accompany the tint.
What I treated myself too :)
I have to say how lovely and helpful Michelle was, I sometimes feel awkward and intimidated around some of the sales girls but honestly Michelle's costumer service was outstanding, she put me at ease and made picking what items I wanted soo easy.
Everyone who attended the event got a free goodie bag which included samples of products and a lovely Benefit passport cover.
I really enjoyed the event and was very lucky to be able to attend as Belfast and Coleraine were the only two places Amy Lou visited to do her masterclass in Northern Ireland!

I really hope Moores hold more masterclasses like this one as I had a really enjoyable evening and learnt so many tips and tricks!
