The incredibly kind Mr Makeup invited both Kate (from British Sparkle) and I to the product launch for his very very exciting new brand, ‘Makeup Revolution’. Neither of us live near London, which is where it was, but it was such a fabulous opportunity that both of us made big journeys in order to be able to attend – And I think I can say, on both of our accounts, that it was well worth making the effort for.
You’ll remember I already posted about the brand last Friday, when they launched their website early, as I just wasn’t able to contain my excitement (You can see my previous post HERE) The, new, website is here: http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com/ – I couldn’t help but order some products even before I went to the launch, either, as I was worried they would go out of stock (and it looks like there’s a distinct possibility there will be some sell out’s based on how much they’ve sold thus far!)
I was also lucky to have a mini make-over and had some eye liner applied, plus some contour, highlight and lip gloss. The products all felt wonderful when they were applied and the look was beautiful. It was lovely to sit and have a quite little pamper, too, and everyone we spoke to at the launch was just so lovely and incredibly enthusiastic about the products – Fantastic feeling to be in a room of people who’re all as excited about something as you are!
Before we left Kate and I were lucky enough to meet, and have a good chat, with Mr Makeup himself with whom we’ve been in contact for a while and who we’ve become friends with; so lovely to finally meet him and discover that he’s as nice in person as he has been during our contact online. His enthusiasm was electric and utterly contagious, I can promise you, this is a brand to watch! Lastly, we met one of Mr Makeup’s team member’s who was also as lovely as we’d always hoped; fantastic to finally meet her too. And, of course, we had a quick snuffle from the company pug who was just as cute as pictures had previously promised!
As we left we were given a sleek, black gift bag with a mix of products for us to look at and trial and share with you all – I’ll show you them here and then I’ll get swatches and first impressions up in the coming days/weeks.
