Trade Beauty Exhibition - ExCel February 2011

Hey ladies

My friend and I took ourselves off to the beauty exhibition in London yesterday and had a fantastic day. In case you are not sure what this exhibition is, it is basically a trade exhibition for anyone in the beauty industry.

I only purchase a couple of things and was lucky enough to have a few freebies thrown in. I have not tried them all yet but just wanted to show you what I got:

OMG this smells amazing. I have never heard of this range before but I think it comes from China. I only bought a shower gel and body lotion and it is heavenly. I believe they have spas in Harvey Nics and Park Lane so very high end so a definite indulgent treat - Lush.

OPI - Funky Dunky and Avojuice
I wanted this colour for sooo long (swatches to follow). I could have gone mad and bought tons of OPI polishes but was not sure what I had at home so I was good and only got the one.

Seche Vite - This to me is an essential product for anyone that paint's there nails. In my opinion it is the best topcoat on the market.
Cetuem Colour 261- I have never heard of this range before but I bought one polish and wished I had bought loads. This is defiantly in my top 5 all time fave polishes. See below for swatch. I have been looking online and this seems to be the cheapest place to buy them.

Cetuem 261 - Preedyyyyyyyy love it. A stunning dark pinky beige with gold shimmers

Essie Spring Collection - mini cube
I love these sets as you can get a lovely size but without paying the full price. If you are anything like me you have so many polishes you will NEVER get through them in your lifetime lol

Colours from left to right:
Coat Azure - Baby blue
Nice is Nice - Pastel Lilac
French Affair - Baby Pink
Topless and Barefoot - Pretty Nude

Lashes and lash applicator
I picked up a couple of different packs of lashes but the thing I wanted to show you was the lash applicator. Now I will be honest I don't have particularly high hopes for this but hey ho we have to try these things eh. When I have tried it I will give you a few report. Wish me luck!!

Carita - Freebie
I was a very lucky girl as the lovely lady from Carita gave me this little set free. I have not tried this properly yet but had a quick play with the oil and it is really pretty as it is a shimmer oil that you can put on your skin and on your hair, plus it also smells amazing. I was even more excited as this is the more sophisticated sister company for Decleor which I am a huge fan of.

Keraskin - Freebie
I had not heard of this before. I knew that Kerastin was a salon high end haircare range but did not know they had branched out into skincare. Again I was very lucky as we were given a sample to try. I have not had chance to give this a try this yet but will give you a review once I have had a play.

So there you have it. As you can see I was a pretty good girl. I am gutted now as I wished I had bought more things but I got slightly overwhelmed and could not carry it all as my friend bought loads!!! lol.

I am off to the Vitality Show in a couple of weeks which is at Earls Court. I went last year and had such a great day. If you get a chance go as it is a wicked day out with the girls.
