Cork Beauty Blogger Meetup Part 3 - Shiseido, Gosh And MeMeMe

Hey guys!

So this is the final installment of the Cork beauty blogger meetup. If you missed Part 1 or Part 2 click on the links to catch up! After Debenhams we all headed up to Costigans bar on Washington Street for our last few surprises. First we were treated to a skincare demo from Emma at Shiseido. She explained Shiseidos new products and we played with a few testers ourselves. The new IBUKI range are now available at Brown Thomas and they have a special offer running until Saturday 26th July where if you spend over €75 on Shiseido products you receive a full size cleanser which is pretty good. Shiseidos products are quite luxurious and feel amazing on the skin. I never knew that they are the oldest cosmetic house in the world, quite impressive! We were given a goodie bag packed full of lovely products to test out so I will be doing a review in the next few weeks and let you know what I think :)

Next the lovely Geraldine and Gráinne from GOSH Cosmetics talked us through some of the new products for the summer and showed us how to get a bronzed summer makeup look. They have excellent primers for different skin types and a new CC Cream which has a nice coverage. We were lucky enough to be able to pick out a product each to take home. I made a beeline for the Velvet Touch Anti Wrinkle Primer
 as I'd used it before and it's amazing! The new Lip Lacquers also look great. I'll need to pick up some and give them a go!

Last but certainly not least we headed upstairs to MeMeMe Cosmetics who had put a lot of effort into making the room look incredible! All the products looked so inviting, a beauty bloggers paradise! I had never tried anything from their range so I was excited to play and test out a few products. The Flawless Finish Cream Foundation really caught my eye so I will definitely be getting one as soon as my current foundation runs out. The Shimmer Stacks looked like great dupes for the Bobbi Brown ones and they also had Light Me Up Lip Gloss which are identical to the Color Your Smile Gloss. We also got a goodie bag with a highlighter and brow product inside! MeMeMe have lots of stockists in pharmacies nationwide so if you want to know if they are in your area let me know in the comments below or on Facebook and Twitter

Lovely MeMeMe goodies!!

As we were leaving, Sarah and Fiona gave us one last surprise with yet ANOTHER two bags filled with all sorts of beauty products! It was like Christmas! 

I had SUCH a great time and want to thank Sarah and Fiona again for everything. Ye really did go above and behind for us! :) 

Hopefully there will be another meetup after Christmas. I think everybody would be up for that! I will be doing reviews for the products we received and I will list in the post that it was from the meetup. I only ever do honest reviews so if I don't like something you will hear about it! 

Hope you enjoyed reading and I'll be back with some nail polish reviews in a few days.

Bye beauties!
