I promised I would blog about the make-up goodies I picked up at BITE (Beauty Industry trade event) last weekend.
My first stop was the Boujois discount stand. They had a great offer on…one I could not resist :) I choose 5 items for €10. They didn’t have the full range by any means and to be honest the baskets got a little repetitive.
The women huddling around the stand were viciously elbowing others out of the way. Sale behaviour never ceases to amaze me – maybe it’s just me, but there is never an appropriate time to be physically aggressive. Some of these ‘ladies’, and I use that term loosely, seemed to disagree and felt that discounted Bourjois items were worth fighting for. I think not.
Anyway, I politely choose these five items; Healthy Mix Concealer, Ultra Care Mascara, Healthy Mix Foundation, Eyeshadow in Vert Petalant and Cream Eyeshadow in Gold.
Next it was the Crown stand. They had a huge variety of brushes on sale. Having never tried any of their products but not needing more brushed I selected two that were different to any in my collection.
Crown Brushes: Tiny eyeshadow brush, bronzer brush
There were quite a few Salon type make-up suppliers there. Generally I find these make-up brands are disappointing. I was drawn to a sale stand by a brand called Karaja. I have never even heard of them but an eyeshadow and a gloss caught my eye.

This is all I bought! Nothing else appealed to me. I couldn’t believe that I wasn’t even tempted by the Jessica nail stand. It was a good Sunday morning but I don’t think I would be in a rush back. The best part of my day was actually the amazing Full Irish Breakie I had in a restaurant on the seafront after the event.
