So last thursday, was the annual Debenhams VIP beauty event (well, it's done twice a year but I have only been to the ones held in winter)
I went for the first time last year and I really enjoyed it so I made sure to go again but with a friend. Makes it so much more fun when you have a shopping buddy to go with ^^
As soon as I found out on social media that the tickets for the event were on sale I made sure to pop in soon to make sure me and my friend got a place.
Some bits were different this year and actually better! On arrival we showed out tickets to the front and was given a special wristband to wear for the day along with a quiz to fill in to be entered into a raffle to win some prizes. We were then given our drinks, we opted for orange juice in champagne glasses lol there was also some nibbles to grab and it was of course unlimited if you showed your wristband.
We was told that the first goody bag was given after a purchase, so me and my friend went straight to the Too Faced counter to buy some make-up minis. I went for their infamous lip injection extreme which I wanted to try for quite some time and this was the perfect time to grab one since I would get £5 off and 15% off of it too! we was then given our goody bags which was full of perfume samples, a body cream and a face primer.
There was a schedule for the whole afternoon and evening and you were allowed to pick which masterclasses you would like to attend. We attended three: Chanel, Benefit Cosmetics and Too Faced Cosmetics all of which were nice and informative. After the Chanel masterclass we was given a goody bag which was a very generous one too. It contained a CC cream, a foundation, a serum and a tinted moisturiser. I know I will be trying it all out.
The evening was very relaxed and we found ourselves going back for more snacks and drinks and talk about nothing but make-up and the latest releases. A perfect day to unwind and to spoil yourself with beauty products and buy at discounted prices.
We left just around 9 pm and we truly enjoyed ourselves, picked up some important tips from the masterclasses, bought some treats and enjoyed the unlimited snacks and drinks. Thank you Debenhams for this lovely day, we felt very spoilt.
Have you been to a VIP beauty event before?
