Catrice and Essence Event Plus a GIVEAWAYsobota, oktober 18, 2014
I recently had the honour to attend my first ever blogger event, which was hosted by Cosnova team, so the people responsible for two popular brands in Europe: Essence and Catrice. Since I have only a few of my pictures of the actual event because honestly, I was more interested in the vast amount of makeup and cake pops than taking pictures (man, those were some good cake pops!) as well as I don't own an actual camera but merely a smartphone, I'm using some of the press pictures. However, my fellow bloggers really outdid themselves with the coverage of the event in their own posts on the blogs, so here are the links to those if you want to learn more: Taya (she also posted a picture of her with Sara from Passing Fancy and me if you want to see my OOTD), Uniqapoly, Passing Fancy, Cherry Colours, Ajda & Tjaša Beauty Corner, (next few are in Slovene) Get them Curious, Viva La Vida, Ajda's post on Etiketa, Parokeets and Tinna's Pink Place.
(yes, I'm deliberately looking at the floor because I felt so awkward taking a picture at that moment. On my left are Polona from Uniqapoly and Tamara from Cherry Colours, on my right is Saša a.k.a. Nihrida and Sandra from AnGel BeAuTy. Pictures by Žiga Intihar)
Cosnova team prepared and executed an amazing event, they honestly outdid themselves and I was utterly shocked when, as we were leaving, they handed each two full bags of their newest products. I really love that they prepared an event only for bloggers, I have in fact been avoiding most events for the reasons it was hosted for other press as well (yes, I'm aware I'm weird), but I felt a lot less intimidated by the whole thing with other bloggers around, most of whom I've been familiar with for years or at least with their blogs (you may already know that I try to keep as up-to-date list of Slovene beauty blogs as possible). It was so wonderful to meet them, I don't think anyone has been so nice to me ever as those amazing girls and I think we all enjoyed the event immensely. I think all the others, who already wrote about the event covered everything already, so I won't bore you again with the details.
Here are the goodies we so generously received. I'll do a sort of an New In type of posts separate for Catrice and Essence as well as later do reviews of some products that I feel need a proper review. I've been working on the New In posts for the last two day and they are almost ready, so expect them shortly.
Since there is a lot of stuff and I have several duplicates of the products as I have been shopping the new products before (some have already been reviewed and some will be in the future, but they are all in the most recent New In), I will be giving some of the products away to thank you, dear readers, for reading my blog, subscribing, commenting and all that jazz. I decided on two goody bags with an equal amount of Catrice and Essence products. All the product will also be featured in the next two posts, so you'll have a better idea of what you're getting. Entering is just a matter of filling out the Rafflecopter forms and I decided to do it internationally, even though the shipping costs gave me a tiny heart attack, but I know so many of you want to try Catrice and Essence products. You can chose either of the prizes or both. One winner will be drawn for each prize. The giveaway is international and will end in one week on 26. October 2014 at 00:00/12:00 A.M. (CEST). The winner will be contacted via e-mail and then sent the prize. If the winner doesn't respond in two (2) days, a new winner will be chosen.
