Irish Beauty Show 2013 haul

So The Irish Beauty Show was on at the RDS Simmons Court from the 3rd to the 4th of March. I headed down on Monday to see what bargains I could find. Here is what I got and some swatches.

I came across a stand selling a brand of tan which I never heard of before. Maria who was working there was lovely and very helpful she told me a bit about the product and swatched a little on my arm. Its contains aloe vera and vanilla orchid so it moisturises and has a nice smell. Its a Northern Irish product from Co. Down which DO NOT test on animals which is always a plus. I got a 150ml bottle for €10. I will be doing a full review on this product and see it how compares to my trusty Wow Brown.

Left to Right - bBold in medium to dark. Wow Brown in medium to dark as well.

I have seen a few videos of gossmakeupartist on youtube. He highly recommend's about Make-up Atelier so I purchased two of their foundations €20 each plus an eye-shadow palette €22. I regret not getting more products to try out now because these 3 are amazing, the pigments are outstanding for the price.

 T03 natural 

Left to Right - Waterproof gel foundation in ocre clair & waterproof liquid foundation in FLW5.

I only picked up 4 brushes €4 each because I am waiting on a brush order at the moment plus I also have too many brushes :)

Top to Bottom - Royal & Langnickel Super Eye Fluff C448, Crown Brush, Crown Brush C200 Deluxe Crease and Royal & Langnickel P155 Eye Fluff.

Bourjois had a stand with 5 products for €10. BARGAIN! I picked up 1 blusher, 3 eye-shadow's and a foundation. See above.

Left to Right - 85 sienne blusher, 04 noir precieux, 03 and 01

Dermalogica had a stand where you could get your face mapped, determine what skin type you are as well as give information about it and provide you a few samples. A lovely girl called Aoife, working on the stand told me I had dehydrated skin, she went through all the products and how to use them. Then I was given a nice little package with samples to try out -

Overall I enjoyed the day and got a few goodies. The next show is on around the end of September/ beginning of October. If you want me to review any of the products above let me know.
