|Whoo, I love Benefit!
We were greeted at the entrance to the restaurant by some fabulously enthusiastic ladies from Benefit, Jo, their social media manager, and Claire, the event co-ordinator for Scotland and the NE. We were offered beautiful flutes of champagne and some tasty looking canapés (the smoked salmon scones were particularly yummy!) before we sat down and got to know some of the other #bbloggers who had made it to the event too. It was lovely to meet Catrine from UnnakedNails, and lots of other girls who gave me their names and blogs (I'm going to do a little following session soon!).

Claire then had us all stand up for the FakeUp demonstration. FakeUp is Benefit's new hydrating concealer that's launching nationwide on the 30th of March, and will be available in three shades, Light, Medium and Dark, priced at £18.50. It's an incredibly innovative little product encased in the most perfect packaging (loving the pink damask style on the silver tube). It provides up to 6 hours of hydration, and I can definitely vouch, having tried it at the event, that it felt very moisturising under my eyes - goodbye dry dark circles! I'm going to do a more in depth review soon when I've had the chance to try it out for a longer period of time, I've just put my face on this morning and used the Medium shade and so far I am absolutely loving it!
Benefit are also celebrating the 1 year anniversary of their wonderful Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation, another product I adore, and there were chances to win some bottles last night during a little quiz. Well done to those who won something!
I had such a wonderful time with the Benefit ladies last night, and meeting so many fabulous #bbloggers from Newcastle and the surrounding area. As I said before some of use were a little bit nervous but all worries were put aside when we realised what a friendly bunch we all are! That's one of the reasons why I love the #bbloggers community so much!

To the girls who have an invite for the other Benefit FakeUp events further down south have an amazing time! (I know they're going to Leeds, London, and most exciting of all my little home city of Plymouth, down in Devon. I wish I could attend that one too, it'd be lovely to meet some Devon, Somerset and Cornwall #bbloggers too - so holla at me if you're living down there!) There will be lots of laughs, because as Benefit say, 'Laughter is the best cosmetic, so grin and wear it!'
Thank-you so much Benefit for inviting me <3
