Olympia Beauty 2013

Hello Peeps, 

 Now, I am sure there are many people reading this now who attended the Olympia Beauty Event and thought it was fabulous but for me it was a huge disappointment. You all know me, I hate to write a negative post but this has to be done as other wise these events won't improve. So, let's set the scene, Sis and I arrive at Olympia having travelled a good 1.5 hrs by train to get there and are greeted by huge heaving crowds of pretty peeps - so far all looking positive..but once we got inside it took a slightly peculiar turn... The first stall we walked to was a discount stall, fair enough lots of bargains, until on closer inspection you note that all of the nail varnishes had separated and the quality of the stock was a tad dubious. So on we marched and saw lots of other stalls selling similar bits and bobs and also large scale equipment for salon use but here is where it got even more odd. Not one large scale make up brand (other than nails i.e. OPI). You name it I couldn't see them - MAC, Chanel, Dior, MUA, Sleek, Smashbox, Revlon... I also love small new to market brands but to be honest there were very few of these on show too!

All I did notice was that there were a lot of nail products and the few large scale brands which were more skin care focused i.e Dermalogica were so busy the queues were ridiculous... think Alton Towers long.

So Sis and I thought in unison..let's head to the Kings Road! Which was truly fabulous as always...

So pretty peeps, if you know of any large beauty events that ARE fab please let us know :)

Lots of love
