The Christmas beauty a'fair in pictures

My dears, finally i attended a makeup fair!

It’s no longer news that i missed the last fair (LMUF) and that i was totally heart-broken about that….. so last Sunday, i knew that even rain would not have stopped me from attending the Christmas beauty a’fair.  I had no one to accompany me, and i didn’t know how to get there but i just entered my car and drove off to Ikeja knowing that somehow, i WOULD get to the venue. Thankfully, there was no traffic from Festac to Ikeja, so i got there in record time.... it wasn't hard to find afterall.
 





When i got there, guess who the first people i saw were…….Sisi Yemmie and Bobo Yommie in the flesh!!! Choi….see my excitement…..as in i totally didn’t expect to see them there.  She really is a pleasant person, and she said she loved my makeup *bats eyelashes*
 
On my way inside, i got myself a  parolz ‘City card’ which is supposed to get me discounts at some specific stores all year long (well, we’ll see how that goes).
 I got inside the venue and it was like a candy store! Only that instead of candies, there was makeup everywhere!!! Oh goody! So many makeup stands, i didn’t know where to begin.

 I noticed that there were POS machines at virtually every stand, so i said a silent prayer of thanks to God that i left my debit cards at home. If i had them with me, i would have done serious damage to my account….how would i have explained to Dindu and Mishmish why they wouldn’t get to eat chicken this Christmas? 
I’m sorry, i wasn’t able to take correct pictures of every stand ‘cos i was soo excited scurrying from one stand to the other and chatting away….but i promise that the next fair, i would deliver. Have i mentioned that i met Yemisi of N’sure beauty? See ehn…..pictures don’t do some people justice….That chic is beautiful! Her eyes are really white and pretty and she's such a lively person….a great dancer too.
I met Funke of ‘Gifty’s daughter’…..she has a lovely smile and was nice to me. I also met Gbemisola of ‘Hegai & Esther’ and Tara of ‘Taries world’…. beautiful people!

I also met some of my wonderful readers, it was really a pleasure getting to see you all. Much love!


WHAT I BOUGHT……
I finally got myself Maybelline’s’Baby lips’ lip balm, and ‘Define-a-lash’ mascara. I’ve always wanted a mixing palette, and i found one at ‘Hegai & Esther’ stand….yippie! Finally, i got the Ben nye banana powder ( shamefully puts on LATSMA uniform), and then a Kayge cosmetics lipgloss in ‘pink diamond’.







I din’t overspend, and i’m proud of myself for that…..well, if i had gone with my cards, it would have been another story.

Thanks to POPS concept for such an opportunity. I’ll definitely be attending next year’s fair, and i won’t be going alone.
