Glamour Beauty Festival, London

On the 11th March Sophie Kate and I headed to the Saatchi Gallery on London’s King’s Road for the Glamour Beauty Festival.

Sophie won tickets on Pixi’s instagram competition and chose to take me along, so I was ecstatic. Not just to go to the event, but to finally get to meet Sophie!

The weather was fantastic, and promised to be around 17c which made choosing an outfit a lot easier – no need for the bulky coat!

Our slot was in the morning so we arrived and got our wrist bands. The event covered three floors, with treatment stands in every room. In the first room was OGX and GHD. We grabbed some free samples of shampoo and watched people getting their hair braided and curled on both sides of the room.

There were also a few good selfie opportunities!

Across the hall was skincare, featuring fresh and Pixi. In here you could get a luxurious facial from any of the brands.

Then to makeup, one floor up and as well as shopping for makeup you could have your makeup and eyebrows done professionally or get a manicure – all for free.

The top floor was the theatre for talks and though we didn’t have time to attend one, we still wanted to pick up our goodie bags – worth a whopping £190!

The event was great and there was a lot on offer, if you were prepared to line up for a while. I could imagine if you turned up hair undone and makeup free you could leave looking ready to attend London Fashion Week! Personally I’m not a fan of treatments, I like to do all those things myself, but you could really get bang for your ticket price if you spent the whole day there.

It was an awesome morning, and I’m really pleased I got to go! Thanks to Pixi Cosmetics for the tickets, and to Sophie for bringing me along! Same time next year?

    1. It was good fun! It was the first event like this I’ve ever been too and I got really taken aback when people were asking ‘are you blogging the event’ because I had a camera around my neck – and I didn’t feel awkward saying ‘yes’! I can’t wait to do another one 🙂

      1. Oh wow! It seems like an alternate universe where everyone blogs and just gets that you absolutely MUST take a photo of your coffee in that.exact.spot. because the lighting is just perfect haha! I can’t wait to go to an event at some point, just for the experience!
