Pretty London: The Eyeko Event

Good morning everyone!

On Saturday, London town was hit by an influx of bloggers, as we all made our way to Islington to celebrate Eyeko's 10th birthday. The venue was the Wenlock & Essex Bar on Essex Road:


I met up with the lovely Leanne, Steph & Maxi at Angel tube station, then we made our way to the venue, where we met lots of other lovely blogging ladies before we were shown into our room for the evening.

Once we'd been ticked off on the guest list, we met Ling, and left little messages for the Eyeko team:


 After we'd been shown in, we took a seat and met Nina, the founder of Eyeko. She was absolutely lovely, and told us all about the new products that were soon to be launched.


 This is one of the new range of blushes that are due out between now and Christmas:


I think these are really clever, as not only do you get 2 shades, beneath the blush is a handy mirror and small brush for on-the-go application.


We also saw the lovely new lipgloss collection which I fell in love with when I swatched them!


Next up was the Liptastik Glossy Lip Pen, which I think had to be my favourite new items! There were a gorgeous range of shades, and the best thing is, they don't need sharpening :D

 

 If you've tried Eyeko's Fat Balms before, then listen up - they're coming back! The packaging has changed and there are some pretty new colours on offer. I can't wait for these to become available online!


After we'd spoken to Nina, we grabbed ourselves some Eyeko cocktails and went to mingle. It was really nice to be able to meet lots of other bloggers and put faces to the names :)

  The cherry bellinis were uber yummy! Hello champagne!


Max and Nina, founders of Eyeko, welcomed us all to the party:


There was a body art competition using Eyeko's Graffiti Eye Liner Pens. Check out Klaire's amazing art on Leanne's arm:


Klaire and Leanne won the body art competition, bagging themselves a Spice Girls CD, signed by Emma Bunton.

During the evening, Nina & Max spoke to us about the Ambassador scheme, and got 3 of their top 4 bloggers to say a quick few words:
 
 L-R: Nina, Gemma, Larissa, Ling and Max

I had a great time, and it was really nice to be able to meet lots of bloggers in the flesh! A big hello to Leanne, Hannah, Klaire, Fei, Milly, Maxi and Steph!

And a huge thank you to Eyeko for inviting me!

We were really lucky to be given goody bags too, which I'll post about another day this week :)
