The 'Deen Scene: CARGO Blogger Event

A note from Joelle...

♫ ♪Young and Beautiful - Lana Del Rey♫ ♪

Last Thursday evening, I went along to a beauty blogger event in Debenhams. It was a great blogger meetup at the newest counter, CARGO. This is a Canadian brand that has opened it's first ever UK store right here in Aberdeen. I was not familiar with this brand before this event, but I left having learnt quite a bit and was excited to try what I had bought (and have a cheeky rummage through the goody bag!).
The NEBE Bloggers!!

The CARGO beauticians were incredibly friendly and got stuck in straight away with makeovers and tutorials. I went bare-faced (just a bit of primer) to make try the new products first hand. I honestly didn't think that there would be much make-up in my dark shade, but the lovely beautician knew her stuff and found the perfect match for me in seconds. I was so amazed and the foundation and blusher coverage was so light and smooth!
I purchased an amazing 2-in-1 blusher and lipstick in a rosy berry colour called 'Santorini'. I am obsessed with it now!
I am also impressed that they have colours for a huge varieties of skin tones. I was matched straight away with a foundation, and it didn't even have to be mixed with another shade (typical make-up procedure for darker lasses!). The products are also really affordable, which was great.
Very helpful!
The foundations are in pouches (inspired by Capri Sun drinks!) and I  did think it odd at first, but I now realise how practical it is. You can squeeze out every drop the of foundation you paid or and it's travel-size!
This is the lightest foundation I have every had on my face - I could hardly feel it, and I must admit, my skin looked pretty good. It was not oily at all, which is hard to find in a foundation.
2-in-1 concealer and foundation!
Many thanks to Laura from Liparazzi for organising yet another brilliant event (the nibbles were great too!). A big thanks goes to Aberdeen Debenhams and the CARGO ladies too for all their help. They were very generous with their goody-bags as well (I feel very spoilt!).  It was great to meet some new faces and some NEBE bloggers I met last week. Loving our community and will miss it when I leave uni in two weeks!
