SO FAR, SO CHIC
Eyeko at Wenlock & Essex in Islington. After being ushered away from the main bar and upstairs we emerged into a full-on 80's disco complete with multicoloured light-up dance floor!
Having been handed a cherry bellini we were given an introduction to Eyeko's new makeup products (launching before Christmas) by founder Nina Leykind.
I was particularly impressed with the new powder blushers, which Nina explained were inspired by Nars Orgasm and Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks. The colours are dense with pigment and they give a subtle glow without being sparkly. Nina was wearing the colour below and it looked gorgeous on her olive skin. The new Liptastik Glossy Lip Pens also looked to pack a colour punch.

After our intro to the new products we were left to play with the various makeup goodies scattered everywhere, enjoy yummy cocktails, get manicures, hair and makeup done and even have our tarot read! LOLA's Bakery cupcakes were scarfed pretty quickly by those with a sweet tooth (or popped in one of the handy boxes provided and eaten on the train home à la me).
I got to meet up with some of my favourite bloggers and meet others that I've not met before and I left with a bulging goodie bag of makeup treats. Thanks so much to Eyeko for a fab evening and Happy 10th Birthday!
