(If I could have a display like this in my home... that would be fantastic)
Media Makeup is in fact a makeup school where students can obtain Certificates through the range of courses that they offer.
I made sure that I arrived extra early as I didn't want a case of deja vu happening. If you remember my Beauty Conference post last year, the event was held at this exact place and I happened to arrive late!
This was my outfit by the way - a green polka dot dress:
(SNSD poster on my wall is always great inspiration for looking good)
We sat around a large table (same setting as a meeting) and Bec, the director of Media Makeup, introduced the MUFE brand by giving us some background information on how it all started and how it has become the brand it is today.
What I love about blogger meets:
it's appropriate and normal to have your phones out while someone is talking.
We watched a promo clip of MUFE's Rouge Artist Intense Lipsticks
As well as introducing MUFE, Bec also spoke about the skincare line, Embryolisse and the brand for tools, Seki Edge:
We also got to have a look at some gorgeous false eyelashes by the brand 'Blync'
Next we got to see a makeup demo by Bec where she used one of the Media Makeup students as the model. A very gorgeous model too I must say :)
Firstly Bec removed the makeup that the model was already wearing
And begun sharing techniques and tips for each step with applying makeup
While this was happening, MUFE products were passed around for us to swatch. Here are my swatches:
One of their most popular products - MUFE HD Foundation. Smoothes on so nicely on the back of my hand
Here is the finished look on the model. Strikingly bold eyes and ready for a night out!
Afterwards we had the chance to purchase any MUFE products with a 20% off one-day only discount for us bloggers but being the good girl that I am, I resisted and didn't make any purchases :)
We were lucky enough to receive a small goodie bag each though! It was very generous of Media Makeup.
Consisted of two full-sized products and one small-sized one
MUFE HD Cream Blush - a little goes a long way as it's super pigmented!!
MUFE Uplight Face Luminizer Gel. The samples were way lighter than the one I got. Mine is quite dark! Can you see how shimmery it is?
The cutest lippie ever! I prefer the shade in the tube more than the swatch :( That pale pink by itself won't look that great on my lips. I reckon it'll clash with my skin tone, so I'll make sure to use it with another lipstick.
I had an awesome time and I want to thank Media Makeup and Bec for having us once again for a blog meet. It's the perfect location too because it's central which makes it quite easy for us to find and make our way there. And of course, big thanks to the ABBM organisers for putting together this event.
Hope that there weren't too many pictures. I only selected the best and grouped them into collages where possible. Thank you for reading and I should be back with a new post next week if I'm not too busy with uni work. Fingers crossed :)
Questjen of the week:
'Try before you buy' - a must or are you okay with buying without trying?
Sometimes us beauty bloggers like to purchase products without testing beforehand so that we can do a full trial and write up a review in great detail.
My answer: It is not always a must.
Most of the time I purchase products purely because I am curious and want to try things out right after opening. Testers are great however you don't always get the most out of them i.e. they run out, someone's used them before, they may have been tampered with etc. Some products don't even have testers, such as mascaras. With foundation/concealers, it is definitely a must and I find that it is important to swatch!
