We were introduced to the upcoming fall and winter collections of both brands, and got to sample the entire stock of their product range including nailpolish, skincare, makeup and more. They also had artists on hand if you wanted to get a make-over or have your nails perfectly manicured.
Lest we should go hungry there was a tasty smorgrasboard of snacks, treats and drinks on hand. The brownies were simply too good to pass up...yum!
The elevators were all different color schemes - this one was pink! How cute.
In the evening we were invited to the panorama suite on the rooftop with a beautiful view over Berlin, where we were treated to more food and an open bar with champagne whilst being serenaded by the piano man.
More food was consumed....
Bloggers get thirsty too...ahem! *hiccup*
It was a relaxing evening and it was so interesting to finally meet all the people behind the names, and to meet new ones that I haven't heard about before. It was quite a busy day and since I had been up since 5am due to catching an early flight to Berlin, I can't tell you how exhausted I was at the end and how well I slept in the gigantic bed.
The next day we had a lovely breakfast buffet but I was hardly able to get any food down somehow. I had planned a public meet-up with some of my viewers in Berlin at the Alexanderplatz, which is a big public meeting point in the centre of town. I handed out make-up to everyone who came, since we received so many goodies at the event and I wanted to share it around a bit. I had so much fun meeting my viewers and was surprised how many came. Thanks so much to all of you, it was really great to have a coffee at Starbucks with you. Now I'm really looking forward to the meet-up in New York!
Finally, here's some pictures hamming it up with Ebru from Ebruza's Beauty Lounge on Youtube. She is the most subscribed German-speaking beauty guru in Germany.
So that's it! I hope you enjoyed the pictures and video and were able to get a small impression of the overall event. Thank you so much to Catrice & Essence for the opportunity! I had a lot of fun. Chikarina also wrote a really great blog post about the event in German, if you want to see more pictures. She also did a much better job than me at swatching all the new products if you're interested.
