Last stop… Clarins! The lovely ladies at Vellvette (the folks behind The Vellvette box) held an event to launch the new Clarins BB Cream. There was some pampering, some trials, & we bought a few things too.
This was the first event I went to by the Vellvette team & I must say I really enjoyed it. They were all extremely friendly & warm & made sure we were comfortable. The Clarins sales assistants, not so much. I know they’re sales assistants & all but the one assigned to my mom was so f*cking pushy. She kept insisting that we buy both the serums (at around 4.5k each) & even when we agreed to buy one she wouldn’t quit. We had to gently tell her no for about 10 minutes (I’m thinking we should have screamed instead?) & after that she started sulking so badly. What a sour experience. Despite liking Clarins a lot I feel like never buying from them again because they hire horrible people like that.
So what do you think of the haul? Any favorites?
Regarding the talk about this becoming a beauty blog, I was kidding, but only sort of. When I started this blog back in 2009 it started as a fashion blog. I wasn’t really interested make up or beauty. But since then my interests have changed. Not like I’m less interested in dressing up but it’s quite a bother to take outfit photos all the time. I’m trying to set a rate of one per month at least (there’s one coming up in just a couple of days) but I just wanted you guys to understand that there will be a change in direction, with a lot more beauty products being reviewed because I enjoy it right now & it’s fitting into my life well, if that makes sense. So, we cool?
