To celebrate the success of the Bloggers’ Beauty Secrets collection becoming part of the main line of Essence Cosmetics, some other lovely bloggers and I headed to Cologne for a day full of beauty-inspired surprises…
After an adventure to the food markets (#foodporn this way) we freshened up before joining everyone downstairs for welcome drinks in the form of delicious berry smoothies. The four bloggers who collaborated with Essence to create the palettes where there, including the lovely Mary from Strike a Pose, repping the British beauty blogger gals!
We were seated at large tables with one of the four bloggers (I was in #teammary obvs) to find out more about their palette before moving around the room to discover the other three. I’ll be sharing a full review of the four palettes soon so look out for that! The girls also picked a nail polish to match their palettes – Palmira’s rose gold metalic shade had me all heart eye emoji.
We headed out for dinner on the terrace and were treated to sushi, salad and a BBQ before an ice cream bar popped up *cue excited squeals and some excellent queuing from us Brits*. Bright blue cocktails accompanied dinner and we went into typical blogger mode, instagraming the amazing pink pineapples and decor.
Back inside, we were invited to put together our own palette from a huge range of essence cosmetics goodies before heading to the bar for the final surprise of the day – a UV party. There was body paint, DJs and a UV Photo Booth to keep us entertained, plus some real throwback songs that kept us on the dance floor all night.
Thanks to Essence Cosmetics for flying us out to Germany for a fab weekend – keep an eye out for more of my Cologne adventures. Have you tried Essence Cosmetics before?
Love Lucinda xx
A faux-ginger, gin drinking, digital marketing gal with a thing for food styling. That was basically my old Tinder bio... Living in Leeds, I'm forever heading out for dinner, buying too many clothes, spending 50% of my money on ubers and, as of now, putting my stamp on my new apartment!
