A.K.A Cosmetics

Hey guys,

I went to a great event last Thursday for a new cosmetics range called AKA cosmetics.

When I arrived I felt a little daunted, as I knew I wouldn’t know anyone there. But I was greeted at Vanilla lounge with a glass of champagne and a warm welcome from Katie and the Touch media girls and I began to feel a lot more at ease!

I met some lovely fellow bloggers there too like Emma, Christina, Beccy and Robin among others and it was so refreshing to talk to likeminded people that love fashion and beauty, and not just bore the boyfriend.

We were treated to, not only delicious canap├ęs and cocktails (seriously the Strawberry Kiss cocktail was off the chaaaarts), but there were also manicure and make up stations to available to doll you up using the new products. As I had already done my nails, I opted to have my eyes done and asked for a green smoky eye using their eyeshadow quad and I loved the result, I would actually go as far to say that the eyeshadows were my favourite, they were quite pigmented and didn’t crease. We all got some fab stuff to try out and I was especially impressed with the nail polish and the lipgloss; however it seems more like a lip stain as it’s not tacky and goes on quite thinly, and the colour stays on for absolutely ages!

All in all the range is definitely something to try and I’m really excited to get my hands on the eyeshadow quad very soon. The prices on the website are quite reasonable, definitely more high street than high end which is great if your purse-strings are a little tight!

Love Keeks xo
