Event // Cocoa Brown - #PassionPersistencePink @ The Shelbourne Hotel

Hi guys! 

Last month I was very kindly invited along to attended the very much anticipated #PassionPersistencePink event held by Cocoa Brown in the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. I went with Grainne from Trés-Belle Blog as we recently only found out that we live within 5 minutes of each other! She's one of the funniest, prettiest, most down to earth girls I've ever met, so definitely give her a follow. We also met up with the fabulous Katie from Blogging It Beautiful who was equally nice, so give her a follow too!!

As we entered the Hotel and registered, Marissa was awaiting all who came to the event and we got to have our picture taken with her! She's such a doll, We then took our seats and eagerly waited for the event to start!

To start the day we were all given a little present from Flormar which included a lipstick and a lip liner and were treated to a fantastic ombre lip demo by Rosie Conolly, Tara O Farrell, AJ Fitzsimons and Marissa herself. 

We also got to ask the girls any questions we had and they were only too happy to answer!


Next up was a live Tontouring demo by Marissa on her beautiful sister!  
She used Gentle Bronzed (my HG tan) as a base and 1 Hour Tan as the contour. Tontouring has taken the world by storm and its something I really want to try.. although I'll have to build up some courage beforehand!

After the Tontouring demo, we were spoilt with food and cupcakes from the Shelbourne. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures before I scoffed mine, but we had a selection of sandwiches, smoked salmon and goats cheese, very fancy indeed. I did, however, get to snap my cupcake! That frosting was the best I've ever tasted, it was melt in your mouth stuff!

Then the part we were all waiting for! The new product reveal! I can't explain how much excitement was in the air when this was happening and Marissa's love for her brand was evident with every single word she spoke! She was just beaming when she finally let the Tan out of the bag! 

Here they are! 

The two newest members of the already adored Cocoa Brown family! The Instant Tan Bronzing Gel in both Matte and Shimmer! 

Some info on them:

I've already used the Matte one quite a bit, but I'll be putting them both to the test soon and will have a separate post on them soon.. but *SPOILER* I'm in love! 

To finish the day with a bang, we were treated to an amazing makeup demonstration by X-Factor  Makeup Artist Julia Carta! The finished look was not only stunning, but I learned so much from Julia as well!  She's such a lovely person and was so informative and generous with her knowledge of makeup!

If all that wasn't enough, Marissa, her team and all the amazing sponsors gifted us with the most amazing 'Swag Bags' (as Marissa liked to call it).
Here's what was included!
