I had posted over on tiff+jen about the Clinique & Vogue event and just wanted to post a recap as I went on Saturday and it was a blast!
I have to admit, what drew me in was the custom sketch by Brooke Hagel of Brooklit, I found her etsy shop awhile back and have admired her fashion illustrations. I always wanted one of myself so jumped at the chance when I saw that she would be sketching at this event. The event was at Nordstrom Bellevue so I brought my daughter as Bellevue is much more family friendly (to manuever a stroller downtown is not hard but it's annoying.) and even she had a blast at the event!
I got set up with my Clinque Specialist, Ronee, who was so great and chose some great products for me. She asked me a few questions to figure out my skin type and any other concerns that I have.
She then walked me through the products that she would be using for me and how they target my skin concerns. She used the purifying cleansing brush on me to remove my makeup and I have to say that I really loved it. I've been a clarisonic user for about 5 years now so I haven't thought about using anything else however, this one has a oval shaped head and an angled tip so it can really get to the areas like the corners of your nose for a deep clean. It's definitely something I'm going to look into if I ever have to replace my clarisonic.
I had the rest of my skincare and makeup applied and I was super happy with the look. She wrote down the list of products that were used and this is what I ended up buying.
Yvonne's sketch showed off her adorable baby bump. We are entirely too happy about our sketches. LOL! We were sad because we couldn't take the sketches home but they will be printing them onto cell phone cases for us which is very cool. I can't wait to get mine!
A couple more goodies from the event - the Vogue September Issue (yay! it's so big!) and some photobooth pics with Yvonne and the sweet ladies from Clinique, and Brooke's business card, with her fabulous illustration!
Thank you so much to the Clinque team for being so nice and even helping watch Layla while I was busy, she absolutely loved the attention she got from everyone!
Brooke mentioned that she would be going to a few more cities so check her blog or her instagram for more details.
