Sunday saw the return of the ever popular Irish Beauty show to the RDS. This is a highlight for many beauty lovers throughout Ireland, as it is a great chance to see new and old brands up close and grab a bargain at the same time. I had debated if I could face the Sunday crowds, but decided to get up early and power through.
I arrived at a little after 10 and already the place was jam packed. I could not get over how busy it was considering it had been open less then 10 minutes. There were people everywhere. At some stands, like the Crown brush stand, you would think they were giving the stuff away for free. Woman really lose the run of themselves at events like this. I got more than a few digs in the back as I stood looking at stuff. You need your fill wits about you when you go to these shows. I felt most sorry for the boyfriends and husbands that were dragged to the show. Seriously ladies, get dropped off and leave the boyfriend sit in the car, they just get in the way standing about.
Now onto the bargains. There was good value at the show, especially if you were a beautician, as things nail varnishes, waxes, etc were very much reduced in price. I had one thing on my mind and that was makeup brushes. However, when I saw the crowds at the Crown Brush stand, I thought this just isn’t worth it and went differently to the Blank Canvas stand insread. I swear the Crown Brush stand was horrific. People were practically dragging people out of the way to get near the brushes. Eh no thanks.

Of course I was going to stock up on lashes. I actually have an eyelash drawer in my room, with just a lot of different packets of eyelashes. I have a problem I know. These were €8 for the lot and are available in many chemists across the country.
