Away from keyboard

An AFK of this whole month. I’ve been away for 2 weeks to Serbia and Sevilla, which will be a separate travel article. When I came back, it was the bi-annual press week. I have been to 15 events/showrooms in 5 days. I haven’t captured them all properly, but you might have seen some of it on Snapchat (hashtagbylily). Anyhow, enjoy this little diary with the high lights of this month!

— Maison Lancôme —

I was so excited when I received the Maison Lancôme invite. This event was really beautiful. They presented the products and we got to experiment with it.  I love Lancôme, as it was my very first make up brand I bought back in the days. Their eyeliner is really one of the best. And now I am trying out all the products in the goodie bag!

UPR threw their bi-annual #UPRdigitalseeds event for bloggers to get to know the brands and to see the collections. It’s always fun to hang out with fellow bloggers during these events. I was mostly impressed with TOMS’ virtual reality glasses. It was so surreal, like I really was in Africa that moment.

— Hans Anders breakfast —

Apparently I have a glasses face. I though my head is way to big for glasses, but the Hans Anders expert gave me a few to try one and they actually looked quiet okay :D
I can’t wait to get these new Ray-Bans that will come out beginning of May.

A secretive Benifit event, as they were showing us their new brow collection for the first time in The Netherlands. There is a world-wide embargo until May 13th, so I can’t show you the photos of the products we got to try at the event just yet. BUT I can tell you this, it will definitely change your eyebrow game!
