Can't wait for UD to finally launch in Riga!
So last Thursday early in the morning I took the bus to go to Tallinn for the Urban Decay launch in Kaubamaja and for the Masterclass by Jillian Ward. As you can see in the 2nd picture, there were a lot of people there at the launch! The first time when I saw that Urban Decay stand, while walking in the store, I had such a surreal feeling. It is so cool that these big makeup brands are finally launching in our corner of the world! After browsing the stand I was pleasantly surprised to see that there were some of the new products, like the One & Done, Afterglow 8-Hour Powder highlighters and Beached Bronzers. We decided to come back later that day or the first thing next morning, when it would be calmer. But before leaving I had to buy the Afterglow highlighter, just in case it sold out. Needless to say, I had to get the same shade that Maret did.
After a lovely lunch and browsing around some cool Estonian shops we got back to the hotel, recharged and then headed over to the Masterclass. The "class" was held in a very open and friendly form. While Jillian was doing the makeup and telling us all sorts of tips and tricks, we could ask questions. I was happy to find out that it also takes a lot of time for Jillian to do her makeup (makes me feel a lot better about my snail speed, haha). After the masterclass I headed over to snap away the content in the makeup station. I think that I can honestly say that I have a new makeup brand crush.
We didn't end up going to Kaubamaja that evening, but we did go the next morning. Long story short, money was spent, makeup junkie for now is satisfied.
I had planned to take more pictures, but honestly I just wanted to catch up with Maret and spend quality time with her and Liz, that I totally forgot about my camera and the only photos and videos I took was mostly on snapchat (you can find me as allksne there).
P.S. - You can find a selection of Urban Decay products already on douglas.lv page ;)
