To celebrate the opening of their Eaton Centre store, NYX held a Prom Party where attendees could experience or relive prom! NYX also asked attendees to help support The New Circles Prom Project by bringing a pre-loved/new suit or dress which I think is a great idea since I barely wear the same dress twice (partially cause I can't fit my old dresses, but that's not the point hehe). The event was held in a former church with music, activities, dancing and drinks.
There were 3 main stations at the event:
A plinko machine where you could win some NYX prizes such as temporary tattoos, a small container of bubbles for blowing (what are these things called??) and NYX sunglasses.
A photo booth with prom themed props as well as giant NYX props.
A mirror photo booth surrounded by makeup train cases showcasing some NYX products that attendees could test and swatch.
Of course, there was also an open bar and some free food. The open bar mainly served a signature cocktail, but requests for other drinks were welcome. Servers made rounds with food platters which were all bite sized versions of macaroni and cheese puffs, braised beef on a potato chip, fish and chips, along with sweets like lip shaped sugar cookies and candied popcorn.
Coming straight from work, I was ravenous when I came here so I didn't stay for long (I was pretty hangry). I met some awesome bloggers at the event, including new ones (Lindsey from Lindsey Ginge, Christine from , Christine from, and from A Certain Rom Blog. For some it was their first time at prom so I was happy to be part of their experience.
Of course, NYX didn't send us home empty handed and we received some awesome swag! Attendees received a cute NYX backpack that contained a NYX Class of 2016 colouring book containing images of YouTubers that are affiliated with NYX, colouring pencils and a NYX Beauty School Dropout palette.
