Some things that I love: makeup, friends, prosecco, cheese platters and exploring Boston. Put them all together and what do you get? The night I recently spent at Follain in Beacon Hill!

My dear friend Kaitlin told me about the Follain Berry Lip Tutorial they were hosting on September 24th. I immediately RSVPed and then convinced my coworkers Justyna and Liz to join too. Nothing like a little peer pressure.

Everyone at the event – both attendees and staff alike – were so friendly and fun. They really made for the perfect evening. Plus, Follain proved to be a dreamy store. I had heard amazing things but never been, and I was anything but disappointed. I’d like to move in, please.

On top of all of that, I had the chance to try out makeup that I haven’t before. I didn’t buy any products we used at the event, but I know at least one of my friends scooped up the foundation we used. You can check out the video description for a full list of the products we used in the tutorial.

The Follain ladies mentioned that they host events every third Thursday of the month, so I can’t wait to see what they have in store for October!


Tell me: Do you rock a berry lip for fall?

    I am dear to you?! How lucky! Also, I definitely got the foundation and am loving it. Who would have thought, a freckle-face wearing foundation!

      Eh – you’re kind of dear to me, I guess 😉 So glad you’re loving the foundation. Don’t you dare hide those freckles from the world.

    It definitely seemed like a lot of fun. I often don’t go to things like that because I feel guilty if I don’t buy anything or don’t buy a lot. Glad there was no pressure at this event. I’ll have to check this shop out next time iI’m in town to get my hair colored 🙂

    Follain is such a great store from what I’ve heard- lots of amazing green beauty brands! I’m dying to go visit.

    I’ve never been to Boston but this store sounds great if they have these events so often.

    Sounds like this was a blast. I had a friend that loved this store… she just moved, but loved it.
