I was lucky enough to win a Kit Cosmetics/Smashbox competition this week, that saw me watching Burlesque before the masses in the beautiful director's suite in Melbourne Central. The venue was a great choice, central and great for public transport. Having never been to the directors suite up there I was pleasantly surprised to see myself in what looked like a bar and Kit Cosmetics combined!

Sipping at my complimentary white wine and ogling the AMAAAZING shoes the Kit girls were rocking, I was pulled up to have my make-up touched up. I took along Christopher's brothers gf, and she was beyond excited to get her mini makeover! Here's what was popped on me (permanent collection was used):
* Pink blush of unknown name, with Fan Brush No.22 which was oh so soft!($26.95)
* Champagne shadow
* Khaki shadow in my crease
* Jet Set Waterproof Eyeline (gel,$32.95) with Arched Eye Liner Brush No.21 ($29.95)
*Lip Enhancing Gloss Sheer Colour in Tease, which is a sheer raspberry that I have fallen in love with and NEED to have ($26.95)

The Kit girls were kind enough to hand out goodie bags, which contained:
*Burlesque Fisnets (Legs by Jonathan Aston, fishnet backseam hold up in black&gold)
*Sample size O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss
*Sample size photo finish primer
*Sample size Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
As well as an invitation to visit the girls in Kit for a Burlesque inspired makeover.Image nabbed from Musings of a Muse
After all the lovely ladies had their new faces on, we walked up the spiral staircase to the cinema itself. I could get used to pushing a button and having my seat recline, let me tell you that right now. A complimentary choc-top/popcorn was offered (popcorn, natch!) and the lights dimmed.

I won't ruin Burlesque for you, but trust me, it's a film you have to see! I found everyone and everything in it so beautiful and mesmerising, my concentration never wavered and it's something I would love to own on DVD. I agree with others I heard who said that it was better than Moulin Rouge. Let me know if you agree?

Big thanks to Kit, Smashbox and Burlesque for hosting an entertaining night=)
