Despite the cold feet, rain and long wait, the queue-line experience was actually a fun one. I hadn't seen Emily for a while so we had plenty of time to catch up. It was interesting to people watch and check out the amazing make up of fellow fans. Also, when you're stood in the same place for hours, you end up talking to those around you and with members of the public coming up to us regularly to ask what we were queuing for, it made for a rather social day.
After being greeted with a big hug, I told her how excited I am for the Too Faced collaboration and thanked her for her time - she had been there since 9:30am and didn't leave until 7:00pm, having met in the region of 2,500 of us, some coming from as far as Rome! How someone can manage to be so smiley, warm and positive after such a long day is beyond me but it gave an insight into how much she cares about her fans. Had I had more time I would have asked if she'd been able to visit any of London's vegan restaurants and give her a couple of recommendations.
The MUA's for the KVD counters were SO excited and passionate. One told us of how they had a briefing on their first day and weren't expecting to meet Kat but she popped up out of a decorative coffin in the meeting room - how cool is that?! Unfortunately the counters were far too busy to get photos of but they are stunning. Unsurprisingly black, ornate and all designed and hand drawn by Kat, as is the packaging for her products.
Which Kat Von D products are you excited to try?
