Rather hefty haul


I’ve been a bit flat out lately, with rather joyous PR events!  I got to the Smashbox 30 plus day – we got to play with all of the new lipsticks as part of the latest release.  Then I went along to the Olympia Beauty, which was so much fun, chatting a few people and interesting brand people.  The most recent event was the Lush Christmas evening!  So I thought I’d get to share the goody bags as well as a few products I bought myself!  OK, let’s dive head first in shall we?

We’ll start with the bag from Olympia Beauty.  I popped by the Jane Iredale stand and have a 5 minute make over on my brows, I will be investigating their foundation soon, it was lovely.  I was given a Magic Mitt – just add water and it will magically remove all makeup! We also got a lip crayon in a wonderful red and some 24carat Gold Dust!  From Creigtons we got some blonde shampoo and curl defining moose.  A hair product I’m going to have to figure out is the Kerastase Nutritive Lait Vital.

NYX gave all sorts of good things. A Liquid Suede – although it’s looking pretty brown, it may find a new home.  We also got a few Full Throttled lippies, I have the shades Jolt and Night Crawler.  I’m keen to try the Vivid Brighton liquid liner in Vivid Delight and the Pore Filler primer.  Speaking of primers I got a sample of the Air Patrol BB Cream eyelid primer from Benefit.

From Dermalogica we have a sample of the new phyto replenish oil – definitely excited to start using it!  I’ve two masks from Beauty Pro A Rejuventating Collagen Mask and a Brightening Collagen Mask.  I’ve another sample from amie of the Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturiser, I’ve a few of these little samples, I will have to give it a whirl!  Quite pleased to get a new powder brush from The Vintage Company.

From Salonsystem I’ve a set of the naturalash lashes! I will have to get my lash game on.  I’m really pleased to have the Ainsel pins, gradually building up my collection of fun pins!  I also popped by the Blogosphere magazine stand and of course had to pick up the latest copy – worth a read if you’ve not already bought it.  I’ve a handy travel size of hand lotion from iMantara, this has a wonderful fresh scent.


The last few things from the goody bag, the Slimming Solutions.  I might pass these along to a friend.  From Nouveau Lashes I got a wonderful set of 3 lashes, did I mention that I’m going to get my lash game on! Yep, expect some interesting lash talks – unless they end up glued to my forehead…well at least it would be interesting!

From the Smashbox day we got two fab liquid lip colours, I’ve mentioned Bawse before, it’s an epic red and the shade Stepping Out.  The lipstick is the shade Headliner, it’s a bit more of a coral red.


Finally Lush!  I was given the shower gel Bubbly, which smells rather nice!  On the night we got to make our own Comforter, I think mine looks like something from Nightmare Before Christmas, so entirely appropriate!  Now we’re on to the bits I bought.  I got a beautiful smelling the Melting Marshmallow Moment, a very christmassy The Magic of Christmas reusable bubble bar – surprisingly it doesn’t smell too strongly of cinnamon!  I’ve finally repurchased a Twilight Bath Ballistic, this helps relax me, win.  I’m hoping if I follow it up with some Sleepy lotion, I will sleep very well!  The last addition is the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub – this has a blackcurrant scent, love it.

    1. Definitely! I’ve not started using them as yet, I’m almost finished a 6 week test of a different product, so once that’s over I’ll move onto the next thing 🙂 All of the pampering! I might just have to do a bit of that today 🙂 x
