The Body Shop Event!

Today was the beauty bloggers event day which was hosted by... The Body Shop! It was a lovely day which was very well thought out. I thouroughly enjoyed myself and hope they do more of these days! The day consisted of refreshments :) lots of lovely cookies! Watching Chase Aston, celebrity make up artist do a demo for a day smokey eye and transform it into an evening smokey eye. Then we went to the bodyshop to familiarise ourself with certain products and got samples. We also had a skin consultation and had a one to one makeover. Can I also say that it was really weird and fun to meet everybody :) I had so much fun! Everyone looked beautiful!


Here's me and "SaskiaTheSalsaFairy" blog name.. not sure if she wants her real name disclosed :) so I will not announce it without her knowing!

The highlight of it was of course the goody bag.. I mean it was so heavy, I could barely walk! I would have shown you the bag but unfortunately the vitamin e facial oil exploded all over it. But, just look at all of these wonderful goodies, there is showergel, body butter, shampoo conditioner, skin care, make up and lots of brushes! I am highly impressed - no doubt I will be reviewing these products from this day forward.. HOWEVER, I have one problem, where am I going to fit this all - my make up drawer is already loaded :)

The first thing I just had to share with you was these gorgeous eyeshadows - the packaging is sooo pretty but I wonder if they will fit into Mac palettes if depotted? Bodyshop take note - you need to have palettes!!
Here they are swatched! They are very pigmented with great colour pay off!
Ahhh, I wont bombard you with swatches for everything but I will definately be using these and trying to get the best out of them, so look out for my face of the days!
NOTE: Expect a group picture taken outside the Mac pro store on the blog soon - OxfordJasmine has the pic and i'm waiting for her to send it to me :) Also.. I never got anything from Mac Sugarsweet - i'm not crazy :) why would I go and spend money when I have all of this free make up to play with + the collection didn't do nothing for me - not excited by it at all!
