Body Shop Blogger Meet Up!

Tuesday, 3 February 2015

 Last week I attended my very first bloggers event at the Body Shop, organised by the lovely Aisling, who blogs over at rosy smiles!

I have to admit, I was a tad nervous..

..but I had nothing to worry about! Everyone was so friendly and the ultimate ice breaker was when we all simultaneously reached for our cameras to photograph the lovely spread of drinks and tempting nibbles - bloggers on the loose!

I did hover around this area for quite a bit!

There were lots of make up artists around that were happy to show us different products and how to use them! 

Me and Katy decided to try out some lip products..Katy went for a bold, red look whereas I was looking for something just a little better than my own lip colour. I tend to shy away from big and bold, I just don't think I can carry it off!

I did end up buying the products they used because I loved the end result...just keep scrolling for that!

Katy and Sam!

I've never met fellow bloggers before so it was great chatting about our blogs and the products we love! 

I spotted a few things I'll be going back for as soon as my student budget allows!

This Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask is one of the Body Shop's new releases and they're not fibbing when they call it bouncy! It's really quite strange how it just goes back into shape! We got a sample of this in our goodie bags, and from what I have used, I'm very impressed! My skin was so soft that I didn't need to moisturise in the morning.

I finally had a photo taken with a selfie stick wooooo!!! They are a handy little gadget!

It really was great meeting the girls and I'll be seeing them very soon for the #NWbloggersmeetup in March - so excited!!!

So this is the first thing I bought..It's a Lip and Cheek Velvet Stick in Poppy Coral (shade 35.) - new for Spring 2015! I can assure you it's not a bright pink as it looks here on the photo! 

I also got a lip liner in Beech shade. I've never even used lip liners before, but what a difference it makes. Beech is a natural nude shade, so it subtly defines your lips and makes a great base for the Lip and Cheek stick.

TADA! :) See, it's not too in your face, it just makes your lips look that little bit better, whilst still keeping a natural look - exactly what I look for in make up!

You can but the lip and cheek stick for £12 here
The Lip liner for £8 here

I also bought a lipstick and concealer brush for £9 here although I actually haven't been using it for applying my lip products as I find it easier to just whack it on! 

Have you got any favourite products from The Body Shop? Let me know in the comments below!

  9. This looks so great and I've heard great things about that sleeping mask! I'm a new blogger as well but can't wait to get stuck into events and things - did you know anyone before you went there?

    1. Hi Josie :) No I didn't know any of the other bloggers, but I did bring my housemate for support! I'm going to a bigger meet up next month with some of the girls from the Body Shop so it'll be less scary now that I've met them :)
