On Saturday, both me and Jaz (from The Life of a Social Butterfly) headed down to good ol’ London for the Blogosphere Valentine’s Tea Party! It was a fab event held in the Tropical Library (the most eclectically styled room ever) in Lumiere London, SE1.
As soon as we walked in we were greeted by some lovely ladies, rum punch courtesy of The Duppy Share and an array of the most beautiful cakes. I knew this was going to be a good event from that initial moment alone..! Ha!
Naturally there was quite a queue at the Kat Von D stand to discover the latest products. I’ve never tried the range before, and I was sooo impressed by the amount of shades they had available, alongside the fact that everything is cruelty free with some products even being vegan too! Fab!
We each took turns to sit in the makeup chair (which I gracefully stuggled to get up onto!) to get colour matched and find our perfect shade. Mine was L45 BTW, just in case, you know, someone wants to be kind and buy me a bottle!!
Being someone who doesn’t really wear liquid foundation, only a little concealer and powder, I was really pleased with how light the product felt on my skin. Even though it gave me a good coverage, it didn’t feel like I was wearing a thing!
Also…how freakin’ lush is the packaging on these liquid lipsticks..?
I’m loving this “Better Together” heart palette as a result of the collab between Too Faced and Kat Von D. It’s fab that they’ve brought the sweetness of Too Faced and the edginess of Kat Von D together! The pallete comes with 6 eyeshadows from each brand, along with the holy grail Better Than Sex mascara from Too Faced and the signature Tattoo Liner from Kat Von D. Love it!
(Did you catch my review of the Too Faced masterclass in Debenhams, intu Milton Keynes? You can read all about it *here*. They should be holding more this year!)
We also got given this ah-mazing Light and Shade Kat Von D palette in our goodie bag!! I cannot wait to try this out!
When I’m stressed, I bite my lips. Yeap, not great. And after a couple of stressful weeks, my lips are chapped and definitely in need of a little TLC! So I’m super excited to try out the Dr Lipp product we got in our goodie bags, as I’ve heard nothing but great stuff about it. Don’t be put off by the word “nipple” on the product, it can be used for sooo many things, it’s a huge multitasking product!
Glo&Ray was a new brand I discovered at the event which I’d never heard of before, but their products looked great! The packaging was sleek and stylish and the products are really affordable. I swatched a couple of the eyeliners on my hand and they lasted so well! They have a fantastic collection of lipsticks, which they said was one of their best selling areas – so if that’s your thing, go check them out! I also loved their eyeshadow quads featuring great everyday shades alongside pops of colour. I think they’d make a perfect travel palette!
We received a brow pencil, mascara and eyeliner in our goodie bags and I’m going to be super generous and give these away on my social media! So do keep your eyes peeled on my Twitter, Instagram & brand new Facebook page for my blog to be in with a chance of winning them!
The Flash Pack provided a whole load of fun on the day with their photoshoot area where you could put yourself on the cover of Blogosphere magazine! Me and Jaz had fun creating a couple of these and then we could take home a copy!
What a fab afternoon we had! A big thank you to Blogosphere Magazine for a great day filled with lots of fun, great brands, yumminess and goodies! This was my first Blogosphere event and I will definitely be coming back.
