Benefit 'Stay Flawless' Event

Tuesday, 11 June 2013













Hi Girls! Firstly, sorry about the picture heavy post but I really wanted to show you everything! I'm so excited to write this post as last night I attended my first every bloggers event, and even more exciting it was a Benefit event! I've loved Benefit ever since I was 15 and my Mum took me to a Benefit counter to get their You Rebel tinted moisturizer  at the time it was the perfect foundation as my skin was covered in acne and I didn't want to make it any worse. So really, my make up obsession started with Benefit and now here we are again...

I was greeted with a glass of champagne and some lovely nibbles and as I was slightly late I  missed the initial chit-chat but I was in time for the presentation. Lisa, Benefit's top make up artist was there to show us all how their new primer 'Stay Flawless' worked and gave us all the necessary information about the product. We also got to take part in a little quiz to win prizes, unfortunately I didn't win anything this time but I did win a lovely eye-shadow from their new range at the end of the event which I was so excited about! 

After the presentation, we were all given wristbands which told us what time we would be going into the ice bar, I was SO excited for this as going to the ice bar has been on my bucket list for a very long time, and what better way to experience it than with a lot of excited bbloggers?! While we were waiting to go into the ice bar the lovely lisa colour matched us all so we knew what shade of foundation we would need, I was matched to the lightest shade 'ivory - believe in me' but I'm going to save reviewing the product for a different post as this one is already turning out to be quite long! 

Then for the exciting part, we were all given our stylish blue capes to keep us warm and a token for a cocktail and we entered the Ice Bar. It sounds stupid, but I didn't realise how cold it would be! I loved the ice bar despite being absolutely freezing and the cocktails were so yummy. I opted for the 'Apollo 11' which was a fruity, vodka based cocktail...although they were surprisingly hard to drink as the glasses were also made out of ice and cut into a square shape. 

After the Ice Bar experience we were given some amazing goodie bags with full size bottles of the primer, foundation and a foundation brush for the best application, how generous were they!

I loved every second of this experience and met some lovely girls at the event so I just want to say a HUGE thank you to all the girls at Benefit Cosmetics for putting on such a fab event and making us all feel so welcome!

    1. Hey, sorry it took me so long to reply to this but I've been super busy recently! I recieved an e-mail invite so Benefit must have gotten my e-mail from somewhere. I'm sure if you tweet them next time they are holding an event, you may be able to get an invite, I know a few girls did that to get invite's to this event :) xx
