On Tuesday me and some other Bloggers of the North were welcomed by Harvey Nichols Manchester for a evening of luxury. This entailed being pampered with facials, learning more about certain brands and being served with drinks and nibbles – the macaroons were so cute and delicious! Katie organised the whole event… so thanks Katie!
The evening was spent meeting other beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers which I must admit I had a few ‘fan girl’ moments >_< Chatting about our interests and finds at different counters.
Firstly we had a talk by Ruth over at the Bobbie Brown counter, which actually gave me more of an insight about the brand. It was fascinating to know that her big break through was after doing the American vogue cover featuring Naomi Campbell look.
Bobbie brown is well known for their gel eyeliners which I have always known, but yet have not got one. I’m quite indecisive about which colour to get, as I already own a black gel eyeliner… choices?! I received an ‘everything mascara’ which is a convenient travel size so will be a new addition to my ‘on-the-go’ make-up bag. I also got to try the hydrating face cream that smells so nice like you wouldn’t believe which is great for applying before your make-up.
Finding out about the ‘Creme de la Mere’ brand was my favourite talk. It could be the fact that the display of fishes were extravagant or just that the products were enticingly good. When I came face-to-face with the moisturising soft cream, I felt I had used this product before. Whether my mum had it previously I still cannot remember. However trying out the soft cream was extremely smooth on the skin leaving a silky, nourished texture. The price of these… let me just breathe… okay… lets just say, they are not within a students budget, however, if you are willing to make a ‘luxury beauty investment’… as I like to call it, why not 🙂
The samples we got from this were so tiny!!! Moisturing soft cream 3.5ml (worth £11) and the Oil absorbing lotion 3ml (worth £9). But considering the full size product prices, I’m so happy to give them a proper trial run.
Lastly Laura gave a talk about some Rodial products which I first came across in one of my previous Glossybox‘s. I’ve tried the Glamoxy Snake serum and liked it so I loved finding out about Glamoxy Snake Mask which you can see on her hand… I know!!! I love the fact that it is a peel off mask that can remove impurities and enhance the radiance of the face with the help of the liquorice. It aims to minimise fine lines and imperfections… which don’t sound too bad to me 😀
Overall this event was such a pleasant experience and it was great meeting and talking to other bloggers like Charlotte, Sam, Katie, Demi-Leigh, Naffisah, Sindy, Ian, Chelsea, Megan, Bobbi and a few others. Thank you @HN_Manchester for having me 🙂
Thanks for reading 🙂
