QVC Beauty Bash 2013

I was lucky enough to be invited to attend as a Blogger to the QVC Beauty Bash on Thursday 24th January.

I have always wanted to attend the QVC Beauty Bash and as you know I am avid watcher and purchaser of QVC products   When I was contacted from Elly and the team and invited to attend as a Blogger I jumped at the chance!  I booked annual leave especially and planned my journey to the Business Design Centre in Angel Islington.

Elly made sure that I had a choice of treatment booked in before the general public were allowed to join the Beauty Bash, but me being me I was incredibly late (sorry Elly) so I arrived after 9am when the general public had already been allowed in (traffic and transport were a nightmare!).  

None the less I still met and had my eyebrows threaded by the amazingly humble Shavata and her team (more about this below) I just thought I would write this post to tell you all about the beauty bash and what an amazing time I had!

Where the Event was held - Islington 
A world of Tranquillity did await!

The Gatineau Treatment Area
Shavata's amazing advertising - I Simply adore the art work!  You HAVE to check out the rest of her website!
I was lucky enough to have my eyebrows threaded by the beautiful Shavata and her excellent team, I had a audience of other Beauty Bash attendees watching me, but this didn't put my therapist off, afterwards Shavata and the girls examined my eyebrows and then filled them in with an amazing kit which I have to buy!

You can find the wonderful world of Shavata and her amazing eyebrows by clicking 'Here'  I didn't actually realize that Shavata has a studio in Richmond, Surrey so I shall definitely be visiting that branch as it's quite local to me.

If you have never heard of Shavata before then please do check out her website, it's full of beautiful advertising, and really innovative products you can also purchase Shavata's products directly from QVC UK Shavata really is the queen of eye brows!

All the items I was lucky to receive in my Blogger Goodie bag
The goodie bag for the Beauty Bash was outstanding, I was shocked when Elly gave it to me, and thrilled by the products inside.

Some of the products I cannot stop using are -

The Leighton Denny Colour and Go Nail Colour 

This innovative design is a joy to use, not only does it contain the 'One for All' base and top coat by Leighton Denny but it also contains at the other end a 'Rouge Noir' a deepest red nail colour that is reminiscent of the Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish from years back! 

This duo is easy to hold in the hand when painting your nails, and the colour lasts up to 4-5 days on me which is outstanding considering the amount of work I do.  

I am really grateful for this product being in my goodie bag, I cannot wait for Leighton to bring out other colours in the range!

You can buy this 'Colour and Go' nail set in a duo form - from QVC UK for £18.50, it's a great product to keep in your handbag for touch-ups or travel because it doesn't take up much room!

Here's the link to the duo - Vamp Colour and Go 
Let me know what you think, I am now addicted!

Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil

I met with one of the lovely presenters for Australian Body care when I was walking around the Beauty Bash, as you can see from my goodie bag photo she was kind enough to give me samples of her range, but what I didn't realise is that contained in my goodie bag was a 10ml size of the actual Tea Tree Oil itself!  

I spoke to the presenter about how interested I was in the range, and how the smell I found very comforting and invigorating.  I liked that I was told how I could use the products for different reasons from bathing to helping with my psoriasis   The Tea Tree oil I received in my goodie bag I have been using everyday.  I currently have very bad spots and putting this on them before bed and in the morning has helped me no end.

I am going to continue to use this product as I have really seen my angry spots calm down since using it, and I am definitely going to purchase more from this range!  

You can purchase 3 of the 30ml sizes of the Tea Tree Oil directly from QVC 

And lastly Eve Lom - renowned in the blogging world for her cleanser and stared at by me in Space NK (and never purchased) I was lucky to receive a sample of this cleanser and the cloth to try, now I haven't tried this yet because as I said my skin is not at it's best at the moment but let me tell you there will be a full review of the Eve Lom cleanser and the other products contained in my goodie bag as and when I get around to trialing them for you all!

I was honored to attend this event and I am dying to go next year!  
There were so many brands at the Beauty Bash and presenters that I have watched for the past 16 years that I have been addicted to QVC!  I loved that new Today's Special Value's were displayed for people to see and how informative all of the staff were on each stand.  I have a wonderful Gatineau Facial kit to try which is another French skincare brand which I have been eager to trial for you all, so expect the words "Beauty Bash" and "QVC" mentioned quite a bit in the next few weeks.

Take a look at all the other brands stocked by QVC which is there dedicated Beauty Product section on their site.

Thanks to Elly and the team for inviting me!

Lots of Love
