Benefit Bloggers Event | April 2015

A little over a week ago, me and a few other lovely blogger ladies got invited to a Benefit Event at House of Fraser in Exeter. I've never been to a bloggers event before as it's very rare to find one local to me, which is why Tayla organised it. The majority of events are in London which saddens me. 

It was a small event with the five of us blogger girls, Tayla(also a blogger but works with benefit too) and another lovely girl that works with Benefit. As it was such a small event(and my very first too) I was put at ease straightaway. All the girls were incredibly lovely and friendly. 

At the event we had an introduction to all of Benefits products. We started off with skincare first of all then slowly moved onto makeup. I fell in love with the skincare which quite surprised me. The smell of the skincare products were just divine and felt so soft on my skin. I also fell for the Posiebalm, They're Real Push-up Liner and the Hervana Blush which has now been mentally added to my wishlist(which is already pretty long).

During the event we were treated to endless refills of pink lemonade, muffins, sherbet lemons and marshmallows. Oh, the muffins and pink lemonade was just delish. It really felt like a quite relaxed but fun atmosphere.

After we tried and tested out the products we were kindly gifted these beautiful boxes. Inside are a few sample pieces to try including the Porefessional, They're Real Push up Liner and Remover, Refined Finish Facial Polish, Total Moisture Facial Cream and Triple Performing Facial Emulsion. I really can't wait to put these to good use, particularly the They're Real Push-up Liner.

Overall I had such a great time. We all really mingled and got on so well, got to know each other and even had a cheeky shopping trip afterwards. Not the best idea was it? I came away with a few goodies which will be shown on the blog as of tomorrow. How typical of me. A big thankyou to Tayla for organising it.

It was great to meet all the girls. I was so hesitant and nervous about meeting everyone at first but we all got on so well and I realised that it wasn't worth being nervous about. There will be another Benefit event at the end of this month that I'm hoping to get to where we will have a makeup masterclass. My fingers are crossed that I'm able to attend. 

Before I end it there, I'd love it if you could check out their blogs. All it takes is a click of the button on their name above. I'm sure they'd really appreciate it. They all have such beautiful blogs.

Have you been to a Benefit Event?
