Lush Nottingham Bloggers Event

So last night I went to my first ever bloggers event at Lush Nottingham. I'm already a massive fan of Lush but they were holding this event to tell us more about their make up and bodycare ranges and some new products.

Firstly I went over to look at the Emotional Brilliance range which contains 30 versatile and beautifully pigmented colours, all named with a positive attribute or feeling. We all had readings on the magical colour wheel which revealed a strength of ours, a want and an aspiration. After my reading I went over to explore the colours and how I could wear them, all colours are blendable and can be worn as eyeshadow, eyeliner, blusher or lipstick. I tried the bright pink 'passionate' on my lips and loved it, the colour lasted all night too!

I also had an introduction to the new 'feeling younger' skin tint which can be mixed or used as a highlighter and the colour supplements as a base.

 I then went over to have a look at the new Gorilla Perfume range and loved the pretty bottles in all different shapes and sizes. My favourite was Furze that smelt like coconut and vanilla, like the pinacolada's we were drinking!

Next I was treated to a hand massage with two of the new formulation massage bars. What's different about the new massage bars is that the cocoa butter is now all fairtrade, fitting in with Lush's ethics. Also, the new formula melts much quicker and easier which is lovely as if you've read my Soft Coeur massage bar review you'll know that I had difficulty melting it in my hands but these melt so much better now. I tried Therapy and Each Peach because I loved the smells. 

Each Peach is a lovely citrusy smell with lime oil.

Last but not least, I went over and had a look at the shower gels and jellies and the body butters with exfoliating textures. I smelt all the gels as I normally stick to Snow Fairy at christmas and fell in love with the Sweetie Pie jelly, that smells like Ribena. I then tried the body butters which you use in the shower and liked Buffy as it was moisturising yet exfoliating.

I would like to thank Lush Nottingham for their hospitality as we were very well looked after. It was a lovely relaxed evening and their was lots of staff available to answer any questions we had as we freely moved around the store.

They very kindly sent us home with a goody bag with a massage bar, body butter, shower gel or jelly and body lotion of our choice. Thanks Lush!
Also, we had personalised badges made from recycled Lush times, how cute?

It was also great to meet some Nottingham bloggers including:

Sophia from Tattooed Tea Lady
Gemma from gemma means jewel
Saadiya from that girl Saadiya
Megan from seek my scribbles
