BeautyHeaven Beauty Degustation!


I was one of the very lucky ladies invited to head to BeautyHeaven HQ recently to join in the Beauty Degustation. I had to swap a work weekend in order to go, but boy, was it worth it! 

Things kicked off around 12.45, and finished at 3 PM, by which time we were all blissed out and excited about going home to paw through our goodie bags (I was, at least, and boy, what a goodie bag!).


I was part of group 2, starting off at the L'Oreal stand, where I was colour matched to an Infallible foundation, which should be arriving in the mail soon. I was told that I was actually in between the shades (damn this time of year!), but I could go a little warmer. I hope that means I won't look like I'm wearing a mask! I'm sure it'd be lovely - I can't wait to see how it goes on my skin!

Sorry for the lack of pictures of the different stations - I was just so excited the entire time that I just spent most of the time gawking! 


We then headed to the L'Occitane station, where they went through some of their skincare products, and gifted a small sample jar of their lotion. After that, we sat down as a little group and painted our nails. We got to pick some gorgeous colours out of a little basket. 

I went with an ELES polish, as I had heard so much about it, but never tried it, and did a feature nail with a layer of Ciate glitter. We got to keep some of them when the event ended - I even managed to pick up the one I was using!


Isn't that gorgeous? For anyone who's curious, it's 5 free, has a wide brush, and really easy to use!

After that, we had a bit of a guess the scent competition, where you had to guess what the notes were in the scents. 4 very lovely and lucky ladies won them - well deserved, as I sadly discovered that my nose wasn't quite as fantastic as I thought it was!

Our group then ended with getting our hair done at the Schwarzkopf stand, where I got a bit of extra body added to my tresses. Pretty!


There were little trays of food that went around the place, and I learned that I could eat mini burgers while my nails were drying WITHOUT ruining them. Go me!

After all of that pampering, we still managed to go home with some lovely goodies - lucky us!


I want to take this moment to thank BeautyHeaven for making it such a lovely experience, and for being so generous with the gift packs. Additionally, to all the wonderful women I met that day, thank you for being so friendly! There's something about stepping into a room and striking up a friendly conversation with a perfect stranger, knowing that you're bonded by your love for beauty and beauty products. 

I look forward to meeting both unfamiliar and familiar faces in the future - fingers crossed there's another event on the horizon in the not so distant future, perhaps?

  1. Sounds like a lovely day! Thanks so much for sharing, I was lucky enough to go to the BH Open Day in Melbourne a little while ago and it was such fab fun being surrounded by girls who were all into beauty, and meeting the gorgeous BH ladies!

    Love the goodie bag too. :)

    PS- Eles polishes rock, don't they?

  4. Pity about the smelling station, but surely in your line of work it would be a disadvantage having a greatly acute sense of smell!! ;)
