#SheffieldBBloggers Goody Bag

If you ready my post about the recent Sheffield Bloggers Meet Up, you may recall me mentioning a goody bag so huge and goody-filled it needed it's own post - and here it is! 

Give them nightmares make up

First of all I was very excited to discover some amazing bits from Makeup Revolution. Despite hearing nothing but great things about the brand I'd rather shamefully tried nothing from them before the event. Everyone got either the full set of lipsticks or the gorgeous Give Them Nightmares Palette but since Hayley is very generous and lovely she gave me her palette as she already had it so I ended up with both, woo! Makeup Revolution also donated their eye primer to everyone too.

I love adding to my Nail Polish collection too, and got some real beauties in the bag! I''m crazy about 'a-list', the lovely red polish from Essie, and I'm really looking forward to trying the lovely pair from The Body Shop - who I didn't even realise did nail polish! My Beauty UK polish is a similar colour to one of my Body Shop polishes but it's texture makes it a completely different kettle of fish! 


My lips will be as well taken care of as my nails with this lovely collection of lip goodies - moisturising balms from Lypsyl and Epic Blend and glimmering glosses from Deborah Milano and Crabtree and Evelyn


We all get to keep our faces nice and clean and moisturised too! We received a facewash from Quinoderm, scrub from T-Zone and toner from Skinetica, and a face cream from Balance Active Formula. The Skinetica is already a favourite from previous experiences, and I've heard great things about Quinoderm so really looking forward to trying that! 


One product that I think everyone 'oooh'ed at when discovering it in their bags was the Urban Decay Eye Primer - this would you believe is my first ever Urban Decay product! I was also very excited by the mini lolli-tint from Benefit as I've not tried this but adore their posie tint! The new brushes - from Nanshy and Crown Brush were welcome discoveries too! The Papier Poudre blotting papers are adorable, and I'm giddy about the Bare Minerals Eye Liner too - yet another brand I've heard raved about but never tried!


I've mentioned before I'm sure that leave-in conditioner is my favourite beauty invention in the world and the much-appreciated Macadamia product apparently cleanses as well as conditions so sounds like a winner to me! The Joico colour therapy shampoo sounds great too! 


 It wasn't all beauty product though - on no! Some adorable new additions to my jewelley and accessories box came in the form of this sweet midi ring from Vanilla Shimmer, four leaf clover bracelet from Tiny Wishes, badge from House of Wonderland and beautiful butterfly earrings from Punky Pins


I was ridiculously excited about the amazing WWF plasters from Dermocare - this kids are gonna go nuts over these but I want to keep them for myself! WE also got some pretty sexy looking stockings from Charnos, a water-flavourer from Go Splash and underarm pads from Mondss. 


I know Simone reviewed the Clinomyn toothpaste recently and said it made a massive difference to the appearance of her teeth so I;m looking forward to trying this for myself! The Lyons Leaf Beauty Balm sounds right up my street, and there was a sample of Derma Dew moisturiser too! 


We all received a product from Cloud 9 Skin Solutions too - I got a scar minimising cream which will be grand as years working in kitchens when I was younger (and generally being a bit clumsy) have left me with a couple of scars! Last but by no means least is the Ginger and Lime hand cream I received from the Somerset Toiletry Company - I can pretty much guarantee this will be the first thing in the bag I use up in its entirety - it smells so good I can't keep myself from reapplying!

And that, I think, is finally about it - how much were we treated! A massive thanks goes out to all these brands included here and again to anyone who was at all involved with putting on this fab event for us all to enjoy!
