Lush Blogger Event // Review

Last Tuesday I was kindly invited to attend the Lush Nottingham Blogger event. It was actually my first ever bloggers event that I've been invited to so it was pretty exciting! The event allowed us to get a closer look at their growing range of Gorilla Perfumes, body care products including shower gels, soaps, body scrubs and massage bars. We also had a closer look at their Emotional Brilliance Make-up Range (so cool!) which has been out for a while but we were able to try demos and try on some looks which was great! 

I first went over to have a smell of their Gorilla Perfume range which smelt... lush (sorry, couldn't resist!) There was one in particular which I really loved called 'Sun' and this genuinely smelt like sunshine and summer and oranges all mixed into one. It might sound like a really weird scent to have in a perfume but I think it really worked!

After, I went over to try out their Emotional Brilliance range of make-up. This was my fave part! To make it more fun and interesting we all had to take readings and pick out three colours that stood out to us the most after the wheel had been spun round. Each colour had a positive attribute that was meant to describe you or how you felt. 

 I ended up picking out pink, brown and blue which represented me being passionate, quietly motivated and calm. I actually think this was scarily accurate!  I guess passionate is an obvious one seeing as I run a blog and am passionate about the things I blog about! I would say I'm quite a calm person also - I tend to be quite chilled out at times and not a massive fan of drama and quietly motivated I guess would have to do with me having quite a few personal goals and ambitions that I strive to achieve (although, I guess everyone has personal goals and ambitions!)

My colours!

The great thing about the Emotional Brilliance range is that all the make-up products are versatile - they can be used anywhere on your face - as lipstick, eyeliner, mascara etc which is pretty cool!

I then went over to have a look at the shower gels, body scrubs and massage bars, all of which I'm really excited to try out!

If I missed anyone out, please let me knooooooow!

I'm so glad I went - there was such a fun, relaxed and chilled out vibe and it was so lovely to meet and chat to some local bloggers!  The Lush staff were so welcoming and friendly and I'm so excited to try out some of their samples. I might do a review post on them if you guys are interested? Let me know! :) 
If you haven't already, make sure to check out Lush and have a look at their wider range of hand made and vegetarian products.  They also don't believe in animal testing which is a bonus and have some great campaigns going on at the moment that you can check out and sign up to!
