Hi everyone, hope you’re feeling fabulous! In case you didn’t know, Benefit ran a nationwide competition throughout January to win a #poreoclock party to celebrate the POREfessional primer and the wonderful people of Newcastle tweeted, posted and Instagrammed their way to winning! I was lucky enough to be invited to the party so I thought I’d make a little post to tell you all about it.
The party took place between 4pm-9pm on Saturday 21st February at Madame Koo in Newcastle, and what a party it was! On arriving the first 300 guests through the door received a free POREfessional goody bag, which was amazing! There was so much to enjoy, including :
· Competitions and giveaways
· Free bubbles, nibbles and great music
The first place I stopped at was the makeup stations to get my makeup done by the very beautiful Benebabes. Who doesn’t love a free makeover?! I only got my eyebrows touched up because I quite liked my makeup and didn’t want to change it haha. All the staff were so lovely and pleasant, which was great and helped make the night even better!
After hitting the photobooth with Abbie (www.abigaillouisex.wordpress.com) a fair few times (which was so much fun), I had a lovely little chat with one of the many SpyGals, who very kindly posed for a photo with the very popular POREfessional primer. Here’s a link incase you fancy trying the primer, which I would highly recommend – https://www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk/product/view/the-porefessional
Throughout the night, little white and pink tokens were being given out, entitling each guest to a free drink, which was such a good idea considering they were given out regularly. I love how they even had a twist on the drinks by having vodka with pink lemonade, making it more girly and fun. The pink lemonade literally tasted like Turkish Delight, which was amazing!
The goody bags we received were amazing! Each bag included:
· a POREfessional mousemat
· sticky notepad
· makeup clutch
· silk scarf
· mini POREfessional primer
Throughout the night, there were loads of giveaways and chances for people to win prizes, including some of the recent limited edition Christmas tins. I received a couple of the little alarm clocks, which are so cute, a couple more primers, a couple of BAD gal pocket mirrors and my favourite thing, an umberella! I was so excited to try mine out that when I put it up I broke it, which is so annoying haha.
To round it all up, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Benefit for making my night absolutely amazing, and for the fab goodies! Hopefully we can have a lot more parties like this in the near future!
Lots of love
