Recently I had the lovely pleasure of attending the DeiseDollsDay Event which was basically a beauty charity event put together by the bloggers of Waterford (also known as DeiseBloggers). On the day we were given very generous beauty goodie bags to take home with us and I thought it would be a good idea to run through it and what I got in it with you guys.
I should probably get the first two products over and done with as both of these are tanning products and I personally don’t use tan at all. I’m very much an embrace the paleness type of gal and so these will most likely go to a friend. If you guys would like reviews on them I’m pretty sure I can get her to guest review them on my blog so do let me know.
The first of the tans is the TanTastic spray on tan and it comes in a nice simple white spray bottle with a popping pink lid. The second on the tans is from TanOrganic and this is a mousse instead of a spray on. Both of these brands I’ve heard great things on their tans but like I said if you would like a review for them I can get my friend to guest write it on here.
One of the many brands sponsoring the event and was present on the day was Tomitago which is an Irish owned skincare brand. I’ll be honest in saying that up until that day I had never heard of this brand but I did get their cleansing oil to try. I both love and hate the packaging in that I love the pump and the metal look of it but because it’s opaque and not see-through than I will have no idea as to when my cleanser is running out.
I got the Ziaja hand cream from there Goat’s Milk range which is also a product I’ve never tried. That said I have tried their hand cream from the Olive range (the one in the green packaging) and absolutely love that one so I’m hoping that this will be the same texture and formulation wise.
I was absolutely delighted when I spotted this Blank Canvas F23 brush as the makeup artist on the day had used it to apply the models foundation and the result was simply flawless. The brush has a nice dense but flexible bristles on it and they angle themselves into a pointed shape making it super handy for getting into the contours of the face.
The Declare Detox Night Cream is an amazing night cream if you’re looking for something to hydrate your skin whilst you sleep. It’s not heavy and it comes in a handy 50ml tube which makes it perfect for travelling and on the go.
As you guys all know one of my favourite brands ever is Essence Cosmetics and to be quite frank I can never have to many products from them. This their smoky eyes set in the shade 01 Smokey Night.
It comes with a useless mini sponge tipped applicator which surprisingly I haven’t lost yet and three super pigmented eyeshadows. There’s a lovely pale silver, a muted grey and a strong shimmery black. Everything you need to create a smoky eye in one single palette.
Two of the NYX Cosmetics Eyebrow Cake Powder sets were included in the goodie bag as well. These are handy little palettes that contain a clear wax for setting the brows and two differing shades of brow powder.
The palette also comes with a mini spoolie brush which is actually pretty decent and a small angled brush which isn’t.
This is probably the only product from the goodie bag that I have tried enough since getting it to give a decent mini review on. This is the Nia Oat and Avocado Facial Exfoliator and I simply put hate this product. It smells terrible and that aside it feels very sticky on the face. I honestly felt like I had to re-wash my face again after I had used it using a different cleanser. Also it’s terrible for getting makeup off.
Let’s end things on a high note with one of my favourite products from the goodie bag. I have reviewed products from Technic Cosmetics before so I shall link that below but for now this is their Cream Blush & Bronze palette and it’s an 8-pan palette with four blushes and four bronzers
I personally have been using all of these as blushes because I think the bronzers are a bit too warm and have a bit too much orange in them to really be suited as bronzers. That said as blushes they work a dream. Super pigmented and very creamy. Blend beautifully but not over powder (considering it’s a cream that can be expected and hence I don’t really judge it) and they’re not sticky at all once they’re set.
That’s everything that I received in my goodie bag and if you would like me to review a specific item in more detail please let me know and I’ll be happy to do that!
