Glamour Affair Gift Bag

ga1

Last weekend, I attended blogger event Glamour Affair in Melbourne. We received a very generous gift bag full of products, and since I didn't take a lot of photos on the day, I thought I'd share everything we received.

ga2

I couldn't even fit it all in the photo!


ga3

Scunci Soft & Lightweight Scrunchies

Seems like scrunchies are back! I can't wait to try these out, as I don't often wear my hair up because I feel like it looks boring. A scrunchie should help that.

Scunci Break Resistant Braided Hair Ties

These are actually really nice, and look very strong. I often break my hair ties, so I'll be interested to see if these are any better than normal hair ties. 

Scunci Super Comfy Head Bands

I sometimes wear head bands for fashion, but these look great at keeping hair back. They do seem fairly flexible, so they should be good.

Scunci Pin Twirls


These look interesting. I'm concerned my hair might not be long enough, but I'll definitely give them a go. They look a bit tricky but I'm sure they'll be easy enough once I get the hang of them.

Scrunci Perfect Pony

This is some kind of volumising tool to make your pony tail look.. better? Well, more volumised. I'll be interested to see if this works!

ga4

Lady Jayne Tangleze

I have actually already tried this out, and it's a great little addition for my handbag. I have a big detangling brush for every day use, but this is great to pop in my bag and use throughout the day, as it has a little case to keep the bristles from getting broken. Always good to have another one.

Lady Jayne Bobby Pins


Bobby pins are always highly appreciated, as they seem to go missing all the time, no matter how hard I try to keep track of them!

Lady Jayne Flexi Band


I actually reviewed their original flexi band here, this one is part of the Sport Luxe range. I actually also have this one at home, but they're always handy to keep with you when you travel.

ga5

Bhave Rescue Shampoo & Conditioner

I've heard a lot about Bhave haircare, but have never tried them out, so this will be a good opportunity. This particular range is for damaged hair, which will work well with my bleached and dyed hair.

Polished London Dry Shampoo in Blighty Brunette

I've also tried this dry shampoo before, and I really like it. Unfortunately I'm no longer a brunette, so I'll have to wait to use this bottle when I've dyed my hair back or let it grow out a bit more.

Klorane Dry Shampoo

I've tried this dry shampoo once before, many years ago, and didn't like it. I have a feeling it may have been a dodgy one though, as so many people I know seem to love it. Now that I've received one, I'll have to give it a go and try them out again.

ga6

LDN Skins Self Tan Mousse

I'm not much of a tanner, so I'll probably pass this on to my sister. This looks like a huge amount of product though, which is always good. I've never heard of this brand either, so hopefully it's good.

Pure Tan Instant Tanning Foam


I've had a few Pure Tan products before, and I always ended up passing them on to my sister and she fell in love. I'll make sure I give this one to her as well, as she loved it last time.

Pure Tan Face Tan


Another tanning product. Will probably pass this one on to my sister as well.

Pure Tan Coconut Body Creme

I have tried this body creme before as I received a sample in one of the subscription boxes I used to receive. I remember loving the smell, so I'm pretty happy to receive this.

ga7

Soda & Co Sugar Scrub in Orange Splash

I'd never heard of Soda & Co before this event, but this smells delicious so I'll definitely be trying it. Unfortunately, some of it leaked into the bag and got over some of the other products, but it was easy to clean up luckily.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

I've been wanting to try this for a little while, so I'm excited to have received it. I love everything Body Shop so it's always a good addition.

ga8

Lon Vitalite C3, C1 and Collagen Crystal Eye Masks

I'm a huge fan of Lon Vitalite and already have a huge deposit of them in my drawer, waiting to be used up. One of my favourites is the C1, so I'm really excited to get more of these!

ga9

Swisspers Blot Off Oil Tissues

These are life savers in summer time. I have another pack of these that are almost finished off, so this is a very welcome addition to my makeup bag.

Innoxa Skin Perfecting Pore Vanishing Cream

I have a tube of this already and love it, so I'm pretty happy to receive another one. I find this really helps in keeping my fine lines blurred!

Avene Thermal Water

This is another summer life saver. I always carry a little spray bottle of this around in my handbag. A quick spritz is all you need.

ga10

Bioderma

I've tried Bioderma once, and it made me break out. My friend also tried the same batch, which made her break out. I have a suspicion we may have received old stock, or dodgy stock, so I will give this another go and see if there's any difference. Bioderma were very generous in giving a huge full sized bottle, too.

Premium Spa Ultra Firming Body Balm

This sounds really interesting, and I can't wait to try it out. It contains some interesting ingredients, so I'll definitely post a review once I've tried it out.

Gaia Skincare Trio

We actually received two packs of these mini trios (or at least, I did in my gift bag) so it's a good amount to test out these products. I'm particularly interested in testing out the toner, as I've run out of my usual toner.

ga11

Lush Cupcake Facial Mask

I love Cupcake, and have tried this a number of times. This little sample tub is enough for about three or four masks, so I'm pretty happy about that. This was made fresh at the event, too.

Lush Shower Gel in The Olive Branch

Sadly, this also leaked a little bit in the bag. But that's okay, as I didn't lose too much of it. I've never tried this one before, so this will be a great time to try it out.

Lush Sea Vegetable Soap

I've tried a bunch of different soaps from Lush before, but I haven't had the chance to try this one. This one smells pretty nice, too. I can't wait to try it out.

ga12

Sally Hansen Nail Enamel

We got three gorgeous colours in the gift bag, which was pretty generous. I already have one of these colours, but I'll just pass it on to my sister who is a bit of a nail junkie. The other two colours will make a great addition to my ever growing collection, though.

ga13

Elegant Touch Express Press On Manicure

I've had pretty good luck with the very few press on manicures that I've tired in the past, so I have high hopes for these ones. I adore the colours I received as well, as they are very neutral and work friendly.

Revitanail Instant Dry Drops

I can't wait to try this. I'm always looking for the new innovative quick dry product for my nails, and this could very well be it. I also usually like most Revitanail products that I've tried too, so I'm sure this will be great as well.

Revitanail Keratin Strengthening Serum

My nails sometimes get very weak, especially if I've been swatching a lot of nail polish colours. I'll definitely be using this and hopefully it helps get my claws nice and strong.

ga14

DB Lip Gloss and Blush

I've tried out a few products from DB so I'm always happy to try out more. DB has really cleaned up their brand over the last few years too, and they've been pumping out some great products. I'll be really interested to try out these new goodies!

ga15

Glam Affair Pigment


I hadn't heard of this brand before now, but it looks fairly promising. I adore the colour.

Blinc Mascara
I've heard good things about this mascara before, so I'm really excited to give it a go. I'm pretty sure I received a sample size a long time ago, tried it, and loved it.

Shanghai Suzy Lipstick

Sadly I received a colour I already have, so I'll probably give this away to another beauty lover. I absolutely love Shanghai Suzy lippies though so this was a real treat for those who haven't tried them before.


ga16

Ettica Brush

I'm so excited to try out some products from Ettica. I hadn't heard of them before today, but they seem like a great brand! I will definitely be buying more product from them in future.

Furless Brush

I'm a huge fan of Furless products, so this was definitely a plus for me. I've been looking for some more miniature sized brushes for my makeup bag that I take to work, so this will be perfect. Plus it's super cute.

Skindinavia Makeup Spray

I've never tried Skindinavia before, believe it or not. If you haven't heard all the amazing things about this, I recommend you do your research! This is only a miniature bottle but I can imagine it'll last a long time. This is a great opportunity to try a cult classic.


ga17

Boe Professional Pro Finish BB Cream & Concealer

I was lucky enough to receive light, which is the perfect colour for me. I've been really wanting to try out more Boe products, as my local Big W doesn't stock any makeup. I love the fact that this has a little concealer pot in the lid as well.

Boe Velveted Soft Colour Matte Lipstick

This is such a vibrant colour. I've managed to get my hands on a few of the diamond lippies from Boe, but never the matte ones, so I'm intrigued to see how it goes.

Boe Eyeshadow Duo

I actually have one or two of these lying around from when I visited another Big W and just grabbed what I could. Luckily I don't already have these shades. I'll be interested to see how this goes as well, as I haven't actually tried the other duos yet.


ga18

Eyelure Lengthening Starter Kit

Firstly, can I say I love Eyelure's new packaging. It's so pretty and sophisticated. My eyelashes are already super long, so I doubt I need this kit. I will give it a go for review purposes (ahem, yes, review purposes. I don't want crazy long lashes at all...)


ga19

Bijoux Temporary Jewellery Tattoos

I've actually tried Bijoux in the past and fell in love. I seriously can't wait to use out the designs that I got. These are so unique and pretty, and different to the ones I've already tried. I love the Egyptian theme, too. I reviewed some similar temp tatts from Bijoux Tattoos late last year, which you can read about here.


ga20

Poise Microliners
Lady products. I don't need these, luckily. Passed on to my sister.

Footcare Maxi Gel Inserts

I actually can't wait to try these out. These feel like they'll be ultra supportive and really great on my feet. Bring on the heels!

Brauer Stress

This is anti-stress goodness for you, similar to Rescue Remedy. (A life saver, for me.) I was really excited to try this out until I realised it didn't have a dropper? How strange. I'll do my best to try it out anyway and see how it stacks up.

Thank You Hand Sanitiser

This is probably one of my most used products from the day already. I chucked this in my regular handbag, as they're good to carry around. I've since used it loads of times, I'm addicted to the scent, and it makes my skin feel amazing. Great job, Thank You.

Manicare Nail File

I have so many of these it's not funny, but they always come in handy when you're in a jam. I keep this one beside my bed for those just in case moments. (You know when you're just about to go to sleep and you've realised your nail is a bit broken and it keeps getting caught on your blanket and you just can't sleep until it's fixed? No, okay just me then.)


ga21

Well Naturally Dark Chocolate

I'm not a fan of sugarless chocolate so I passed this on to my boyfriend. He said it's pretty nice for chocolate without sugar, and has eaten it all already.

Thank You Jam Packed Nut Bar

Another sample for my boyfriend. He scoffed this down pretty quick and said it was yummy. He loves this kind of thing.


ga22

Klorane Shampoo Samples

I think I was given the conditioner samples too somewhere, but for some reason I didn't photograph them together. I've got a few of these samples, and admittedly never tried them. They're stacking up now so maybe I should.

Schwarzkopf Fortifier Treatment

This is a treatment for extremely damaged hair. I wouldn't say mine is extreme, but with all the hair dying it probably could do with a freshen up. I'll probably give this a go over the weekend and see what it does for my hair!

Nuxe Multi Purpose Dry Oil

It took me forever to figure out what the heck this was, and why so many people in the beauty community seem to love it. Dry oil that I can use on my face, hair, body. Hmm sounds interesting and I'll definitely have to give it a go.

Enbacci Detoxifying Clay Mask & Exfoliating Scrub 

I'm so excited to get these samples. When I attended the Enbacci event last year, there were a few products I really wanted to try, the two of them being the above samples. Once I've tried the samples, I can figure out if I think they're good enough to buy full sized bottles of.


ga23

Gift 

I got this gift for being one of the first 10 guests to arrive. We received a gorgeous little bag, a little Soda & Co lip balm, a kabuki brush and a little eye shadow pigment. (Although upon closer inspection it appears to be a gel liner. I guess I'll just have to give it a go and see how it works!)


ga24

Samples

On top of all the deluxe samples we received, we also got a bunch of sachet samples. Bring on the samples!


ga25

Bevilles Jewelled Heart USB Drive

This is a gorgeous idea. The jewelled side comes off and reveals your USB drive. This also comes with a nifty chains so you can wear it around your neck. Totally glam secret agent.


ga26

Benefit Puff Off!

The Benefit side of things was definitely my favourite part of the day. We learnt heaps of cool things, as well as getting the amazing new Puff Off. This is my new baby, I use it every day and I'm totally in love. I'll be reviewing this very soon for everyone.

Porefessional License To Blot

This product doesn't come out until mid-Feb, but it's oh so amazing. It's basically blotting paper, in a stick version. Yes, you heard right. I'll be reviewing this as well as I have also fallen in love with this.

Porefessional Primer

Ahhh a classic product. I have a tube of this already but always great to have a backup.


ga27

Marzena Shower Smooth Hair Remover Cream
This was another gift for arriving early. I've never heard of this brand before, but I'll definitely give it a go. Anything that removes my pesky leg hair is a friend of mine. I actually can't wait to give this a go next time I'm in the shower.


ga28

Ettica Lipstick Tray

Yes. Yes, a thousand times yes. I was super duper thrilled to get this, you can't even imagine. I've already started using it and I'm planning on buying more. This was the first time I'd ever heard of Ettica before (which is really frustrating because when I searched "acrylic makeup storage Australia" this brand did not pop up!) but I'll be buying from them again! The packaging is very sturdy and looks great.


ga29

Jeans West Sachel Bag

This is a really cute bag. I love the colour and it's reminds me of a music festival. I showed my mum and she fell in love, so I decided to gift it to her. (Especially since I did also get a voucher for free jeans... won't be showing her that!)


ga30

Info

Heaps of info about all the brands included, as well, which is always great.

Overall, we were totally spoilt. A big thanks to Mel and Erin for organising the event and getting so many amazing brands involved. It was truly great to see the community coming together for a big collaboration. It was really nice to meet other bloggers that I had not yet met, too.
Did you go to Glamour Affair? If so, what were your thoughts? Have you tried any of the above products?

  8. That is a crazy amazing goodie bag!

    The twist pins are life savers. I used them when I had shoulder length hair, when I pulled it back for work. Now that my hair is longer I use them for buns. I have to add more than two, unlike when my hair was shorter, since my hair is so much heavier now.

    1. It's definitely crazy - crazy good! When I first co-hosted The Sparkling Soiree with Melissa last year, I was doing it so that Australian bloggers can really pull together and make a community out of themselves. I'm really glad this idea is growing and other bloggers are taking that on! xx

  12. That is one AMAZING goody bag! You're a lucky lass. :o)

    You'll love the bhave shampoo & conditioner - after the first wash, I felt the difference in my hair. The riot control hair oil is fast becoming an HG product for me too. Their products are expensive, but so worth it & you're blessed to have received it! Hope it makes a difference for you too.

    I'll have to check out those gel cushions as well, seeing as it appears they're wider than their normal ones (which I am using) and I'm cursed with wider feet than the average woman. *sigh*

    1. All of us were definitely lucky to receive so many goodies! And ohh I'm so excited to hear people tell me that Bhave is great. I really can't wait to try it now! The gel cushions feel so nice, they're definitely bigger than usual! xx

  13. Wowza! I'm pretty sure you don't need to shop for a few months haha. My laptop had a tough time scrolling through this post, it was so jam packed haha! I've used the twist pins before. I have long thick hair and it makes putting it into a bun so much easier and without a zillion bobby pins. For me, it wasn't that secure if I had to do activities but day to day was fine. Hope you enjoy trying everything out!!

  14. How exciting! I saw all the pictures on Instagram, and it looked like a lot of fun. I love those pin twirls - definitely give them a go!

Boe Professional Pro Finish BB Cream & Concealer

I was lucky enough to receive light, which is the perfect colour for me. I've been really wanting to try out more Boe products, as my local Big W doesn't stock any makeup. I love the fact that this has a little concealer pot in the lid as well.

Boe Velveted Soft Colour Matte Lipstick

This is such a vibrant colour. I've managed to get my hands on a few of the diamond lippies from Boe, but never the matte ones, so I'm intrigued to see how it goes.

Boe Eyeshadow Duo

I actually have one or two of these lying around from when I visited another Big W and just grabbed what I could. Luckily I don't already have these shades. I'll be interested to see how this goes as well, as I haven't actually tried the other duos yet.

Eyelure Lengthening Starter Kit

Firstly, can I say I love Eyelure's new packaging. It's so pretty and sophisticated. My eyelashes are already super long, so I doubt I need this kit. I will give it a go for review purposes (ahem, yes, review purposes. I don't want crazy long lashes at all...)

Bijoux Temporary Jewellery Tattoos

I've actually tried Bijoux in the past and fell in love. I seriously can't wait to use out the designs that I got. These are so unique and pretty, and different to the ones I've already tried. I love the Egyptian theme, too. I reviewed some similar temp tatts from Bijoux Tattoos late last year, which you can read about here.

Poise Microliners
Lady products. I don't need these, luckily. Passed on to my sister.

Footcare Maxi Gel Inserts

I actually can't wait to try these out. These feel like they'll be ultra supportive and really great on my feet. Bring on the heels!

Brauer Stress

This is anti-stress goodness for you, similar to Rescue Remedy. (A life saver, for me.) I was really excited to try this out until I realised it didn't have a dropper? How strange. I'll do my best to try it out anyway and see how it stacks up.

Thank You Hand Sanitiser

This is probably one of my most used products from the day already. I chucked this in my regular handbag, as they're good to carry around. I've since used it loads of times, I'm addicted to the scent, and it makes my skin feel amazing. Great job, Thank You.

Manicare Nail File

I have so many of these it's not funny, but they always come in handy when you're in a jam. I keep this one beside my bed for those just in case moments. (You know when you're just about to go to sleep and you've realised your nail is a bit broken and it keeps getting caught on your blanket and you just can't sleep until it's fixed? No, okay just me then.)

Well Naturally Dark Chocolate

I'm not a fan of sugarless chocolate so I passed this on to my boyfriend. He said it's pretty nice for chocolate without sugar, and has eaten it all already.

Thank You Jam Packed Nut Bar

Another sample for my boyfriend. He scoffed this down pretty quick and said it was yummy. He loves this kind of thing.

Klorane Shampoo Samples

I think I was given the conditioner samples too somewhere, but for some reason I didn't photograph them together. I've got a few of these samples, and admittedly never tried them. They're stacking up now so maybe I should.

Schwarzkopf Fortifier Treatment

This is a treatment for extremely damaged hair. I wouldn't say mine is extreme, but with all the hair dying it probably could do with a freshen up. I'll probably give this a go over the weekend and see what it does for my hair!

Nuxe Multi Purpose Dry Oil

It took me forever to figure out what the heck this was, and why so many people in the beauty community seem to love it. Dry oil that I can use on my face, hair, body. Hmm sounds interesting and I'll definitely have to give it a go.

Enbacci Detoxifying Clay Mask & Exfoliating Scrub 

I'm so excited to get these samples. When I attended the Enbacci event last year, there were a few products I really wanted to try, the two of them being the above samples. Once I've tried the samples, I can figure out if I think they're good enough to buy full sized bottles of.

Gift 

I got this gift for being one of the first 10 guests to arrive. We received a gorgeous little bag, a little Soda & Co lip balm, a kabuki brush and a little eye shadow pigment. (Although upon closer inspection it appears to be a gel liner. I guess I'll just have to give it a go and see how it works!)


ga24

Samples

On top of all the deluxe samples we received, we also got a bunch of sachet samples. Bring on the samples!

Bevilles Jewelled Heart USB Drive

This is a gorgeous idea. The jewelled side comes off and reveals your USB drive. This also comes with a nifty chains so you can wear it around your neck. Totally glam secret agent.

Benefit Puff Off!

The Benefit side of things was definitely my favourite part of the day. We learnt heaps of cool things, as well as getting the amazing new Puff Off. This is my new baby, I use it every day and I'm totally in love. I'll be reviewing this very soon for everyone.

Porefessional License To Blot

This product doesn't come out until mid-Feb, but it's oh so amazing. It's basically blotting paper, in a stick version. Yes, you heard right. I'll be reviewing this as well as I have also fallen in love with this.

Porefessional Primer

Ahhh a classic product. I have a tube of this already but always great to have a backup.


ga27

Marzena Shower Smooth Hair Remover Cream
This was another gift for arriving early. I've never heard of this brand before, but I'll definitely give it a go. Anything that removes my pesky leg hair is a friend of mine. I actually can't wait to give this a go next time I'm in the shower.


ga28

Ettica Lipstick Tray

Yes. Yes, a thousand times yes. I was super duper thrilled to get this, you can't even imagine. I've already started using it and I'm planning on buying more. This was the first time I'd ever heard of Ettica before (which is really frustrating because when I searched "acrylic makeup storage Australia" this brand did not pop up!) but I'll be buying from them again! The packaging is very sturdy and looks great.

Jeans West Sachel Bag

This is a really cute bag. I love the colour and it's reminds me of a music festival. I showed my mum and she fell in love, so I decided to gift it to her. (Especially since I did also get a voucher for free jeans... won't be showing her that!)

Info

Heaps of info about all the brands included, as well, which is always great.

Overall, we were totally spoilt. A big thanks to Mel and Erin for organising the event and getting so many amazing brands involved. It was truly great to see the community coming together for a big collaboration. It was really nice to meet other bloggers that I had not yet met, too.
Did you go to Glamour Affair? If so, what were your thoughts? Have you tried any of the above products?

  8. That is a crazy amazing goodie bag!

    The twist pins are life savers. I used them when I had shoulder length hair, when I pulled it back for work. Now that my hair is longer I use them for buns. I have to add more than two, unlike when my hair was shorter, since my hair is so much heavier now.

  11. :O dear god that is an insane goodie bag. Everything looks so fab *jealous crying*. Haha isn't it great to see how Australian beauty blogs are gaining more of a presence/community? So excited for things to come :D

    1. It's definitely crazy - crazy good! When I first co-hosted The Sparkling Soiree with Melissa last year, I was doing it so that Australian bloggers can really pull together and make a community out of themselves. I'm really glad this idea is growing and other bloggers are taking that on! xx

  12. That is one AMAZING goody bag! You're a lucky lass. :o)

    You'll love the bhave shampoo & conditioner - after the first wash, I felt the difference in my hair. The riot control hair oil is fast becoming an HG product for me too. Their products are expensive, but so worth it & you're blessed to have received it! Hope it makes a difference for you too.

    I'll have to check out those gel cushions as well, seeing as it appears they're wider than their normal ones (which I am using) and I'm cursed with wider feet than the average woman. *sigh*

    1. All of us were definitely lucky to receive so many goodies! And ohh I'm so excited to hear people tell me that Bhave is great. I really can't wait to try it now! The gel cushions feel so nice, they're definitely bigger than usual! xx

  13. Wowza! I'm pretty sure you don't need to shop for a few months haha. My laptop had a tough time scrolling through this post, it was so jam packed haha! I've used the twist pins before. I have long thick hair and it makes putting it into a bun so much easier and without a zillion bobby pins. For me, it wasn't that secure if I had to do activities but day to day was fine. Hope you enjoy trying everything out!!

  14. How exciting! I saw all the pictures on Instagram, and it looked like a lot of fun. I love those pin twirls - definitely give them a go!

  15. We were super spoiled!! Such a fun event. Which colour did you receive from Shanghai Suzy? I got Amethyst which isn't something I'd usually wear.
