I haven't written a post in what feels like forever. I had a week break and then I wrote the review for Monster Pet Supplies on the weekend and I've just been so busy with college work, I'm just trying to focus on getting all my work done and I've been going out a little bit more than usual (finally starting to get a social life, HA.) I'm finally back with some blogging inspiration and I've got posts lined up/more to write so hopefully things will start to go more smoothly with balancing everything out. :)
I was very kindly invited to an event on Tuesday to celebrate Collection's
*Me & Ally enjoying our Love Jewel cocktail's.*
*Me & Juliet enjoying ourselves.*
The event was hosted by the lovely Focus PR team in the Wyld Room, W Hotel. It was absolutely beautiful in the hotel and the room we were in was filled with mirror balls everywhere and it was all so glamorous. On the tables there were bowls filled with the new Collection products!

I chatted with the lovely Lauren and Hannah from Focus PR and met the lovely blogger Milly who I've talked to a lot before and it was super nice to actually meet a blogger in the flesh, haha! during the night me, Juliet & Ally got a talk about the new products and I've literally fallen in love with it all. There was a makeup artists who did a fabulous job of giving anyone makeovers and Ally got given some eye shadow and it looked incredible on her, head over to her blog to see the pictures. After having such a blast it came to the end of the night and we were given goodie bags filled with bits from the collection.
*This was my goodie bag.*
My goodie bag was filled with...
Bedazzled Razzle Dazzle Nail Polish - £2.299
In the new collection, Collection have bedazzled nail effects nail polishes and you can choose from four different ones which are Razzle Dazzle, Tea At The Glitz, Love Jewel and Glittersweet. I've actually just noticed that all the cocktails at the event were named after the four polishes, HA. I love when makeup products are given funky names. All of the polishes are priced at a wonderful £2.99 and are perfect for the coming Christmas season. Whether it's the school or work Christmas party or even the family dinner on Christmas day you can't afford not have these on your nails. ;) I was given the silver polish in my goodie bag, I can't wait to test it out. All four polishes are available from Superdrug and Boots.
Bedazzled Glitter Eye Palette - £4.49
Sticking to the glittery theme, the new Collection palette goes really well with the nail polishes. During the night of the event, I watched the makeup artist apply these beautiful colours on other bloggers at the event. Like I also mentioned before head over to Ally's blog to see her amazing look. I know a lot of people love matte eyeshadow's rather than sparkly ones but autumn/winter has just so far been filled with so much glitz and glamour. There are 9 shades to choose from in this amazing palette. Me & Ally didn't get home until a few hours after the event and it stilled looked new as ever on her. Diana Vickers who is a Collection ambassador is a fan of the palette. This can be yours for the small price of £4.49. I'm already picking out which shade I want to wear on Christmas day. This autumn/winter the makeup/clothes trends are all really colourful and sparkly and this palette just adds to it.You can purchase the palette from Boots & Superdrug.
Waterproof Fast Stroke Eyeliner - £2.99
Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this eyeliner came out a few months back. This is just a simple black waterproof eyeliner perfect to get that big bold look on the eyes for this autumn/winter that most of us really want to achieve. Like I always say, I'm not much of a makeup person but these last few weeks I've really been getting into it, Ally is definitely going to be teaching me how to get the perfect look with this eyeliner. It's available to purchase from Superdrug.
Big Fake Ultimate Mascara - £5.99
Lastly, I was given one of their new mascara's. You may remember that Collection had another mascara which was called the "Big Fake Mascara" which was so popular with us bloggers. (I had it and it was fantastic.) I nearly passed out with excitement when I saw they had another mascara out AND look at how amazing the brush is, you honestly don't find brushes as big as that any more, it can be so much effort putting mascara on with tiny little brushes but this is seriously everything most of us have been dreaming of. If you don't wear fake lashes but you want that sort of affect then this is definitely the one for you. This is priced at £5.99 which is so much cheaper than other mascara's out there and it's just so worth the price. It's available in black, ultra black and brown from Superdrug & Boots.
If there's anything from the goodie bag that you'd like me to review then let me know in the comments! thanks again to the lovely Focus PR team for inviting me along to the event. :)
Will you be purchasing any of these products?
