Bourjois Enchanting Collection #24hrpartyready Event with GHD new Curve Curlers

Leave a Comment

I headed down to the #24hrpartyready blogger event at the famous St Martins Lane Hotel in London. Bourjois certainly know how to pull of an AMAZING event, there was lots of newness presented by expert nail and makeup artists, a team of hair stylists courtesy of GHD’s, and a FAB fashion illustrator. Tres Chic!

Firstly, the beautiful venue of St Martin’s Lane Hotel shouted pure glamour… the perfect place to get you in a party mood! The room was styled with the most gorgeous array of pink and red flowers to compliment the eye-stopping glittery product displays. I adored the elegant, Parisian vibe (a definite a winner for me) To top it all off, St Martins Lane Hotel supplied a delicious array of Michelin star worthy canapés and frutilcious cocktails.

Bourjois' Enchanting Collection.

I was drawn straight away to Bourjois’ new Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks, in shades 09 Happy Nude Year and 03 Hot Pepper, which have a fantastic vibrant matte, and long lasting finish. These Velvet Lips are lightweight with a thin, non-sticky texture lip lacquer that applies easily. I love how you can eat, and drink as much as you like (yet still look amazing…with no need to top up!). I wore shade 09 Happy Nude Year, which is a subtler, more wearable colour that I adore. I really recommend the Rouge Edition Velvets to ALL lippie lovers out there! 

Next stop for me was the comfy nail booth, where I got to choose a funky nail design created with their new shades of 1 Seconde nail polishes. There two new shades 44 Grey To Meet You-a lovely grey colour and 45 Gliterizer-a silver glitter, are perfect for the festive season. Bourjois' 11 Rouge In Style-a great red colour for christmas, was also displayed. 

I must admit, I did take a long time to choose my nail design and colour… but I got there in the end! I loved all the designs, yet opted for a unique twist on a Christmas look. I also loved how the 1 Seconde nail polish in shade 44 Grey To Meet You, which worked fantastically well with the 45 Glizterizer topcoat. Here’s the finished look:

I never normally wear green shades on my fingernails, yet I ADORE this cute combo- Bourjois sparkly base with a touch of green for the festive spirit! 

I popped over to Bourjois' makeup artists who introduced me to their new Quad Smokey Stories Palllettes, which are wonderful! There are 8 shades to choose from… I LOVE all of them (typical!) 

The makeup artist smoked up my eyes with the gorgeous Quad Palettes in shade Grey and Night accompanied with Bourjois' Volume 1 Seconde Ultra Black mascara and their Ultra Black Mega Liner (perfect for that night time party look)

Bourjois' new Delice De Poudre Bronzer was used to give my cheeks a warm glow. 

Bourjois have released to new fantastic shades of the Color Edition 24Hr cream shadows, which have been around for a while now. 07 Flocon d'or-a perfect golden highlight colour, and 08 Maroon Givre-warm maroon brown with a touch of gold shimmer. I love the cream texture which is easily buildable to create a light or more intense look. 

I have always loved the original 1 Seconde Mascara (check out my review: ) which I use constantly… therefore the release of their Ultra Black shade completed my evening! It works  flawlessly with the Ultra Black Mega Liner, which has an angled tip to help you adjust the shape and size of your flirtatious flick. 

GHD’s stylists totally re-vamped my hair with their new Curve Curlers...a MUST have essential to glam up and create red carpet hair styles for upcoming Christmas and New Year parties. I was glad to see that GHD’s wonderful hair stylist team offered a range of party looks to choose from… boy I was pleased with the results! I chose The Runwave Look, recommended for my long hair, which promised to give me natural beach waves.

Magically my hair was transformed… I LOVED my new look. Although my hair is naturally straight, in the past I haven’t been a lover of curling my hair, however I found that GHD’s Eclipse curve curlers are very easy to use-supplying the right amount of heat to your hair, to give a glamorous glossy finish. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my long curls were still perfect in the morning! I can’t wait to use my new GHD Curve curlers again (they also have a cool outer body so you cannot burn your precious fingers)

To top it all off… there was a live personalised fashion illustrator Lu, who used Bourjois’ products (Quad Eyeshadow’s, and Velvet Lips) to create stunning beauty portraits of  the guests. I loved how she incorporated Bourjois’ new collection of products into the drawing, to give a unique and edgy sketch.

I will be doing another blog on my verdict of the Quad Eyeshadows and the Colour Edition 24Hr Eyeshadows soon!

I love Bourjois’ enchanting new Christmas collection and GHD’s essential Eclipse hair curlers… what a night to remember! Thank you Bourjois xxx
