THE CLOTHES SHOW 2016 PART III | GOODY BAG HAUL


Let's face it this is probably the post you've been waiting for! Part III of my Clothes Show diary is a peek into my goody bags!

If you haven't already then catch up on ⟶Part I⟵ & ⟶Part II


This year I got lucky and grabbed a Platinum ticket for the same price as a standard ticket.
The perks being a special Clothes Show goody bag and a great seat in the Alcatel theatre for the fashion show.

The Clothes Show bag this year was a little hit and miss though, based on my expectations.
I think I was hoping for something like perfume, a watch, new ghds, a car... you know like the goody bags the celebs get at awards shows?! 😂

The 2016 bag was stocked with a fair few laundry detergent samples, toothpaste and muscle ache heat pads from Clothes Show sponsors, which I subsequently snubbed.
However most of these genuinely useful items will probably come in handy soon and I'll thank my lucky stars I got them!



One of my favourite surprises was the limited edition Barry M nail polish and Popband in association with The Clothes Show.
Barry M are one of my go to brands for nail polish so this gorgeous camel/nude shade was a welcome treat!
Especially as nude goes well with virtually everything, you just can't go wrong.
Guys, you did good.

POPBAND

Now I actually first discovered Popband 3 years ago at the last Clothes Show event I went to!
One of their limited edition hair ties was in my goody bag and I wore it to death, so much so that all of the writing on it has practically faded away.
I've since built up quite a collection of patterned and colourfully wonderful Popbands!
They really are the bees knees!!

Does exactly what it says on the tin - "kind on your hair and cute on your wrist!"
Kink free up dos all round! 😄


BETTY.ME

Also included in the show goody bag was a betty.me sample subscription box.
betty.me is a monthly sub box full of all the essentials any gal will want/need during her period!
It's like the ultimate little treat box for when it's that time of the month!

I think it's such a cute idea, especially for those times when you can't be bothered to leave the house for that much needed chocolate hit or an emergency stock up on pads!

WHAT I GOT IN THE BOX:
  • bandzee Hair Ties (a new type of Popband?!)
  • Teapigs Chocolate Flake Tea
  • amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash
  • Vichy Idélia Skin Sleep - a recovery night gel-balm so excited to try this!
  • Newtons Labs T-Zone Skincare Spot Zapping Gel
  • Cocoba Salted Butter Caramel Truffle - Soooo much yum
  • Montâgne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel-Off Face Mask - My fave type of mask 😈
  • betty.me period pads 



MODELS OWN

The deal with the Models Own goody bag was to Pick any 4 items for £10 and receive some extra 'free' delights in with your chosen stash.
This unfortunately proved rather difficult for me as I have about 30 Models Own nail polishes so trying to choose colours I didn't already have was hard!

In the end I went for:
 A limited edition glitter top coat made specifically for The Clothes Show, a nice little memento! - SHOW STOPPER 2
A new chrome colour from their mermaidalicious holochrome collection - CHAMELEON
A pastel, subtle neon coral from their polish for tans selection, as I LOVE how tanned these shades actually make you look 😂 . - BEACH BAG
Last but not least, a Gold Glitter polish from their HyperGel collection - SHEER SPARKLE


IN THE GOODY BAG: 

Artstix gold nail beads - I have a few of these by Ciaté London and they always look awesome for an accent nail
Mini Nail polish in Pastel Pink
Mini Nail HyperGel polish in Red Lustre
Artstix nail art pen in black - Perfect timing as my other Models Own pen had dried out!
Myshadow Loose Eyeshadow Powder in 20. Dark Knight - Excited to try this
4 sided nail buffer - These always come in super handy when I'm doing my acrylics!
Festival Face & Body Paint in Silver - an excuse to glitter me up!



SPECTRUM COLLECTIONS

Already have so much love for this brand and their incredibly vibrant make up brushes so I was giddy with gleeeee when I saw that they had a concession at The Clothes Show this year!

So I've had my eye on their 'sushi roll' brush case for a WHILE! Every time I see it on Instagram with it's beautifully iridescent shine, I die a little inside.
Lo and behold it was on sale for £15 at their stand, instead of the usual £24.99. Of course I snatched it up immediately!
Just look how pretty 😍

There were also some incredible deals on their brush sets but I was being VERY sensible as I'm going travelling soon so I thought there was no point getting new brushes 😂
It was very hard to walk away. TRUST!


BARRY M

This goody bag was crazy for the money! £10 and 12 products that were worth over £60.
😱
You didn't get to choose what was in the bag so it was a random mixture, kind of like a lucky dip!
I do already have a lot of Barry M nail polishes so unfortunately I did end up with 2 duplicates but hey now I have some extra Christmas presents for someone 🙈

IN THE BAG:


Loud Mouth Extreme Lip Colour in Diva - Super pigmented lip paint with a fruity smell!
Matte Me Up Lip Crayon in Shade 1 coral/peach - Soft creamy lip crayon, very subtle matte
Cor Balmy Lip Balm in Trouble & Strife - Tinted red lip balm with buttery moisturising core
Nail Art Pen in White - A push down felt tip pen-esque nib perfect to get artsy with!
Matte Lip Paint in 153. Pink Ribbon - Similar consistency to the lip crayon a soft subtle matte
Get Up & Glow - Bronzer, Blusher & Highlighter Palette
6 NAIL POLISHES
Limited Edition Lolly Gloss in Pink Candy
Aquarium Collection in Atlantis (duplicate no. 1!)
Silk Collection in Forest 
Aquarium Collection in Mediterranean (duplicate no. 2!)
Gelly Hi-Shine in Coconut
Glitter Paint in Catwalk Queen









Soooo many goodies!
Ok so I didn't actually buy any clothes at The Clothes Show 😂  but the beauty delights are just so good that I couldn't resist them!

I hope you've enjoyed my run down of experience at The Clothes Show 2016!
