Part 1: What really happens at our PRIMPED David Jones Look Book Events (and a sneak inside the legendary goodie bag)

Mon, 10 October 2011 12:41PM

So, this year was my first time hosting our PRIMPED David Jones Look Book events and without sounding too boastful, I had an absolute ball. I’m pretty sure all the Primpettes that attended had a cracker of a time too, but seeing as though seats to the events each year are numbered, I wanted to share with you all the fun and games that we got up to over the month.

To kick things off, we had a handful (well, just over a handful to be exact) of experts from all different areas, like skincare, sun-care, makeup, hair, body-care and nails, that travelled around the different states and stores with me to share their smartest, most useful, money-can’t-buy tips with our guests (stay tuned, because I’ll be sharing those tips with you later this week).

Here’s a shot of the gang and I from an event.

  PRIMPED David Jones

From left to right:  Amy from Aussie skincare brand Invisible Zinc, the always-bubbly Emma from everyone’s favourite body range, Burt’s Bees, next to Justin from eco-minded haircare brand, Prive, who is standing next to the super-healthy, super kind, Paula from skincare company, Comvita. Then, on the flipside of moi, we have smoky-eye expert, Laurel, from Rimmel London and last but not least, cheeky Karon from nail powerhouse OPI.  (Missing from the shot is Makeup Maestro, Michael Brown from Lancome, who you can check out in action over here)

Apart from the obvious: getting to hang out and present with a bunch of beauty know-it-alls, the real hook for me was being given the opportunity to (finally!) meet you guys. I’ve got to say, I was blown away at how committed and excited all our Primpettes and their + 1’s were.  And the best bit? We had a heap of beauty bloggers show up at each event which meant I got to learn a whole lot from you ladies, starting with this list of Aussie-based beauty bloggers that you all need to make friends with, STAT.

5 Very Excellent Beauty Bloggers (in no particular order), that loved the Look Book events and that I just know you’re going to love, too.

Do you have a beauty blog that we need to know about?

Did you blog about our PRIMPED Look Book events? If you did, make sure you flick me the link and I’ll add it to the list. 

What do you think of the goodie bag? Pretty impressive, huh?

    Hey Eliza,

    I attended the first look book event in Melbourne and it was fabulous, you did such a good job. I loved all the beauty experts giving us great tips and the goodie bag was amazing :)

    Hope I get to attend another look book event!

    All you Eastern states ladies are very lucky!! Wishing Perth got more stuff, it’s lonely over here LOL.
    Love the look of that goodie bag too :)

    Thanks for the links to the blogs!!! They are great :)

    I really love blogs that are written by people that dont have any advertising or get perks from companies. Once they have ties with particular brands, it makes me think their reviews arent as truthful or honest. I love hearing reviews from people that have actually paid for the item and whether or not they would buy it again.
