Playboy Makeup Launch 2014

Last Thursday I went to the launch of Playboy's new makeup line. Aqua PR held a lovely event at the Playboy Club in Mayfair where bloggers, press and celebs were all invited. It was such a gorgeous set up and the place looked absolutely fabulous. Unfortunately the lighting wasn't necessarily the best for taking photos of the products. Flash just made the photos look a little smokey on my iPhone so I hope these will do for now. I'll definitely be reviewing some of their products so I'll swatch them then for you to get a closer look :)

As soon as my friend Becky and I arrived, we had the chance to have our photo taken with a couple of playboy bunnies before heading to grab a glass of champagne. I haven't received my picture yet but if I don't look too horrendous I shall add that in here at a later date :)

After this I met a lovely blogger called Emma who you definitely need to check out. Her blog's called Miss Emma Charlotte and it's absolutely lovely - jam packed with event posts and OOTD's. She has some better pictures which show the colours of the products from the event as well, so definitely check those out if you get a chance!

The first collection I checked out was their lipsticks. There was pretty much every shade you can imagine, all very spring and summer orientated to coincide with the time of year. The finishes were a mix between matte and satin. My favourite one had to be one of their cute coral pinks which was absolutely perfect for spring/summer.

Next we checked out the blusher and bronzer table. The new line consists of one blush and bronzer each, which are both packaged beautifully in slightly rubberised cases that remind me a bit of Nars. Each product has the famous bunny logo printed into it which I thought was a really lovely touch.

The bronzer is completely matte and great for contouring or an all-over bronze. The blush on the other hand has some shimmer to it but nothing overly glittery. Instead of a straight forward pink, the blush is mottled with pink and bronze tones to create a really unique, sun-kissed flush.

Next we have the nail polishes. There is a shade for pretty much everyone here. You have your glitters, shimmers and finally straight forward block colours. I got Fluro Euro in my goodie bag which you can see below. It's a bright duo chrome pink which I can't wait to wear on my fingers and toes this summer.

And last but not least we have the mascaras and eyeliners. There were 2 mascaras, one for length and one for volume, plus one liquid eyeliner. I was lucky enough to get both the eyeliner and lengthening mascara in my goodie bag which I was far too excited about. I can't wait to give them a go because the eyeliner especially caught my eye at the event. After swatching it on my finger, it seems incredibly pigmented with great durability as rubbing it certainly wouldn't make it come off!

After having a look around at the products, mixing with a few people and watching the bunnies pour the champagne fountain it was time to head for the train back home. I want to say a huge thanks to Aqua PR for inviting me to this launch. It was lots of fun and I can't wait to test out the products. If you want to test them for yourself, I believe they will be available in larger supermarkets very soon. All details will be confirmed as soon as I receive them.
