Playboy Makeup Launch | OOTN

Friday, 4 April 2014

Last night I attended the launch of Playboy Makeup in the UK! I was so excited to finally see what lies behind those infamously exclusive doors to the Playboy club on Park Lane. This is such a luxurious venue which is usually a private members club I believe. I am a huge supporter of Playboy, I even managed to get a quote from Hugh Hefner in to a piece of English coursework on feminism (a positive one obviously) Although Mr Hefner wasn't present, there were the most fantastic group of celebrities and suitably fashionable individuals.

My outfit for the evening had to be glamorous so I went all out with a classic black dress from Zara, teamed with some heels (also from Zara) and my current favourite cream coat from M&S. I accessorised this look with my Louis Vuitton bag and lots of jewellery.

Anyway, back to the glorious makeup. The collection has been specially crafted with spring/summer in mind. So the collection has the most gorgeous bronzers, bright lipsticks and neon nail varnishes. Perfect for sunny days and holiday evenings where you quickly sweep on some bronzer and a bit of lipstick! 

The bronzers come in both matte (perfect for contouring) and a shimmery blush (which would perfect for highlighting)

The Playboy makeup lipsticks come in pretty much every shade of pink you could imagine, perfect if you are like me and tend to match shades that suit your skin tone. There is also a classic pin up girl type red which I adore and will definitely be stocking up on!

This was my favourite lipstick, I believe it was called "bubblegum pink" and would be perfect with a black dress!

These nail varnishes are in such fun shades and so different to anything else currently available on the high street. The varnish's solution is amazing in the fact that the varnish looks exactly the same on your nail as in the bottle, which has been a problem for me in the past with other brands. I tested the nail varnish on my nails when I got home from the event in the silver shade (that was part of my goodie bag!) and it was the most gorgeous liquid silver you have ever seen (expect a photo on instagram very soon)

After I had fully examined all of the glorious makeup it was time to enjoy the party! The lovely hostesses put on the most amazing hospitality, with the most delicious canapés and drinks constantly flowing throughout the night! Some of us may have been guilty of taking more than one canapé at a time (guilty!) the duck spring rolls were a particular favourite amongst our group!

Here are some photos of the fabulous evening:

I loved this! "Ears & Tails" 

It really was such an amazing event to celebrate the launch of what I'm sure will be a very successful makeup line. I feel very privileged to have been able to take part in such a wonderful event and would like to say a huge thank you to the lovely ladies who organised it, they really did such a fantastic job! And another thank you for the very generous goodie bag! I would also like to point you guys in the direction of two amazing beauty bloggers who were also at the event their links are:
