I was delighted to receive an invitation to attend the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards 2011 this morning in the very beautiful One Marylebone on the edge of Regents Park.
Cosmo's annual beauty awards are in their ninth year and the winning products are chosen by a team of judges including top make up artists, leading beauty journalists and celebrities such as Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts. A total of eighty-two products won a prize including my personal favourites: Benefit Dandelion Pink Face Powder - "Ultimate Blusher" and Moroccanoil Treatment Oil - "Best Leave-in Treatment Oil".
However for me the highlight of the event had to be the fabulous goody bag each attendee was handed by the Cosmo girls as we left the event with our awards in hand.
Stuffed full of beauty, skincare and haircare products I cannot wait to test everything out. Back at the office I delved into the bag to discover Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin.
I instantly tried them out and couldn't believe how easy it was to create the elusive "Top Knot" that stayed in place for the rest of the day and (my colleagues assured me) looked pretty cool...!
Beauty Scribbler posted a fantastic video demo of how to use the pins just two days ago:
The Spin Pins are available in Boots, Recommend Retail Price: £4.99.
