Shopping Roundup // Unboxing My Indie Expo Canada 2017 VIP Bag

by - Wednesday, October 04, 2017

Oh my gosh this post has been a long time coming. I'm sorry, guys! There were so many posts to write up after Indie Expo Canada this year that this one completely slipped my mind. But we're here now, so let's take a look at all the goodies I got in my VIP Bag at Indie Expo Canada.

The VIP ticket itself was about $88 CAD after tax and it included this goodie bag, early entry to the event, and some coupons! Definitely worth it, in my opinion.

Let's start with the polish!

Alter Ego Generous Beauty 

Generous Beauty is a gorgeous teal with scattered holo glitter. I've actually already swatched this one so you can check that out if you want!

Bliss Polish VIP@IEC

There were two different shades you could get from Bliss Polish this year - a blue and a pink. I got this lovely pink creme with a healthy dose of gold shimmer named VIP@IEC!

Colors by Llarowe Oh Canada

This is one of my favourites from the bag, though I still haven't used it yet! This is Oh Canada by Colors by Llarowe and as you can see it's a gorgeous red linear holo.

Ever After Diamonds Are Forever

Another favourite! Diamonds Are Forever is the offering from Ever After and it's a stunning blue packed with holo glitter of different sizes. It definitely sparkles like a diamond. :)

Fair Maiden Polish Toronto Sunrise

One of my favourite brands, Fair Maiden Polish contributed the beauty that is Toronto Sunrise - a bubblegum pink with a hint of electric violet shimmer.

Fiendish Fancies The Fool 

Fiendish Fancies was another brand that had a whole bunch of options that you could get in your VIP bag. There were different amounts of each polish available in 7 different horror movie archetypes: The Harlot (14 bottles), The Athlete (28 bottles), The Fool (21 bottles), The Scholar (14 bottles), Final Girl (28 bottles), Red Herring (55 bottles) and The Killer (1 bottle).

As you can see I got The Fool which is a metallic purple shimmer with just a hint of flakes throughout.

Girly Bits V.I.Polish

Next up we have Girly Bits V.I.Polish! This is an icy blue with blue and silver flecks and a hint of pink shimmer in the right light! There is also the tiniest bit of holo visible in the right light, too.

Great Lakes Lacquer Love at Hyatt Regency

Love at Hyatt Regency is a bright and bold blue with a flash of lighter blue shimmer. :)

Hit the Bottle On the Loose With Chartreuse

I've never tried products from Hit the Bottle before, but I do love stamping! This lovely is On the Loose With Chartreuse and it was kindly donated to the VIP bags by Beautometry. It's a frosty yellow-green chartreuse stamping polish. Excited to try this one!

Native War Paints Sunbathing on Lake Ontario

Next up is the offering from Native War Paints - this one is Sunbathing on Lake Ontario and it's a teal blue creme with a flash of pink shimmer.

Superficially Colorful Stealing Your Thunder

Next up is another new brand for me - Stealing Your Thunder is the polish from Superficially Colorful and it's a lovely soft grape purple creme with a soft holo!

Tonic Polish Taking on Toronto

And last up we have this gorgeous deep chocolate brown polish with linear holo, holo glitter, and a hint of shimmer! This is Taking on Toronto. :)

In addition to all the polish there were some other amazing goodies included in our bags as well!

So what all did I get in this pile of goodies? Well, let me tell you!

  •  An amazing scented cupcake bathbomb from SoGa Artisan Soaperie
  • A sample slice of natural cold press soap in the scent White Flowers from Superficially Colorful
  • A nail file from Beautomety
  • Moyra Stamping Plate No 108 Sounds of Your World from Beautometry 
  • Fantasy vinyl nail decals from Beyond the Nail
  • A sample of the Skin & Hair Serum from Lovacado 
  • A full sized pan of Cermait eye shadow from Clionadh Cosmetics

MAN! That's a lot of amazing swag! :)

I can tell you right now that the bathbomb did not last long once I got it home, and that is smelled AMAZING.

Here's a closer look at that stamping plate! It's got a nice variety of images, and pairs well with the Hit the Bottle stamping polish that Beautometry also gave us. :)

So that's what I got! Definitely worth it for the price, the makers were all so generous with their contributions and they made some amazing creations.

I think this is my last IEC 2017 post, the rest were all shared closer to the actual event (lol oops). If you haven't already remember to check out my other IEC posts but looking at my Event Recap tag!

Thanks for visiting! xx
