Find out what happened at beautyheaven's 10th birthday party!
If you didn’t know already, this year beautyheaven is turning 10! That’s right, we’ve been around for longer than BB creams and in-shower moisturisers. And we couldn’t have gotten here without our wonderful members, our amazing staff and the incredible brands that support us.
So to celebrate, we decided to throw the party to end all parties for almost 100 of our most loyal and engaged members. And it wouldn’t be a beautyheaven party if we didn’t invite some of our amazing brands to take part in such a special day.
But if you weren’t able to be there, don’t worry – we’re here to give you a full run down of the day.
What: beautyheaven’s 10th birthday celebration
Where: The Ivy Sunroom, Sydney
The day began with almost 100 beautyheaven members arriving at the Ivy Sunroom. They were welcomed at the door, given name tags and wristbands and invited over to the media wall to get their photo taken. Here the members got to have a drink and catch up with all of their fellow beautyheaven members, some of whom had travelled interstate to attend.
Once all our members arrived, they were escorted to their seats in front of a stage. There they were officially welcomed by beautyheaven’s General Manager Michelle Blancato and Editor Rosie. After watching a video that chronicled beautyheaven’s origins and incredible journey over the last 10 years, it was time to split into groups and get down to the good stuff – the brands and their amazing products!
Each group of members had a beautyheaven staff member as their group leader, who helped to show the group around the event and make the day fun for everyone. The groups were then taken around to hear from the many amazing brands that took part in the day and try out some incredible products (which they got to take home!).
Members were invited to learn about the benefits of the much-loved Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II before being colour-matched with a special shade-detecting device for the brand’s legendary foundation, Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup SPF 10.
M.A.C treated the members to a product demonstration of their classic Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Each member was able to choose their favourite shade with the help of the wonderful M.A.C makeup artists who were on hand to assist.
Friendly staff from JUSTICE Professional talked through the exciting launch of the brand and the range of products currently on offer. The Smooth & Groom conditioning cream was then demonstrated on one lucky beautyheaven member’s hair.
John Plunkett Skincare and Nutri-Synergy
The John Plunkett Skincare representatives shared the brand’s long heritage with the members, who were then able to try the products on their skin. The members also got several full-sized products for them to try at home, including the Nutri-Synergy NS Working Hands.
Fun Factory, We-Vibe and Svakom
The members were taken through an extensive range of Fun Factory, We-Vibe and Svakom sex toys by the informative brand representatives. The lucky members were also treated to a gift bag filled with some of the goodies, including the Svakom Echo.
Beauty by Nicholas
After hearing about the brand’s recent launch, the members were shown the key products from the Beauty by Nicholas range. The members were also able to select their shade to try the Foundation No More at home.
Nutrimetics gave members the opportunity to try their new Ultra-Care+ Platinum Youthful Beauty Supplement and hear all about the Ultra-Care+ Platinum range. They also got to preview the new Christmas range and left with sample bags worth more than $200!
Throughout the day, bh’s Kristy and bh’s Vanessa were live on beautyheaven’s Facebook page, streaming all the action and giving away 10 amazing prize packs filled with amazing products for those who weren’t able to be there on the day. You can watch the live stream videos here.
We also crowned some of our most engaged members with our member awards! From the biggest points spender in beautorium to the member who has reviewed the most products, find out the winners here. Those special members received an extra special prize pack to take home.
The goodie bags
Once our lucky members had seen all the amazing brand stalls and received some amazing products, we gave them another giant goodie bag filled with even more products to take home!

“A million thank yous to the bh team for a such a brilliant day - fun, friendly, informative, so well organised, delish catering, and of course, the legendary beautyheaven event goodie bags. You guys sure know how to do WELCOME! Special thanks to Bree for being the best group leader - what a sweetheart ♥” – bh member katshepsutt
“Thank you bh – it was an amazing half day away from my bub, and I feel spoiled rotten. It was nice to catch up with old friends and I also met some new ones. Hope to see you all again in the next event!” – bh member skincarejunkie
“It was a total surprise! I knew bh knew how to threw a party, but it still blew my sis and I away! It was a great day – thanks so much for organising and allowing the +1. I haven't had such a day out with my sister since she became a mum. It was so very lovely with everyone as well. Expected nothing less from the amazing women on BH (and I don't just mean the staff).” – bh member Eidolon
“OMG, I had THE best day of my life today at the #beautyheaventurns10 event today in Sydney. I just want to say a massive thank you to all of the ladies at bh, and to all of the lovely members that I met. It was so much fun and so well put together, and so professional, yet laid back.” – bh member Jenniqua
“It was an absolutely amazing day. Thank you to the bh team for organising such a sensational event and for giving the bh members the opportunity of meeting one another. It was such a fun filled day, so relaxing and friendly, and I'm sure everyone enjoyed getting to know one another. I never imagined in a million years I'd be walking away with so many new products to try. The goodie bags are more like a treasure chest filled with skincare, cosmetics and accessories. I'm just sorry the party had to come to an end.” – bh member onlyoni
