This year, I was invited to a FABULOUS Grammy Glam Party and Pre-Party Primping event thanks to Gillette Venus, COVERGIRL and Olay. And let me tell you, these brands know how to throw an event with class, style and grace – a girl could get spoiled with all VIP style pampering I received around music’s biggest awards show.

The week leading up to this much anticipated event, I was sent this amazing box of beauty goodies from these amazing brands that were all official sponsors of the 54th Grammy Awards

They sent me this box of beauty treats to experiment and play with the newest products from these brands and to get me red carpet ready for the Glam Party. I absolutely fell in love with the genius new Gillette Venus & Olay Razor (available March 2012)

This inspired new razor combines all of the feminine leg and curve lovin’ Venus blade technology with the addition of the emollient and no-shaving-cream-necessary Olay Moisture Bars, which release skin conditioners and lock in moisture. I love that this is an all in one product, it glided effortlessly on my legs and gave me a super close smooth shave, and I felt like I was pampering my legs with a lovely moisturizer at the same time. You will love this razor, it is a MUST try product!

To get my skin Red carpet ready, my delightful box of primping goodies also included Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Wrinkle Revolution Complex

This new Olay product combines moisture with advanced micro-fillers that smooth skin’s surface and instantly relax the appearance of wrinkles. It also contains biopeptide + B3 complex which hydrates your skin and reduces the appearance of deep eye lines in 14 days. I really like the cashmere soft formula which instantly gave my skin a smooth satin finish and because it improves your skin’s texture so quickly, it works fabulously as a primer too. Very impressive!

CoverGirl BlastFlipstick Lipstick

CG has done it again with BlastFlipstick, which is destined to be another cult favorite product! This is a brilliantly designed blendable and affordable lip duo that comes in 13 customizable shades with creamy color on one side and a complimentary shimmery color on the flip side. These great color combinations allow you to blend and customize your look and also gives multiple looks from just one product. I am totally enjoying the taupe and sand colors in Snap and love the lightweight moisturizing texture. The other day a pro makeup artist admired what I was wearing on my lips (which she was surprised to learn was CG BlastFlipstick) because she loved the color and texture of product.

So after I had several days of playing with these fun new products, the official Grammy Glam night finally arrived! I was treated to a totally indulgent VIP evening, which began with car service (such a treat to not have to deal with LA traffic!) to the Grammy Glam Primping Pre-Party at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. We were invited up to the Penthouse Suite for a few hours of sipping bubbly, enjoying gourmet eats (LOVED the truffle mac n’ cheese), massages, mani’s, skin freshening with Olay products, a complete COVERGIRL professional makeup application and professional hair styling. What a treat! I just adore being pampered, don’t you?

As an added bonus, I had the pleasure of meeting celebrity makeup artist Bruce Grayson (totally DTE & a sweetheart) who is also an Olay Brand Ambassador. He gave me an Olay skincare consult, recommended some products for my skin, and because we hit it off so well, he decided to give me a FAB Red Carpet makeup application. He’s all about not overdoing it with products and makeup and letting natural beauty shine through. I felt so gorgeous and glamorous after Bruce worked his magic on me. I loved his work and it photographed beautifully, which is a sign of talented artist BTW, what do you think?

After all the relaxing and primping, we headed around the corner to the official Grammy Glam Party at MyHouse Nightclub, where I was treated like a VIP, got to walk the Red Carpet and engage in on camera interview just like a real celeb, so fun! Here I am looking Red Carpet Gorgeous & Glam thanks to fab my makeup by Bruce Grayson and my amazing new hair color thanks to Marco Pelusi and my Steamy Porcini Aloxxi Hair Color

And after all the lavish primping I had, I was certainly ready for my magazine cover shoot, don’t ya think?

Thank you Gillette Venus, Olay and COVERGIRL for inviting me to such a fun and fabulous night to remember!
