It’s finally here! My 500 blog post giveaway! A little over a month ago I posted my 500th blog on this little nook on the web. At the time of that post I promised that I would have a giveaway contest to honor this amazing fact as without the people reading my daily musings this would be a whole lot less fun. I promised to see what I could bring back from London. I hoped to find some more special items which would make for a more interesting giveaway. And I believe I have found something worth giving away.
None of these items are available online to my knowledge so you’d really have to fly to England to get your hands on these products. Here’s what you can win:
Prizes are: 1 (one) Accessorize eyeshadow palette in French Vintage, 1 (one) Topshop cream blusher in Neon Rose and 1 (one) Famous by Sue Moxley lipstick in Coral Reef
One person will win this lovely drug store make up set! The colors are very on trend all you’d need is a pop of mascara and you will have a nice looking spring make up. Let’s have a closer look at the products!
Eyeshadow # 1 is a great shimmery dark green. I think this will be perfect for any time and any person. Greens and purples are my favorite colors to use for a pop of color around the eyes so I’m hoping this will please whoever wins as well. Eyeshadow #2 is a dark brown with some shimmer to it. You can never go wrong with brown eyeshadow.
Eyeshadow #3 is a tan/ golden color. Again a color no one could go without. The final eyeshadow, #4, is a gorgeous deep plum color. Can anyone say: crease!
I swatched these colors in store and they all seemed soft and well pigmented. I didn’t buy this palette for myself as I already have a bunch of these colors. However, since this palette constitutes the 4 types of colors I love to wear most I thought it would be perfect for a giveaway.
The Topshop blusher is gorgeous. It’s a bright neon coral cream blush. It feels very creamy when you touch it, but it applies like a super pigmented powder. If you would like to see a picture of the blush in daylight than have a look at last week’s London shoplog, where I featured the one I purchased for myself. The one the winner receives has never been opened, but since I bought one for myself, I decided to add a swatch:
Again, the winner will receive a brand new, untouched blusher which is still sealed. But look at that pigmentation! This is one swipe and the color is just super pretty. Is it pink? Is it orange? No! It’s coral! And since coral is one THE make up colors for spring I decided to also add a coral colored lipstick to the goody bag.
I have no experience with Famous by Sue Moxley lipsticks. I swatched it in the store (the tester of course) and it went on very creamy and again the pigmentation was great. Unfortunately when I opened the lipstick to take these pictures I noticed that the tip is slightly broken, but that’s due to packaging, because this is how I took it out of the wrapper. I took a close up to show you the color a bit better.
This is a more pinky color and it’s super bright, but that’s what so good about it. If you put some on your finger and then dab it on your lips you will get a more subtle, yet fresh color to your lips. Or you could of course go all out and wear it as is. But again, I think this will be suitable for tons of people and I love these bright corals (I bought myself a slightly more orange version from Topshop) so again perfect for the giveaway.
Now how can you win all this goodness? It’s very simple! All you have to do is the following:
