[CLOSED] Stila Color Me Glossy Lip Glaze Set - A Giveaway!

Stila was pretty much the first brand (that I know of) to come up with a lipgloss click-pen. It’s been over a decade now, and the product is still one of their global best-sellers.

Now they’ve packed it all into a super-cute paper box, grouped into 3 trios:

Reds

Pinks

Neutrals

The idea is that you can either give a loved-one - possibly a makeup fanatic - the whole box, or break it up into separate little stocking stuffers for 3 people. (VERY handy to have a couple sets of these as backup in case you run out of time or forget a few people…)

Shades: cranberry, dazzleberry, passion fruit, persimmon, wildberry, kaleidoscope, melon, strawberry cream, amaretto

What I love is that each shade comes with a unique scent to match its name and color.

I’ve got bad news and good news.

Bad news: I’m sorry there will not be swatches for these 9 oh-so-pretty tubes of glossy lip glazes,

Good news: BECAUSE I’M GIVING THEM AWAY TO 3 READERS*! (Instructions below.)

image

*Contest is open internationally.

To win a set (I will pick the sets randomly, but don’t worry - these are soft, glossy shades and I’m sure they’re all flattering to everyone), simply reply to this post by 8 November 2013. It’s not a quiz; more of a poll, so there’s no right or wrong answer!

  1. hit the Reblog/Answer/Comment button or
  2. use Disqus if you are viewing it in a normal browser or
  3. find the corresponding Stila giveaway image on my Instagram/Facebook and answer there

I will contact 3 winners to request for your shipping details after the 8th.

Question: When was the first time you bought or tried lipgloss and what brand/color was it?

LANEIGE Fall Beauty News & Singapore Snow BB Design Contest: Win SGD300 worth of Laneige products!

This is product update week OMG! All the brands are launching their year-end collections so stay tuned and expect lots more news and features over the next couple of weeks.

Today’s post is on Korean beauty-house Laneige and the goodies in store from this month.

Besides 6 fab new colors in their Silk Intense Lipstick range, I’m more excited about the new Snow BB Soothing Cushion kit. 

If you haven’t tried or seen it yet, Snow BB Soothing Cushion is an award-winning refillable compact that comes with two sponge pads (one in a sealed refill pack) soaked with their signature lightweight, sweatproof BB cream.

This month, Laneige is adding a 5th shade to the range due to popular demand. (Let’s give a nod of appreciation to brands that come up with a wider range of colors; none of that “this BB cream will oxidise and adjust to your skin tone” nonsense here.)

13 True Beige 

21 Natural Beige (I’m NC25 and use this shade; I’d say it’s closer to an NW20, which is slightly more pink than NC25)

23 Sand Beige

31 Brown Beige

33 Coffee - NEW SHADE

33 Coffee will first be available at Sephora stores, so head there if you want to try it now.

ALSO!!!

Purchases this month will entitle you to a free limited edition “Beautify Your BB” DIY kit, containing:

  • 2 wheels of rhinestones, gems, pearls, and metal decals
  • 1 sheet of glitter stickers
  • 1 pair of art tweezers
  • 1 orange stick
  • 1 tube of professional gel adhesive

image

Aside from being able to create your own fantasy compact, every customer in Singapore gets TWO CHANCES to submit their original designs to the Sephora SG Facebook page from 5 Sep - 2 Oct 2013. 

Owners of the 3 winning designs will walk away with SGD300 worth of Laneige products each. Bonus!

400k Contest Runner-ups: andronicco, signcherie, lionessonacheesegrater!

Reblogged from andronicco-deactivated20140325

I couldn’t rank the 2nd to 4th place winners in any specific order; it was too hard because they all stood out for different reasons. This was not a contest of pure skills!

A great makeup look is good (and there were lots of incredible looks), but for this contest the overall effort, humor, and thought behind the submission went a long way, and I felt these 4 winners managed to demonstrate that, even if the looks weren’t always complex.

Congrats guys, and do let me know your full shipping details soon (Extending to 22nd since I took a day to announce the winners) or I’ll have to pick the other shortlisted entries on my list!

If you didn’t win a prize this round, please don’t be too disappointed! There were tons of great posts and I had so much trouble picking out 4 that I actually had to enlist help to think through it. (There’ll be more contests and giveaways coming up!)

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

signcherie:

Excerpt: “… I consider my personal makeup style to be “evil queen.” As in, yes, I actively try to make myself look like a Disney villain. Because, come on! These women are fabulous!”

c: I love how we could get a nice climpse of her personality and humor in her post, and the reasoning behind the themed look she photographed for this contest. She won Item B, Little Humming Book 2!

Excerpt: “… Am I just bad at make up? Do I lack inspiration? Maybe. But at least I can pull off this look, and I think I look good. No Dita, sure, but it’s definitely me.”

C: Last but not least, I liked this post because of the thought and the effort taken to not just pull together images of her makeup journey, but to also detail the story behind it. You won the “Soft Lips” Set, D!

Makeupbox 400k Contest Winning Post: Achjawaaromniet!

achjawaaromniet:

With Shiseido’s accentuating color (for eyes) in Ruby Dazzle, a discontinued green shadow by H&M and MAC lipstick in Russian Red. These are my favorite shadows and this was the perfect opportunity to try and combine them.

I was very impressed by this entry and the whole look. Simple, but dramatic, and very well-done!

You’ve won yourself the Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book 1!
