Upcoming Giveaway Items: Part 1

So. I’m going to break this down into at least 2 posts because I have a lot of items and I don’t have pics of all of them yet. Here are some more items I will be including in my upcoming giveaway:
image
This is one of the Profusion Color Canvas palettes that I have posted about before, and swatched in my last post. The colors are very buttery and pigmented with a nice shimmer.

image
This is the e.l.f. Studio Blush in the shade Twinkle Pink, which is, according to many, a great dupe for Nars Orgasm!

image
My favorite eos lip balm in Strawberry Sorbet. I absolutely LOVE the cute packaging and the product inside is amazing. Really.

image
This is a wonderfully scented shimmer lotion from Victoria’s Secret Fantasies: With a Kiss, in Sparkling Berries & Magnolia Flower. This is perfect for special nights out when you are wearing a low-cut dress or top. Or just anytime you wanna sparkle and smell delicious… er… moving on…

image
Here is one of the many nail polishes I will be including in my giveaways. This is Nailtini Nail Lacquer in the shade 108: Bloody Mary.

image
Here are 2 lovely shades of nail polish from e.l.f. The one on the left is Cranberry. The polish on the right is Copper. I like them both a lot.

image
Sticking with another e.l.f. product (can you tell I quite like that brand?) this is the Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in the color Coffee. Next to the eyeliner is a hand sanitizer lol. I know they don’t quite go together, but I had to throw it in as it is SO cute and smells delicious. It is Bath & Body Works PocketBac in Party Animal, which is scented as Confetti Cake and has an adorable puppy on the package!

image

Yep, more e.l.f. These are the Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks. The shades up for grabs are: Summer Nights, Flirty & Girly, Tiki Torches, and Movie Star (not pictured) but looks like a deep burgundy. I love these sticks, they are comparable to all the dupes of the Clinique Chubby Sticks.

image

This pic doesn’t do these polishes justice, but I think they are all so pretty and I am OBSESSED with glitter polishes lately. First is Nicole by OPI in Kendall on the Katwalk. it’s really hard to tell in this pic, but the color is amazing with deep blue, purple and aqua glitter.
The polish in the middle is Pure Ice in the shade Cheatin. Super sparkly and gorgeous. The last one is Revlon’s Ritzy. I am really liking Revlon’s polishes. Black polish with black and silver sequin-glitter type thingies… yeah.

image

Here is another Profusion palette. This one has 36 eyeshadows and a mirror inside the large palette. The shadows are nicely pigmented and shimmery.

image

Lastly (for this post anyway) are 2 smaller profusion shimmer palettes. Each palette has 10 pans of shadows.

Whew, this was a long post and I didn’t even go into a lot of detail like I usually do. This is about half of the items I have for this giveaway. Don’t worry. I am going to split everything up into groups so each winner will get a nice random variety of products 🙂

Hugs, and thank you all for reading, it really does mean a lot to me! Kat


Mini Drugstore Haul-ish Preview

So. I went to the doctor (well, one of my doctors’) today and he gave me a prescription for a different med to try. I stopped by the nearest Walgreens, cuz that’s where I fill my prescriptions. The girl at the pharmacy counter told me it was going to be about an hour before I could pick the prescription up. Ok, I will wait. You know what happens next. Yep… so here they are:

image

On the left- Tweezerman LTD slant tweezers in…. breast cancer pink!!! Even has the little ribbons all over it! I couldn’t resist, especially since I have heard other people’s opinions of the regular Tweezerman tweezers. And… it was on SALE!

Next, I got the Goody Simple Styles spin pin pack in “Dark Hair”. I’ve been curious about these, but not $8 curious. These were 75% off.

Then, the Sally Hansen Vita B Lip Moisturizer in “Clear, Berry”. I got this because it is new, my lips were very chapped, and it was…. on SALE! I have already opened and tried this. It tastes AWFUL. It reminds me of the way chlorine water from a swimming pool tasted when I was a kid and got dunked… blech. It feels ok, kind of waxy. I’m glad I paid around a dollar for this because I don’t care for it.

On to the hand soap. This is Studio 35’s Limited Edition Butter Shortbread Liquid Hand Soap. I got this because it smells sooooo good. And it was a dollar.

On the bottom… from Studio 35, again, 50 clasp-free ponytail holders. I am constantly losing these things, and for $2.49 for 50 of them… no brainer. The colors, if you can’t see them well in the pic above, are white, pink, red, orange, turquoise, purple, navy, ad black. They are quite stretchy and seem strong enough.

image

Ok, here is what you have been waiting for. At the top- a palate of eyeshadows!!! This is “Sultry & Neutrals” by Profusion. I bought this for $4.99. I have had VERY good luck with Profusion lately. This palette looks like it might be trying to dupe the “Naked” palettes. I did buy a similar one, in “Midnight Fever” a few weeks ago and LOVE it. I will do reiews on both once I have tried the new one out.

Anyway, there are 10 eyeshadows in this nice quality case… it is cardboard (what do you expect for this price), but it is very smooth on the outside. And it has magnetic closure!!! There is also a mirror on the lid when you open the flap up. It comes with a generic applicator, but also a black eyeliner.  I will post a pic at the bottom of the two palettes together.

On the left is another Profusion gem. These are the “Color Canvas” collection. I have found them in 3 different shades. I grabbed this one because it was the only one left. If you ever see these anywhere,  BUY THEM. They are $1.99 and are soooo very pigmented. They have 3 large eyeshadow pans and 7 smaller ones, but you are getting a LOT of product in there. Super amazing quality. This palette has different shimmery colors, but the other two I have are completely different. They are all great. I will review them soon also.

And last… I saw this EOS “Alice in Wonderland” lip balm gift pack. There is “Watermelon Wonderland”, “Sweet Vanilla Nonsense”, and “Blueberry Potion”. Who can resist that? Especially…. ON SALE!!!

Let me know if you have tried any of these! If so, what did you think? Have you ever heard of or seen the Profusion palettes before?
