I was ecstatic when I saw my name announced on Ipsy’s facebook fan page as one of their glam bag challenge winners, in January. Amazed, I kept referring back to the post to see if I had really seen it or not, as it felt surreal to me. Quite a few friends and followers have asked me to share what I had received; I will be relaying it all in this blog post, as well as in my reveal video (follow the link to that video here: http://youtu.be/7vYDlK6nPNQ ).
My entry for the challenge look I created showcased a glitzy cat eye with a fun pink pout. I think it has to be the one of my favorite tutorials I have created to date. I truly had a blast putting it all together.
What I won…
Every thing arrived in three huge boxes! It was like Christmas in January!!
I have been using this Coastal Scents primer in some of my recent tutorials. It seems to work well.
This 252 Coastal Scents Eye Shadow Palette is the biggest one I own now. It is going to be so much fun playing with all this color!
The brushes in this Coastal Scents Elite Brush set are super soft!!
I thought two of these blushes would be really dark on my pale skin, but when I swatched them they looked like they were buildable.
I received the Coastal Scents Reveal palette; so many pretty neutral shades! (Note: I was also sent from Coastal Scents a small four shadow samples/refills) packet.
Also from Coastal Scents I was sent a package of brush guards and a brush cleanser.
From Elizabeth Mott I was sent the It’s So Big mascara. I tried a smaller size from one of my ipsy bags one month, and loved it.
From Elizabeth Mott I also recieved three smooth shadow pencils.
From Yaby, I received this pretty blush and bronzing palette.
