January 2014 Ipsy Glambag Challenge Winnings Reveal

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 thought two of these blushes would be really dark on my pale skin, but when I swatched them they looked like they were buildable.
