Makeup & Muses: Recent Haul & Giveaway Winners!


When buying products for giveaways I always try to buy in bulk or store up on makeup or nail polish sets that I can either use for myself or put toward a future giveaway.

So instead of waking up at 4Am and getting trampled in numerous Black Friday lines, I decided to do my shopping online, which I LOVE.

ELF was having some great deals so I bought 2 100-Eyeshadow palettes for the price of one. Obviously, I don't need two of these things so one will definitely go toward a giveaway in the new year!

But to keep the palette thing going, I also got my hands on this 83-piece palette from Elf that comes in the cutest compact.

Here are photos of the huge palette with and without flash.

The collection comes with 64 eye shadows, 8 lip gloss colors and many more great cosmetics.

I will probably put this up for grabs in a new giveaway next year as well.

And I fell in love with those ELF polishes that were a part of my Holiday Giveaway.

They came in two different sets so I picked one for the giveaway and another for myself. I also ended up getting a cute french manicure set for free!

Can't wait to do some awesome NOTDs with these new colors.

And I've been using this skin tone evener, but I have not been impressed with it.

I ended up getting this new Aveeno moisturizer instead.

I haven't used it long enough to see any results just yet, but let me know your opinions if you've used it before.

Oh, and with all this talk about giveaways, I might as well announce the 2 winners of my Lanvin, Makeup, Jewelry & Nail Polish Holiday Giveaway!

First, let me say thank you to EVERYONE who participated in my last giveaway of 2010. There were a ton of entries so it took a while to go through each and every one.

I hope that you are following my blog because you really like it and not because you want free (and awesome) stuff.

If there is anything you'd like to see more of on my site then let me know! I love feedback.

2nd place:
