How About a Contest?

I am starting to feel very generous and want to run a contest. A "test" contest of sorts.

Now, this will be a real contest with a real prize, in preparation for our major Twelve Days of Christmas contest, which will be starting very soon. (You must keep your eye out for that... you never know when it can start!). I need to test out the application and make sure that I get all of the proper information. 

What will you have to do? Well, all you will need is to be a feed subscriber via e-mail. I use a very reliable service that will send you a daily e-mail with the latest posts from Beautiful Makeup Search. It is easy to sign up via the subscriber form box in the left side bar, which will also follow below in this post. Once you sign up, for e-mail safety reasons, you will need to verify your e-mail address. (And of course, we will never share any of your information with anyone. Ever.) If you are a rss subscriber and read this via a feed reader (such as google feed reader, My Yahoo!, etc.) you will still need to subscribe to the e-mail subscription feed to be entered into the contest.

Understand?

Ok - so here is today's contest. And remember, all you have to do is subscribe with your e-mail address (and verify it) to be entered to win.  The Prize? The prize for entering today's contest will be: With a value of $578! Tarte's We Wish You Wealth Palette

This contest is open to residents of the United States Only. One winner will be randomly selected from the list of e-mail feed subscribers. Only one entry per e-mail address. This contest ends at 11:59 P.M. today, November 15, 2007. I will get in touch with the winner via e-mail, in which the winner will have just 48 hours to respond, or the prize will be forfeited. I will announce the name of the winner as soon as I have it.

Good Luck!

Prescriptives The Illuminator All Over Face Color.

The Illuminator All Over Face Color Powder from Prescriptives saved me this weekend. With so much, really too much going on, I barely had time for makeup, and using The Illuminator made my makeup a cinch.

I used the powder not only on my cheeks as a bronzer with the two darkest colors and then topping that with the pink and gold color, I highlighted them also with the two shades in the middle, a real light shimmery gold mix.  Then I used the darker bronzed colors on my eyelid, and the golds on my brow bone. I even dabbed a bit of the gold color on the bottom of my lower lip after applying some gloss.

The colors blended so easily and felt like satin on my skin.

Here is what Prescriptives says what The Illuminator is:
"This ultra-luxurious all over face color is like candlelight in a compact. Bask in the glow as you sweep The Illuminator All Over Face Color over face and cheeks to highlight, contour, illuminate and customize any look with golden warmth. Three complementary shades impart a luminous 3-D effect that is strikingly beautiful and flattering to all skin tones. Perfect for touch-ups throughout the day, it can be worn as a sheer wash of color, layered for depth and dimension or swirled together to create a customized shade. Plus, the sleek gunmetal compact with crystal-studded metal charm has show-off appeal."

I love it, and know you will too. The Illuminator All Over Face Color is $35 at your Prescriptives counter and on their website, of course.

The Sephora Supermodel Kit.

Has Sephora gone and lost their mind? When I saw this beauty I thought wait. I see Smashbox. I see Stila. Why does the page say Sephora? Could it be a misprint?

Then I understood. Sephora put together the ultimate Supermodel Kit with some of the products needed to help make you look like a Supermodel. Well, not quite, but that is what I thought. These products were the actual products that the Sephora makeup artists used for Fashion Week Live. They put them all in a great glittery cosmetic bag too.

Wondering what is inside? Only the best, with a value of $145, for just $79, this Supermodel Kit is a must! The kit includes a Stila Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow in Diamond Black 307, Smashbox Mini Travel Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Original, Smashbox O-GLOW, Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black 090, and a Sephora Blush Me! Mono in Abricot Plaisir 6.

Perfection!
