Contest Winner Prize

I have had a long day at work today so it was lovely to arrive home to a package from the postman. Inside was the goodies i won in a contest from http://nicolafab.blogspot.com/. It was a complete surprise to win the contest – ive never won anything before! I would just like to thank Nicola. i love all of the products ive won and i would never of thought of buying them for myself so it was a nice gift to receive!

So heres what i got sent:
2 packs of REVLON Runway collection false stick on nails in ‘Sequins’ and ‘Starlet’. Im a fan of stick of nails, i think they are fabulous - these are really pretty nail art designs on them, I can’t wait to try them out :)

The Body Shop Eye Trio in sundown glow- I believe this is from the new collection? I had a play of this trio set and i’m impressed - the eye shadow is highly pigmented and of a high quality. I like the packaging and the colours are gorgeous shades of warm golden dark brown, a copper and light shimmer. It reminds me very much of some of the Mac’s MSF. You could use them separately or mixed together. I think this would look great as a highlight on the cheeks as well as using on the eyes. I used to be a huge fan of the body shop makeup a few years ago when the makeup range was first launched and loved there eye shadows, makeup brushes in particular. I used them religiously but i have to say i haven’t touched them for the past 3 years as i moved on to products such as MAC and NARS.
A quick look on my eyes......
Swatches.....








A litte look at what it looks blended on the skin....

Next is a The Body Shop eye khol in vibrant emerald. I have already got 2 of these body shop liners in black and blue. These eyeliners are nice and creamy and blend in well. I blended a little of this emerald in the bottom lash line when I was playing around with the eye trio shadows.

Swatch.....

Next is the Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll On – treatment for dark circles. Im excited to try this as I have always suffered with dark circles...and I have tired allsorts of products but never found anything that has actually worked! I have seen this garnier product advertised a lot on TV and in magazines but never thought to buy it. I find the only way to deal with dark circles is to try and disguise them as best i can with a good concealer and light reflecting particles makeup. I shall keep you updated on how i get on with this product and whether it makes a real difference as it promises. If it does work i predict its to do with massaging action around the eyes with the metal roller ball.


I am so grateful to receive NAILS INC nail polish in the shade hans road. I have seen this shade online before and been tempted to purchase it – and i always thought it was a bright red from the pictures ive seen. However this colour is more of a pinky red shimmer. The consistency reminds me alot of Nails Inc Brighton. I absolutely adore this colour – it looks fab with my tan (fake of course!). Definitely more of a colour for summer months. This month i have pushed the pinks to the side and I have been loving dark and dirty shades of browns, purples and greys - perfect for this autumn and winter. This polish is a nice addition to my ever growing nail varnish collection :P

Thanks again Nicola!
