So technically it was yesterday but really, who has time to blog on their birthday on a Sunday. I had things to do so this just has to be a day late. What a difference a year makes, last year on my birthday I was depressed and angry all day. We were living in my in-laws basement, my husband was unemployed and I turned 30 years old. It made for a crappy day.
This year though I just wanted to be happy and celebrate and enjoy the day, which I did and I thought I'd enjoy the day with you too. I've collected a few of my favourite cosmetic products and I'm going to mail them off to one of you lucky ladies.
Let's start with the eyeshadow. I love these L'Oreal HIP shadows, I own 5 of them but this Wicked duo is my favourite. HIP stands for High Intensity Pigments and they really mean it, the colour payoff is awesome, long lasting and not chalky at all. The bronzy colour goes with just about everything and I hit pan on it far earlier than the purple, despite my equal love for it.
I just discovered this Essence brand of make-up and I'm super impressed. Shoppers Drug Mart just started carrying it here in Canada and I can't believe how cheap it is. I picked up this pot of gel eye liner in Midnight in Paris for $3.00. It goes on nice and dramatic, is almost a whipped consistency and doesn't budge. My friend Michelle just reviewed the same product comparing it to a MAC product so if you're interested check it out here.
Last is the Revlon Colourburst Lipbutter in Peach Parfait. I have three of these lip glosses, they look like a lipstick but feel like a gloss and are pretty long lasting. Peach Parfait is my favourite colour that I own though, it's a colour you wear every day with everything.
Here are my own products in the same colours, opened up so you can see a little better though my eyeliner is a charcoal grey instead of the black pictured above.
And I did a swatch of them for you too.
So, who wants some free make-up?
Let's have a giveaway. If you are interested in these products leave a comment telling me about your favourite birthday gift, or maybe your favourite make-up product or you can just tell me you want the product. Really, any comment will do, just leave a comment.
I'll leave the giveaway open until Friday and then I'll package up the make-up with an edible treat and mail it off.
