Bare Escentuals Friendship Bracelet Winners…

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 17 - 2011

Well, I didn’t expect to spend the best part of Monday/Tuesday welling up at your stories of the inspirational women in your lives.  And I know it’s a cliche to say that I wish I could send you ALL a friendship bracelet… but, boy do I really wish I could send you all a friendship bracelet.

What I will say though is that as inspirational as those women may be to you, you honouring them like that totally inspired me too.  Thank you.

I had to pick your names out of a virtual hat, your stories were too personal and beautiful for me to feel entitled to personally ‘pick’, I hope you don’t mind:

Winners are:

Eliz C

Ladies, please email me your postal details and I’ll get your lovely bracelets (and makeover tags!) off to you early next week!

a big RAWR to the BarryM Instant Nail Effects giveaway winners!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 11 - 2010

Completely inspired by Kellie at BigFashionista, I had a go at applying the BarryM Instant Nail Effects over Models Own 25 Carat Gold to get a more feline interpretation!

Close up… it’s not that leopard print-y, but from 3 feet or further, it works REALLY well!

This stuff really is nail art for the completely unartistic (i.e. me!)

But enough of all this!

Who are my two lucky winners from this weekend’s giveaway?

The gods over at have spoken… and I’m pleased to announce that…



… are the lucky winners, I shall email you this evening for your addresses ladies!

Thanks for entering everyone, with over 180 entries in 48hrs, I can’t tell you how much I wish I could afford to give away more bottles.  Instead, I shall wish you all the bestest week ever xx

Giveaway – BarryM Instant Nail Effects x 2

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 9 - 2010

Like a moth to the proverbial flame, I found myself in my local backwater Boots yesterday afternoon and they had just put out their latest delivery of BarryM.

Being the dedicated beauty blogger that I am *cough* and remembering that some of you are struggling to source this for yourselves, I thought I’d pick up two of the new Instant Nail Effects Nail Paints for a quick giveaway!

And when I say quick, I mean QUICK!

Answer this question in the comments below:

Which polish would you choose as a base coat underneath the BarryM Instant Nail Effects?


~ Two winners (winning 1 polish each) will be picked at random early next week
~ Giveaway closes at 11.59pm this Sunday (you have 48hrs – ish)
~ Open worldwide


Good luck!
