CLOSED – Win it! The Body Shop Expert Brush Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 20 - 2014

I don’t know about you, but I woke up this morning with a distinct “Hello Monday morning, I’ve been expecting you…” kinda feeling.  Maybe it’s because today is officially the “bluest day of the year”… maybe it’s because I’m dragging my heels over doing the last bit of my tax return and you know… tick-tock.  Or maybe it’s just because I looked out of the window and saw a sheet of ice about an inch-thick covering the car just before the realisation that I forgot to buy de-icer this weekend.

Whatever the reason, I feel that it’s my mission in life (today, at least) to spread a little joy.

And what could be more joyful than the opportunity to win a brilliant brush set from The Body Shop?  Nothing!  You see, these brushes are a makeup bag staple for any ladies getting serious about makeup.  I cut my teeth on The Body Shop brushes… their softy-synthetic loveliness is gentle on the face and kind to the bunnies.  They’re well-cut, solidly constructed, hard-wearing, and give a beautifully-polished finish day after day.

To make buying a little easier, the UK brand has recently released a trio of Brush Collections (Essential, Expert, and Ultimate) which take the effort out of trying to decide which brushes to add to your arsenal and today, I’m giving away one set of The Expert Brush Collection.

The set includes:

Eyeshadow Brush
Lipstick & Concealer Brush
Blusher Brush
Foundation Brush
Face & Body Brush

Basically everything you’d need to create a full face of beautifully-applied makeup!  The set retails at £30 online, but is worth a staggering £58 were you to buy each brush individually!

To enter the competition and stand a chance at getting your hands on the brush set, simply leave a comment below, telling me a silly joke.  Go on, let’s have a bit of cheer among the misery of Blue Monday!

Perfect Hair and Make Up for a Job Interview!

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 18 - 2013

This post constitutes my entry in response to this competition hosted by cosmetic-candy.com in association with Total Jobs JobAcademy

I remember my first job interview clearly.  I was 17 and looking for something to earn some extra pennies whilst I was at sixth form college.  I applied to be an “activities organiser” at a local care home for the elderly.  I got the job but only lasted a week once I realised that they didn’t actually want someone to organise days out and activities for the residents but required an underpaid carer with a false job description that meant they could get away without providing any health and safety training.

I haven’t had a job interview since, one of the many benefits of being self-employed… though I do wish I had a Christmas party to go to for once (someone invite me to theirs please)!

Anyway, Rowena from Cosmetic Candy has challenged her readers to document their “interview look”, which includes makeup, hair, scent, and nails.  The complete package.  Thankfully not clothes though… I’m rubbish at putting together outfits, truly awful…

Here’s my “interview appropriate” ideas for ensuring you look your best under pressure!

interview-look-1

01: Benefit They’re Real Mascara (£19.50, boots.com) – I’d leave the eyeliner at home, knowing that one slip could turn my look from kitten-eyed into crazy-eyed… not to mention the lunchtime eye-bogies that can often accompany a slick of kohl.  Instead, I’d reach for one of the most va-va-voom mascaras in my arsenal.  Benefit’s They’re Real delivers the longest of lashes with the least amount of clumping for me.

02: Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (£20.00, debenhams.com) – While its name may not be interview appropriate, the hues housed within this handy little eyeshadow companion are all about making the best of your features with the minimum of fuss.  Perfect for shading and contouring the eye area to bring forth your natural beauty in a sophisticated and most importantly, understated way.

03: Illamasqua Gaze Eyebrow Cake (£15.50, debenhams.com) – Illamasqua’s answer to perfect brows has long-been on my holy grail list.  Gaze is the perfect brow powder for dark brunettes looking for an ashy tone that won’t turn red as the colour fades.

04: MAC Pink Cult Blush (£??, discontinued) – Sadly, this perfect “pop of pink” blush was part of a limited edition collection a couple of years back, however I picked it up a couple of weeks ago at my local CCO for just over a tenner and I’m glad I did!  The neutral flush gives a lift to my naturally ruddy cheeks without overpowering them with colour.  Do keep an eye out for a re-issue from MAC or as an alternative, Illamasqua Naked Rose would work well.

05: Lipstick Queen Chinatown Glossy Pencil Lipstick in Thriller (£22.00, SpaceNK.com) – I umm’ed and ahh’ed over whether to include an easy-to-wear lipgloss, or stay true to my roots and go for a lipstick.  In the end, I decided why choose when you can compromise?  Lipstick Queen’s glossy lip pencils deliver a slightly-sheerer-than-lipstick punch of colour with the shine (but none of the stickiness) that comes with a lipgloss.  Thriller is my chosen colour, the safest of reds that won’t leave you with colour on your teeth or a ring of doom on your lips!

06: No7 Stay Perfect Liquid Foundation (£14.00, boots.com) – It’s been a while but I’m still pretty much fully in love with this high-street foundation from the Boots’ brand.  It provides long-lasting coverage with a natural finish that doesn’t sit too heavily on a (gently!) maturing face.  The bottle dispenses the perfect amount of product in a single pump, ensuring that I never get too heavy-handed with my application, there’s nothing like finding a foolproof foundation and this is one of the closest I’ve discovered.

07: Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19, boots.com) – I remember the first time I discovered this little beauty that highlights and conceals in one.  Who knew that you could get such quality from such an inexpensive brand?  I don’t go in for heavy-duty concealers and this one is perfect for a little bit of light cover-up and an undereye highlight.

interview-look-2

01: Mum Cool Blue Extra Dry Deodorant (£1.05, chemistdirect.co.uk) – I can’t do aerosol deodorants… that blast of icy mist first thing in the morning does nothing to improve my just-got-out-of-bed mood.  I’m a roll-on girl and Mum has been my brand of choice for years!  I went through a Mitchum phase but for the extra pennies, I just don’t think it works that much harder than the Extra Dry variety I usually pick up which always keeps me cool under pressure!

02: Prada Infusion D’Iris EdP (from £41.50, theperfumeshop.com) – If you’re looking for a sophisticated scent that never cloys or irritates the nose of others around you, Prada’s Infusion d’Iris delivers a timeless and fresh perfume that lingers long into the day without need for reapplication.  Perfectly interview-appropriate without causing a stink!

03: Mavala Liberty Mini Nail Polish (£4.10, supplymebeauty.com) – If you want your nails to look polished without causing a scene-stealing furore, your safest bet is to stick with a skin-flattering nude.  Choose the perfect shade that will compliment your skin tone to elongate your fingers and show that you know how to take care of yourself!

04: Octopus Hair Claw (£17.00, stone-bridge.co.uk– Hair is not my forte and for that reason, I recommend investing in only one product: a great quality hair claw.  You’re looking for something that will keep your locks off your face securely without breaking after five-minutes.  The Octopus hair claw is top of my list because of its tentacled hair-gripping combs and lightweight design that won’t pull fine hair down to the nape of the neck as the day progresses.

05: Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File (£15.50, boots.com) – Want to know what doesn’t look good in an interview room?  A pair of tights that look as though you’ve been playing hide-the-sausage with the postman in the stationery cupboard (already).  Catch any tears and snags that develop on your nails quickly before they rip your tights (and any chance of getting that job with it) to shreds.

06: Trebor Extra Strong Mints (£0.46, asda.com) – Because you just never know when last night’s cheeky takeaway is gonna put in a reappearance.  You want to impress with your mind-meltingly good charm and knowledge, not your face-meltingly bad breath.

What’s the one beauty item you couldn’t survive a job interview without?

* Don’t forget to check out the competition at Cosmetic Candy for your chance to enter to win £150 in Selfridges vouchers, I know I should keep it to myself… but I’m just not that mean… mostly.

Yankee Candle celebrates a social media milestone!

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 22 - 2013

A ride on the bullet train, a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, and a tour of the ancient city of Petra (whilst whistling the Indiana Jones theme in my head) are all up there at the top of my bucket list.

Want to know what else would make the grade? A browse around the Yankee Candle factory in Massachusetts. Can you imagine? It would be like the best. school. trip. ever.

The Yankee Candle Village is a veritable mecca for candle fans across the world, housing every scent your nose could desire and a huge range of accessories and decorations to go with them. Well, one very lucky US-residing Yankee Candle Facebook fan is going to win a trip to the home of the company in New England for some extra-special VIP treatment!

If you’re eligible, do hop on over to the brand’s Facebook page before the competition closes this Friday and hit the Like button for your chance to scoop the prize!

Yankee Candle celebrates a social media milestone!

In addition to this, the brand are also celebrating this impressive social media milestone with the launch of a limited edition candle.

The much-loved Vanilla Cupcake has had a bit of a makeover to proudly announce “1 Million Fans & Glowing!” and with its rich, buttery scent… everyone but the most hardened of gourmand-haters will salivate at the creamy aroma it emits.

Yankee Candle celebrates a social media milestone!

The limited-edition commemorative candle is priced at £19.99/$27.99 and is available to buy via the brand’s facebook page or online at yankeecandle.com

UK readers can also enter to win a similar prize by entering via the web form online at yankeecandle.co.uk

The St. Ives Natural Beauty Challenge #StIvesNaturalBeauty

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 21 - 2013

So, what does natural beauty mean to you?

Is it poreless skin without the help of foundation?  Laughter lines that show a life well-lived?  Perhaps it’s simply the beauty of an unspoilt vista lifting your soul in a way that city-life never could?

St. Ives – creators of iconic skin-scrubbiness – recently approached a selection of bloggers with a creative challenge which celebrates the company ethos of imparting confidence and exploring the radiance of natural beauty.

The brand, who have been around for over 25 years now, are dedicated to harnessing the power of nature within their skincare range.  To this end, their formulas do not contain parabens or phthalates, the brand use sustainably-sourced ingredients wherever possible, cut waste, and employ eco-friendly packaging for all their products.

The brief itself was simple: “capture and share an image of natural beauty”.  So simple in fact that it left a lot of room for interpretation, perhaps too much for a procrastinator like me!

I’m incredibly fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world with the New Forest on my doorstep, beaches a few miles down the road and the rolling hills of the South Downs only a stone’s throw away.  But the problem was, that despite a wealth of inspiration surrounding me… beauty that I was itching to go and photograph.  I couldn’t get over one small detail…

The greatest source of natural beauty was sitting right next to me.

IMG_8887revisedweb

A brush through the tangles, a crown of flowers, and a couple of “knock knock” jokes later and I had all the inspiration I could have ever needed.

Despite the rather obvious fact that she’s not pumping half a gallon of Double Wear onto her face every morning, Leila’s natural beauty lies in the fact that she is so wonderfully oblivious.  Every inner thought and feeling, like most children, is reflected upon her face: from the doughnut she can’t get enough of to the wonderment of seeing Sleeping Beauty’s castle.  From the pride that correctly identifying her ABCs brings her to the chutzpah that follows when she utters the words “I am rather marvellous, aren’t I?”

Her eyes are not only a window into her soul but a porthole, skylight, dormer, and sunroof… all untainted by the self-consciousness that adulthood brings with it.  She feels no need to mask her feelings or to “tone-down” her excitement, fearful of looking too eager or heaven-forbid, uncool.  If only we could all recapture some of that day-to-day, unbridled honesty in our faces.

And that is why she, and other children of a similar age, are such a joy to be around (in moderation, of course!) and for me, an unparalleled definition of natural beauty.

Do you allow your natural beauty to shine through in certain company or are you focused on maintaining a facade? 

If you fancy talking about what “natural beauty” means to you, feel free to use the dedicated #StIvesNaturalBeauty hashtag on Twitter.

* In the interests of full-disclosure, all photographic entries will be judged by beauty photographer Claire Harrison on behalf of St. Ives and displayed at a gallery-style event in London next month.  The eventual winner will receive a fabulous prize (and one to give away to a reader!) 

** On a plate beside Leila, sat a sausage roll… looking particularly beautiful.  To be honest, it was a close-run thing.

WIN IT! So… You wanna go to Paris?

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 24 - 2012

Well, this has taken me a little longer to post than I anticipated.  I mean, it’s not everyday that you get to give away a 5* break to Paris for two with £500 spending money now is it? (thank you Vaseline!)

It quickly became apparent from an impromptu straw poll on Twitter that you guys wanted a competition that required a little more effort than a couple of clicks with your mouse and I agree.  So, without further ado… read on to find out what you have to do for a chance at winning this fantastic prize!

Right then my lovelies…

I want you to create an artistic representation of Paris.

The catch?  You have to use the medium of BEAUTY to create your masterpiece.

Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to do a makeup look or paint your face (although you absolutely can).  You could draw on paper with cosmetics, make a collage from beauty adverts/product packaging, sculpt a statue out of false eyelashes – the choice is yours BUT there must be a clear link between three things: BEAUTY, PARIS and ART.

Clear as mud?

Once you have created your BEAUTIFUL PARIS – I want to see it!

You can upload a photograph to Flickr, email it to me, post it on your blog (if you have one) and link me to it in the comments, or shout at me on twitter – I don’t mind how you show me, but I need to be able to SEE IT!  I will create a gallery of all the entries that will be viewable by everyone at the close of the competition (you must be OK with this).  I will update this post with the names (twitter/facebook handles) of everyone whose entries I have received, this way – you can be sure that I have seen your entry.

As for choosing a winner?  Well, that comes down to me.  I will simply choose my favourite.  I’m not gonna cop out with a public vote/popularity contest and I’m hoping that there will be one STANDOUT entry so I don’t lose sleep over it.

Does this sound good?  Any concerns or questions?

The competition will go live tonight from midnight and is only open to UK participants.

WIN a GHD Gloss IV Styler

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 9 - 2012

Happy Monday morning to you!

Well, when I say “happy”… I’ve actually got my sympathetic face on.  You see, when I wake up in the morning, I’m blessed with more time to get ready than most – thems the benefits of working from home.  It’s not as luxurious as it sounds, half the time it just means that I end the day looking the same as I did when I rolled out of bed that morning.

None of you glamourous lot would ever dream of being so slattern would you?

Oh, you would?

Well in that case, keep reading because I have an early-morning hair saviour up for grabs that might just encourage you to change your ways.

The ghd Gloss IV Styler not only promises your hair the glossy finish it’s been craving but creates its own style tribe with a high-shine, patent finish in addition to all the usual features you’d expect from the best-selling brand.

When you’re as bleary-eyed as a panda, you’ll be grateful for the long, swivel cord that won’t leave you contorting your upper torso into impossible angles and the safety-conscious sleep mode will ensure that the only burnt aromas you’ll return home to are from the remains of your morning toast.

Wanna win a pair?
