Day 11: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 10 prize selected by Random.org is Christy DuBois. Please send me an eMail to mary@body-soulbeauty.com with your name/address. Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to all for entering.


The prize for day 11 is one of the Proenza Schouler for Lancome Matte Shaker Liquid Lipstick in the shade Round Purple. This is a Limited Edition shade, one of three shades from the Fall 2018 collection. Do not think this shade is too bold, or a color you would never wear! I have quite a few of the Matte Shakers, and when I saw this one, I totally dismissed it because I don't wear purple lip shades. It's just not something I think looks good on me, although I've seen others pull it off beautifully. This looks straight up grape purple, right? I ordered one of the other shades from this collection, Minimal Ocre, and didn't give Round Purple another thought. That is, until I asked a friend of mine what lip color she was wearing, and was I ever surprised when she told me it was Round Purple! Of course I had to have it then. 

It really looks like a vivid purple in the tube and on the applicator, but oddly, it doesn't transfer that look to the lip. It's more of a sheer berry tone that looks surprisingly natural. I love the Matte Shakers because of how nice they feel on my lips, and the fact that as they wear off, they still leave a nice stain of color. They're like a lightweight pigmented lip stain. They aren't what I would call true matte, they have a bit of gloss or a sheen to them upon application, but after several hours of wear, they are more of a stain or tint with no gloss, so at that point I would consider them matte. I simply apply one layer and then let it wear down throughout the day for a stained berry look. You can certainly build it up for a bolder look and a deeper stain if you prefer.

Day 10: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 10 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 9 prize selected by Random.org is Jennifer. NOTE: There were 2 "Jennifer's" entered, the winner is the one who posted December 10 at 10:26 p.m., so please read through the comments to verify that the correct "Jennifer" responds. Please send an eMail to mary@body-soulbeauty.com with your name/address. Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to all for entering.

The prize for Day 10 is 1-Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip & Cheek Tint. This gel formula comes in an adorable little bottle that would look lovely displayed on a vanity tray with some of your other artistically appealing products and perfumes. It's a universal pink shade that adjusts to your skin's pH and adapts to your skin tone. I prefer to use this as a blush, but I've used it as a lip shade when I'm looking for a more natural lip look. You can build up the color, as it's sheer, so just apply more for a more intense look. I use mine for more of a natural rosy flush look, so I'll admit I've never tried to build it up too much.

Day 9: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 8 prize selected by Random.org is nightowl. Please send me an eMail to mary@body-soulbeauty.com with your name/address. Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to all for entering.

Day 9 offers 1-Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush in the shade I Will Always Love You. These are some of my favorite blushes because they're very pigmented, yet natural looking. I love the cute little heart-shaped compact they come in, and of course the embossed graphic is almost too pretty to disfigure by using it! This particular shade is a medium peachy-coral tone with shimmer, and I would describe the shimmer as more of a sheen once applied. Peach and gold, lovely! In other words, it's not really particles of shimmer. Does that make sense?!! They're firm enough in the pan so that they don't apply too powdery, and the intensity can be easily built up.

Day 8: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! Today's prize is Tom Ford's Ruby Rush Matte Lip Color Lipstick in the shade Ruby Rush. Forever on the hunt for the perfect red shade, Ruby Rush is definitely in my top 3 favorites, along with NARS Dragon Girl and MAC's Ruby Woo. This cool toned red has a semi-matte finish, and it's very comfortable to wear. Lipsticks that are matte in description, often equate to dryness when it comes not only to the application, but also in the comfort level on the lips. Tom Ford's matte lipsticks are anything but dry in all aspects. If you're searching for a statement red, this could be the one for you.

Day 7: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 6 prize selected by Random.org is Deborah G. Please send an eMail to mary@body-soulbeauty.com with your name/address. Congratulations to the winner, and thanks to all for entering.

The prize offering for Day 7 is the oh-so-lovely Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Limited Edition Highlighting Palette. This has become one of my favorite highlighters because it applies beautifully--wet or dry, depending on the look you're going for. It almost melts into your skin, and the lack or glitter is much appreciated! It is smooth, blendable, and easy to work with. If you just want a subtle glow, this is your product. If you want a seriously powerful and bright highlighter, this is your product. It's extremely versatile and in my opinion, a universal shade.
