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.

Day 5: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 4 prize selected by Random.org is Gwendolyn Jordan. 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 5's prize may be my favorite offering, loved by me simply for the nostalgic throwback to my childhood, but I'm hoping some of you may also enjoy it. Avon has been around for a very long time, and although they've struggled with marketing and finances, they still remain an iconic brand with a significant history. I tend to forget about them because they're not talked about as much as a lot of brands in the mainstream, but they do offer many quality products. 

When I spotted Avon's Iconic Collection, which offers a number of products to celebrate their heritage--many in retro packaging--they not only caught my eye, but they brought back some wonderful memories. Especially the Mistletoe Kisses Tin. Many decades ago, when I was in late-elementary school, I vividly remember our Avon Lady, Mrs. Lake, coming to our house. She was always dressed up, her lips sporting the latest Avon lipstick shade, and her black tote brimming with the newest campaign catalogs and products. Including these little lipsticks. 

She would sit with my Mom and discuss the latest happenings in the world, while I waited patiently for them to move from the grown-up talk to the important things--makeup and perfume! Even at 10 or 11 years old, I was obsessed with it all! Finally she would get out the samples. A spritz here, a swatch there...I so looked forward to her visits. When she would leave, she would always tuck a couple of these lipstick mini samples into my hand with a wink and a smile. 

Mrs. Lake and my Mom are no longer with me, but seeing this little tin brought back so many happy memories. I had a wonderfully idyllic childhood, so when something like this triggers one of those memories from so long ago, I'm grateful for the joy it brings me. If you read this far, thank you for letting me reminisce about something from so long ago!

Today's prize is for 1-Avon True Color Mistletoe Kisses Tin, which includes 60 mini lipsticks in a variety of Avon's lipstick formulas (Perfectly Matte, Bold, Nourishing, and True Color), all packaged in a little nostalgically designed tin box. This is a great way to try out a huge variety of colors. Without having to spend much money at all, I'm discovering some shades I like that I never purchased previously, thinking they wouldn't look right on me. Ombre lips have also been experimented with! I'm totally enjoying this product, and reliving my childhood at the same time.

Day 4: The 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway



Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway! The winner of the Day 3 prize selected by Random.org is Cynthia Richardson. 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 4 offers a selection of 4 pieces from a collection I spotted a while back at Barneys NY online, and have since seen at Ulta online. The L'Oreal Paris x Isabel Marant collection is made up of 11 pieces, 7 of which are lipsticks, a brow & lash mascara, an eye shadow duo, a lip & cheek gloss, and a highlighter. This collaboration between two iconic French brands is called The Most Wanted Collection.

Today's prize will include the eye shadow duo, one of the lipsticks in the shade Belleville Rodeo, the lip & cheek gloss, and the highlighter. I need to do a review of the products I have for myself one of these days, so I apologize for not being able to tell you much about them at this point. They sit amidst a gigantic pile of untried's, but I promise to start doing reviews again very soon as I settle into a regular posting routine.
