My Giveaway Prizes!

Saturday, 21 February 2015

A few weeks ago, whilst having a few drinks with some friends, my rather tipsy self heard my phone ping...someone had tweeted me. It was the lovely Beth from bethany-georgia.com to tell me I'd won her giveaway!!! 

I've never won anything before so this was all very exciting!!


I won this Pink Sands Yankee candle and a Mac lipstick of my choice. I'm obsessed with Yankee Candles and this is one I'd never tried before so I was over the moon :) It smells so sweet yet not in an overpowering sickly way..it's very fresh! 


I've never tried any of Mac's lipsticks before but I've been told that once you try one, you become hooked. I decided to go for 'Blankety' which I'd seen Beth mention in one of her earlier posts. It's a nude colour with a touch of pink - ideal as a first nude lipstick!! It has a lovely creamy texture and I think it suits my skin tone perfectly. It's great for a natural, understated look!


I had a go at swatching the lipstick for you! It's not the best photo, sorry! I haven't quite mastered taking photos with one hand - they do get rather wobbly...

Have you tried any of Mac's lipsticks before?

  10. So lucky! I really love MAC lipsticks, but unfortunately I only have two. I'm not a big lipstick wearer to be honest. My favourite is the one I've worn on my wedding day, a soft nude pink with a little bit of shimmer.

  11. Congrats! I'm similarly unlucky with competitions. My last win was a Jimmy Neutron computer game when I was in primary school.

    I'm a MAC lipstick fiend! I always have my eye on a few :)
