What I won: Blog giveaway!

A few weeks ago Kat from Kitch Snitch had her 100 follower giveaway! I was lucky enough to be the winner of the first prize pack which included Escada Moon Sparkle Shower Gel and Body Lotion, Laura Mercier Illuminating stick in Golden Honey Glow, Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter, Bourjous 10 day no chip nail polish in shade 13 and 19, and my favourite part of the prize, MUA Undressed palette.


Lip butter (l), heavily swatched illuminator, and blended (r)

Unfortunately I haven't had a chance to test out most of these prizes. I do love the lip butter though. It's a nice red shade and I was impressed at how long lasting it was for a lip butter! Unfortunately the illuminating stick came to me a little broken (all of the product had gotten stuck in the lid!) but I managed to save almost all of it. It might end up being too dark to use for my skin, but it will probably end up working in summer. The shower gel and lotion smell really nice too. I do love the colours of the nail polishes, but I've been trying to get through all the polish I've bought and haven't used so I haven't had a chance to use it yet... I have high hopes for it though.

MUA Undressed

Shades 1, 2, 3 & 4

Shades 5, 6, 7 & 8

Shades 9, 10, 11 and 12.

This part of the prize was the reason I was so happy I won this giveaway. Obviously I've seen a lot of good things about the Naked palettes, but I would never be able to justify buying one myself. I heard this was a great dupe so was stoked to win it. Regardless of whether it's a dupe or not, this is a great palette! They're all really wearable shades. So far I've gotten the most use out of shades 1, which is a great highlight, and 9 and 10, which give a lovely pinky-gold smokey eye look. I'm very happy with these shadows, they're a lovely texture and they stay very well (with the help of Australis' eye primer). I'm definitely thinking about buying more MUA palettes in the future (I have my eyes on pretty pastels and glamour days for when they have their next sale. They have a 35% off sale at the moment on their website, but I'm saving for Christmas at the moment).
