Mini Haul-Giveaways Recieved

Heya Fellow Gurus!

I entered into a few contests, since I started to blog more regularly in June. I’m happy to note that I have won four contests! So, this is my giveaway haul of all the things that I won from the ah-mazing Jen (http://shadowdancer.wordpress.com) here on wordpress. She has subscribed to countless subscription boxes, beauty or otherwise. So, be sure to check out her site to see what she thinks about each one. I know she is cutting her least favorites out. Now, I know which ones I should give a try and ones that I am glad I won’t be wasting money on. I am going to head right into the giveaway haul now, but I also did purchase something this week that I will be adding at the end.

The package was neatly packaged and nothing got damaged during shipment. The whole thing smelled like perfume. *sigh* Lovely. It was a very pleasing smell. The big bag only had perfume in it, but I put everything else in there too for safe keeping until I put everything away. It got here surprisingly quick, which was a pleasant surprise to me. It made my day.

Satin bagged perfumePerfume samples

The perfume was in cute little satin bags and had 6 samples in each one. They were repeat samples, though. I always wanted to try the Oscar de la Renta perfume and now, I can. It is the Essential Luxuries line and I am excited to try them all!!!

Origins samples

I’ve always wanted to try something from Origins and now I can. I am an SPF addict and this will definitely be used up soon.


I love, love, love Philosophy! I am excited to try this scent. I heard that it smells true to life like cinnamon buns. I hope that’s true, because I love that smell. I have a vanilla cake flavor of the shower gel as well and it works great as a bubble bath.

Blushes Ferropink blush
bronzey blushblush swatches

These blushes are super pigmented and long wearing! I am wearing it now and it looks great on my skin tone. The pink one is called Suzie’s Glow and the bronzy one is Terra Cotta. I will use the bronze one more as a bronzer than a blush, since it is quite dark on my fair yellow undertone skin. The pink is on the left and the bronze on the right. Both are very flattering on my skin.

spf lotion

I purchased this at Ocean State Job Lot for 5 US DOLLARS. I needed an spf for my sensitive face and this one is supposed to be the best according to Danielle (http://daniellec1992.wordpress.com) for that type of issue.

Well, that’s it for today! Hope you enjoyed it!

With Love,
