(CLOSED) HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY: LORAC Eye Candy Collection

I saw this and just HAD to do it for a giveaway. LORAC has released the coolest collection of eye and face colors, all packaged up to look like chocolate holiday candy.

I used the Sephora pictures for this because my pictures don’t even REMOTELY do justice to this collection. It is AMAZING. There are six ‘candy bars’ with four colors each. Each bar represents a different color scheme. I fell head over heels in love with this idea, and there was no way I was going to pass up an opportunity to pay it forward.

YOU MUST BE A PUBLIC SUBSCRIBER TO QUALIFY. YOU CAN AMP YOUR CHANCES BY FOLLOWING ‘ADVENTURES IN MAKEUP’ ON FACEBOOK, FOLLOWING VIA NETWORKED BLOGS, AND FOLLOWING @shahadakarim ON TWITTER. IT HELPS A LOT TO LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS WHEN YOU LIST YOUR ENTRIES (makes it a lot easier to contact you if you win). 
THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON DECEMBER 31ST. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Giveaway: Chanel Holiday 2011 Highlighter

Hi!

The Chanel Highlighter from Holiday 2011 is likely the most coveted piece in the collection. Initial swatches rendered it too ashy for my warm skin, until I learned how to use it. I found that if you ‘press’ it into foundation as it sets, it gives the desired result:

I thought that I’d share in the marvel that is Holiday Highlighting, and pay forward one of these collector-worthy highlighters in a giveaway!

You guys know the drill… you MUST be a Public Subscriber/Follower to qualify.  That means, you have to show up on GFC… because if I can’t see you, I can’t enter you. You can get additional entries by following me on Twitter @Shahadakarim, liking Adventures In Makeup on Facebook, following via Networked Blogs, linking the giveaway on your blog, and actually blogging about the giveaway in a separate post.

Holiday Giveaway: Golden Opportunity (Part 1)

So, I thought I’d spare you guys the wait, and post the next prize. I know a lot of people were interested in this last giveaway, so here’s the next one!

I took pictures of  ‘portions’ of this prize, because I couldn’t find a really nice way to stage them in one shot. So here goes:

1-Dior Eyeshadow in GOLD TOUCH
(TOTALLY covet-worthy. Review coming)
1-Dior Nail Polish in Czarina Gold
1-Dior Nail Polish in Timeless Gold
1-8oz HABIBI Body Balm in Sugar Cane
1-Rock & Republic Blush in Call Me
(IMPOSSIBLE to get these days. Totally covet-worthy. Reviewed here: http://shahadakarim.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-holiday-2010-favorite-things-blush.html )
1-NARS Nail Polish in Purple Rain
(I’d be surprised if anyone can still find this. It’s sold out everywhere I normally shop)
1-NARS Nail Polish in Zulu

(This came out a couple of years ago… totally sold out everywhere … had folks forking over $95 on Ebay… then came back as part of the Vintage Collection this year… totally sold out AGAIN!)

1-NARS Lipstick in Petit Monstre
(Part of the current Holiday 2010 collection. Fairly diffucult to score at hot spots like Sephora)
Here it is all together. See… it’s kind of diffucult to make pretty. But I wanted you guys to get an idea of what everything looked like together.
