Winning Giveaways Is Fun, Especially When You Win MAC!

Awhile ago I entered a giveaway The Makeup Divas blog for some items from MAC's Surf Baby collection.  Ever did I expect to win.  But I actually did!  This is the coolest thing I have ever won! I don't enter too many giveaways because I would feel bad entering ones on blogs I don't read or don't plan on reading and I also don't enter giveaways where I know I probably wouldn't use what they're offering or already own something similar.  It wouldn't be fair to the other people who really wanted it.

Upon looking at the swatches of the lipsticks I won online, I'm not sure that I will actually use them that often so I still haven't tried them.  I'm going to hold on to them and give them to someone I know who would actually use them.  But everything else I got I absolutely love.  Here are a few pictures and swatches.

Quite a generous giveaway, right? can you see why I was excited?

Sun Blonde and Surf USA
Surf the Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigments
These are super gorgeous.  I haven't worn them yet, but they're super pigmented and really do look like crushed metal powder.  And the way the gold forms little nuggets is so cool!  These have a tendency to clump together and don't spread without a little pressure so I'm not quite sure how they will work as eyeshadows.  I will just have to try and find out!

See? Super gorgeous.

Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!


  1. Not gonna lie. Burning with jealousy. =P

    Still, I hope you enjoy! =D

  2. Ahh that is so awesome! The pigments look gorgeous!

  3. As the kids these days say, I'm 'well jell.' Lucky you!

  4. How cool! Congrats! I know what you mean about giveaways. I think I have entered maybe 20 of Karen's (Makeup and Beauty Blog) Sephora gift card giveaways and I have never won. I do love holding giveaways on my own blog, despite being broke all the time! LOL. I don't know, I just like the feeling of making others happy. A woman from Australia won my Burmese Beauty giveaway. She told me it was the first time she'd ever won anything and she just gushed happiness. That made me feel really good. :)

  5. Ooh congratulations on winning! That gold pigment looks SO COOL! Little golden nuggets :D

  6. I'm loving Sun Blonde! Ugh! Why didn't I buy it when I had the chance. CONGRATS!

  7. Holy crap, so jealous! :P Congrats on the great prize though. Those metallic pigments look AMAZING!


Thank you so much for your comments! I appreciate them all and read every one!
