Winning (+NOTD)

Monday, 14 May 2012

This post was supposed to be posted on Friday, but I must have pressed the 'Save' button, rather than the 'Publish' one as it wasn't published and I thought it had... Oops, that's what you get for blogging when you're tired!

Anyway, I was super lucky to win the lovely Leanne's 3 year anniversary, 2000 followers and 500 posts giveaway. She was asking for suggestions for nail designs and I suggested 'The Hunger Games'. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm bragging, but I just wanted to share a sneak peek into the things I won because I am so overwhelmed with the prizes and so excited to try everything! :D Thank you so much Leanne, I am so grateful!

Leanne posted all the prizes with a lovely little note with it :) When I opened the parcel, I felt like a child at Christmas!! The main biggie was the Sleek Spotlight Kit, which is absolutely amazing! I can't wait to try everything out. I can't stop staring at all the the pretty blushers! The other prizes came in a lovely orange box and had a mix of things, including an Orly nail polish, an OPI nail polish, Max Factor goodies, Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm, etc.

I knew straight away that I wanted to use one of the products and opted for the much talked about Max Factor's Fantasy Fire. It's a lovely purple duochrome. The formulation was quite sheer and took 4 coats to get a somewhat opaque colour. I should have probably looked around online before applying, because a lot of people recommend wearing it over another nail polish. But the colour is super pretty! I love it!
