February 2013 Starbox - Lauren Clark Edition!

The months leading up to the launch of this box were a little stressful and chaotic on my end. That's because Starlooks asked me to collaborate with them to come up with the February 2013 Starbox!

Why me? Well for starters, their whole thing is they want to team up with up-and-coming artists rather than celebrities..because people already know who celebs are, so why not help out the up-and-coming people and help get their name out? Secondly, I've been a long time starbox customer and have reviewed them every month, something that didn't go unnoticed with them.

They first reached out to me in December about doing this box. We talked about the products that could go in there. Then they sent me the products to make sure I like them and could work with them. I gave the stamp of approval, then Starlooks quickly set up a photoshoot for me in my area. It was very fun to be a part of that when normally I'm the behind-the-scenes person in a photoshoot. Here are a few pictures from the shoot:


It got so exciting when they told me the boxes were going to be shipped soon:

And finally...the boxes arrived at people's houses

So...here's what's in the box:

1. Princess Diaries Gel Eyeliner
2. Pink Oasis Lip Gloss
3. Barbie HD Fluid Blush
4. Tipsy Lip Pencil

Pink Oasis Lipgloss, Princess Diaries Gel Liner, and Barbie HD Fluid Blush

I will show you the swatch of Tipsy Lip Pencil in just a minute...

but first, I want to tell you about  my Lauren Clark Lip Sets that are coming out. My favorite color from Starlooks is the Tipsy color, which is a beautiful bright coral. So my lipsets will include the Tipsy Lip Pencil, Tipsy Lipstick, and Tipsy Gloss. There's also a bonus Coral HD Fluid Blush!!

Sorry I don't have the blush in my possession to swatch, but I will swatch it tomorrow and post it for you!

Here are some ways you can use the contents of the box!

 
 Please let me know how you like everything!!

MAC Giveaway! Charity Fundraiser!

Hi everyone!

I have a really exciting prize for everyone -- but first, I want to explain what this is all about. My daughter is raising money for the American Heart Association. We set our goal at $1000 and we're about 17% there right now! I wanted to give my readers the opportunity to donate to this great cause as well as enter themselves into my MAC Giveaway!

We did this last year and had a great turn out. This year the prize is 10x better!

THE PRIZE


First Place
MAC Archie's Girls Veronica's Blush Pearlmatte Face Powder
MAC Archie's Girls Ronnie Red Lipstick
and FOUR MAC Pro eyeshadows to include: Deep Damson, Kelly, Indian Ink, and Bottle Green.


2nd Place
MAC Pro Fusion Pink Lipstick

Everything is brand new in box.

The reason I chose those 4 shadows is because they're pro, and although pro products are now available online, it's still not as easy as going to your local mac and checking everything out. MAC Pro shadows are sooo pigmented and smooth and wonderful to use, so I wanted to share them with you guys :)

So as you can see there will be 2 winners.

HOW TO ENTER

To enter this contest, I need you to leave a comment under this post and tell me what your first makeup memory is and your email address. In addition, I'm asking that all of my entrants also contribute to the American Heart Association using this link: https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?msource=Gigya&ievent=1036377&supId=375934650.

For every $5 that you donate, you are entered an additional time. So if you leave a comment, that's one entry. If you also donate $5, you'd be entered twice. If you donate $25, you'll be entered 6 times (once for the comment, and 5 times for the donation!) **be sure that you're not doing it anonymously, otherwise I won't know how many times to enter you!**

By law, it is not required that you donate to enter this contest, but because I'm doing this giveaway as incentive for everyone to donate...I am strongly urging it. You can do any amount, there is no minimum.

This contest ends 2/26/2013 at 5pm EST. I will announce the winner the following day.
