Giveaway WINNER, FOTD and goodies!

I have a multi-purpose post for you, don't you love those?

First up, I know you're dying to know who the winner is... drumroll, please:


(insert fanfare and cheers)
Congratulations! I will be contacting her tonight and sending out her goodies this weekend! Thanks to all who entered and stay tuned... I'm bound to have a 250 followers one =P.

So now, onto the FOTD... sorry for the let down after such a glorious thing, eh?
I played with some Fyrinnae items and am pretty pleased with how this came out. The best part is what I used for the blush... check it!

- Mac Studio Fix Powder - NC20
- Barry M dazzledust in Pink Gold (as a blush, oh yes, you heard me... IT'S PERFECT <3)
- Mac Select MoistureCover in NW20
- Mac Studio Finish in NW20

- Mac e/s in Brown Down (brows)
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Maybelline Great Lash (clear for brows)
- Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
- Fyrinnae Chaotic Evil (lid)
- Fyrinnae Electro-Koi (inner eyes)
- Fyrinnae Candy Coated (crease)
- Sleek Bohemian matte black (liner)
- Estee Lauder Lash Primer
- Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous
- 2True Silver glitter on lashes

- Fyrinnae Lip Lustre Romantique

So overall, I am in love with the eyeshadows. Chaotic Evil was a bit finely milled and had trouble sticking to the Pixie Epoxy, but the other two were fine so I think it was just that color. It's still lovely -- I just have to practice with it more.

As for the lip lustre - I think it's meant to go over a lipstick. I like the texture of the product, it's glossy and shiny without being sticky. It's almost like a paint for your lips. However, Romantique turns VERY gold on me, so I think I need to layer it over a pink lipstick to make it more pinky. Beautiful shade, though.

Last thing... the blush. This was a last minute idea -- to use the dazzledust. I LOVE THIS. Glowy cheeks are in for summer and this totally does it in ONE step. I've got two close ups!

Excuse the slight lack of blending towards my nose, dunno what happened there. Anyway, hopefully you UK ladies can pick this up... there's TONS of product so it's sure to last you!

So I got my giveaway items from the lovely Robyn at Stay Beautiful.
I was soooo happy to get these items and am so pleased with them all! THANK YOU :) xxxx

I swear, this girl is my sista' from anotha' motha' (yeah it doesn't work as well as brotha' from anotha' motha', I know, shoot me) because I have ALWAYS wanted a pair of feather lashes. Zomg. I had to fan myself when I saw them. I'm already formulating a look for this weekend using them (*evil finger twitching*)

Last pic! Quick swatches!

Glitter liner in Va-Va Voom on top left, Boots Natural Collection lipstick on the bottom left (it's so lovely!!) and the 2 MUA eyeshadows. Omg, that darker purple... I'm running away with it and eloping.

Thanks again chica and that's all for this post, guys!
