300 Follower Giveaway! (NOW CLOSED)


I know this has been a long time coming, as I hit 300 just before Christmas, however there were so many Christmas giveaways on the go, I thought I would wait and gather up some nice items for it.

So, here we go!
Up for grabs are Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, MUA Immaculate Collection Palette, VO5 Miracle Concentrate, Superdrug Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream, MeMeMe Moonbeam Highlighter and Accessorize Aztec Nail Polish.

Here we have a closer look at the items...

The MeMeMe Moonbeam Highlighter is a bit of a dupe for Benefit's Highbeam, and I love it! It gives a healthy, dewy glow to the skin and a little goes a long way, so it lasts for ages. The Accessorize Aztec Nail Polish is such a difficult shade to describe... it gleams from purple to green to gold. It is really stunning.
You have no doubt heard me profess my love for VO5 Miracle Concentrate on here before. It is a fabulous hair oil that keeps hair healthy, shiny and soft. I also love this Superdrug Illuminating Moisture Cream as it gives skin a beautiful glow either when worn alone or under foundation, or even as a highlight. Again, a little goes a long way otherwise you can look like a discoball!

The MUA Immaculate Collection palette has a great selection of shades, and even an Urban Decay Dupe or two! You can see my review of this palette here.
I'm sure you have seen a blog post or two on these beauties! The infamous Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers. They are used in nearly every YouTube make up tutorial I've ever watched, and frequently referred to as the best that there are. I bought two pairs at my make up course; one for me and one for you! These are brand new, so please excuse the dent in the box, they got a bump or two in my bag on the way home.
So now the basics...

The Rules:
-  This giveaway is open internationally (please note that if the winner lives in the UK the prize will be sent recorded delivery, however if the winner lives outside the UK, this will not be possible)
