Win It! 1st Day of Summer Giveaway!

Happy 1st Day of Summer, Friends! I have a pretty cool giveaway for you... and guess what?!? It's open internationally! 

Sadly, there's no nail polish in this prize pack (nail polish cannot be shipped internationally) but I think you will still like it! I thought about products that would be useful for everyone and I didn't purchase any color cosmetics since everyone has different tastes. I also added in some nail art goodies. So, let's take a look at what you can win!

e.l.f. Cosmetics

Hydrating Under Eye Primer: This is one of e.l.f.'s newest products; it contains Vitamins C & E, Shea, Green Tea, Aloe, and Ginko Biloba to nourish and condition the skin. It primes the under eye area to help prevent concealer from settling into fine lines and wearing off. The sheer, silky smooth texture reduces the appearances of fine lines, puffiness, and wrinkles. I have issues with dark circles and concealer never applying quite right under my eyes. When I saw this new product I immediately went to e.l.f.'s website to read reviews. After using it for a couple of weeks it is definitely hydrating and does not cause any irritation to my sensitive under eye area. A little goes a long way too. I only apply a very thin layer to avoid build up. Unfortunently it didn't really help prevent concealer from creasing on me but maybe you will have better results. Retail Value $3.00

Lip Exfoliator: Gently exfoliate lips to remove dry, chapped skin with our Lip Exfoliator! A sweet sugar and smoothing sensation, infused with Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape and Jojoba Oils to nourish and protect. This Lip Exfoliator treats and smoothes lips for a conditioned and revitalized feel. I really love how this smells and tastes; it's got a light sweet scent/flavor. I saw some complaints on the reviews but I don't think they were using this product correctly. In order to properly use this product you should apply a few drops of water to your lips. You also do not need to press hard when using this; just apply light pressure while you massage it over your lips. It has done a nice job of exfoliating my lips for me; I use it to prep my lips before applying lipstick. *Contains Aspartame. Retail Value $3.00

Lip Balm SPF 15 in Clear: Use the Studio Lip Balm SPF 15 to relieve and soothe lips with a drench of moisture. This lip balm features SPF 15 to help shield lips from harmful sun rays. Apply balm liberally to prevent and temporarily protect against chapped, cracked or chafed lips. I apply this after using the Lip Exfoliator to hydrate my lips. It works great. Retail Value $3.00

Mineral Eyeshadow Primer in Sheer: This gentle and completely sheer Eyeshadow Primer has key vitamins A, C and E to help prevent aging and moisturizes the skin. The formula glides on easily and disappears instantly to create longer-lasting, crease-proof eyeshadow. The Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is designed to be used with your favorite mineral eyeshadow to provide ultimate staying power for beautiful and vibrant color that lasts. All our mineral makeup are mineral-based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes. 

I was skeptical that this would impress me; I had been using both Too Faced and Urban Decay's primers and was very happy with them. But, I figured why not check out this one to see how it works. I've gotta admit this is a great product. You only need to use a very small dot on your brow bone and then on your lid. It's a very thin and silky consistency. It dries down quickly to a velvet finish. If you use too much product you will definitely experience creasing but if you only apply a very thin application (focus on the brow bone and lid; then blend into the crease ) it does a great job. It also brightens the eye area. Retail Value $3.00

Essential Nourishing Cuticle Pen: Relieves dry nails and flakey cuticles in a convenient pen design. The Nourishing Cuticle Pen moisturizes cuticles effectively and the quick dry formula allows for a no mess application. Fortified with Vitamins E, A, C, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Aloe, this fast-acting complex deeply hydrates, nourishes and seals in moisture. The key ingredients Avocado and Almond Oils help to condition nails and cuticles for improved appearance. The result is softer, easy to manage cuticles and healthy hydrated nails. I like that the oil doesn't run all over using this. I use light pressure as I gently massage it over my cuticles. Retail Value $1.00

Python Nail File in Teal: Take a walk on the wild side with this Python Nail File. Dual-sided python printed nail file provides a long lasting surface so you can create expertly shaped nails anytime, anywhere. A good basic nail file; you can't have too many of them. Retail Value $1.00


Nail Art Detail Brush: A short fine tipped brush perfect for detail work. Retail Value $5.50

Fun Shapes Nail GemsShow your fun and flirty side with these nail gems. Assorted shapes include hearts, butterflies, stars, triangles, circles and diamonds. Apply over wet Polish and top coat to secure. Retail Value $4.50
