Giveaway Time!

Hi everyone!

I know I’ve been missing from my blog but that’s because I’ve been vlogging. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to daily vlog for 2017 and I’ve kept up with it! You can keep up with everything going on with my life from Hugo’s chemo to my most recent microblading endeavor.

I’ve been collecting giveaway items since my last few giveaways and I couldn’t wait any longer! 🙂

The Gleam widget is only for entry for the makeup. To enter the giveaway for the Sephora gift card you need to follow the directions on the Instagram post. For full giveaway rules and information just click on “terms and conditions” on the Gleam widget.

*winner for Instagram part (the $50 Sephora gift card) is:

Alina's Instagram Giveaway - March

***edit*** as I mentioned on my vlogs, the original winner for the makeup never replied so I had to use gleam’s random selector to pick a new winner. ***

I will reach out to the winners within 72 hours and they have 24 hours to respond. DO NOT REACH OUT TO ME AS IT WILL DISQUALIFY YOU. Just be patient please.




It appears Tarte Cosmetics has no chill when it comes to Black Friday, so they started the sale early! 25% OFF EVERYTHING!! 

screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-5-44-37-pmI decided to make a post sharing my recommendations for this sale based on things I’ve used and that are in stock at the moment. Many things have already sold out so definitely get on this if you’re interested.

Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette  | This palette sold out crazy fast the first time, so if you missed out, get it ASAP.

Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in shades tbt, lovespell and twerk | I prefer these over the quick dry version they just released. They don’t feel drying and they last pretty decently on me.

Color Vibes Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow Palette | I ended up really enjoying this palette and it’s a lot of product for the price.

Tarteist Clay Paint Liner | Super black eyeliner that isn’t in a pot form so you aren’t depositing germs back in it every time you use it.

Hybrid Gel Foundation | I love this foundation. I’ve been using it for filming a lot lately. Great coverage in one coat.

Maracuja C-brighter Eye Treatment  | One of my favorite eye creams. Has a great consistency, not too thin not too thick.

Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder | My favorite loose powder for an HD finish without cakeiness.

Timeless Smoothing Primer | Smooths the F out of my pores. It’s like spackle for your face.

What are you guys going to get during this sale? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
