A few weeks ago, I received a most pleasant surprise when Tigritsa emailed me to say that I had won her 500-follower giveaway that she hosted at the end of October! If you don’t already follow Tigritsa’s blog, please do! I’ve been reading her blog since the summer and she takes the most beautiful, envy-inducing flatlays. She was incredibly generous and sent me so many items that I could barely fit them all into a group shot! Continue below to see all the goodies she gifted.
Clinique Go-Go Eyes Set
The giveaway included a set of Clinique sample-sized items, including the Take the Day Off makeup remover, the Pep-Start eye cream, and the Chubby Lash mascara. It’s been a really, really long time since I’ve used any Clinique products, so I’m looking forward to start again.
Peter Thomas Roth Just Mask It Set
Tigritsa also gave me this Peter Thomas Roth set which included an Irish Moor Mud purifying black mask, the Cucumber Gel detoxifying mask, and the 23K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask. It seems to have some Irish/St. Patrick’s Day theme going on? I haven’t tried any of these sets but so I’m pretty dang excited to make my face completely GOLD!
Fresh Rose Face Mask
I’ve used a few Fresh face products before, but this one isn’t one of them. I’ve heard a lot of good things about their Rose line!
Julep Love Your Bare Face Hydrating Cleansing Oil
I love me some cleansing oils, so I can’t wait to give this one a shot.
Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Oil-Free Perfecting Creme
I’ve heard quite good reviews about this moisturizer in the past, so I’m looking forward to testing it out for myself!
I love using masks because they feel so pampering, but I rarely buy them anymore, so I’m happy I get to try all of these as they look awesome. Also included are three Biore pore strips. I’m going to let my husband try one – I was talking about pore strips a few months ago and he had no idea what I was talking about! It’s time for him to experience the grossness/fascination of using a pore strip.
NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette – The Pinks
I didn’t even know that NYX had these NYX lip palettes, but the shades are calling out to me!
CoverGirl Melting Pout in 125 Gel Yes
I’ve actually been a bit curious to try this line ever since it was released. I think this might be a classic red, so perfect for the holidays!
NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella
I own Cruella from the Sephora birthday gift two (?) years ago and I really love the shade and the formula.
Pure Cosmetics Nude Collection Eye Palette
I assumed this might be a dupe for the UD Naked 1 palette, but it seems like more of a mix between 2 and 3 instead? Lots of mauve/taupey shades, which is my favourite!
TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony
This is a matte burgundy shade, which is awesome because I don’t own anything like this. I’ll need to find a way to depot this!
LuxieBeauty Small Angle Brush
All the angle brushes I own have become a little…frayed, for lack of a better word – they don’t really give me sharp edges anymore. This is the perfect addition to my collection!
Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Eyeshadow Duo in Vanilla and Espresso
I’d never even heard of the brand Vintage until now, but I looked up the brand and they look like they have some really beautiful products! I think Vanilla would be the perfect browbone shade and Espresso is perfect to deepen up the crease.
Pop Beauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple
I looooove purple liners, and this one even comes with a smudger on the other end.
Anastasia Liquid Lipstick Kit
It’s funny because I had actually thought about buying this set around October-November, so you can imagine how excited I was to get this as part of the giveaway! In my Anastasia liquid lipsticks review, I talked about how much I love the ABH liquid lipstick formula, and these shades seem right up my alley.
Stila Big Shots Set
This comes with the Stila Big Shots mascara and the Stay All Day Liquid Liner. The liquid liner is one of my favourites out there, and one can never go wrong with being able to try out a new mascara.
Julep Nail Colour in Charissa
I have never owned any Julep nail polishes before, but I’ve always wanted to. Charissa is a gorgeous mauve, which is right up my alley!
Ciate London Paint Pot in in Dangerous Affair
I’ve only ever tried Ciate polishes in special finishes (denim, velvet, etc), so I’m interested in experiencing a regular crème polish from them. This looks like a classic red, which is always a staple in every nail polish collection.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This Smashbox primer is a favourite in the beauty community, but because I don’t wear foundation too often, I’ve never had the chance to give it a try!
Benefit The Porefessional Primer
This is a hugely popular primer for a lot of people, but similar to the Smashbox primer, I’ve actually never tried it before!
First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer
Is this a moisturizer, or a primer, or both? I like the idea of a priming moisturizer! I am also hoping it smells like coconut!
Bath & Body Works Coconut and Vanilla Hand Cream
One can never have enough hand creams, and this is the perfect size to put into a handbag. I gave it a quick sniff and it’s coconutty goodness – I’m definitely saving this for the summer!
Bath & Body Works Pretty as a Peach Bath Fizzy
I never treat myself to cute bath items, so it’s nice to get something like this. Time for me to take a relaxing bath!
Trestique Stick Highlighter
I’m not allowed to buy any more highlighters this year, so I’m ecstatic I have a highlighter added to my collection without technically buying it!
Model Co. Blush in Peach Bellini
I haven’t swatched this blush yet but the shade looks absolutely stunning in the pan!
Aaaand that’s it’s for today! Whew, that was a lot! A massive thank you again to Tigritsa for the awesome products – I really can’t wait to try them!
