Blog giveaway: Essence goodie bag

It’s officially 6 months since I started blogging and, as promised, I have a luscious Essence goodie bag to give out.

Apologies to the many guys who I also know follow this blog. Next time round I might have something for you. Like a Playboy bunny or two. We live in hope. OR you can try to win this for your other half. You’re still likely to get lucky, even if there’s no Playboy bunny in the equation.

A big thanks to Pharma Mt Ltd, in particular to Ms Daniela Baldacchino, for supporting this blog and offering this goodie bag. Pharma Mt Ltd are the people who get Essence products to Malta. They are now also offering Catrice, the sister brand that brings the ladies more luscious sparkly stuff. You can learn more about the brands by joining the Essence Facebook page here or by going to the Catrice website.

In your goodie bag you will find the following awesomeness:

1 Essence My Skin Tinted Moisturizer (oil free and smells great, of peach and berry)

1 Essence Blossoms nail polish

1 Essence Blossoms Multi-Colored Powder

1 Essence Cute As Hell mini mobile mirror

1 Essence I love Berlin nail fashion stickers (easy peasy to apply and oh-so-funky)

1 Essence Cute As Hell blush

1 Essence I love Berlin liquid eye liner in a pearly turquoise colour

1 Essence Colour and Shine eyeshadow in grey

1 Essence Cute As Hell pink nail polish

1 Essence mini files

1  Essence Blossoms lipgloss

1 Essence pocket blush and mirror

and…the piece de resistance…

1 Catrice fuschia lipstick in the funky neon shade that is all the rage for the coming spring/summer season. This will only be available locally as of March, so it’s really the newest of the new.

  7. vee says:

    So I feel awfully shallow for signing up to your blog because it seems like I’m only doing it for those innovative-looking beauty products with their feel-good catchphrases on them. They’re clever, those phrases. Because I want to be as “cute as hell” now. Hell yeah, in fact. My disclaimer is that I already followed your blog, without actually signing up and letting wordpress, and you, know that I was. In fact, you can take it as a compliment that I wasn’t signed up as I would return to it without the need for any reminders! Keep blogging oh writerly one :)
