So about a couple of months ago, I said to myself, "Sarah, your blog's almost a year old. Make you should think about doing a giveaway." I was going to wait until I got 100 followers on Bloglovin', but... nah. Rather, I thought I'd hold a giveaway for sticking it out for a whole year -- because, let's be honest, I wasn't sure that I was going to stick it out for as long as I have!
Given that a good number of you are located overseas, I wanted to give one lucky a person a nice stash of popular Australian drugstore products that might be difficult for some of you to get your paws on. They're not all products I own (because, y'know, student life = poor life), but I've done my best to find products that other people have raved about.
Let's take a look at what you could win!
Chi Chi Glamorous Gel Eyeliner Set || This set has ten eye liners that claim to be highly pigmented, waterproof and smudge-proof. It was a limited edition collection that came out around Christmastime, and it's no longer available for purchase in stores. This set has the following colours:
- "Lo Cal Chocolate" -- rich brown in a matte
- "Midas Touch" -- an easy to wear gold in a metallic finish
- "Caribbean Queen" -- turquoise green in a shimmery metallic finish
- "Black Is Black" -- the blackest black in a matte
- "Diamonds In The Sky" -- glamorous black with very fine silver glitter
- "Like A Virgin" -- white matte
- "Boys Boys Boys" -- a pretty baby blue matte shade
- "Dream Lover" -- a cobalt blue in a shimmery metallic finish
- "Beauty School Dropout" -- the perfect purple in a slightly shimmery finish
- "Hopelessly Devoted" -- a bright hot pink that you will want to wear on your lips as well
Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayon in "Sundae" || Similar in shape and form to similar products by CoverGirl and Revlon, this lip crayon looks like a natural brown that would be great for fuss-free everyday wear.
Face of Australia Lip Paints || I've got three of these to give to the winner, in three super-pigmented shades: "Tangerine Queen", a bright vivid orange; "Poison Apple", a red fit for any queen; and "Very Berry", a super vampy blackened plum. These can be applied straight from the tube, but they can get a little messy -- you might want to think about using a brush! I think these might now be a discontinued line, as I haven't seen them when I've been in Priceline lately.
Face of Australia Lip Quench SPF30+ Lipsticks || I decided to add two of these to prize pack yesterday -- after almost very much keeping them for myself! These have jojoba oil and Vitamin E, amongst others, and contain SPF30, which makes them the perfect product for either summer or winter! The shades I included are "Power Surge" (which looks like a bold red -- there weren't any testers in the store!) and "Pink Champagne" (a really pretty pink that could lean towards the nude side -- I'm thinking something like Julianne's Nude from the L'Oreal collection).
Australis AC/ME Cream Eyeshadow in "Bronzonce" || Let me just say: you pronounce it "bron-zon-say" (rhymes with Beyoncé) not "bron-zons". That's what I'm rolling with, anyway. This metallic gold eye shadow is in my collection and I absolutely love it. I find that I get the best results when I apply it using my finger, and it lasts all day. It is, without a doubt, the best shade from this limited edition collection.
Australis AC/ME Velourlips Matte Lip Creams || The Velourlips range are arguably the star of the Australis show, and I have two colours for you in this giveaway! There's "Grandmaster Pash", a brownish red colour, and "Rhi Rhi Wine-d", a more natural brown shade. These lip products dry down to a matte finish, but are somewhat more comfortable to wear than products in the regular Velourlips range.
Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lip Gloss in "Fandango" || This is a really pretty natural red-toned coral that smells rather nice. It's not as sheer as other lip glosses I've tried, but it's not completely opaque either, so it's great if you want to bring some colour to your lips without packing a punch.
