A BIG congratulations to the winner of my bi-monthly giveaway, Rosemary from tropical St. Thomas!! (one of my favorite Islands to visit) :-).
This is what Rosemary had to say about being the lucky winner:
Kim- THANK YOU so very much for the opportunity to win. I have been so inspired by you for many months now. Even though you don’t know me personally, you have accepted my friend request on FB, responded to my likes of your posting and even liked some of my postings. You are truly a genuine person! Keep being yourself and I wish you much success on your new blog (and everything else, of course!).
Rosemary’s winnings was a “Color My Life Eye & Lip Makeup Tablet” from the Sephora Collection. Enjoy!
As most of you know by now, I’m not a “makeup snob” and I’m of the opinion that if you are a true makeup artist you can work with absolutely any makeup brand as long as it is of good quality. Whether it’s a high-end brand, or simply purchased from you local drug store, has no importance to me in getting my job done successfully.
Maybelline as we know it, is a stable on the market of makeup and has been around since 1915. Earlier this year they launched a creamy blush stick (that only now I get around to trying…SO many products to try) , Face Studio Master Glaze. It comes in 6 gorgeous shades. High in pigment, buildable and leaves that wonderful dewy look. It’s fragrance free and suitable for all skin types.
One of the things that is really neat about it, is that it can also be used for your eyes or lips. How about that! And as usual Maybelline doesn’t leave anyone out. The blush stick is only $9.99. Who can argue with that price.
Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline :-)
A Winner has been chosen and we will post what the lucky winner is going to receive shortly! :-D

“THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely love everything that i received. I am a fairly new makeup enthusiast and all my new goodies have been a huge help in my experimenting journey. I had never used an eye shadow primer before and it is life changing! The eye shadow goes on much more vibrant and stays that way for much longer. The brushes feel so nice on my skin and I am enjoying figuring out what exactly im supposed to be doing with them lol love it all! Thanks!!”

Yeay!!! TARTE has come out with a gorgeous NEW limited eye and cheek palette. Wonderful “husky” (don’t ask that word just came to mind and fitted) :-) and subtle colors. Great pigmentation and comes in the most divine and mysterious compact case. It’s the perfect palette to take with you on the go or your travels, as it entails everything you need for your eyes and cheeks.
One of the reasons that I like TARTE so much, as some of you might know by now. Is because their makeup is cruelty free and infused with skin invigorating ingredients. That makes it even better :-)
Rainforest After Dark Limited-Edition Colored Clay Eye & Cheek Palette.

It’s 98 degrees outside and you are working up a sweat, trying to keep up with reapplying and retouching your makeup.
Here is a few simple and inexpensive steps that you can take to stay shine free throughout the day.
Make Up For Ever, Mist & Fix promises just that. It’s lightweight and non sticky and suitable for all skin types. Apply it after you finish putting on your makeup and it will keep you shine free up til 12 hours. Not bad for such a little guy :-).
The other thing that is very helpful to carry around in your bag (I never leave home without them, especially summer time), is BOSCIA fashionably matte. They instantly blot away any excess oil and comes in a cute holder that has a built-in mirror. So wherever you are, you can check your makeup. %100 cruelty free.
If this is your first time trying either one of these products. I suggest that you start off with a travel size as shown.
Make Up For Ever Mist and, Fix travel size $12
BOSCIA fashionably Matte, limited edition $15
