Hearts! and a giveaway

Maybe it's because Valentine's day is almost here but there's been a few heart themed releases. The first one I noticed was the mood boosting powders from Physicians Formula. I picked up the blushes, face powder and bronzer since there was a buy one get 50% off the second sale along with a $3 off coupon off on each item.

I love the design on these. They have a violet sent to them that is suppose to "provide a feeling of joy each time you apply". It's most noticeable in the pan but it fades once you apply it to your face. The scent reminds me of the Guerlain Meteorites powders =) There are also plant extracts that are meant to promote the feeling of happiness because they mimic the effects of Endorphins (feel good chemical released in your body). I don't know if I get a boost of happiness from these powders but they do go on very nicely. You can easily build up or play down the colors from the blush and bronzer. The face powder has a bit of shimmer to it but just enough so you have a bit of glow.
Blushes



Left: Rose (medium pink), Right: Natural (dusty rose)

Face Powder in Beige




Light Bronzer




The other super adorable item was the Make Me Blush palette from Stila. It's currently sold out on the stila.com site, but Sephora.com offers a set with the blush and 2 lipglazes. The gold is just an overspray. I haven't used this item yet since I want to preserve the cuteness just a bit longer.




So just to share some love, I'm giving away a new Stila Make Me Blush palette along with a Paul & Joe make up pouch, sheet masks, mini Posie tint, Paul & Joe skincare samples and a light pink lip balm.

I'm really loving Chanel Spring makeup right now. I just received my haul yesterday in the mail, I ordered the Ombre Perlees, Regard Perle and Black Pearl. I spend all day playing with them and I gotta say this is probably the best collection any brand has put out in a long time.

Thank you for holding the giveaway!
