  1. Kat

    Hi there! I’m in Canada! One product I very recently tried was an Orly 180/100 nail file! I found it a great improvement over my drugstore file. It works well to use both sides in combination ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also about to do my first manicure with an Essie styenomics collection colour! Thanks for the giveaway!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Kat!

      Cool – I haven’t heard anything about Orly’s nail files, so I’m glad you mentioned it. I’ve just been using my glass nail file for years. It took a while to get used to it, though, because it’s a bit like nails on a chalkboard…haha!

      Thanks for being the very first person to enter the giveaway! ๐Ÿ˜€ You’re fast!

  2. Keira

    I just picked up Bath & Body Works’ Dreamy Vanilla Woods triple moisture body cream and I love it! It smells so good. Curiously enough, to me it smells an awful lot like the Serendipitous perfume, for a fraction of the price. The texture and consistency is great, too. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy at all.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Keira!

      What country are you from? I need to know that to put your name in the correct draw since there’ll be 2 winners – one from Canada/US and one International.

  3. Heather

    I’m not a make-up wearer, the only make-up I’m into is nail polish. I recently (finally) tried out my China Glaze glow in the dark topcoat! I painted a couple coats over my existing (green) mani, then did black splatters over it, so even when it’s glowing it’s splattered. =) If I hold my hands up to the light for a bit there’s a decent glow, but I think I need to sit under the light a bit longer to get a more long-lasting effect.

    All the polish colors you chose for this giveaway are gorgeous. =9

    (I’m in the US.)

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Heather!

      That’s such a cool idea you had to do glow-in-the-dark plus a splattered effect! Take photos – I bet it looks really neat!

      YAY – I’m glad that you liked my polish choices! Haha, I’m going to be envious of the people who win because I don’t own anything from this giveaway. But all the stuff looks great in the reviews I’ve read online.

      1. Heather

        I tried to take a picture but my phone puts off too much light for the glow-in-the-dark to be visible! I need to remember to try my proper camera…I should do it now, while I’m thinking about it. =)

  4. Angie

    I don’t try many new beauty products. I tend to stick with what I know do to allergies. However, I did give Cover Girl’s Lash Blast Mascara a try last week and really liked it. I also used China Glaze “Unpredictable” from the Bohemian Collection and LOVE it. The color is beyond gorgeous.

    I’m in the US.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Angie!

      Aww…sorry to hear about your allergies. That must make it more challenging to find beauty products. I also have an allergy to one cosmetic ingredient, so I have to always read the label when it comes to products I put on my face. Otherwise, my skin (and eyes) will get red and puffy.

  5. Cherie Boult

    A few things I have tried recently:

    I obtained some new Pure Fiji body products (sugar scrub, body lotion and body oil)-they are amazing and smell delicious!
    I also finally got my hands on some China Glaze NP- hauled 11 at once. I’m from New Zealand and it’s pretty hard to find around here, especially at a decent price ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Angela

    US here. Love everything you picked out for this give-away!

    The newest thing I’ve tried was actually sent to me by a Facebook friend and that would be Mary Kay’s mineral powder. I really like the ease of which it goes on and it covered nearly all the imperfections in my skin tone.

    Good luck everyone!

      Hey Angela!

      Glad that you liked the prizes I chose. I really wanted to offer a wide variety so it would appeal to most of my readers. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Momo

    I’ve been using the Hard Candy concler that they sell at Walmart and I LOVE it!! Gives great coverage and doesn’t show fine lines or dry out my skin. I think everyone should def. try it out and I really hope I can win b/c I’m in love with everything by Milani, LOL. I live in the US btw =D

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Momo!

      I’ve heard so many great things about that concealer…and how it covers very well with just a little product! But going to a Wal-Mart is really out of the way for me, so I hardly ever shop there. I wish that Hard Candy products were sold elsewhere.

  8. Sophie

    Im in the United States. One product that I have tried recently is a Jordana top coat, sorry to say but I’m not a fan of it, this product tends to make my polish bubble a ton. The first couple times it wa fine but I continued to use it and got disappointed.:(

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Sophie!

      Thanks for the heads up. I’ve never tried that top coat, but I think I’ll steer clear of it. Besides, Seche Vite and Nubar Diamont work well for me.

  9. Shannon

    Hey Mary! This is awesome! I love the updates to your page banner too. Very neat – and I’m a huge fan of the Cheshire Cat. Not too long ago I treated myself to this gorgeous Swarovski bracelet: <—- How awesome is that!?

    I recently used Orly Dazzle for french tips. It's a gorgeous super shiny silver and probably my favourite silver right now. Application is really great and it only needs 1 or 2 coats for super bling action.

    I'm in New Zealand by the way!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Shannon!

      Glad you liked the additions! ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my readers, Vivian, did that for me. I really wanted to make the polish come to life, and with her talented background in graphic design, she whipped it up for me. (If you need any images, feel free to contact her. There’s a link at the very bottom.) ๐Ÿ˜€

      Wow, that Cheshire Cat bracelet is really cool!

  10. Mary

    I’m in America. I recently tried and fell in love with Benefit’s Cha Cha Tint, it combines beautifully with my naturally pigmented lips and gives a great, long lasting coral color!

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Mary!

      I’ve heard how versatile it is, too. Wish I cold try it, but I think it has one ingredient that I’m allergic to. ๐Ÿ™ I’ll enjoy it vicariously through you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Amanda

    I recently bought one of Urban Decay’s primers and I’ve been happy with it so far, no creasing and the shadows are nice and bright over it.

    Great collection of goodies you picked out!

    I’m in Canada:)

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Amanda!

      Yay for another Canadian! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah, I absolutely love the Urban Decay primers. I can use all of them except for Sin and the original one, just because of an ingredient those contain that irritates my eyes. The others don’t seem to bother my eye, though, and they keep my shadow lasting all day and night. Love them!

  12. Karimah

    I have always been a lip gloss kind of girl and just recently started to wear lipstick… I’m in love…its fall and I see the trend for dark lips, so I pick up Kate 04 by Rimmel and love the dark purple lip on me…I’m in the U.S. Virgin Islands

  13. Jule

    I’ve recently tried the nailpolish Catrice Paris from the Big City Life LE.
    I like the color a lot, but it could be more opaque.

    I’m in Germany.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Julie!

      Everyone talks about how great Catrice is, but I’ve never tried anything from them. I’ve drooled over many swatches online, though. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Thea

    Picked up quite a few things at a beauty expo that was held in Johannesburg, South Africa in September. Still have a few untrieds but something that I picked up besides a crap load of nail polishes, was a soy body massage candle by Indulgence Spa Products. I love it! It works great for massages as you don’t need to use tons. It can also be used as a moisturiser! Plus my room permanently smells like vanilla/lavender lately, which is awesome!

    Shout out from South Africa! ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Katie

    Hi Mary! I recently bought a nude colored eyeliner from pixi that was supposed to make my eyes appear bigger and more “awake”. Sadly I was disappointed with the results. It didn’t make enough of a difference to be worth the price. :/

    Thanks for the giveaway! Your blog entries give me something to look forward to each morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Katie!

      Aww, sorry to hear that it didn’t work out for you. But I hope that you found something better that did the job.

      I’m so happy to hear that you enjoy visiting my blog! And sorry for the delayed reply. I’m trying to catch up with a lot of the comments on this and the other post where I met Suzi of OPI. Hopefully I’ll be able to reply to everyone’s comments!

  16. Mani

    I’m from the US

    I just recently used Sinful Colors nail polish Lets Meet and I was a little disappointed how sheer it was. I applied two coats of it and even then in real light its just…too sheer and too sparkly. I’m one of those people who doesn’t enjoy applying several coats of nail polish. I’m impatient when it comes to them drying XD. But now I know to find a more opaque yellow brand. Any suggestions?
    Mani recently posted: Cat Scratch Fever

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Mani!

      I know how you feel. I also dislike having to apply more than 3 coats of polish…unless the colour is truly spectacular.

      That’s a good question. I actually haven’t come across a really opaque yellow polish yet! For some reason, they always seem to need 4 or more coats! ๐Ÿ™

  17. Nikki

    Hi! Great giveaway! I recently tried maybelline’s cat eye mascara and love it! The brush is sturdy and really angles my lashes for a cat eye look.

  18. Chanelle (C.M.)

    I’m in America (Kansas) and I most recently tried to Maybelline Color Tattoos! I was lucky enough to get the limited edition fall neutral shades for nearly free at CVS a month or so back. I LOVE them and have been wearing them nearly every time I wear makeup!

    I tried Revlon lipstick colour Burst 080 strawberry shortcake its so lovely , Moisturized and great for daily look .

    Hi Mary, I’m from Canada but I recently took a trip to NYC an bought the Milani one coat glitter in Sliver Dazzle. It took two coats but the glitter effect was amazingly beautiful. I would look to win this giveaway and try some more of their amazing products.

  21. lawren

    I recently tried this mineral veil that I had won from a giveaway from D&E Handmade Cosmetics and it’s wonderful! It’s light enough for my skin tone and it sets my BB cream well.

    I am from Canada :3 And this giveaway looks fantastic! I’ve never tried anything by Milani before.

  22. Heather

    I am a nail polish addict, but i’m going to tell you about some make-up i recently tried. I’m now using Bare Mineral loose powder foundation, it is amazing! I wish i would have tried it sooner, it does not cause me any break outs at all, plus makes my face look air-brushed. Love it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in the US.

  23. Jennifer

    Hi Mary! I’m from Canada (like you!), Quรฉbec (not like you ๐Ÿ™ ) and here, we don’t have much Milani products. ๐Ÿ™ They are only sold at Maxi (which is like the sister company of Loblaws) and they don’t even have the Liquif’Eye eyeliner!!! ๐Ÿ™ Actually, they don’t have any of the new collection that I see all over the blogosphere. T-T

    The latest beauty product that I’ve tried is the Maybelline felt-tip eyeliner. I think it’s called something Stiletto… I had to pratice quite some time before getting the hang on it and even then, I often mess up my “cat-eye”. Lol! I’m a little bit disappointed because I wish the liner would be blacker. It fades a bit during the day and turns kinda grey-ish/brown-ish.

    Anyway, thank you so much for this giveaway and good luck to all your readers! ๐Ÿ˜€

    A beauty product I tried recently was castor oil, and I think it works wonderful when u have a stressed skin.
    I also tried l’oreal infallible eyeliner, i’m not that satisfied yet, i think the pencil is hard, but maybe after using it awhile it will be got smoother.
    and the color pay off and how long it stays it is not what it claims

  25. Erica

    Hey Mary! I’m in Canada, we’re basically neighbours I think ๐Ÿ˜‰
    A couple of weeks ago my youngest sister went shopping and went to Bath and Body Works (without me, shame on her!) and she got the new Cashmere Glow spray and lotion. She let me try the lotion (I LOVE their lotions) and O.M.G. This is a fragrance everyone should definitely try! I couldn’t stop smelling my hands ๐Ÿ˜‰ She said she would sell me a bottle of her spray, but I have enough in my stash that I told her no thanks (maybe I’ll get a bottle for Christmas!) but I would definitely buy it for myself (over and over and over again) ๐Ÿ˜€
    Thanks for doing this giveaway!
    P.S. – where can you buy Miliani polishes? I have been wanting to try their white, but because I’m in the “stix” I don’t have access to it, and my closest Sally’s is about an hour away.

    Hi there, I’m in the US ๐Ÿ™‚ . Something new I’ve tried lately (I think its beauty related) is these cans of hair color I bought at rite aid in the Halloween section of course. I bought it to use on my sons hair as he got a horrific haircut from a ditz at the salon I was going to. To make a long story short, we are spiking his hair in a Moha wk atm and blasting it with the colors to make it look better. They work really well, I was surprised. I even went back and bought all the other colors they had.

  28. Suzie

    I’m also not a makeup wearer due to my sensitive skin, so nail polish it is. I’m currently wearing Essie Going Incognito which is incredible (I love green polish). And I just bought OPI Mermaid’s Tears which has been discontinued and a bit hard to find.
    I’m from North Borneo, Malaysia.

  29. Stephanie

    Hi Mary! This is such a great giveaway! What a wonderful opportunity to have both giveaways going on at the same time. You really are too generous!
    I recently tried Maybelline Illegal length Mascara and really loved it! This past summer when I was lighting the BBQ it blew up in my face and signed half the length of my eyelashes off. So I was looking for something that would give me my old length back. This worked great and once they had grown back in, I can now have extreme lashes when I want!

    I’m from Canada as well ๐Ÿ™‚ And follow on all the various platforms!

    Hey Mary!
    Cool giveaway, thanks for having it! Everything you picked out looks really nice ๐Ÿ™‚
    Humm other than nail polish, I haven’t tried out any new mu items. I like to stick to what I love, which is beige/taupe-y es shadows, grey/black/brown eyeliner and mascara. SOO I will tell you about my most-est favourite-est (hee hee) mu product in the whole world: MAC Fluid Line in Black Track… Have you tried it yet? I love how you have complete control of the product. I use it on my upper lashes, and water lines (upper and lower)… but not all at once. I never used to wear black liner bc I found it to be very harsh looking next to my pale skin/eyes… but with BT I can make the liner SUPER thin, and its perfect! I highly recommend it to everyone. I am not one of those girls who are perfect at applying MU, BUT I have gotten compliments on my liner when I first started using BT.
    Thanks again for letting me enter your give-aways!

    Hi! I’m in the U.S. I love all the product you chose. The only thing from Milani that I have tried was a lipstick that was my absolute fav, and then it got discontinued ๐Ÿ™ Recently I’m loving the Orly Flash Glam FX nail polishes, especially Sashy My Way. I didn’t think I would like it, because I usually stay away from gold, but I don’t know it just looks awesome over any color I have tried.

  33. Sarah

    Hey there! I’ve always been on the search for a mascara I really like and get on with, especially as I just can’t seem to get the hang of false lashes! (My eyesight in my right eye is awful so I struggle to do anything if I have to close my left eye!) I recently bought “They’re real!” mascara by Benefit and I love it! Easy to apply and my eyelashes look really long, and lifted and separated. The first night I wore it a guy friend even asked me if I was wearing false eyelashes.

    I’m in the UK. Thanks for the giveaway.

  34. Grace

    Cool giveaway! I’m in Australia, and I’ve bought a couple of Milani products of Cherry Culture and Beauty Joint. I’ve recently tried essence’s clear brow and lash gel and it’s pretty good, it holds my brows in place fairly well. It’s not the strongest brow gel I’ve tried, but it’s the cheapest, which is what you want for a product you use every day!

  35. Susana B.

    Reader from Spain here. What a great giveaway! I love Milani polishes, I’ve tried a few and they’re fantastic.
    A product I’ve recently tried is the Illamasqua Cream Blush (a shade called Betray). I had tried cream blushes years ago and I found them impractical, sticky, greasy, and in general hard to use. But this is completely different: it blends easily, gives a very natural glow, and looks better on my dry skin than traditional powder blushes. Now I’m thinking of getting one or two more for Christmas…

  36. Debi

    Hi, Mary!
    Sweden follows you as well. ๐Ÿ™‚ Or at least, I know two girls here who do.
    My most recent new item –

    H&M nail polish remover in a pump bottle. When Tracy and I went shopping in Uppsala, we picked up the pump bottles. Wow – what a disappointing remover.
    The bottles work great. Put the cotton ball or pad on top and pump a few times and the remover is ready to go – but this formula is quite weak and couldn’t do a cleaning job on 2 layers of polish plus a topcoat. So, we both ended up dumping it and filling the fabulous pump bottle with better brands.

    Everything else I’ve been doing lately is all old stuff. ๐Ÿ™
    I need to go shopping. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for two-in-a-row giveaways that are good internationally, and congratulations on the increased readership here!

  37. Melissa

    Hi Mary,
    I’m from the US. I love all the iteams that you picked out, great job. :~) I have 2 new iteams that I like. The 1st is Neutrogena body lotion. I only use this for my face. It’s light, smell is not bad and it’s not too strong. I use less than a dime size and it covers my face really well and it absorbs fast and is light and not greasy feeling. The 2nd is Nivea Soft Face/body/hands. I only use this for my hands. It’s a littler heavier than the Neutrogena. I use it right before going to bed and when I get up in the morning my hands are nice and soft. My cuticles are nice and soft as well. It absorbs a little slower than the Neutrogena but works great. Great Job as always. Have a great week. :~)

    Hi hi, great giveaway. One thing I tried recently is the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil. OMG I love it love it (or maybe it’s just the colour i love)
    It goes on smooth and last basically all day.

    Anyway I’m from Trinidad and Tobago

  40. Kelsey

    Hey Mary!
    I recently tried Julep polish – i signed up to be a maven with their $0.01 first box.. and I was actually somewhat impressed. I got pedi creme which is kind of neat, kind of greasy though, so i completely understand why they say to use it before bed.. i was sliding around my tile floors :-\ the polish i got was a brown-y purple and then i got the cantaloupe colored one. the formula wasn’t too bad.. but the brush on the darker one was kind of… messy? like it looked like it had a bad hair day.

    Anyway, I’m in the US and your giveaways rock!

  41. Alison

    I recently tried Revlon Colorstay foundation. (Finally- I know I am late to the party on this!) Love the coverage, and it really does last all day, even on my oily skin. The only downside is that it’s so hard to remove! I have to use an oil-based cleanser AND my Clarisonic!

    I’m in the US.

  42. Louise

    Hi, thank you for this great giveaway!

    I’ve recently tried the nail polish ‘Cute as Button’ (Essie) and i loved it, it’s a beautiful pink with hints of purple, it’s gorgeous.
    I’m from Belgium.
    Have a nice day.

  43. Lisa C.

    Hi! I’m in the US. I recently tried Urban Decay’s Naked Skin foundation. It looked nice on, but after about 2 hours, I was getting pretty oily. Not sure if I’ll purchase a full size. GREAT giveaway, BTW!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Randi

    Hi Mary,
    I’m in Belgium. I recently tried OPI “The Living Daylights” from the Skyfall Collection. It’s a beautiful polish full of gold, silver, blue and pinkish hexagon glitter. I’ve received lots of complements for it but it was horible to remove… D:

    Hi Mary,

    I’m from Canada, like you. Wonderful idea for a give-away! Thanks so much for doing this.

    I’ve been looking for a make-up remover lately that wouldn’t bother my sensitive skin or be so oily I’d need cleanser to cleanse the make-up remover. I’ve been trying Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover ( and I have to say that it’s the best I’ve ever used. No oily residue and nothing to set off my sensitivities.

    I’ve also been using Quo Total Perfection Face Primer under my tinted moisturizer and I don’t think I’ve ever had such a smooth look before. Love it!

  46. Kayla

    Hi Mary!

    I’m writing from the US. I just discovered my favorite mascara not too long ago–L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara. It’s great for volume and length, plus a little goes a long way! I also just tried a Milani blush in Dolce Pink–such a nice pink with shimmer!

  47. Mary P

    Hi Mary! I’m not big on makeup but I love body lotions/scrubs/wash. I tried Suave Candy Apple Body Wash recently….Yummy!! I love that it is so inexpensive yet works just like the high end brands.

    I’m in the US!

  48. Candice

    I don’t really try new beauty products that often, I’m pretty faithful to what works. But I did have a mascara gifted to me that I recently tried, Maybelline Falsies Volume Express. Now, since I’ve used Maybelline Great Lash for years and years, I had a bit of difficulty with the Falsies brush. But it would have been an okay adjustment if the formula was not waterproof. YUCK. Hate the effort it takes to remove that, so I have relegated it to ‘occasions where I might cry’ and have gone back to Great Lash. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in Canada, whoo-hoo!

    Thanks for the chance to win, and the care you took in choosing the products. LOVE LOVE LOVE the products you chose! I’ve been tempted to buy “Totally Cool” for awhile, so it would be so fun if I won!

    Hi! The most recent purchase for me was Biotherm’s fragrance “L’eau de paradis”. It’s refreshing and the colour of the liquid is pink! I know, I know, not a good reason to get it, but it’s pretty and the scent is really nice and on the sweeter side. Plus, I got it at a warehouse sale so it was cheap too!

    Thanks for this giveaway. I’m from Canada! yay!!!

    I’m in the USA, and I recently picked up Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara and I’m not exactly sure how I feel about it! I like that my lashes don’t end up so clumped together and that they do feel softer than other mascaras, but I was hoping for….more? I don’t hate it by any means and I don’t regret buying it, I’m just not in love with it as most people!

    Thanks for yet another awesome giveaway!!

  51. Kelsie Rogers

    I’ve been using OPI Original Nail Envy for a couple of months now and finally seeing results! It’s the first basecoat I have found out of MANY that is making my nails stronger and healthier. I tried to avoid using it because of the cost, but it’s just one of those products that works!

    Love the giveaway! I’m from Canada ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am a fellow Canadian who unfortunately does NOT buy a lot of makeup… honestly, the last ‘beauty product’ I bought was Lemony Flutter for my cuticles. (which I LOVE); I am so inept when it comes to makeup (this loot would be a treat for me ๐Ÿ˜€ ).

    You picked some lovely prizes, thank you for this opportunity.

    Hi Mary,
    I recently tried a few Leighton Denny’s that have been waiting in my stash to be tried for a while now, my favourites were – Stormy Weather (Core Range), Starlet (Dramatic Collection), Jailbird (Criminal Collection) and Big Bang (Atmospheric Collection). Also starting to collect A England’s (amazing!) and Illamasqua’s.

    Something new I’ve tried are La Fresh nail polish remover pads… they smell great, are alcohol-free, and one tiny pad gets rid of 10 nails (finger or toe)! They’re a welcome replacement for the regular acetone removers I’ve used.

    I recently tried out “Just Spotted the Lizard.” I liked it, but I was hoping for a little bit of a stronger duochrome. After a couple of days I really liked it though.

    When I was in southern France this summer, my (girl) friend had a crazy glitter-obsession. She ended up pullong me along for the ride and we had the weirdest “Edward-jokes” – none of us are “twihards” (I believe that’s the name for Twilight fans? :p), but we had a shitload of fun with it.
    I ended up buying a glittering dry oil, I think the brand is called Monoรฏ, otherwise it’s lovea. It’s not quite clear to me – yay for French, haha.
    It contains no parabens and I love putting a bit of it on my shoulder-chest-neck area if I’m going out. I think it’s a nice little detail since I don’t usually wear heavy make-up ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ps. Denmark all the way, baby! 8D

    I recently tried smashbox camera ready BB cream. This “beauty balm” cream is a 5-in-1 product that is similar to a tinted moisturizer. I am not a big fan of foundation so I was drawn to this product for sheer coverage. This product is also has a SPF of 35 which helps to protect my skin. I have oily skin and although this product claims to help with controlling oily skin, I found that I needed to powder my skin within a couple of hours of using this product. I have noticed some other BB’s on the market and wonder how they compare with Smashbox? I am now using this product on a daily basis along with a bronzed to help give my face a warm and polished look. I would definitely recommend this product.

  62. maddy

    Great giveaway Mary! Great choice in products too! I don’t know if you would consider this a beauty product, but I did try using acrylic paint for nail art and I found out it’s so much easier than using nail polish because it’s more opaque. Also, I did try the One ‘n’ Only Argan Oil you reviewed earlier this week. It works amazing. Where do you buy Milani products in Canada. By the way, I live in Canada too.

  63. Shelby

    I’m from the US and I love your blog!
    Maybe it’s not really a “beauty” product, but I recently tried Elmer’s glue as a peel-off basecoat for glitter bomb polishes–it totally works!! I change my polish just about everyday so not sure how long it lasts, but it did last through several hand washings and some light dishwashing. I will no longer fear glitter removal ๐Ÿ™‚

  64. Heidi

    Hi Mary, this is a fantastic giveaway, I have recently fallen in love with Milani cosmetics. My two favorite new things I have tried were the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow and the Maybelline Color Tattoo. I love them both so much that the one of each that I started with (Glistening Garnet Infallible and Tough as Taupe Color Tattoo) grew to about 6 of each within 2 weeks! Thanks for a great contest!

    What a great giveaway! I am from Canada (Montreal represent!) and I just recently tried Illamasqua Noble because of your beautiful swatches. At first I thought it was a dupe for Zoya Robyn, but in the sun the colour really comes alive, it’s so vibrant and saturated! Gorgeous.

  67. Margo

    I’m in Canada – recently, for me, it’s been all about the eye primers. I can’t believe how much longer my eyeshadow stays and how good it looks when I use a dab of primer as opposed to without. Currently my fave is Starlooks primer.

    Hi there,

    I recently tried Rouge in Love lipstick by Lancome! I was pleasantly suprised that this long wear lip pigment didn’t dry out my lips like so many other long wear lip colors do! The pigment lasts for up to 6 hours, and while it goes on shiny becomes matte rather quickly. The matte finish is easily rejuvinated by lip blam.

    Love your blog!

    I just bought my first bottle of Pomegranate nail polish (in Curator) and I’m in LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE! The formula was fantastic. It’s making me want more!

  75. Natalie

    I bought the Tarte Carried Away set. I love all of the shadow colors that came in it; the formula on most of them is pretty great, although it’s a pit thin/patchy on some and those are harder to build up consistent coverage.

  76. Lauren

    Hey Mary,
    Awesome giveaway! Love your new header too – super cute!!

    I bought two of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters a few months ago when they first came out. I wasn’t a fan, but I’ve given them a second shot in the last couple of weeks and now I’m in love! So weird how that happens. I think it could have been a seasonal thing.Here in Australia we were in Winter and now in Spring so I think perhaps they weren’t quite moisturising enough for winter but are good now it’s a bit warmer? Or I just changed my mind! haha

    Hi Mary, thanks for this competition!
    I recently tried Napoleon Perdis’ Long Black mascara. The definition and curl it gives my lashes is great, but the smudging is horrific! The hunt for the perfect mascara continues. Well okay, I’ve found my perfect mascara (YSL Faux Cils), but it’s so expensive and I get through it so fast (I’ve had 3 or 4 tubes to date) that I’m always looking for lower priced alternatives!

  81. Melissa Cortes

    One product I just tried was Sinful Colors Quick Dry. I wanted something easier to use than Seche Vite. I put it over two coats of Wet n Wild 2% Milk and two coats of Bonita Bubble Gum Sparks ( a jelly sandwich! ). The texture of Quick Dry is actually more like an oil than a gloss. I found the thin, rigid brush hard to work with ( it sticks on your polish). It did cut the dry time of the top coat, but maybe because I didn’t wait at all between layers of polish at the end the manicure ended up a mess. SCQD is three free, does NOT have Seche’s chemical smell. I’d have to try it again over less coats of polish to see if I can recommend it.

    A beauty product I tried recently was an body scrub from BBW that I got for a good price during the Semi-Annual Sale. The scent was Into the Wild. I liked the scent, and the scrub was effective, but also rather harsh on my skin. I’ve kept it around and use it VERY occasionally–it does the job well but I don’t want to irritate my skin by using it too often. Oh, and I’m in the USA ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m sure I’m well behind pretty much everyone who reads your blog, but I finally tried Seche Vite. I bought the top coat and base coat and they are amazing! I just recently had to start doing my own nails so I never looked into it. I would go to the spa every two weeks and sit back lol. Now I actually have fun doing them! I have no patience when it comes to letting my nails dry, but this stuff helps speed up the process big time.

  89. Lacquer-Loving Lawyer

    Thank you for this giveaway! I am in the U.S., in South Florida.

    I have tried a few beauty products lately. I tried the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I like it a lot, but I am over 40, and I wish they had included more matte shadows because shimmer shadows are not as flattering at my age. I also recently tried Sally Hansen’s cuticle remover & balm, the one with the green and white swirls, and I don’t like it because it leaves a residue on my cuticles that looks like gray gunk, and I have to use an orange stick while scrubbing to get the gunk off. Also recently tried Badger Balm, and it’s good, but it’s not as good as my cuticle oil or as petroleum jelly at moisturizing. Oh, and I tried Monistat anti-chafing gel as a primer and love it!

    I recently tried essie bikini so teeny. I love the colour and how it applied, was a little disappointed that the shimmer didn’t show up as well on the nails though.

The little brush is easy to handle, the colour is a bright gold and it lasts a lot. It lasted all the day when I wore it last time (on sunday) and without damages. I liked also a lipgloss from Models Own which became my favourite lipgloss: Madame Rose lipgloss, which is a coral pink lipgloss, nice colour and wonderful taste ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for this giveaway!!

    The last thing I bought were 6 Color Club polishes and their top coat. I wore Nomadic in Nude for the last week and loved it. It applied beautifully for such a pale color (only 2 coats needed) and showed only minor tipwear after 5 days. Yesterdays heavy garden work killed it, however. I just changed it for Earthy Angel and hope it holds up just as well.
    BTW: I’m from Germany

  101. Kenora Sorgenfrie

    I’m in Canada, and the latest beauty product I’ve tried is one I just picked up last night. I have increasingly sensitive skin on my face and have mild rosacea, so my beauty products are needing some changes. I needed a moisturizer, and so I bit the bullet and picked up Clinique’s redness solution line’s moisturizer. It felt nice when I put it on this morning and it’s got a faint green tint to it (to help with redness, I’m thinking). The stuff was expensive, so I hope it works well for me.

    I just found your blog, and I’m thrilled to see another Canadian voice! I keep drooling over all the pretty things that come out in the US that never seem to make it to Canada, and it gets annoying after a while. I’m sure you understand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi, Mary! I’m in the US. I recently tried out some of the Layla holos. OMG, they are super gorgeous! They are really, really finicky though. It breaks my heart that I’m going to have to play with them some more to get the application right. ;-D

  104. Lynsey Provost

    hi Mary – thanks so much for this great opportunity and contest. My name is Lynsey and I am from Vermont, USA.

    A product that I have tried recently is Duri Rejuvacote. My nails are very fragile and I am in need of a good base coat so I always am on the lookout for something that protects my nails. Rejuvacote is a great product. I was thrown off at first by it because it has a pink tint to it but it didn’t even show up when I put it on my nails. The only down fall so far with the Rejuvacote is that it chips if i put too many coats of it on – other then that it is great. Another product that I have been recently using is the Burts Bee’s lemon balm for nails. That stuff is great and really seems to condition my nails. It smells so nice and makes my cuticles easier to deal with. Hope all is well with you. Have a great day! -Lynsey

  105. Nancy

    Canadian here! Recently got Butter London’s Henley Regatta. Beautiful sparkly blue but it chipped after a few days. Not sure if it was because I layered on so many layers or what so I’m a bit disappointed. It felt kind of gloopy too. Luckily it was free because I’m not ready to spend 18$ on something that chipped so fast…

  106. Beth

    Hi Mary, I’m in the U.S. I tried the Fresh Sugar lip treatment recently (Sephora’s free birthday gift) and it is really nice! Feels light but still very moisturizing. I’m not sure if I can justify the price to buy a full size once this runs out though…it’s over $20. ๐Ÿ™

    I rarely wear makeup. And I can only do the basics with that I have. BUT for some reason if you want makeup to make you look dead. I’m the girl. Scars, gashes, bullet wounds…I can do it. Anyways the last make up I tried was this Special FX scar putty and generic cream makeup that I think I got from Value Village for a giant gash I did on my arm. While it looked amazing the putty made my arm feel itchy while I was wearing it. When I took it off my arm was fine. I’ll probably use up the rest of the putty I have by them but try and find something different next time. Also the putty is SUPER messy. I have to put it in the fridge before I use it and even then it’s still a pain. And you have to apply it quickly because if you don’t it becomes an unmanageable mess. Oh and I’m in Canada ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’mlateI’mlateI’mlateI’mlate! I left this tab open for too long, because I was wondering what I could say about a recent beauty product I’ve used… 8| I almost missed the deadline!

    Lately I’ve been working at a cafe, sometimes as a cook and sometimes as a barista, and it’s like 60 hours a week so I haven’t had much time for new beauty products in the recent past. One thing I did try was not exactly a *beauty* product, but it was a new product- PVC glue as a base coat for glitter manis. It saves the hassle of using the tinfoil method or scrubbing for hours to remove glitter! Instead you peel it right off. The wear isn’t as long as it would be with a regular base coat, but it does stay on for a few days if you’re careful. It didn’t last a single shift at the cafe, but I use my hands pretty hard in this job. I imagine once I get back to a desk job (and a normal number of hours!) I’ll be able to make it last a full run.

    I’m from Israel. Cheers!

    I recently tried this super sparkly glitter-bomb lipgloss I got from the dollar store. It was terrible, but it smelled like my childhood so I wore it anyways!

    I’m from the UK here – the last beauty product I tried was the OPI DS series colour ‘reserve’. I noticed when using it that it was a lot nicer coat than the usual OPI range, and the diamond sparkle made it ever so nice! I felt as though I was spoiling my nails – I stopped biting them this year, after biting nearly all my life! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi there,

    The last beauty product I tried was the MAC x Marilyn Lipstick in Love Goddess. I’m absolutely in love with the whole collection and I wore the lipstick today for Halloween. I love Marilyn Monroe and MAC products. Thanks for the giveaway!
