Win E.L.F Makeup Artist Starter Kit ($50)

CONTESTS | | December 16, 2009 at 8:27 pm


Congratulations Rondah!

I know what you are thinking, enough with stuff for the kiddos already. I think my brain has been so programmed for the past 4 years to put the kids first that I have neglected mommy pampering. Well, that is going to be rectified. Right here. Right now. What is the ultimate treat for a mom, with the assurance that you can’t give it to your kids? Don’t pretend you don’t know what I mean. How often did someone give you something good and you gave it to the kids? That is what I thought.

E.L.F is a company I love. I am not a crazy makeup person so I can’t splurge on makeup knowing it will sit on the shelf, well past the expiry date. The one thing about E.L.F I love the most is their affordability  to the average woman. Hey, every woman deserves the chance to beautify herself right? In fact a while ago I held an E.L.F make-up party and got some fabulous tips from a makeup artist on using makeup. Check it out to see if there is something you can learn.

What I really love about the company E.L.F is that that they simply get women. They do. They ran a recent contest about the face of E.L.F and these were not supermodels or even models but regular women like you or me. By making makeup within the price range of all women but still keeping it looking classy, instead of cheap, it allows women to look their best easily.


Now it is your turn. This E.L.F Makeup Artist Starter kit has everything to get you started.  What is in it? Well, now that you asked.. Are you ready? Here goes: Makeup Artist Brush Belt,Travel Mirror, Mechanical Eyelash Curler , Eyeliner & Shadow Stick black/smoke, Eyebrow Kit, Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara, Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter, Eye Primer & Liner Sealer, Lip Primer & Plumper, Lip Definer & Shaper, Translucent Matifying Powder, Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder, Concealer Pencil & Brush, Cases

Phew! Is that enough for you? I thought so. Even the cases are beautiful. E.L.F Makeup is always awesome but the fact that they provide the finest quality tools (brushes, mirrors, belts, cases etc) make the entire collection a wonderful one to start with or add on. This is really the ultimate in indulge yourself treat.

Want it?

Want to win  the E.L.F Makeup Artist Starter Kit (valued at $50) ? Tell me what pampering you would love in 2010? You may just win this to get you kick started in the new year.

    Pampering, what is that? :)

    I’d like a massage, even if it was only a 10 minute chair massage at Whole Foods. At this point, I’m not picky…just a few minutes to escape would be wonderful.

Would love to go to a really nice salon and be pampered, hair color perfect for me, maybe straightening (just moved to Texas and humidy is poufing my pretty curls to yuckiness – would love to be given a chi hair iron and dryer!

    I would love to have a spa day. I’ve never been to a spa or had any type of beauty pampering. I could use a massage for my back badly. That would be a perfect day, all about me for once.

    What I would really, really love and is the best pampering I could get would be if everyone went away for a few days and left me home alone. Just NOT having to take care of everybody else’s problems for a little while would be SUCH a luxury!

    Perfect day? I leave the 3 kids with my husband, call up my sister and we sit out on the porch, sipping drinks and gossip all day.
