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.

    Yes, I would LOVE to be pampered, but that’s not my family’s style, I’m afraid. So I think I’d just be happy if my family just told me, point blank, that they love me, and give me a big hug. That would mean so much to me.

    The negativity suffered by people in 2009, particularly in the second half of the year, was unpleasant to say the least. It would be pampering to enjoy change for the better, including positive attitudes and private sector job creation, in 2010.
