For the past week, I’ve been talking your ear off (well, writing your eyes off) about my recent trip to New York Fashion Week…tales of interviewing Bobbi Brown, watching Oscar Blandi work his magic, hanging with hipster muse, Cory Kennedy, and generally living the glamorous life.
How rude of me! I know you want to hear the deets. But, damn…do I have to be so boastful about it?
Well, before you put me on blast for being such a braggart - check it. In between shows and hobnobbing with the movers and shakers, I’ve been working on something pretty fashtastic. So in honor of my little trip to the Big Apple, I’m hosting a giveaway inspired by the marriage of fashion and beauty!!!
One lucky broad will win a sampling of Urban Decay’s fabulous fall 2008 collection. She will receive:
Three Lipsticks (winner's choice)
From crimson red and exotic fuchsias, to cotton candy pink and shimmering nudes, these wearable, but unusual shades will enrapture beauty junkies everywhere. The creamy formula nourishes and protects lips with vitamins A, C, and E and is infused with a crème-caramel scent and flavor. And the lipstick tubes, made from weighty, purple metal, are pierced with a mini gunmetal dagger. The clear cap is decorated inside and out with two-toned purple flourishes. The effect is multidimensional, and incredibly luxe.
Two 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils (winner's choice)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are best-sellers year after year. And now, their long-wearing, cult-status formula is available in Lip Pencils! The waterproof pencils contain jojoba oil, vitamin E, and cottonseed oil to nourish the skin and provide a smooth application. making them the perfect complement to Urban Decay lipsticks, stains, and glosses.
One 24/7 Concealer Pencil (winner's choice)
Hide dark circles and blemishes with this creamy formula that dries matte and stays put. Full of vitamin E, 24/7 Concealer also contains a new ingredient called Microsponge—its empty spheres absorb excess oil preventing further breakouts and clogged pores.
One Grind House Pencil Sharpener
This premium quality, dual-chambered sharpener is the ultimate accoutrement to your beauty arsenal. Grind House is designed to work with the entire 24/7 family: the slim-line hole fits Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye and Lip Pencils, and the large hole fits thick-barreled 24/7 Concealer.
Two Matte Eyeshadows (winner's choice)
This fall, Urban Decay adds three new additions to their collection of Matte Eyeshadows—Electric (electric blue), Shakedown (medium brown), and Heist (neutral taupe). Pigment-rich with an ultra-soft, velvety texture, these shadows have intense color payoff and blend beautifully.
Two runners-up win one Lipstick, one 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil and one 24/7 Concealer Pencil.
And as an added, fashtastic bonus – the grand prize winner will receive the Coco Clutch, courtesy of Ananas Collection. This gorgeous zip clutch is adorned with a wood ring. It’s perfect as a clutch, makeup case or to organize in a larger bag!
