Things You Love Week: Contest Day 1

When it comes to things I love, contests are near the top! All this week EA will be giving away some fabulous prizes tailored around the things I love. Kicking things off is Sephora who kindly furnished a $100 gift card for one lucky EA reader. Wondering what I’d use it on? Below are some of my personal favorites from the store.

I already own NARS’ matte lipstick ($25) in two colors: Bangkok, a medium pink; and Zambeze, a deep plum. I’m not gonna lie, I have two more colors in my sights. This lipstick lasts all day without drying out my lips or bleeding onto glassware and the like. There are colors for every skintone and hues ranging from subtle to practically shouting.

I love Fresh products, and it’s great to see Sephora carrying them. I’ve convinced almost everyone at my job to invest in the Sugar Treatment Duo ($23) during this particularly harsh winter. The difference between this stuff and regular chapstick is that it not only heals your lips, it protects and enriches them. Plus it’s free of the chemicals you find in most lip treatments. Did I mention it tastes really good too?

One of my favorite nite-on-the-town perfumes is Miss Dior Cherie ($60-$98). A hint of tangerine really plays up the scent of this perfume and draws curious noses in for a closer take. My current beau loves this stuff and so do I. This scent is always a hit for me.

If you missed Urban Decay’s amazing Naked Palette ($48) the first time around, Sephora is now carrying a second version. The palette itself is the same but the accessories have changed up a bit for this re-release.

Initially when I got this palette I worried the shadows would be too intense. But after playing around with the earthy hues I’ve found they’re the perfect finishing touch for my winter wardrobe. They transition well from day to night too. For a strong eye this palette wins hands-down.

Get those typing fingers ready — it’s time for a contest! Effortless Anthropologie is giving away one $100 Sephora Gift Card. Due to Sephora’s shipping restrictions, this contest is open to USA/Canada residents only. (Other contests this week will be open to worldwide entries.)
