Hello dear ones!
Well, it is officially cold-weather season and I am LOVING it! In fact, I have been so in love with sleeping in, wrapped in my new electric blanket, that I have been in virtual hibernation mode when it comes to keeping up with my blogs. For this, you have my sincerest apologies. Fear not, for I am back and have some awesomeness in store for you to make amends for my cold-weather laziness. I realize this blog was supposed to be a winged liner tutorial – but due to my bootleg camera acting ratchet, I am substituting with a great review and a pretty sweet giveaway contest – deets on that will come a little later.
To get this PAR-TAY started, I want to tell you all about my hot new product find – “Swagger Cosmetics”. I found out about this amazing new line of cruelty free, 100% vegan makeup through another random Instagram search one night (I am seriously loving these IG product finds!). Now, don’t worry, I’m not a tree-hugger. Nor do I go around with a bucket of red paint, waiting to fling it at the next mink coat wearing diva as I scream “Fur is Murder!” For my anti-hybrid, gas guzzling, bacon lovers, I know you probably don’t give a hoot about anything vegan, and normally it’s not a huge deciding factor for me either when it comes to my cosmetic choices. That said, I’m certainly an animal lover and I can’t bear the thought of forcing a cute furry friend to test out harsh chemicals and hideous lip colors in order for it to make it to my face (YES I’m a hypocrite). So no matter where you fall in the animal friendly product spectrum, it is wonderful to know that the ridiculously high quality products that Blake K of “Swagger Cosmetics” offers are completely guilt free!
For my first foray into the Swagger world, I started with an order of a few pigments and a lip mattifying powder. The pigment colors were dope in their own right, but the names took it to a whole new level. The following is the list of names in no particular order: Swagger (had to get the mascot color), Young Rich & Flashy, Gold Digger, and Red Bone. Dope squared right!? Swagger is a great sparkly blue, Young Rich & Flashy is a translucent gold shimmer dust that is an excellent highlight, Gold Digger is an intense rich gold, and Red Bone is a deep sparkly maroon-ish/brownish red. While I realize that my descriptions are fantastic and not at all vague, I’ve also got you covered with a swatch pic.
I am so smitten with this product line and am confident that you divas will be too. I highly encourage you to run, not walk, over to swaggercosmetics.com and place an order – and just because I think you dear readers are so deserving of an extra perk, you can save yourself 10% on your order if you use the code: FACESBYBRIT before you check out.
Well, now on to the part you’ve likely skipped the rest of this article for (don’t do that, it’s rude) – it’s time for a GIVEAWAY!! I have already done a couple of giveaways on my Instagram account @faces_by_brit in the past, but I thought I would open it up to both my PQB blog readers as well as my Facebook followers because this giveaway is going to be my best one yet. Since the holidays are fast approaching and I want my followers to be able to be as glam as possible, I am offering several chances to win a prize. For one lucky grand prize winner, I will be offering 1 full size MAC pigment, 1 MAC lipstick, and 3 pairs of Red Cherry eyelashes. There will also be a 2nd place prize of a $10 Sephora gift card and 1 pair of Red Cherry eyelashes and a surprise 3rd place prize.
