Everyone’s a winner baby, that’s the truth, yes, the truth

Today I get home and this is waiting for me (all pics are clickable, the ones with a really small watermark open up pretty big):

I open it and find:

  • Wrinkle Decrease Collagen Filler

  • Colour Minerals Eyeshadow in shade 3

  • Telescopic Explosion mascara

  • Glam Bronze (blusher and bronzer in one)

  • Visible Lift Foundation in Porcelain

  • Age Perfect Intensive Reinforcing Serum

  • Revitalift Face Contours and Neck Face Cream

  • Infallible Longwear Lip Duo Compact

  • Color Riche in Sweet Tea (I think this is the Lip Gelee)

I didn't even remember entering this competition, the last time I went on the website was a good few months ago to check some hair colour for my mum! I've been on speed since finding this box. There was a little note which said if you have any questions to ring the agency which I plan on doing tomorrow as I'd like to test the foundation but in a shade which is closer to my skin colour, is that a rude thing to do? I've sent L'oreal a gushing email about how happy they've made me and that I plan to review the products on my blog, not so that they send me more free stuff but just because I feel that's kinda the least I can after getting so much for free. Rest assured that I will provide you with honest reviews.


  1. Well done! I don't think it's rude to ask for another foundation shade. No fun in winning stuff you can't use.

    Enjoy your new goodies xx

  2. Thanks :)

    I was mega chuffed when I got the parcel and could do nothing but stare at my new goodies all evening. Hopefully I should have my new foundation and lipstick by the end of next week


  3. Congrats! Definitely ask for another foundation shade! L'oreal PR are really nice (I know from winning a comp which included a prize from them last year - not blogging)

  4. Thanks :)

    I rang the marketing company who are "administering" the giveaway this morning and the lovely lady said that they cannot send a different shade of foundation because they were only supplied with one shade to give away but because it doesn't match my skin, I will be getting two lipsticks. How great is that?!

    I'm testing out the mascara today but no review because I want to change up some of the stuff on this blog
