A few months ago, I took a moment to thank my readers for being such a supportive, awesome bunch. As you know, I make it my mandate to respond to every single comment that is left on my site. Sometimes you’ll catch me right away; other times, it may take a day or two for me to find a moment to circle back. (And lately, I’ve been catching up on comments a week late – I’m so sorry! But it’s been a crazy season.)
Regardless, I always love to reply to friends who have taken a moment to share their feedback, experiences, tips and thoughts with me. Back in May, I promised y’all that I would be back later in the year. And here I am! This time, I’ve teamed up with Marcelle, Canadian women’s trustworthy beauty partner for 80 years. Marcelle is the cosmetics and skin care brand that offers every woman high quality, effective and affordable products. Hypoallergenic and perfume-free; women of all ages believe in Marcelle products.
Thank you Tricha, Judy C, nicolthepickle, Flora M, Chandra, Heidi C, Darlene Schuller and Florence C!
I’d love to send you each a special little thank you gift; Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara, the 2013 Elle Canada Grand Prix Beauty Award winner for “Best Mascara Under $20”, as well as a Marcelle Rouge Xpression Lipstick.
Xtension Plus Mascara
Give your lashes extra length and curl with the Xtension Plus Mascara. The formula and brush curl, define and separate lashes while minimizing clumps. An innovative and specifically designed soft polymer brush that offers a side with a row of longer bristles. This extra-long row of bristles reaches even the shortest lashes and stretches them from root to tip to reach their maximum lengthening potential for a lash-extension look without adding extensions. The tapered brush tip is perfect to achieve definition and get to those hard to reach lashes. Removes easily with any Marcelle eye make-up remover.
Rouge Xpression Lipstick
The twelve new Rouge Xpression Lipstick hues, all of them abundantly pigmented, give the pout intense coloration and luminous cream finish. The avocado oil, rich in Omega-6, offers excellent healing qualities and prevents chapped lips. Its phytosterols reinforce the lipidic barrier and contribute to restore hydration in the lips, keeping them supple and soft – a real delight! Its velvety and creamy formula, not sticky at all, procures absolute comfort in lavish, opaque hues. Vitamins C and E enrich this lipstick with their antioxidant properties while Maxi-Lip, an oligopeptide complex, delivers a plumping effect.
And, in the spirit of the holidays, I’ve teamed up with Marcelle for a special giveaway for all my readers!
FIFTEEN (yes, 15!) readers will win TWO Marcelle gift bundles pictured above; one for you, and one for you to #MarcellePayitForward this holiday season. Gift the second bundle to a teacher, a sister, a friend… it’s up to you! The total value for each gift bag is $24.45. (more…)
