kat-von-d-eyeshadow-competition

Happy Halloween y’all ūüėÄ

Anyone else pretty much oblivious to how the heck that came around so fast? To think it’s November tomorrow (almost) makes me want to crawl under the bed for fear of waking up to shop shelves filled with Frozen paraphernalia whilst blasting out cheesy 80’s festive tunes *arrrgh* HOWEVER, without dwelling too much on future events lets focus on today shall we ūüėČ Which brings me to my next point chums… it’s the LAST chance to enter my Kat Von D ¬†INTERNATIONAL giveaway, where one lucky entrant will win themselves a gorgeous eye shadow palette of their choice. Sounds nifty, huh? Then if you haven’t done so already be sure to get your name down – if you’re not in you can’t win! Competition closes midnight tonight GMT.

Sitting comfy? Then feast your eyes on what you could win and how to enter! Goodluck…

“This eyeshadow palette is something special, y’all! Arranged with the perfect blend of neutral, warm and cool tones, it contains base, contour, highlight and define shades…just one look and you know this sh*t is insane!

Each matte powder is finely milled and highly pigmented for true payoff and awesome blendability! We dare you to find a shade that you don’t absolutely adore“

“Seize the night with Innerstellar’s twelve starry-eyed shades. Our signature color quad configuration gives you larger-sized base shades (so you don’t hit pan on the ones you use the most), plus a dazzling constellation of pop colors in shimmer and matte finishes! Each base shade is arranged above three accent shades, creating three color quads in this one palette!“

*Excerpt from KVD website*

Gooood Morning My little Lucky Charms…

And¬†that is INDEED what I’m tucking into this very minute! Do any of you remember the little cereal treat? For me it was almost a dietary staple¬†of growing up in the 90’s. Cereal was never really my thing, however once I had a bowl of these tasty little treasures I was well & truly hooked. Of course I’m 33 now & there’s very little excuse for my eagerness to consume a bowl (or two) yet¬†I still manage to enjoy it… Sunday morning, cartoons, bowl of Lucky Charms. What a way to start the day ūüėČ

However I’m sure you’re not here to¬†read¬†me waffling on about nostalgic brekkie cereal, right? Didn’t think so *rolls eyes* So for those of you who fancy something a little more interesting to mull over whilst sipping on your Sunday morning brew, here’s a quick recap of what’s been happening on Confetti & Curves this week…

Ps: A maaahoosive¬†hello & warm welcome to all the lovely new Blog¬†followers & YouTube subs this week, thanks so much for stopping by¬†‚̧

A Box Full Of Beauty Goodies…

Hello Mr Postman

Hey Beauty Buddies…

It‚Äôs Frrrriiiiiiday *dramatic air punch* Yes, the weekend is upon us & the sun is shining ‚Äď what more could we ask for?! Okay maybe a glass or two of something strong and fizzy but that‚Äôll come later in the evening ūüėČ ¬†I‚Äôm in such a cheery mood as not only is it two whole glorious days of no alarm clock bleating in my ear at an ungodly hour of the morning, but I can finally muster up a bit of free time to sample some gorgeous goodies that arrived on my doorstep a few days ago. My poor neighbours must be well accustomed to my regular screeches of excitement as I recently won an amazing giveaway from the lovely Anne over at Doves & Roses, however on Wednesday afternoon yet another burst of squeals ricocheted off the walls as my giveaway package arrived a little earlier than anticipated.

So wanna know what the postman brought? Here goes…

.

Chanel lipstick

 Chanel 444 Gabrielle

After excitedly tearing through the neatly wrapped individual little parcels, the first thing I clasped my mitts on was a delectable Chanel Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour in shade 444 Gabrielle. This rich ruby red is going to be the perfect companion for nights out or by simply just livening up a muted makeup menu by adding a touch of royal red. Isn’t it beeeeeeautiful?

.

Mini Chanel Makeup Purse

Chanel bag

This darling little mesh bag is perfect for discretely carrying my essential makeup must-haves on a daily basis. It’s the ideal size to pop into any purse.

.

Bourjois Cream Blush

Cream blush

Cream blushes are something I consistently adore wearing. For my pale and (almost) translucent skin tone they work a treat by adding a dewy healthy glow without looking harsh or unnatural. Considering I’m a huge fan of Bourjois I was literally hugging this teeny little compact that comes with its very own miniature mirror.

.

Catrice Eyeshadow Palette

Catrice Cosmetics

Catrice ROSE eyeshadow

Possibly one of the nicest range of blush toned shadows I‚Äôve seen. This Absolute Rose Eyeshadow palette by Catrice Cosmetics in ‚Äė010 Frankie Rose To Hollywood‚Äô is the perfect bend of soft shimmering pink tones. Considering these are the colours I regularly magnetise too (hence my undying love for the Naked 3 palette) I cannot WAIT to treat my eyes to a skimming of these sweet shades.

.

The Body Shop Lipgloss

The Body Shop Mango Lip Gloss

If you haven’t tasted this flavour already then by George you’re missing out. This has got to be one of the most taste bud tingling, sassily scented glosses I’ve ever tried. Considering I’ve always been a HUGE fan of the body shop I’m surprised I haven’t indulged in this flavour sooner, but wow oh wow am I glad I’m the proud owner…  it. is. aaaahmazing.

…

So there we have it guys, my fun box of giveaway goodies. A huge thank you to the lovely Anne for hosting such a super-duper giveaway, I really am chuffed to bits… not to mention a little woozy at the excitement of taking ownership of such a gorgeous array of products.

If you haven’t already checked out Doves & Roses yet then I suggest you take a virtual hike over asap. Anne’s blog is crammed full of product reviews and goodies to make even the most sophisticated of cosmetic consumer swoon!

Wishing y’all a fun filled weekend chums…
