January 2011 Giveaway: Add Some Color To Your Life

January has flown by, but before February comes through, I'd like to give my fabulous readers a chance to win some free products!

This year (well... every year...), I encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and try something new.
For a lot of people, one way of stepping out and experimenting is with color. 
So, here are 3 new products that will add some color and sparkle to your life!

All you have to do is become a subscriber (it's really easy! just click on the FOLLOW box at the right!) and answer 1 question! (Yes, this time, you have to comment, because I want to hear from you!)
* What are your 3 must-have beauty products? *
It can be anything beauty related: makeup, hair, skin, etc. 

If you subscribe and comment to this post by 11:59 pm  PST on 2/2/11 , you could win:

Sephora Colorful Duo Eyeshadow in Tropical Blue
What it is: A duet of highly pigmented, long-lasting, exclusive shadows that reinvent color intensity.
What it does: This perfectly matched pair features an intense color and a luminous color in coordinating hues. Create impeccably shaded eyes with this doubly gorgeous color essential.
What it is formulated WITHOUT: Parabens
What else you need to know: This exclusive formulation contains HIBOOST complex, designed to amplify color performance.
(Retail Price: $16)

You can use this color separately and/or together on the top lid.
If it's too much color for you, use a little color on the outer corners of your lower lash line.
You can also add the blue on the outer corner and the green in the middle of the lower lash line (or vice versa!). 
These are two of my favorite colors to use on the eyes, so play and have fun!

Senna Sheer Face Color: Tri-Blush
Three harmonizing shades of sheer peachie/pink blush blend beautifully for a flushed from within glow. The soft as silk texture is buildable and lasts all day.
Size: 0.12 oz / 3.4 g
(Retail Price: $10.00)

I like using blushes that have a mix of colors.  This is a small palette that you can just swipe across for a natural looking glow. 


Light-reflecting shimmer layered under a high-gloss finish gives you 4x more noticeable shine.
Plus, our breakthrough applicator, the ShineSculpt,™ hugs the curves of your lips for a sculpted shimmer behind the shine.
(Retail Price: $7-8)
This is a nice, light shimmery gloss that goes on smoothly and laves a nice, light gloss on the lips.  This is for those of you that are really not comfortable with color (we'll get you there!) or hardly wear any makeup at all. 

So, I hope you
