LolaStarHearts First Birthday! + Giveaway!

lolastar hearts beauty blog birthday giveaway

Not only is today my lovely mum’s birthday, but today is LolaStar Hearts' first Birthday/Anniversary/Blogiversary – whatever you call it, today’s the day. 

I can’t tell you how crazy it feels to have had this little blog going for a year, and what a year it has been. I’ve met some amazing, gorgeous bloggers, been to some amazing events and set up my own blogging event, worked with brands that I’ve fallen in love with, and just had a complete blast.

There have obviously been bad times but I can hand-on-heart say that it’s been the most amazing experience and I can't wait for what my blogging future holds. I want to say a huge thank you to all of you who read and comment on my blog – it means so, so much to me and I’m so grateful.

Just before Christmas I reached 1000 followers, which is just insane! When I first started blogging I really didn’t see that happening, so again – a huge thank you!

So to celebrate two huge milestones for LolaStar Hearts I’m planning a little giveaway. One of you lucky folk will win a YSL Lipstick in a colour of your choice. My YSL Rouge Volupte Spicy Pink Lipstick is my absolute favourite of all time so if you don’t have one then you definitely need one in your lippy collection!

I’ll be buying the winner’s lipstick from John Lewis so please make sure you give me your first and second choices in case any are sold out!

CLOSED: International Giveaway: Illamasqua Beauty Box

<sappy stuff> When I first started blogging in January I never imagined that it would have brought me on such a journey. I’ve met so many lovely people, lots of them I’d now consider friends. Lots of amazing opportunities have also passed my way so it’s time for me to say a huge thank you. </sappy stuff>

Whenever I hold a giveaway I always think about what it is that I’d like to win, so this time it’s an Illamasqua Alter Ego Selection. It’s actually a mystery selection but I’m going to ruin the surprise so the winner knows that they’re getting – sorry!

Nail varnish in Collide | Liquid Metal in Electrum | Lipstick in Blaze
Powder Blusher in Create | Powder Eye Shadow in Never | Intense Lip Gloss in Twist

Entry is pretty standard via the rafflecopter widget. I’ve made following via GFC a manatory entry, but Wordpress bloggers can follow with their Twitter account (or GMail, if you have one).

[CLOSED] Summer Giveaway: Two MAC lipsticks

I don’t own any MAC lipsticks myself, but I’ll [finally] be purchasing mine when I buy the winners’ shades.

This giveaway is open internationally however; the winner will be responsible for any custom charges.

The rules:

♥ You must be following LolaStarHearts through GFC
♥ You must be aged 16 or over, or have parental permission to disclose your address
♥ All entries must be completed through the Rafflecopter form

Natural Radiance: Cucumber Collagen Mask Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

The lovely people at Natural Radiance kindly sent me some facemasks to try out last week. I was particularly excited because they specialise in Korean sheet masks and I’d never tried any before.

I received a Purederm cucumber collagen mask(*) with vitamin E, which “visibly moisturises the skin and restores skin tone after UV exposure”. Unfortunately I haven’t been in the sun, but working long days at a festival last week has taken its toll on my skin.

First impressions:
The packet says the liquid saturating the mask is 100% pulp. I was worried when I opened the mask as it seemed to be too liquid-y but it’s very thick and didn’t drip. I was hoping it would smell really fresh like cucumbers but there didn’t seem to be much scent to it at all.

The actual mask felt like baby wipe kind of material and was surprisingly thicker than I’d expected. It looked huge when I took it out of the packaging but I guess my face is bigger than I realised, as it seemed to fit with just a bit of overlap on the hairline.

I left it on for about 10 minutes more than the suggested 15minutes, until the edges started to dry. When I peeled it off my face felt a little sticky, but this disappeared within a few minutes once the residue was dry.

Probably the most unflattering mask I've ever tried! haha

Whilst I didn’t notice any visible difference in my skin, it feels a lot smoother and rehydrated. The boy even commented on how soft my face was. It was lovely and cooling, so definitely perfect for a quick fix once it gets a bit warmer, or generally if you’ve got dull, dry skin.

The only downside is that they make you look like a bit of a numpty. Excuse my miserable face in the pictures, it was a little awkward to smile!

Would I purchase?
Definitely. At just $0.88 each these are a complete steal! Unfortunately Natural Radiance doesn’t ship outside the UK just yet, but when they do I’ll definitely be buying!

Definitely check out the website, it’s sheet mask heaven!

I was also sent extra masks for a little giveaway so to be in with a chance of winning one of these lovely masks then to enter you must:

    ♥ Be following my blog via GFC
   ♥ Leave a blog post comment with your GFC name & your favourite type of face mask.

Giveaway closes on Monday 21st May.

There will be three winners, announced shortly after the giveaway closes.

Good luck! :)
