Summer Giveaway Winnings


Today I got a very delightful surprise - as you can see! Just before Christmas, Sarah from More Than Adored (you can see her gorgeous blog here!) emailed me to let me know that I was the very lucky winner of her Summer Giveaway!

Her blog post suggested I would win seven goodies all up. Hmm, Sarah, I think you put more than seven things in this box! Not that I'm complaining in the slightest!

She wrote cute little notes on all the packaging! I love how she's actually personalised everything! It's so sweet!

See, cute!


Sarah also included an adorable penguin card! I love it, it's so cute! She wrote a bunch of really lovely things inside! So sweet!



Yep, that's definitely more than what I thought! Wow, she's included a few extra goodies! How lucky am I!



MUA Nail Varnish in Frozen Yoghurt, Bright Pink and Shade 6

I actually already have the purple one that I got from the my blog swap with Amy (see here) however it doesn't hurt to have a backup! I also love the other colours, they are all perfect for summer! (Don't you love how the names get less creative haha!)



Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadow in Coppy Right

Ohhh this has been on my wishlist for so long! I've always wanted to try these from Essence yet somehow always forget when I go to their stands! (It has to be the limited edition products!) Sarah's note mentioned this was a dupe for Maybelline's Bad to the Bronze! Can't wait to try it out!



Smartskin Scented Cleansing Wipes

I've actually never even heard of this brand before, but Sarah says that these are her HG cleansing wipes, so I'm definitely looking forward to using them! It's no secret that I love trying out different wipes (don't worry all, I don't use only the wipes to remove my make-up!) so this will be excellent!



Maybelline Colorsensational in Coral Crush
This was the surprise lipstick - also the one that she said would look good on me! Judging by the colour, I would say she's very right! I have a feeling this is going to be one of my most worn lippies this summer!



Stila Smudge Stick in Tetra and Bourjois Smokey Effect Liner in Dark Purple

I already have the Bourjois liner, although I do use it often so I'll probably keep this one in my handbag! The Stila one is a surprise! I love Stila liners, they're such fantastic quality and so I'm very happy Sarah included this baby!


Maybelline Color Tattoo in Audacious Asphalt

I actually picked this one up myself in the Chemist Warehouse 50% off sale, but have yet to even use it! I'll probably stash mine away now for a future giveaway and keep the one Sarah gave me! I've been dying to use it!


Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Ultra-Foam Cleanser

I've actually tried this one before and I was pretty impressed, so it will be nice to use it again this summer! I love anything Neutrogena anyway, so I'm pleased!



Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunscreen Lotion

I actually have a half tube of this already, as it's my HG sunscreen! My boyfriend has started using it now too, so my half tube will be down to an empty tube soon enough, so it's great to have a backup waiting and ready! 



Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh SPF15

My boyfriend and I use this Vaseline like it's going out of fashion! I have a few tubes lying around the house, and only recently I was considering stashing one away in his car for when we're driving! It's the perfect moisturiser! Cooling for summer and with SPF15! Perfect excuse now!

So a huge, giant thank you to Sarah for all the beautiful goodies! I can't thank you enough for your beautifully kind words and your lovely generosity! If you haven't already checked out Sarah's blog, check it out now! She's a beautiful Aussie blogger, what's not to love! You can read her blog here.

So what did everyone think of what Sarah gave for her giveaway! She chose some excellent goodies which went really well with her Summer theme! I'm very happy with everything I got!
Have you tried any of these goodies before? If so, what did you think?

      I tried it today and was pleasantly surprised! The colour payoff is lovely! I definitely think you're right in saying they were forgotten about, and a real shame too as they are lovely!
