The Makeup Misfits Giveaway!

14 Jun

Well May was a big makeup fiasco for us Glimmer Shimmer girls. First there was the NYX debacle. Next, Red had been going through an ordeal with Macy’s.  Red decided to order MAC’s Crushed Pigment in Summer Stash from the Surf Baby Collection. MAC was sold out of the pigments. It was debated about where to order from, but it was finally decided upon Macy’s because they are usually very reliable. Until now. Red only received one item of her order. The pigments were MIA. After filling out a missing item form online, a replacement was shipped. It was the wrong color.  After a phone call to a Macy’s representative, they said they would ship the correct color and it would be there within 7 to 10 days. Red never received a shipping notification or the pigments. Another phone call later, Red found out that they never reshipped the pigments. Of course, they are sold out of the warehouse and only a few stores have them left in stock. The Macy’s representative was kind enough to offer to give me direction to the nearest Macy’s that had them in stock 10 HOURS AWAY. Needless to say, the whole thing did not end well.

We are  now making lemonade out of all of these sour lemons by doing a giveaway for you, our lovely readers. We have some big prizes for you. BIG!

    GLIMMER AND SHIMMER! My go-to for summer is my Naked palette. I like going for a really neutral look during most of the summer and this palette has it all.

    Hello Glimmer and Shimmer! My two go to items are tinted moisturizer with SPF 15 and bright red lip stain-neither melt off in the heat, thank goodness!

  15. Becca June 16, 2011 at 10:34 pm #

    GLIMMER AND SHIMMER! Definitely go to is tinted moisturizer with SPF 20…. lighter weight than foundation and protects my skin when I’m in the sun!

    My go-to product so far this summer has been Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin by itself for a subtle GLIMMER AND SHIIMMER eyeshadow. Also, a light dusting of Cover Girl TruBlend Naturally Luminous Loose Powder gives my fair skin a healthy faux glow.

    I only want to GLIMMER & SHIMMER, not to be a lobster mobster… hence, my go-to summer makeup item is the tinted moisturizer with SPF by Dermalogica… it’s like magic for the face, and helps to beat the heat effect on my face piece. LONG LIVE GLIMMER & SHIMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
