As I await the arrival of the Bomb Cyclone winter storm that is predicted to arrive early this morning, I am thinking let’s start the first week of 2018 with a giveaway! If one of your goals for 2018 is to master highlighting and contouring or just to do it more often, then this is a giveaway for you. Or, if you’re looking a little pale and could use some color, check this out.
Because I don’t contour very often, I want the lovely palette I received from Jesse’s Girl to go to a good home where it will be used and enjoyed. Similarly, I received a travel size bronzer, Benefit Dew the Hoola, in one of my subscription bags, and I don’t use bronzer.
Both products are new, and I have not tried them. So I don’t have swatches and can’t do a review. But I can show you photos of the products, and describe them.
Jesse’s Girl Highlight & Contour Kit
Jesse’s Girl Highlight & Contour Kit contains 8 pans of pressed powders:
- 4 highlighters: the shades of the highlighters are difficult to describe. They seem to be pale mauve-peach, pale peachy-pink, light slightly golden yellow, and mauve/peach. In the pan, they look matte, but it is possible that they may have a glow since the Jesse’s Girl website describes as giving “a radiant glow”.
- 4 contours: lighter golden brown, medium brown, reddish brown, coffee
The palette is sealed – sorry about the shadow on the photo. But you can get an idea of the shades.
The shades are described as “velvety-smooth” and “buildable”, two attributes that I consider very important so that highlighting and contouring can look natural and be easy to control.
Check out the Highlight & Contour Kit on the Jesse’s Girl website. Cruelty-free. $12.99
Benefit recently launched a liquid version of their popular Dew the Hoola powder bronzer. I got a deluxe sample in either my Ipsy or Sephora Play bag not long ago. According to Ulta, the new bronzer provides “smoothing effects & buildable lightweight liquid texture (that) melt in for a shimmerless, natural looking tan that’s so sheer & seamless”.
It comes in a pump bottle. The sample contains 5 ml/0.16 fl.oz. and is valued about $5. The full size that can be purchased at Ulta, Sephora or on the Benefit website is priced at $28 for 30 ml/1 fl.oz.
I am giving away Jesse’s Girl Highlight & Contour Kit (full size and valued at $12.99) and Benefit Dew the Hoola Bronzer (deluxe sample valued at $5) to one lucky Never Say Die Beauty reader. Both of these products are designed to give color and dimension to your face, perfect for winter when it’s not unusual to look a little pale or tired.
The giveaway is limited to U.S. residents, age 18+, where permitted by law. The giveaway will run till Friday of next week, January 12, 2018; the last full day of the giveaway is Thursday, Jan. 11.
