Fall into giveaways with The Sunday Scoop

Whatever you do, don’t give up on giveaways. I know it can be a pain in the behind sometimes to fill out the same information all the time but your day will come. Even though I spend all my free time looking for giveaways I don’t enter a lot myself. I have to really really want the item or it has to be something hard for me to find before I enter. Well at last I won a giveaway, from Dave Lackie’s website, for a Dior eyeshadow palette. I was thrilled and surprised. If it can happen to me, it can happen to you too. Don’t give up, keep trying – that’s a life rule too!  —  Marcia

The Vintage Cosmetic Company: 1950’s glamour that you’ll love (mini giveaway too)!

What makes you stop and look at a display when you are shopping? Is it color? Is it creativity? Is it something unique? If so you’ll be thrilled to learn about The Vintage Cosmetic Company since they embody all of these attributes and more. This range of cosmetic accessories has been inspired by the glamour and charm of the 1950’s. You don’t have to have lived back then to enjoy the adorableness and practicality of their products. We’re excited to show you these and have a mini giveaway with them too.

This UK company has products that you are going to want to own and use because even as cute as they are, they are practical and fabulous. Ulta has the U.S. exclusive on the products available currently that want to make you feel like a glamour puss.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap and Hair Turban

These two products are making shower time even more fun. Whether I decide to wash my hair or give it another day of rest The Vintage Cosmetic Company has the right tool for me and at the right price.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap and Hair Turban

Since I no longer wash my hair daily I need something to keep it from getting wet and a shower cap is the right solution. Not only is The Vintage Company Shower Cap ($6.99) cute as can be but it’s super comfortable.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap

(I tuck my hair in and don’t wear my glasses, I promise!) The outer material is 100% polyester and silky soft while the inside has a PEVA lining that keeps your hair dry as can be. My favorite part of this cute peach cap is how it’s not tight and doesn’t leave marks around my face. I can take a quick shower and not have to worry about it leaving telltale signs behind. There’s also a flowered version for more 50’s glamour.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap

I’m really happy with the Vintage Company Hair Turban ($7.99). I needed one so badly and this exceeds my expectations. This machine washable towel looks like terry but it’s made of absorbent microfibers so it soaks up moisture quickly.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Hair Turban

What makes this different from all others I have is the closure. If you look above you’ll see a loop on the left and buttons on the right. Once you’ve twisted it closed you then secure the towel with those two. I can do anything around my house without it falling off. I just made a dish that takes an hour to bake. I had my turban on while combining the ingredients and sticking it in the oven. It stayed on perfectly. Other days I’ve left it on for a few minutes while I get ready to blow dry. Either way it’s fabulous. I already have this on my list to take on my winter cruise.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Hair Turban

Since my hair is shoulder length I use the second button while those with shorter or finer hair would use the first. One size fits all. One head of hair dried more quickly. This doesn’t pull at all and is amazingly comfortable. You need this in your life!!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company

Makeup Melts ($14.95) are wash cloths that remove makeup without any cleanser. Just get it wet, then gently scrub face in a circular motion. It really does remove all traces of makeup! The washcloth is definitely full of makeup after, so you pop it into the washing machine and it comes out looking fabulous and ready for another go.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makeup Melts

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makeup Melts

There are three Makeup Melts in a pack, so it’s great for a long weekend away. As an extra bonus, the washcloths have a side that is perfect for exfoliation too!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blue Bell Makeup Headband

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blue Bell Makeup Headband

While you are removing that makeup with the Makeup Melts, keep your hair off your face with the super fabulous and always stylish Blue Belle Makeup Headband ($4.99).  This comes in different colors, mine is a blue polka dot design with an adorable large bow.

The bow is elastic so it keeps everything securely in place, but it’s nice and soft so it doesn’t hurt your head or pull your hair.  I absolutely love this.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Manicure Purse

My final adorable product is the Manicure Purse ($10.95), a compact manicure purse that comes in four different patterns. I have the pink striped one with pink lining. Isn’t it the bees knees??  The Vintage Cosmetic Company Manicure Purse

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Manicure Purse

No wonder this is one of The Vintage Cosmetics Company’s best sellers! Inside are Nail Scissors, stainless steel Nail Clippers, Cuticle Pusher, and Floral Emory Board. This is a fabulous gift for teachers, bridal showers, stockings….the possibilities are endless!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Blue Bell Makeup Headband

GIVEAWAY:  We have a small giveaway for two readers to introduce you to The Vintage Company. The cute Makeup Bows are the prize, pink for one and blue for the other. The giveaway is open through October 12, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EDT for US and Canadian subscribers. This may be a small prize but we can promise you’ll enjoy winning!

I’ve joined the coconut revolution with Palmer’s (giveaway time)


Walk into any drugstore or superstore like Target and Walmart and you’ll be sure to see this logo. Palmer’s has been around helping us out for years. But they aren’t the same old Palmer’s of your youth. They are new and improved and keeping up with the times.

My blog partner Lisa is a coco-NUT. Anything that has the scent of coconut is something she’ll try so I had to sneak today’s products by her so that I could see what the fuss was all about. And now I do. Palmer’s has created two great Coconut Oil Formula products that I’m the one getting nutty about.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Cleansing Balms are a great alternative to regular cleansers since they are so gentle on your skin. This one by Palmer’s uses their Coconut Oil Formula which uses only ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil that’s been infused with Tiare flower petals. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? But this is just $8 and will last for so long.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Upon opening you’ll find a slightly solid texture that you use on dry skin. Work it onto your face with just a small amount of warm water and it will transform into a rich and creamy texture to gently remove everything from the day from dirt and impurities to  makeup. It feels wonderful while on and you’ll enjoy massaging this in. I use warm water and a wash cloth (usually a flannel cloth from The Body Shop) to remove this.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

So why this cleansing balm as compared to some of the more expensive ones?

  • No Phthalates
  • No Parabens
  • No Mineral Oil
  • No Gluten
  • No Sulfates
  • No Dyes
  • Natural Coconut Oil & Monoi

Not only is this effective but the smell is intoxicating! My skin doesn’t feel stripped and this adds just the right touch of hydration especially as the weather is flip flopping around.


Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

As a certified (or is it certifiable?) mask lover I am totally impressed with the Hydrating Facial Mask from Palmer’s. The first time I used it I was bowled over by it. This is one of the gentlest masks I’ve ever used and it’s definitely the least messy mask I’ve used. I can’t rave about this enough and for sure I’ll stop at Walmart to pick this up when I’m done with this tube.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

It shows up as a pure white on my skin so my pictures wouldn’t show you anything. This Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask feels so light on yet when I wash it off my face my skin is totally replenished and feels soft for days. It only takes 10 minutes to use and then I massage it onto my skin before rinsing. While it makes no promises to reduce pores and make me look 10 years younger, it does tighten up my pores and makes my skin look its best. I can use this as many times a week as I want because it’s as gentle as a lamb.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

It’s made with pure coconut water along with a rich blend of natural oils (Coconut Oil, Monoi Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil).

  • No parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates and dyes
  • No gluten
  • Made with natural coconut oil and monoi
  • Formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients
  • With raw coconut sugar
  • Made with natural vitamin E

Not only am I happy that I’m now part of the coconut family but two of you will be able to win these products thanks to Palmer’s.  —  Marcia


Two US Beauty Info Zone subscribers will win both the Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask and the Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm from Palmer’s. The giveaway is open through October 5th at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

Another charming box for Boxycharm and another charming giveaway

September 2017 Boxycharm

I think I get more excited about receiving my Boxycharm each month than just about anything. I’ve purchased this now for about 2 years and I’m even on a 6 month prepurchase. After I moved my box never got forwarded and they were terrific about getting me a box so their CS is top notch.

The variety of items in Boxycharm makes me happy plus just about every month there’s a full size eyeshadow palette and you know I’m all about eyeshadows. This month’s box is great for those of us who love eye makeup.

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette

I was most excited to learn about this Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette? Is the Pope Catholic? Darn tootin’ I was and this shows why:

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Diaries eyeshadow palette

8 beautiful matte shadows and 4 shimmers and all in colors I love to wear.

Pur Cosmetics Soiree Dairies (from purcosmetics.com)

This $34 palette will be getting a lot of use from me and Boxycharm has more than paid for itself with just this one item.

Bodyography eyeshadow and angled liner brushes

This Brush Duo from Bodyography (value $20) is a great accompaniment to this palette. The flat shader is the style brush that I use for my lids every day.  It’s a goat hair brush that is soft yet dense. The angled liner is soft and easy to use with the matte shadows or gel liners for lining.

MAC Lingering Eyebrow Pencil

Not only has Boxycharm added brands like Pur and ColourPop but now there’s MAC. MAC Lingering Eye Brow Pencil is a self-propelling, self-sharpening brow definer. Great for travel. Subscribers received either Lingering or Spiked. ($18)

Studio Makeup HD Powder

Studio Makeup HD Powder ($35) is also in the box. I don’t know about you but a jar this size will last me for years. Since it’s a translucent powder it should work on just about everyone. Some people received a loose blush from Studio Makeup in their box.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Strut

Each month brings us a lip from Boxy and this month they again sent the popular Colourpop our way. I received Strut which is a pretty fall shade in their Ultra Satin Lip formula.

Colourpop Sturt Ultra Satin Lip (from colourpop.com)

Colourpop describes this as a cool toned taupe. Even with the name “ultra satin” it’s a matte liquid lip but it’s not as drying as their Ultra Matte.

Brigeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask

Boxycharm seems to be putting in a non-cosmetic item each month too and this month it’s Brigeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask (2 oz, value $9). Brigeo is very popular and this mask is one of their top sellers. It’s to be left in your hair for 5-10 minutes before rinsing out. This isn’t a good mask for me since it’s so highly fragranced (my opinion) but one of my good friends love it so she’ll receive it in the next package I send her.

The total value for my $21 Boxycharm subscription is $123 so I’d say I’m ahead of the game. And since my last Boxycharm giveaway was such a success I have another one for you today.In this particular giveaway you’ll receive two items from Studio Makeup plus the MAC Lingering Eye Brow Pencil and lots of surprises. The palette is from a previous Boxycharm and has been knocking around in my drawer so it looks a little under the weather but it’s brand new.

Studio Makeup On-The-Go palette

To enter you need to be an email Beauty Info Zone subscriber and comment. Those two are mandatory although you wouldn’t believe how many entries I get that people don’t do these (bye bye kiddo). All other Rafflecopter entries are there to help you get more chances to win. The giveaway is open through 9/30 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. If comments close early email me at [email protected] with your comment. This is open for US and Canada only.

If I’ve convinced you to become a Boxycharm subscriber then I hope you’ll use my affliate link. — Marcia

ColourPop glitter eyeshadow giveaway time

It’s fall and it’s time for a cosmetic giveaway. We’ve got 3 ColourPop eyeshadows and a ColourPop brush for one lucky lady plus a second winner will receive one shadow.

These fall shades are all Super Shock eyeshadows which means they have a spongy feel to them. They work best with fingers and CP has created some brushes for those of us who prefer to use them.

Shades are

CRICKET  –  an Ultra Glitter shade that’s described as icy purple with multi-dimensional glitter. I see it as a bronze with a purple undertone and multi-glitter

ColourPop Cricket

PEEKABOO  –  to my eye it’s a glittery light beige with a slight peach undertone (discontinued)

ColourPop Peekaboo

BIRTHDAY GIRL –  an Ultra Glitter shade that’s light gold with both silver and pink glitter

ColourPop Birthday Girl

ColourPop brush

ColourPop brush

The first winner chosen will receive these three shadows and the brush. The second winner will receive Birthday Girl.
