Fashion Flash Giveaway with Peace & Love necklaces

Fashion Flash, our weekly emagazine, often hosts giveaways on the blogs that are part of this great group. This time it’s a romantic giveaway and it’s Beauty Info Zone’s turn. This is a two prong giveaway with a romance novel by a New York Times bestselling author and a necklace from Nancy Davis, owner of Peace & Love jewelry. Each of the two winners will receive two prizes that I’m sure will make your heart happy.

products sent for giveaway

Part 1 of the giveaway is a paperback novel by Elizabeth Hoyt, Wicked Intentions.

Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt

From the New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Hoyt comes the first book in her beloved Maiden Lane series.


Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she’s spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .


Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance’s help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London’s high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.


This is the first book in her 11 book Maiden Lane series and earned 4.5 stars from Romantic Times Book Reviews. It might just start you off on a journey you won’t want to end.

Part 2 is a necklace from the wonderful Peace and Love collection by Nancy Davis. As you are reading this the necklaces aren’t even available but you will have the chance to win one of these Black Friday specials in our giveaway.

Peace & Love Legacy Sterling Silver White Zircon Charm Pendant w/ 16″ Chain

Nancy Davis is going to be on EVINE to share her jewelry on Thursday 11/23 11 p.m. to midnight, and again on Black Friday 11/24 from midnight to 1 a.m, 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. (when the variety of necklaces will be shown), 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. with these necklaces and again from 1 to 2 p.m. and 10 to 11 p.m. Her collection of 16 necklaces will be available on Evine all day for the terrific price of $29.99 (normally priced at $55).

I have 2 to give away out of the 16 but I’d still advise you to check these out on Evine since they will make fabulous gifts. They come ready for gift giving in their colorful box so all you need is a bow and a gift card.

These have a 16″ inch chain with a 2″ extender. The chain itself is Sterling Silver while the stones are White Zircon and look like diamonds.

Peace & Love Black Friday necklaces

The Peace & Love necklace choices are the Peace & Love signature peace heart, a dove, an angel, a bumble bee, Fleur de Lis, pineapple, lotus, cross, Tree of Life, Evil Eye, Star of David, olive branch, circle, Hamsa, smiley, and lady bug. So many to choose from!

Peace & Love Heart

Peace & Love Dove

Our winners will receive one paperback copy of Wicked Intentions by Elizabeth Hoyt and one Peace & Love necklace. Our giveaway is open through 12/3/17 at 11:59 p.m. for US only. Our thanks go to the author and Nancy Davis for their generous products being given away to two of you. Good luck and good romance.  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY! Win and get rid of your blackheads with Anjou!

Anjou Giveaway!

Blackheads, ugh. Who needs them? No one!! Let’s get rid of them, shall we? How about a skin care kit with a dissolving serum, pore minimizer, and deep cleansing pore strips, a 6 piece blackhead removal kit with all the tools you need to safely and effectively remove stubborn blackheads, comedones, and pimples, and a terrific magnifying mirror to properly see them for removal? Anjou has everything you need – including a giveaway for all three items, making this a fantastic contest that everyone will love – everyone except your blackheads!

samples affiliate links

First, for treating those stubborn blackheads, Anjou Blackhead Remover Kit ($13) is a great treatment system that addresses problematic, congested skin. There is a serum for dissolving blackheads, which is followed with the pore strip. After the strip sits for ten or fifteen minutes, it’s peeled off and then you just massage in a little of the pore minimizer gel.

Blackhead Dissolving Serum and Pore Minimizer

Deep Cleansing Pore Strips

A complete poreless kit: Blackhead Dissolving Serum 48 ml / 1.6 oz, 32 Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, Pore Minimizer 48 ml / 1.6 oz

  •  Dissolve blackheads, remove dead cells, and shrink pores to reveal clear, fresh, and smooth skin
  • Designed to better fit your nose: Contour design with 6 ergonomic slits perfectly conforms to your nose for a more uniform contact
  • 32 strips for clearer pores: Benefit with 32 cleansing strips that will last for 4 to 6 months when used twice a week
  • Shorter treatment time: Quickly fix your pores with the easy-to-clean strip and cut your cleansing routine by half
  • A complete poreless kit: Blackhead Dissolving Serum 48 ml / 1.6 oz, 32 Deep Cleansing Pore Strips, Pore Minimizer 48 ml / 1.6 oz

Sometimes there are stubborn blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, or congested pores that need to be cleared out manually. As tempting as it is to use your fingers, that’s really not a good idea. Fingernails tend to rip and bruise the skin, making a bad situation even worse. You are much better off using the right tools for the job, and Anjou 6 in 1 Blackhead Remover Tools Kit ($8) has an excellent tool kit with 6 dual ended tools that address every possible problem in a precise and hygienic manner.

Anjou 6 in 1 Tool Kit

Anjou 6 in 1 Tool Kit

Anjou 6 in 1 Tool Kit

  • A Useful Skin Care Kit: A cleaner and more hygienic way than your fingers to remove impurities like acne, blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, and pimples
  • 6 Tools to a Clearer Complexion: 6 differently sized bottlenecks, needles, and tweezers effectively help you handle pimples and acne of different sizes and types
  • Ergonomically Shaped Stainless Steel: The tools are durable with a rust resistant stainless steel and anti-slip handle that helps you better control the pressure and get a secure grip during use
  • Convenience for Traveling: Individual leather package is convenient for storage and transport; integrated mirror enables you to use it everywhere
  • Precaution: We recommend to use the kit on acne that is ripe enough and please wipe all tools with rubbing alcohol before and after each use

There is a tool for every sort of skin emergency you can think of! Check out all of the different variations right at your fingertips to tackle any type of pore congestion. The tools are great quality – I was very impressed, especially with the price point so reasonable.

Anjou Makeup Mirror

The Anjou Makeup Mirror ($22)  is terrific. Lightweight, easy to use, and I love that it comes with batteries. One side is 1x magnification, the other is 7x magnification for seeing all those problem areas up close so you can do your extractions with the ultimate precision.

  • Standard & 7x Magnification Mirror: Reflect a clear image of your face or an extreme close-up to better view your eyes, chin, or nose for makeup, shaving, or deep cleansing
  • Full Circle LED Lights: Get a clearer sight of your face with a focused light that makes up for dim indoor lighting conditions
  • Double Side 360° Rotation: Spin the mirror and angle it at any position to obtain the best angle for different makeup needs
  • Portability for Flexibility: Benefit from the cable-free compact design and conveniently place it anywhere for a quick touchup
  • Unique Minimalist Design: Black and white linear style fits any décor; includes 1x Lighted Makeup Mirror, 3x AA Batteries, 1x User Guide, and a 12 Month Warranty
So this is really a 3 pronged approach (pun definitely intended!). Soften and dissolve those blackheads with the treatment serum and deep cleansing pore strips. Then, for particularly difficult blackheads, do proper extractions with the right tools using the 6 in 1 Tool Kit – and do this delicate work correctly using the Anjou Makeup Mirror.  Enter our giveaway for all three items today to make your blackheads a thing of the past! – Lisa
Giveaway information: giveaway ends at 11:59 EST 11/30/2017.  You must complete all three mandatory entry options to qualify for this giveaway!  Giveaway is US only.  Good luck!!

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Bronze and Strobe & Sculpt will update your holiday looks (giveaway time)

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Bronze, Strobe & Sculpt, Strobe & Sculpt Brush

Want to up your beauty for the holiday occasions coming up? With holiday parties and celebrations there are more reasons to beautify yourself. Pixi Beauty is a go to brand for me, especially for party time. Not only is it affordable but it’s on point with their products. Petra knows what is going to help create the best looks. Two of those are the Strobe & Bronze palette and the Strobe & Sculpt palette. These two palettes were done in collaboration with Maryam Maquillage and they are fabulous.


samplesaffiliate link

Here’s a recap of the Pixi Strobe & Bronze palette that I shared before.

Pixi Strobe & Bronze (Strobe & Chisel)

I use this palette often even though bronzing isn’t a big part of my life. But I’m able to use the bronzing shades lightly. It’s the left side of the palette though that makes me enjoy it so much.

Pixi Strobe & Bronze (Strobe & Chisel)

Highline is a pinkish glow that I use as blush or over blush.

Empress may look purple in my picture but actually just has a lavender undertone that works so well with cool toned makeup.

Lex is a gorgeous gold that isn’t harsh at all. Just soft and lovely.

Apply highlighters to tops of cheekbones, bridge of nose, and cupid’s bow to light up features

City Kitty is the lightest of the bronze shades and on the warm side while Statuesque is the darkest. And 917 is a cool toned bronzer that’s midtone.

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Chisel (bronze) palette from

The three highlight and 3 bronze shades work together so well as you can top the bronze shades with the highlighters. “Bring a soft natural glow and sheer sunkissed warmth to the skin with this palette that helps add subtle dimension to your features created by Maryam of MaryamMaquillage. The highlighters give a soft glowing luminosity while the bronze shades help create natural definition.”

(available at and Target, $20)

PIXI BEAUTY STROBE & SCULPT KIT is just as beautiful but a little darker. I don’t have swatches for it since I just have one for this giveaway so hopefully my descriptions work. The Kit comes with this great Strobe & Sculpt Brush although you can buy the brush separately too.

Pixi Strobe & Sculpt Brush

The Strobe & Sculpt Brush is made of vegan synthetic fibers and is so incredibly soft. It comes with a storage pouch too ($14 separately).

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Sculpt Brush

The Strobe & Sculpt palette to me is very similar to the Strobe & Chisel/Bronze one above so it just depends on which shades appeal to you more.

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Sculpt, highlight and contour palette

On the left side of Strobe & Scuplt (Strobe & Contour) are the 3 highlight shades:

Baby Chick is a matte cream shade that Maryam recommends you use in the center of the face to lock in foundation and brighten.

Caviar Dreams is a beautiful pinky peach blush/highlight.

Honey-Bunny is another stunner with it’s peachy gold beauty.

On the right are the three bronze/sculpt shades:

Minx is a shimmery bronzer that Maryam recommends you add to the outer contour of your face to add warmth and a bronzed glow.

Bo$$ Lady and Queen are darker shades of matte bronzers with Bo$$ Lady being the cooler of the two.

Pixi Beauty Strobe & Sculpt palette

How would you like to win a 1″ INSTA-CURL EZ STYLER in this Hot Tools Giveaway?

Hot Tools

I’m always excited to have a new giveaway for our Beauty Info Zone readers so when I was asked if I wanted to do one for this Hot Tools 1″ Insta-Curl EZ Styler I of course agreed. Once I started reading about it I was more eager to do this. And then something wonderful happened – I was told that 10 US BIZ readers will win one. Now I’m thrilled and I hope 10 of you will be also.

Hot Tools is sold at Ulta and at major beauty supply stores throughout the states. While I don’t have this particular curling iron I’ve certainly used Hot Tools products with success.

Let’s learn about what you can win:

Professional Features

Pulse Technology®
– Variable heat settings
– High speed heat up Maintains constant, even heat, from low to extra-hot, while you style.
– Creates long-lasting hold
Perfect heat for beautiful, cascading curls
Smooth surface for frizz-free styling
LED Heat indicator lights
High, Medium, Low temperature heat settings (LED indicator lights – High, medium, and low heat settings up to 430°F)

Separate On / Off switch
Cool tips
8-ft. professional swivel cord
One-year warranty

I’ve found prices from $42.99 to $54.99 for this particular model.

Are you going to be one of 10 winners? With holiday gatherings and gift giving right around the corner I’m sure your answer is yes!  —  Marcia

The Sunday Scoop is gobbling away at Giveaways

It’s coming and we can’t deny it. First Thanksgiving, then Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and then Christmas. And I’m not even prepared for fall let alone winter. Hopefully though some of these giveaways will make your own holiday and gift giving easier. Good luck and let me know if you are a winner so I can celebrate too.  —  Marcia


11/5  MELODY SUSIE WIGS  –  2 winners, US

11/9  PIXI LIP AND EYE PALETTES  –  2 winners, US/Can


Winner’s Circle: I’m happy to announce winners this week. The Mega Beauty Blog Hop was won by Shelley C for the BIZ’s prize and one of our long time readers Anne C won the $350 paypal prize. The group had trouble finding a winner for that since the rules said the person had to enter each blog’s giveaway and way too many people didn’t do that, sadly for the ones who were disqualified. Other winners on BIZ are Iliana R for the great IT Cosmetics BCA brush and Annette P and Sarah S for the 2 Good Earth Beauty boxes.

A new giveaway (or more) coming soon!
