The twelfth day of Christmas giveaway with Eddie Funkhouser

Sadly today is the last day of our Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway. Happily it’s for EDDIE FUNKHOUSER COSMETICS which we totally love and are proud to be sharing with one of our readers. You’ve heard me rave about their products for years. That’s only because they are so fabulous! We review a lot of brands on Beauty Info Zone but not many touch our hearts. Eddie Funkhouser touches my heart. I love supporting an independent makeup line, especially one where the products are reasonably priced and so fabulous.
What will you win?

Two items started me on my Eddie Funkhouser journey – the Quattro Variable Lash Mascara and the Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus so I had to include these in this giveaway.
QUATTRO VARIABLE LASH MASCARA has been raved about over and over on Beauty Info Zone. It’s quite unique since there are 4 levels you can use to make your lashes your best. Just twist the wand to get the amount of coverage you want. I keep it on 2 for daily use and 3 for special times.

Ultra Definition Eye Lining Stylus changed my eyeliner life. Until I used this liner I almost always used a gel eyeliner but once I realized how smooth, smudge free, and easy to use this liner was I didn’t turn back. I’ve used up 2 already, that’s how much I love this. The brush is tapered making it easy to create a thin line or a thicker one if you prefer.

Hyperreal Nourishing Lip Colors are easy to wear and loaded with pigment. They are very moisturizing so that your lips look fuller and more kissable. INNUENDO is a neutral nude mauve eddie funkhouser innuendo lipstick
HYPERREAL HYDRATING LIP GLOSS are wonderful, non-sticky glosses. MEOW MEOW is a universal shade with a slight sprinkling of shimmer in it. It’s great over a lipstick and will work perfectly over Innuendo.

If you are like me you love them all and look forward to the times you can use them. Today I have a lot of masks provided by Antrodia, Miss Spa, 7th Heaven, BioRepublic and Look Beauty for the 9th Day of Christmas Giveaway.

ANTRODIA MASKS –  This is actually a second chance for you if you weren’t one of the 4 winners from my previous review. One person will be able to win both of their Radiance + Repair Face Masks: Detoxification + Calming and Intense Moisture Replenishment. This way you’ll get to see why I liked these masks so much. They are full face masks that are very hydrating and great for those of us with anti-aging needs. In addition to these two that winner will also receive the fun MaskerAide “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up” sheet mask that helps to lift, firm & soften fine lines. You’ll have fun with this package since you’ll hydrate, detox and help with fine lines.

BIOREPUBLIC is a wonderful company if you love to mask. These US made masks come in a variety of “flavors” and I have 3 for one winner. These are cruelty-free and made with the highest quality natural ingredients. All contain Vitamin E and are recommended for all skin types. CUCUMBER BREEZE is a soothing fiber mask that works best on stressed skin. It help tighten pores and reduce the appearance of fine lines. I love this mask! GREEN TEA DETOX is a purifying fiber mask  that is especially good if you want to help with blemishes and imperfections. It leaves you with clean, supple and refined skin while it helps remove excess sebum. ALOE RESCUE is the Revitalizing Fiber Mask. This mask has natural aloe vera juice in it which helps soothe dry skin. It’s really good for after sun use in case you get to go somewhere warm soon. Aloe Rescue provides immediate hydration so you end up with healthy, revitalized and lush skin.

MISS SPA is one of my favorite companies for masks since they have created so many. If you have any kind of need just check out Ulta or one of the stores that carries Miss Spa. I promise it will be hard for you to pick out the ones you want. One of the many reasons to love Miss Spa masks is that this is a woman owned company so we get to support women entrepreneurs. The winner of this group will receive the ILLUMINATE HYDROGEL FACIAL MASK which is a two piece mask that’s infused with pearl extract and collagen. The purpose of this mask is to help refine the skin’s surface so you get a lustrous look, clarity and a glow. TONE HYDROGEL CHIN MASK fits onto your chin by slipping the loop hole over your ears to secure the mask around you chin and jawline. This mask has been designed to help with the fines lines and crepiness in that area to give you a more lifted and youthful appearance. Now that your face and chin area are covered you’ll need your eyes and for that you’ll receive one packet of  Eye Repair Patch from Look Beauty. This is to help reduce eye puffiness which we all need. And there’s more!! Two packages of VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Masks will be in this package too (not pictured).

In addition all three of our winners will receive a 7th HEAVEN BLACK SEAWEED PEEL-OFF mask for purifying. This is great for oily and combination skin. Don’t be scared by this black peel off mask when you apply it. It contains Pressed Sea Buckthorn, Harvest Laver Seaweed from the Welsh seaside and crushed sea salt. You’ll be deeply cleansed using this mask.

IT’s the 8th Day of Christmas giveaway for IT Cosmetics

2 winners! IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc and brush

2 winners! IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc and brush

IT Cosmetics are it!! Beauty Info Zone readers know how mad we are about IT Cosmetics. It’s a brand that we fell in love with years ago and the feeling is still strong. We have 2 winners for the 8th day of our giveaways. Both will win the LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH VITALITY FACE DISC and each will one of the amazing IT Cosmetics full size brushes.

IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc

IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc

IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc is a one and done product. Every trend that you’ve been reading about and the products you’ve used throughout the years are here in one large disc. This contains Radiance Illuminator powder for a light strobing effect. Brightening Blush Tint for a lit from within effect. And Matte Bronzer to contour or give your skin that bronzing effect without any sparkle. Each of these three are waterproof and anti-aging. They contain Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peptides & Drops of Light Technology, plus Vitamins A, C & E, Grapeseed, Green Tea, Silk and Aloe.

IT Cosmetics face brushes

Each winner will also receive one of these two brushes. Since IT Cosmetics doesn’t always put the names on their brushes I’m not sure what to call them. The top one is flat but fluffy and perfect for applying these 3 shades with a little more precision. The bottom brush is two sided with one side being a fluffy brush that will apply the powders more softly and the opposite side can be used for concealer or eye makeup. You can’t go wrong with either.

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: The 8th day of Christmas giveaway is open to US and Canadian subscribers. It ends on December 15th at 11:59 p.m. Winners have 48 hours to answer my email. We are very excited about this particular giveaway since it’s sharing our love (and life and laughter) with our subscribers.

The 6th day of Christmas giveaway: You can never be too rich with Votre Vu!

Votre VuIt’s chic, it’s stylish, it’s rich…it’s Votre Vu. We love, love, love this line because almost everything we try becomes a favorite, from the skin care to the color cosmetics to the body products. For the 6th day of Christmas giveaway at Beauty Info Zone we share some beautiful Votre Vu products with you because you can never be too rich in blessings or in health, so you need to spoil yourself healthy!

Tarte D'Amande Soufflé

Lisa’s side:  TARTE D’AMANDE Soufflé Riche Pour Le Corps (also known as ALMOND PIE Rich Soufflé Lotion for the Body, $39) The name alone sounds like a fabulous dessert that you know might live on your hips for the rest of your life…but it looks and smells so amazing you just don’t even care.  Starting with the scent, it definitely does smell as delicious as you would expect. It is a warm, sweet scent that is a little more almond than pie. It isn’t overly foody or sickeningly sweet, and the almond smells natural, not artificial.  You will definitely sneak some inhales when no one is looking!

Tarte D'Amande Soufflé

The jar is huge and inviting. It comes with a plastic scoop – be sure to use that even though you will want to dig right in with your fingers.  The thick, creamy lotion is really beautiful. Super thick lotions are so moisturizing but they can go on wet and take a while to dry, or even stay a bit tacky on the skin. This one is a wonder, sinking in immediately and leaving skin ultra soft and lustrous. The lotion is full of great ingredients that dry skin will adore – macademia oil, vital, shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, D panthenol, and cerasome A and E.  As Votre Vu says, this rich body cream is 0% Guilt. 100% Pleasure.  So go ahead and be delicious.

Marcia’s side:  TRAGIC MAGIC RESCUE CREAM

Besides loving a name that rhymes like Tragic Magic, I love that this rescue cream does rescue dry skin. As a French botanical company their products are fragranced but in a delicate way due to the high quality pure ingredients they use. These aren’t artificial fragrances, they come from the french botanicals that the Votre Vu family harvests.

Votre Vu Tragic Magic

Votre Vu Tragic Magic

Tragic Magic comes to the rescue when your skin is parched since it rebalances your skin. It adds a protective barrier to calm skin when it’s having one of those reactive days (or weeks). This cream is rich and soft and absorbs quickly. Being someone who doesn’t use fragranced skin products often, I tend to use this on my hands and body.

Votre Vu Tragic Magic

Votre Vu Tragic Magic

It softens my hands making them feel like baby skin. It does this with ingredients like jojoba, rose hips, calophyllum, soja and avocado that protects and balances skin. It contains Vitamin E to fight against the evil cell-damaging free radicals. While I don’t use this on my face, I think it would be perfect for those who have sensitive skin.

Right now on Amazon all Votre Vu products are 40% off. I don’t know how long this lasts but it brings the price of this $40 magic cream down to $28 plus shipping.

Votre Vu Silk Stockings

Votre Vu Silk Stockings

GIVEAWAY For our 6th Day of Christmas Giveaways we have the wonderful Silk Stockings for a US/Canadian subscriber. Lisa reviewed Silk Stockings and felt it was a great giveaway for the holidays where you want some extra glow. Votre Vu calls this their glow-tion since you can use this for a sheen all over your body. You’ll want to shine and one winner will get to do that with Silk Stockings.

The 5th day of Christmas giveaway – makeup!!

On the 5th day of Christmas...

On the 5th day of Christmas…

Welcome to the 5th day of Christmas giveaway. While it’s not 5 gold rings, it is a bundle with 5 cosmetic items which is close enough if you are a Beauty Info Zone subscriber. See what you can win.

My favorite item in the giveaway is the bareMinerals First Crush Color Lipstick Palette. This is similar to the Buxom eyeshadow palettes since you can pop one lipstick out of the main palette and pop it into the individual compact. There are 5 lipstick shades in this. Fall in Love, Speak Your Mind, Shameless Flirt, Get Ready and Kiss Your Crush. I didn’t take them out of the palette so I can’t describe the colors but they are mighty pretty and a great range of shades.

Next up is the Elizabeth Arden Sweet Peach blush which is a peachy pink that looks soft and very wearable.

Now for the eyes – a deluxe sample set of DiorShow Iconic Overcurl Mascara and a DiorShow Lash Primer plus from Revlon there is a Photoready Kajal Matte Eye Pencil in Charcoal.

If you are counting that makes 4… but it’s 5 gold rings! Oops, it didn’t make it into the picture but it’s in the package. Milani Bella Sand eyeshadow is a sandy gold. It’s not brassy or brash. I think it makes a great subtle gold addition to this group.

A few of our favorite things – a blog hop giveaway that you’ll love to enter

Welcome to Beauty Info Zone. As part of our 12 Days of Christmas giveaways we’ve joined with a group of bloggers to do our first BLOG HOP. Each blog will have a different prize that they’ve chose to give away. I’ve chosen the COLOURPOP FAUNCY BOX which contains 3 creme gel eyeliners and 3 creme pencils. I bought one for myself as well so I could show you what you’ll be getting.

There are 3 pencils in the set:  Bustier – matte black, Soiree – charcoal with some shimmer, Frill – silver/lavender metallic. I really like the variety in the pencils. Both Soiree and Frill add a nice dimension to my collection. These apply easily and they are long lasting. While they don’t work well on me on my waterline, they do last when I use them as a lower lash eyeliner. Frill is described as a soft, icy lavender. It has a little bit of shimmer but it’s not too much. It’s unique to me. Soiree is a pencil that was missing in my collection since finding charcoal is tough. It’s described as a deep gunmetal with silver and gold shimmer. I don’t find the shimmer to be obvious but I don’t layer it which would probably make it show more.

The creme gel eyeliners are all black or charcoal. Bustier – matte black, Polar –  black with multi shimmer, and Soiree –  charcoal metallic, slight shimmer. The Creme Gel Eyeliners are a tad disappointing but that’s because I normally line top and bottom lash lines. While the Creme Gels last quite well and apply smoothly along my top lashline, they don’t last at all on my bottom lashline. They’ll crack on me after a few hours. That doesn’t make me not wear them though, I just use the pencil on the bottom and the creme gel on the top!

Polar is a black that’s not ultra black. It’s softened by multi-colored shimmer in it. I really like this a lot and wish it worked on my bottom lashline. Bustier is described as a deep blackened olive but on me it’s basically black. I don’t find that the olive shows up when used as an eyeliner. Soiree is my favorite. It works well with the pencil of the same name as they are both a gunmetal with silver and gold shimmer. I don’t find the shimmer to be glittery which is a plus in my book.
