SKINN Giveaway

Hey Guys and Dolls,

     Today I have an unexpected review. Last week I was informed that I was the winner of the Skinn Cosmetics Giveaway from Beauty Army. I was so excited. And then today this came in my mail.
It was really a no string attached giveaway. I didn't pay shipping or anything! But before we begin I just want to say that I wasn't paid to do this, I just want to, and that I won the contest fair and square.

Luxe Premier Eyeshadows

      Eyeshadow is one of my favorite products, so I was very happy to get this! This is the color "Seduction." The box says:
Twelve pure luxury full-treatment eyeshadows
that deliver rich anti-aging actives, anti-oxidants
and collagen-boosting peptides to the eyelids.
     It also says that the eye shadows are Talc-free so they wont crease. I don't really normally have a problem with my eyeshadow creasing, so I don't know if that is true, but I do really love the eyeshadows! They are a little on the shear side but completely buildable, I also found that they blended really well. Retail price for this is $32.

Collagenesis - 24 Hour Youth Preservation Cream

      I haven't had the opportunity to use this product enough to see if it does what it claims but I can say that it is very moisturizing! It's a very thick cream which is surprising because it is so light, but it soaks into the skin really well and I do like it. It smells good too, sort of sweet, but I'm not that great with scents so I can't place it. The box says:
This exceptional 24 hour cream represents the anti-aging breakthough 
technology of 17 countries.  Now fortified with HGH-mimicking plant derived peptides, 
Collagenesis continues to be the most advanced anti-aging formula to date. Used AM and PM, 
skin will look vibrant and breathtakingly radiant. Its youthful formula returns skin that 
is cushiony soft and velvety to the touch, tone that is astonishingly even, and texture that is dramatically refined and incredibly firmed.
     This retails for $48.50 and I will most likely buy it again when I run out! 

DermAppeal - Thermo-Enzymatic Microdermabrasion Treatment

    This stuff smells like mint chocolate chip ice cream, I love it. I've tried quite a few of these microdermabrasion treatments including the oil of olay one and the ever popular lemon and sugar scrub, and this is by far my favorite. My skin didn't feel dry after using this and the little grains inside were evenly spread out throughout the formula. Let see what the Box had to say:
This amazing, aluminum oxide free resurfacing and revitalizing treatment utilizes
 a naturally occurring mineral from the Dead Sea to give you all the benefits of a 
professional microdermabrasion treatment - at home. Use once or twice a week for a 
 softer, smoother, less lined, no pore look. 
     The retail price is $35 on this one. But finances allowing I'm gonna buy it again.

Olive and Enzyme Cleanser

Rich Balm Make-up remover and Deep Cleansing Mask - PM

      Don't be mad! I haven't tried this out yet. All I can say is that it smells amazing. I was confused at first as to how this could be a make-up remover and a mask but according to the directions to  us it as a mask you just leave it on a few minutes before removing. This retails for $24 and I promise to update this as soon as I use it!

Hand Restore

Redensifying and Whitening Water Resistant, Anti-Aging  Hand Cream

     This was something I was really happy to receive and I have used it, but I don't feel I've really used it enough to give a good review. One thing that I do want to point out is that the retail price is $32.50 and this bottle is only 2oz. Its pretty small for that price and it does take a lot of the product for my hands to feel as though they have been moisturized. It even says on the bottle "Apply Liberally" so I'm not 100% sold that I would pay 32 bucks for it.

Smudge Stick

     Love Love Love Love this product!!!! It says its for eyes and lips but the color they sent me is Cleopatra Black (Also love the name!!) so I really don't think I will use it on my lips but I LOVE it for my eyes, Its so creamy and it says on pretty well. I will buy this again and its only $15!! I've bought less amazing eyeliner for more!


Ultra Shine Lip Color SPF 8

     I don't know if this product is still available because I couldn't find it on the Skinn website, but I really really love it!! The color is kinda shear but it smells amazing and it made my lips feel so moist, more moist then some chapsticks I have. This color is Cherry and I like the color, but not really on me. It might look better on someone with a darker skin tone. However, if I could find it in another more pinkish color I would repurchase it. 
Retail Price ~$15

Bright Eyes

Eye Enhancing Treatment with Pro-Collagen

     I think this is supposed to be a concealer, but for me it doesn't really work. I can't find a shade on here and there are no options on the website to chose a shade. I could totally be using this wrong so I'm gonna research this a little more before completing my review. Sorry!!!
     Retail Price:$12

Final Thoughts

      The total price of my winnings is $214. I am so happy and grateful to Beauty Army and Skinn cosmetics for giving me all this great stuff.
