SPOTLIGHT: beautyheaven Best in Beauty Prize Pack!...

Christmas sure came early for me on Friday with the arrival of my beautyheaven Best in Beauty prize box - a huge carton containing a selection of this year's award winning products worth over $1,000! From what I can see from the other lucky winner's haul pics, the contents of each prize box is different - there are some items common to all, but the majority are unique to each winner, which means this post is not going to spoil the surprise for the other lovelies who are still waiting for delivery of their great big box  I'm absolutely thrilled to bits with what bh selected for me, and still in shock at my good fortune to be one of the 10 gals who scored this fabulous collection of beauty-booty...

For those readers who don't know about beautyheaven, it's THE place to go to for the latest beauty news, a forum community of gorgeous like-minded beauty gals, generous weekly competitions, how-to articles and videos, and honest and entertaining member reviews of a massive range of products from the market. I've been a member since 2008, and if you're after a daily dose of what's happening in the beauty world, there's none to compare ♥...

The beautyheaven Best in Beauty awards are held every year around August - members vote for their favourite all-time beauty products from the list of nominations. You can see which products won here. Anyone can vote, but this year only members could go into the draw to win one of the prize boxes, by submitting a 25-words-or-less answer to a question about their favourite beauty product. Well Lady Luck was sure shining on me, and in case it's not clear from the photo, here's the list of what I received (in alphabetical order)...

All up, 30 fantabulous products - there's only a couple that don't suit me colour-wise, but these will be lovingly shared with the friends and family members already queueing up outside my door ha ha. There's SO MANY I haven't tried before, plus a few firm favourites, and of course I'll be reviewing them, both on beautyheaven and here on my blog. I reckon it will take me at least 12 months to get through the list!

My heartfelt thanks to beautyheaven, and all the generous companies who provided their products for the competition. I feel truly blessed 

Are any of these products on your Holy Grail list?

Take care of you,
kats xxx

P.S. In case you're wondering which HG product I wrote about to win this prize, it was Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner. It wasn't in the prize pack, but it doesn't matter a fig - this is such a staple on my beauty bench, I already have two spares in my drawer lol 

P.P.S. Why not join me in reading the wonderful blogs listed on Ingrid's Monday Makeup Madness Link Up Party - starts every Monday morning at 6.30am...

  13. Hi, BLONDIE,
    Ha, ha, - sorry, Hun but can't stop giggling - back to blonde where it all began, or does someone else get the blond hair colour????? Seriously though, NO ONE deserves it more than you do and I am delighted! I'm assuming, from what you've said, that it went to your office at work? How on earth will you get it home? Wonderful prize for an even more wonderful lady. Enjoy it all.

    Love,
    Trish.
