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...

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,
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 ♥
