EOTM: "Your favourite December EOTD" Giveaway!

Prize #1 is a selection of five products from Mirenesse - these were either purchased personally by me, included as freebies with orders, or were part of my VIP packs.

Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadows palette #6 Baroque Pearls (my personal fave)
Seamless Velvet Shadow #7 Italian Model (pink/grey)
Seamless Velvet Shadow #1 Indian Princess (beige/deep blue)
Mirenesse Secret Weapon 24 hr Mascara (full size, sealed) - BROWN
Mirenesse 24hr Brow Lift & Shape Mascara - (mini, sealed)

Baroque Pearls, natural light

Prize #2 consists of:
Chi Chi eye shadow palette - Glamourous Nudes

All products were purchased by me, are brand new and boxed/packaged.

  1. Great giveaway! It's so hard to choose just one but I would have to choose Number 8! It reminds of the time I watched the sun go down during a trip to the long jetty!

    I'm following through Google Friend Connect
    GFC: Basmah Qazi

    I would love prize 2!

    1. Nice choice Basmah - it does have that sunsettish (is that a word?) quality about it, and easily created with the Glamourville palette, thanks for entering hon :-)

  2. If I have to choose, it is the no 4 (christmas ombre right?) I have been eyeing that for a while, but I don't have the correct color to replicate your look.
    I am stalking you via bloglovin & google+ and if I have my choice it would be Prize 2
    username: Ailyn Koay

    1. Hi there Ailyn - you're such a sweet stalker ha ha... Yes #4 is the Christmas Ombre - those true berry shades are rare and the L.A.Colors Wildflowers palette I used is also hard to find, but well worth seeking out :-) Good luck hon!

  3. This is always so difficult hon! Thank you ever so much for your generosity and efforts into creating and photographing beautiful looks!

    I'm really digging look no. 10 because it's such an unusual pairing of green and purple (they're my favourite colours, and I never thought I'd see them together! But here it is in all its glory, it really is a marvellous sight).

    It reminds me of two things: 1. a friendly, funky alien has landed. I am curious and want to approach the mothership (that's you!!) to say welcome and hello and 2. the purple flowers blooming in front of my house, they're on multiple vines and are spreading everywhere, brightening up my house! :D

    Bravo bravo this piece of artwork will not be erased from my mind I can assure you that. One day I may even try to recreate it if that's okay with you :) (I have brown eyes and apparently green and purple eyeshadows are the best choices to make them pop - this look would make them doubly pop!!)

    I'm following you absolutely everywhere, I love the positive energy you and your blog radiates so I don't wanna miss a thing.

    I would be thrilled with either prize but think I'd enjoy playing with pack 1 - so many purples and pretty colours and a BROWN mascara?! Me likey :)

    Stay golden xx

    1. Gosh themissus, your post has me tripping! - I mean it hon, what a joy to read your ever so kind and inspiring words, thanks most sincerely my dear ♥ I'm so thrilled you enjoy my ramblings and eye makeup experimentation - I post them here in the hope they'll inspire other gals to play around with colour, so go for it! The green and purple will suit your eye colour beautifully, far better than mine (not that I EVER let that stop me ha ha)...

  4. I like no. 3 - you've featured the Pantone colour of 2013 so beautifully. Personally I'm a big fan of emerald green & it really suits your hair & eye colour.

    Hard to choose though, all of the looks are so well done & beautiful in their own right.

    I'd like to enter for pack no. 1, I've not tried Mirenesse eye products. I follow you on email


    1. An absolute delight to see your name here Linda - thanks for the lovely comment, and best of luck in the giveaway xxx

  5. Well you know me hun ;) I love number two,
    but I must say I also love the blue.
    Then we have that number nine,
    my goodness that colour is looking damn fine.
    When my eyes reach the number four,
    that shade of pink is one I really adore.
    The choice is so hard I don't know what to say,
    ok ok it's number 2, the purple, all the way!

    I'd love to win the Chi Chi pack for sure,
    for Chi Chi is something I wish I had more.

    I'm following you by GFC and Bloglovin as Gemma Sapphire & Lady Sapphire ;-)
    and my email is

    1. Oh wow Gemma, this little ditty is an absolute gem, I'm grinning from ear to ear! - very clever you gorgeous thing you, thanks for joining in the fun, and definitely adding to it ♥

  6. I LOVE Gemma's comments, sound like my own - I like.. but I like..... then I also like... It's gorgeous. LOVE the purple but if I had to choose just one I'd be here for an hour!!!! NOT choosing one because I don't think it's fair to try to win another prize so soon after the lovely MUA palette but I did want to say they all look fabulous and when set out in such a gorgeous collage fashion it's inspiring and gorgeous and.......I could go on!
    Good luck to the winners, I know whoever wins will love the prize as I'm loving mine.
    With love,

    1. Aww darling Trish - of course you can enter again sweetie, one of my followers has already one twice! But I also know that the kindness in your heart is so all-consuming you always want to share the love - bless you hon ♥

  7. Decisions, hard because I do love all of them but I am going to be totally different this time. I am loving No 11, because it is totally inspiring because of the different hues. The eyeshadow is soft and romantic but at the sametime giving a sexy, edgy eye look. It really is beautiful and one day, will try it for myself.
    I would definitely pick No 2 prize as I've never tried Chi Chi and loving the nudes.
    I am following you through your blog through google (gmail) plus emails. My email address is and my username is Mandy.

    1. I'm tickled that you like this one Mandy - it was actually version 2 of the same colour combo. The first one is vastly different (and if I get around to it will post it for comparison probably on bh EOTD thread) but this one has a place in my heart, for all the reasons you mentioned hon. So happy you've entered, and good luck my dear :-)

  8. I'm torn between #3 Christmas Green look is so perfect with your lovely hair colour - set off with the glitter eyeliner !
    and #13 - this look simply jumps out at me! Stunning with bold purple and contrasting blue for brilliant effect !

    Prize #1 - I've yet to try any Mirenesse products and this complete pack (eye shadows, mascaras) would give me plenty of colour to play around with!

    follow you GFC as karen lee

    and also see your work on bh forums!

    1. Hey there kassalee, how lovely to read you here hon - so glad you've entered, and your enthusiasm is delightfully infectious!

  9. These pictures of EOTD as so pretty that I want to look at them all the time.
    When I was in high school, we had a pretty aquarium in my class with marine fish all colourful and beautiful. I was often caught gazing into the aquarium and daydreaming instead of listening to my lecturers. All these EOTDs remind me of those high school days when I would just gaze at the pretty colourful fish and it was a great stress reliever.
    I really cant pick a favourite but somehow my eyes gravitate more towards number 5. It reminds me of royalty,wealth and calmness. The gold represents you the royal queen of EOTD and represents the wealth of talent you have. The green has significance with nature and gives that calming effect. Thanks for sharing your wealthy wisdom of beauty with us and I just admire your creativity.

    I would Love to win the Chi chi prize as I love wearing nudes and I am not brave enough to venture into colourful eyelooks to work as yet.

    1. Such a lovely story moonlight, thanks for sharing it hon - wow I reckon you were most fortunate to have an aquarium in your classroom, I would have been watching it all day too lol...

  10. Tough choice but Ive gone for #6 mainly because i myself have a passion for green and orange shades for my eyes and usually with a violet eyeliner. I feel that it brings out the green and blue in my eyes and looking at the photo i feel that those colours do the same for you also.

    I very much would love Prize #2 *drool*

    1. Gee fawn I'm going to steal your idea of the violet liner with this shade combo if you don't mind, sounds divine :-)

  11. As a dyed-in-the-wool "green queen" I actually surprised myself - and probably everyone else - by falling for number 4! I adore pinks but I cannot wear them at all, they make me look like I've been crying. As the saying goes, we always want what we can't have, and so true to form I am smitten with the fresh, shimmery, springy, summery, pretty and perfectly polished pink! The hint of white shimmer at the inner corner makes your eyes look larger and draws attention to the beautiful green of your iris, and the piece de resistance is the soft-smudged charcoal liner, adding depth without overwhelming and letting the pink be the star of the show!

    1. Aaaaand being me, I forgot to include any of my details! I follow you on GFC and Bloglovin, presumably as Kristine Simmonds or hissycatkrissy, I'm not quite sure! My email is catn2kittens at :) And I would LOVE prize #1, the beautiful Mirenesse products!

    2. Deliriously happy to see your gorgeous face on here Krissy, and so glad you added your details. AND thrilled you like the berry ombre EOTD - it's quite a change for me, I too have to be super careful with where I put the pinks ♥

  12. AWESOME!!!!!! :D I've just sat down after doing all the cooking and cleaning and seeing my name here has turned my frown upside down!!!! O.M.G I'm so happy!!! I did a quiet little "yes!" and a fist pump behind the screen of my laptop I didn't disrupt the families TV time :)
    Thank you so much Kats! I cannot wait to get my Chi Chi on! And congrats to themissus for winning the Mirenesse pack :)

    1. Well done Gemma - your poem was so creative and clever, and I hope you'll enjoy your play time with the products xxx

  13. Phwoooah!! Congratulations to you too Gemma, thank you ever so much lovely Kats! I am beyond thrilled to have my first Mirenesse goodies, I've read so many rave reviews from their site :)

    1. Delighted for you themissus - gosh if you've never tried Mirenesse products before, then this prize certainly went to a good home :-)

  14. CONGRATULATIONS to the two lucky ladies :)
