Lovely prize from Helpless Whilst Drying

Giveaway Prize Helpless Whilst Drying

I love a good blog give-away and I was super happy to hear that I was a runner up in the great one hosted by Rachael from Helpless Whilst Drying. Rachael runs an amazing blog, so be sure to check out her lovely reviews and great hauls right here.Β 

My runner up prize was the hyped NYX soft matte lip cream in shade Copenhagen. I was super excited to try this, as NYX isn’t easy to get here and I had been reading so much lovely stuff about these lipsticks on loads of beauty blogs. I know Copenhagen might not have been the most on-season colour choice, but I had seen it on Rachael (here) and loved it. Honestly cannot wait to try this.

There was a bit of a surprise in the parcel though, as Rachael hadn’t stopped there but added some amazing Makeup Revolution goodies. She must have read my mind, because I had really been anxious to try Diffused Pro Highlight and I absolutely love all the other colour choices.

Time to fess up: there were also two chocolate bars in the parcel, but I might have eaten those before I had time to photograph them. Never get between me and chocolate.

So another big thank you to Rachael for hosting such a lovely give-away and sending me such a generous prize! Cannot wait to review these beauties here on the blog.

Ik ben dol op een goede winactie en ik was superblij om te horen dat ik een van de winnaressen was van de leuke prijsvraag die was georganiseerd door Rachael van Helpless Whilst Drying. Rachael heeft een erg leuk blog, dus bekijk zeker eens haar top reviews en leuke hauls (hier).

Mijn prijs bestond uit de bekende NYX soft matte lip cream in de kleur Copenhagen. Ik heb erg veel zin om deze te proberen, omdat NYX hier lastig te krijgen is en ik al zoveel goede reviews gelezen had over deze serie op een hoop blogs. Copenhagen is misschien niet de meest logische keuze voor dit seizoen, maar ik had de kleur bij Rachael gezien (hier) en was er dol op. Kan echt niet wachten om deze te testen.

Er zat nog een verrassing in het pakketje, want Rachael had ook nog een aantal geweldig Makeup Revolution goodies toegevoegd. Ze kan vast gedachten lezen, want ik was al een tijdje aan het azen op de Diffused Pro Highlight en ben ook helemaal weg van alle andere kleurkeuzes.

Tijd voor een bekentenis: er zaten ook nog twee chocoladerepen in het pakket, maar die heb ik soort van al opgegeten voordat ik tijd had om ze op de foto te zetten. Kom niet tussen mij en chocola.

Nogmaals hartelijk bedankt Rachael voor deze leuke winactie en de mooie prijs! Ik kan niet wachten om deze producten hier te reviewen.

      I had just spend three hours in a car and had to make a hard decision between attempting dinner or eating chocolate…no brainer.

    Wow, what an awesome prize! πŸ˜€ It’s always so much fun to try new brands. NYX is a really fun brand – I hope they become easier to find in Europe!

      Thanks, it was a great prize. NYX is getting a little easier as I can now order it online, but there is nothing like an actual counter.

      Amsterdam looked lovely as well, if I like Copenhagen I might have to get that and some more shades (A) xo

    How exciting that you won a prize! I love NYX soft matte lip cream – they have some fantastic colors and the texture is wonderful. It’s a bit drying but I just apply lip balm on top of it and it goes from matte to glossy.

        Ooh I’m not sure…I haven’t used them in awhile because my lips have been pretty dry lately. I have a couple bright pinks and a bold red!

          nice! My lips are horrendous as well at the moment, must be the changing seasons.
