Giveaway and Blog Update - Please read!!

I've just found out that I will be away when my Giveaway ends, so it will now end on the 25th March 2010 and the winner will be drawn on the 26th March 2010.

Huge, HUGE thank you to all those who have entered so far - I wish you all good luck! :D

I am currently having heaps of problems with my laptop so am unable to post as much as I'd like to - sorry about that. :( It's really annoying and making me realise just how much I depend on it!
Definitely seems like it's on it's way out, so I've been trying to back up everything - thank goodness for external harddrives, I really don't know what I'd do without it.
Once I get this laptop sorted out, I hope to be blogging a lot more - got heaps of reviews coming up and more giveaways since this one has been so successful!! :D

Thank you all again, and remember, now you only have until the 25th March 2010 to enter my giveaway.

The lovely Lisa nominated me for three blogger awards, how sweet is that?! Check out her awesome blog HERE!

Beautiful Blogger Award*:
1. Thank the blogger who gave you the award.
2. Put the award on your blog
3. Link the person who nominated you.
4. Share 7 ‘interesting’ facts about yourself.
5. Nominate 7 other bloggers

*I ♥ You! Award*:

3. Pass the award to 7 other blogs you've newly discovered
4. Remember to contact the bloggers you've nominated

7 Interesting Facts About Me
1. I hate, hate, hate, HATE tomatoes. But I love making tomato relish for my family. I”m getting into preserving/making jams and stuff. I’m such a Nana. :P
2. I love WWE. xD Randy Orton is one fine looking man. >_>
3. I have thought about doing youtube vids before, but every video I ever see of myself makes me cringe – my voice sounds crazy! Plus I wouldn’t be able to keep a straight face xD I admire those of you who do youtube vids – it takes a lot of guts!
4. I got really sick at the end of 2008 (with a massive airways infection and was in bed for like a month or two) and I still haven’t fully recovered from it. It left me with asthma and apparently air isn’t going all the way to the bottom of my lungs or something? It annoys me, I just wanna get healthy!!
5. I make a lot of different things – jewellery, softies/plushies, anything really! I’m also a huge baking fan and try to bake atleast once a week.
6. I don’t like Auckland. Infact, I hate it. I would MUCH rather live out in the country or something but I know Auckland is where the ‘money’ is. So I’ll stay here for now.
7. I love Fleetwood Mac and was lucky enough to see them live in concert last year!

Ok, now I would like to nominate the following bloggers for all 3 awards:

Review: Urban Decay Hall Of Fame


I love Urban Decay products, I wish more than anything that they were available here in New Zealand! Their stuff would sell like hot cakes here, I swear!

I was actually lucky enough to receive this set from Meg’s Makeup! How awesome is that?! Meg’s Makeup is a site where you earn points and then redeem them for prize packs. If you’d like to join up, leave me a comment below with your email and I’ll send you an invite!

But now, onto the review!
The Urban Decay Hall of Fame pack gives you a chance to sample 5 of their best products.
First up is the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in the XL size.


I have used and reviewed this before and even though I find that the packaging is poorly designed, as you can’t reach all the product with the wand, it is still one of my favourite eyeshadow bases. Eyeshadow just sticks to this like glue and refuses to budge! If you find that your own eyeshadow still creases when using this, then in all honesty you are probably using far too much. You only need the tiniest amount! A little goes a long way.

Next up is the New Skyscraper Multi Benefit Mascara


This includes the actual full size brush, which is always a good thing, as then you get a real feel for the product.

I am actually in love with this mascara. It makes my eyelashes look almost fake! I so badly need the full size one as I’m almost out of this one and no other mascara I’ve tried so far even comes close to this. Highly recommend this product to anyone who has access to Urban Decay – you will not be disappointed!

Then comes the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero


Well it would be pretty fair to say that this is one of my new favourite eyeliners. It’s soft, it’s creamy and it’s waterproof!! Genius! It says on the site that it will not budge, I disagree – anything that is applied on the waterline will eventually move. But this IS very long lasting! If I had one of those star rating systems, I would give this 4.5 out of 5 stars! :P

Next is the Lipstick in Midnight Cowboy


I don’t really think much about this, it’s just a regular lipstick. Nothing special really! I do like the colour and how natural it is, but I probably wouldn’t buy it myself..

And lastly, the Pocket Rocket in Timothy


Oh man, these things just crack me up. I actually have a couple of full size ones (including this) so haven’t used this mini one at all. I seriously would buy a heap of these to give to all my friends, just because I know they’d think they’re hilarious! As well as being funny, they’re also useful too! The gloss seems more slick than sticky and they come in the cutest colours. Timothy is a coral colour with a pink glow – just gorgeous! Do you need these? Probably not. But do you secretly want one? Of course you do! xD

Overall I love this pack and if you have a spare $20 USD then you should definitely get your hands on one for yourself. Great value for money!

That brings us to the end of this review, I hope you enjoyed it!
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway!
Thanks for viewing!
