This powder is so visually appealing you may not ever want to use it! It's part of MAC's new Naked Honey line, so no wonder it has a honeycomb pattern on the powder. Golden nectar is the perfect way to describe the color. It's pretty sparkly, so be forewarned! This normally sells for $24.50 at department stores, but it's free here to the first person to leave an e-mail address.
I don't know if I like the bottle or the polish more. The bottle is made of thick glass, while the polish is a nude-ish shade with a lovely gold tint. This was part of Estee Lauder's summer golden goddess line. The polish retailed for $18. Free to the first person to leave an e-mail address.
If you've ever used anything from Redken's All Soft line, you know it's good stuff that does wonders to soften thick, unruly hair. This 5-ounce bottle normally sells at salons and other stores that carry Redken for $16, but it's free to the first person to leave an e-mail address.
I'm not too sure how well this blush system works. But the color is just gorgeous. Not too overpowering. Perfect for daily use. And it's by Clinique.
At department stores, it sells for $21.50. Free to the first one to leave an e-mail address!
This may actually be a repeat freebie (we get lots of goodies from Ecotools). But it's still a good one. This brush is made from recycled aluminum and has cruelty free hair (synthentic taklon bristles). It has a compact design, so it's perfect for travel.
Normally, it costs $9.99 in drugstores. Free to the first person to leave an e-mail address!
Since it's my last day at the N&O, I thought we would have a little fun with a slew of freebies that have been piling up at my desk. Keep checking back throughout the day ... there's plenty of good stuff that has to go! (Make sure to leave an e-mail address and then check your e-mail today so I can mail it to you before I head out!)
For those who love all things pink, this MAC Perfectly Unordinary Dazzleglass lip gloss definitely lives up to its name. Pretty, pretty bubble gum pink with a lot of pearl. And it's a MAC lip gloss. What more can I say? People swear by the stuff.
Dazzleglass lip glosses typically retail in department stores for $18. But it's free to the first person to tell me what the main fashion story was about in the N&O on Monday. Don't forget to leave an e-mail address.
Just in time for the coming cooler weather ... today's freebie is perfect for those DIY nail folks who like their hands to smell pretty post-mani.
The Essie Smoothies Trio gift set has three 2 fluid-ounce bottles of hand and body lotion in fruity scents: blueberry and banana, coconut and pineapple and pomegranate and mango.
The set usually costs $12 at beauty stores that carry Essie products.
But they are free here. Just be the first to tell me one of the six new Essie nail colors for fall AND leave your e-mail address.
Because I have been enjoying Project Runway so much this season, it's the perfect time for this freebie (although I missed Michael last night). It's the new Very Hollywood fragrance from my very favorite Michael Kors. The perfume is said to have notes of mandarin, gardenia and vetiver. Which really just means this perfume is sweet and somewhat seductive. Probably best for night-time use.
It sells at stores for $45 an ounce for the spray. This is a very generous oversized sample bottle (not the fancy kind on the stuff that's in the stores). It's free to the first person who can tell me Michael's real name AND leave me an e-mail address to find you.
(Sorry for the delay on the freebie today ... technical difficulties with the N&O blogging software!)
This is yet another product in Aveeno's growing Positively Radiant line. It's supposed to remove make-up without over-drying. Soap free. Oil free. Has soy extracts, which help with evening skin tone and texture.
Cost is about $9 at drugstores. Free here to the first person who posts their e-mail address (so I can find you) AND can tell me the company that owns Aveeno.
