October Giveaway - LMB Turns 10

I'm really excited because I'm completely passionate about each of the prizes in this month. All three of them would come top in their categories for me: favourite lipstick, favourite gel liner and favourite liner brush.

The first is All Fired Up a retro matte lipstick from MAC and for me the perfect deep pink for those who want to wear a red lipstick but can't quite carry it off. It's long lasting and looks incredible and works well with a gloss over the top if a matte finish is not for you. I will be doing a quick review of this later in the month but in the meantime you can see and read my original review here

The Inglot AMC Gel Liner is a must for those who like their liner waterproof and long-lasting. It comes in a load of colours but of course for me it has to be as black and matte as possible. It's got a great, easy-to-apply and lasts all day. Another product to feature both in my pro and personal kits, I wrote a full review of it a while ago which you can read here.

And what better way to apply it than the Louise Young LY24B brush - this natural hair brush is ultra fine so great for precision work or those who want a really simple line close to the lashes. I love it so much I have one in my kit and one for myself. Thanks to Louise for sending this one to be included in the giveaway.

Daniel Sandler Radiant Glow Palette

Every time a trend kicks off all brands jump on the bandwagon and then Daniel Sandler comes up with the grown-up version. Want to try highlighting but don't want to look like a Christmas decoration? Then the Daniel Sandler Radiant Glow palette is a very good place to start.

Developed for eyes and cheeks you can either sweep this all over the face for a beautiful glow or across the tops of the cheeks for a subtle highlight. And what makes it a particular favourite of mine is that it's neutral peach tones mean it's perfect for anyone who may have redness but still wants to achieve a healthy glow.

You can select one of the four shades to use in specific areas - eye lids, inner corner or the top of the cheeks or you can swirl a fluffy brush around the quad and use as a blusher. The colours are beautifully blendable and buildable and universally flattering.

LMB Turns 10 - September Giveaway

A bit late this month because I was on holiday and completely forgot to organise anything before I went. Two kid and two dogs will do terrible things to your memory.

Two fantastic prizes this month. The first is the now cult Phyto 7 from Phyto Paris. This is a classic french pharmacy purchase from back in the day but now you can get it at lots of places online (it is to hair what Bioderma is for faces). For fine hair it's hard to find truly nourishing treatments that don't weigh it down and it's even rarer to find a really good treatment you can use on dry hair. This is it.

It's genuinely all you really need, treatment-wise for your hair. Most of us have products that we really like for volumising, nourishing etc but if I was told I could only have one treatment product for my hair this would be it. You can use it on dry hair to add moisture and revive it without it looking greasy (don't apply to the roots just the ends) or you can use it like a leave-in conditioner. It smells great, and it's silicone free so incredibly lightweight. Very good for those who's hair tends to frizz.

There will be a quick review for this coming up later in the month but for now here's my original review of it from 2012.

The next prize is the Urban Decay Illuminating balm which helps to minimise pores and wrinkles and is oil-free so great for those with a more oily skin. A fantastic skin perfector.

To be in with a chance of winning just follow me on YouTube and leave me a comment letting me know your YouTube username. I will pick a winner on 27th September 2016
