Product Review and GIVEAWAY!

I LOVE Makeup!
But, I'm also on a budget.  Many women love expensive makeup, Bobbie Brown, MAC, Urban Decay, etc. and that is great (I'd love to be able to buy whatever I wanted from Sephora) but not everyone can or wants to blow their paycheck on stuff you wash off every night.  After experimenting with expensive brands, super cheap brands and everything in between, I found a relatively inexpensive way to get my eyes to POP!
*Cue Kate Hudson with her perfect everything*
 ALMAY Intense I-Color
If you aren't familiar, they enhance your natural eye color and leave little (or none really) room for error.

I have all 3 kits (Smokey, light reflecting, and original) that coordinates with my green eyes.  Depending on time of day, where I am (work, play or home) I will wear the kit that fits.  ALMAY also makes matching eyeliner, and mascara to give you the total look.

From experience, they don't crease, they don't fade, and they stay on all day...really.  The mascara give me full and long lashes (I was blessed with great lashes anyways, but I still love this stuff) and the liner is so smooth.  It is available in a self sharpening pencil and a liquid.

The whole system will run you about $24 (1 shadow kit, 1 liner, and 1 mascara).  But, with the GIVEAWAY, it's yours for FREE!  What is great is that you can buy different shadow kits  later that still coordinate with the liners and mascaras.

So, to the GIVEAWAY!
