Beat the January blues with free Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipsticks in Ruby Tuesday!

Apparently, Monday is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year.  Perhaps because it's still so cold, perhaps because the shine has worn off the Christmas presents, and perhaps (definitely in my case) because that Christmas weight is still stubbornly clinging on.

Max Factor are rather charmingly giving away free Colour Elixir lipsticks in Ruby Tuesday to pep up your Monday - the only catch is that you'll need to be travelling through London's Liverpool Street station, or Manchester's Piccadilly Station to nab one.  I can't believe it was 2011 when the Colour Elixir range was first released - Ruby Tuesday was one of the stand out shades for me then, with it's bold classic red tone, comfortable texture and brilliant wear time.

The Max Factor team will be handing out lipstick from 7.30AM - first come first served, and unsurprisingly there's a limited supply available, so if you fancy a free lipstick to start your week off, be there early!

WIN! Too Faced The Return Of Sexy Palette

I purchased and reviewed Too Faced's rather beautiful The Return Of Sexy palette a couple of months back, and then received another one from the brand's PR this week.  What to do with the brand new palette?  Give it away to you guys of course!

I'm running this competition through Rafflecopter, and basically if you tweet about the competition, follow me on Twitter, or like my Facebook page, you'll get one entry.  If you do all three, you get three entries.  The winner will be chosen by random selection after the competition closes on Friday 29th October.  Good luck!

LBR giveaway! 10 sets of Sheer Blonde John Frieda shampoo and conditioner

We've been given 10 sets of John Frieda's Sheer Blonde shampoo and conditioner to share with our readers. Hooray for blondes!

10 readers will each be sent a 250ml Everlasting Blonde Colour Preserving Shampoo and a 250ml Everlasting Blonde Colour Preserving conditioner.

The products are designed to preserve the look and feel of newly coloured blonde hair - so they're best for bottle blondes. Hand on heart, I can't vouch for them myself, being a brunette, but I have 2 bottles of my own here and they both smell delightful and look very nice. They retail for around £6 each.

How to enter:

  • Please leave a comment before 00.00 GMT on 15 June 2013
  • In the comment, tell us how many bottles of shampoo and conditioner you currently have on the go. (Mine is about 5 sets, which makes cleaning the bath a hassle.)
  • Include a way for us to get in touch with you (this is so we can find out your address to send the products. They'll be sent direct from John Frieda's PR company. It can be your email, blog link, Twitter handle, whatever you will be checking regularly.)
  • We'll choose 10 responses at random after the giveaway closes. (NB your answer is just for fun. This is not a competition for how many products you use in parallel. If it was we'd probably win it ourselves.)

Good luck!

Groupon giveaway - win £40 to spend on


It's been a while since we did a giveaway, but hopefully this £40 windfall for one lucky reader will make up for it. Group voucher overlords Groupon are offering one of you £40 to spend on beauty deals, spas, products, haircuts, massages, manicures or whatever else you might like from their website.

To enter, 

  • Leave us a comment telling us what beauty-related product or service you'd most like to see on Groupon. (For example, I'd love to see a discount or GWP deal on Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette - imagine the stampede at Debenhams!)

You'll need to

  • be a follower of the blog, either on Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin'
  • provide a link to your website, Twitter or a note of your email address so we can contact you if you win

The giveaway will end on Wednesday 23 May at midnight GMT, when we'll pick a winner at random. If that's you, we'll put you directly in touch with Groupon who will send you your £40 voucher code.

In the meantime, why not take a look at the deals Groupon's got on at the moment?

Good luck!

Giveaway - win 10 Mavala polishes (chosen by us!)

We love a Mavala mini, we do. So affordable (less than £4 each), so high quality, so damn cute. Mavala are Switzerland's answer to amazing nails, and they're also a dab hand with colour for the eyes, lips and face. 

To celebrate the launch of the new UK Mavala website at, we've been asked to host a giveaway of our 10 favourite Mavala polishes. One winner will receive all the colours above, handpicked by Sarah and Gemma:

Las Vegas

Acid Yellow
Electric Green
Blue Curacao 

Marine Blue
Moon Grey
Pure (glitter)

The new site is live now, and features news, a full list of all the current collections, a monthly Blogger Spotlight showcasing Mavala's pick of the UK beauty blogs, and a cuticle-oriented agony aunt, Ask Jenny, who will answer all your nail-care dilemmas (or refer them to a member of the world-class Mavala nailcare team). 

The giveaway will run from now until Saturday 9 July at 12.00 midday GMT. Unfortunately this giveaway is only open to readers in the UK. To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us the answer to this question:

What is the name of the Mavala eyelash lengthening and strengthening treatment?

(Hint - you can probably find the answer you need at

Good luck!

PS - prizes are provided by Mavala and will be sent direct from Mavala to the winner after the giveaway has ended.

Free Leighton Denny nail polishes with July Harper's Bazaar

You can pick up one of 3 free Leighton Denny polishes with the July Edition of Harper's Bazaar, on sale now.

The colours are all from the regular line, rather than shades designed for the giveaway. They are;

  • Viva La Diva (a classic red creme) 
  • Supermodel (warm greige) 
  • Do Me A Flavour (a coral-orange creme from S/S11's Gelato collection)

The magazine costs £4.25, so even if you don't read it you're saving £6.75 on the RRP of £11 for each 12ml polish.

Free Clinique minis with April edition of Glamour magazine

To celebrate their 10th birthday, Glamour are giving away one of 10 mini Clinique treats (worth £80 in total) with each copy of the April edition of Glamour.

Look out for Fearne's smug chops (above) on the cover in your local newsagent. You can choose from the following:

Liquid Facial Soap 30ml (worth £1.95) 
Take the Day Off lip and eye makeup remover 30ml (worth £3.48) 
All About Eyes eye cream 5ml (worth £7.50) *
7 Day Scrub Rinse-off Formula 30ml (worth £5.10) 
Long Last Glosswear 2.3ml  (worth £5.37) 
Superbalm moisturising gloss 7ml (worth £6.07)
High Impact Mascara 4g  (worth £7.50)
Dramatically Different Moisturiser 30ml (worth £9) 
High Impact Lipstick full size (worth £15) *
Moisture Surge Thirst Relief moisturiser 30ml (worth £18) *

It's like your very own pick-and-mix Bonus Time, without having to buy three-products-one-to-be-skincare! You do have to buy a £2 magazine each time, but in most cases the product exceeds that in value. (And it's something to read on the train, isn't it?) I've starred the ones I've picked up myself. I especially recommend the eye cream, which even in this teeny quantity will last for ages. 

I'm sure that litterbins and recycling boxes all over Britain are groaning at the seams with unread copies of Glamour this week. The issue's on sale until 4th April, so don't hang about if you want to take advantage. 

I found out about this via MoneySavingExpert, who did the sums for the above values. (Obviously. I can't do sums.)
