Giveaway! Sigma Beauty Make Me Crazy Brush Kit and FOTD

FOTD! It's been a while hasn't it? :)
I've been religiously using my Clarisonic with a sample of a Clarin's cleanser, and my skin has really improved. I usually have some dryness / skinflakes all that glam stuff, but I haven't had much of any problems with eczema since I've been using my Clarisonic! It's worth every penny. If you're on the fence about it, get it!

I also apply Bio Oil (morning on days I don't go anywhere, or at night before bed), and Dr. Brandt's Pore No More, Pore Effect face cream.
My necklace is by Tiffany's...I have the matching earrings somewhere!
Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs is a new favorite. :D
I've been using the MUFE HD Elixir as a base for my make up.
I think this Elixir really smooths out the surface of my skin. It feels amazing!
Lashes by Sonia Kashuk (find them at Target).

Majolica Majorca eyeshadow palette, a beautiful gift from my dear friend Lara. :)

The EOTD, eye of the day for those unfamiliar with the acronym.
These falsies really glam up the eyes!
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin (shimmer).
MAC Mineralized Blush in Hang Loose.
The purple is more of a highlight shade. I should have been more thoughtful when I was picking out this blush. I should have grabbed one that had more pink than the purple!
Canmake Cheek Gradation Highlight was a gift from my friend Lara from Malta.
Thank you Lara! ^_^
I really like Canmake products! I wish they were easier to find in the USA.
I used Cargo Pressed Powder (#30) and Cargo Bronzer on top of my Chanel Mat Lumiere #40 Beige.
I love Cargo products, I just hate the packaging of these Blu_ray powders.
They're almost impossible to open without breaking a nail or denting your nail polish. Ugh!
I picked up one of the newer Sonia Kashuk Pointed Eyeliner Brushes from Target and used it for the first time. I really liked it!
I really like trying new eyeliner brushes. For some reason, I find that I like most of the new ones I try more so than my MAC angel brushes. I will be posting those for sale in my blog sale soon.
MAC Graphblack Technakohl Eyeliner, and MAC Blitz & Glitz Fluidline.
I used the Technakohl for my water line, and the sparkly black fluidline on my lash line.
I finally got my hands of MAC Kissable Lipcolour! This one is in Vanity Fair.
I used a little on top of the lipstick I was wearing.
MAC All Styled Up Lipstick!
(Nails: Zoya "Pippa")
If you love Lancome Definicils Mascara, you will love MUFE Smoky Lash.
It's a dryer formula, but it coats every lash beautifully. : ) I have the waterproof version too, but I would suggest trying the regular Smoky Lash first. :D

And the beautiful brushes that I used for this entire look.
These have been my favorite brushes to use from the Sigma Drive Me Crazy Brush Set.
And I'm also going to be giving away this very set of brushes to one of you girls!
I believe it's a $99 value. :)
I've been using them as my main makeup brushes and I love them!
Their angled eyeliner brush is really good too!

    I wasn't entirely sure whether to put my answers to your questions on here as a comment, but I elaborated more in my post.

    1. I found you through all the raves that Youtube and bloggers were having on your DSK Jewelry line and found your beauty blog from there!

    2. I have heard so many wonderful things about Sigma, but have yet to try any.

    3. My favorite beauty products are bronzers, namely NARS Laguna and Chanel's Soleil de Tan cream bronzers.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. Beautiful FOTD by the way! You look so glowy! And I've been having the same flakiness on my skin...I've got an eye on the Clarisonic now :D

  16. Hey Stephanie! Thanks for this great giveaway and keep up with your great job! ^^

    My name is Diana and I’m from Quebec, Canada!

    Here's the link to my contest entry: http://burgundyiscoquette.blogspot.com/2011/06/face-of-day-fotd.html

    1. I found your blog by searching on Google information about the Clear Cube’s Storages, similar to the ones the Kardashians own. Once I landed on your blog, I browsed through your posts and found that you are always updated when it comes to makeup products and I always find your posts really interesting b/c they are complete and a lot of pictures accompany the information given which I truly appreciate! ^^ Oh, and your dogs are a-do-ra-ble!

    2. Sadly no, not yet, the shipping is kind of expensive here. Therefore, if I win this contest, it will be my first set of Sigma brushes ever. In fact, I have heard really great reviews, either from your lovely blog, or other blogs and also on YouTube. I definitely need to give it a try!

    3. As of now, my favorite beauty product will certainly be eyeshadows, but more specifically the Chanel Taupe Grisé 87 eyeshadow which is an absolute unique taupy-purpuly-grey shade that I love despite the price (hihi)!

    Thanks again and...I want your skin!! It's sooo flawless!! I'm jealous! :)

    Answers to Questions:

    1. Tell me how you found me! : ) What brought you to my beauty blog?

    I actually found your blog through hollyannaeree from youtube. She was talking about DSK jewelry and I liked it so much. I looked at DSK jewelry website and found your beauty blog too. I have been following your blog ever since. I like reading your blog because you live in Seattle! Such a weird reason I know, but I live in Seattle too, that’s why! lol xD I remember your posts about your apartment overlooking the Space Needle. It’s so pretty.

    2. Do you currently own any Sigma brushes?

    I have 1 sigma brush, which is the ss224 blending brush and I love it!!

    3. What is your favorite beauty product?

    My favorite beauty product would be mascara. It makes such a huge difference to my eyes.

    My name is Tannie, and I currently live in Seattle

    Thank you for the giveaway!!

  19. Steph! Thanks for doing this lovely giveaway! Actually got me to post another blog entry... the last one I put up was back in March (oops!) :P

    Anyways, my name is Reggi and I live in San Diego, CA.

    Here's a link to my blog post:

    1. I'm pretty sure I was first linked to you through Fuz because she had purchased a beautiful necklace from you and I wanted one for my 1st engagement shoot! :) and... the rest is history!

    2. I don't own any Sigma brushes but would love a set! I keep seeing all these beauty bloggers write about them and vlog about them! AHHH!! i want! :)

    3. My favorite beauty product, which probably isn't even a beauty product, is lip balm. Reason being, I don't wear makeup on a daily basis but I always need lip balm. My lips constantly are chapped and/or peeling so I keep lip balm in all of my purses and at work as well! My HG lip balm is actually your HG (thanks for blogging about it!) - the aquafina original lip balm. (though I'm having a hard time finding it anywhere.. can only find it at Walmart but it's in a pack with the flavored ones which don't work as well...)

  20. Love your FOTD, that is such a pretty pink lip :) This is a great idea for a giveaway, I've been loving checking out all the other entries! Such gorgeous readers you have :)

    Here is my entry:

    1. Tell me how you found me! : ) What brought you to my beauty blog?

    I was searching for Asian beauty bloggers that had reviews on Asian products. I loved your beautiful photography style and your FOTDs/reviews so I followed :) Then I saw your jewelry site and I was hooked!

    2. Do you currently own any Sigma brushes?

    No, I didn't even know the brand until I saw a few bloggers posting about them. I would love to try them!

    3. What is your favorite beauty product?

    My favourite product is my BB cream! I love how it makes my skin look and helps my blemishes. I also can't live without lip balm, at the moment I'm loving tokidoki lip gelato which is a balm/gloss/stain hybrid.

  21. Hi Steph! First of all, I just want to say once again how much of a fan I am of your blog. I've been quietly following and admiring your blog for the past two years now! I simply can't live without it! Thank you so much for creating this contest! This has enabled me to step out of my shell and finally post a long overdue FOTD look on blogger!

    1. I've been following you for the past two years now (not exactly sure when). How I came across to your blog? I'm not really sure. I think I was blog-hopping from one blog to another and just stumbled across yours and instantly fell in love! I loved the fact that you still talked about school and your personal life aside from makeup. At the time I was still a high school student I was always interested in hearing about your experiences in college, especially as a business student! I love how your blog is more than just a beauty and makeup blog, and that you do discuss other matters such as bankruptcy and all of the business aspects behind owning/starting up your own business and living in Seattle! Also, I must say that it was because of you that I was first introduced to Hollyannaeree, whom I also love!

    2. Unfortunately I do not currently own any Sigma brushes. Although I have thought about purchasing some buffer/foundation brushes soon since I've heard so many positive things about them.

    3. My favorite beauty product would have to be my Rimmel eyebrow pencil! I simply cannot live without having my eyebrows filled in! A look is simply not finished without having my brows done. I can go without eyeshadow, blush, lipgloss, etc. but whenever I'm wearing foundation, I absolutely have to fill in my brows! I already have such thin (hair) brows that it just looks weird without filling them in.
