My Favorite Things Giveaway!

Friends, I’ve partnered with Citrine Natural Beauty Bar and am so excited about this specific giveaway because it truly includes my very favorite things.

Citrine has generously offered to provide 2 of the following Glam Bags for 2 lucky winners.

Included in each bag:

Ilia Lip Conditioner in Blossom Lady – this is my go-to, in-my-purse-24-7 lipstick. A beautiful, creamy muted pink that would look good on all skin tones.

Rituel de Fille Creme Blush in Lovesick – Again with the 24/7 – I wear this blush erry damn day. If you’ve seen a photo and thought, “she has such a pretty flush,” it’s this blush. I promise.

2 Beauty Chef Glow Sachets – A super-food beauty blend packed with antioxidants and probiotics.

1 Beauty Dust Moon Juice Sachet – Supple skin and shiny hair. Enough said!

A deluxe sample of the Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser – This is the first thing that goes on my face in the morning. Leaves me fresh-faced and dewy, and it’s a must-have.

Deluxe samples of the Jane Iredale Black Ice Mascara and Lash Conditioner – Put a little bit of the conditioner on your lashes before applying the Black Ice mascara, and your peepers will look gooooood.

This giveaway ends Sunday night, so get to it! See how to enter below.
