On a bad day there is always lipstick

As you begin to get to know me through my blog you will learn to know that I love entering competitions. I have been lucky enough to win prizes such as dresses, make up, perfume and London Fashion Weekend tickets. However, the best competition I have won by far is one that I never expected too.

In the beginning of the year, Superdrug ran a joint competition with GOSH Cosmetics to win either your own lipstick or nail varnish - one winner for each product. To enter the competition, participants had to snap a picture of a colour they loved and upload it to Instagram with whether they would prefer that colour to be in lipstick or nail varnish form.


This is the picture I submitted as I loved the hot pink! 

My picture was selected by both Superdrug and GOSH Cosmetics representatives to then be posted on Superdrug's Facebook page along with other finalists to be voted for by the public. The picture with the most 'likes' in 24hrs would win. I won! *eeeeek*

I was so excited that a lipstick would be produced under my name and in the colour that I had selected. Of course, I am a little biased but I absolutely LOVE my lipstick and wear it regularly! GOSH had sent me a hamper full of GOSH goodies and once my lipstick had been produced, they then sent me my own lipstick before it was released on sale. My lipstick 'Ellen' is available in Superdrug stores nationwide.
