BECCA Ultimate Colour Gloss Giveaway

The last time I reviewed a lipgloss was November 2010. Not that there aren’t at least six tubes rolling around in my bag at any given time. It’s just been almost two years since anything moved me enough to write about it. I’ve also been on a lipstick kick since returning to Corporate America because I love the polished look of something more pigmented. Know what I mean? But like a good little beauty blogger I gave BECCA’s new Ultimate Colour Gloss ($24) a whirl. They’re this gorgeous hybrid of shiny-not-sticky gloss and bold, creamy lipstick. I don’t understand how this is possible.

Then there are these colors, irresistible in their crystal tubes like CANDY. I would honest to god wear every single shade. But my favorite is Miami Vice, the perfect peachy-pink nude I’ve been looking for all summer. It has just enough warmth to brighten up my skin instead of washing it out, so I can wear it even when this faux tan fades. It also inspired an entire Pinterest board.

And now for the fun. I’m giving away the entire set . . . Yesiree! Just leave your name and email below with YOUR favorite lip gloss. What else have I been missing out on? UPDATE: Congrats to our winner, Mary B.! 

p.s. BECCA is also giving away $150 shopping sprees for you Pinterest fanatics. To enter, create a board inspired by your favorite gloss shade (here’s mine)  and email the link to along with your First/Last Name, Address and Date of Birth. The contest ends Sept. 7. Get pinning!
