GIVEAWAY: M.A.C and Benefit Giveaway – NOW OPEN!

To celebrate my Facebook page DANEE SUNSHYNE MAKEUP ARTIST hitting 200 likes recently, I’m running a big free juicy giveaway! Woo hoo!

I’d like to take this opportunity to bestow much gratitude and cosmic kisses to all of you who have supported my page since its inception in late 2011. As you know all things must start small and I’ve been slowly building my readership up over the last 12 months.  It’s very exciting to me to reach 200 likes and I’m humbled and very honoured to each and every single one of you. Thank you.


So to celebrate, I’m giving away a special prize pack to ONE LUCKY READER! Some beautiful goodies from cult global brands M.A.C and Benefit could be all yours- for nothing!

Here’s the loot:



1 x MAC Prep and Prime Beauty Balm (BB Cream) SPF 35 in Shade NW 25. 30ml (full size)  RRP $30

If you have yet to dive into the realm of beauty balms (BB cream), in a nutshell they are one major multi-tasking face product that imparts skincare benefits, along with concealing/foundation and moisturiser qualities.  There are many on the market, literally hundreds, and the choices are virtually limitless. I’ve had varied success with a few different brands and they are a great lightweight alternative to richer and thicker foundations when you want to give your skin a bit of a break, but still want some coverage. This one by MAC works best as a face primer, alone or underneath a tinted moisturiser. Its  soft, sheer shade of yellowed beige with soft shimmer-sheen. Lightly tinted in a nearly sheer beige tone to work on an array of complexions, it creamily re-texturizes the skin with the added bonus of high everyday UVA/UVB SPF 35 defense.


benefit lip plump

1 x Benefit Lip Plump. 7.0g Net. RRP $22

The brainchild of twin sisters Jean and Jane Ford, Benefit specialise in quick-fix products for beauty dilemmas.  Benefit thrives on a quirky sensibility—a “laughter is the best cosmetic” policy that’s an extension of the founders’ own lighthearted approach to life.  If you haven’t yet experienced Benefit for yourself, now is your chance to indulge in some of their cute-as-pie products with the irreverent names, feelgood philosophy and retro-styled, creative packaging.

For full, sexy lips use lip plump before lipstick. This neutral-toned lip enhancer helps to smooth and fill in fine lines while building up the contour of the lips, making them appear fuller and younger. This is the original lip plump since 1995! Contains jojoba oil, known to smooth and soften skin.



M.A.C Cream Colour Base (Colour Cream) in ‘Movie Star Red’ 3.2g Net. RRP $20

M.A.C’s creamy smooth cream blushes have reached near cult-status over the world and with good reason : they are so versatile, easy to apply, and they pack a punch.  Guaranteed to brighten up yours eyes, cheeks and lips.  Their smooth, lightweight consistency means that with a light hand you can layer these up to build intensity. Just a tiny amount will give you a sheer hint of tint, or build the layers for a more intense pop of colour.  It takes the tiniest dab on cheeks and blends really well.  It has great staying power! The color has a much more magenta/pink hue than red and that is what makes it great for the cheeks.  It is truly reminiscent of that beautiful old 30’s/40’s blush shade that all the actresses of the day wore.  Works for a variety of skin colors from light to deep. Add a tiny dab on the lips and you’ll look like Botticelli’s Venus.


I’m sure you’ll agree these products are all very lovely and much coveted and I’m thrilled to be giving them away to one of you to enjoy!
