Pretty Palette for Eyes, Lips, & Cheeks ($60) is extremely versatile. It is filled with pink tones designed to create a healthy look because Bobbi believes that there is nothing more beautiful than a healthy-looking complexion. I found this palette at the Estée Lauder Company Store, and it did not come with the brushes. No matter.
Any woman who loves makeup and wants a clean, fresh, modern, and healthy look will proably have her own brushes!
The shades in the Pretty Powerful Palettes were
handpicked by Bobbi to flatter all complexions, from fair to dark. The
shadows are designed to instantly brighten and open up the eyes. The palette has a blush that creates a healthy, flushed look. The lip shades
look like the shade of our lips, but better.
The Pretty Palette
includes eye shadows in Ivory, Pink Flannel, Chocolate Caviar, along with Pink
Chiffon Shimmer Wash; a blush in Pretty Pink; a lip color in Sandwash Pink;
and lip glosses in Bubble Bath and Soiree Pink Glitter.
Here's how Bobbi Brown suggest you use it. Sweep the lightest eye shadow from lash
line to brow bone with an eye shadow brush. Dust one of the
medium eye shadows on the lower lid, from the lash line to the crease.
Use an ultra-fine eyeliner brush and the darkest eye shadow to line
eyes. Smile and dust the blush on the apples of the cheeks, blending up
toward the hairline, then downward to soften the color. After brushing on
lip color, top it with the lip gloss of your choice. Finish with two to
three coats of your favorite mascara.
I have one Pretty Palette, with its Pretty Powerful logo compact, to give away. How can you enter to win this giveaway contest (technically a
sweepstakes)? Just leave a comment on this feature (not in another BTiB
post). After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at
email@example.com (the contest address, not my
"personal" e-mail) and identify your comment. You can never be too
careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so
feel free to follow this step (an alternative is to code your e-mail,
e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment). Please make sure I
have your e-mail. If I can't notify you, you can't win - even if your number is drawn. I can't believe the number of entrants I haven't been able to find in the past.
You can earn extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail
subscription, GFC, or though one of the many Google readers - see
sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. If you are a follower,
it would help me tally entries if you tell me in your comment how
you follow. You don't have to follow to enter. I want everyone to
have a chance, but I also want to reward my followers. I must be
able to track this entry.

midnight. The next morning, I will use a random number generator

forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check
your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.
This contest is open to anyone anywhere. Here are the terms. I
will carefully pack and ship the prize (as I always do). I cannot
insure the prize for overseas shipment - it's amazingly expensive to do
so because of the way I have to send insured mail. If it's lost or
stolen in transit, I may not be able to replace it with another
prize just like it. I'll do my best on this end; let's see if your
mail service does right by you on the other end if we have an
