How about a makeup rah-rah for our Olympic athletes? Vasanti Cosmetics is all about that with their newest makeup palette, Go Canada! ($40), which gleams with metallic gold, silver, and bronze shadows, a white higlighter and sheer red lip colour. Gargi Patel, head makeup artist for the Canadian company, says to layer the gold over the silver on the lid, hit the crease with the bronze, highlight browbones and inner corner of eyes with the shimmery white, dust a little bronze atop cheekbones, and finish with the red tint on the lips.
You wanna try? Think you'd also like to try Vasanti's Eye Wonder ($42)? It's full of peptide-y and botanical goodness to foil wrinkles and dark circles. And how about a Vasanti Tinted Lip Balm ($15) in the shade you like best? Guava scented and super sheer, it gives lips a subtle sheen of colour as it moisturizes with shea and mango butters as well as olive, sunflower and meadowfoam seed oils -- I've been a fan for years. Actually, Vasanti's vitamin E-enriched Lip Shine ($15), of which I'm a new fan, is also trÃ©s hydrating and comfortable on lips without a whit of sticky. Wanna try one of those, too, in a colour you get to choose?
Wow, lucky for you Vasanti's on board with sharing $112-worth of pretty with you in exchange for getting your name drawn in a BeautyGeeks giveaway. If you're a reader with a Canadian address, you'll want to subscribe for regular BeautyGeeks updates if you haven't already, then send a CANADA! e.mail to email@example.com to provide your name, age, delivery address and telephone number. And you'll want to do that by the end of Saturday December 19th, after which a name will be drawn at random from the entries.
Nice to be all rah-rah Canada, eh?
