Cosmetics & Beauty News November 2009

Bianca's Beauty Blog's first giveaway
Skin MD Natural have kindly offered to give away a full size bottle of their Shielding Lotion, which I have also been sent and will be reviewing soon. It promises to serve as a makeup base and all-over face and body moisturiser to soothe skin conditions and send dry skin packing. Full of good stuff like arnica and camomile, it should moisturise and heal without irritation, especially since it is also free of parabens and is hypoallergenic. And you can win it for free just in time for the harshest winter months :)

To win, go to the Skin MD Naturals website ( and have a look around, and then email me 50 words on why you deserve to win and how this product will benefit you, along with your name and address and with "Skin MD Natural Giveaway" in the subject line. Entries close on December 15th 2009. Good luck!

Be a winter warmer
Following its launch in the UK earlier this year, Jergens is now searching for a Winterless Weather Forecaster. By logging onto, and following their 'enter today' link, you can win daily prizes as well as being in with a chance to win a cash prize when entries close in January. Just upload a video explaining your tips to help keep skin looking soft, beautiful and 'winterless' throughout the year.

Happy Birthday to Nars
Makeup brand Nars is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a celebrity portrait book, entitled 15x15. Available exclusively at until December 15 as a limited edition, François Nars has made up, styled and photographed 15 celebrity subjects including Marc Jacobs and Naomi Campbell, and is donating all of the book's $80-price-tag proceedings to charities chosen by the celebrities.

Strange and beautiful
Liberty is launching a new nail varnish collection in time for Christmas, inspired by a spectrum as varied as Oscar Wilde and dark purple ink. Sold in collections of eight at £45 a collection, this should make a great value present this holiday season.
