***I had to go through and delete a bunch of comments on this post because they were negative and attacking others. I just don’t want that kind of negativity on a New Year’s giveaway. This giveaway was to give back and help you guys get inspired to reach your goals this year. Sorry it turned into something negative. 🙁

There are six different varieties of Bareminerals concealers from loose powders to liquid serums. All six options have at least 4 1/2 out of 5 stars in reviews, which is amazing. I have way too many concealers on-hand but I may still pick up the bareSkin Complete Coverage Concealer. The reviews gush about how it makes the undereye area look better because of the serum and how it doesn’t sit in fine lines, which is ideal. I’ve used their loose powder concealer when I was younger, with less to conceal LOL. It’s definitely a good product if you’re looking for lighter coverage.

I have plenty of eyeliner but I’ll be getting some of the IT Cosmetics No Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliners to try because the price is right and the gift with purchase is so good. It includes one of my favorite items, Brow Power, their universal eyebrow pencil. The eyeliner comes in 10 different shades: Black, Brown, Plum, Copper, Slate, Navy, Lucky Jade, Black/Brown, Silk Taupe and Highlight. I’m getting it in Black (because I go through black eyeliner like I go through a pack of donuts) and probably Silk Taupe and Highlight.

What I’m most excited about is the platinum member perk for the day, Becca’s Mineral Blush. I’ve never tried Becca’s blushes because $32 is pretty pricey but at $16, I’m going to give it a whirl. The color I’m definitely going for is Flowerchild. It looks like the perfect shade I’d reach for often, and many reviewers raved about it.

What are you guys picking up today?
