Post valentines, knock knock…

Hello hello guys,who said love ends with one day. Love is in the air all year round so I teamed up with Pauline cosmetics(a Kenyan cosmetic brand) to ensure that this is the case. We can never get enough gifts especially if it has to do with make up. No red shades of lipsticks are ever enough right? Anyway,if your valentine’s weekend didn’t go as planned,we are here to put a little smile on your face because you deserve it. Even if it went really well,why not continue to spread the love and joy all over with new items as well? sounds like a plan? it sure does! With this giveaway TWO people stand to win lipsticks,mascaras,two in one lip glosses and eye shadows, not to mention a professional photo shoot! how cool is that?

pauline cosmetics make up gift box

Mocha,posh pink,red wine and mahrun 5 in that order


With POSH PINK LIPSTICK,the outcome highly depends on your skin tone as well.The shade is true to colour and intense in light skinned women while it features a purple under tone with dark skinned girls

posh pink lipstick

RED WINE LIPSTICK is my favorite no questions asked.The more layers you apply the brighter it gets so it really depends on the time of day and what You are wearing

red wine lipstick

MOCHA LIPSTICK is my new favorite.It camouflages with my skin so beautifully I can’t even deal πŸ™‚


MAHRUN 5 is a good one for the office,not too loud not too subtle… It might not really blend well with my skin tone when I apply a lot of it but just two applications really looked good

    This is super awesome and kind of Pauline Cosmetics. I would really love to win this give away coz last week I tried 2 give aways courtesy of Pauline Cosmetics and I didn’t win any..:-( and being a new blogger I have always wanted to do a professional phototshoot but they are too damn expensive so getting an opportunity like this would be the best thing to ever happen to me..*crossed fingers*

    Hey Mo,I’d like to win cos I’m not one who’s used to doing makeup(apart from lipstick) and I’d want to expand my lipstick collection as well as stock up with the other makeup! Plus rocking a Kenyan brand would be great for me!
    I haven’t gone for a shoot in a long time,it will also be a nice experience.
    Thank you!!

    Hello darling, I am applying to win, all steps followed. The main reason is, this will be an awesome valentines gift considering I never got 1, also I follow your page like a book and lastly, I have been meaning to go shop for a 2015 makeup stock BUT work has been soo busy lately and time has been scarce to even run and shop, I have been in and out on projects and I believe that this will come along way especially when I need a quick fix to run into a meeting. Thank you for your consideration.!

    i would love to win because i categorically believe that the beauty of a person lies on the inside that’s the heart,this aspect should also be reflected on the outside thus being beautiful on the inside and out. By wearing Pauline’s cosmetics i will be able to bring out my inner beauty to the outside with confidence. Confidence in any woman is the icing on any beauty cake,i will be able to inspire, advice, educate and be a role model to many through this beauty products as i recently turned 25 years old!!!

    I would like to win because I’m in the process of re-discovering and appreciating myself as a strong, beautiful woman. Re-learning to be confident in my own skin and owning my mistakes and experiences and letting them make be a better woman, wife and mother. Winning this giveaway will help me look radiant, sexy and confident as I go through this journey. Thank you!

    Thank you both Maureen and Pauline cosmetics for this opportunity.
    This is just what I need to lift my spirits today. I would really love to win these cosmetics to start off my makeup journey,I know I need that shoot too cause it comes with the actual makeup experience from professionals. For the longest time I’ve been trying to do makeup and I just can’t get it right. Plus I’ve tried other Pauline giveaways last week and didn’t win,still won’t give up. Thanks.
