As promised, the winner for this giveaway is.... Kristin!  Congratulations!!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful V day full of love with not only their partners, but also their friends and family. As we say in Spanish, this day is about "amor y amistad" - love and friendship.

I mentioned in my last post that I would be posting a product review for Madison Street Beauty and here it is.
Also, one lucky winner will get their very own mineral eyeshadow from Madison Street Beauty - the same shade that I'm reviewing here: 100% Vegan Mineral Eyeshadow in Champagne
It's hard to photograph how much this shadow shimmers

I have been using this eyeshadow for a few months now.  I have always loved mineral eyeshadows because they seem to give very nice, even coverage without losing their color throughout the day or night and they don't bunch up in the crease of your eyelid.  This champagne eyeshadow is perfect to use alone, underneath or on top of another color.  It is very shimmery, light and easy to apply.  The color is a subtle transparent gold, but it will change depending on if you use it on its own and what color skin tone you have.  You can use various types of brushes, but I like to apply it first with a flat, round brush and then at the very end apply another dusting of it with a blender brush.  I highly recommend that you use moisturizer or an eyeshadow primer or base before you put any shadow on your lids.  This will help with coverage and lasting power.  For even more shine, you can take a little bit of the eyeshadow and mix it with a tiny bit of water.  Then apply it over your lid and you will notice that it is even more shimmery.  I also have a couple of other shades of eyeshadow from Madison, but I use this shade the most because of its versatility.  These shadows are also great because they are natural, hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin, chemical free and not animal tested.  Two thumbs up, 5 stars and sign me up for a lifetime supply!!

I'm wearing it here with no other makeup or eyeshadow

Winners will be picked at random, and entries are valid only for United States residents. The deadline for this giveaway is February 10th, 2012 at 11:59pm (PST). Winner will be announced right here on this post on February 14th. Good luck everyone!!
