Video – Beauty Bulletin GHD competition

I’m a sucker for these video competitions – not really for the prizes but more for the creativity needed to make these videos. My most recent entry is for the GHD competition. The rules are that you have 3 minutes (max) in which to do a hair tutorial and you must use the words GHD and Beauty Bulletin in your review.

It was difficult to make it a 3 minute video, but I’d say I got it right. 🙂 Hopefully I’ll have a GHD soon!

Besides the hairspray inhalation, I’m OK 😀

Video – Avon Ultra Glazewear absolute lipgloss review for Beauty Bulletin

A couple of weeks ago I received two Avon Lip glosses from Beauty Bulletin to try out. I signed up to do a video and written review and thought I’d get the video out of the way first.

Not my best work, but it’s still OK. Enjoy!

Avon’s Ultra Glazewear Absolute Lipgloss SPF15

I got these two Avon lippies from BB to try out snap.

Pic Monkey AvonIt’s been a while since I got a private message from Kelly A and I know when I get anything from her, it’s usually good. It’s so awesome and fated too, because I’ve developed a serious lippie fetish over the last couple of weeks which was fueled by my Glamour winnings – a Beyond Juicy by Yardley.

I love that the Avon lippies make you look good while it protects you from harmful UV rays! They’re also packed with crazy nourishing ingredients like Shea butter and Vitamin C and it promises full bodied colour that “packs a punch”.

So, I’m off to work on my video review of these awesome lippies… I’m just trying to wrap my head around how I’m gonna make it stand out. Why? Because the best video review gets a year’s supply of Avon products AND a pink makeup organiser… and um…. Yeah… I need that.

Beauty Bulletin – Shoot share and win

I’ve been a Beauty Bulletin member for just about a year now. I’ve loved every minute of it. Mostly for the opportunity to win stuff and get freebies but the more I spent time on the site, the more I fell in love with the COMMUNITY part of it.

It’s basically a special place for ladies to share beauty tips and chat a little. As I watched the other ladies’ videos I copped a tear because they perfectly articulated exactly how I felt about Beauty Bulletin.

I never made videos – EVER. I hate looking at myself and I hate the sound of my voice. Now I shoot videos on the regular and my confidence has skyrocketed – um… not that I’m full of it.

Beauty Bulletin… If you’re reading this… I hope you know that you’ve changed the lives of countless women! We owe so much to you. Thank you for the awesome prizes and give aways and we hope you grow from strength to strength.

Here’s my video. Little bit upset about it coz the stupid thing cut away the music and blonde me loaded the wrong one now I can’t load the right one… anyways

I won I won I won

Hey Gals… so, I don’t know if you remember that awful video I submitted for the Katy Perry Killer Queen competition (Beauty Bulletin)… but … I WON!! Well, I’m thinking I’m one of the winners… ain’t no way in hell I out video’ed my friend Naeema Ajam:

Now tell me this isn’t good… then I’ll call you a filthy liar!

Now, on it’s way to me is this pretty girl

pretty girlHappy day!! Thank you so much Beauty Bulletin! You have no idea how badly I wanted this!!



It’s been slightly quiet on the Hipstyler, Pretty & Ginger front LATELY, but I have good excuses for
my absence. One of them being that I never pass up the opportunity to enter a competition to win a fragrance and seeing as I was chosen as one of the lucky BB reviewers to be part of the first ever Beauty Bulletin Royalty review club I HAD to do a little effort.

You can check out my video review of the new Killer Queen fragrance by Katy Perry here.

All evidence to the contrary, I have spent a significant amount of time on this video, lost it and had to start all over again. It didn’t help that my video making skills are “Entry level” to say the least and that I had to struggle all the way through it again! The plus side of being an idiot at something is that you can only get better…. Right?

But this is just part of the reason for the lack of posts and I’ll give you the scoop as we go along. For now, just enjoy this stupid video.
