Giveaway Prize from Ulta & Essence

I hope you are enjoying your Tuesday! Two weeks ago, Ulta had a giveaway on Twitter featuring products from Essence's Breaking Dawn Part 2 Collection along with a shirt and bag. I was lucky enough to win. If you know how much I love Essence products and like Twilight, you can imagine my excitement. I received my prize in the mail today. I could not be happier with what I received (except to maybe have gotten an appropriately sized shirt).

The shirt and bag match, except for the back. The back of the shirt says "Every moment has let to this." The bag is nicer than I expected. A heavy weight canvas tote.

Edward's Love and Alice Had a Vision - Again. Both gorgeous! I already own both. I bought all four of the polishes when I saw the display. I have not tried Alice Had a Vision - Again yet.

Loose eye shadow pigments in A Piece of Forever, Alice Had a Vision - Again, Edward's Love, and Jacob's Protection. They mirror the names and colors of the polish. I cannot wait to try them, especially the gold. I love gold shadows!

Shimmer powder in Bella's Secret and blush in Renesmee Red. The shimmer powder looks very promising. I have heard the blush is gorgeous for Fall and Winter. I do not wear blush; I have a natural flush to my face. But I shall give Renesmee Red a try.

Two lipglosses in Renesmee Red and Alice Had a Vision - Again. The former looks close to my favorite colored lipgloss, Essence Kiss Kiss Kiss. It is my favorite red and the only one I've found that suits my complexion. Renesmee Red seems to be more sheer and has sparkle. Along with the lipglosses, there is one lipstick in A Piece of Forever. A gold lipstick. I am unsure about gold, but depending on the coverage, it has the potential to be gorgeous. Finally, a glitter eyeliner in Jacob's Protection. I have not tried liquid glitter eyeliner before. I am rather excited about wearing it. I shied away from blue shadows for years because it was once said that blue eyes and blue shadow do not go together. I've recently embraced trying blue shades and love them!

I received twelve of the fifteen products from the collection. The others are two polishes (A Piece of Forever and Jacob's Protection) and a glitter eyeliner (Alice Had a Vision - Again). The collection can be found in the US at Ulta stores. I am unsure what stores in other countries carry the collection.
