New Year Giveaway {Antipodes’ Lipsticks}

::Congratulations to the winners Lizzy (MyFoxyCorner) and Julia who got the lucky no.7 and no.28 respectively! The winners have now been contacted to arrange delivery. Thank you all!:: 
::This Giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly. Thank you all who participated and good luck!::

If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know (because I wouldn’t shut up about it here, here and here) I have recently been obsessing over Antipodes’ lipstick collections – Aroha Natural lipsticks (Remarkably Red, Dusky Sounds Pink and  Boom Rock Bronze) and Rock Your World lipsticks (Hit Me With Your Best Shot, April Sun in Cuba and Hungry Like the Wolf).

I’m not quite sure how this happened in such a short period of time but, in the space of a week I had three!

Antipodes' lipsticks - Remarkably Red, Hit Me With Your Best Shot and Dusky Sounds Pink

Antipodes’ lipsticks from left to right: Remarkably Red, Hit Me With Your Best Shot and Dusky Sounds Pink.

Before it starts sounding like I’m a cray make-up hoarder, let me stress that two of these are replacing my two regular lipsticks that have already come to an end (my Kiko Black Cherry) or will do so very soon (my Kiko Red Coral).



The third one, however, was a pleasant surprise. The folks down at Antipodes got in touch after I published the Party Ready outfit inspired by Hungry Like The Wolf. As a show of their appreciation for my work, they offered to send me a Hit Me With Your Best Shot lippy. How awesome was that?!

I was really excited and asked them if they’d be happy for me to use it on my first blog giveaway (yay! another blog milestone!). 

I thought it was an excellent opportunity for me to share with someone else a product that I am truly happy with. They were so nice, they sent me three instead!

So, lovely people, I now have two Hit Me With Your Best Shot lipsticks to share.

This is such a fun colour. I was a bit scared that it would be too pink for me. Instead, it just gives a nice pop of colour that is not too overwhelming.

To me it has Summer written all over it:
::The days at the beach::
To the beach!
 ::The nice walks in the warm afternoon::
Because it is Summer time down here!
::And the long Summer evenings out with friends:: 
Summer Nights

I know Summer is a far away dream for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere or cooler parts of the Southern Hemisphere, but see this as a nice warm hug from the sunny Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland’s Māori name).

  4. Hello! I love your blog and often come here for inspiration, especially because I’ve only just started wearing make up and need help with what goes with what. You’ve definitely made me braver and more confident! I love the first outfit because those shoes! Haha.I love yellow shoes! I also love a good stripe in classic navy and white, you can’t go wrong, and my wardrobe is somewhat of a woodland with small furry creatures inhabiting so the bag will fit right in. Plus I’m a beach baby at heart, you’ll never find me far from there in the summer.

  5. My favourite look is the second one because I think I have most of the things in that photo – especially numerous floaty, flowery dresses and golden sandals!

    Twitter handle is also laania. Would rather not give my Facebook/real-life name as I like to keep these separate – is there any other way of doing this?

  6. Love the middle .. walk in the afternoon .. outfit. My colours and love the gold sandals and clutch AND of course the lippy! facebook Julia Muir or juliamuir79

  7. I love the outfit in the middle because it is really bright and summer like. You can almost feel the warmth of the sun. (filipabento on instagram).

  8. Hi Rita,

    Omg The Hit Me With Your a Best Shot is amazingly gorgeous! I’ve not heard of this brand before but now that you mention them, where can I buy their products? I’m on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram and I hope I’ve not missed the closing of the competition.

    I prefer outfit 2 but I’m a sucker for Summer print dresses and skirts. I do like the others but 2 is my style.
