Beauty Gone Bad Winner!

We all have beauty gone bad stories and although my eye infection was not a fun experience, I thought it would be great to make light of the situation by having others share their bad experiences and win some beauty prizes! Ironic right? ;)

I also wanted to do a give away that would fall close to my birthday which I celebrated yesterday! I am so thankful for all my awesome readers, some who I have had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you to everyone for sharing your beauty gone bad stories with the rest of the world - I hope you have recovered!

There could only be one winner and each of you had some awful stories! The one that really stood out to me was from Lena! I too have had bad experiences with plumping lip products but going into labour takes the cake! I thought it was a great story of beauty gone bad into a beautiful story of a new life being born! Congrats Lena! You have won a Makeup Junkie beauty prize pack of products from L'Oreal, Zoya, Milani, Benefit, CARGO, La Senza, CoverGirl and Maybelline! Enjoy your products! 

You can read about Lena's story here:
I've experienced beauty gone bad just once (thankfully) - I was sent a lip plumping product to review, and although I've used plumpers before, the combination of cinnamon oil and whatever other voodoo they put in this product actually caused my lips to swell, crack and eventually bleed. Don't know if it was the lip gloss or strictly coincidence, but I went into labour the same day :)

Funny - the product is now on shelves, but does not carry the disclaimer as I suggested: "May cause your water to break."
Thanks again to Lena for sharing her story! You will be contacted via email for your mailing address. Stay tuned for more contests coming up!

I am also using L'real products from a couple of days.It's lip gloss and lipstick is really so reliable than other products in comparison from all side.From my experience L'real is the best.
