Debenhams Beauty Spring/Summer 2013 & a Giveaway! - ENDED

A few weeks before Christmas, we were treated to a huge pop of spring colour with an invite to the Debenhams Spring Summer 2013 press show.  The big beauty news for Spring/Summer 2013 is bright eyes. There were some stunning new colours in clothing, and these were echoed, if not bettered, in the stunning eye shadow palettes on offer.

From deepest amethyst purples to shades of sea and coral, colour was big, bold and bright.  My favourite eye shadow palettes were the Guerlain Attrape Coeur 502, which mixes a fairly neutral grey and sage and forest greens with that stunning pop of coral.  Just beautiful!

The 501 palette contains one of the brightest purples on offer, which can be blended with lighter mauves and silvery white for day, saving the full-on burst of purple for night.  Not only are the colours in these compacts stunning, but the packaging is hardly to be sniffed at.  Pulling one of these beautiful compacts out of your purse evokes true old-style Hollywood glamour.


My other favourite palette is the Bare Minerals Brights Wild Thing - a fantastic name for such a stunning, in your face colour pop.  To me these shades scream beaches and sand dunes, so this little quartet would be perfect for sun holidays, with endless combinations to create and blend as night falls.  Just gorgeous!



By contrast, nails look set to be fairly neutral colourwise, although they will be jazzed up with wraps and transfers for a bit of bling!  The new range of nail wraps from Myleene Klass are pretty spectacular.  At the bottom of the page, you have the chance to win a set of leopard print nail wraps and the rather gorgeous Basil Street shade from Nails Inc.  This lovely neutral is perfect for nails of all lengths and sizes.


The other things which caught my eye were a new range from The Sanctuary, including a lovely serum and mask set, which will be perfect for gift-giving (and asking!) this summer; and the gorgeous Narcisco Rodriguez For Her Pink fragrance.


An unusual combination of floral, fruity, amber and woody notes, with a musky undertone, this is a very sensual, deep fragrance. As beautiful as the fragrance itself is the exquisite thick glass bottle, which has a pale pink interior, fit to grace any dressing table worth the name.

So there you have it, my favourite items from the Beauty section of the show, all available at Debenhams.

I was also given a goodie bag full of gorgeous treats, most of which have made their way happily into my bathroom, but I have kept some back for you dear reader*!


On offer are:

  • Benefit They're Real mascara
  • Benefit Sunbeam (travel size)
  • Myleene Klass Nails 24 leopard print wraps
  • Nails Inc. Basil Street nail polish
  • Kim Kardashian Eau de Parfum Rollerball
  • Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Red Dahlia (not pictured)

To win these gorgeous goodies, just enter via the Rafflecopter below.  This giveaway ends on Sunday 17th February at Midnight.  I will send the prize out soon after.  UK and ROI entries only please.

* Please note this giveaway is not being run by Debenhams, it is my choice to give away some of the goodie bag I received as a prize, and this giveaway is entirely my responsibility.

  1. My favourite beauty product is a new one I've just discovered. Its called Sugar Rose tinted lip treatment and its fantastic. Having just finished chemotherapy and started radiotherapy my skin and lips have really suffered. This makes my lips feel amazing and it has SPF 15 sunscreen in it as well. Love it!
