Giveaway Break - Miracle Skin Transformer Acne Control

I have used Miracle Transformer before and I love it. It's a great product that provides awesome coverage. Now they have a new formula, the first ever tinted complexion enhancer for acne prone skin. This could be a game changer!

This is the first acne treatment to fight what they refer to as 'pimple memory,' or recurring breakouts in the spot. I always get pimples in teh same spot, I thought it was just me! This formula includes salicylic acid, anti-mircobial peptides, marine extracts and vitamin B3. These work together to both fight and prevent future breakouts.

Similar to its regular formula, it's lightweight, oil-free, and controls shine, leaving a matte flawless finish. It comes in 5 shades: translucent, light, medium, tan and dark. You can find it at and at can try to win one here!


Enter to win a full size Miracle Skin Transformer for Acne Control!

Fill out the form below to win. You can enter once a day by tweeting each day!

This giveaway is open to US residents only. The contest will end on Sunday, June 30th. I will randomly select one winner and announce them on Lipgloss Break, so keep checking to see if you're a winner - Good Luck!

Lauren Luke at Sephora!

On September 21st 2009 millions of Lauren Luke fans will be able to stop by any Sephora store to purchase one of the 5 makeup kits from her new line By Lauren Luke. With 56 million views and 277,000 subscribers in over 70 countries on YouTube via ‘Panacea81’, this savvy, self-taught makeup artist has risen to online fame with home-produced popular makeup tutorials of everyday and celebrity looks.

Lauren is a color-savvy 27-year-old single Mom who has lived a true Cinderella story. Proving the vast entrepreneurial power of today’s trend in social media, Lauren’s 5 new makeup kits maximize usability, affordability and fun and come complete with video tutorials on various looks, plus a sheer pink lip-gloss called My Glossy Lips.

The collection has five distinct, full-face makeup palettes each with three eye shadows, an eye primer, two lipsticks, a blush and, of course, the perfect black eyeliner. Lauren hand-picked all of the color themed palettes to ensure that each offers a full range of versatile looks - from day to night, classic or funky or something a little more sexy to sweet.

And the success continues. Lauren has recently signed a book deal with Hodder & Stoughton to chronicle on paper the authentic and endearing inspiration Lauren provides to women on camera. It will hit the UK shelves in October. Plus, due to her immense influence and popularity with a younger demographic, Lauren Luke will be featured as an avatar in a virtual makeover video game scheduled to release for the Nintendo DS in late 2009.
