gloProfesional Review, FOTDs & HUGE Giveaway!

Hi Bellas,
I'm back with another brand review, FOTD and a giveaway!  I recently had the chance to try out gloProfessional a skincare and makeup brand that actually really impressed me with its high quality products.  It's a really comprehensive line and I found some awesome items to share with you all.  And I'm doing a HUGE Giveaway worth over $1000 to ten lucky winners!
I received a wide assortment of various gloProfessional items in my initial review, check out my thoughts!

Concealer Under-Eye in Honey $31
I am a sucker for peachy toned correctors.  This concealer/corrrectors offers two shades to choose from which is great for adjusting to find your perfect match.  I received honey and found that the light side works for me but I probably should have gone for a duo a shade lighter.  The product is very creamy but not too much so that it creases...I definitely recommend.  I love my Eve Pearl correctors but I'd consider buying this one next time I need a refill.
Vital Eye Cream $35
I had run out of eye cream and was desperately in need of a new one.  The company recommended the Vital Eye Cream based on my dry skin.  I find that after a few weeks of consistenlyt using it, my eyes aren't quite as dry on the lid but I'm still feeling dryness.  I feel like this would be better for someone with normal to oily skin.
Lid Primer $24.50
I enjoy potted primers like this one.  It is super creamy and dries to a matte finish.  I love the nude shade because it conceals the eye area and also makes colors pop.  Be careful to not apply too much...the product is pretty concentrated and if you have darker skin tones make sure to blend out the edges really well into your skin tone.
Eyeshadow Trio in Coffee $30:  
This is a great product...the colors are smooth and very pigmented.  You have everything you need to do a complete look.  A matte brow-bone/all over shade, a shimmer champagne shade for the lid, tearduct and brow highlight, and a dark matte brown for the crease, outer v and I even use it for my eyebrows.
Gloss in Rose Gold $16
I tested out the Rose Gold shade.  I was surprised to see how pigmented it is!  This isn't my usual color combo but I thought it was really pretty on.
Swatch time!



Here's a look using the products!
 
 
Final Thoughts:  In sum, this is a really nice makeup line.  The price point is a bit higher but the quality is reflected in the price.  I really enjoyed all of the items I received which isn't always the case with a review.  I definitely recommend trying them out!

You can find these items at www.gloprofessional.com



Check out the video where I feature the Beauty Must Haves Collection and Show you What You Will Win!  I also am wearing the products in the video.

GloProfessional has generously agreed to sponsor a huge giveaway!  10 Lucky winners will receive the Beauty Must Haves Collection which is worth $150!  I had some time to play with these items and thumbs up!  First off you get a full sized face serum (i'm a firm believer in the amazing powers of this skincare item) as well as samples from 3 of their eye creams.
You get the Alloy Eyes Eyeshadow Palette which as an amazing mix of neutral and smokey shades - the top row is shimmery and the bottom is matte, yay!  This works well on every skintone...the colors are smooth, pigmented, easy to blend and not powdery at all.
You also get the gorgeous liquid lips in Luna.  I wore this and colors from the eyeshadow palette in my boyfriend tag video and got lots of compliments.  You also get two mini eye metallic eye pencils.  I'm wearing dark bronze in the video.
Here's the look I created from the boyfriend tag video where I used the eyeshadow palette and liquid lips.

In the video I'm wearing a smokier version of this look.  Now onto the giveaway.
