5 to Survive - Skincare by Alana review and GIVEAWAY!

It's the holiday season -- what better way to celebrate than by giving away some goodies to my beautiful readers!

I was contacted by Skincare by Alana to review their 5 to Survive holiday skincare set, as well as give away one of these amazing sets to one of my lucky readers. Read on to find out how to enter!

The 5 to Survive kit for the 2012 holiday season includes an eyeshadow quad, lash extender, skin mask, lip gloss, and matte moisturizer (my favorite!). This set retails for $135.99 on the Skincare by Alana site -- but you could get it for free!

I tested out these products on a lazy Wednesday night, and that night quickly went from blah to FAB! All it takes is a little glitter to make me happy. Let's go through the products one at a time:

Youngblood Pressed Eyeshadow Quad in Eternity: The pressed mineral eyeshadow set features four shades of shadow in browns and pinks to create the perfect natural eye this holiday season. My favorite shade is mink, it's a light brown with just a touch of glitter -- New Years makeup perhaps?

Divaderme Lash Extender: Wonder product! This magical wand is used along with your current mascara to create ridiculously long lashes. You apply your mascara first, then while it is still wet, apply Divaderme to the tips of your lashes. This product latches on to the tips of your eyelashes. Apply a second coat of mascara on top of the Divaderme-d tips and your lashes will look long and gorgeous! Another product I will definitely be breaking out for New Years.

Eminence Organics Bright Skin Masque: This mask is intended to treat hyperpigmentation and dark spots. I don't have either of those skin problems, and I only tried this mask once, so I feel like I don't have a great basis to review it. My skin did feel more moisturized after I washed the mask off though!

Glo Minerals Lip Gloss in Brown Sugar: Super cute shimmery lipgloss. What more can I say? It moisturizes your lips while leaving a subtle sparkle. Again, perfect for New Years -- I've got my whole New Years makeup look set with this kit!

Rhonda Allison Aloe Matte Moisturize: My absolute favorite in the lot -- no lie, I will be back to restock on this lotion once I finish up my sample! I'm always on the hunt for the perfect everyday lotion for my combination/oily skin, and the Rhonda Allison matte moisturizer works like a charm! This lotion soaks into your skin quickly, leaving a smooth, moisturized-but-not-oily finish. No more greasy skin, no more melting-off makeup! Love, love, love. If nothing else, I recommend trying out this product. Plus, it's only $14. What are you waiting for?

Now on to the giveaway!

One of my lucky readers has the chance to win ALL FIVE of the products in the 5 to Survive holiday kit from Skincare by Alana! To enter, "like" the Skincare by Alana Facebook page, then come back here and comment on this post with your email address. That's it!
