Urban Outfitters Mini Haul + 50K View Giveaway!

It's official. I am in love with Urban Outfitters! Here in Australia we don't have UO, so instead of going into a store for a quick browse, I end up spending hours trawling the online store piling things onto my wish list!

And I may or may not spend a few minutes every night looking up the New Arrivals list on my Urban Outfitters iPhone app...

That aside, here are the beauty prodz that I bought...

NYX Glam Shadow Stick in "Pink Ruby"
I think this will be perfect for lazy day eye makeup, or rushed mornings!

NYX Eyeshadow in Sahara
Such a pretty highlight colour for the inner corners!
The Finished Edge Makeup Blending Sponge
Now for the GIVEAWAY!

A few weeks ago, Taken By Surprise reached 50,000 VIEWS!!

Which is super duper exciting and couldn't have happened without my gorgeous followers who read my posts and leave me super sweet comments - thank you so much from the bottom of my heart ♥♥♥

So to say thank you, I'll be giving away a pretty little eyeshadow palette - or more specifically, the E.L.F Little Black Beauty Book!

I bought the warm edition, so it has some great earthy tones that will suit any skin tone, and the fact that it's little makes it perfect for popping in your handbag for on-the-go glam!

Gosh, so cute!
I opened it so you could see what it looks like, but it's brand new!
