MAC Cinderella Royal Ball Lipstick | Giveaway


Royal Ball - MAC Cinderella Collection $17.50

Hey everyone! Well I know that there's only one reason that you clicked on this post, and that's because it's a GIVEAWAY!!!! I am so grateful for all of my followers and I wouldn't have ANY of the opportunities that I have without you guys. I love talking to you in the comments, on twitter, and just in general you guys are all so wonderful. I've never had a negative comment come up and for that I am very grateful. Sooooo.....when I saw that I could snag two of the Royal Ball lipsticks and had the money to, hands down no questions asked I was just like YEP doing a giveaway (instead of hoarding it for myself or selling it on eBay, both thoughts that crossed my mind...). I also know that a lot of you missed out due to the whole Debenhams debacle and so I think this giveaway came at an even better time therefore I am making this giveaway international!


I am a Disney FREAK so when I saw they were doing a Cinderella collection I had to have it. I didn't pick up things like the palette because they were almost all colors I already had so that would have been redundant, but I am going to do a haul once the one last lipstick arrives (thanks mom, I'll explain in that post)

So I know a lot of people do "fake" giveaways but here is the proof that I have one and theres a nicely packaged one for you. Be warned it may be covered in glitter... I ordered the Cinderella Reflects Pearl Glitter and it basically leaked....How can glitter leak? I think somewhere in the manufacturing process they didn't screw the cap on right because there was glitter in the threading of the cap making it so that the cap was unable to screw on almost at all. Sooooo if there's excess glitter on your lipstick you know why, I don't just dip my products in glitter before I send them off.

I adore my followers and I've only done one giveaway on here where I have purchased the item myself. I HAVE done giveaways where I turned down reviewing the product no matter how much I wanted to review it to give it away and I have done giveaways where I review and then do a giveaway of what I reviewed. But I love you guys so much, you are all so sweet and kind, and with the hell that broke loose trying to get these you deserve them! (But if you are one of the people that tweeted that they were ugly...why are you on this page lol) I hope that this lipstick goes to a person who wasn't able to get their hands on the collection or this lipstick, and I DO go through the entrants very thoroughly so cheating or giveaway accounts will not be tolerated.


Some of the swatches that I have seen online DO NOT depict how beautiful the lipstick is or the packaging is, and I've seen people call the packaging cheap looking, and that's fine! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I think to make a statement like that you need to see it in person, and when you see it in person you see how truly beautiful and Cinderella-esque the packaging is.

Above, obviously, is a picture of me wearing the lipstick. Excuse the blood drive t-shirt, I was dumb and thought to take this picture after I had already changed out of the clothes I was wearing-I had only early classes today so luckily it was still light out when I got back and spring is here!


Here it is up close with no photoshop (well except for the fact that I cropped it...) I'm always scared to post lip swatches because I see some and people have a very hairy bottom lip and I always think to myself oh no....is that what mine looks like up close? Sorry that my lips are cracked- it's winter cut me some slack :)

I paired it with Skimpy Liner from Colour Pop Cosmetics, as it didn't change the color of the lipstick (and I didn't fill in my lips with the liner, I simply lined them), I just always need to wear a lipliner with lipstick-to me it's like a sin to not wear a liner. Of course these pictures are taken wearing my own lipstick-I have 3 total at the moment, the two from the collection that are mine, and this one that I'm giving away. I am a complete germaphobe and that would be disgusting watching a lipstick anywhere and then giving it away-I was even hesitant to open it but after the glitter hazard I wanted to make sure it was okay and then took a picture while I was at it.


And here she is! The beauty that is the MAC Cinderella Royal Ball Lipstick. I know some people have been saying the packaging looks tacky, but I think that's when people take pictures of it and it's a flat blue like the box. The actual packaging is a beautiful opalescent baby blue just like the dress Cinderella wore to the royal ball (how fitting because of the name of the lipstick), and the gold reminds me of the carriage and the palace and then the trimming on her wedding ceremony/carriage (total Disney freak, I told you...). This was a very long post for just one giveaway but since I haven't put up my review, I figured I needed to throw a bit of one in there...

On to the giveaway rules- there is only one rule: you have to be following me on Bloglovin. Anything  past that will just earn you extra points. Especially because I just made a new blog related instagram and following me on there will earn you a LOT of points (just saying...) The giveaway will run for one month and ends on my best friends birthday funny enough, and again the giveaway is international.

All entries will be verified and moderated and anyone found cheating will be removed.

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Good luck and let the games begin ;)

  8. I would love to try this lipstick. I don't live near a MAC counter so I have no MAC products! I've got red hair and really fair skin so I've always been a bit wary about trying out any of their bolder lip shades, but this one looks like it would really work for me!

    Love your blog, everything you post always seems really genuine :)

  30. So excited about this giveaway! I didn't know about the MAC Cinderella collection until after it launched and everything I would have wanted was already sold out. So my fingers are definitely crossed on this one! Anyway, I do enjoy review posts because I always read a ton of reviews on a product before I commit to buying it to try ensure that I'll like it.
