Oh-So-Chic (Glamour, Revlon, Cambridge Satchel)

So I entered a giveaway Glamour was hosting on Pinterest with Revlon called the Revlon Year In Color Pin-to-Win giveaway where you could win an emerald Cambridge Satchel Company bag and Revlon beauty products.  Everything is emerald inspired in honor of Pantone's color of the year being emerald.  I have been eyeing the Cambridge Satchel Company bags for a long time and I can never get enough Revlon products so I figured, what the heck, it never hurts to try.  If you have not guessed already...I won!  They informed me about a week ago so I have been fervently anticipating the arrival of my package.  It comes just in time as my birthday is a week from today!
Here is what I received.  A gorgeous eye shadow palette and nail polish from Revlon and The Cambridge Satchel Company bag in Emerald.  I am over the moon happy with everything I received.

The Revlon shadow I received is called Pop Art.  I  have a few other of these palettes and I love them.  They create the perfect eye look using all the shadows in there, but they're also great shadows to use alone or with other shadows as well.

The swatch colors go from top to bottom.  Then after the middle shade I went from right to left on the bottom two shadows.  The shadow on the top is a nice glittery champagne color for highlight.  The dark brown is a lovely crease color.  The dark emerald green is so pretty, it has a light shimmer to it.  The one on the bottom right is a pretty silver shade.  The bottom left is a gorgeous opalescent white, this one surprised me the most as it looks so tame in the package but comes to life on your lid.  All of these colors are glittery which is great for a night out. 

The polish color is Revlon's #220 Rain Forest.

 This is a stunning dark green with small glitter.  I really love this color as it is not like any other polish color I own.  The Revlon Colorstay polishes are also fantastic long wearing polishes that do not chip easily.

Here it is on my toe!  Sorry for the super messy paint job, I was just so excited to try out the polish!  The other toes have Essie's Mint Candy Apple in case you were wondering.

I seriously cannot say enough how much I love this bag.  It's perfect for me.  I was born in May so I always love emerald colored things and this is such a beautiful shade of green.  These bags have been EVERYWHERE recently and I am so excited to have one for my very own.  You can see the cat creeping in from the top right on this picture she had to run over to sniff it.

And here she is claiming the bag for herself.  It clearly has the cat's stamp of approval and mine too!
