vaseline mystery lip therapy blogger challenge

Recently I was set the challenge of identifying the mystery flavour of an unbranded tin of Vaseline and to design my own tin based from this, every girls dream right? I was sent an exciting package which was filled with sequins, glitter and diamantés to decorate the tin with, also included were a few clues to the flavour such as Charbonnel et Walker Pink Champagne truffles, a pink celebration balloon and champagne bubbles. After having a nibble on the truffles and trying out the lip balm for myself I put my beauty brain to the test and came up with the flavour:

In terms of a lip balm flavour I think this is a fabulous idea, it tastes and smells amazing and I'm not sure that many girls would be able to resist a Pink Champagne flavour on their lips. After realising the flavour I then put my creative hands (cough) to work and glued a pretty design of diamantés onto the lid. It wasn't the easiest of tasks and without going into detail (I certainly did not super-glue my fingers together) lets just say the end result is all that matters. I'm really quite pleased with my little blinged up tin and think that it will make a lovely addition to my make up bag. I then raided my bedroom and found a leftover violet ladurée macaroon and a fuchsia mini Eiffel Tower to include in the pictures.

The best part of this blogger challenge is that the person who creates the best post wins a trip to Paris (oh la-la) for not just themselves but a chance for their readers to win the same prize too! I have all of my fingers and toes firmly crossed that I'm in with a chance, Paris is my favourite city in the world and I'd be honoured to host a giveaway for one of you to win this amazing prize too.

The clues

The creation

The next day I decided to dip the lid in some iridescent white glitter to make it even more sparkly. I really like both of the versions, as the one above looks more simple and classic but this version looks so glittery and girly..
