Free Works For Me!

Today as I was walking out of my Linguistics class, I spotted a tent in the middle of campus swarming with girls.
"I'm a girl," I thought to myself, "Should I, too, be milling about that attraction?"
Somewhat warily, I walked over.

And I was in.
Turns out, Seventeen and Cosmopolitan magazines had paired with Mary Kay cosmetics to give UCLA students some free goodies and makeovers!

Being the non-makeup wearer I am, I asked very nicely for the "most natural look" they could possibly give me. No, not the blue eyeliner or the smokey eyes.
It was only 11:00 in the morning!

I like to think it turned out pretty well.
Nothing gaudy at all, just a bit of daytime glam to get me through the rest of my classes!

Oh, and addition to that makeover, the ladies at the counter gave each girl a generous goody bag- consisting of over $50 in Mary Kay merchandise!
(Including an eyelash curler, "Lash Love" mascara, eye gel, makeup remover, hand cream, and moisturizer!)

The clutch that everything came in was pretty cute, too!


Boy, sometimes it pays off to go to a large school in LA!

You are just lovely. I can't believe all the products they gave you! The only thing I like better than stuff is free stuff. The closest thing my school ever gets to something like this is every August when the Pregnancy Resource Center gives out free chapstick on campus.

Sweet deal!! Sounds like fun and I miss that about university - the freebies. You're at UCLA? One of my friends recently started there on an exchange from NZ. Hope you're enjoying it so far!

NICE! I love free stuff. MK's eye makeup remover is my everyday product. It's so wonderful.

I love the "natural" look you chose. It's so pretty. You've got some gorgeous, long eyelashes :D

NOT FAIR! all community college gives out is flyers to local restaurants!
