Fashion Flash Giveaway Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks and a Novel!


Press Sample


I’m so grateful to be a part of Fashion Flash, the weekly e-magazine for women over 40. Our bloggers often host giveaways and it’s my turn! This giveaway is for the romantic at heart. I’m giving away a romance novel by the bestselling author Nancy Herkness AND a set of Highlight Cosmetics Matte Lip Creams. These items are sure to make date night more fun!

Nancy Herkness is the author of the award-winning Wager of Hearts and Whisper Horse series, published by Montlake Romance, as well as several other contemporary romance novels. She is a two-time nominee for the Romance Writers of America RITA® award. Nancy has received many honors for her work, including the Book Buyers Best Award, the Maggie Award in Contemporary Romance, and the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English literature and creative writing.

The VIP Doubles Down is the third in renowned author Nancy Herkness’ award-winning series, Wager of Hearts, published by Montlake Romance. When three billionaires — a powerful CEO, a celebrity quarterback, and a bestselling novelist find themselves drinking together one night, they realize they have much in common: modest backgrounds, dazzling wealth, and a lack of real love in their lives.

In the witty, sizzling finale to award-winning author Nancy Herkness’s Wager of Hearts series, a haunted writer conquers his demons with the help of a feisty muse and a passion that doesn’t play by the book.

Gavin Miller, the billionaire author of a bestselling thriller series, struggles with a grim secret: he hasn’t written a word in more than a year.

Writer’s block is killing his spirit and jeopardizing his contracts with his publisher and his Hollywood producers. Prodded by his agent, Gavin reluctantly agrees to see Allie Nichols, a sassy physical therapist tasked with treating the novelist’s severe neck and shoulder pain—and maybe his writer’s block, too.

The tempestuous Gavin and no-nonsense Allie soon find themselves entangled in a steamy affair that sparks Gavin’s creativity again. But their manipulative ex-lovers and Gavin’s lingering childhood scars threaten their happily ever after. Can Gavin and Allie find their way to love when the stakes are high and the obstacles are overwhelming?

Highlight Cosmetics matte liquid lipsticks ($25) have a natural infusion of turmeric, green tea, white tea, and sea kelp that give the lips a soft and smooth finish. Tumeric Safflower oil contains proteins and minerals and Vitamins E and C are soothing to the lips.

There are 10 different shades including five metallics. They are matte, long lasting, water resistant and non-transferable. These liquid lipsticks are surprisingly comfortable to wear, though you do need to let it ‘set’ for a minute or two. Since these are matte, I suggest exfoliating your lips before you apply the lipstick to get rid of any dead skin or dry flakes you might have on your lips. I was impressed with the wear time, even through light eating and drinking. See my full review here. They are perfect for over 40 women!

I have Sandstone Cashmere, a peachy nude, Moroccan Spice, a mauve nude and Terracotta Dream a dusty pink neutral to giveaway.

One lucky Prime Beauty reader will win both signed The VIP Doubles Down book and a bundle of Highlight Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks, an $85 value. To enter to win the giveaway, complete the mandatory tasks on the Rafflecopter widget. To gain additional entries, complete the extra tasks as well. This giveaway is open to US residents 18 and over, not responsible for damage or loss in shipping. Good luck!
