Win the KOxHedwig Nail Polish Collection As Seen on Neil Patrick Harris {Giveaway}

Hedwig nail polish

My goodness, I feel like this has been a non-stop exciting week of announcements! As some of you know I recently became a spokesperson and partner in Knock Out nail polish. They launched over 5 years ago and were the first brand to do matte nail polish and having I was obsessed with them from the start. About 3 years ago I met one of the founders, and we have since became good friends. So getting to be apart of the brand this year was a big honor for me. As is the big announcement that Knock Out is the exclusive nail polish brand for Hedwig on Broadway starring Neil Patrick Harris and created a custom KOxHedwig collection for the show.

The collection consists of four shades, Bombshell (matte yellow), Hedwig (red glitter), Sugar (white glitter sparkle), and Midnight (navy glitter). Since up until now Knock Out has only done matte, creating our first glitter collection is very exciting. Mike Potter, the founder and creator of Knock Out, is the infamous makeup artist behind the makeup and wigs in both Hedwig the movie and on Broadway so it’s been exciting watching him work with Neil Patrick Harris and all of his support with the collection. He wore our Midnight shade at the Tony awards — and if you heard his acceptance speech, Mike got an amazing shout out. (You can see the feature on his manicure on allure.com).

Mike is also Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs makeup artist and she debuted our Sugar shade at the Oscars this year where she was both nominated and performed during the awards. Karen O has been the face of the line since it launched in 2009.

The KOxHedwig collection is $20 and available at hedwigbroadwaygoods.com

PC featured on Wantable: What’s in the beauty box?

Lara Eurdolian, Wantable

I’m so excited to announce that I’m partnering with Wantable this month to help curate their spring make up box! If you’re not familiar with Wantable you should be beauty queens! It’s a subscription service where they hand pick 5 – 7 full-size products based on your beauty profile and shipped it to your door every month. You have the option to do a one time buy or subscribe for a monthly membership where you can pause or canceled at any time, so you’re never locked in. (Think Birchbox but instead of samples you get full size product.) Shippings and returns are always free so your happiness is guaranteed! Wantable also offers a jewelry box version which I’m a little obsessed with as well, considering accessories are my other vice.

This month they have just the products to help you ease into the final months of Spring and get ready for a Summer! Remember the quickest way to become a beauty expert, is to keep trying new products, and Wantable is an amazing way to do just that. By filling out your beauty profile  (it’s quick) they’re able to customize the perfect box for you. Product offerings spans brow, eyeliner, blush, highlighters, lip color, nail polish, lash product, bronzer, brushes and eye shadow. You rate each product according to “love”, “like” or “dislike”.  Any products in the “dislike” pile, you’ll never see in your box so if you only want eye products, that’s all you’ll get in your box, if you want a mix, you can fill out your profile accordingly. From there it will have you pick your favorite shades.

Some of my favorite products from this month include FACE Stockholm lipsticks + blush, Knock Out Cosmetics matte nail polish, Three Custom Color mini pressed powder, Cailyn eyeliner, and Manna Kadar transfix. (I mean how good looking is my block!). Plus prior to Wantable, I had never tried Cailyn or Manna Kadar, and I’m so glad for the introduction. All of these brands and products are available in the may box, plus many more!

Subscribe for $36/month or buy a single box for $40 (all valued between $80 and $100+). Each box is packed with 5- 7 full-size products hand-picked from unique, specialty, and premium brands and includes expert application tips and tricks.
