Inside each can is everything you need to get that beautiful Barbie doll’s signature look. The Barbie Loves Stila paint can also includes a “Barbie Look Book” that includes a history of each top-selling Barbie doll over the last five decades.”

Rest of post…

  • One Zen Cupcake Follower will also win a Juicy Couture Eau de Parfum silvertone etched atomizer with cupcake charm. Sold exclusively at Sephora. (Value $50.00)

  • Two lucky Zen Cupcake Followers will each receive $25.00 gift baskets filled with Sephora’s Vanilla Cupcake bath and body products.

    I will link your contest tomorrow, I’ve got the target giveaway tonight and I’m so excited over that, that it’s almost silly!…I have kind of a Barbie-centered post I’ve been working on and this will really tie in well…and how convenient, I already follow you! 🙂 And you’ve got some awesome stuff in this contest! I love Stila…and Sephora! Sephora rocks! I can’t even begin to admit how much I’ve spent there over the past 5 years! Now I’m off to check out those Hello Kitty cupcakes!
