City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

When my Fashion Week beauty routine took over my life, I developed a new obsession for wearing lipstick. I’m telling you ladies, it saves a ton of time getting reading in the morning. Just a flick of mascara on the eyes and a swipe of color on the lips and you’ll look fabulous and put together before you’ve had your morning cup of Joe.

But I digress; the culprit of my obsession has been Rimmel London’s Berry Queen Lipstick. It’s moisturizing, highly pigmented and is the perfect shade of red that screams sexy and chic without being too in your face. The fabulous, Kate Moss endorsed brand has teamed up with Seventeen Magazine to offer one lucky winner the chance at creating their very own “Ultimate London Look“.

Think smokey eyed, rock inspired makeup and be a little out there, it one of the things we love about Europeans, they can pull off strange looks really well. Each entry must include one close-up color photo of the contestant showcasing her look (using at least 50% Rimmel London products) and instructions on how to re-create the signature look.

One lucky winner’s final look will be featured in the September issue of Seventeen. The winner will also…wait for it…wins the ultimate prize – five glamorous days in London. Including airfare for two, four nights in a hotel in the heart of London, and a Rimmel London gift basket.
Get to work kids, I know I’m already at my nearest drugstore shopping their products now.

CONTEST RULES: Contestants must be females between the ages of 16 and 23 and must submit their entries by April 9th, 2010 via
