Announcing the Winners of the Master Dance Classes Hosted by Cliche Cosmetics

It was extremely hard to pick the winners of the master dance classes hosted by Cliche Cosmetics. I’m glad John had the majority decision, as senior administrator. πŸ™‚

The dancers who won will be able to study with Katee Shean (S4), Melissa Sandvig (S5), Randi Evans (S5), Victor Smalley (S6) and Noelle Marsh (S6) in either Fort Lauderdale, New York City or Los Angeles.

With no further ado, let’s introduce you to the winners.

Fort Lauderdale’s class will be attended by Kat

New York’s class will be attended by Asia

Los Angeles’s class will be attended by Christine

Thank you to everyone who sent in their stories and who continues to dance. We can’t wait to hear how the classes go – congrats Kat, Asia and Christine!

Katee Shean Makeup Contest Winner Pictures

Many of you probably remember about the Katee Shean makeup contest that we held here on Pure SYTYCD. Well, one of the winners was kind enough to send a review of the makeup and also some pictures of her wearing the makeup. Thanks to Cliche Cosmetics for providing the makeup.

Hi John! I haven’t had a performance to wear the make-up to yet, but I did a trial run this evening.

The colors are perfect, actually great for what I usually use and what I didn’t have. I can tell that it will wear well, stay on and last for a while.

I’m attaching a few pictures I snapped. I should have used a bronzer so I wasn’t so white in spots, but you get the drift.

Thanks again! This make-up should last a while too πŸ™‚


Now to the pictures:

Thanks Nielle for sharing!!

Today is the final day to enter the free Burn the Floor tickets and rumor has it that a winner of the SYTYCD Workout DVD’s is making a video for all of us to enjoy.

Free Katee Shean Makeup Contest

I’m really excited to announce a great contest for all the fans of Katee Shean and So You Think You Can Dance. Cliche Cosmetics has generously donated 2 compacts designed by Katee Shean. Yes, that means free makeup for 2 readers of Pure SYTYCD. For all the men out there, if you win I’m sure there’s some lady in your life that would enjoy some free makeup. Now for more details on the prizes and how to enter to win.

Can you say prizes? First is the Katee Shean every day compact…
Katee Shean Cosmetic Line
Now the Katee Shean stage compact (for all you dancers out there)…
Katee Shean Cosmetic Line

Now a description of the product…
The compacts designed by Katee Shean are available at and will soon be available in dance retail stores across the US and Canada. Katee hosted master classes and a party in South Florida to celebrate the launch of her line. The photoshoot shows Katee wearing her cosmetics. She designed every detail of the compacts. The everyday compact that reads “Believe in yourself” contains the famous IV from season four while the stage makeup compact continues the sentence and reads “…and make every moment count”. Each compact contains 3 eyeshadows, eyeliner, blush, and lipstick and comes wrapped in a box with a ribbon for your hair.

How to Enter
We’ll be running this contest until the So You Think You Can Dance top 10 are determined. If my calculations are correct, that’s only 4 weeks. There are 4 different ways to enter yourself to win. Do all 4 things and you’ll have your name entered into the drawing 4 times. The winner will be chosen at random and supervised by the most honest person I know (my wife). Here’s how you enter:
1. Leave a comment on this post (easy enough no?). Just make sure to use your real email or we’ll have no way to contact you.
2. Send a tweet to all your friends about this website or this contest. Click Tweet This! to tweet a message about this contest. Make sure to include @tvblog in the tweet to enter.
3. Share a link to on your Facebook, myspace page or blog. Leave a comment with your myspace name, facebook page, or blog post so I can verify.
4. Join the Pure SYTYCD email list.

Any questions feel free to ask in the comments.

Katee Shean Launches Makeup Line

Katee Shean for Cliche Cosmetics Sitting
I just got news that beloved Katee Shean has launched a makeup line with a company called Cliche Cosmetics. I’ve been told “She designed every detail of the two compacts included in the line. There’s one for stage and one for everyday.” Interesting move by Katee Shean. Since I’m a man, I’ll be interested to hear what the female readers think of this line. Oh yes, that means I should probably give some away. Good idea, watch for a contest for free Katee Shean makeup very soon. Or you can buy them on the Cliche Cosmetics website right now.

Turns out that Courtney Galiano and Chelsie Hightower will also be launching lines on July 20th and August 3rd respectively.

Also, check out some pictures from the photo shoot that Katee Shean did for Cliche Cosmetics.
