Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation/Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer/Sigma F80 Giveaway

Update May 6, 2012: Since I never heard from the winner of this contest, I am holding it again.  Please see the updated post here.

Today is kind of a special day - this blog is just about a month old and this is my 30th post.

Not exactly prolific yet, but it’s kind of a milestone.
In honor of a month of blogging and as a thank you to everyone that’s been kind enough to read along, leave a comment, or send me an email, I thought it would be a good time for my first giveaway.
I’m going to pick one reader to win the following:

 (1) Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Balancing Foundation in Fair (1.7 Fl. Oz.)
(1) Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fair (12 g)
(1) Sigma’s F80 Synthetic Flat Kabuki

I’m a big fan of this foundation (despite the fact that it’s not always the best fit for my dry skin), and the concealer is one of my favorites as well.  The flat kabuki brush is pretty much my favorite brush for applying foundation – and it works really well with the Tarte Amazonian Clay formula.

Because the prize is foundation and concealer, I know that the shade may not work for everyone, but I have some extras from previous QVC TSVs and I really want them to go to a good home. Super fair folks, these products are perfect for you.  If you’re not fair but have a sister, mother, aunt, cousin, friend, etc. who is, feel free to enter and give the prize as a gift. 

And don’t worry – I have a couple of future giveaways planned with colors that will work for more people, so stay tuned.

Because the foundation and concealer came from TSVs, they don’t have boxes and aren’t sealed as far as I know. However, neither has been opened or used in any way. The Sigma brush is brand new as well, and still in its original plastic wrapping.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below telling me what your favorite foundation and concealer are, and I’ll choose a winner at random. Only one comment/entry per person please.  No anonymous comments are eligible since I have to be able to identify each entry and I’ll need a way to get in touch with you if you win.  I’d really appreciate it if you follow the blog as well, but I’m not going to make that a requirement of this first giveaway.

The giveaway is open to both U.S. and international readers. If you’re under 18, please get your parents’ permission since you’ll have to give me your mailing address if you win.  The giveaway will be open to entries for a week, so I won’t accept any comments posted after 12 midnight EST March 16th.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Good luck and happy reading!


  1. Hi!.. recently discovered your blog and I check it everyday now... I really enjoy the way you write!... Happy 30th blogging day :O)

    1. Thanks so much, Judi! I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)

  2. I just found your blog! Congrats on the great content!

    My favorite foundation is Neutrogena Healthy Skin (currently)....but I am a foundation-aholic. I also really like Estee Lauder Double Wear. My current favorite concealer is Benefit Erase Paste, but I've been wanting to try the Tarte well as that Sigma brush.

    1. Thanks so much for reading!

      I've been meaning to try Neutrogena's Healthy Skin for the longest time - I've got to remember to pick it up one of these days. Because like you, I'm a total foundation-aholic (Love that! I'm totally going to steal it. ;) ) I've never tried Benefit Erase Paste, though I hear really good things about it. I guess that's another one for the wishlist...
