Blogiversary Giveaway #1 (CLOSED)

I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I tell you that I started planning (and shopping for) this giveaway way back when the blog was barely three months old.

That's how excited I was about the prospect of blogging for an entire year and sharing a bunch of my favorite products with the best readers that a girl could ask for.

In fact, I was so excited that I decided two giveaways are better than one and put together two prize packs that I think are pretty awesome -- if I do say so myself.

I'm going to run the giveaways at the same time, so I can send out the prizes at the same time -- that just makes it easier for me.  You can enter both giveaways (you can enter the second giveaway here), but I'll pick the winner of this one first and if by some insane chance, the same person wins both, I will re-pick the winner for the second giveaway.  (I think the odds of that are pretty slim, but just in case ...)

The winner of this giveaway will receive:
  • Too Faced Return of Sexy Palette 
  • The Balm Nude'Tude Palette
  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
  • bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 in The Happy Place
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed
  • bareMinerals Ready Blush in The Secret's Out
  • Nars Lip Gloss in Albatross
  • bareMinerals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor in Ambition
  • bareMinerals High Shine Eyecolor in Luster

To enter this giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below explaining what kind of posts you'd like to see on the blog going forward -- reviews, tutorials, style and fashion topics, skincare, etc. (You can leave the same comment for both giveaways.)

I'll choose a winner at random using

Here are the rules:

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 - and you must follow the blog (through Google, Bloglovin or the email list) to enter.

The giveaway is open to both U.S. and international readers. If you’re under 18, please get your parents’ permission to enter since you’ll have to give me your mailing address if you win. The giveaway will be open until midnight EST on Thursday, February 28, 2013.

Good luck!


  1. I love haul posts, favorites posts, and empties posts the most. I like seeing what other people are buying and using on a regular basis. :-)

  2. Congratulations on making it to one year! Your blog is lovely and I'm so glad I stumbled across it. Here's to another year of beauty blogging fun! :) I would love to see more "Shopping Bag" posts...the only problem is that they make me want to go shopping and try out all the pretty goodies myself, haha!

  3. Happy one year anniversary!! :)

    I would like to see more beauty reviews as it can help me to choose what to buy or not to buy.

    thanks a lot for your amazing giveaways!!

  4. Happy birthday to your blog! You have great giveaways!
    I would love to see more reviews and swatches of products! Also love seeing tutorials of different looks!

  5. Hi,
    I would love to see face products that are silicone free. I'm currently very sensitive to silicone products; they cause me to break out. It's been a huge feat to try and find base face products that do not contain this ingredient. I would love to see what you can find out there.
    Thanks and congrats on one year!

  6. Firstly I think it´s so adorable that you started collecting things for this when you were only blogging for a couple of months. ^^

    As for the question I think I´d like to see more reviews esp on teint products since I think we must be similarly fair.^^
    It´s cool to see skin matching or unmatching things that I might not have heard about.

    Have a great day~

    I would love to see tutorials on the products you review that you like and use. Your honest reviews and upclose swatches show me enough of the products you consider ho-hum, and I tend to agree. But for the products that you really like, I would love to see how you use them - how you might intermingle brands, and how you would change-up a look (like day-to-nite/classic/holiday) with the same product. I really appreciate your 'sale alerts', especially when the more pricier brands are discounted.

    Congratulations and continued success on your very informative and fun blog!
