Blogiversary Giveaway #2 (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.

It's a small way for me to say thank you to all of you for reading along. 

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 first 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 this giveaway.  (I think the odds of that are pretty slim, but just in case ...) 

The winner of this giveaway will receive
  • The Balm Balm Jovi Palette 
  • The Balm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette
  • Tarte Call of the Wild Palette
  • bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 in The Hidden Agenda
  • Buxom True Hue Blush in Swept Away
  • bareMinerals Ready Blush in The Faux Pas
  • Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Cream in White Russian
  • Too Faced Lip of Luxury Lipstick in Centerfold
  • bareMinerals Faux Tan Matte 

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 would love to see looks of the day featuring products you've been using and loving lately!

  2. 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. :-)

  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. I already commented on your other giveaway post, but I'll say it again...congratulations on getting to one year! I have only been blogging for a little while but I love it and cannot wait until my blog becomes more established like yours is. As I said before, "Shopping Bag" posts are great and I'd love to see more in the future! I also love haul posts, I mean, what girl doesn't?! :)

  5. Again, happy birthday to your blog! I enjoy seeing your posts and always look forward to them!

    Tutorials, reviews, and swatches are great to see!

  6. 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!

  7. Happy Birthday! May there be many more years of blogging ;D

    Besides reviews I´d also love to see collection posts. Like your Lipstick or Palette colection (which must be pretty awesome from what I´ve been seeing here). Or maybe you could collectively show us your stash each year so you and we can see the growth or maybe the things you find you never use and therefore can dismiss. Something like that. ^^

    have a nice day~

  8. hi, congrats! i would appreciate to read about how to use makeup brushes - i never know for sure how to make the best use of it. I also like eye makeup tutorials

    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!
