Once this website gets 100 followers from fellow bloggers and/or email subscriptions, I will be doing a giveaway. I post almost every day and at times twice a day, so I suggest signing up for weekly updates instead of daily. It will consist of samples I’ve picked up from: subscription boxes, Department Stores, Sephora, Ulta, Beauty.com, Target, and more. My plan is to tailor the box to the winner as much as possible. They will all be unswatched, new items. When you shop as much as I do, you are bound to collect more samples and GWPs than you can use. It will be determined via random number generator. I will assign a number to each comment starting with oldest first.
I prepared the following box for a Beautytalk user at the beginning of January 2015. It included: Agave Oil Treatment (love this), Juice Beauty CC cream in Natural Glow (love this), Amika Dry Shampoo (new to me), em full-sized liquid foundation (like this), Peter Thomas Roth Shampoo and Conditioner (like this), Lancome BiFacil (my absolute favorite makeup remover), Benefit Porefessional (love around my larger pores only), Peter Thomas Roth moisture Infusion Facial Bar (like this for my body only), Hanae Mori Butterfly (nice scent), Givenchy Very Irresistible (smells good), Urban Decay Anti-Aging primer (like this), Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara (like this), Lancome Le Crayon Khol (like this), GlamGlow Bright Eyes (love this), Benefit Sun Beam (very pretty glow), and H2o+ Oxygenating Rejuvenator (love this).
Are there any items you want to try? List a few in your comment. If I have any available, I will include it in the box if you’re selected. I will contact the winner via email to notify him/her and ask for the mailing address. I will also ask some basic makeup and skincare questions, so I can tailor the box to the winner as much as possible. The winner will have seven days to respond before I draw a new winner. Winner must reside in the US, Canada or Mexico to qualify.
The site may take some time to build up an audience, so it may take a while to conclude this promotion. As long as the site reaches the goal, the giveaway will take place. Odds of winning depend on how many people subscribe and comment as entries require both. If all subscribers enter the contest, the odds will be 1 in 100. Good luck!
I decided to do a special giveaway for another Beautytalk user toward the end of June 2015. This is the box I put together for her. Again, this is an example of items I may include if you win this contest. She received: Coastal Scents Reveal3d in Desert Bloom (love this), Marc Jacobs mascara (reviewed well), Cythnia Rowley Poppy (love this), Lancome Kohl eyeliners (love this), Harvey Price Yogini (like this), Julep Leave Your Brows at Home (like this), Aroma Actives bar (standard bar sap), H2o+ Targeted Care Hand and Cuticle Cream (love this), Real Chemistry Luminous Three Minute Peel (love this), h2o+ shampoo and conditioners (reminds me of Disney), No4 Protect and Comb (new to me), Fekkai Dry shampoo (new to me). She did not give me any product or skin concerns when creating this box.
