First Ever Giveaway

To start off the New Year (although it’s already the 5th), I’ll be doing a giveaway! My first ever giveaway!

I visit a variety of blogs, mostly food bloggers, but one thing is true – no matter what they normally talk about, there’s always at least one post about make up! I’ve tried/still use many different brands but one of the brands that I really suggest is Eyes Lips Face. I find that it’s great for first-timers to test out what shade works for their skin, practice how to put on eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow without paying a hefty fee if they don’t like it. And on top of that, some of their products are really good to begin with that it becomes a staple in your make up bag – if you don’t have one, you can now buy one.

So on to my giveaway…

I’ll be giving away a $30 credit to buy anything you want at Eyes Lips Face. Now you’re thinking, well.. that’s not going to buy me much! But hold your horses and click your way over to the Eyes Lips Face.com and just see for yourself.

I personally recommend these products:

  • Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
  • Make up Remover Cleansing Cloths
  • Large Brush Holder
  • Mechanical Eyelash Curler
  • Studio: Powder Brush
  • Studio: Cream Eyeliner
  • Duo Eyeshadow in Butter Pecan
  • Mineral Face Primer

    1. I suck at winning contest. I think I won, one plug plug contest haha but that is a good idea. You are right a lot of girls blog about makeup and clothes and stuff like that. Mhm I never used that site before to buy makeup.

      And mhm I am not really “scared” of them as much more my friends are. I think we hear about all these stories that people think that it’s going to happen. I agree you need to be careful but there are good people everywhere. The people I have met have been good, so far. and OMG you flew to meet someone? That is so cool! I would love to do that but I think i need to be older. Also you dated someone from blogging?

      And do you want to be affies?! 🙂

    2. I guess I need to make an account with bloglovin then. I’m so entering this! I was going to ask you to get me some stuff anyways…..But this gives me a good excuse to finally try their minerals. I guess I’ll leave another comment about what I would get after I browse their site.

    3. Wow that’s one awesome giveaway! I’ve heard tons of good things with that brand and with 30$ you could buy a ton too!

      Omg anything LV is super duper expensive!!! hahaha bras ftw! unfortunately Im going to be going to Tokyo Sea in November 2011 that’s soooooo long away! I will be going to Disney World Florida in two weeks though, is there anything you want there? I usually like my undies from Aerie but lately they’ve had sucky collections! boo! bring back the cotton and lace panties! I remember I loved those so much I bought like 5 of the same type in different colours and they’ve just slowly disappeared on me!

      omg seagulls are super evil and here in my city they AIM when they you-know-what! There are always tons of birds here, especially crows since I live down by the waters =( o0o0o how was working at the zoo? It sounds super fun!

    4. Ok, I’ll be blogging more about what -I- would buy, but I’ll say for sures, I’ll be getting more of their awesome waterproof eyeliners. I wanna try it in midnight!

      Also want to try out their mineral make-up and those duo eyeshadow packs. Gonna try out some new colours. Also interested in those eye shadow packs that come in 4 colours.

      Also want those blending wedges! Saw them at your place, and now I want to try them. Does this count as an entry?

    5. oh my gosh! $30 is much already! I don’t have an elf product yet but I’ve been reading a lot of other beauty blogs and makeup tutorials so I think I have an idea of what I’d want to have from them.. Here they are:

      -Eye Transformer
      -e.l.f. Studio Mineral Face Primer
      -Beauty Encyclopedia Eye Editions – Everyday Eye Edition #35039
      -Beauty Encyclopedia – Face Edition – New Color Version
      -e.l.f. Essentials Beauty Encyclopedia – Lip Edition – Original Version
      -e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush
      -e.l.f. Essentials Dramatic Lash Kit
      -e.l.f. Essentials Duo Eyeshadow – Olive, Blueberry, Berry Mix

      i might not win but i had fun choosing them.. 🙂
      follow you via bloglovin, can’t seem to find how to follow via GFC..

    6. I hope this contest goes well! To be honest I am not interested in makeup, though I have been trying to watch more videos about makeup recently. I don’t really feel cut out for buying my own products. My mum works for YSL and she’s a beauty consultant. She knows her stuff… I trust her to choose products for me and whatnot.

      Good luck with the contest! I won’t enter, I don’t think I’d be really helping anyone if I won. 😛

    7. retweeted (my account – @afef) & followed in bloglovin too ;D

      Here’s what i would choose with the $30:

      e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
      e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder
      e.l.f. Studio Blush – Gotta Glow
