10 Days of Giveaways: Comment to Win Tarte’s The Vanity Palette

Published in: Just For Fun

The giveaway is now closed, and I’m contacting the winner by e-mail. Good luck!


Heya, girls. It’s just before 4:30AM here in jungly Kaneohe, but my body hasn’t adjusted to the time difference yet. I’m wide awake (the neighborhood chickens aren’t even up!).


As usual for mornings here, it’s raining, but the sound of it is keeping me company as I type this post in the dark.

I hope you slept well because it’s time for today’s Tarte giveaway and the MBB virtual Saturday potluck!

Bring your flip-flops, the macaroni salad and your swim trunks because weekends in Hawaii are all about picnicking and hanging out with friends and family at the beach.

And just because we’re not all in the same ‘hood this afternoon doesn’t mean we can’t all make it to the party.

The prize


One lucky lady will win Tarte’s The Vanity palette (a $52 value).

Bring your imagination because this mega-palette comes stacked with three levels of lip, cheek and eye makeup.


The Vanity is limited edition (read: hard to find), released during holiday 2008, but if you missed her then, here’s a chance to try again.

How to enter

To enter the giveaway and attend this afternoon’s virtual potluck, just leave a comment on this post with what you’re going to bring to the party. There will be a lot of us, so we’ll need tons of snacks (what Hawaiians call pupus) and food, beach games and beverages.

I’m going to bring my macaroni salad, fruit punch and barbeque chicken, yum!

I’ll choose one winner at random from among the people who enter by 11:59 PST Saturday night.

Good luck!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


The giveaway is now closed, and I’m contacting the winner by e-mail. Good luck!
