And The Winner of the MBB Gwen Stefani Makeup Challenge Is…

Published in: Just For Fun

Can I just start off by saying how much I’ve been Harajuku lovin’ all of your fantastic MBB Gwen Stefani Makeup Challenge looks? You guys are so talented, and dagnabbit y’all made it hard for me to pick just one. ALL of your submissions were Gwen-worthy and great. πŸ™‚


But after much deliberation, Tabs and I have chosen a winner.

And the winner is…

Rachael! Rachael channelled Gwen from her breakthrough What You Waiting For video, with bold lips, big eyes and an Alice In Wonderland vibe.

Whatchu waiting, watchu waiting for?

Congrats, Rachael. πŸ™‚ I hope you love your Sunshine Cuties perfume set (autographed by Gwenny-Gwen-Gwen herself, holla!).

But wait, there’s more…

Originally, the challenge was only supposed to have one winner, but Tabs has decided to award prizes to three runners up.

Congrats to Beth, Amber and Kelly! Each of you will be getting $10 cash gift cards via PayPal to spend on whatever makeup (or anything else) you want. πŸ™‚

Three runners up will receive $10 PayPal gift cards!

  1. Beth
  2. Amber
  3. Kelly




What a great challenge, girls, and thanks for your entries! Choosing a winner was a tough decision, but I hope you had fun no matter what. We’ll be having many more of these challenges around here, so stay tuned for your chance to win!

    OMG, “straw”…what a nasty comment to make when someone’s done something nice! Karen busts her butt writing this blog, taking photos, purchasing products to review, putting on the products, etc., all of which takes a huge amount of time and we get to enjoy all of her efforts through this blog. for free. She and Tabs are a major bright spot in many readers’ days; why do you feel the need to come on here and hurt her feelings with your nastiness? Karen, thanks for all you do and please disregard the negativity; I love your blog and look forward to reading it every morning!

  4. Liz G. says:

    I agree with mkdallas and all of the others. Straw, you are just jealous. Get over it and grow up. Karen, you do a fabulous job, I read you every day! Keep up the great work!

  5. Michelle says:

    Such a fun contest! Your prizes were awesome and generous! Wow, I really love the pic of Gwen you used at the top of this post — so gorgeous! And the winners did a great job πŸ™‚

  6. NINA says:

    Heya girls awesome looks!

    And awesome contest, Karen and Tabs!


  7. Eileen says:

    Karen, you’re a real lady–and a mighty humorous one at that. Your response to Straw was perfect. People like that aren’t happy unless they’re raining on someone’s parade.

    Congratulations to all your lovely winners for getting in the spirit and having some fun. It brightened my day. πŸ™‚

    Ugh-That first comment made me really sad for many reasons…but once again your grace in dealing with it has proved to me and others why we read your blog-your amazing personality! Thanks for all you do! And I hope you have a wonderful day!!

  15. Jen says:

    Congrats, ladies! And Rachael’s pics are AMAZING! Love the Alice in Wonderland vibe!

  16. Katie says:

    I’m assuming, or hoping that girl didn’t mean that in a bad way. Sometimes it’s hard to tell how someone says something on blogs because, of course, you can’t hear their tone of voice. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt.

    Either way, congrats to the girls who won the contest! I know I would appreciate a $10 gift card, it cuts 10 dollars off of a $15 Napoleon Perdis lipgloss!

    Woah! Rachel’s look was pretty cool, I must admit. I could imagine that with some peachy shadow, recreating the Lady Gaga ‘Bad Romance’ with the big eyes, with the falsies and white eyeliner.
