IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME! 7 Ways to Get More Makeup in Your Life ($355 Value, International Only)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun

Win $355 in makeup from Makeup and Beauty Blog

“Hello there!!” Sending a shout-out from Northern California!

This giveaway is strictly for my makeup buddies outside the US. ๐Ÿ™‚

I did my best to put together a kick-@ss package for you gals (and guys). It’s my way of saying “thank you” for visiting MBB and for spending time with me and Tabs. Even though we’re many miles (or kilometers) apart, it feels like we’re neighbors.


The prize? $355 in products from some of my favorite brands! — like MAC, Benefit, Too Faced, Stila, Laura Mercier and Hello Kitty.

I wish I could get every sponsor to include you gals overseas, but sometimes they can’t/won’t. I do try, though. I want you to know that I appreciate and love you. I’ve known many of you for years (you know who you are!). Thank you, as always, for helping to make this little corner of the Internet a better place.

Enter to Win a Makeup Prize Package Worth $355 with makeup from MAC, Laura Mercier, Stila, Too Faced, Benefit and Hello Kitty

$355 of makeup and beauty products, say what?!

  15. Priyanka Bhandari says:

    woww what a give away, its dreammyyyy ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ *excited*

  16. Natasha says:

    I’d be happy with a giveaway that’s open to international readers, but to make it just for us? That’s amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much!

    The makeup brand I’m currently obsessed with is Maybelline. I used to only look at drugstore brands for dupes of higher-end stuff, but I think Maybelline products are really great in their own right. Their BB Cream is great and is comparable to a lot of higher-end BB Creams and their mascaras, of course, are amazeballs.

  17. Sarah says:

    Wow how generous of you! What an amazing giveaway, especially since these brands can be very expensive and hard to get outside the U.S ๐Ÿ™‚

    Of all the things, I’m choosing to comment on how I used to stalk and comment on this blog all the darn time as a student — now that I’m working, it seems I really don’t give myself any time off for things that I enjoy. I suppose my colleagues and superiors had a point when they told me to learn to relax (or even a more direct hit, “get a life”). LOL! That’s my only 2014 resolution then! You don’t wanna miss all the things you enjoy in being career-driven. Smell the flowers, roll in the hay. LOL whut

  59. Noga says:

    A few years ago, when I was backpacking with a friend through China, we took one train from Beijing to Chengdu – that was a 36 hour ride, as the plane touched down on 4pm, so by the time we got to the right train station they only had tickets to the longest ride possible, and to top that, it was a standing ticket as they ran out of every other type as well…
    So potentially we were supposed to be standing the whole time. Thankfully some people were really nice and let us sit for a bit (seeing two foreigners on that part of the train was a bit of a shock, I suspect), and as it wasn’t full all the time, we were able to nap on a chair every now and again towards the end of the ride.
    Let’s just say that from that moment on, we ordered the train tickets in advance, and only for a sleeping cabin ๐Ÿ™‚

  60. Sylirael says:

    Wow, Karen! Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to put together a package specially for those of us overseas!

    It’s so hard to get most of the brands you have in the US – and usually if things do come here they’re 2-4 times the price. I know I’m not just speaking for my own country either!

    <3 you, Karen!

    Karen, this is such a generous giveaway. I remember reading that you were going to have a giveaway solely for international readers after Christmas but I never thought it would be so huge. Yes, it is hard to have US suppliers provide products for giveaways outside the US even though many of us beauty maniacs (I say that in the nicest possible way) love so many US brands. Your selection here is amazing.

    Sending you and your readers best wishes for 2014 from Down Under!

I love Sherlock and Call the Midwife. I’m a typical virgo. I have a pimple on my nose.

    That’s pretty much me in a nutshell. Love the giveaway!

    I usually don’t enter giveaways that much as I have appalling luck but I accidentally hit post a comment while browsing (been a lurker on your blog for years now) and saw the footballer hint. Okay, so right now the cutest footballer is Lionel Messi but when he was actively playing it was Raul Gonzalez and maybe Ruud van Nistelrooy. Lol. And the longest train ride I took was across Europe. Thanks for letting me waffle on about footie and I’m off to check your other questions!

    This is such a lovely giveaway. I’ve never tried any Too Faced products before but they look great. It’s a real shame that more brands don’t support your overseas following, British people really appreciate American makeup brands. Good luck with the giveaway xxx

    As a resident of India, I don’t have access to many of the products that you’ve included in the giveaway [Those that are available would end up burning a massive dent in my monthly expenses, if I do summon the guts to buy them] Out of all the product ranges that I’ve tried, I am diggin’ Maybelline and Revlon products due to the wide range of products available and their relative affordability.

    I am really loving the Maybelline and L’oreal Lip lacquer balms, they’re almost like liquid lipsticks.

  628. Sarah Liz says:

    Right now most of my products are by Benefit, as a makeup artist once did a demonstration and I was so impressed that I went out and bought everything that she used! Predictably, I don’t use everything – the cheek/lip stainer, for example, but that’s more because I don’t have the occasion to use it.

    However, my favourite brands have to be Rimmel and CoverGirl. As I live in Australia, we don’t always have the same lines as in the US (which is such a pity because I really love the look of them and, being an total novice in the makeup area, I have no idea where to buy it online). I love the Rimmel lipglosses, whereas for CoverGirl I find myself going back to their mascaras over and over again.

    I hope you had a lovely New Year!
