Two Ways to Win a Sophisti-Cat Cosmetics Prize Package

A pet assistant’s job is never done…


You might think that Tabs, being the forward-thinking feline employer that he is, would have been so kind as to give me the day off today, it being a national (and worldwide) holiday and all, but nooooo. There are tums to be rubbed, food bowls to be refreshed, cat grass to be watered (he now insists that I feed him one blade of grass at a time, BY HAND, like they’re grapes, and he’s a Roman emperor), corporate takeovers to plot, etc., etc.

For the most part, I don’t mind the extra workload, especially when it involves makeup, like it does today with this giveaway for two prize packages from Sophisti-Cat Cosmetics, an up-and-coming indie makeup line of cruelty-free, pigmented products made in the USA.

To learn more about the brand, check out According to Sophisti-Cat Cosmetics, Meow Is a Purrfect Time for Cat-Inspired Makeup.

As a card-carrying Sophisti-Cat himself, Tabs was so stoked about about it that he volunteered to model the prize products… πŸ™‚

I hope you’ll enter, because you never know when you’re luck will hit. πŸ™‚ Win today’s giveaway (three separate winners will be chosen), and you’ll be quite the Sophisti-Cat yourself.

  • There are two ways to enter, and you can do both of them for two chances to win. First, you can enter by leaving a comment at the bottom of this post, a comment about anything at all, like, what’s one of the cutest things your pet does? How did you spend New Year’s Eve? If your pet were played by a Hollywood celebrity in a big blockbuster movie, which celebrity would it be? Are you a diva (or do you ever have diva moments)? Quick! — when you’re late for school or work and only have one or two minutes to get ready, what do you do with your hair? Most used makeup or beauty product in your purse right now? Do you store any beauty products in your car (maybe an emergency backup of something)? What’s your favorite lip or eye liner these days? — you get the idea.
  • Second, you can enter by liking Sophisti-cat Cosmetics on Facebook.

We’re not emotionally invested in our cat AT ALL, as you can see! ;D
