IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME! 7 Ways to Get More MAC Makeup in Your Life ($258 Value)

Published in: Giveaways, Just For Fun, MAC Makeup

Ready for a kick-@ss prize?

You can thank Tabs.

I was just sitting at my desk and taking advantage of the free overnight shipping on to stock up on some essentials — a bottle of Face & Body, a pan of Careblends Pressed (I hit the pan months ago but hadn’t gotten around to replacing it), a few eyeshadows (Era, Honesty and Twinks) — when I looked over at Tabs, who was sitting in a patch of sunlight on my office floor.

I swear to gawd, he nodded at me as if to say, “I bet it would really make someone’s day to win a sh*tload of MAC.”

I mean, can you imagine? It would be like bumping into Ryan Gosling at the mall, and then immediately winning the lottery while eating your cheat meal for the week (make mine a veggie burger, extra large order of fries and a vanilla shake, please).

And BAM! Just like that, MAC appears out of nowhere…

From my very first post on Makeup and Beauty Blog back in 2007, MAC’s been one of my favorite brands. I love it, wear it and have been following them for a looooong time.

Today’s giveaway, well, it’s what I’d like to win if I were entering a MAC giveaway. I would freak-the-eff-out if I won these 16 permanent collection products.

I spent a lot of time picking each one, choosing neutrals to go with the brights (because that’s how I roll, yo!) and included my favorite MAC bestsellers and change-my-life colors, like Impassioned Lipstick, which I’m wearing in the top pic, and Woodwinked Eye Shadow, a shade I never leave home without.

I hope this giveaway makes a lucky MBB reader feel extraordinary!

Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below. You can read the full terms and conditions there, but here’s the gist of it: the giveaway is open to international and local readers 18 or older (you must be an adult according to your local laws). Giveaway ends at 11:59 p.m. on July 31, 2013.

    • MARIA says:

      My face + these MAC goodies = potential gloriousness

    • Kate Mills says:

      This opportunity is AMAZING. I grew up in a SUPER small town in MO (like around 170 people) so of course it was a hassle to even go to the store etc. I recently got married to a Marine and moved over 18 hours away! Now I live in a huge city in NJ, and I literally don’t know a single person. So I spend pretty much all my time looking up makeup on this website, Twitter, or Pinterest. Now that I’m in a city that actually has stores that have higher end products, I recently found out that I LOVE MAC. Thank you Karen! (=

    • Stephanie Keeler says:

      Gotta love MAC! Would make my week to win the giveaway!!

    • Amanda says:

      I want to try all of these products, especially the lipsticks!

    • Tafline says:

      Wowzers. That’s a lot of Mac. And you know what they say, “Once you go Mac… you end up a penniless, beautifully made-up hobo.” Say thanks to Tabs – just for being too cool for school. But also because this is the BEST THING EVER.

    • Emily says:

      It would be pretty cool to win this giveaway! πŸ˜€

    • Carley says:

      Ok, so I turned 30 this year and I’m totally going through a reinvention phase where I am addicted to the world of online tutorials. Rather than complaining about not looking glamorous, I am taking the bull by the horns and teaching myself how to do my hair and make-up properly for the first time……and this means MAC! I started with the Russian Red Lipstick because it is fab for retro looks and I LOVE everything 1950’s right now. I also have some basics that I have been using for AGES, but I would love to start getting some experimenting on with other hot looks! Fingers crossed and thanks for the wonderful blogs and giveaways Karen xx

Here in Germany, MAC really is super expensive and even in the US she only bought her favourite eye shadow “Club”, but she tells me about MAC products she is dreaming of everytime we are talking. I can’t wait to have her back and see her face when opening this package whith the sh*tload of cosmetics. Please help me make her wish come true!

  422. Katia says:

    Oh my God, these products are so amazing!
    It would be so great to get my hands on at least a couple of them.

    Oh, and by the way, I absolutely love your reviews Karen, they’re the best.
    Keep going!

  423. Leonora says:

    Hi Karen, this is an amazing giveway. I bought my first Mac product last week and i was soooo happy…I know you might think “only last week?!” well I lived in South Europe and Mac wasn’t that popular there and then when I moved to Canada i was married and didn’t that much care about my makeup…but since my husband filed for divorce i reached the bottom and your blog was so inspiring and I started thinking of taking more care of myself. I could’t wait to receive my first paycheck and go treat myself at Mac last week…and now I am in love!!

  424. Lila says:

    I love your questions, they’re always so adorably random! I’ve got black hair and recently have fallen in love with seafood. Living in New Orleans has many perks but one of the biggest ones is all the fresh seafood from just a few hours away!

  425. Sujaan says:

    Amazing giveaway! I’d really love to try Mac. Years ago, like 10-15, I went to a Mac store, had my makeup done and bought a bunch of products. When I got home my husband said my skin looked terrible, like the makeup actually accentuated the bad things and covered up the good! And it didn’t even look like the right colors on me. Ugh. So I threw everything in a drawer and avoided Mac ever since.
    I do know Mac is top stuff and lots of my friends use it, I just had a bad experience. I’d love to find out how great it can be!!

  426. Veeronica says:

    Love MAC and love giveaways–though I’ve yet to ever win anything. Maybe this will be my first!

  427. Betty says:

  442. Karima says:

    Thank you very much Karen and Tabs! This is a really generous giveaway. All That Glitters, Satin Taupe and Naked Lunch have been on my wish list for a while now (but too expensive for me) and the lipsticks and blushes look stunning!

    Btw…you have the best cat humor ever

    Lots of love from Germany

  443. Renu says:

    Thank you for the very generous giveaway x
    My hair is mousey-dark brown…and I think TheBalm’s packaging is the best ever. Here’s the story of my scar. It is very thin and horizontal, but you can see it when I frown because it’s right on the bridge of my nose (I have to take care that makeup doesn’t cake into it…otherwise you can’t see it). I got it in kindergarten because I decided to peer closely at some kid trying to sharpen a pencil with a penknife (who gives kids those things??) I had never seen it before because they only gave me sharpener…anyway, there was sweat, tears, blood and screams and they called my mum.

  444. Renu says:

    And when I try to subscribe to MBB, I get a Feedblitz message saying blocked πŸ™ Not sure if it’s gone through, I’ve entered my email ID just in case.

  445. Meyra Kurtar says:

    I totally think that Tabs should have his own makeup line. Could you just imagine the products and packaging?!

    I love Mac make up. Unfortunately in Bulgaria ( where I live) we have only one Mac store and we get new collection rare. Today I went there again hoping to buy a coral lipstick and guess what – on the counter The temperature rising collection was still “the new” collection. I was so sad… We will miss All about orange collection! Hope to get at least the Tropical taboo. πŸ™

It happened when I was about 7 and ran into a door (talk about being a natural blonde haha). And I’m dying to try Ciate Nail polishes just because of the extra cute packaging!

    Thank you for the giveaway! Love your product choices πŸ™‚

  575. Petunia says:

    Fabulous giveaway!

    I am feeling very lazy today. Maybe I’ll watch movies and play with my makeup that is somewhat neglected. If I throw laundry in at the same time, that should justify a nap in the hammock later.
