My Christmas Giveaway! Benefit, Australis, Essie, Makeup Forever + More!

Hey everyone!

So today I have for you my first ever giveaway! This is my Christmas gift to you ladies and I really hope that who ever wins enjoys the prizes as much as I did picking them out :)

This giveaway is for my followers. If you are new to my blog, maybe you'd like to check some of my posts out before you go ahead and follow. There is an archive over on the right, feel free to click away!

Enough talking, onto the good stuff!


The Prizes

Benefit Skincare Gift Set - This gift set contains minis of the Benefit skincare line. I thought this would make a great Christmas gift!

Australis Totes Smokin' Eye Shadow Palette - This palette I have swatched here. It is a beautiful mix of coppery neutrals and purples and browns.

Essie The Resort Collection Nail Polish Cube - This contains four mini Essie nail polishes. Yay for nail polish!

Makeup Forever Aqua Black Cream Eye Shadow - I thought that I already reviewed this on my blog but I just realised I haven't! I use this both as an eye liner and an eye shadow. I will post a review up before the give away is over for sure!

Essence Twilight Collection Shimmer Powder - The highlighter from the new Essence Twilight collection. It is a beautiful shimmery gold highlighter :)

Natio Skin Brightening Balm - This is one of my new favourite primers. It smells lovely and it makes makeup glide on very smoothly.

Ulta3 Lipstick in Harem Pink - This lipstick is a dupe for Mac's Impassioned. You can see my comparison here.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Glow - Who couldn't use another baby lips? This one changes colour to match your lips! Ooooh, fancy :D


The Rules:

1. This giveaway is only open to Australian residents. I am sorry international followers, in the future there will be a giveaway that includes you guys too! I just want to keep it simple since it's my first giveaway.

2. You will have to give me your address for you to claim the prize.

3. You have to follow my blog via Google Friend Connect and leave me a comment with your email address and the answer to my question to enter. The other entries are entirely optional :)

4. This giveaway will be open for one month until the 5/12/2012. I will announce the winner on my blog and contact them via email. You will get your package in time for Christmas :D


Good luck!

Mishelle
