Beauty giveaway – It’s competition time! – ENDED

As you may have seen, a few days ago, I was really lucky to reach 50 followers!

I’ve been collecting together a number of items, in order to put together a giveaway, for some time now so I’m really pleased that I’ve finally got to a point where I can get my competition going!

I have actually been collecting things for so long that I had too many things to give away all at once so I’ve got a second set of things which I want to add a couple of bits to which will become a second giveaway for another time in the future – so if you don’t win this time there’ll be a second chance to win in the not too distant future!

So, here’s what I’m giving away! (If you want to skip the details of these items then just scroll down to the How to enter part)

I’ll just run through what everything is, for you.
From Soap and Glory’s range of miniatures we’ve got ‘Clean Girls’, ‘Hand Food’, ‘Scrub of your life’ and ‘Righteous Butter’ – I’m a Massive Soap and Glory fan so would love to give someone else the chance to try out some of their gorgeous products.
These three items from MUA are their new ‘Undress me Too’ palette, their ‘Undress your skin’ highlighter powder and their nail polish in ‘Stormy Skies’ – Sorry that the polish is in the old style bottles, I was gathering these bits together before the new bottles were released. 
I’m a big fan of all three of these products, here’s my NOTD post wearing Stormy Skies and posts containing swatches for both ‘Undress me too’ and the highlighter powder.
Lastly, a couple more makeup items. A miniature of Benefit’s ‘They’re real’ mascara and Miss Sport’s ‘Dr Balm’ tinted lip balm in shade 02. 
I’ve tried to get a nice mixture of some more pampering body care items and some makeup items from a few different brands that I really enjoy. I hope that whoever is lucky enough to win really enjoys them too. 
All packaged up in an old birchbox box, ready for whoever wins! 
Soo, on to how to enter. 
Firstly, I’m sorry but this has to be a UK only give away, I just can’t afford the costs of postage for international post. I do hope to do an international giveaway in the future but for now they’ll have to be UK only. 
The only mandatory thing will be to follow me on GFC – I’ve had a couple of friends struggle with knowing how to do this so I’m going to post another post for those who’re not sure, it’ll be linked HERE once I’ve written it. 
There will be options for getting extra entries via twitter, fb etc. I’d love to put an add to Blog Lovin’ as an extra entry but it’s too difficult to confirm (But feel free to follow me on there, too, if you don’t already, it’s a fan way for keeping track of all of your favourite blogs!) 
So, feel free to enter via the Rafflecopter widget below – If anyone is unsure about Rafflecopter, as I know some are, please don’t be put off entering, it’s a great way to run giveaways. If you’re not sure how it works please comment or e-mail me and I’m more than happy to help you work it out so that you get the chance to enter! 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

A winner will be drawn, at random, by using the Rafflecopter widget, once the competition is over. I will contact the winner and they’ll need to reply within 7 days.

The prize will be posted via recorded delivery and everything will be packaged as carefully as possible but any damage, in transit, is out of my control.

If you’re under 18 you’ll need your parents permission to enter.

    Oooh, this is a lovely giveaway πŸ™‚ Thankyou for the opportunity :3
    I don't know what I'd like to see, it's wonderful as it is! I think maybe…more nail art? I don't know, I've been sitting here for almost five minutes going 'nope, I can't think of anything to improve on'! (I'm helpful, I know XD Sorry! :P)
    Thankyou again for the blog and the opportunity – and good luck, everyone!

    • Claire Brownbill May 26, 2013 / 3:44 pm

  13. Cordelia Earle May 27, 2013 / 9:41 pm

    This giveaway is awesome.

    I am a late worshipper to S&G but I really really love them, so this would be a wonderful prize if I was lucky enough to win.

    As for telling you what I would like to see, I hate these questions as I feel your blog is your space and clearly what you are doing is already great as people are already following you. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the good work.

    • admin May 31, 2013 / 5:23 pm

      I can't promise much in the way of how to, Kristy, my answer with my hair is getting it all chopped short πŸ˜‰

      I have been trying out some nice high street hair care products, though, so maybe keep an eye out for reviews of those, they've definitely helped me πŸ™‚

  57. Nicola Lynch July 1, 2013 / 9:44 am

    Hi there, I've just found your blog and read your About Me section and it resonated so well with me, especially the first paragraph! I've let beauty go completely out of the window since my boy was born 11 months ago so I think it's great to do a family and beauty blog. I would love to see more on fitting any kind of beauty in with a cheeky monkey on the loose, there are just never enough hours in the day! Loving the nails, a little bit of brightness is sometimes just what's needed. Thanks πŸ™‚

    • admin July 1, 2013 / 9:48 am

      Lovely comment, thanks Nicola. I've actually got a couple up my sleeve of juggling parenting and beauty – Hopefully you'll like them, and find them handy, when I get them up :.

  58. Beau Maquillagex July 1, 2013 / 11:53 am

    Love your posts! You have a great range of them, my personal favourites are reviews and hauls πŸ˜€ x

  59. Ruth Hedges July 1, 2013 / 1:25 pm

  60. Ane S July 1, 2013 / 4:42 pm

    I think's its great you do so many budget reviews, so I'd like to just see more of those. Thanks for the giveaway!

  61. Charlotte Mackie July 1, 2013 / 6:38 pm

    I thought this would be a good place to leave this comment since it gives an extra entry for the giveaway (yay! haha) but I really enjoy reading your blog and the mixture of things you post is really refreshing compared to a lot of "beauty" blogs πŸ™‚ x

  62. Cheryld July 1, 2013 / 8:00 pm

    I think the blog is great.

  63. BeckyBooxxx July 1, 2013 / 10:04 pm

    i love reviews basically. If i want a product, i'll google it to see what people are saying about it, so more reviews would be lovely. I love your blog though πŸ™‚

  66. Leanne July 2, 2013 / 10:46 pm

    Brilliant stuff. I've entered.
