Win a Mystery Box Full of Beauty Items! (Giveaway Contest)


Katherine, I have sent you an email!

Here we are with the second of my mystery box giveaways!  Over the years I have ended up with numerous items that I never tested or used. Some are really nice products, but some are, well… a bit odd. I used to give this stuff to friends, but then I thought: “how about making mystery boxes?” And so here we are. Every month or two I am going to give away a medium flat rate box full of beauty products until all this stuff is gone. Here is what a box might look like.

 Win a Mystery Box Full of Beauty Items! (Giveaway Contest)

This is what it looks like with the bigger stuff that was on top removed.

This gives an idea of the size of the box. It isn’t real big, but I can cram a lot in it! I actually ended up putting quite a bit more than this in the first one that was given away.

 Win a Mystery Box Full of Beauty Items! (Giveaway Contest)

This is not the box you will win. It is an example of the type of box and items being given away. What exactly is in the winner’s box is a mystery!   There will be some nice things, some odd things, and likely some things that just aren’t for you, but that a friend might like. There will probably be some packing peanuts or tissue paper. Not knowing what you are getting is the fun of it! I will ask for the winner’s basic skin tone and color preferences to try to maximize the relevance of at least a few items, but there are no guarantees on what you might get!

To enter, use the rafflecopter form below (give it a few seconds to load or you may have to refresh the page to see the form) to leave your email under the leave a comment tab. Also, please do leave a comment telling me your skin tone, skin type, hair color and type, and favorite makeup shades. You can enter once just by hitting the leave a comment tab and entering your email. But you can get multiple bonus entries for liking things on Facebook, tweeting, etc.–those are not mandatory but will give you extra chances to win.  Open to US residents only, must be over 18 to enter, void where prohibited. No purchase necessary. Contest closes August 26, 2011, at 12:01 am EST.  I will post the winner here and notify them by email, and they will have a week to claim the prize. Have fun!
