Yet Another giveaway from thepaintedmask (#3)

Nothing really new to say!  This ones focused on flawless dewy skin!  The rules are the same as previous giveaways, so feel free to skip the tedious verbiage for new entrants.

WordPress doesn’t have an easy system for tracking “followers” of the blog, so please either  sign up for a subscription with the link on the sidebar, using the same email I should contact you with if you win,  be a commenter on the blog(at least one comment on another post), or tell me how you follow thepaintedmask.  Either way, make sure the email you list is one you ACTUALLY CHECK. Trust me on this. I’ve discovered MONTHS after the fact that I won, and then lost giveaways, because I forgot which email I entered in the sign up box.  Ouch.

Retweet or show a link on your own blog for additional entries(Please leave the link in the comments so I can count it!  One additional entry per twitter account, and one additional entry per blog, for three chances total).

As long as your local laws will let you enter, and customs will let me ship to you, go for it! Over 18, or have parental approval, all that jazz .

Note: If, by some lucky chance, you happen to win more than one of the giveaways, I’ll pick a new winner for the one drawn last.

Entry will be open for two weeks after I post this(February 1st )

I’ll contact the winner by email, and if there is no response, I’ll draw another winner after a week.


UPDATE:  Congrats to Malkatz!  This giveaway is now over.  Stay tuned for giveaway #4, coming soon.

Most of these are mini’s-a perfect chance to try a new product!

Mini NARS Orgasm Illuminator.

Mini Too Faced Glamour Girls lip gloss

    Just want to say thanks for always doing so many great eyeshadow looks! I’m fairly new to using colors other than brown and you have given me some great ideas to try. I look forward everyday to seeing what you will do next!!!

    Also, thanks for doing this great giveaway!!! I tweeted the link…My twitter is @turtlegirl922.

      Thanks! Color can be overwhelming, but it’s REALLY fun. I never quite know what I’m in the mood for, so it works out well! Have fun experimenting! Remember to check back in a few weeks-the next giveaway has a lot more colored eyeshadow to play with.
      In the meantime, you’re all set for this giveaway! Good luck!

    follower of yours . some tutorials with all natural makeup items would be nice like heavenly naturals on etsy , 100 percent pure , or any brand that has no chemicals or parabens in them . that would be cool .

      You’re all set!

      I use a lot of brands that fit that description, it’s honestly not somethign I keep track of after I’ve purchased and/or reviewed the product. I don’t have any of the brands you mentioned. I’ll definitely try to figure out which products I have to show like that.

    Yay!!! Another giveaway!!! I think its fantastic that you do these things! I have never won anything but it makes things fun!!!
    I tweeted, beanagirl02, and I facebooked about this great giveaway.
    I never knew makeup could be so much fun! I have recently started to get into all this fun stuff!!! I enjoy all the looks that you do! The bold colors are great!! Thanks again!!

      heh. It’s funny how luck is. The ONE time I won something in a giveaway, it was a 300$ book set I REALLY wanted….

      But I forgot that my registration on that site had an old work email I wasn’t checking. I got the email…… five months later? and by then a new winner had already been chosen(obviously). I nearly cried!

      I’m starting saving again for more giveaways, once this last one is done. I REALLY need to figure out how to get companies to sponsor them, since all of this is stuff I’ve managed on sale, with other purchases, etc. Obviously it took me MONTHS to put together all four sets for this round of giveaways. I hope I don’t have to keep you guys waiting that long again!

      Good luck! Hopefully it holds, and you’ll have some fun stuff to play with. Have fun with all of your makeup! It is REALLY addicting!

      You’re all set up. Have you been through the tutorial archives? There’ve been a number of bright looks so far. I don’t think I’ve done a smoky eye with a hint of color, though. WE’ll see what I can do!

      You’re all set! I’m glad you’ve been learning from the tutorials. I’ll try to get more regular at posting them–I usually have a few photographed, that I later decide “I don’t think anyone wants to do THAT look…” and I forget to post.

      You’re all entered.

      May I ask what products you are using, and what your skin type is? A lot of times it’s either an allergic reaction to an ingredient, or a hygiene issue(like, you aren’t removing it thoroughly enough, or cleaning your brushes frequently). Some skin types may be prone to react to certain types of products( a lot of oily skin types have difficulty using heavier coverage liquid foundations, or even some tinted moisturizers, for instance).
