GIVEAWAY: Five February Favourites!

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

I realized that we haven’t had a giveaway in ages, so I wanted to put together something special for you lovely ladies. The result? A “favourites” giveaway, of course!

One lucky winner will get to try out a bunch of my faves – my favourite drugstore eyeshadows (Annabelle), one of my favourite drugstore lipstick lines (Marcelle Rouge Xpression), my favourite lid shade for light-to-medium skintones (Halo, and I should probably also note that the opened one in the photograph was my own; the winner will get a sealed one), my favourite deo (technically, I prefer the liquid, but Canada Post says I shouldn’t be shipping that…) and, finally, my favourite off-greige polish (Steel Gray).

The prize

  • Annabelle Eyeshadow Trio in Rosewood,
  • Marcelle Rouge Xpression lipstick in Curious,
  • Marcelle Minerals Eyeshadow in Halo,
  • The Body Shop DeoDry stick in Fresh & Floral, and
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish PRO in Steel Gray.

How to enter

There are two easy ways to enter this giveaway, and you’re more than welcome to do both ;)

  1. For one entry, follow @theNotice on Twitter re-tweet the following:
    Follow @thenotice and RT to win FIVE of Rae’s favourite products!
  2. For one entry, follow theNotice through Google Friend Connect (over in our right-hand column) and leave a comment about anything at all at the bottom of this post.

This giveaway will run for two weeks (until the 16th of Feb, 2011) and is open internationally following your country’s entrant laws. (Which I think is legal age or over 13 with parental consent?)

Good luck! xoxo
