Annabelle & Marcelle Holiday 2016 giveaway | 30 items worth over $340!


All year, I’ve toyed with the idea of running four giveaways throughout the month of December. But this fall, an even better opportunity fell into my lap: the chance to host a giveaway of the ENTIRE Annabelle and Marcelle Fall 2016 makeup collections, plus a few of Marcelle’s latest and greatest new skincare innovations.

I am a huge Annabelle/Marcelle fan, and I could not be more psyched to get to share this incredible volume of products with you guys. Even more, I’m shipping this straight to one lucky reader from theNotice HQ, so it’s open internationally for all of my readers who have been tempted by my Annabelle posts for years (but haven’t been able to order themselves!)


How to enter

The list of items included in this prize is freakin’ LONG, so I figured I’d put the “how to enter” ahead of it – save us all a little bit of scrolling. To enter, use the widget below! (And let me know if you have a Gleam/Rafflecopter preference! I’ve enjoyed using Gleam as a reader, but this is the first time I’m running a giveaway using it.)

This giveaway is open internationally and will close on December 25th at 11:59 PM (MST)… so some lucky reader will probably be waking up to a particularly lovely Christmas present on Boxing Day!

  • Rice pudding on the morning of christmas eve is my favourite thing we do every holiday season! When me and my cousins were younger my grandma made it in the morning and we’d take a plate out to the elf and each get a gift that kept us entertained for the day :D I also vaguely remember something about there being one almond in the pot that would bring luck to whoever got it.

    I don't really have a tradition unfortunately, I do not have too much family members left so it's not a big thing but I do have my daughter with me and that means the world to me! With my aunt, we do a big lunch and a big breakfast as we open the presents during the night and we play some social games , cards, watching movies and that's pretty much it. Thank you for this very generous prize, I could make my daughter happy with this lot too ;-)

    Taking the kids to see Santa! I love to see all the Santa photos up, year after year. We used to see the very same Santa every year, but unfortunately, that Santa "retired" two years ago and we haven't found a new Santa we love like our former Santa (HE WAS SO JOLLY! RIP Santa Neil!). This year we're trying out a festival at a small winery where they do stuff for the kids too. Wine tasting, and Santa with no mall line? Yes, please!

    My favourite tradition is the tree. Since I'm Russian, lots of traditions are centered around New Year's Even instead of Christmas. So from NYE I love the Russian salads and, oddly enough, watching the President's speech on the TV right before the clock strikes midnight. I have no idea why.

So I can't tweet the contest tweet and cannot confirm I follow you even tho I do… (This application will be able to: •Read Tweets from your timeline. •See who you follow, and follow new people. •Update your profile. •Post Tweets for you.)
