[Now Closed.] A little something from me to you!

When I nervously posted my first blog post back at the very end of December last year, never in a million years did I think I would reach 600 followers! The beauty community was something I stumbled across by accident and admired from afar for months before deciding to create my own blog. That was probably one of the best decisions I had made in a long long time & I will always encourage anyone who would like to start a blog to go for it!

I really appreciate every single person that reads my ramblings so as a little thank you & to celebrate my 100th blog post I've decided to hold a teeny tiny giveaway. You're probably all thinking 'yeah yeah Jennie, get on to the prize!'

Okay, so there will be one winner who will get to pick out an Illamasqua cream or powder blush OR cream or powder eyeshadow OR nail polish OR lipstick OR sheer or intense lipgloss in a shade of their choice. If I were made of money I'd love to get the winner one of each but please just pick ONE! Sorry if that was obnoxiously worded, I just wanted it to be as clear as possible!

Please note: These are my Illamasqua goodies. You will of course receive a brand new product of your choice!
On to the rules:
  • To enter, simply leave a comment on this post telling me which Illamasqua product and shade you would like if you were picked as the winner. For example, I would write "I would like to win an Illamasqua cream blush in the shade Rude." If you don't include this information in your comment then your entry won't be counted. 
  • You can pick from the Illamasqua website or from ASOS & if the winners first choice isn't in stock on either then I'll pop them a quick email and ask for a second choice instead. 
  • Please don't forget to include your contact email address! 
  • You absolutely MUST be a follower of my blog & I will check so no sneakiness please!
  • There won't be any extra entries for blogging/tweeting about my giveaway because I'm way too lazy to go through them & check but, if you're following my blog already at the time this post goes live then you'll get an extra entry just because! ♥
  • If you're under 18 you must have your parent or guardian's permission because I'll need your postal address to send you your prize if you win. 
  • My giveaway is open internationally.
  • If the winner doesn't get in contact within one week then I will simply pick another winner.
  • Please note, it might take a week or so after announcing the winner for the prize to get to them as I will be ordering online and no doubt making a sneaky purchase or two for myself & some christmas presents so please bear that in mind. It will get to the winner ASAP though! 
You have 3 weeks to enter so I will stop accepting entries at midnight GMT on Saturday 20th November 2010. I will draw the winners name out of a hat/from random.org on Sunday 21st November 2010.

Please make sure you've read the rules & good luck everyone!
xoxo
