Giveaway winner ANNOUNCED!

Today's the day!  One very lucky person will be winning Guerlain's holiday 2015 Météorites Perles des Neiges and Rouge G lipstick. Here to present the winner is the Museum's General Counsel, Ice Lodge Babo (figured that would be appropriate for a wintry, snowy-themed giveaway).  And the winner is:


Yay!  Petunia, please send me your mailing address so I can get these goodies off to you. 



"Oooh, little star-shaped candies!  I bet these are pretty tasty!"

Closer look

Oh dear

Ice Lodge Babo, noooooo!  Those aren't candy!  Phew...I managed to get them away from his eager little chompers in the nick of time.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who entered!  I so appreciate the comments.  :)

No no no no no no no!!  Guys, those aren't cookies! 

Well, I guess it wouldn't be a real Makeup Museum giveaway unless staff tried to eat the prize.  :P

Thanks again to everyone who entered!!


About a month ago I remembered that I had a spring giveaway lined up this year and completely forgot to post it, so to make up for it I've got not one but two items to give away for the holidays!


One lucky duck will win two of Chanel's hottest products this year:  the Reve d'Orient quad (from the 2015 resort show - the lovely Sara at Color Me Loud has swatches) and Camelia de Plumes highlighter!

YAY!  Congratulations to Emily S.!  This is very exciting!

Oh no...


"Oooh, shiny silver square cookies...these must be special for the holidays!"


I had to explain to him that those weren't cookies before he could sink his teeth into them.  He was extremely disappointed and to soothe himself, decided to take a nap. 


Emily, once I pry out your prize from his little wings and paws I will mail it!!

Thanks again to everyone who entered!

WIN IT! Andy Warhol NARS giveaway!

It's Makeup Museum giveaway time!  I'm doing this because:

  1. It's been way too long since the last Makeup Museum giveaway.
  2. My birthday is this week and I like to give presents in addition to receiving them.
  3. It's Thanksgiving next week (already!), so I thought I'd get a head start on spreading some holiday cheer.
  4. The NARS/Andy Warhol collaboration is possibly the awesomest (is that a word?) collection ever - the ultimate combination of makeup and art.

Via Rafflecopter, one lucky person will win both the Flowers Palette #3 and the Photo Booth nail polish set

GIVEAWAY: MAC My Paradise Cheek Powder

My Paradise is from MAC's summer 2011 Surf, Baby! collection.  It's a beautiful peachy-coral shade with a gold hibiscus overspray.   In case you're wondering, here's the backstory:  I procured two of these last year - as a collector I was panicking that I wouldn't be able to get my hands on one, so after convincing myself that MAC was going to cancel my order, I ordered one from Nordstrom as well just to be safe.  Well, MAC didn't cancel my order and so I ended up with two.  (And was too lazy to return or E-bay it - my laziness is your gain!) 

The winner will be announced next Wednesday, Feb. 1.  Good luck!
