Mermaids in pearls: Brecht Evens for Mikimoto
Giveaway winner announced!

It's giveaway time!

I'm a little late in celebrating a very small Instagram milestone with a giveaway, but I figured it was a good excuse to deaccession some items I accidentally ended up with multiples of.  I know some of my blog readers aren't on Instagram and most of my IG followers don't keep up with the blog so giveaways are a nice opportunity for everyone scattered across various social media platforms to have a chance at winning some really fun stuff. 

Makeup Museum giveaway

To celebrate 3,000 followers on Instagram, I'm giving away three lovely objects:  a beautifully embossed Givenchy highlighter (you can read about the pattern here), an adorable notebook with artwork by talented beauty writer and illustrator By Minoue, and a Helena Rubinstein tulip-printed lipstick from the mid-1960s.  Yup - for the first time in the Museum's history I will be giving away a vintage item! (Obviously I don't recommend that you actually use it.)  Helena Rubinstein's Tulip line was sold between 1963-1967 and featured lipsticks and a pressed powder compact.  Judging from the number of ads I've come across, it was a very popular collection or at least marketed heavily.

There will also be a bonus mystery item included in the giveaway, which I've covered up so the winner can be (hopefully) pleasantly surprised.  Hint:  it's another tiny vintage item that will go well with the lipstick. ;)  AND the winner will also get their choice of samples, as many as their heart desires!

There are lots of ways to enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. Please note that for all of the Instagram entry options, you must be following me there for them to count.  Yes, it's open internationally!
