12 Days of Giveaways Day 9, 10, 11 and 12: Kat Von D, Tarte, Urban Decay and Laura Mercier


Hello everyone! Thanks for hanging in there during the crazy holiday season for the 12 Days of Giveaways! Ideally, I would have had these all out by Christmas but life/holidays/work has most definitely gotten the better of me this year! Next year’s resolution? Not to pile so much stuff on myself! Keep reading to see how you can enter to win Giveaways #9 #10 #11 and #12!

As always, the same rules apply: Open Worldwide, must be 18+ of age, the giveaway winner will be contacted privately and will have 3 business days to respond before a redraw. All entries are checked for validity (seriously) and you will be banned from winning if you enter fraudulently! You can enter all 12 giveaways, but you can only win ONE PER HOUSEHOLD. Contest ends Dec 31st 2016.

I will be picking 4 names from this giveaway and of those 4 names one will win a Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadow in Thunderstruck (this has been sold out online for MONTHS!), one will win a set of Tarte Tarteist Lip Paints, one will win a Laura Mercier Kiss of Shine Lip Glace Set, and one will win a set of 4 Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks!!
