It has been ages since I last did a giveaway. I don’t do them too often, but I think it is time to give back. And for two reasons! On 4 September 2018, this blog, this little nook on the WWW came up on its 8th anniversary. 8 years! As if things could not get any better, I hit 1000 subscribers on Youtube last Saturday. So I felt it was time to organize a little giveaway to give back to all of you who have embarked on this journey with me and who are commenting regularly on my posts and videos.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by some fellow Dutch beautybloggers whether I wanted to participate in a bloghop to celebrate National Beautybloggers’ Day. I thought it was a pretty neat idea and decided to hop on the bandwagon. The purpose of today’s post is to introduce you to as many different bloggers as possible. To entice you even further, each blogger will have a small give away on their blog. So click on through if you want to win a price and find out more about the giveaway!
Please note: This celebration is mostly for Dutch blogs,
so most of the posts I’ll be linking to will be in Dutch.
Apologies if you’re from elsewhere on the globe,
but this will be a Dutch only party.
It’s time, time to give back! To celebrate my 4th blogaversary, I’ve decided to set up a giveaway. It’s the simplest one ever so I hope you choose to enter and you can win not one, but two prizes.
Let’s first start off with the prizes: you can win this MAC lipstick in Pink Plaid. This lipstick is a matte lipstick and one of my favorite MAC lipsticks. It’s a great neutral, goes with many skintones and has great staying power. It is a blue toned pink, fully matte, but because of the undertone not boring and not prone to giving you the look of death. It is my go to color when wearing smokey eyes or any dark eye make up and it goes with everything. Not convinced, here are some swatches…
… and you can see the lipstick on me here, here, and here. Of course the lipstick you’ll be receiving is brand new and unswatched. I only opened it up for the first picture you see in this blog post. So no worries.
In addition to the lipstick you will also receive a 10 pound ASOS giftcard, which will be sent to you in a separate email. I chose to go with ASOS as it has free international shipping and contains both fashion and beauty bits. And I thought it would be nice to add something so you could pick something yourself. Of course, if you’re the winner, I’d love to see what you decide to purchase.
What do you have to do to win the MAC lipstick & an ASOS giftcard?

The giveaway is open internationally, but please bear in mind that I cannot be held responsible in case the package is lost or damaged during shipment. There is one (1) winner for both prizes.

It’s finally here! My 500 blog post giveaway! A little over a month ago I posted my 500th blog on this little nook on the web. At the time of that post I promised that I would have a giveaway contest to honor this amazing fact as without the people reading my daily musings this would be a whole lot less fun. I promised to see what I could bring back from London. I hoped to find some more special items which would make for a more interesting giveaway. And I believe I have found something worth giving away.
None of these items are available online to my knowledge so you’d really have to fly to England to get your hands on these products. Here’s what you can win:
One person will win this lovely drug store make up set! The colors are very on trend all you’d need is a pop of mascara and you will have a nice looking spring make up. Let’s have a closer look at the products!
Eyeshadow # 1 is a great shimmery dark green. I think this will be perfect for any time and any person. Greens and purples are my favorite colors to use for a pop of color around the eyes so I’m hoping this will please whoever wins as well. Eyeshadow #2 is a dark brown with some shimmer to it. You can never go wrong with brown eyeshadow.
I swatched these colors in store and they all seemed soft and well pigmented. I didn’t buy this palette for myself as I already have a bunch of these colors. However, since this palette constitutes the 4 types of colors I love to wear most I thought it would be perfect for a giveaway.
The Topshop blusher is gorgeous. It’s a bright neon coral cream blush. It feels very creamy when you touch it, but it applies like a super pigmented powder. If you would like to see a picture of the blush in daylight than have a look at last week’s London shoplog, where I featured the one I purchased for myself. The one the winner receives has never been opened, but since I bought one for myself, I decided to add a swatch:
Again, the winner will receive a brand new, untouched blusher which is still sealed. But look at that pigmentation! This is one swipe and the color is just super pretty. Is it pink? Is it orange? No! It’s coral! And since coral is one THE make up colors for spring I decided to also add a coral colored lipstick to the goody bag.
I have no experience with Famous by Sue Moxley lipsticks. I swatched it in the store (the tester of course) and it went on very creamy and again the pigmentation was great. Unfortunately when I opened the lipstick to take these pictures I noticed that the tip is slightly broken, but that’s due to packaging, because this is how I took it out of the wrapper. I took a close up to show you the color a bit better.
This is a more pinky color and it’s super bright, but that’s what so good about it. If you put some on your finger and then dab it on your lips you will get a more subtle, yet fresh color to your lips. Or you could of course go all out and wear it as is. But again, I think this will be suitable for tons of people and I love these bright corals (I bought myself a slightly more orange version from Topshop) so again perfect for the giveaway.
Now how can you win all this goodness? It’s very simple! All you have to do is the following:
The rules are as follows: ***UPDATED*** 04 March 2012
