**CLOSED** 200…wait…250 Bloglovin’ Followers + FESTIVE TIME! GIVEAWAY!

I feel like I haven’t written on here for ages! In actual fact, it’s been about 11 days, which is forever in Blog Land. Is there a Naked 4 Palette yet? Yeesh! Haha.

In all seriousness, I had the honour of helping my two lovely sisters organise my mother’s 60th birthday party, and then on the day of the party I was SO SICK. Worst summer flu I have had in ages, and by the end of the day I had lost my voice! I am only just starting to kick it’s butt now, and it’s five days later!

A couple of weeks ago, I hit 200 followers here on this blog via Bloglovin’ and I have been SO EXCITED. I went straight online to start buying some goodies to giveaway, and since I have gotten 59 new followers! Crazy! I hope you all enjoy reading and joining my little growing community :) I really am so grateful that someone other than my Mum reads this blog :P (actually I am not even sure she does!)

So onto the giveaway! I thought since for my 100 Followers Giveaway I gave away my favourite drugstore products, I thought this time I would order some other products that aren’t necessarily available to everyone. I know if you live in the UK or the US, or even Melbourne or Sydney, these probably seem pretty lame. But I know it’s SUPER hard to get some products when you live in a non-capital city, or in a country that doesn’t sell these products.

Anywho! Here are the prizes!



Weeee! Aren’t they pretty!? There will be one winner of everything shown to keep it simpler. The prize pack will include:

  • Nyx Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie
  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
  • Wet N Wild Spring Forward Palette
  • Hard Candy Fox in a Box Blush - Spicy & Sweet
  • Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Poisonberry
  • Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Countessa Fluroescent
  • Nyx Highlight & Contour Combo
  • A wee note from me :)

I thought I would bulk up the prizes a little seeing as we are in the festive season, and I will try to keep the packaging cute, but more about being festive rather than Christmas themed, in case religious beliefs cause some concern :)

CLICK HERE GUYS!>>>a Rafflecopter giveaway<<<OMG RIGHT HERE FOR SERIAL

This competition will be run through Rafflecoptor until New Year’s Eve at 12AM so please check the time zone, as I think it could be the East Coast of USA? Also, if you are under 18, please check with your parents first, as I will require your postal address if you win!

I will only contact the winner via email and announce on my blog and twitter. Please avoid YouTube messenger box as these are easily set up as spam, and I don’t want you giving out any details to weirdos!!!

Stay Minty!

Kate Xx

    Hooray, you’re back. Was wondering where you got to! I hope you’re feeling heaps better.
    I’ve never tried Lime Crime or Nyx before so those interest me the most.
    I actually have the Real Techniques sponge thing and I love it!

    • Kate

      I am feeling SO much better. Today was a much better day, with no naps! Lime Crime is amazing, defs try and get your paws on something! and Nyx is great value for money :)

    Congratulations on wonderful milestones Kate! xx

    • Kate

      Thank you lovely :) I appreciate it!

  • Izabela

    I’d love to try the Real Techniques sponge as I have some of the brushes and love them! Plus it looks like a dupe for the beauty blender which I’ve heard good things about :)

    • Kate

      Thanks Izabela! I bought the Real Techniques sponge as well for myself (I really behaved myself I think, all those products I would like for myself haha!) and it is a dream to work with. I haven’t tried Beauty Blender yet but I’ve heard from other gurus that I trust that it is BETTER than beauty blender. Good luck! :)

  • Tara

    Thank you for hosting this lovely giveaway! I’ve been enjoying the mix of makeup and macabre on this blog for something straying from the normal cookie-cutter beauty blog, it’s great! I’d love to try the NYX Butter Gloss as all the Aussies seem to be going nuts over them now that they’re more easily accessible here! @daisylolita

    • Kate

    Congratulations on well over 200 followers!

    There are so many gorgeous prizes in this giveaway that it’s hard to pick a single favorite but if I had to choose I’d probably say that I’d most like to win the Nyx Highlight & Contour Combo as I’ve never tried a Nxy product before and I’m really into contouring and highlighting at the moment! :-) xx

    It didn’t publish my whole comment, not sure what I did wrong :/ I’m guessing something went wrong when I had to keep retyping my comment as I couldn’t get the captcha thing right- sorry that sounds incredibly rude.
    I had said that I would love to try the Nyx Highlight & Contour Combo- fingers crossed, thankyou :)
