Let's face it. Blog giveaways are solely for the purpose of shameless self promotion. Okay some may say it's for "giving back to the readers" .... but what you're really hoping for is MORE readers haha. But you know what? I want subscribers and you want free make-up so it's a win-win situation!
Now a good giveaway involves some thought. It has to be an item that is a little hard to get -- because since most of you are beauty bloggers, you probably have enough resources to get whatever item you want.
I asked myself what items would make this the ultimate giveaway and of course I came up with the Urban Decay Naked Palette -- the most coveted beauty item of 2010. AND! The limited edition and completely sold out Urban Decay Book of Shadows III. I realize that many people may already own these palettes but why not have a back up? And you can always sell it on eBay (for more than the retail price) or even just return it to Sephora. So in actuality you're winning either a sold out/hard to get item that you haven't been able to get your hands on yet, 70 bucks, or a Sephora gift card -- all depending on how you put these palettes to use haha. Heck I own both of these and I would still be thrilled to get them as gifts!
Oh and this contest IS open to international entrants! I know a lot of contests only allow for U.S. entries due to shipping costs but I know these palettes are ESPECIALLY hard to get outside of the country so I want to invite every one to participate.
Now for the fun part.
