2nd Anniversary International Giveaway

Hello Everyone, 

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

I started blogging to share my little knowledge and skill about make-up, to decipher the creative person in me and interact with people who think alike and share the same interest. And I feel proud today that I have completed 2 years of blogging. These two years have been fabulous for me. I learned a lot about make-up, came across some cool make-up brands, met with some cool people around in the industry and made some really good friends. 

At one point in time, I almost thought of quitting blogging, but then some really good friends kept me going and my blog started growing, in terms of readers and followers. Today, my blog has readers from around the world, maximum from USA, India and Europe. And to tell you about stats, my blog gets average 110+ page views everyday, which to me is HUGE. I feel that my thoughts and opinion are read by more than 100 people across the globe. Wooh... That's incredible for me. 

So, today I want to take this opportunity to THANK each and every reader, subscriber and follower sitting in the smallest corner of this world who has taken his/ her time out and has read my stuff and kept me going. Well, just thanks will be too small a gesture for incredible you. 

If you are following and reading my blog regularly, you would know that I am obsessed with bright lipsticks. So, I want to share my love with you incredibly lovely people out there. I will be giving away two MAC Lipsticks - MAC Red and Girl About Town. These are my two most favorite lipsticks from MAC. You can see me wearing MAC Red here and Girl About Town here. Here are the pictures of the two lovely lipsticks:

  2. Congratulations.. 2 years of blogging.. thats a mile stone..
    Started blogging to learn about makeup and gradually it becomes addiction. :-))
    I love eye liners in different colors and still an amateur with eye makeup. When I see lipstick I feel an urge to buy it and I do buy them however when it comes to applying it I am hesitant..
    Working in IT company with SLA's, project delivery timelines, brain storming coding and whenever I find time in between I blog... I hope my boss doesn't know about it :-D

  6. I have been a silent reader of your blog but never thought of following you on GFC since I check your blog very regularly for updates anyway. But, I guess this giveaway is the perfect opportunity to become your 'official' follower. I must say that you are an absolute inspiration for me getting into bright lipsticks. I have been in a MLBB lipstick rut for ages, but looking at your FOTDs makes me wanna grab more daring shades. Also, thanks a ton for being so thorough with your reviews. All of my Mac purchases have been made based on your reviews and I must say that none have disappointed me so far.

    2. My pleasure, Eesha di! For someone on a student budget like me, buying mac lippies is a huge deal, so I always make sure I research well before splurging. That is when your posts come in handy because you put FOTDs with every review which gives me an idea about what kind of makeup I can pair the lippie with. I recently bought Mac Diva after seeing your FOTD in it. Its an awesome shade that makes me feel oh-so-sexy, but since I am so shy of wearing such bold shades outside, I just wear it around the house and feel happy! :D

      I am trying to slowly incorporate some eye makeup into my daily look, and as usual I am taking loads of eye-inspiration from your blog!

    3. Oh my God Swati... I am so glad that my reviews & posts are of help to you to finalise your purchases. Do start wearing brigther shades outside as well, you will get loads of compliments. Do send me your pictures with those bright lipsticks. :-) :-)

    5. I will definitely send you my pic in Diva once I get the courage to wear it outside. BTW, I see that you recommended MAC VG Cyndi to Karina below. I have seen that shade on loads of blogs and it looks really good... could you tell me if that is a perm shade?

    1. Hi Karina... Thanks dear for participating. For everyday, try Revlon Color Burst lipsticks in Rosey Nude, Soft Rose or Mauve, and if you are ready to splurge on MAC try Lustering, See Sheer, Crosswires and best for summers would be Viva Glam Cyndi, its my fav for summers. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have further querries.

  12. Happy blog birthday!! :)
    I am still pretty much a make-up newbie! Although, that doesn't stop me loving every single aspect of it and trying to learn and grow with my make-up abilities! I am opening my mind to new products and have newly discovered MAC and I am in love! Their lipsticks are so gorgeous!
    I really hope my make-up knowledge grows with time, but for now I am just a great lover of reading make-up and beauty blogs and browsing through tutorials and images! :D

  13. Hi, happy birthday for your blog! I'm from Indonesia, you have a reader from Indonesia too now :D
    Anyway I love the MAC Red Lipstick, I've seen a lot of photos of girls wearing this kind of red color lipstick, and they look gorgeous. FYI, in Indonesia, there are a lot of people who sell unoriginal lipsticks here. MAC is one of the brand that have been plagiarized. They sell it in a very cheap price. I feel bad because there are still a lot of people who buy the unoriginal one, it's kinda dangerous. We should buy it in the official counter if we don't want to be prank by the naughty sellers.
    I'm not really good in make up thingy, but I'm currently learning the trick and tips from beauty blogs like yours.
    Anyway, I've already followed your blog through GFC as Septiy Anggraini. And your twitter as deeantsy.
    My email is septiy.anggraini@gmail.com
    Cheers
