BBAC 2011: Day Six

Posted on Tuesday, at bought • 186 views

Today is the kickoff of Meow Cosmetics' 12 Days of Meow holiday sweepstakes (full details). Starting today, and every day for the next twelve days, every order enters you into the pot to win that day's prize. On the thirteenth day there will be two grand prize winners, chosen from among all orders placed during the 12 Days: winners will receive a $100 Meow Cosmetics gift certificate, and a leopard print cosmetic train case. I won one of the prizes last year - I honestly forget which, but it was one of the later days. I got several full-size holiday shadows, including some from the Reindeer collection. If you've always wanted to try Meow's stuff, this is a good time to place an order or two: not only are you entered into the drawings, but with code JingleCat you get 20% off your order, and free shipping ($30 order minimum for international and Canadian orders to qualify for the free shipping - but the 20% discount is good regardless of the order amount.)

BBAC 2011: Day Six

In celebration of a cool contest by a mineral makeup vendor whose products I really like, I'm hosting a giveaway of my own: one ramdonly-chosen commenter will receive a brand new, sealed 30-gram jar of Meow's Purrfect Puss foundation in Frisky Chausie. I've used Meow's foundation for almost three years, and I absolutely love it. (The only time I didn't wear it was when I was in Atlanta. I didn't really have a full-face primer, and knew that if I wore my mineral foundation it would melt off my face in all that heat and humidity.) This prize was purchased by me - this contest is not sponsored by or otherwise connected with Meow Cosmetics, except that the prize is one of their products. To enter, just leave a comment on this entry by noon Pacific time on December 7th 2011. I'll draw a winner from the comments on this entry and contact the winner via email, so make sure you leave a valid email address with your comment!! (Don't know if this is your shade? Here's Meow's page about the Chausie shade of foundation. Basically, if you have light-to-fair skin with cool pink undertones - or if you wear MAC's NC15 foundation or Bare Escentuals' Fair or Fairly Medium foundation - Frisky Chausie may be your Meow equivalent.)

Rules: open to any person who is a legal adult in their country of residence. US and international entrants welcome. Only one entry per email address and / or IP address.

(For folks wondering why I'm giving this away: this past Thanksgiving my parents were visiting, and I got my mom hooked up with a jar of Meow's foundation. Then I went quick-like-a-bunny to order a replacement for myself. And about five hours after I placed my order…I realized that I'd ordered Purrfect Puss, when I'd switched from that formulation to Pampered Puss, which is just a little more gentle with easily irritated skin. And Meow doesn't accept returns…so I have a jar of foundation that's the right shade for me, but isn't the formulation I have come to prefer. So into the “giveaway prize pile” it went! And this is the perfect time to give it a new home.)
