Giveaway: Beauty Addicts Anonymous

Amazing blog hosts amazing giveaway!

Good and patient followers, you may have noticed the flurry of "catch-up" posting I've been up to this week, putting up blog entries on looks I've done and products I've tried over the past--wow, just double-checked--month now.  During this process, I've had many opportunities to check out the latest posts by other MUAs whose beauty blogs I've been following.  Among them I found a post by The Cheap Chick (thanks, Erin!!) mentioning a pretty fab giveaway going on right now:

I think I would pick eyeshadow in Blanc Type and lipstick in Vegas Volt--just to go out of my comfort zone LOL.

Though my recent makeup purchases have been weighted--heavily--toward indie mineral makeup companies, I still have some die-hard favs from the MAC collection, so this seems like a pretty sweet giveaway.  But what really intrigued me was this offer by the host, one "R.":

"After the winner has been picked, I'll go on to their blog and pick something out based on their likes and personality!"

Whoa!  Now that's a unique element in the usual parade of giveaways--something personal, I love it!!  This giveaway is being hosted to celebrate R's 100th post--quite a milestone, I think, especially since I've been at this for about 3 1/2 months and only have 43 posts...and that's just because I began all of this with a "dare" to wear a new look every day for 30 days.  So really, I've only posted 13 times since the end of that monumental challenge, and in that light, 100 seems so far away...sigh...

Besides the giveaway, R's blog runs the gamut of beauty products from makeup to hair to skin care, and is a fun read and eye candy to boot.  You should check out her latest post here just because it's cute as heck.
