Strand On Beauty’s 1st Blog Birthday Giveaway!

It’s time for me to say all those things that people say when they reach a milestone in their blogging “journey”. First, though I want to say thank you!

I really can’t believe how much I’ve achieved this year. I started out just taking a look at WordPress to see what the fuss was about. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a beauty blogger! Now a year on I’ve posted almost 200 times and have almost 3000 followers across all social media platforms!

I’ve been humbled by how each one of those followers has taken the time to follow me, tweet, comment on, and share the things I post. I’ve made so many friends and met some of you at events. I’ve worked with brands and PR that have all taken the time to welcome me into this lovely community and I can’t really remember how life was before Strand On Beauty was launched!

So this is why you’re here – to find out how to win this gorgeous prize worth over £90! Here’s what I’ve chosen for you:

DHC Liquid Eyeliner in Black 

DHC is one of the new brands that I’ve discovered this year. Read more here.

They say:

Define your eyes like an expert with the DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX, an intensely black, gentle brush-tip applicator pen. This easy-to-use, long-lasting and smudge-proof eyeliner pen dispenses just the right amount of liner to create any look, from a bold cat-eye flick to a sleek line for elegant definition. The fine brush nib ensures precise application, whilst the water-resistant formula will keep your look intact throughout your day. Quick-drying formula.

Givenchy Le Prisme in Couture Beige

An iconic cosmetic brand that I want to experience more of. One of the first fragrances I bought as a teenager was from Givenchy.

They say:

The Le Prisme Yeux Mono Compact is unique in the world of eye shadow thanks to its clever combination of four different textures of the same shade in one convenient case, a true make-up revolution! This delightful presentation of textures ranges from matte to glittery, sheer to pearlescent to ensure you can create a range of beautiful looks and the eyes of your dreams.

Daniel Sandler Water Colour Blush in Angel 

I’ve given up using any other blusher! Read more here.

They say:

The cult Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blusher was created for those who want a gorgeous, natural flush that is easy to apply and lasts all day. Whereas some cream formulas wear away too soon, and some liquid or gel stains dry quickly and are a nightmare to blend, the silicone-based Watercolour Blush is a dream to apply and lasts forever. The buildable fluid gives skin a dewy glow and is available in a range of divine shades to suit all skin tones.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Petal Shimmer 

This classy brand never disappoints. Always want to buy more than I can afford!

They say:

Get fuller, more irresistible lips with this gorgeously sweet, melting gel formulation. It nourishes, repairs and protects your lips whilst giving their natural colour a boost with a shimmering touch. Protect them from free radicals and environmental aggressors so that they become more kissable day by day.

Dior Show New Look Mascara in Black

Did I save the best till last? Well, you can be the judge if you’re the winner. Here’s more.

The new prodigious mascara with volume enhancer action, lash by lash. An exclusive nano-brush captures and coats every single lash, even the tiniest ones.

A Lash Multiplier TM serum treatment formula thickens, separates and extends the lashes for an infinitely multiple-lash effect. Day by day,  a repaired and strengthened appearance is achieved for a fuller lash look.

How to enter

Entry is by Rafflecopter here. The giveaway is international. The closing date is 1 February 2015 at midnight. The winner will be contacted by e-mail and announced on Twitter. The winner will need to provide their address so entrants under 18 should have their parent’s permission to enter.
