Clumps 4th Anniversary: Giveaway! NYC New York Color palette & lip stain!

Words can’t explain how excited I am to be giving away one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes. It’s funny because I didn’t think I would ever be a mega fan of NYC New York Color’s shadows. Back in the day, while their shadows were still affordable, they pretty much sucked when it came to  staying on the lid. The colors were not at all pigmented and were pretty blah. But oooooh, girl…have they stepped their game UUUUP! The IndividualEyes Custom Compact palette in Park Central is rockin’ my world.

Giveaway! Caress Fine Fragrance Elixir body washes!

Ooooh yes, darlings…as we continue to celebrate Clumps of Mascara’s 4th anniversary, I’ve got another fantastic giveaway. Brace yourself for this one. This giveaway will make your summer a little sweeter…

Have you seen these gorgeous body washes in stores yet? I saw them at my local Target and fell in love at first whiff. I held from purchasing because my skin has been ultra sensitive; leaving me only able to use specially prescribed soaps and lotions. But that doesn’t mean a Clumps guy or gal can’t win one of these decadent body washes.

Clumps Turns 3 was a Hit!

Clumps Turns 3 was the biggest anniversary celebration to date. I mean, it was HUGE! We received over 2,000 giveaway submissions. That’s a lot! Winners have not been selected for every giveaway and some giveaways are still running (including the BIG giveaway) so be sure to search Clumps’ archives to see what you’ve missed. I will post the Winners’ List as soon as all giveaways come to an end.

My mission for celebrating Clumps’ 3rd anniversary for an entire week was to shower Clumps’ fans and supporters with the opportunities to win some of my favorite products. This would NOT have been possible without my sponsors. As much as I love y’all, I would go broke spending more than $1,000 on products to give away.

Special thanks to  Avalon Organics, Beauty Ticket, China Glaze, Clarisonic, Clinique, Colgate, COVERGIRL, Diamond Cosmetics, EcoTools, Lancôme, Mario Badescu, Maybelline,
Milani, NYX, Reach, Sally Hansen, Softlips, Surgicare, tarte, Zoya and more.

To my Board of Directors…thank you ALL as I would not have been been able to get the word out without you guys.

Thank you to my fellow blog sisters who posted about Clumps! That includes Beauty Rookie, Gangstarr Girl, Vex in the City, StaceFace75’s  video, Ask Me What’s, Dirty Pretty Thangs, Coup de Couer, Milan Rouge, This That Beauty and countless others. And who can forget about those of you that re-tweeted giveaways, told your Facebook friends and emailed friends and family members the flyer. Thank you SOOOO much.

Thank you Clutch Mag!

A huge hug to Gee from Afro Glitz…she knows why.

I started Clumps out of nowhere and I am so humbled that it has reached women all over. If you don’t think Clumps can get any better, stay tuned…I have A LOT in store and our 4th anniversary will be even bigger!

Clumps Turns 3: Clarisonic giveaway!

I thought long and hard about the things that I wanted to give away for this year’s anniversary celebration. I wanted to give you guys the chance to win products that I loved. From my favorite nail polish lines to mascaras that rocked my world, I wanted to give y’all the opportunity to experience what I’ve experienced…products that actually do what they say they are going to do.

But if there is one product that I can say truly saved the way I felt about myself, it would be the Clarisonic Mia. I remember first purchasing it and being like, “Did I really spend THAT much money on a face brush?” But I was desperate because my skin was hectic.

I used to cry when I looked in the mirror. I couldn’t see my beauty beyond the acne. The Clarisonic was instrumental in my helping my acne clear up. Yes y’all…this brush truly saved my skin and allowed me to feel beautiful again.

But don’t get it twisted. True beauty really comes from inside. And I know I sound like some greeting card, but it’s true. I’ve always had issues with the gap between my teeth, my large lips and bushy brows, but it wasn’t until fair recently when I’ve begun to accept it all. This final giveaway’s question is all about what makes you feel beautiful. I hope that whatever it is, you continue to keep it in your life (as long as its positive). You are a Queen and deserve nothing but all of the happiness this world has to offer.

So without further ado…have your chance at winning the Clarisonic Mia.

Love you guys and good luck! You can add your entry by visiting here or submitting it in the contest box.
