Fall Giveaway: MAC Cosmetics Gift Card

2 Nov


MAC Cosmetics has been hitting it out of the park with their latest launches.

What I’m loving lately are two products from the MACnificent Me! collection.

MACnificent Me! Eye Shadow x 9 Palette

This neutral palette includes nine shades (matte and frosted) with colors ranging from light taupe to deep brown. The palette is on the small side, but you’ll still get a lot of wear out of the shades for day or night.

MAC Studio Nail Lacquer (Simply Swinging)

This MAC Studio nail lacquer is my first nail product from MAC, and I have to say I’m impressed. The flat brush lets you apply the lacquer accurately and the formula is long-lasting. The grey-lilac tint is stunning (and not over the top if you’re not into darker nails).

How to Enter the Giveaway

Since I’m such a big fan of MAC Cosmetics, I decided that I would share my MAC love with regular and new followers of The Blush Stops Here by running an encore MAC Cosmetics Gift Card giveaway.


I’m giving away a MAC Cosmetics Gift Card to one lucky Canadian or U.S. beauty (card value is $40 CDN/$30 US). The giveaway is unsponsored, which means I’m picking up the tab for the gift card plus the postage.

Note: You can only use the gift card in MAC standalone stores (not at MAC counters in department stores).


To enter the giveaway, make sure that you follow @blushstopshere on Twitter and RT the giveaway details before Thursday, November 12 (12 p.m. PST).

A random winner will be chosen and contacted on Twitter. The winner has 24Β hours to reply with a mailing address or a new winner will be drawn.

Additional Entries

Want another chance to win a MAC Cosmetics Gift Card? It’s easy!

To get additional entries, do either or both of the following:

  1. Leave a brief comment below describing what you enjoy reading about on beauty blogs (let me know your Twitter/Instagram name if it’s different from the name you’re commenting under).
  2. Follow me on Instagram at https://instagram.com/blushstopshere/.

Quick Note: Please don’t follow just to win this giveaway. If you follow and then unfollow, unfortunately you won’t be able to enter future contests.


Congratulations to @henglish who won this giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered and followed me. I really appreciate your killer comments which will definitely inspire future blog posts!

Drop by my blog any time or say hi on Twitter or Instagram. Or, let me know if:

    I love reviews of products, tutorials are always fun to watch and try to duplicate the look, also I like anything related to sensitive skin because my skin is very sensitive so learning which products are more irritating than others is very helpful for me.
