Congratulations to Angie B.!
She is the winner of our giveaway! We will be e-mailing you shortly. You will have 72 hours from when you receive the e-mail to reply or we will have to choose another winner.
Thanks everyone for participating! 🙂 We hope that you will still continue to visit and comment on future posts!
It’s hard to believe that Swatch And Learn will be a year old on July 25th!
The single candle on our e-cake makes us happier than even tracking down that very-hard-to-find nail polish because not only have we loved getting creative through daily blogging, but we’ve also met so many kindred spirits along the way.
Reading your comments and interacting with all of you has been very rewarding. We’ve learned a lot from your contributions, and we’ve worked hard to make Swatch And Learn better. Without all of you, our blog would be nothing. You motivate us to continue!
We’ve stayed up late putting the finishing touches on posts, used the blog as an excuse to justify our makeup splurges, and shared our opinions on products we tested that worked or that didn’t. We’ve photographed our nails, our lips, our eyes, our eyelashes, and even our arms all in the name of reviews, swatches, and tutorials.
To celebrate this milestone and to thank all our readers, we’re holding a huge non-sponsored giveaway featuring products we purchased especially for this occasion.
Start Date: Now

How to Enter
Please leave a comment below (with your e-mail address) telling us something about yourself that’s related to makeup or beauty.
It could be about an eye-shadow color you love to wear, what kind of primer you use before foundation, how often you paint your nails, that you don’t wear much makeup, etc.
Although each person will only be entered once for an equal chance at winning the giveaway, please feel free to reply to fellow readers’ comments – it’s fun to interact with each other!
And while you won’t get extra entries for following us on Twitter (@SwatchAndLearn), tweeting about the giveaway, and/or following us on Google Friend Connect, we would greatly appreciate it if you did. Plus, it would be nice if you take a look around our blog and leave a comment on our other posts. We love hearing what you have to say!
How We’ll Choose the Winner
To give everyone a fair chance, we’ll be using the True Random Number Generator on Random.org to determine the winner.
Once we contact the winner, (s)he will have 72 hours (from the time we e-mail) to reply and send us their name, full mailing address, and color choice for the NYX Diamond Sparkle Lipgloss.
When we receive this, we’ll announce the winner’s name in this post and on Twitter. We’ll also put together the items and send them out ASAP.
If we contact the winner and (s)he fails to reply to our e-mail within 72 hours, we’ll use the True Random Number Generator on Random.org a second time to determine another winner.
Good luck, everyone!
