Congratulations, Candy! You’ve won!
Candy replied to my e-mail to claim her prize, so this giveaway is officially closed.
Thank you to everyone who participated! Stay tuned in the New Year – I’ve already lined up another great giveaway that nail-polish lovers may especially like. 😉
We are nearing the end of the year, and I want to thank you all for your incredible support and encouragement. There have been many days when I didn’t feel so great, but your overwhelming positive attitude really picked my spirits up.
I truly believe that when it comes to blogging, you get even more back than what you put in.
Interacting with all of you has reinforced my belief that there are lots of kind, honest, and generous people in the world. And no amount of Grinches will change my mind. (I’m stubborn like that.)
So, to give back to my loyal readers, I decided to hold a December Giveaway! 🙂 And, although my past 2 giveaways were open to Canadians only, this giveaway is open to everyone! I didn’t want to leave anyone out. (So even if you live in the desert, enter! The cuticle cream could come in handy.)
There were so many products that I wanted to include because I thought you’d enjoy them. I had to whittle it down, or I’d have to send a suitcase…haha!
Further along in this post, I’ll go into exactly what the one lucky Swatch And Learn winner will win, how to enter, and all the important details.
I thought long and hard about what to include in this giveaway since it’s a really important one. I knew that there’d be nail polish – duh! And China Glaze Party Hearty was a must because it’s hands down the best Christmas polish ever made. Plus the KleanColor Chunky Holo Purple is a rainbow in a bottle that I know some people have trouble finding, so I had to include that, too.
I also wanted to include eye, cheek, and lip stuff so that you could literally put together a simple little Face of the Day, too. 🙂 So I included many different things for you to try out. A few of these are my favourites.
What’s Up for Grabs:
How about a closer look?
All items were purchased by me, except for the Everyday Minerals blush and Sigma Makeup eye shadow, which were both free-gift-with-orders when I bought tons of stuff from those companies. This giveaway wasn’t sponsored.
(I’ve tried other Everyday Minerals blushes, and they’re some of my favourite kinds to wear because they’re usually really pigmented and they feel so light on your skin.)
Everything is brand new and unused. Anything that came sealed is still sealed.
I’ve already tried a bunch of these products – from my own stash, of course, not the actual ones you’ll be getting. If you’d like to read my reviews and see more photos, please click on the links.

How I’ll Choose the Winner & How You’ll Claim Your Prize:

Good luck in the draw, everyone!
Thank you for being the best readers I could ever ask for.
P.S. This is totally a random comment, but guess what? Two days ago was the first time I’ve ever seen Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! Haha, I think I was the last person. I thought it was really cool how Belle was really into books. You don’t see many Disney female characters who like reading. And big-bicep Gaston made me laugh, especially his little song where he says that all his decor has antlers. 😛
