CLOSED: Blog Halfsary Giveaway: Benefit Primping with the Stars Beauty Kit!

Hello everyone! I've reached another milestone and though my blog halfsary isn't until tomorrow (the 14th,) I decided to put this post up early so that the giveaway can be active as soon as the clock strikes 12mn tonight :)

EDIT: I've decided to start this giveaway as of posting so that those who frequently check in can get extra points on daily entries :)

I've recently been hit with my 100th post and 25,000th view a few weeks ago. It sucks so bad that I wasn't able to prepare a Rafflecopter in time for that when I already had my goodies planned :( The 100th post just came at me out of nowhere! That's pretty weird considering I own this blog and am the only one who writes in here, but oh well.

As a delayed thank you for my 100th post and 25,000th view (and an on-time thank you for my blog halfsary,) I am giving away a lovely Benefit Primping with the Stars Beauty Kit! You guys don't know how hard it is to let go of this gorgeous kit. I am so tempted to keep it for myself! For me to raffle it off just shows how thankful I am for the people who share, interact and suggest cool ideas on this blog :)

My blog halfsary giveaway

This giveaway, like my past giveaways, is not sponsored. It's just a sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart to my lovely readers <3 I don't think I'd be able to keep this blog up and running for this long without the interactions and shares of all my readers :) I took a picture of it at the shop so that once it was sealed at the cashier, I wouldn't be tempted to touch/play with it before the winner gets her hands on it!

What's Inside?

For Spring 2013, Benefit is releasing their iconic favorites for the face, cheeks, eyes and lips in this super cute beauty kit. Inside:

  1. Stay Don't Stray Eye Primer
  2. The Porefessional Face Primer
  3. Some Kinda-A Gorgeous Foundation (in Medium)
  4. BeneTint Lip and Cheek Tint
  5. Girl Meets Pearl Highlighter
  6. They're Real! Mascara
  7. BONUS: Tips and Tricks booklet to help you make the most of these Benefit faves!

I love Benefit's boxed sets. Primping with the Stars claims to have all their best-sellers and I'm finding that to be true. Hello: Porefessional, BeneTint, Girl Meets Pearl and They're Real! <- cult classics which I absolutely adore!

I don't see a lot of reviews from Filipina bloggers about Stay Don't Stray and Some Kind-A Gorgeous but I did a quick swatch at the counter and they're predictably trust-worthy, just like all Benefit goodies. I'm so jealous of whoever's winning!
