To celebrate the new year, we want to give our readers the chance to win a spectacular prize–and by this, we really do mean one fantastic prize that will blow you away! But wait, we not only have one insanely large prize, but two other giveaways for our New You with New Beauty contest. For now, we give you the first of at least three giveaways for the New Year.  (But stay tuned for an amazing skincare prize bag as well as our finale prize bag–sure to blow your mind!)

Charles Worthington London wants to give you a chance to win this amazing gift basket (worth $70!) full of hair care goodies so that your hair is absolutely stylin’ all throughout 2008. To enter, readers should submit their horrifying hair stories — and if you have pictures, even better. Share your stories in the comments! :)  One lucky winner will find themselves with amazing hair for the new year.

  • One entry per person.
  • Part 1 of the contest is open to US residents only (sorry international ladies!).
  • Winner will be announced December 17th.

We pulled five random names from our RSS e-mail list, and these are today’s winners*! Each of them wins a Creme of Nature Nourishing No-Lye Relaxer System. This product is a relaxer kit that does the work with natural ingredients. The brand uses certified organic ingredients to give moisture and shine. You can find this product (and others by Creme of Nature) at local drugstores and mass retail outlets. See www.cremeofnature.com for details.

What? You want to win, too? We will be picking random readers from our RSS subscription list to receive various prizes throughout the month of November, so be sure to sign up either with the link provided below or using the subscription box to the right. We’re thinking our next prize might be MAC’s Tan Lips Set or Sephora’s Blockbuster Palette, but you never know what we might pull!

As we near the end of the year, we want to see what were the best products of 2007, and who better than to tell us than our very own readers? Take our survey and give your favorite products some love! We encourage all of our readers to help us come up with a truly representative list of products loved by Temptalia readers.

TEMPTALIA’S READERS’ CHOICE AWARDS 2007, VOTE NOW!

Quick FAQ:

  • If you don’t have an answer, feel free to state that, “I hated all the mascaras I tried this year!”
  • Please only give one answer per question. If you can’t pick between your two favorites, how can you expect us to? ;)
  • Question confusing? Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification, or just answer to the best of your knowledge. This isn’t a test, you aren’t being graded!
  • One survey per person (duplicates will be deleted).
  • These are your answers–this means put what you feel is the best/worst, whether it is a drugstore or high-end brand.

What better way than increase participation by offering prizes? We’ll be doing random giveaways to those who fill out a survey! How will I know it’s you? Answer the last question (#20), and at the end of your answer, put: “PICK ME! [insert your email address].”
