I’m excited!! Everything looks like so much fun! Love the colors, would not mind trying those Nars products, I’ve never tried their line. I need to get on it!

Oh – I wish I’d known. I signed up with ebates (they didn’t seem to have a problem with me being in Canada) but if the give-away is only for the US, I got my hopes up for nothing (mind you, I never win anything anyway….)

I would absolutely love the Nars set for switching looks quickly throughout the day! I’m a busy girl trying to pull myself through school and three jobs so a new lipstick change can make you feel as fresh as you’re going to feel with only five hours of sleep hah!

I’m not quite sure what you mean about gift card – but I would use the makeup products to create new looks that I am unfamiliar with. If it was a gift card – sephora shopping spree!

Fixed! The fine print was from the previous giveaway, so it is updated now 🙂 Anyone who entered either way will still be counted!

The question said what would I use the gift card for, but I don’t see mention of a gift card. Most excited about the full frontal lipstick stash.

That’s a huge giveaway, Christine! I’m planning on picking up the Ambient Lighting Blush palette anyway, if not for me then for a friend for Christmas. Thanks for the heads up about Ebates!

During the Sephora Friends and Family sale, I had a small family emergency and had to fly to Haiti. Although everything is fine, I missed most of the sale and didn’t get to shop until the 10th, which was the last day! Needless to say, almost everything I wanted was sold out, including the Bite Beauty Remix. I’ve been searching high and low for that set.

I’d love to gift the Hourglass Palette and the Bite Beauty Remix to my sister who’s a makeup novice, it would be the perfect gift. I’d gift the eye ensemble to my little cousin who just started college. I’d gift the MakeUp Forever set to myself 🙂 And give one of the lip sets to one of my co workers.

Thanks for the chance.

oh my goodness I’d love to try the hourglass palette…never had the opportunity to try anything from hourglass before and I’d love to! the nars pencils look so nice as well..

I would first use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. I’ve been very into creating a flawless looking face this winter, and I’ve been OBSESSED with different shades of blush! Love the porcelain skin look with some color on the cheeks.

this is a great idea. i don’t know why i haven’t been using ebates-its a great idea. i haven’t tried any hourglass powders, so the blushes would be the first thing i would try. thanks for doing this giveaway!

This is amazing! I don’t know which product I’d use first, but it would be so much fun to have to figure that out! I’ve been an ebates member for several years and use it regularly (I have the browser bar to remind me) and have received over $300 cash back! – all for stuff I was going to buy anyway.

Love Temptalia and love ebates!! Both have been a big part of internet life this past year! And the grand prize is awesome, I don’t own any of that stuff but I’ve read the reviews for each and they all seem wonderful!

I would love to try out the mufe studio case followed by the hourglass blush palette since these are 2 products I have never tried..thanks for the giveaway!

I hate it when I forget to use Ebates! I Think I’ve gotten $25 back so far. After the holidays I should get alot more. I do all my shopping online.

Hi Christine!

I would immediately swipe on one of the hourglass blushes on my cheeks, a NARS crayon on my lips (probably the pinky nude one), and make a pretty eyeshadow combination with the MUFE eyeshadows from the studio case. Everything looks amazinggggg!

Wow, this is seriously a list of MY favorite things that I’ve been eyeing this season. I would love to get my hands on that blush palette.

Always loved Temptalia!! Was never able to try Hourglass products, but always enjoyed the photos and the other informations here on Temptalia.. I wish I get to try those first Christine!!!
Thank you!!

For EBATES, does one need to sign up with the email account that is registered at the shopping sites? Or doesn’t it matter? Please, I hope for an answer?! Thanks 😛

I would use the Makeup Forever studio case first. I have been dying to try the new formula. I have been sooooo tempted to buy it. i have resisted so far!

I’d probably want to use the Hourglass blushes first – I’m quite eager to try them and see if one of the shades would work well for me (most seemed a bit too warm) since I really like the Ambient pressed powders.

I would try the Hourglass Blush Pallet, first! That’s a no brainer! Love my hourglass ambient lighting pallet, so the blush pallet will compliment it beautifully.

Such a great giveaway! 😀 I’d probably play with the NARS pencil set first. I’m so on the fence because I’m not sure how flattering the colors will be on my weird skin tone.

The UD Lipstick stash is what I would have to use first, because I just keep staring at it and trying to tell myself I don’t need it.

What an AMAZING giveaway! I would definitely use the Hourglass blush palette first. I have heard so many good things about this palette. However, on a student budget this remains on my wish list. Congrats in advance to whomever wins!! :o)

Oops I forgot to say which product I would use first, got a little too excited I guess 🙂 I would use the Hourglass blush palette first FOR SURE!

This giveaway is amazing! The Ambient Lighting Blush Palette has been calling to be for a while now. And the Nars lip pencils. And pretty much all of it. Such an amazing and generous giveaway!

I would use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette first and then a lipstick from the Urban Decay Full Frontal Stash next. I would love to gift the rest.

OOOhs and awws! Fabulous giveaway! I so want to win! 🙂 I would be delving into the Sephora Collection first as I have never used Sephora’s brand of shadows.

What an awesome giveaway – thank you. I’ve been wanting to try the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette so that’s what I am looking forward to trying first.

I’ve heard so many great things about the Nars lip pencils but haven’t had a chance to try them myself – those would definitely be the first!

I love your giveaways! One of these days I’ll have to be lucky enough 🙂

First, I’d use the entire Nars set. I’ve been eyeing it every time I go to sephora.

I’m drooling over this giveaway lol! The first thing I would use first is definitely the Ambient Blush palette, I’ve been eyeing it but haven’t committed to purchasing it just yet.

I would love to win the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette! I haven’t been able to find it in my store or available online. Thank you for having this giveaway.

How fun – thanks for the chance to win! I think I’d try the lip products first…Nars and then the Urban Decay. I splurged on the Hourglass palette during the VIB sale but I’m sure I could find someone to gift it to! 🙂

Between the NARS, the Hourglass & the MUFE, it’s hard to know what to use first! I’d probably use the Hourglass first as it gives such a lovely glow. Thanks for the gorgeous giveaway, Christine!

I would love to try out the Make Up For Ever train case because I have a thing for eyeshadows. At the same time I love anything from Nars. Such an awesome giveaway! Thank you!

I would definitely use the MUFE studio case first! All of those things are hard to get or unavailable in Australia, so it’d be a heck of a haul! All of those are on my Christmas wishlist, in fact. XD

Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I think I would try the Urban Decay lipsticks first, because I haven’t tried them out yet and really want to. 🙂

This is such an AMAZING & GRACIOUS GIVEAWAY! !! Ty sooo much for the chance to win♡♡♡ I wd love any of these..I wd love the nars lip pencils!!! Ty again this is s oooo AMAZING

What an amazing giveaway ! I would definitely try the hourglass blush palette because everyone raves about it, but it is just to expensive for me. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I’d use the Hourglass Blush Palette first! I’m OBSESSED with blush and I’ve always wanted to try their ambient powders but never got the chance.

I’m in between the Hourglass ambient light blush palette and the Urban decay lipstick stash. Though honestly everything on this list looks amazing! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win some fun stuff =]

So many great products to choose from but I would probably play with the Urban Decay lipsticks first because I know I already love the formula and would want to see how the colors looked on me.

I’d probably get into the blush palette first, but the UD lipsticks would be a close second! Both of those things have been on my wishlist for a while now.
Awesome giveaway!

I would us the Hourglass blush palette first. I just got the Hourglass ambient palette during the VIB Sephora sale. I love Hourglass and would use that first.

I’m gasping and in love with EVERYTHING, but I’d probably run to swatch all those Nars pencils on my lips! This is beautifully curated and I would be so so happy to win this for Christmas!

I’ve been following your blog for couple of years now and I must say you are doing an awesome job!! Just wait for your input before buying any cosmetic. Keep up the great work going. All the best.

I’d love to give the Hourglass ambient lighting blushes a try as well as the Bite beauty lip pencils! Thanks for the opportunities Christine 🙂

Oooh, I really want to try the Hourglass lighting blush set! It’s a bit too pricey for my budget right now but the swatches of them are just so beautiful!

Definitely the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush palette. Although I’m a complete sucker for lip products, those blushes look so amaaaaazing!

Oh how I would love to win this prize! The first item I would use would most definitely be the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette!!! Thank you, Christine!

I really hate the fact that these products aren’t available in my country and i want this sooo bad!
I don’t think you gonna send me those products but if you don’t try you can’t win 😉

I’ve wanted to try MUFE shadow formula for a long time now, but I think with the cold, dry weather hitting us, the Hourglass blushes would be really lovely for brightening winter skin!

I would probably use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette first. I used a total of two blushes for my makeup looks, so I def need more blushes to expand my range. Thank you for this awesome giveaway. Im super excited!!

So happy that I have discovered your site this year (through the help of the YouTube community that I follow) your reviews and swatches/comparisions/dupes have changed the way I shop for makeup. Love this giveaway! Thanks!!

Thank you so much for hosting this amazing giveaway! Good luck to everyone entering. 🙂

As for your question… if I won, I would definitely use the UD Full Frontal Lipstick Stash first. I’ve been wanting to try out bolder lips, and Gash looks like the perfect way to start.

I would totally use the studio case by MUFE first, I’ve been wanting to try out their newly reformulated eye shadows! Thanks for the giveaway! Temptalia and ebates, what’s not to love!?

I would try the UD Full Frontal stuff first b/c I’ve never used anything from UD besides their Naked palettes, Zero 24/7 pencil & a Lip Junkie (that I didn’t really care for)

love your giveaways! 🙂 your site has been so helpful because you break down and critique items in a sufficient manner that helps my decision in purchasing the items 🙂 thanks!

I was thisclose to purchasing the UD lipstick stash during their 20% off sale, now I wish I had!!! Definitely would use it first! 🙂

I would try the Sephora All Ocassion Eye Ensemble, NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Set first. Then try Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash, followed by Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, and Makeup Forever Studio Case.

Wow, all of these products look amazing.
