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.
