Wow what an amazing giveaway! Ofcourse I’m joining in. I’m really looking forward to Cle de Peau products, I dont own anything from that brand yet but I’ve seen such good things here on your blog. Thanks for doing this Christine (and Ebates!). 🙂

Ren Avatar

Ebates is awesome 🙂 Last quarter my credit card company was doing 5% cashback on online shopping, and Sephora and Ulta were constantly 8% cashback, I didn’t feel guilty about buying so much makeup at all! (Well, maybe just a bit)

Claudia Avatar

What a great contest! I love the idea of runner up prizes.
I love ebates also! Learned about it through you and I haven’t looked back! Just got a whole bunch back today on work clothes.
Thanks for the contest! I can’t tell you enough how much I love your site and how it’s enhaced my love of makeup over the past few years I’ve been visiting 🙂

Rochielle Avatar

i’m most excited for the hourglass lip treatment oil! but honestly, i’d be happy with anything. I really can’t afford these products on my own lol 🙁

Jana Avatar

I think I might be most excited for the Hourglass lip treatment oil, or the Guerlain lipstick in Rose Dressing. However, I’ve also had my eye on the Guerlain Garconne Rouge G….I wouldn’t mind the 3rd place prize either!

Shars Avatar

I’m excited about the Cle de Peau highlighter after your rave review. I’m also excited about the Guerlain Garconne Rouge G… such a gorgeous colour!

Rhea Avatar

oh myyy chrstine, i couldn’t be more excited about this contest! i’m so thrilled even just with the prospect of winning the cle de peau sand beige luminizing face enhancer, or the guerlain garconne rouge G! can’t help but oggle these too, but they’re both too rich for my blood, haha. crossing my fingers and toes. NGL, if i win any of these, it’ll feel like christmas again.

Thanks for this lovely n huge giveaway, i would love to win Cle de Peau Sand Beige Luminizing Face Enhancer or Tom Ford Love Lust Cheek Color Blush they are amazing and like a dream 🙂

jessica Avatar

I would be most excited by the Cle de Peau highlighter. It’s the only brand of these I haven’t tried because it’s so cost prohibitive!

Gina Avatar

You have some stunning favorites Christine! I can’t pick which I’d be more excited for, but I’ve yet to try a highlighter that I like so probably the Cle de Peau Luminizing Face Enhancer.

Rene Avatar

The Cle De Peau and Tom Ford products are the reason I am entering. I use the Cle De Peau concealer and the Tom Ford Firelust highlighter but can never justify buying their other products. Hoping I win so I can try other things front their lines.

sue Avatar

How is it that you were able to put together products from my favorite brands?!!

I loved Cle de Peau winter collection and their packaging was so adorable!! i had my eyes on their Luminizing Face Enhancer for some time now but i never got the chance to actually try it since the store is located pretty far from where i live…

My first time with Givenchy lipstick was a sample from Sephora and I instantly fell in love with its texture and the way the color sits on my lips~ that’s when I turned to lipsticks from lip tints! My first lipstick was Givenchy!

I’m obsessed with lipsticks and am collecting one by one (I visit temptalia everyday just to check on any news on new lipsticks!!) and lip oil from Hourglass would be amazing to prep my chapped lips for my lipstick collections!

I’m a fan of liquid eyeliner and never got around to try pencil or gel eyeliner…i don’t have double eyelids and so found them to smudge easily! But im definitely willing to give this Gel Eyeliner a try since it’s from Marc Jacobs!!

Erin Avatar

I’ve never tried anything like the Cle de Peau Sand Beige Luminizing Face Enhancer, so I’d love to give it a go, as well as the lip treatment. Thanks!

Nicole Avatar

Double points on Ebates..sweet! And what a very generous giveaway Christine! I have been debating on the Cle de Peau highlighter. But could never bring myself to purchase it beacuse of the price to get it with the case! It’s a beauty. Even the runners-up are going to be some lucky beauty lovers! A Rouge G..I dream of day I will have one..a girl can dream,lol!

Sarah Pennington Avatar

I LOVE Ebates! I’ve received over $50 back from them since signing up. Which, considering my online shopping addiction, makes me feel a little less guilty.

Thanks for the opportunity, Christine! I would be happy to receive any of your favourites but if I had to choose one that I would be most excited for it would have to be the Marc Jacob Beauty Intro(vert) Gel Eyeliner. Marc’s products are some of my favourite luxury items (the lipsticks alone…ughhh). I have a couple eyeliners from the brand but they are only the staple colours (black and brown) so it would be fun to try out a bright one! (Might even distract me from all the snow.)

Christine, you’ve turned me into a Guerlain junkie! Though I’ve worn Shalimar for years, I’d never tried their makeup until I saw a review from you. Now I own foundation, powder, Meteorites, lipsticks and lipgloss (which is not easy on a grad student budget!) So for me, the Guerlain Garçonne Rouge G would be the best prize.

Rhoda Avatar

I am most excited about the Cle de Peau Luminizing Face Enhancer as I’ve really wanted a good highlighter/luminizer. But all the prizes “favorites” sound wonderful!

Trina Avatar

I’m stuck between 2. I’ve always wanted both so badly but it’s pricey! Tom Ford blush & Peau luminizer. I would be happy if i was lucky enough to just 1 of those, so the thought of winning all the rest makes me speechless! Thanks so much.

Megan Avatar

Wow – amazing prizes! To be truthful I’d actually like to win second prize as much as first ( I have the face enhancer in sand beige and love it, but I don’t use it so often or heavily that I really need a back up). I’m such a nerd for blush and I don’t have Tom Ford’s Love Lust somehow. So getting that would be super awesome. Thanks for the opportunity, Christine (& Ebates)!

Jan Witsoe Avatar

Temptalia turned me on to Ebates! and I love receiving refunds since nearly all of my shopping is done online.

Obviously I’ve not one any of your great contests. Yet :o) Where can I find the winner’s names?

laurin Avatar

wish i would be lucky enough to win any of the prizes! ;p….i’ve never tried most of those brands but the marc jacobs liner would be so exciting!

Cory Avatar

Oh this is a super exciting one!!! I’ve been dying to try Marc Jacobs Intro(Vert) gel eyeliner ever since you 1st wrote about it!! I love teal anything too. I bought the L’ORÉAL Silkissime in True Teal, but I think the Marc Jacobs teal is more green, which I like. Plus I’m dying to try that formula. The entire line up is amazing, like to drool for amazing, but that Marc Jacobs liner & the Cle-De-Peau luminizer are the most exciting to me… Love this!!! You rock!!!

Sarah Avatar

I’m really excited to try the Cle de Peau face powder! I’ve never used anything from that brand but have heard amazing things about it. 🙂

Liza Avatar

TOM FORD LOVE LUST YES YES YES!!! I’ve been in love and dying for this for so long. Being a broke college student who’s blood is too rich for her means really sucks haha. Also, Cle de Peau’s luminizer is just too beautiful but much much too rich for my means right now. =(

beka Avatar

just went to neiman’s today and had a cle de peau makeover. she used the luminizer on me, but i haven’t bought yet. i love all of your picks.
