Hi my name is simplypoison on twitter…and i think i should win becuase Ive always wanted a rose themed collection becuase me and my partners middle names are rose. So this collection is extra special to me.

i would love to win this since i have never tried a lip stain and i put my faith in MAC to have a good one.

I want to win because I’ve been eying the see thru lip colours since they were revealed but the nearest MAC store is quite out of the way for me, plus I just spent most of my extra money on the NYX sale. x: haha

I think I should win because I’m a huge loyal fan of your blog, I never win anything 🙁 and I’m MAC obsessed! x

I’d love to win because I’ve never tried this product and I’m sure it’s not available where I live.

I’d absolutely LOVE to win this!! I’ve never tried anything like it before, and I’m sure MAC will make me a believer!

I’d like to win because it’s such a pretty colour and I want it so badly, but I don’t have a MAC anywhere near me and I don’t have the money to buy it.

Twitter: SeulTrahi

I’d love to try a lip stain instead of heavy lipsticks, and I love MAC in general.

I would love to win because I love lip stains! They last longer than lipsticks and they give the lips that pop! I use lip stains on my cheeks too

I would love to win this because I’ve never tried a MAC see-thru lip color! It looks so pretty and perfect for all of the summer days when I am getting hot and sweaty teaching dance!

I’d love to win because I’m looking for something long-lasting for my wedding next month!

I would *love* to win because I think it would be my HG color! I’ve got super fair skin (with freckles) and pigmented lips, I think this would work out!

Still haven’t tried any rose romance stuff! I love trying new products and would love to win this great product!!

I’d love to win because Secret Crush is the one thing I really want from the whole Rose Romance collection, but I haven’t been able to buy it because I’ve been really sick for two weeks and stuck in the house… not to mention broke because I have been out of work!

This seems like an interesting product and I would like to try it out to see how it works on me.

Would love to win this because I love the way stains look. So subtle, but with a pop of color.

I’d love to win this because I didn’t end up buying any of the see-thru lipcolors, but would really like to try one!

twitter: thebackseatsman

I’d love to win because I’m still looking for the right lip product, and I haven’t tried lip-stain yet. And given MAC’s reputation for quality, it would be a fabulous place to start. ^__^
Twitter: UnblessedLemon

I want to win b/c I have all the eyeshadows and pigments in this collection but no lipstick or blush 🙂

I want to win because I LOVE the See Thru Lip Stains! A couple of years ago I went through at least 2 of “Not So Shy” See Thru. They’re great alone or under a l/s or a gloss. If I wasn’t restricted money wise I’d buy a few :o)

I got so excited about this contest that I forgot to add:

I would love to win because the Rose Romance Collection is sooo pretty and I’d never won anything 🙂

twitter: Lucyluz

I’d like to win this because this is a collection that I am unable to purchase anything from–darn economy. The see-thru lip colors were probably the only thing that interested me in this collection as well…

Hi! I really want to win this lip stain, because it would be an extremely useful product for me. I am always on the go and never have time to reapply makeup. This stain is the perfect shade for me and would be my go-to item! Plus, I am a MAC addict! I use their products almost exclusively, but I haven’t been able to afford any new products lately because I am not working much (I’m a full time student). Please help a broke girl out! Thanks!

I want to win because its almost my birthday, and its my sixteenth birthday : ) And I’ve been wanting a lip stain from MAC

I wanna win because I’d love to try this! I’m following on twitter as “calidreamin87” and I’m subscribed by email!

I would love to win because I have been wanting to try a lip stain for awhile, but for some reason I never think to get one while I am shopping… 🙂

Haha it’s funny how you make us all give reasons why we want it-and then chose the winner at random 🙂 like many others, I’m just too poor for MAC right now so this is the only way I’d get it! I’ve never tried these See through lip colours before… could be fun! Plus roses are my favourite flower and I had been looking forward to this collection and now have to pass it-so sad!

This, to me, is the most interesting product in the collection, so I’d love to try it out

What do you mean by “tell us”. Are you sponsored by MAC? u lucky!
I want to win because I don’t have any lipstains.

I would like to win Secret Crush Lip Stain. I’m not sure I would like a lip stain, but would like to try it.

I want to win this SO badly! I have never got to try any MAC products (budget issues) and I have to pay for my own makeupp

My twitter: MKatSJA

thx for holding this contest, and good luck to all!

I would LOVE to win because I never win anything and I’m poor as hell and seriously need this lipstain! It’s gorgeous.

I think this was the prettiest of the three See Thru Glosses because it gave you that “I was just making out look.” So pretty and lasted the whole day when I tried it on in the store, but alas I could not buy it. So please pick me because it looked beautiful on me and I LOVE it! Muah!

i think i should win because i believe in natural beauty, and although dont wear much make up, this see thru lip colour is one thing i would wear because its subtle but pretty and it would be the only makeup id wear everyday to anything. 🙂 i love it!

I would like to win because I’ve never used a lip stain before and am interested in trying it out.
twitter: Chinandjuide

i would love to win because i’ve been dyyyiiiiing to try one of the see thru colors and secret crush looks awesome~!

I’ve gotta win this!!!!!!I haven’t won anything much at all before, and I cannot afford MAC at the moment….so I can’t try out any MAC stuff that I really want. I have a few hand-me-downs but that’s it 🙁

By the time I got to my Nordie’s the lip stains were sold out. I would love to win this so that I can enjoy what everyone says is a great product.

I’d like to win because this will save me some money when the collection is released here in a few days!

Twitter: kirkichi

perfect for summer … all the eating and drinking with friends i wont have to worry about the colour coming off and having to reapply often… i would luv to win this one! its also tiny enough to slip into a pocket or clutch.

I’d love to win because it seems straight up my alley and there’s nothing similar in the permanent line.
Twitter: bobek_taken

Thank You!

Hi! I want to win because i’m new to make up and love MAC products! I love the rose romance and I’ve always wanted to try a lip stain and this will match me perfectly! Thanks!

I’d love to win this because it would be the only secret crush in my life! It looks really pretty and we all need a little pretty in our lives.

i’m in my 30’s and i still have a secret crush. teehee.. hope i win this hoping he’d notice me in a special way. teehee.. 😉

Unemployed. No more unemployment. Babysitting for $40 for 9 hours OMG and I’m 34 – a real winner. Haven’t bought MAC since I was let go from my job for having internal bleeding/bleeding ulcers. Work in Florida, they can fire you for any reason, including almost dying. Would cry tears of joy to receive some MAC – it’s been so long – I feel like I’m going thru MAC-opause. Get it? Menopause..MAC-opause? OK I’m not funny. Thanks for your site and sharing your out of this world skillz.

Hi Christine,

I’d like to win because my local Nordstrom’s has been sold out of this shade and this would be a good chance to try it out. Also, it looks pretty good on everyone I’ve seen it on so far, lol.

Twitter : elenavivequi

I’d like to win because I LOVE lipsticks though I hate reapplying it over and over thought the day and I was told lipstains last a really long time with out needing a new application. Thanks for your consideration 🙂

I’d like to win because I am just getting in to lip colors and I just adore the colors of mac’s lip stains and the new rose romance collection!

I’d love to win this because it looks like such a beautiful color and I don’t have any of the lipsticks in this collection : )


Ohh! Ohh! Pick me to win! 🙂 I haven’t tried anything from this collection yet either…. Looks awesome!
