I had a lucky week!

If you have me as a friend on Facebook you know I enter quite a few of giveaways because that's the majority of what my posts are about.  Most are super easy to enter and a couple require more work.  My favorites are of course the easy entry ones that you just like and share on Facebook, followed by the ones that maybe just want your email or are Facebook only entry, the rest are ones you have to like a bunch of pages on Facebook and follow on Twitter.  I've done a couple of those ones, but have never been lucky enough to win any of those, so I only enter those ones when it's something I really chocolate(lots of chocolate) or Keurig.

Two weeks ago or so I had a lucky week as I won a "like and share" giveaway AND an email entry giveaway.   First I found out that I won one of Miliani Cosmetics 10th Anniversary giveaways they were doing called 10 10 10 which stood for 10 products, 10 winners, 10 days.  Like most giveaways, I see something free and don't pay attention to what all is included.  I knew it was cosmetics, but never really paid attention to what was included.  I just heard from friends that it was a good giveaway and I should at least try.  So try I did and a winner I became!  I was totally shocked when I got the email saying I had won, but totally excited too.  About a week later I got a box delivered and when I opened it this is what I found inside:

Look at all that beautiful makeup!  Two eyeliners, an eyeshadow pencil, mascara, shimmery eyeshadow, blush, illuminating face powder, nail treatment lacquer,  nail polish, "Runway Eyes" eye shadow and lip gloss.

I think I hit the jackpot on that one and I can't wait to try all of it out.  I don't think I've ever used liquid eyeliner, so that will be fun to play with along with the eyeshadows.  I may have to bring back my false eyelashes!

About two days after finding out I won the Milani giveaway, I entered a "like/share/comment" contest on Facebook from one of the pages I follow (Lucky's Bingo Corner).  They do nightly giveaways of all kinds of little goodies, you never know what you might win until after you win.  All you have to do is, well to start with "Like" their page so you can see when they do the giveaways.   Then when you see the special picture post for the day(November was a giant turkey, December is Santa and his sleigh, and non-holiday months are the "Lucky Bus") you have to like and share the picture and comment whatever the phrase for the picture is(Gobbley Goo for the turkey, Ho Ho Ho for Santa and Beep Beep for the bus).  You have an hour to do this and then the announce the winner.  Well, one time it was me!  Just like the email for the other giveaway, I was surprised to see my name had been chosen.  So, what did I win you ask.....this:

A beautiful eyeshadow pallette and mascara from 29 cosmetics.  Both came in beautiful metallic containers.  From what I hear this is "the good stuff", so don't be fooled by the quantity on this one.  This was NOT a cheap giveaway.  Plus, I really do love the colors in this pallette.

Since I really know nothing about either company I went online to check both brands out and they both seem like they have some really nice stuff, with the latter being much more pricier.  I'm looking forward to trying out all the makeup I got.

So, if you are my friend on Facebook and see me post a link for the giveaway, let this be a reminder as to why you want to enter.  Will you always win?  No, but you definitely will never win if you don't enter.
