A few weeks ago I got some news that truly just made my day…I won something! I can’t remember the last time I actually won anything and to be honest, I’m kinda stumped how it happened but I definitely won’t complain. I was so excited when I found out, my husband told me he hadn’t seen that big of a smile on my face for a while. Which was a little embarrassing, because that seems kind of shallow….but whatever. I guess I’m shallow! It was a nice surprise!
How I won: I’m on Twitter (@classic_maggie – follow me!) and I follow Dave Lackie (@davelackie), who is the Editor of BEAUTY the guide as well as a beauty expert on a Canadian daytime show called Cityline. He is always giving away free beauty products on his Twitter and Instagram Accounts (davelackie) and most of the time all you have to do is follow him and re-tweet his tweets to enter and win. I retweeted his tweet a few hours before this particular contest expired and I won! That was obviously just pure luck as I’m pretty sure most of his followers don’t tend to win that quickly (I’ve only been following him for a month or so), but I guess someone has to win, right?
What I won: Dave was giving away a Shiseido Ultimune Eye on Beauty Set which included:
Studio Oh! Guilded Journal (totally using this to jot down blog ideas!)
Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate (can’t find this online)
I’m super excited to give these all a try, even the ones that are out slightly out of my comfort zone (the blue eye shadow palette and the super bright lip gloss)! I don’t think I’ve ever tried any Shiseido products so I’m anxious to see how they stack up, especially given that they are a higher-end brand, with the price tags to match. I’ll be doing a full review of all of these in a couple weeks so keep an eye out for that!
In the meantime, I highly recommend you go give Dave a follow on Twitter and/or Instagram because who knows, you yourself could be a winner too! (Disclaimer: I don’t get anything for suggesting you to do this, nor was I asked to – it’s just a super easy way to win free beauty products! Plus I’m super grateful and thankful for my prize and I wanted to share the wealth!)
