It's Giveaway Time!!! ☺

     Hi, my sea-dwellling friends!  It's time for the Makeup Mermaid to dive into her Under the Sea Treasure Chest and choose a special trinket to share with you!
     Remember that Wet N Wild 'I'm Feelin' Retro' Eyeshadow trio I swatched for you last night? Well, I got an extra one for a special reader that will be chosen at random!
     All of you makeup junkies out there know that it's fun to talk to your friends about great beauty finds, tips, and tricks, and that's what I love about writing this blog - I feel like I'm talking to all my girlfriends (or guyfriends)! There will be no bias with this contest, whether I know you personally, or not, everyone has an equal chance to win.
     Here is how you enter:
1. Leave a comment below and tell me your ABSOLUTE favorite beauty product/brand, (the one that if you were on a stranded island like LOST, you would have to take with you!) and why it is your favorite.
2. Subscribe to this blog by e-mail by entering in your e-mail address in the upper right-hand corner of this blog-page. If you are already subscribed by e-mail to this blog, then you only have to leave a comment below. But you do have to be subscribed by e-mail AND leave a comment to win.

     The winner will win one (1) Wet N Wild 'I'm Feelin' Retro' Eyeshadow trio and will be notified by e-mail. The deadline to enter this contest is March 1, 2011.

I hope you enjoy, and I look forward to reading your comments!!!

Love and Seashells,
 the Makeup Mermaid

UPDATE: The results are in, and the winner is Jennifer Martin! I will be contacting you by e-mail, and I really and truly thank you all for reading and entering! Please e-mail me with any questions, and I look forward to you entering in giveaways in the future!


  1. My favorite brand is MAC b/c majority of the products are so wonderful from the eye shadows to the brushes! And the product I can't leave with out is mascara!! I love mascara it just makes your eyes and face pop!!

  2. I would say eye liner and lipstick. Avon has the black eyeliner and the lipstick I like but I dont know anybody that sales it anymore:( Im searching for something else.

  3. @Mary Wilkey - you are right, MAC has some great products. I love their lipsticks! @Suse aloo, I'm sure we can find a replacement black eyeliner.

  4. Like Suse said, I LOOOOVE my avon black eye liner. I love to try new things! Absolutely love the eyeshadow you have listed! <3

  5. My favorite product would be Cover Girl's Blended Minerals blush in Shimmering Sands. It's messy, but it's beautiful and makes my cheeks glow!

  6. @Jennifer Martin, you are definitely right about it being messy! I tried to take the plastic sifter out one time, and it spilled everywhere! It is beautiful, and I need to bring that blush back out and use it again! I'm sure it looks beautiful on you!

  7. @Casey, Avon does have a good eyeliner! Thank you for entering! :)

  8. MY favorite products I wear most/almost everyday would be a simple department store foundation, Revelon Photoready in 004 Nude, Covergirl Fresh Complexion Pressed Power in 620 Creamy Natural, and then the Covergirl TRUblend Minerals Loose Power in 405 Translucent/Fair, and lastly my MAC Plush Mascara in black! (: I wear for sure everyday, my eyeshadows change and I wear eyeliner depending on if I feel like putting it on (: lol

  9. Jennifer Martin won! :) Thanks, Casey, for entering!
