Chantecaille Giveaway!

As promised, I have finally got around to sorting this giveaway. Originally it was to celebrate reaching 100 followers, as I'm now on 120 you can see how long it has taken me! There are two different giveaways with different prizes, the first is only for current followers to thank them for supporting my blog in its early stages, but the second (for the Chantecaille palette) is open to everyone.

Chantecaille Sea Turtles Palette - £73 from Space NK

1. The first giveaway is only open to those 120 people currently following my blog. You don't have to do anything at all, you are all already entered. This is to thank you all for your support. The prize is a By Terry Rouge Terrybly Lipstick in the colour of your choice (you can see the colours available on and there are great swatches on and

I tried one of these in March, the shade Cherry Cherry, and it is now my holy grail pink lipstick (there will be a post on it soon). It is an amazing colour and feels so lightweight on so I thought it would make a great prize. The winner will be announced in 2 weeks time, on Sunday 24th April. I will contact the winner and ask for your preferred shade and then order it from Space NK. Please note this is only open to current followers and all 120 of you are automatically entered. Good luck!

2. The second giveaway is open to everyone, new and old followers alike, and the prize is your choice of either the Chantecaille Sea Turtles Palette or the Tiger in the Wild Palette. Each features 3 eye colours (one can be used as a liner) and a cheek colour. To be in with a chance of winning you must be a follower of this blog with GFC and leave a comment stating which palette you would prefer and telling me your favourite makeup brand(s). It is that simple.

Now onto the rules:
  • The giveaway closes at 11pm on Saturday 23rd April 2011 and the winner will be announced on Sunday 24th April. Any entries after this time won't be counted.
  • The winner will be picked by a random number generator.
  • To enter you must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post stating your palette preference and your favourite makeup brand.
  • There is only one entry per person, I will be checking so please don't try to enter more than once.
  • Please bear in mind that if you state a preference for the Tiger in the Wild palette, I have to order it from America and this could take a couple of weeks to arrive.
  • This giveaway is open to everyone, both UK and international followers.
  • If I don't hear back from the winner after 7 days another will be chosen via a random number generator.
  • My decision is final.
  • If for some reason either Chantecaille Palette is unavailable (this is highly unlikely), I will liaise with the winner and purchase their choice of Chantecaille products to the same value as the palette.
I think that is everything! I deliberated for a long while whether to use a Chantecaille palette as a prize as I wasn't blown away by the Sea Turtle Palette when I bought it myself. However, I think I'm in the minority and my aim with giveaways is to go for something that is a luxury item, not a necessity, the kind of thing you would love as an unexpected gift but would probably not go out and buy yourself. I know quite a few followers already have the Sea Turtles which is why I included the option of the Tiger in the Wild palette, plus it also means you can choose the one that you think is best suited to your colouring.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments and good luck wishes for my upcoming law exams. My revision is now well and truly underway and I am battling with leases, wills, trusts, sexual offences, you name it I seem to need to know it! That is why I have been absent from twitter and there have been a lack of posts recently. It was a real boost when I saw all the lovely comments, just what I needed when studying was beginning to get me down. Fingers crossed I pass, then it will be onto the next set of exams and training contract applications!


  1. Two seriously amazing giveaways, very generous!! That lipstick shade is seriously wow, By Terry products are gorgeous and I've heard such good things about their lipsticks.

    Please enter me in the second giveaway (assuming I already qualify for the first as am in the first 120 followers!) :) My favourite brand is Laura Mercier, I'm yet to try a product that I haven't been incredibly impressed with! And my preference is the sea turtles palette, it's so pretty xx

  2. Thank you so much for those amazing giveaways! Both prizes are great!

    I´m also in the first 120 followers and would like to be entered in the second giveaway, too :)

    My favourite make up brand is Chanel! And I would prefer the Tiger in the Wild palette.

  3. Oh, wow, what amazing prizes! I'm addicted to pink lipsticks so I can't wait for your post on the By Terry one!

    My favourite brand is Urban Decay. I'm pretty much in love with every single one of their products and if I ever go back home I will cry because they're not sold there!

    My prefernece is the Sea Turtle palette, it looks gorgeous!

  4. Wow, what a generous giveaway - I am an existing follower, and would actually prefer the Tiger in the wild palette for the second giveaway :) (though would be very happy with either tbh!) My fave brand (today anyway) is Urban Decay. Just love their 24/7 liners and shadow pencils!

  5. oh my gosh these are amazingly generous giveaways, thank you!

    i'd love to enter the second giveaway (and assume i am entered in the first) please :) my favourite brands are chanel, nars (for the cheek & eye products alone), dior, and i'm starting to really love guerlain from what i've tried! my preference would be for the sea turtle palette but i would love either to be honest, i've not tried any chantecaille products yet & they both look gorgeous.

    good luck with your exams, i'm a fellow law student & i know how torturous trusts and property can be! xx

  6. wow these prizes are amazing!

    i'm a current follower

    i think i like the tiger palette best but both look gorgeous!

    my favourite makeup ranges are drugs store ones like collection 2000, 17, barry m because i'm don'thave the money to try high end brands at the moment

  7. Wow, Im a new follower (121) and your giveaway is amazing.

    My favourite brand is Maxfactor, yup a high street brand. I own a few higher end products which I love, but I cant afford to be in love with a high end brand so Maxfactor for me, with their foundations and mascaras and recently discovered lip tints. <3

    If I was so lucky as to win I don't mind which palette would become mine as I find them both gorgeous.

    Thank you for the chance to (maybe) win.

  8. Wow! Jennifer, your giveaways are just amazing. I would love a Terrybly lipsticks having been intrigued by all the posts. In terms of the Chantecaille, I think you probably know I'd love to get my hands on the Tigers. My favourite makeup brand is probably Rouge Bunny Rouge. The disappointments are so rare for me.

    Congratulations on the followers, all well deserved. Best of luck with the exams too. You know we're all rooting for you.

  9. Hi, I would like to participate in the second giveaway too, as I've been following your blog for some time now and I like it very much.
    I would like to win Tiger in the Wild palette, and it's not easy to decide on my favorite makeup brand, but let's say it might be Chanel lately.
    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

  10. Am a new follower (J) but thanks for having such an incredible giveaway.

    My favourite makeup brand (right now) is a toss up between Chanel & Chantecaille.

    Would lovelovelove the Tigers in the Wild Palette.

  11. Hi, I'm a new follower, congratulations on a great blog and thanks for such an amazing giveaway!

    My favorite make up line is hard to say, I have a few things from several different brands. Probably Chantecaille, Burberry and Bobbi Brown.

    I have the Tigers palette and LOVE it! So for the contest I would love to win the Turtle palette. Thanks!

  12. what amazing giveaways! I would love the turtles palette. My favorite brand would, hands down, be chantecaille.

  13. Hello! I am an existing follower - my favourite brand is Chanel and if I won, I would love the Tiger in the Wild palette! thank you for the awesome giveaway :)

  14. Such a generous giveaway!

    My favorite makeup brand would have to be NARS, with my new found love Le Metier de Beaute a close second.

    I've never tried Chantecaille before so I would to try the Sea Turtle palette first!

  15. I'm a current follower but would also like to enter the 2nd giveaway! My preference is the sea turtle palette.

    My favourite make-up brand might be NARS.. or Dior!

    Good luck with exams! I've been through a law degree as well and am not looking forward to submitting another round of training contract applications.. This will be my third year applying!! Competition is so tough these days... xxx

  16. Wow! Please can I be entered into the 2nd giveaway? I've had you in my bookmarks for ages so didn't bother using GFC but I have now!

    My favourite make up brand is NARS (or possibly Bobbi Brown) (but probably still NARS...)

    I would love to try the Tigers!

  17. What an amazing prize Jennifer! So generous. Really hope the exams go well for you too chick. I remember what a tough time that was.

    I guess my favourite make up brand would be Urban Decay. I love their palettes.

    I'm not sure I can decide on which Chantecaille palette I'd pick. They are both so incredibly beautiful. Ummm...ahhhhh... I'd choose Tigers! Phew that was difficult. X

  18. Wow, this is a great giveaway! Well done on the 120 followers :)

    My fave brand is Urban Decay, or Sleek Makeup. I will go with Sleek because Urban Decay is popping up lots, and Sleek is drugstore, so very well priced. Their palettes are amazing!

    I would choose the sea turtle palette if I was fortunate enough to win.

    Thanks for the opportunity! xx

  19. Wow, thats a mahoosive prize, incredibly generous!

    I think of the two I would prefer the Turtles palette if I was lucky enough to win!

    My favourite make up range, it varies but I guess if I could only every buy one range of make up for as long as I live and not deviate I'd have to go with Chanel, its just so luxe!

  20. First, all the best with your study. I'm glad that it's all over for me for now...

    I'd like to enter for the Tiger Palette giveaway.

    I had to choose between Chanel Regard Perle & Chantecaille Sea Turtle, I chose Chanel. But I don't think I can live with just one makeup brand. So for me, it'd be Chanel, Le Metier de Beauté and Guerlain.

    Thank you! And hopes your exams are over soon so you could enjoy the lovely British summer :)

  21. Goodness Jennifer what a fab giveaway. I think that my favourite brand has to be Becca seeing as I have so much of it, even eyeshadows, well one! I would choose the Tigers I think, not sure what I would do with it, probably look at it lovingly and stroke it every now and again with the appropriate brush :-) Jan xx

  22. enter me please :-)
    my fav brand is mac. i would choose the Sea Turtles Palette because the colours are gorgeous!

  23. OMG What a giveaway woman!! I would looooove the turtle palette, it's so cute! My favourite brand of the moment is Urban Decay xxx

  24. thanks for this giveaway.

    my favorite brand would be Rimmel i guess. or maybe maybelline :) actually i got few favorites and don't have that favorite of the favorites :)

    and i would love to win sea turtle palette

  25. From one 'Jennifer' to another "hi"! I'm already a current follower and have been a fan of your blog for quite some time. I already own the turtle palette, so I would prefer the Tigers palette. My favorite brand is easily Le Metier De Beaute, I've yet to be letdown from their products and I think they have superb customer service to go along with it. Good luck with your exams and thank you for your generosity!

  26. These are such generous giveaway gifts! I am a big fan of your blog and have been following for a month or so. My favourite brand would be Rouge Bunny Rouge if I could afford to buy it regularly. I would love to enter for the Tiger pallette. Thank you, and congratulations on your 120 followers! xxx

  27. Crikey...this is one heckers of an amazing giveaway!! I think my favourite brand at the moment is Yaby! I change my mind so often but I'm currently lovin Yaby's teeny tiny little eyeshadows...because they're cheaper and smaller it means I can buy lots more of them! :) As much as I do love those little sea turtles I think the tiger palette would be the one for me!

    Good luck with your exams! They can be so stressful so fingers and toes crossed!

  28. I am now a follower and would love the turtle palette. My current favorite make up brand is clinique simply because I have super sensitive skin and no matter what make up I buy from them it never causes a rash or irritation.


  29. Oh wow, I am glad I found this blog, and not just because of this awesome giveaway! I have a hard time finding the right beauty blogs and yours really appeals to me!

    My favourite makeup brand is currently Nars, though I am going to be trying some tarte products because I like the company's cruelty-free policy and that their products have products that are more natural.

    Both palettes are stunning but I have to go with the tigers because the tiger is a very special animal to me. it would probably be my patronus. :)

  30. this is such a great giveaway!!O_O

  31. Hello,
    I hope your exams go well, my main worry with exams was my stomach rumbling, so guess that was why I never did that well, lack of focus! ;)
    Such a generous giveaway I think you will be inundated with entries!
    My overall favourite makeup brand has to be RBR.
    I can't forget about the green shadow and peachy blush so my pick would be the Sea Turtle palette x

  32. i could've sworn i commented on this yesterday! :(

    thank you for the amazing giveaways, it's so generous! i'm an existing follower & if lucky enough i would love the sea turtles palette (although either would be amazing, as i've never tried chantecaille & would love to!). my favourite brands are nars (for eyeshadows & cheek products alone - best blushes hands down!), dior, and chanel, but i'm starting to develop a(n expensive!) guerlain habit which could see it becoming my favourite brand :)

    good luck with your exams, i'm a law student too so i know how draining property & trusts can be - best of luck! x

  33. Hello Lovely

    That is a toughie on which brand is my favorite.... right now I'm totally loving Chanel and Tarte (those new powder blushes are TDF) but deep down my heart belongs to RBR. I wish I had it ALL! lol

    I think I would fancy the Turtle but wonder if I may get on better with the Tiger??? Why don't you choose *winks* xoxox jeanie

  34. Hey I missed your blog during your hiatus! I just did the worst set of tax exams ever so good luck with your exams!!!

    My favourite make up brand is guerlain (so expensive though!!!)

    I would LOVE the turtles palette! Thanks!

  35. Favourite brands - Revlon for "drugstore" (can't think of the UK equivalent for that word at the moment, would it be pharmacy? It's bad of me because I am British!) and Chanel, Dior and MAC for higher end stuff. I also love Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier. God I just love make-up in general, although you wouldn't know it from my cack-handed application!

    I would love the sea turtle palette! The lipstick looked gorgeous when you showed it, am having a pink lipstick moment!
    Gordita x

  36. This is an utterly stunning giveaway, thank you so much for the opportunity to enter. I'd pick the Sea Turtles - addicted to green as I am.

    My fave brand is Illamasqua for it's encouragement of people to be outrageous and individual with their makeup.

    Thanks again. x
