£100 beauty giveaway

Because I’m super generous and like to put a smile on some of you lovely people’s faces, I made a pledge. I promised that once I got over 700 facebook fans that I would launch a £100 beauty goodie bag giveaway so you beautiful ladies (and gents if you so wish) could enjoy some fab stuff too. So here we go and here it is. And because I got super excited it’s not worth £100, but £139 instead. Now, do a little dance and read on for details of what it includes…

(I’m not on an ego trip, promise, I’m just intrigued!) The winner will not be chosen on your answer, but will be chosen at random. I’d just like to know what you think of LBQ and how you think I could improve it. Easy, peasy. Off you go.

T&Cs – Competition will close on Friday 15th October at midnight. Only one entry per person. Open to UK residents only (sorry, but this would cost a fortune to post internationally!) Winner will be picked at random. You must respond with your postal address within 24hrs or another winner will be chosen. That is all.

    I've been reading your blog for about 6 months (and eventually figured how to add it to my Google Reader, yay me) and I really like the variety of products offered, the reviews, the swatches and the fact that it comes across as written by someone who genuinely cares. I love the fact you have a range of products, at different price ranges, and the fact you pay equal attention to all. It's great that you focus on the product rather than the price/brand. And you're also really entertaining:)

    Its easy to follow as you link up with both facebook and twitter. You look at a wide range of things not just Premium and give frank opinions which is good. To many blogs butter every single product up which isn't honest advice.@beckslayer

I love your blog because i think it great that you dont just use/blog about the high end brands such as clinique or chanel, but you also blog about the ones they us everyday skint folk can afford like the new fake bake range….dont get me wrong i like to treat myself every now and then to some thing from dior or clinque but most of my make up is rimmel lol xx

    Hi there! I love your blog beacuse I'm addicted to make-up and beauty products – and you are too!! You cover new products and give a really honest opinion, which stops me wasting money on stuff that doesn't work. I love the layout, the images and your writing style. Better than most beauty magazines. Keep up the good work.

    i love your blog because its very informative and it seems that u're honest about everything you write about. You also review "cheap" products as well as the high end products which is reallyy useful as i cant go out to get everything and a bargain is always thumbs up. groovybabe_46@hotmail.com

    I love reading blogs and reviews online for make up and beauty products but none are as easily read, funny, informative and truthful as yours. I adore make up and beauty products and LOVE how you try out low budget items too. I will definitely be sticking with LBQ!x

    Make up and skin care products are the type of things that you like to have recommended to your before you buy them. They end to be quite expensive and it's always re assuring to hear from a REAL person what they thought of it. Sure we all have different preferences and budgets etc but your blog always speaks the truth. You're not biased to a particular product and have a great range of products covering all budgets and purposes! You also make me giggle from time to time with your twitter updates! ;)www.aowen87.blogspot.com

    I've been reading your blog for a few months now, but only just set up a blogger account. I really like this blog as you blog about beauty products which are all different price ranges. I hate blogs when they just review high end beauty products, as a student I'd never be able to afford a £30.00 foundation. So I like the fact I can log on and look at some products, I can also go out and buy myself 🙂 xxxcoza26@hotmail.com

You are also very witty in your tweets and I find it highly entertaining.I am so busy I don't have time to go out and try out millions of products. Yoru blog enables me to sit at my desk and make my work day more enjoyable.

    I love your honest reviews and the fact that you aren't snobby about cheaper brands.I have been toying with the idea of buying some ELF products for some time. After reading your reviews I went ahead and ordered a few different shades of nail polish and an eye shadow/liner pen. They are all fab! No looking back now!Keep up the good work.
