I wouldn't say I enter a lot of contests, but when one comes up on a website or FaceBook page for a brand that I like, I do. I rarely win, but lady luck was blowing kisses at my mailbox this week because I didn't just get one, I got 2 contest goodies in the mail this week.
The first thing I got a few days ago was this Essie nail polish in the color "Beauty Reporter" which is a wine like red color. According to the note included I won this from a contest I entered on Allure's website in October. Allure seems like they are always running great contests on health and beauty items and for awhile (around October apparently) I was entering a lot of them. Lately I slowed down because I got a pissy "I'm never going to won these silly contests" attitude. Guess they proved me wrong and in a in a delightful way at that. I' going to be clicking the enter button on Allure a lot more now! (And making sure to blog it when they run good contests!) Looks like they have a lot of good ones coming up in early January.
Today in the mail I got a little goodie pack that I won on CoverGirls FaceBook page. I think I "liked" the page in the first place to get a coupon. (Yea I'm a crazy couponer) Guess I got away with a lot more then the $2 off coupon I was after initially. The pack they sent me today had a full size Covergirl Smoky Shadow Blast in Bronze Fire, a sample natureluxe foundation in Aspen and Maple, and another coupon!
So the moral of this blog post is...Enter those contests! If I can get lucky then anyone can.
