  32. First I want to say Happy Anniversary! I am always up for being a part of any celebration and I wish you continued success in the next year! And, what a fantastic giveaway too! I love to try new beauty products and enjoy seeing how well they work for me. I am really excited about the LUSH Celebrate Wrapped Gift Set because I have been wanting to try LUSH products for the longest time! There is nothing more relaxing and pampering than using some aromatic and luxurious products on yourself in the bath and shower to indulge yourself with. If you are having a stressful day, or need a little confidence booster, just taking a few minutes with some alone “me” time and giving yourself a luxurious bath or shower with some uplifting wonderful products can really help to make you feel rejuvenated and ready to face the world again! I would love to try these amazing products from LUSH to give myself that at home “spa” like feeling and make my days special! I also would love to try the Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara. I have seen the commercials for this product and read some reviews and it appears to really take your lashes to a level that is phenomenal! I always wear mascara to enhance my lashes and make my eyes “pop” and welcome the chance to add some stiletto’s to my lashes, very cool! Thanks so much for letting me join in on your Anniversary celebration!

  33. What two items in the giveaway are you looking forward to most and why?
    1) Covergirl Lashblast mascara because I need a new mascara and I heard great reviews on this one!
    2) Luzier Skin Care Package because I’m always looking for a good skin care product!

  45. I need: # Ice Blue Soap
    # Happy Hippy Shower Gel because I LOVE BATHS!!

  46. I’m looking forward to the Luzier Dry skincare set and the Maybelline Lash Stiletto. I am a loyal Maybelline mascara girl after Full N Soft, and I could really use a skincare line that doesn’t cause me to break out!

  47. I am looking forward to the Barry M nail polish in shocking pink because I have been meaning to get such a bright color to use for the summer season!

    Also, I’m looking forward to the LUSH set because I just bought one item from them for the first time (the Lemony Flutter), and I LOVE it, so I am very much so looking forward to trying out more of their products.

    thanks for the giveaway <3

  54. Wonderful Giveaway! I would love to win the Lush Celebrate Wrapped Gift-so many lovely bath products to try. Also I would like to try Maybelline Lash Stilletto Mascara-I already use Covergirl LashBlast and love it so it would be nice to compare the two.

  55. The Lush gift (looooove Lush!) and the Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara, with the Covergirl mascara running a close 3rd.

  56. Thanks so much for this giveaway. There’s tons of cool things up for grabs but I mostly look forward to the LUSH products because they always have the coolest but also priciest bath things to relax with. I also love the Max Factor lipsticks because I hear such good things about them on makeup sites but unfortunately in the part of Canada where I live we don’t have any stores that sell Max Factor cosmetics so this would be a great chance to play around with them.

  57. WOW, its great 1 year!! Cool stuff at the giveaway!! Mabelline in black? I use that! Thanks for the great idea!

  58. I’m most looking forward to the two mascaras because I’m hunting for the perfect mascara for short, sparse lashes. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

  59. I’m looking forward to the Luxe Cover Girl Mascara! I’ve tried this one, and it Rocks!!
    Also looking forward to the LUSH wrapped gift pack, because I’ve heard their products are earth friendly, and also have great fragrance!

    Phyrra´s last blog post… Finger Paints Sunburst Summer Collection

  116. The stiletto mascara and the powder hair product are the two items I’d be most excited to try. The mascara- because I’ve used the same one for years and the ads make it look like it’s actually different (though all the models appear to have on false eyelashes, too- which certainly enhances the effect) and the hair product – because I’m getting old and starting to look it, and some fun product in my hair might give me just the little boost I need. Thanks. And Happy Anniversary!

  117. The Lush Celebrate Set and Max Factor (heard these were great!) Thanks so much!
