Win OPI Silver Shatter

After I showed you guys the OPI Silver Shatter I picked up yesterday at Ulta, a bunch of you freaked out because you can’t find it where you are. So! I went back to Ulta and picked up 2 more bottles of OPI Silver Shatter to give away to 2 lucky readers. 
Unfortunately, sending nail polish overseas is iffy/risky, so I am limiting this to USA readers only. Sorry guys & gals! 
To enter…
Comment below with an idea you have about what polish to wear with your OPI Silver Shatter, and let me know how you keep up on The Gloss Menagerie (whether it be facebook, twitter, RSS, etc.). When you’re commenting, you don’t need to put your email address in the body of your comment, but you do need to put it in the comment “form” – since I’m an admin I can see it even though it’s private. :) That way I can reach you to tell you you’ve won!
Rules –
You must be in the USA.
You must follow the blog somehow (see above). I will check!
After the contest closes I will draw 2 readers randomly.
Once I notify the winners, they’ll have 24 hours to reply and claim their prize. 
Once the winners have claimed their prizes I’ll update the post w/ the winners.
You have until 5:00 pm PST July 15th to enter. 

SkinCareRX Beautiful Mom Giveaway

With Mother’s Day coming up, wouldn’t you love to give her something totally mind-blowing? I know I would…there is an ongoing joke in my family that my step-dad constantly outshines my mothers’ day gifts to my mom. I threw up my hands and gave up on trying after he got her a car a couple years ago. No, really. A friggin car. How do I compete with that? lol… 
Well, a $250 SkinCareRx (that means Apothica and SkinBotanica too!) gift card would be a pretty good start, right? SkinCareRx carries Clarisonic, M.D. Forte, Obagi, and tons of other brands that your mom can pamper herself with. And if she wants a little something pretty too, she can pick something out from Apothica‘s huge selection of cosmetics (she might need your help choosing with so many options – there’s Too Faced, Hourglass, Smashbox, and tons more…).
In order to win, just visit the Beautiful Mom contest on SkinCareRx and leave a comment with why your mom deserves to win. You only have until May 5th to enter, and the winner will be announced on May 6th.
Good luck!

Hey all, just wanted to drop in and tell you about the Temptation is Beautiful contest from KAO Brands. I found out about it and entered because the grand prize is a trip to vegas for you and 3 friends for 3 days and 2 nights!! I know I could really use a vacation, couldn’t you? :)

But to sweeten the pot even more they’ll throw in a check for $1,500 spending money! Um, hello!

Even if you don’t win a fabulous Vegas getaway, they’re giving away gift baskets every day for 60 days. The gift baskets include products from the KAO Brands: Jergens, Curel, Ban, Biore, and John Frieda.

Once you register on the website for the Temptation is Beautiful contest, you can enter once a day. You can also get bonus entries in the contest by taking their cute Temptation Quiz and sharing your results with friends on your social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. :) Here’s what I got for my “Temptress Temperature”. Kinda cheesy but really cute, I thought! Reminds me of those quizzes my friends and I used to take with each other in Teen magazine. So, a bit of nostalgia, no?

Gloss Menagerie 2009 Holiday Lookbook

As Thanksgiving (and Black Friday!!!) are fast approaching, I think we can safely say it is officially “The Holidays”. Therefore, I need something from all of you! ;)

Send me your favorite holiday party makeup looks! That means xmas, hanukkah, new year’s, etc. On you, or your friends, whatever! Just please make sure you have permission to send a photo if it’s not of your mug.

Please include:

– big, CLEAR photos
– a breakdown of what was used to achieve the look
– why you like it!
– if you have a blog, include the URL so I can show you some link love when your look is featured

Bonus: If anyone wants to do a video tutorial of a holiday party look to be featured on the blog, that would be great too. It would have to be one created specifically for The Gloss Menagerie though, and mention Gloss Menagerie in the video.

DEADLINE: Dec 31st

I will randomly select a few people who participate and submit looks or videos to receive free goodies as a thank-you.

Win a Trip to NYC with mark. Cosmetics!

Okie dokie, sorry this is last minute but I have been slacking on keeping up with what’s going on at mark. lately. The Super Fruits, Super Foods, Super You! sweepstakes is your chance to enter to win a trip to NYC for you and a friend. It’s a quick trip, just 2 days/1 night, but I could use a quick jaunt to some exciting destination right now, couldn’t you? While you’re there, you’ll get to meet with mark. nutritionist Adria, who will give you a personal nutrition consultation. I’m pretty sure that also means you’ll get to see mark. headquarters, which is a very cool place indeed. I haven’t been there, but I have seen pictures of when my buddy Manda got to go visit. :)
No purchase necessary to enter, just fill out this form and you’re good to go. Entries close soon, and the winner will be announced 10/29, so hurry! For more entry rules see the entry form.
