BG Carnival Temptress

This is my first time participating in a Blog Carnival, so I'm excited. And, for once, it's not all about your kids, either! This time, I'm giving away a cute little makeup palette from Too Faced which I had every intention of using but, well, I just don't get out very much these days. And yet I still buy way too much makeup.



I love its retro pulp paperback styling and compact size– a little bigger than a business card but smaller than a deck of cards. Tiny enough to slip into your diaper bag, for sure, and even a shirt pocket if necessary, but it features two eye shadows, two lip glosses and blush in a "passionate plum palette." I think it would suit most skin tones.

To enter and win this Too Faced Quickie Chronicle in Temptress (a $15 value!), please comment on this post with your favorite makeup story! Entries will be accepted through February 3rd and I'll pick the winner using Random.org. I will ship anywhere for the sake of Bloggy fun, so please enter wherever you may live.

Make sure you leave an email address in your comment or that you have one accessible on your blog so you can be contacted if you win! If I can't find your email, I will have to pick a new winner. Only one entry/comment per person, please.


***Don't forget my other current giveaways!
More contests coming soon, please visit again!***

  1. I'm just now getting into make up: not because my mom wouldn't let me wear any growing up, but because I was always worried that my brothers would make fun of me...so I would always lie and say that my mom wouldn't let me wear any in high school.

  2. Ooo, I LOVE Too Faced! Awesome giveaway! I'm not sure I have a favorite story, so how about my least favorite: when I was on vacation in Mexico, I dropped my make up bag hard enough to break three of the compacts & all of my eyeshadow crumbled in their containers. Needless to say, I found a big mess in my make up bag when I picked it up. Does that count? haha :)

  3. Great giveaway - I actually just started wearing makeup on a reg basis in the past few years - just turned 40 and so now I really need it LOL.

    It really is difficult to find just the right stuff for your skin type without spending a fortune too.

    My current fav is Ultra smooth foundation by The Body Shop - even covers my rosesca.

  4. I'm so pleased to be your very first entry in your very first Blog Carnival. Pick me pick me pick me. The first time I ever wore makeup in public was when I was about 12 years old. My parents had to go out, so my sister and I were to walk to a neighbor's home for dinner and stay there until they picked us up. I thought it would be safe to wear makeup since my mother wouldn't be there and proceeded to put on some of her blue, yes blue,eyeshadow. My younger sister told me I was going to get in trouble, but too bad. Anyway, long story short--we got to the neighbor's house. After about 5 minutes, the wife said to me "honey, what did you do to your eye? Is that a bruise? Oh my both of your eyes are bruised. Let me get some ice." She made me lay on the couch with an ice pack on my head. I was extremely embarrassed. Even my sister showed me no mercy. Anyway, I have NEVER worn blue eye shadow again.

  5. A favorite makeup story, that is a hard one. But I am going to say when my two year old baby girl got into every product I own. Boy, did she look good!

  6. A couple of years ago I took the plunge and went to the local MAC counter for a consult. I left with a ton of goodies, all excited to try my hand with my new make-up, and a couple nights later, went out with some girlfriends. They all noticed my make-up immediately and I beamed in pride until one kind-hearted friend pulled me aside and gently told me that it was just too dark and I may want to work on blending and using a lighter touch.

    I was mortified, but haven't made the same mistake since!

  9. Love the giveaway!

    My best makeup story is coming home, and finding DD (age3) putting on makeup in the bathroom. (Dad didn't realize that no noise is a clue that something bad is happening) Anyway, I say her, covered in garish eyeshadow, heavy blush, and bright red lipstick, and she asken me "Mama am I beautiful?" I just melted....and made sure my makeup was locked up after that...but I did buy her some inexpensive powder , lipgloss, and nude colored blush and eyeshadow for play... (She has to scrub before we go out)

  10. When I was a little girl, I got into my mother's body powder and painted my face white and then proceeded to get out her nail polish and paint my whole feet.

    ReplyDelete
  11. My fav story is like many of the others...when their child got into their makeup. Well, I have a boy and he didn't get into makeup, but he got into body butter. It was EVERYWHERE!!!! And do you know how hard that stuff is to get off?

    ReplyDelete
  12. My best makeup story was when my 2 yr old dumped my b.e. eyeliner and husband had to buy me a new one and in the process I got the new platinum kit! I had to post about it on my blog. She still loves to get into my makeup.

    ReplyDelete
  13. when I turned 16 my father said I could finally use makeup... all my friends had been using it since they were like 12! lol so HE decided for my birthday that year he would buy me some and instead of consulting someone as to what would go with my coloring... he simply went and bought what colors he thought were "pretty"! I ended up with light blue and green eyeshadows, dark purple lipstick and almost red blush to go with my olive skin and very dark read hair! I eventually ended up using it for an art project in college!

  20. When I was 9-ish, my mother, sister and I would do makeovers on each other. One time I gave my mother little eyeliner curlicues next to her eyes and she never let me do her make-up again without giving me a hard time about it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. wow this is a great selection of colors! fingers crossed!!

  22. A few of my fav girlfriend throw an annual Girlie Gala - crazy themes, lots of goodies, yummy drinks and silly games. Basically a grown-up slumber party. A couple years ago one of the games was a blindfolded make-over. I was one of the people being 'made' so I wasn't blindfolded. Watching 15 hooded girls applying make-up to friends was one of the funniest things I've seen - lots of giggles and wow did we look hot after that game.

  23. When we were younger, my sister and I were given makeup in these plastic 4x7 trays that was probably tinkerbell or bonne bell or something like that! We made ourselves up all the time and it was so much fun to wear blue to our eyebrows and pink to our ears. :)

    Great Giveaway!

  30. My older sister is artsy fartsy which means my little sister and myself would always end up being her model for whatever she was into at that point in her life. For a while she was really into make-up and liked to play the make-up artist. We hated having her put make-up on us because when she'd put eyeshadow on us it felt like she was licking her finger and putting it on our eye lid - cold and wet. Still to this day we have no idea what she was doing. Maybe she really was doing that!

  33. I used to work for Clinique as a makeup artist and my favorite time is when I got to do makeup for a drag queen that had some sort of "show" that night :) needless to say, i got to use more color than usual!

  34. I was an everyday make-up wearer from the time I was 13 (I used it before, but Mom wouldn't let me leave the house with it on my face until then) until I was 22. What happened? I got pregnant and figured out I could sleep an extra 15 minutes every day if I didn't fuss with my face. When I was 27 and had 2 kids under my belt I turned to my husband and said "Does it bother you I don't do my hair and make-up anymore?" He looked at me for a minute and said "I am pretty sure there is no safe way to answer that question." I am now an everyday make-up wearer again!!!! :) I love that man!!!!!

  35. What a great giveaway. Thanks for offering it. My best makeup story is going to a makeup counter and getting a real makeover from my mom for my 15th birthday. I felt like a princess.

  36. I received this fabulous sample of face lotion in the mail and completely fell in love with it. It made my skin feel smooth and silky. When I took a closer look at the sample, I discovered that it was hair cream! Hey - at least it worked.

  37. I have a VERY romantic Hubby, he's always leaving me little notes here and there. I just wish he wouldn't use my cover-up stick, lipliner and lipsticks to write them on the bathroom mirror (a dry bar of soap works just as well and costs FAR less)....this gorgeous palette may just throw him off a little LOL ;)
    Thank you for your thoughtfulness

  38. Wow! A makeup story. What a hard request. LOL it was probably when I was a little girl and used to paint my dog's toenails. Nail polish remover does not work on porous nails. Poor thing had red toenails for a looooong time. =)

  42. When I had my hair done for prom my mom decided to splurge and get my makeup done at the same time. The girl doing my makeup didn't seem like she wanted to and when I left I looked like a clown. My mom kept saying how great it looked and I didn't want to hurt her feelings so I actually went to my prom with my clown face on.

    In any case, I would love to be entered into your awesome giveaway! Thanks!

  43. I used to work at an attorneys office and obviously one morning I got into too big of a hurry...I put mascara on my bottom lashes but not the top. Another paralegal pointed that out....

    ReplyDelete
  44. I remember the first time I ever got my makeup done professionally. I came out looking like a well really a tramp. I went home, washed it off, and did it myself from then on. For some reason people always think I need dark black mascara and eye liner. I disagree!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh I wish I had a funny (or any good) makeup story to share but I don't. Hopefully you'll still enter me in the giveaway!

  46. My step daughter decided she wanted to run for a Queen's Competition which meant learning how to wear make up, model, learn new riding patterns with her horse, and all kinds of good stuff.

    One night her Dad and I decided to go out dancing and she begged and pleaded to be allowed to do my eye makeup. I sat on a stool in our bathroom and let her make all the final touches.

    She comes out of the bathroom with me and announces to her Dad doesn't she look lovely!

    It was really very sweet, : )

  47. a funny makeup story? well, my stepson wanted his toes painted like mine when he was about 5. so, of course, i did. his dad was less than thrilled!

  48. When I was a teenager, I had a cat. Well, one day, just before prom, the before mentioned cat decided it would be fun to a) eat my lipstick, and b) proceed to chew on my $300 prom dress. In that order.

  51. My favorite makeup story... hmm. Well, it's not a "favorite" but it certainly is the most entertaining: DS 23 mo gets into EVERYTHING nowadays, including my makeup. I've caught him several times, mutilating my lipsticks by trying to apply them like chapstick (only forcibly). I should take photos.

    Thanks for the chance to win this fun makeup set. :-)

  54. When I was 15 I visited my older sister..she though it would be fun to put make-up on me since I never wore any before. Well when she finished I felt like I looked like a Wh*re. She made me go out in public and I felt like everybody was staring at me,LOL. NOw I wear make-up all the time but I will never forget my 1st time!!!

  58. My favorite make up story happened recently. My husband saw a picture from junior high when I first started wearing make up. He said, "I did not know you were goth."
    And I said, "I did not know I was either". Looks like I had a little trouble early on!!

    I would love this.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I remember in the 80's I used to line the inside of my lower eyelids and on the outside (top and bottom) of my eyes with bright blue eyeliner pencil! I saw it in a magazine that said Princess Diana did her eyes like that. I actually liked that look, too! Obviously, I don't do it now! LOL! Thanks so much for doing this!

  68. My makeup story is from my teenage years. I was fifteen and still wasn't allowed to wear makeup. I was WAY outside the cool kid zone at that point. So one night, my Mom decided to talk to my Dad about it. The conversation went something like this:

    "I think we should let Brekke start wearing makeup."

    "But...her boobs are big."

    *insert my mother reportedly almost laughing herself out of the car*

    "What does THAT have to do with makeup?"

    The response was something about how boys already had something to look at why add to it. In the end, I got to wear makeup. But...that story will likely haunt me forever. :)

  72. My favorite make-up story? I was acting in a friend's short film projectwhen the make-up volunteer didn't show. So I did all the guy's fight scene make-up using eyeshadow,mascara,concealer, lipstick, and powder--whatever I'd happened to bring that day for myself. And it didn't look half-bad!

    I started getting into makeup at a very young age & my mother has pictures of me, having snuck into her makeup case while she was napping - when I was about 3.

    My sons have both done the same to me as revenge. Man that Cover Girl all day lipstick is hard to get off of little ones. *lol*

  75. I rarely wear makeup... no time! I love it though. My bff did my makeup for my wedding and she had such a professional setup that everyone thought she was a professional makeup artist. My sis in law asked her how much she charged! LOL

  76. i would love to win this palette, it would be fabulous on my cocoa skin. my makeup story is a HUGE faux pas---back in high school i let my bff convince me to use my lipstick as eyeshadow also so that it could ALL MATCH! oh, thank goodness my makeup skills have improved drastically...

  79. Great giveaway!! Ok, this is totally embarrassing but I went to this place to have my eyebrows waxed that I had never been to before. It felt like the lady was putting alot of wax on but I trusted that she knew what she was doing...boy was I wrong! When she was finished and she handed me the mirror she had taken off over half of each of my eyebrows!!!! I didn't even look like the same person, I was absolutely devastated and spent the next few weeks trying to draw on eyebrows until they grew back!

  88. Favorite makeup story????? Oh I guess it would be when I was in fifth or sixth grade and would sneak wearing eye shadow. The eye shadow I loved to try was the Mary Kay stuff you had to wet. Green and blue were my faves. I am sure I looked hideous!!! I think I am a bit better without having to wet my makeup first.

    My makeup story is when I was around 6 or 7 and came across a bag of my mom's makeup. Well, unfortunately my mom was taking a nap that afternoon and so I went to town with the makeup and she awoke to find a harlot for a daughter. Either that or a poorly made up clown. She laughed so much she nearly peed her pants!

  97. To be honest, I'm just starting to want to wear make up... and I have no clue how! I'm going to turn 36 next month and I've only ever worn make up twice. I was a tomboy growing up and was just never interested.

  98. When my little sister was about 2, she got into my mom's (bright red) lipstick. When we found her, we were all shocked because she looked like she had been bleeding copiously from the mouth, all over her hands and soaking into her overalls. Needless to say, we were relieved it was just lipstick, even though it was a big mess to clean up.

  107. When I drove my daughter to the airport this week, one of her bags was over weight. We found out that she had 1 1/2 pounds of make-up, but removing it was not an option for her, so she left books and sensible clothing behind instead!

  111. When I was 15 I hadn't started wearing any makeup yet so my wonderful mom decided it was time for me to have my first make over. She made an appointment for a consultation at Clinique and ended up buying me all the makeup that they used for my makeover. Then she then took me to have my hair cut and styles. I have never felt so pampered and special as I did that day! I hope to be able to do this for my daughter when she's old enough. Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!! I would be thrilled to win!

  113. Hmmm... makeup story... I keep trying mineral makeup because it looks like so much fun. But every time, it looks weird on my face and I end up giving it away.

    I got sucked in again just before Christmas and came home with another starter set. I'm trying to salvage some of it, but it's not looking good.

  115. How about last night when Mom came up to me at church and asked, "Is that a bruise?" Then I brushed off a little too much face powder off my chin. Ugh! And I had been wearing it that way all evening!

  116. I was at the mall with my bf and I was wearing eye make up (mascara, some light shadow). We are walking and talking and suddenly he got a bit quiet and started staring at my face. He's not the type to gaze you into the eyes and declare his love, so I got a bit nervous. He just kept on staring, and finally I asked (in a small voice)... "whats wrong?". he replied (very seriously): "your makeup is all over your face".

    turned out my new mascara flaked off in big chunks all under my eyes and on my cheeks... *slapforehead*

  117. Once, I was wearing false eyelashes and I forgot to take them off and went to sleep with them on. One came off in the middle of the night and found its way to my mouth somehow. I woke up screaming, thinking that there was a bug in my mouth and my roommate was none to pleased to be woken up for a false alarm at 3 in the morning! Thank you for this amazing giveaway and please enter me!

  134. Favorite make-up story: making myself over with my mom's bright pink 80s makeup as a child. My mom has a picture of me with pink all over my face (next to the picture of the time I decided to take up shaving).

    Thanks for entering me! :)

  136. Oh gosh, not sure I have a good story... except that my hubby just got an iPod Nano for us, and I had it in my purse the other day... it has a black rubber skin on it so he would look cool carrying it too, and my blusher broke and spilled sparkly dust all over the inside of my purse.

    Now I have a sparkly Nano.

    Its all mine now.

    I LOVE the packaging on the makeup! So fab!

  138. I love to experiment with different types/brands of makeup. I believe I've gotten better with age at the art of applying makeup.

  140. My favorite make up story is actually about my now 6 year old when she was about 3. She was visiting my Mom who adores her and will let her do all sorts of things. When I came to pick her up, the first thing Mom said was there something they needed to tell me about...then I saw my daughter. She looked like she had been beaten from ear to ear. Apparently Mom left her alone with her make up for a few minutes and that was all it took...my daughter had 'decorated' her entire face with brown and blue shades of eye shadow, thus the bruised look. She thought she looked be-u-tee-ful so how could we be mad.:D

  142. I was getting ready to go see family today and my boyfriend was sweet and told me I looked pretty. I said thank you. Then he kind of stuck his foot in his mouth and said 'It's been a long time since you looked pretty like that'.
    Then I just said 'Thanks alot'

    Obviously I need makeup so I can look pretty every day.
