I Live to Shine


OmiGOSH giveaway

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Lol, the title is kinda lame, but it is a GOSH giveaway to celebrate Sparkled Beauty turning one. Gosh is one of my favorite brands as I love both their makeup and nail polish, so I think it would be a fun giveaway for you guys.

What I am going away:
- Gosh Waterproof Eyeshadow Stick in Love That Cool Mint - awesome as a base to pop your main shadow colour
- Gosh Eyeshadow single in 283 (Yellow) - my favorite colour
- Gosh Duet Eyeshadow in 50 (Silver/ Grey) - thought it'd be cool for a smokey look
- Gosh Effect Powder in 01 (Green Fingers) - gorgeous baby blue colour, and
- Gosh nailpolishes in 547 (Blue Monday), 553 (Black Passion) and 562 (Magic Star) - some of my favorite shades.

The rules:
You have to be a follower of this blog. International and new followers are welcome. I do check, so don't cheat!

1. Post about the giveaway on your blog and leave the link to your post.
2. Follow me on twitter and RT using the green "retweet" button at the bottom of the post, or retweet my tweet about the giveaway. Please leave the direct link to your tweet.

The giveaway ends on Friday, May 21, 2010 at 11:59PM ADT (Atlantic Daylight Time). The winner will be randomly selected from all qualified entries (through and notified by Sunday, May 23. He/she will have 48 hours to get back to me with shipping information, or a new winner will be selected.

I bought the prize and pay for shipping myself. I will have proof of mailing the package but will not be responsible if the prize is lost in transit. I hope you understand.

It has been a really fun journey with you guys and I hope there'll be more anniversaries to come.


  1. Hey Halifax!

    I absolutely don't remember how I found your blog! But most of the times, I like to check blogs that are in the followers list of blogs I already follow.

    My favourite topic would be... hauls! I don't know why, I always enjoy seeing what bloggers buy.

  2. I posted your giveaway in the sidebar of my blog:

  3. I already follow you on Twitter and I retweeted using the green "retweet" button at the bottom of the post: (I have no idea how to leave the direct link to the tweet since I'm still new to Twitter)

  4. Great prize :) I discovered your blog after we were introduced on Twitter by the lovely @MsNaz ;)

    And my favorite posts are the Winners finds (since I am a Winners-aholic!lol).

    I Rt'ed your tweet about the giveaway. It might be the killer humidity we are having here but I can't seem to figure out how to directly link you to my tweet. So here is my twitter:

    I also blogged about your OmiGOSH giveaway.

    Goodluck everyone!

  5. I found your blog when researching Canadian cosmetic brands! I have been a reader ever since and look forward to all your posts! I also re-tweeted about your wonderful giveaway on twitter!

  6. Hi sweetie, I think you found my blog first and this is how I found yours :)

    I love your deal alert type posts and your hauls :)

    Thanks for having the giveaway, the prizes are awesome! xxx


  7. Following through Google Friend Connect! I found your blog through Nouveau Cheap's blogroll.

    Love your hauls!

  8. Hey shugs, awesome giveaway! I first encountered your blog on Nouveaucheap.blogspot a few months ago but apparently forgot to follow you. But I've loved browsing through your haul posts! They're always fun, especially when you get cute polishes.


  9. Hey!

    I was introduced to your blog by: Macbella2 thru twitter

    I really enjoy your hauls and reviews!!

  10. I also posted about your giveaway in my sidebar at:

    thanks :)

  11. Yay great giveaway :)
    Thanks for giving us this opportunity!

    I'm a follower, I actually can't believe I wasn't before, I've been reading you for so long. If I do remember correctly I think the first time I checked out Sparkled beauty was after a comment you left on my blog, also very clearly remember being a little jealous of your nice sleek layout ^_^ If I still lived in Canada my favourite type of article would definitely be the Weekly Flyer Deals 'cause I'm a bargain hunter...I still go through them regularly though (silly, eh?)
    Oh and my email is
    moncoinamoua (at) hotmail (dot) com

  12. I found your blog while looking for Annabelle review/swatches :) and I love the posts on brands that aren't that well helps me explore different makeup brands!


  13. I found your blog through NouveauCheap when ELF started sellingon Target and Zeller shelves. I love Gosh too, this giveaway is great! What I like most about your blog is when you post the weekly flyer sales & what not! If my flyers go missing (greedy neighbors) I can always come to your blog & find the scoop on beauty sales!

  14. Hey there. I'm a follower through google friend connect. I found your blog because you somehow found mine and I always look to see whose following me, thank you. I've got your giveaway listed in my giveaway section w/a link. Here's my blog:
    And I've not ever tried GOSH products and really want to as I've learned about them through MUA swaps.
    and my email: DragonRhia(at)gmail(dot)com
    Thank you for the thoughtful giveaway. :)

  15. Heya!! Congratulations on making it through the one-year mark! (Not as easy to do, especially with a blog. Keeping it maintained is definitely a labor of love.) I follow you on Twitter, and through Google FriendConnect.

    I forget how I found your site. I think I followed the sidebar link from someone else's site.

    I don't really have a favorite kind of post - I just pop in every now and again to see what's going on. Mostly, though, I wanted to say - congrats on your one-year blogiversary!! You made it!!
