GIVEAWAY: 300 Followers! **CLOSED**

I've reached 300 followers and I am SO excited! I want to thank everyone for being so supportive. When I started doing this blog, I didn't expect anyone to ever read it.

I wanted to celebrate reaching 300 but also celebrate the new year... so I figured a giveaway would be the perfect chance!

Here's what you have the chance of winning:

- e.lf. Get The Look: Day to Night
- e.l.f. Hypershine Gloss set
- e.l.f. Beauty Encyclopedia - Neutrals Edition
- Stila Fabulous in Fiji mini palette
- China Glaze Sugar Plums nail polish
- China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses nail polish (very hard to find, from Holiday 2010)
- Milani Baked Eyeshadow in Famous (new!)

I really liked the e.l.f. items I got for myself and wanted to give some away, and I heard nothing but good things about the polishes so I thought they'd go great in the giveaway!

Here are the rules:
1) As usual, you must be a follower of my blog. HOWEVER, in this giveaway I will be automatically giving all of my current followers one entry. If you find this post and follow (so if you're after 305), you will obviously be included as well. All followers will be counted up to the deadline of the giveaway.
*If you subscribe in some other way, please tell me. I will be unable to see anyone that does not show in my Google Friend Connect.

2) For an additional entry, you can leave a comment on this post telling me what you'd like to see more of on this blog.

3) The contest will end on January 16, 2011 at 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time.

4) I will announce the winner within 48 hours and they will then have 48 hours to contact me, or I will choose another winner! I can be reached at guitarsoloist07@yahoo.com

5) Please DO NOT leave your email information anywhere in the comments. This is to protect your information and also prevent any bots from spamming you. They prey on giveaway posts. I will be forced to remove any comments containing said information.

Of course I do this.
- 1 additional entry: Follow CydonianMU on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway. Please @ me in the tweet so that I can see it and count it.
- 1 additional entry: "Like" Turtle Beauty on Facebook and spread the giveaway post on your wall. Please tag Turtle Beauty so that I can see it.
- 2 additional entries: Post this giveaway on your own personal blog. As usual, blogs made solely for giveaway will NOT count.
- 5 additional entries: Create an original makeup look using some form of glitter... it can be glitter eyeliner, loose glitter on your lips, anything! Go for it! It must be for this giveaway only. You can post it on your blog and link it to me, or you can email me your photos. If you email them, please hold up a sign with your email address so that I know the pictures are yours.

Good luck everyone and I wish I could give a present to all of you! Thanks so much, again.

  4. Congrats !!!! I Went crazy when I got 50 followers on new years day haha !

    This is a great giveaway. I would like to see makeup looks and more reviews :)

    I will be posting this giveaway on my blog and also doing the glitter look cos it sounds so fun. Can't wait for tomorrow ! Yay !

    Congrats once again !

  5. I'm already a follower (one of the current 305)

    I'd like to see more lip swatches, the ones you do look rather elegant so more is always better!

  6. What a fun giveaway :) I have that Stila palette and love it!

  7. I would like to see more drug store makeup reviews. I love the reviews so far.

  8. I would love to see more tutorials! I remember you doing one not so long ago (with the Naked palette, i think) and it was gooooood!

  9. Enter me please! I'm one of your "old" followers.

    I would love to see more tutorials.

    Posted your giveaway in my side bar:

    Followed you on twitter and Tweeted about your giveaway: http://twitter.com/#!/wednesdei/status/22503831552131072

    Liked you FB page (Bec San Diego)


  10. Congrats on the 300 followers! Isn't the blogging community awesome!?

    I'd just like to continuing to see looks and reviews. I think you do GREAT reviews!

  11. I'm a current follower. :) I follow on GFC under the name Lace Escapades, but my actual name is Kieran. :)

    I would like to see more photo tutorials, because I really, really love the ones you do already!

  12. Very cool giveaway, and very generous. I would love to see more FOTD, they are so inspiring. Reviews are great too.

  13. I like the photo tutorials and FOTD/looks the best I think. I followed a link from Makeup Geek and followed you after I got a clue about how to use that feature, but I was reading regularly before that. We have the same shade skin along with very similar coloring in general, so when I see your pics I can get a pretty decent idea of how these products/shades would look on me and that's really helpful.

  14. I'm a current follower :D
    Thanks for this lovely giveaway :)

  64. Congrats on reaching 300 followers! I follow through GFC as Sterling Morgenstern & am on Twitter as Morgensterling. I loved your purple lipstick swatchfest, I think it would be cool to do more colour sets, it's always fun to see comparisons, especially cross-brand, it helps show the uniqueness of each product and showcases different brands/colours people might not have considered before. Thanks and Cheers!

    Whatever you're writing now is already fine but I guess I particularly like to see swatches and comparisons of cheap and exp items ^^ And oh, hauls too.

    Posted in my blog : http://sugarcoatedmuffin.blogspot.com/2011/01/january-giveaways.html

    I actually did the glitter look but on one eye only. Crap.. So I'll see if I have time for a full face.

    Thanks! ^^

  83. I follow in GFC as Donna J but it somehow goes through my twitter, which I never use, instead of my blogger profile. Anyway, I am an old follower, one of the 305.

    What I liked was learning more about you when you answered the fifteen questions. Not that I think you should do that again! But it's nice to see the human side of bloggers instead of just the beauty products. I like when bloggers talk about themselves, their other interests,, and their lives in general, as much as they are comfortable with.

  84. I have recently followed you via GFC by the name of 'TEEZLES' and having gone through your blog after a while, I have noticed that you should do NOTDs, DIY/craft posts or tips for everyday use? That would be fabulous. I'm not sure if this counts but I also liked your Facebook page already.

  85. Hello , enter me please.
    I am a new follower who was seeking Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer Review and saw yours! informative review,thank you :)

    I am following you as "your style is your signature" , i would like to see more reviews coz that helps us to learn about the products we would buy!

    Thank you .
