Because You’re Fabulous Giveaway!!!

I am shy and insecure.

Stop sniggering. I am.

As a result of this deep-rooted insecurity, I will not leave the house unless I feel pretty.
However, feeling pretty isn’t always possible if my roots need to be done, the bags under my eyes are big enough to garage my mini-van, or I have a zit the size of Mount Vesuvius on my cheek (current condition! That mother is so big, it’s affecting my ability to see peripherally out of my left eye).

I’ll be honest, I don’t always have time to put on a full face of makeup.
But the two things I won’t leave the house without applying first are mascara and foundation powder by BYF.

BYF (Because You’re Fabulous) not only provides style consulting services, but it also provides top of the line mineral makeup.
Since trying on the loose foundation powder, I’ve never put anything else on my face.

Today until October 17th, you will have the chance to win a terrific gift package full of goodies courtesy of BYF valued at over $250.00.

The lucky person will win a wonderful mascara, loose powder foundation with brush, eye shadow colour of your choice, lipstick colour of your choice, and a skin care pack comprising the GREEN TEA & GRAPE SEED/ YUMMY CITRUS-Y GOODNESS SHOWER SET.

There are several ways to enter this awesome giveaway. Each one of the below classifies an an entry, so if you really want to win, do one and leave me a comment saying you have, or if you really really really want to win, do all four, and leave me four separate comments.

The lucky person will be contacted by BYF to discuss foundation colours and which eye shadow and lipstick colour is wanted, so be sure to leave your email address in one of your entries.

So here’s what you gottta do!

-like BYF on Facebook and leave a little comment saying what you’re most excited about in the giftpack

-follow me on GFC

-Tweet about the giveaway mentioning via @AbsoNarcissism

-like me on Facebook

And in case you’re wondering, yes, I’m totally compensated for this post.
BYF is my sponsor and Janella, the owner, makes my shiny shiny competiting bikinis.

    Can you believe I am not even interested in winning this? I haven’t worn make up in so long, I htink I would croak if I put it on and clogged my face. I used to wear eye shadow and mascara all the time, and always lipstick. And nail polish. And then, one day, I decided it was all poison and that was the end of that. Now you get me naked 24/7. Au naturel. Natural beauty, they call it.

      Dear Sparkling 74,

      You’re right. It is all poison…. except my stuff is totally different that “their” stuff. Really. I promise. 100% money back guarantee. Full or empty. Don’t care. I’ve only ever had one return — out of about 1500 customers.

    Are you kidding me? I will NEVER put on makeup . . . lol OK, maybe a little SPF30 from time to time . . . Nor do I do the Twitter thing . . . Nor Facebook . . . But, I DO read, workout, meditate, visit the beach, etc . . .

    I could use new make-up. But, who am I kidding? No more than I wear the stuff, it would totally be a waste. When I was a teen, I never left the house without it. Fast forward a decade(or 2) and I barely put it on.
