  1. My favorite makeup brand is surprisingly ELF, I absolutely love their products, the quality and the amazing deals they always have! Great 50 follower giveaway Aleksandra <3 I have shared this giveaway on my beauty page link -->
    xoxo !!

  2. My favorite is Covergirl..Ive used since I was a girl and its grown with me. Ive followed all the rules and want to wish us all good luck and thank you PB for the chance :)

  3. Congrats, what a lovely giveaway:D

  4. Congrats again Aleksandra!! My favourite brand is elf and essence. They are both super cheap but offer such a wide range of good quality products! The essence nail polishes are only $1.50 but rival other more expensive bands for quality. My favourite nail polish brand though is Joe Fresh!

  5. Congratulations Aleksandra!! My favourite makeup brand right now would have to be theBalm or Lancome. I love theBalm's cheeky packaging and the Lancome Fever Glosses! The coverage is great on them!

  6. Congratulations! Urban Decay is hands down my favorite brand! I haven't had one product let me down yet (knock on wood) haha.

  7. My favorite make up brand is hmm i think I am going to have to say urban decay because i use my naked palette religiously! Love em! Congrats on the 50 + followers so proud of you lady!! <3

  8. Congrats! :)

    My favorite makeup brand is probably Essence. It's super affordable, which is great for makeup newbies (like myself) trying out tons of different looks, and plus, their ingredients aren't as bad as some other companies that produce products in this price range. I'd love to try ELF products, but I can't seem to find it around here, and shipping is crazy expensive when you consider how expensive (or not) the actual products are.

    Followed as "Melissa P", and shared on FB:!/melissa.pang.71/posts/367447576661815

    Oh, and is this open internationally?

    1. Yes!!! Absolutely! I love having followers from aroun the world!

  9. Congrats!
    Is this Canada only?
    Right now I'm really into nails. So China Glaze is my fave. In the US it's easy to find and is priced right. The color selection is heard to resist. It wears well and drys fast on me.


  10. congrats on 59 and here is to many more!! my favourite brand is definitely benefit! I love everything they put out!

  11. Congrats:)

    My fave brand is probably elf! Great products for a great price!

  12. I am really into Essence as quite a few others have said. I recently discovered them and their affordability makes it easy to try out new looks without worrying about cost. I also like essie nail polish, the one in your giveaway looks so beautiful! Congrats on your giveaway! Good luck ladies!

  13. Congrats!
    Great Giveaway!
    My fav makeup brand at the moment would be Urban Decay.. I cannot get enough of the eye shadows and every time I wear them.. everyone always comments how nice it is! Boost of confidence for sure!

  14. Congrats...

    One of my fav makeup brand would be MyBeautyAddiction $5.00 eyeshadows or if you buy more they have deals.

    She has all the coolest colors that you can't get at a drug store.
