Giveaway - CLOSED

I bought a few bits recently with a view to putting them together as a prize. There's no particularly event to celebrate, this is more of a just-for-the-hell-of-it kind of thing! Anyway, here are the JFTHOI prizes.




There's a BECCA Automatic Eye pencil in Majorca (black) released with the Halcyon Days collection. a BECCA Professional Brush Soap, an Avoir La Pêche collection palette from Sleek and an All For Eve Body Scrub. I've included a close up picture of the Sleek palette and you can see it is a little dusty but it is brand new and unused.

To enter you need this giveaway you need to do the following.

1. Leave me a comment to this post telling me which are your favourite kinds of posts on Modesty Brown (have I mentioned before that I am nosy?).

2. You need to be a follower of this blog via Google Friends Connect or email. Please let me know which way you follow in your comment.

3. Please leave me your email address to contact you if your comment does not link to your blog or profile.

This is an international giveaway so it is open to everyone. I know this a bit dull but as this a giveaway for followers, I reserve the right to remove any entries that I suspect are not from genuine blog readers.

The giveaway will remain open for entries until 10th June 2011, 21:00 BST. 

Best of luck! x

    My favourite kind of post is the Friday Confessional - it is so much fun to read! :D

    (P.S. you mean it is open till the 10th of June, not May?)

  2. YAY!!! I'm would love to enter this contest. I've been lemming that Becca Brush Soap since I saw it on Karen's blog! I've never tried these illustrious Sleek palettes either.

    My favourite posts will always be ones showing swatches and pictures of products. Being an exclusively online shopper I rely on them (and appreciate them) so much!

    Thanks for the great giveaway! We'll just say it's to celebrate your awesomeness!!

  3. Oooh ya lovely little Marmot you... go on, give us an entry! I follow by email ( and sometimes say hi on twitter (@georgiegirl1985) I'm the other moonface!!

  4. Thank you Ki! Yes, I definitely mean June not May. I've amended that now. Thanks for spotting it x

    Georgie, your marmot comment really made me smile. Have a lovely Friday Moonface :D x

  5. Honestly, I think I like your Friday Confessionals and reviews the best, you're such an enabler!

    I follow via GFC as Rocaille :) Thank you for that awesome giveaway!

  6. My favorite posts are about hair, particularly dyeing hair and hair cuts. I am not really good with hair, and as we have similar hair color and length, I appreciate all the advice I can get!

    I follow you via GFC and can be reached at

    P.S. I also really like the beauty shots you have on your sidebar. I'd be interested to see you do some inspiration posts in the future. You have an eye for intriguing makeup looks.

  7. Hello! Nice giveaway, haven't tried a Sleek palette yet and initially was a bit afraid of all the colour in this one but I think the peach with the greys could be very workable! I really like your eye shadow reviews, you generally have lots of photos and for me thats vital! x

  10. I love your taupe eyeshadow reviews - my favourite colour too!

    I follow via GFC

  11. How nice to have a giveaway JFTHOI!

    My favourite ever post of yours was your taupes comparison one, and in general I like posts comparing the same colours, or types of products from the same brands, e.g. a post about Nars blushers.

    All for Eve body scrub is calling my name so if it's not through here I get it, I shall be purchasing v soon!

  12. I love your reviews, mainly because you buy brands I wont be able to afford for a LONG time. Is that just torturing myself? Probably!

    I follow through GFC as Beauty's Bad Habit.


  13. Hey doll! Happy follower for awhile now :] Via Google- Soulfulsuga. My favorite posts from you are hands down the reviews- you are very honest and you always provide the right information, along with great photos!


    Thank you for the fabulous opportunity, Peach is my favorite shade and I only own one shadow of this shade! The palette looks amazinggggg! Ive never heard of/tried the others but they look lovely! Thanks again beautiful, good luck to everyone! ♥

  17. Wow! Another super generous are truly spoiling your readers Ms Brown :)
    I don't think I should enter seeing as I won (and have been thoroughly enjoying) the last one. I will, however, say that I very much enjoy your reviews, not only because they are very well thought out and exhaustive, but also for the excellent photography (swatches and actual use). I find these photographs of great help when I'm contemplating future purchases and will confess to keeping them on file for reference.

  45. Yay! My favorite types of posts on Modesty Brown are your reviews (sorry to be so general!) because you tend to review a lot of brands that I'm intrigued by but haven't tried either due to accessibility or price point (i.e. Le Metier de Beaute and BECCA). I follow through GFC, by the way :)

  46. Whoops -nearly missed this because I left it to 'think about it' lol! My favourite posts are the ones about how to do a quick look in the mornings with children to get ready too - and also anything about taupe - I really didn't appreciate taupe at all until I tried it after your posts - I have the BobbiBrown Denim palette, and hadn't used the Gray Denim - now I LOVE it - so thanks for finding me a really flattering new shade :) Follow via GFC - too_busy_to_stitch
