What's In The Box? Giveaway...and a birthday


Good thing about living in the "future" is, if I miss a certain event, I can still celebrate it the next day via the good ol' U.S. of A. So Lonely in Gorgeous turns 7! I always do a giveaway to commemorate the date, and this year is no different.

I was trying to come up with a giveaway theme related to the blog's seventh B-day, but I was drawing a blank. I kept repeating seven, seven, seven, seven...and then it hit me! What's in the box?! I love the film Se7en. What's not to like? A great story, great soundtrack, a serial killer, and Brad Pitt (when he was still uber hot).

So, inspired by the theme of the the seven deadly sins within the film, I introduce the "What's in the box giveaway."

Answer the seven deadly questions below: you can either answer in the comments, on your blog, or instagram (please include links in the comments if you post on your blog or instagram).

1. Gluttony: Which beauty product(s) do you have the most of in your collection?

2. Sloth: Which makeup (or skincare) step are you the laziest at applying/doing?

3. Greed: If you could own everything from one brand, which brand would that be?

4. Pride: What item (s) in your collection are you the most proud to own?

5. Lust: What beauty product(s)/collection release are you lusting for?

6. Envy: What beauty product(s), that are no longer available, do you wish you owned?

7. Wrath: What beauty/skincare product(s) do you dislike.

Here's how is works:

You get one entry if you're subscribed to the blog via "the enablers." Long-time enablers get two entries.

Two entries if you're subscribed to, both, the blog and Instagram.

Three entries if you blog, tweet, and/or Instagram the giveaway (please include links or tag me).

Four entries for every additional blog post, tweet, or Instagram feature of the giveaway before the giveaway ends (again, please link the post in the comments, thank you!). 

What you win:

Seven ADDICTION eye shadows of your choice...plus, some surprise extras.

What's in the box giveaway ends on November 9th (1+1=2 and 2-9=7, get it!), at 11:59p.m. (GMT+9).

This giveaway is open internationally.

If you have any questions, feel free to email or message me in the comments.

I hope you enjoy this giveaway, and I look forward to reading your answers.

    Such a fun theme, Liz, I love it! Happy Birthday to the blog!

    1. Gluttony: Which beauty product(s) do you have the most of in your collection?
    Blush... hands down.

    2. Sloth: Which makeup (or skincare) step are you the laziest at applying/doing?
    foundation for makeup, masks for skincare.

    3. Greed: If you could own everything from one brand, which brand would that be?
    hmm, tough call. I'm gonna say Suqqu just to do away with the hassle of tracking it down :)

    4. Pride: What item (s) in your collection are you the most proud to own?
    Givenchy Le Rouge Kyoto edition!

    5. Lust: What beauty product(s)/collection release are you lusting for?
    Pat McGrath to re-release an old lab kit.

    6. Envy: What beauty product(s), that are no longer available, do you wish you owned?
    see 5 above; Pat McGrath Phantom002 kit.

    7. Wrath: What beauty/skincare product(s) do you dislike.
    Tarte; I swear 99% of their palettes look exactly the same with a different name slapped on them. Also, anything from Too Faced that is scented nowadays. I miss their old boudoir aesthetic.

  3. 1. Gluttony - Blush and nail polish. Guilty if loving peachy pink blush and OPI nailpolish.
    2.Sloth - eyeshadow base.
    3.Greed - toughest question - maybe Marc Jacobs.
    4.Pride - Burberry eyeshadow palette, because I hit pan on one.
    5. Lust - Pat McGrath highlighter and eyeshadows.
    6.Envy - ABH Mario palette - At first thought it was boring, but all the media attention got me eventually, when it was sold out.
    7.Kylie and KKW - just don't get the hype.

  4. Gluttony: Eyeshadow...if its lavender,mint or taupe...it has to be mine,and its never enough. Lipsticks that are not too glossy , that lean slightly cool and and have a hint of lavender. If I see one, then I have to have it.

    Sloth: Face masks...this may be a compounded personal sin..there is just not enough patience in me to wait for a mask to do its work.As well, eye lash curlers.

    Greed: The one brand I would want everything from would be Nars, future and past products included, with backups. Then, the aptly named Addiction line.

    Pride: The limited edition Alexander Wang x Maquillage eye palette with the gorgeous neutrals and burgundy liner included. It is just perfect.

    Lust: Ohh anything Sisley, easily. Just too expensive but intriguing. Mmm, let's add Tom Ford eyeshadows.

    Envy: Shiseido perfect rouge in fantasia...my perfect mode lavender pink, now discontinued. As well, I wished I bought a back up for Nars silent nude...my perfect nude blush, which is just about finished up. Urgh.

    Wrath: Lipgloss, face sheet masks, the smell of Mac lipsticks,the reducing volume of recent high end foundation.

    Thank you!.

  7. 1. Gluttony: That would be foundation and cobalt eyeshadow/ eyeliner which brought me to this blog!

    2. Sloth: SPF under makeup

    3. Greed: Currently that would be Monsieur Surratt’s

    4. Pride: My Caron powder compact in Sable / my Stéphane Marais makeup - he was an innovator.

    5. Lust: Dior Face and Body Foundation - I’m all about that base... anything by Rodin...

    6. Envy: A bottle of Eau de Patou, a Clinique SuperNude lipstick, Versace lipgloss (90s) purely for sentimental reasons.

    7. Wrath: Anything that promotes unrealistic beauty claims/standards and not cruelty free... no unicorn’s blood, skinny bxxxxes or gold leaf masks (gold is inert people !!!) lurking in my cabinet...

  9. 1. Gluttony: Which beauty product(s) do you have the most of in your collection? This is a toss up between lipsticks and blush. I'm definitely more on the blush buying mood this year though and have bought maybe 12 so far.

    2. Sloth: I'm most lazy about applying face primer and I've skipped that one out for a very long time, especially that I couldn't really find one that I like.

    3. Greed: I really like Chanel's aesthetic and slowly building up my tiny collection.

    4. Pride: Lunasol Skin Modeling Eyes in Beige Beige, because it was the first high-end makeup I bought ever

    5. Lust: I have a lot but Suqqu's Pure Color Blush in Urushibi is very high on my wish list. RMK's Fall 2018 Midnight Flower Blush in 03 Victorian Rose is a close second.

    6. Envy: Canmake Cream Cheek in CL03 Clear Orange. I've panned mine and they discontinued it. Also, the Maquillage x Sailor Moon cases.

    7. Wrath: Benefit's Porefessional, it feels so plastic and feels like my skin can't breathe underneath it

  10. Well , happy 7th BDay ! May we enjoy many more :D
    Okay lets get down to the answers and then I'll move on to my questions lol

    1. Gluttony : Finishing powders ....
    2. Sloth : Intricate eyeshadow application ! I just swipe & swish 2 shades of brown (or what I deem as a variation of a brown eyeshadow lol ) and that's it .
    3. Greed : Cle De Peau !
    4. Pride : old Chanel quads :)
    5. Lust : sadly this is a very hard one since I think the market has been over saturated for the past 4-5 years and nothing is really grabbing my attention .... I'm only lusting for those Astalift Flarosso eyeshadow quads because they remind me of the old Suqqu ones :'(
    6. Envy : E.L. Modern Mercury :((((((
    7. Wrath : Matte liquid lipsticks & hugeee highlighters .....

    I'm looking for a warm tone red / tangerine cream blush , any recommendations ?
