Hello October + GIVEAWAY!

Hello lovelies,

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Summer and that you’re as excited for the Autumn/Winter season as I am! Apologies that I’ve been a bit quiet on the social media front for a little while, college has basically taken up all of my free time away just in the first few weeks and I’m still adjusting but hopefully I’ll get into the swing of things soon and be back to posting daily on my IG and weekly on my blog (the plan is Friday blog posts!)

I don’t know about you but I LOVE the transition into Autumn from Summer. When all the trees go red and orange and wool jumpers start to appear, and popping into Costa to grab a hot chocolate
with a zillion calories + cream and marshmallows (of course) is justifiable…

So anyhow, as we enter the Autumn season, to spread some happiness and excitement with you all I’m going to be doing my first ever giveaway! I was recently invited to attend Maybelline’s ‘behind the scenes’ makeup event at London Fashion Week, which you can read all about here! The team at Maybelline were lovely and did an amazing job organising the event. They were incredibly kind and gifted me some goodies, including all 8 shades from the Vivid Mattes collection!! I’ve been wanting to do a giveaway for a little while so I thought what better time than now? I previously wrote a post reviewing all 8 shades (with swatches) from the collection which you can find here.

This giveaway will include all 8 shades from the Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid lipsticks collection. These shades include some stunning colours for all year round, especially for the Autumn/Winter season, which one of my lucky readers will win! Please note that this giveaway is only for my UK readers.

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win these gorgeous lipsticks is:

1. Pretty please Follow me on Instagram (@gemmanicolebeauty)
2. Like my photo about the giveaway on Instagram
3. Tag 2 friends you think might want to enter too, in the comments on Instagram

and that’s it!

The giveaway is open for the next two weeks and the deadline for entries is Friday 21st October at 12pm (afternoon) and the winner will be picked RANDOMLY (a.k.a I will write down all your names, blindfold Mark, and get him to pick one out of a bowl). The winner will be announced on my Instagram so keep an eye out for notifications!

Thank you for reading my blog beauties!

Love always,
