Tricky worldwide giveaways

Why "tricky"? Well, that's because the bloggers hosting the giveaways are Romanian and write in Romanian but when it comes to international brands sponsoring them, I think it's acceptable to give it a shot. I'll try to help with the rules, because who knows what Google will Translate for you.

At the moment, I decided not to enter these giveaways because in order to get a 10-15$ Sigma brush (for example), I'd have to travel to another city to pick it up and waste another 15$ on transport. As you can see, it's not really a worthy deal. BUT, if you win, I'd love to get that info.

I'll start with Lucia's giveaway.
She's now got more than 300 followers and she's giving away a Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki F80, like the one in the image:
 I do think she'll be kind enough to accept English writing, so here are the rules:
1. Follow her blog via GFC
2. Post on your blog about the giveaway, including an active link
3. Leave one single comment ON HER BLOG POST ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY with the following info: GFC name, what would you like to see on the blog (reviews, tutorials, celebrity-inspired make-ups), the link to your blog post about the giveaway and a valid e-mail address.
There's still time until 30.06.2011!


 Byutzika is hosting another Sigma-sponsored giveaway, this time offering an E25 Blending Brush:

The rules:
1. Follow her blog via GFC
2. Like her Facebook page
3. For an eXtra entry, post about the giveaway on your blog
4. For another eXtra entry, tell her what you'd like to see on her blog (i.e. types of make-up)
5. For one final eXtra entry, share the giveaway on your Facebook page, then use the print screen button to take a snap with your wall, paste it into paint, save it and send it via e-mail to

Leave all the necessary data in one comment: your GFC name, your Facebook name, a link to your post (optional), the answer to the question (optional) and a valid e-mail, no matter if you did send a print screen of your wall or not. You should enter the giveaway by 25.06.2011 (the initial deadline was 17.06, but she's so lovely that actually updated it).


Andreea's giveaway is made up of the wonderful Sigma Hollywood Glamour Flat Top Retractable Kabuki also known as Miss Taylor:

Deia's little beauty spot organized yet another Sigma giveaway and this time it's all about the F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush:

You won't have any trouble reading the instructions here by 04.07.2011, because the rules are English-based.

1. Friend her on Facebook
2. Like Sigma's official Facebook page

Extra chances:

Leave a comment here until 26.06.2011. This means that you'll enter your comment NOT on the blog, but through a Facebook post. If you only stick to the first three rules, then only enter with the text between the quotation marks. If you do what's required for the extra chances, then also ADD your GFC name and the link to your post in the same comment.

Oh, boy! Do you think you  can manage all these? I wish you all the luck in the world and if you win, do enjoy it!
