100th Lip Six-and a giveaway!

Happy Monday!  This is my 100th Lip Six post...I actually still love doing them because quite simply I love lipstick!

My last 6 lip picks were:

Top row (L) Sephora Luster Matte Long Wear lip colour in Nude Pink Lustre  (R) Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Rebellious Rose

Middle row (L) NARS Audacious lipstick in Greta (review!)  (R) Buxom Cream lip gloss in Berry Blast

Bottom row (L) Shu Uemura Tint In Gelato in PK 02 (R) Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 505 Second Skin (review!)

When I did my 50th Lip Six I hosted a giveaway simultaneously to say thank you everyone who takes the time to support me by reading my blog.  I've decided to replicate the giveaway again now!

Blogging is really hard when you also have a full time job.  In all honesty, sometimes I do wonder if it's worth it when a post you spend hours putting together gets one or two comments, or I can never ever seem to cross that 5000 followers mark on Instagram.  But then on the flip side, I don't have the time to dedicate to growing my blog by posting more frequently and engaging with other bloggers.  I hang my head in shame that I just don't have the time to read and comment on some of my favourite blogs regularly anymore.  I still adore instagram and I love instastories too-but again, it's hard to keep up with everyones content.  So if I can't do it for others, do I deserve it for myself?

And I am super proud of what I do post.  I've never done a sponsored post and I can count the number of times I have been sent something from a PR company on both hands.  And have fingers spare.  I've never worked out why I don't seem to be PR friendly-it could be that I struggle to attend events because of my job here in Dubai, because even after 4 years at this I am still a 'small' (or I believe 'micro' is the new buzzword) blogger or because I am not your typical 'beautiful blogger'.  That being said, I believe my voice is valid, my opinions are totally honest and I love make up enough to know what I am talking about.  I ramble a lot but I am completely bullshit free.

Above all, I have met the most incredible people through blogging and I love love love the community.  And I am so grateful for the support, the friendship, the inspiration and the loyalty.

So to celebrate my 100th Lip Six I am again giving you the chance to win your own 'lip six'.  The prize will be 6 lipsticks of your choice from one of my favourite brands-MAC.  Currently I own more MAC lipsticks than any other brand and the number in my collection is now somewhere in the 80's.

Please do read the rules carefully as this is quite a logistically challenging giveaway-but the good news is, it is an international giveaway!


1-Please enter via the Rafflecopter widget below

2-The prize will be 6 MAC lipsticks of your own choice.  Limited Edition colour requests may not be honored if the shade is not available.  You can choose any lipstick formula available and may also chose any lip gloss/liquid lip/lip pencil in your selection.

3-The giveaway will be open from Monday 13th February 2017 until Monday 13th March 2017

4-The winner will be emailed and will have 7 days to chose their chosen 'lip six' shades.  The prize will then be purchased by me in the easiest way I see fit.  I will either a) Purchase your chosen shades directly from your home country MAC website and have them shipped to you directly b) Purchase the shades from a store here in Dubai and send them to you by courier or c) Purchase the shades from the MAC UK website and have my mum ship them to you (she doesn't know that bit yet lol).  Please therefore allow for reasonable postage time.

5-The winner will be chosen by the Rafflecopter widget
