Hourglass Cosmetics Giveaway

 Hourglass Cosmetics Giveaway

Happy New Year!  I'm really looking forward to 2013, and I hope you are too. I have a lot of wonderful things planned this year including many more product reviews, tips, tutorials and of course giveaways!  I hope you've had a chance to read my post about Hourglass Cosmetics. If you haven't, you can read it here: http://makeupmattersbylnc.blogspot.com/2012/12/spotlight-hourglass-cosmetics.html

Hourglass is a luxury makeup brand that I've really been enjoying over the past year. Their makeup and brushes are luxurious and they offer several vegan choices in their cosmetic line. If you watched my New Year's Eve message on YouTube, you'll know that I am overwhelmed with gratitude for my wonderful readers and supporters of my blog. Spreading the message about cruelty free beauty is really important to me. I want animal testing to stop. I want companies to realize, that we care about being kind, and that is what's truly beautiful. I want to support brands that do not test on animals. Despite the fact that Hourglass is a luxury brand, they never test on animals. So I am offering this giveaway to my readers as a way to give back and show my appreciation. I realize not everyone can afford this brand, so I want to give you, my readers, a little bit of luxury the cruelty free way.

  24. Hourglass is a great cosmetic brand, but I’m afraid of getting addicted to it because it’s a little bit pricey. LOL!
