Apothica.com Giftcard Giveaway

Hey hey, I have great news! I've been contacted by Apothica.com who's offered to let me host a giveaway for my readers. So one lucky reader is going to get a chance to win an awesome gift card! This gift card to be used on SkinCareRx.com, Apothica.com, and SkinBotanica.com. yay!! :D
Apothica's a online beauty store that offers a range of makeup brands like Bobbi brown, Estee Lauder, Paul & Joe, Smashbox, Stila, Yves Saint Laurent, Too Faced ^^, and more! They also do skin care, hair care, bath and body, fragrances, candles, home & laundry. =0 well! It’s not often you see a beauty store with home and laundry items, well at least I think so. :P

When I was browsing their site, I noticed they they've got the Too Faced Pixie Pin-Ups set which I think it really cute x3 Doesn't it look like you're really a story book from the pop ups. lol

The set's got 6 eye shadows in Leading Lady, I Know What Boys Want, Lucky Charms, Heaven, Like a Virgin, and Erotica. The smaller tube of their Shadow Insurance eye primer, Lava Gloss Super Black eyeliner and the Lash Injection Pinpoint mascara in black. I think it'll make a great gift! I’ve read many reviews about how well Too Face’s Shadow Insurance works so I’ve been thinking about trying it out for a long time. Of course there were also reviews where some beauty bloggers have preferred urban decay’s primer potion but packaging wise, I like Too Faced’s more. Mainly because I think it’s much more convenient for it to be in a tube rather than a bottle with a wand.

Well anyway, I guess most of you are probably more interested about this giveaway so I'll get on with it. This contest is open internationally. There are 3 options to enter but you are only required to do at least 1 and leave the details of which one in the comments below. :)
