Party Time!

Happy Birthday Makeup Bag

There’s a party going on at Makeup Bag today and we’re so glad you joined us!

Since this website launched in August 2006, we’ve worked hard to bring you the latest in beauty news and reviews. We’ve attended trade shows and conferences, interviewed some of our favorite beauty bloggers (David Ray of Makeup Beat, Kristen Kelly of Beauty Addict, and Annie of Blogdorf Goodman), and attended San Francisco Fashion Week.

We’ve been named by About.com as one of the Best Beauty Blogs on the Internet and one of Beauty Addicts Top Picks in Toptensources.com.

In honor of our first anniversary we’re giving away random prizes to our readers. Of the 1,500 readers that left comments in the last year (only a handful of which were mean and nasty, thank you) we’ve randomly selected five to win a $25.00 Sephora gift card.

Here’s our winners:

  • Brittany
  • Heidi
  • Marisol
  • Gretchen
  • Megan M.

(Winners will also be notified via email.)

For all our readers that don’t usually leave comments, please say Hi! in the comment section below to let us know you stopped by and you’ll be entered to win some fab goodies. We’ll be doing drawings throughout the day today, so stay tuned.

Comments will close at 7 p.m. (pacific standard time).
