My First Giveaway! A $25 Giftcard to!, which is connected to and (yes, that means this giftcard will work for all three websites), features many great brands including Becca, Paul & Joe and Stila.

Stila is one of the first makeup brands I ever used.  I have actually used up a whole pan of the iconic Kitten eyeshadow, and Peony convertible color (I can't believe I haven't reviewed it yet) has had holy grail status for about 5 years now.  Stila can be found on

This Giveaway is Now Closed!
Now, onto the good stuff, how to win the $25 giftcard! There are three ways to win the giftcard.

3. Visit and blog about what you think.  You could also write about Stila and link it to Apothica. (Bonus: Blog about Stila and link it to Apothica)

Also, you must be a follower of this blog through Google Friend Connect and must provide a valid email address so you can be contacted if you win.  Each of the three options above will count as one entry to the contest, so if you do all three, you gain three entries!
