Prime Beauty Happy Birthday Giveaway!

b'day pic

I started this blog close to 4 years ago just after a traumatic divorce. As a new divorcรฉ andย empty nester, I needed a creative outlet and something to fill the empty hours. I had no idea how important this little blog would become to me or of the opportunities it would provide. I am still amazed that anyone would want to read my blatherings!

Prime Beauty has moved from infancy to toddler to kid and to celebrate, Iโ€™ve been saving up some goodies just for you! Since I love surprises so much, Iโ€™m not going to tell you what awesome prizes are included in this giveaway but there are brands that rhyme with BIT Cosmetics, Barte and Burad.


To enter to win the prize package, tell me in the comments what you would most like to see on Prime Beauty. Fashion for over 40? Makeup Tips? Tutorials? Reviews? Videos? Pics of dogs? Horoscopes? I want to know your thoughts!

Wait for the Rafflecopter to load!

  24. courtney b says

    i like videos of tutorials and of course lots of giveaways !:)

  25. Anne White says

    I’m a “newbie” here but a big huge congrats to you on your 4th anniversary (or birthday, whichever fits better). I myself have been divorced for about three and a half years and just recently began following blogs written and directed towards women and it has been incredibly helpful, fun, and even a form of therapy sometimes! Anyway I love reviews of beauty products (especially drug store brands because I can’t afford the expensive stuff usually), DIY skin/hair care is always great, makeup tips and tricks are always incredibly welcomed, and of course freebies or giveaways because who doesn’t love those? Thanks for all your great posts and your positive attitude! It’s a nice thing to see optimism and smiles! Look forward to coming back soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Since I have a few decades on you, posts about caring for older skin are definitely interesting to me. I love nail products and lip colors but most of all your rare giveaways. More please!

  27. I would like to see more fashion and videos. Thanks!

  28. Product Review and Giveaways!!! I learn so much

  29. Would definitely like to see fashion over 40 posts. Also, tutorials, especially ideas for using the different colors in palettes. Thanks for a chance to win!

  30. I love it when bloggers use what they have. Not every makeup look needs to be all new or mostly new products. I believe the term is: shop your stash.
    Thanks for the giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. perfume giveaways

  32. makeup tips!
    you also cant go wrong with cat pictures ๐Ÿ˜€

  33. Beauty over 40!!

  35. Mamavalveeta03 says

    Congrats, Cindy, on 4 wonderful years of blog posts! Don’t know quite why this came to me (I haven’t even been drinking…;-) ) In honor of you and this momentous occasion:
    “Who can turn the world on with her smile?
    Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
    Well it’s you girl, and you should know it
    With each glance and every little movement you show it
    Love is all around, no need to waste it
    You can have a town, why don’t you take it
    You’re gonna make it after all” (Lyrics from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”)

  36. Mamavalveeta03 says

    Oh, and since I didn’t really answer your question (Well, OK. So I had one beer.):
    More beauty reviews and posts of brands that you think we’d like. I trust your judgement and I’m always happy with your recommendations. Thx!

    I would like to see more fashion.

  52. First of all….HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!
    I love your blog! I think if I have to pick what type of posts I like the most from you it would be reviews. It started with your review of the Sirius Skinsonic. I bought it based on your recommendation and it’s still going strong. It’s an essential part of my beauty routine, so thank you for that. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Here’s to you and many more fabulous years of blogging!

  53. I’m new here, but over 40 posts of makeup, fashion, etc. would be great!

  54. amybelle2001 says

  72. I enjoy makeup reviews, but pictures of dogs are always welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

  73. MaryAnn Casey says

    I love the reviews. How about tips on how to deal with the skin changes? For example, I was cursed with very, very oily and really sensitive skin. Now, my skin isn’t oily (slightly in the t-zone) and now I have to do the opposite with my skincare regimen. Also, how do people who have reached the point where there are deep wrinkles handle it? I’m 46 and even though I’ve used anti-aging products religiously, it’s finally getting obvious that I’m not 20 anymore and I can’t deal with it. How about articles on people who reached the inevitable and how they deal with it and if they’ve accepted it?

  74. Sheila Chaffins says

    I want to see more Vegan things!

  75. I’d love to see more tutorials! Watching how to do something is always very helpful to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  76. Christy Peeples DuBois says

    I love the fashion posts and reviews of cosmetics the most. But I also like variety. I’m sure I will enjoy whatever you choose.

  77. love your tips and also great giveaways

  78. Thanks for this blog, and Happy Blogoversary!
