“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” – Marcel Proust


I’ve been wanting to do a giveaway for a little bit now and there’s no time like the present. You guys have been showing ReadBetweenTheEyeliner a lot of love lately and I wanted to celebrate getting over 100 dedicated followers. I’ve been really enjoying blogging this year and I really appreciate those of you who take the time to read, comment, and “like” my posts.

I’ve decided to give away a little bit of makeup, skincare, and literature- everything my blog is about!

I’m giving away:

I included these two novels because the Bildungsroman (a coming of age novel) is my favourite literary genre and these two are a fine, fine, example of the genre. I chose ‘Purple Hibiscus’ partly because Chimamanda is one of my favourite authors and partly because I believe more people should be reading African literature. ‘I Capture The Castle’ is a classic that made me fall in love with Bildungsromane and it’s superbly written by Dodie Smith (of ‘101 Dalmations’ fame).

How to enter:

1. Follow ReadBetweenTheEyeliner, if you haven’t already, either here on WordPress or via Bloglovin’

2. “Like” my brand new Facebook page

2. Leave a comment below telling me either your holy grail makeup product or your all-time favourite book (along with your name and e-mail address).

This giveaway is open internationally to persons over 18 years of age and no entries will be considered after  June 30th. One entry per person only. One lucky person will win everything so good luck!

Hope you all have an excellent week and I can’t wait to read all your entries.

  1. Hii!!!
    All time favorite beauty product would be Milani Matte Glam lipstick but that could change soon.
    Awesome giveaway!


  2. Holy grail makeup would mlbe MAC studio finish concealer! Can’t live without it!
    I honestly cant pick just one book! That’s so difficult 📚📚


  3. Congrats on reaching 100 subscribers! I came across you blog due to Google, and I’m extremely happy I found it. My holy grail product is Nars Taj Mahal blush. It’s an amazing orange color that pops on my chocolate skin.


  4. Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer ! The best product i’ve ever tried, it has full coverage and you can use it as a concealer, or mix it with your moisturizer to make a perfect foundation !
    It is pricey, but it deserves every penny !
    I use it for my stubborn dark circles 😈
    Thanks for the chance, glad i found your blog ! 💋


  5. Congrats on your blog’s success 🙂 My holy grail product at the moment is the current foundation that I’ve been using for the past several months, which is the Urban Decay Naked liquid foundation. It goes on very nicely.


  6. I’m following on wordpress @showstopper474 and liked you on Facebook Julie Raye Rod. I love my Urban Decay Shadow palette. The colors are so me and I love switching up my looks every day.


  7. Hey Nanz,

    I feel like I don’t know enough about make up to have an all-time favourite, it changes so frequently. But BOOK(s)…well I’ma mention 2 as I clearly have an issue with doing as I’m asked! I took ages to respond to this because I really had to think long and hard about this.

    Tsitsi Dangarembga’s Nervous Conditions as it calls out to my love for post-colonial and coming of age books all at the same time. I really enjoyed this book, it only just pipped ‘Purple Hibiscus’ to the post on this though. Second book is a completely different kind – Margaret Atwood’s A Handmaiden’s Tale. Something about that book had such an effect on me, it speaks to my inner activist and I thought it was so cleverly done. It’s got a fantasy element to it that I just love and get’s my feminist juices going.

    Congrats on how the blog is going xXx
