I started this blog as a way to share my passion for art/beauty...and since I've started blogging, I've met such wonderful people! 
So! I've decided to start a giveaway to meet more new people!
 & for the people I've already "met" through blogging, I want to know more about you! :)

The winner will receive:
1. Tokidoki Love From London Palette. (Limited Edition)
  Includes eight eyeshadows, one bronzer, and a key chain.
 2. Ciate Sequined Manicure Set in Tutu Pink*
  (OR a MAC lipstick/eyeshadow of your choice!)
3. Dior Diorshow New Look Mascara. (Deluxe sample)
4. Sephora by OPI Betsey Johnson Trend Tips -- Nail Polish Strips
5. Model 21, No. 18 Eyelashes. (10 pairs)
*If your country does not allow nail polish shipments, I will replace it with a MAC lipstick or eyeshadow of your choice! :) 

How to Enter: 
1. Follow me on GFC and bloglovin'
2. Comment below with a way for me to contact you (email, twitter, or instagram) 
and since I am giving 5 things away, tell me five things about yourself! 
That way I can get to know you better AND you get a chance at winning all of these wonderful goodies! :p

For extra entries:
Share this giveaway on your twitter, instagram, or blog.
(+1 for each one. Post the link to this giveaway then #luxeandlushhgiveaway if you share this on twitter or instagram)
If you do this, please be sure to include in your comment where you shared it!

Of course I'm not going to leave you hanging and not tell you five things about myself...

here are five things about me. :) 

1. I'm mixed and fluent in every language I am.
 (Nationalities: Asian/Pacific Islander/Latina)
2. I am located in the SF Bay Area. (United States) 
3. I am a professional ballerina dancer...on Tuesday front of the bathroom mirror. 
5. I work and study in the law field, though I have a huge passion for art and anything that has to do with art!  I paint, draw, play musical instruments, produce music, do the occasional picture-taking with my expensive camera :P, and of course...make-up!
5.  It took me years to decide to go public with this blog.
I am a very private person, so it was very hard for me to decide to do this and open up some of my life to complete strangers! Glad I finally decided to go through with it because I've met such wonderful people. :) 

The winner will be chosen randomly, using a random website generator, and announced on my blog the day after the giveaway ends.
If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.
Winner will receive all the items stated above and more extra goodies from me! 

Everyone is allowed to enter.
If you are under 18, ask your parent(s) or guardian(s) before you enter.

Last day to enter is FRIDAY, MAY 31ST.
I've decided to extend this giveaway and I will be adding a lot more goodies to this!

This is not sponsored. The items were not given to me and I purchased all of the items on my own.
