Cosmetopia Digest, formerly known as My Beauty Junction, is a beauty and makeup blog that is your cosmetics utopia on the internet. You will find unboxings of beauty boxes that ship worldwide, makeup reviews, tutorials and looks, skin and hair care product reviews and features, shopping tips, nail art and more.
Space NK's Spring Beauty Edit for 2019 launched a little later this year - usually they have theirs in late February; this time's gift with purchase comes by the end of the first week of March. They accidentally launched a little too early, owing to some glitch, on the 6th of March, and then the offer was taken down within about half an hour - by which time some people ended up buying it! Space NK then confirmed on Instagram that the GWP would launch about a week later, and everyone would get theirs at around the same time. This is a free gift of 27 products that you get when you purchase products on their website for £175. It comes with a makeup mat, a Diptyque candle, the new Omorovicza Vitamin C, and more. But all that in a minute. Get yours here - use code BEAUTY19 at checkout. Scroll down for the contents of the Space NK Spring Beauty Edit 2019.
The first big gift with purchase of 2019 is here, and it is from Cult Beauty. The set is a 23-piece collection of products from "industry leaders worldwide", and comes with a £15 gift card (right in time for my birthday, haha). The whole thing is worth more than £350, and is yours free with purchase of products worth £175. VIPs (customers who have spent £500+ in a calendar year on the website) get early access with code FOUNDERS19. All customers get access from Monday, 25 February, without any code, upon adding products worth £175 in your cart. The products included cover makeup - there's a Shiseido lipstick in there, people - skincare, hair care, and bath and body, and there's a variety of new brands, not the usual suspects. I'll tell you what's inside the goody bag, and what I'm buying! Scroll down for the contents of the Cult Beauty Founders' Goody Bag GWP for Spring 2019.
As promised earlier, here's the very first giveaway of 2019. A bit late, given that my blogiversary went by without a whimper. As I said, the year hasn't had the best of starts for me, with a massive health scare for my Dad (multiple clots in brain, odontoid fracture, and peripheral neuropathy). We're hoping and praying that things resolve soon, so please do bear with me. As though that wasn't enough, I ended up with wheat exposure, and landed in the ER for the first time since August. Cue hydrocort and antihistamine shots, and now there's acne to boot, as a result of the former. Ah well. Anyway. Giveaway. Prizes first. ONE winner gets everything in the photograph below. Scroll down to enter my First Makeup Giveaway Of 2019.
The first thing to do is apologise to you for being AWOL on this blog. Without going into a sob-story, or airing my laundry here, 2019 hasn't had the greatest of starts for me. And, just when I thought life was beginning to look up in the second week, my Dad ends up diagnosed with multiple brain clots, peripheral neuropathy, and an odontoid fracture. Hopefully, things will improve as the year progresses. Which is why I was not only AWOL, but also late with these results. Now, before I tell you the results, here's the plan for the next couple of giveaways. I have a fabulous, fun beauty-themed 2019 year planner that I got as a GWP from The Face Shop (no, it's BIG, not small) - I got two as I had two skincare hauls - to give away first. That giveaway goes live within a couple of hours of this post, but will end in two weeks, because you want your 2019 planner sooner rather than later. Trust me, it is a seriously fun planner and a must-have for every beauty junkie! There will obviously be a makeup giveaway for my blogiversary, but it starts in the last week of January (depending on my schedule) - so do stay tuned for that. Hint: Hello Kitty is involved! Right. Now that I've whetted your appetites, let's get on with the results of the Holiday 2019 giveaway. Drumroll.....

As promised, here is my Holiday 2018 Makeup Giveaway - open worldwide. This, obviously, is the last giveaway of this year, but we resume in January, as I celebrate SIX years of this blog. I know I've concentrated on YouTube, and haven't been as active as I would like on this blog, but I promise you that I'm still here! Anyway. Holiday Giveaway. Prizes first. ONE winner gets everything in the photograph below. Scroll down to enter my Holiday Makeup Giveaway 2018.
Before anything else - today marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War One, and the signing of the Armistice. Thirty-two men from my Gramps's village went out to fight, in 1914. Only thirty-one returned. The War touched every corner of the globe, in one way or the other. This, for me, is a moment to remember the fallen, and to pledge to do what we can to bring about peace and avoid war. We will remember.
Right. On to less solemn things. Giveaways. I have my Holiday giveaway starting out today, in a bit. I also have the results of the Autumn Giveaway. I know some of you were quite impatient for this one; my apologies - I went through the entries in five days, which is a bit of a record for me, TBH!
A couple of things to get out of the way:
If I do not hear back in 48 hours, I will choose another winner.
Once I hear from the winner, I will post as soon as possible - within the same week, depending on when I get nip out to the PO.
If the post office tells me I cannot ship something among these, I will have to replace them with other makeup products.
International postal systems are now cautious, so there could be delays of eight weeks or more since each postal system and customs tends to examine everything multiple times. Also, as I found out last time, there WILL be delays if there's inclement weather, tsunamis, or any kind of incident as well.
Your prize will be sent either tracked/recorded/signed-for, with proof of postage.
I am not responsible for duties, surcharges and other taxes or if the product is damaged, delayed or lost in the post. All I can do is offer my sympathy and commiserations.
If the prize is lost in the post, I'll be sad and can give you the proof of postage and tracking details, but that is all.
