2 Yr Blog-aversary Giveaway: $50 to

by Ashley on July 20, 2009

I’m excited that this week marks two years of dramatis personae. It’s amazing to me that it has already been so long, and I’m constantly amazed by the role it has in my life.

One of those fortunate things is the opportunity to work with amazing companies to provide treats & goodies to you all– because I would have given up blogging long ago if I hadn’t met so many incredible ladies & gents.

I’m really excited to work Beauty Ticket for this giveaway– Beauty Ticket’s an amazing site that sells high end & designer cosmetic at knock-out prices.  I became instantly smitten when I saw my beloved Stila cosmetics for 1/3 of what I’d pay at Sephora.  To be honest, I kind of wish I could win the gift card.


To celebrate dramatis personae style and take advantage of $50 gift certificate all you have to do to enter is answer this question in the comments:

Which AMAZING make-up brand do you wish they carried, but currently aren’t?

If I were the winner, I’d pick up…
♥ Smashbox Function 5 Self-Adjusting Powder Foundation (for when I get the oilies at work)
♥ Smashbox Wicked Lovely Blush in Charm
♥ Yves St. Laurent Everlong Mascara in Violet (unusual & spectacular for all eyes!)
♥ Smashbox Eyelash Curler
♥ Pixi Lip Booster in Pixie (yummy, vibrant, cherry red!)

If you’re a sneaky pants like me, and can’t wait to shop, or win & want to score yourself an extra $5 for shopping, use the discount code below!


You can leave comments until Friday, July 24th, and the winner will be announced on August 1st! Please make sure to leave your email address in the comments, cher, so I can get in touch with you when you win!

I wish so much that beauty ticket offered Benefit! I’ve always wanted to try their products but I can’t justify just buying it online.. I definitely would if it was discounted though!

Eyeliah July 26, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I’m too late to enter but congrats on the 2 years!

I really wish they carried Tarte cosmetics. I love this brand for both its quality and its eco-friendliness.

Erin Walsh July 24, 2009 at 2:50 pm

I would love if they carried the “John Masters” natural skin care line.

tammigirl July 24, 2009 at 1:35 pm

I wish they had kerastase. It was the best stuff I ever used for my hair, but I have a really difficult time finding it.

Which AMAZING make-up brand do you wish they carried, but currently aren’t?

I’d like for them to carry Clinique! :D

Valerie July 24, 2009 at 10:35 am

I wish they carried MAC. There are many discontinued products that I wish I could find…..Bobbi Brown too. Thanks!

Sherry B. July 24, 2009 at 10:28 am

My vote goes to Urban Decay.

Mariam July 24, 2009 at 9:11 am

I would definitely love if they carried Armani. I live for the foundation, it’s the best. Goes on smooth with little effort and gives a radiant glow. Can’t live without it!

Lauren July 24, 2009 at 5:55 am

Which AMAZING make-up brand do you wish they carried, but currently aren’t?

I remember when I was little, loving a very particular rather lurid shade of cheap pink lipstick. Despite all my efforts, I have never been able to find the name, or encounter a colour anywhere close. I wish they stocked that, as it would be the end of a long search for me!

I wish they carried NATIO products.

Anne July 23, 2009 at 7:17 pm

Happy Anniversary, Dramatis Personae! I wish they carried Philosophy skincare and fragrance products.

Jenna July 23, 2009 at 2:18 pm

I wish Sephora carried MAC. I love their products.

Emily July 22, 2009 at 8:45 am

Congratulations on your blogoversary! 2 Years- what a big deal! And what a great contest! I wish they carried the Urban Decay stuff too, their colors are so bold- they’re not for every day, but for now and again, you need something smashing! -e

Susan July 22, 2009 at 1:08 am

I wish they would carry Make-Up Forever

adrian July 21, 2009 at 10:48 pm

It might be nice if they carried Verona Organics.

Elaine R July 21, 2009 at 10:40 pm

I’d love to see them start carrying MAC products.

Jess July 21, 2009 at 1:39 pm

Oh, I’m going to add my vote to Urban Decay – such amazing colors and the primer potion is to DIE for!

Great blog, will be coming back for more :)

Zara July 21, 2009 at 5:12 am

I wish they carried Tarte. I can’t live without my Tarte Lock & Roll shadow duos! Thanks for this most generous giveaway and congratulations
on your 2 yr. blog-aversary!

Sheena July 21, 2009 at 12:20 am

This is an amazing giveaway! I’d look forward to trying Nina Ricci products since I don’t think I’ve ever been to a store that sold them.

For what I wish they had currently: I wish they had Benefit products since it’s what I wear the most. I hope they will add them soon.

Michelle July 20, 2009 at 9:33 pm

Ohh I would also have to go with Urban Decay!! I had forgotten the name of this site, thanks for the refresh dear :) And congrats on the blogaversary!

peach July 20, 2009 at 9:25 pm

sort of a weird request, but i would love to see the “green” brands ecco bella and zuzu luxe carried on beauty ticket! i use conventional brands as well (dior & shiseido) but ecco bella and zuzu luxe make great, affordable and safe/vegan cosmetics that are always a staple in my makeup box!

Beka July 20, 2009 at 7:02 pm

Urban Decay, NARS…maybe even Yes To Carrots.
Great giveway, by the way! Congratulations on your 2 Yr Blog-aversary!

Joanna July 20, 2009 at 7:18 pm

Ooooooh giveawayyyyy!!! i want to win, i want to win!!!!!!!

I wish they carried Trish McEvoy. Ooh, or Bobbi Brown! Or NARS! Do they have Nars?? BUT I do love all the brands they already have!!!!


Shay July 20, 2009 at 4:37 pm

Urban Decay would be a good one, love their intense eyeshadows that don’t wreak havoc on my contact lenses,

amber July 20, 2009 at 4:06 pm

Oh wow, their prices are awesome!! $50 could score someone a lot of great beauty swag. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway!

I would love to see them sell MAC, Benefit, Philosophy, and Bobbi Brown in the future.

dreamsequins July 20, 2009 at 3:19 pm

This is the best giveaway ever. Can you enter me? dreamsequins (at)! I would love to see Fresh products, especially their lipsticks and lipglosses on Beauty Ticket. Wow. Just went over to the site. It’s muy inexpensive! I’m totally shopping there from now on.

Jaka Merriman July 20, 2009 at 2:13 pm

As strange as it sounds, I’d like to see LimeCrime eyeshadows here. It’s an indie brand at the moment, but it would expand Beauty Ticket’s customer base and definitely brighten up their pages! As it is, though, I’ll still be very happy with the much-cheaper prices on Smashbox everything. :3

Birdie July 20, 2009 at 2:10 pm

Youngblood mineral/rice powders – the rice dust stuff doesn’t clog pores like talc does. Not enough places carry the stuff.

Congrats on 2 years! That’s an amazing accomplishment.

I’m cliche and am going to beg for NARS too–they’ve got this great fat lip crayon that doubles as a perfect eyebrow pencil (as my hair and lips often match ;). Also, I wish for some love from Urban Decay–another brand with brilliant colors and lots of vegan products for my friends who don’t do the baconpunk thing. :D

Congrats on your blog-berfday! <3

Deanna July 20, 2009 at 1:47 pm

I wish they carried NARS! Love NARS :)

kkkkatie July 20, 2009 at 12:33 pm

i wish they carried benefit. i have always wanted to try their benetint cheek stain.

Danielle L July 20, 2009 at 12:22 pm

I think it would be great if they carried Nars brand products!

Lorena Cupcake July 20, 2009 at 11:13 am

I very much wished they carried Nars. I love the sleek black packaging and they make one of the few lipstick shades that flatters my mixed-race coloring.

Andrea July 20, 2009 at 10:28 am

I would love to see them carry Nars Orgasm Blush and Lipgloss-they are my faves and match any skin tone. Happy 2 year anniversary!

Lauren July 20, 2009 at 9:39 am

Decleor products rock my sock, sephora used to have them but stopped. On top of that I would rather see them at a discounted price!

Jennine July 20, 2009 at 7:41 am

wow, what an awesome giveaway! you can get a lot on beauty ticket for $50…
