t’s been a thrilling few weeks for us here at Styleite, watching the veritable deluge of photos pour into Style Sheets as submissions to win our Guerlain Giveaway. There’s one more chance to enter, so be sure to throw your hat into the ring for the last drawing!
With the help of our best friend Rachel Zoe, we’re giving away a lipstick made of rubies, a foundation that has gold in it, and a perfume with a pedigree better than most members of the French nobility. Wanna know how you can win these glorious goodies from Guerlain? Find out how after the jump.
Sometimes we wished we didn’t work here so we would be eligible to win the cool things we get to give away. Luckily for those of you who don’t share an office with us, there’s still a chance to win $485 of Guerlain beauty products!
With tweets, posts, and news of fashion week already pouring in, we here at Styleite are drowning in anticipation of the upcoming shows.
