My giveaway was posted on January 12 and about a week later USPS announced a price increase in their shipping rates. It's not fair for the winner to pay for the new USPS shipping rate, since my giveaway post had the old shipping rate. So, I will cover the difference out of my own pocket. =)
I also noticed that a lot less people entered this time around compared to my previous giveaways. I know that the shipping rate was a huge turnoff for alot of people. However, it seems like USPS has no intention of lowering their shipping rates and instead, they seem to be increasing them every so often. =(
The entire prize list of my last giveaway valued at $273 and 15 items valued up to $118, so even though the winner has to pay for the shipping cost, I still think it was worth it to enter the giveaway. However, I'm not sure if I should continue to do these giveaways or just sell the makeup products. Please let me know how you all feel about this and I would love to hear your suggestions.
Anyways, the winner of my last giveaway is Holly Ann@Make Me Shimmer & Glitter. Congratulations, my dear! Please email me your shipping address and 15 items that you want from the prize list. I plan on shipping your package tomorrow or within 24 hours of hearing back from you. ^_^
