*Maquillage Color on Climax Rouge in BE394

*Maquillage Mascara Combing Glamour in BK999 (one of my fave mascaras!)
*Kanebo Kracie Tabinoyado Shirahama Bath Salt (great stuff!)

Giveaway #2:

*Enprani White Shine Foam Cleanser 50ml (sealed tube)

*Etude House Aqua Sherbet Skin Care Mini Kit (toner and lotion, 25ml/each)

*Etude House Mascara Remover One Shot Clean 25ml

*Lotree Aurora Eye Dream Shine Base (sealed tube)

*Elisha Coy Always Nuddy BB 15ml (sealed tube)
*Elisha Coy Milk Cacao Black sugar Scrub 25g jar

*VOV Castledew Carat Lips in M101

--VOV Daily Fresh Strawberry Yogurt
--Medicare Aloe Treatment Mask

--3 Etude House Masks (Collagen, Pomegranate, Moistfull)
--Tony Moly Kiwi Yogurt Sheet Mask
--Skin Food Cucumber Soothing Mask Sheet

All you have to do is:

-leave a comment below telling me Happy Birthday or whatever you want to tell me =P (lol)
-include your first name and first letter of your last name (e.g. I would be Kathi M.) or your screenname is enough if you're registered
-1 comment will qualify you for all 3 giveaways so theoretically you can win all 3 prizes!

-Winners will be randomly selected through (I will do 3 randoms, first for the Japanese lot, 2nd for the Korean lot, 3rd for the Sheet Mask lot)

-Contest ends on Friday, December 26 at 8 AM (my time, that's GMT+1). The 3 winners will be anounced in a new post
-Please leave only one comment

-Winners must send me their address to within 48 hrs after the end of the contest or the next on the list will be selected.

-Of course I will ship worldwide (by airmail) so everyone is invited to participate!
-I will ship the prizes on Monday, December 29

Thanks for taking the time to put up all the reviews and for being so patient with me and my Gmarket trauma. (by the way it still hasn't been resolved; I gave up and got a Korean friend to help order instead. Lucky girl - you seem to be the only one who hasn't had trouble with them so far!)

Stay happy, healthy and adorable <33
