Etude House Giveaway!

It's been quite some time since my last giveaway!
However now you have the chance to win 2 very nice products from Etude House:

-Sleeping Facial Pack Brightening:

Get bright and vitalized skin while you sleep. Special 10 hour sleep efficiency formula.
Full-sized sealed 120ml tube.
Apply at night as last step of your skincare, rinse off in the morning. Doesn't really feel sticky so it's easy to sleep with this on.

-1 box (3 pieces) of Magic Soothing Mask Sheets

My rules:

-Only followers can qualify. Please follow my blog (just scroll down a bit and you'll see the "Followers" on the right side.)

-You also have to leave a comment to qualify. If you're a follower AND leave a comment (only 1 per person, please) you will qualify for the contest. (I took those rules from dear Yumeko from Bittenbefore...I think that's pretty cool lol!)

-Please tell me in your comment how/where you found out about my site.

-I will post the winner here on my blog. The winner should please contact me within 2 days telling me her address or next on the list will get the prize.

-I will use to chose the winner!

-The prize will be sent by airmail within 2 business days after the winner contacts me. Giveaway is open to readers everywhere in the world! Please let me know when you receive your package!

-A few people who won in previous contest and didn't bother to ever contact me about receiving their prize cannot take part! Thanks for understanding but it really annoys me when I do a giveaway and never get any reply about the items arriving safely.

-Contest will close on Saturday, March 28 at 6 PM (my time)

-Thanks and Good Luck!

Hi Kathi, I've been reading your blog for close to half a year now ...

I found it through links on the sidebar on Connie's blog ( Since many of the Japanese makeup you try is available in Singapore, I really enjoy the reviews you do as I can find them in the malls here.



P.S. I just signed up on the feed. :)

Good day there

I fell in love with Korean skincare and their makeup product a year ago. That is the reason I hook up to search for more reviews, pictures and swatches on-line. I went thru lines and line in Google and I bummed into your blog.

Now I converted myself to be one of your silent readers+fans of your beauty blog. I admire your makeup palace very much hahah, which inspires me a lot with how I should do with my makeup and what I should purchase for my makeup and stuff etc....

Thanks once again for your informative beauty sharing blog.

Have a great day ahead!

With Love

irukablue said...

Thanks for having such a comprehensive blog! I came across it whilst searching for reviews on BB Creams and another blog posted a link to yours as having the most authoritative reviews on Asian cosmetics.

Its great to know that i can finally look for English reviews of Asian brands that are hard to locate elsewhere (^_^)v

Pooja said...

Ah i got here from dear Yume-chan's blog =) btw,the integrate eye palette is so cute! etudehouse from where i'm from is pretty limited with their stuff -__-

Hi,I found links to your blog, when I was searching for reviews on Jill Stuart, Etude house items :) I think some links were from another blogger Rouge Deluxe from Singapore.
Your blog is ♥FANTASTIC♥. Definately better (even more detailed, informative, up to date) reviews than any fashion magazine I have come across!
Plus, it seems we have the same taste in cosmetics and skincare (Korean and Japanese brands) so you will be seeing me here very often. In fact, i check your blog eagerly everyday!
But, sadly for me, Singapore do not carry most of these lovely brands that i love, and I only get some of them when my friends travel overseas.
Please continue to write and post more pictures of your made up look cause i think you have great makeup skills, or you are a really pretty lady with great facial features to begin with :p You really can creatively make most of your purchased eyeshadow products work for you. I think i will have lots to learn in terms of my application skills. I just do not do much justice to my eyeshadow palettes... So if you have the time, will truly appreciate it if you can post up a step by step mini tutorial on eyeshadow application, about how you achieve your lovely eye makeup looks!
I love giveaways, but only if its products from brands i love! Thou I'm not too sure how to join this giveaway correctly, (I sure hope i have!) but I have and will follow this blog faithfully. LOVE this blog. Keep up the good work!
