i would like to be part of your giveaway :]

hmm i would like to hear more about bb cream (anybrand since there are so many) and etude house =]

Unknown said...

Wow this is a cute giveaway :D
I like reviews on newly released products most, especially pore-refining and oil-control skincare.
It's also nice when attention's paid to the packaging heehee, I'm a sucker for cute cosmetics (i.e. Majolica).

Happy 1st Birthday!

cleung341 said...

Thanks for the giveaway!
Love your reviews on Japanese cosmetics, but I would love to see more reviews on skincare products.
Good luck everyone!

IchigoBunnie said...

yay! thank you for the giveaway!

right now im really into skincare, trying to make my skin clear and soft and supple as possible, so seeing more skincare (and ingredients list posted as well cuz im allergic to sulfates T.T...seeing ingredients is VERY important to me). I dunno if u noticed an influx of page viewing but ive been reading up on ur sheet masks and other skincare posts that you put. (i actually just bought that black sheet mask because of you! lol) And is that ok if the reviews are a bit more in depth? i'd greatly appreciate that!

so yea, skincare is big for me, but i do love seeing japanese makeup as well to see the swatches and colors to help guide me to the colors i like.

thank youu!!

I'd love to see more reviews about Japanese skincare products. I've been eyeing on Juju for a while but there's still little reviews about their products out there...

Anonymous said...

Happy birthday, Lotus Palace!!

I remember when I first stumbled across your page from MUA, and that was when you first created your blog! :) You have gone a long way, thank you for all the helpful reviews, Kathi! Bravo!

I want to join in the contest!

Here's my entry:
I like department brands like Shiseido Maquillage, Kose, Kanebo, Paul & Joe, and Jill Stuart and Lunasol. I like reading about high-end lines cos the quality of their products are exceptional and I want what I can't have. :P

anna said...

I love DHC so I must buy that even if I won't win:D haha!
I'd like to read more about skincare, especially Japanese. Also everything cute is always nice to read and watch.^_^

sindylicious said...

Cute prize :)

Happy 1st bday!!
I love to see your hauls + reviews cause it kinda introduces me to some new products that I might want to try out.

Sofie said...

I am really interested in Lunasol and Jill Stuart which is expensive brands T-T so I know if it is worth it~ Also I am a nailpolish addict~ So I am very interested in any kinds of nailpolishes~ Also skinfood skincare haha~

Happy 2st birthday dear!

Helly said...

a giveaway!!

I'd love to see more posts on lunasol or maybe makeup tutorials? your eyes always look so pretty and colourful, but soft and not over the top =)

Samantha said...

Hi there, would love to be part of your giveaway! Would like to see more reviews on more bb creams, especially skin79's! Also, more on skinfood products! Thank you =]

Vanessa said...

Oh wow I love this set!
I like your reviews on japanese products since the only way to get them is thru online for most of us and hence no way to try them before dropping $$$. I'm especially interested in the drugstore brands like Kiss Me and Majolica which are affordable and have some major HG stuff!

Thanks youuuu

Tracy said...

I like reviews, especially on skincare as there are so many brands and products in the market, plus there is always a new range/item. I know everyone have different skin type and concerns hence it will be lovely to update us with skincare that are interesting or new despite not buying or using it.
And lastly, I think you got really nice lips, do you have any special tips for mantaining them?
Most importantly, Happy 1st Birthday!

Rita said...

i would love to make part of this giveway.
i'm already a follower for some time.
and i love your reviews about japanese/korean produts. it introduce me to new ones and other that i really want to try out.

Tam said...

Congrats on your first anniversary, and thanks for the giveaway ^ ^
For me it's skincare and skincare extras! Just because, like you, I have pretty sensitive skin and if you approve of a product, I feel more confident about buying it, since I dont live in Asia and have to buy online!

Lisa said...

Aw this is a cute giveaway.

I would really like to see more reviews on skincare, more specifically sheet masks or any mask in general that would really help with pores and redness. I also love more reviews on Asian eyeshadow palettes as I am getting really into those. :)

Anonymous said...

And I also like reviews on eyeshadow palettes... :)

lord voldemort said...

omg! i'd totally love to be in ur giveaway~ i like posts about bb creams, beauty products, and well.. makeup!! =) but preferably things we can access in the usa lol

Unknown said...

My first time to comment here! I've found your site a month ago and have been searching through your old post...

I think one topic I love the most is Whitening treatment. Not that I believe in it, but I really want to hear from people who've actually tried it and see results under different lighting! Since I've only had one and I don't know. One brand I'm interested most is T'estimo because, well, it's gone! I don't even have the time to get to know it and it's like poof! I've searched and seems like it has got some great reviews and I don't understand it! LOL

bunee said...

happy one year !

skincare ! cuz no make up in this world would look flawless unless you got some great skin underneath ! and DHC . not cuz its the giveaway prize but ive been hearing nothing but goodness from this brand, from cleansing oil to foundation !

throuthehaze said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I am interested in skincare product reviews!

pretty-big-eyes said...

Ah, Tokyo girls collection!!

Dessert Queen said...

Happy blog Birthday!

I love the Japanese and Korean makeup reviews! I'm most interested in Etude House, Lavshuca, Jill Stuart, Maquillage, Kate and Majolica Majorca!

Chickadee said...

[hazel] said...

Hi! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! So cute! This is a sweet giveaway!

I would like more reviews on skincare products!

Thanks for the giveway!


annalene said...

i actually love seeing the occassional non-beauty related post (cute accessories, goods, etc.), i think its fun to switch things up a bit, though i do love the beauty related content as well. i also prefer the higher end/easier to find products.

thank you for the cute giveaways as well! :)

Anonymous said...

Lurking around for bb creams!! i always read your reviews before laying my hands on them. Hehe.. and not to forget etube house~!

moohoot said...

I love reading all your Etude House comments and reviews!(espeically the entire Peach collections you've hauled) It gave me a great idea on what I should buy (minus the trial and error stage)and what not to buy.

I've subscribed to your blog so will be receiving most up to date keep up the fantastic reviews!


dazzlingtots said...

definitely more japanese and korean cosmetics!! but since i am more into skincare now, i hope there are more skincare product reviews too:)

They Say Fairytales Could Never Exist In Real Life said...

I would like to see a fairshare of skin care and makeup that is at an afforable price. Totally pocket savvy to my pocket in this financial crunch.

Thank u for free giveaway

NiNi said...

Guten tag Kathi!
I'm most likely interested in mid-high end price range Korean brands such as Banila Co, Enprani, Feverlet, Cathy Cat, Clio, and etc. As for Japanese brands, I am more into the natural skin care side with brands such as FANCL and HABA. Make up wise, RMK and Jill Stuart.
*Sorry for the long list of brands. >.<*

cibicco said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I enjoy your Etsy hauls, especially those related to bath and beauty. I love handmade soaps.

I'd love to see more base makeup reviews (foundations, bb creams, primers). I love that you have a lot of info on korean brands, because lots of bloggers use japanese products, but not as many use korean. Keep up the great work!
