My First Giveaway! :D

*This giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much for your participations. The winner will be announced soon!*

Happy new years, everybody!

I would like to host a giveaway. My very first one!
My giveaway is nothing grand, just small favorites of mine that I want to share with you. ;)

I am very grateful for I have met so many kind-hearted (not to mention gorgeous!) friends through this blog, and I am hoping to continue to do so. :)


EOTD, Review, FOTD - L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Golden Sage

This is another EOTD posting for L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows.
Hope you guys are not tired of them, yet! (cause I have two more...;p)

Today's shade is Golden Sage.

EOTD, Review, FOTD - L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Midnight Blue

Here is another EOTD of L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow.
Today I am wearing Midnight Blue.

EOTD, Review - L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Sultry Smoke

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! :)

I want to do EOTDs and FOTDs (if possible) using my recently purchased L'Oreal Infallible shadows.
I am planning to use just single shade with eyeliner and mascara, so it would be like swatching on eyelids.

(Yes, I am recycling my pics. ;) )


Haul, Swatch - L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow & Colour Riche Balm SPF 15

I secretly hoped that I would find these highly anticipated Infallible eye shadows before the new year, so imagine how happy I am today to finally find them! :D (another "squeee" moment)
I also saw a display of L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm but I grabbed only one color being a good girl. :)

I wanted to quickly show these to you and share my initial thoughts and swatches. ^-^

Review, Swatch - Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

Lazy Sunday afternoon is perfect for playing with your new lippies. :)
I've had a headache all day so I ditched my usual Sunday rehearsal and swatched my new Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters instead.


Swatch, FOTD - Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Raspberry Bite

Today, I wore Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Raspberry Bite (745).
This is the most stunning red shade in my book, and the lipstick itself is so creamy and has excellent color payoff.


Review, Rant - DueBa Dreamy.i Hazel

Ok, this is probably the worst looking and feeling contact lenses I have ever had. -_-+++

As many of you know, I wasn't very happy with this Dreamy.i model even in Grey color (which is actually so much better looking than this Hazel) as well as the online store called lensvillage.com who sold these to me.
It seems that this company has grown quite big by blog-marketing and they are able to offer nice discount price and big sales.
However, at this point I am not so sure if these Dreamy.i lenses are even legit because the Grey color ones felt thick and quite uncomfortable unlike the other design from DueBa brand ( Kira Kira Pink ), and today I found out my Hazel color ones are defective!

Maybe I should have known. 
It looked a little crooked even from the vial.

Haul - Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter (Squeee!!!)

Seriously, as a self-claimed beauty blogger, I have been feeling ashamed about not being able to find any of these much-talked-about Revlon Lip Butters. ; /
I finally found a display at my local drug store (meaning a rite-aid store on the first floor of my apartment building) and literally did a happy dance.
(Yes, people looked. -_-;;;)

I got 6 of them. I ended up paying only for about $5 each since Revlon cosmetics are on sale and I had a coupon. ;)

(in no particular order)
Gumdrop, Raspberry Pie, Cotton Candy, Pink Truffle, Sweet Tart, Cherry Tart


Small Haul and Review - eos

I am telling you..twitting is another way of shopping disguised. *sighs*
Obviously I am not in the need of getting more lip balm or lotion but I had to order some from eos as soon as I saw the 20% off code on Twitter.
(note to myself - DO NOT follow beauty/fashion brands)

So here they are..
I got a value lip balm set, hand lotion and hand & body lotion.


Review - Skinfood Olive Mask

This was the first item I tried from Tiffany's giveaway package.
I don't have dry skin but lately I have been experiencing some dry patches on my cheeks due to the change of weather.

This whole thing looks quite edible with spoon and everything..


NOTD - Essie Little Brown Dress

This very dark chocolate/espresso color with glossy creme finish came out as part of Essie fall 2010 collection.
It is a little streaky to apply but the finish is pretty even after 2 coats. 
In the picutre, I am wearing this with Duri base coat & Revlon Top speed top coat.

I wouldn't say Little Brown Dress is my go-to dark shade, but this is rather special because it still looks brown indoors as dark as it may be. ;)
(Don't you hate it when your pretty vampy shades reveal their true identities only under sunlight?)


Swatch, Review - stila Sunrise set (beauty.com holiday exclusive)

This is supposedly a beauty.com exclusive and it was only $25 for the set during the cyber week sale.
Now I see the price went up to $35, but 4 full size eyeshadow pans, an aluminum case, a smudge stick liner and a multi-use makeup brush for that price is still pretty nice. :)
(I also ordered a Nars blush with this and got $10 off with code, so it was a great bargain which is better than the recent stila warehouse sale.)

There are 2 different sets (Sunrise and Moonrise) available. I wanted a warm brown colors that would replace my Maybelline Natural Smokes quad, and Sunrise seemed perfect for that.
