Makeup Stash! Lunar New Year 2011 Giveaways

Hop into this hare-ppy rabbit year with the Makeup Stash! Lunar New Year 2011 giveaways!

I’m currently using most of these products and enjoy them, so I’m excited that I’m able to share them with you too, thanks to the generosity of the brands involved.

Stand a chance to win:

1. Bioré Hydra-Clear


Bioré Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets

Hydra-Clear impressed me with how cleanly it removes makeup (it leaves no oily residue), while the cleansing sheets are a staple in my kit, thanks to their swift and easy makeup removal abilities.

2. Bioré Makeup Remover for Eye and Lip


Bioré Oil Cleansing Cotton Facial Sheets

This eye/lip makeup remover is a cleanser specifically for the delicate areas of the face. Like the Hydra-Clear, it is also paired with the cleansing sheets for this giveaway. :)

3. Cure Natural Aqua Gel

An award-winning exfoliant, this gentle cleanser is a consistent favourite with many women.

4. Dr Jart Acne-X Spot Cover Anti-Bacterial Concealer

According to the brand, this lightweight concealer not only covers up blemishes naturally, it also calms the skin with its acne-friendly formula which contains acne-combating salicylic acid and sebum-controlling ingredients.

5. Gransenbon Gran Brush Blush in 01 Lady Rose

A favourite of mine, this rose pink powder blush adds a touch of sophistication to your face makeup.

6 & 7. Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara and Heroine Make Mascara Remover Set

I love the lengthening and budge-proof mascara (its inkiness adds a nice darkness to the lashes too), plus it’s nice to have a portable remover that takes it off.

Two sets up for grabs!

8. K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting 24h Eyebrow in 01

My favourite brow liner, this indelible yet easy-to-apply product has since become a staple for me. I love how natural it makes my brows look.

9 & 10. Mandom Cleansing Express Sebum Cleansing Lotion (full-sized)


Mandom Cleansing Express Eye Makeup Remover (deluxe-sized)

This duo is perfect for people who want a gentle makeup remover, yet require something a little more for their water-resistant eye makeup products.

Two sets up for grabs!

11 & 12. Nature Republic Advanced Cell Boosting Travel Kit comprising Toner, Fluid, Day Cream and Night Cream

Formulated with orchid callus stem cell extract and medicinal mushrooms, this anti-ageing skincare range promises to revitalise and nourish skin, while keeping wrinkles at bay.

Two sets up for grabs!

13 & 14. Nature Republic Collagen Dream Travel Kit comprising Skin Booster 80, Emulsion 70, Essence 70 and Cream 70

Nature Republic’s best-selling skincare range, Collagen Dream contains concentrated marine collagen and acai berry to nourish and protect the skin. Its special formula promises to keep skin radiant, while providing moisture to stem dehydration.

Two sets up for grabs!

15. Paul Frank Lip Smackers and Julius Topper

These popular lip balms adorned with cute Paul Frank images bring a smile to the face!

16. Skin79 Absolute Total BB Cream (deluxe-sized)


Skin79 Diamond Collection The Prestige BB Cream (deluxe-sized)

Skin79 has a good range of BB creams. I like that they colour-adjust and do not leave my face looking ashy. Multi-functional and with good SPF and PA values, this duo – also know as Skin79 Petite Princesses – is a good way to try this popular BB cream brand.  

17. SmoothE Gold Advanced Skin Recovery Cream

According to the brand, this moisturising anti-ageing cream is enriched with multi-vitamins to keep facial skin soft and supple. It also contains marine collagen and elastin complex to combat free radicals, preventing wrinkles and minimising the appearance of age lines.

18. Tofu Love Professional Makeup Sponge

The resilience and bounce of these washable sponges make them good foundation accessories. The heart shape is not only cute, it is also functional – the angled tips of the halves reach into corners easily.

19 & 20. Tickets to Robin Niu Er’s Kosé Beauty Talkshow in February 2011!

牛爾老師’s last Beauty Talkshow was such a success that he’s back in Singapore in less than half a year. Not surprisingly, considering how entertaining and highly-informative his beauty sessions are. :)

Two pairs up for grabs!

  • A.Bosch says:

    Hi Mag,

    I follow your site on Google Friend Connect, and my nick is Anonymous Bosch.

    I’d dearly like to see more brands take a cue from M.A.C.’s Peacocky collection and release a few teal shades! Teal is one of my favourite colours and, despite being such a bright and ‘adventurous’ colour, I’ve nary seen it look unflattering on anyone!

    On that vein, I was hoping for companies to release more colour-correct/anti-redness makeup bases too, simply because I need them and love em’ to bits.

    Thanks again for the giveaway and here’s hoping you and your family have a great new year. :)

    Sorry, I am re-posting because I had a typo error for my twitter account username in my previous entry.

    Twitter : destinyx88 (should be this instead)

    Sorry for any inconvenience caused :)

    Hi Dear,

    Thanks for sharing all the precious updates with us always on your website.

    1. Followed via Google Friend Connect.

    2. Tell me what you’d like to see this year in terms of beauty products!

    I’ll like to see a review on any latest make up range – like an overall introduction of each Brand’s Base, Concealer, Eyeshadows, Eyeliner etc.

    Sometimes, we mix make ups and our make up pouch contains all brands of make up because we hear from people that this brand’s Eyeliner or that brand’s blusher or XXX brand’s lipstick is superb.

    We simply purchase them and mix all sort of make up ranges and apply them to our face. But in fact, sometimes using the same range of make up released by the same brand could be good too – in terms of achieving better overall finished look.

    Sorry if this sounds weird, because we always do some testing and research before going out there to buy our make up, but I like the idea of having a set of make ups under the same brand name for convenient purpose :D

    I’ll also love to see Face masks or night masks recommendations.

    I am currently thinking whether to get Tony Moly’s sleeping pack or Laneige’s :)

    Dear Mag,

    Happy Lunar New Year to your family and you!

    May your family and you be blessed with Good Health, Happiness and Laughter in 2011!

    I am definitely looking forward to the hope of having Jill Stuart and Burberry Makeup in Singapore. I also want more of the Japanese Makeup which are not in Singapore yet! For example, brands like Shiseido’s Intergrate and ff makeup, and ma cherie hair products!

    I also want 小凯老师 to come to Singapore to give a beauty talk. He is my favourite celebrity makeup artist! I really wish to meet him in person! (sorry if i sound like a fan here :P but I feel that hes really nice and talented too just like 牛尔老师!)

    Cheers to more makeup brands!

    Hi Mag,

    Happy Lunar New Year to you!

    I would like to see more variety brands of cosmetic & skincare, in the form of miniature or sample size! I went to some shops and usually for miniature or sample size cosmetics are very limited (in terms of brands & types). I thought this would be good for us to try before buying the actual product, and these miniatures are compact to carry around too!
