Makeup Stash! Lunar New Year 2011 Giveaways

February 2, 2011

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!

    Happy CNY! 新年快乐!

    I hope to see:
    1) More foundation shades in existing ranges – Was very happy to see MAC start releasing shades like NC18 (though not in SG) and hope other brands with awesome formulas will start filling in their shades too!

    2) Pricing gap between US$ and S$ prices close – especially for brands like Urban Decay and Make Up For Ever!

    3) More mousse foundations!

    I wish to see more affordable foundations for oily, acne-prone skin. Having just a Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation in drugstores isn’t enough. The rest are not that great for oily, acne skin and others are too expensive.

    Hey there,

    Personally I feel that maybe u can include more places which has upcoming sales if possible such as the body shop sale at plaza singapura , etc ( because i always miss them/ or get there too late and most of the products are already sold out ).

    Also, maybe u can review more on the cheaper brands of makeup (cos i am a student now still ). Most of the better makeup and skincare products are quite expensive. And maybe u can also include makeup suitable for different skintype and how to handle them individually? Such as oily skin, dry skin etc. But overall i find your blog very user friendly and helpful ! And i like the way u encourage readers to give u feedback.

    Looking forward to more of your beauty posts !
    Happy chinese new year.
