Makeup Stash! Christmas 2011 Giveaways

This has been a good year for me – not only have I been blessed with a beautiful baby, I’ve also had the opportunity to review a slew of lovely beauty products and work with stellar brands that respect and value my writing.

To celebrate this great year and as thanks for your support (especially in the form of the kind words you’ve said to me on my blog or privately), I’d like to share these products with you. And honestly, I don’t believe in sitting in my review tower enjoying these beauty goodies; I want you to try them too!

I’ve reviewed almost all of the products in this giveaway and hope you like them as much as I do. Special thanks to the brands that have made this possible with their generous contributions!

From Anna Sui Singapore:

Anna Sui Beauty Mirror

(1 piece worth S$42)

A foldable mirror with a stained glass design. The rainbow hues are so pretty.

Anna Sui Bath Set

(1 set worth S$62)

A whimsical beauty ornament with scented bath beads. A slipper for a subversive Cinderella?

Anna Sui Queen of the Night Eye Colour Palette & Lip Gloss Set

(1 set worth S$90)

A kit with eye and lip essentials. I like the harlequin print of the pouch!

From Clarins Singapore:

Clarins Christmas Must-Haves:

Eye Quartet Mineral Palette + Blush Prodige + Rouge Prodige (5 sets worth S$159 each)

I’m so glad I discovered Clarins makeup – not only do the products apply beautifully, they also smell wonderful. Your visage will love these three items! I highly recommend the pampering Clarins Skin Time too.

From Estée Lauder Singapore:

Estée Lauder Pure Color Sensuous Rouge Lip Colors

(3 lipsticks, each worth S$42)

Their smooth and velvety texture makes these lipsticks easy to wear. The classy packaging is a draw too.

Estée Lauder Pure Color Five Color EyeShadow Palette

(2 palettes, each worth S$80)

Five colours in varying finishes to mix, match and play with. I like how they blend nicely into one another.

From Lancôme Singapore:

Lancôme Ombre Absolue Impact 3D Eyeshadow Palette in G10 Étoile du Soir

(2 palettes, each worth S$90)

I love this palette for its smokey tones and varying shimmer levels. A must-have for smokey-eye lovers!

From Maquillage Singapore:

Maquillage Essence Glamorous Rouge

(2 tubes, each worth S$43)

The top-selling lip product in the Maquillage range, these glossy lip lovelies keep the lips soft, plump and lush. I like their shine and ‘bouncy’ feel!

From RMK Singapore:

RMK Nail Color EX

(5 bottles, each worth S$25)

The shades of these polishes are not only apt for Christmas, they last well and will see you through this holiday season.

From Shiseido Singapore:

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colors

(3 pots, each worth S$32)

Smooth cream shadows that can be layered without caking? That’s what these are!

  • Ariel says:

    The most memorable gift I’ve ever received is the Panasonic system camera, GF1, from my husband 1 year ago for my birthday!

    I was just telling him casually that I want a good camera, and then one fine day, he suddenly called to tell me he’d gotten GF1 for me. At that point of time, I was still thinking that it’s such a waste of money because it’s so expensive! But now, I love the camera so much that I’m bringing it everywhere I go, heh! And it gave me a chance to capture the beautiful moments in my life. :)

    i have shared the link of this giveaway and the EL lipsticks on my fb :) i am following you on fb. my fb name is Adeline Tan S.L.

    The most memorable gift i received was a simple dress from my mumm for xmas last yr. althou it cost jus abt 30 bucks but it meant a lot to me because ever since i bcame a Christian about 3 years ago, it was the first time a family member took her own initiative to “celebrate ” xmas with me. To me it was a act which showed that my mum accepted my faith. also she spent xmas w me in church last yr. i was so blessed :)

    thanks mag for the giveaway ! have a wonderful xmas <3

    3. the most memorable gift I’ve received is a walkman from my mum many years ago. As I had to take public transport to and from school everyday and the journey was around an hour so Mummy chose this gift to keep me company during my bus ride home so that I won’t doze off and miss the bus stop. I was very thrilled and touched by the gift. Although its not functioning now and it’s big and bulky. I still have it with me :)

    The most memorable gift I have ever received was from a BFF.
    I had a bad habit of chewing my lips and had no idea how chapped they were.
    My friend bought me a basic tube of lip balm -unscented and non-tinted.
    It works wonders and I think my lips feel very loved.
    I appreciate my friend for noticing it, otherwise I could have well chewed my lips off unknowingly.

    Heya, hope i’m not too late for this super exciting giveaway ^^
    my twitter is evie_ng. i has followed you

    The most memorable gift I have received was a jewelry se (a necklace and a pair of earrings) which my son bought for me when he study in New Zealand. It was very special for me because he had to arrive and queued in front of the store from 6AM to get the special discount one. It was not very expensive, but I really love it because it’s proved that my son care about me all the time. I feel so happy and lucky to have a son like him

    I wish everyone whether or not win the prizes will have a very happy holiday with family. cheers

  • Jason says:

    It was a card by my sisters and the last minute of my birthday.

  • Mdm Ho says:

    The most memorable gift I have given was a hand-sewn evening gown for my daughter’s graduation prom.
    Thought it has no BCBG or BEBE label, every stitch was sewn with love.
    It took me 3 nights to finish and she loved it! That’s all that matters.
    The amazing thing was my daughter said she would keep it and let her future girl wear it.♥♥♥

  • Florence says:

    My girlfriend used to tell me there’s no ugly girls only lazy ones. So in order to get me started on dolling myself up she gave me a MAC xmas palette. Needless to say, I fall in love with the infinite possibilities of experimenting with colors & makeup to make myself happy. And the discovery of beauty gurus/reviewers in the internet/blogs/youtube who share the same love!!

    Hi Mag, thanks for this! It was also heart warming reading the entries. Most of them answered the best gifts received so I think I’d answer with the best gift I have given. In return I also felt gifted. I just returned to GOD all the blessings He has showered me with.

    I joined! Merry Xmas!

    3. Tell me about the most memorable gift (beauty-related or otherwise) you’ve ever received or given.

    ”I think my most memorable gift I gave this year was my time to help out different charities. It always brings me to tears whenever I see a child being so happy , flashing me that adorable (sometimes ‘the no tooth’) smile even if I only give her a piece of clothing. To them it’s already something big, that most of us ignore oftentimes. I was able to donate old clothes & food to those who were affected by the major typhoon that hit the Phils. There were so many people who were homeless, left with nothing at all. I volunteered to help in every way I can by donating money, food & clothes. Whenever I see them, I appreciate more what I have and realize how lucky some of us are. While others do not have anything to wear, no shelter, no food to fill their empty stomach. Nothing can ever replace that wonderful feeling of bringing back to others what GOD has blessed me with. Life is beautiful so we all have to cherish it”.

    3. My most memorable gift I ever had was from my mum, she gifted me a DSLR camera to take really good and precise pictures for my blog not long ago and this was the item which I’ve never dreamt of getting my hands on it. It was really pricey and I would really want to cherish it and bring joy to my readers whenever they looked at pictures at a different angle.

    When I was young, my parents were very strict to me; I could not hang out with my friends like other teenagers. My life was only going to school, tuition and home. I kept thinking one day I would leave them to find my freedom.

    My chance had come! I chose to come over Singapore to further my studies before joining into the workforce. After a few months, I felt so sad and lonely because no family members with me. I had serious home sick.
    I started to go back to my family more often. My father would specially buy fresh roasted chestnut for me. Even though it was not the chestnut season, he would find it for me by all means. The reason is very simple – because it is my favourite. This is most memorable gift I’ve ever received. My father’s love had carved in my heart and now I am deeply connected to my family.

  • Rahayu says:

    My most memorable gift is a set of eyeshadow brushes from my dear bffs which I received last year because I wrote on facebook that I used paintbrushes to do my make up. At that point of time, I was still quite new to the beauty scene as I was just too lazy to put make up on. Now I know that make up can help enhance your beauty thanks to the enthusiasm of beauty bloggers :)

    The gift would be my proposal that I receive from my Hub last year.
    It was the meaning of a new chapter that we started on May 2011 after dating for 13 years…
    Although this is not beauty related but it’s the most meaningful gift that I’ve received!

It’s the first birthday after my dad passed away and since she know I was daddy’s little girl, she tried to adjust her role even though she has a very different personality compare to my dad. My dad was the romantic kind while she is totally on different pole hehehe..

  • Angela says:

    My most memorable beauty gift…I think I might have been five years old. It was my birthday. I received a pink box which contained a pink hairbrush, a pink comb and a pink handheld mirror. It was my very first “beauty” gift, and they were my most prized possessions for years after.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!
