Haul ★ The Face Shop & Others

Hello everyone!

At the beginning of October, The Face Shop opened a store at Fairview Mall (there's also one at Markville Mall) in place of what used to be Fruits & Passion, so now I don't have to travel all the way to Pacific Mall for it. Although Pacific Mall still has Holika Holika, Tony Moly, and Missha. Anyways, The Face Shop was having an opening promotion, so I couldn't help myself~

The stuff is more expensive than e-bay (y'know, import duties, taxes, etc.) but it's good for the convenience. There isn't a great price difference when it comes to the cheaper items (eyebrow pencils, face creams, etc.), but there is for the the products from their skin care lines ($10-15 difference from e-bay sellers, not so much with online stores). I bought a few things because of their opening promotion, which was something like $5 off $15, $10 off $25, $15 off $35, which is pretty awesome! Some of the stuff was out of stock due to the amount of business they've gotten, and they don't sell some of the things that are found online. But they do sell gift sets in cute boxes, which makes a great gift for a parent, relative, or friend :D

Also throwing in some of the stuff I got in the past few months or so, to my post is lengthier~

The Face Shop items: Mild Papaya Peeling (gel?), Chia Seed 0% Oil moisturizer/cream, Face It Radiance Dual Veil concealer in nb23, Mango Butter lip care cream, Chia Seed toner samples (the two small boxes on the left), Crystal Water Super Gel and something else under the Crystal Water Super Gel samples(I legit do not know what they are because it's all in Korean D:, but it's part of one of their skin care lines).

Other stuff: The Face Shop volcanic clay nose strips, The Face Shop Lovely Me:Ex magic pink powder mask, Mizon Snail Repair BB cream (SPF32, PA++), Holika Holika Face 2 Change CC cream (SPF32, PA++), Mizon Snail Recovery Gel (it came as a 2 for 1, so the other one is in the giveaway). All from f2plus1.

Tony Moly Egg Pore set: Black Out Oil Gel, Tightening Pack, Silky Smooth Balm. I purchased these from Jolse.

And on the more expensive end...

Chanel Vita Lumiere foundation. This is my current favourite foundation/face make-up 8D.

Yves Saint Laurent glossy stains in 105 (Coral Hold Up) and 14 (Fuchsia Dore). I really like the texture, feel, and lasting power of these stains. But the scent is off-putting because it smells like alcohol D:. 

Remember, I have a giveaway going on until November 1st (next Saturday)! I won't be making a banner because I don't have enough time, but you can just use it as a free entry if you want LOL. I won't check that particular one. I'll probably have another giveaway around the holiday season too ^^

Also, please let me know in the comments if you want a review on a certain item! I will have a review up soon ^^!

Hello everyone!

It feels like forever since I last posted LOL.

So I've been meaning to do this giveaway for awhile, but school has kind of gotten in the way of active blogging. I'm grateful to everyone who has followed me so far, so this is my way of giving back! I never thought that I would be at almost 100 followers on blogger * A*.

This is my first giveaway on blogger, although I have done one on tumblr before~ I'm not sure if I'm missing out on any information and whatnot, but please let me know if I am! I put it whatever I felt fit for the rafflecopter options OTL.

All items were purchased by me at one point or another, but I never got around to using them. I feel that someone would make good use of these things ^^. All items are new in package/unopened, so they haven't been tampered with! I added in some other stuff to make my giveaway a little more appealing LOL. Of course, you're probably really curious as to the prizes of this giveaway!

Note: Although I don't believe any of the skin-related samples (masks, moisturizers, CC cream, etc.) will cause problems, I think it's important that you do a search for some of the items before using them, especially if you have sensitive skin.

★ Benefit World Famous Neutrals - Most Glamorous Nudes palette (2 cream eyeshadows, 4 normal eyeshadows)
★ Dolly Wink eyelashes no. 2 
★ Dolly Wink eyelashes no. 7 - lower eyelashes
★ Mizon Snail Recovery Gel
★ Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
★ A bunch of samples (masks, CC cream, moisturizers, etc.)

★ There will only be one winner who will be randomly selected by rafflecopter
★ Please make sure the e-mail you provide with rafflecopter is an active e-mail!
★ I will e-mail the winner, and the winner must contact me within 3 days otherwise I will select another winner
★ It is open internationally
★ It will end on November 1st, 2013 
★ You can get multiple entries with the options listed on rafflecopter
 ★ I guess for safety measures, you should have parental permission if you're under 16 LOL

No banner right now, but maybe I'll make one later > A<.
