Blog Giveaway: 12 Treats for a Pretty Princess

December has always been special to me. Well, it is the birth month of Jesus and mine too!:) It is that time of the year when the world seems to be in high spirits, joy and love are very evident despite the inevitable predicaments, and people actually share whatever they could to others. Such a wonderful season, no?

In celebration of this happy month, I am holding my first blog giveaway (well, for this new blog). YEY!

The following items are from my Etude House cosmetic collection which I rarely use.  12 to be exact, like the 12 days of Christmas teeehee. Some have been used once only for swatching purpose and some, totally unused. As much as I would not want to part with these, my conscience tells me to just give them away to someone who would benefit more from them rather than wait for the inevitable expiration, hence the big waste.  

Before I give the mechanics, here are the items up for grabs.:) If you are not too keen on using pre-loved cosmetics, you might want to have these for swatching or sampling purpose.:) 

Forgive me for the poor photo quality, I couldn't wait for the digital camera anymore (which was somewhere else LOL)  so I just used my good old cellphone. ^^

1. Aloha Cocktail Syrup Nails Kit in Rose Cocktail
Condition: Used Twice only

2-3. Crack Nail Color in Black and Blue
Condition: While these polishes may not be
at their best quality, they have not dried up yet.

4-7. Matte Nail Polishes
Condition: Used only for swatching purpose.
It seems that I'm not very much into matte nails.:)

8-9. Sponge and Lip Brush

10. Proof 10 Eye Primer
Condition: Tested Once

11. Ms. Tangerine Cheek Ball
Condition: Used only for swatching purpose;
Missing puff but any brush can be used for this.

12. Miss Tangerine Lucidarling Fantastic Gradation Eyes
Condition: Used only for swatching purpose.
Seems like orange does not suit me :D

  5. Wow! All from Etude House! I've only tried their BB cream, because of that ad of Sandara and the korean boys, which I find really funny!

    too bad you didn't like their matte polishes. i really like them especially the turquoise one.

    1. Noted Andy!:)

      It's not that I don't like matte polishes but the first time I used one, the quick dry formula made application hard for me. And because I wasn't very careful (or maybe because polishing nails isn't really one of my talents hehe), my nails ended up looking disastrous. LOL:D
