The Etude House Chocolate Kiss Collection (Plus a Giveaway)

As January draws to an end, the next thing on our minds inevitably points towards the 14th of February. For some, it’s quite the exciting day, because, you know, it’s the first time of their lives they’re celebrating it with someone. For others, it can get rather annoying, seeing girls walk down Orchard Road with human-sized teddy bears with smug satisfaction imprinted on their faces. There’s no guessing which category I belong to, but just to set the record straight, I’m somewhere in between the two.

 

I do like Valentine’s Day but to be honest, any day could be a perfect Valentine’s. And what would anyone do with teddy bears that aren’t of any use? Guys, if there’s one thing you should not get a potential lover for V-day, it’s definitely some cuddly tuft of wool (unless it’s her kind of thing). We ladies like something more… practical these days. You know, like makeup *ahem*. Or maybe I’m just getting old.

Giveaway Kiehl's Super Multi-Corrective Cream

Giveaway: Something Special & New from Kiehl’s

Imagine this scenario (well, actually some of us don’t have to because we’ve experienced it for real): It’s the end of a long, busy day; You’re washing your makeup off; You don’t really want to because you did a good job on that smokey eye effect, but you have no choice because you don’t want breakouts tomorrow; So you admire your artwork for a few seconds more in the mirror when suddenly… *GASP* There is a line which was never there before!

 

Is it the makeup creasing? Is it the compact foundation caking up? You rub gently along the offending line, half wishing you were hallucinating. You add more makeup remover but the line doesn’t seem to go away. OH. MY. GOD. Fear sets in. You wish you had done all those things you were too scared to do. Death looms near. Like, you can actually feel it creep up  against your skin. No, not the skin!

 

Quick! You need to reverse the hands of the clock. Heck, of all the clocks in the world! Make the earth circle in the opposite direction! Make the sun grow smaller! Make shooting stars fly backwards! Make dinosaurs come alive again!

 

OK, maybe that was a teeny bit exaggerated. You slump into bed, realising you ARE ageing. What those women say about gravity and slowed metabolism is true and it’s happening to you. You have no choice. It’s either you ignore it and leave your skin to its natural tendencies, or you do something about it. That’s where I come in.

Laced Ivory Sure Win Giveaway: 100 KMS California iPhone Covers

The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway on Laced Ivory

The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway

Yes! It’s finally September! August took quite a while didn’t it? I’m so glad it’s over so we can all move on. I hadn’t been blogging religiously enough recently and here’s a giveaway to make up for all that absenteeism. Oh how I’ve missed doing giveaways! This time, I’m holding The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway!

 

You see, as a beauty blogger, I have tons of beauty products to try out and experiment with. However, sadly, I only have one face. This means that sometimes, it’s impossible for me to use everything that I have. And because I don’t want things to go to waste, I’m giving them to you!  The products in today’s giveaway are special because they come from a mix of brands that have received accolades from various consumers (i.e. other beauty aficionados around the world). In addition to that, there are the yet-to-be-launched skincare products from celebrity-loved brand Nip + Fab so you’ll get to try them before the rest of Singapore does (in October)! Let’s now take a closer look at the items to be won!

 

DSC2028new The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway

The Nip + Fab products yet to be launched in Singapore! Try them before everyone else does!

 

DSC2029new The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway

A Fancl skincare set, including the well-loved Washing Powder.

 

DSC2032new The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway

More skin-loving products from Leaders InSolution. Take care of your eyes and nose!

 

DSC2031new The Ultimate Skincare Giveaway

The Leaders InSolution Pore Clinic Care 2 Step Kit consists of 10 sachets of the Black Head Clinic Sheet and a tube of the Pore Tightening Serum.

 

Before I let you in on how you can win, I’d like to first talk a little bit about Nip + Fab. It’s a skincare and body care brand that many celebrities, including Victoria Beckham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, love. The brand recently launched its body care range in Singapore and come October, it will launch the skincare line as well. I’m pretty excited about this because although their products contain alcohol, they smell nice and actually do work. The Eye Fix (bestseller), for example, acts as a 2-in-1 eye cream and concealor which really makes a difference. Apart from that, none of the products from the skincare range – except the No Needle Fix Instant Skin Plumper – costs over S$30.

 

I also like that the Frown Fix (which I’m giving away) contains amino acids instead of collagen because collagen beauty products don’t work (more on that in a later entry). To find out more about Nip + Fab’s skincare range, head on over to www.nipandfab.com.sg.

 

And now, to the most important part. Here’s how you can win this entire package of skin pampering goodies! You simply have to do all the tasks in the widget below to qualify. To spell it out for you, you’ll have to:

1) Be a fan of Laced Ivory on Facebook – 1 Kiss Point

2) Share the news on Facebook – 1 Kiss Point

3) Leave a blog post comment to tell me which product/s you’re most excited about – 1 Kiss Point

 

It’s really easy to participate because everything’s done just with a click of the mouse (and some typing). The entire list of items to be won is also listed in the widget.

 

The rules:

1) This giveaway is open only to residences in Singapore due to the nature of some of the products. It ends at 12.01am EST on 13th September 2012.

2) To qualify, you have to complete all 3 items in the widget below. Otherwise, your entries will be deleted. For example, if you only leave a comment, your entry will be omitted.

3) One winner will be chosen at random. If the selected winner does not respond to my contact efforts within 7 days, I will pick another winner.

4) The package will be delivered via a meet-up only. If you cannot, or are not willing to, meet, then I will also pick another winner.

It’s kind of like a fun grab bag giveaway because you won’t know exactly what you’ll get but it’s not entirely a surprise either. I’m excited just thinking about it!

2) The giveaway is only open to residents in Singapore due to the nature of some of the items. Two winners will be chosen at random via Random.org. The packages will be mailed out to the selected winners. I’m really sorry to those of you not living in Singapore. I’ll hold another international giveaway soon.

3) In the event that a selected winner does not respond to my contact efforts within a week, I will choose a replacement winner.

4) This giveaway ends on 6th June 2012, 11:59pm Singapore time.

5) Please, no exchanges of any sort will be entertained once the giveaway ends. This is, after all, still a giveaway and everything in here is free for you! You might not get everything that you want if the other winner has also chosen the same items. I will allocate at least one of your preferred items in your grab bag!

 

Here’s how you can win!

1) Subscribe to Laced Ivory via email (compulsory) - 1 kiss

2) Share this picture on Facebook – 1 kiss

To qualify, you have to subscribe VIA EMAIL and not via a web-based news reader like Google Reader. If you’d like to get more kiss points and up your chances of winning, you can tell others about this giveaway on Facebook. Although it’s not necessary to be a fan of Laced Ivory on Facebook to participate in this giveaway, you can do that to stay connected and updated on beauty, fashion and health news, which I don’t always post on the blog. I will also announce the winners on Facebook in addition to the blog once they have been picked.

CIMG4583new Preview & Giveaway: Laneiges Love in Bloom 2012 Collection

Lip glosses from the Laneige Love in Bloom 2012 Collection.

 

Laneige is launching the Love in Bloom collection in March and I’m really excited to share this with you! The collection is a collaboration with celebrated illustrator, Sanna Annuka, who has worked with Vogue and Marimekko, to name a few. The collection features 5 lip glosses (I’m giving 2 away), an eyeshadow palette consisting of 9 shades and a sculpting blush. Drawing inspiration from Finnish folk tradition, Sanna has given the products pretty floral motifs as the final touches of the limited edition spring makeup collection. No, seriously. The packaging is so cute!

Such pretty patterns!

 

CIMG4631new Preview & Giveaway: Laneiges Love in Bloom 2012 Collection

Beneath the blush lies a brush.

 

I tested out a couple of the glosses and found them to be very creamy and pigmented. Each gloss also comes packaged with a small lip brush so for those of you who don’t own one, you don’t have to specially go out to get one. The eyeshadow palette not featured here contains colours like lavender, light pink and beige alongside more dramatic colours like navy and aubergine, which makes for a suitable day-to-night transformation.

 

The collection launches in March but you can stand a chance to win a lip gloss right here on Laced Ivory Beauty Blog. I’m giving two lip glosses away, one each to two individuals (i.e. There will be two winners). The giveaway is open internationally, as long as you are located in a country that does not restrict the import of the lip gloss. In the instance that a selected winner does not respond to my contact efforts within a week, a new winner will be chosen to replace him/her. To take part, simply follow the instructions in the widget below. Good luck!
