I joined a giveaway by Guardian and SilkyGirl a while back. Well, actually I join many Guardian giveaways and many SilkyGirl giveaways too. You just have to love Guardian for the many giveaways they run for the different brands they carry and Silkygirl for their many affordable products.

Anyway, I joined one or several with the SilkyGirl brand. Some were for foundation, some for matte lipsticks or eyeliners etc. I won the Guardian and SilkyGirl Gen Matte Cushion Foundation giveaway. I will tell you a little bit more about this later on in the post.

First, I want to express my gratitude to Guardian and SilkGirl because to my surprise I received 3 items all together! They are the SilkyGirl Gen Matte Cushion Foundation, the SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream and the SilkGirl Precision Liquid Eyeliner! Wowee! Good things come in threes!

1. The SilkyGirl Gen Matte Cushion Foundation is in a stick format with a
sponge applicator at the top with a cover and all you have to do is twist the base to dispense the foundation. Never had a foundation like that before so it will be interesting to try. This foundation has SPF 25/PA++ too. Recommended retail price is RM46.90. I got 01 Light which is perfect for my skin tone.

2. The SilkyGirl Matte Junkie lip cream came in my favourite colour. 04-Vintage. Super! Retail price is currently RM24.90 ( or RM22.41 with 10% off) at Guardian. It’s a matte lip cream. I like them in matte because if I want to make them look glossy, all I have to do is add lip gloss.

3. The SilkyGirl Precision Liquid Eyeliner in 01 Black which is waterproof and currently retailing at RM22.90 (with 34% discount = RM15). Now this one, I need some practice to make sure I can draw it with great precision….

Love them and can’t wait to try them! Now if only I had a place to go or a party to attend. No matter. I will wear it out this weekend to the market. Hey! A girl has got to look good all the time right? Who knows you might just bump into an old flame or an old classmate and you wouldn’t want to look like something the cat dragged out. Thank you Guardian and SilkyGirl!

Quick update: Being the impatient person that I am, I coudn’t wait till my market excursion to try them out so I immediately tested them. Verdict: Love the foundation. So easy to apply and carry around and it feels lightweight and has good coverage. Love the matte lip cream. Feels lightweight and moist when applied but magically turns matte when done. Nice colour too. As for the precision liquid eyeliner, I obviously need more practice with these things. I never can quite get the hang of having a steady hand when applying liquid liners. If you have a steady hand, it will look great on you.

Incidentally, I also received an email informing me that I won movie merchandise for Alladin the movie. I wonder what I got for that? A magic lamp to conjure up more prizes? LoL. I hope. Whatever it is, I will appreciate and treasure it.
