One Giveaway Three Prizes

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.

I stopped by the Loccitane Beauty Market Today

My freebies for the day

Today I went to the mall can came back with these freebies. I was out to do a few errands and to buy some reference book for my kid so might as well drop by the Loccitane Beauty Market to have a look at what’s going on. It was quite happening. There were lots of Instagram worthy spots for those of you who love taking photos. In fact I saw a few ladies posing in some of the pretty set ups.

I had pre-registered for this event online. Too bad I was not one of the first 1000 (wow 1000) to register so I did not have a free gift for that. However, there were about half a dozen “stations” for me to visit and at the end, I could redeem about 5 free samples.

If you are planning to visit the Beauty Market, you need to first register (either pre-register or on the spot) and then each time you visit a station (there are about 6), your mobile will be scanned. Once you have completed all, you can go to the redemption counter to redeem your samples. Oh my, everything is so high tech these days.

Instagram worthy roses
I caught two ladies posing prettily here
Another Instagram worthy set up

If you take a photo and upload to your social media, whether IG or FB and hashtag #loccitanemalaysia or #loccitanebeautymarket, you will get an extra travel sized shampoo with compliments. You can include yourself in the photo or otherwise, it does not matter as long as it is at the event and includes those hashtags.

Here’s one other tip. One of the stations, you might like to visit is the Cultiveat Station where you can recycle 6 empty bottles for a free vegetable. I prefer to save my 6 empties for the Loccitane recycling project which is still ongoing as you can exchange them for Loccitane products. You can get your free vegetable if you answer a simple 5 page questionnaire instead of recycling your bottles. The questionnaire is set up on a big giant mobile phone screen at the station.

Pick your free vegetables here
Make sure you fill up a survey on this giant mobile first

If you are wondering what the Watsons Honey & Milk Scented pack is doing there… well, I activated my Touch n Go eWallet recently with a RM8 free credit. I had RM5.50 which was expiring soon, so I went to pick that up for RM4.60 so that’s another freebie too.

Here are some of the other interesting stations to visit.

I was too embarrassed to have my scalp health tested here because I know its not very healthy!
I thought this was cute. Almonds galore!
Its nice to know some history about the products you buy
If you like to take selfies, here’s a nice booth just for you to pose
My favourite station. Everything smelled so good here
You can pick up the bells to smell the perfume samples
Flowers, flowers everywhere!

I took time to smell the flowers today and it felt good.

I hope this blog post on my newly revived blog is useful for you if you plan to visit the Loccitane Beauty Market. It is on till Sunday 18th August 2019 at the Mid Valley Megamall Centrecourt. 

My New Contest Group On Facebook

Someone suggested that I write about my contest adventures and though I wanted to do so, I was a bit lazy because I have 5 FB groups, 1 website, half a dozen blogs, a few FB pages and all the social media accounts to keep these active. I also send out weekly newsletters to my website and blog subscribers so my hands are full.

However, my contest group is my current love so its always on my mind and writing about it will be quite effortless so here goes. It also gives me a chance to keep this blog alive again. I’ve been paying for it for years and not updating much. What a waste.

I started my contest group on 14 March 2019. It’s now 13 August 2019. That means my group is now 5 months old. I started the group with a few members from my other happy parents group and today the contest group has 1,372 members. It was growing at a very fast rate but I stalled it by changing it from a public to closed group due to increase security for the group.

I have made many new friends along the way and won many new prizes along the way too. I discovered that if you work hard at something, anything at all (even joining contests and giveaways), your efforts won’t go to waste. Also, it is not all luck. Nothing comes free. Everything comes with hard work, time and effort.

Just a short post for now as it is a busy day. My first few posts will be rather haphazard just writing anything on my mind till I catch up with my recording of my adventures for the past 5 months.
