  1. Thanks for doing this giveaway! I love that it’s a mix of everything – that Beauty journal looks really nice!

    1) Would have to be VMV Hypoallergenic’s Holiday Sets (not makeup, but does this count? :)

    2) Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks – really cheap, lovely colors and lasts forever! People in school now know me as “that-girl-with-crazy-bold-lips-on-a-regular-school-day”. :D

    Enjoy the holidays!

  2. Hi Mariana, I discovered your blog from Liz Lanuzo of the Project Vanity and I got addicted since. I love how simple and straight to the point your blog is. Also, you’re one of the prettiest bloggers too! Hihi. I hope I’ll be able to meet you one day and please don’t stop blogging. Merry Christmas to you and your family! <3

    (1) My favourite collection this season is the RiRi Hearts MAC Collection. I saw it on Temptalia and I was in love.. I can't wait for the release here in the Philippines though I know that it'll take months for that to happen.

    (2) I had a lot of awesome beauty finds this year but I think bareMinerals The Star Treatment Eyeshadow Palette is the best! My husband bought it on sale in Colorado for only $28 and it's the best palette I tried so far. The shades are highly pigmented. I can say that I got more than what I paid for.

    Happy holidays Mariana! Thanks for this giveaway! Would love to get the set with the yellow bag, it’s super cute!
    1. My favorite collection is the Lush holiday sets. I always feel so pampered whenever using Lush products, and when else to feel pampered but over the holidays!
    2. My best beauty find this year is the Bifesta cleansing lotion. It’s super effective in removing my everyday makeup, and it’s gentle to the skin. It’s also easily accessible (lots of drugstores and department stores carry it already).

  4. Vanessa de Guzman

    1. RiRi woo lipstick from RiRi hearts collection- I was lucky I was able to get one before it was sold out online! I love the color. Perfect for this coming holiday parties! :)

    2. Human Nature tinted lip balm (flame tree)- This is my best purchase for this year for some reasons: cheap (79php), 100% natural, Filipino-made :) , highly pigmented, and heals my cracked lips. It is very much comparable to Burt’s bees tinted lip balm.

    I like set B :) I love the notebook. where did you bought it? Happy holidays to you and your family!

  5. 1. I love the MAC Divine Nights collection!! Haven’t bought anything yet but I am drooling for the fluidline in Macroviolet <3
    2. The only thing that's really become a staple in my make up kit is the Lip and Cheek Stain from the Body Shop! Super tame and natural red, and I never seem to over-apply. It always seems on sale, too! Haha!

    I'd love box B. Happy holidays!

    Hi Mariana! Thank you so much for the giveaway!
    Okay so:
    1. My favorite “collection” would be everything in the strawberry range from Body Shop
    2. My best beauty find this year would be the Max Factor Flawless Perfection blush in Classic Pink. When I ran out of it, I realized how much I loved it and now I can’t wait to get my hands on another one!

    Enjoy the holidays!
    And advanced Merry Christmas too :)

    Hi Mariana! I’ve been a blog follower of yours for more than 6 months now and I love the clean and simple feel of your blog. I love the looks you post too! ♥


    1. My favorite holiday collection would probably be the MAC Divine Night collection basically because of the limited edition eye kohl colors. I love some lipstick shades too like Private Party. Oh oh, the fluidline in Macroviolet is to die for as well. ♡

    2. My absolute favorite make up find this year would be the Snoe Beauty Let it B WasaBi BB cream! I mix it with my Clinique liquid makeup that is 2 shades darker on me. Hehe It’s my everyday cover as it provides medium coverage that lasts pretty well in an airconditioned room for 8 hours. I’ll see if I have to replace it for 2014 since I am already on my 3rd bottle and my skin is already craving for something new (LM tinted moisturizer maybe?). :)

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway! I’d love to have box B, please. Haha

    Happy Holidays, Mariana!


  8. The prizes are so gorgeous, I couldn’t resist! Thanks for holding this giveaway. :-) Happy holidays!

    1) My favorite 2013 holiday collection is Bobbi Brown’s Old Hollywood Glam. Katie Holmes looks so effortlessly classy, and I love the rich matte-red, glittery-eye combo. I’m planning to get the LE eye palette for myself as a Christmas gift.

    2) My best beauty find this year was the Real Techniques brushes! They are such high-quality for the price, and the foundation brushes have especially improved my base routine. I’ve even bought a few sets as gifts! (I prefer Set A, please!)

  9. Hello MAriana! Happy Holidays! I would love to get the Beauty Box A. :) Thank you for doing this!

    1. My favorite collection is the Benefit Cosmetics Collection. Even though I don’t have them, they really caught my attention. I would love to get my hands on them. :)
    2. My best beauty finds this year is the famous EOS Sphere Lip Balm. I must admit, this lip balm rocks! It moisturizes your lips and it tastes delicious too. LOL.

  10. Hi Mariana! Happy Holidays! I’d like to join the giveaway, no specific beauty box in mind. (Both are pretty!) :)

    1. My favorite Christmas collection for this year (and many other years before) has got to be The Body Shop’s gift sets. This brand is definitely an oldie-but-goodie (though not so old). They always come up with the cutest packaging, and the items included in the sets are really sulit. More often than not, when I pick out a gift for someone, I end up also buying for myself. Hehe.

    2. My best beauty find for 2013 is Benefit’s Posietint. I’m pretty much the last one to discover it. I used to think that tints were all the same: Hard to spread evenly, drying up too quickly, and leaving splotches. This one was so different. It wasn’t too liquid that it got absorbed by the skin too fast, yet it wasn’t too thick that it started to feel sticky. Also, the bottle is compact enough to take it with me everywhere for when I need a quick color boost. I’m already saving up for my next bottle. :p

  11. Hi Ms. Iana, I’ve stumbled upon your blog way back when I was looking for a product review for the Clinique Cc cream. So glad that I caved in because its one of my daily staples now. 😄 Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones! 🎄

    1. My favorite this Holidays 2013 is the Mac Divine Night Collection. I just love the packaging and the colors of the eyeshadows and lipsticks. Perfect for a night out or for family gatherings this time of the year.

    2. Grooming the eyebrows is very essential to us girls. It can either make or break your look. That’s why I chose an eyebrow product as my best beauty find this year. The Jazzy Eyebrow Gel is my Hg eyebrow product. It has better staying power than Mac girlboy imho. Perfect for my 8 hour duty at the hospital. ❤️

  12. Sam

    Hiii, your blog was one of my break times during bar review. Reading about make up is relaxing! Haha. If i do win, I’d like to get box b since I’ve wanted to try a nude eyeliner ever since you blogged about it. Thanks :)

    1. MAC holiday collection because it’s always surprising each year!
    2. Revlon just bitten balm stain – I’ve bought around 5 and I love the color and staying power of each one.

    Merry Christmas!

    1) My favorite holiday collection for 2013 is the benefit advent calendar. There are some ‘dud’ items but it’s still good value for money if you want to try their products.
    2) My best beauty find this year is the revlon colorburst lip butters and lip glosses. Amazing shades!

    Oh Id like to win box b :)

  14. 1. my favorite collection for this season is the estee lauder blockbuster set. imagine my delight when i saw the collection worth php25,000 being sold at php3,500. it was really a nice timing that my balikbayan cousin was shopping at estee lauder. the catch was you need to purchase worth php4k before you can avail the blockbuster set for php3,500.
    2. my best beauty find for 2013 is the clinique chubby stick moisturizing lip colour balm. it’s super nourishing and perfect for cracking and dry lips like mine.
    i’d like the beauty box b in case i win =) happy holidays! cheers to a good start for 2014!

  15. Arra Morta

    Hiii, joining deary:)
    Well I have no particular favorites for the season since I seldom shops and I only use what works for me, maybe someday when I have the extra moolah for that:)
    And fror the best beauty find so far, it would be the colour collection lipstick in naked peach:) I love the color and its long lasting too:)

    Since my fave color is yellow so Im choosing number 1:)
    Happy Holidays!

  16. Lorraine

    1. My favorite collection for holiday 2013 is from Too Faced. It’s the A Few of my favorite things palette.
    2. And my fave beauty find for 2013 is The Balm’s Mary Loumanizer. I used to skip highlighting my cheekbones but now I always do since discovering the Mary Loumanizer.
