Summer Blog Giveaway

Filed under Promos and Contests

As promised on the “The Doctor is vaIN” facebook page, more freebies are to be given once the members reach 300. Last weekend, little did I realize that we just hit 300.  It was sooner than I expected. Yipee!!!

24 shimmer palette

As a supporter of your dreams to learn makeup, I’m giving away another addition to your growing stash. The 24 Shimmer Palette consists of 24 pretty shimmery pastel colors that I used in one of my shoots. The shades may not be as pigmented as they look on the palette so forget about this if you’re looking for bold colors like those on the 120 palette, which I reviewed before. Instead, these are wearable eyeshadows with the “pop factor” that you’d love putting on yourself or your clients.

Good news!!! This time, there will not only be one but two winners! The grand winner will nab the Brand New In Box 24-shimmer palette while the runner-up will get a set of Human Heart Nature organic goodies. This is my way of thanking you help me reach the 300 mark on “The Doctor is vaIN” facebook page. Please keep inviting friends to our page for more future freebies. :)

Contest Winner Announced

March 17, 2010 by  
Filed under Promos and Contests

Last night, we concluded the contest over at facebook in which a spanking new 28 neutral palette and Human Heart Nature Intensive Hair Mask were given away to a lucky blog reader. I was overwhelmed by the responses. I was expecting only around 50-100 entries given the option to join as many times as you can. After all, I don’t really know if people are reading my blog at all.   Most of the time, I just feel like I’m talking to myself around here. In the end, there were 1,836 entries to be raffled.  After seeing the number, I almost choked realizing how tough it would be to choose the winner.

As I mentioned in the contest mechanics, each entry will be assigned a number. The winner will then be chosen randomly through Unfortunately, it’s difficult to view all of the comments on facebook at once especially if we’re talking around more than a thousand comments. Instead of choosing a single number out of 1,836 and track the winning number by counting backwards, I decided to do it another way. Since the contest ran from March 1 to 15, I picked a number from 1 to 15 from, it yielded the number 15.  From the entries on that day, March 15, I copied them to the random list generator.  Each entry was assigned a random number. From that list,  I generated the winning number, still through Rest assured it was drawn fair and square.

And the lucky blog reader is…. Ms. Peewee Abesamis! She will be receiving the 28 Neutral Palette plus a Human Heart Nature Intensive Hair Mask. She already contacted me with her mailing details. Air21 picked up her package this afternoon from our house.

If I had unlimited resources, I’d also give the same prizes to everyone who joined, especially those who submitted the most number of entries. I’m really touched that some even invited their husbands and relatives to win the freebies for them.  As a reward, I’m giving away a free ebook on beauty tips to everyone who joined. If you still haven’t got your copy, instructions are posted on the facebook page.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined this blog’s facebook fan page. I know the word fan sounds arrogant but I couldn’t customize it to become a Facebook Blog Update Page. I just wanted to find venue where I could connect with you better. Don’t mind the word fan. It’s not like I’m gunning to be the next Angel Locsin or something.

If I’m not posting here as much as I used to, blame it on the frequent brownouts here in Mindanao. Along with the dehydrating summer heat,  it tends to make my blogging powers fluctuate, too.  It’s difficult to think when you’re inside an oven.

This early, I’m already preparing my next set of freebies for you! Just hold on, I’ll keep you posted on this one. Til then!

Waking up tired

Ever since the new year started, I’ve been out of words to write. It’s like my brain’s been reprogrammed that I don’t know how to blog anymore. Sheesh. I think I have a bad case of a Bloggers’ block. It’s taking my neurons forever to rise to its action potential from the holiday rest, as though it’s on a vacation in Panama city beach FL. Hope it doesn’t wait for the Chinese New Year to get its blogging groove back.

There are plenty of topics that I still have to cover yet I don’t know where to start. Some of the entries are still on draft mode which I should finish before the month ends. I got a couple of emails requesting for particular topics, please do hang on!

I promise more contents for this year. And oh, if you’re looking for a chance to enroll in a makeup artist course for free, Minute Maid and are having a contest til January 29, 2010!  The ad is frequently being shown below. They are giving away a P15,000 worth of makeup short course  at SOFA, the school featured on Project Runway Philippines. For the full mechanics, please head THIS WAY.

If you’re a coffee-loving fashion plate, you might want to try your luck at Equal’s contest for a free Figaro Coffee and let the world know of your fashion style. 150 winners are chosen daily. Read more details on THIS SITE. Good Luck!

Speaking of contests, I have something under wraps for you. Will draft the mechanics soon when I fully wake up from this blogging slumber. For now I’m still “sleepwriting” so pardon my incoherence. Please watch out for the coming posts.  ZZZZzzzzz…
