400,000 Follower Giveaway! (4 Sets of Prizes)

When the hubby was away in Tokyo for a business trip, I got him to trawl through Japanese drugstores (painstakingly I might add) and bring me back some yummy beauty goodies so I could do a 400,000 follower giveaway.

I know these products aren’t always easy to get hold of in many countries, and the price isn’t cheap when you factor in shipping. (One Humming Book palette is SGD25.90 or 1,500JPY from the MJ site before adding shipping fees) so here's a chance to get hold of some of these!

A: Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book 1

B: Majolica Majorca Little Humming Book II (2)

Next are the new Canmake Stay-on Balm Rouges. They’re kinda like Revlon Balmstains except they have UV filters to protect the lips. (And as with most Japanese drugstore products, the packaging is darling…)

C: Canmake Stay-on Balm Rouge in 02 (Sheer Peach), 03 (Sheer Red)

D: Canmake Stay-on Balm Rouge in 01 (Sheer Pink), 04 (Sheer Nude)

Whether you are on Blogger, on Instagram, on Pinterest, on Tumblr or on Facebook:
  1. Take a picture of yourself in your favorite makeup look,
  2. Hashtag #makeupbox400k
  3. List the 4 sets in order of preference (e.g. B, D, A, C) or say “no preference” if you don’t mind either way!
  4. Share your picture post with me before 15 May 2013
Instagram: @makeup_box and hashtag #makeupbox400k (otherwise I can’t be sure your image is for this contest!)
Tumblr: hashtag #makeupbox400k
Pinterest and other platforms (link your post in the comments section of this post below)

Things to Note:
  • I will pick a 1st-place to 4th-place winner based on personality, artistry, and/or humor. You don’t need a super-complicated makeup look to win this. It just needs to catch my attention! If theft or usage of someone else’s image is discovered, your entry will be disquaified.
  • I appreciate effort. Wherever possible try to do a new post (even if the picture was taken awhile ago), rather than going back to an old post and adding a hash-tag. Come on people, that’s too little effort!
  • The 1st place winner will receive the most-preferred item of her/his choice, and this means if both the 1st and 2nd place winners picked item C as their top choice, the champ will get it, and the runner-up will get her 2nd choice item. If y’all happen to pick different items as first-choice, then good for you!
  • You CAN submit multiple entries but only one one prize will be given per winner.
  • I will message winners to inform and obtain shipping addresses, so if you are using Disqus, make sure you are contactable. (You need to sign in with a valid email address when posting or I can’t reach you.) Failure to respond within 3 days (18 May) means forfeiture of the prize, and I will pick another winner to send it to!


  1. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but after looking at many of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back often!


Hi there! Leave a comment (and be nice)!
