as the title suggests, i was one of the 10 lucky winners of Sephora's August #SephoraHaul Instagram Contest. :O *throws confetti*
it still feels surreal to actually win as i've never had any luck in such competitions, be it giveaways or lucky draws. i guess my years of bad luck is made up with this lucky shot. hah! not complaining
anyways, i would like to point out that there is no Sephora outlet in the city i'm living in. *hint Sephora hint*
just so happens I was in Kuching with my friends when Sephora posted about the competition. so I thought why not? it was worth a shot. since we were going to Sephora anyways and i was going to pick up a few stuff :p
bought a few stuff and proceeded with a mini photo-shooting session when we got back to the hotel. bless the gorgeous sunlight and also the vanity table that provided the perfect background for my winning shot.
anyways, these were the items that i got:
- Stila - Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Patina
- NYX - Liquid Suede in Sandstorm (wanted Soft Spoken but alas it was sold out cry)
- Kat Von D - Lock It Foundation
- Urban Decay - All Nighter makeup setting spray (infamous)
so i was scrolling through my insta feed and saw this post by Sephora. they announced the winners! so i looked through the tagged igns, and one of them looks so similar to mine, but it was misspelled. i checked to see if maybe it was coincidence that our insta id is similar, but there was no such account. imagine the joy that rushed through me. woot woot!!
i commented on the post asking whether i was one of the winners and that it was a typo. moments later Sephora replied - it was a mistake!! :D :D :D
and Sephora reposted my pic. MY PIC!!!!! can life get any better? ahahaha -bliss-
the prize for this instagram competition is RM300 worth of goodies + RM200 online voucher. The goodies were packed nicely in a gorgeous Sephora box. of course i kept the box to store my stuffs. ^^
Sephora goodies! it was a mix of masks, eye shadows, eye primer & bronzer. what really caught my attention was the gigantic Sephora Disc Bronzer!! I googled and apparently it is limited edition?!
there's three color to this bronzer - brown, light brown and a pinkish shade. i usually swirl my brush in the palette to mix the colors, then swipe it on my face. i use this bronzer occasionally, so it's safe to conclude that it definitely won't hit pan anytime soon. color payoff is pretty good, though it is quite brown on my skin so i would have to apply it with a light hand. one thing i do not like about this is the smell. :\
that's it for this post! stay tuned and i will upload what i got from Sephora online using the RM200 voucher I won. :D maybe also throw in review of the items mentioned in this post. but that's a big maybe. - do not gamble your life on it. -
