  1. OOOOOH this is so cool! I have discovered your blog just about a year ago and has bookmarked it and visited ever since, this is a must see before i start my day. I hope I win!!!! :)

  2. I’ve subscribed!! I’m not sure if this would be considered “constructive comment,” but…it seems as if there haven’t been many posts on makeup tutorials or FOTDs on your site lately [understandably we all got hectic lives], and i miss seeing your creative color combinations on eye shadow and techniques! Perhaps when brands such as MAC come out with new collections [eg. the Mineralize E/s Duo], you can give us a preview of how the product looks when applied on the face, not just swatches. Anyway, this is still my absolute FAVE makeup/skincare blog ^_^. Your site has given me the confidence to try different looks that I didn’t realize could look good on us Asians!! In other words, your site really helped me take a “step out of the box” haha. Thank you!!

  3. i am not too sure on google account but i have subscribed and put my name down as lisa,would that be fine,or do you need my email address too?
    keep rolling in your great make up blog.

  11. Hi Phyllis!

    I’ve been reading it for a while now and have been benefitting so much from your tutorials and product reviews! Thanks for being thorough in your instructions. I’ve never experimented as much with makeup until I read your blog!

    I just subscribed and am hoping for a goodies bag!

  12. hi, i enjoy coming to your website.. i check it out everyday. i have a youtube channel and people ask me where they can buy circle lens, and i redirect them to you.. so hope u dont mind

  13. Hey Phyllis!
    I’ve been reading your blog for around a year now and I absolutely ADORE it!
    I love how you have so many tutorials and product reviews, not to mention how organized they are as well.
    Through your blog, I have learned a lot of makeup tips.
    As for constructive comment, I honestly love everything you’re doing already.. The only thing I would like to see more of is new make up reviews and comparisons.
    Keep up the good work!!(:

  14. Wow.. i’m so excited for this too! Really would love to win.. have been reading your blog for so long now and absolutely love it! Keep up the amazing work! :)

  15. Hi! I’ve been lurking around your page for months and I really love your posts! You really do know how to get people to come outta hiding! haha…honestly, I love your site and reviews. I would like to maybe see a bit more reviews on skincare just because I’m more conscious about my skin because I’m getting older and would like to be more well informed about effective antiaging products :X

    But, like I said before, I love your site! Keep it up!

  16. Thanks for the chance to win some of your hand picked goodies! I’ve been following your blog for a while and this was a great incentive to sign up!

    Have you tried any lash conditoners before? The ones that imply that it will help them grow longer? =)

    Also, I’m not sure if it’s just me. Bur i just found your blog search field quite a ways below the main content. Any chance you could move it up for easier access?

    take care!

  17. I’ve subscribed! I hope I win but good luck to everyone else! I found your blog about a year ago and actually have it bookmarked and check every day. I even went back and read every single one of your posts. They are so interesting, well written, and give me the confidence to try new things, especially the false lashes. It was actually because of your blog that I decided to try them out. I don’t wear them regularly but now I know how to put them on! Your blog is great – I don’t really have much input on it because you already do such a good job. I love how you interact with your readers by setting up sales and now this. Thanks and keep up the awesome work!

  18. I think the contest is fantastic~ Especially since I’m still a bit of a novice when it comes to makeup.

    I particularly like that your blog covers both Western and Asian products, since I’m an ABC. I was so disappointed when I went to Skin Food in Taipei before reading your reviews on the BB Creams….I didn’t know about them and thus didn’t get the opportunity to buy them there. Luckily, there’s eBay, and I have to give 10/10 stars to the Mushroom Cream. I don’t even wear foundation or concealer anymore, which just makes my days so much easier. So, definitely, I’m going to keep watching out for your opinions on what works and what doesn’t.

  19. hi phyllis, still not sure on the feedburner,i have subscribed with my email address and it said that i have now subscribed.never mind. thanks anyway.

  20. love your blog. i read your blog every other day, if not everyday. i don’t have an account, but your contest prompted me to open an account…that’s how badly i want to win a prize! keep up the great work!

  21. I am subscribed to your wonderful blog. I love reading your thoughts and your advice has given me a lot of help, thanks!

  22. hey your blog is amazing! I love it’s reviews and updates on whats new and especially its organization and fluidity.
    The only thing I’d really recommend and like to see would be to possibly make videos for your tutorials on breakdowns, since sometimes just reading is not enough to get the full grasp of a tutorial.
    Keep making your blog amazing!

  23. Hey, :)

    Your webby is amaz!
    Since i’m asian your blogs nearly always fit the bill with my skin tone which is great since i live in a non-asian country ~

    As for constructive comment:- tis hard since most areas are widely detailed and covered. One thing which i can say is that it is quite hard to find the thing you want in the catagories section, it seems quite clear and simple but when you actually want to look for something it’s a bit confusing, it might be better if there are just simple tags such as “eyes” or “skin”.

    Checkin your site for all the new macy stuff, tis great 😀

  24. i really like your blog, love the way your make up looks, your face is flawless, i hope mine look as nice with the bb cream.

  25. ahha thank you, I don’t know how to work with sbscribing but I think I did! I love makeup 😀 and your page is fantastic. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge about makeup and makeup tips.=) thankies

  26. I’ve just discovered your blog a month ago and I check it at least three times a week. You are so unique when it comes to makeup and I love to hear more tips from you. I take a lot of pictures so I did not know wearing SPF will make my face come out whiter on the pictures until I started reading your blog. Thanks so much! Hope you will continue updating and maybe a video tutorial perhaps? Thanks 😀

  27. Hi Phyllis, thanks for holding this!

    I have been reading ur blog for a while now and i luv ur make up tips and product reviews! they r very useful! I notice you hav really great hair too so it would b really great if you can have more entries about hair products and hair styles! keep up the good work!

  28. Hi Phyllis,
    I enjoy reading your blog immensely, but my small criticism would be that when it comes to talking about new collections, the introduction, ie 'Designers Viktor & Rolf have collaborated with Shu Uemura's International Artistic Director Kakuyasu Uchiide to create three outrageously beautiful, limited edition sets of false lashes for Shu Uemura's Tokyo Lash Bar…' sometimes sound too much like advertising. I read your blog because I'm interested to know what your opinions are, which is quite often in the second half of those entries, ie when you do swatches, or give the breakdown of each piece in the collection and your review.

  29. Hey Gorgeous! I just plugged this (& lightweight hit on you) 😉 – great giveaway. Got any "man makeup" so I can enter? — Just kidding.

  30. I subscribed and I am excited about this giveaway! I could really use some makeup tips,some makeup products and just to feel attractive again once my baby is born.Help!!!

  31. hi! i enjoy reading your blog for quite awhile now and completely adore you showing/telling us readers how to achieve a look on a celebrity. keep it going (:

  32. i just subscribed ! i read your blog since 2 years ago lol i love your tips and how you direct advice to asian women and after reading your blog it made me want to try out new stuff like BB cream (which i brought online) and dhc products. thanks for all your hard work!

    and u are soooo pretty im soo jealous you have no idea lol

  35. Hey! I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now.

    Your review on BB cream got me really, really interested in trying it out, but sadly, I kept missing the custom orders that you did, so I finally caved and asked my mom if she could get me some while she was in Hong Kong.

    I don’t really know how to use makeup, but through your blog, I’ve gotten really interested in experimenting. 😛 I especially like the beauty breakdowns you do, especially of the Asian artists (e.g. Mika Nakashima), and the makeup reviews. Thanks!

  36. Hi! Thanks so much for all the work you put into your blog. I used your instructions for applying fake lashes and I love them!
    I’m not sure if hairstyles are your “thing”, too, but I would love to see tutorials, pics, and info on asian hair styles, cuts, accessories, etc.
