FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.

    NEW Reebonz Introduces Reebonz Beauty [Plus Giveaway!]

     

    [Scroll down the page for NEW entries, keeping this giveaway right at the top so you don't miss it]


    Hi hi!

    I am sure Reebonz is nothing new to many of you, if you are looking for 'discounted luxury'  [think YSL, Prada, Miu Miu], then you are looking for it at the right place at Reebonz.  Though I have never purchased anything there before (currently eyeing the extra large PS21 bag), I know that some of my colleagues and friends make their designer purchases at Reebonz and what great discounts they enjoyed.

    Just a quick introduction (in case you aren't aware):

    Reebonz consists of Women, Men and Kids sections, as well as a lifestyle section, City.  It is a membership access only online retailer, offering discounted high-end products and services.  It is an exclusive online shopping destination of premier brands and private sales. Events are held for short periods of time and are open to members only

    When I learned that Reebonz has extended their retail range to beauty in July 2011, I was curious to see what they offer.   I was told their top selling beauty brands are Clarins and SK-II, and they also carry products which are not available in Singapore, such as men's body care products --- Armani Men's and Ron Dorff.

    Now, here is the exciting part!

    So, in addition to sharing with you about Reebonz Beauty, I will also be hosting a Valentine's Day giveaway and Reebonz has very generously sponsored two sets of gifts up for grabs.

    The first is this D&G 10 La Roue De La Fortune perfume, along with a mystery gift packed together in a Reebonz box.

    Second prize consists of the mystery gift.

    (clue: the mystery gift is a skincare item, in case you are wondering)

     

    I hardly ever do sponsored giveaways unless it's really exclusive and the prizes really worth mentioning, and trust me, this is good.  I already own the D&G perfume, and if you like aromas of tuberose, gardenia, jasmine, benzoin and patchouli, then you would love the D&G 10 La Roue De La Fortune EDT.

    What do you need to do to win?

    • You might want to sign up for reebonz.com (if you aren't a member already - and no they didn't tell me to tell you sign up, and I don't gain any store credits for asking you to go sign up) and leave in the comments, which items are you lusting after on the site.  It is fun to see what's on everyone's wishlist - doesn't have to be a beauty item, just anything that catches your fancy.

     

    • Giveaway is open for a week.  I will announce winner on 21 Feb 2012.

     

    • I will pick 2 winners, one for the first prize, and one for the second prize.

     

    • This giveaway is open to all readers with a Singapore mailing address.

     

    • You only need to enter your comment ONCE.

     

    • Winners have 3 days to reply to me with your address after I send out the notification email, after which I will pick another person.  Prizes will be mailed out by Reebonz.

     

     

    Use the following format in your comment entry:

    Um, this is awkward, but I just posted this comment ^ above, and... That's not my account. I think my usual browser is corrupted or something, and it magically logged onto this person's account, and won't let me log out of it. I have no idea who she is... Please delete it.
