Commenters of the Month for May and June, July gift

I am once again late in announcing this so I decided to schedule the next CoM gift for July. It's a pretty exciting loot from Benefit which I'm sure you'll love! But first, congratulations to the Commenters of the Month for May and June respectively: Paulina and Maggie! They've been very active not just on the blog post but on the Ask Liz! forum as well. Even I'm learning lots of interesting tidbits from both these girls.

Paulina will be getting the Clinique gift for May, while Maggie will also get a pouch from Clinique with some samples and a few full-sized things from other brands. :) Again, congratulations and thank you for your intelligent and kind words on my blog. Please email me your full name and addresses so I can ship your gift.

Moving forward, I requested for two of my favorite products from Benefit for the July CoM gift : the Cha Cha Tint and Hervana Blush. If you read my reviews, you'll find out why I love using these two cheek prettifiers whenever I'm craving for a coral or pinky flush. The kind folks at Benefit also added their latest product, the Benefit Fake Up Concealer! So jealous, as I haven't tried this yet myself haha. 

Please do like the Benefit Philippines Facebook Page to keep updated about the brand's latest promos and prizes. ;)

Okay, same mechanics as before! Every month, I'll pick a commenter on my blog. She must be able to leave useful comments, such as sharing feedback about a product I reviewed. It can be a "thank you" comment, or maybe a really good question (I love good questions). A big factor would be the frequency of the reader's comments. Does she always visit? Does she read through the site? At the end of the day though, I always value quality more than quantity. Consistency is key.

Comment away! Am hoping to hear from you. ;) I'll pick the winner by mid-June.

PS Past winners of my Commenter of the Month gift are usually not allowed to win again. However, I want to lift that condition for this round. If you already won CoM, you can try for it once more. Good luck!

umm, i'm embarrassed to say i've only visited the Ask Liz forums today! hee. given my limited knowledge, i don't really expect to be able to contribute but i'll be reading. i was actually haphazard-ing forum advice before i found blogs i could trust. it's good to know that this community is unlikely to let me down. :)

Hi Liz, I gotta say you've been an amazing inspiration on why I've started a blog (literally just days old). I love how you've made real and honest reviews on products, especially on makeup that are really too maputi for the morena's out there - me included. Just a question, I don't know if you've experienced this, but whenever I use the Cha Cha tint it just disappears on my skin! Gaaaa!!! I end up packing so much just to get my desired flush that I'm almost half-way into my bottle (mind you I got this just last May). Do you have any suggestions in maximizing this tint? I don't know, maybe I just have super absorbent pores.

Thank you so much, ms. Liz!! :) We learn a lot from your blog, too! Hoping for a lipstick month xx

June 21, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPaulina

hi liz...super informative ng site mo...from the make up tutorial up to the hauls, sobrang helpful talaga. the good thing about your blog is that, you don't only blog about expensive products. kaya yung mga tight yung budget especially mga students could really try the product that you are using. in a way, natutulungan mo yung mga readers ng blog mo na madagdagan yung self confidence nila.thank you so much!

May I ask when was the Ask Liz forum was established? I was caught unaware with that despite reading your blog for 3 years!! My bad. This site has evolved so much and I've got nothing but praises for this one. Congratssss!! :) this month's prize has really caught my attention as I have been reading tons of article just now for these and Keep telling myself not to splurge too much. This is totally a wow month!! Keep it up ms liz :)

Thank you Ms Liz for choosin me as CoM. Just emailed you my details :-)
I definitely had fun answering questions of others and commenting at your posts. I will definitely answer more questions and comment on posts because this is fun! I thank you digitaltraincase for stumbling upon your blog. Everyday i've been checkin for new posts and new questions. "Yung feeling ko na own blog ko to lol" my knowledge on beauty and makeup just came from youtube gurus, research, and my derma. And experiences. This is a huge achievement for a 19 year old!!! I never won at anything! Even small raffles or anyother giveaways from online shop! Thank you again Ms Liz! Will definitely answer and comment more. :-)

such a generous soul liz..that's why blessings keep coming your way..

I saw a sale of benefit before but I didn't check it out and I regret that a lot. There was also a sale for Rimmel and Clinique then. Oh right, I see those at a building in Binondo. Those aren't fake too.

June 21, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterStacie

Omg! I have been following your blog for more than a year now but I just got the nerve to comment right now. I waaaaaaaaaaaaant!! :-)

June 21, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKarla

Gosh! I missed reading your blog Ms. Liz. Last time I read your post was last week. I got held up from school. :(( boohoo. Anyways, your CoM's prizes are really evolving! :))) you're so generous :D GODSPEED.

New follower here. Read most of your lipstick blog. Hay, now i'm so excited to purchase coral berry, :) thanks for the review.

Slowly starting to invest in high quality makeup, thanks to this blog! You convinced me to get the Shu eyebrow pencil and the Benefit Cha Cha Tint and I'm loving both. I've always thought splurging on makeup was a waste of money but surprisingly these purchases actually halted my tendency to spend small amounts of cash on so-so items. My makeup bureau now looks more streamlined, with a good mix of upscale and department store items that have quality as their common denominator. Here's to smarter purchases that have higher quality and amazing value for money! Whoever gets this Benefit pack is one lucky gal! :-)

Hi Liz, I am a new reader. Followed you on bloglovin last month and I never would've thought I'll get hooked! I am very picky with the blogs that I visit, I only read Martha's and I am a follower for more than a year. For me the whole look of the page matters, and I could say that your page is really attractive. I love the colors, font and layout. Its very minimalist, yet sophisticated. Blog content is very humble and honest. You are a very professional blogger reason why you have a lot of readers. This is the kind of blog that we can truly trust. I want to thank you for all of your honest opinions on your reviews. May God bless you always. More power to you and your blog. :-*

Hi Liz. I am always following your blog.As a matter of fact I make sure to check it everyday. I follow 4 blogs,yours,beauty junker,shens addiction and lush angel. I find your website very helpful and inspiring as well. It inspires me to work hard just to be able to buy make up especially Estée Lauder,Mac and Bobbi brown make up.
Btw,which one do you prefer Bobbi brown long wear powder foundation or the Estée Lauder invisible powder?

June 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKath

Whoah! These are such good products for sure. I have just started being into makeup early last year and i am building my collection quite slowly but surely. Can i just thank you (and your blog) for making me choose the right products for myself? I love your blog, Liz! I am only using my iphone when browsing blogs and your blog is actually first on my reading list! And most of my (humble) makeup collection are products which you have reviewed and approved (you know what i mean). And i'm like, if Liz approves, meh approves! Hehe. Whenever i contemplate on buying a product you've recommended (and that i needed at the moment), i would just re-read your post and then i'm 100% sold. Please don't ever stop blogging. My first product which i bought based on your recommendation is the in2it brow powder and the rest is history. Hehe. Uhm, can you do a 'Dupe Week'? I would love to see your dupe finds as i am sure you've come to a lot since you have quite a collection of makeup. Thank you!

hi liz!! i'm a beauty addict (symptoms includes: going straight to the makeup booth upon arriving to mall, spending a minimum of two hours applying makeup-then removing em all afterwards-- because you JUST wanna, owning four-kinds of pencil brushes, 3 stippling brushes, 5 foundation brushes, all kinds of makeup brushes.. 3 dozen lippies... you get the picture..). But alas, i do not live in the metropolis anymore and the stores here does not sell primers(opo mam, sa me hardware department po...argh).
good thing, there's this nifty technology and the world wide web which not only gave me access to retail therapy.. but retail idealogy. Liz, keep on blogging. you keep us in check and prevent her from watching her hard earned moola fly with the rock!

Congrats to both winners. They put really insightful comments here, im learning a lot too. I dont own any Benefit boxed blushes as I find them too pricey but I want to try Coralista and Hervana. Benefit makes really good products! I love Benetint and Theyre Real!

June 22, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAubrey

Wow congratulations to Paulina and Maggie! Clinique stuff are amazing!!! You will enjoy them for sure ;) I'm super envious but you girls deserve it! Thanks to Liz for being so generous.

June 24, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterroanmic

Cool giveaways! You're so generous! =)

June 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPauline

i can say i've been an avid follower of your blog ms. liz, but i havent had the courage to post and comment on your blogs, mostly because i'm more comfortable reading other peoples comments than making my own. most of the beauty products that i've purchased like bobbi brown skin foundation mineral make up/ long wear cream shadow in shore, fairy drops bb cream and benefit brow zings are because of your great reviews and recommendations, and i would like to thank you for that. we have similar skin color and facial features that's why i rely on your blog for great beauty finds.i hope you dont stop blogging ever! =)

July 26, 2013 | Unregistered Commentercheng

wow these are great giveaways! i checked out the new benefit store in moa today and there were a lot of people checking out all their stuff, i really wanted to try out the porefessional but was not able to because of the crowd huhu. reading your blog articles really make me updated on the latest products, i even checked out the hervana blush because of your top 5 blushes article. in the end, i chose to buy the bobbi brown pot rouge pale pink, also one of your recommendations :)

i really love reading your blog, any skincare or beauty item that i need a review of, i immediately check out your blog and woah there's always sure to be a review! your blog is so complete that i don't usually check other reviews anymore. lately, most of the items i have bought are from your recommendations. your blog is really great, hope you keep on helping more people with your expert tips and beauty advice!
