The Lipstick Confidential Game: Guess how many I have and win...lipsticks!

One of you gals asked me how I decide on what lipstick to wear whenever I go out, considering all the colors I'm lucky to have. It's pretty easy, actually - I just put on whatever I haven't reviewed and swatched yet! As a beauty blogger I'm fortunate to have access to the latest releases so I usually get packages from brands everyday. ^_^ It's fun, but also confusing sometimes. It's difficult to keep track of what I have if I don't keep them in sight always.

Anyway, it's time for yet another giveaway! This is the third time I've held a contest like this, if I remember correctly. Just guess how many lipsticks I have currently and you'll get a chance to win some brand new colors. Simply follow Rafflecopter app below by Tweeting your guess and I'll choose the number closest to the actual number. If you guess the exact number then good for you. You're awesome.

Project Vanity x pureDKNY Drop of Rose Contest: P30,000 worth of prizes!

The rose has symbolized many things through the centuries - eternal love, secrecy, unity, and even the turmoil of revolution. For you, a rose might have a more personal meaning. It may not even be something that you consciously choose; but when you enjoy a rose, you will forever be reminded of that soft first kiss or a memorable evening that could have happened years ago but is still fresh on your mind today.

That is the beauty of flowers. That's why we try to preserve them no matter how fleeting their lifespans are.

That said, DKNY has finally bottled their own version of this romantic flower's scent. Called pureDKNY Drop of Rose, they have created something akin to a garden full of blooming roses, with verdant green notes growing in the background as the fragrance deepens. If you love the pureDKNY line or just a fan of roses, this is something you must sniff stat! 

So! I have an exciting bit of news. DKNY has chosen Project Vanity to host a massive contest for their newest fragrance. We are giving away P30,000 worth of prizes to the lucky person who can make a creative, romantic video that shows the pureDKNY Rose's elegance and timelessness.

Here are the mechanics!

Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap + Giveaway

What makes a good soap? For me, it has to be moisturizing with a creamy lather. It has to smell nice - never obnoxious, never chemical-y. If it has a few promised skincare benefits then great, but I'm not going to expect more than smooth and soft skin after a bath! (That's not too much to ask right?)

So lately I've been using this new bar called the Beauty and Bright Moringa Soap (P114). I love it because it fits all my qualifications for a good soap. It smells like this old peppermint and oatmeal soap I used to steal from my mom's bathroom, and that alone scores it extra points! It's been more than half a decade since I used that one. :P Other than the smell, the Moringa Soap lathers up nicely and does not leave my skin feeling tight after a shower.

Its main active ingredients are papaya enzymes, moringa extract, and kojic acid. Hmm, did I notice any lightening? I've been using the soap for almost three weeks now and I have noticed that my skin is more even somehow.

It's raining facials, Week 2: CACI 6750 x Project Vanity Giveaway

Hi guys! The folks at CACI 6750 have chosen the two winners who will get to try the Glow and Defy Facial for free! They are Jas Lucero and Raych Ramos. Congrats guys! I will be emailing you shortly.


For the second and final week of my CACI giveaway, we will choose three winners who will receive the Refresh Facial.

The Refresh Facial is a great way to sample the MD Dermatics products as it relies fully on them and doesn't use a machine. First is cleansing, using C-Cleanse for oily and acne prone skin, Gentle Wash for dry and sensitive skin. Next is the facial massage, followed by the Soothing Splash toner (for all skin types). After this, we use PeelPlus to gently exfoliate the skin. After exfoliation comes the masque - Cucumber gel masque to sooth and calm those with acne or inflammation, Collagen Nutrient masque for those with anti-aging concerns. So basically it's a facial that's customized per patient based on skin type and skin concern. The final step is to moisturize: oxygen therapy cream for those with oily skin and ultra skin revitalizer for those with dry skin or daycalm soothing moisturizer. 

Here are the super easy contest mechanics!

  1. FACEBOOK ENTRIES: Like CACI 6750 on Facebook. Make sure to leave a message on their Wall just saying hi and that you got there via Project Vanity! (So we know that you did like the page ;P )
  2. TWITTER ENTRIES: Follow me on Twitter (@lizlan). Tweet "Want skin that glows? Join this #projectvanity contest to win a fab facial from @lizlan"

It's raining facials: CACI 7650 x Project Vanity Giveaway (Week 1)

You know how much I love the Glow Facial at CACI 6750. Now, you can get a chance to try a facial at CACI too! I'm giving away five facials to five lucky winners in the next two weeks. Oh, these five girls will have such fab skin for the string of holiday parties ahead! CACI facials are super gentle (no pricking and scrubbing) and will really make the face glow. 


For this week, there will be two winners who will receive a Glow and Defy Facial worth P2,000
Glow and Defy begins with cleansing, toning and facial massage. Then, using the CACI Ultra machine's handpiece which contains ceramic and quartz pieces, bacteria and dead skin cells are dislodged without any visible peeling. This allows for a deeper cleanse and better absorption of the MD Dermatics products. After the ultrasonic handpiece is the masque. After this, using the same handpiece, MD Dermatics active correction products are applied (PureLight and RevitaPlus Brightener for Glow, C10 and Wrinkle Diffuser serums for Defy and c5 for under the eye). With the handpiece set to a certain frequency, these products are absorbed much more efficiently into the skin. After the active correction ingredients comes the moisturizer. 

Here are the super easy contest mechanics!

My colorblocked look, plus win tickets to the L'Oreal show at the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012!

Color blocking remains as one of the biggest trends this 2012. Before, there were rules on which color goes with what but now, everything goes! That is incredibly fun, if you ask me. I think that everyone should express themselves with something as basic and enduring as color.

I've done several colorful looks before, but here's the most recent one I wore last Sunday. You'll see the bright iridescent green eyeshadow matched with an electric purple eyeliner and a reddish gloss. I decided to keep the cheeks and lips understated since I was just off to the mall, but if I were going to an event, I would probably go for a bright pink lip!

PRO TIP: When doing colorful eyes and lips, it's best to leave your cheeks bare. Contour with an apricot blush or bronzer to get glowing skin that doesn't compete with the colors you already have on. Here I used the L'Oreal True Match Blush in Golden Apricot - I love it! This blush really complemented my Pinay skin without looking overdone.

Okay, so here's the contest part: L'Oreal Paris has partnered with Project Vanity to bring FIVE readers to Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012!
