MODE: Oneegyaru ~ Thankyou Tom & Sakie of Exotic Japan

Last June 16-17, Tom of Exotic Japan held a very fun giveaway.
And.... I won grand price!!! This was definitely a first for me since I am not the type of person who wins anything by chance.. 
Oh hello Random.org - Yeah, I hate you, like seriously. :p
There was one time in my life where my class in college had drawn lots and everyone but me won something. :3 So, I'm pretty much used to not winning. X___x  LOL! Imagine ho shocked I was when Tom emailed me. I was like, WHOOOOAAAA! O.O
The original price were MOE candies. :3 But since Tom knew I liked makeup he asked if I wanted to keep the candies or a candy doll blush.
Of course I chose the candy doll blush! But he surprised me by sending the two items. It was soooo generous of him to do so!

So, as promised I have taken photos of me with the blush on. >o<"

Again, my camera refuses to work with me. I was trying to take the photos with natural lighting but LOL! they came out uneven. I'm still going to post everything though. 

So here's the package which arrived today when I was emailing Tom. LOL! We were both getting worried that a fat cross dressing custom officer might have taken fancy of the MOE candies. >o<"

The package looks like it's pretty been beat up. >o<" Good thing there was a soft padding inside. 
Here's what's inside - Candy Doll blush in Strawberry Pink and MOE candies


First, the Moe candies. :3 It's ichigo/strawberry flavored. My youngest sister has taken the liberty to open this and start eating it while I was opening the blush. Little sisters are just sooooooo cute, right?
The packaging is also soooooo cute!

Here's the popular Candy Doll Blush in Strawberry Pink

It's soooo pretty!! The packaging is so small but don't let that fool you just one swipe of this baby is gonna deliver a lot of color. Don't let the color scare you too. It's wearable. :3
Swatches - It's so pigmented! I don't know why the camera wouldn't pick the color up. :o/ But it's really pigmented IRL. It's very creamy and feels nice to touch. ~Sigh
Just one swipe is enough. It's also kind of shimmery and isn't matte but I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Cam whoring!!! Please excuse the uneven lighting. I seriously don't look like a panda IRL. O.o Plus my skin has broken out since last week because it's that time of the month and I'm very stressed. :o/

Face: Etude House Dr. Oil Solution Shine free dual primer, Revlon PhotoReady 004 Nude, MAC Studio Fix NC 30 and
MAC concealer in NC25
Eyes: Etude House Drawing Eye Brow, Etude House Tear Drop Liner, Etude House cream eyeshadow and dark brown eyeshadow, Prestige Biggest Lashes in Black and Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in Black
Lips: HNN in peppermint, MAC to the beach in Splashing Lip glass and Etude House Dear Darling Glass




Errr... No, my nose isn't that big either LOL! >,<
I am very happy! WEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ^o^ 
Ok, sorry for the picture overload. I understand it must be tiring to see my face over and over again. Hahaha!

To Tom and Sakie-
I heart you both! 

Please visit their blog, Exotic Japan - Tom's a great photographer and you'd be amazed at the photos of the sights and things on their blog. I remember being drawn to it because of all the yummy food pictures! It was also in their blog that I discovered that Wasabi flavored Kit-Kat's exist. O.o I think Sakie is currently busy but she's also very nice.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
Ja-neh.. ^_^

xxx,
Sugar

Sakie and Thomas Gantz said...

That's so sad that you had never won a prize before, and especially sad that everyone in your class got a prize except you that time. So I'm very glad that you won this contest. :-). From now on, I'm sure you will win at many things :-)

It is a relief that both prizes FINALLY arrived in one piece, and am even more glad that you like the blush and candy. :-) I like the first and the last photos the best. You look cute, and that blush suits you. Thanks for the photo of your handwritten thank you. The angels on the stationary are very cute. :-) your description of the blush is very useful for the girls reading your blog, I'm sure. And thanks for the kind final paragraph. I hope you get a lot of good use from the blush. I'm sure the candy will be gone soon, though. :-)

Bea said...
