A giveaway because I love you...

...and since one of my love languages is buying people shit {in so many words},
I found this giveaway to be necessary.
Also, I kind of feel bad that I'm going to be gone an entire week in Korea
with little to no access for blogging.

So this is my way of saying don't forget about me.
Accept my free gifts and just love me.
{Kidding............but not really?}

Anyway, I feel as though it's imperative to share a little bit of a back story
on how I came to pick these items to give one of you lovely peeps.


A few months ago, I was just a little ol' Asian girl with very short eyelashes.
I would look at girls with lushes lashes, feel a pang in my gut,
and a tear to my non-eyelashed eye.

So I did what any vain individual in this situation would do.
I purchased LiLash, which is basically the "over the counter" version of Latisse.
It promised that in just 90 days,
my lashes would grow to long, beautiful lengths "just like magic!"

Well, grow they did.
But that's not all, folks!
Along with the "long, beautiful length,"
I was given red and painfully sensitive eyes.
What a deal, right?!

Anyway, you'd think that would have enticed me to stop using their product.
But, no.
With a little concealer, the redness was covered right up!
Pain is beauty. Beauty is pain.

You're probably wondering what any of this actually has to do with this giveaway.
Well let me tell you.
Though my eyelashes did grow,
it wasn't until I found the perfect mascara to truly accentuate the growth.
I came across Benefit's "They're Real" mascara and instantly fell in love.

Here is the before and after:

So you see, my dear friends,
this is what I want to extend to you.
Not the redness and pain,
but this magical mascara that will work wonders no matter how long your lashes are.

And also, because I'm feeling extra generous,
I thought it'd be great to throw in a few other of my favorite things I'm coveting at the moment.


I'm obsessed with my EOS lip balm.
Not only does it keep my lips nice and moist,
but I really love the little egg shape it comes in.
It looks like a little penis mushroom head. And how could you not be fond of that?

And lastly, I recently came across a new Essie color called "Turquoise & Caicos"
and I've come to find that I'm quite fond of it
and I think it's a great color for this Spring/Fall season.
In fact, I'm wearing it right now and plan to keep it for my entire trip.

So there you have it.
These are my three favorite beauty products that I think everyone should have.
And now here's your chance!
{Only mandatory entry is to follow on GFC!

I'll miss you all dearly while I'm galavanting across Korea, 
but have no fear.
Mishi shall return soon.
