Tag Archives: the face shop kim hyun joong

hey i’m back!  you may have heard that the face shop is having a top girl contest.  this is it.  the below pic is actually the set rules given by the face shop, international.  then i suppose each country that have the face shop are given the freedom to have consolation prizes for those who didn’t win.

source – here

the set rules for the face shop philippines is below:

so no where is it written in the philippine version that the top girl chosen by the face shop philippines will get to meet leader and the other endorser, kung sino man yun, YET.  when it’s clear in the international rules that the top girl will get the chance to meet hyun joong.

this TOP GIRL thing is a beauty contest.  a beauty contest sans the swim suit and evening gown competition.  i have no real stand on beauty contests.  i respect the ladies that join.  from Imelda Romualdez Marcos to Oprah Winfrey, yes, they were beauty queens.  the former became our first lady the latter used her winnings for her scholarships and college tuition.  regardless, how people say beauty contests are demeaning to women, ultimately it is up to the woman who joins if she will be affected in being objectified.  women will always have a way to either not get affected and or use it to their advantage.

I am not going to even attempt in joining this.  I was advised that the age limit is 35.  that’s where i have to raise my brow.  really age limit?  oh well, it’s their call and we have to respect that, cuz hey, they didn’t have to come up with a top three and top ten on top of having a top girl.  and with that said, before you spend your 500 bucks, ask and confirm this age limit thing with the store clerks FIRST.

if any of you know me, if any of you actually read this blog, then you’d know by now i’m not the kind of person who deals with stress.  the only kind of stress i am ever willing to deal with is to do well at work because if i do well at work i will be able to provide for my dad and mom and if i do well at work i will get lots excess thereafter, and i would be able to provide for my two hobbies, kpop and korean cosmetics.

i will not attempt to even clarify this age limit thing.  the fact that one branch manager says there is a limit is enough for me to turn around.  i will also not entertain any notion or suggestion to join. so some or just one ‘triple s’ should put her dirty and malicious mind at ease that i have no connection to the face shop philippines.

so it comes down to this.  i will continue to support kim hyun joong, regardless of brand he endorses, that means i will continue to support the face shop.  i will continue.  if there are any events that the face shop will be doing, i will do my best to be apart of it try and report about it.  this also means that i will continue reviewing the face shop products since it is after all, the face shop is Korean.

I will always have this, this dti supervised raffle from the face shop philippines that i won with the last raffle ticket i purchased with my own money.

a few updates:

  1. i ordered a couple of things from my suki an elisha coy snail cream and a peach sake bb cream,  i also bought a couple of things from etude house, tony moly, and skin food, taking advantage of their sale this weekend.  but my big purchase went to lunasol this afternoon.
  2. i will be uploading a massive haul video, hopefully this weekend, excluding the stuff i purchased today and yesterday.
  3. my next goal is to purchase a lunasol foundation and to buy the latest laneige lipstick line shown below 
  4. after that, meaning after april, i will no longer hoard.  i believe i have enough from my previous haul video and the one i am uploading tomorrow for many many reviews to come
  5. having said this, i will not be spending on cosmetics for a while.  a cosmetics shopping fasting now commences.  and no, this isn’t my sacrifice for the Lenten season.  
  6. i am now going to save up for a trip to south korea.  meaning i’d rather work hard for my own money to go to south korea.  at dun mag shopping ng bongelz! oh ha ano akala nyo hahaha seryuz much? bwahahaha, lech bawal sa kin yun.
  7. any new haulage will be looties from events if i am still invited LOL if not eh well shrug hahaha 
good luck to the ladies who are thinking of joining this contest in the Philippines and around Asia.

Breathing in some positivity after having had 2 [i find to be] odd online conversations on facebook, this 3rd repartee is what many of us have been waiting for since HyunJoong became The Face Shop’s new endorser.  and they do say the third time is the charm, woohoo.

ok my previous entry says that i was told by one of one of our tsph admins that she was told that the items such as posters and folders will not make it in time for this year’s kpop con on December 20, 2010 at the PICC.  but that was a week ago and there could have been changes and by some miracle the face shop philippines does bring the items in time and have ironed out their dealings with the organizers of the kpop con. and today i was answered a question as to when kim hyun joong’s posters will be given out for their promo.


as per the conversation above it shows that this facebook account claims that the promo for the free kim hyun joong poster will begin this week on november 24 after their current promo, here is done:


well the pictures below are just the Christmas promo pix from the face shop korea.




it’s a wish


that these


would be given out instead


but most likely it will be this kind of poster held by HyunJoong that will be given out.


as per the same conversation with the LoveTFSPhil facebook account there will also be tumblers given away as a promo from Dec1 til the end of the month(year).  grabe, tapos na ang 2010, just like that! la lang random comment.

MY INFORMATION IS ONLY ABOUT A WEEK APART.  so before you start buying anything starting on the 24th of November, i suggest you make it clear with the face shop store managers of the face shop branches you go to that there will be posters at the kpop con.  and save you a trip and timing.
ALSO DON’T LOOSE your receipts as they will be used to redeem the poster(s) at the  KPOP Con at the PICC on December 11, 2010.
