Now onto everyone's most- awaited part: the winners of my 5th anniversary giveaway! 

I couldn't put into words how thankful I am for the overflowing love and support that I have received for this giveaway. I may not be able to choose everyone as winners (If I could I would believe me!) so I'm just sending all the participants good vibes, wishes of great health, overflowing love and success in your lives this year! :)


The Oily Bible posts are really the best! But if I have to choose which post is my most favorite out of the three, it's definitely the part 1 where you talked about skin care. I've been suffering from acne and super oily skin since college. And this post helped me find my HG facial cleanser and have been using it religiously since then (Yves Rocher Pure System Daily Exfoliating Cleanser). I tried some of your suggestions in your post and most of them are great products. It's just that the Yves Rocher one was the most effective on my face in controlling oil and acne. Now, you'll see a HUGE difference on my face from before I used the product. Thanks a lot for narrowing down the products for your readers to try. I'm always looking forward to your posts, whether it be OOTD, favorites, and reviews. I know you'll never get tired of writing because I see your passion in sharing your thoughts and blogging. Happy 5th Anniversary, Martha dear! More blogging years and blessings to come! You deserve all of these! God speed!


Answer to the question "What's your most favorite post by The Beauty Junkee?": that would be the delaying gratification and saving before splurging. It serves as my motivation to start saving and stops me from impulse buying. Now, whenerver I want something, i always tell myself: "remember Delaying Gratification? (i'm talking about that post and not just the word itself) y'know it's more fulfilling if you wait and save" and that usually works. :)


I like your makeup reviews, you are the reason why i started my mine beautyhauls in IG hehehe, the best was the one you posted na how to identify fake MAC products because of you I knew na one of the online seller was selling a fake mac makeup products though it looked like it was legit. Happy 5th anniversary again Martha! we are here to support you all the way... lotz of love XOXO


One of the earliest articles on TBJ that I read is this guide on how to build a makeup kit. I found this guide to be very useful to a total beginner like me (well, years ago at least!). It gave me a great focus, and I wish I'd read something like this back when I was just a teen. It is articles like this that are pretty useful and helpful, and maybe it would have given me courage to start out with makeup a lot earlier!


Well, Hi Martha? Aside from you inspire me to get back to the gym again, I really love your bag collections, but, most importantly, the post on how to authenticate Longchamp Le Pliage for I am also a bagholic.You are a big help for me to avoid buying a waste. Happy 5th!


My favorite post by The Beauty Junkee would be the Fan Mail Fridays: My Rule When It Comes to Splurging on Material Pleasures. This post really had a big impact on me because I’ve been becoming a bit of a shopaholic lately. After reading your post, it suddenly hit me that I must not forget to save a big portion of what I have earned. This is why your advice, which is the 50/50 Rule, is such a great help for me. I must really thank you Ms. Martha for sharing your financial tips with us. The main purpose why I read your blog is because of your beauty tips and knowledge, but knowing that I also get to read useful life knowledge on how to handle money matters and other topics that help us take better care of our health and body, is more reason for me to be a loyal supporter of your blog. Happy 5th anniversary and more power to The Beauty Junkee!!!


My favorite is the Basic Makeup With The Beauty Junkee. I love how it links to all the makeup posts that I need to better apply makeup. I do not have any professional training, but through this kind of posts, I am able to try out different techniques on myself. It is very helpful to all makeup addicts like me.


I have been an anonymous reader for three years now, comments once in a while, but I am always excited with makeup related posts. What I really like was the Hit List 2013 post. It presented brands that I dream of having (some I already have) but still wants them. Its the ultimate list of makeup especially for morena girls like us. I also come back to the basic makeup that gave ideas for a commuter, for the air-conditioned student and (I forgot the other one..means these two had great impact on me). I always discover what's new in store here in the Ph. I never experienced buying not-so-good makeup because of your blog. This is also my third time joining your Anniversarry giveaway. Happy Aniversary, Ms. Martha and I wish you the best of luck, health and longer staying power in the blogging community.


I thought it's really brave and admirable of you to write about the truth behind slimming pills. It can't be stressed enough that change indeed does not happen overnight, be it on losing weight or in other aspects of life. :P Hence I appreciate that you've done quite a thorough research and furthermore shared your personal storied even. Your blog is very informative and I look forward to more of your posts :D


I've been your avid reader since I discovered makeup and skincare (yes I'm that late bloomer haha) about 3 years ago (or more) I guess :) and since that, I became your fan especially on how you write and express your thoughts on your blog. 

Back to the question on now my favorite post of yours, or should I say the post that really gotten my attention is entitled "Goodbye Blogging".. Yeah from the title itself, it really shocked the hell out of me haha! I was like WWHHY?? (are you going to get married? :p) and then I read the entire post, aaahhh.. hehe. I really admire you Ms. Martha, you blog not because of any benefits it will give you but to give your readers daily dose of informative and inspirational thoughts despite of your VERY BUSY schedule.. I also appreciate your feelings there with regards to your boyfriend whenever you're on a date (kinda relate) hehe. Yes it's a very good decision of yours to live your life the way you aren't going to stress yourself so that you also bring good vibes to us. No matter how much we love to do a thing, we also need to love ourselves so we can do it with full happiness. 

"Too much love will kill you",.. 

All I can say is that I'm HAPPY I found you and your blog (even if it's just remote) It feels like I have a friend who's always there to give advice. (FAN MAIL FRIDAYS) 

Once again, Happy Anniversary Ms. Martha! MORE YEARS of blogging to come! :)


#Fitspiration. I so love this post (and other fanmails)!

I have loved every post of yours about brows and my all-time favorite is the BROWS 101. If I have 5 minutes to do my make up, I'd gladly take 2 for my brows. I have been seriously addicted to grooming and shaping them. I feel barenaked when I don't groom them. They really frame the face, as for me it lessens the appearance of my huge forehead. Through that, I have learned that I shouldn't over pluck or shave because fuller brows makes me look younger. And I have influenced my mom to try grooming her brows even if they are spares. One day, she groomed and shaped them and WOW! It really does makes a difference, made my mom look younger. I might seem brow-addicted when I talk bout brows, that BROWS 101 post really changed how I look at the frames of the face. Until now, I still go back to that post whenever I need to refresh my memory. And might I just add that I love the FMF: 5 awesome waterproof brow products to fill in brows. I need to stop talking about brows, errrr.. ;))

p.s... Happy anniversary Ms. M... More years to TBJ.. woot! ;)

To all the winners, I will email you this week regarding how you can claim your prize. :)

Congratulations to everyone and let's all look forward to The Beauty Junkee's 6th Year! Any suggestions on what you want me to hold for you guys on my 6th blog anniversary? :)
