My most favorite of all is your review regarding Etude House Drawing Eyebrow. Because of this I started to be vain in doing my eyebrow almost every single day! It was also the start of learning how to do my eyebrow even eyebrows of my sisters and mother (even wanted to make my husbands eyebrow too. haha!). Thanks to your blog I became more open to makeups and making myself more presentable to the world. And to you! Happy Anniversary! I may or may not win in this I'm still a follower (Been an avid follower since 2012 when my sister went to your makeup class. Not a makeup fanatic that time.)

My favorite post of yours is the one that you answered my question about my darker nose than the rest of my face. I have been dealing with that since highschool and I'm not sure who to ask about that. As an avid reader of your blog, I asked you that and glad you considered it as a valid question. :) I got the answers more than what I needed and I'm really happy with that. Now I'm applying the tips you mentioned there to keep my nose same as my face. :) Happy anniversary and thank you. :)

I've read so much, it's hard to keep track! lol It's gonna be... Etude House Play 101. It's the combination of an interesting product and a neat demo. Plus the swatches (thin and thick swatches) give a better sense of the full color. It took me some time to choose my own shades, though I got ones for eyes lang muna. I've got too many lip and cheek products already!

I learned alot through that post infact this link has been bookmarked in my browser and serves as my fitspiration and motivation when i'm not seeing any difference on the weighing scale. In fact i like all you fitness post and wish you would post more. 

I know most means just 1 one post but i cant decide what link to choose so im also including two more :) -i was the one who asked this question and i'm so glad that you answered my question in detail. Those tips and product recommendation were really helpful and I live by them until now. Thank you for that Martha. The care and openess you have with your readers make TBJ not just a one dimensional web page (article) but it speaks to us in a way that we can understand and relate to what you are saying.

Lastly, - i am not comfortable in my eyeshadow application, but this guide makes it such a breeze. i really liked how through and detailed this guide is making it easily for noobs to follow. I still refer to this until now hehehe :)

i'm a silent reader but TBJ is my tambayan. I still refer to some of your old post until now. Also I learned alot from the Makeup workshop you've led for Shiseido in which you taught us how to handle and flaunt the tricky and tacky blue eyeshadow and you also gave tips on contouring and how you do your brows :)

I know you said that we should be specific but my favorite posts are the beginner makeup series? Should I call that a series? XD I started reading your blog because of it and I go back to it every now and then :D


What's your most favorite post by The Beauty Junkee?:

My favorite post would be this -

I really enjoy your beauty, fashion and food recommendations, but your entries about fitness surely take the cake. It's very inspiring to see you working hard to achieve the strong body that you want. I've been falling in and out of my fitness goal, and with my impatience, I sometimes think that nothing will change no matter how hard I try. This specific post reminded me that everything does not happen overnight and that if ever I get bored, I can always try something different and new to keep things interesting. It also reminded me to keep my eyes on the prize and to not let any temptations or bouts of laziness to get in the way.

Thank you for being the amazing and awesome person that you are :) Happy 6th Anniversary to your blog!

My most favorite post of yours was about the Aztec Healing Clay Mask Review. I think this was my most memorable post because this prompted me to read your blog every single day. I haven't stopped since. Your review about it made me go immediately to my nearest Healthy Options Store and buy it. I still use it up to this day. Ever since then I've valued your opinion and I make sure to check if you have a review on a certain product before I proceed on buying it. Thank you! :)

I know it's a dated post, but I love your review on the Givenchy Pandora Medium in Aube + Spot a Fake Givenchy Pandora on December 10, 2014. It's a very gorgeous bag. I like how you indicated ways to determine authenticity of the bag by its even stitching, how the handle looks like, even the material of the rings that hold the bag handle , even mentioning how the interior of the bag looks like.I also like the photos that are included in the caption. I hope you can also add articles on health because it's also key to being beautiful.

One of your posts that struck me most is entitled "What A Year!" You published it on January 12, 2015. Recently, my money was stolen by someone. It wasn't just a couple of bucks but more like a hundred thousand. I saved and worked hard for that and for it to be taken away by someone I trusted just hurts a lot... until today. He returned only a part of the money but most of it remained with him. Anyway, I liked your reflections #1 and #2 wherein your said that even if one is intelligent, they are not immune to the evil behaviors of others and that the most important is to not allow them to take away your values. Next is finding peace in forgiveness. I find it hard to forgive but I'm really trying and this post reminds me to keep trying. Thanks so much Martha and have a blessed year!

My favorite post is HOW TO: Fix Your Brows At Home Under 10 Minutes!( 

Eyebrow is such a problem for me not until I read your blog on How To. This was such a great help for me especially when I go to work. Before i used to ask my sister to fix my brows for me whenever I go out and i know its such a hassle for her. So when I found your blog it made me the happiest person on earth :) now i can fix my own eyebrows and just go out without putting on too much makeup and let my eyebrows shine:) thank you!!!looking forward to read more How To tips :)

My favorite Post will be Fan Mail Friday: Life Span of Makeups

Hi Ms. Martha first of all i want to greet you and your blog a happy happy anniversary! more power to you and continue to be an inspiration to all of us. I've been a silent reader of yours since 2011. this is only the second time that i will be joining your give away, the first time when i was still in the philippines and i think it was your first major anniversary give away.

Your fan mail fridays are really informative and i love reading the advice you give to your readers it really helps us tackles our issues and your answers really feels like you want to help us the best you can even if you dont know us personally. So in behalf of your other readers THANK YOU, we really appreciate it. SO out of all your fan mail fridays my favourite will be the one about the life span of the make ups. i mean i really thought that we can use our make ups as long as we have it or as long as we hit the pan. i am guilty of keeping make up past their expiration dates, well until i read your post about it. that post made me realize that yeah, it make sense because these are the things that we put on our faces all the time and that each and everyone of us should be aware of the cons of using expired make ups, that we have to take care and be wary of the things we put on our face because after all it is the face the people first see. again happy anniversary and more success to you and your blog.

TO THE WINNERS: I will email everyone this Saturday regarding the venue and time of the pick-up, plus other instructions. Please respond within 5 days from the time I sent out the email. Otherwise, I will choose new winners.

Reminding the winners once again of the mechanics:

For Metro Manila winners: Metro Manila winners should claim their prizes from me ,personally. Time, date, and venue will be announced in the email notification. If you fail to meet me on the scheduled date, I can give you another chance. If you still can’t make it, I will draw another winner. I swear, your travel will be well worth!
