I won! Lancome’s Blush Subtil Rose: My story

If you follow Lancome Malaysia’s page on Facebook, you’d notice they had a “Lancôme Blush Subtil Rose – Sharing Your Unforgetta​ble Blushing Moment” contest. 5 winners will be chosen and they are entitled to receive Lancôme Blush Subtil Rose worth RM120.00. I thought it would be fun, so I submitted my story on Septeber 28, without expecting anything! Just yesterday evening, I received an email from Lancome, saying I was one of the top 5 winners! Yay!

It will take about 2 weeks for the gift to reach me, so I took this photo from Lancome’s contest page on Facebook. ParisB from My Women Stuff did a review on this blush. Go check it out if you’re interested. <click here>

 

Many of you commented on my Facebook page and Twitter that you wanted to read the story. So here it is!

I was the guest speaker of a non-profit organisation of the week. My then boyfriend who was also my childhood sweetheart invited me to be the guest speaker at the last minute because they couldn’t get one to fill the spot. I agreed – the things I do for him! I have not been to any of the talks before, and there were more than 30 professional established males in their own right in the audience. Naturally, I was intimidated and nervous, being the only female and youngest of the lot.

There was video recording, which I thought was the norm, and I was formerly introduced to the members before giving the speech. As all speeches go, there’d be a Q&A; session at the end, and trust me, those questions were tough. Then, came the very unexpected last question.

My boyfriend got down to his knee in front of everyone, opened the jewellery box containing a gorgeous clear sparkly blinding diamond ring, and asked, “Will you marry me?”

I was so completely stunned and embarrassed that I stood there frozen, unable to answer! All of those stern looking men started beaming, and cheering, “Marry him! Marry him!” and I heard someone yell “Say YES!”. So I did… I was blushing from the ends of my hair to my little toes and again at my wedding dinner when the video was played. Even until now, happily married for 5 years with 2 beautiful girls, I could never forget it. Neither did they =)

 

Yup, that was it. I don’t know which one of the blushes I’m getting, but I’ll be sure to update you once I receive it 😉 Hope you enjoyed the story too!

    Awww… that is such a heart melting story!!! Your Q&A will never be the same from then on! :p And I will remember your story as well! 😀

    p/s: I was reading your post on tips to apply a bright blush with RT stippling brush… and it led me to this! 😀 Very good “You might like these too” recommendation! 😀
