Exclusive Gift with Purchase from shu uemura for Temptalia Readers!

In honor of the 2012 Editor’s Choice Awards, where shu uemura won for Best Cleansing Oil and Best Eyelash Curler, shu uemura has put together a special promotion. With any $65 purchase, you’ll receive both products in a miniature size so you can try two of my favorite shu uemura products–both products I’ve used over the years and have repurchased. Use the code TEMPTALIA at checkout, valid 1/23 through 1/27 at shu uemura.

Discussion and debate are highly encouraged, and we expect community members to participate respectfully. When asking a question, please check the FAQ section (above) for information about purchasing, price, dupes, and the like. If you have general feedback or need technical support, please contact us.

    Wow – what a great compliment for your work, Christine. I see this as a wonderful recognition of your blog – and it is well deserved! And of course, it is also a nice thing for us.. <3 Susanne

    That’s a great gift, you shouldve awarded them more categories hahha! No but seriously, it is so cool that you are being recognized by Shu for your awards

    I don’t understand the mini eyelash curler, if its smaller it won’t cover all of the eylashes when you try to curl them will it….? so we must curl by parts? hahaha i don’t get it someone please explain this to me

    I hated the mini eyelash curler! It just dented my eyelashes and it was super difficult to use. The curler is flat and not curved at all. I thought I could use it for my outer lashes because they’re the most difficult to curl. Well it didn’t work. I returned it back when Sephora still carried Shu Uemura. Oh, and I’m Asian with small eyes lol.

  8. It is nice to be recognized and it is good Shu Uemura is trying to make a recognition….but really, small versions really dont compensate….either provide with the full size or dont provide…since you still have to buy $65.00 worth of stuff.

    • It’s a GWP – from my understanding, most GWPs are mini-sizes so you can try. It’s consistent with other offers shu have done in the past (like deluxe sampling, etc.) and other GWP offers I’ve seen from other brands :) I think the value of the GWP is approximately $25? or so – it’s about $10 worth of the cleansing oil and the mini curler used to be sold on its own for $15. I don’t think anyone would spend $65 just so they could get these – you could have just bought both products outright – but it’s an extra if you do purchase or had been planning to purchase from shu. HTH!

    The code did not work for me. I had over $65 in my cart. “We’re sorry, but the promotion code you have entered is invalid, has sold out or expired. Please enter a valid promotion code.”

  10. Wow that is so awesome! I am so proud to be apart of Temptalia’s community. Discovering this blog really changed the way I feel about makeup and was a life changer. Christine, I really appreciate you and all your hard work! You are just so amazing :)

    This is awesome! Not just because of the promotion but because your website is THAT highly regarded for Shu Uemura to collab with you! Great work & keep it up, Christine :D

    MINI EYELASH CURLER DID NOT WORK FOR ME AT ALL.
    I had it long time ago. Bought it together with the regular Shue curler when they were discontinuing Shue Uemura from US (“Sephora”).

  13. hey christine!
    congratulations :)

    I’m in aus and was about to re purchase my cleansing oil and moisturiser (both from Shu absouloutely brilliant products) but decided to get my friend in the US to ship down for me as I want to support Temptalia.

    once again congratulations :)

    Congratulations. Hopefully the Temptalia promotion code will attract and bring more awareness for Shu Uemura in the US.

    I love the cleansing oils and the GWP offers that include them. They are a great size for traveling.

    Just wanted to say Thank You!! I received an email from Shu Uemura this afternoon and have already placed an order. In addition to the 2-pc mini gift set in your honor, I also got a free deluxe sample.
