A Touch of Blusher Sixth Anniversary 2012 1(Hello cupcakes!)


My blog is six years old today!

This year, I have experienced some ups and downs in my personal life, and I was not able to post in some earlier parts of this year. However, blogging has proven to be a therapeutic constant for me and the way I view blogging has taken on a new dimension.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for reading my blog. Your ongoing support means a lot to me.

Once again, let’s take a look back at the last 12 months of A Touch of Blusher:


November 2011: I added a limited-edition Lunasol blusher to my stash.

December: I presented another Foundation Face-Off.

January 2012: My green-toned eyeshadow phase continued.

February: Another season, another Coffret d’Or palette.

March: RMK celebrated its 15th anniversary.

April: More lovely Paul & Joe items were added to my collection.

May: I started the Stash Debut 2012 series.

June: A new era for Lavshuca.

July: I finally got to try an eyeshadow palette from Muji.

August: This year saw the launch of Astalift in the UK.

September: Jill Stuart’s new Relax bodycare range caught my attention.

October: Aube Couture has been a surprise hit for me this year.


Thank you all very much again. I will continue to bring you more news, more reviews, and more of my thoughts on beauty. Do stop by again soon!

Hello PJ!

Happy 6th Birthday to A Touch of Blusher, the very first beauty blog that introduced me to the wonderful world of makeup : )

Keep on writing, cheers!

Thank you very much! It is an honor for me to be the first one! :)

I shall keep on writing! :)

Congratulations on another year! I continue to follow your blog (I do remember you were among the first that I read regularly) and here’s to another year (and several more). I find your blog inspiring, especially to so after six years! The road of beauty blogging is not as easy as it looks!


PJ Sunday, November 11, 2012

Hi Ebontien,

Thank you very much for following my blog over the years. As I am sure you know, maintaining a blog can be quite time-consuming. I am certainly tremendously grateful when my readers appreciate this, but, much more importantly, I hope that my readers still find my blog to be worth their time.

Many thanks once again! :)

Happy Anniversary PJ!

I can’t believe it’s been so long, the blog is officially over half a decade old! Even after all this time, it’s still a joy to read and when you were posting less, I certainly missed it (one of the few I miss). It’s strange, but it seems most of my favourite beauty blogs were started in 2006-7. It’s amazing that you can still do this consistently over so many years.

You introduced me to a whole other world of beauty I didn’t know about and I will continue reading so long as you keep posting!

P.S. the cupcakes look adorable!

Oh, I also forgot to add an important point to me.
I love the fact that you take the time to reply to every single comment, even without a question. It makes me feel that you do have respect for your readers and don’t take them for granted. That is very nice to see.

(Although I appreciate that some very high-volume bloggers can’t do this.)

Hi Leila,

Thank you very much! :)

Indeed, in the last couple of years, I am not really able to post as often as I did in the first few years. What I have been trying to do is to post less but do my best to continue posting regularly. I certainly hope I will be able to blog for a long time to come. :)

Nowadays, everyone is so busy and I really appreciate the fact that people are willing to spend their precious time reading my blog and posting comments. Reading comments like yours is one of the most rewarding things about blogging, and I definitely enjoy exchanging thoughts and ideas with my readers.

Thank you very much for being such a faithful reader of my blog!

P.S. The cupcakes tasted nice too. :)
