    The content is what i look for in a blog and also it should be regularly updated. Holy smokes! I wish to win!!! Happy anniversary again, Jaa!

  2. says: Meagan

    Great giveaway!

    In a blog I look for great photos, interesting mix of beauty brands and someone who posts regularly :)

  3. says: Violet

    What I look for in a blog is someone whose point of view comes through honestly, and fun to read content!

  4. says: Susana Dorado

    I like hearing about new things happening in beauty. I like both high end and drugstore cosmetics. Pictures are good and a plus is tutorials.

  5. says: pegg

    What a generous giveaway! I enjoy beauty blogs with good, clear photos of products and definitely swatches ON the person. Even if we don’t have the same coloring, it still gives good perspective. I love reading honest reviews, esp from bloggers I trust. Your blog definitely has all of the above.

    1. says: Jaa

      Hey Pegg! I wish in my earlier reviews I had the guts to show my face shots! It took me a while before I was brave enough to realize that it’s inevitable — if you have a makeup review blog, you have to have a face shot with the product on! :)

      Thank you for your kind comment and good luck!! :D

  6. says: Erin

    Hey Jaa, I tried to enter but it gave me errors on each attempt! You already know I love you and follow you on Social Media!

  7. says: Ellen Heitman

    Great photos are the #1 thing that make me come back again and again to a particular beauty blog. Yours are some of the best around! Thanks for the raffle!

    1. says: Carolyn

      Also, the most important thing I look for in a beauty blog is honest reviews! I really appreciate how honest and thorough your reviews are, Jaa!

  8. says: Cel

    Congrats Jaa! I wouldn’t have thought your blog was just 1 year old! Wishing you more success in the years to come, so please don’t ever quit blogging. You have the best photos and reviews. Okay, I’m going to try stop sounding like a kiss-ass now haha

    Anyways, THE most important thing I look for in a blog is honest opinions on the product they’re reviewing. The blogosphere is so saturated with blogs that are sponsored that it’s becoming difficult to find sincere reviews.

  10. says: Chermaine

    I look for honest, unbiased reviews on products (being sponsored is ok..!). Also, high quality photos + makeup looks done with products that have been reviewed will be awesome. Great blog btw, loving the clean look and feel of the layout :)

    happy anniversary!

  11. says: Jeannie

    Yay for the giveaway being open worldwide! The most important thing for me in a beauty blog is good photos, and I think you have the best macros I’ve ever seen! :)

  12. says: Kira

    Photographs are probably the first thing I look at especially with swatches, so the quality of photos is important! And I must say, yours are some of the best I’ve seen. It’s art!

  13. says: Jeena

    I look for thorough, informative reviews on products- accompanied by a variety of photos (i.e: images of the product itself, swatched on the skin, how it looks overall on the face, etc.)

  14. says: Kharisma N

    i always look for swatches! its definetely important because i always buy things online, since several products which beauty guru recommended isnt available in my country, Indonesia.

  15. says: Kharisma N

    Thanks for the giveaway..

    Happy anniversary Jaa! In a beauty blog, I look for great photos, face swatches, and a sense of humor :)

  17. says: Karina

    Super giveaway!!! Happy anniversary Jaa!!!

  19. says: GlossBerry

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway!
    what i look most in a beauty blog is high quality photos and unbiased review, which lucky for me, I found both here in this Blog! l

  20. says: Laura

    I’m still over the moon about winning your last giveaway, and as I own a few of these products already, I’m going to let others have a better chance in this one by not entering! But these are great products and you are so generous, Jaa! Good luck to everybody!

    1. says: Jaa

      Hey Laura! That’s so nice of you to stop by and comment! I’m glad you won my last giveaway because otherwise I wouldn’t have got to know you, my mini buddies! :D :D

  21. says: Rachel

    Thank you for the giveaway! I find that updated content and attention to details is very important when it comes to the blogs that I visit daily. I like to look at products from different angles and have as much information about it as possible.

  22. says: Rachel Runyan

    The most important thing I look for in a beauty blog would be product swatches and pictures with someone wearing the makeup. Lots of photos, in other words.

  23. says: Amanda

    I look for good quality photos, which you obviously have. I also look for decent grammar, which sounds snobby, but I find it so distracting when I’m reading and stumble across mistakes. It’s hard to take myself out of university student-mode, I guess!

    1. says: Jaa

      Hope I didn’t commit too many grammatical mistakes in my first year! ^_^” I always admire your impeccable writing skills, Amanda! :)

      And good luck!!

  24. says: Ana Carolina

    When it comes to blogs I look for something that makes it unique.. I think nowadays most blogs are all about swatches and reviews, and when I find ones with different content, like articles, discussions, and tips, they really catch my attention! And, obviously, honesty, which is probably the most important thing. :)

    1. says: Jaa

      Thank you for your suggestion, Ana! I’ll definitely keep in mind to try to do more than just swatches and reviews! Good luck!! :)

  25. says: Surso S.

    i dont really look for anything in a beauty blog but my wife likes looking for nail designs and eye shadows. thanks for the giveaway.

  26. says: alphapaige

    I am new to your blog, but what really attracted me are the beautiful pictures of the products I see! (It was the Nars eyeshadow review for Phoebe that hooked me haha)

    Pictures and rigorous reviews are what I look for in a beauty blog, and I am glad to see both here! And it will be great to see more snippets of a blogger’s life. Like any other likes she has, rants on certain things, pets (if any), cooking done or even about nothing in general. It makes me feel like I am getting to know a friend that way. =)

    1. says: Jaa

      I’ve always thought of incorporating personal/lifestyle posts into hellojaa so maybe I’ll try to do that this year! Thank you for your sweet comment, Alphapaige, and super good luck!!! :D

  27. says: Alexia H.

    I look for new beauty and cosmetic product reviews with photos of swatches, giveaways, and tutorials.

  28. says: Lucina

    Woo, great giveaway, Jaa! :D
    I think what I gravitate towards the most for a beauty blog is the pictures. In particular, if they’re true to colour.

  29. says: Linda

    Just discovered your blog through amandarobots! It looks beautiful and I’m excited to explore. I like intelligent writing, clear photos, and prestige/luxury products.

    1. says: Jaa

      Yay! Thank you for stopping by, Linda! Amanda’s blog is fun to read and she has a very unique writing style! :)

      Did you enter the giveaway? If so, good luck!!! <3

  30. says: Venessa

    The most important thing is the honest review given about a specific products. Sometimes beauty blogger is being sponsored and forced to write good reviews on the product where the product isn’t actually that good. And I love your blog especially for those honest reviews. thank you :D

    1. says: Jaa

      Thank you so much, Vanessa! Sounds like honesty is the number one thing we all look for in a beauty blog! :) Good luck!!

  31. says: Dee

    I have no idea what just happened..Im a bit confused but heres my comment Jaa. Here’s wishing you another fantastic year of success with everything. Its only been a few months and I already feel like I need a break from blogging so hats off to you!! xo

    1. says: Jaa

      Thank you so much, Dee!! I had no idea it’s only been a few months for you, your blog looks very professional! It’s OK to take a break once in a while just don’t be gone too long! We will miss you & your posts too much!! :)

  32. says: chen

    for me the most important thing in a beauty blog is to keep it real and authentic and off course high quality pictures like yours! what camera do you use?

  33. says: Cathy Burnett

    The most important thing I look for in a beauty blog is the latest current up to date product. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  34. says: Milana

    I always look for blogs that review products I would like to try and have a variety of high end and drug store products :)

  35. says: Anna

    In a blog I look for interesting makeup reviews. Also I like a beautiful photos. Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. says: Marcus

    For beauty blogs, I look for practical tips and advice that even a non-expert such as myself can use and appreciate – plus giveaways! Thank you :)
