October Trove – Big & Bold

Good Morning Sunday!! I’m soo happy to share with you my October Trove today!! (on the other hand, i’m abit sad.. cuz my dear dearie is WORKING!! T_T Sigh~)

I got my trove last night.. really is NIGHT. almost 10pm but still ok cuz i’m still watching TV and listening to my ipod.


This month’s trove comes with an additional envelope.. but my question is.. how come it’s not delivered by Courex this time? It seems to mi that VT staff delivered the trove personally~

So what do we have here this month???


Pretty heavy trove! and when i open, i’m quite… amazed! Full size products!! not 1 but 2!! geeezz.. felt so loved!


I must say, the first thing that caught my attention!! Bourjois Paris Eyeliner! It’s like a lipstick packaging! Made mi wonder HOW THIS EYELINER LOOKS LIKE!!?? This definitely is nt sample size ya???

Couldnt wait any longer i twisted open the safety seal and TADAAA~~ Pointed eyeliner! it seems like i can use this to draw super thick black eyeliner! ^__^ Happy girl!

I did a small comparison with my favourite eyeliners.. and i think.. tho i can use this to draw a thick black eyeliner guess i’ll still prefer my existing one.. You’ll know why!

Here! this is the little comparison! Your can see the branding in the photo.. You can also see some rub marks on my hand too..

After application, i waited for 5 mins and rub each eyeliner upwards ONCE. Result? TM Gel liner is still wet. BP is not dry too. Kate seems pretty fine already.

After 30 mins, i rub them downwards once again. This time you can see, TM & Kate are pretty set already. Indeed smudgeproof! >_< BP’s eyeliner will still smudge. this point i thot it probably is just not smdgeproof. SO!!!

I wiped it with a wet tissue.. and! IT(BP) CAME OFF IMMEDIATELY!! Kate was almost washed off too.. but TM is “standing STRONG! As for color wise.. tho it’s all black, but i think BP’s black is quite pretty!

Order of eyeliner is still the same (from left to right: TM/BP/Kate).. It’s not very obvious in the pic but Kate’s black is more yellow base. BP is simply black. TM is Blackest of all black! hahaha! Application for Kate & BP’s eyeliner were pretty smooth! TM gel’s liner as compared loses out abit. So depanding on which type of eyeliner u looking for, i think they each have their own unique beauty.

In conclusion, BP’s eyeliner is pretty black enuff for me and i think girls who prefer easy removal process end of the day, this is for u~ Also Also!! if u like smokey eye, i guess this would be a good liner u can use to bring out the smokey effect! How to?? See below video and u’ll know how! 🙂 (NOTE: you may not have the same eyeliner but the effect can be achieved using an eyeliner brush or worst case, BEAUTY FINGERS)

Smokey Eye with eyeliner:

And for girls who like something different, this is definitely fro u! unique level 100%! 🙂

So what is this PUSH UP all about????

PUSH UP is a luscious body cream with a velvety soft consistency, is easily absorbed and enriched with a mild, pleasant scent of flowers.

PUSH UP Breast, Neck and Tummy Cream uses a host of natural ingredients to stimulate the body’s production of collagen and elastin which in turn boosts the skin’s elasticity. This makes the breasts appear fuller, firmer and shapelier. PUSH UP encourages cell regeneration, fights off wrinkles and firms slackened skin on the neck, chest and tummy. PUSH UP is suitable and beneficial for all ages and skin types, to preserve and revitalize youth, beauty and suppleness of the skin and breasts!

Results are visible after 1-2 weeks of regular use; breasts and skin appear firmer and the skin is smoother, softer and younger looking. As the skin is rejuvenated on a cellular level, stretch marks and scars fade, wrinkles and fine lines diffuse.*

*Clinical tests document up to 9 degrees improvement in 6 weeks. Individual results may vary.

*still in shock*

Good thing is.. this thing doesnt get wasted just because i no dun need it on my breast!! I can actually use this cream on my neck and tummy!!! *wink*

Usage: Breast & Neck – Apply cream once/twice a day with up and inwards movements. Tummy & Stretch Marks – Apply cream twice a day to firm up the tummy skin and to reduce stretchmarks.

After all the Big and Bold product i think i need some small things to keep mi CALM!! HAHAHAHAHAH!!! DHC~!! #1 direct skincare company in Japan, for more beautiful skin. With a legacy of over 30 years in Japan creating high-quality products based on the natural benefits of olive oil, DHC is here to help you achieve more radiant skin. They use effective ingredients that are tested and true, without adding unnecessary coloring agents or irritating fragrances.


VT, you know wat, i was at Watsons looking at DHC Cleansing Oil on Fri evening and here… i got one sample! came in the right time i would say!! hahahaa! Now i can try it before i really purchase it..

This amazing olive oil cleanser dissolves pore-clogging dirt, excess oil, makeup—even waterproof mascara—with ease, leaving skin feeling refreshed and soft to the touch. Its unique water-soluble formula rinses completely, so you’ll never see a greasy residue. Olive oil and vitamin E help ensure you won’t see dryness either.


Olive Soap! (soap again.. -__-)

Olive Soap is a fierce antioxidant and vitamin-rich cleanser that’s gentle on all complexions, including sensitive, dry, and mature. Fortified with olive leaf’s naturally occurring coenzyme Q10, a nutrient that also exists in our own cells, this clear cleansing bar fights free radicals that can cause damage to collagen and elastin fibers. It also frees your skin’s surface of dirt and excess oil while helping to fortify your skin.

In short! It combats rough, damaged, dry and mature skin with the antioxidant-rich goodness of olive leaf extract in this reviving soap. Help your skin feel supple, smooth and restored….


Mild Lotion! This revitalizing tonic helps your moisturizer go the extra mile in keeping your skin freshly hydrated. It’s alcohol-free for gentleness, and blended with soothing cucumber juice to keep things cool.


Olive Virgin Oil.. Sounds oily to apply on face hor..?? but think again!

Bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, Olive Virgin Oil is 100% certified organic Flor de Aceite, one of the purest forms of olive oil available. It has a superior ability to moisturize and soften skin and to help you achieve a remarkably healthier complexion. Its unique hydrophilic properties allow it to form a protective moisture barrier against irritants without clogging pores. Warm a couple of drops between your palms, gently press onto your face, and let the revitalization begin.


The Essence of Nature – Lavender Patch.. This is something similar to Kinohimitsu! but with Lavender scent that helps relieve fatigue and insomnia by lowering blood pressure and relaxing both body and mind. It also release tension and pacify the nerves without toxicity!

I grabbed below pic/info from The Essence of Nature fb page! Quite factful! give it a read..

It is unavoidable for human beings to have their bodily waste accumulated in their feet, which provide the main support for the body. This is easily observable through daily experiences like stained socks at night and swollen feet when one gets tired. Accumulated wastes in the body can lead to dropsical legs, fatigue, and even disharmony in the body when metabolic process does not function properly. The soles of the feet, where acupuncture points are concentrated, are a reflection of all parts of the human body. They have a great influence on blood circulation, and, as such, are referred as the “second heart”. Toxic matters are often stagnated in the feet, which makes the soles of the feet the best areas for application of the sap patch to experience its beneficial effects.

Seee… easy to use rite?

There’s other 2 types of patch namely, Bamboo Sap Patch & Slimming Sap Patch! They are all available at Watsons for S$29.90 (14 patchs – one week supply)!!
