Vitamins Infused Foundation!

A healthy mix for a healthier you!!

Just looking at their marketing material, I’m convinced the product is full of vitamin!

Capture

What am i waiting for?? UNBOXING TIME!!! Yay!!!

Introducing BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION!

Pamper yourself with Bourjois NEW Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation that provides multiple skincare benefits, on top of flawless beauty. The new formula contains a vitamin-infused complex that erases all signs of fatigue for a fresh and healthy-looking complexion.

Here’s what their exclusive blend of vitamins can do for us:

  • Vitamin C – Anti-fatigue effective – Look fresher and rested!
  • Vitamin E – Anti-oxidant action – Natural luminous skin!
  • Vitamin B5 – Revitalizing Action – Reveal the radiance within!

On top of these vitamins, this foundation is said to be long lasting and medium coverage (Up to 16 hours coverage)! It’s also semi-matte and ultra light weight which will gives you a delightful bare skin sensation! All day hydration for maximum comfort throughout the day! Last but not least, 70% more radiance giving you a natural healthy looking glow!

How true? Read on for more details!!

Pump bottles are always the best, or at least that how I feel. Clean and hygienic.. Most importantly, less messy!

  

Cant see much difference on my hand? Fret not, I did a quick swatch personally and I like the look!

So here’s me with my bare face, more like bear face.. LOL!

 

The shade I’m using is N54 Beige (somewhere light to medium shade)! The texture of this foundation is pretty smooth and it’s easy to blend out, all thanks to its light weight factor!

As for coverage, it did cover my freckles pretty well making them less obvious and I’m happy with it! I guess the half face comparison can speak louder than my words.

Now on my whole face? Ta-daaa! Matte but not flat! Totally loving the combination of this foundation!! Semi-matte and giving you a lil glow! Able to cover my freckles yet still remain light weight and doesn’t feels cakey!! Aiseh~ Best of all, benefit that can’t be seen, the vitamins infused in this foundation!

Now complete our flawless face with BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX CONCEALER!

Time to say bye-bye to dark circles and pufy eyes! Brighten and energize in a single step by using this product!

It’s spherical powders will blur and smooth your skin for a silky finish! It contain light reflecting pigments that can gives you immediate radiance and undetectable finish!

How true? Read on again!!

This concealer comes in a small tube with cushion tip. Again, it’s a mess-free packaging and totally compact to bring around for touch-up etc.. ❤

 

I got myself a shade 51 (light), a tone lighter than my own complexion. This way, it can act as a highlighter as well! How smart! Okay, anyway, I guess you won’t be able to see much from the hand swatch.. Fret not (again!!), because I swatch it on my face too!

 

Healthy Mix collection seems really worthy! Concealer light weight too and easy to blend! The cushion tip can hold quite a decent amount of concealer hence you do not need to dap and dap again to get enough coverage.

 

I don’t know about you but I think it’s doing a decent job here. at least it covers my eye ring and yet doesn’t give me 2 white patch eye.. You know..

(image grabbed from google)

Now to show you with all foundation and concealer on…

   

Will I buy this again? Why not? Vitamin infused foundation leh, go where find? Haven’t I mentioned? I wear this foundation/concealer to work from morning to evening and my skin doesn’t feel dry nor cakey after a whole day!! I can’t tell if it’s really 24-hr hydrating but at least for 10-hr is no issue!

Now’s your turn to give your skin a healthy flawless look!

WHERE TO BUY: Major Watsons & departmental stores

Price: Foundation @ S$29.90 for 30ml (comes in 6 shades); Concealer @ S$17.50 for 7.8ml (comes in 3 shades)

My All Time Favourite – Makeup Stash!

POST of the year!! A compilation of my favourite makeup product here!

What can get me excited? Anything NEW..!!! I remember when I was a kid, I always wanted to go home after I got my toy!! That’s why my mom always put my “shopping session” last.. 😥 Now that I’ve grown up, this habit never change.. It just got improvised! Instead of wanting to go home to open up my toy immediately, I opened them up when I got a chance to!! Like, when we’re sitting down for dinner or while waiting to bus/train?? But of course this time, it ain’t children’s toy anymore.. It’s my beauty products..

I’ve always love to try new things!! Eyeliner.. BB cream/foundation.. Blusher.. Lip color.. As long as it’s new it’s worth a try until you know it’s not. LOL! So after trying several products, below are the few that becomes the apple of my eye.. ❤

20140526-153125-55885784.jpg

What I like about it: Gives a dewy look & made my complexion looks really brightened!

What I like about it: It cover marks and look very natural! Thin layer of foundation is all you need to flawless good skin look!

What I don’t like about it: The way this foundation is packed, I feel it’s not very hygienic and quality of the foundation may be affected as we open and close the lid too many time. 😦 Plus, it’s SUPER expensive loh..

Remedy: Hygiene wise, use a spatula? Cost wise, save up to buy..!! It’s worth the cents!

Qoo10 Cocomo

My blog readers will know that I hardly recommend any seller from Qoo10 on my blog. Not that they’re no good. It’s just that there’s nothing special worth promoting for them.

However, today I will be sharing with you one of my favourite seller and the things they sell are definitely worth mentioning!!

DISCLAIMER FIRST!! This is NOT a sponsored post! I used my hard earn money to purchase each and every one of them!

COCOMO

IMG_6926These are the products which I had bought so far… I didn’t buy at one go of course!! they are being brought home over a period of time..

I will not be drilling in depth into every product but more of showing you what I’ve bought from them!

I remember the first product I bought from COCOMO is ETTANG Rubber Mask!

I’ve tried both old and new version!! Equally good but new version is better in the sense that they look more attractive and comes with a safety seal!

IMG_5265IMG_5264I did a post in May 2015 sharing my experience in using this rubber mask! If you’re keen to try this rubber mask, do give it a read by clicking HERE!

Well, I have not use the GOLD MASK yet so no comments on that! But but.. I read a lot of good review about it..!! Probably I should use it soon!!!

Next product from COCOMO that caught my attention is BERRISOM LIP TINT PACK! Don’t think I have written any post about it yet but had briefly share the goodness on my lip stash post! 

IMG_6927 IMG_6928

I bought 3 colors (separate purchase) and among all I think I like Vivid Scarlet best!

**BTW, if you’re wondering why my hand look so FAIR, it’s Oseque High-end Touch Foundation! It’s a lil too fair for me so i will not be sharing much on that!

IMG_4423 IMG_4426 IMG_4428 It’s bright and highly pigmented! You can check out my review of this HERE & HERE!

Next up is another HAPPY PURCHASE!! SON&PARK LIP CRAYON!
IMG_6910Out of so many nice color why did I purchase one that has NO COLOR!!? It’s not for no reason okay~ This was one of the most recommended color – natural yet sweet looking!

And…. Sugar Tint is Jeon Ji Hyun’s HOT PICK!

jeonjihyun

I was still worried that the “color” will not show on my lips but… SEEE!!!!

IMG_6985

left: with sugar tint     |  right: without sugar tint

Can see the difference right!!!!

IMG_6986 IMG_6987

I thought this was pretty awesome and totally worth the price!!! The sweet rose scent is mild and soothing! Application is smooth and not sticky at all.

Lips looks so kissable and soft now!! Definitely recommending this to girls who like natural makeup and wana heal dry lips!

 

SELF COLLECTION @ NOVENA MEDICAL CENTER
IMG_6875If you opt for the FREE self-collection, don’t worry of getting lost or no public transport bringing you there! I collected most of my COCOMO products from Novena Medical Center! Hassle-free and friendly staff!!

Covermark Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid Workshop – Part 2

Happy 2015 everyone!! Although I am 10 days late BUT(!) it’s the thought that count!!

Not forgetting, Happy SG50!!! Yes, this year is Singapore 50th Birthday tooooo!! 😀

sg50

Well, today’s post has got nothing to do with National Day nor fireworks. I’m here to continue my unfinished work… Do you remember I was sharing with you the Covermark Workshop I attended in early December? CAN’T!!? Nevermind, click HERE to read!

So after I got home, I quickly opened up my goodie bag and found myself a bag full of goodness!!

DSC03572

Basically, to summerize it all, we’ve got all we need for our daily skin care regime! From makeup remover to cleanser all the way to loose powder!!

DSC03619-1

DSC03574-1

They are very generous to give participants 3 days worth of sample sachet (toner, serum, moisturizer)!!

DSC03578-1  IMG_20141220_230959

 

Toner smells good and quite hydrating.. 1 sachet like this is more than enough for my whole face and don’t forget your neck!! Neck is one BIG factor that reveals your age!!

150ml – S$160

DSC03592-1 DSC03599-1

After toner, we should use serum. I thought serum should be translucent kinda texture but Covermark’s serum let me feels more like a moisturizer.. Again, don’t be stingy, 1 sachet for 1 usage..

40ml – S$210

I can’t tell you how much I love this Cell Advance collection.. They’re not only moisturizing, they can repair our mother cell and myeloid stem cells! In short, using Cell Advance collection for a period of time, you will notice an uplifting and radiance on your skin! Like glowing from within…!

DSC03606-1 DSC03608-1

Next is this moisturizer… This moisturizer is advisable to use only at night! You must be thinking WHY ONLY AT NIGHT!?

Let me tell you WHY……

Because………………..

DSC03611-1 DSC03612-1It’s super oily la!! My skin is shining like I’ve never seen before! This oily look will last quite a while.. But you know what, I’m not very bothered by it because it somehow doesn’t leave behind the oily sensation. Seems like it only look oily but doesn’t feel oily. I know I’m confusing you but.. If this is what is takes to have beautiful skin, I’m quite ok to use it every night..

Oiliness (shiny/glow, whatever you call it) aside, this moisturizer is pretty good! My skin feels tighten but not drying at all.. I wake up with skin looking healthy and no oily T-zone!!

30g – S$240

Now that we have cleanse and treat our skin, time for make up?? Yup!! There are sample sachets of the new Creamy Liquid Foundation and Loose Powder!!

DSC03616

See how thoughtful they are, although it’s only sample sachet, they include the makeup sponge for you toooo!!

Now in the blogger’s bag, we get 2 more extra items..

DSC03630-1

the full size Creamy Liquid Foundation (of our skin tone) and Loose Powder tooo!

And in case I did not mention in my previous post, did you know how much this little 25g foundation can last!!? 3 months? *shake head* 4 months?? *shake head*

5-6 MONTHS!!! You’re asking me why??? Because all we need is just a SMALL amount each time we use..

IMG_20141220_231156

Yup, just this size to give you that natural good skin look!! Need extra coverage? Just dap a lil bit more on them and viola~ You look awesome now!!

DSC03633-1

To finish the whole look, this loose powder is not something you wanna miss!! It adds radiant to your skin and make you looks flawless!!

Tried and tested, I’m looking awesome even after a long walk to my office under the hot sun!! Totally loving this new product!!

To recap the goodness of this product, check out my “BEFORE” look below….DSC03464

and “AFTER“….DSC03532

 

Sorry for the half drawn eyeshadow!! LOL…. My main focus is to share with you my face complexion.. Look so smooth right!!?

Best part, you never need to worry about oxidization!! Because as time goes by, you will only look more and more radiance!!!!

Covermark Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid Workshop

Who will come to Orchard at such early morning on Sunday!? ehem, Me…  Although a lil tired but I’m more of excited to attend this workshop!! So what workshop made me so excited?

It’s Covermark’s NEW Launch – Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid Workshop, held at the heart of Orchard – Takashimaya!

IMG_9541IMG_9543DSC03413

Yeah!! I’m the earliest and I get to pick where I wanna sit!! Muahahahaha! But as you can see, this workshop is catered to a small group.. Hence sitting anywhere is fine la!

In the training room, they had displayed most of their product nicely and (oh man!) all of them look so class!

DSC03425

Above products are some face mask, toner, serum, moisturizer..

DSC03424

And here’s the cleansing oil, cleansing milk, cleanser..

DSC03426

 

Now for the star product!! Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid Foundation and loose powder!

You must be thinking.. “Nah~ just another regular foundation.. Effect is good only for the first few mins/hours.. End of the day I still prefer my all-time favourite.. ”

I admit, I had that thought tooo! But this workshop totally blown my mind away!!! FAR away! (LOL..)

DSC03436

Did you read the poster!?? BEAUTIFUL GLEAMING SKIN as time passes!! How is it possible? Doesn’t it oxidized?? Let’s read on find out more..

DSC03415

Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid – Combines the moisturizing effect of a cream foundation & the lightness of a liquid foundation in one product.

  • Velvet smooth creamy liquid foundation for radiant finish
  • Soft & light touch for full skin coverage
  • New technology: Cover skin imperfections with light, pure pearl granules & “water mirror” (Pure Bright Pigment & Moisture Watering Complex)
  • Suitable for brightening dull skin and covering spots
  • Prevent spots and freckles caused by UV rays (SPF38 PA+++)
  • Includes natural plant extracts: Korean Ginseng, Reishi Mushroom, Aloe Vera

At first glance, I’m attracted to the point whereby it brighten dull skin and cover spot!! Not only that, it prevent spots and freckles caused by UV rays tooo!! Can’t wait for the workshop to start!! ^__^

DSC03429 DSC03430

Currently, this foundation has 8 color tone! I can’t remember all 8 color code, but after reading this post if you’re tempted to get one too, head to their counter and talk to the promoter.. They will (and must) pick three color and apply onto your jawline.. The color that blend best will be the tone you should take.. I’m a MO20!

So back to the workshop.. While waiting for other attendee, I camwhore a bit w my “bare” face.. Only applied BB cream and eyeliner.

DSC03441

DSC03464

I know this is irrelevant but I super love their mirror, it can be table top mirror or hand held mirror just within a second.. And it’s so pretty – gold with a bling!! *heartz*

RIINNGGG~~ the class is starting!! Here’s our trainer for today, Ms. Wani (hope I got her name right!!)

DSC03466

So like the benefits I mention above, do you know why your skin can stay beautiful as time passes? It’s because of Covermark’s “coverage by light” technology!! Moisture Veil Creamy Liquid catches light, beautifully reflecting them and making skin look brighter as time passes. The Pure Bright Pigment attracts and reflects light making the skin look illuminated from within! “From within” ok!! That means when people see you, they will comment u have good skin rather than good makeup!! Sounds better right!?

Not only that, Moisture Watering Complex traps moisture, forming a veil of moisture and protecting the skin from dryness! Hence your skin will look supple and makeup will stay too!!

After all the talk, let’s do a hands on now!!

IMG_20141220_230225

Yes, pretty bare face~ Just BB cream and eyeliner!

DSC03482

And now we’re gonna remove them with Covermark Cleansing Milk!

DSC03485 DSC03491

Pump appropriate amount and spread onto 5 area like above pic and then massage in circular motion to remove your makeup!

DSC03496-picsay

Really is “OMG” letting you see this face!! My cute freckles are everywhere!!! LOL…DSC03498

DSC03499

After applying toner, serum and moisturizer, it’s time for makeup base! Covermark have two kinda makeup base. Moisture Clear Base and Connecting Base.

Moisture Clear Base is good enough if you’re gonna be in air-con room (non-direct sunlight)! Because it will not make your face too oily later…

DSC03504

Here… This is how the promoter should do the matching for you when selecting the right foundation color tone.. I suppose you can tell which one it matching one for me right??

After selecting the tone, of course we have to apply them onto our face but before that can you guess the amount we should use to look beautiful? 20 cent coin size? TOO BIG, my gosh!!! How about 1 cent coin?? No.. All we need is a pea size!!IMG_20141220_231419

Just like that and we can apply onto our whole face to look like we have smooth silky skin!!

DSC03508 DSC03521

Skin immediately looks smoother and more even skin tone!! If you ask me, I think this foundation is good! Spreading it across my face is really easy and smooth! Even after half a day later, my face still looks good!! Especially now in my new office location, the walking journey from MRT station to my office is no joke! With regular BB cream/foundation, by the time I reach office, my makeup has already melted and turn cakey! they lasted less than 3 hours on my face! But this foundation lasted better than I expected! I looked into the mirror when I reach office, I still look awesome la!! hahaha!! I’m super happy I get to know this product!!

Back to the workshop!

DSC03525

After foundation, we applied the loose powder! The powder is very fine and you know what, it has moisturize effect too!! I’m like “Huh? Powder can moisturized my skin too?”

Yes it can! And not only it can provide moisturizing effect, it can reflect light tooo!

DSC03528

Seee.. I look so much better after the makeup right!!? Face like so smooth and so flawless!! Super like the effect man!!

DSC03532

And now with my HALF face eye makeup.. I think I look gorgeous already!! LOL…

DSC03546

So these are the products we had used for the workshop.. I’m still very amazed with the creamy liquid foundation effect!!

If you’re keen to try, be quick, they’re having a promotion now!

IMG_9564

I know what u’re thinking! The date says 2-5 Dec only but the last time they told me was “While Stock Last”.. but don’t care la, just drop by and visit.. who knows you might be so lucky and get to bring home this very cool blusher with purchase of the creamy liquid foundation!

The blusher is a limited edition one hence if you missed this chance, you won’t get it again! Why must have? Because it’s not just a blush, it can do highlight too.. and the casing very sui (pretty) oh~ I tried the blusher during the hands on workshop and I find it really good. The powder can be picked up easily bjt yet not too heavy when u smack them on your cheek.. it look really natural (you can tell crom the pic right?)

IMG_20141220_230845

Overall, I find this workshop really beneficial to me. You know as time passes, we tends to forget about some makeup basic.. Hence attending workshop like this can refresh our memory.. Plus you get to know such awesome product! I pretty sure I will missed this creamy liquid foundation if I hadn’t attend tnus workshop!

I shall end my post here.. Stay tune for part 2 as I will be sharing with you what I’ve got in their goodie bag! It’s super awesome!

Check out their HOW TO video.. It’s a guide to apply the foundation!

For more Covermark updates, don’t forget to give them a ‘like’ on their FB tooo!

The Little Black Beauty Box X Tangs !!

Are you aware that The Little Black Beauty Box has changed partner?

Yup, it’s no more Robinson but Tangs! Oh well, to me, as long as it continue to bring in new/interesting/amazing samples for its subscribers, I don’t really care who’s the partner. Of course, the price must be justifiable! LOL..

So today, I proudly presents my first Tangs x LBBB ! Quite happy with my new LBBB!

20140622-131215-47535720.jpg

But before i go further, I have to apologise!! All images that you are gonna see here, the color is a bit “cool”.. It looks totally fine on my cam but somehow when I transferred them to my iPhone and upload them here.. hmm… colour runs?

Anyway, I had tried my best to adjust the color to as true as possible but.. oh well.. bear with it!

20140622-131216-47536205.jpg

Ain’t you excited to seeeee so many goodies in a lil box like this!? Looks like they have hunt for variety of samples for us.. From skin care to hair care to makeup to fragrance! Wow~ How thoughtful!

I will not be going through every single item in my box but still I will show you picture of it..

First thing that caught my attention is….  BELIF! For the first time I actually see one sample box includes a decent travel size of Belif product! Best part, this is the cleanser that I would usually get when I wanted Belif!

20140627-145148-53508746.jpg

This cleansing foam uses a foaming action to softly wash away impurities from your skin. Formulated with Soapwort, Sweet Flag and Wormwood to remove toxins, this cleansing foam produces clean skin without dryness after washing.

Soapwort, rich with vitamin C and natural foaming agents, cleanses the skin gently. It has been used instead of soap for centuries. Sweet Flag, has appealed to women for generations, is known to make hair and skin beautiful, silky and smooth. Wormwood, possesses breakout-prevention properties and excels at removing toxins.

The other 2 Belif products are sachet masks pack..

20140622-131349-47629158.jpg

The next item here I think there’s no need to further explained! It’s so popular even my mom knows about it.. Yup, It’s Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX..

20140627-145149-53509242.jpg

Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum

20140627-145149-53509705.jpg

This is better than the face lifting cream from Bioessence, IMO.. This doesn’t give me a TIGHT feeling and doesn’t feel heavy for my skin.. Most importantly, you can see result!

Michael Kors Sporty Citrus

20140622-131516-47716634.jpg

Guerlain Foundation

20140622-131518-47718339.jpg

Guerlain invents the most perfect second skin: Lingerie de Peau. This intangible foundation becomes one with the skin like a second sensual covering to make it more beautiful than ever. Its secret: the Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, an unprecedented combination of smoothing and shaping stretch fibres and natural linen and silk fibres in complete affinity with the skin. The foundation glides on like a silk stocking. The “little nothing” becomes everything…

20140622-131518-47718833.jpg

Sublimely transparent, the complexion becomes as soft and radiant as silk. The curves of the face are tightened and imperfections are erased. The nine shades of the range are so skin-fusing and natural that they leave no visible colour on the face, simply a glowing, long-wearing tone that leaves the skin looking natural. Regular size Lingerie de Peau is about 30ml pump bottle and has SPF 20 – PA+. Though not the strongest sun protection but better than nothing!

20140622-131519-47719358.jpg

20140622-131519-47719815.jpg 20140622-131520-47720256.jpg

Overall, looks quite natural on my skin and doesn’t feels very thick.. Shall update here again when I tried them out on my face some day!

I’ve got an exactly the same kit from one of the sample box previously.. Haven’t got the chance to use so can’t comment much about it too.. LOL!

20140622-131522-47722403.jpg

First thing that caught my attention was….. Laura Mercier!

20131117-000736.jpg

Yeah! Got a Foundation Primer and Foundation Powder in my box!

The foundation primer is a lightweight, creamy gel meant to be used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. Leaves makeup looking fresh & colour-true the entire day.

The smooth finish foundation powder is a second skin comfort meets color-true wear, wet or dry. This silky-smooth innovation offers a natural veil that imparts a color true finish. It glides on effortlessly, camouflages, hydrates and visibly reduces lines.

I haven’t started using any of these yet but based on my satisfactory after using their tinted moisturizer, I’m pretty confident this two will works as promised!

Next up is tons of fragrance! 香香公主!

If feels like since they can’t decide which to give so they throw in everything! Hahaha.. I like all the scent here but I’m not going into details about how each of them smells like! They all just smells great! I especially like the Salvatore Ferragamo (it reminds me of Hugo dark Blue??)!

20131117-000533.jpg

This is the next thing that caught my attention! Sulwhasoo’s skin care pack!

Have you heard of Sulwhasoo? Sulwhasoo is a Korean herbal medicinal brand that embodies the wisdom and aesthetics of Sangseng. It’s pretty new in Singapore but I think it’s pretty popular in Korea!! (Psst! Don’t say I no share.. Sulwhasoo is under Amore Pacific and some other popluar brands under Amore Pacifics are…Etude House! Innisfree!! Mamonde, Espoire, IOPE and Laneige!! Don’t believe me? Check it out HERE.. Check out their wiki too!)

Next, Korres Shampoo? This is quite alien to me! Aloe & Dittany shampoo for normal hair type, obviously from the bottle! I don’t need to tell u how to use a shampoo uh? However, what I can share with you is that a 250ml shampoo cost €12,75 (selling at S$28 locally, that’s pretty costly) and Korres is a brand from Greece, if I’m not wrong!

20131117-000625.jpg

Ah HA! I’m sure you’re not alien with this!!! Macadamia is so so well known for this healing oil treatment! All beauty boxes are so recommending this to their subscribers! I got it for the third time already! What can this Healing Oil Treatment do?? LOTS!!

This Healing Oil Treatment is a therapeutic hair oil perfect for all hair types and is especially beneficial to dry, damaged hair.

  • Intense nourishment for tangle & frizz free hair
  • Hair that is ultra-smooth, manageable & shiny
  • Natural UV protection extends the life of color treatments
  • Reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%

I’m so amazed by the “reduced drying time by an amazing 40-50%” so I went to read on more and found this…

How does the Healing Oil Treatment reduce drying time by up to 50%? As you know, oil and water separate – so when the oil is absorbed into the hair it basically pushes water trapped under the cuticle out and allows it to dry faster. The heat from the blow dryer reduces the viscosity and enhances penetration even further.  Drying time can be reduced upwards of 40-50% due to this effect, which not only saves you time but also minimizes exposure to heat-related hair damage.

Sounds logical… Hahaha!

20131117-000636.jpg

OK! I’m sure beauty freaks are gonna love this item! Eye shadow pencil from Nars! Aigle Noir is the color I’ve got here and I like it! Black base with gold shimmers. In case you didn’t know, NARS is a Shiseido-owned cosmetics and skin care company founded by François Nars, make-up artist and photographer.

20131117-000659.jpg

So, what’s so good about this Soft Touch Shadow Pencil? Well, it provide easy, portable, long-wearing application. These jumbo sized pencils have versatile functionality to shade the lid, line, or highlight the eye. Smooth, creamy texture delivers a smooth, velvety feel to the eye and make for easy blending and an ideal base for layering with a powder shadow for increased color intensity.

Who needs to bring an eye shadow brush now? =P

20131117-000714.jpg

The first question that pops in my mind is…. “What is this man!??” Totally clueless like an ant!

From the word HYDRA Veil, I can more or less tells it’s something to do with Hydrating but veil..? hmm like a cover? a shade?  Well.. I’m half correct.. This is a Hydrating Primer!

20131117-000726.jpg

A first from Illamasqua: part hydrator, part primer, Hydra Veil is a cosmetic-care primer developed to enhance make-up application and longevity by flooding the skin with immediate rehydration. Providing an instant smoothing effect, it rehydrates, calms, and refreshes skin and enhances the already long-wearing nature of Illamasqua’s make up.

And it does NOT contains Parabens, Sulfates & Phthalates! Many review I read online says that it’s lightweight and get absorbs quickly! So I tried it immediately (I love lightweight products!) and indeed it does get absorbs very quickly and totally lightweight!!

You can checkout their website if you would like to find out more! They have really interesting info in it & they offer makeup course toooo (just that I’m not sure if it’s application in Singapore)!

20131117-000754.jpg

Next, I have Givenchy’s skincare sachets! At first, I thought they were EDT but after looking at them hard enough I realise I was wrong.. XD They are eye cream, serum & day cream from Smile ‘N Repair collection.

Smile ‘N Repair, the new age defying treatment from Givenchy, is designed to help correct the appearance of wrinkles at the very moment when the facial movements exert the skin.

Skin immediately looks smoother and more beautiful, and with every application feels denser and better toned. After four weeks wrinkles appear corrected. Plumped and even, your skin looks incredibly luminous with a smoothed and refined texture.

October Bellabox – We Are TWO!

Happy 2nd Birthday Bellabox!! Glad that I had subscribed to this month box because other then the items I don’t like, I love them ALL!!IMG_6829

Are you able to tell which are my love? Oh! Did I mention, this month’s Bellabox come in a bag. Paperbag! LOL Nah.. It a small cosmetic bag (pouch)!

IMG_6831

IMG_6813

How many of the “post card” can you recognized here? I think i only remember 3?? I was unsubscribed for a period of time.. But now I’m back!

IMG_6832

So let’s see what we have here!!!!

SANITARY PAD!! This is the first thing that I see when I opened up the paper bag!

Cosmo

This seems like a new invention? Check out HERE for their blog post.

IMG_6812

This is a very generous amount of sample!!! I can say it’s as good as a regular pack! So what’s so special about it?? WARNING: DO NOT scroll down if you had bought any lottery!

IMG_6839

After I opened them up, I can immediately feel the softness. But one thing has been bothering me… So MANY HOLES can hold our menses????? O_O Obviously you have not read the blog link that I had provided earlier!

Whisper Cosmo is made of an elastic material, and comes with a unique flexible structure for a 3D fit. Since the resilient pad is less likely to shift or bunch, there’s no need to worry about leakage. Move your body as freely as you want to. No more restrictions!

So these holes are actually the “unique flexible structure”!  Not only that, on days that you have long meeting and can’t change your pad regularly, FRED NOT!

Cosmo has three times the absorbency of regular napkins. Now you can focus on the long meetings, and forget all about the heavy-flow!

That’s not all.. The holes can do more!!

The holes in the centre section of the pad, known as micro dots, absorb flow quickly and allow it to spread evenly across the lower layer of the pad, reducing discomfort for the skin.

Well, fear that not changing your pad often will caused you skin irritation?

A unique, oil-coated non-woven fabric sheet is used for the top sheet, minimising friction for a gentler feel on the skin.

“Lactoflex” does not feel stiff or strange against your skin. Thanks to this material, Whisper Cosmo is comfortable and gentle on the skin!

Ok, now the holes seems pretty attractive.. hahah! Probably I can try it soon when my period is present!
