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!

20130816-223009.jpg

The preview message for this Shiseido Box:

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Is your skin ready for anything? In the month of August, we prepare you for anything that comes your way! Come what may, we shall always put our best face forward! Summer exuberance is here to stay!

Shiseido produces some of the most well-loved skincare and makeup items that are guaranteed to give you that summer glow!

Research shows that stress and lifestyle factors causes skin surface cells to shrink, and causes recurring skin problems.

Shiseido’s exclusive Shape Memorizing Cell Technology returns cells to their ideal condition and inhibits future shrinkage, to boost skin’s resistance.

Building skin’s resistance is the quickest route to smooth, trouble-free skin. And your own cells have the power to boost your skin’s resistance to stress. How? By memorizing their ideally moisturized state, and maintaining it.

It’s not easy to change your lifestyle for you skin. So Shiseido changed skincare for you lifestyle. Ibuki line builds skin’s resistance to UV rays, dryness and daily stress by infusing it with long-lasting moisture. Now you can support your skin’s own inner power to resist problems and stay ideally balanced!

WHAT IS IBUKI?
Ibuki is a Japanese word for inner strength – a buried resource that endures tough conditions and emerges beautifully.

Think of nature’s ability to resist harsh winters, and bring out new life in the springtime. Like nature, your skin protects and nurtures the strength inside, even as your environment changes. But a fully packed schedule, and a demanding, fast-paced lifestyle can be rough enough on your skin to weaken it.

What are “stress” to your skin? Mental stress, UV ray, dryness, lack of sleep, night life, air pollutants and unbalanced diet can cause stress to your skin..

20130816-223017.jpg

SHISEIDO IBUKI Gentle Cleanser – An extra gentle cleanser that lathers quickly into a creamy and rich foam to remove impurities and harmful excess sebum without stripping away skin’s essential moisture. Skin feels refreshed and silky-smooth to the touch.

20130816-223023.jpg

SHISEIDO IBUKI Softening Concentrate – This will enhance the effect of moisturizer and penetrates quickly without leaving any sticky feeling.

By supplying skin with generous moisture, this deep-infusion formula helps deliver immediately effective ingredients into the skin for a softer, smoother feel. Skin’s moisture level is restored, leaving it plump and hydrated!

20130816-223029.jpg

SHISEIDO IBUKI Refining Moisturizer – Get smoother skin with his multi-functional moisturizer. Skin texture is more refined with less visible pores after use.

This multi-action formula intensively corrects the appearance of unevenness such as visible pores, breakouts/ blemish marks and skin roughness. It renews the skin’s surface, revealing an incredibly smooth, uniform texture, while keeping skin hydrated all day long.

20130816-223036.jpg

IMG_5028

When i say blotting PAPER… It really is a piece of paper!! Not like those blue “elastic” sheet from (Johnson & Johnson) or translucent like tracing paper kind thin sheet! THIS-IS-REALLY-PAPER but probably a little more flimsy~ LOL!

blotting1 Blotting2

As I’m here posing stupidly, my blotting paper is already working~

IMG_5068 IMG_5066

See the oil on my forehead?? Absorbing power, disgustingly 4 stars! (Hahaha! BTW, sorry for the poor image! I have to focus on the blotting paper in order to see the “oil” thus my face ended up like so dark..)

20130816-223057.jpg

Pureness Refreshing Cleansing Sheets (Oil-free & Alcohol-free) – Cleansing, refined to its simplest form. Ultra-soft 100% cotton sheets maintain skin’s natural balance while whisking away impurities, makeup and oil that can clog pores and lead to imperfections. Quick. Easy. Portable. Instantly refreshing.

TO USE:
・Remove one sheet and wipe gently over face. Reseal package after use.

UPDATE on 23 August 2013:

IMG_5026 IMG_5027

Cleansing sheet is approximately my palm size but definitely enough for one face! It smells very good (probably a typical Shiseido scent) and isn’t that sticky as compare to the previous cleansing sheet i tried!

IMG_5060 IMG_5059

My waterproof gel eyeliner is wiped clean in a few seconds. No sticky sensation nor skin irritation. For a more efficient but not recommended way of removing my makeup, i cover my face with the cleansing sheet and start wiping like I’m trying to towel dry my face.. I can see my BB cream came off, eyeliner all cleaned up.

It’s good but not good enough for me to purchase it again..Cleansing sheet is never my cuppa tea. I still feel that my makeup is not removed after using it.. 😦

20130816-223104.jpg

20130816-223312.jpg

(after)

20130816-223333.jpg

See the gold shimmer?? Gives you a mature look yet a hint of fun! (well at least it’s not maroon red)

Overall, I’m very HAPPY with my Shiseido Box!! It’s worth more than $19.90 and came better than what I expected!! It won my heart!! Curious what’s for September already?

SepLBBB

L’Oreal’s Anti-aging Box!! Your kind of box?? Subscribe yours now!!

Covermark Door Gift!!

Remember i mentioned (blogged) about going to a workshop by covermark?? yeah .. you should cuz i blogged about it just less than a week ago!! hahahahaa!! See HERE!

So how much did i spend on this???? NONE!!! Because this is my door gift!!! It’s almost unbelieveable to me~~~ so much goodies in this little bag!!

Now first thing in my list….

After your loooong day at work or even shopping… time to remove makeup when you reach home!! arrg… tired! but fear not! this cleansing oil is as good as all other cleansing oil.. just a little bit u can remove your foundation.. not too sure about waterproof mascara but.. i think should be ok.. =P

NEXT.. Mineral Face Wash! This face wash works abit like Ettusais Pore Care Wash… u need to latter the face wash into foam.. thick solid foam.. The trick in using this is… use ur fingers & massage the foam onto ur face.. KEY POINT massage the foam!! not massage ur face..! too profound? that means the foam act as a medium between ur fingers and face, ur fingers are not allowed to touch ur face! This way, the dirt and dust will then be able to be carry away by the foam and not cause wrinkle to your pretty face..

After face wash.. remember to use your toner… this is one of they key product, Cell Advance Lotion.. it actually help to repair our Mother Cell.. What is mother cell u asking?? Mother Cell works like a mother.. it gives birth to more cell.. Thus u need a good mother cell to produce good baby cell.. If your mother cell is “sick” then ur baby cell will not be good too~ This will cause skin condition to go down down down…

What’s next!? serum of cuz!! this is also a cell advance formula! need to say more? hahah!

NOW… face clean clean.. time to put on makeup to start ur day!!? Here’s the connecting base coat! Like what its called, this is a makeup base. In this covermark door gift, there is two type of makeup base. This connecting base is suitable for oily/combination skin.

Tried it personally and quite like it.. it can even out my skin tone and can actually wear it nude like this.. looks presentable too! SUI!!

Here this is the other type that is more suitable for dry skin? haven try this but i think most prolly i’ll share with my sister? hahaah! lucky her! =P

Ok! makeup base set!! next up will be foundation! This is their star product! The Moisture Veil LX! This sample is actually only good for one use per color.

So what is Moisture Veil LX? It’s a new technology that converts sebum into the factor for luminous, moisturized skin. More luminous and moisturized the moment you apply it, but also as time passes. The more time passes, the deeper the beauty becomes. This is the first for a powder foundation. With a single patting on, it feels marshmallow light and gives skin a moist luster.

PRODUCT FEATURE: (quoted from their official site)

  1. Sandwich complex (multi-layer) powder converts sebum into skin radiance. Catches and gelates sebum on the surface of the skin to block it from causing cosmetic breakdown and darkening. When skin brightening powder catches sebum, it also tones up the skin and makes it more luminous as time passes.
  2. Moisture-converting powder changes into a cream that coats the skin and keeps moisture from evaporating, thereby keeping the skin moisturized.
  3. Contains plants extract that protect your skin from dryness
  4. SPF32 PA+++

HOW TO USE:

Tips for beautiful finish

* For areas with imperfections, dab powder on sponge bit by bit and pat onto the skin to avoid creating a heavy look.

* Do not dampen the sponge. This may cause the foundation’s surface to harden.

* The powder contains lots of moisturizers. Always keep the sponge clean and store on the clear tray inside the case, because the powder won’t spread evenly and thinly if the sponge contains any left over powder.

When using for touch up

* If there are shiny areas, lightly press them with tissue paper or blotting sheet.

* On areas with creased foundation, do not reapply. Instead mend the unevenness by lightly patting with a sponge.

* On areas where the foundation has fallen off, dab a small amount of the powder onto sponge and spread it evenly to recover a smooth, natural look.

You can also refer to my previous post to see the “direction” of how to apply!

I just wana add on … This foundation really makes my skin looks flawless…! good coverage! good investment ladies!!!

OK… my second last bit of this post…… FACE MASK!!!!! remember that little mask on my hand i posted in my previous post? hehe!! this is the FULL size version! ^__^

Here here!! laaaasssst but not least!! wrinkle minutes! need me to explain more?? of cuz its a anti-wrinkle cream! hahaha this is definitely not for me!!! =X hahahaha MOM! u’re gona love mi for this~!

This is not a very detailed post but i tried my best.. the english version of covermark site is under construction so.. there ain’t much info for me to dig! hahahaha! if rely onmy memorey.. this is the best i can go!!
