Event: Origins M.A.D Plus+ and Smarty Plant CC Cream

Went to a little get together with Origins Singapore Team with some other lovely bloggers this morning! We were introduced to two of their latest offerings, the Make A Difference Plus+ range which is of a new formulation after 5 years of research and also the Smarty Plant CC Cream which is the first all Natural CC Cream in the market.

We had a lovely salad brunch over the presentation and there’s a meaning to it. We were only served White tea and that’s one of the Key Ingredients which you can find in their CC Cream. We also find Watermelon and Lychee in the salad selection and these two are the two newly introduced ingredients in the M.A.D Plus+ range.

Dry and dehydrated skin are a common problem and it is found that Asian women are prone to a deficiency in Caspase-14, which is an enzyme that contributes to producing moisture. The M.A.D Plus+ range helps with the production of Caspase-14 which will work with two other components in the skin that will help production of moisture and keeps the skin hydrated.

This range also consists of the Rose of Jericho which will help prevents dehydration and to improved dry and damaged skin conditions.

I’ve tested out the texture of the M.A.D Plus+ Rejuvenating Serum and its very light and it absorbs really quickly with no sticky residue.

Then we have the Smarty Plant CC Cream, which other then correcting, prefect and protects our skin from skin damaging factors from the environment. Origins named it the Intuitive Delivery System that actually triggers skincare benefits based on environmental cues.

Here’s a swatch of the CC Cream, which looks a little orange. But not to worry, the CC cream consists of Plant Coated mineral pigments which will color correct uneven skin tones and blends into your skin. It has a smooth semi matte finish.

I’ve received the CC Cream and the Serum for trial and will be reviewing them in separate posts.

The CC cream is already available at all Origins Counters and the M.A.D Plus+ Range will be available from October 2013 onwards.



Etude House Pink Play Party Season 4 in Singapore

I went to the Etude Pink Play Party on the 27th August at MBS! Was really excited as I can see Shinee!! Been a long time since their concert in Singapore. But of course, I’m a fan of Etude House too! How can I not be one when they have such pretty packaging. I love their Wonder Pore Freshener!


We were given a passport when we have to get stamps at different experience stations which will then grant us entry into the Talk and Sing stage area. But of course, they did not deny us entry to the stage area despite not completing the ‘passport’. Its just that we won’t be able to be that near the stage.


We have Kelvin Laoshi from Taiwan to demonstrate a quick and simple make up that can be done within 10 minutes. I must say the model is gorgeous! And of course the highlight of the event, SHINEE!!! Need I say more? Haha!


The stage performances were pretty short and sweet, ended within an hour. We can still roam around and try out Etude products at the ‘ Play’ area!


I mentioned that I’ve met up with Sehee, a blogger from Korean and I met her again at the Pink Play Party! As I mentioned, she’s Etude ambassador and she was going around interviewing girls at the event! She’s really very sweet!


Overall the whole event is pretty ok. It is fun to be able to play with all the different kinds of makeup that Etude has to offered! It would have been better if the talk and sing stage area have like seats or something as it was quite tiring to stand throughout.


Wanna be Sweet? Play Etude!



K-Palette: Sweet As Chocolate Campaign

I believe that many of you are used to using black eyeliners. Personally, I try to avoid black eyeliners for normal day looks as I was once told that black is too harsh for me. Which is why I’m a big fan of brown liners and is very excited to see K-Palette launching their famed liners in brown tones!

With Jacelyn, Maybeline <3, YiJing at the Photo Booth!

We had a mini contest using the new brown liners to draw a face chart. And that’s me busy coloring. Haha.


Try spotting my face chart!



The range of K-Palette products other than their famous 1 day Tattoo eyeliner, also includes the Kuma concealer which is available in three tones for different flaws.


Here’s a swatch of the pencil liner, liquid liners in two different shades of brown and the two way eyebrow make.

Now you can have long lasting soft looks with these brown 1 Day Tattoo liners! And I’m happy to have more brown liners in my stash!

Tsubaki-Newly Improved Formulas

Hi Ladies!
I’m sure all of you know about Tsubaki range of hair products! I was recently invited to their launch of their new formulas!

To be honest, I’ve never tried Tsubaki ranges of shampoos and conditioners despite hearing good reviews and rave! This is because my mum usually buys the shampoo. Ops. Hence, I’m really glad to be able to finally try Tsubaki! Yeah!



Tsubaki have three ranges of products catering to different needs. They have the Damage Care in white, Shining Range in red and Head Spa in yellow. The Head Spa range is something new that is targeted at people with sensitive scalp!



The new formulas sees the introduction of pearl in the ingredient list and 20% more Camellia oil in the products! Do you know that Tsubaki means Camellia in Japanese? The new formulas will have an higher efficiency to protect and care for our hair!



There was some activities like memory game and also an illustration booth! There were two illustrators of different styles there at the event. However I only managed to get one as there was a super long queue! Meet Teresa, the very talented illustrator! She have really pretty big eyes but she’s busy drawing me, so I did not get a chance to take a proper photo of her.



Here’s happy me with an illustration of me. Proper photo of it on instagram soon ok? I forgot to post it up the other day. 😛



I’ve received the Damage Care range to try out and have been using it for a week already.

So far, I noticed that my severely damaged bleached ends have got smoother after using Tsubaki! I also really like the nice scent that it has!!



Tsubaki is available at Watsons and all major departmental stores. Get your tresses pampered with Tsubaki today!
