Tokyo Luxey Meet Up

GRPPIC
(Hiromi san from Tokyo Luxey and Candy, fellow beauty blogger)

I’ve attended a meet up organized by Tokyo Luxey sometime last week and had an enjoyable time learning more about Tokyo Luxey and their mission to bring Japanese brands to all around Asia.

MAEDASAN
(Maeda san from Tokyo Luxey sharing about the various products.)

The lovely ladies from Tokyo Luxey have been flying around Asia to share about Japanese brands and I can see that they are passionate about it. During the session, Maeda san shared with us brands and products that are highly recommended by them. We also discussed about the kind of products we would like to have in Singapore.

TRIALPRODS

Of course, no sharing session is to go without testing out the products. I’m loving the casing of the 24H Cosme foundation! Cho Kawaii! (Cute packaging never fails to capture my heart.)

LUXEGOODIES

Here’s the products I’ve received for sampling. These are mainly the products that are recommended by Maeda san. Now I can try in depth for myself to know if these products are really as good. I’m also liking how the brands are looking for both good and bad reviews. Reviews of these products will be posted separately after I try them out! Do let me know if you want me to review any product first!

Are you interested to be part of the Tokyo Luxey community to try and learn more about Japanese brands and products?

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.

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!

Review: Hada Labo Perfect Gel

Hi!
I’m back with a new skincare review!!
Today, I’ll be reviewing the 3 in 1 Intense Hydration Perfect Gel by Hada Labo.

20130804-000131.jpg

3 in 1 here refers to essence, moisturizer and sleeping mask in one! Pretty neat huh?

Consisting of Collagen, Ceramide and 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid, the Perfect Gel aims to replenish and deeply hydrates the skin. It’s also pH balanced, free of fragrances, mineral oil and alcohol which makes it suitable for sensitive skin.

The texture of the gel seems thick but it melts into a watery texture upon application to the skin. Absorption of the product is pretty quick and skin is left looking firm and supple.
Yet, there’s a slight sticky feel left after.

As one of the function of the Perfect Gel is a sleeping mask, I was also sent this adorable eye cover. To use the gel as a mask, don’t be afraid to apply on more product than usual. You might feel its a little too thick but you will love the smooth and supple skin you get after washing it off the next day.

But for those who have oily skin like me, I will recommend to just use the gel and skip your other products if you were to use it as a mask if not, it might be too rich.

I rate this a 4/5!

XOXO,

First Beauty Collective Haul in 2013!

Hi all!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a beauty haul and it’s just awesome to be hauling beauty products. And so here’s my first beauty haul in 2013.

Etude house have loads of pretty glitter polishes now! These are $6.90 each!

I also got the nail polish set from the Etoinette collection. Look at the colors and that nail stickers! Too pretty to miss!! I’m going to wear this for CNY! This is $16.90.

Bought the Moisture Body Cream simply cause it smells really nice. It’s $22.90 for a 200ml tub. I also got the Silk Scarf hair mask to try after seeing Miyake raving about it on twitter. It’s $6.90 in the local Etude stores.

I‘ve also gotten the large 500ml bottle of the Wonder Pore Freshner at $32.90. Love this toner as I feel that it helps minimize the appearance of the pores plus refreshes the skin well. I’ve also gotten the emulsion from the skin mal:gem range to try as I’ve ran out of one to use for my day regime. It’s $25.90 for 200ml.

Saw that Canmake have 25% off at Watson’s the other say so I got their new foundation and primer to try. This is the natural range which does not includes any synthetic chemicals. It is also able to be removed with just water. The original price for the foundation and primer is $29.90 and $24.90 respectively.

Saw this set of 6 mini lip balms from Fresh going at 30% off which makes it $51, originally priced at $73. Lip balms are a staple in my regime and I always finish them real fast or lose them easily. The size of this lip balm is great to throw into the bag or purse!

I’m so glad that YSL have made its way back to SG shores. If not I will not have found out how awesome their range of lip sticks are. The two pictures are from their new Rouge Volupte Shine range. I’ve own two other from the Rouge Sheer Candy range and the Rouge Volupte Range. According to the BA, this new range is something in between the sheer candy and rouge volupte which provides a pigmented glossy color.

YSL priced their lipsticks at $45 each. I personally feel that it’s worth every single cent of it as it’s long lasting plus moisturizing. I love my sheer candy one so much that I’m contemplating to get a back up of the color I had. Now I’ve 4 lip sticks from YSL and trust me, this number will definitely increase over time.

And that’s all for my beauty haul post!

NOT!

It’s always great to share some beauty love with everyone so I’m giving out the SUGAR Lip Treatment from Fresh (the one on the extreme right in pic, dark brown packaging but it’s a clear balm) to one lucky reader!

To win, simply like my FB page if you have not and leave a comment below stating your FB name and why would you like to win the Lip Treatment.

The giveaway will end 1 Feb 2013 1800 HRS.

Update: Congrats Fenny for winning the Lip Treatment! *Winner is picked using a random name picker~ *

XOXO,
