This is a bit overdue on my terms but the first week I was back, I had a nice lunch with Virginia who distributes Leaders Clinic products to Singapore at Cedele (one of my favourite places to eat – Chicken and Wild Mushroom Soup to die for and their Mushroom and Feta Tart). She thought I might be interested in trying a few of their products out to give my own opinion about their masks and things so here’s your informational haul :)
About Leaders Clinic:
Leaders Clinic Clinie is a very popular skincare company in Korea, formed by a group of well-known Korean dermatologists who created their own mark in the skincare company scene. In fact, they’re so popular that they average about 500,000 masks sold monthly and are undoubtedly the hottest clinical brand in Korea. Not only Korea either – it’s loved in Japan, China and Hong Kong and I managed to snap a picture yesterday when I was in Hong Kong at Mannings (Guardian):-----> Read More
I was kindly contacted by Pearlin http://www.reviewantiaging.com to attend a facial sponsored by Touche Elite at the Orchard Hotel Shopping Arcade! Read on to see how you can get this $428 facial for only $68 – for Singapore Only! This is NOT a contest, the discount is a giveaway, anyone who mentions the password will get the promotion, you don’t even have to win! Read on!
WARNING: This post is not for the faint hearted. Think excessive stress, chocolate and a post-exam face and that’s what you get. You might think, on Youtube, she looks flawless but babe it’s the camera. Here, the lights don’t lie – unfortunately. I guess I could have very well not have taken pictures of my naked face, but that would defeat the purpose of an informative post.-----> Read More
Beauty FYI: Elizabeth Arden 100th Anniversary Promotions – 9th – 15th July
Elizabeth Arden is currently having their 100th Anniversary Limited Edition Sets currently selling like hotcakes at counters from the 9th to 15th of July and I must say these babies are adorable. I met up with Elizabeth Wan, part of the marketing team at Elizabeth Arden for lunch at the Blue Mist Cafe and was able to get a glimpse of the upcoming promotions at the office, which was beautiful by the way.
She’s trying to take out the lip protectant, next to her is one of the new fragrances coming out and the red door lipstick next to the box. I have to say that the lipstick is probably one of the most interesting limited edition items. It’s a beautiful sparkly hollywood red lipstick only going for $19.90 each, but apparently its sold out currently as the promotions started yesterday!-----> Read More
I visited the Topshop makeup stand @ ION and I must say, it’s quite a selection of products – lip glosses, eyeshadow trios, tints, bronzers, blushes and lots of nail polishes. All of the blushes were sold out before I got there but I have to say the makeup packaging is quite the adorable. I couldn’t take many pictures so here is one:
But I did sneakily note down a price list for all of you interested. Most of the things were 13 dollars, it’s affordable and there is a promotion – something along the lines of buy $60 worth of Topshop stuff, with at least 1 makeup item.. and get a free makeup tote (btw thats a ton of makeup if you’re talking sixty!)-----> Read More
Confused at the counter? Don’t worry, I’ve tried my best to give you a guide to each finish and a few swatches of my own M.A.C lipstick collection and honestly, It’s pretty simple really.
In order of how pigmented the finishes are from least to greatest:
The only finish I didn’t purchase any lipsticks from. Why? Little to no color pay off and a quiet sheen. It’s too sheer, it’s a bit useless actually but it does have a bit of moisturizing power. It’s like a tinted moisturiser. They look hot in the tube but it’s like the chiffon on top, maybe its that lipstick you use when you don’t want to wear anything that day and just want a little boost or as an addition to another lip color. Here’s a swatch from (www.beautyliciouslove.com), an external blog so you get what I mean:
