[Tried & Tested] Are You Ready For Halloween?

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

Halloween weekend is happening in a couple of hours and are you ready for it? I will be in New Zealand by then, but if you are like me, always looking to scare people off with makeup, you have got to check out these amazing creamy lipsticks from SHEENe Cosmetics!

The lovely people from SHEENe Cosmetics have given me the lovely rainbow colours to play with. I was a little skeptical at first, thinking the colours might stain my lips, especially wary of the black one. But when I I tried each colour on my lips, I simply had to wipe my lips off with a tissue, the colours would come off. 

From Top Left: N1, Y1, G1
From Bottom Left: S1, V2, K1
However, that would also mean these are not the long wearing type of lipstick, so be prepared and have the lipstick of your choice in your bags. Also, though the lipsticks were said to be matte, you can see the shine they are giving off on my arm swatch-ing above. Not complaining as I like my lips to have a little shine, there's always a sense of plumped lips with shine. Hehehe.

So, here's me trying out the different lipsticks with a plain nude look. You can already see the effect of each lipstick colour. With the right kind of hair colour or wig and eyeshadows, you are definitely ready to portray the scary figure you want to...

Yellow Y1 is a soft light colour for the psychedelic bananas. You might look a little washed out, so be sure to amp up on the eyes.
Green G1 just simply reminds me of Poison Ivy, don't forget the sexy cat eyes!
Light Blue S1 is so cool, play a sexy little Dr. Freeze this Halloween!
Purple V2 reminds me of a nymph/faerie. Wear more glittery eyeshadows and step out with the light wings and magic wand of yours to play the part!
This has got to be my favourite colour. It's Black K1, I know it''s a little extreme, but if you want to play an evil character or even a mime face, this is definitely a must have.
Of course, these are just some of the colours I picked out which I think are more playful, there are also the more "normal"colours for your everyday lip-wearing. Like this Beige N1 that I have below, you are definitely set to go off for work in this look!


So, have fun and have a great Halloween!

[What's New] Philosophy's hope in a jar night And Preview Their Christmas Collection

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

Thanks to philosophy, I can now pamper myself in the night as well. Not only is there HOPE for me in the day, now, there is HOPE for me in the night too! 

Introducing the philosophy hope in a jar night!

Hahahaha! Not that I have HOPE-less skin, is just that having something that works on my skin as I sleep at night, makes me feel better every morning. Did you know that your body renews itself best as you sleep (nighttime is your skin’s best opportunity for treatment and repair)? 

So why not put it to work while you have your beauty sleep?

Well, with the hope in a jar night, you can wake up to soft and visibly radiant skin. Why? Here's a little more info to it...

With philosophy’s breakthrough nighttime renewal technology, everything you imagine is possible. new hope in a jar night intense retexturizing moisturizer helps redefine your beauty sleep. it features a patented qusome delivery system that allows for better, gentler and more effective penetration of active ingredients.

The glycolic acid helps retexturize skin as it plumps the appearance of fine lines and even skin tone while the beta glucan helps strengthen skin’s natural cellular defense. It is clinically proven to help improve the signs of aging with regular use & good whole 8 hours of sleep:
• overnight, 92% felt softer, comfortably hydrated skin.**
• and in 2 weeks, 90% showed diminished fine lines.
** based on a once daily use, clinical study 
** consumer study of 48 participants

When I first tried the cream at the bloggers' party (at the whimsical rooms of Wanderlust Hotel), I was impressed by how quickly it is absorbed, leaving behind a silky feeling on my skin. It's so unlike other brands that I've tried, which can be pretty sticky and leaves a mess on the pillow.

After almost 2 weeks of using the hope in a jar night, I can find my skin feeling more supple and some of the fine lines being less visible. Together with my hope in a jar in the day, philosophy is working wonders on my skin day and night!

At the party, I also got to preview philosophy's Christmas surprises installed for us. Just purely the shoower gel, you can already find 8 of it and all of them smelt like Christmas! You say huh? But with flavours like Butter Rum Cake, Cheery Pinwheel Cookie, Granny's Apple Pie and Homemade Honey Buns, I bet you will be smelling delicious!

[What's New] The All New Whisper Cosmo

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

Whisper, a name that everyone knows has recently launched an all new revolutionary range of sanitary pads. They were the first ones to come up with sanitary pads with wings and new with the Whisper COSMO, it's set to set a new bar in sanitary pads.

Whisper took 20 years to perfect Whisper COSMO so we ladies can enjoy 360 degree freedom of movement. I have to got try it and I'm loving! At the event launch, I was already sold, so when I got home, I tried it as I went to gym (yes, just nice, it was that time of the month). It is amazingly light and flexible, and it stayed dry and soft throughout the session. You know how sometimes the overflow is so scary looking?

Well, because of the Lactoflex, a breakthrough innovation by Whisper, it's soft and thin and everything is quickly absorbed, leaving just a dot on the surface. Phew!

It is foam-like and it absorbs 3X more to prevent leakages. The bi-layered structure allows for rapid absorption and storage to keep you fresh.

They did a demonstration on the spot to prove the 3D fit to body. True to its promise, Whisper Cosmo managed to absorb liquid flowing from any angle! Brand X failed in absorption and most of the liquid ended on the table.

The launch of Whisper Cosmo was brilliantly launched with aerial yoga at Upside Motion. Together with an introduction of their ambassador - Felicia Chin. Promising 360 degree freedom of movement from the pads, you don't even have to fear being hung upside down!

At the event, I also met Michelle whom I've not met for a long time and it was great to catch up with her. Also thanks for her "modelling" for my pictures while she does the aerial yoga. :)

Grab your Whisper Como at leading supermarkets and pharmacies! Prices range from $6.50 to $8.90. Available in 24, 27 and 30cm. 


[Get The Look] Amazing Nail Art With Models Own

Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hi Huneybees,

I am a happy kid whenever there is new nail products to play with. I'm like the kid under the Christmas tree unwrapping gift after gift. In fact, who hates surprises in bright neon shades?

Models Own have recently launched some new products and have sent me 3 lovely shades and textures Artstix Nail Beads (Neon Pink), Wow Nail Art Pen (Yellow) & Ice Neon Collection (Bubblegum)

I used all 3 products to create a nail art theme for my nails and the base colour was using the Ice Neon Collection (Bubblegum). Like its name, the nail polish is a super bright shade of pink, totally screaming my kind of colour! It's difficult to find such a beautiful shade of neon without having it being too thin and watery. I simply had 2 coats of it on each nail and my nails are screaming bright pink.

What's fun about this nail polish is that you have to keep it frozen. Inspired by the trick of keeping a glow stick in a fridge to slow the reaction down and making the stick glow for longer, Models Own apply the same principle to this range of nail polishes.

The frosted bottles will withstand the cold and protect the pigments from fading. Along with keeping your Brights BRIGHTER there are many other benefits of storing polish in the fridge. Keeping it cool helps to slow down the discolouration, separation and pigment cracking that happens to polish as it get older. Ice Neon shades give an amazing matt finish – for a shiny effect apply Models Own 3-in-1 Top Coat.

For nail art addicts like me, you are definitely not a stranger to the nail art pen or brush. Other than the quirky packaging, the Wow Nail Art Pen is a must have for all who loves to doodle on their nails!

As a collaborative effort with WAH Nails again, they have come up with three new pens in primary colours - Pink, Blue and Yellow for you to match your favourite nail polish colours. Each nail pen has a duo application system consisting of a thin nib for intricate art work along with a long thin brush to add strokes and lines.

The tube is so soft, I don't even have to squeeze too hard to get the nail polish out, giving me better control while drawing on my nails.
The stripping brush is so fine and it's so easy to get different strokes easily.

And lastly, my favourite nail "gadget" for now, the Artstix Nail Beads! I got it in Neon Pink to go with the Bubblegum Ice Neon Nail Polish. Nail beads may have been around for awhile, but to get this beuatiful neon shade, I can only find it with Models Own. The beads are slightly smaller than the other brands' out there, but also because of that, it makes it easier to pack the beads together and stack them on my nail polish.

Firstly, you will need a tray to hold your beads when you pour them over your nails, so that you can pour them back into the bottle after. Upon the second layer of your nail polish, quickly pour the beads over, press it down a little and then leave it to dry. You don't even have to apply top coat on it and the nail lasted me a week, without losing a single bead.

So, combining the 3 products, this is the look I came up with for my nails. It's bright, it's funky and it definitely screams for attention. Wana see how to achieve this look? See my video below....
