Yesterday was a fun Watson's Beauty Day Out ! It was held at 7 Adam (at Adam Park). The canapes served at 7 Adam were so yummy, I must go there for dinner one day. Apart from being an enjoyable evening discovering a host of new beauty products, I also got to see a whole bunch of my fellow bloggers too.By the way, do you notice the updated Watsons brand logo? The shape and font has changed to be more contemporary... you'll see this new logo everywhere pretty soon :)
Don't be jealous ok... I show you my goodie bag...
Tadah!OMG, so many of my favourite beauty goodies! (Don't worry, I'll be sharing the love soon by organising giveaways). Meanwhile, here's what's in store at a Watson's near you...For skin care, look out for the new AQUALABEL Anti-Aging line developed by Shiseido (this line is in a champagne/gold coloured packaging), the SENKA Perfect range which is also by Shiseido, New Generation OLAY Regenerist, DR.WU Clinical Skincare & PURE BEAUTY's new and improved Pomegranate Antioxidant Series.
Blogger Moonberry is fronting the OLAY Regenerist line of products. She was sharing her beauty routine with us at the Beauty Day Out.
I'll review the DR.WU products soon, as lots of you are asking about that. Promise!
For Cosmetics (my Fav topic!), there's ROCK BEAUTY's Nail Rock and Eye Rock ranges, ELITE brand of cosmetics which will be exclusive to Watsons, HEROINE MAKE, CANDY DOLL, JEWELOVE, and EYEMAZING.Elite Model Cosmetics is trendy and inspired by runway fashion. Best thing about it, apart from all the fun colours, is that it's affordable enough to help all girls "be a supermodel in your own way". (Price range is from SGD$7.90 to $26.90)
The signature product is the Fantastic Primer! I have this in my goodie bag, and I am in love with it.
The texture of this translucent gel is light and non greasy, it feels good on my skin... plus it helps keep skin matt and helps foundation to stay on. Going to use it under my make up for my next photoshoot tomorrow.Rock Beauty is Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun!!!!!!! They have Eye Rock designer liner which is a 60s inspired winged flick (just transfer it onto your eye) and Crystal tattoo transfers for your eye area.
Manicures are made easy... with Nail Rock designer nail wraps. These don't need water, just stick on to bare nails and file them down. Takes about 15 minutes to apply, no drying time and lasts about 7 days. It's $9.90 for standard stickers, and $14.90 for 3D stickers. Each pack contains 16 wraps in different sizes for fingers and toes.
Heroine Make is a Japanese cosmetics brand. Their Long & Curl Mascara was voted no.1 in Japan at the Best Cosme Awards in 2009 and 2010.But what I'm most excited about is the new BB Mineral Loose Powder! I have mine in Shade #2 which is natural, and there's also a lighter shade #1 available.
The coverage is long lasting and very natural. I used this over my current (ettusais) BB cream, and it worked well to mattify my face. Love Love Love! Also going to use this product at my photoshoot tomorrow, but will use it over my current (Loreal Lucent) Foundation. :)
Eyemazing lashes will hit Watsons stores on the 5th of March.. can't wait! This brand of eyelashes enhances volume while still looking natural. I have a trial pair of Jewelove (known as Jewelrich in Japan) false eyelashes which I wil use tomorrow. It has a clear lashband which I love because it will be comfy and will look seamless on my eyelid. From Candy Doll I'm excited for the new lipsticks which are highly pigmented and moisturising and promise to create a natural nude look like Japanese girls. :)I'm usually not a fan of oral supplements because I can never maintain such routines. But with The BRANDS's Inner Shine range, it's kinda like healthy snacking. Lol
Their latest product is the Marine Collagen Essence Strip ($30 for a pack of 10 strips), it increases absorbability of collagen in our bodies. Each strip only contains 12kcal and is a yummy portable treat. It's kinda like a gummy jelly and tastes like berry fruit juice.... hooray for feeding my skin from within.
I've tried their prune essence before, and yesterday was my first time trying their berry essence drink with grapeseed extract. All Yums!
For those interested in slimming products, GLOW IGNITE 2.0 ($128 for 60 capsules) is the first of it's kind 100% natural propriety blend of powerful fat burning botanical extracts, clinically proven to promote weight loss. ( Visit Glow website for more info)Did you know that TONI&GUY is the largest independent salon chain worldwide with over 409 salons in over 44 countries? Impressive! This year, you'll find them on the shelves at Watsons!
4 Collections to looke out for - Casual, Classic, Glamour and Creative... all with a range of stylingproducts to achieve different styles. Of course, apart from styling products, they also have shampoos, conditioners and masks for different hair types.
I have the Heat Protection Mist ( a must have for any styling involving heat, like with hair dryers or irons), it's $21.90 for a 150ml spray bottle. And the Sea Salt Texturising Spray ($24.90 for 200ml bottle). The sea salt spray is from their casual range. It has a light hold and gives you a tousled natural look.. like beach hair (without the sand and sweat lol). This will do my fine limp hair wonders :)
