NEW ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Bloggers’ Event & Review

Hi guys! ๐Ÿ˜€

A while ago I attended ZA’sย Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Bloggers’ Event
and here’s snippets of how it went! ๐Ÿ˜‰

ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 2 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 3 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 4 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 5 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 6 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 7 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 8 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 9 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista 10 ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge Enabalista

The entire hall was decked out in varying hues of pink with black accents,
with lots of “Fun Facts” about lips
and booth activities/games for us bloggers to take part in, including match the cards and
“My Lip Personality”!

Speaking of which, my reading is as such:

“Bow-shape lips”
Personality
You are an expressive, seductive person who likes to fly with her own wings.
You pursue the things you love fearlessly and speak your mind..

Love Life
You need someone who stimulates you both mentally and physically.

Celebrities
Hayden Panettiere, Reese Witherspoon

About 80% true. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Review of the NEW ZA Rich-Glam Liquid Rouge

I personally find the new liquid rouge a very unique blend of lipgloss and lipstick.
Imagine your favourite lipstick, now in liquid consistency.
It is unexpectedly non sticky, unlike how some lip gloss is and it has pretty decent staying power,
up to half a day, like the regular lipsticks.
It’s formulation is inspired by ladies who desire the shine of lip gloss with the pigmentation of lipsticks! ๐Ÿ˜‰

At $18.90 a pop, in stores from 30 Jan 2014.
ZA can be bought at most Watsons stores island wide in Singapore. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Bright Lights & Warm Hearts

Although it’s over, I love Christmas seasons because of the lovely lights,
good food and warm gatherings of family and friends!

Pause for a moment, take a breath and let’s rewind back to Christmas
to take a look at the pretty lights and outfit I wore. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Morning Beauty Routine!

Hello my lovelies!

Morning Skincare Beauty Routine

Check out my usual face, at work, with no filter! ๐Ÿ˜›

Today I’m sharing a vlog of my current morning beauty routine! It’s a video that I’ve been wanting to do for the longest time, every morning as I run through the same routine, I imagine how fun it will be to share my experience and tutorial with all of you! So FINALLY here it is! ๐Ÿ˜€

I didn’t state on the video, I have combination skin; normal with oily T-zone and I’m concerned with enlarged pores on nose and cheeks area. So acne-care, hydration and whitening (lightening of blemishes) is important to me in my skincare. I also take care that all the skincare and make up products I use are non-comodegenic (does not clog pores). I’ve been using this range of products for about a year now. Also, I’m 23 going 24 this year. So skincare products for me have to be affordable as much as it is effective. As for make up, I believe in paying more for good quality foundation, blusher and eyeliner. While lip colour can be bought at cheaper prices (usually they are priced cheaper too) as I usually change my lip colour everyday depending on my mood and what I wear.

Products featured, in sequence:

Skincare:
Johnson & Johnson Clean & Clear Deep Action Cleanser with Microbeads
Johnson & Johnson Baby Cooling Powder (Back)
Johnson & Johnson Clean & Clear Essentials Oil Control Toner
Hada Labo Whitening Lotion
Hada Labo UV Whitening Emulsion

Make Up:
Estee Lauder Illuminating Perfecting Primer
Estee Lauder Double Wear Moisture Powder Stay in Place Makeup
Estee Lauder Pure Colour 01 Violet Underground Cyber Metallic
Maybelline Impact Express Smooth Felt Liner
Star Lash Golden Ratio Eyebrow Pencil
The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX Cushion Blusher in Coral
Mentholatum Q-10 Lip Gel / Maybelline Baby Lips
Etude House Lipstick in Coral (Not sure what range it falls under, bought it on offer in 2013)

I say “mmm-mhmm” too much in the video.

I will film another “My Night Beauty Routine” soon as well as
“My Top 10 Holy Grail Beauty Products” videos so do look out for them! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me know if you have any other good video ideas that I can do! ๐Ÿ™‚

Some pics I took the day I filmed the video:

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 32,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 12 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Jean Yip R6 & Clarity Facial Review

Many readers come across my blog because they googled “New York Skin Solutions (NYSS) Review” and read my blog post about it.

However, after completing 20 facial sessions at a hefty price of averaging $110/facial, I decided that NYSS facials are too costly,
hard to book (they advertise a lot and get a lot of clients and hence busy schedule), and that my skin condition has improved markedly and thus I don’t need to continue such an expensive package with them.

I had the chance to enjoy a complimentary Jean Yip R6 facial, which is customized and originally priced at $488, thanks to Clozette.com
and Jean Yip for running a Clozette members’ privilegeย (Now closed).

Jean Yip R6 Skin Revolution Customized Treatment_0

My review of Jean Yip R6 Facial is that it is very good. I tried it a few months back at the Plaza Sing branch and it was a really in depth cleansing treatment. ย My beautician is Mandy and she’s got good skills. That’s the main reason why I decided to sign up for a facial package with them, not the R6 package ($488/facial) as it is too costly for me at the moment. To me, the most important thing for a facial package is – affordability/price followed by the skills of the beautician. A basic one would suffice for me, as I am still young and my skin just needs basic cleansing and maintanance at the moment, now that most of my acne issues have cleared.

As a big fan of facials, I believe in facials because they have indeed helped me to improve my then acne prone skin condition and now, help me to maintain a relatively acne clear skin condition and given me so much more confidence in life.ย But, I am a young adult, with bills and study loans to pay, so I feel the pinch and I do not enjoy paying the hefty price to each facial even though I know it helps my skin condition.

Therefore I signed up for the Clarity facial at $90/facial for 10 sessions and that is a discounted rate because I told them I wanted the cheaper package, one that would meet my budget and needs.ย I have completed two sessions of the Clarify facials, I am satisfied with the services of Jean Yip (Plaza Sing branch) in terms of the scheduling, follow up and beautician’s service rendered. I don’t think there is any major difference treatment result on my skin compared to the basic facial package by NYSS thus Jean Yip would be more value for money in terms of a more basic facial treatment, and have better scheduling experience.

I still feel that $90/facial is expensive because with $90, there’s so many other things I can spend it on; have several good meals or 1-2 pieces of clothings/shoes. But that said, like many girls, beauty comes at a price, and for the treatment and service provided by Jean Yip, I would still say that it is an investment. Expensive, but necessary to me. I will still continue to be on a lookout for alternative facial providers of the same effectiveness/service standard but at a lower price. Consumers these days are hard to please indeed. ๐Ÿ™‚
