Birthday Celebrations & Batam Trip! | July Recap

Continuing on my blog recaps, let’s dive into July, my birthday month! (Check out my June post here if you haven’t)  I’ve also travelled to Bali with friends for Jac’s during the same month and will be posting about the trip in a separate blog post cause otherwise this post would be too long. Once again, tons of food posts below, don’t read on an empty stomach! 😛

Easy peasy!Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_000Headed down to Wandervale EC for a client meeting.

Couldn’t resist trying McDonald’s Salted Egg Chicken Burger – I was lucky that I tried one after the complains that the salted egg was too little – so I got one with quite liberal amount, yay! Would most definitely eat one again except it was only on the menu for a limited time.Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_006

BAD CAFE THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED

Not even gonna name the cafe, both Belles recommended this cafe but that day we went, it served up lousy lemonade – granted they replaced it but their service still sucked nonetheless. You’d notice I usually don’t complain about stuff on my blog cause I don’t like to give air time to shitty things but man – this cafe is crap and if you know which it is, don’t ever go back again and I can’t wait to pop a champagne on the day they close. Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_017 Birthday Celebrations & Batam trip | Enabalista July 2016 Blog Recap_018

Is it worth it? $10 is too much for me to shell out for a piece, but it definitely hydrates my skin intensely.

Dinner at 555(?)

Ok, so the mistake we made was to take up the resort’s driver’s offer to go on a “day trip intinerary” with him and he gave us ALL THE SHITTY RECOMMENDATIONS. 🙁 So other than our Batam Plaza choice, he brought us to a bad massage place and this terrible dinner place, urgh.

Ena’s Beauty Talk | 10 New Beauty Reviews & Recommendations!

I’ve just uploaded a 2 part beauty review video on Youtube and here’s a blog post where I’ll include more photos and brief information and review of the products! 🙂

If you haven’t you can watch my Ena’s Beauty Talk – 10 New Beauty Reviews & Recommendations Part 1 on hair & skincare here!:

Ajuste UV Body Spray Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Body Lotion Dr Ben 7 Day Serum Review Enabalista_0001

Playback Organic Shampoo and Treatment, Ajuste UV Spray, Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Lotion and Dr.Ben – Nano Hyaluronic Acid Serum. In the video I only reviewed the Playback Shampoo and Treatment as I started on these earlier and haven’t had the change to use the rest enough for a proper review, but will include information and details of the other products below as well! 🙂

Ajuste UV Body Spray Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Body Lotion Dr Ben 7 Day Serum Review Enabalista_0000The products came in nicely bubble wrapped! Thanks to April Boulevard!

Playback Organic Shampoo & Treatment

I’ve been using this Playback Organic Shampoo & Treatment set for a few weeks now and I like how the shampoo gently cleanses my scalp, keeping it fresh and moisturized. I use the treatment first before washing it out and then shampoo, followed by mask after. I love the refreshing scent of the shampoo and definitely recommend this set! 🙂

Playback Organic Shampoo & Treatment Review Enabalista_0000 Playback Organic Shampoo & Treatment Review Enabalista_0001 Playback Organic Shampoo & Treatment Review Enabalista_0002Product ingredients include 8 Certified Organic Extracts, 100 Natural Botanical Extracts. For more product information and purchase online, visit here.

Ajuste UV Body Spray Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Body Lotion Dr Ben 7 Day Serum Review Enabalista_0003Ajuste UV Spray, 100% made in Japan promises to be a light and non sticky sun block spray. For more information and purchase, visit here.

Ajuste UV Body Spray Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Body Lotion Dr Ben 7 Day Serum Review Enabalista_0004Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu/Citron Lotion contains Vitamin 3 and 3 types of hyaluronic acid that lightens and intensely hydrates the skin. I’ve tried it out and my first impression is that it’s very lightweight and watery. It comes in a huge bottle and you can use it for your face and body as well. For more information and purchase, visit here.

Ajuste UV Body Spray Shinsui Uruhada Yuzu Body Lotion Dr Ben 7 Day Serum Review Enabalista_0002Dr.Ben – Nano Hyaluronic Acid Serum  for 7 Days promises to penetrate deeply into the skin with its nano-molecular hyaluronic acid for longer hydrating effects. I have yet to try this one, but am a fan of hyaluronic acid so I am quite excited and will review it on my IG or in another video review after I’ve tried it! For more information and purchase, visit here.

The Wet Brush Pop Fold

This is my new favourite hair brush! My hair ends have become very dry and damaged from multiple bleaching and dyeing and this detangling brush is super awesome! With other hair comb/brush I have issues combing through my hair ends while it’s wet but with the wet brush, combing my hair is a breeze! <3
Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0000Comes folded in a box.Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0005Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0001Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0002 Flip open the comb.Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0003Pop out the bristles.Wet Brush Pop Fold Review Enabalista_0004 How the back looks like after it’s popped out.

Highly recommended detangling brush! You can get yours from here!

The Body Shop Tea Tree 3 in 1 Wash Scrub Mask & Anti Imperfection Daily Solution

The Body Shop has added 2 new products to their Tea Tree range, the first being an innovative 3 in 1 facial wash, scrub and mask and the second being a anti imperfection daily solution serum. I’ve also been using the facial cleansing gel from the same range as a body cleanser for my back acne and it’s been great thus far. Definitely recommended for you to try if you experience acne issues like I do. For more information visit here.The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0000 The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0001 The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0002 The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0003 The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0004 The Body Shop Tea Tree Wash Scrub Mask and Daily Solution Review Enabalista_0005You can also find the Tea Tree oil as part of the range which is recommended for acne spot treatments as well as for small cuts and insect bites.

Another Tea Tree acne battling product I’d review in the video but don’t have a photo to include here is the Face Shop Make Me Sexy Body Mist with Tea Tree oil and Aloe Vera leaf juice extract! I’ve been using it for a month now and am half bottle through, I use it after I shower and towel dry – I’ve used the above tea tree cleansers and this body mist to completely replace powder talc. 🙂 If you haven’t read, Johnson and Johnson recently paid out $55M in a second lawsuit that claims their talcum powder causes Ovarian cancer – whether or not there are conclusive evidence of Talcum powder causing cancer, it is best to be safe than sorry! Previously I have used Dettol/J&J body talc powders on my back to keep my skin fresh and dry, but I have since stopped after reading about the online news article that says talc causes cancer.

Morilins Masks

I’m very excited to share about the Morilins Masks that I’ve recently received and tried, the one I have tried is the Morilins Soothing Restoring mask and I super love the Diamond Plaid thick mask sheet which feels very luxurious and it promises 5-10 times effect of your daily skin care routine (essence, serum + moisturizer) so hence i infer that it is recommended as a weekly mask. Priced at $34.90 for 5 pieces, each piece is $6.98. It might be a little pricey compared to other masks, but it’s definitely worth it considering the superior quality. The only gripe I have would be the packaging, because at $6.98/piece, the packaging can do much better. Perhaps an all silver or all gold foil packaging with a luxe feel would be more compatible for this amazing mask! For more information and purchase, visit here.

Refa for Body Massage Gel

I’ve been using Refa for Body Massage Roller for a while now, you can read about my blog post about it here. Recently I received the Refa for Body Massage Gel which is an excellent product to complement the massage roller as the massage gel has slimming, lifting and hydrating effects! I apply it generously on my calves (or wherever you would like to massage) before massaging. I’d definitely recommend this massage gel! The good news is that you get it free with any Refa massage product purchased at the Pop Up counter at Robinsons, the bad news is that it’s not available for sale, though it really should be, hopefully they will release it for sale in the future! 🙂 For more information, visit here.Refa For Body Gel Review Enabalista_0000 Refa For Body Gel Review Enabalista_0001 Refa For Body Gel Review Enabalista_0002 Refa For Body Gel Review Enabalista_0003

ZA Lip Crayons & Vibrant Moist Lip Lacquers

My favourite of the 5 is lip crayon in Magenta 232 (most left) a bright pink that glides on smoothly and feels like a lip balm! Lip crayons available from 1st Sep, lip lacquers already available in stores, exclusively at Watsons. For more colours and information visit here.

Estee Lauder BB Cushion Foundation

Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Wear BB Cushion delivers just what it promises in its name, the well loved Double Wear all day formula is now in BB Cushion form, which is why I love it! I have recommended this BB Cushion to many of my colleagues and friends because the foundation stays fresh on my skin all day.  Visit here for more information under the Estee Lauder foundations page.

Estee Lauder Foundation Cushion Stick and New Pure Colour Envy Hi Lustre Lipsticks.

Estee Lauder has recently launched their Double Wear Nude Foundation Cushion Stick which makes for convenient touch up on the go and in my videos above, I am wearing the new lipstick colour 330 Bad Angel, a sweet coral red colour. Check out the new lipsticks online here.Estee Lauder Cushion Stick and New Envy Lipsticks Enabalista_0000

Laneige New BB Cushion Pore Control

For long days, I opt for Estee Lauder’s Double Wear All Day Wear Cushion foundation but for daily wear, Laneige’s New BB Cushion Pore Control is one of my preferred options. An upgrade from the well loved BB Cushion, the new cushion now comes with the 3D Skin Fit cushion (diamond embossing) so that the right amount of product is optimally picked up. Also major loving the cool new holographic cushion exterior!

Clio Kill Cover Stamping Foundation

Last but not the least, Clio is jumping on the stamping foundation trend wagon with their new Clio Kill Cover Stamping Foundation and along with it they have launched a really cute concept “the Korean Morning Beauty Booster Recipe” to teach users how to apply their morning makeup! It goes 1. Smoothen with Kill Cover Egg Pore Primer + 2. Empower with Kill Cover Stamping Foundation + 3. Optimize with Kill Cover Airwear Skin Smoother Pact and lastly 4. Refresh with Micro Fine Oil Control Fix Mist.

I’ve tried all the products and my first impressions are, the Kill Cover Egg Pore Primer is a primer that creates an ultra smooth surface, pretty true to its name. The Kill Cover Stamping Foundation has great coverage and the best formula I’ve tried out of all the Clio Kill Cover foundations thus far. Kill Cover Airwear Skin Smoother Pact will create a very matte look, if you want the dewy look then I’d recommend avoiding the cheeks while applying this but otherwise you can use this as a finishing powder for a matte look. Last but not the least, be sure to spray the fix mist a good 15cm away for fine mist application on the face, definitely feels more refreshing than sticky (compared to say Urban Decay makeup fix spray).

Big thanks and much love to the various brands & PR for sending the products for review! All reviews & opinions are my own.

Stay Hip & Chic with BIG Hotel Singapore

Over the recent labour day holiday, Christabelle and I enjoyed our extended weekend at boutique hotel, BIG Hotel Singapore. Super love the chic, grey textured walls and its Pinterest-worthy minimalistic interior. <3

Belle and I made full use of our 1D1N with girly activities such as playing with new make up, photo taking at the alley ways/spots near by the hotel, thai food at Aroy Dee for dinner, The Daily Scoop (at School of the Arts) for desserts and masks (mutiple, yes, haha) time before we called it a night. During our fruitful staycation, we were also appropriately (mostly me, haha since Belle doesn’t really drinks coffee) with Nespresso and Cafedirect coffee, it’s sweet that BIG Hotel has a Nespresso machine in the room. Have I mentioned how much I love the chic coffee corner? 😉BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0003 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0008 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0010 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0009 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0006 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0007 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0004 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0005BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0013BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0012 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0011 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0014New cosmetics from Etude House Play 101 Sticks / cushion concealers, Laneige BB Cushion, K-Palette Rose Eyeliner, Kate Tokyo Eyeshadow Palettes, Stenders Handcream and Lipbalm.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0023 BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0024Headed back and washed up with Estee Lauder’s new micro cleansing foam and if you don’t already know about Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair serum, this stuff is the magic potion of the beauty world! I use it on nights when I need to calm redness/irritation/clear up blemishes on my skin, and it always works like a charm!

I brought along Origin’s Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, and found out that Christabelle is a huge fan of this brand and been using this mask regularly which helps with her oily skin type, once a week. Origins is an au natural skin care brand, for all you nature loving skincare fanatics! 😉

And post Origins charcoal mask, we nourished our skin with The Face Shop animal masks which I got last year and they don’t seem to be retailing any more now, but man, these smell of peaches, soooo good and its also pretty hydrating, love! Check out other The Face Shop masks currently available on their site here.

The next morning, a wake up coffee is in order…

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0028And YES I had also lugged over the new ranges of skincare goodies; shower gel, scrub, body creams from The Body Shop to try out during the staycation, best decision ever! Our bathroom and room were filled and smelled so good of summer fragrances from the Pinita Colada (Pineapple and Coconut) to Polynesian Tiare (island flowers), they’ll all launch by June 9. 😉

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0033A very cosy and bubbly lobby atmosphere when we left, ideal for friends or family to gather before heading out.

BIG Hotel Singapore Review Lifestyle Blogger Ena Teo Enabalista _0031

The comfy bed and sheets made for a great night’s rest. All in, BIG Hotel is an affordable, chic option that I’d recommend whether you’re considering for a local stay-cation or visiting from abroad. Staff we met at the hotel were also very pleasant and courteous – they definitely made our stay that much sweeter. Plus, it’s located conveniently close to Bugis MRT (if you’re taking the train down from Changi Airport, from the green line) and walking distance to Dhoby Ghaut and Little India where you can explore more of Singapore whether for shopping, dining or cultural spots. If you’re keen, you can also check out my alma-mater LASALLE College of the Arts which is literally behind BIG hotel, if you’re in luck you might coincide your stay with graduating students’ exhibitions. happening from now, 20th May to 1st June!

Thank you BIG Hotel & Chelsea for arranging the stay for review!

Estée Lauder New Pleasures Eau Fraîche

HELLO!

I’m pretty sure your holidays is getting along well! For the ladies, have you wondered what you’d like to smell like this Christmas? 😉

In light of this festive season, I would like to introduce a wonderful new scent by Estee Lauder, the Pleasures Eau Fraîche.

Estee Lauder  Pleasures Eau Fraîche

Eau Fraîche is french and it refers to Eau de Fraich which means fresh water, and that is cologne. Cologne does not have the type of essential oils perfume does, and is not as strong -smelling or long-lasting. Therefore the new Estee Lauder Pleasures Eau Fraîche is a sweet, light floral fragrance for women!

pleasures_eau_fraiche_model_shot_Expires_Dec_2012LR

Check out the beautiful Constance Jablonski in this Estee Lauder video for Pleasures Eau Fraîche:

Isn’t it lovely?

GLEM002 - ESTEELAUDER_PLEASURES

For those who are olfactory inclinced, you will be keen to know that:

in pleasures Eau Fraîche, the proportion and balance of pleasures Eau de Parfum have been modified, revealing a new olfactive experience. This re-balanced impression opens with top notes including pure white lilies and violet leaves with even more airy clarity.  The crisp green elements are fresher and more watery. The floral heart of black lilacs, white peonies, pink roses and exotic karo-karounde blossoms smells even more petally and dewy.  The signature baie rose spiciness, although still present and vibrational in Eau Fraîche, is more intense in the eau de parfum, as is the underlying warmth of the floral heart.

 

But of course, reading it won’t justify the smell at all, so go ahead, check out the new fragrance at any Estee Lauder counters! 🙂

Every 50ml is priced at SGD$86.

If you’re a guy and still wondering what gift to get for a modern and young woman like your girlfriend, sister, best friend or crush then this is really a great Christmas gift choice!

Other than the new  Pleasures Eau Fraîche, Estee Lauder has an excellent variety of gift choices for women this year. Check out my next post for more Estee Lauder Christmas limited edition gift sets! 🙂

My Flawless with Estee Lauder Workshop Experience

Hello beautiful people!

How are you doing today? I do hope October’s been treating you well? October’s been a whizz for me, I’ve been attending talks – perhaps a little too much that even my friends are surprised at all the talk shots I take on my Instagram, haha!

Here’s an update on the event I shared previously, not just a talk mind you, it’s better! It’s a workshop by Estee Lauder where my friend, Ming Min and I put to action what we learn in class, on the spot by creating our own Flawless looks with Estee Lauder’s new and broader range of Double Wear foundation! 😉

Without further ado, I’ll let the photos do most of the talking~

Here our host is sharing with us the benefits of Estee Lauder skincare and makeup products before going into the steps of creating a Flawless look.

Check out the slides shown at the workshop here 😉 – Flawless with Estee Lauder Workshop Slides

Various make up brushes available for each individual participant at the workshop, here’s my set!

Adeline, the make up artist/instructor for my table sharing with us the 2 types of primer Estee Lauder provides. A matt one and another is illuminating one. I used the matt one, Ming used the illuminating one, so later you can see the difference in the photos we took. We were also taught we can combine both in our make up, use the matt one for our T-zones and illuminating one for the rest. 😉Here Adeline is sharing on eyeshadow palette. There was one different coloured palette for each of us, but I shared the same one with the lady next to me cause I liked her palette. 🙂

This my dears, is the really pretty eyeshadow palette I used that day. It’s Enchanted Berries Eyeshadow Palette! 😉

The beautiful array of Estee Lauder crystal lipsticks, eye shadow palettes, Double Wear and Double Wear Light foundations! 🙂

The stars of the workshop, the Double Wear Foundations. For the month of October, Estee Lauder supports the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign through the sales of the special edition Perfectionist Serum with the Pink Ribbon packaging.

The 2012 Campaign theme, “Courage. Believe in a world without breast cancer. Know we’re here until its true.”highlights the Company’s 20 year commitment to defeating breast cancer through education and medical research. This milestone year is dedicated to the tremendous courage of Evelyn Lauder and her unwavering commitment to eradicate breast cancer. – Yahoo News

For more information on Estee Lauder’s charitable work on raising Breast Cancer Awareness and supporting Breast Cancer research check out the article on Yahoo News. Also follow their news and updates on their Facebook page here.

Here’s my before and after looks from the workshop! My skin is visibly more even, eyebags less visible and features are more defined. ^^ I am wearing the Double Wear Light in the picture because I don’t like to have foundation that is too thick. And also thanks to Estee Lauder’s skincare products that I’ve been using, I don’t need the Double Wear with stronger coverage for my skin. ^^My lovely friend Ming min, in her before and after looks from the workshop. She remarks that the difference isn’t obvious in the photo, which is a good thing as it shows she has good skin and features that doesn’t change much with make up right? (x But in real life, u can see that her skin is more polished and illuminates with a glow from the illuminating primer! We would both recommend the illuminating primer for girls who want a natural glow in their make up. 😉

Us besties together since 2004/5 ! >.<

 

Funny faces never go out of style. 😉

Last but not the least, the door gift from the workshop! Ming and I attended as guests, so we didn’t claim a $100 (price of the workshop ticket) worth of Estee Lauder product but we did go back very blessed with 3 Estee Lauder products, 2 of which are their top sellers!

Check out these beauties: 1. Advance Night Repair Eye Serum 2. Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and 3. Advance Night Repair 4. Pretty blue pouch

I know, so awesome right? I’ve been wanting an ANR travel vial just like this one so that I can bring it with me when I travel, but I decided, especially after using the ANR for a month and finding it so awesome, that I will GIFT this whole set in my blog – Enabalista’s 2nd Birthday Giveaway instead. So that one of my followers can share in my joy too! Watch out for my next post which will contain details of the Giveaway! 😉

Our sexy night didn’t end there… we went for a very romantic stroll and seating by the harbour… x) Anyway, just enjoy these photos as I enjoyed the views that night! 😉



This looks like a Salmon sushi, doesn’t it? x)
That’s all for now folks!

Wonder no more, because it’s no secret that Estée Lauder produces one of the best and longest lasting foundation!

“A woman’s beauty is not in her features, or the shade of her skin, but her confidence.” – Estée Lauder

Estée Lauder understands that women around the world are in search of a long-lasting foundation in their perfect shade to even skintone, conceal freckles, pores and imperfections and create a flawless look. An Estee Lauder research insight revealed that 94% of women are wearing the wrong shade of foundation.

Therefore, to meet this need,  Estee Lauder is releasing its extended breadth of shades in Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10/PA++ and Stay-in-Place Dual Effect Powder Makeup SPF 10/PA++ to match every woman’s beautiful skintone.

Stay-in-Place Dual Effect Powder Makeup SPF 10/PA++ has a unique applicator that lets you go from foundation to finishing powder instantly. Use the sponge side to create a smooth foundation finish. Use the velvety side to apply over liquid makeup as a semi-matte finishing powder.

This innovative powder promises comfortable, all-day wear and stay-true color coverage that won’t transfer, settle or streak. It also stays fresh and looks natural for up to 8 hours, even through nonstop activity. Other benefits include:

–        Adjustable medium-to-full coverage

Ena Vlogs | Estée Lauder Violet Underground & China Doll Hair

Hello!

I hope your September is going well? I know mine sure is! (;

It’s yet another Ena Vlog! ARE YOU EXCITED?! On average, it takes about 10 times as long to product a vlog compared to a blog post, and I’m not exaggerating. I take about 30 min to write and publish a post (mostly, if I don’t need to edit the photos or prepare to take the photos) but I take about 5 hours to film, edit and publish a vlog. Even if it’s about 5 min long. @-@ Haha! But I’m enjoying making these vlogs. Well I do hope I get faster at it. And more humorous. And more entertaining. And more awesome. 😀

Ena’s August in Photos (:

Hello !

First off, a big WELCOME HUGGGG + KISSESSS to my new readers who found out about me through my FB page ad. campaign! Thanks to FB, who generously offered me $50 ad. campaign fund to reach out to more readers through FB! (:

Next up, I have a whole line up of posts from outings with my friends in August, most of them which are food related. All you foodies, get ready! I have posted some photos on Instagram, follow me @ena_teo if you’re on it. If not, check my pictures out here. My Instagram is pretty much a visual folder of all the things that make me happy; friends, food, coffee, colours & pretty pictures. (:

Now I’ll let the pictures do the talking!

If you haven’t seen it, here’s the Stella McCartney Brass Heart & Key necklace I won from a contest organized by Clozette.

The necklace retails online for £235 on the UK website here. Thank you Stella McCartney & Clozette! (: Been wanting to wear it but I find the chain a little too short and have not been able to match it for an appropriate occasion yet. >.< Also the folks at Clozette are real nice! Many thanks to Anna’s hospitality when I was at their office collecting the prize. She’s from the Philippines and we had a good chat about the beautiful beaches there, mainly me saying how much I’d like to go to Boracay, haha!

Next up a picture I took with the lovely Kat on the first day we were back in school for a combined lecture! It’s been 4 weeks / 1 month since we started school, how time flies! it’s the finale year of degree and I will definitely miss school when it’s over! TIME! Don’t go by so fast! Slow down! >.<

 

I took these pictures on the same night I attended the Hermes the Gift of Time exhibition and Underscore Flight Magazine launch, on the bus ride home. Photos were processed on IPhone app Camera360. ^^

My nail candy thanks to Estee Lauder. This is in Tempting Melon (which I thought turned out to a be a beautiful & trendy coral colour) plus ribbon stickers. I did the manicure on my own btw, nice right? ^^
I love coffee! (If you don’t already know >.<) This is Mac Cafe’s Caramel Macchiato (means steamed milk).

This was meant to be on Instagram but it never got uploaded cause of bad internet connection. Say hi to my 2 new puppies, Lulu & Lala!

JUST KIDDING! They don’t exist irl. They are merely printed on a pouch my Aunt gave which I am now using to keep my reading specs safe from scratches. Makes me happy just to see them everyday. ^^

 

Okie! That’s all folks!

As you should know by now from reading my blog (see my recent Vivid Shine Collection Post / Review Part 1 and Part 2 if you have not), Estée Lauder’s products are not only prettily packaged, smells lovely but are also made with the best quality ingredients and   technology! Winning a S$200 Estée Lauder Hamper will surely put a smile on your face.

Do let me know if you win the contest because you heard about the contest first from here (plus if you won it with the “tip” I gave you 😉 ) cause I’d love to celebrate your win with you!

Do also like and share about the contest with all your girlfriends so that all of you can stand a chance to win. I believe in sharing and that sharing breeds winning. Winning is great but winning with friends is better! This is such a great quote that I need to “quot-ify”:

“I believe in sharing and that sharing breeds winning. Winning is great but winning with friends is better!”

Ena Vlogs | Everyday Mermaid Look Featuring Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour Vivid Shine Collection

I filmed a very short vlog last night, about the make up look I had. It’s been a very long time since I last vlogged and it took me a long time, almost 2 hours to get it right, despite it being a 2.5 min long video. Vlogging makes me exceedingly self-conscious because I personally don’t think I look very good on screen, only at certain angles and filming really accentuates that fact. I really take my hat off to youtube stars (Michelle Phan, Xteener, Frmheadtotoe) who are so natural at what they do. They are not only attractive but exceedingly confident which adds to their appeal.  Maybe, hopefully I’ll get better/more comfortable, with more vlogs.

PURE COLOR VIVID SHINE
Launching in August 2012

This Fall Estée Lauder and Tom Pecheux dare you to play in a world of bold, luminous and impactful color with new Pure Color Vivid Shine – the latest wave of shades that dazzle eyes, lips and nails with sparkling shine and chromatic color. This modern spectrum of color features new finishes and textures. Pure Color Vivid Shine is a collection of bold shades for women and makeup artists who want to indulge their love of color.

As a makeup artist, I need vivid color. Vivid Shine is inspired by the models and women I work with in Fashion.  I created this collection so every woman could play with color that is vibrant and alive.” -Tom Pecheux, Creative Makeup Director, Estée Lauder

PRISMATIC EYES                    

Accentuate eyes in a range of seductive, stylish shades that deliver maximum color impact and dimension with the newest Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows. Magnified, multi-faceted, magnificent, these future forward shadows define where innovation and high-style meet with a high-performance formula comprised of advanced technology and texture.

True Vision™ Technology — a crystalline (polymer) laminate that magnifies and amplifies color with a glowing metallic finish envelopes lids with high-intensity pigments in one velvety smooth application and a “tribrid” system of liquid, powder and gel all-in-one, creates exceptional, non-creasing, non-fading color and long-lasting wear that won’t fade. The formula also reaches new heights and dimensions with a bouncy malleable texture, for high-definition color impact that can go from matte to the highest chromatic shine. Accompanied by a specially designed sponge-mitt applicator, these versatile shadows can be worn dry for a sophisticated look, or wet for a bold, full color finish – making them every makeup artists’ dream!

Pure Color Gelee Powder Eyeshadows bring color to life in two weightless, incredibly smooth finishes:

Vivid Shine Finish: In this collection, there are 6 limited edition Vivid Shine shadows that feature a unique blend ofspecially treated glow and metallic pearl duo complex.  This luminous finish catches and reflects light, creating the purest levels of multi-dimensional color illumination for unforgettable eyes that glow!

Vivid Shine Finish (Limited Edition) Pure Color Gelée Powder EyeShadow in Ultra Marine is featured in the vlog above.

Cyber Metallic Finish:  These 10 shimmering Cyber Metallic shades transform eyes to a hyper-metallic, futuristic look.

AMPLIFIED LIPS

Saturated with color, sparkling shine and dimension, lips are the center of attention with new Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick. A breakthrough in lip color never experienced before, these gorgeous lipsticks range is a seductive spectrum of shades from vivid to sublime and are infused with powerful technologies and benefits.

True Vision™ Technology envelopes lips with decadent color, and a sheer, lustrous shine, while Amplified Dimensional Pearl Technology is a unique diamond-like pearl cluster consisting of up to eight different shaped and colored pearls. These pearls fuse together to reflect a multi-hued, multi-faceted spectrum of color for an amplified, sparkling finish on lips.  Each shade contains silver and gold sparkle pearls which neutralize lips, making them look beautiful on all skin tones for a faceted, sequined shine that sparkles.

Lips are further enhanced with Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick through exceptional benefits that include:

–        A new moisturizing texture saturates lips with sheer, creamy emollients that smooth and condition lips for hours – increasing lip moisturization by 23% in 4 weeks!
–        A natural polymer complex creates a pliable, glossy film network, providing lips with a sophisticated, dimensional shine that lasts for hours.
–        A high performance wax complex forms a matrix that entraps emollients and pigments in place on lips for lasting coverage and stay-true color in each and every shade.

Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Electric Mauve is featured in the vlog above.

For images of the full lipstick range and swatches, check out Gouldy’s reviews here.

I will be reviewing another set of eyeshadow, lipstick and nail lacquer with swatches from the same collection in another post. So stay tuned!

My Estée Lauder Makeover Experience

Estée Lauder’s Makeover preview night was a blast! And I’m not saying that simply because I’m an advocate for them but because it was really well organized; upon registration, hors d’oeurve, to the makeover, hair styling, photo shoot, collection of the complimentary photo and till the product purchase and redemption counter. My friends and I were remarking about how unexpectedly enjoyable the makeover was. Experiencing the makeover for the first time with my friends added a lot of excitement and joy to it. ^^

Intro was really long huh, I’ll now let the pictures do the talking. (;

Hair Styling @ Vive Salon

The evening started with hair styling at Vive Salon. The other 2 advocates and I had our hair washed/rinsed before our styling. Btw, that’s Jac‘s back view with her red Kate Spade bag.(: I was attended to by Gina, so if you like how my hair was styled, you can look for her to recreate the look or get her expertise to design a look for you. Vive Salon is on the 5th level of Paragon.

Pre Estée Lauder Makeover

After our hair was styled, we proceeded to the makeover area which takes up most of Paragon’s level one atrium, just in front of Coach boutique. That’s my au natural face and my fringe pinned up! I really love the Estée Lauder’s make up box with all the skincare and cosmetic goodies… It’s like a girl’s dream to own one and being skilled to create the magic on herself and on others. Speaking of which, one of my upcoming goals is to attend a course on professional/semi-pro make up so that I can learn how to better apply make up as well as teach others! (:

Estée Lauder Romantic Look

This was the look I chose for the makeover! Romantic look, with a darker purple eyeshadow. The lady featured on pamphlet is also one of Estée Lauder’s social media advocate, Eunice Leong.

With Estée Lauder MUA Tanny

Picture taken with the make up artist Tanny who created my look. (: She looks unbelievably young for her age (40) because she has been using Estée Lauder’s acclaimed Advance Night Repair (ANR) for almost 20 years, since her late teens. I was very impressed that she started using it since she was so young and she said it was because it’s due to her aunty’s influence who recommended it to her. I asked her how long a 100ml bottle can last her, and she says 3 months. Which is not bad considering how some product lasts only a month long.

A picture with Joan from Estée Lauder with a bevy of models behind us.

There were quotes from Estée Lauder models printed on the walls and this quote by Joan Smalls was on the wall near where I had my makeover and it’s also very close to my personal definition of beauty.

As advocates, we had video interview conducted individually, to be posted on to the event website (which I will upload the link when it’s out, I am both excited and apprehensive about how it turns out and how i look on screen! :P) and one of the question asked was “What is your definition of beauty.” And my answer is:

“Beauty to me is having a positive outlook in life and having a confident personality.”  – Ena Teo Jia En

I thought of this even before I saw Joan Small’s quote okay! ^^ Anyway I’m inspired to design my own “wall/ picture quote”. I shall and then upload on Pinterest, lol.

My lovely friend Belle, Pre Makeover Look

Meet my lovely friend Christabelle, in her pre-makeover look. I love how we are comfortable in our own skin without makeup! Girls, always remember to strive to have good radiant skin so that make up is only an added bonus to enhance your features, add (trendy/for vanity’s sake) colour to your face!

Hair Styling done by Vive Salon

After the make up, there are two rows of counters dedicated to hair styling by Vive Salon personnel.

Photo attack on V rejected

V here refused to be photographed by me. ): She looks good without make up btw! But alas, I think she is shy.

YL all calm and composed

YL’s all calm and composed as she is enjoying her makeover by Tanny as well.

After we all had our makeovers and hair styled, we had a group photo-taking! I was telling Belle and YL after the makeover that I was very happy to have them down for the event. Because truly, when Joy is shared, it is doubled and moreover I had 3 friends with me so my Joy was tripled! I am so blessed. :’)

Speaking of blessed, I am glad I got to meet Wee Tsu, one of the winner of the giveaway and her invite, Rachel. We took a picture for memory but she requested not to post the photo. It was really nice getting to meet and know them. I hope I get to interact more in the future with my blog/FB followers in real life!

Group Shot with Belle, YL & V
Estée Lauder Makeover Group Shot 2
Behind the scene photo of my individual photo shoot. Haha!

The photographer was amazingly fast, he was like “thunder-lighting” fast, as Belle would say. The group and individual shoot time was all of about 5 minutes respectively!

My Estée Lauder Makeover Photo

There were about 7 looks taken and I chose to develop a more offbeat look for my take home photo because it’s different from what most chose. This is a “Hey-I’m-peering-over-my-vanity-table-oh-you-caught-me-oops” look. I totally won’t have dared to pose like that but it was the photographer’s idea. Told you he was good. (;

Estée Lauder Preview Night Door Gift

The Estée Lauder preview night door gift included a Sensuous Nude perfume, Tempting Melon nail lacquer and pure color 18 Bois de Rose lipstick.

Scene of CBD from Singapore Flyer

Right after the makeover, YL and I cabbed down to the flyer where her family was waiting for us. She redeemed tickets from her company and invited me along! It was a truly eventful night for us. I will blog about my first experience on the flyer in another post, so this is only a teaser/preview photo! (:

Do follow Estée Lauder Sg FB page here for updates as well as be ready for giveaways when they are happening! (;

To end off, I want to thank Estée Lauder’s generosity in hosting my friends and FB giveaway winners. Many thanks also to the lovely team at Estée Lauder who worked hard and is still working hard all of this week to allow us and many more women to have their “best” look!  Having experienced it and had so much fun with my friends, I would strongly recommend you to register for the event with your best friend(s).

Blessed 22nd Birthday

Hello! Firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to all my new readers, as I have a substantial amount of new readers from my current giveaway. (See here.) Secondly I would  like to thank all my friends who have supported me in this giveaway by liking my Facebook page, liking the giveaway and sharing the giveaway with their friends on Facebook.

Also, I have activated my personal Facebook account’s Subscribers function so please subscribe here! There isn’t much public information at the moment, as I have not yet figured out the privacy settings on Facebook (taking a bit more time than I expected) but I will figure it out! (: When I’m done, I will also add a personal account Facebook badge on the side bar of my blog. There’s so many things I’d like to do, like adding a page on people who inspire me, I need to stop procrastinating!

So, you should probably know by now that I’m a 22 year old lady! Woohoo! *twirls around with confetti in the air* I would like to thank my Father God in heaven, my family and friends who have supported me through the last 21 years and made me who I am today. Also thank you all who have taken the special effort to wish me Happy Birthday in face, call, SMS, Twitter and Facebook! (Yes in that order, I am particular like that. :P)

My birthday week isn’t even over yet but I am already overflowing with blessings from the 5 weekdays and I am so grateful to God and everyone who has made all these happiness and joy of mine possible. :’) Thank you, thank you and thank you.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram and Twitter, you’d know that I was at Estée Lauder’s HQ office on Monday evening as I was shortlisted to be their Social Media Advocate. After an interview with the lovely Estée Lauder marketing ladies Amelia and Joan, I was confirmed to be selected as Estée Lauder’s Social Media Advocate. It’s an appointment which I will soon update across all my social media platform profiles. I am extremely elated and grateful. 🙂

On my birthday itself, I went out with bestie @Yinglingahh for dinner, shoe-shopping (her gift to me) plus desserts! She wrote a really sweet blog post for me, thanks dear! As she wish to be more low key, I won’t post the link to her blog, but it’s on my blog somewhere! 🙂

Shoe Shopping with YL

Our Cafe Bistro East Side Brownie.

I12’s Cafe Bistro East Side Brownie

It was too much for us, we only finished about half a brownie each! The serving size is great, the brownie is compact and not the fluffy kind. The vanilla ice-cream is awesome, the dessert was definitely too sweet, but I’ve got a sweet tooth anyway so I don’t mind. By the way, Cafe Bistro at I12 Katong has a 50% discount for their coffees, cakes and pastries after 9pm. They also have a one for one main course promotion on weekdays, great deals people!

Dinner with Jingwei on Wed at Bedok Point Bishamon. This dish, my friends is super tasty, I love it! Thanks Jingwei for the treat, I am so loved by my friends. ^^

Then when I returned home… guess what was waiting for me ?
