The Body Shop Instablur Launch

Hi Lovelies! <3

I’m feeling happy because I am finally catching up with blogging about events that happened within the past month, HAHA. 😀 *major grins*

So, not too long ago, my insta-buddy Clarabel invited me to attend The Body Shop Instablur launch with her at Haji Lane. 🙂
2014-05-05 23.44.12

Taking full advantage of the evening light when stepping out of the office for the event!2014-05-05 19.08.40

The event started with celebrity make up artist Elain Lim sharing tips of the trade and how important it is to have a good primer that acts as a base for the make up that won’t budge for photoshoots and require little to no digital touch ups.2014-05-05 19.12.46 2014-05-05 19.12.48
She’s demonstrating on Rachel, of @RachelXoo2014-05-05 19.29.11
Next up we have photographer guru Wesley Loh, who shares how every single person can look good on photos. Do you believe that! Photography guru says so! He shares his top tips, which I’m sharing with you all too, so we can all look together. 😉

1. Everyone has their good face
2. Shoot from above the nose line
3. Shoot from higher for bigger eyes
4. Find the better side, and shoot from slightly higher angle.
5. Proper sleep = no micro sagging/no droppy eyes!

2014-05-05 19.36.50 2014-05-05 19.37.01

We have our lovely Leanne who’s the model of the evening showing how lighting plays a big part to capture a good portrait too!

So I had to give the tips a try right? 😛2014-05-05 19.40.03 2014-05-05 19.40.10 2014-05-05 19.40.22
The lightning wasn’t really good cause it’s back lit…haha!2014-05-05 20.05.55
So I tried another one with a better lightning. 😉

I personally like to shoot with my right profile cause I feel it looks younger. But it all depends on my mood. I’ve been told I look best when I face straight on tho. I’m not gonna complain cause I like taking selfies but I don’t overly spam cause yunno’ it’s not nice to be overly narcissistic. Not for me anyways! You’re free to be whatever you want to be! #idontjudge #itrynottojudgeanyways haha.

There was an excellent spread of food, thanks to The Body Shop Singapore! <32014-05-05 19.52.17 2014-05-05 19.52.25 2014-05-05 19.52.45 2014-05-05 20.00.34 2014-05-05 20.00.56
This was the best. Salmon with wheat noodles. Yummy~Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Not forgetting a pic with my lovely Clarabel. Unfortunately we both look so super tan and sunkissed here. Lol!!! We’re actually pretty fair! 😛2014-05-05 19.57.06

And this is The Body Shop’s #noretouchtbssg promise and campaign! YES, let’s be proud to show the world our insecurities, our bare faces, our uneven eyelids – that’s me, and maybe I will or maybe I won’t do something about it in the future, but I don’t let it affect my security as a being -, our big pores, our freckles, our whatnots! It’s these imperfections that make us who we are! 2014-05-06 15.04.15

Yeahhh this is more like our skin tone yeah. Except after Clarabel’s magic camera it looks like we’ve perfect skin. >.< But we don’t walk around with camera lenses so we need Instablur for that perfect primer yeah? 😉2014-05-05 20.18.29I didn’t manage to snap a shot of the queue of bloggers and ladies asking Wesley which is the best side. We all consulted him and he said I look good with my left profile (which is the one that’s more defined and mature) or a front profile is nice too. LOL. Totally different from what I like. HAHA. Anyway it’s good like if I need to take an official photo to look older I turn to my left, and if I wanna look younger, I turn to my right. Not bad right?

2014-05-05 23.39.31

Thanks to The Body Shop Singapore, I got to try out these products! Here’s my brief review also posted on my Instagram a while back already! Follow me @ena_teo. 😉

Checking out the beauty goodies in The Body Shop All in One collection:
1⃣ New 5 Action Perfector Instablur primer. After a full day of use, I would say I really enjoy this product as it is a good primer and helped to hold up my eye make up the whole day.
2⃣ BB cream; Colour adapting tinted cream 01. Haven’t tried this as I currently have too many BB creams (not to be boast but it’s about 4 and I have another 4 new ones, lol. #boonandbaneofabeautyblogger) to try.
3⃣ Concealer 02. I’m usually a fuss free make up girl (who’d believed?) and I don’t use concealers as they are usually too creamy for my combination skin or not the right colour match for my dark circles. I also have this weird thinking that if I don’t conceal my dark circles, Id be more motivated to sleep early and naturally eradicated them. Ermmm last check, I haven’t slept before 12am in the past 3 months. #delusionalgirlissues But I am glad to report that this baby works like a charm for me. It’s like a sleek lipstick applicator that comes off like a smooth cream and totally blendable. Also matched my dark circles pretty well!
4⃣ Face base 03. I find that I really like it for its smooth and fine finish and it’s my current go to powder!
5⃣ Cheek colour shade ginger it’s a dark coral colour. I like it, goes well on my warm skin tone.
6⃣ Lip & cheek shade rose pink, a light lip gloss with a tinge of colour that is more red than pink. Definitely a finishing gloss with a lip colour below. Won’t do much on it’s own.

The All-in-One Instablur is available at The Body Shop at $32.90.

Oh and I also want to share that my baby girl Clarabel also got featured on the newspaper for her review. 😉

Check out her blog here. Can’t wait for our date when she’s back from Paris! 🙂

Thanks to Clarabel for inviting me, The Body Shop Singapore for the event!

Thanks for reading! <3



Your Perfect Shade Workshop with Elizabeth Arden featuring Summer Escape Colour Collection 2014

Hi lovelies! <3 <3 <3

A while back, I attended “Your Perfect Shade” Workshop with Elizabeth Arden featuring Australian Make Up artists, Stephan Gaskett.
It’s always a pleasure attending Elizabeth Arden’s workshops and product launches, it isn’t just the wonderful skincare and beauty products that boasts of the latest R&D technology, delicious food or generous goodie bags, it’s the gracious company of fellow beauty bloggers and the humorous Elizabeth Arden team that I enjoy the most. 🙂

The event was held at Mandarin Gallery Grange Ballroom and there was a spread of Elizabeth Arden’s new make up products for us to test and swatch! 😀

More close ups of these eyeshadow beauties.2014-04-10 20.22.59

And here we have a peak at the bloggers busy at work! 😀2014-04-10 20.31.40

Here’s my made up look! The blue eyeshadow is lighter in colour, creamier and of course my skin looks fresher with a coat of the
Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Makeup  SPF 15PA++ (S$70) ! It’s touted to be a lightweight, luminous foundation and proven to minimize pores. I think it provides really great coverage and a smooth finishing! My shade’s in Natural 05. Flawless Finish Correcting and Highlighting Perfector ($40) I used it to conceal my dark circles and highlight the area below my brows. Works like a charm.  And yes do I love the Beautiful Color Gloss Stick in Sunrise (Pink)! I personally think that the look is sophisticated, allowing one to step out from the office and right onto some summer beach or pool party. Yeah~

2014-04-10 20.31.42

I am very happy with my look. 😀
I always believe that to look good, one needs to have good skincare, makeup products & confidence. 🙂
I personally think we should invest in the best skincare and foundation that we can afford, and of course the confidence comes free, and often it comes easily when you’ve got good skin. You can trust me on that, as I use to have teenage acne troubles!

What’s an event, if not for the memories that we take back with us?

Majolica Majorca & Ma Chérie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event

Have I told you how much I like Majolica Majorca products?

Oh yes I have, I shall quite egoistically quote myself here. 😛

"I love this brand for its fantasy concept… It’s so beautiful lah! *^^* "
 - Ena Teo, Blogger of Enabalista.com

the quote is taken from my previous post, about the Matsuri Day Beauty workshop I attended previously. 🙂

It’s always a pleasure to attend Shishedo events because the team always put in so much creativity & personalization, creating a magical and exciting atmosphere. ^^

This time, it’s the Majolica Majorca x Ma Chérie Floral Enchantress Bloggers’ Event~

Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 18 Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 19Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 3 Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 2

Aren’t these fun facts and presentation just amazing?

At the last ZA event, bloggers were introduced to a reading of “My Lip Personality” based on their lip shape. This time, we got a reading of our Hair, Lips & Eyes character, based on what our favourite styles were! Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 9 Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 8

This game required us to pitch the “crystal” balls through the holes in order to win beauty goodies. On a side note, another of their fun fact says “The World’s first ever cosmetics were created from copper and lead ore by ancient Egyptians” Lead cause poisoning! Aren’t we glad that technology has improved thus far so that we can actually have safe beauty products? >.<

Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 20

My eye, hair & lip character reading:

The Sweet Surrender
You’re a combination of sugar & spice, but the twist is your sweetness is the mystery.

The Delectable Mist
You are a motivated & career oriented girl but when the time comes, you can still be playful & cheeky.

The Tantalize Caress
You wear your heart on your sleeve, but your sweetness & soft nature wins the hearts of many.

I think the reading is really quite generic except for the hair reading. HAHA. I am really a motivated and career oriented girl and can be playful when I want to be!
Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 14 Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 16

Here’s the Majolica Majorca Line Hunter Eyeliner and Perfect Automatic Liner (I have one in golden brown) and Honey Plump Gloss Neo in pink and peach. I’ll be using this for a #LOTD soon and will post on my instagram. Follow me on IG, look for @ena_teo~ 🙂

Majolica Majorca Line Hunter Eyeliner retails at S$19.90, Perfect Automatic Liner at S$22.90 and Honey Plump Gloss Neo at S$12.90 at Watson stores island-wide.
Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 15

We also got to bring home Ma Chérie Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner. I can’t wait to use these cause their fragrance is sweet and lovely and I love my hair to be silky smooth~ *^^*
Majolica Majorca x Ma Cherie Floral Enchantress Blogger Event Enabalista 17

Most recently, Ma Chérie has introduced their refill packs to the market, which is great because it’s environmentally friendly and returning customers get the same amount of goodness at a lower cost! Yay!

The Secret of Ma Chérie’s products is their Champagne Honey Gelee which is a formulation that protects hair from oxidative stress (I wiki-ed to read what it’s about, simply put it means damage to cells from the outside environment…), retains moisture, softens and adds shine to hair. For the specific ingredients and function breakdown you can read from the image above. 😉

Ma Chérie has two range:

1. Air Feel
for volume and shine to fine hair

2. Moisture
for silky lingering smoothness that treats dry ends

Be sure to follow Majolica Majorca and Ma Chérie on their Facebook here and here for their latest product updates, beauty and skin care tips & product giveaways! I won a Majolica Majorca 10th Anniversary Press Kit by taking part in their Facebook giveaway recently, which I’ll blog about soon~ I was really happy to win it cause a blogger won it at the last event and I really really like the Press Kit that came in a classic book box! >.< Us girls and our love for pretty packaging!

Get Pretty with Mary Kay Make-up Workshop

Just before Chinese New Year, at the invitation of Wendy,
my girlfriends and I visited Mary Kay’s office in Tanjong Pagar for a make up workshop!

Here’s some photos, my favourite products and review from the session! 😉

Enabalista with YL Mary Kay

With YL pre workshop session!
My skin was honestly in bad condition that day, after a breakout.

Before the makeup demonstration and workshop, we indulged in a little skin care pampering session.

Enabalista Mary Kay Workshop Review

Here, YL, Belle and I had half our face slathered with Mary Kay’s Botanical Mask.
So we could tell the effect comparing to our non-masked half!
Don’t we look like we have dramatic masks on? 😀

Drama Masks

Enabalista Mary Kay Review Favourite Products

Mary Kay TimeWise Replenishing Serum and Botanical Mask
These are my favourite Mary Kay products from the workshop. 🙂
The serum preps the skin before the mask and after the mask application, the skin is fresher and clearer.

After prepping the skin and cleaning off the mask, it’s time for makeup demonstration!

Close up and unfiltered photos, post make up!

With Mary Kay concealer, primer, foundation, loose powder, eyebrow pencil, blusher and
eyeshadow in pink, orange and gold to suit the auspicious chinese new year occasion!
Mary Kay lipstick colours are also very lovely and pigmented.
On my lips are a mix of  TrueDimension lipstick in Color Me Coral and Wild About Pink.
I really really like this look on my girlfriends and I!

Enabalista Mary Kay Mission Statement

My girlfriends and I enjoyed the session and we agreed that the session was made more enjoyable because we
had each other’s company while we pampered ourselves with skincare and picked up make up techniques.
I actually think this is an excellent idea for a girls’ gathering! Plus, Juliana is a great make up coach and
she made us feel very relaxed and at ease with her bright smile and cheerful personality. 🙂

Mary Kay is a unique skincare and beauty brand in the sense that it doesn’t have a brick and mortar shop,
instead their products are sold by women, started  by Mary Kay Ash in America and is now in Asia.
Mary Kay Beauty Consultants start by going through the workshop and training themselves
they are certified trainers and enlist other women into their own teams
that sell and train other women in skincare and make up.
Pretty much like real estate or insurance agents but in the world and field of beauty!
I love the concept of women empowering other women and making their passion a living.

My girlfriends and I are planning to head back for workshop two where we pick up how to create “Smokey eye effect”.
If you would like to arrange for a Mary Kay workshop session for you and your girlfriends,
email Wendy, wenyip516 @ gmail.com (without the gaps)!
I’m also thinking of arranging for a session for my blog readers to attend Mary Kay’s workshop,
so keep a look out for that! 😉



Ultraflesh Shinebox Review

Hi lovelies!

Thanks to StrawberryNET.com, today I’m reviewing a beauty/makeup product,
Ultraflesh Shinebox, Highlight & Shimmer Collection!


As you can see from above, the UltraFlesh Shinebox has three tiers, the top being an enhancer aka shimmer powder that can be used to highlight your forehead, cheeks and nose bridge, which is exactly what I did for today’s make up.

The second tier is the shimmer cream which can be used to apply below your eyebrows to highlight and create eyes with depth.

The third tier is my favourite and new find, shimmer eye liners in white and nude colours. I have used eyeliner in white on my lower eyes waterline to create a bigger and doll-like eyes effect. However it is my first time using the nude shimmer eyeliner and I love it! It blends perfectly with my skin colour, creating a healthy bright eye look. 😀


My full make up look, enhanced with UltraFlesh’s Shinebox!
I love how my nosebridge is higher and my eyes are brighter. 🙂

I’m glad StrawberryNET.com introduced me to UltraFlesh makeup.
The brand’s packaging reminds me of cult brand UrbanDecay,
perhaps it’s only a matter of time before this cool brand achieves recognition in Singapore and the rest of Asia.
You can also get your UltraFlesh Shinebox here at S$41.50.

StrawberryNET.com is an online retailer of discounted makeup, perfume, skincare and hair care,
stocking over 30,000 products from 600+ leading brands – up to 65% OFF.
They also offer FREE shipping on all orders, I’m sure you will find appealing, as I do!

Here’s my modern interpretation of a Pop Diva look! 😉
It’s also on Collection Cosmetics SG page. 😀

In this look, I’m featuring purple, silver and dark grey eyeshadows using their Smokey Eyes palette & Trio Purple eyeshadow palette, Lasting Colour Lipstick in Sugar Plum, Cover & Go Foundation Duo, Lasting Perfection Concealer & a generous double layer of eyelashes, heh! 😛

Overall, I am impressed with the quality of the make up for its price tag! The Cover & Go Foundation Duo, Lasting Perfection Concealer had great coverage that was creamy without being sticky/oily. The eye palettes and lip colours were rich in their pigments. Overall, two thumbs up and I’m sure to purchase some of their products when the new lines are out, since they have kindly gifted a set for this collection! 🙂

Ena’s Outfit | Oasap Classic Embroidered Dress

{ Sponsored Post }

Hi guys!  。(⌒∇⌒。)

This week I got my dress which I ordered from Oasap, a very lovely contrast collar and embroidered dress!

So I wore it to work…

Here’s my makeup look of the day aka #lotd:

Ena Teo Makeup LOTDI matched my eyeshadow colour with the dress, with blue and black at the winged tip portion with black eye liner. It’s my current eye makeup style, a mix of eyeshadow and eyeliner that wings outwards. 🙂 Applied a generous amount of blusher that I promise does not look that much in real life. And pink lipsticks. Just happened that today all make up mentioned are Estee Lauder except eyeliner is Maybelline’s Impact Express Eyeliner, which is my favourite of all, my holy grail make up item. Still have not finished all the Estee Lauder products I got from last year! No idea how some girls keep buying when I can never finish mine, lol. Not that I am complaining. the only beauty products I can finish are eyeliner, make up remover and skin care products like sunblock. 🙂 I also have on Estee Lauder brow pencil in dark brown, though you can’t really tell since my fringe is covering my brows.

More pics!:

Ena Teo Oasap Contrast Collar Embriodered Dress 1

Taken during lunch time! Just right outside my office building, which explains why it looks SO bright here cause it was! 😛 Matched it with my Charles & Keith heels which are my new favourite shoes! 😀 They go with almost everything and are the most comfy heels I have. <3 <3 <3 Also seen, carrying my Kenzo green pouch from the SS13 Tiger Collection. I don’t think I’ve posted a pic on that before.. But the season’s already over. Lol.

Pinterest Ena Teo Oasap Contrast Collar Embriodered Dress 1

Ena Teo Oasap Contrast Collar Embriodered Dress 3A close up of the embroidered detailing on the dress. It has a great finish, no frill ends! Accessorized with my star & wing ring and black strap watch from Fossil Relic.

My review: 

Design & Quality: 4.5/5 I picked this dress because it’s simple, classic and I just love the touch of gold and baroque leaves design! It’s a dress that’s great for work, formal lunch and dinners and even dates! 🙂 I am super glad to report that the quality is great! It has an inner soft lining so the dress is comfortable on the skin. Finishing is flawless. Fit is great. In fact when I wore it to office, two of my colleagues commented on it, saying it was nice. 🙂 Only downside is that the material though perfect for air-con office, it isn’t suitable for Singapore on super hot sunny days, so don’t wear this for a day out, lol. But will be great for rainy weather!

Price: 4/5 At original price US$39.90, I think it could be cheaper(no need for them to pay rental and it was a light package to deliver), since it’s an online purchase, and the folks at Oasap must have read my mind because they are now offering this beautiful dress at… US$33.92! 🙂

Shipping: 2.5/5 I thought the shipping took rather long. I ordered on 2 September but only received it this Monday, 16 September after two whole weeks. However the upside is that it came in mint condition, in fact wrapped in 3 plastic layers which made me wonder if it was necessary, I feel bad for all this packaging waste. But I’m not complaining.

If you like the dress, you can buy it >> here.

Win With Estée Lauder Every Woman Can Be Beautiful Photo Contest


Hi all!

Remember the Estée Lauder Makeover I attended 2 weeks ago? I’m glad to announce that there’s a photo contest from that event that’s beginning today and there are fantastic prizes to be won by the voters!

From Estée Lauder Singapore FB page:

From today till 16th August, vote for the Best Makeover Transformation from our Every Woman Can Be Beautiful photo contest, and you could be one of the 10 lucky voters to walk away with a SGD200 Estée Lauder Hamper!

If you happen to be on of the ladies in the photo contest, be amongst the Top 10 with the most votes and stand a chance to win a SGD1,000 Estée Lauder Hamper!

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.

If you can’t wait to vote already (but come back to complete reading my post after you vote ah), check out the voting app page on Estée Lauder Singapore Facebook page for more details, click here: https://www.facebook.com/EsteeLauderSG/app_172787272742313

If you still can wait, read on!

This is how the first page of beautiful makeover photo contest voting looks like, all you need to do is to click vote! Each page has 20 contestants and there are 4 pages so I infer that there are a total of 80 contestants. It says on the page that “You can submit unlimited votes, max 1 vote per entry” Aside: (so if you really want to maximize your winning potential, I guess you can like all 80 contestants! :P)


“Chance favors the prepared mind” – Louis Pasteur

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!

We all love to win in life don’t we? With the Olympics fever currently going on, you can also stand a chance to experience being a winner by taking part in the contest voting! 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!”

Speaking of winning, I am very blessed to have won a Glamasia contest and I collected my  Stella McCartney necklace yesterday. I’ll blog about it another post! (:

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.

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.


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.
