Happy Halloween, everybody! It’s one of my most favourite holidays. Costumes? Crazy makeup? Sign me up!
That’s why today’s quick post is going to be about a makeup set – something I know will be useful to a lot of people who are into changing their look for a night of fun! It doesn’t hurt either that the name of the product kinda fits today’s holiday too. 😉
Just popping in with a quick blog post to let you guys know that Mamonde is now in Malaysia! In June, I wrote about the products you should watch out for from this Korean brand. You can read that post here. Now, you can get all the products in that post and more!
Mamonde opened their first counter in Malaysia a few days ago inside AEON at 1Utama. They counter carries 140 kinds of products under 32 categories. That’s a pretty extensive collection!
It’s no secret how much I love my Laneige BB Cushion. I rave about it every chance I get. Simply because, it’s the best in the market. For me, at least, as it works so well with my skin! It stays the whole day, it has a light yet buildable coverage, and a natural-looking finish. It’s definitely my go-to base product since most days, I just can’t seem to handle heavy makeup.
When I was told that the 3rd generation of the BB Cushion was being launched in Malaysia, I couldn’t say no to the invitation for the event. I needed to see it right away!
Has it really been a year since Althea launched?! I can’t believe it. Feels like it was only a few months ago! Time really does fly when you’re having fun and in the past 12 months with Althea, I most certainly did! 😉
The droids here at home are gonna be doing some shopping to celebrate too.
I get my Korean beauty products from Althea in the lowest prices imaginable. Every time a package from them arrives, it feels like I actually went to Myeong-dong in Seoul for some serious beauty shopping!
For Althea‘s first birthday, we’re gonna be the ones who will receiving gifts and treats! Awesome, right?!
The celebration and the promotions will be running from today, the 20th of July until the 31st of this month! Here’s what you’ll be getting:
I love having summer all-year round and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. However, I have to admit that once summer reaches its peak here in the tropics, it can be a tad too much for me. I find myself wanting to crawl inside an igloo.
Today, I’ll be sharing with you guys my lazy makeup routine that’s so easy, you won’t even need brushes. Product list can be found after the jump. Enjoy!
I have to admit that I’ve become quite bored with a lot of blogging events and found myself not in the mood to attend. Mainly because I’m quite busy with so many things and when I find myself having free time, my lazy butt just refused to leave the comforts of our home. If it’s not something that would really pique my interest, I’ve been saying no.
Mamonde coming to Malaysia is something that fell into the category that piques my interest so off I went to Damansara on a weekend which is usually reserved for errands and dates with the husband. “It will only last for 2-3 hours, I promise!” was what I told Alvin that day.
I’m glad I went as I wasn’t disappointed. The event was well-thought off and the products got me really excited! But first, the basics!
Is it just another Korean Beauty Brand?
Mamonde (French word for ‘My World’) is yes, a Korean beauty brand. It’s also under Amore Pacific, Korea’s biggest cosmetics company that also owns Sulwhasoo, Laneige, and Innisfree among others. But what sets Mamonde apart is its use of flowers as the (only) key ingredients for its comprehensive skin care range. They also have makeup but we’ll get to that later.
Amore Pacific’s Research Institute experimented on flowers has been extracting nourishing ingredients that are good for our skin and bottling them up into products. Thus, the brand’s tagline – Inspired by flowers.
Shall we move on to the exciting bit? The products you should check out when they come to Malaysia? 😉
Makeup is all about fun and self-expression in my book so I’m totally on board with L’Oréal Paris’ new name and brand direction.
L’Oréal is a trusted brand that’s been around for ages (since 1909!). I remember growing up with it and getting my first ever foundation from their brand years ago. So the rebranding actually came as a surprise – a good one. 😉
They’re now known as L’Oréal Paris Makeup Designer. So what’s behind the longer name?
Don’t just wear makeup, design your look!
The brand is actually encouraging everyone who uses their products to exercise their freedom and self-expression using makeup. They want you to actually design your whole look. It’s 2016, after all.
