Zalora Shopping Experience

Hello!

Today I want to talk about a online shopping site that houses lots of products ranging from clothing, accessories, shoes, bags, beauty products. I am sure many of you have heard about Zalora. Zalora is a one stop shopping site which carries lots of brands. The brands available are in a very wide range. There are many affordable brands for us to look for, but if you have the budget to splurge, Zalora also carries lots of premium brands.

I am glad that Zalora also carries lots of Beauty products. I explored the beauty section and found many famous brands. Some skincare brands that I spotted; MURAD, MOR, Sara Shantelle, Estelle & Thild. The part that I am most excited about is the Makeup section! I spotted brands such as EyeMazing, Dr Jart and Gorgeous Cosmetics. I also spotted few famous nail care brands such as OPI, China Glaze and Seche.

Here are few beauty items that I purchased:

MOR Lip Macaron Blood Orange

MOR Essential Body Butter Neroli Clementine

I have heard some reviews about this brand called MOR. It’s an Australian Skincare brand which has quite a wide range of products. The thing that makes me want to try this brand is mainly the pretty packaging. It looks so classy and luxurious.  I will let you know what I think about these products in another post :)

Eyemazing Eyelash Decolog Dolly

I would love to try Eyemazing False Eyelashes too! Although I am not adventurous enough to try dramatic eyelash, I would love to try Eyemazing falsies product. I have never owned such a long and thick falsies but this time I want to explore myself a bit into there :)

Zalora also has a fashion and beauty blog which gives insight on the latest fashion and make up trends. You can read the blog here.

Guerlain Summer 2012 by Emillio Pucci – Terra Azzura and Le Vernis in 01 Paradisio Swatch & Review

Hello,

I know summer has been over and we are already seeing lots of Christmas collection product. However I bought these products during Luxasia Beauty Bazaar last week. I am so glad that I found these during the sale. These products were on my lemming list but because of the hefty price tag I did not get it.  I am glad I paid SGD 50 for the Terra Azzura and SGD 12 for Paradisio.

Such a pretty sight to see! The packaging is so luxe. I love the wooden case with “Guerlain by Emillio Pucci” engraved in it. It’s a hefty casing which showcase the elegance of this product. There’s an Emillio Pucci pouch provided too. I love Emillio Pucci’s printed design. They are gorgeous! :)

However there’s one thing which I dislike from the packaging. The packaging is only aligned with three mini magnetic button. I think this is a little bit unsecured and prone to scratches. I would much prefer the casing are connected with the usual button.

The bronzer is quite sheer. In my opinion, this would look great for fair skin tone. On deeper skintone, this might not show up very well. The texture is nicely done. It blends easily and it creates a natural looking sculpted face.

I did a simple contouring with this bronzer. I am a beginner in contouring, so pardon me if it doesn’t look right LOL. I am also using the blush on top of the bronzer.

Paradisio is a coral red creme nail polish. The color is not unique at all, it’s certainly easy to find the dupe for the color. The formula of this polish is okay. It’s not extraordinary as it leans towards thick formula. It looks uneven on the first coat but it looks opaque on the 2nd coat. I apologize that the swatch does not look good, I took the picture after 3 days of wearing this polish. Hence it has shrunk a bit.

I also has swatched Guerlain Summer 2012 Nail polish in 02 Riviera. You can see the swatch here . 

Final Thought:

Terra Azzura has a very nice texture. It blends wonderfully and I foresee that I will be using this as a bronzer a lot. Paradisio is not disappointing but not excites me as well. It’s a nice nail polish but it doesn’t have any “oomph” factor.

Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012 Haul

Hi Hi!

I will be posting a quick post about my haul at Luxasia Warehouse Sale 2012.

I found out about this warehouse sale from Michelle from Ice Frost Diary‘s blog. I missed this event last year so I definitely would not want to miss this event again.

The sale was mainly about perfume. There are too many brands of perfume to mention; Chloe, Marc Jacob, Balenciaga, Hermès, Prada, Annick Goutal, acqua di parma, etc. The make up brands are Burberry, Guerlain, RMK, Anna Sui. There are many french skincare brands too!

Here’s a quick snap of my haul:

My hauls are mainly Burberry makeup product. The eyeshadows are at $15, The lipstick was at $20, Concealer was at $25, Lip liner was at $12. The non make up item I bought from Burberry is Burberry The Beat Perfume. This was sold at $49 (50ml)

I also picked Guerlain Emillio Pucci Terra Azzura at $50. I am so happy that finally I am getting this at a more reasonable price. I believe this was retailed at more than $100. I also picked up the nail polish at $12.

I hope to review these makeup items soon. I really want to use my Burberry products as soon as possible and see how much I like them :)

PURE Papaya Ointment Review



Every seasons’ skin care essential.. The little black tube from Down Under!

PURE Papaya Ointment – the 100% natural, petrochemical-free multi-tasking skin care essential from Australia. In addition to papaya, or pawpaw, active ingredients include soothing calendula, shea butter, jojoba oil, macadamia oil, styrax benzoin resin, silica,
beeswax and vitamin E.

PURE Papaya Ointment provides the perfect combination to soothe, moisturise and protect  your skin, and is great as a moisturising lip balm, for soothing insect bites, minor burns, sunburn, dry irritated skin conditions including dermatitis, nappy rash, cracked nipples,
dermatitis, the aftercare of tattoos and tattoo removal, and much more besides.

PURE Papaya Ointment is the ultimate multipurpose skin care product, and is a cult beauty product in its native Australia where its as at  home in a make up bag as it is the medicine cabinet.

WHAT ARE PETROCHEMICALS?
Petrochemicals are manufactured from crude petroleum, one of the most common petrochemcials found in skin care
products is petrolatum, also known as petroleum jelly.

WHY SHOULD PETROLEUM JELLY SHOULD BE AVOIDED?
• It is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the European Union (EU)
• It is banned in EU cosmetics (unless very specific purification standards are met)
• It is commonly contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are strongly linked to a wide
variety of detrimental diseases
• It tends to interfere with the body’s own natural moisturising mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping

25g – S$14.90 / 100g – S$29.90
PURE Papaya Ointment is available at Guardian, Watsons, BHG and all good health food stores.

My personal thought and experience:

When I received this product, I immediately feel that the packaging is a bit manly. It’s in a rubberized black tube. The packaging is handy, it’s lightweight and it’s easy to put this on my bag. The texture of this product is something that I like; it’s oily and it’s very moisturizing for the lips. My lips are tend to be dry most of the time and after wearing this for a week, I really see the result. My lips are much more moisturized and I love how this lip product moisturize my lip; it doesn’t peel my lip and it has a decent amount of shine. Other than my lip, I also use this to moisturize my dry cuticle. I haven’t see much improvement this product does to my cuticle but I hope I will see more in the next few days. The smell of this product is just fine. It’s not strong yet still has a slight papaya scent. I don’t ming paying $14.90 for this 25gr of product. The quality and the quantity of this product worth the price :)
