Preview Fun & Chic Beauty Products Under Watsons ‘My Vanity Box’


In October 2011, Watsons is proud to bring you a whole new shopping experience with their new addition ‘My Vanity Box’, a chic beauty shelf which offers a dramatic array of Watsons’ latest beauty products.

Two weeks ago, I’ve gotten to attend a private intimate party to preview an unique selection of the new and interesting beauty products exclusively available only at Watsons‘ ‘My Vanity Box’.

It was held in one of the cozy rooms at The Sultan Hotel. The bed is actually placed on the roof attic area. Nice!

‘My Vanity Box’ is something that you wouldn’t want to miss if you happen to step inside any of these 5 exclusive Watsons storesNgee Ann City, Bugis Junction, Jurong Point, IMM Building and Holland Village. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by these exciting and fun beauty products from bizarre lip tattoos, dainty paper lashes, dramatic flirty falsies to fun colored nail polishes, all from around the world!

I actually have a fun time trying these cool products! These beauty products are definitely a great gift for our loved ones this coming Christmas!


Star Lash Eyelashes – S$8.90 to S$26.90

You can now create a dramatic look with these flirty, sexy lashes from Star Lash. These premium hand-made eyelashes are made from the best synthetic for maximum comfort and ultimate durability!

Each Star Lash set is actually re-usable for more than 10 times! Prices range from S$4.90 to S$9.90 for accessories and from S$8.90 to S$26.90 for Star Lash Eye Lashes.

These falsies are soft and light to feel like your natural lashes! Even the bands are soft and comfortable to wear.

Here’s the first product I’ve tried, white feathers falsies on my right eye. It doesn’t look good on me and my upper eyelid looks heavier. I guess I need to wear a heavier makeup with this falsies.

Decided to try the classic black feather falsies instead…

… surprisingly, I love the dramatic look! Definitely a great alternative to the usual falsies!


Paperself Eyelashes – S$29.90

If you are a falsies lover, here’s an interesting product for you! Yes paper eyelashes by Paperself!

Your eyes are not playing tricks on you! Yes these unique falsies are actually made of paper! WOW!

These paper falsies – designed, developed and produced by London-based Paperself team – are inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting. Each design has their designer’s name printed on the box.

Awarded the Norman Copenhagen Best Product Award in 2010, these reusable and versatile lashes are made from responsibly harvested FSC certified paper – the only alternative to using recycled paper.

These work-of-arts are stronger, extra light and even slightly waterproof. Each pair retails at S$29.90.

Paperself unique falsies actually come in two sizes. Introducing the Broken Hearts – a smaller lashes to accentuate the corners for your eyes!

I have managed to pick this design, a pair of seahorses and fishes, to accentuate on each corner of my lower eyelids. Each box retails at S$29.90.

WOW! I extremely love the dramatic and flirty look! Do you like it too? Do you know you can actually create a subtle daytime look by just having this smaller lashes only on the corner of the upper eyelids. You can actually recycled these false lashes for up to 10 times!


Violent Lips – S$19.90 to S$20.90

You can now express yourself and steal the limelight at any party with the Violent Lips – a statement-making Temporary Lip Tattoo Appliqu©s!

Violent Lips, an innovative line of natural and vitamin-enhanced temporary lip tattoos, is created by American entertainment industry veteran Jeff Haddad and his two daughters Isabella and Sophia.

You can find bold and fun designs ranging from fierce animal prints, cute polka dots, sexy fishnets and intense Gliterratti line. These tested on supermodels and FDA-approved Temporary Lip Appliqu©s can color your lips for 4 to 8 hours.

Each pack contains 3 Temporary Lip Applications and retails from S$19.90 to S$20.90. Each pack only comes in 1 color. Not too sure if the organizers have deliberately packed 1 extra piece of application for all bloggers, I actually received 4 applications in the pack instead of 3. ;-) During the event, we were given the permission to exchange the colors and here are the colors I have picked.

At the back of each application, you can find lip lines that act as a guide for you to cut out the shape and size according to your lip shape. Remember to open your mouth wide open when doing the measuring. How to use it? Well, it’s just like a temporary sticker tattoo for body. All you need is to place the cut-out lip shape on your wide-opened mouth and rub the back of the application with water to help transfer the tattoo onto your lip which takes about 1-3 minutes.

Here’s my cute polka dots lip tattoo! Do you like it? It claims to last from 4 to 8 hours. You can remove it with baby oil or makeup wipes, or simply drink, eat and kiss away with it! I actually removed it by peeling off small pieces by pieces using my itchy fingers while on the cab home after the event…. hee hee……


China Glaze Nail Polishes – S$18 to S$19

China Glaze Nail Polishes, a renowned brand from United States, has exceeded the bar set by the professional nail care industry for over 13 years. It is claimed to provide the highest quality of globally-rich, on-trend, innovative color lacquers and treatments. The brand’s rich formula helps strengthen nails and are free of DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde.

These nail polishes displayed on the table are just some of the colors I have previewed, there are more colors at the other table actually. I was just amazed on the huge collections of nail colors they carried.

The bright and sweet pastels are some bold nail colors loved by gals who just want to have fun.

If you like something fun, do check out the latest Crackle Glaze and Crackle Metals series! This specialty innovative nail polish will create a crackled texture when it dries up! Do remember to apply a contrasting color base before applying this Crackle nail polish.

I have tested multiple colors on my nails and I especially loved the crackled creations done on the last 2 fingers (greenish and bluish) on the extreme left.
