I was glad to attend an exclusive event to preview the latest collection a few weeks ago.

This new contemporary make-up holiday collection offers “dual beauty” that focuses on the “paradox” of pink and black princess characters as feminine icons – because every woman has a duality within (the dark and light sides), nice and naughty, innocent and sexy.

An internationally renowned master of contemporary art, Takashi Murakami not only designed the packaging for this exclusive 6 Heart PRINCESS collection that is based on characters of his “6HP (Six Hearts Princess)” animation, he also drafted and directed a full-3DCG special animation for the project, entitled “6HP Six Hearts Princess Pink or Black.”

The limited edition 6 Heart PRINCESS collection comprises of :

Upon the event, I was pleased to present with a goodie bag that contains the new Volume Maker Invisible Texturizing Powder, TSUYA Skin UV Under Base Youthful Radiance Mousse SPF30 PA+++, Lip & Cheek Fun-tasy Tint (in fuchsia fan-tasy) and Heart-full Pink Parallel Eyeshadow Palette.

I’m glad to receive this Volume Maker Invisible Texturizing Powder in Kabuki Limited Powder Brush. This new limited edition hair powder brush embodies an invisible powder formulated with active ingredients to gently absorb oil from the scalp, whilst generously infusing the roots with body and volume.

Product Benefits : • Instant root lift, texture and body • Refreshes blowdrys • Helps absorb oil without excessive • Precision brush applicator • Ideal for all hair types, scalp condition and occasions

My hair tends to lose its volume in the midday and this product really comes in handy as I can now add volume to my super flat hair without using any spray. It’s so light (2g) I can carry it with me in my bag and use it anytime, anywhere.

It comes with a red automatic-click kabuki brush that allows for an easy and precise application. Apply the powder by neatly separate horizontal sections at the crown, place the brush at the root area and click-and-stroke in a side movement. Follow by using fingers, massage to distribute the powder and back-comb the hair to texturize and create stand out volume.

The Volume Maker Kabuki Limited Powder Brush, retailing at S$58, is available at all Shu Uemura Art of Hair partner salons from October 2013. For stocklists, you may call 1800-838-3388.

My favorite colors in the palette are No.3 and No.4. No.8 will be used as a cheek color.

I’ve applied shade No.7 and No.4 (closer to the lashline) on the outer corner of my eyelid and shade No.5 on the inner corner of my eyelid, and shade No.1 on the centre area. I’ve also applied shade No.3 (like a eyeliner) on the middle and outer lashline. I’ve solely used the brushes in the palette to create this look.
