Review of my ZOEVA Haul at Sephora


We were thrilled when Sephora Singapore approached Womenlovebeauty to blog about the awesome makeup products available on their online store.

We knew we had to say yes because we have been wanting to try out this highly raved German makeup brand called ZOEVA for the longest time. ZOEVA do not have any retail counter yet, so the only place to get is at Sephora!

Being a beauty junkie, I was like an excited little girl entering a candy store when I browsed through the wide variety of products (makeup/skincare/makeup accessories etc) from an extensive list of brands. LOL! The products are systemically sorted based on brands/categories/prices etc and the filter function proves to be a very useful tool for their consumers to search for a specific product from a specific brand. Make online shopping a breeze!

The package came when I was away holidaying in Seoul and I had to re-schedule my delivery by Ninja Van. It proved to be an easy task as well, and soon the package arrived the next morning after I got back home.

Yay! My Sephora haul has safely arrived at my doorstep! And in perfect condition!

Say hello to my eyeshadow palette, eyeshadow primer, blush palette, and 3 makeup brushes from ZOEVA. Oh yes, not forgetting to mention a pair of falsies but not from ZOEVA though.

Check out the TRIPLE bubble-wrapping! Love how meticulous they are when it comes to making sure breakage-prone makeup items are well wrapped and protected before sending the package out.

The mandatory flatlay shot of my Sephora haul :D Notice there is an additional item which I did not mention earlier? It’s the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream which I picked as my free gift during check out. Gonna try out that product too! Continue reading →

Recently, I’ve attended an exclusive Sephora Foundation Rehab Workshop, held at Bugis+ Atrium, to catch celebrity makeup artist Larry Yeo in action and get to witness Sephora’s largest Foundation Dramming Bar in Singapore! Larry took us through the hands-on workshop by addressing key complexion problems, demonstrating application techniques, including achieving the perfect V-shape face, and sharing foundation tips.

During the event, Larry demonstrated the techniques to achieve a perfect flawless skin, hide the skin imperfection and achieve a V-shape face with 6 basic products including primer, foundation, highlighter, concealer, powder and contouring product.

Product 1. Smoothing out skin texture with a PRIMER, such as the above Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer Potion (centre). Applying primer before foundation may ease the application of foundation, even out skin redness, allow the foundation to stay longer under humid weather, prevent skin from absorbing talc and pigment from the foundation and prevent talc from drawing oil from the skin.

About three weeks ago, I was glad to attend the Urban Decay event to preview their latest long-awaited eyeshadow palette at Sephora Bugis+.

Due to the great demand from Facebook fans requesting to bring back the best-selling Vice Eyeshadow Palette, which was launched last year, Urban Decay has decided to launch a follow up and introducing you the Vice 2 Limited Edition Palette! Definitely a great news for die-hard Urban Decay fans!

The latest sophisticated Limited Edition Vice 2 Palette, priced at S$88, is loaded with a great combination of 20 ALL-NEW eyeshadow shades that include a couple of metallic colors (most with indescent micro-sparkle or -glitter finish) such as blue, emerald, brown, copper pink, olive green and silver. It also includes a few sexy bold smokey and neutral shades.

Each Eyeshadow features Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability.

When I first saw the Vice 2 Palette at the Urban Decay preview event, I was like OMG! all the colors are gorgeous!!! It was absolutely love at first sight!

The limited edition Vice 2 Palette is packed in a edgy, abstract orchid design that is applied with a special process, which means no 2 palettes are exactly alike. And they topped the whole palette with a gunmetal jeweled UD icon. With the touch of a button, the case opens slowly, seductively, to unveil all that gorgeous eye candy, along with an oversized mirror and a full-size brush.
