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 →

White Definition INSTANT BRIGHTENING Makeup Lesson by MAKE UP FOR EVER

 

Recently, I was invited by MAKE UP FOR EVER for a complimentary one-to-one INSTANT BRIGHTENING makeup lesson (30 mins) at Sephora Ngee Ann City!

This 30-minute Instant Brightening makeup lesson (falls under the “Simply Perfect Complexion”) costs only S$30. The purpose of this session is not to be introduced to the products but to learn the technique and steps of achieving a flawless, natural looking and instant brightening complexion! You will be surprised that you can still look utterly beautiful even without mascara and eyeliner. Most importantly is to get the base and foundation right! I strongly believe without a flawless natural looking skin, even with the most trendy and glamorous eye shadow, I will not be able to create the perfect look.

The products I’m using include UV Prime Daily Protective Make-up Primer SPF 50/PA+++, HD Primer in Neutral 01 and Green 02, HD Concealer, HD White Definition Instant Brightening Powder Foundation SPF 30/PA++ (recently launched with a new packaging), HD High Definition Powder, eyebrow pencil, Sculpting Kit, Sculpting Blush and lip gloss.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Technicolor Spring Collection 2013

 

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to receive a fun and exciting eyeshadow palette – Technicolor Spring Collection 2013 – from MAKE UP FOR EVER Singapore, that is inspired by the saturated colors used in technicolor movies in 1920s to 1960s Hollywood, like some classics like The Wizard of Oz or Singing in the Rain.

make up for ever technicolor 2013

“I want to create an electifying beauty, the kind that emanates from certain women who leave behind a craving for their radiant, magnetic appeal long after they walk out of the room. I imagined a woman who could draw every eye and stop short any conversation just by walking by. This spring, I am paying tribute to color; for me, the undeniable radiance of yellow expresses the overwhelming pull that can create such irresistible attraction and spectacular sensuality.” – DANZ SANZ, Creator & Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER
