Last weekend I was in attendance at L'OREAL's first-ever bloggers' gathering, at Fika which is a Swedish bistro. As you can tell, the food was delicious, although I hated that the potatoes were too hard for my liking. I was too infatuated with the desserts that I completely forgot to snap shots (lol) The Apple Crumble was delicious, but my favourite was the brownies!!!
It was fun to see familiar faces at the lunch party, and also meet new ones. If you ever want to go back there, ring me up! o(^-^)o
The event was held to introduce the Open Eyes Chrome Intensity eyeshadow palettes, inspired by the shimmering hues of the butterfly. These four-colour eyeshadow palettes will start you off on a journey of metamorphosis. Each comes in breathtaking shades of either Blue (Aquadisiac), Green (Timeless Green), Pink (Pink Mania) or Yellow (Magic Amber).
Yesterday I had briefly introduced the Green palette, which is absolutely lovely, and the colors are very pigmented.
Inside the goodie bag:
- Open Eyes Chrome Intensity eyeshadow palettes in Timeless Green and Magic Amber
- Super Liner 24H Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black
- Color Riche Made for Me Lipstick in Intense Fushia and Burning Rose
- Ultra - Volume Collagene mascara
Ultra - Volume Collagene
This mascara is designed to boost volume in Asian lashes with a Hydra-Collagen complex with collagen and hyalyronic acid to boost volume and retain water for plumper lashes. Collagen in your lashes, are you intrigued already?
The mascara comes in a huge brush that fattens up your lashes, keeping them looking plump and visible. Also, the long bristles enhances my lower lashes without too much effort. The formula is smudge-free, which is a must-buy considering I had it on for 6 hours earlier this week, and I didn't even look like a panda! Plus, it didn't take much effort to remove it too.
Color Riche Made for Me Lipstick
These range of lipstick is enriched with a combination of Omega-3 oils, and Vitamin E that helps to protect your lips from drying. It has a soft and creamy texture which leaves lips feeling moisturized, smooth with a stunning finish. Each lip shade has been expertly designed to suit every woman's natural coloring from blondes to brunettes and fair to dark skin tones, each has their choice of shades for the perfect match.
I've got Intense Fushia which is designed for ladies with Rose skin tone(if you have dark hair, blue eyes and very pale skin) and Burning Rose caters for those with Golden Fair skin tone.
Open Eyes Chrome Intensity
The collection is formulated with Pure Refined Micro-Pigments that delivers a highly pearlised finish. According to the description, one application is all it takes for iridescent color to stay on throughout the day. Unfortunately, the eyeshadows creased on me 6 hours later.
Super Liner 24H Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
This gel eyeliner promises a smooth, creamy texture which makes it easy to swipe across your lids, with the brush that comes along with it. It comes in the form of a waterproof formula that claims to provide up to 24 hours of wear.
I haven't give this a test-drive yet so will post up a review later. A swatch of the product is enough to impress me; when compared with the Maybelline gel-liner which I've been using for close to a year now, the L'OREAL one has a smoother application and not as drying as the liner by Maybelline.
And I managed to remove the cover from the Elizabeth Arden brush (lol) The synthetic brush is firm that gives me perfect control to apply on the gel-liner. However is not recommended for those with bulky hands because it is so petite - shortest handle out of the trio!
The GIVEAWAY is still ongoing until July 11th, 2010!!
Also, there will be an Elizabeth Arden warehouse sale tomorrow! WHO IS GOING?!?!
