hello it’s me again! 😀
ok, so i didnt blog for one week ;( but i got excuse one, cos i was away for a 3D2N trip in Genting! i just got back last night after three days of non-stop stuffing my face with food and also lots of fun fun fun! I know how I mentioned previously that there wasn’t much to do at Genting, but I was wrong O.O guess I just didn’t do my research properly the last time I was there!
did mean to blog while i was there and even brought my laptop along, but we were packed with activities during the three days, so i was too tired to blog D: i will make up for it this week instead, and blog more! don’t go away okay! this time it’s for real one cos i’ve already edited all the photos that are just waiting to be posted up only! 😀
moving back in time: attended a ZA event that was held at Les Affaires, Wisma Atria, last last week!
i blogged about Les Affaires here when they hosted me and some readers for a girls’ night in, so it was nostalgic to be back in the same space again for another event 🙂
what we went home with from the event: some of ZA’s latest products which are absolute love!
ZA Lip Drops (03 Hey Cutie), Pure Shine Lips (02 Nuance Rose) and Eyes Groovy (06 Mauve Berry)
some captures from the event, the new Pure Shine lippies come in an amazing array of TEN different colors, same as the Lip Drops! as for the Eyes Groovy, there are TWO new colors, the other shade you see above is called Glamorous Gold.
we had a little presentation on how to match lip and eyeshadow colors, from playful and fun to flirty and sexy outfits, put together with Les Affaires’ super comfy and pretty lounge/sleepwear, which can be worn both in and out of your bedroom 😀
and for a sweet treat, the Tiramisu Hero made a special appearance at the event! i LOVE the little illustration/logo by Peggy, it’s so adorable! and the tiramisu itself is mad addictive too! go and check out their customised tiramisu, you can adjust the alcohol content, wetness and sweetness to your taste to get that perfect tiramisu for your sweet tooth!
a few photos with the two pretty sweethearts i attended the event with: Tricia and Ling! thanks for the fun night, girls! 😀 also with Peggy and Aileen when they came down to check how the tiramisu was doing! hehe. i’m wearing TheVelvetDolls’ upcoming white blazer and crochet cropped top, with Crayola Shorts in pink launched previously. the shoes are from Sœurs! ^^ if you noticed, Ling’s in the Bianca Lace Dress, and Garden of Eden Floral Blazer that i loaned her for the evening! so pretty right! 😀 😀 😀
it was a really fun and girly evening of trying on pretty lounge/sleepwear, as well as getting all excited over choosing shades from Lip Drops and Pure Shine for keeps! we even got to bring home an apparel from Les Affaires too 😉
back to the products, i am soooooo in love with the shades that i chose for the ZA Pure Shine and Lip Drops! had the makeup artist at the event pick shades suitable for me, and she chose the perfect shade. i love the Pure Shine lippie especially and have been wearing it on my lips so often!
the Pure Shine comes with moisturising agents like Collagen Complex, Hyaluronic Acid and Evening Primrose Oil, as well as ZA’s signature Vitamin E! it has a slightly sheer pigment that imparts color to my lips while keeping it looking very natural. my lips look so soft and moisturized after applying it on! just gotta say it again, i really love the shade! it is super wearable, and gives my lips a pink and pretty hue 😀
the Lip Drops also contain the same fabulous ingredients, and is perfect to finish off your lip color by adding a juicy and plump sheen to your lips! it doesn’t feel too annoyingly sticky, and i gotta say the combination of these two lip products make my lips look oh-so-kissable ^^ i say look only, HAHA. i try not to kiss my boyfriend when i have lip products on, cos i don’t want him to get lip gloss/lip stick on his lips! :X
here’s a close up so you can check out that amazing shimmer and lip color! looks super juicy and soft, right? 😀
and i honestly am in love with this natural pink shade! however, as with most drugstore brands, the staying power of the lip color isn’t as lasting as other more expensive brands (which is not necessarily a bad thing because those lippies tend to feel very dry and chalky on the lips!) so you’d definitely want to bring out your Pure Shine for touch-ups!
the Eyes Groovy in Mauve Berry comes with four very useable colors in one convenient quad palette, with the right amount of each color to avoid leftovers! which is extremely smart, i feel. how many times have you bought a palette and found yourself using so much of one or two colors that there’s alot of leftover for the other colors even when you’ve hit the pan on that one color you kept on using? :S
swatch of the four shades. the lighter shades are not as pigmented as the dark purple (shade D) but has a very fine shimmer which looks gorgeous. my favourite shades are shade C (the lilac color) and A (subtle light gold). if you prefer intense and rich eye shadow colors, this palette may not be for you as the color payoff is not very strong, save for shade D, the dark purple.
a simple look i achieved with the Eyes Groovy in Mauve Berry palette: used shade C all over my eye, with shade D on the outer corner and to line my lower lash line! 😀
my favourite part about drugstore brands: they are just so mad affordable and easily accessible to the public!
retail prices for the following products as below:
ZA Lip Drops – $11.90
