:DSorry for the lack in updates as I am really busy at work…
I have just started work in a new company and currently trying to adapt to the 100% change in job scope..
As i have no prior experience in what i’m doing now, many new challenges awaits me but i’m all game for it!Despite the hectic schedule, i’ll still find time to blog and share new things with all my readers…
Few hours ago, i attended ZA Cosmetic Preview Launch whereby they will be showcasing some new products…
Event is held at Selfish Gene Cafe which is located at 40 Craig Road…
Located near Tanjong Pagar Market, walk straight and turn left at the junction…
Walk straight in the direction of the shop houses and you can locate the cafe in the middle of the street…
In the nutshell, Selfish Gene Cafe is a laid back cafe which serves a variety of western cuisine like sandwiches, salads, Coffee, tea, pastry, homemade baked goodies etc..
Upon stepping in, you will have a warm and cozy feeling whereby you can sit back and relax…
This is how life should be – Full of Happiness and Positiveness while keeping it Simple and Unpretentious.
This cafe also serves all day breakfast @ affordable prices.. 🙂
This tag-line really caught my attention…
Gene is really passionate in providing all customers with excellent food.. Your taste buds are in for a treat!
As i had a very sinful and heavy breakfast prepared by sweet D (Thank you!!!), i only ordered Tea and Tiramisu to ease my greediness and ‘itchy mouth’….
I’m sure many of you have heard of and tried ZA’s foundation..
Since the launch of ZA in 1997, this brand has been recognized worldwide with its outstanding range of base products… Some products worth mentioning will be its Skin Beauty 2 Way Foundation, Concealer Perfection and True White Plus 2 way foundation…
Research conducted by ZA revealed that Asian Woman in their 20s prefer to use foundation to conceal skin imperfections and to brighten their skin. In addition, they prefer whitening functions in their foundation and will prefer it in liquid form..
Hence, due to the preferences of the target group, ZA formulated a new 3 in one liquid foundation that will conceal imperfection, brighten and whiten skin..
Introducing the new baby – ZA True White Plus Liquid Foundation…
This liquid foundation will give you pearly bright skin with radiant finish while it whitens and minimizes dark spots, freckles and pores..
Celebrity Make-up Artist Larry Yeo loves this product and he claims that this foundation glides on smoothly.. He raves that the excellent array of film formers- Spotless Brightening Powder will give an smoother and brightening touch which awakes skin instantly.
6 Characteristics of ZA True White Plus Liquid Foundation
1) Bright White Complex helps to reduce dark spots, imperfections, freckles and pores. It comprises of
Spotless Brightening Powder and Poreless Powder to give skin a pearly white luster and clarity.
The spotless brightening powder will help reflect white lights from the exterior to minimize the look of imperfections and bring out the skin’s inner light. In this way, skin will look more radiant, clearer and brighter..
The poreless powder will helps reduces pore openings by diffusing lights and minimizes visibility. The silky light texture spreads over skin effortlessly to hide bumpy surfaces.
2) Treats the root cause of dark spots and pigmentation with Vitamin C derivation which suppresses the production of Melamie.
3) Prevents sun-damaged skin with its SPF 25 PA++ protection.
4) Contains signature ingredients (Tested by dermatologists to prevent any form of allergy) – Minerals, Vitamin E, hyaluronic acid.
5) Spreads smoothly without any heavy and cakey feeling.
6) Long lasting finish which gives you fresh and beautiful skin all day long.
To use, push dispenser once and spread foundation evenly from the centre of your face (Outwards). If you need better coverage on certain areas of your face, just take a small amount and pat it onto affected spots..
To further address the need for brighter finish on skin tone, this new foundation focuses more towards a pinkish tone. In this way, shades of the same luminosity (from existing range) will look brighter upon application.. There’s 6 colors to choose from…
As i have yellowish skin tone, OC00 is the suitable shade for me..
Tested the liquid foundation on the spot and i really love the smooth texture.. The watery texture will melt into a powdery form when you spread it so there’s isn’t any greasy feel.. It feels very light on skin without any unpleasant fragrance.. It also leaves behind a pearly sheen which instantly brightens up my dull skin..
If you are looking for a make-up removal to remove your make-up at the end of the day, try another ZA’s star product – The Deep Cleansing Oil.
Now available in a larger bottle (200ml), this cleansing oil with excellent cleansing power will dissolve pore-clogging sebum, impurities and make up residue easily and thoroughly. Most important of all, it is dermatologist tested. It works even on comedo deeply embedded in pores and on hard to cleanse water-proof make up… Formulated with natural plant oils and Vitamin E, this cleansing oil liquefies instantly once it is in contact with water which leaves skin smooth after cleaning.
During the session, Gene also taught us coffee art.. How cool is that??
1) Foamy milk
2) Chocolate Syrup
3) Chocolate powder
5) Stable hands.
You can start off with sprinkling some coco powder onto the milk…
Next, squeeze the chocolate syrup on..
Lastly, use a toothpick to swirl the chocolate syrup around..
Tadahhh, your coffee art is now ready!
Pretty Yiying creating her master piece..
Here’s my ugly looking coffee art.. Hahahaha!!
Now, i will put the products to the test… As theyran out of my shade for the True White Plus liquid foundation, i can only review it on my face once they have courier it to me…
Meanwhile, i will test the cleansing oil using the good old method… I will see how it fares in removing my daily make-up which consists of waterproof mascara and eye-liner…
The cleansing oil has a slight scent which reminds me of baby wipes. Upon make up removal, the cleansing oil feels warm and smooth. All my make-up, including my waterproof eyeliner and mascara can be removed effortlessly without much rubbing. Skin doesn’t feel greasy after I wash it off.
After cleansing off, I follow up with my toner and no make-up residue is observed. The product is gentle enough for my sensitive skin and yet strong enough to remove my long-lasting waterproof make-up. It can be cleanse off easily without any oily film left behind. Instead, it leaves my skin clean and supple. Will highly recommend this cleansing oil as it works very well without a hefty price tag..
ZA True White Plus liquid foundation is retailing at $23.50 while ZA Deep Cleansing Oil is retailing at $22.90..
It will be available exclusively in Watson stores from 01 March 2012 onwards…
