Last week, i attended ZA’s Kissy Kissy Kiss! Blogger Event..
Charmian has mentioned about this new product launch during the ZA total Hydration BB Cream’s event and i’m really looking forward to it.. Thank you Charmain for the kind invitation once again!

After all the exploring and photo-taking, it’s time for me to take a rest and indulge in some light refreshment before the event starts.. To my surprise, i was given a really cutesy cup of Tiramisu (known as the Cuppa Hero from The Tiramisu Hero).. Not only it looks good, it taste Yummy as well.. I’m not a big fan of cakes (normally i’ll only have a few mouthfuls) but i managed to ’empty’ the cup…
The Tiramisu is moist and not too sweet with a slight tinge of alcohol.. Very balanced i must say!
Too bad the hotel doesn’t allow us to bring in 3rd party food, if not i’ll love to order it for my wedding luncheon’s cocktail. 😦
So what new products will ZA be launching this time?
As you can see from the picture below, one of the item will be Lip Drop which will plump up your lips with its glossy and dewy texture..

During the event, the Les Affaires’s ladies also shared with us on how to complement the different shades of lip drops with its fine selection of sleepwear.. In addition, they also shared how we turn their selection of sleepwear into ‘street-wear’.. At the end of the event, each of us get to bring home a piece of their apparel and i have chosen a sweet baby doll top (Will show you towards the end of the post).. Apologizes for the blurred photos as my camera cannot function well under low-lights condition.. 😦
The two lovely ladies who accompied me during the event and brought me so much fun.. Thank you babes!
Presenting the Sleepwear that i have chosen from Les Affaires’s newest collection (Fall / Holiday 2012)
Have chosen Pink in order to match my new ZA lip products.. 🙂
Babydoll Dress with lace is available in Peach Blush and Whisper White (S/M/L) and it belongs to Les Affaires Premium Bridal range
Made of absorbing and soft Modal Fabric (95% modal, 5% spandex jersey), the material feels really soft and comfy to the touch… I I have a long torso so it is too short for me to wear it as a dress!!! Will need to go back to get a matching bottom.. LOL!!
At the end of the event, i also brought back the newly launched ZA products for review.. I’m a big fan of pinkish shade for lip products as they will make me more demure (i cannot carry off dark shades as i’ll look really mature).. So i have chosen Shade 03 for the Lip Drop and Shade 05 for the Pure Shine Lips as the pink is on the soft / subtle side..
Rating for Lip Drop (LP) and Pure Shine (PS) Lips:
Packaging: ♥♥♥♥ (For both)
LP – Very feminine packaging with floral prints so it enables you to locate it easily in your make-up pouch.. The easy-to-squeeze tube packing will enable you to control the amount of lip-gross you wish to dispense (minus the mess).. Also, the tip has diagonally cut so it allows application closer to lips (So there’s no need for any brushes to ensure even application)
PS – Slim in size, it won’t occupy too much space in your makeup pouch… The pink ZA logo on the pearly white casing made the lipstick looks sleek and chic..
Texture: ♥♥♥♥♥ (Full marks for both)
LP – Lip Glossy isn’t very sticky so it won’t cause any form of discomfort and can be cleaned off easily.. Previously i was using Majolica Majorca’s lip gloss and it find it quite sticky (Sometimes when the wind is strong and my hair gets into the way, it will end up sticking onto my lips!!!).
PS – The lip stick is creamy so it is very easy to glide it on.. Also, the color is pigmented so you don’t need to apply a thick layer for the color to show up.. After application, it has a shiny finish but doesn’t feels sticky.. However if you prefer your lip-stick give you matt lips, then Pure Shine won’t be the appropriate product for you..
Scent: ♥♥♥♥ (For Lip Balm), ♥♥♥ (For Lipstick)
LP – Lip gloss smells sweet – floral with a nice touch of fruity scent.. Love it when my lip gloss smells nice so that my finance won’t complain that my lip products smells weird.. =x
PS – Just smells like all other lipsticks.. Will be better if it is as nice smelling as Lip drops.
Moisture Level: ♥♥♥♥ (Full marks for both)
As my lips tends to crack easily, i cannot do without lip-balm..However, these 2 products can replace my lip-balm as it helps me to prevent chapped lips.. My lips stays moist (No cracked lips) even after the products goes off (after eating / drinking).. No need to use any lip-balm prior the application of these 2 lip products! Love it! 🙂
Lip Drop retails at $11.90 and Pure Shine at $17.50 (Available exclusively at Watsons from 30 August onwards)
Both products contains glitters and i hope you can see it as it is quite difficult to capture the details…
Look at my Juicy and Plump-looking lips!!! The pinkish tint is so Kawaii, don’t you think so?
Some people said that black framed spectacles will actually make one looks very stern and serious.. But with a pink pout, i believe it will help to ‘break’ the seriousness.. Am i right? 🙂
Rating for Eyes Groovy:
Note: The Color Swatch is from Left to Right
As you can see from the swatch below, this eyeshadow will be suitable for people who prefers a more natural-looking make up.. Maybe i’m used to using UD’s eyeshadow (you should know how pigmented is it) so i find the first three colors very subtle… If you prefer the colors to be more obvious, the colors are buildable (you just have to swipe a few more times in order to get more pigments on).. Love the fact that the color combination goes on well so you don’t have to worry about having weird looking eye-make up after blending.. Eye Groovy is shimmery and is rather long-lasting (I had eye-primer on) as most of the colors can still be seen at the end of the day…
Eyes Groovy retails at $18.50 (The new colors are available exclusively at Watsons from 30 August onwards)
