Lashes Take Off in Dramatic and Explosive Volume with Maybelline New York Volum’ Express The Rocket

Mascara is to makeup like the little black dress is to fashion – a woman who wears it is instantly chic and glamorous. No two are the same, so there’s always room in her makeup kit for another.
When it comes to lash looks, we are spoilt for choices – length, definition, colour, curl and volume. And like the little black dress, trends change season after season as well for mascara. The must-have lash look these days? High-on drama lashes that feature clump-free volume!

For clump-free voluminous lashes, you’d have to go through several cumbersome steps. Not only do you have to load your lashes with multiple coats of mascara (while waiting between coats to ensure lashes don’t clump up), you’ll have to carefully comb through lashes to get the clean pumped-up volume. Miss a step and lashes won’t end up like how you desire them to be!
Too much work? Not anymore. You’d be glad to know that you can now get the same dramatic effect from root to tip in just seconds and in one easy step! No messy clumps, just smooth volume – thanks to Maybelline New York’s latest mascara, the Volum’ Express The Rocket.

Volum’ Express The Rocket delivers eight times more root-to-tip volume – fast! This super volume explosive power comes from its special brush as well as unique formula.

Miss Hana Eyeliner Gel Pen Review

When I choose eyeliner, I always wanted something which is smudge proof, waterproof formula and long lasting. I have oily eye lid and I had an embarrassing experience before where my eyes became panda eyes due to the smudge of the eyeliner in a party.
While there are many choices of good eyeliner, I have found another good one recently, the Miss Hana Eyeliner Gel Pen. Miss Hana Eyeliner Gel Pen is a proud product from Taiwan, it’s affordable and gives good result just like those expensive cosmetic brand.
What I like most is the colors are really intense, and it’s very easy to glide on smoothly. Even though it’s really water resistant, don’t worry about the cleansing part as it’s easy to remove with eye makeup remover.

theSkintopic Introduced Latest Kiosk at The Curve As Well As New NZ Botanical Skincare Brand Evolu

Local beauty and lifestyle distributor theSkintopic has introduces the latest botanical skincare brand Evolu to their existing range of New Zealand skincare and bodycare products last month. In addition, they have also opened the fourth kiosk at The Curve as part of its rapid expansion plans in West Malaysia. The new 200 sf kiosk is set to cater residents within Bandar Utama and Mutiara Damansara cathment area.
Mr. Frederick Loh, Executive Director of theSkintopic said, “We are delighted to have Evolu on board as its brand philosophy is a perfect fit for the existing range of natural skincare and bodycare products at theSkintopic. We are constantly on the lookout for new and natural beauty brands to introduce to the Malaysian market. Based on the growing demands of our existing customer base, we are confident that Evolu will fit the needs of discerning women who prefer natural products for their skin.”
The founder and managing director of Evolu, Kati Kasza has flew from New Zealand to meet the media friends at the event. An explorer by nature, Kati Kasza travelled widely as an adult. Over time, she observed that her skin had a remarkable capacity to remember. It remembered air-conditioned interiors, time-zone changes and nights of abbreviated sleep. Products that promised to suppress the visible effects of stress left her skin unchanged. So, drawing on her family background, Kati resolved to look for her own solution. Her belief in the power of plants to promote lasting beauty inspired her creation of Evolu, a simple yet potent skincare system, custom-designed to nourish and restore balance to the skin’s natural mechanisms.
