7haramy1sttint3

This intensed striking red lip tint is nothing like a normal tint! The colour is super long-lasting and kept the colour on my lips even after meals! Just awesome colour for Chinese NewYear! I just find this a little too thick when I first applied which I am not so used to.

Last but not least, what caught my eyes immediately when I opened the Althea Christmas box are these 3D Shape Shading and Highlighter palettes from W. Lab. Such cute and interesting packaging yeah!

Faith in Face Mask – No.1 Hydrogel Mask Brand in Korea

faithinface

Faith in Face Mask – No.1 Hydrogel Mask  Brand in Korea”, was first launched in 2012 by a multi-national team of young cosmetic experts from Korea, Britain and Canada after 3 years of research and development. With the faith that everyone is born with an attractive and beautiful face, the Faith team strongly believes in original beauty and goes by their motto of “Have Faith in Face, Origin of Beauty”. The Faith team believes that the role of cosmetics is to reveal and highlight each individual’s true and unique beauty, rather than changing something to your face.

Faith in Face believes in using only organic and naturally derived extracts, such as vegetable collagen, essential oils, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid etc. Free of parabens and mineral oils, Faith in Face products are specially formulated to be gentle on the skin while reducing the chances of allergic reactions. Faith in Face does not perform animal testing on their products.

Received 3 of the masks from Samplestore and received the full set in Watsons Day Out! XD For this entry, I will share about the 3 variants

  • AFTER SHOWER LOOK (Received from Samplestore)
  • BLACK AND WHITE FILM STAR (Received from Samplestore)
  • NOURISH ME (Received from Samplestore)
  • HOLD ME TIGHT
  • MISS INVISIBLE PORE

Embrace moistful skin with AFTER SHOWER LOOK!

aftershower
Love the feeling of your fresh, moist and glowing skin right after a shower? AFTER SHOWER LOOK is here to give you that!

A soothing and moisturizing mask, it contains the natural moisturizing ingredient, Sodium PCA that helps supply moisture to your skin. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid which has intense hydration and moisture retention capabilities. Lastly, Camelia Oil is present to lock the moisture into your skin and helps to soothe your skin.

Embrace moistful skin with AFTER SHOWER LOOK!
faith-in-face-mask

Unlike regular microfiber and cotton sheet masks, Faith in Face’s hydrogel masks contain a high percentage of water soluble ingredients to deliver maximal hydration and superior skin rejuvenation. With a gentle formula that is suitable for sensitive skin, the hydrogel masks are also able to cool the skin, thanks to beta-glucans which rejuvenate stressed out skin. No wonder they are the No.1 Hydrogel Mask  Brand in Korea!

It wasn’t crowded but we are still unable to finish everything till closing at 10pm! I will recommend you to come on a weekday if possible!

Alive Museum first started in Korea as Trick Art Museum in Seong-eup, Jeju Island, and changed its name to “Alive Museum” in 2012. Since then, there are 15 branches of Alive Museum globally, making it the largest chain of 3D interactive illusionary art museum in the world. Outside South Korea, Alive Museum is also in Turkey, Vietnam, Thailand, China and now (from June 2014), in Singapore. Lucky us!!!!!!
