Product Review - Shu Uemura Sparkling Palette & Ultime8 Cleansing Oil

Sometime last week, I was invited once again by the lovely people at Shu Uemura, for the launch of their new Color Atelier eyeshadows as well as their new Ultime8 Cleansing Oil. It was indeed an exciting event, as I got to learn more about the new colors and the 2 brand new textures which are available for the Color Atelier range, and also the new luxurious cleanser Ultime8, which promises supreme, baby soft, skin. Here are some photos from the event!

From the event, I got to take home a Shu Uemura Sparkling Eyes Palette with two Color Atelier shades and also a blush, as well as a bottle of the new luxurious Shu Uemura Ultime8 Cleansing Oil to try.

Shu Uemura Color Atelier Eyeshadows and Blusher.

I was especially excited to try out the quality of the new eyeshadows from the Color Atelier range, mainly because of the color intensity and texture! The texture of the new Color Atelier shadows are not powdery like regular pressed shadows, it feels chiffon soft and silky, which allows it to glide easily onto the eyelids, great for easy blending. I decided to test out the intensity of the colors as well, so I did a little make-up trial using the new palette I received.

On me: Color Atelier Eyeshadow in White Rainbow and G641 and Blush in Soft Orange, 540.

I was indeed impressed with the intensity of the eyeshadow colors, Color Atelier White Rainbow and G641 when I was doing the trial. I didn't need to pat on too much eyeshadow, onto my lids to get the true color of the shadow, and it was really easy to blend out the colors. On the first application of the shadow, the colors came out vibrant, which shows how pigmented it really is! The texture of the shadow was heavenly, it felt like I was applying a smooth foundation onto my eye, when in fact it was eyeshadow, definitely a plus point! I also had on Color Atelier Blusher in Soft Orange, 540, a matte cheek colour. I wasnt too excited about the blusher though, I felt that it was a little difficult to blend on to my skin, and the color appeared a little too neon, perhaps the wrong shade for my skintone. The blush was pretty pigmented though, which would be a hit with those who love their cheek colors to pop!

Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil, 150ml, $65

The secret behind Ultime8 lies in its ingredients which contain 8 carefully selected botanical oils - olive, jojoba, ginger root, corn, soy bean, shea butter, safflower and camellia. Infused with a cashmere texture, it delicately lifts the toughest makeup and impurities off your skin while the premier botanical oils penetrate deep into the skin layers to awaken and revitalise skin cells, giving you the perfect canvas (skin).

I tried this product the night which I got it in my goodie bag. I usually use a regular make-up remover to remove all traces of make-up from my skin, but after trying this, I probably will never turn back! I had on a long lasting foundation and concealer, as well as waterproof mascara and eyebrow pencil. With just one swipe all over the face, all of it was gone! I usually take at least two to three rounds of remover all over the face to get off all my make-up, and the Shu Uemura Ultime8 got all of it off with just one swipe!

I have dry skin, and after make-up removal, my skin feels a little tight from the lack of moisture. With the Shu Uemura Ultime8, I noticed that after I washed the product off, my skin felt alot more hydrated, and baby soft, exactly what it promises to deliver. I've been using it everyday for about 4 days now, and I do see a fair bit of improvement in my skin texture - it looks more refined, feels more hydrated,  and is more supple to touch. I am a new fan of this product!

Thank you once again for the gorgeous invite, Shu Uemura! I really enjoyed myself at the launch, and I look forward to other exciting events which you guys have in store for the future!

Product Review - Marc Anthony True Professional Haircare

Recently, I attended a private showcase for the launch of celebrity hairstylist Marc Anthony's new line of haircare, Marc Anthony True Professional, launching islandwide next month. It was indeed an exciting event, as artistic director of Marc Anthony Salon, Marilisa Sears, did a live hair demonstration using products from the new range on three lovely models for those at the event to see.

Marc Anthony is a celebrity hairstylist to all the A-list starlets on the red carpet. His list of cientelle include big name Hollywood celebrities like Paris Hilton, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Coldplay, Fergie, Justin Bieber, and his hair work on these stars are nothing short of amazing! It was indeed an honour for me to be invited to the launch of Marc Anthony True Professional, and have the opportunity to get a first sneak preview of all the different hair products which are going to be available in Singapore from June onward. Here are some pictures from the event!

At the end of the event, I got a pleasant surprise when the lovely people awarded me with an award for Best Personal Style! Thank you guys! :)

Product Review - Marc Anthony True Professional Haircare
From the event, I got to go home with a bag of goodies to put to the test from the Marc Anthony True Professional Haircare range, and I've to say, I've tried some of them and am really impressed! I am extremely particular when it comes to haircare products, so far I've only settled for professional salon brands like Redken and L'Oreal Professionnel, which may come pricey, but Marc Anthony's new haircare range has proven to me that drugstore brands can also be effective, what more at a more affordable price!
Marc Anthony True Professional Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner, $16.90 each

Damage Repair Healing Shampoo: Gently washes away the daily toxins that eat away the hair strand so your sensitive hair is protected as it is cleansed.
Damage Repair Healing Conditioner: Deeply nourishes the multi-layered hair strand, reinforcing weak areas with healthy nutrients and smoothing the cuticle to protect the intergrity and strength of stressed hair. Hair looks shiny after just one use

Review: I was particularly drawn to this range when I first saw it, mainly because I am one of those people guilty of indulging in harsh chemical processes for hair such as permanent coloring and lots (and lots!) of heat styling on a daily basis. I used this product the night I got it, and personally, I found that the shampoo was a little harsh on my hair. After one wash with the shampoo, my hair felt a little coarse, and got slightly tangled, even though it was short, most probably due to the clarifying ingredients in the product. The conditioner, however, was a dream to use. The texture of the conditioner was very rich and creamy, the way a potent conditioning product is supposed to be, and just a little of it eased out most of the tangles in my hair which I got from the shampoo. After wash and dry, my hair felt really soft and manageable, and I especially love that this range did not weigh down my hair at all, which makes it suitable for those with oily scalp problems too. Having used the product for only one day, I did not manage to notice a huge difference in the strength of my hair, but I did notice that I got less breakage on my hairbrush after one wash.

Marc Anthony True Professional Moisture Gloss Shampoo & Conditioner, $16.90 each

Moisture Gloss Brilliant Shine Shampoo: Gently cleases your hair without stripping it of its natural radiance while infusing a moisture rich sheen. Enriched with ProVitamin B5 for maximum shine and Shea Butter and Soyabean to deeply condition each strand while promoting healthier looking hair.
Moisture Gloss Brilliant Shine Conditioner: Never heavy or waxy, it is refined to condition the hair from the cortex out so every layer of the strand is nourished with the blend of micro-silicones. From cortex to cuticle, every hair strand will glow with brilliant sparkle.

Review: I've always been a fan of shiny, healthy looking hair. For years, I've tried almost every shine-enhancing hair product you can imagine, to give my dull hair back its lustre and shine. However, after much experimentation, I find that most of the shine-enhancing hair products on the market go a little too heavy on the silicones, the key ingredient which coats the hair cuticle to give it shine, and because of this, hair tends to go flat, greasy and oily really quickly. In such humid weather like Singapore, that would be the last thing you'd need! I've been using this range of product for two days now, and I absolutely love it. The shampoo is not too drying on its own, and the conditioner is rich and heavenly. After every use, my hair dries extra shiny and surprisingly, extra moist too. I usually put on a serum to give my hair a little moisture boost, but with this product, I didn't need to. What I liked about the product too is that it was lightweight, and didn't make my hair go flat and lifeless like the other products I've tried. These two haircare products are my new must-haves in my shower bag!

Marc Anthony True Professional Dream Waves Beach Spray, $21.90 each

Dream Waves Beach Spray is a beach 'genie' in a bottle. It creates natural, effortless, beach hair worn loose, soft and wavy. It adds body and texture to straight, find strands or pumps up the curl in already wavy hair. Hydrolized Silk and Provitamin B5 protect your tresses while adding moisture and shine. Powerful UV Protectors absorb ultraviolet light to save your mane from harmful sun exposure.

A before and after shot, Nani's hair was done by me in Big Curl Setting using Dream Waves Beach Spray.

Review: I was pretty excited to receive this product as part of the goodie bag, after hearing glowing reviews about it and how it is used by many of the A-list Hollywood Stars to achieve red carpet curls and waves. I got the opportunity to test the product out on a friend who had straight hair which lied flat, and I've to say, the product really delivers! A few spritz of the product in the root and ends, I curled her hair and the end result was big, wavy hair full of texture and volume. I didnt put any hairspray in her hair after curling, and it stayed nice and wavy throughout the day, and the best part was that it didn't frizz, despite the humid weather. Thumbs up for this product!

Marc Anthony True Professional will be available in Watson's stores islandwide, from June 14th onwards. To take a look and find out more about the products which you can find from this fantastic haircare range, click HERE.

Celebrity - Hair for R&B Superstar Ashanti for HITMAN concert showcase

Sometime last year in November, the ever-famed concert showcase HITMAN: David Foster & Friends, came in to Singapore, performed in Marina Bay Sands. I got the honour of being the hairstylist to all the big stars who were to perform at the event, namely Russell Watson, Michael Bolton, and of course, R&B Superstar Ashanti. It was definitely an honour and a pleasure doing hair for all of them, especially Ashanti, as I've been following her and her music as a teen! I also managed to run into the queen of Bhutan, as she graced the event and was walking backstage. It was definitely an experience I won't forget, meeting a Hollywood starlet for the first time. Here are some photos of my work on Ashanti. Take a look!

Epitome Of Sick Beauty by Benny Tan

Sometime last year, I did a beauty shoot with photographer Benny Tan in collaboration with make-up artist Sha Shamsi. The entire theme of the shoot was focusing on extremities, beauty that was out of the ordinary. Hence, I gave the model three entire different looks for hair, each being very avant garde and sculptural in their own separate way. Here are the photos!
