Luxury Preserved Roses debut in Singapore: ENCHANTED FIORE

Have you wished that you could preserve your roses for a tad longer? Have you tried to dry the flower bouquets given to you by your loved one because you want to keep them around longer?

Usually, roses are given as a gift towards your significant other. And, since it’s a sentimental gift, we often want to keep them around longer, but fail to do so because it’ll end up smelling bad, attracting spiders and all.

Yes, Gentlemen, now you need to know this.

ENCHANTED FIORE has debuted in Singapore, bringing in preserved roses packaged in luxury rose arrangements/ glass domes.

The advantages?

These preserved roses can last at least a year, don’t wilt and yet look just as good as live flowers. You don’t have to water them or expose them to the sunlight!

Below shows a few of my favorites:

Their prices range from SGD $50+ to $300 for an average box size. And up till $2000 for the generous huge bouquet arrangement.

Capilano Honey: World’s First Prebiotic Honey

Who doesn’t love honey?

Now, we have the world’s, first Prebiotic Honey up for grab on the supermarket shelves!

Capilano Honey, an Australia FMCG company, created a 100% natural prebiotic honey, named the Beeotic Honey.

How does it help?

It is clinically shown to improve the good-to-bad bacteria ratio in your gut which may help boost your digestive health. This premium Australian honey provides a natural source of prebiotics, natural, non-digestible fibers that pass undigested through the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract and stimulate the growth or activity of advantageous bacteria that colonize the large bowel by acting as substrate for them.

Okay, I know it might not be easy to be understood. Basically, this honey is totally different from the usual honey! These Prebiotic Honey can improve your digestive well-being! Prebiotics are natural, non-digestible fibres that ‘feed’ the good bacteria in your gut. So Good bacteria increases and bad bacteria decreases!

If you’re a health conscious person, or if you are facing any digestive problems, I’ll definitely recommend you to try Capilano’s new Beeotic Honey.

Just a tablespoon per day, keeps the problems away!:)

These honey jars come in a squeeze bottle and a basic jar. It is also safe for children above 1 years old.

Lastly, thank you Capilano for the invitation to the event! I had done a giveaway in my instagram contest and hope the 3 lucky winners enjoy them too:)

So, Capilano’s Beeotic® will be available in all leading supermarkets in Singapore. The price for a 340g squeeze bottle would be $16.80 and a 500g jar at $22.00.

Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Hi everyone!

As you know, recently I had done filler treatments with Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Medical Aesthetics and I’m really pleased with the results. Therefore, I’m back for another type of treatment, to help enhance my facial appearance further.

We reviewed the previous filler treatment done as it takes a while for the injected filler to settle down. We looked at the overall improvements to my facial appearance to determine the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

I’m glad to say that the improvements made to my face are recognizable.

Just look at the pictures side by side! On the right picture, people can immediately point out the differences as compared to the past.

After this, Dr. Terence Tan and I discussed how to use laser for face rejuvenation.

I’ve had freckles since primary school days, moreover, going under the sun for sports activities had affected my freckles spot. They basically grew bigger and became more obvious over time. To add on, my recent prewedding photoshoot was done under direct sunlight by the sea, and when I’m back from the trip, my facial technician noticed and pointed out to me that my pigmentation issue became worse.

It used to not bother me too much, but now, I’m really determined to get rid of my freckles!

(Picture from the filler treatments)

As you can see from the picture, I also have a big mark on the left side of my face that I thought could be a birth mark, but I can’t deny of the possibility of it being a big freckle spot.

For those who have freckles, I’m sure you know how I feel. Even when our skin is in tip top conditions (smooth and clean), nobody will have the impression that our skin is really good, because of the messy spots all over our face.

So, to begin, we started off with a consultation for treating my pigmentation using laser.

Dr. Terence Tan explained that his Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation treatment involves the use of the Q Switched Nd:YAG laser to remove or lighten pigmentation on the face.

This laser treatment will lighten my café au lait spots or pigmented birthmarks as well as pigments caused by sun exposure (or solar lentigo).  He also assured me that the laser treatment will not be painful and I will barely feel it, with the help of numbing cream.

Dr. Terence Tan would also do a no downtime laser rejuvenation treatment at the same time, which will even out the skin tone by lightening pigmentation and reduce pore size.

To begin, the medical assistant removed my makeup and applied the numbing cream on the areas to be treated, which is most of my face.

We waited approximately 20 minutes for the numbing cream to work before we proceed.

In the following set of pictures, you can see Dr. Terence Tan treating the 2 obvious freckles spots with the laser. One on my left cheek and the other 3 smaller ones on my right cheek.

The flash from the laser is really bright and I have to put on these “shades” to protect my eyes. However, rest assured, I felt totally no pain at all.

Dr. Terence Tan then proceeded to use the laser to treat the smaller, less visible freckles. And finally he switched the laser to rejuvenation mode. All these will combine to even out my skin tone, reduce pore size, and firm my face at the same time.

In this laser process, I also didn’t feel any pain.

I detected a slight burning smell when Dr. Terence Tan treated my entire face because of the multiple small spots that required treatment. Fret not still! It’s just my facial hair burning up, and it’s not dangerous at all.

From the picture below, you can see that the bigger freckle had turned slightly red after the laser treatment.

After the session, Dr. Terence Tan told me although the treated spots will turn darker each day, there is nothing to worry about as it will resolve within five to seven days. In the meantime, I can still continue to put on makeup and use concealer to cover the spot!

I’m not that concerned with the dark spots because there are only 2 relatively small areas that are affected and I can still cover them with my concealer!

To ensure good recovery, Dr. Terence Tan told me not to expose myself to strong sunlight post treatment, and to put on proper sunblock till the dark spot dry up and drop off on its own.

Also, depending on the patient’s condition, more than one treatment may be required. Dr. Terence Tan also gave me some cream to apply over the next 3 days on both spots that turned red to make that it recovers well.

The Treatment that I did for Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation costs $370 (includes GST).

Guess what?

I did the Treatment on a Monday, and the dark spots fell off entirely on Friday!

I’m really glad that it took only 4 days to fall off.

I’m sorry because I have no proper pic of the darkened spots, I simply cover up with concealer so it’s really not obvious!

In the following pic, I have pointed out the dark spots, on the last day before everything fell off. They have lightened up considerably.

And now, I have really clear and beautiful skin!

As for the spots, they’re gone within 1 session!

I now have clearer, brighter and less pigmented skin! I’m so glad I went ahead with this treatment with Dr. Terence Tan.

If you’re bothered by your pigmentation, feel free to consult Dr. Terence Tan for more advises on what can be done!

A shout out to Halley Medical Aesthetics once again for taking care of my face! It has changed my lifestyle and made my daily makeup routine easier!

Filler Treatment at Halley Medical Aesthetics

For those who skipped the previous consultation post with Halley Medical Aesthetics , I strongly suggest that you read the first post, about the initial consultation, to learn more about some important information that can help you learn more before going ahead with facial enhancement procedures. 

So here I am, back for the actual filler treatment!
In fact, I’m excited and glad that I went ahead with Dr. Terence Tan’s recommendations. Dr. Tan recap the last consultation session a little and he also let me know the treatment process.

In this blogpost, I’ll be sharing my Filler Treatment process.

He would be using Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volift, and Juvederm Vobella on the following areas on my face:
– Midface / Mid-cheek area
– Tear trough
– Marionette lines

What Dr. Tan would be doing is face shaping and contouring with dermal fillers.

He explained that this treatment will add dimension to my facial features and add volume to areas where it is lacking. Not only will this help me look more photogenic, it will also make me look less tired at the same time.

He explained that as people age, we lose facial volume and bone mass, which leads to a more hollow, sunken look in the cheek area. So by plumping up my mid-face area, not only will the fillers enhance my feminine features, it will also give me a more youthful look!

We started the treatment with the application of medical anesthetic cream on the treatment areas.

The anesthetic cream works well. It took approximately 20minutes before we proceeded with the filler treatment! 

Dr. Tan used his “sandwich technique” for fillers.

For certain areas, Dr. Tan used this method which involves injecting Juvederm Voluma, which is a firmer filler below for lift first before injecting Juvederm Volift or Juvederm Vobella, which are softer fillers to smooth out the fine wrinkles. This will result in a more natural look.

Just before injecting the filler, the clinic assistant placed an ice pack on the treatment area to numb it further. This was to make sure that I have a more comfortable experience during treatment.

He started the treatment by placing the fillers in my tear trough and mid-face area. This is to smoothen out the fine lines and help make my dark circles less obvious. The fillers for the mid-face area will also plump up my cheek area as there is a lack of volume in that area due to my crescent moon-shaped face.

Next, he treated my marionette lines, which are the lines that run downwards from the corners of my mouth. Marionette lines can make a person look old so by inserting fillers there, he is giving me more youthful look!

For his filler treatment, Dr. Tan used a micro-cannula or “Magic Needle” for injecting the dermal filler. He explained that the Magic Needle is not actually a needle but a cannula. Not only does this distribute the filler more evenly as it is blunt and extremely pliable, it will also slide under my skin with minimal discomfort.

You can read more about his method for the micro-cannula here: http://blog.halleymedicalaesthetics.com/the-art-of-injecting-dermal-fillers/

After injecting the fillers, we took another set of photos to compare how I look before and after.

As Dr. Tan was going through the difference, I’m amazed that it actually does make a difference to my overall appearance and face shape. It did address my concerns and the result turned out to be really natural!

I’ve placed the pictures side by side for your references:

Before: Left photo, After: Right photo

Front view

The result: Definitely more symmetrical and my face is less long and looks rounder! (Which is what I want to achieve because I have a crescent moon face.) I never realised that my mid-face area is a little ‘flat’ and that with some fillers, he was able to make my face look less like a crescent moon.

 

Left Side View:

The result: The fillers gave more dimensions to my face.

Right Side View:

The Result: My features look more enhanced and by filling in my undereye and mid-face areas, I look less tired and rejuvenated. The marionette line coming down the right corner of my mouth is now severely reduced too.

When it comes to facial contouring with fillers, Dr. Tan believes in injecting just enough and not over doing it. The result is subtle but I think I really do look better after the filler treatments!

ALSO, I HAVE ALREADY PREDICTED SOME OF THE FAQS THAT YOU GUYS WOULD ASK ME:

Is it painful? 

Overall, I feel the discomfort level is mostly 2/10. Honestly, with the anesthetics cream, ice pack, and Magic Needle, it’ll provide enough comfort. What’s more, the Juvederm brand of filler contains lidocaine, which is an anesthesia, which makes the experience a comfortable one.

How do I feel after the treatment, are there downtime? 

As mentioned in the consultation post, there is no downtime! I am able to feel the fillers,  however, there are no marks left behind after the treatment. Basically, no one will know you have had fillers done unless you tell them. 

Am I happy with the procedures? 

I definitely am! It helped me A LOT in shortening my make up process. The fillers in the tear trough and mid-face area definitely made me look less tired, and this means I do not have to apply so much concealer. I feel MUCH MORE confident knowing that my face is more symmetrical now. It definitely does help in boosting my self esteem! 

Is this a plastic surgery procedure? 

Definitely not! There was no cutting or incision with any surgical knife and there was no stitching. There was also no downtime! It’s far from it. The best part is that I still look like me! I only did some mini enhancements to help me become a better version of me. It’s definitely a different procedure! 

Well, if you’re having trouble with your imperfections and would like to do minor adjustments to your facial appearance, do not hesitate to go for a consultation! You never know how these small changes can help you in your everyday life.

I personally think that Dr. Tan is really experienced and skillful and you should look for him when it comes to facial enhancement treatments and he definitely give the best advice! 

Once again, a big thanks to Dr. Tan for taking good care of my face!

Lymphatic Body Massage: CHRYSALIS SPA SINGAPORE (Amk Hub)

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a massage and my body has been deprived of exercises due to a busy schedule.

Recently, I kick start my day with a pampering session of Lymphatic Massage, a technique used to drain waste fluids from damaged area in your body. This is exactly what I need, a good detox!

SHORT INTRODUCTION ABOUT CHRYSALIS SPA

Chrysalis Spa’s niche is in its unique and exotic therapies and products. This very tranquil, Asian & Western hybrid concept spa offers unique treatments from East Asia, such as Asian massages, exotic body scrubs and mud wraps.

Recently they have incorporated TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatments into their service offerings. Chrysalis Spa is truly and urban-escapade that provides professional health and beauty treatments to both men and women for essential body maintenance.

What is Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic drainage aids in the drainage of the lymph, which is essential as it helps to carry waste material from all parts of the body back to the heart.

The massage uses a small amount of pressure with specific rhythm and circular actions to increase the lymph flow. It is also carried out by using meridian points, which is also known as acupuncture points where energy is collected.

Is this Type of Massage suitable for everyone?

This massage is suitable for both healthy individual and also for people who are under medical needs.

Individual who undergo surgery can do this massage as it aids in healing. It regenerates the tissues and cells to lessen the scarring at the incision area, trim down the swelling and detoxify the body. However, it can only be done about 6 weeks or more after the surgery with approval from the doctor.

The massage also improve breastfeeding for women who experience complications that is usually caused by improper baby latching, sore nipples, plugged ducts and engorgement. These causes pain and discourages mothers that would lead them to give up breastfeeding. By massaging, it reduces the swelling of engorgement and plugged ducts. When these swelling are solved, it will benefit both mother and child.

For healthy individuals, it not only allows you to relax, it has benefits such as reducing pain level in the body, stress and improve general well-being.

My Experience at CHRYSALIS SPA 

When I enter the spa, the overall vibe is still okay, pretty normal. But when I entered the couple room, I become so excited! The room is beautiful, comes with a tub and a sauna room. I felt entirely detached from the shopping mall, as if I’m at batam, bali or somewhere out of SG. Never did I know that such a place existed in a neighbourhood shopping mall.

The masseuse that attended to me is great! She filled me in with details, as she massaged me. (I was given a set of disposable underwear to change into, as it would be an all off oil massage session.)

She also told me specifically why this part hurts, and how I can massage a little here and there on my own to prevent blockage, especially the sides of waist, to reduce fats!

 

The whole purpose of Lymphatic Massage is for detox and drainage. Therefore, I felt pain everywhere cause there’s blockage in my system, which is bad for health!

Pointers to take note: You will feel some body ache, as if you had jog after a long time and had muscle aches the day after. But it is perfectly normal because the massage helped to clear the blockage which will eventually help improve your blood flow and circulation.

Overall, I rate this massage session 10/10!

Being constantly cared for, I felt so comfortable and lost track of time.

I definitely LOVE the ambience of this place and wouldn’t mind coming back for more sessions!

Facial Enhancement Consultation at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Recently, I went for a consultation at Halley Medical Aesthetics to see what can be done to improve my facial appearance.

The consultation is done with Dr. Terence Tan and the session turns out very well because he is both friendly and knowledgeable. He is able to immediately point out the problems that I’m facing and even make good guesses of which features are bothering me.

From my vague understanding before the consultation, facial enhancements can really do wonder, but it takes a real face-to-face consultation with an aesthetics doctor to determine what can be done to my face, then listing the different options available, and eventually, choosing the ones that delivers the results that I wish to achieve.

My biggest insecurities are mainly my dark eye circles and my crescent shaped face that caused my jaw to be uneven. For those who know me before, I used to have a slight underbite jaw and uneven teeth, which is really unsightly. However, I have already fixed the problem with braces, but my jaw is still slightly uneven! It’s been a issue for me because it affects my self esteem at times, wishing that I can be prettier.

Other smaller issues that i wish to eliminate are my moles and freckles. I have always dreamed of a cleaner face, without so many spots.

Initially, Dr. Tan discuss with me on the possibilities of removing the moles from my face. He mentioned that the smaller ones can be removed via laser treatments (It might take a few session). However, the bigger mole has to be surgically removed, which might leave a scar. Therefore, I have decided not to touch the mole above my mouth. Anyway, it is not too big of a concern for me.

Next, Dr. Tan suggested to remove the pigmentation that is on my left upper cheek. He said that he noticed it straight away, and guessed that it would definitely leave a deep impression for anyone that sees my face. And…. he is right! This pigmentation has been there since my primary school days and I thought it was a birth mark! It is definitely obvious and people did notice it on me. I will be glad to remove this pigmentation!

Lastly, Dr, Tan tackled my biggest imperfection, the uneven chin. In fact, Dr. Tan had gone the extra mile, to suggest the possibility of injecting Fillers on certain parts of my face to help me improve my overall appearance.

As seen in the picture, Dr Tan mentioned that he can insert a combination of Juvederm Fillers to rejuvenate my face and enhance my facial features. They include Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Volift and Juvederm Voluma. The fillers will be inserted in the tear trough (undereyes) to lift the dark circles and eliminate the tired look.

It will also be used to fill up the lines that run down from the corners of my mouth (marionette lines) as well as the side of my chin to restore volume loss and even out my uneven jawline so as to give me a more attractive facial profile.

For those who are unaware, the Juvederm Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that can be found in your body to help hydrate and add volume to your skin. That is why hyaluronic acid is very commonly used in filler treatments and is definitely safe and lasting. Halley Medical Aesthetics also uses the JUVEDERM brand of fillers because it is proven to provide long lasting results.

Some FAQS that i asked Dr. Tan as well:

Will it hurt?

Dr. Tan uses a “Magic Needle” which is actually not a needle but a really thin and flexible micro-cannula. Numbing cream will be applied as well to administer the aesthetics process. The Juvederm Filler also contains lidocaine, which is an anesthesia to numb the area during treatment. The process will definitely be bearable!

Is there downtime?

There will not be any downtime at all! No one will notice that you did anything unless you tell them in specific or wait for them to spot the difference!

Will i see the difference immediately?

Yes you will! but it’s so natural so strangers will never know you did anything to your face!

How long can these last?

It should last between 1-2 years, which differs between the type of fillers used. Sometimes, lifestyle and the quality of your skin affects the lifespan of the treatment too.

Any post treatment care tips?

No alcohol for the day, and also, avoid massaging your face for the next 24 hours. Other than that, everything else is fine!

After a detailed consultation, i have decided to go ahead with injecting fillers and to laser off the “birthmark” as well as some of my moles.

If you wish to find out more on the actual procedures, do look out for my next blogpost! I’ll blog about the entire process with pictures!

If you have any facial features or imperfections that you are unhappy with, or even affects your self esteem ALOT, why not go for a quick consultation with Dr Tan to find out what can actually be done. It might be as simple as mine, to simply inject fillers! Everyone deserves to feel good and look good.

Thank you for the consultation Dr. Tan!

Korean Beauty Cosmetics: W. Lab is here in Singapore!

Yessss, W.LAB  is finally here in Singapore!

W.Lab is a Korean cosmetic brand that emphasis on the use of natural ingredients and lesser chemical. It’s no wonder how this k brand has won our heart with their extensive range of makeup and skincare products.

Early this April, W.Lab held a launch party at the Bella K Beauty House, a premium Korean hair salon, with an allocated in house nail salon, Aresa Nails, to pamper us girls further!

I had a great time at the party and brought home a whole big bag of goodies to try!

Spoiled with choices I must say, here are the goodies that I’ve received from W.Lab.

The W.Lab Makeup and skincare range consist of:

W.LAB Blooming Pocket Shadow Palette (5 matte & 5 highlighter shades)

Perfect for creating warm/smokey summer look, I personally love this palette  so much!

 

Here’s a swatch of the colors, see those glittery shades? These colors are perfect for creating light, glamourous eyelooks!

W.LAB Flower Lip and Cheek Kit( 6 shades), W.LAB Color Master Cover Kit ( 6 concealer shades)

There are 6 different shades of red/pink in the Lip & Cheek Kit and the texture of the pigments are not too heavy so they don’t leave your skin/lip sticky or greasy.

I also love the concealers that come in 6 different shades! With the green covering redness, purple covering yellowness, a lightly formulated shade being the highlighter, a darker contour shade and the rest concealing your dark circles well enough.

What I love most is certainly the size of the palettes which makes it so easy and convenient to travel with!

W.LAB BLING BLING cheek Blusher

I think this compact blusher is really pretty as it comes with different shades of pink. I especially love the top part because it’s highlighter really shines well! However, if you’re looking for a stronger blush, you might have to use the Flower Cheek kit and then stroke these Bling Bling last because they give a rather natural healthy glow finishing.

W.LAB Daily Pocket Shadow Palette (8 shades)

The Pocket Daily Palette comes with 1 eye base, 2 brown shade and 5 glitter shades. It’s perfect for the daily use and convenient to bring around!

W.LAB Velvet Color Stick, Color Up Tint, One Day Henna Tint

Like I said, spoilt with choices, I was given 3 different type of lippies to try!

I love the velvet one! It has a creamy crayon texture and the color turns out really pigmented! If you’re someone who likes tint, you can try the other 2 range which is really lasting as well!

W.LAB Sebum Out Range (Highly recommended!!)

– Consists of Peel Off Pack, Finish Pact and Finish Powder

The Peel off Pack is great! I have tried! it’s not painful and effectively pulls out dirt and blackheads.

Same goes, The Sebum Out finish pact and powder is amazing!!!

Especially in hot countries like Singapore, we are most afraid to perspire in our makeup. The finish pact and powder helps correct our skintone and sebum out all surfaces on our skin to prep our face for a long lasting finish. Our makeup can now stay fresh all day long!

W.LAB Black Kill Range

The Black kill range consists of mainly pore cleaner and tightening pack. And the brush of the pore cleaner works really well with your pore cleaning! You can use it daily or once every 2 days.

W.LAB Milk Protein Range

Consists of cleansing Foam, Cleansing Balm and Milk Bubble Body Scrub

I love milk cleansing products because while effectively cleansing your face, the milk nourishes your skin at the same time! Same goes to these Milk protein range? Smells good, feels good!

W.LAB White Holic (Quick Whitening Cream)

It’s the trend now to use whitening cream that can brighten up your face instantly and this product is certainly taking over the market! If you still want to look good without using any foundation or cushion pacts, simply spread these over your face for an instant lift!

W..LAB Mask Series

– Water Beam, Honey Beam, Egg Pore Mask

W.LAB Water Cushion Pact and W.LAB Blossom White Cushion Pact

There are actually 6 types of cushion pact, but I’m given 2 range to try!

I personally find the Blossom White more to my liking ( I have combination skin) but the water pact is indeed more moisturizing

Alright as a makeup junkie, I am really excited to play with these goodies and therefore, Here’s a Makeup of the day #MOTD that I have done up with the W.Lab products:

Below is a mini guide through process to create this endless summer sweet warm look 🙂

Products used:

FACE: SEBUM OUT FINISH PACT, BLOSSOM WHITE CUSHION- 21 Blossom Light

Girls, you’ll HAVE TO GET THIS.

The sebum out finish pact is a GEM (yes it literally contains gem complex powder)! After the usual skincare routine, I apply this sebum out pact all over my face to create a smooth setting before applying the Cushion pact. This product amazingly smoothens my skin, even uneven or rough areas like the sides of my nose, and all over my forehead area.  This product can reduce sebum secretion, and provide skin texture correction and pore care immediately.

CONCEALER: COLOR MASTER COVER KIT (6 shades)

This concealer palette gives us variety, which is professional. The purple shade covers yellowness, and the green covers redness. The other shades of brown covers blemishes and acne. The lighter shade works like a highlighter and the dark brown works like contour.

EYE: POCKET SHADOW PALETTE- DAILY

This pocket palette comes with 1 Base Shade, 2 Brown Shades & 5 Glitter Colors and in silky-smooth texture! And i love the colors because they’re my usual! You can either go orangey-light or smokey brown.

I’ve created a Summer Coral, fun and sweet eye look.

First, I apply the Eye base(1). Then, I use the Bright Peach(3) on the inner lid, and Shine Coral(4) on the outer lid. In between blends, I use Shade Brown(7).  Followed by the Highlighter shade(2) on the inner eye corner and the Mocha Brown(8) to define my outer lower lid to make my eyes wider and more awake.

CHEEKS: BLING BLING CHEEK- Pink, LIP & FLOWER CHEEK KIT (6 shades)

I can’t even… these BLING BLING CHEEK blusher is such a darling! In a single small compact, it comes in 3 different shades of pink and 1 highlighter shade. I can conveniently apply my blusher together with the highlighter shade on my upper cheek!

Tips: I even use the highlighter on my nose bridge!

Next, for me, I like my cheeks blushy pink, so I applied the rose pink (2) shade and spread it evenly on the apples of my cheeks for a slightly more pigmented blush.

LIPS: LIP & FLOWER CHEEK KIT

Same palette, multiple usage!

Now, I used the palette to create gradient lips by applying rose pink(2) on my whole lip and the dark red(6) shade in my inner lips.

My look is now complete!

Hope ya all like the look that I’ve created!:) There are too many products for me to try and I’ll be doing more reviews of the products in time to come!

Where to get them?

W.Lab products can now be found in Sasa Singapore, Aresa, Zalora and Lazada websites. Go get them now and transform into the kpop look!

Thank you for having me W.Lab &  Team MyFatPocket!<3
