Brand : KATE Cosmetics by Kanebo
Product : Blendzone Eyeshadow Duo in BR2
Retail Price : RM49


Description : 
An eyeshadow palette with 2 shades that can be used individually or mixed, and can be easily blended for a fine gradation. 

 



First Impression :
Finally, I was literally jumping for joy when I saw this FULL-SIZED item in my box! I love KATE Cosmetics products. Especially this particular eyeshadow which I own one as well but in BK-1. Thank goodness I have received an easy-to-wear, daily kind of shade. Used it once for my part-time work last weekend and boy, I am in love with the brown shade! Not so crazy about the pink shade as its tad too frosty and light for my skintone but it requires extra blending to tone down frosty appearance. If this shade is not your cup of tea, fret not because this baby comes in 8 shades! 

Where to find them : 
At all major Guardian, Watsons & Sasa outlets near you!

Brand : Narciso Rodriguez For Her
Product : EDT
Price : ~

Description : 
At the source of for her is the essence of Egyptian Musk—a warm, silky oil, blended with top notes revealing a solar musk refreshed by orange blossoms and osmanthus. In the middle note, the musk moves into a more abstract mood of enveloping, impalpable softness. Here, the musk is luminous but retains its creamy richness in the presence of amberlyn and vanilla. The bottom note unveils the sensorial, voluptuous dimension of musk with vetiver, taking on feminine accents while the sensuality of the wooden notes are magnified.

First Impression : 
I LOVE the scent. Enough said.

Brand : Clarins
Product : White Plus Total Luminescent Intensive Brightening Serum
Retail Price : RM295 (30ml)

Description :
The most advanced care for a clearer, more even skin with the pink glow of good health and total luminescence.

Ingredients :
Hyaluronic acid and glycerine help to restore the water reserves of the skin to give it more radiance and transparency. Extracts of spergularia and alchemila slow down hyper-pigmentation for a more even and clearer complexion. Extract of ginkgo biloba maintains micro-circulation in the skin to imbue it with the pink glow of good health.

First Impression : 
I am superbly happy at the amount of sachets provided for me to test this product out! Sufficient for two weeks I think. This is the way it should be. (AHEM. >_> )
Will try it out by this week and we shall see the difference!



In a nutshell, this is my second beauty box and all thanks to Vanity Trove Malaysia for providing me this opportunity and experience. It was indeed fun waiting for a box full of surprises :) 
Looking forward to more awesome troves to come!
