BeautyBlender Pure

Beautyblender has appeared in countless magazine articles.

Beautyblender has been featured on numerous television shows and is often used behind the scenes.

A flawless look starts with the perfect canvas – clean, beautiful skin.

Most of us have come to rely on the original beautyblender – the iconic bright pink elliptically shaped, hi-definition cosmetic sponge – for picture-perfect makeup application.

Celebrity makeup artist Rea Ann Silva is taking her expertise in creating the flawless face a step further with the launch of beautyblender pure.

Beautyblender pure utilizes the innovative shape, texture and material of the famed beautyblender makeup sponge and strips it to its core to provide woman with the perfect tool for prepping their skin for makeup application. Ideal for at-home beauties and professional aestheticians alike, pure is designed to be used with moisturizers, eye treatment serums and lotions, makeup primers and makeup removers to be a truly hygienic, gentle way to ensure optimal use of the most advanced skin care products.

Our skin care routine is an investment and applying product with our fingers leaves for spotty coverage, less penetration of product in key areas around the eyes and nose and allows for dirt to travel over freshly cleansed skin.

Why beautyblender pure ?

Shape : beautyblender’s patent-pending elliptical shape makes application foolproof by allowing you to access hard-to-reach areas with stunning ease.

Texture : Its suede texture is sensual to the touch and its unique curves fit the contours of your face.

Material : beautyblender is latex free, non-allergenic and odour free.

Color : In celebration of nature’s most perfect design –the egg – pure is clean and simple.

How Do You Use pure ?

Bounce pure against your face when applying makeup primers, eye treatments and moisturizing serums. Bouncing, called stippling in the makeup world, blends product evenly onto the skin ensuring complete coverage.

Use pure’s pointed side for hard-to-reach spots like around the nose and mouth, and under the eyes.

Use the round base on the larger areas of your face such as your forehead, cheeks and chin.

Use pure damp when any applying primer or skin care products or makeup. When pure is wet, it is normal for it to expand to nearly twice its original size. Wash after use with the new solid cleanser and let air dry.

My Thoughts

This egg shaped sponge feels soft, smooth and bouncy, and has a nice scent.  Its unique shape fits nicely onto my hand and is easy to hold on.  I prefer to use it dry. 

With it, makes applying the makeup base, like BB cream and foundation real easy.  

I will squeeze an appropriate amount of BB cream or foundation on the sponge and apply.  After applying, my face looks amazingly beautiful with a smooth, flawless, even and natural finish.  

I will use the round base for my forehead, cheeks and neck.  And the pointed tip is great for applying on the corner of my nose and eyes area.

It works well in applying moisturizer too.  I will squeeze the moisturizer on the round base and apply onto my face.  While applying in circular motion, my skin feels very comfortable with the soft and smooth sponge as if I am massaging my face and neck, and the moisturizer absorbs fast and evenly into my skin.

With this amazing sponge, there are no more messy hands for me.

Every time after use, I will wash it with cleansing or bath foam, and the sponge is as clean as new.

However, it does not work well with cleansing foam.  No matter with how much cleanser and water, and much hard I rub, the cleansing foam will not lather to bubbles. 

My cat loves this sponge too.  It is a fun ball game for her.

Carlo Rino $80 Voucher

$10 off voucher, for minimum purchase of $80.
$20 off voucher, for minimum purchase of $100.
$50 off voucher, for minimum purchase of $150.

The vouchers are not valid for sales items.

The expiry date of these vouchers is 30 April 2012.


My cousin and I each won a $80 Voucher from Carlo Rino Singapore Facebook - Because We ♥ Love You Giveaway.

This is such a disappointing winning.  They should have stated that it's a $10, $20 and $50 voucher, instead of $80.  Or post a picture of it on their Facebook, so that we are able to read its criteria.

According to the sales promoter, they are having sales now and the sales prices are much worthy than the discount from the vouchers.

I am super unhappy about wasting my time and transport fee to travel so far away to NorthPoint Mall to collect these useless vouchers.  They should have mail them to us.

Sorry to say that I have a lousy feeling of being cheated.  They do not seem to be sincere in giving out the prizes. 

As these are useless vouchers, no wonder, they are so nice to giveaway 100 x $80 vouchers.  Many of my friends that won, gave up their prizes.  Guess, my cousin and I are the stupid ones who went to collect them.   

Hopefully, they will be more sincere and generous for their future giveaways.

Apple Skin Care Eye Mask

I redeemed a free Apple Skin Care Eye Mask from The Sample Store.


My Thoughts

This eye mask contains a lot of transparent essence and I love its sweet perfume scent.  It fits nicely and sticks on well onto my eyes, and the essence will not sting the eyes.

I love the unique shape of this paper mask that covers my entire eyes area, which makes me look like "batman".  While masking, it is really nice that I am able to keep my eyes open to do my stuff and watch television. 

In order not to waste the lots of remaining essence left on the foil, I will apply it onto my neck and shoulders.  Or keep it in the refrigerator.  The next evening, I will use it to massage my eyes area. 

After masking, it leaves my skin with the sticky feeling.

The next morning, the skin around my eyes is so much softer, smoother and brighter.

Harvey Prince Ageless Anti-Age Perfume / Eau Flirt Sample

Harvey Prince Ageless Anti-Age Perfume

Now, smell as young as you feel. Inspired by scientific research and crafted with love, Ageless by Harvey Prince defies your skin’s natural age-revealing scent. Its notes are an inviting blend of pink grapefruit, pomegranate, luscious mango, with a dry down of jasmine and natural musk.

Here's the secret: Ageless is inspired by recent studies conducted by the Smell n Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, which find pink grapefruit and mango to be the olfactory antidote to aging. The fragrant notes disguise the familiar scent of age, caused by the breakdown of particular fatty acids in your skin.

Women from around the world are loving Ageless; based on their testimonials and our own trials, Ageless makes you feel and smell 8-12 years younger.

Notes : Pink Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Mango, Jasmine, Tuberose, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood.
Style : Fresh. Sensual. Luminous.


Harvey Prince Ageless Anti-Age Perfume  100ml

Harvey Prince Ageless Anti-Age Perfume smells so nice, it is exactly the type of soothing scent which I love.  And this brand is not available in Singapore.  So, I am really happy to own it.

Harvey Prince Eau Flirt Sample

This perfume flirts for you.It starts with whispers…“Who’s that girl?” The irresistible and flirty fragrance of Eau Flirt captures the imagination of the entire room with the subtle, sexy allure of flowers and spice.

“What’s her secret?” Lean in closer. The fragrance contains notes of pumpkin pie and lavender, which have been shown to evoke a more passionate response in men than any other smell. Why do men find these two scents so arousing? Experts believe men subconsciously associate pumpkin and lavender with happy, positive and stimulating memories.

An encounter with Eau Flirt reveals top notes of sweet lavender and a cocktail of bright citrus, followed by a mingling of feminine florals freesia, ylang ylang and jasmine. Delicate spices and warm nighttime amber offer a graceful and balanced flourish.

Notes : Lavender, Pumpkin Pie, Citrus, Jasmine, Freesia, Ylang Ylang, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ambers
Style : Seductive. Sparkling. Wicked.

I'm purposed to receive a Harvey Prince Ageless Anti-Age Perfume 50ml worth $55 but I'm really excited to open the package and saw a 100ml bottle inside it.

I got it from Fashionista Era
