Elizabeth Arden Giveaway and 5 min Ceramide Facial Mask Review

Elizabeth Arden has outdone herself again. Their new Ceremide Boosting 5 minute Facial, made up of a two step formula, instantly brightens your face and cleans even make up off your face for a thorough deep cleansing!! I absolutely LOVE it and would recommend you go try it out at once! I've also been using the product that shot Elizabeth Arden to fame - the Original Eight Hour Cream, and it is truly magical.


Products that have got me psyched!

Use the Self-Foaming Mask and Replenishing Serum no more than twice a week for about 2 months will allow you to see your skin become healthy and clear up! Your skin looks refreshed, softer, gives you a healthy glow, and if you don't have time to slot in a facial appointment the night before that special occasions, using this works just as well!

I'll be using the Elizabeth Arden liquid foundation to prove that the Ceramide Facial Mask removes makeup and leaves your skin feeling fresh ;)

Using Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude Foundation with SPF15 instantly diminishes appearance of pores and imperfections, creating flawless skin! It also moisturizes your skin for 24 hours. It's very lightweight so you can pile on layers to increase the coverage. Their key ingredients include Soy Lipid technology, natural plant extract, Vitamins C, E and radiant mineral crystals to blur fine lines and wrinkles. Perfect for all skin types and it's also available in 26 different shades retailing at $70.

BEFORE! With makeup.

How to use

It's been a long day, and you're so tired you just want to sleep as fast as possible. Removing your make up is SUCH a chore. This is where Elizabeth Arden comes in to help.

Step 1: Self-Foaming Mask

Apply a 20cent amount of he Self-Foaming Mask on the back of your hand and quickly spread this out onto your whole face. Avoid your eye area (so you have to remove your eye makeup separately) No rubbing needed, just nimble fingers. You'd immediately start to feel a sizzling, tingly even burning sensation. Don't freak out!! (and try not to giggle as it may be ticklish) This is just the activating chemical and enzymatic exfoliators cleansing and purifying your skin. Remember that this works better on uncleansed skin. 

The sizzling is thanks to the lactic acid and protease enzyme with botanical extracts which gently exfoliates and dissolves skin-clogging impurities. It also contains Glycerin which replenishes skin with moisture so it doesn't feel so drying after it has sizzled away.
Arghhh can't take the sizzling!!

It was quite an overwhelming, slightly burning sensation for me but I endured it. Once the popping stops, which is about 2 minutes later, rinse your face with luke-warm water and pat to dry. Did you notice that your makeup has been removed? I practically ran to the toilet to wash it off because it was itchy and after washing it off, my skin was slightly pink. It's all worth it though, once you see the results after the next step. Which brings me to:-

Step 2: Replenishing Serum

After washing my face off with warm water and applying the serum! 

Apply the Replenishing Serum to your face and massage into your skin in a circular motion. The serum reinforces the skin's protective barrier and locks in moisture more efficiently. The best part is that it also smooths fine lines and wrinkles over time! After I applied this replenishing serum, my face stopped being pink and the slight burning sensation went away. Instead my skin was brighter and my make up was removed!! Once the product is absorbed, complete with your preferred moisturizer.

Notice my make-up is gone without using any make up remover products apart from the Ceramide Facial Mask! Can't believe I'm sharing my makeup-less photo argh.

The Ceramide Boosting 5 Minute Facial is retailing for SGD 149 in department stores island wide.


Haven't been doing this in a while as I've been so caught up with work, but I am giving away one Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Nude finish in #4 Cream Nude, which is the shade used on my face in the above review. Worth $70!!

Fujitsu's Lifebook LH772 and portable speakers giveaway!

I managed to get an exclusive interview with Fujitsu's spokesperson, Katherine Chew, who shares more about Fujitsu's newest laptop, the Lifebook, LH772. This multimedia powerlaptop contains ONKYO® Box Speakers, DTS UltraPC II Plus™ Sound System, new 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ Processor, i7 Quad Core on the Intel® Chief River Platform with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and 2GB NVIDIA® Optimus™ graphics and a 14-inch High Definition SuperFine LCD screen.

What this means for the user? Crystal-clear sound, long battery life, and realistic visual effects.

Claire: What do you love the most about the Fujitsu LH772?
Katherine: There are quite a few unique points about this machine. I really love the new Natural Fit Dichromatic keyboard. It’s a beautifully made keyboard that epitomizes Fujitsu’s commitment to design. The colors on the individual keys are not colored on but made in a 2 step process, layer by layer. The inside joke among us is that we like to call this the Kueh-Lapis keyboard. In addition to this, the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 is also the first 14” LIFEBOOK that integrates number keypad on it. You’ll usually only find number keypad on 15” and above laptop but this is a 1st for a 14”. I think this is great, especially for students or even professionals who will need this (E.g. Teachers, Accountants etc.)
The other part which I really like about the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 is also the first time we are collaborating with ONKYO, a top Japanese audio consumer electronics giant, to create a fantastic multimedia laptop. The integrated ONKYO box speaker will provide a great audio experience for users whether they are listening to music, watching a movie or playing games on the machine.

Claire: Tell us something special about the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 that not many people will notice? 
Katherine: The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 has quite a few design elements which tend to go unnoticed because it’s very subtle. For example there are 2 pieces of suede that’s located on the base of the machine. They are strategically placed at the hottest spot of the whole machine to absorb heat so that our customers can enjoy a great experience of using it on their lap without the heat getting too uncomfortable for them. 

The ‘Made in Japan’ Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 also integrate the patented Fujitsu ventilation technology which keeps the laptop cool and allows for easy maintenance. 

The built in dust filter latch makes it easy and fuss free for users to clean and maintain the laptop, keeping it in optimum condition.

Claire: If you could improve anything about the Fujitsu LH772, what would it be?
Katherine: To make the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 even slimmer and lighter. However, that is not possible without compromising performance, heat issues or battery life.
The engineers have managed to create a great balance of having the LIFEBOOK slim and light while still having great performance, and long battery life.

Claire: What target market would suit the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772?
Katherine: The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 is actually an excellent laptop for people for all ages. Whether you are a student, a working professional, a gamer or just someone who is buying a laptop for the entire family, the specifications & features of Fujitsu LIFEBOOK LH772 meets and even exceeds all the minimum requirements for whatever the use they had in mind for the laptop.

Thank you Katherine and Fujitsu!

Maybelline's 'New York Me' party

Maybeline had a party held at Zouk! The line up was pretty cool, there was a mini fashion show, some rapping, make up tips etc!

There was a makeover section (queue was quite long!) So Crystal and I took some "BEFORE" pictures.

The lighting was too good to resist!

Also, it was insanely crowded and packed so going downstairs wasn't a very good idea. We had a peripheral vision from the top anyway!

One last "BEFORE" picture. Transformation starts now!

Some powder to even out any faded foundation

Darker eyeshadow to suit the whole 'clubbing' mood.

I love getting makeovers :X

Liquid eyeliner! (I had gel eyeliner on, which isn't as obvious as liquid eyeliner)

Curling lashes (I had no mascara on either.)

And of course, she applied mascara after. Crystal's turn!

Eyebrows filled in! And she was subjected to the exact same eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara treatment so.. here's the AFTER shot!
Our eyes seriously look bigger.


My trusty camera. Anyway, as to why there are red 'lovebite' looking marks on my arm.. more on that in another post! I did IPL (Intense pulse light).

The event ended promptly at 1030, (because zouk had to be cleared out and ready for the eager throngs queueing outside). We headed to En Grill & Dining Bar for DINNER because we had no time to eat.

By the time our food arrived, it was midnight and I was starving!!

Final picture. I haven't been wearing much make up these days. Maybelline gave me a goody bag and I have goodies to share!

From Extreme left: Iphone case, The Falsies Volume Mascara, Baby Lips lip balm in limited NY fashion edition in protecting berry flavour, Baby Lips lip balm with spf20, and Maybelline's swirl gel liner!

First give away set: Iphone case (surprise design!), the falsies mascara, pink limited NY lipbalm AND the gel liner

Monster launches Inspiration, Diamond Tears and Diesel range!

Monster Inc is set to take over the WORLD. Singapore is the FIRST country to officially launch their Inspiration, Diamond Tears and Diesel range, IN THE WORLD. 

(Giveaway at the bottom of this post!)

So before I went for the event, I was a little confused. Was beats under monster? Or was monster under beats? I also heard that monster only produced the cables for beats? Decided to rely on google, my trustworthy source.

From Wiki:
"Monster Inc. owns the Monster Cable brand of consumer audio and video cable, which is primarily used to connect audio and video components. The company produces consumer electronics accessories including audio and video cables, headphones, speakers, remotes and power conditioner equipment accessories under names including Monster Power, Monster Mobile, Monster Performance Car, Monster Game, Monster Photo, M•Design, and Beats Audio."

 Met Ai at the event and of course we had to take photos with the cool earphones!

 Photos with the models for the night!

 Beer was served at the event held at The Wavehouse!

Beats is a headphone line by Monster but, the partnership has been dissolved in Jan 2012, and you can read more about what happened here.

I've digressed a little. Ahem.

 Check out their interchangeable headbands!! To not only match your outfit, but to show off what kind of music you're listening to! I'm diggin the rocker look. Guess which headbands I'm referring to? Haha.
    The Monster Inspiration headphones will be available in Singapore (in titanium or pearl white finish) end of May 2012 and will be listed at SGD669. Has a noise cancelling function that blocks out sound completely! Good for drowning out annoying sounds (eg babies crying or neighbour's horrible crooning)

Diamond Tears
Like woah!! Check out the design on THESE earphones!! Attention grabbing for sure. All those who love bling are going mad right? I keep staring into the colours, being drawn in, all part of the scheme!  
Inspired by the musical talents of Asia’s most prominent producer, J.Y. Park, the headphone utilises Monster’s world renowned audio engineering, the same revolutionary technology used in Beats™ by Dr. Dre™ headphone line. 
·         The Monster Diamond Tears headphones (SGD699) hit the shelves end of May 2012.

Diesel VEKTR
·      Monster works in tandem with lifestyle company, Diesel, to provide consumers with a comfortable, premium-quality listening solution that blends the worlds of fashion and great sound.  

      VEKTR is for discerning consumers who have a keen eye for intricate details and a fervent passion for innovation. 

·         The Monster Diesel VEKTR headphone is listed at SGD580 and will be available mid May.

 I received a pair of Nergy earphones from Monster Inc and here's a short review on it!

As the unboxing pictures show, Monster has put in a little bit of effort on the presentation of the product, giving the user a feel that some thought, and care have gone into the delivery.

A dance/club song like Neyo’s ‘Nobody’ fared better, as the bass-heavy and punchy song greatly suited the sonic signature of the earphones.

Overall, the headphones were quite well-balanced, I was pleasantly surprised by how it managed the myriad of music I threw at it. I particularly liked the magnets on the back of each earphone which allowed them to be linked together when not in use. The tangle-free design also makes untangling the earphones when you take then out of your bag or pants a thing of the past. In short, it's great to listen with, especially for my favourite Billboard top 100 chart songs!


Woohoo! Who doesn't love freebies? Giving away TWO Monster Iphone cases, below!


How to win
