This award winning Malaysian songbird has naturally flawless skin, natural beauty, vitality, radiance and confidence which makes her the obvious choice to endorse the Pure Beauty Brand.

Ms Carol Lee a professional Image Consultant has talked about "The Real Essence of Confidence" which is from ourselves. She shared that the real beauty is not only just our physical look but rather our inner confidence, as each of us will aged gradually and we want to age gracefully. And of course if we take good care of our physical looks, it does help to boost up a little bit our self confidence :)

After the events, there is a hands on workshop for members of media for us to try the products on the spot.

Ms.Vivian Loo, BA Manager will shared with us the right steps/ways to use Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare range.

Of course I took this opportunity to try out this range for the first time too.

I removed all my makeup in order to join the hands on workshop. Let me share with you some thoughts of the products.

Pure Beauty has 3 types of cleansing oil to suits different skin type.

Left to right : Perfect Cleansing Water (sensitive skin), Perfect Cleansing Liquid (dry skin) and Perfect Cleansing Oil (oily skin)

I tried the Perfect Cleansing Liquid, it was quite okay to use to clean off my makeup on my face.

Pomegranate Antioxidant 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser

A fluffy, skin-loving cleanser which doubles up as a mask, our 2-in-1 gel contains a natural complex of fruit and herbal extracts that gently de-stresses skin, unclogs pores and detoxifies to leave skin energized and refreshed.

This creamy foam cleanser cleans up face quite well but surprisingly it does not have that much foam as I would expect which it is good. However as per the description above, this is a cleanser can be used as a mask too as it can helps to deep cleanse our pores too. I would think this cleanser is okay to be used as a cleanser, but if its used as a mask on myself I would think it is a bit drying for my dry skin.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Toner

Made with a natural herbal complex that blends pomegranate oil with oriental herb extracts, this softening facial toner possess superb antioxidising capabilities that purify skin and reverse signs of aging and fatigue. It just takes a little... and your skin will become visibly softer, smoother and brighter every day.

The texture of the lotion is a bit thick but after I applied this on with cotton, immediately I can feel my skin is properly hydrated from the dry effect of the mask. It is important to apply toner as it prepares our skin by balancing the pHs of our skin before before it's ready for nutrients absorption.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Essence - HERO product
it has the renewing power of nature in their treatment essence. Formulated with a herbal complex made from mulberry root, rice, green tea and pomegranate oil, the essence helps your skin cells regenerate faster while detoxifying and reversing the signs of aging. With a clean slate, your skin radiates youth and vitality, day after day.

This serum would definitely suits all skin type as it is watery in texture and easy to absorb.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Eye Cream

This luxurious eye cream combines the outstanding nourishing power of natural vitamins, pomegranate oil and fruit extract with a unique formula that fights dark circles and puffiness. As it gently hydrates and invigorates the eye area, it leaves your eyes feeling energised, bright and full of youthful sparkle.

This eye cream comes in gel form and very light in texture. Very easy to absorb as well. Oh btw do remember to apply eye cream first before moisturizer as you would want to have oil seeds on your eyes right!

Pomegranate Antioxidant Gel Cream

Your skin can repair itself, but our invigorating gel cream gives it a helping hand. Formulated with a natural herb complex made from mulberry root, rice, melon, green tea and pomegranate extract, the cream penetrates deep into you skin to amplify natural regeneration mechanisms that restore energy and radiance.

This gel cream is very light in texture and can be applied for day and night for people with oily skin. And as I mentioned earlier on, I am someone who has dry skin, therefore this product is advices to be apply only for the daytime and apply their Pomegranate Antioxidant Night Cream at night time.

The full range of Pomegranate Antioxidant Skincare range

And finally a picture of myself with Chessie :) Ah.. I also want to have her beautiful mermaid hair!

I am excited that I will interviewing Fish Leong this coming 1st October 2011 for Pure Beauty Event. And I do love all her love songs! And if you want to catch a glimpse of her, please come to Sunway Pyramid Concourse level between 2-4pm and Jusco Cheras Selatan Concourse level 5.30-7pm. who knows she might sings a song or two :)

Review : Rimmel Forever Shape Super Long & Full Volume Mascara

Congrats to Ayumi Hamasaki, she is the brand new ambassador!

Apart from Rimmel London Eye – Exaggerate Liquid Eye Liner, there are some others products I received for review. Among them I received 2 tubes of mascara, which is one of my favorite cosmetic products.

I will be reviewing these two mascara in this post, i,e Rimmel Forever Shape Volume Mascara and Super Long Mascara.

Note : Both mascaras only come in one color , i.e Ultra Black

This is in pink tube is Rimmel Forever Mascara Super Long Mascara.

  • Forever Shape Polymer Formulation helps lashes maintain Perfect Shape.
  • Developed to keep lashes perfectly curved over a long period of time, Forever Shape Polymer Formulation (also known as Shape-memory Formulation) acts to strongly maintain lengthened lashes in great shape, despite added weight and eye lid movements.
  • Strong Black Fiber Formulation – 3X THICKER black fibers are included to ensure lashes extend and curl to great lengths firmly, without any fear of fibers breaking off during wear. Black-nylon fibers align themselves to the tips of the Strong Black Fibers, so extended lashes look natural yet dramatic!
  • Waterproof - strong against sweat, water or tears.
  • Contains moisturizing Rosemary Extract. Fragrance-free.

The brush applicator comes in curve shape

A closeup look at the brush applicator, the brush is slim and the mascara comes with black fiber which suppose to help to lengthen our eyelashes

Let me do experiment now with my bare eyes :)

The nude eye

Front Look after applying two layer of Rimmel Forever Shape Super Long Mascara

The side look

My review : The mascara color is intense and I will say that the mascara definitely gives me lengthening staying effect as it promises. And the mascara dried up pretty fast before I put on my second application of the mascara and my lashes got clumped together. This mascara is definitely waterproof/smudge proof as I have applied it to go work and come home 8 hours later looking fine. The black fiber on the mascara is too much (unlike the Tsuya Tsuya Angel Eyes Mascara) and the fiber stay pretty on my eyes too without much smudging .

Pros : Lengthening effect proven, color intense, waterproof/smudge proof
Cons : Lashes clumped together.

Price : RM49.90 for 8ml

This red tube mascara is Rimmel Forever Shape Full Volume which offers the lashes to look lush and voluminous.

  • Forever Shape Polymer Formulation helps lashes maintain Perfect Shape.
  • Developed to keep lashes perfectly curved over a long period of time, Forever Shape Polymer Formulation (also known as Shape-memory Formulation) acts to strongly maintain volumised lashes in great shape, despite added weight and eye lid movements.
  • Smooth and clear Volume Flash Polymer Formulation allows mascara to go on lashes glossily and lustrously.
  • Smooth Volume Powder Formulation – the layering of micronated spherical silicone-based powder - ensures smooth and voluminous effect.
  • No clumping - smooth base gently and beautifully piles on the volume without clumping.
  • Waterproof - strong against sweat, water or tears.
  • Contains moisturizing Rosemary Extract. Fragrance-free.

Unlike the Super Long mascara, this full volume mascara's brush applicator is not as curvy as the earlier on and the brush applicator is slightly bigger and dense compare to the super long mascara.

Front view

After 2 layer of application of the Rimmel Forever Shape Full Volume Mascara

Side view

My say : The color is intense, it is tested to be waterproof/smudge proof however this mascara fails to show me that my eyelashes are more voluminous .

Pros : Smudge proof/Water proof , Color intense
Cons : Cant able to see much of different that eyelashes are fuller or voluminous

Price : 49.90 for 8ml

Comparison between the 2 mascara's brush applicator

Clearly from here, Rimmel Forever Shape Full Length Mascara works better like it promises.

Both Rimmel Forever Shape mascara are only exclusive available in Watsons stores
