Sephora opened it's 14th store in Mid Valley Megamall!

To all beauty lovers, if you do not know yet Sephora Malaysia opened their 14th store recently in Mid Valley Megamall! Hooray! It's located at the old Padini store opposite Metrojaya. 

All girls will agree Sephora is the one stop center for women ; where we can get our beauty fix from head to toe! 

Some of us asked what about the the existing outlet in Robinson Gardens Mall and I have just checked that the store will be still opened despite the opening of the Mid Valley store. I guess for different target markets :)

I'm looking forward to check out this new GlamGlow Daily Treatment Cleanser in Sephora ever since I had  a sneak peek of it at the opening party. Am excited to find out that it's already available in store and if I'm not mistaken it's about RM110 (tbc) per tube. Please note that GlamGlow is sold exclusively in Sephora only.

Introduction of Make Up For Ever HD Cosmetic Range

Make Up For Ever has been for Malaysia for quite some times and they have some ups & downs and I was glad to find out that they have finally settled down and available exclusively in all Sephora Malaysia. 

If you have heard of them before, I'm sure you know how they are popular with their High Definition (HD) and Aqua makeup products. To be honest I have not really explored their brand before and was glad to be invited to learn more about their range in one of their workshop.  

Thank you Stanley Wong (Brand Manager for Make Up For Ever Malaysia) & his team for inviting me to the first MUFE blogger workshop and we would be talking all about Make Up For Ever HD makeup in this post.

He shared how Make Up Forever and how HD range was developed about in partnership with film and TV technicians back in year 2008 to meet the demands of professional makeup artists and everyday women. HD cameras magnify and exaggerate fine lines and wrinkles, imperfections, shine and make-up mistakes. A HD Complexion is the only way to be invisible to high-definition cameras and the naked eye for the most naturally flawless complexion.

Very often we heard about High Definition on TVs, mobile phone and images. 

How often do we heard about High Definition make up. Correct me if I'm wrong that Make Up For Ever is the first brand to introduced High Definition (HD) make up. 

In high definition, an image was presented 6 times more precise than before, which means every detail, line, redness and spot of powder was more visually obvious on the skin. To help counteract the implications of this new digital technology and its superfine granularity, Dany Sanz (Creator and Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER) began researching on ingredients for new formulas. She even got professional cameramen to test the success of the formulas. After years of trials and testing, the first HD make-up range was born in 2008 with the introduction of a liquid foundation and loose powder that promise to conceal imperfections and yet keep the skin utmost fine. 

Make Up For Ever HD makeup range create a new generation of makeup that is invisible on high-definition cameras and to the naked eye. Thanks to the soft-focus effect of the formulas and the wide variety of shades available, every skin type can now enjoy flawless perfection in their own comfort.

All thanks to Make Up For Ever Malaysia as we had the privilege to see how Jason Ooi who is the Education & Artistry Exec did a demo on one of his colleague Shirley.

I bet a lot of you don't know that he was the one who did the make up for American Next Top Model Cycle 20 winner Jourdan Miller while she was in Malaysia last year. 
Make Up For Ever HD Elixir 12ml - RM148 RM160

An innovative serum that instantly hydrates and adds radiance to the skin. This unique, lightweight elixir absorbs quickly into the skin, instantly hydrating and brightening the complexion. The breakthrough formula contains D-Panthenol and glycerin to ensure an immediate boost of hydration (+520% after 15 minutes) that lasts throughout the day (+175% after 6 hours). Argatensyl is added to provide an immediate smoothing effect. Each ingredient was specifically added to prepare skin for high-definition makeup—so you can count on the camera picking up the perks of this perfecting formula. This product is oil & paraben free.

Make Up For Ever HD Elixir can be used alone right after skincare before primer.

And the beauty of this Elixir is that you can either mix with their HD Primer or HD Foundation and mix it together to use especially when you are in the rush. If you want to have more lasting and higher coverage make up, it's better to layer the HD Foundation on top of HD Elixir and HP Primer.

The texture of Make Up For Ever HD Elixir is very watery and absorb quickly into the skin. I could feel my skin feeling more hydrated, smoother and a little bit brighter. I was told that this Elixir can be used on any part of our face including on our eyes and lips. Apply HD Elixir to the eye area to minimize the appearance of fine lines and puffiness or to the entire eye face to help erase signs of fatigue and dehydration.It could immediately hydrate the dry lips. Do note that only small amount of HD Elixir is needed for the whole face

Make Up For Ever HD Primer 30ml - RM 155 (price remains the same after increment)

Make Up For Ever Primer deeply nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect. Creates a protective layer on the skin allowing foundation to glide on easily and last longer.HD Microperfecting Primer deeply nourishes, moisturizes, and softens the skin, creating a glowing effect. Creates a protective layer on the skin allowing foundation to glide on easily and last longer. 

MUFE HD Primer comes in six color-correcting shades and one transparent shade. And each shades has different benefits.

Neutral : adds natural luminosity to the complexion
Green : minimizes redness - ideal for skin with rosacea
Mauve : counteracts sallow undertones
Caramel : combats ashiness in medium to dark skin tones/warms golden tones
Blue : adds radiance to fair skin/ reduces minor imperfections
Yellow : lightens dark complexions
Pink : brightens the complexion/ counteracts sallow undertones

Note that in Malaysia we only have 5 shades in total which includes one transparent  shade. Like the HD Elixir, HD Primer can be used alone to correct our uneven skin tone or mixed with the HD Foundation. I was glad to found out  at the event that if we bought the wrong foundation colour (or if our skin tone has changed) we can use the colour correcting HD Primer to correct it without throwing the foundation away! 

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation 30ml - RM 175 RM185

An oil-free medium coverage liquid foundation that covers skin imperfections flawlessly while remaining invisible even under the most magnifying HD lens. This foundation creates a soft-focus effect, which is designed to meet the coverage concerns of those in the spotlight. It leaves your complexion with such a flawless finish, it can withstand bright or harsh lighting. In Malaysia we have 12 shades available to suits for different skin tone. This is one of the best seller under Make Up Forever Malaysia and I could see why because it is light yet buildable with layers. And if you have dry skin better to apply MUFE HDElixir and HD Primer first before applying this so that the skin is hydrated and foundation would be more lasting.

Make Up For Ever HD Cream Blush 2.8g - RM125 (price remains the same after increment)

This MUFE HD Cream Blush is a new add on to the HD family. It would replaced the existing one in pump bottle. This new cream blush is an ultra blendable blush with a natural look and finish made specifically for HD technology. It is formulated with the perfect balance of oils, waxes, and powders, HD Blush combines the second-skin look of a cream with the ease of a powder. Created for HD technology, this formula blends into skin with no visible texture for a truly natural flush of color. It’s completely weightless and can be worn over or under powder to sculpt and highlight cheeks flawlessly. There are total of 15 shades under the MUFE HD Cream Blush.

I personally prefer the HD cream blush compared to their old packaging as it's easier to use.

MUFE HD Cream Blush is really pigmented and easy to blend as it turns into powder after I blend it.. It lasts me the whole day after I set it with their HD Pressed Powder.

Make Up For Ever HD Pressed Powder - RM148 RM150

Another new product that is recently added in to the HD family is the MUFE HD Pressed Powder. A silky, lightweight finishing powder that softens the appearance of fine lines and pores. Created specifically for HD technology, this talc-free professional touch-up powder is perfect for use throughout the day to reduce shine and slightly mattify skin. It adds a soft-focus, naturally radiant effect to blur imperfections, such as fine lines and pores, while remaining completely invisible to even the most magnified HD lens. I tried this and I love how this pressed powder texture is very fine and set my makeup nicely!

I was told that MUFE HD Pressed Powder is best to used with their 124 Powder Kabuki Brush RM205.

A dome-shaped, dense kabuki brush for smooth and even application.This is a makeup kit staple, this brush is the ideal tool for applying finishing powder. Its short, slender handle allows for controlled application while its dense head creates a lightweight, flawless result. This brush features both straight and wavy fibers, and can be used with all loose and compact powders. Although this is made by synthetic I love the soft brush bristle against my skin! 

I was told MUFE would be introducing a full range of Artisan Brushes soon. And this 154 Buffer Blush Brush is one of them and it's selling at RM200.

 Shirley's looked so flawless after Jason used the MUFE HD range on her.

Make Up For Ever HD range is now already available in store! And if you asked me which products should you try first from HD range, my personal favourite would be HD Foundation, HD Cream Blush and HD Pressed Powder. 

And besides the normal make up range, Make Up For Ever also offers artistic, pro range and special effect make up and it's available exclusively in Make Up For Ever Pro Boutique which is located on Level 2 of Sephora Starhill.

Make Up For Ever range is available at all Sephora Malaysia nationwide includes Sephora KLCC, Sephora Starhill, Sephora Paradigm Mall, Sephora Sunway Pyramid, Sephora Nu Sentral and Sephora Gurney Paragon.

Note : Starting 17 April 2014, some of the prices of Make Up For Ever products in Malaysia have been increased to be in line with their global pricing.

Sephora Malaysia opened in Nu Sentral Mall, KL

Good news to you all who do not live in PJ or in KL but somewhere near Bangsar, MV or Brickfields because Sephora has just opened their sixth store in Nu Sentral 2 weeks ago! And coming up Sephora Malausia would be opening in Queenbay Mall, Penang! 

Well this Nu Sentral is a new mall located strategically located next to KL Sentral where this is one of the largest transit hub in Malaysia as there are Putra Lrt, KTM Komuter, KTM Intercity, Monorail, Klia ERL and bus station. And now commuters who are taking public transport could easily get down at KL Sentral to grab their beauty needs from Sephora, Nu Sentral before continuing their journey. 

Do you know that Sephora is really generous on the day of their opening in Nu Sentral as 1st 50 person who enter the store would get RM100 cash voucher and the next 150 people would get RM50 cash voucher! Are you one of the lucky ones?

Thanks to Sephora Malaysia, I had the privilege to enter the store before they officially opened the door at 3pm on 29 March 2014. I took a lot of pictures and these are some of them :) 

And if you have not been to Sephora Nu Sentral yet, take this as a virtual tour! 

Sephora is a girl's heaven! I love how I could try out the products in Sephora without SAs following me around like in beauty counters in shopping mall.

There are counters for you to try out the products at the Makeup section. Love the concept because you can feel free to try out anything you see in Sephora Malaysia! 

Fragrance Section

I was told Shu Uemura has recently entered Sephora. Yay more choices to come :)

 Huge selection of Sephora own cosmetic brands! 

I was introduced to the latest Sephora Upside Down Mascara, the wand does looked unique. Have not had the opportunity to try. Anyone try this before , care to share? 

You will never run of eyeshadow shades to wear if you own all these Sephora eyeshadows!

 Bare Essentuals - Sephora exclusive

 Make Up For Ever - Sephora exclusive

 Soap & Glory - Sephora exclusive

 Urban Decay - Sephora exclusive 

All the Naked palette is available in Sephora! You know where to get them now!

Philosophy skincare - Sephora exclusive

Too Faced - Sephora exclusive

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Collection is also in Malaysia already - selling for RM149

 This has been in my wishlist ever since I saw them in one of the beauty blogs in overseas and when I checked them out in Sephora.  Too Faced Something About Berry is absolutely a beauty! 

I tried them on my cheek and the colour pay off is beautiful.. and I'm sold! I am definitely going to get this but just not now as I'm saving for my Boracay trip which is another 2 weeks to go.. So maybe would get this when I'm back! Wait for me baby! 

p/s: I remembered the price was RM85 when I took the pictures but last week when I was in Sephora Starhill the price was changed to RM99, I wondered why...?

Spotted celebrity Patricia Knudsenwho was the emcee for the opening was having a touch up using Sephora products. 

This Oscar Blandi Root Touch up & Highlighter Pen (RM96) caught my eyes . I read that this is basically works as an instant touch up for your hair root.  

Patricia K decided to try on my hair root, yes I know I shall be colouring my head soon but just too busy to visit the soon! 

Looking at the small tube & mini comb that it comes with, I think this is on-the-go hair touch up tube especially for people who are in the look out for their grey hair, so that they can immediately touch up the particular strand of hair on the spot. 

I was wearing Dorothy Perkins Blue & White Striped dress to the opening and when I took the picture I realised, my dress matched the Sephora's Black & White strip logo. Also found out the girl on the right who was photobombing my picture is wearing stripes shirt too! What a coincidence! . 

Guess what I bought? 

I picked up Estee Lauder Optimizer Intensive Boosting Lotion (Even Skintone + Hydration) RM190 to try since I needed to stock up my toner. And I think this is a new packaging not sure it has new formula.
Sephora Malaysia in Nu Sentral is located at Lot 26, 27 and 28 at Concourse Level. Opening hour is from 10am to 10pm.

Note : Do you know you could apply for Sephora White Member Card for Free with any purchase to enjoy lots of promotions and benefits? Remember last year my birthday Sephora sent an email asking me to redeem my birthday gift which is a Sephora mini eyeshadow palette which is great for travelling.

TIPS : Recyle your chipping nails colour and gives a fresh new design!

Hey lovely people, are you having your Monday Blue! Let me cheer you up by sharing my tips on how to recyle your chipping nails colour and gives a fresh new design! 

I guess everyone loves it when nail polish looked pretty & nail when it was it first applied right? So after a week or two (depends how well you take care of your nails), the nails colour at the tip of our nails usually began to chipped and looked really ugly. And that's usually a signal of us to visit the salon or DIY ourselves to remove it & re-applying it with a new colour. Don't you think is a waste of money & time sometimes?

Instead of the hassle of removing & applying a total new colour...I have my way of keeping the existing nail colour even when the tip of the nail colour has chipped. And it save your time & pocket money too! 

Recycling the base colour of the nail colour & give a touch up!

So after a week more or so when my nail polish started to chipped instead of using the same nail colour to fill it up (which is boring) , I used a different colour and give my nail a fresh new design re-cycling the same colour base which I applied a week ago :) Rather than the tedious waiting period, applying at the tip nail only takes very little time!

I applied Max Factor Sunset Glossfinity Sunset Orange (if not mistaken RM22/10ml) and this is one my favourite colour from my stash because I could never go wrong with this! This bright & pigmented orange colour makes me happy.... as my fingers looked fair & it is so easy to apply! Not only it dried up pretty fast, the colour stays really glossy for more than 10 days (more than what it promised!) - longer when I applied top coat on this! 

So when tip of the nails started chipping & looked ugly, I applied Ciate Paint Pots in Peppermint (RM52). I feel in love with the colour at the first sight, it is fresh mint green (this colour remind me of tiffany blue). 

Instead of applying it like french manicure drawing a line across, I created the melting nail effect to give a little bit design to my nails!

To make sure your nail colour stay longer (double longer for the base colour!) don't forget to apply top coat on top of that! I tried Butter London P.D Quick Topcoat (RM64 for 17.5ml) at Sephora and I'm sold! Dried up amazingly fast & my nail is so glossy and pretty until today... super amazing and better than OPI or Essie ones! I am gonna get this when my top coat at home runs out!  

Seriously it is really easy to do & need not much skill...Best of all, your friends might be thinking you just did your new nails design when in fact you just recycle your base nail colour & give your nails a new face lif by giving a little bit touch up !

Saving your time, money & effort too :)

Try them today! 

Note: Ciate , Butter London nail polish is available in Sephora Malaysia. As for Max Factor Glossfinity, it should be available at all Max Factor counters.
