Review : Kate Spring/Summer Collection 2013 ; Goldish Eyes Collection with 24k Real Gold!

Last week I attended Kate Makeup Workshop in Pavilion and one of the highlight of the event is the latest Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. 

It was conducted in Platinum Room, Level 7, Seventh Heaven, Pavilion KL.

Kate Malaysia invited Mikiya Hirai is a Japanese Makeup Artist to conduct the workshop.

Lucky we got translator :)

Isabelle was the model for the makeup demonstration. This is her BEFORE picture.

Below are the products that Mr. Mikiya used on Isabelle during the makeup demonstration. He would be creating Day & Night look.

Mr. Mikiya used Freshel Whitening UV Gel (RM67) after he removed Isabelle's face. According to Mr. Mikiya, this Freshel UV Whitening has 5 functions i.e Lotion, Essence, Emulsion, Cream and UV Makeup Base. Since it has SPH 26 PA++, it can be used in the morning only. For night, use Whitening Gel instead.

Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover (RM59) , this is something new to me. It's a BB Cream at the same can work to help pore cover. I really like this because I do think my pores looked smaller and face is smoother after using this! Glad to find that the shade is alright on me too :D

After that Mr. Mikiya used Kate Powderless Liquid for Cover (RM79). I remembered Mr Mikaya was saying the liquid foundation will turn into powder in 15 seconds and surely it really turn into powder when I applied on my skin! No need to use loose powder after using this :D I quite like how smooth it feels on my skin :) 

Mr. Mikiya then used Kate Cover Concealer for Cover on Isabella, the texture is pretty creamy, well this is not my type of favourite texture for concealer. 

I tried Kate Eye Shadow Base for the first time, although this is cream in texture...I only need to use a little bit and I love how it smoothen out the creases on my eye lids and actually help to enhance the pigmentation of the eye shadow! 

Let's check out the highlight of the workshop, which is the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. I remembered Mr Mikiya told us that in this Goldish Eyes Collection, each palette contains  of two unique gold pearl powders ; i.e Real Gold Pearl, a pure gold pearl powder with 0.1% 24k REAL gold, and Nuance Gold Pearl, a bright pearl powder with a hint of gold. Yes you read it correctly, REAL GOLD... how luxury is it to apply real gold on eyes right... !

There are a total of 4 Goldish Eyes palettes and each palette, you can see the word "GOLD" is embedded on top of the eyeshadows , which means those 2 colours have "real gold" in it. 

Below are the swatch for the Goldish Eyes Collection under the Kate Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. Each priced at RM59.
GD-1 is my personal favourite, I like the overall combination of colours of gold, brown and dark brown. 

Overall the collection colours looked very natural and with the goldish shimmer it would give a glamorous and sophisticated finishing! And these kinda of natural colour are really easy to apply & suit all skin tone. However I do think the eyeshadow texture is quite powdery to apply and colour looked really light in reality.. and in order to let the colour looked more pigmented, the eyeshadow base is definitely a must here.

This Kate Shiny Eyelid Liner is part of the  new launch in the Spring/Summer Collection 2013 too! Very easy to use & the shine is not too overwhelming. Perfect to use at the lower eyelid to make the eyes looked more dolly!

Kate also have Mascara base, Volume Gel Mascara & New Lash Extension Mascara (which is the middle one) RM59. I heard that the curved fibers can give 5mm lenghtening effect to our existing lash! 

Others Kate products that Mr Mikiya used on Isabelle.

The day look at Mr Mikiya created on Isabelle 

The night look (party) version. 

For night look, Mr Mikiya said shading is important to make the face feature looked sharp. He showed that the shading stars from the cheek bone all the way up to the side forehead. 

And now is my turn to try on the makeup! 

Naked face - a compulsory Before picture

p/s: Got to take with flash because the light in the room is quite dim :(

Well I followed exactly the tutorial in the booklet given in creating the Goldish Eyes using GD-1 palette.

My after picture

How do you like my makeover which I did on myself :D 

 Close up on the eyes makeup I did. The goldish shimmer is fine and shimmering and it must be because of the pure gold ingredients in it I think

 Look, can you see the BLING shimmering on my eyes!  

Must be the gold bling bling I have on my eyes that brings me luck..because during the workshop I won a set of Kate Goldish after answering correctly during the Q&A session! Yay!

 A picture of myself with Mr. Mikiya Hirai. He was really friendly and keep checking on my makeup when I was doing mine. And he nodded and said... good ! *happy* 

Me & Farah Hany, one of readers whom I invited along to the event...I knew her few years back and now she is now a web designer in Nuffnang office :D 

Looking at my picture, I quite like the Kanebo Freshel Mineral BB Cream Pore Cover & Powderless Liquid for Cover because my face looked pretty flawless & fresh here! 

So what is your favourite pick from the Kate Spring/Summer Collection 2013?

Himalaya - My Hair My Mane Woe Workshop

Have any of you heard of Himalaya brand before ? It is a brand that hails from India and has been in Malaysia (first flagship store in Suria KLCC) since the year 2006. And I remembered when I saw them at the Watsons, I was suprised to see their price was very affordable even it is 100% natural. I have tried a few face & body products before when they first launched here few years ago.

And when I was invited to join Himalaya My Hair My Mane Woe Workshop I was thrilled because it is a hands-on and I am getting a hair pampering session from A Cut Above Academy using Himalaya products !

So I started with a hair analysis session with Yvonne.

TO MY HORROR, I was diagnosed with having hair fall problem. Yvonne said that someone who has a healthy scalp would have at least 3 to 5 hairs per follicle. But looking at my scanning result especially the front part of my head, I have 1-2 only per follicle.. and the distance between each hair follicle is quite far.

And this is my first time I came know to know I have serious hair fall problem :((

Then Yvonne recommended a range of products for my hair scalp condition. And best of all I get to bring back all these 4 products to try and should be used in this order

1) Himalaya Revitasing Hair Oil
Massaging of hair & scalp with a proper nutrient hair oil gives additional nutrition to the scalp and prevents hair loss. Massaging also increases the blood circulation in the scalp & this keeps the hair roots strong. Revitalizing Hair Oil is a non-sticky oil which nourishes & promotes hair growth.
Direction to use : Massage the scalp gently with fingers in a circular motion, so that the oil gets absorbed into the scalp, gradually Leave for an hour or more before washing with an Himalaya Herbals cleansing shampoo

2) Himalaya Herbals Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo (2-in-1)
A breakthrough 2 in 1 formula that provides root nourishment and strengthens weakened hair. Conditions and improves hair texture to reduce hair fall due to breakage.

Direction to use : Gently massage shampoo into wet hair and scalp. Leave for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly

3) Himalaya's Detangler & Conditioner
Makes hair smooth, soft and tangle-free. It adds shine and luster to dry, rough and brittle hair. By moisturizing the hair scalp, it makes hair manageable and tangle-free.

Direction to use : Apply generously over wet scalp & hair after washing hair; leave for 2-minutes and rinse off.

4) Himalaya Protein Hair Cream
Nourishes your hair with Natural Proteins derived from ingredients like Wheatgerm and Chickpea. Indian Gooseberry and Thistles promote hair growth.

Direction to use : Massage gently on scalp in circular motion and best to apply during the day time.

I was also suggested to use this Himalaya Hair Revival Cream but did not get this product to try at home as they do not have this ready stock. So I bought this during my India trip last week (as one of my friends told me its so much cheaper there)

5) Himalaya Hair Revival Cream
Stimulates the Anagenic (Active) phase of hair growth cycle. Induces quick multiplication of hair fibre cells an help to improve tensile strength of hair and increases hair density. However do note that this Hair Loss Cream does not work in cases of Male Pattern Baldness (baldness due to genetic reasons).

Direction to use : This product is to be applied on our entire hair scalp, part by part. For best results, leave on overnight and wash it off by morning.

The hands on experience with Himalaya's hair products.

Here the stylist massage my scalp with Revitasing Hair Oil before the hair wash.

And after the hair wash I was given a good head and shoulder massage!!

Always remember to massage our hair scalp while shampooing or conditioning as it helps to stimulate our blood circulation which will also stimulate our hair to grow naturally.

Tips : I always comb through my hair either with my fingers or big comb while conditioning my hair so that when I rinse my hair it is already tangle free !

Then my hair was blow dry and style.

The end result !

My first feeling when the products used on my head is that Himalaya products smell very good!! And the products does not caused any sensitivity on my hair scalp.

The back view

Me with the 2 beautiful lady Cynthia & Yvonne from Himalaya :)

Let me show you the reality of my hair condition in close and whether the products work for my hair.

Not only my hair scalp is unhealthy, the visible problems that one can see is that I have dry and tangled hair.

Before & After using the range that was given to me

I must say that the Himalaya's Detangler & Conditioner is the star product here as it has smoothed my hair condition significantly. And best of all their products are all mild and smell so good !!!

Beside using the right hair products, it is important to use the right hair brush is important as well. This is my favourite hair brush from Acca Kappa Professional Pro Hair Brush made with Pure Boar Bristles which is designed to stimulate the scalp and polish the hair shaft.

A brief introduction of all the Himalaya hair products range

There are total of 5 ranges under Himalaya hair products and they have just recently revamp their packaging!

1) Anti Dandruff Range
2) Anti Hair Fall Range
3) Protein Conditioner Range
4) Protein Shampoo Range
5) Protein Shampoo (2-in-1)

Under each range which , there are few products which will give different result to your hair.

Anti Dandruff Range

Soothing & Moisturizing (2 in 1) / Volume & Bounce / Gentle Clean

Protein Shampoo Range

Volume & Bounce / Gentle Day Care / Extra Moisturizing

Protein Conditioner Range

Colour Protect / Softness & Shine / Repair & Regeneration

Anti Protein Shampoo (2 in 1), Anti Hair Fall Shampoo (2 in 1) and Protein Shampoo (2 in 1) Range

This is 2 in 1, i.e shampoo & conditioner in one bottle.

Have you people try any of the Himalaya hair products ? Do share your experience here with me !

I did mentioned to you earlier on that I did a "little haul" of Himalaya products during my Incredible India trip last week after I felt in love with the products that I was given to try !!

Check this out !!

Will try to do some reviews of the products here :)

I must say thank you to the good people in Himalaya who made me realised how serious is my hair fall problem and recommending the the 100% natural products for me to use :)
