[Tried & Tested] It's The Peri Tint!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Korean cosmetics have really been getting more and more popular with the KPOP scene, so here's introducing the latest from Peripera, their latest 3 Lip Tint series in 8 exciting new shades!

Peripera have always been packaged and sold as the fresh, bright, stylish beauty line that I adore as you all know I'm always about colours! Dressed in illustrations created by Korean pop artist Mari Kim, whose artwork also appeared in a 2NE1 music video, these lip tints are definitely a delight to look at. I received 2 of the products - Tint Marker (Orange Stain 2) and Tint Crayon (Fruity Mint 3).

The Tint Market works like a marker you would use on the board. It's easy to apply and helps to outline the lips with the fine end. The colour is enough with one application and I like that it doesn't fade off that easily. Formulated with Vitamin E, peach and orange water, it isn’t creamy or glossy and has a lovely dewy shine.
At first, when I opened the package, I was shocked to find such extreme colours. Bright Orange and a Minty Green for lips? Wow!

The Tint Crayon is extremely moisturising with it's almond and jojoba oil. I brought it with me on my overseas trip and it kept my lips looking supple and softer looking. 

But when I tried it on my hands, I have to say I fell in love with them, especially the Tint Crayon. It turned pink with the warmth of my hand and it was so glossy and moisturizing. In fact, both products go well to create the latest makeup trend - "Bitten Lips".

I simply applied the Tint Crayon all over my lips and had the Tint Marker on the inner parts of my lips, creating that ombre fading look. It makes my lips so much softer and kissable and with this look, my lips look even more prominent and fuller as though I had some lip plumping gloss on.

These 2 babies retail at S$14.90 and are exclusively available at Watsons.
Have fun!

Adidas Expects To Achieve New Record Sales Of € 2 Billion In Football In 2014

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Adidas expects to achieve new record sales of € 2 billion in the football category in 2014, the company announced today. “The FIFA World CupTM is the perfect stage to showcase our company, our brands and our products. adidas is the clear no. 1 in football globally – in terms of sales, innovative power and brand visibility. Through the World Cup we will once again underline our leading position and share our passion for the game with fans around the world,” commented Herbert Hainer, CEO of the adidas Group.
As the Official Sponsor, Supplier and Licensee of the 2014 FIFA World CupTM, adidas will again supply the Official Ball of the tournament and equip officials, referees, volunteers and ball kids.
Starting in the second half of 2013, adidas will be launching a constant stream of new and innovative football products for the World Cup. “We will use the World Cup to prove our great football expertise and to show fans the technological know-how and creativity that adidas consistently delivers at the cutting edge of football, again underlining our leadership in innovation. We create technologies that help players and teams unlock their potential, building products that are the very best for the athletes. For the World Cup, adidas will again be one step ahead,” explained Markus Baumann, Senior Vice President adidas Football.
In Latin America, the adidas Group has performed extraordinarily well over the past decade – driven by the adidas brand, where sales have grown at strong double-digit rates every year since 2002. With the Confederations Cup and the World Cup creating another strong push, adidas expects continuous and solid double-digit sales growth in Latin America in the years to come.

At the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup, four out of eight teams are equipped by adidas: the World and European Champion Spain, Asian Champion Japan, CONCACAF Champion Mexico and the 2013 Africa Cup winner Nigeria. Japan was also the very first team to qualify the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil. 
While celebrating with fans on the ground in Brazil in 2014, adidas will also export the excitement surrounding the World Cup to football fans all around the globe, leveraging point-of-sale and digital communication with a strong focus on social media.

[What's New] It's Time For The All New Tsubaki

| |
Hi Huneybees,

I came back from my Thailand trip and Cheryl was so sweet to extend an invitation to bring me along to the launch of the all new Tsubaki hair product range. Just what I need! I want to look like those Japanese models on the poster - Mizuhara Kiko (Fashion Model/Actress), Kojima Haruna (Member of AKB48), Ebihara Yuri (Fashion Model/TV Personality) and Anne (Fashion Model/Musician/Writer/Radio DJ).

About Tsubaki

  • Launched in 2006
  • Leading hair care market in Japan
  • Record total number of shipments of over 270 million units

I was dressed for the theme (Yellow, Red and White) to suit their range of hair products and upon arriving, I was asked to sign off my hair woes. Being the perfectionist Virgo, I am tough and strict when it comes to beauty, I literally picked everything as I wanted the perfect hair.... (Dull looking hair, dry and brittle hair, fine hair, itchy and/or sensitive scalp, hair lacks shine and frizzy ends).
There was also several activities going on before the presentation started. One was a Polaroid taking and designing section, memory games for some lovely prizes as well as personal illustrations by 2 talented artists.
Artists - Sharon Yang Ge and Teresa Lim

Cheryl and I both got our portraits done by Sharon and that really made me missed painting. I began picking up the brushes again on my next trip overseas. But I'll leave it for the next blog post...

Ok. So now it's time to present the leading stars...

For the new range of Tsubaki Hair products, they are divided into 3 categories: In red packaging - Shining (For silky manageable hair with satiny smooth texture), in white packaging - Damage Care (Deeply repairs dry and brittle hair for silky smoothness from the roots to the ends) and in yellow packaging - Head Spa (For lustrously resilient hair with volume from the roots).

For all ranges:
  • New packaging keeps the original shape and features a softer design
  • The 500ml bottle features a shrink-wrap outer package that is easily torn off
  • They contain Arginine, a melanin holes repair ingredient
  • Contains a UV protective ingredient 
  • Contains Camellia Oil (which is Tsubaki in Japanese *It's the brand, of course it has to be in there!*)

Shining Range

Damage Care Range
Head Spa Range

The full range will be available at Watsons exclusively from 4 July 2013 and here's the price of the various items...

  • Shining Shampoo / Conditioner: $17.90 (550ml), $8.90 (220ml)
  • Shining Treatment: $15.90 (200g)
  • Shining Mask: $19.90 (180g)

I brought home the Shining Range and I can't wait to get started on the new Tsubaki range for that silky hair, like those of Kojima Haruna. Kireii ne ~   ✿♥‿♥✿

Since the media launch, I've been waiting in excitement for the opening. Too bad I couldn't make it as I was overseas, but it was great that Isabelle went on my behalf and provided the photos (together with media photos) for this blog post...

At the event, there was a fashion show to showcase the apparels from the in-house brands - izzue, b + a b, 5cm, tout a coup, fingercroxx and Venilla Suite, as well as three imported Japanese brands, namely as

Within a minute, the photo is printed out for them to take home as a keepsake.

I Want To Catch Johnny Depp In The Lone Ranger!

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Yipee! Jerry Bruckheimer and his team as well as Disney is back with another thrilling adventure film - The Lone Ranger!

Starring none other than JOHNNY DEPP, not a “savvy-ing” pirate this time but a Native American spiritual warrior, Tonto, who recounts the untold tales that transformed a man of the law into a legend of justice, Joh Reid aka LONE RANGER, enacted by ARMIE HAMMER.

Johnny Depp is my forever man of my dreams. I would watch any movie that stars him without fail and I can't wait for Lone Ranger. He has this dark sense of humour and all those that have seen him on Pirates would know what I mean.
He seems to sell any character that he is playing and this time with a minimum English speaking Indian, I bet there's gona be some "language jokes" from him too. I am super excited and do hope to be able to catch him on the big movie screen again...
The Lone Ranger also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter, and is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski

Catch Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” in Singapore cinemas this 4 July 2013! For more updates, like the Official Walt Disney Studios Singapore Facebook Page, follow@disneystudiosSG and subscribe to the Official Disney Studios Singapore YouTube Channel!
