While rooting around in Watsons and Boots in Bangkok the past 2 days, I came across some unfamiliar products by Maybelline, L’Oreal and Ponds that caught my interest.
Maybelline AngelFit Double Perfector – Concealer & Highlighter
I was intrigued by this product under the Maybelline AngelFit line. AngelFit appears to be an Asia exclusive line and I’ve thus far been quite impressed by most of the products under this.
The new one is Angelfit Double Perfector, which is a dual-ended tube containing a concealer and highlighter. The Concealer has a sponge tip applicator while the highlighter has a brush applicator. I dithered for a long time whether to buy it but decided not to because it came in only 3 shades and the concealer in the lightest 02 shade was a little too dark and yellow for me. The highlighter is a iridescent pink tone that promises to work decently well. I hope it comes in soon and that I find a colour match! It was about THB320+ (approx RM32+). Update: News is, its not coming into Malaysia. Not sure why but we’ll see eh?
L’Oreal True Match Makeup Base
I’m not sure if we have this one here in Malaysia but I don’t seem to recall it. Perhaps I’ve been sleeping 🙂 Do remind me if its available yeah? Its a makeup base or primer under the L’Oreal True Match line. There are 2 formula – Smooth Up and Moist Up. Smooth Up as the name implies gives you a smooth finish and covers up pores while Moist Up adds moisture and should be for dry skin.
They both felt nice on my skin, sinking in without discernable colour and without feeling sticky. Definitely worth taking a look at.
Update: Available in Malaysia at L’Oreal counters in Department stores
Ponds Age Miracle Skincare Line
Again, I’m not sure if we have this here because I haven’t been paying attention much to Pond’s. The bright red colour of the Age Miracle line however caught my attention in Boots pharmacy.
I wonder why companies use Red for anti-aging or anything “age” related. L’Oreal uses red in their Revita-lift line as does Garnier. It must be something psychological. This one however, made me think of SK-II for some reason. Was tempted to try since they were on Buy 2 Free 1 but decided I have too much to be able to do this justice. Still, it does look rather more luxurious than the price belies 🙂
Have you tried either of the above 3 products? They might be available where you are so it would be nice to hear some thoughts if you have.
