I received an email from Coach today announcing the launch of the new Ergo bag collection. A while ago, I wrote about being taken in with the Coach Ergo shoulder bags. The ones I was looking at were these:-
As far as I know, the Coach Ergo hobo is one of Coach’s classics, which is the first bag on the left. The other 2 are relatively new in the collection.
To boost the Ergo stable, Coach has come up with even more designs and colours. Continue Reading ►
I saw this Lunasol ad in a local magazine a couple of days ago, and I knew I had to spread the word.
You can now get a Lunasol Full Glamour Lips lipstick for only RM48 if you bring along any old lipstick to the counter. Lunasol lipsticks usually retail for RM88 each and you can just about get a Revlon lipstick at RM48 so why not try out Lunasol?
I was at a Kanebo counter at Lot 10 Isetan yesterday and can vouch for the credibility of this promotion. I did not buy any though as I did not have a spare lipstick on me and the available colours are limited. Still, if you do find a colour that suits you, this might be worth a look. Promotion is available while stocks last.
I’ve never tried the Full Glamour lipstick, but you can read my review on the Lunasol Intellectual Lips lipstick.
I’m late for Earth Day which was yesterday 22 April 2008 but hey, better late than never I say! My highlight is EcoTools makeup brushes. I’m not the most ecologically friendly person but heck! I’m sold on these makeup brushes!
I first saw them on a Google ad (whoever said these ads were of no use?) and then, read some reviews about them. EcoTools (or ecoTOOLS as per their logo) makeup brushes are made from natural and recycled materials and the bristles are cruelty free.
Essentially, the handle is made from bamboo, the ferrule (that’s the metal part) is made from recycled aluminium and the bristles are made from synthetic taklon fibre and are therefore 100% cruelty free.
The reviews I’ve been reading have sung nothing but praises for these Eco Tool makeup brushes. Users say that they do the work well, and are even comparable to high end department store brand brushes and the brush heads are very soft.
Further, they are cheap. Retail prices range from US$19.49 for the set to about US$10 for the powder brush and US$5 for the eyeshadow brush. Apparently, there are even discounts off these already cheap prices sometimes.
Now for the clincher. They are only sold at USA drugstores!! Waahhh!! I want them! Does anyone know where I can get these online (that ship outside of the USA)?
Update: Ecotools brushes are now available in Malaysia.
I haven’t been using my Vitamin E as an intensive moisturiser for a while and I think I should get back to using it at least once a week. Its one of those things you forget if you don’t make it routine.
Anyway, I’ve since found another use for my Colonial Dames Vitamin E oil, which is as a lip treatment.
I’ve found my lips drying out during the day due mainly to sitting in an air-conditioned office the whole day. Then, it doesn’t help that at night, the air-conditioning is on too.
So, every night, before I sleep, I’ll squeeze out a tiny pump of thick Vitamin E oil and liberally slather it on my lips. The next morning, I wake up to plump soft supple lips. I kid you not!
I don’t use this in the day because I’ve got lipstick or gloss on. However, on weekends, I sometimes apply some during the day too. Its thick and goopy but sinks into the lips after a while. I like that there is no smell or taste so it doesn’t bug me one bit.
Works a million times better than Khiel’s lip balm or any lip balm for that matter, and I only wish I could find pure Vitamin E in a tube so I can carry it on the go! Try it. You won’t look back.
Note: Some people have reported allergies to pure Vitamin E where their lips peel. I’m not sure what causes it but do be careful if you aren’t sure.
