I ask this question in the title, because I haven’t and I wanted to get your input! :D
Last year, we were introduced to Julia Roberts as the face of Lancome, and the Virtuose Precious Cells mascara. At the time, I was told that in Asia, they were only bringing in Virtuose Precious Cells. Hypnose was only sold in the Western world as the drama and volume attached to the Hypnose mascara did not do well in Asia, as Asians preferred something for lengthening and curling the lashes, I was told.
Fast forward a year later and ta-da! Here we are – Hypnose Precious Cells mascara! So we Asians can have dramatic lashes with volume too! :D I haven’t tried it yet – I had mascara on my lashes already and I didn’t really need the extra drama. But there’s a reason why there is a photo behind the tube of mascara – a makeover and instant photo promo at Pavilion KL :) I also checked out a couple of Lancome products I’d like to hear your thoughts on, if you have tried them, cos I haven’t.
If you’d like to take a gander at the Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells mascara and perhaps get yourself a free eye makeup makeover or if you are just in the area of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur on July 18-24, 2011 and at a loose end, head down to the Concourse where you can check out the Lancome Loves Colors promotion area.
You can take a look at the new adorable Yayoi Kusama Juicy Tubes which are limited edition. Super cute packaging and a collector’s item in Japan, I’m told. There are also 2 new limited edition Ombre Absolue eyeshadow palettes (RM140) for summer – a soft pink and grey and a brown that are both extremely wearable. There is even a liner included, and a highlighter. I don’t own any of these palettes yet, but they have been out since last year. There are about 6 permanent colours and these 2 new limited edition ones. I got a quick touch up with the green palette… but you can’t quite see it can you? :P
Anyway, the first 40 people in a day to head down to Pavilion KL Concourse will get a free quick makeover and an instant photo. Once they have filled the quota, the free makeover will be available with every purchase of RM250 of Lancome products or RM300 of Jaspal clothing. Purchase RM500 worth of Lancome products and get a free starter kit, RM50 Jaspal voucher and a free makeover.
Oh and there’s one more product that caught my eye… as it were.
The Lancome UV Expert Bright Eyes Protecting & Illuminating BB Base with SPF50 PA+++ A BB base for the eye area? I haven’t tried this one but I swiped the tester on the back of my hand and it looks most intriguing. I wonder how this measures up to the Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator that I’m planning to take on a spin soon. They both seem to boast illuminating effects for the under eye area – a subject dear to my heart as yesterday’s post on the Dior Skinflash will attest to :)
So you know what to do if you are around Pavilion KL from July 18-24, 2011. But more importantly, if you have tried the Hypnose Precious Cells, Ombre Absolue eyeshadow palettes or the UV Expert Bright Eyes BB Base, holler in the comments! I want to know what you thought of them! :D
Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara retails at RM95, Ombre Absolue Eyeshadow palettes retail at RM140 each and the UV Expert Bright Eyes BB Base for the eye retails at RM125/15ml
