If you’ve come by my blog through the Her World magazine July 2012 issue (Malaysia edition), I bid you welcome 🙂
Yes, its one of those absolutely thrilling moments for me, personally because I’m all narcissistic that way 😉 But for anyone who remembered my trumpeting about being one of the judges of the Her World Beauty Awards 2012, its OUT! 😀 😀
Its just 1 page so no need to get all excited lol… I’ve got a shot of the brief interview (they didn’t publish my more irreverent answers which included “soap” as my pick for the best beauty product invented! I think its too far out 😛 ) So if you’d like to see what my biggest beauty pet peeve is, or my view on the best beauty trend invented, here it is with a small behind the scenes look 😉
Here’s some of the questions posed and my answers 🙂 I wasn’t aware I was representing the voice of the people. I hope I got it right somehow 😛 Oh and I love that they gave me red lipstick for the photoshoot 😀
I do have one small correction to the introduction. Blogging about beauty and mywomenstuff.com isn’t my job per se. I call it my “part time job” but it is not a job in the same way of a real job that pays the bills 🙂 If it was, I’d definitely update much more often (and inundate your mail box and rss readers hehe… ;)) But otherwise, they got the rest of it right – you all do appreciate anything to do with beauty right? 😀
I didn’t manage to have someone with me this time to take behind the scenes shots during the photoshoot which was a lot of fun, so I’ll just leave you with one small one.
I did have to go through most of the nominated products, some in sample sizes, some in full sizes and had some friends be my guinea pigs. It was a daunting task as I only had something like 3 weeks to make my picks. Happily though, I did see that many of my favourites won in their respective categories, and these are products I’d already been using and loving 🙂 A list of the Her World Beauty Awards 2012 winners are here.
Amongst the winners (and my personal picks) were:-
- Liquid foundation: Shiseido Perfect Refining liquid foundation
- Eyeshadows: Dior 5 Couleurs eyeshadow palette
- Lipsticks: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet
- Toners: Sothy’s [W+] Preparative Lotion
- Whitening Moisturisers:Clarins Whitening Velvet Emulsion
- Hand Treatment : Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream
- Spot Correctors :Shiseido White Lucent Intensive Spot Targeting Serum +
- Facial Spray :Melvita Floral Water
- Sun Care:Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk SPF50
I’m incredibly thankful to everyone at Her World who allowed me to represent the people – beats being a boring Member of Parliament and having to look at filling potholes and unclogging drains, for sure! 😉
It was fun, I had a great experience and I thank you for reading my rambling 🙂

Aww thanks so much Lyn! 😀 The hair’s been cut even shorter now (and I think they made me look like I was wearing a helmet!) LOL
You rock red lips! I think you look like an air stewardess, always polished and personable. It must have been an awesome experience and a milestone in your blogging career, be it full or part!
Paris B says
Aww thanks so much for the compliment! I’m not all that nice or patient or unflappable as an air stewardess should be but I to try to at least look polished – important to put a good face forward at work don’t you agree? At least even if I botch up, I look good doing it haha! 😀 It was great fun and definitely a proud moment for me. Thank you for sharing in it 😀
