Happy Saturday Ladies!
This is the Easter weekend so to everyone celebrating, I wish you all Happy Easter! 😀
Here’s some quick bite-sized news on whats new in town and on the shelves.
Clinique SAYLI Counter at MidValley Megamall
You might have noticed this counter pop up at MidValley Megamall in the last month. Its a new concept in cosmetic shopping, where Clinique has opted to bring the counter to you so you can “Shop As You Like It” (SAYLI). At this open counter, you are welcome to browse the makeup and skincare unhindered by sales assistants , but if you need help, the SAs are there to help. I find it easier to browse colour makeup by myself, but I do prefer some assistance with skincare so this concept counter strikes a good balance.
I stopped by to pick up some items, and for once, I was not being tailed everywhere by the inquisitive SA, making unwelcome suggestions as to what I should or should not get. When I asked her opinion, she was helpful. Otherwise, her presence was unobtrusive. I think that was instrumental in my actually spending money there (to get a really nice gift with purchase ;)). I also noticed that in the 20 minutes I was there, at least 4 women stopped by, browsed, asked a few questions and left with purchases. I guess the concept does work!
Clinique Service As You Like It store is located at Lot No: FK-01 1st Floor, MidValley Megamall (in front of Giordano)
MAC Cosmetics Quite Cute Collection
I was invited to take a look at the MAC Quite Cute collection and was an hour late due to torrential rain and awful Friday traffic. Quite Cute is a collection of mostly pale pastel hues and bright pinks. A cursory glance told me nothing interested me. I was right, until the SA offered to try a blush on me, and she used Giggly, a pink mineralized blush with a sparkly purple heart embedded in the middle.
I must say Giggly is adorable in pan and on skin. Its a mid-toned pink with cool tones and did not seem overly shimmery on my skin. I liked the fresh pop of colour my cheeks. However, I was not too pleased with the rather powdery texture. I dithered for a bit as to whether to get it…. ok. I dithered A LOT, but left without picking it up 😛
MAC Quite Cute collection is limited edition and is available at all MAC stores and counters. No prices but the Mineralize blushes are RM100.
