Michelle Phan in Australia!

Another exciting news to my dear readers in Australia who are makeup junkies and for those who adore the #1 most subscribed female on Youtube, she is coming to the land down under, Australia! Yes, Michelle Phan is going to come! Let's thank Lancôme for giving us an opportunity of finally seeing her in person through counter appearances and a masterclass.

There are no clear details yet for the Sydney appearance but definitely follow or like Lancôme's Facebook page and Michelle Phan's Facebook page to keep updated for this awaited event. For those who are down in Melbourne, go and purchase a ticket for Michelle's makeup masterclass once it goes up for sale on Monday (16th July 2012) on the MYER site or MYER Bourke St. Melbourne's Lancôme counter. This could have been the perfect reason for me to go down to Melbourne but my classes start that week! (Boohoo!). Oh well!

Also keep your eyes out on Lancôme counters for the Australian market release of Michelle's Lancôme Glamour eyes kit that will also be out for sale on Monday (16th July 2012). 

Just another reason to be smiling throughout the rest of our 2012 winter! :-)



Topshop/Topman opening in Sydney on October 2012!

Oh my gosh! They have heard our plea! Topshop/Topman is finally opening in Sydney this October! The location will be just right in the Gowings Building (George cr Market street CBD), just right infront of MYER!

I first spotted it in the QVB-MYER tunnel; Gowings building is Topshop's confirmed location
If you would read the article here, other retail shops that we are dreaming of shopping at such as H&M, Uniqlo, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Forever21 (YIPEE!!!) are already scouting for their perfect space in Sydney's CBD. Isn't that something to celebrate for? Cheers to that!

PS: Start saving for our Spring 2012 splurging!

CK One cosmetics: official Australia launching event and meeting Jodie Boland

Hello everyone! Today, I bring you all a very interesting experience that I had yesterday. My sister, our dearest friend, myself, and two other ladies got the chance of having our makeup done by Jodie Boland, CK One's international makeup artist, and her CK One assistants (I completely forgot to take photos of myself though!) in the official Australia launch of the brand's new cosmetics range. Jodie is just so bubbly and friendly! She has this bursting energy that captivates people. It's very contagious. She is very talented and is very good at what she's doing, no wonder why she made it all the way to being the make up artist of CK One and tours the world to launch their products.

CK One cosmetics is pretty new in the Australian cosmetics market and their products are very versatile and so affordable. Yes, very affordable. Their Pure Colour liptsicks just costs AUD$35 each. Their products exude simplicity and minimal character while giving you the most out of your purchase. In addition, they are very travel friendly and did I mention versatility? Talk about being "all-in-one"! Their mascara works in 2 ways, volumising and lengthening, as it has a twist cap that totally alters the mascara's bristle formation. They also have a 3-in-one face makeup which is a solution of primer, foundation, and sunscreen. And, probably their best bet in multi-tasking, their Colour + Treat lip kit which has lip exfoliator, plumper, lipbalm, 2 lipstick shades, and lip gloss. If I would give another compliment to their products, it would be that they're very true to colour. I just admire how the lipstick shades (when applied to lips) appear to be in very similar hues as in stick, itself (if that makes sense), as well as their other products like blush-ons, lip glosses, foundations, nail polishes and to all of their entire range.
