"Be stunning for a steal" event

During this time of economic crisis, do you amend your budget for your beauty needs? I personally have been doing this since this year started. I believe I’ve became I am a wise shopper now =D. By saying “wise” I meant buying less expensive products with high quality.

The event I recently attended was just in perfect timing. My mission: Be stunning for a steal =)

When I arrived, I was gladly welcomed by Ms. Trisha Chua, Junior Product Manager of Maybelline, and was introduced to the Matrix hairstylist for a hair makeover.

The sides of my hair were curled by Jorge, one of the hairstylists for Matrix. The moment he sprayed something to my hair I asked immediately what was it because it smelled divine. He said he used the Matrix hairspray which is one of their best-sellers. I just cannot testify if the curls lasted with it because I tied my hair after the event. Read Roanne’s statement about it.

Next, I headed to the Garnier facial station for some skin pampering. Because I almost fell asleep, I wasn’t able to ask the lady what products she used on me but they’re so refreshing and the aroma was so good.

As soon as it was done, I hurriedly went to the Maybelline station for my makeup.

As usual I went for a natural makeup =D. Most of the products used on me were newly launched: Maybelline mineral makeup line, Cat eyes mascara, Eyestudio eyeshadow quad and Vivid smooth liner, WaterShine Collagen lipstick and Fruity Jelly lipgloss. More reviews to come =)

Lastly, I had no plans of getting the nail art anymore because of the queue. But Trisha was kind of enough to list my name while I was having my makeup done. I chose a bubblegummy-ish nail design by Nail Spa (Nail Spa is located at the 5th level of Shangri-la Mall). Look how cute it is:

Mine is the one on the left.

Roanne of all the vanity was there too so I was able to chat with her a little while we were having our nails done. =)

Beauty bloggers Nikki and Shen were also there. Got some souvenir from Fabfoto:

A gift from Nikki. Thank you so much sis!

And this is what I look like before I left =D

What can you say? I accomplished my mission right? hehe

Will post more reviews soon. Ciao!
