GRANDIÔSE LINER - Revolutionary Eyeliner launching on 15 August 2016

The delectable Penélope Cruz gazes through the lens of Alexi Lubomirski, eyes fringed with Grandiôse liner. The intense line follows the curve of her wide-brimmed hat for ultimate sophistication

One of the trickiest part of doing applying make up for most of us gals would be getting the eyeliner right. It takes years of experience to perfect and sometimes it could still go wrong. I've had my fair share of horror stories that ended in a mental meltdown all because of eyeliner! Mind you, I was in my early 20s then and things have changed. It's pretty hilarious now when I look back and see how something as menial as eyeliner could have dampened my day!

Lancôme Grandiôse Liner - exceptionally fine tip of 0.2mm

That said, I'm looking forward to the launch of the Lancôme Grandiôse Liner on 15 August 2016

This cutting edge liner is said to be inspired by the best kept secret techniques of make-up artists: deliberately angled brushes for enhanced flexibility and creativity and more beautiful eyes.

Physical Attributes
  • 35-degree curve in the handle (which can be used straight as well)
  • Dense, opaque and intensely matte formula
  • Exceptionally fine tip (just 0.2 mm)

It's Promise
  • unlimited dexterity
  • intense finish
  • precision and flexibility 

35 degree curved angle is a game changer! Lisa Eldridge, Lancôme’s Make-up Creative Director, used her expertise and knowledge to determine the exact angle 


* Here is what some of the women who tested the Grandiôse Liner had to say:
96% said it dried quickly
95% said it was easy to hold
95% said the tip was flexible
91.1% said it traced a thin line
90.1% felt it offered easier access to the root of the lashes
88.1% said it glided smoothly and easily over the skin during application
86.1% said it was easy to apply
85.1% felt it allowed easier control of the line during application
94.1% felt it boosted their eyes
90.1% thought the colour effect was intense

*Tested on 101 women aged 20–45 in France who use liquid eyeliner daily or who agreed to use it on the eyelids at least once a day for seven days


Available colours:
  • carbon black
  • sapphire blue
  • deep brown
Check Colours on Lancôme UK Website (at time of publishing this post, the product is not yet available in Malaysia)

Finish:
matte

Smudge Proof:
Unaffected by moisture and sebum

Quick Dry:
Yes

As I was adding in the pictures for this post i realised I have a pic similar to Penelope's sans the eyeliner so I just had to share it lol.


Although Grandiôse Liner has exceptional hold it is said to be incredibly simple to remove and washes away easily with hot water which I consider a plus point.

The Lancôme Grandiôse Liner is priced at RM115 and is available at all counters from 15th August 2016 throughout Malaysia. 

Lancôme is giving away free makeup services till 31st August 2016 to all my followers!

The Ghostbusters Adventure Live! at Lynton V. Harris Scream Park Sunway Lagoon

Bandar Sunway, 25 July 2016 – Ghosts and Ghouls took over Sunway Lagoon and only one ghost-busting foursome could put the sinister creatures to rest. Sunway Lagoon’s Lynton V. Harris Scream Park unveiled the first Ghostbusters attraction of its kind in the world, The Ghostbusters Adventure Live!

The Ghostbusters arrive to save the day!

Ghostbusters inclusion into the park marks the biggest annual investment to date since the launch of Scream Park some seven years ago. The attraction occupies the entire top level of Scream Park and takes visitors through a 20-minute harrowing journey through locations based on the relaunch of the movie.

Stay Puft - at the main entrance of Sunway Lagoon

“Sunway Lagoon is excited to have such an internationally acclaimed attraction such as Ghostbusters. At Sunway Lagoon we are constantly working to provide our guests with the latest and the best. The Ghostbusters Adventure-Live! provides park-goers and fans alike with a unique and interactive journey through the Ghostbusters world,” said Calvin Ho, Senior General Manager of Sunway Theme Parks.

Entrance to The Ghostbusters Adventure Live!

The good people of Sunway Lagoon graciously invited the media to an exclusive session where they made sure bloggers and members of the media were thoroughly spooked. So, I decided to ask my husband on a date which I suppose worked out to be a good idea as I was holding him tight crushing his hands all the way.
You will sure be safe with a Ghostbuster around

The interesting part of this attraction is the interaction between the spookee and the spooker and a cast of live actors. Be well prepared for unexpected surprises and thrills. 

Make sure to get a shot with the Ecto-1 

After getting our tickets to Sunway Lagoon we were guided straight to the Scream Park entrance. The Scream park is one of the first things you see when you enter the theme park making it hard to miss. To our delight there was Sunway Lagoon's version of the Ecto-1 just outside the entrance and some of us had the chance to snap a picture with it.

Ghostbusters Live entrance at night 

Inside we were given instructions on what to do and what not to do. Pretty simple really. "Don't touch the ghosts. They will jump out, come near but they wont touch you. Remember, don't touch the ghosts." 

Slimer

Our journey started at Slimer's pad, filled with lots of Ghostbusters memorabilia that would surely thrill any fan. So, I would suggest that you watch the movie first to get a full experience though it's not necessary. We then reach the Aldridge Mansion – New York’s oldest private home and museum, where a handsome tour guide introduced us to the story of Gertrude Aldridge.


Getrude Aldridge's Library


No Ghosts

A detour took us to New York Subway’s Seward Street Station and we alighted to visit Old Zhu’s Chinese Restaurant, the new headquarters of the new all-female Ghostbusters. Rowan’s basement was next on the agenda, followed by the infamous Mercado Hotel, set in the iconic Times Square in New York, where our journey ends in a spooky, scary and slimy finale.


Boo!

Rowan's Hideout Basement at the Mercado Hotel


The journey is to be taken in single file so put the bravest of all in front. In our case it was my dear hubby. He seemed pretty cool throughout tho I did here some grown men screaming haha.


I ain't afraid of no ghosts!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Entertainment Company who are responsible for a long list of popular blockbuster themed attractions previously present inside Scream Park including Terminator, Night at The Museum, Prison Break LIVE!

Harris, Chairman & CEO The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company.

CocoZ.Kr - Dubbed the Ultimate Korean Hangout Spot in Malaysia

Have you caught the Korean bug yet? If you haven't then know that it will chase you down in some way. From their music to their food to fashion to their serials - Korean things carry a mark of quality and innovation. I mean, how many times have you reached out for some shiny bling and are willing to pay extra because it's made in Korea? There always seems to be a sense of trust.

Now, to add to the Korean fever, Sungai Wang Plaza introduces CocoZ.Kr a brand new Korean lifestyle experience, all the way from Seoul right into the heart of Kuala Lumpur!

CocoZ.Kr is an exciting integrated Korean lifestyle concept outlet that combines food and fashion and is strategically located at the main entrance of Sungei Wang Plaza. The outlet features the first overseas location of the famous Jongno Halmeoni Kalguksu restaurant and serves up its signature handmade knife-cut noodle soup. Perfected through generations and whetting appetites since 1988, the wheat flour noodles are served in a heavenly rich and fragrant seafood broth. CocoZ.Kr also offers bingsu, or a Korean shaved ice dessert, in a variety of flavours for a sweet finish to any meal. 


From Top Left Clockwise : The food order counter, the restaurant ambiance, freshly prepared noodles, a closer look at the noodles being prepared

During the launch I joked that bingsu was actually Korean ABC (Air Batu Campur) and I nearly opted out of having it. Luckily I only nearly opted out because although the concept is the same - shaved ice, I have never tried any ice offering nearly as exquisite as the Mango Bingsu that was served to me. It - was - heavenly! The ice was so fluffy and soft. If you could ever label ice as elegant, this was it! I know..such a strange word to describe ice, but for the lack of a better word this is how I interpreted it. Oh, I miss it already!

Aside from satisfying food cravings, CocoZ.Kr is a Korean fashion hub that has brought in the best-selling nail polish appliques of Incoco. If like me you suck at applying nail polish, have no time to wait for nail polish to dry or simply have a sudden event to go to you may consider dressing your nails in Incoco nail polish strips. Incoco nail polish strips have made a name in Korea and internationally, and for the first time, is now available in Malaysia. Made of 100% nail polish, Incoco nail polish strips combine three coatings of the base, colour and top layers into one easy-to-apply self-manicure with professional results. These strips come in over 200 designs and styles, require no dry time, and last up to 14 days. 

Clockwise from top left : Easy to apply nail appliques in interesting designs, the nail bar, the accessories section, unique Korean designs

Fashion lovers can complete their look with CocoZ.Kr’s Korean accessories that brings the latest fashion trends from the streets of Hongdae right into Malaysia. CocoZ.Kr accessories are carefully curated in limited numbers to ensure that each look can be uniquely tailored to suit every style and personality. Unfortunately they do not have accessories such  as shoes, hats and belts (asking for clothes is a bit too much for the size of the store so I won't do that).

CocoZ.Kr was officially launched with a fashion show that featured supermodels and former beauty queens showcasing each aspect of CocoZ.Kr, from food to fashion. The fashion show ended on a romantic high with a mock proposal that was received with cheers and well wishes. Among those present to witness the joyous occasion were Umie Aida, the CocoZ.Kr ambassador, Megan Tan, Yvonne Sim and Tuti of Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 4 fame my current favourite girl.

Clockwise from top left : Derrick Tan - Chairman of Sungai Wang Group, Ambassadors - Umie Aida & Tuti, Blogger friends E-Wen & Miera, the pretty emcee Nadia

“It is no secret that the world is paying attention and taking a liking to Asian culture, especially in terms of food and fashion. Korean culture is a trend that is still going strong and we are excited to introduce this brand new concept store to Malaysia and further build the hype around all things Korean,” said Derrick Tan, Chairman of Sungei Wang Group.

“I’ve always been interested in Korean culture and fashion, and CocoZ.Kr makes a perfect hangout spot for me between shoots,” said Umie Aida, actress and CocoZ.Kr ambassador. “Incoco Nails Strips, especially, make it so convenient for me to keep my nails in perfect condition even with my busy schedule.”

Accessories, Nail Appliques and food were displayed during the fashion show

During the launch, we had the opportunity to enjoy the full CocoZ.Kr experience and were treated to complimentary manicures using Incoco Nail Appliques. We were presented with a variety of dishes available in the menu including hand pulled noodles and the heavenly bingsu that I cant stop raving about.

Some of the food you can expect at the restaurant. Can you spot the handsome Mango Bingsu? (slurps)

“CocoZ.Kr is the headquarters for the ultimate Korean lifestyle experience but each product has its own brand value and identity,” Derrick said. “Moving forward, we look to expand each brand in various aspects. For example, Incoco nail products are now sold in Kimarie’s Kota Damansara and IOI Puchong branch, allowing their customers to get a complete beauty makeover from head to toe.”

Keeping price value in mind, CocoZ.Kr offers a scrumptious and authentic Korean set meal that includes a choice of drink and a plate of dumplings starting from just RM15.00.

[Fashion] Glitz and Glamour at Starhill Gallery Fashion Week SS16 Launch

On 6 April 2016, Starhill Gallery known for its high end fashion enticed it's exclusive guests with a glamorous launch of it's fashion week that started on 6 April till 9 April 2016.

Guests were treated to G.H Mumm Champagne and Absolut Hibiskus cocktails just because they deserve the best and nothing less. Among the fashionistas present were Diana Danielle, Marsha Milan Londoh, Sazzy Falak, Linora Low, Hunny Madu and Carey Ng.

I arrived early and parked at the convenient and safe Ladies Parking at the Indulge level and found my seat while I waited for my date for the night to arrive in her chauffeur driven car amidst the KL traffic! With the new exit to MEX highway in Seri Kembangan (ok so you kinda know where I live now..no stalking please :P) it takes me maximum 30 mins to reach the Golden Triangle, like door to door. Blessed be!

As soon as she arrived we went into a photo frenzy with selfies and OOTD shots. Yeah people nowdays aren't coy about it anymore..it's very normal. Really. it's not just something kawaii little Japanese girls do anymore. We got our pics printed out at the Wowgram booth once we uploaded it to instagram with the hashtag #shfwss16

Apparently there were handcrafted canapés prepared exclusively for the event by Shook! restaurant’s Executive Chef Richard Sawyer. It must have been damn good as I missed it! I also missed the exquisite chocolate sampling by Armani Dolci, and the complimentary nail service which included a hand massage, manicure and nail art design by BMIC Nail Spa Salon. However I did get to try the complimentary ice-cream by Inside Scoop.

My beautiful date Anne, my OOTD, waiting for the show, starstruck by JC Chee of Ola Bola fame

Any who, the party was hosted by one Emcee, Will Quah who was extraordinarily entertaining. I don't know how much they paid this guy but he was worth every penny. He had the posh crowd bawling over with laughter with his amazingly quick wit and cheeky humour.

Oh, Will Quah you funny man!

The show started with a very sultry dance performance by 3 ladies dressed in red with fire in their eyes and sure strong movements bringing in the Spring Summer heat.

Elnino heat yo!

Then it was time to enjoy the show! The fashion parade showcased Starhill Gallery's exclusive designer labels Debenhams, iKartini, Kenzo, Khoon Hooi, Alexander Mc Queen (I always tend to call Lightning McQueen Alexander McQueen and my son would give me a puzzled look), Mita Tam Style Studio, M Misoni and Valentino. 

Each brand had something different to offer from ready to wear daily looks, red carpet looks to updated retro fashion offerings.

Valentino - soft hues and material that created spirituality, sensuality that was subdued, sophisticated  and calm
Valentino

Kenzo - an unexpected mix of elements with bold graphics and a revived retro feel
Kenzo

McQueen by Alexander - versatile pieces in three main colours

McQueen by Alexander

M Missoni - clearly a circus theme. I don't mean that as a joke. Playful and upbeat prints were the name of the game to add fun to Spring / Summer.
M Missoni

Khoon Hooi - Inspired by a life painting of a meadow on black canvas, an abstract take on freedom and light for his collection. Definitely not for the faint hearted,
Khoon Hooi

iKartini - traditional yet contemporary Malaysian traditional fashion

Mita Tam Style Studio - light patterns and colourful floral dresses for both casual and formal style

Debenhams - a taste of British style. Cool, comfortable in tones of green and yellow

This year, Starhill Gallery raised the bar even higher by featuring Monique Collignon Couture Light 2016 : The Concious Collection. Collignon, has dressed the like of Guiliana Rancic, Carly Steel, Celinde Schoenmake, Becky Baeling-Lythgo and Carice van Houten. The collection is made entirely of recycled plastic bottles by Waste2Wear. I ignorantly expected to see something that still looked like bottles, but the garments showcased didn't look like they were related to plastic bottles in anyway!

An art installment in Nice, France - Not the Monique Collignon collection

The collection showcased on the runway is also on temporary exhibit at Starhill Gallery. I popped by after the show to checkout the garments up close. Nope. Doesn't look like plastic bottles to me! I was looking at one particular dress, when the sales assistant came and told me that it costs just RM65,000. Hmm...I then politely declined as I don't know what event I will be attending that's worth to wear a RM65,000 dress to....

Among the weeks line up to note was the Malaysian Designer's show on 8th April 2016 where the likes of Justin Yap, FIZIWOO, and AHNDE showcased their collection. 

Vice President of YTL Land & Development Berhad, Hotels & Properties, Joseph Yeoh said "Starhill Gallery epitomises fashion and our portfolio of the best fashion brands is constantly growing. Now in its sixth year of organising the Starhill Gallery Fashion Week, it gives us pleasure by creating a platform for aspiring talents in the fashion industry to be a part of the local and international fashion scenes.
