Whip Hair Color from Hoyu
COLOURING your hair doesn’t have to be a chore. Beautylabo Whip Hair Color from Hoyu comes in a smooth non-drip formula that uses an innovative powder technology, which contains a lot of water.
The colour pigments in the powder stay in neat rows near the edge of the cortex, giving the hair an even reflection, making it more shiny and vibrant.
The colour between newly grown and already-coloured hair blends evenly. The product also contains illuminating and smoothing ingredients such as silicone oil and catinised polymer.
The whip formula ensures a good and even coverage so DIY hair colouring is made even easier and more convenient.
Just pour the colour powder into the provided container and add the liquid developer. Shake it so that it comes out perfectly whipped, after which you can use your hands (with gloves) to apply it on your hair.
An “After Color Treatment” is provided. It contains tartaric acid to prevent hair from damage by neutralising alkaline agents left in the hair.
It also prevents hair from dryness, and keeps it shiny and smooth. There is a variety of colours to choose from ranging from French Chocolat to Candy Pink.
Available at selected Guardian and Watsons stores. Price: RM32.90.
Burning with love
Love has many facets and Nine West has chosen to highlight fury in its newest fragrance.
Known for its quality shoes, the brand also carries other fashion accessories like handbags, sunglasses, eyewear, jewellery and sportswear.
The signature scent is touted to be the icon of fatal attraction, whereby the woman is passionate and sexy, with personality, attitude, temper and flair.
The vibrant top note carries rose bud firnat, mimosa petals absolute, juicy mandarin and red berries pulp. The heart note is passionate, ignited with Tiare Tahiti NaturePrint, jasmine sambac firabs and sandalwood. Fury ends on a base of orris flower, sensual musk, wood and amber.
Prices range from RM107(30ml) to RM199(100ml). Available at Nine West outlets and selected department stores.
Water is the essence of life. No wonder skincare brand Swiss line has turned its attention to a water shock! The new range called Water Shock consists of five products: The Comforting Emulsion Cleanser for Face & Eyes, Refreshing Foam Cleanser, Soothing Lotion, Purifying Toner and Bi-Phase Eye Make-up Remover for Eyes & Lips.
The Alpine “Wild Water”, filled with beneficial minerals for the skin, is the key ingredient in the formula. Obtained from the foothills of the Alps in Unesco’s Biosphere Reserve “Entlebuch”, the water has a high content in gold, and is very rich in calcium and magnesium.
As such, the Alpine “Wild Water” is touted to nourish the skin with vital nutrients. The range also has watercress, known for its purifying and detoxify effects on the skin. Each of the products also contain a unique botanical ingredient sourced from five different continents.
The Baobab tree from Australia, rich in bio-nutrients, helps boost the skin’s essential functions, provides a tightening effect and increases the skin’s water retention capacity. Lychee has a high concentration of vitamin C for brightening and proteolytic enzymes for stimulating natural exfoliation. Prickly pear soothes, reduces redness and shields the skin from external aggressors. White nettle is a natural antibiotic and anti-fungal agent, while the Brazil nut nourishes fragile eye lashes.
Prices range from RM168 to RM198. Available at over 50 Cheerful Beautique member beauty salons nationwide.
For every man
There isn’t just one Gaultier man. There are men, of different ages, masculine-feminine, half lout/half nice guy, naughty or refined, but always with a strong personality. For all these men, Jean Paul Gaultier has created Kokorico.
The noses, Olivier Cresp and Annick Menardo, came up with a generous, sensual, yet electric perfume. There are hints of cedar, patchouli and vetiver. To these, a dissonance is added to create a fragrance full of chic and aristocratic cheek, meshed with the cocoa bean and fig leaf, brought into harmony with woods.
Kokorico comes in EDT and deodorant versions. Prices range from RM100 to RM220. Available at leading department stores.
