Yay! There’s nothing like a K-beauty event to start the year off. Since Laneige wants to share the secret of K-beauty with me, who am I to turn it down? It’s one kick in my derriere, pushing me one step closer to Kpop star-awesomeness. Bring on the matching girl group outfits~! heh.
Not one, but two Korean stars welcoming us to the event. Hello Hye Gyo and hello Joong Ki (yeahhh I’m on first-name basis with them hurhurhur). Well, cardboard standees are a pretty good life-sized representation anyways.
The Brand Manager of Laneige giving us an introduction about the new White Plus Renew Line, followed by Dr Shim (who was also present at the Sulwhasoo Evenfair Perfecting Cushion launch) who gave us more details about the research and science behind Laneige’s improved products.
Say hello to the new and improved Laneige White Plus Renew Line, this time with the innovative Melacrusher whitening technology to brighten your skin and provide 3-colour undertone care to balance the skin’s yellow, red and dark undertones. Simply put – skintone correction for optimum radiance and fairness.
This looked so much like candy that I really felt like munching on it. It’s the new White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack (comes in a box of 16 sachets of 3ml each, $42) which also contains the MelaCrusher technology. Notice how it looks like a white marshmallow floating in clear gel? It’s actually whitening capsule with hydro gel cream. It comes in single-use hygienic sachets, and can be stored in the fridge before usage for more optimal results. Just peel it open, mix it up thoroughly and apply it onto your face overnight. This Sleeping Pack is said to make your skin 2 tones brighter – I’ll try it out and see how it works!
Since it’s the start of 2014, we were asked to put down our Whitening Resolution for 2014. We also had our silhouettes cut – no prizes for guessing which is me. That’s right, I’m bun-head. Hat-girl is Alethea and Ponytail Girl is Maybeline .
I initially didn’t have my hair in a bun, but after I got my first silhouette, I felt that it looked kinda blahhh. It didn’t truly represent who I was, so I badgered the artist into re-cutting a new one. Heh.
Oh, and if you’re interested to know, my Whitening Resolution is to apply sunblock more religiously. I’ve been depending quite a fair bit on products with SPF factors, but I guess it’s about time I actually apply a sunblock product. Don’t judge meeeeee.
Laneige’s trainer Tina showing us how to achieve glowing K-pop star looks with the new Laneige BB cushion as well as other Laneige makeup products. Isn’t she a SYT? Damn. I need to be that fresh and pretty too!
The new Laneige BB cushion now comes in five shades to suit Asian skin tones: #13 True Beige, #21 Natural Beige, #23 Sand Beige, #31 Brown Beige and #33 Coffee. Retail price: SGD$59 (includes one extra refill). It now has 6-in-1 benefits (brightening, sun protection, moisturising, water-resistant, evening out the skintone, and soothing – your skin’s temperature drops by 4 degrees celsius!).
I’m in the midst of testing this out, so stay tuned for my review!
Now, I don’t usually reproduce press releases wholesale cos I think it’s just lazy blogging, but in this case, I think it makes more sense to plonk the entire table in cos it’s more self-explanatory. So here you go – the entire Laneige White Plus Renew Line of products, instructions on how to use it and how much they cost 😀
