Event: Glam Glow, By Terry and Annick Goutal at Escentials

As much as I’m a Ko’Ho, I’m also very interested in Western brands – I mean, you can’t place a geographical limitations on a beauty addict’s lust. That’s just not my (Gangnam) style. Heh. In any case, I was happy to head on down to Escentials at Paragon last week to get to know some of their brands better – By Terry, Annick Goutal and Glam Glow.

I arrived uncharacteristically early (at least 30 minutes), so I entertained myself by browsing their goodies. But wait – did I arrive early so that I could have time to browse? hurhurhur.

Escentials event6Meeting the Glam Glow family for the very first time despite the hype amongst my beauty editor / makeup artist friends.

From L-R: Glam Glow Youth Mud (in black), Glam Glow Super Mud (in white) and the newest to hit our shores in blue is Thirsty Mud, a leave-on/rinse-off sleeping pack for hydration and firming .

Here are By Terry’s summer colours for your viewing pleasure 😀

escentials-event12Ok, trust me when I say – they’re smudgeproof. I mean, I rubbed it really vigourously and it wouldn’t move. I even went to the extent of placing a sticker over it (the kind that you’re given at events as proof that you’re a guest), but a mere fragment of the colour pigments was lifted. It just does.not.move. -mindblown-

Escentials event14When they say Water Color – they literally mean that it has the same consistency as your primary school art kit watercolour set. It’s really watery, and is somewhat of a suspension, so you’ve really gotta shake up the bottle before application.


Escentials event15The effect with just one droplet of the colour – a natural rosy blush and a subtle bronzing effect


By Terry, Glam Glow, Annick Goutal and Diptyque are available at Escentials, Level 3, Paragon Shopping Centre
