Trying out Vardi & Migdal - Peach & Wild Flower Body butter on my skin.

My skin after using Vardi & Migdal - Peach & Wild Flower Body butter in just 1 application:

My review:
After shower, one should use body butter as water soaking into the skin will dry it out and crack it. Using body butter will help to keep the skin moisturized and lock the water and bad moisture out of your skin =) Vardi & Migdal - Peach & Wild Flower Body butter is a luxurious body cream, I like its sweetness and freshness fruity scent, after application, although abit sticky at the beginning but skin feels instantly hydrated and heavenly soft and supple ^_^Ladies, remember to take care of our body skin too!

VDL Launch Party at Suntec

VDL is a 'unique cosmetics brand' dedicated to women who actively seek out and realize their dreams and desires. Through interactions with world-renowned makeup artists, fashion designers and celebrities, the Color Lab presents endless variations of color-inspired by latest trends and global sensibility.

Violet Dream Luminous
Dream of VDL
Lumilayer Technology

 Today is the VDL Launch Party day! I am one of the lucky FIRST 30 to register for the party for FREE! and walk away with the standard Goodie Bag worth $51! I am so excited about it ^_^

Live makeup demo by makeup maestro : Clarence Lee in the VDL Launch party at 5.30pm!! Suntec City Mall VDL store #02-338/339!

The Makeup tools (such as different type of makeup brushes and eye lash curler) and some VDL cosmetics that Clarence Lee will be using later on the model in Live makeup demo.
 Clarence Lee applying VDL purple eye shadow on the model to create a evening look!
Woah!!! VDL full range of eye shadows. You can definitely find one that suits you the best for all occasions.
 One of the VDL make up star product for today, the Eye BOMB mascara (to open up your eyes)!!!
VDL Eye BOMB Mascara - Every girl/women should have 1 in the makeup box~~

1. Boom-up Formula

1) Boom-up Formula: Melted blending wax evenly covers the lashes for volume that explodes off the face.
2) Boom-Up Lengthening: Cottony light fibers help mascara last longer by adhering to lashes.
3) Boom-Up Curling: The firm, light jelly formula cushions and makes for the best extreme curling.

2. Mixture Oxygen
Contains oxygenated water for a light, yet long-lasting effect that treats lashes while it beautifies.

3. Boosting Brush
The mega-balancing brush, optimized for the boom-up formula, boosts volume, length and promotes curls.
*Smart cleansing: Mega-Oxygen Technology means no more smearing or fading on the eye.  The brush can be cleaned easily in warm water.

*Eye-Bomb Wax StorageContainer : The large, round container is especially designed to contain plenty of Boom-Up formula.

*Eye-Bomb Express: White express dual-blending wax goes on thick for the most explosive volume statement. The black express comb means mascara goes on smoothly for the best curling.
Talking about mascara....Oh well...I am a mascara junkie. I have tons of mascaras in my makeup box and something that I cannot do without to complete even a simple makeup. I always believe in order to have dolly eyes, we need mascara especially for Asians because most of us have short and fewer lashes =(

There is a saying  'eyes are the windows to soul'  then your lashes are the curtains that frame them!
To have more dramatic effect on eye lashes, Clarence Lee recommends VDL fake lashes. He is demonstrating a way to stick lashes without having them fallen off in the middle of your event.
That is when after applying the lash glue on fake lashes, leave them on one side (do not immediately put them on) After a couple of minutes, gently put on fake lashes nearest to your lash line.


High-quality, handmade faux eyelashes to create varying impacts to the eyes.

They have quite a few range:

01 Festival Rock
07 Full Makeup
06 No Makeup
05 Gallery Tour
04 Swing dance
03 Photo wall
02 House Party
Sweet Pics of our VDL model here:
I simply like her Barbie doll outfit, hair do and makeover!

Another star product of VDL skincare is the *DRUMS*DRUMS:


Oversized cream fortified with prune water, strengthens the moisture barrier of the skin, capturing moisture and keeping it close to the face.

It has a 4 free System:
  • Mineral oil-free
  • Chemical colorant-free
  • Animal derived material-free
  • Petroleum derived surfactant-free
Can't wait to try it out on the spot! 
It  is loaded with 100% prune water, treats signs of aging and fortifies the skin's natural moisture barrier, maximizing moisture-retention capacity for healthy, soft results.

This purple gel-type moisturizer is hydrating and not overly thick or rich. It smoothens dryness and left my skin feeling soft and more plumped-up with light scent. It is a pleasant experience using VDL Beauty moisturizer!


It’s a tint, lip-balm and base in one. This innovative triple-colored tint coats, treats and colors lips for a bright and voluminous look in just a single sweep of the stick.
