In March 2012 Lancôme launched their most flirtatious Hypnose Doll Eyes Mascara. A volumized, extended and full lash fringe mascara for a wide-eye look. It is also Lancôme's first fragranced mascara, scented with light notes of Jasmine Petals, Turkish Rose and Magnolia.
In February 2012, La Prairie launched a new product "La Prairie Cellular Power Charge Night" to their premium skincares line.
Cellular power charge night is the bold new power player in the realm of anti-aging skin treatments. Thanks to a unique delivery system that creates stunning synergy between previously incompatible substances, La Prairie adds a never-before combination of Retinol and Oxygen to the unprecedented skin-renewal energy of Cellular Power Infusion.

State-of-the-art dual-stream delivery ststem the catalyst The unique delivery syste, of Cellular Power Charge Night is as groundbreaking as the treatment itself. As many age-inhibiting ingredients are too potent to be combined - traditionally Retinol cannot be mixed with oxygen - La Prairie developed a revolutionary dual-stream delivery system that permits the highest potency of each ingredient to be kept separate until the moment of application.
The sleek, silvery pump bottle holds two separate chambers: one containing smooth, white microencapsulated Retinol cream. The other, a silken blue oxygen power gel. With a gentle press of the pump, the two come together and magical things happen- at night, when your skin is the most receptive to rejuvenating treatments.
Gel like consistency - doesn't feel greasy nor too rich when spread it out on the back of my hand. It feel pretty moist and once it's absorbed skin feel smooth and non sticky. (This was base on just swatching at the back of my hand - not too sure how this feel on the face)
Targeted Ingredients accelerate rejuvenation The same scientifically calibrated blend of energizers, hydrators and conditioners that created the superlative age-defiant action of Cellular Power Infusion, works in tandem with Activated Retinol and Oxygen Accelerator Perfluorodecalin to achieve the outstanding restorative benefits of Cellular Power Charge Night.
Skin Renewal Peptides and Phyto Stem Cell Extract help maintain the natural epidermal stem cell function; Swiss Snow Algae increases the cells' longevity and counteracts UV stress and Tissue Guidance matrix promotes the renewal of skin tissue.
Nighttime power Cellular Power Charge Night goes to work while the body is at rest and therefore the most susceptible to its magical powers.
To use, depress the pump dispenser, releasing separate streams of Retinol Cream and Power gel to the back or palm of your hand. Then gently blend the two with your fingertips and apply to face and neck. As Retinol's efficacy is best when applied directly to the skin, no other treatment product should precede application.

Talika will be launching Skin Retouch (photo retouch effect) - The instant retouching Fluid in April 2012.
Attended the media launch at Fullerton Hotel on 12th March.
That's Mr Francois Henri Jacques Laurent (Talika Marketing Director) presentating the launch.
Anti-aging treatment: Adenosine >>> Adenosine is absorbed deep into skin layers, triggering the hyper-production of collagen in the body >>> An advance new-generation cosmetic ingredient, recognized by official health institutions as effective against wrinkles >>> Proven safe and effective for use night and day, unlike other wrinkle inhibitors Vitaminc C and Retinol, which lose effectiveness with exposure to light and heat
Whitening treatment: Bisabolol >>> Highly purified, natural aplha-bisabolol(>97%) from ancient medical Brazilian tree, Candeia. >>> Inhibits pigmentation process by interfering with melanin production and tyrosinase activity. >>> Safe for long-term usage with no adverse side effects.
A gel like consistency - when first spreading out, it feel quite moist - after 30secs(or when it dry).. skin feel silicon-y velvety smooth and OMY.. it does look like photoshopped!! Not too sure how it will look like on the face (haven't try it yet)... but it does make the skin on the back of my hand and fingers... look so flawless!
Note: This primer cannot be use together with liquid nor cream foundation. Only work with powder or 2 way cake foundations.
This is an introduction post, review will be up once I try it out for a period of time.

Launched in 2011 and already a best- seller, Maqui Blanc Miracle Compact is up-graded in 2012 to incorporate Lancome latest technological advance in both makeup and skincare and becomes Maqui Blanc Miracle Compact Crystal Brightening Creator.
Lancome's signature silvery box packaging..
For the first time, especially designed for Asian women, Aura-Inside(TM) technology is enriched with a brand new purple light essence. Purple being directly complementary to yellow on the colour spectrum, this unprecedented light essence helps effectively neutralise the dull, yellow undertones, one of the main concern of Asian women, lighting up the complexion. As a result, this unique quadruple light energy creates a dazzling aura of crystal brightness that seems to come from within.
In another first, the beautifying effect of Aura-Inside(TM) technology is supplemented by specific ingredients selected from Lancome's Blacn Expert whitening essence line, notably Rose and Mint extracts. They are combined with anti-oxidant and moisturising Lotus extract, long valued in traditional Chinese medicine.
This ultra-complete formulation, unprecedented for a compact foundation(can be use dry or wet), is reinforced by an exceptional 12-hour staying power. Optimised resistance to shine and humidity - a must in the exceptionally hot and humid conditions of the Asian summer - is provided by advanced absorbent pigments and filters.
To verify the ultimate wear of its new formula, Lancome asked Asian women in Singapore to test Maqui Blanc MIracle Compact Crystal Brightening Creator during the month of July, the most challenging tume of the year. 81.6% of women agreed that it controlled shine during the day, resisting sweat and sebum, while 89.3% said it reduced the yellowish tone of the complexion. Maqui Blanc MIracle Compact is also proven to visibly reduce the total area of pores by 43%.
The expanded color palette encompasses 8 shades specifically developed by Lancôme after in-depth consultation with women in Japan and China.
Complementing its new compact foundation, Lancome offers award-winning Maqui Blanc Miracle Natural Brightening Creator fluid foundation SPF26 PA+++. Both suit all skin types, even sensitive skins
The compact foundation ingredients list...
The wonderfully fine lightweight powder texture of Maqui Blanc Miracle Compact Crystal Brightening Creator is ideally complemented by an upgraded duo sponge (now selling at $3 at all Lancome counters!).
The soft velvet sponge side, which is a delicate pinky beige in colour, lends itself to smooth, easy blending. The other side, which is white, has a silky, fluffy that is ideal for buffing skin to a flawless, pore-free finish.
New Blanc Maqui Miracle Compact Crystal Brightening Creator is presented in an elegant luxurious case which at launch, is available in a prestige limited edition with a delicate motif inspired by Rose spring blossom traced in dazzling silver on the lid.
Here are 3 interesting video clips demonstrating the 3 main characteristics of the compact foundation.
