My visit to Kryolan US Headquarters

On a Sunny Monday in San Fransisco, my boyfriend decided (After my nagging hehe) he'd take me to Kryolan to go to their showroom. The experience was wonderful, the people there were so helpful and there was this rush I felt knowing that Kryolan's US head quarters is where I visited. I guess I'm a makeup dork like that! haha Anyway without further a do, here are some pics and the things I came home with :)



My humble loot

Kryolan Fixer Spray
Dermacolor concealer wheel (I use as foundation)
Kryolan Aquacolor UV Day glow Palette
Kryolan Blusher Palette

Fixer Spray

If you are in the Bay Area, a visit to the Kryolan show room is something I advise on doing if you are a makeup junkie. You will have so much fun trying and checking out all their make up. I sure had fun! :)

Off to the land of the free....and MAKEUP!

A million apologies for not being able to update my blog recently. The reason being is that I have been working so much for the past week so that I won't miss work so much when I leave for the states tomorrow. For the past week, I have been busy working on make up for Magalogues, TV, Magazine beauty eds and a bunch of other gigs. I will be there for a month and I will surely be stocking up on make up goods and will be getting back on track in terms of blogging. :)

So my next post I will already be in the States and I can't wait to share with you my make up finds and goodies. :)

I really believe that you hair really is your crowning glory. The way it looks, the way that you can and the way that it is styled can make or break your overall style. No matter how short, long, straight or curly your hair is, the important thing is, is that your hair is healthy. Let Sunsilk save you bucks, instead of consulting your hair stylist and spending thousands in your regular salon visits, you can use Sunsilk co-creations. Your hair experiences expert touch, because the world's best expert helped make it. :) You really get an expert in a bottle. :)


My most favorite out of all the Sunsilk Co-Creations line has to be the anti-dndruff since my hair recently frequents dandruff and the Smooth and Manageable. I use the Smooth and Manageable when I feel my hair needs pampering. :) How about you guys? Have you tried this new line of Sunsilk? How did you like it and which is your favorite? :)




Toodles! :)
