Not forgetting, I get to go home with generous goodies bag from the following sponsors.

Beauty Keeper (美麗掌櫃)
I get to know this Taiwan Online Store last year from Sample Store Giftopia Event. Here, they have lots of products, from skin care, hair care, mask, makeup brush to sports bra, etc.
Some of the products at Beauty Keeper Booth.
As I am still enthusiastically trying out their products given to me last year during Giftopia event, I was given a bag full of their new products at the event. Can't wait to try them. Look out for my reviews in my blog after I have tried them. :)

Padeve is a new brand I get to learn during this event. It's great to find a local brand women's care product. Their sanitary pads contains herbal that helps to make this every month activity for women a comfortable and nice one. Their pads are ultra thin but have great absorption power.

Thanks Padeve for the bag of their different varieties of sanitary pads. I am sure it will be of great help for my monthly affair. :)

Yeo's JusCool + SampleStore
Besides products to use, I get to bring home a bag of cool and refreshing JusCool sparkling drinks from Yeo's which consist of 6 different flavours.

Gassy drinks is always something I am afraid of. But it is great to know Yeo's JusCool contain real fruit juice, lightly carbonated and 25% less sugar. And most importantly I can drink at ease as it's awarded Healthier Choice Symbol.

Not forgetting S$20 Capital Mall Voucher from Sample Store.

Came in a zip lock bag.
The cloth pad came in nice round shape with flower pattern on it. Looks like mini version of mask to me
Nice flower pattern on the pad.
It is covered with serum that feels a little sticky and oily to me. 
Serum inside the pack.
Looks pretty cute on my face. :) However, I don't see much effect on my face. Maybe my skin wasn't that dry for me to see significant result in the first place. But it is a nice quick fix tool. :)

Covered with white cover.
Woven net seen after opening the white cover.
Liquid foundation covered evenly on puff.
And I know that the product is not used before as there is a sticker that needs to be removed before it can be use. Pretty hygienic here.
New pact covered with sticker on top of the woven net.
I like this foundation. After apply, it makes my skin looking brighten up and smooth. Looks natural. And it is indeed long lasting. Even after a hot and sticky day, it still stays.

Ok, I don't actually use contouring stick as I am a lazy women. But this stick says it will get it done in seconds. Hm...makes me curious. Not a really necessary item in my makeup list but can give it a try.

The stick came double sided and small, very easy to bring around.
Double sided.
The highlighter part is beige in color while the shading part is brown in color.

Eye palette came in a very compact and thin box.
There are a total of 6 colors in the palette.
Came in 6 colors.
How the colors look like.
I do not need to worry about brush as a makeup brush comes with this eye palette. And I do all 3 areas of the makeup using this 1 brush. Its really easy.
Came with a brush.
What I like most is that this 1 eye palette can be use on 3 areas: eyebrow, eyeliner and eye shadow. This means I can carry less during travel. 

I like the colors of the palette. It looks really natural and nice. If you do not like too wild colors, then you will like these natural and soft colors on the palette, like me.

Blingsome - Long Lasting Lip Lacquer (#4 Dusty Coral)

Just open the cap, twist to let out the lip lacquer and apply to lip. 

My Review
The lip lacquer came in a very classy look. 
Classy look.
Sticky to show that it's sealed.
Once open I can smell very nice fruity fragrance.  

Ok I admit, this is the first time i use a lip lacquer. And I totally goes ??? when I open the cap of the lip lacquer and the instruction is not helping coz it is in Korean. 

The inside looks a little special to me. It look like a normal lipstick yet it is not. Before I thought of breaking the stick into half, I accidentally twist the top part of the lip lacquer and cream lip stick came out from the small hole. 0_0 ( me mountain tortoise please)
How the inside looks like.
Lip lacquer twisted out.
The lip lacquer looks glossy but when apply, it actually is matte texture but not drying to the lip at all. 
Nice color.
Color wise looks natural on my lip. I actually have crack lips but my lip looks smooth after application. 
Before and After application.
I like it that this lip stick does not smudge or leave a stain easily. And it has good lasting power. It is still nicely on my lip even after a meal. :)

  • Skin is balanced and hydrated.
  • Light Blue creamy texture

  2. With warm water, gently roll and massage the face and then wash off.
My Review
This 4D Pore Balance Foam & Pack came in a long tub and is nicely sealed. 
Nicely sealed.
I thought it is a normal cleanser that can work as a scrub to clean pores and dead skin cell. But it says makeup remover too. So I did a small test. 
Light Blue creamy texture.
It does cleanse off light makeup but I personally feel that it is not totally cleanse. So I better use this as a cleanser cum scrub. 
Waiting for it to dry before washing off.
Although it does not work well as a makeup remover, it works well as a cleanser. My skin does feel cleanse and hydrated after wash. 

Alright that sums up the 6 products in the Althea 10 Minutes Makeup Challenge Trendy Box. Wait.....I think I miss out something....So can I really finish applying my makeup in 10 minutes using these?

Well I did try. I took 9 minutes and 45 seconds to done up my makeup. But that is when u are really very familiar on each application. Think you can do better? Pick up a box now and take up the challenge.
All ready to go out in 10 minutes.
Where to buy it?
