SINGAPORE, January 2013 – If you’ve been despairing over finding a BB cream suitable for your skin’s sensitive needs, you can now welcome ‘skintelligent beauty’ with international sensitive skin specialist VMV Hypoallergenics’ all-new BB Cream, Skintangible “Faint”ation! Say goodbye to pale and sallow skin and impress with a warm and “dew”lightful glow as the multi-purpose BB Cream “skintrigues” and refines the complexion for a dewy unblemished look while optimising skin safety!
In line with VMV Hypoallergenics’ “skintelligent” philosophy, Skintangible “Faint”ation is more than a simple cosmetic tool as it does not contain any common allergens, making it safe for sensitive skin. This barely-there, subtly tinted non-makeup contains antioxidants and pure mineral SPF 30 sunscreen protection to guard against fine lines, hyperpigmentations and other signs of aging. It also contains coconut-derived monolaurin and other monoglycerides for anti-inflammatory purposes. This means that Skintangible “Faint”ation not only masks blemishes, but also soothes acnes and blemishes.
There are multiple ways of using this beautifully tinted BB cream – apply it solely as a non-makeup that leaves the complexion incredibly flawless yet natural-looking, or use it under make-up as an enhancing primer that forestalls excessive oil and keeps your skin looking fresh even on the longest of days!
With a “can’t-put-my-finger-on-it-but-wow-your-skin-looks-awesome” even finish and a charmingly warm glow, you’ve never been better prepared for flashing camera bulbs or critical eyes!
The VMV Hypoallergenics’ Skintangible “Faint”ation comes in one shade and is suitable for all skin types. The travel size (12mg) is currently available at VMV Hypoallergenics’ Skin Specialist Boutique in ION Orchard, #B3-48, for SGD24.00, while the full size will be available from March 2013.

Pdt Information (taken from the VMV website)
Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara
With a special compound that swells up and surrounds each lash strand in a tube – a physical sleeve – of its very own.
Each application builds an ever-thicker cocoon of rich, beautiful color.
Non-clumping, smear-free (and therefore skin-friendlier). Easy to remove.
Take mascara wand and apply Ooh-La-Lash! on lashes. Start at the base and swipe outwards in a smooth motion. Repeat until desired volume is achieved.
For increased definition, use Skintelligent Beauty Brow + Lash Groomer to separate lashes.
Do not pump brush in container. This can increase the risk of microbial contamination and dry out mascara.
Skintelligent Beauty Glitz Lipstick
Brilliant. Rich, glistening color is playful and sexy, lifting spirits on a daily basis.
100% free of all-types-of-fragrance, irritating waxes, phthalates, parabens + preservatives.
With green tea for antioxidant benefits plus virgin coconut oil for moisturization.
In Drama Queen, our most popular shade. This sophisticated, deliciously deep pink is perfect for the holidays and flatters all skin tones.
Apply on lips as often as necessary.
Here are more pix of the actual products.
And here’s a swatch of the Beauty Glitz Lipstick in Drama Queen on the back of my hand.
The Beauty Glitz Lipstick in Drama Queen, looks more like a deep red in the bullet at first glance. When swatched, it is actually more of a deep pink with a red tone. It seems to be a shade that will flatter most skin tones, so that it is definitely a plus especially when buying gift sets. I’m sure you’ve encountered a a gift set that came with one of those deep plum shades that not everyone can carry off.
It is quite moisturizing upon application, and it goes on quite sheer at first. You can build up the color intensity to your preference. So for those who prefer a light sheen with a wash of pink on your lips, just one layer of application should do nicely.
As for the Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara, i think i really really like this product. Very much indeed. It doesn’t clump your lashes together, and from what i can see, it helps to lengthen my lashes, giving that va-va-voom effect. It dries quite quickly too actually, i don’t have to “fan” my eyes to try and help it dry faster to avoid smudging my eye makeup. Very happy with this!
All in all, i think the Mistle Glow holiday kit is quite value for money considering there are 2 full-sized products in there. Both products are pretty generic in the sense that these are items widely used by most of us girls. (Unlike say…fake lashes… not all of us use them or like using them.) And most importantly, VMV has chosen 2 outstanding performers from their cosmetics range for this holiday kit.
I was very excited to try it out when i received it, so i did a real quick application of both, and here’s the result. I do apologize for the poor lighting here, but taking pictures at night can be a real challenge.
Here’s a closer view of my lashes
