Though a fan of natural makeup, I still have those days when I'm in the mood for a bit of unexpected pops of colour. My daily makeup kit has tons of neutral colours, but I do have a stash of neons and brights for editorials and high fashion shoots that require them. So when I received an invite from Glamourbox for the launching of yet another interesting makeup brand, Pop Cosmetics, I knew these would go directly to what I call my "fun makeup kit".


These customized sweet treats in the form of Pop Beauty cosmetics are too cute to eat!

Famous for vibrant colours, innovative formulas and foolproof makeup, POP products are designed with the latest technology ad highest quality raw materials. 

Playful, quirky and bright, POP offers what every fun girl needs -- from primers all the way to glosses and even nail lacquers!

But before I move on to the colorful world of Pop Beauty, let me give a brief review of my experience having my hair styled by Blo. For those who's first hearing of Blo Dry Bar, it is North America’s original Blow Dry Bar that offers quick and affordable catwalk-quality blowouts. Blo was the first to market the “no cuts, no color” concept in North America and is all about hairstyling. There are 7 different styles featured in the hair menu – from the sexy razor-straight “Executive Sweet” to the sultry, tousled, bed head inspired “Pillow Talk”. Aside from blo outs, Blo offers other services such as blo out with hair treatment, hair extension installation, blo bridal packages, and blo parties.  

For the POP Beauty event, Blo has cutomized five different hairstyles to choose from:

I was so tempted to do get POP Chic but I always curl my hair even on normal days so I went on and chose POP perfect for just some volume.

So pampered to have two efficient hairstylists. With my thick mane, I was surprised it only took them ten minutes to dry and style it!

Viola! The POP Perfect style was definitely the right choice! It brought out my highlights and layers and made my hair look luscious and healthy than it really is. If you want this hairstyle / blowdry, request for The Red Carpet style on your next visit at Blo.

Now, back to POP Beauty cosmetics. They prepared a makeup station for the guests to be able to try out all of their products. 



The last time I had my makeup done by another artist was six years ago, back in Hollywood when I was finishing my Master's course in Makeup. I thought it was time to be on the makeup chair again and be made up by somebody other than myself. 

Thank you Daisy for my natural makeup with a POP of color.

Here are the products she used and what I can say about them:

POP Bright Up Your Life

These palettes of signature shades add vibrancy & a pretty POP to your eye makeup wardrobe, creating endless options for a rainbow array of eye-brightening looks. Intense colour teamed with silky texture blends flawlessly, creating a delectable delight to truly make your eyes pop!

Smokin Hot and Naturally Bare Eyeshadow Palettes

POP Rouge Mix 

This lip & cheek cream palette of intensely pigmented hues has been designed for multipurpose mixing & matching, makeup artist style. Inspired by the POP makeup artist team, these are the top colours used on shoots & at events. With this, anyone can create a coordinated lip & cheek look!


POP Peak Performance Mascara

A revolution in mascara application! Lash-protecting formula is delivered through an advanced lash comb that separates, coats, lifts & fans out every lash, resulting in immense lash volume & dramatically maximized eyes. The hygienic twist-up wand prevents bacteria build up & the conditioning formula to dry out.

Peak Performance Mascara in Inky Indigo. Also available in Brown and Black.

POP Plump Out


This plumping pout perfector combines the high-shine of a lacquered gloss with the long wear of a stain and is packed full of lip-plumping peptides and avocado & jojoba oils. The lightweight yet creamy texture immediately delivers intense glossy colour for an extremely long-lasting finish.

Plump Out in Honey Rose, Peony Petal, Fuchsia Freesia and Bare Nectar


As if the makeover wasn't thrilling enough, POP Beauty prepared a nail station for us to enjoy. 


POP Beauty's Nail Glam ranges from shimmering stunners, flouro neons, and dramatic deep shades. Each Nail Glam shade is non-occlusive so it won't stain nails and also contains nylon to create a strengthening non-chip barrier, making staying-power sensational.
