Aveda brings back the nature through the introduction of Invati™ and a mini workshop on creating a mini indoor garden

It’s Friday today and we all know what that means. It’s going to be a lazy day for most people and that includes me. I wouldn’t want to put up something heavy so let me tell you about an interesting event by Aveda that I went to last Friday. The event is all about introducing Aveda and focusing on Invati™ range. I really don’t know what else I can talk about Aveda and Invati™ this time because I’ve went for the press launch back in 2012, which you can read all about it here, I’ve reviewed the whole Invati™ range, which you can read here, ran two giveaway, had an event and a few more activities. Phew :D . Nowadays I don’t talk about what went down at an event however I had fun at this one and I wanted to note it down :)

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Too Faced Cosmetics Holiday Collection

Comparing to Tarte Cosmetics Sweet Dreams Holiday Collection 2014 which I posted last week, Too Faced is wayyyy easier to compile because the brand offers slightly lesser holiday sets and all the sets is not scattered over different stores. However, same as Tarte, I find it rather odd that they don’t feature all their holiday collection in the official website. That makes the compiling work harder.

But anyway, let’s take a look at what Too Faced has to offer this year. As usual, disclaimer. I might missed one of two holiday sets and also bear in mind these may or may not be available in Malaysia :)

ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame (Clear/Dark): Absolute must-have brow mascara to tame the unruly brow hair and to keep them in place all day long

I know I am slightly obsessed with anything to do with brow but I swear this ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame ‘came’ to me out of no where. The story is, I haven’t been browsing iHerb for a good few months so I thought of visiting the site to see what’s new. You know, window shopping for fun? But because I have been searching for ‘brow mascara’ through the internet and on iHerb before, this new product – ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame popped right at the recommended product section. I click on the link and the rest is history although the whole process took a few weeks because the product was out of stock. Initially I wanted to get the darkest shade of all (Clear/Deep) but the shade on the tube freaks me out so I decided on the second darkest of the lot, which is the one I’m reviewing today :D .

ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame
ELF Eyebrow Treat & Tame comes in five shades namely Clear/Light, Clear/Ash, Clear/Medium, Clear/Dark and Clear/Deep. Each of these cost only USD$3 (RM9.81) which is absolutely a steal considering you get two different product with two different function. There is nothing to shout about on the packaging because ELF has always been keeping everything simple from as long as I know them. When it comes to ELF, I’m not bothered by it’s packaging as I am too a minimalist :D . Eventhough the packaging is kept simple, I like that I can find all the information that I need to know about the product from the outer box.
