The full color collection for Mamonde Cosmetics is out now at the counter in Tangs Beauty Plaza Vivocity.
And while I do suggest buying a lot of their skincare on Lazada since there are frequent promotional/exclusive sets including "Doctors" star Park Shin Hye's hand picked limited edition ones, when it comes to makeup, sometimes we just want to be able to swatch and feel things before we buy.
I highly suggest you take a look there!
The gorgeous Shimmer Bricks I spoke about on IG previously are now out.
These are $30+ and super smooth although some are subtler, some more intense.
You will have to take a look in person cos I am not sure photos do these justice.
My favorite is probably this golden brown palette because the textures are so incredibly smooth and pigmented.
The softer prettier quads are better suited for subtle glimmers of shine on the lids, or to add a pop of highlight when you use other palettes.
You can also use these damp for crazier intensity and more opaque color but I think a good primer will also do the trick.
I have not had time to give the super cute floral blushes a try yet but I was SO pleasantly surprised to see a contouring shade.
08 is a nice taupe brown that doesn't run too orange for sculpting or too grey for bronzing.
But Mamonde is a Korean brand after all, so safe to say this was designed more for sculpting facial features than to give you an allover tan.
Another thing I wanted to highlight was the fact that they have 2 shades of brown for their gel eyeliners and the one to look out for is the slightly rosier/pinker brown tone because I find the color pretty unique.
If you think about a lot of hair dyes and those rosy browns that are named "strawberry brown" or "pink brown", this is that sort of unique soft spiced brown color.
Very pretty if you are doing soft or minimal eye makeup, and definitely cool with your strawberry/cherry brown hair.
Of course we can't talk about color makeup without talking lips.
And here's the other main reason to go down to the counter.
True Color Lip Sticks.
If you love Asian-formula matte lipsticks, you will probably like these cos:
1. They are super smooth and not drying
2. They feel lightweight with that powder-matte texture
3. They come in beautiful vibrant tones that suit Asian complexions
They have that perfect texture that allows you to wear them sheer or intense.
There are 20 shades in the line and a large proportion are those trendy, vivid corals reds and pinks.
There ARE a couple of neutral/beige-based shades which is surprising cos Korean brands typically don't have a lot of beiges/nudes.
So there's a good variety here. Including one vampy deep wine shade.
Sorry there isn't 09 in my swatches. There was one shade missing in my "swatch kit" so you'll have to refer to the color chart I shared above!
05 is one of Park Shin Hye's top 3 (as well as mine). I have the color sitting on my desk LOL cos it's one of those shades that just brightens up your entire face.
It looks red but wears slightly fuchsia as well, especially if you sheer it out for that K-style stained look.
My other fave is 06 cos a deep bright pink NEVER goes wrong.
Here 11-13 are quite similar to me but 11 is the shade Park wears in the campaign shot. If you are not porcelain fair 12 and 13 have SLIGHTLY more red tones and will flatter medium-fair to medium skins more than 11.
I do also recommend you check out 15 which is a maraschino cherry red that has a pink undertone.
As for the neutrals, 19 is a deep burnt peach beige that Park loves. It's a surprisingly "Western" shade what with all the orange and red toned eye palettes around now.
P.S. If you are a Park Shin Hye fan take note that she is going to be at Vivocity Central Court A on 21 July 5pm.
She will be there to celebrate the launch of Mamonde in Singapore and to also share some of her beauty tips with fans.
(Yeah I wish it was a timing more friendly to working people...)
If you can't make it but are a super-fan, Lazada is also giving away a signed book worth $150 for the top Mamonde customer this month. Just FYI!
If you can make it to the Mamonde "Garden in The City" event area at Central Court A (anytime this week until Sunday), there are also tons of special deals on offer for a limited period.
Plus today is the last day to win VIP tickets to be up close and personal with Park Shin Hye if you make purchases at the atrium.
For more details on all these activities and promotions stop by the Mamonde Singapore FB group!
