Event: Talika Lipocils Expert by CozyCot‏ & Review (Part 1)

I was invited by Cozycot to attend the bloggers event: Talika - Lipocils Expert.
At first when I read my email, I was thinking the word Talika is very familiar..hmm.. where have I heard it before? (I'll get to this part later ^_^)

On 25th Sept, I met up with Na, to go to Spa-Lon, Chijmes and there, we met Jiaqi at a cross-junction! =D Now, all the familiar faces!
(Credits to June See) Ok, why this pic? Na and me we are goofing around behind June (she's sitting infront of us) and joked that we'll all use this pic as our entry's first pic/cover pic. XD~ Seems like I'm the only person posting it up eh?


Talika Lipocils Expert Bloggers Event
At the SPA-LON Corridor


Inside SPA-LON



The speaker or rather, the presenter talked about Talika's history and products.
Every time a new slide flashes up on the white screen, every blogger whipped out their cameras to shoot! There are like 10 or more flashes happening at a time when the slides showed up. Hahax!~
After the presentation were done, we head outside for some FOOODDDD~ Yummy! If anyone wants to know, This caterer is CJS, they always make very nice food! =D


After our food and chit-chatting at the corridor, we went in SPA-LON again for some girly fun!

ARE YOU READY???? TO READ....
miwitch's REVIEW of Talika Lipocils Expert in 12 days (27 Sept - 8 Oct)

Close-up shots of Lipocils Expert applicator.
I used the sponge tip to go all over the roots of my upper and lower lashes and then brush my lashes in upwards motion (for upper lash only) with the brush.

In order to acheive the best comparisons of the lashes in photos, I took all photos in the same room, same lighting, same method using same camera.
However position of my eye might differ in every pic, the camera don't focus well at times and the photo brightness will be a little different too.
Plus, its EYELASH we're talking here, not a big object like TV or something... That would have been easier to shoot!
I'm sorry but my lashes are thin, not very long and full. So its very hard for me to focus the lashes easily without proper lighting and camera... >_< So this is the best I could provide.

Before you judge the product effectiveness base on my pictures and texts, please note the following:
- I try my best to use Lipocils Expert every Day & Night, but sometimes I forgot to apply either on the day or night but I DID apply it everyday.
- I feel that I have denser and longer lashes on my right eye than my left
- I have very droopy eyelids, which causes the lashes at most outer corner sometimes wandering into my eye, poking it.
- I have almost none (U_U") lower lashes, they are very thin & short and can even be counted using 10 fingers! (or maybe 20..)
- I have super sensitive eyes (super meaning is more than 'very'). Anything that goes into my eyes, I will tear buckets.
- The white part of my eyes are usually pinkish looking on normal days. Anything that hurts or stings my eyes, it will go bloody red.
And hence, I find that I'm rather a good subject for trying out a lash serum, I just hope I wont go BLIND trying out things on my eyes.. +_+"

Before & After
I PSed only the white parts as they are too scary looking, and I've sharpened alittle on the lashes for a clearer view.
 

Spot the difference
Infact on the 3rd day (ie, 29 Sept) I already realised that my lashes are thicker!
Everyone like long lashes, but I DO NOT like the lashes at my outer corner of my eyes to be too long cos it will poke my eye sometimes due to my droopy eyelids. =( And then I will tear...

*Sorry for spelling mistake for Curlier (i spelt curvier.. hahax~ =p)

Whether the lashes are curlier than last time, I think they are but verrrrrrrrrrrrry little. I forgotten to take a sideview pic on first day to compare with this. *slaps head*
I have rather stubborn straight thin lashes as like my stubborn straight thin hair, so they are very hard to curl with curlers, I had to press the curler like 20 times in order to get them stay in shape before I apply mascara. Nowadays I find that its much more easier as they will stay at the curled shape for quite long even without putting on mascara!

Lastly and MOST IMPORTANTLY, this Lipocils Expert DOES NOT STING my eyes AT ALL! *YIPPE!!!!!!!!!!*
When I apply it just right at the base or roots of my lashes without the content going into my eye, I feel NOTHING! No sting!
But when the content goes into my eye, it stings very little. I just blinked a few times and then its gone! I might tear a little due to the discomfort the little sting gave, but after awhile its ok. ^_^
I jus LOVE the feeling of no sting in compare to my DHC eyelash serum where it stings even when the gel is like a few mm away from my eyes.

This is only a 12-day efficacy test. We are suppose to come out with a 28-days efficacy test for Lipocils Expert.
I came out with the test earlier cos I haven't got time to post about the bloggers event last month. So, I thought I might as well post a 12 day first as a teaser or something. More like I wanted to know the results myself. =p Hang on to your pants! I'll be back with the 28-days test review! (^,~)v♥
