Let’s #RockTheRocket!

Every time I enter the drugstores,the first space I’ll hit is Maybelline’s very own dedicated shelf space! (If I ever get down to launching my very own makeup line, that’s the space I’ll be aiming to go!) The rate they are launching new products is amazing! They just get better and better too!

Just SOME of the Maybelline products I have (and am still using!)

Sometime back I caught Watsons having a contest on their Instagram. It’s to win tickets to Maybelline’s The Rocket Volume Express Launch. I don’t really remember what’s the contest all about but I won, so.. HAPPY LA. 😛

I really loved the comic graphics and color mood of the ticket and it’s envelope. I took lots of photos of it with my old phone while having dinner before the event, but my old phone broke down (I got a S4 and will be blogging my first gadget post after playing enough with it! ) so I’ve completely lost all my pictures. Fortunately, there was an Instagram I did with several crops of the ticket, so here’s the best I’ve got. Read on coz I promise the rest of the pictures will get better since I took them with my compact camera – I’ve even got videos for you guys! Get ready for a eye fest!

Love the graphics on the ticket. Totally suits the product and the launch overall art concept.

I’ve always had the secret fantasy of applying mascara on my boyfriend’s long lashes (jealously longer than mine) but I really wonder what will happen if he actually picks up the wand and help me apply one day… will I go blind? *shudders*

The 2nd couple were pretty good but do ang mos really need mascaras? I mean, their lashes are so long!

And the first couple won purely by popularity. Guess they came in a big group. You get what I mean :)

The show ended with a lady giving us a song (sorry I didn't catch where she's from but I think she's a finalist from The Final One. Please let me know who she is if you know so I can update here!) . I think it might be her braces, or the mic or the sound system, but she sounded really really muffled so I didn't take any video.

The show ended with everyone on stage and Larry Yeo doing what a celebrity with great Social Media savviness would do - taking photos of their view!

And…. how can I end off without some products?! 😀

We were all treated to a goodie bag and here’s what I’ve got, minus the 2 Blue Mascaras in the Middle – THOSE ARE THE ALL NEW MAYBELLINE ROCKET MASCARAs! They were actually selling during the event at promotion price (though I do think they should have just included them in the Goodie Bag, I mean, it’s a product launch right?) and I got 2 – One for review and one for giveaway.

NOW WHY SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR EYES ON THIS GIVEAWAY? Coz you’ll be one of the first to get the product! The Rocket Mascara won’t be in store till September so.. I’m one of the first in Singapore to get it, and you might be one of the first to get your hands on this too! How to win? Scroll down for more information!
