Capitol Piazza

Some weeks ago, I took half day off work and went on a beauty outing at Capitol Piazza.
It was so fun I can't wait to plan another before the year ends!
Capitol Piazza is your one stop beauty mall where you can get a complete makeover
to kick start the new year.

Christmas is just around the corner so ladies,
its time to let down your hair and pamper yourselves for working so hard this 2016!

This is the first time I'm exploring the beauty stores at Capitol Piazza.
I've been there a couple of times for meals though.
(There is an IIaoIIao outlet at the basement :P)

Some of the beauty stores include HighBrow, The Body Shop etc.
I really love the posh layout of the mall!

This is where I kick started my beauty tour!
PINK Parlour has been around since 2005 so most of you would have probably heard about them before. They specialize in waxing, mani & pedi, sunless spray tan and Alpha Light (Painless long term hair removal)

I booked myself a brow waxing and Brazilian ALPHA Light(Painless long term hair removal) session that afternoon.

Gotta love the plush pink seats

Different rooms for the various treatments they carry.

My beauty therapist got me started on the ALPHA Light treatment first with application of gel and it was the first permanent hair removal treatment I did with continuous sweeping motion of the wand. I was told that the continuous sweeping motion is more thorough as compared to pulses. The process was comfortable and the pain was very minimal. 

The ALPHA Light technology delivers light technology deeper and directly to the melanin in the skin and permanently damage hair follicles. The ALPHA Light technology has a longer lasting result and is suitable for deeper rooted hair. 

I proceeded with brow waxing after and it was done under 5 minutes!
So swift and effective, perfect for ladies who are always on the go.

My beauty therapist applied the warm wax on the unwanted hair and she stripped it as it hardened.
I like how it thoroughly removes all the unwanted hair and keeping my brows' natural shape.
It actually feels a little like threading but a lot less painful.

Can't miss a photo op with the pretty gold suede sofa before I left!

I was also given this Soothe Calm Protect Lotion before I left.

This lotion contains tea tree oil which acts as an antimicrobial to help fight against ingrown hair and protects the skin to inhibit the formation of pustules. For those who experiences redness on their skin post waxing / IPL, this lotion helps to soothe and reduce the redness. Love the cooling sensation upon application!

I've always been a fan of Lancôme (I've been using their Genefique serum for a few years now!) so I was excited to see their first boutique at Capitol Piazza.

La Maison Lancôme #01-02
1030AM - 10PM

After browsing through, I decided to try out the Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation because I was very attracted to its luxe packaging.

The very friendly store assistant helped me with picking the right shade and tested it on me. She also gave me a few options if I wanted to look fairer/tanner. Superb service there!

This cushion gives a great medium coverage that can be built up and it is great how it leaves my skin hydrated with a slight glow. We all know how humid the Singapore weather is, but this cushion actually keeps my skin fresh the whole day, without looking oily.

The patented Polar Cushion Technology is unlike a sponge cushion. The fibre network is specially crafted lock in high coverage textures and the touch-activated filter dispenses the perfect amount of formula with every application.

If you're looking for a new cushion to try out, feel free to pop by the Lancôme boutique at Capitol Piazza to test it!
