Sweet & Lovely packaging always capture my attention and that is exactly what happened when I step into Muse Watson store. The black round petals of Mary Quant Daisy flower logo is so adorable and yet elegantly beautiful… The logo is simple but captivating to many!

Even the paper bag is so beautifully done! This black Daisy tend to give lots of ideas to the founder, Mary Quant whenever she scribbles the daisy on her rough sketch. This is how daisy has become the symbol of Mary Quant that symbolizes the freedom of women brought about by Mary Quant, who continuously crating new concepts of beauty by defying stereotypes.

Mary Quant, a fashion designer initially conquered the globe with the launch of the miniskirt, which would have been unthinkable before that time. For Mary, cosmetics are part of fashion,with unrestricted combinations to enhance female beauty. The aim? To allow women to express their true selves and enjoy life.

“Be free, be yourself. This spirit is part of our brand, and it will never change.”

I was drew to the colourful eye shadows that opened up my eyes… The vast varieties of colour selections is just great, from matte to the shimmery type all available at the counter. Just pick the one you love and combine them into the lovely casing. Me and Diana just go swatch all the colours on our arm while waiting for the make up demonstration to begin! Each single eye shadow is priced at RM 49.

It creates a soft tautness and gives a good coverage. Eye gloss is something new to me! This delicate foundation is specifically for eye-area. It helps to covers dark circles and dullness and enhance the eye shadow colours applied on your eyes.

The cupcake is super adorable!!!!!!!!! and taste soooo yummy too… Their packaging is so beautiful and very sturdy that it has stopper to avoid the eye shadow or blusher from moving in the plastic packaging. The black daisy palette casing is so elegant too (it look very alike to Anna Sui packaging but honestly I love daisy more). The lipstick look like a nail polish before the cap is removed!!!!! Loving the sleek finish!
