Malaysia International Gifts & Premiums Expo 2013 & My Sephora Wishlist

IF YOU WANT TO DELIGHT SOMEONE, GIVE THEM A GIFT. This saying is a driving force in the gift and premium industry. The art of gifting has been practiced on a personal and corporate level. Companies present gifts and premiums to show their appreciation to their customers and partners as well as for branding and incentive programs.

MIGP Expo 2013 is making its comeback as the 3-day intensive business gathering for gift & premium suppliers to showcase their latest range of products to potential customers from the corporate and public sector. It is the event where potential buyers visit to source for new gift ideas and meet the industry suppliers face-to-face.

I find that I need to buy present every month. This month is Mother's Day and my best friend's wedding. Then next month is Father's Day. July is my mom's birthday. August is International Friendship Day. September is my bff's birthday. October is the mister's birthday. November is my brother birthday. Then comes December, which is the ultimate gift time.... Christmas!

I suck in shopping for gifts. I'm not the type of person that can read people's mind what they want. Although I wish I have that super power sometimes. Because then, it would be so easy for me to buy all the presents that I need to. 

Developing super power is not something that comes easily. Attending the Malaysia International Gifts & Premium (MIGP) Expo would be easier. 

What is this MIGP Expo? It is a gathering of all gift brands to showcase their products. So you can shop for discounted price gifts. If you're having a wedding soon and looking for wedding favors, or getting it as a door gift for your party, or corporate gifts, you cannot miss out this event. You can even get individual gifts there. Hint.... Mother's Day coming soon.

So when are where is this expo happening? From 13th May to 15th May at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. The event starts during normal business hour. You can check out more info at

And if you're a blogger, head on to the Butterfly Project page, and there's a little something for you. Announce the MIGP Expo on your blog. Then create a Sephora Wishlist. As easy as that. 9 bloggers will be randomly chosen to receive Sephora goodies or to go on Sephora Shopping Spree. 1 blogger will receive her wishlist. I won't miss out this chance because there are so many things that I've been eyeing in Sephora for a long time. And they are...........

Let me explain why I want these products:

Vera Wang Princess - It melts my heart everytime I see the pretty lilac heart shape bottle. It smells amazing. I've never had any delicate perfume like this, so I really wish I can have it. Pretty bottle and great scent is always my choice of perfume.

Ciate Honey Bee Paint Pots - By now you know that I love nude color nail polish. And Ciate has really pretty range of nudes. Go and check it out in Sephora and you'll know what I mean.

Sephora Sun Disk - I'm amazed by the Sephora Sun Disk plate everytime I take a browse at the Sephora home brand section. I've swatched some on my skin before and I think it is a great contour shade, as well as a bronzer. But the problem is, I have never thought on splurging on something so BIG (literally) before. It would be so nice if I can have it. For free, I mean.

Soap & Glory The Scrub of Your Life - I've been evangelizing to everyone that THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING BODY SCRUB EVER! I made my housemates buy it. I is really one of the product which you should get. It smooths out your skin without lacerating, and the smell is just so delicious. It is more of a sweet scent.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - This is an award winning product. Not to exaggerate it, but I think it is worth the award. If you don't have any skin problem and just need a little coverage to even out your skintone, this is the one you should try. It is like a moisturizer, but with a hint of color. I can't live without this. I wear this literally everyday and it hasn't cause any problem to my skin and stays moisturized even for more than 10 hours.

Smashbox Brow Tech To Go - This is an awesome product. It has a brow crayon on one side and another setting gel on the other side. It stays on forever until you wash it off. It doesn't smudge at all. But you have to pay the price for its good quality. The last time I bought it was RM90. I couldn't afford to use it everyday. So it is nice to wear it for special occasion.

Women's Someday by Justin Bieber - I have to admit, everytime I pay a visit at Sephora, I will wander to the perfume section and take a sniff of this Justin Bieber perfume. I'm kinda in dilemma whether to get it or not. As a perfume by itself, it is fantastic, but because it is associated with Justin Bieber, it makes me think twice. No offence to Justin Bieber, but I just don't want to be seen as one of her fangirl because I am not.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss - I'm not a lipgloss person because it gets sticky and I find it annoying when my hair sticks on it and food gets stuck at the side. The Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss is simply amazing. The color is good, it has durability of a lipstick and stays for a long time, it doesn't have that strong gooey texture. I've been swatching it in Sephora for a few times, I just can't decide which shade I should get.
