Join Seventeen and Fasio At The Largest Mascara Makeover Event Ever!

Singapore, 16 March 2009 - Seventeen, a publication of SPH Magazines Pte Ltd ("SPH Magazines") and leading Japanese cosmetic brand Fasio are aiming for a place in the Singapore Book of Records with their Mascara Makeover campaign.

From March 16 to 22, The Seventeen/Fasio Mascara Squad will visit tertiary campuses and a popular shopping mall in town, inviting girls to try Fasio’s Hyper-Stay Mascara Deep Trick Curl Long. The objective of the week-long campaign is to garner 2,000 trials of the popular mascara, thereby setting a local, and possibly world, record for the most number of “mascara makeovers”.

In addition to a mascara makeover, participants will also be treated to a hair makeover using Lucido-L products and a complimentary photoshoot courtesy of Epson – after which they will get to take their photo print home. At the end of the campaign, the Seventeen/Fasio Mascara Squad will create a montage of makeover photos and present it to the Singapore Book of Records for verification.

Seventeen editor Sasha Gonzales says: “I believe this is the first time such an event is being organised. Singaporeans like setting and breaking records, so I’m positive this campaign will be a huge success. I have no doubt we will have droves of girls coming down to our makeover locations to try Fasio’s Hyper-Stay Mascara Deep Trick Curl Long. We look forward to making history with this exciting event.”

To help get the word out about how Fasio’s Hyper-Stay Mascara Deep Trick Curl Long can dramatically transform one’s eyelashes, Seventeen and Fasio have enlisted well-known beauty bloggers to try the product and share their makeover experience on their blogs.

The Seventeen/Fasio Mascara Squad will kick off the mascara makeover campaign on March 16 and 17 at the National University of Singapore. On the 18th, the Squad will take its campaign to SIM University, and on the 19th and 20th, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University respectively. Over the weekend of March 21 and 22, the Squad will make its way to Bugis Junction, where Fasio makeup artists hope to give thousands of mascara makeovers to female shoppers. The first 100 girls to sign up for a lash makeover every day will also receive a Fasio goodie bag.
