There will be plenty of time for questions at the end.
• Let’s begin by explaining the reasons of producing this
kind of mascara. Nowadays the need of wearing makeup
for women is just like the need of eating. Women will
feel more confident by wearing makeup because it can
make them look more interesting and more beautiful.
Makeup today is not only about face powder, lipstick,
eye shadow, blush on and eyebrow pencil. It has
expanded to the use of false eyelashes, eye liner,
mascara and any others. To make someone’s eyes look
more attractive, people not only put on eye shadow but
also put on other things like false eye lashes and
mascara. Let’s take Syahrini as an example. Her using
false eye lashes and mascara has made her have better
performance and of course it contributes to her career
as a singer. That is why our company thinks that today
mascara is one of the most wanted parts of cosmetic and
will have very good market in cosmetic industry.
• As I told you earlier, there were some pretty girls who
were wearing mascara at the Trio Singa’s concert. But
their mascara was not waterproof since it melted in the
rain water and made them look so funny. It may be
caused by the quality of the mascara that they wore.
So now I’ll move on to the next point about the
ingredients of our mascara product. DEFINICIL contains
of some good ingredients that make it have high
quality. They are:
ISODODECANE, CERA ALBA / BEESWAX / CIRE
D'ABEILLE, AQUA / WATER / EAU, DISTEARDIMONIUM
HECTORITE, CARNAUBA / CARNAUBA WAX / CIRE DE
CARNAUBA, ALLYL, STEARATE/VA
COPOLYMER, PARAFFIN, PROPYLENE CARBONATE
, VA/VINYL BUTYL BENZOATE/CROTONATES
COPOLYMER, TALC, POLYVINYL LAURATE, and SODIUM.
• This leads to the next points which are the benefits of
wearing this kind of mascara. The benefits that you will get
by wearing this Definicil Mascara by Lancome are:
-Delivers longer, high-definition lashes instantly
-Perfectly lengthens and separates lashes for natural look
-Waterproof formula keeps lashes from smudging
-Ophthalmologist-tested. Fragrance-Free. Suitable for
contact lens wearers
• Next, I’ll talk about the price. Because of the high quality
ingredients and the benefits that you get from this
mascara, the price will be a bit more expensive than the one
of other brands. It costs $27 or it will be around 270,000
rupiah for the consumer price. The price is quite worth it for
buying this mascara. If you are wholesalers or retailers, you
don’t need to worry to get customers because people today
don’t mind to spend a lot of money for good quality goods.
