What I Wore | Jxhia in Japan

Friday, November 25, 2016

Hello jxhiawong.com
its been a good few months since I last updated here, 
nothing much has changed apart from hair color, 
priorities and maybe a little weight changes too (by this I meant + not -)
If you've been a loyal reader ever since 6 years ago,
you would already know that I don't write as often as I should, 
and every year, 
when I feel like I took advantage of this page and just posting endless advertorials, 
I will take a break and stop posting, 
you know, 
like reboot or cleanse. HAHA

I want this page to fill with something I believe in, 
things I want to share.
Only up until 2 weeks ago I received several requests for blogposts regarding my recent Japan trip.

Should I do it....?
I wasn't sure at first but I pity my mom for being my photographer for the entire 12 days of Japan trip, 
so here, I announce that 
1. I will be writing about my trip but separated to different categories.
2. there WON'T be part 1, 2 or 3 like how we do it the old school way.
3. videos will be included in every post.

Let's start with my very first, 
I have travel to a winter country before, 
but so far, 
not during autumn, 
my worse experience was winter.
So I thought that if I survived great wall of china during winter, 
mount fuji won't kill me during autumn............
guess I was wrong.
here are my top 6 outfits throughout the entire trip, 
already tried to glam up for japan during the cold weather okay. hahahhh
Autumn is a very unpredictable weather, 
it could be super cold, but sometimes it could be tolerable, 
plus I did my research before flying over and news reported that Japan is extra cold during the time I'm travelling there......hence, I wrapped myself up like Michelin.

Bringing the BROW Power with Benefit x Buro247

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

A few weeks ago I attended an event for Buro247 x Benefit Malaysia, 
and it was pretty special to me and 13 other girls because Benefit will be launching their new range of Eyebrow products in Malaysia on 23rd of June 2016, 
BUT! 
the perks of being a beauty blogger is that Benefit Malaysia and Buro247 Malaysia is very kind to give me and other 13 girls a first preview of the product that is soon to be launched.
I was superrrrr excited because then I will be one of the first few to test try out the brand new eyebrow range and I heard that this launch is one of the biggest Benefit Malaysia launch ever, 
so do mark your calendars if you want to get hands on these awesome brow range on 23rd of june girls! 

Everything was set up so nice and perfectly all of us were enjoying a mini tea party while observing their brow artist demonstrating all the new products on Mina's eyebrow! 

There was a mini activity where Buro247 & Benefit sort of like printed out each of our very own face with our EYEBROWS PHOTOSHOPPED OFF on Frida's body and it was so hilarious for us because we find it super hard to draw tiny brows on the paper with no hair as our guideline, 
or even brow bone for us to feel where's our eyebrows, 
my picture turns out to look like a really hairy woman hahahah! 
If you're wondering who's Frida,
here's the exact same picture of her,
and I guess she's sort of the inspiration behind the thick and healthy brows hahah!

OKAYYY
So let's get down to business and talk about the products that they're launching! 

Here's the box with the awesome brow products that I personally can't wait to show you guys! 

Tadaaaaa
Benefit will be launching a total of 8 new brow products, 
however, I currently only have 4 of them to review and show you guys how it works, 
so do stay tuned for their products to be available at their counters.

These are all 4 products that I have in hand, 
which is the :
1 Gimme Brow 
2. KA-Brow
3. Browvo Conditioning Primer
4. Goof-Proof Brow Pencil

I know right?! their puns are superrr cute! 
The first time seeing the packaging really shocked me too, 
because Benefit have always been known for their vintage image and packaging, 
this time, everything just looks super classy with the silver touch,
then again,
Benefit never failed to surprise me with their packaging!
Since Gimme brow (Eyebrow mascara) has been around for quite sometime now,
I will save your time and my energy of explaining what it does,
but if you want to see a before & after pic of using the Gimme Brows,
scroll down further more to the brow tutorial part ! 

The first product I'm going to briefly explain to you guys is the Benefit Browvo Conditioning Primer! 
Now, we've heard of eyelash primer but have you guys heard of eyebrow primers?!
This is my very first time seeing an eyebrow primer that could be used in 
TWO DIFFERENT WAYS:
1. You can apply it overnight and it will help you boost your brows, 
and they will instantly look fuller, thicker and healthier! 
2. You can also apply it before any eyebrow product to enhance the color and also extend wear. 

Here I have with me, 
is the Goof Proof Brow Pencil in the color no.3, 
this brow pencil is said to be able to last up to 12 HOURS & at the same time, 
it is WATERPROOF! 
I've always been a lazy person, so this eyebrow pencil is perfect for me, 
because it is a twist up pencil, it saves us the hassle of sharpening the product!
The other end comes with a blending spoolie too :D


Here's a mini guide of how to use the Goof-proof eyebrow pencil! 

The lat product from the new product range is the KA-Brow cream gel brow color in no.3, 
apart from Anastasia Beverly hills eye brow gel, 
I've never really came across any brands that is available in Malaysia that carries a brow product like this. 
It works exactly like an ordinary gel eyeliner, 
however, this product's color is buildable, 
it will instantly change you from natural to super dramatic!
Also, 
this product can last up to 24hours & waterproof!! 

I love the fact that it has a built in brush for us to apply the product, 
and you can even secure it on the cap of the base to have a firmer grip while applying the gel! 

The custom built in brush is an angled brush that will make all of our lives easer, 
& makes our brows more fabulously arched ;)

I have a very neutral milk tea color here which is no.3 :)


Here's a picture of the difference between using the Goof Proof Brow Pencil 
and the KA-Brow Cream brow gel. 
Both of the products distributes the same amount of color, 
but, the only difference is that the KA-Brow is buildable, 
where the Goof Proof Brow pencil is slightly more natural. 
I've only applied Gimme Brow with the Goof Proof Brow pencil because I want to show you the difference of with and without applying Gimme Brow, 
as you can see right here, 
the left eye with the brow mascara made the tiny hairs looks a little bit more messy and it just gives the eye makeup a tad bit of fierce look, 
The right eye, without the Brow Mascara, 
the brows looks more tame and soft, not too harsh for any eye makeup that stands out. 

From this tea party launch, 
I learnt so much about eyebrows, 
I thought I've already mastered the trick of drawing my very own brows, 
BUT NO, 
because the picture of me without eyebrows was ruined due to my lack of experience in drawing brows hahahahaa! 
I learnt that different brows gives you a different look and style, 
even when the difference is very minimal, 
it shows in a very subtle way which frames your entire face and make your face makeup complete. 

Once again, 
if you guys are keen on getting hold of any new Benefit Eyebrow range, 
MARK YOUR CALENDARS, 
PUT REMINDERS, 
GO CAMP OUTSIDE OF BENEFIT 
hahaha joking kay. 

However, Benefit Malaysia do have a surprise for some you, 
I just came across their Facebook page and saw this!

you guys can also be the first to grab them BEFORE THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH ON 23RD OF JUNE!

The sale location is only available at:

Hello guys! 
I realized that ever since I moved to KL, I hardly take some time out to around to explore new cafés, 
up until a point when my friend ask me that hey, you're staying in KL now, 
you should know any nice cafés with good food or environment can recommend one right?
I'm ashamed to say 
"no I don't know" 
hahaha 
so when my good friend Shilyne came over, 
she sort of asked the same thing, 
but was actually quite clueless, 
so thank god she did some research and found this place in Naza Tower which is the BLVD café.

Natural Allure | Sephora Skincare Review

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

Every girls loves Sephora, 
well, at least I know I do! 
I've always enjoy shopping in Sephora, mainly because it is so convenient to get hold of the brands that I prefer and it also helps me save the hassle of traveling around to get several products since the online website is now available. 
If you have been following me on my blog or youtube, 
you guys would have probably known that I am obsessed with skin care products, 
I enjoy exploring new items on the rack and also experiment it myself so that I can improve my skin condition. 
Recently, about 2 weeks ago, I received a box full of wonders from Sephora, 
and it really amazed me how they always packed a box full of interesting things for me to test try and review! 
The last time, I received a makeup remover towel that said it could remove our makeup with just damping it with clear water, you can click HERE to read it.
