Reviews of haul

Monday, November 18, 2013

Helloooo beauty lovers :)
I am going to be doing a short and quick personal review of some of the product that I really really love, and their prices are all quite reasonable too
you can get most of the products listed below from sephora, 
I will also link the website here for you if there's a better price :D
So let's get started !
First off, I would love to say one more time : I LOVE BENEFIT PRODUCTS.
Its almost like none of the product does not suit or work on me, 
I've tried most of it, and I absolutely love them !
One of my main concern about my face is my dark eye rings, 
not much people noticed about my dark eye rings as I always conceal them, 
and a lot of you guys asked what kind of concealer I use, and which is the best for under eyes, 
I would definitely recommend Benefit's Fake Up, 
*I stole this image from google because I just realized I forgot to take the picture myself and yeah...its 2am in the morning *
As you can see, the concealer content is in the middle part, and the outer part is surrounded by moisturizer in a thicker form, and it has 3 different kind of collar tone choices.
this will actually help us moisturize our under eye area and makes life easier for us when it comes to blending, as it is more moist. 
Other concealer like maybelline and mac are a little bit too thick and heavy to wear all day, 
but this is so light, I just need to put on my sunscreen and wipe a few on the concealer under my eyes and I'm good to go. 

DENG DENG DENGGGGG!
i know, my under eyes are damn horrible hahaha
but its okay! because I have benefits fake up :P
the difference is not so much on picture, but in person it is more visible. 
and if you add some BB cream/foundation, it will not only last longer but it will cover more also. 
Just to test on scars, I have red weird spots on the side of my cheek in the left pic, I covered some fake up on them and it reduced the redness.

I am a huge laneige fan. 
I had been using their moisturizer earlier and now I had slowly changed my whole skin care routine to Laneige already. 

But the main thing is, I wanna emphasize more on the Balancing Emulsion
Before visiting the Laneige counter, I actually didn't know that Balancing emulsion existed.
it is a lotion sort of thing, but it is applied with cotton pad after toner and before serum so that impurities from our skin will be lifted off, and it will make the serum absorb better. 
Leaving you a bright a clear skin, almost glass looking. 
I had been loving this product, I had been using the sample pack and I recently finally bought the larger size and I can't wait to use it. 

You can actually see how moisturize it is.

The next product is actually crucial in a skincare routine, 
it is the Clinique eye cream. 
Before I decided to use an eye cream, 
I keep asking myself if i really needed it or is it going to suit me, 
I had done research and so much more reviews, and I had narrow down the list of amazing eye cream to this product. 
it is important because we can't actually use our moisturizer around our under eye area or our eye lid as it will either be too heavy or leave the skin oily. 
I had this bad habit of rubbing my eyes since young and nowadays, if I actually rub my eyes, a weird peeled skin will grow under my eye, sort of like a layer of horrible dead skin cell. 
and then my right eye's inner eyes corner got really dry and cracked and have a weird peeled skin too. 
So I really panicked and since I've done my research, I might as well go for this cream and see if it works, 
it really does guys. 
in just 3 days,
the weird dead skin is gone, 
my inner corners are healed. 
lesson learned, never rub our eyes and eye cream is definitely crucial. haha 

For the ones that I see in person frequently like my classmates would know that I am pale. No, I'm serious, like DEADLY pale.
the only reason that happen is because I don't wear any makeup to school when I'm in my glasses and my lips are originally colorless .
its horrible to have people walking to you and ask if you're okay or if you're sick just because you're naturally pale,
and there's no way I wear lipstick to college without makeup right ?? It'll be too contrast.
so I found a solutions to that,
it is the Clinique Chubby Stick in number 11 Two ton tomato.
this is a tinted balm that I found out from Chrissy's video,
and it really is very moisturizing at the same time, it gives you a touch of color.

It is also good for coverage as you can see, I have 2 tiny moles on my lower lip as I used to have cracked and chap lips, 
and after applying it, it is still visible but it make it less obvious :)

The next thing I wanna talk about is the Sephora Express Dry Shampoo for hair,
I don't know about you guys, but I have long period classes,
majorities are from 9am-5pm and lunch break in between,
and I stay super super far, so it is almost impossible for me to go home and shower before the second session class of the day,
I absolutely love this,
it is light weight, easy to use and it also give a little bit more volume to our hair.
I'm always afraid to stink, I believe all of us girls are,
so having this with me all the time is to make sure my hair ain't greasy and disgusting,
leaving it a fresh texture, plus, it is only RM29.90
So why not right ?

Not forgetting my recent obsession,
I am sure if you watch beauty blogs a lot, or read beauty blogs a lot,
you would definitely seen this amazing tool before,
it is the Clarisonic Mia 2,
What so amazing about it and what does it do ?
It is a electronic facial wash !
We always cleanse our face using our hands and a lot of times, we wouldn't know whether did we cleanse it properly.
this tool can cleanse our face up to x6 times more cleaner!
It is also water proof so that it doesn't electric shock us while washing our faces.
It comes with a brush header which you have to change every 3 months, a charger, a testing cleanser and a casing to keep it.
At first I was thinking, there aren't any holes on this tool,
how am I going to charge? If you look at the 3rd picture below, the charger is sort of weird looking as well, there isn't a head to plug in to the tool.
So I read the hand book and it said that it is called the pLink charger,
it supposedly just magnetically attached to the handle and once the charger is on, the indicator light will glow in and out to show that it is charging. HOW COOL IS THAT ?

You can purchase this from Sephora, but they are selling it at RM500++
and I personally feel that it is a little bit over priced,
so after reading Bellakuan's blog, she mentioned that she bought hers from www.zenzendream.com and they are selling it at ONLY RM350 NOW !
I order right away.
the promotion will end soon and the price will be increased to the normal market price so, hurry up girls !

this hot pink is only available online because they get the stock from other country, the Sephora in Malaysia only has the lighter baby pink and the other weird colors that I'll never buy.

Another thing that I got from www.zenzendream.com is the perfume atomizer,
I was quite stupid and I went to spend money on perfume miniature that costs a lot,
until I found out about this product, I totally give up on miniatures.
I like to bring miniature out because sometimes, the perfume doesn't really last all day and I just need to touch up a little bit in between,
so bring the full size out is a nono. what if it breaks? My bag will probably smell damn nice for a very long time but I will be sad because there goes my money.
a bottle of EDT, not cheap.
I still need to buy extra miniature some more. -.-
girls are so mahuan.
What this atomizer does is, it is a portable perfume refilled kind of thing,
you can pump the perfume you want inside with a easy method,
and when you're done using it, you can re-pump new fragrance in again!
how convenient hor???
And the color its cute some more.
1. Take off the perfume sprayer cap
2. there's the tube 
3. there's a rubber whole thing underneath the atomizer, 
4. squeeze the tube into the hole *sounds pretty wrong* and pump the perfume into the tube 

Tadaaaaaa <3

Thanks for reading again guys <3
I'll be updating real soon again

Trick or Treat or Partay ?!

Friday, November 8, 2013

Ahh yes, not another typical party post from the short blogger,
YES. feel free to be annoyed.
and FYI to those who always think I'm a regular clubber who's desperately in need of party & alcohol,
no I'm not -.-
Attending events are exceptional .... * I suppose ? *
Sorry for the scary introduction I have here as I've heard of some awful rumors going on about me and its absurd because they mentioned my parents & my boyfriend and I don't see how that's neccasary,
If you have problems with me, you can always leave me a hate mail,
don't bring up to people's parents or boyfriend, I'm pretty sure you yourself wouldn't like it if I were to do that to you ;)
Anyways, I will leave this topic to the next post in details.

This post will be all about the annually trick or treat night,
as we teenagers like to refer to Halloween night.
As Halloween isn't really originated from our country's culture,
we don't really go around trick or treating but we do enjoy the crazily scary costumes,
and for girls,
"Halloween is the only festive season where girls can dress up as slutty as they want  and no one will say anything about it" - Mean Girls

But its a different story in Malaysia ><
Carmen Ngo went along with me as well, and she came over for a "make over" session,
Her boyf, Jack, went as Domo in a Domo t-shirt HAHA!
by the way,
all the pictures below are credited to Baby Layrynn * photoshopped by me :P*  because this time its my turn to forget to put in SD card -.-

My kitty cat Baby C no.2 ;D
HAHAH 
in case you're wondering, 
yes, 
both of the friends that I spend most of my time with is named- Carmen. 
gotta seek for more CarmenS in my life as they are all awesomeeeee <3

This is the best photo of my whole suit because I didn't really have a chance to take a full coordinate for the night
Kitty gone wild ! ;D HAHAHA

Baby Layrynnnnn <3


Ms Kuan <3 

Group shot of MHB ! 

Picture with Ethan ! :D

A group with with Leonard ! He was the one that invited us all :)
*I don't even know why I became lightbulb in the middle of baby Layrynn & her boyf ><*

Girls being girls <3
* from the left *

Fione <3
Shelyn <3

 Groupie ! 

And as for me, 
What is my character for the halloween night ?




After photoshopping still got like 20% alike hahaha
Selene from Underworld aka Kate Beckinsale 
couldn't find a latex suit so I went for the latex corset instead :)

I did dress up in the morning for college too !
as me & a few friends sort of said that it would be fun if we do, and we did ! 
Guess who am I impersonating this time ?
...
Not obvious enough ah?
because of my height right ? -.-

Its Lara Croft :D
I actually think I did a better job for my morning costume than my night 1 :P
just because there's the stupid bag straps that I use as my so called "gears" 

I actually love this shot by Steven

Steven ! 
Oh and guys, if you haven't check out Steven's new production page, 
please do me a favor and view it/like it, 
because he is a really talented student and as a good friend, 
all of us are so proud of him! 
his videos are all so meaningful and totally worth your time viewing ;D

:)

Thank you David for the awesome "movie effect" picture !! 
I loveeeee it ! 


OOTD? 


Anyways, thanks for reading or scrolling through the pictures guys, 
It took me 2 days to finish this post because I actually started writing during midnight and couldn't finish them in time, 
and yet editing the photos is another trouble, 
but I gotta admit that I had fun composing this post and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as me composing it :*

Goodnight.

Nail Bar Penang

Friday, November 1, 2013

Sponsored post

Good news girls !
Nail bar penang is now having promotion for gel nail painting :D
only rm38 !
Nail bar Penang is one of my favorite nail boutiques in penang as the place is really comfortable and the environment is just so relaxing
not to mention the workers there are absolutely friendly as well !
this time, they sponsored me a set of gel manicure and normal nail polished pedicure for me :)
I was so excited as this is actually my first nail-do sponsor ever and before they even sponsor me, I had been there before and absolutely love the service & environment,
really hyped once I receive the good news :D

I chose this simple design because I wanted something clean for the moment, 
And for my toes, I usually choose a more shimmering polish so that it kind of highlights any shoe I wear, especially sandals :)

A closer look of my manicure :)
My pedicure is nothing much special, so I didn't have a clearer pic of it

Look at the soothing environment~
its so warm and just suitable for people that needed a relax + pamper session 

Not to mention the place is extremely clean and tidy.

Nail Bar penang is so far the one and only nail boutique that has the finest and detailed designs, 
one of the worker there is actually my senior from my private school and her art work are fantastic, 
and almost any designs you want, she is able to replicate them ! 
This is done by herself, on her very own nail. 
*picture stolen from chiew wen's instagram :)* 

Any of you girls that are interested, you can always log on to their website or give them a call for inquires, 
Remember to book your time before going there so that you can book the time that you desire :)
all the info's are down there :

Thanks for reading, 
and goodnight guys <3
