Si, mademoiselle.


I came through Suzy's look. Lately I really like her, because she is pretty cute and the after BIG effect.
So I thought of recreating this look in my own way.


I used Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer all over my face together with Bourjois Bio-detox foundation to create a slightly healthy glow.
Topped with ELF Mineral Booster.

Cheek colour is Bourjois blush in Rose D'oro

The lip colour I used is Etude House Lip Tint Chou in #3.

Glow it.

I tried doing the dewy skin look once again with Etude House Golden Ratio Face Glam.

Here is a swatch of the product. 
It is a pink colour with lots of silver shimmer. It is almost like Benefit's High Beam.
The liquid part of the product is very liquidy so it is very very easy to spread. I haven't use the cream part yet.

This is a FOTD with the golden ratio face glam.
I applied the face glam by dapping at the areas the light hits (T-zone, cheekbones)

Product used(for face) :
Botaniqueserie Skin Care Light Moisturizing Make-Up Base
TheFaceShop Lovely Me:Ex Honey BB Cream
Etude House Golden Ratio Face Glam
VOV Baby Cheek in Baby Pink

It makes my face really luminous under the light a actually it is very natural. 
Doesn't make you look like a shimmer ball.

This one I took with my phone. I am loving all the photo apps.

new baby + Lioele

I am gonna announce that a got a new baby.

It is the Samsung Galaxy Note. I have been loving this baby so much since I got it.
Now I can have instagram and all the nice phone apps.

Just a small thing I got with my giftcard from Lioele. My giftcard is gonna expire so I thought I might as well get something instead of letting the money go. It is pretty wasteful.

Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream.
The packaging of Lioele is very princessy and girly.

It comes in a very sturdy pump tube packaging.
It is priced at RM69.90 for 50ml.

On 1st-15th August, Etude House is having 40% off on Shini Star, Dear My, Love Homme, Skin Malgeum, Moistful collection.

I am still thinking what should I get from Shini Star and Dear My collection.
I am eying at the Dear My Blooming Lip Talk lipsticks.

Wanna be sweet??

I visit Etude House so frequently they should just honour me as their VIP customer.
I wish Etude House would have customer loyalty programmes, imagine all the points I could just earn.
Anyway, here's a Etude House haul.

Etude House has always drawn me with their super cute packaging and they always have sales.

Etude House mask, these are RM15 for 5 pieces.
I like Etude House mask, they are cheap and they work well, for me.

Etude House Yogurt and Honey wash off mask.
I never tried these before, the cute packaging drawn me in and they were on sale for 2 for RM15. Why not jump the bandwagon and try it.

Samples of the Sun BB that they have given me.
I have a lot of samples from Etude House but they are just in my room somewhere. There was once they gave me a whole bath set.

This is something I have eying for quite a long time. I have their older version of volumer.
It works pretty well for me because my skin isn't too oily, so I don't look like a frying pan after hours.

This is their new Nymph Aura Volumer in #3
It is more expensive than their older two volumer. I had the #1 Pure.
The consistency of this is less thick and sticky than #1.

The new one comes with their motto "Wanna be Sweet? Play Etude!"

I got this for RM72 with some change after discount. Pretty pricey.

Comes in a pretty white with some pink iridescent bottle with a pump.

Isetan haul - Korean Beauty Products.

This haul was done about a week ago, it just didn't post about it.
I got all of this from Isetan when they were doing an offer on Korean cosmetics. 

Holika Holika masks.
I got all of these for just RM20. 10 masks for RM20, isn't that such a steal. 
If I do not get these, I might never meet such an offer again. 
It comes with 2 Vitamin C masks, 2 Coenzyme Q10 masks, 2 Hyarulonic acid masks, 2 hand masks and 2 foot masks.

TheFaceShop Raspberry Root Sleeping Mask.
This was on buy one get another 50% off. I swear by this sleeping mask, I just have to get backups. 
One of the best sleeping masks I ever used.

Holika Holika Petit BB Cream.
I got this also on buy one get another 50% off. I got one in Shimmering (Pink) and Watery (Green).

I tried the Watery version, It does a great job in correcting skin tone.
The coverage is light-medium so I doesn't cover blemishes or redness that well. If you good skin, this BB cream is worth a go!
The lasting power is average, I went out for about 4-5 hours without being exposed to the sun, I didn't sweat, the BB cream stayed on. I do not know how this BB cream would stay under sweat and humidity.

Glowy days.

This has really became my new circle lens love. I will keep repurchasing this design.
I am into natural lens designs nowadays so this appeals to me a lot. 

Eyeshadow today is ELF studio cream eyeshadow in Dawn. This fella doesn't budge at all. Such a good USD3 cream eyeshadow. Loving it.
Started using my Maybelline pencil eyeliner, so far didn't smudge but I don't apply it in the waterline, that's probably why. 


I added something new to my base makeup routine today. 
I used the Etude House Nymph Aura Volumer to achieve a celebrity dewy skin look. 
Does my skin look more glowy and dewy. In pictures it looks like my face is glowing a little.
I feel like there isn't much difference because I applied too little volumer, I think I should put more volumer the next time, instead of 1:3 ratio, i think i used 1:5(?) ratio. 

A lot complained this volumer is too heavy and oily but I didn't feel it is oily or heavy, maybe because my skin isn't very oily, only my nose turns kinda oily the rest of my face is just pretty dry.

I am gonna try it once again.

polka dotsies.

Today I went out karaok-ing with my college besties. I has been awhile since I met some of them.
I really miss the times with them.

Just posting an EOTD.

I have been in love with TheDollyEye Circle Brown lens. Best natural lens ever, blends with my eye colour so well.
I tried a new eyeshadow today, Max Factor's eyeshadow in Walnut which I bought in Moscow.
The colour is a warm chocolate brown. It's pretty on its own.


Got myself to try the Holika Holika Watery Petit BB Cream.
The colour is a fair beige. Suits NC15-25 the best.
The BB cream had light to medium coverage. It improves skin tone very well.
It has a very nice floral frangrance. I love the scent a lot.

A very tiny haul from Watsons. They were having a buy one get another 50% off on selected sheet masks.
So I picked out the mask I wanted to try out the most, I.myss mask from Korea.
The spoke people from the masks are 2AM, one of my friend really likes one of the members ^.^;;
Korean brands love to find idols to endorse their product.

One more thing I got is a Maybelline eyeliner. For days I am so lazy to use a gel eyeliner. Pencil eyeliner is faster.

I finally jumped on the bandwagon. I used to hear many rave reviews about this product. I still being quite young, I never paid any attention to this product but of late everybody (Asians) seems to be crazy about V-shape face line.
It is highly sought after and most celebrities have this pretty V-shape small shape. Big jaw line is definitely not attractive, in Asia atleast. 

Let me introduce to you Bio-essence Face Lifting Cream with ATP.

It promises to achieve a V-shape line face after use. 

I don't know it works yet because I have been using this for about 3-4 days but I felt like it sort of like firmed my face a little already.
I need to use more before I get give a definite review.

For 40g of product, this is a pretty expensive drugstore product. Without discount it is priced at RM105 or so but after discount, I got mine for about RM74 at Watsons (much cheaper than Guardian).

Another thing I got off Watsons is Sophie Monk masks. It was on sale. 
Buy one get 50% off.

Sophie Monk mask are good in lifting. 
I got the Whitening and Pore minimizing.

Quiet Monday..

Opened another vial of contact lens, this time is the Super Barbie Hybrid Brown.

It comes in a cute box packaging like this. Eventhough I bought Super Barbie line, I am not sure why the box is Be.Luxury line but the lens inside is Super Barbie's.

The lens in the vial.

The lens in the contact lens case.

I used to own a contact lens that has almost the same design as this one, it was the Fynale brand lens. I just threw them away few days ago because it was nearing expiration date.
This design I love it very much. It looks super light but actually when you have it on, it is super natural. It almost doesn't enlarge the eyes but it does change the colour of the eyes.

EOTD with Super Barbie Hybrid Brown lens

It is changes the colour of the eyes naturally.
Also, today I kinda switch up my eye makeup routine by using a silver blue eyeliner at the lower lashline and green eyeshadow.

Comfort wise. This lens is very comfortable like most Super Barbie lens. I like Super Barbie's Hybrid compared to Fynale's because the lens is much softer thus more comfortable.

A mini mail I got today with three tiny tubs of foundation.
I got this because the seller wanted to clear the old packaging's stock, and she was letting it go them for super cheap at RM1.

Not to be confused with the German brand Essence. This Essence is from Taiwan.
Essence Shinning Dream Foundation Mousse.

It comes in a very tiny amount of 10g.

I tried this foundation today. I feel like it more like a tinted moisturizer than foundation. It is super light and coverage is very sheer.
I think I won't use this often, maybe on days I don't feel like putting makeup but then I will reach out to my BB creams when I have those feels.
I really don't know what I will do with this foundation.

sweet eyes.

Night market walks always end up sweet. You can usually get lots of food and stuffs for cheap in a night market.

This time I am back with false eyelashes from the night market for cheap.
I got three boxes. 

All together three boxes were RM23 (USD7.30)

The boxes with heart shape were RM10 each and the other one is RM3.

The lashes design for the box with heart shape are my favourite. They are just so natural yet gorgeous.
The number for this design is #217.
There are EOTD with the lashes here and here.

I haven't tried this design but it looks really natural too.

Tea Tree.

Finally I got my hands to some Naruko products. I have been eying on Naruko prducts for a long time after hearing good review from makeup gurus.

I finally jumped on the bandwagon when I realize that my skin condition hasn't been too good of late and I really wanna improve my skin condition. 

So I bought two items from the tea tree range.

I got the toner and the serum.

The toner has a volume of 150ml which is a generous amount and the serum comes in 40ml.

This is how the packaging looks, it comes in a purple bottle.
The smell of the products are a little minty with a strong tea tree scent. 

So far I really love the products especially the serum. The texture is super light and really easily adsorbed. Makes application easy.
I haven't been breaking out these few days, I don't know is it because of these products or few days before it was the time of the month then now everything calmed down.

I have to use it longer to see whether it works but anyway I love it.

lace it up.

This is a lens I purchased quite a long while ago from a preorder. The preorder gave me chance to purchase lenses at a very low price thus I got about 10 pairs of lenses and most of them I haven't try them.

Super Barbie Crystal Nudy in Grey

This is how it looks in the contact lens case.
The diameter of the lens is 16mm.

This is how it looks on the eye under artificial lighting.
Under natural lighting the grey isn't very visible but you can still tell that there's lens and the eyes look slightly greyish.

This is a beautiful design, it is not too overpowering and it is subtle in its own ways.
It doesn't have a crazy design going on. It can be a daily use circle lens.

Comfort wise, it is comfortable as long the wear doesn't exceed 6 hours after that it will feel a little dry, eye drops are needed.

FOTD with the lens
My lips are a little weird here but who cares.

Anyway, went to watch Batman today. Really recommend it, I enjoyed the movie overall.
Also, today Isetan was having a great sale on lots of things, gonna post a haul soon.

Thursday, July 19, 2012


I just received this lens a day ago. I have been finding for a lens like this high and low but most of the sellers were out of stock with brown lens. I was lucky to have found this seller who still holds these brown lens.

TheDollyEye Hyper Circle Brown.
This lens is very natural at an enhancing diameter of 14.2mm. The design is very subtle.

This is how the lens look in the contact lens case.

I love how it looks on the eyes. It is so subtle and natural. It adds some definition to the eye to make the eye brighter and look more awake.
It is a perfect lens for everyday use.
Comfort, it is very comfortable as long it isn't worn more than 6 hours. After 6 hours, there might be some dryness.

I would definitely repurchase this lens and wear it all over and over again. I think I just fell in love with this lens and the design.

On the side note, I am also gonna emphasize how much I love this false eyelashes. It is Taiwanese handmade eyelashes #217.
I am gonna post a haul(?) on these eyelashes.

FOTD with this lens
See how natural the look turned out to be. I love it.

Wednesday loot - Skin79 BB Cream.

The secret to Asian beauty- BB creams.
I swear by BB creams. They make your skin look so flawless while application is fuss-free. Bonus, they always come with good stuffs claiming to whiten, improve wrinkle, UV protection. UV protection is a must for me no matter I am in a hot climate or cold climate.

My Skin79 BB cream arrived yesterday.
The seller I got from gets all her stock from Korea, besides this Skin79 BB creams, she sells a lot of other Skin79 products, as long anything you want from Skin79, she will pre-order them for you from Skin79. She only holds ready stock for their makeup line.

She wasn't the cheapest seller but based on her customer reviews and her shop appearance, I trust this seller. She gave me quite a good price for two BB creams and some extra gifts (shall show it later!)
Her customer service is really good, she is prompt in answering my mails and she shipped it out really fast. I banked in the night before and in the morning, she already shipped it out to me. 

I bought for around USD13.60 per bottle of 40g including shipping.

After checking it out I am 100% sure my BB creams are authentic. 

I ordered one hot pink and vip gold.

This is how the top of the hot pink box looks like. It has a big red circle.

The Ingredient list. My Hot Pink box came a little jacked up, I don't mind. The product inside is fine.
On the top right corner it now comes with a QR code.

The tear line behind the box, it is to open up the box because there are other languages translation of BB cream description.

The security sticker.

Three languages translation of the BB cream description. Comes in Japanese, Chinese and English.

Security sticker on the gold bottle.

Tear line at the back too.

Description inside comes with three languages.

Ingredient list, top right has a QR code.

The bottles.
As you can see the new hot pink says "wrinkle improvement" instead of "wrinkle free". Mine is manufactured this year, around end of February.
Also now the bottles comes with ridges at the top.

The free gifts from the seller.

Mini Princess masks.

Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase.
