Beauty Favourites | January

Sunday 31 January 2016
Hello, beautiful people! How's your weekend so far? Mine's not so great as after doing some work around the house this morning, I needed to rush to the city to meet several clients and that's something I don't like doing especially when I've made plans to attend my garden... and of course, I was just taking some photos for review before the text came into my phone. Totally ruined my mood~ 

But still, I decided to move on with the plan even though it's almost 6 in the morning (I just got up and felt so determined to do this post as I have been planning, doing the drafts, took photos... and now I have 3 shots of coffee on hand... Let's get right into it~

Beauty Haul | Etude House

Saturday 30 January 2016
There are SO many sales going on especially few weeks before Chinese New Year and I just can't help my self to do some shopping and I swear to God that it all started merely with wanting to get a new mascara.

I have to say, I got some of these items from local Etude House stores here in Malaysia while some other products from stores in Seoul via personal shoppers. 

Beauty Haul | Sephora

Thursday 28 January 2016
Without realizing, January is about to end. WHAT? Feels like it's only been few days since we celebrated the New Year i.e. New Year shopping and to be honest, for beauty, I didn't really get a lot of things as all I've been doing throughout 2015 was finishing my beauty hauls from 2014. Yep! That much! ~not proud of it!

As I decided to be on No-Buy ban for skincare throughout the year, I started to get some makeup instead. Truth is, I'm not really that impressed with many things for Korean makeup items so for the past 2 years, I didn't really get much of stuffs apart from base products which not a lot of them actually being used throughout the time I own them as I'm quite tanned to begin with (talk about limited BB cream shades) so not a lot of Korean makeup items that are suitable to my skin tone.

Hence, begin my journey in Sephora. 

I first mentioned my first purchase from Sephora back in 2014 where I purchased several NYX products and boy, I've been doing lots of research on products available at the store since then. 

The thing about stuffs sold at Sephora is, it's easy to find reviews on YouTube and blogs. Though there are many other brands are not carried by Sephora Malaysia, there are still lots of products that are fun to try (which is awesome by the way) at the store and doing swatches on my lips, face and body are like a habit whenever I'm in Sephora. Do you know that you can actually bring (or just buy at the travel section) pots to sample the products like foundation and whatnot? Though I usually just ask any available makeup artist to just do a demo on me, have you done that personally? Let me know. 

So yeah~ here I want to talk about the stuffs I got for the past year (it's a long period, I know!) from Sephora Malaysia.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme in J'Adore | RM100

Though NARS is my first high-end makeup brand ever, I couldn't really get my hands on any of the products after I came back to Sabah and that's how Marc Jacobs came into the picture. Huh? Why so dramatic?? LOL But that's the ultimate truth. Why can't NARS have a pop-up store here in Imago? I really really in love with Le Marc lipstick formulation, totally comparable to my NARS Anita and as both came in black and sleek cases, I now love both of them equally. :D

Marc Jacobs (P)outliner in Prime Rose | RM85

After discovering lip liners from Essence, I kept asking myself, why in heaven did I get this? But honestly, Essence lip liners are quite drying my lips especially when I do that Kylie lips thing but I could totally replace my lipsticks and use this lip liner on my whole lips instead. It's quite buttery for me and not drying though I need to use a lot every time I wanna do whole lips thing so for now, I'm sticking to its original function as lip liner. It also can really go with any lipstick colour I have. 

Review | Mediheal x LINE Friends E.G.T Time Tox Ampoule Mask

Tuesday 26 January 2016

I think 2016 is gonna be a year when I'm going to start to integrate anti-aging, anti-wrinkle or all sorts of aging-fighting products into my skincare routine and I actually don't know where to start so I just did what I usually do when I want to try new kinds of products or from a certain brand. It's such a happiness that I encountered a brand called Mediheal and I'm glad as the first few products I've tried are just great. 

If you didn't know Mediheal, it's a brand founded in a prestigious medical beauty school in Seoul University, Korea. So far they have released several types of sheet masks focusing various skin issues like lack of moisture, dullness and and of course, aging skin. Though they don't have official English website, you can check out the Hong Kong brand website as all the contents are in English here

Blogger Mail | Major B

Sunday 24 January 2016

Hello, lovely people! How's your Sunday so far? Mine is great! Just finished doing laundry and cleaning up the kitchen~ haha sorry for blabbing away like this! :p

If you noticed, this post was part of the previous post but I decided to separate them and give deeper insight on unboxing the box I received from Major B.

Anyway, let's go right into it!

So last week, if you saw my Instagram, I received a package from Major B. Yay~ 

The design of the box is so pretty! The colour is minty green and it does look like one of those box you get from Korean online shops or gift box at Korean stores. Yep, they're known for soft or pastel colours which are sooooo appealing to my eyes. The box also so sturdy that it didn't even changed its shape during delivery process well, thanks to the outer bubble wrap and plastic cover! I'm definitely gonna put this box a lot of use later on. Hehe

Just look at how the box 'greet' me!! Happiness unlocked, indeed! I'm so in love~ It feels like as if the online store being brought to life with that continuous use of that mint green colour from the online store to the beauty box. 

As you can see above, these are the items sent to me. ^_______^ 

The theme: Moisturising, brightening and anti-aging products! Now, let's get into details. I'll make sure to update these with links when they're all available in the store.

Online Shopping | Major B

Sunday 17 January 2016
Hello, beautiful people! What a lovely Sunday it is! Honestly, I've been planning to update my blog this weekend but yesterday was a bit chaotic in our house as we just finished doing a minor renovation on our backyard plus I had to attend a small occasion next door so right after I was done with yesterday, it was like 8 p.m. and I was already turning my lights off. 

Anyway, this morning I woke up with several things on my mind and one of it is to keep my promise to my Instagram followers which is to update you guys about this new online store that was launched like last week so it's still new, but in my opinion, worth to check out.

Review | Innisfree Long Wear Cushion in No. 23 and No. 31

Saturday 16 January 2016
I have to admit, if you saw my Instagram photo today, you'll know that I'm officially a cushion foundation addict. I've been practicing my skills on applying liquid foundations but there are days I'm on a hurry and can only afford to apply one thing before going out. Well, I can literally applying some lipstick while putting on my shoes so that doesn't count. haha

My first cushion foundation is from Etude House and the next ones are either from the Laneige, TheFaceShop, and of course, Innisfree. My main focus when it comes to my base makeup are usually sebum-control, matte finish and doesn't oxidise so much that my face either turned ashy or look orange.
