Worthy Book Ladies Edition [Review]

As a typical Malaysian, I too, am a sucker for vouchers & discounts. Honestly, I am the type of person will just grab it even when I have no idea what the voucher is for. If you have heard of the show "Extreme Couponing" on TLC Astro, you should know that the people in the ang moh country have "real" vouchers/coupon. They get real discounts or benefits, not something that you can find in Malaysia. Just like the consumer, the people who sells the products are just as cheapo.

Thanks to the amazing technology and wide sources of high-speed internet, I find myself heavily rely on websites for good deals. Literally, I'm a pycho for things like Groupon, Living Social, MyDeal, MilkaDeal, Lelong Newsletter, Reebonz and many more. You will probably be wondering, don't they clog, or shall I say SPAM your email? Yes, most definitely! And I have no plans to defend or provide any justification on this matter because I admit that I have a serious problem with voluntarily sign-up for newsletters. I put the blame on being a gen-Y baby because I have FOMO syndrome! I have the fear of missing out on good deals and good discounts, I get agitated when I hear about other people finding good deals but I didn't. The best part is, for the things that I may not need or I may not even buy. I just like the idea of knowing that there was a good discount for that particular item.

So when I got my hands on Worthy Book (the ultimate discount/voucher booklet), it felt as if a baby was dropped by a crane into my physical mailbox. I was definitely excited to receive it, especially when I know it is the women's edition where all you will find is beauty &  fashion.

Vanity Trove x Avene Pink Carpet Beauty Workshop [Event + Review]

Avene, from nature for the perfect care of sensitive skin. 

If there is one thing I've learned from these few years of beauty blogging, it will be understanding that my skin is problematic but not overly sensitive. Just because you have a bit of redness and product tingles on your face upon application, it doesn't mean that you should label your skin as sensitive. There are people out there suffering from real hyper sensitive skin conditions. So spare your tears cause nobody is going to be bothered of your mild skin sensitivity issues.

Vanity Trove , a beauty box company invited me to join a fun workshop with Avene. For a person who is no stranger to this brand, I kind of knew what was going to happen. Few days before the event, I kept day-dreaming of how I will lavishly drown my face in that Thermal Spring Water! The skin on my face is extremely parched and wants to be a spoiled brat to enjoy the finest H2O on earth.

If I have a list of "Brands that have the best samples", Avene will be in that invisible list that I wrote. Most of their tiny samples are in bottles and not sachets! Making it so much more travel friendly and hygienic. I dislike sachets samples because they are going to be nakedly exposed to air and come on, you should know we do not have the cleanest air in Malaysia.

Korean Eyebags Trend [Thoughts]

Please help me to understand what is with this new eyebags trend. I understand that it looks cute & young for some people, especially celebrities [subjected to Korean Celebs only, angmoh can't pull this trend off] just because they look good in almost anything but we can't say that "woohoo, they are doing it so I'm doing it" kind of shenanigans. Please la, it may not suite your face type okay, most of us bourgeois have face problems.

I'm extremely in awe when I see of such products being produce to encourage such trends. Interesting fact of demand and supply. To me, when I see pictures such as on top, I will still say "she is damn pretty but her eyebags are obvious, maybe she needs to de-puff her eyebags."

Loreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick in Bed of Roses [Review]

Play up you glamorous side and transform your look instantly with new sexy shades. 

Old picture
This picture is rather scary, feels like I'm a grandchildren of myself looking at my grandmother when she was younger. Lols #blamethefilters

Loreal is trying to market this new lipstick as a luxurious lip-must-have with a revamped and rather pretty gold & matte exterior. In a glance, yeah, it does look expensive and classy. It would be epic for me to pretend dropping my bag with everything falling on the floor just to show people my new gold packaged lipstick. Wow......

Maybeline The Magnum "Cat Eyes" Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara [Review]

Get the fullest cat eyes look with fiercely feminine lashes!

Maybeline New York wants you to have the fiercest cat eyes look where lashes are full and super-spiky. This mascara is all about giving your lashes a fiercely feminine treatment so lashes will look so lush and fabulous, with volume so intense and wild. All this with just one stroke of the brush! 

Really? Super-spiky lashes? I don't want to poke my boyfriend when kissing him D:  Plus, can you see if the leopard mascot for this mascara below has any sort of lashes at all? Maybe we should put some mascara on it to make it more obvious.

KATE Makeup Workshop with Mikiya Hirai san from Japan for Office Look to Party Look [Event]

No More Rules
with KATE Cosmetics

I was fortunate to have a private session with Hirai san from Japan along with many other beautiful ladies at the KATE Beauty Workshop. I have no idea who he is but I guess I'm obligated to say something nice to show some gratitude towards him for flying all the way to Malaysia just to give a bunch of us ladies whom most of the time are not paying attention during his tutoring class. #TruthHurts

Start my Birth-day with a Wish :)


Alright, the cat's out of the bag. IT's MY BIRTHDAY! Hello 23, may life gets better and better! So far is going good, in the midst of changing career path, it was God's blessing for providing the opportunity. Hallelujah!

I have been wanting a new camera for the longest time and I have my eyes fixed on one particular model since forever! I could never get my hands on it because it is rather pricey and nobody to sponsor :( It's the freakishly annoying Canon 650D, this beauty caught my eyes since the very first time I laid my eyes on her. She's so sexy till I can't help myself from sighing everytime I get close to her by the glass panel at the Canon or camera shop. Oh how I wish I own her.

PeriPera Tint Water [Review] Works like Juice....

Packager suckers STOP here and DON'T GO on reading because I bet by the end of this blogpost you will just want to run out and get one of these freakishly cool baby. 

I've heard so much about the Benefit Benetint but I've never reach out to them because they are just insanely expensive for an average working gal like me. I don't see why I should spend so much on cosmetics, I would rather pay more for skincare. I wouldn't exactly say this PeriPera Tint Water is cheap but it wasn't burning a hole in my pocket either. I got it at RM49++ if I'm not mistaken at Watson because I was unfortunately lured by their remarkably darling packaging of unbalanced eyes to mouth to head to body proportion. Aren't they a cutie? :D

Sunplay SPF 75 PA++ Watery Cool Body Mist Sunblock [Review]

3 Words:

I was preparing for Redang and found out that I'm running low on sunscreen. Either that or my hands got itchy just wanted to try this freaking cool looking product. Seriously brands out there if you are reading this, I'm not going to lie, it is super easy to trap us in buying your goods. You can start with packaging and claims stated on your products.

Acne treatments that WORKs for me!

I never had any serious issue with pimples when I was growing up as a teen. Even in college, everything was great until probably about 2 years back, it all started to pop up like corns on my forehead. It was bad and I super hated it!

I wasn't sure if it was a product that I use or just hormonal changes and I am destine to have adult acne. I went for facial but didn't really work to clear them because it wasn't targeting my acne. It was so embarrassing till I almost opted for Dr.Ko skin specialist but others whom went through a whole lot worst than I did said mine is just minor burst, why not try the pharmacist? So I did and gotten a tube of topical treatment call Tidact (no pictures here) used it for a while.... and it works... it reduces my pimple flares. At one point it was almost all gone, I have my clear skin again. When I stopped, it was all coming back to me like they never left.

When I started working, I finally had the cash to get my face cared by a proper acne facialist. It helped to reduce most of it but still there are bumps living on my face which seemed super comfortable and not going anywhere. It was worsts that scars because I have no way to cover them. So freaking annoyed.
