My SK-II thoughts after 3 months

Girl holding glass bottle

A quick recap for those who have just joined us in my journey with SK-II. I’ve been using the Pitera Essence Trial Kit since January 2014. This is my first time trying the much raved miracle water, so you can imagine how excited I was. A new year, a new me!

Travel Light with KOSE SEKKISEI Lotion Mask

KOSE is back with a TREAT!

I remember seeing that iconic blue bottle on my mom's vanity desk back in the days when I still a kid. It's time to follow her footstep and fall in love with these easy on-the-go KOSE SEKKISEI Lotion Mask Pack. It's a lotion for beautiful, hydrated skin that prevents dullness and roughness caused by dryness in the skin.

Blindfold Dining with Living Social

girl and vintage car

Funny thing, I was somewhat dressed for the location. The Elizabeth's Blind Date Blindfold Dining with Living Social held in one of the most decorated with Chinese cultured place I have ever seen The Grand Shanghai in Setiawalk is built based on the original mid 30's streets of Shanghai, decorated with wax figures, antique cars and trishaws. We were also provided with a complimentary return trip to and from the dining venue, provided by Uber Malaysia.

Loreal Blackbuster Super Liner [Review]

black eyeliner

Big Black Eyeliner

Till now, I still can't get over the fact that it looks like a marker pen. I love the packaging, it's even prettier than a regular marker pen. The black, gold and the font gels together really well. When you open the cap, you can't help it but to get confused and wondering if this is really an eyeliner.

Unfortunately, as much as I want to love this product. It's a tough product to use. Not at all suitable for beginners. The idea of this liner is for those interested to do a bold eyeliner, thus, obviously it's not meant for making that precise, thin line that most of us are used to.

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation

Seriously, nobody else can love this more than me! This foundation is the BOMB! The colour 220 Nude, fits me like a perfect second skin. It's such a high coverage, thick textured cream that conceals all my imperfections. Ahhhhh... speechless for this amazing thing in a heavy pot. 

Do it right, keep it tight!

Yoga and the girls

I feel that it's quite true that people these days expect a lot from a woman. We are expected to be good at being a daughter, wife, girlfriend, mother, employee, employer, friend and etc. All these came about because we wanted to be equal with men. To be frank, I really don't know how do a superwoman these days juggles between being awesome at her work and being a fantastic mother while still able to somehow find a social life in between those two lives. 

When things are tough in the real world, I guess it is really important to know your self-worth and to truly love yourself before you can think about others. That includes eat well, sleep well, exercise, pamper yourself and go crazy during sale season.

Eyes, Lips and my Hair.

girl with natural makeup look

If you don't know already, I'm a very, very minimal makeup and hair person. I love to own tons of makeup but if you see me in person, I don't wear them a lot. Is not because I don't want to play with them, I'm just rushing most of the time and I'm too lazy to wake up 5am in the morning to get ready. Trust me, I'd love to doll up everyday with my hair curled but I need my sleep so I can last the day through work and social life. 

I understand fully why some people say is hard to juggle work and blogging. I used to think that it's easy when I was in varsity, especially when I though being in a similar field should allow me to cut a few corners. Unfortunately, that's not the case. 

Because I'm so passionate at my work (Beauty & Fashion writing), I'm so determined to make sure (or at least try) all my pages turn out well. Monday to Friday, non-stop scheduling, events, shoot, write, checking, interview and etc. When it comes to the weekends, I hide in my room to work on my blog and youtube which includes taking pictures, videos, editing and writing. I don't want to be anti-social but most of the time I pray for a clear weekend schedule just so that I can focus on this, and sleep. 

Being an on-the-go working lady, I need a quick solution to a fresh face. Here's are my three trusty products that never fail me for that instant "I'm Ready!" look.

A Date with Yu Heng & Freshel!

Girl and skincare
Isn't she lovely?

It was super up close and personal with Yu Heng's skincare routine. She is have been using the whitening range for a few months now and she seem to really love the lotion. She even use it as a mask by soaking it with a paper mask. One tip that she gave for skincare is to use it generously, which I agree because some products works well if you are not stingy with it.

Lat's talk Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment.

eye cream

I immediately put this into my list of favourite items when I heard 'Maracuja' just because I've seen so many Beauty Gurus on YouTube raving about the Maracuja Oil that I've yet to try. I just assumed that this is going to be bloody amazing. 

I'm still not too sure about this after using it for about a month. I like it but didn't really completely fallen in love with this. It felt like just another eye cream for me to maintain my under eye area.
