All About The Eyes with Clinique

There are 4 items I need to show you and I’m nuts about 2 of them. Like, I LOVE IT nuts. So, I want to tell you about them first. Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse (RM65) 24-hour long-wearing brow mousse is my absolute favourite. It tints, tames, fills in even my sparse brows. I never thought… Read more »

Toning Light

Review: Dr Jart+ V7 Toning Light

This is a product I thought would be interesting – and confusing. I first thought it was skincare, but after testing, it’s more like a face primer which is more makeup than anything else. Then again, there are skincare benefits like brightening and collagen inducing, but many new generation makeup nowadays are hybrids. So, I’m… Read more »

Some Clinique Skincare I’ve Been Enjoying, and One Not So Much

I’ve been meaning to put up a few posts but I could never get the chance to take photos and edit them. That’s the part that consumes the most time for me. So one day, I just took an hour off babysitting, and took some much needed photos when the sun was cooperating. Now, I… Read more »

Review: Esqido False Lashes in Unforgettable

I’m wearing mink coat on my lashes, yo! Hahaha! Backstory – I hardly wear false lashes. I love the idea of them, especially on my fine and sparse lashes, and I have a few of them in my drawer for special occasions but those occasions are far and few between. Also, my inexperience in false… Read more »

37 Rounds

Happy birthday to me! I am 37 years old today. Wow. If I live until 74, I’m smack at the midpoint of my life at the moment. Thinking back, it’s also funny how priorities changed. My 20-year-old self had NO idea. LOL! If you noticed, my blog posts have been sporadic and I have a… Read more »

Fitness Check In #3

Know when to rest. Listen to your body. That’s what I’ve learned from the past couple of months. I’ve been training pretty hard for a while, 6 days a week, crazy intense cardio (HIIT and Tabata), crazy heavy lifting, and the improvement to my strength and stamina kept me going. I was hooked! Then, maybe… Read more »

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion Swatches

Do you remember my post on the new Estee Lauder liquid lip potion in Cold Fire? It’s here if you haven’t read it. There are 12 shades available in Malaysia, and I managed to get the swatches. However, Naughty Naive is missing from the swatch, so here are 11 swatches in total.      … Read more »

Sunday Stash Shopping #52: Benefit Bossy

I was de-cluttering and found an old eye shadow I bought because of Lisa Eldridge. She seems to have the ability to make me buy all sorts of things I don’t need. Anyone here with the same problem? I’m much better now though. This is one of the products she said she loved on eye… Read more »

Koyudo Fu Pa

Review: Koyudo Fupa 01, 02, 14

Aren’t these little kabukis cute? I saw plenty of these on Instagram (evil!) and got really curious. I was directed to CD Japan if I was interested, and that was where it started and ended. I have here 3 fupas. 01 (5520 yen) is a blush brush, 02 (4320 yen) a foundation brush (both goat… Read more »

    Review: Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense in Intense Chocolate is Intensely Annoying

    When it comes to eye pencils, I like mine to be retractable. Takes the sharpening out of the equation. I also like my liners to be smudge proof and humidity proof. I have a lot of black liners, so I thought I’d go for brown. I swatched this brown and I immediately fell in love.  … Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #50: By Terry Ombre Blackstar Misty Rock

    Instead of doing a review on this cream shadow in a stick, the By Terry Misty Rock, I thought I’d just use it for this stash shopping post. It took me a while to understand this product. There is a much longer setting time compared to Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown. You can play around… Read more »

    On Rotation: Sunscreens

    Have I mentioned before that I don’t go out of the house without sunscreen on my face at least? Have I also mentioned before that I use sunscreen even when it’s cloudy or there’s thunderstorm? I also apply sunscreen on my children, hoping it will instill a habit in them. Currently, I have 4 sunscreens… Read more »

    Importing Cosmetics To Malaysia: Your Risk

    I thought I want to share with you my recent experience with purchasing cosmetics online. The buying experience was great, but things went downhill as the package reached Malaysian shores. Let me just tell you that I’ve been purchasing cosmetics online, from makeup to skincare, and I’ve never had any problems getting them delivered to… Read more »

    Review: Melvita Argan+ Face Oil

    I never had much luck with face oils. I tried just a couple, and then I gave up. I really didn’t want to try again just in case I break out unnecessarily. I can live without face oils, but I can’t live with breakouts, thank you very much. I first heard of argan oil from a… Read more »

    Review: Giorgio Armani Eye Tints Rose Ashes and Senso

    Giorgio Armani Eye Tints. I read about them everywhere a while back and I had my eye on Senso immediately. I also wanted a lighter shade, and Rose Ashes looked interesting with flashes of pink, purple and fuchsia pearls so I got that too. I bought them sight unseen, since I could only get them… Read more »

    Sunday Stash Shopping #49 : Tom Ford Naked Bronze

    I debated with myself for a long time whether or not I wanted to get the Tom Ford Naked Bronze (LE). It’s not available where I live, so I had to get someone to help me get it, and it’s expensive. I only have one item from Tom Ford, that is the Cocoa Mirage palette,… Read more »
