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 »

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 »

It’s something like Favourites, except I might not like them even though I’ve been using them regularly. Yup, sounds about right. I’ve been talking about base products quite regularly lately,… Read more »

    Review: Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette

    Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette is one of Dior’s latest offerings here. It was only launched nationwide this month and I think it was initially available at limited boutiques. It is an eye candy for sure, and who needs another neutral palette? I surely don’t, but my brain knows no logic… Read more »

    My Experience with ND-YAG Laser Treatments

    Yes, I did it. I mainly have a huge dissatisfaction with my freckles (while I know many of you think they’re cute). I don’t have much problems with my skin since I hit 35 but it’s those pesky freckles which got darker after each pregnancy. No skincare I’ve tried could lighten them, let alone get… Read more »

    Review: La Mer Reparative SkinTint SPF30

    I haven’t tried any coloured products from La Mer before. I know they had something called Fluid Tint a few years back which was discontinued. I was eager to try, and something called skin tint is very appropriate. I’d be disappointed if La Mer went down the alphabet line, you know. So, I was happy… Read more »

    Beauty Influencer’s Sunday Column Volume 8: Current Skincare Routine

    Today, we’re talking about something close to my heart. Skincare. My mother started me on skincare since I was 16. Something very basic like cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I didn’t realize the importance of it, until I started working. I’m never without my sunscreen and I apply eye cream every morning and night without fail…. Read more »

    ** Warning, lengthy post ** Dior released its Diorskin Star late last year, and in less than a year, there’s another new foundation. I’m very sure you’ve already heard of it by now – nearly every blog I read has mentioned or reviewed this. It’s the Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation (RM191 / 30ml). Accompanying its… Read more »

    I decided to add a new ‘series’ on the blog. Let’s just call it On Rotation, since I’ll be talking about products I’ve been using regularly. Something like current favourites which I always fail to do! While I feature a fair bit of product reviews here, I like to stick to a handful of products for some… Read more »
