happy birthday

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 »

Do Certain Lip Colors Make You Look More Youthful or More Mature?

My mom always says that red lips age a person. She prefers sheer nudes but I always think brighter colors make a person look more lively, more cheerful. Bright lips instantly perk up a woman’s complexion and I always tell my mom she looks so much better with them on. She, on the other hand, thinks it’s… Read more »

Sunday Stash Shopping #51: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion in Cold Fire

Estee Lauder will launch a new line of lip lacquers next month, called the Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion (RM98) and I thought I’d let you know about it here, together with my stash shopping post. I’ll be putting up an FOTD using it anyway, so why not. A plain review is boring anyway,… Read more »

Review: Biotherm Biosource Cleansing Balm and Exfoliating Gelee

I’m having a hard time churning out reviews, because I’ve been feeling uninspired. I feel bored when I have to review average or mediocre things, and while I do not guarantee reviews for products sent, I still feel responsible and obliged to do one. This review, however, is not an obligation, because I really want… 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 »

    Review: Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation, Powder and Loose Powder

    ** 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 »

    On Rotation: Face Brushes

    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 »

    Do you remember how I raved about the Biotherm Life Plankton Essence? It immediately put Biotherm on my radar! Today, I have 2 more products to show you, and again, I”m impressed! Aquasource (RM149) is a very light gel moisturizer and it’s a must if your skin needs an instant H2O boost. The Blue Therapy… Read more »

    I’ve been seeing these Clinique Pop Lip Colors everywhere. It’s not surprising, since these are really affordable, and the shades available are really pretty. They are pigmented lipstick and lip primer in one. The smoothing primer is infused with the lipstick so that lips look juicier, smoother. The Pop Lip Colors give a modern velvety… Read more »

    Beauty Influencer’s Sunday Column Vol.7: How has your makeup style changed over the years?

    I love today’s topic. It’s about how our makeup style has changed throughout the years. It’s interesting, looking back, considering I only started wearing makeup when I was pregnant with my first child. That was about 8-9 years back. CRAZY! However, I didn’t really start experimenting since a year before I started the blog, which… Read more »

    A Casual Look with Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in Envious and Little Black Primer

    I like my wardrobe to be monochromatic. Recently, I like my makeup to be bright on the lips and minimal elsewhere. I prefer clean looks, so it’s usually flawless skin (try to anyway!), defined lashes without falsies and bold lip. A simple but classic look. Thing is, I have annoying lashes. Very uncooperative and they like to… Read more »
