Maybelline's Hyper Sharp Liner - Making Wing Forever In Style

I'm currently in the mission to search for the best eye liner and I'm sure you would have realised that recently a few of the cosmetics brand was releasing their new version of the eye liners at the same time. And I of course got my hands on the famous Hyper Sharp Liner by Maybelline. I was actually contemplating whether to get the black colour or the brown one but since I have a few other liners in black, I decided to give the brown one a try.



This eye liner has a very thin tip point of only 0.01mm much thinner then most of the eye liner I have and this means you'll be able to draw the most thinnest line with this eye liner and build up to the thickness that you desire. This is a pen liquid liner type which means the lines that you draw will appear very need too and at the same time more defined. 



The colour I chose which is brown is able to actually provide a much softer line due to the colour intensity compared to black liners that are more bold. And what actually amuse me was the pigmentation of the brown colour that was able to still show up on my brown toned skin. So to those Indian gals out there or any brown skin toned lovely out there, this colour will be able to suit you just fine believe me.

You can get their in any Watson or Guardian store and it retails at only RM 35.90 each. 

Just me playing around with the pen. It's so easy to draw with it, which also means that you'll be able to draw the perfect wing at the shortest time.

Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner

It's been a while since I blogged actively. Not that I've not been buying cosmetics but perhaps it was more to that I didn't have much space to pen down my thoughts. Apologies gals but I'm back again for good!

So I guess the best way to start my blog again is to introduce the hottest, yes I DO REALLY mean the hottest thing in town, "Benefit's They're Real Push Up Liner". They are out at all the Benefit's worldwide counters beginning 27 June 2014. But there was a flash sale at Sephora KLCC earlier and they had limited quantity for sale. I made sure I went there to get mine so that I can share it with you guys.


Now "push up"? Push up what you wonder? Have a look at the liner below. Firstly the packaging is simply slick I would say and it's slim that you can carry it around easily. And oo yea it's a screw cover which means you need to unscrew the cover to open them.


The tip if you could see from the photo below is pointy and is a rubbery texture called accuflex tip. This tip actually helps you line your lid without leaving any gaps. To release the product, you just need to twist below just 2 times and not more than that. Once released, just hold them and go to the base of your lash and line them as desired.


The results of this will be a dark black liner as you see below. Trust me it's something you'll like and also a straight line that you'll be proud of. However you'll need some practice to keep this working for you. Oo and another thing, remember to keep the caps closed very tightly as it does get dried up quite fast.


As I purchased this during their soft launch I would say in Sephora, Sephora was kind enough to give us the goodies below. Thanks Sephora for the love!! I'll come them in my other post.

Get The Scars & Bruises Fade Away...


Quite some time back I participated in a contest Hiruscar. I remember it was something about a scar that has a story to tell. Well, I didn't win the contest but I was certainly glad that I participated. Anyway months went by and one fine day I was surprised by a box that arrived at my door step and I contained all Hiruscar products for me to try. I don't really have any scar myself but I've planned to use it on my dad and see how the miracle works.


To share with you guys on my first product 'Hiruscar Gel', Hiruscar Gel is a revolutionaised 2 in 1 Recovery System scar care product. This product is newly formulated in Switzerland and has the ability to penetrate deep into our skin to regulate the re-generation of collagen to smooth and soften any scar tissues. It also contains natural ingredients to moisturise and protect the scar and further lighten the colour of the skin tissue to help to restore it to a more natural appearance. And you the best thing is that you can apply them on both new and also matured scar.


The second product that I'll be talking about here is on 'Hirudoid'.Hirudoid can be used on bruises, sprains and swelling. Or for some of us who has pain in the muscles and tendons, you can also you them to reduce the pain. What I also heard is that Hirudoid cream also helps in the inflammatory conditions of varicose veins

You can get both items in our local pharmacies and I believe that both are reasonably priced and can be brought for further scar scar. Remember it applies for both new and old scars too :-)

OoO and how can I not forget to mention about this special butterfly bookmark that I got from the team. Im someone who loves reading books and magazines so this will surely be a lot of a help for me. Thanks guys!

Wonderful VanityTrove Collections

As you may already know, VanityTrove Malaysia allows your to customised your trove which means that you're given the full rights to choose what are the items that you want to include in your box to try. This is surely something great especially when you get to choose something that suits you or something that you simply want to give a try. The only thing that I always wished was that there were more options that VanityTrove members add every month so that there's more arrays that we can select them from. But nevertheless, I'm always in love with this box. Over here, i just would like to show you two of my latest trove from VanityTrove late last year (alright, i know if a delayed post, my sincere apology). One of the box here is with selections that I have selected to try and the other box is a VanityTrove selection box (if I'm not mistaken, it was the Christmas range).



Without further delay, lets look at the first trove which was selected by yours truly :-)

1) TruDtox Botanical Tea Blend.
This is one of the multi award best selling detox tea around. And its 100% natural. All you need to do is to brew the tea bag in a cup of hot water for about 20-30 minutes before drinking. You can use them 2 to 3 times a week. And since it's the start of the year, a good detox may help :).


2) Kila Doll Black Pearl Mask
Together with this trove, you get 3 piece of black pearl mask to try. Now this functions exactly like any sheet mask. You apply them to a cleansed face and leave it for about 20 minutes and you'll have a refreshed skin. I've previously used them and I loved it as the smell is not too strong and I've also heard about the benefits of applying mask at least 2 times a week.


3) Dr. Jart V7 Cleansing Foam
This is the first time I'm coming across this brand and this particular cleansing form. I've heard that its excellent as a soothing and moist cleanser so why not give it a try. It fundamentally rehydrates stressed skin and has 7 types of vitamins to neutralise and help to brighten our skin. Will keep you updated once I've tried them.


4) SP Color Save Mask
We all know about this Color Save Mask and the small travel size allows us to just bring it with us easily during our vacation trips. And this is surely one of the reason why I included it in my trove again. And secondly is because I have coloured hair, so this surely helps.


5) Schwarzkopf's Bonacure Oil Miracle Shampoo
Now does this package look so classic. Alright, I just love the brown packaging. This is the first time I've actually encountered this in a beauty box, therefore I quickly grabbed it to try. It suits all type of hair so let's see how it works on mine soon.


6) Decleor's Flower Nectar Moisturising Cream
I'm currently using this moisturising cream and I love how it simply feels on my skin. All I do is apply a reasonable amount to my face after cleansing them. And what I love about this particular cream is that it adds moisture to my skin and at the same time does not leave my skin feeling heavy or oil.


7) Nuxe's Multi Purpose Dry Oil
I believe that I have few of this boxes by now. Yes, but why am I then selecting it again here in this customised trove? Well, it's simply because its a multi purpose oil, which only means that I can use it on my hair, face or body. I love how it does not feel heavy on my skin when I apply them considering its an oil And what I love most is the smell of the oil which is made of 6 precious plant oil. Its just so heavenly I promise.


8) ArtDeco's Eye Shadow
This was a new edition to Vanity Trove's collection so I simply selected them to try. I was not sure of the colour that will be given to me so a silver was surely a surprise. Lets see how I can use them on my skin.



Now done with the first box, let's now focus on the second box with selections from VanityTrove.

1) Blow & GO Smooth - Express Blow Dry Spray
This is a edition from Osis+. I will surely say that it's a good selection to be in the trove as most of us nowadays do blow dry our hair. And we all want to make it fast. I've used this a few times now and I just love how my hair feels. All you need to do is to spray this to your damp hair and then just blow dry your hair with the hair drier like you always do. It gives you this wonderful feel and gives a nice smell to your hair. And yes I hear you, it does not make your hair feel greasy.


2) Cyber Color's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.
It comes in a very cute container and it's something that you can pack and bring with you when you're travelling. Surely a must have in your make-up pouch.


3) Nail it with Bloop
I've received a few selections of this similar range from other beauty boxes, however, I've never gave it a try. But recently I've heard a lot of bloggers blogging about how easy it is to apply them. So just wait for my blog post soon on this.


4) Murad's Skin Perfecting Primer
Skin Primer is surely a must have in your list as it kind of gives you a good 'canvas' for you to work your magic. All you need to do is to pump this to your palm and apply them to your face. After applying this, just continue with your compact powder and others.


5) Clarin's Double Serum
It's said to act as a double serum and prevents ageing to our skin. I have not tried this yet but I've always only heard about the good stuffs that Clarin's has to offer. So this is in my next list to try.


6) Kate's Gel Eye Shadow
Can you see the particular colour tone down here. It's simply amazing how beautiful the gold colour looks. I've not tried it yet but I believe that it's going to be a colour that I'll'll love.


That's all for now. Will keep you updated once I've tried them.
