Maybelline New York Fashion Week


Maybelline New York is having a Fashion Week in Mid Valley. I went there yesterday after work to grab some discounted products and to watch the 'From Catwalk to Sidewalk' fashion show.

The staff there are very enthusiastic and helpful. They know their products very well. So if there is something you want to get from Maybelline but do not know what colour is suitable for your skin tone, this is a chance for you to go there and talk to one of their beauty advisors. I am sure they will help you to get the product that is a perfect match to your skin.

I have always liked fashion shows and to imagine myself being in one (but I know I will never be, I don't think I have the confidence). Using my almost dead camera, I managed to snap a few pictures of the fashion show. At the end of the show, makeup tips are given especially to those who are new to makeup.



Things I bought:

Pure BB  Mineral Mousse for RM47.88
A recently-launched product. Super light-weight. Suitable for everyday use. I am happy that I bought it.

Clear Smooth Shine Free Pressed Powder for RM12.88
I use this everyday especially on my eyelids before I put on eyeliner to prevent my eyeliner to smudge due to my oily eyelids. If you have oily lids and you eyeliner smudges even before the end of the day, you should give this a try.

HyperSharp Liner for RM16.73
I am a fan of gel liner and I have not owned a liquid liner for a really long time. I have heard good reviews about this eye liner, so I decided to give it a try.

Babylips Lip Balm for RM9.88
I do not like to use lip balm. I bought this just so that my bill would exceed RM80 and I could get a eyelash curler for free.

Things I got for free:
Make Up Remover for Eye & Lip 40ml
Eyelash Curler

Nail Polish Collection

I used to paint my nails a lot and have different nail design every week. As college work became more hectic, I removed my nail polish less often and now I don't even have a habit of painting my nails. Sometimes when my girl friends come over to my house for sleepovers, we paint our nails and draw on some pretty designs. Here is a design I did on my friend's nails, it is also the one that I am most proud of. :P

My nail polishes are barely used now. I think it's time for me to start painting my nails again. Anyway, below is a video of my nail polish collection, hope you girls like it!

How to Organise Hairbands

I wonder if there are any girls out there who suffer from the problem I did. My drawer was always cluttered with hairbands and sunglasses, and they always ended up 'tangled' together. I have finally found a have to organise my hairband and display them nicely on my vanity table.

Review: Biore Makeup Remover For Eye & Lip

Hi beautiful readers! Kao is generous enough to send me a bottle of Biore Make Up Remover for me to review.

Importance of having a good makeup remover for eye and lip
The eyes and lips are the focus of modern makeup techniques that use multiple layers of heavy makeup such as waterproof mascara, waterproof eyeliner, glitter eye shadow and fake lashes as well as lip balm, lipstick and lip gloss to achieve stunning looks. When removing makeup, it is important to use a effective and specialised makeup remover to avoid rubbing, wiping and tugging as all these actions will cause premature wrinkles and broken capillaries around the eyes. Besides that, excessively rubbing will cause lashes to fall even before they reach their full lengths. If you're wondering why your lashes are always so short, it could be because you rub your eyes too much.

What I like about this product?
Biore Makeup Remover effectively softens and lifts off traces of heavily-layered makeup. Though after wiping, there are still traces of eyeliner in between my lashes, I am very pleased with the way the Makeup Remover removes my eye makeup. It is easy to use, feels pleasantly light and leaves no oily residue. It does not have any distinctive scent to it which may be irritating to certain users. It is also very gentle and mild on skin, even in the eyes. So if you accidentally get some into your eyes while wiping, you do not have to worry that your eyes will be blood shot.


What I dislike about this product?
Biore Makeup Remover does not dissolve lash glue as well as Biore Cleansing Oil does. In comparison with the Biore Cleansing Oil, the Makeup Remover is more expensive. 130ml of Biore Makeup Remover costs RM29.90. With lesser money (can't remember how much though), you can get 150ml of Biore Cleansing Oil. Unlike the Cleansing Oil, the Makeup Remover can't be used in the shower.

Price: RM29.90.

Available at: AEON Wellness, Caring Pharmacy, Guardian, JUSCO, SASA, Watsons.

Will I buy this product again?
So long as Biore Cleansing Oil is in the market, probably not.

Overall rating: 3.5/5

Here is a video review of Biore Makeup Remover and Biore Cleansing Oil. This is the first time I share my video outside of Youtube. Do support my Youtube channel. There are still a lot of room for improvement. I hate the way I talk in my videos. I may sound very pretentious with the accent (I don't normally talk like that), but it is something that bugs me too! So don't hate on me. The accent comes out very naturally once the camera is set up in front of me. I am trying so hard to talk like how I normally do.
