August 30, 2016
Hello my friends. Today I would like to share with you all my favourites product in this fabulous month.

Hada Labo Shirojyun 

A moisturiser for oily and acne skin. BEWARE for someone who doesn't like cooling product. This product is extremely cooling like an ice cube on your face.

Ettusais Herbal UV Jelly

A fragrance free and light SPF 50++ sunscreen with jelly water texture. It also brightens up my face with its light and pastel green color.

Etude House Play Stick 101 Contour Duo 

This is my favourite shading product of the month. A travel friendly stick for contour and highlight face, texture is cream almost powdery. It is also very easy to apply and draw on precise point. 

Etude House Play Stick Brush

Love this mini size brush, the bristle is so soft I literally couldn't stop touching it. I use this to blend the contour duo product. I got both of the Contour Duo and this brush from for only RM 70. Super recommended!

Mario Badescu Special Healing Powder

This sulphur and kaolin powder is for acne and oily skin, to control oil, unclog pores and prevent pimples. I blend some of this with my loose powder to set my make up. I got this from

Innisfree Cover Stamping Puff

A tool similar to beauty blender, only much more affordable (RM 23). I like the curvy stamp shape giving me a very firm grip on hand. I usually use this stamp with cushion foundation, liquid foundation.

Daisy Eyebrow Gel (clear)

This fuss-free product is just amazing, it holds my brow very well without making it weird or waxy. and the best is of cos the price (RM 5.30)

Oxy 5 Acne Gel

A benzoyl peroxide acne gel that effectively heals pimples without making my skin flaky or dry. Another good product with steal price tag (RM 10-15). Available in Watson. 

Innisfree Nail Color Pro in No. 107 and No. 9

Recently I am in love in these kind of soft shades. These are light violet and dusty rosy pink. They are so feminine and pretty.

That is all bout my favourite in August.

Ettang Modelling Mask | Review and First Impression

August 19, 2016
Korea's skincare brands never seem to stop creating more and more innovative products. Seriously, it's hard to keep up with the whole trend sometimes. Recently, I came across this modelling mask from Korean brand called Ettang. It is basically a one-time usage of rubber mask packed in a disposable cup. All we need to do is to add water and mix the powder, it will turn into a rubbery paste and the mask is ready to use. Indeed, it sounds very convenient isn't it?

Some claims in their website ( :
1. Similar quality of those from high aesthetics facial. 
2. Contain natural aroma oil, free from chemical and parabens.
3. Shrink pores, contour face, moisten our skin.
4. Easy and convenient to use.

The one I will be reviewing is Chlorella. The reason I chose this one is because chlorella will purify my oily, congested complexion and at the same time will relax my skin and restores its vitality. 

Key ingredients analysis:
1. Calcium sulfate is to solidify the mask and trap moisture to our skin.
2. Chlorella powder is good for detoxify our skin, full of vitamin A and C to brighten skin and reduce scars.
3. Glucose acts as humectant, an ingredient that increase the water content of the top layers of the skin by drawing moisture from the surrounding air.
4. Allantoin is an ingredient that temporarily protects injured or exposed skin from harmful or annoying stimuli, and that may provide relief to such skin.
5. Aloe extract is to soothe and moisturise skin.
6. Portulaca Olearacea extract is to brighten skin, and improves wrinkle. 

How to use: 

peel off after 20-30 mins or dry

parts cannot be peeled, just rinse them off.

What I like: 
1. Easy to use
2. Natural and chemical-free ingredients
3. Relaxing and cooling sensation on skin
4. Herbal and earthy smell (some might not like)
5. Skin feels smooth and soft after use, also less redness
6. Affordable price (RM 12.90 / USD 3)

What I do not like:
1. Mask cannot be peeled off in one go or one big piece.
2. Messy peel off and stick onto hairline.

I think this mask deserves a 3.5/5 because it is a decent and effective mask for who doesn't mind a bit of work of mixing and peeling. Also, they have 10 choices of mask we can choose from depending on our skin conditions. 

Thanks for tuning in. If you guys want me to review any specific products, just comment below :)

Have a nice weekend peeps!

Etude House Real Powder Cushion | Review and First Impression

August 16, 2016
Hi ladies, today I am going to review the newest cushion foundation from famous Korean brand, Etude House. To be honest, I don't know why I stopped using my beloved Innisfree Long Wear Cushion. It suits my oily, acne-prone skin and didn't break me out. I guess I was just bored with it (makeup junkie's problem) haha. Then recently, I came across this Real Powder Cushion and I could say I am in love with this babe.

CLAIMS: Real Powder Cushion is an innovative and multi-tasking powder cushion foundation which provides all-day flawless with light and powdery finish.

 PACKAGING: It is very elegant and slim, with rose gold case and glossy finish. Also the puff tray is well built with some deepness to prevent from coming out between case. Love the packaging. (5/5)

wearing real powder cushion in natural beige.

PRODUCT: I notice that the cushion is quite hard and solid when I try to press using the puff. I do not like the puff comes from Etude House. I feel like it is quite stiff and absorb most of the product. I prefer the one from Innisfree. But nevertheless, the foundation itself feels very velvety and powdery with 50 ++ spf which are up to the claims. Also, it looks natural on my skin with 2 layers of application. The coverage is light to medium but certainly not full as some blemishes could still be seen. But it does emphasise some dry flaky areas on my face. My face began to shine after 3 hours of wear. And I need to blot on my T-Zone during the day to take away the shininess. But fortunately, it doesn't break my sensitive skin out. So I would give (4/5) rating.

SHADE RANGE: They have 3 shades available: Light Beige (lightest), Natural Beige and Honey Beige(darkest).  Mine is in Natural Beige (medium). I think their shade are more cool tone compared to Innisfree Long Wear Cushion (shade 23) which appears more yellow tone on me. But in overall, this shade looks the most natural on my fairly fair Asian skin.

PRICE: This Cushion is RM 65 in or RM 145 in Etude House retail shop. It think RM 65 is a fair price since we do not get any refill of the product nor the puff. Save $$$ by online shopping girls.

RECOMMENDED: for oily, or combination skin from fair to fair to medium tone skin who likes long wear base product or matte finish.

Please drop by your thoughts on this product and share with me :)

Till next time.
