Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette Review

Pink, pink and pink. Tell me who doesn’t love pink. I admire pinky stuff but not totally obsessed with it. Just a lil bit of my inner child can get attracted to it (or even excited!). To emphasize my love towards this soft-childish color, I’ve decided to get my very first pink-themed eyeshadow palette.

Nope.

All in all, I’m okay with this palette. Some shades are great for natural eye makeup, also you have the option to go for more bold look. The instructions at the back really helps to pick any matching shades. I bought this because it seems that it is a dupe for Naked 3 palette (obviously) which is totally not affordable for me. Haha.

So, ARE YOU DARE TO GO NUDE?

 

FARMASI CC Cream Review

Assalamualaikum and good day!

I never ever had confidence on my own skin. Greasy face with large pores is a big deal that I have to face everyday but I’m getting used to it. Before this, I don’t have the courage to get my hands on foundations, BB cream or CC cream or even the moisturizer. They just stimulating sebum secretions on my face and I had to use like 2 or 3 oil blotting paper. Sheesh.

On the other side of my ‘oily’ story, I’ve been eyeing this one brand called FARMASI Color Cosmetics or FCC. Originally from Turkey makes me more determined to buy their products. Why? Bcs they’re HALAL of course! One of their high ratings product is the CC Cream.

  • The price is reasonable.
  • It literally smells like baby powder. What? A cream baby powder? Haha. Love the smell to the max!

Skincare Routine

Assalamualaikum and hey ladies!

This post is specially written for you ladies but for the guys, there’s no harm to read it, okay? Hehe. I’ve been waiting to write this since some people asked me how do I take care of my skin, what products do I use and stuff. Those questions will be answered here.

I don’t really invest so much money on very high quality products which are of course quite expensive due to my inconvenience to go to the luxurious places, also the money. Hmmm. Money play a huge role, guys. So I decided to do some try and error on the products available in the drugstores or any places which I can get them easily and the prices are more affordable.

IMG_1752

Surprisingly-orange themed, I introduced to you my everyday skincare regime! Wuhuuu. Lets take a look one by one shall we?

1) FACIAL CLEANSER

Nourain skincare, the local (Malaysia) products has become my forever favourite since I started to use it last year. For the cleanser, Nourain came out with an orange-coloured soap known as Beauty Soap.

PACKAGING

The packaging is super simple which in a small square box with all descriptions written all over it. What I love about the packaging is that it has a small well on it that allow us to see what the soap looks like.

IMG_1777

IMG_1753

IMG_1754

Besides the box, there also another plastic container specially design for the soap. Just look at the orange thing. I love the design and the orange scent of it. Hehehe. I always cut the soap into pieces and used it one by one.

DESCRIPTION

IMG_1778

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?

  • This beauty soap is super effective for all skin types especially oily skin like me. The effect takes place for about 3 days after used it then you can feel the difference.
  • My skin gets better after I used it like become more soft and supple.
  • The ingredients are amazing! Most of it are natural and no chemicals. Love it.
  • The oil control is kinda great and I think that my skin become less oily than before.
  • About more than a week, you can see the scars or any dark spots are started to disappeared.
  • My big problem which is the whiteheads and blackheads are like 80% gone!
  • The foam is so smooth and soft when you used it.

WHAT I UGHHH ABOUT IT?

  • The texture of the soap is too soft. I guess because the natural ingredients.
  • You might wanna keep it in a very dry place or else the soap will become ‘soupy’ and can be easily drained out from the container. No worries. What I always do is keep the soap in a full-covered container. Even though the soap will turned into orange liquid, you still can used it like normal.

PRICE

MYR16 and would definitely repurchased it!

2) FACE SCRUB

Scrubbing is my favourite part of skincare routine. It feels like the reborn of your skin without any impurities, oil, dirt and all that disgusting stuff that don’t belong on your face. For me, it is very crucial. I put so much effort when it comes to choose face scrub, Previously, I’ve been using the facial scrub from Safi Balqis White Trilogy for oily skin. Unfortunately, the product was not looks like a scrub. The texture is more like a normal facial cleanser with very subtle beads that can be easily smudges together with the creamy part. I don’t like that. I want a functional scrub with long-lasting granules in it. So I decided to buy St. Ives Apricot Scrub specifically for blemish control and pores minimizing.

PACKAGING

One tube contains 170g of products which is quite a lot. The size also satisfying. Not too big or small. Came in a normal squeezed-tube form container which is the same as other brands. I love it.

IMG_1758

DESCRIPTION

IMG_1759

IMG_1776

TEXTURE

This is what I’m bragging about. Can you see the beads? They stay even after I scrub and smudge over and over again but they still there. This is what we call a real scrub. It does a really great job in exfoliating my skin ❤

I’ve decided to get this St. Ives Apricot Scrub after I watched Maria Elena’s video HERE on what products she used in her skincare routine. She said that she used this scrub EVERYDAY. Wow. This is exciting. All I know that we can only scrubs like 2-3 times per week but she said this is a mild scrub and can be used for every single day. This is a bonus! Now I can get newly fresh skin like all the time. Hehe. But what I do is I scrub alternately and not everyday.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?

  • The overstay granules or beads function so well in assisting me to get rid off any dirt and excess oil on my face.
  • A very little amount of it is enough for your entire face.
  • My skin feels fresh and super soft after used it every time.
  • Reasonable price and easily available in almost every drugstores.
  • I love the fact that this scrub is 100% natural exfoliants and oil-free.

WHAT I UGHHH ABOUT IT?

  • The apricot scent is a little bit strong for me even after you already washed and dried your face.

PRICE

MYR19.90. Its probably on sale the time I bought it and I think the normal price is MYR20 something. Would repurchased as long as I don’t find any better facial scrub. Hehe.

3) FACIAL TONER

I don’t really concern in choosing facial toner as long as they are alcohol-free. For me, all toners are all alike.The functions is the same. So since I’ve been using Nourain for quite some time, I decided to try theirs.

IMG_1756

PACKAGING

I really love the packaging. It seems that they really put much thoughts and efforts designing this kind of container for a facial toner. It came in a really sturdy plastic bottle with cap and it is a spray-form of container. It looks like a pump but it is actually a spray pump.

IMG_1757

DESCRIPTION

I’ve used this toner for quite a long time so I already throw out the packaging box. Hehe. But here some details about the product.

  • membantu menghilangkan bintik hitam
  • menyegarkan dan menghaluskan kuit wajah
  • dirumus untuk menutup kembali liang pori dan mendinginkan kulit wajah
  • membersihkan kulit wajah dan ianya dapat meresap jauh ke dalam epidermis kulit, menutupkan kembali pori-pori kulit
  • mengembalikan kelembapan kulit wajah.

INGREDIENTS

  • R.O Water
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Algae Extract
  • Cucumber
  • Aloe Extract

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?

  • The packaging is super convenience. You just have to spray the toner on your face without the need to drain it out onto a cotton pad.
  • The toner is purplish-pink in colour and it smells amazing.

WHAT I UGHHH ABOUT IT?

  • I don’t really sure if it is effective in removing makeup or dirt on my face.
  • There’s no positive effect yet for my large pores.

PRICE

MYR30. Repurchased? Maybe not. The price is pretty expensive for a toner.

4) MOISTURIZER

Nourain skincare does have a day cream but it more like a UV+Foundation cream. With my skin condition which is oily and has large pores, I don’t think foundation form of day cream would worked for me so I don’t buy it. I’ve tried once but yeah, my skin become more greasy and who wants that? So I decided to try a moisturizer that specifically formulated for oily skin. I’m glad that I find this affordable thing. It is quite hard to find the most suitable moisturizer for oily skin not to mention water-based. Some people might think that oily skin doesn’t need moisturizer but I think I do.

IMG_1763

This is an oil-control face lotion moisturizer from Safi Balqis White Trilogy. This face lotion is incredible. I love the cylinder-shaped packaging which seems pretty handy.

PACKAGING

IMG_1767

Another pump! Yeah. I love it. No need to get your hand in mess putting it inside a bulb container of moisturizer like others in the market. Just pump it onto your finger and directly apply it on your face.

DESCRIPTION

Made for oily skin, the water-based oil & acne control moisturisng lotion SPF15 – SAFI BALQIS White Trilogy purveys extra moisture to the skin while controlling the skin from the threats of excessive oil production and acne problems. Enriched with the goodness Vitamin C and B3, it helps protecting and rejuvenating the skin cells from deep within while imparting perfectly bright skin without any harm.

  • Opens up pores

IMG_1764

IMG_1765

IMG_1766

TEXTURE

It is like other moisturizer, white and creamy texture. Easily absorb into the skin and yeah one points for that!

IMG_1768

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?

  • Absorbed easily leaving the skin softer than before.
  • I used it as makeup base and it is great.
  • It is water-based so it suits my skin type perfectly.
  • The oil control is quite okay la.
  • It has SPF15 for UV protection.
  • My skin become more smooth, fair and radiant.

WHAT I UGHHH ABOUT IT?

  • Sometimes it feels a lil bit greasy after a few hours but still under control. Hehe.

PRICE

Less than MYR20. I really can’t remember the exact price. Repurchased? Absolutely!

5) NIGHT CREAM

I save the best for the last. Again, Nourain really had caught my intention. Before this, I just cleanse my face before go to bed without night cream or any other products but when I used this for the first time, my skin gets better and better!

PACKAGING

The packaging is super simple with a box and a small bulb plastic container full of 10g of night cream. Opening up the cute container, there is a white plastic cover protecting the cream from spilled and smudge around the cap. Keep it sanitized!

IMG_1769

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT?

  • The best night cream I’ve ever used!
  • My skin become so soft in the morning and if I have any breakouts, this cream will take care of it.
  • NOT OILY AT ALL. It looks oily but its actually not.
  • Small amount able to cover the entire face.
  • I think this cream is the one that helped my skin a lot.
  • Can be used like 2-3 months per container.
  • The blemishes, whiteheads, blackheads, scars are gone.

WHAT I UGHHH ABOUT IT?

  • For me the price is pretty steep but I guess its worth the functions.
  • Only can be easily applied if your skin is moist and not dry.

PRICE

MYR40 for 10g. I don’t really sure the price for the 5g. Definitely repurchased!

Phewww. Such a long post. So now you know the products I’ve been currently used and all of them are amazing. Who says cheaper brands are not so good?

Finally, I managed to finish this and hope it helps. I bought online for the Nourain skincare and the others from the drugstores such as Watsons and Guardian.

Thanks for reading ❤

Ronasutra Cosmetics Review

Assalamualaikum ladies!

Remember my longest review on my precious Kokuryu Super Summer Cake Powder? Did I manage to blow your mind? I hope it did. On the other hand, have you ever heard of the brand Ronasutra? If you’re Malaysian, I bet you do. It is one of the best and popular local brand. What I love the most about it is they are 100% mineral based cosmetics. I don’t want to brag but you must see this through.

ABOUT

Ronasutra is a range of mineral based cosmetic that is created to meet the needs of consumers today who are looking for an alternative to the usual face makeup available in the market today. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for problematic and sensitive skin.

With formulation that are safety-conscious and free from harsh chemicals, those with sensitive skin will get relief from blemishes, excessive skin oiliness and congested skin once they switch to Ronasutra Mineral Makeup.

Awesome right? Actually, 3 years ago, I managed to get my hands on the Ronasutra 2-in-1 Mineral Foundation and Powder which is basically a loose foundation. Mine was in the shade 04 Honey. My honest opinion is the powder really helps in my skin problems as in oily skin and a few severity of acne which also a little bit sensitive towards chemical products. Alhamdulillah for that because my skin gets better afterwards. It also lasts for like 5-6 months. Unfortunately, I was unable to maintain to use it because it is pretty steep for a student like me.

This year, I finally stand a chance to try it again! Ronasutra had organized a Merdeka Crazy Sales for the Independence Day last month and yeah, it was crazy. Crazy enough to get my head in dilemma. A few cosmetic sets were extremely cheaper than ever!

Wow. I was in shocked when I saw this on their FB page. I kept asking myself which sets I want to buy and it drives me crazy. Hahahaha. I’ve always wanted to try their retractable Kabuki Brush because well, I don’t have any makeup brushes so why not I bought the entire set? Finally, I picked Set 1.

The original price was hell. RM109 was too much for me. Hahaha. RM43 was quite reasonable since they included the Kabuki Brush. The original price of the brush is RM48 itself so I didn’t wait any longer and start to google so I get more information about the set. Luckily, Z managed to buy it for me since the sales was in Shah Alam.

Taraaaa! This is mine! *cry. I was super excited to try this out especially the brush. Hehehehe. On the first day of my new semester, I tried this out and Iove it! Lets check out the details and the packaging.

MY TESTIMONY

As per usual, for review, there’s no filter for this photo. I only applied my face lotion/moisturizer and the Ronasutra 5 colour set on top with the kabuki brush. My face looks glow and matte without any shiny and oily skin area especially on the T-zone. The loose formula naturally absorbs the oil on my face thus it lasts 8-9 hours! Even at night, my skin still looks fresh like I put a new coat of powder. Seriously, I love it.

  • Free from talc, oil, paraben or any synthetic formula.

  • Halal.
  • Buildable formula.
  • Easy to blend to get full coverage.
  • Able to control excess oil and sebum production on the skin.
  • Enhancing the skin’s natural colour.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT IT?

  • Loose powder sometimes can be a bitch ; spilled everywhere.
  • During application, I need to hold my breath to avoid any powder inhalation. Hahahaha.
  • The clear twist compartment can be really difficult to work with.

Kokuryu Super Summer Cake Powder / Bedak Arab Review

Assalamualaikum! 😀

Just another review from me. Again, its about beauty product! I’ve been struggling to find a perfect face powder for my oily and sensitive skin. I’m giving an exception to mineral loose powder as they do give positive effects to my skin BUT the thing is I don’t have a powder brush or kabuki brush or even any makeup brushes to apply them. Also, it is very inconvenient to bring along when I’m going out as it would overturn and spilled everything inside my handbag. I’m a sponge girl so I need a perfect pressed powder that can give me full coverage and lasts throughout the day.

Luckily, Zack had convince me to try this out. Kokuryu Super Summer Cake Powder in the shade Russet. Here in Malaysia we called it as Bedak Arab or Arabic Powder and it is quite popular among Malaysians. I know, its a weird name tho. Kokuryu? What does it even mean? Hahaha.

Observe and find the difference. My right face with application and without on the other side. I love this shade because it makes my face looks very natural with some pinkish effect. Now, I can achieve an ideal medium skin brightness only by using this awesome product. You can tell if you does not see any difference in this photo. Let me zoom clearly.

It does hide my large open pores although it doesn’t work perfectly as face primer cause it is a powder and not a primer. Hehe. It’s good enough for me to cover my redness, pores and also my skin discolouration. Oh, and don’t forget, do you see what happened to my dark circle? It is minimized. Thumbs up! Here is my other photos where I’m using it. Fake flawless face alert. 😛

Believe it or not. Hahahahahaha. It really makes my skin glow radiantly. In addition, my face does look soft, supple, luminous and bright! It gives natural finished without cakey and sticky effect on my face. It is so light-weight as I don’t even remember that I’m wearing a powder. My skin looks so fresh after application and good news, my skin becomes less oily than before. If you’re following my Instagram, most of my pictures are when I’m using this summer cake. ❤

I’ve been using it since last year until now. I don’t know why this powder lasts in such a very long period. I think maybe I just need a small amount of product in one application, also I don’t have to touch up my makeup throughout the day when I’m outside. See? It is so convenient and super saved! Just ignore how my beauty sponge looks like. It does looks like an old, crusty bun but still I can used it everyday like normal. No need for a new sponge. I guess I don’t have time to get my sponge washed. Hehehe.

PROS

  • The smell is truly amazing with a sweet, chalky and tolerable fragrant.
  • The packaging is quite simple and convenient to use.
  • The amount of product is surely worthy with the price.
  • The price is super affordable and reasonable.
  • The sponge is very durable and high quality.

CONS

  • It is quite a troublesome when I need to wet the sponge whenever I want to use it.
  • And when the sponge is wet, I need to keep it dry OR my sponge will be damp and starts to smell. Bluerghh!
  • It is way more better if the packaging come out with a sponge compartment so I don’t have to keep both powder and sponge separately.
  • No mirror. Everybody needs a mirror when applying a powder. Huhu.
  • The current plastic packaging sometimes can be too fragile when falling down thus can instantly cracked the powder inside.

WHERE TO BUY?

This powder is everywhere especially in the online shops. Just google or search them on Instagram. Make sure you’re looking for a very affordable price because some sellers sell this powder at a very expensive price such as MYR60 – MYR75 or something. For me, that is pretty steep.

My very first powder, I bought it thru COD from a seller who I find by google for just MYR26 and for the new one, I bought at GM Klang for just MYR15. Crazy enough? Hahaha.

How did I managed to get such low-priced Kokuryu powder? Well, the one I bought got this little defect on the powder. There is some sort of oil came out from the edges between the packaging and the powder. You didn’t see it did you? Hahaha. Of course I’m gonna pick the best one. The seller there told me that MYR40 is for the perfect and flawless powder but they only sell the MYR15 type. Its look good for me as long as it is original. Beware of fake product! You can checked on what the fake Kokuryu powder looks like.

Phewww. Such a long review. Oh well, it is a good product so it is eligible to receive some credits and compliments. Hope this review would help you. Thanks for reading. ❤

MN Kiss Proof Soft Lipsticks Review

DISCLAIMER : I truly apologized due to this non-pictures post. I did have posted quite a few photos including the swatches and the packaging but I accidentally deleted all photos related to this entry. Not to worry, I still have my honest review about this product and I’m hoping you’ll enjoy reading it. Thanks ❤

Assalamualaikum girls! Today’s post is for you 🙂

I always want to give a try on any lipsticks that is more high quality and has variant of pink and red shades but I guess, it is not the right time. That’s why I’m looking for something cheaper but in medium quality with many positive feedback. Introducing to you, Kiss Proof Soft Lipsticks with Powdery Matte formula!

PACKAGING

Came with a small simple box with all the details and descriptions and what I love about the packaging is that it has a small hole and we can see the shade for each lipsticks. You don’t have to go through the hassle to open up every box to differentiate them. Also, there is a sticker with the code for each shades. Neat huh for super cheap lippies?

DESCRIPTIONS

Not to forget, there also a description paper inside each box. The photo is to blurry? Lemme write it out.

Excellence and efficiency lip essence is continuing to provide abundant hydropower, rich nourishment; the mellow color-imparting factor pure color, long held color,lips throughout the day hydro tender and beautiful, charming and moving.

HOW TO USE?

Applied in the center of the lips and then spread outward to the corners of the mouth, after each use, wipe clean the lip gloss stick as makeup supplement, commonly used lipstick, lips fuller, glossier; as efficient lip : used alone to create the perfect result.

I really don’t understand what is the descriptions about but I guess, you get the point right? Maybe because it is made in China so it might get difficult to describe them.

 

APPLICATION

It is a crayon-like lipstick which is to make sure the application go smoothly with ease but it cannot be twisted to get more product as in permanent bullet lipstick. BUT, you may sharpened those tips.

My favourite is 016. I love the colour! It blends well with my skin and it doesn’t make me look dramatic or whatever.

HOW LONG IT STAYS ?

It stains for like 2-3 hours without eat or drink I guess because I have dry lips so I keep my lips moisturized with lip balm, petroleum jelly or any other lipstick before I apply this. So, I need to reapply them for every 2 hours but for those who doesn’t have dry lips, the lipsticks lasts for quite a period. It stays for like a day, I think. I’ve tried to wash my hand swatches with plain cold water but it doesn’t come off at all unless you wiped them out with makeup remover. Very long lasting.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT?

The choices of colours are pretty amazing and also I love the crayon-like pencil structure which makes my job easier to apply it. Don’t forget, the price is extremely affordable.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE ABOUT IT?

The powdery matte formula is certainly VERY NOT suitable for those who has dry, chapped lips like me. I myself having so much trouble to apply it alone directly on my lips. It is super matte and I need to based on my lips with other moisturized lipstick. With that, I can glide it smoothly. I hope they can come out with more damp and moisturized formula.

Another thing is that I hope they can produce new batch of Kiss Proof lipsticks with twisted feature. It would be very helpful so we do not have to sharpen it regularly.

WHERE TO BUY AND PRICE?

Just look for the cheapest or affordable price on Instagram especially on the hashtag. There are so many beauty and cosmetic sellers who sell these. I bought on Instagram for RM4 each.
