Review: Blincon Elegance Aquamarine colour lenses

Hello smexies!

I've not tried colour lenses before because it's kinda pricey just for occasional purposes. I normally wear my usual contact lenses that are so just plain boring, I somehow wish to purchase colour lenses but then again, my wallet will be crying. sob sob!

But HELLO to my new colour lenses from Glasses Online, where you can get lenses with a fraction of the retail price. I chose Blincon Elegance Aquamarine colour lenses that suits me the most! (I wanted Cutie Violet but le bf said it might looks weird on me ><) .


Blincon Elegance Aquamarine
Diameter : 14mm
Frequency : Quarterly Wear (3 months)
B.C : 8.6mm

This is how the lenses work on me
I had to open my eyes widely so that you can see it clearly! O.O

My verdict
I like the lenses a lot because it does help to enhance my iris and make my eyes look bigger. With its soft lens, it is easy to apply without feeling any irritation. However, after a pretty long hours I felt that my eyes were starting to irritate and redness appeared. Well to be honest, even though I would love to have colour lenses but I do not encourage to wear it for a long hour because it would damage our eyes in a long run, moderate is key. 


Well but it's alright to wear it occasionally just like when I was at WEvents last Saturday, I purposely changed my glasses to these colour lenses at the hotel and switched back to nerd mode before leaving the event. Even though it is tedious but it could reduce the damage of my eyes :)


If you're not a fan of Blincon, you can opt for other contact lenses brands such as Acuvue, Air Optix (my fav), Fresh Look, etc in GlassesOnline. Thank you for reading my review and here's an exclusive voucher code for you:

Purchase a minimum of RM100 on GlassesOnline, you can get RM20 off from your purchase (valid till end of August)

Review: Beautymate Venus Series - Polypeptide Collagen Revitalizing Mask

Hello smexies!

Recent years, the facial mask market has been expanding in beauty industry. Even L'Oreal from French is acquiring a Chinese mask manufacturer, Magic Holdings Internation Ltd with $840mil to strengthen presence in Chinese Market. 

Not only that, as a customer I could not decide which mask brand I should use because there are just too many to choose from. Usually I would request for samples as I have a sensitive skin, it would be a troublesome if I bought the wrong mask! Thanks to HiShop, their team is so generous to send two sheets of masks from Beautymate, Taiwan.

Beautymate Polypeptide Collagen Revitalizing Mask is best nutrition supplement for reducing the wrinkles caused by dehydration. It penetrates to skin underlying which can regain the moisture lost and increase the moisture level instantaneously. 
Suitable For: All skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin


I personally have doubts on the name of the mask because it is just way too long lol, then again I should be not be fooled by the name. The truth is, I would prefer to have a shorter name so that it is easier to remember rather than go alll-the-way to the end.


My verdict:
The mask soothes my skin as usual. After the application, I felt that my skin is smoother and slightly hydrated (it could be the essence of the mask). However, I do not like the material of the mask sheet because it is torned easily - check out my forehead. Moreover, the adhesiveness of the mask is moderate but it kept falling from my forehead (again!)


But based on the price, it is worth the penny especially for students like me! We would love to apply a mask while reading journals cuz it is able to calm myself down with the soothness of the mask. =D

One box of Beautymate mask (10 pcs) retails at RM49.90 in the market. However, HiShop is having a promotion on all beautymate masks up to 20% discount until 31 August 2013!


Just so you know, get RM20 discount upon checking out at HiShop with minimum purchase of RM99  by entering the discount code: TRYUSNOW. *Valid until 31 August 2013*

Summer Parties


Hello smexies!

Have you thought of traveling to other countries just for the sake of summer music festivals? I wasn't a big fan of music festivals, more specifically rave parties until I met my boyfriend. He started to introduced me to all sorts of techno music, Hardwell and Tiesto are his favourites. Getting familiar with the music was good but he insisted that I should attend to  dance-fests at Sepang because it had a better vibe in live than you know, popping your headphones to your ears. However, I can't just simply go to Sepang and party all night long because I have curfew. #Asianparentsftw

It sucks but I got to go to Swedish House Mafia's at Sunway in the beginning of 2013, I insisted that I should go because 1)It's only at Sunway 2)BEST OPPORTUNITY EVER, DUH! 3) I JUST LOVE SHM AND YOU SHOULD TO. Although the experience was not what I had in mind - note: it was mad packed with peeps and a girl's hair kept 'slapping' onto my face. 

Seriously, nobody like to taste your salty hair.

Swedish House Mafia One Last Tour KL

Anyway, have you heard of EDC and Tomorrowland? Those two were the biggest electronic dance festivals in the US and Europe respectively which held in every summer. I am keen to go to Tomorrowland because it's in Belgium which I would love to travel to Europe one day. Moreover, the festival is influenced by the fairtytale theme  - it doesn't make sense to me because I didn't know fairies love rave, shouldn't they prefer to glittery Disney songs? I don't know. 


Tomorrowland - Pinterest
Now that I think of it, maybe I could go to Tomorrowland because I can tumpang my friend's bf's crib at Switzerland. :P She sure would love the idea of me crashing into her boyfriend and her's summer. Maybe not that soon... I'm not working yet. After doing some research, it would costs roughly RM5k to RM10k to party for three days straight. Yesh, that is the price of life time experience!

Since I can't go there...yet, why not I gather some inspirational pictures and share it with you? I know many of them would spice up their outfit for the rave party but I'm kinda casual and laid back, I would prefer sneakers and shorts. Thanks to the weather in Malaysia, I think I'm pretty get used to the crowded place with HOT HOT HOT HOT weather. Just imagine walking in a crowded pasar malam, you guess it.

sweats... and it's good for losing your weight too.




That's all for now. I know this post is different than the usual ones, I just want to share the festivals with you.

Now tell me, are you a party animal? Which music festival would you like to attend?

Review: Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting (Irish Cream Pavlova)


Hey smexies!

I'm not a fan of lip gloss so to speak because I-just-don't-get-it. Anyway, I decided to try out this product because I heard of many positive reviews from bloggers and friends. Thanks to HiShop giveaway, I have the opportunity to review this product.

So is it really THAT good?


First thing first, I really do love Jelly Pong Pong packaging because it is just super cute! Pink and pastel everywhere, it warms my heart whenever I look at the packaging :) Lip Frosting comes with a fat tube, it can be used as a lip gloss or a cheek tint for a luminous gloss.

Here's my face with full makeup except for lips and cheeks.
I look so pale, I need some colours!!























After application: (from above) Cheek and lips
I SUPER DUPER LOVE THE FINISHING LOOK!
Jelly Pong Pong Lip Frosting provides a shimmery finish and it has bubblegum scent, which I kinda like it. *I hope my bf does lol* Moreover, it moisturizes and gives an extra pop to my skinny lips, so perky! I really to use it as a cheek tint as well because it suits my skin very well without being OTP. 


I would highly recommend this product for those who wants to achieve gyaru inspired look because the colour is sweet and innocent at the same time :) I truly understand why so many girls love this product so much now. It's simple to use and gives amazing result on both of my cheeks and lips!

Pros:
1. It does gives shimmery finish
2. It's not sticky, it moisturizes my dehydrated lips
3. It comes with delicious scent, like bubblegum.
4. Super efficient when you're on the go - can be applied on lips and cheeks with one swipe!

Cons:
1. Since it comes with a fat tube, it tends to be a little messy when applying on my face. I would prefer it comes with a wand for easier application.
2. I won't say it's pricey but RM60.00 is quite expensive for budget babes. However, it gives amazing results so it worth the price.

Will I purchase it? Definitely! I just love the colour of my cheeks now. hehe =)

You can get this product at HiShop Jelly Pong Pong section. With a purchase exceed an amount of RM90, you will be entitled for a RM20 rebate with this code: TRYUSNOW. valid until the end of August!


As usual, I'm gonna finish this post with my vain pose of the day! =) Good night everyone! Sleep tight!

Tagged: Get Your Freak On!

A tag post! Funny, I have not done that quite awhile now. 
Laura tagged on this, so here goes! 

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
My family always calls me 'Mui' - it means younger sister in Cantonese. I've grown up in a Cantonese influence but technically, I'm a Teo Chew 'banana' girl. I do not understand Teo Chew at all!

2. What's a weird habit of yours?
Let's see... To tell the truth, I talk to myself all the time. When people are not around, I would LOVE to talk to myself. That's for a reason actually, whenever I starts to think back those BAD memories, I would snap myself out through saying something stupid...*i would mention le bf's name LOL and curse him* *counting days*  
SO... if you see me motionlessly and start cursing le bf or counting days... please comfort me right away...

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
YES I DO. I have
Lepidopterophobia - fear of butterflies and moths! I JUST SCARED OF BUTTERFLIES. I seldom go to the garden full with flowers just because of butterflies! I think the reason is because when I got bitten by a butterfly when I was young. ><
 
and I'm a butterfly in Butterfly Project community LOL

4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
Well, I would say 王力宏《爱错》 and Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway album. The truth is I'm a fan of 
王力宏 and I do listen to his entire song collection in my car. Don't trust me? Try get a ride with me. You will be annoyed. Ask le bf, he always complain me listening to 王力宏 every single day.

As for Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway album, I would normally listen to it when I'm getting ready for a day out! From clothes selection to makeup... Her songs inspire me everyday, be a strong independent woman!
 
5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?

HOHO... It's definitely the road hoggers! I mean, who dafuq would drive so slow in the fast lane!? Like seriosly 50km/h, are you kidding me? Get to the slow lane PLEASE... If you're 80, fine by me but 50!? COME ON.

Oh another one would be car 'huggers'- they love you so bad they wanna stick their car to the back of your car at the same speed! Are you seriously tripping? I mean it's FINE to cut my lane, just go ahead but HUGGING AT THE BACK?  EXCUSE ME URGH >.< 
le bf taught me a new trick: if peeps love to 'diong' you at the back, just slightly break your car. That would freak the shit out of them! it works every time!

6. What's one of your nervous habits?
Shake shake shake, let's do the shake! It's sambal time!

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The left side of the bed ;)

8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?

I couldn't remember my first stuffed animal, it would probably a hand down one from my brother with his saliva. Ewwww... I had one cute Hello Kitty stuffed toy when I was still in primary, I always put it in my handbag whenever I go. SO CUTE RIGHT!!???

9. What's the drink you always order at Starbucks?

I used to order any ordinary Latte but ever since I met le bf, I switched my drinks to Green Tea Latte =) Now I love having Americano when I'm rushing my assignment or study and Green Tea Frappe when I just want to chill ;) Green Tea Latte is still remains in my top list, I would switch to frappe according to my mood.

10. What's a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?

lip balm before lipsticks. that's just weird!

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
I love playing water so, I would face to the water for no good reason. LET'S SING IN THE SHOWER! grab the mic, quick!
 
12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
Look at my body... Nope. Just nope!
 
13. What's your favorite comfort food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyways?

Anything that is sweet, especially desserts! I just love to have desserts in the weekends, it's like a treat for surviving in a week or something. I always drag le bf to Tong Pak Fu for 心太软 hehehe....

14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say? 
THE FUCK!?
OH SHIT!?
SHIT SHIT SHIIEEETTT!!!
FUCKERY FUCK!!!

15. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing?

PJs (pasar malam)  and old clothes :D Me no money buy luxurious sleep wears (La Senza or whatever)

16. What did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it wasn't that hot?
Punk inspired fashion. Just NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...
I used to wear like a punk then I took an arrow in the knee. Thanks to Avril Lavigne's influence. I still remember it was cool to wear plates skirts and just black outfit with crazy heels. Gosh, it all started in Penang. Penang kia don't kill me okay? Thank goodness I was not influenced as much as others, I still love wearing jeans that time :D JEANS ARE SEXY OKAY!!!



That's all from now!
