Make Up Hauls: The Sequal

Hi guys, yours truly is back with another make up haul post again. Without wasting time crapping, let's start now!

#girlsbeinggirls
I know I shouldn't use GST as an excuse to shop for cosmetics. 
Tell me how to not buy when you see these cosmetics placed in front of you my dear?? Tell me how to not buy when you have 10% discount at Sephora and the discount period is just about to end? TELL ME!
But, one thing I want to clarify here, I buy them because I need them and I will use them okay!!

Alright I will be starting with the skincare that I've got on last Friday at Parkson. Last Friday was Bonuslink member day, each member can earn x5 Bonuslink points when you spend at Parkson with your Bonuslink card. It was so worthy because we could earn extra points when we spent *wise consumer*. :P 
Accompanied mummy queen to Parkson to restock her skincare products but didn't expect I would get another new product for my skin. Thanks to mummy and also Dior's promoter. 


Skin cares from Dior.

Part of them are mummy's, part of them I have already mentioned in my previous post so I'm not going to elaborate much about them. :)

1. Capture Totale Dream Skin Glabal Age-Defying Skincare Perfect Skin Creator


I'm not using it yet actually so I couldn't comment much about this product. 
The promoter told me this product can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, pores, dark spots, redness dull complexion and many more. It is suitable to my skin as well as mummy's skin so we can share this! 
I have confidence on Dior products so I know this won't disappoint me. ;)

2. Dior Travel Set Skincare + Mini DiorSnow Maximizer - Mascara Serum Base & Lash Amplifying Effect



We got this for free because we spent more than RM1k at Dior counter. There is only 1 product among these 4 that is not suitable for my skin which is the Capture Totale Lotion. I'm using the rest of them but the sizes are so small, so I will only use them when I travel around. :)

The following are the cosmetics I've got from Sephora with 10% discount. Hehehe... :P


3. DiorSkin Nude Air (010)






I bought it at Sephora because Dior outlet hadn't launched it before April. I knew after GST imposed the price will be increased so I had an urge to get it asap. :P I stepped into Sephora on the first day the DiorSkin Nude Air launched. Actually I didn't know that it was launching, until the promoter introduced it to me and I fell in love with it immediately. 

DiorSkin Nude Air is a lightweight foundation serum that creates an enhanced complexion and a sheer finish. It gives me nude make up look after applying. :) Normally, I only use foundation/ BB cushion just to balance my uneven skin color so the coverage doesn't bother me much *DiorSkin Nude Air's coverage is not really strong as normal foundation*. 
I must say by far this is the best foundation I've ever tried. The texture, the color, the feeling after applying and the smell! Everything is just perfect!!! With DiorSkin Nude Air, your skin will look flawless without the cakey look. ^^


4. Rouge Dior Brilliant Lipshine & Care Couture Colour - 359 Miss



Lipsticks' price will be increased after GST. :'( So, I must get another one before GST!! 
Another Rouge Dior Brilliant Lipshine & Care Couture Colour in color 359 Miss. This time I went for a more pinkish color compared to the last time in color 263 Swan. Younger look okay? Okay. :P

5. Dior Crayon Eyeliner - Waterproof in Black





Trying out something new again. :) 
Personally I only use liquid form of eyeliner, because it can be removed easily. :P But since mummy told me this crayon eyeliner is not bad, so I decided to give it a try. Again, I've not started using it yet, probably will use it on the coming weekend *if I'm going out*. But I've tried to draw on my hand before buying it, it is so smooth, soft and easy to apply. So I think drawing on eyes will not be a big problem right? :) Also, it comes with a smudger and a sharpener which are a bonus! 

6. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler



I had been wanting it for a very long time already and I finally I bought it!! :D
It was not because of the shortage of stock but I personally thought that it is quite pricey for an eyelash curler. :X And you know I don't really care about my eyelash, I don't curl them, I don't even apply mascara properly *I just brush it simply*, so it might not be worthy to me to invest a lot in eyelash curler. 
But but butttttttttt, there are a lot of make up tutorial youtubers are using it!! A lot of good comments about this eyelash curler which make me feel like 'I MUST GET IT!' 
I'm just gonna throw away my 3CE eyelash curler now. :P

Ending this make up hauls post with these 2 items I've got from SASA when it was having sales. :)

7. Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Powder Eyebrow & Nose Shadow


To be frank, I don't know how to draw my eyebrow or should I say I don't know how to use eyebrow pencil to draw my eyebrow? Luckily, I have Kiss Me Heavy Rotation Powder Eyebrow & Nose Shadow here to save my life. I use it to fill in my eyebrow to create a natural look eyebrow. 
This is my second palette, I got it when SASA was having promotion and at the same time my previous one was almost finished too. The promotion just happened at the right time. :P
Last time, I only use the darkest color but now I mix it together when the second darker color just to make my eyebrow look more natural. 
 So far I have not used the nose shading shades yet, so I just leave the color there. Quite waste huh!

8. Methode Swiss Eye Cream




My very first eye care product. It is a soft and comfortable mask that can be left on the eye zone overnight. It helps to reduce dark circles and leaves your eyes re-plumped, brighter, tighter, more elastic and younger looking. Well, it is suitable for those who have dry skin, fine lines or dull skin tone around the eye zone or dark circles. 
In terms of the usage, you just need to hold upright and slowly depress the pump with your thumb to release the product, then glide the expert applicator under the eye, from the inner to the outer corner.

I've been using it quite some time already but the result has not appeared yet. :/
The promoter of SASA asked me not to use it everyday, twice a week will be alright. Nothing much to comment about this eye cream since none of my friends around me is using it and I haven't seen any result too. Guess I will only blog about it again when I really see the result on my eyes! 



Hopefully there will more make up reviews coming soon on my blog in near future.
Till then, stay tuned!
Good luck, mwahs! <3

Recent Hauls x Make Up Hauls

It has been a long time since I share about my hauls, the first and the latest was last year in May *click HERE if you haven't read it yet*. I have stopped talking about my hauls for almost a year. Well, partly is I'm not really purchase a lot of thing in a month. *laughs* Doing this post, I'm not trying to show off to be frank, I'm just trying to share, to bring informations for you guys. :)

The most expensive purchase of mine in recent is my Mac Book Air 13-inch. :) If you're my readers, my friends you probably knew that my previous laptop was spoiled and I lost all the photos in my hard disk. I sold off my previous laptop at a very low price because I knew fixing it would cost me a lot. After researching for more than 5 times about which laptop I should go for, in the end I chose Mac Book Air. 
Why Mac Book Air? The weight has already attracted me. It is so lightweight, it is just 1.35 kg, compared to Mac Book Pro, it is so much lighter. Also, it will be more easy for me to bring it to school or bring it when I want to blog at outside with the 12 hours battery life. :) 
Switching from Windows to Apple, it took me some time to learn how to use it. But I think I'm okay now as I'm slowly getting used to it. :) 

# All in sliver color. ^^

Not to forget to mention, I just got it a new casing in pink color last few days. Now my mac book is protected and not naked anymore. :)




Since the first day I started to drive, I've always wanted to get a new pair of shades to protect my eyes from the hot sun when I'm driving. After numerous of searchings for the suitable one, I finally got myself a Ray-Ban Aviator. I was looking for the one with purple lens screen but it was hard to find so I got myself in green colour in the end. Tried McQueen's and I really love it, it was so stylish and suited my face shape but too bad it was heavy, heavier than Ray-Ban Aviator. Since I'm going to wear it in long term of course I will go for the lighter weight. :) Before buying this shades I met a lot of problems. It was either out of stock or the discount period had ended. But good things come to those who wait right? I got it at another optical shop located at Gurney Paragon with lower price compared to other optical shops at other shopping malls. :) 
Well, boyf got one for himself too. I like his as well, G15 lens!! So comfy to wear!! :)




Here comes the cosmetic part. 
Another cosmetic product has come across in my cosmetic list. ^^ When you have been out for the all day and your face started to become oily. At the moment, you really need something to rescue your face, retouching your make up. I always do a lot of researches when I really want to buy certain things. 
I want to get a handy retouching make up powder for me to bring it out and won't take me a big space in my bag when I'm outside. Impossible for me to bring my loose powder with me right? Went for so many brands outlet to try and non of it attract me. :/

Last Saturday I went to M.A.C with boyf to check out the Cinderella's cosmetic series because the packing really caught my eyes. But surprisingly, the Cinderella's series failed to attract me. Instead, this Definding Powder definitely caught my eyes. :) 
It comes in 8 shades and I think there's only one word can describe this product perfectly which is - LIGHT. The coverage is barely there and it is really sheer. If you're same like me, not a person who likes to use a lot of powder then I'm sure you would love it. But one thing I'm not satisfying about this product is, it doesn't provide powder puff and doesn't have a spot for powder puff to put also. It makes touching up a little harder. :/





I just threw away my previous lip balm because I felt it didn't work on my lips. Because of this, I had an urge to get a new one. Yes, I'm still using Dior lip maximizer but I don't always bring it out, when I don't, this lip balm saves me as I always keep it in my bag. :) 
In 2 It lip treat, I didn't really know this brand until the Guardian's promoter introduced this to me. She said this brand's lip balm is not bad and she's using it too and asked me to give it a try since I don't know which brand of lip balm I should go for *The promoter realize I was in dilemma choosing which brand of lip balm at the lip balm department that time when she was tidying the stocks.* 
Since the lip balm isn't really expensive so why not I give it a try? :) 

 In 2 It lip treat is tested to a sun protection level of SPF 20 against UVB rays and PA++ against UVB rays. It is available in 4 shades and fragrances and I chose the one in color and fragrance of vanilla. 



I'm obsessed with lipsticks and I claim myself as a lipsticks collector, how can I not get the Dior newly released lip gloss formula called Rouge Dior Brilliant Lipshine & Care Couture Colour. I got one for myself in colour 263 Swan. When I first saw this I have fallen in love with it. The packaging, the colour, just everything. I know Dior cosmetics will never let me down. Well, I'm not starting to use it yet as I just got it yesterday. Gonna try it out soon and probably make a review about it? We will see then. ;)





The second last one would be my restock items, they are also from Dior. 
From left to right, Youth Essential Hydrating Essence-In-Lotion in 2 (Rich), Instant Cleaning Water with Pure Lily Extract (Face and eyes), Instant Eye Make Up Remover with Pure Lily Extract (Non oily) and the last one on the toner and face remover is Dior Addict Lip Maximizer. 
The Dior addict lip maximizer needs no introduction since I've blogged about it on my make up hauls last time. The other 3 items are new in my blog and to you guys too. I've been using them for more than 3 years already and they are really good to my skin. :)

Speaking about the face and eyes remover, I think Dior's is the best! 
For the eyes remover, it removes all the eye make up quickly and effectively *YES, even waterproof mascara*. For the face remover, I just need to use with just a cotton pad to remove all makeup. You've got to try it to believe how great it works! :D

About the hydrating lotion, it is a rich, nourishing toning lotion with a clean & fresh texture. It helps 
to moisture our skin, boost skin antioxidant capacity. Besides that, it also make our skin appears soft, bright, radiant & refreshed after using it. Highly recommend for dry skin user, it is just PERFECT!



The last one is my new iPhone bumper. The bumper makes my iPhone 5S looks like iPhone 6!:P  It has the only feature I am looking for from iPhone casing: lightweight!


XOXO

[Spontaneous Mini Escape] Hat Yai 2 days 1 night

Hi guys I'm back again hehehehe... Time flies, new semester is starting already. My 3 months holiday just gone like this wth.

I thought I wouldn't blog about my spontaneous mini escape to Hat Yai because I lost all my photos *read HERE just in case you don't know what happened.* But luckily I did transferred 3 photos from my camera to my phone before I cut and paste to my previous laptop. The rest are all taken by my iPhone. :) 

It was a spontaneous mini getaway actually, lots of thing happened when boyf was outstation in K.L. After he came back, he decided to compensate me for not staying by my side during the suffer week with bringing me to Hat Yai for relaxing both our minds. 



# Us in our high class van. :P

Departed at 8 in the morning and reached Hat Yai at 12 smth. Lucky us didn't spend much of time at the immigration port because that time wasn't very crowded. :) Van driver dropped us at our hotel right after entering Hat Yai region. After refreshing ourselves, we were out to have lunch at McDonald Lee Garden then did some window shopping before having ice-cream at Gelate

I actually took quite a lot of photos at Gelate because I want to made a post which only talk about it but now photos gone means no more. :'( We were first attracted by the design of the shop, the color matching is just same like the dining room of MM, blue and white. ME LOVE! The waitress was so kind, we tired almost half of the flavours they have but she don't even show us her unhappy face. :P Too many flavours to choose to be frank, in the end we went for fruit flavours which were passion fruit and blueberry. Well, we actually chose the wrong flavours, passion fruit and blueberry are way too sour and we shouldn't match them together!! We shall choose one sour and one sweet one next time. :)




Night time, we took a ride of tuk tuk car to have our dinner at a restaurant called 甘英饭店. This restaurant is quite famous in Hat Yai. Thai food we are coming~




Dinner for two. The speed of serving food was faster than we estimated. After ordering, in less than 10 minutes our food was already on the table. :D Thumbs up for this kind of service! The dinner was so cheap, cheaper than we expected. I thought it might have cost us more than 500 Baht but guess what? It was only less than 400 Baht which means less than RM 40 in Malaysia. Tell me where to find such delicious Thai food with such lower price in Malaysia? TELL ME!



# Feeling great after our foot massage. 

Supper time! Continue to eat after our foot massage. :P We wanted to try lots of food but too bad we both only have two stomachs, we couldn't fill in too much or else we would explode. :/





# Grilled squid *Still preferred the one at Gurney Drive.*


# AAA bird nest and longan *I mean the bird nest is AAA :P*

# Fried oyster

# You can see this kind of super huge prawn everywhere in Hat Yai. Not dare to eat thou. :/

# Got 2 bottles of beer from 7-Eleven. I didn't drink anyway, boyf was the one who drank it. :)

The next day, we had breakfast at random old shop nearby the wet market. 



# Mini you zha kuih *Boyf's fav*
 He said this is the reason why he misses Hat Yai so much. Haha...

# Chicken rice that only costed us 35 Baht. Boyf had dried noodles but I forgot to take the photo. 

Tuk tuk car again! Off to the large market after our breakfast to help my mum to buy Zebra's pot.





It's lunch again, time to eat again! Had Thai food as lunch at 59 restaurant *also is the one of the famous restaurant in Hat Yai* before going back to Malaysia.

# Madly in love with the coconut in Hat Yai because the juice and the flesh of coconut are so sweet. Yumms ;)



Almost fell asleep at 59 restaurant because we were too tired, the weather at the time was so chilly and the wind was so breeze. Ahhhh, we could barely open our eyes. I told boyf, wake me up when September ends, HAHAAHHA

B's Sweet was our last stop before we came back to Malaysia. Well, Hat Yai has actually improved a lot. Last time when I was here I didn't even see this kind of cafe. I think B's Sweet is one of the nicest restaurant in Hat Yai in terms of the cafe design. 


# Mango waffle
I WANT TO HAVE IT NOW!! :'( It tastes great, really. Plus, the price is reasonable.

# Stuffs I have got from this trip. Just ignore the 2 tumblers btw, they are melted. *bad quality tumblers that charged higher price.* Minnie Mouse's contact lens case and one of the mascaras is for sister. So, I only got mascara actually.


End this post with my selfie. :)
Looking forward to visiting Hat Yai again.
