Benefit and I, we are not friends. There I said it. Why? Well, many years ago Benefit Malaysia uses us, a group of bloggers to do a giveaway for them in order to create some hype for them. And when that is done, they have gotten what they want and the left without saying thank you or good bye. So, now they only get people who is famous or celebrity so-called to whatever they do. I am one who do not support Benefit Malaysia regardless how tempting some of their limited edition launches are.

Travel-Friendly Makeup Kit: How To Look Glam and Save Luggage Space When You Travel

Sephora Travel Friendly Makeup
I, for one has been taking pride in travelling with everything full size. People say I’m crazy but I just like how all the full size beauty products lining up at the hotel bathroom against the huge mirror 😀 . Well, that was until the recent Singapore trip with Olay where I find myself having trouble stuffing all my beauty products into my luggage. I was only going for a few days so I do not plan to bring a bigger luggage. The issue occurs because I brought my running gear with me. So that took hella lots of space hence lesser space for my beauty products 🙁 . I have come to realisation that I need makeup kit that has everything I need, minus the bulkiness and luggage space. Hence I went online to and found these two Travel-Friendly Makeup Kit that covers everything that you need.

Benefit Elle Malaysia Magazine English Magazine Review: Magazine

ELLE Malaysia August 2016 X Benefit Cosmetics Brow Products

Elle Malaysia August 2016 x Benefit Cosmetics Brow Collection 1
For the past few days my Instagram feed has been flooded with photos of ELLE Malaysia August 2016 magazine GWP in collaboration with Benefit Cosmetics. It has been months since I saw any good magazine GWP especially with the current economy. Everyone is holding their money and sponsorship tightly. So this ELLE Malaysia August 2016 X Benefit Cosmetics Brow Products is really refreshing!

Each magazine comes with just one Benefit Cosmetics new brow products deluxe size. There are five to choose from, or rather to hunt for.

  1. Ready, Set, Brow! Clear Brow Gel
  2. Gimme Brow Volumizing Eyebrow Gel
  3. Ka Brow! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Color
  4. Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer
  5. Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil

Elle Malaysia August 2016 x Benefit Cosmetics Brow Collection 2
So far I only managed to buy 3 out of 5. I’m not interested with Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer so I’ll skip that. But I am hunting for Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil. I notice that the stock for Ka Brow! is more than the rest. I wouldn’t mind more Gimme Brow 😀

Magazine is selling for RM8.90 a copy. It also comes with a brow waxing service card. Only available at Kinokuniya KLCC, Times and MPH bookstores. Hurry! It’s running low as everyone is hoarding a few copies each 😛


Benefit Marc Jacobs Nudestix Sephora Online Sale “Glitch” Haul

Sephora Online Haul 1
I don’t usually browse as I get my Sephora fix directly from the store instead of their online store but there is this ad on Facebook by Sephora saying that their online store is having a 25% sale on selection items. Curious cat I was, I login to, look for the SALE tab and started browsing. When I saw Nudestix Lip + Cheek Pencil was on sale price of RM27, I excitedly continue to browse and discover more and more items on a really steal price. Then I started Whatsapping a few people. I Whatsapp Paris B on Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick and Kiss Pop Lipstick that was on RM36 sale price, ShopGirl on the unbelievable RM27 discovery, and Mieza on Nudestix 3 PC Magnetic Eye Colour Kit which was RM51 for the whole set. What was odd was the discount percentage shown was lesser than the final price shown. I could not be bothered about the percentage. My eyes was glued to the final price lol.

I placed my order, made payment and my parcel was sent out a few hours after that. But because my area was not within Aramex delivery area, as usual the parcel was redirected to GDex and it arrived yesterday afternoon. There was three Nudestix Lip + Cheek Stain set available but one of the set was sold out. So I got the other two – Soul & Flesh and Mystic & Whisper. The description on page said that this is a 4-in-1 product. I always thought it is a 2-in-1 stick so I went to for more info. It said it is a lip color, lip liner, lip balm, and cheek color. Duh! Anyhow you put it it’s still a 2-in-1 product for me LOL.

Sephora Online Haul 2
Marc Jacobs was on a huge markdown as well. Well, at least that is what I thought. It was just a system glitch or human error 😛 . Since I have been buying so much lipstick lately including Nudestix in this small haul so I skipped their irresistible RM26 lipstick, for which I regretted now. I stumbled upon the Marc Jacobs Feather Noir Ultra-Skinny Lash-Discovering Mascara for just RM32. Seriously? I paid near to RM50 for Korean brand skinny mascara. And this is Marc Jacobs! BUY! I do not want to tempt you but the Genius Gel foundation was just RM60. Let’s not get into Becca. I had my eyes on so many of their products but they ran out of the shades I want so I was forced to not get any Becca 🙁

Sephora Online Haul 3
Oh. This is one interesting story. Earlier in June, Sephora sent out a newsletter on a free Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Colour deluxe sample for the first 50 Black Card customers by entering a certain code. It was supposed to be valid from 2nd June to 8th June. I had a few things in my cart and entered the code for the GWP but never get to checkout. The GWP item remains in my cart all this while until last week. So when I checkout, the gift remains. I was curious to see if Sephora would send me the GWP and they did 😀 .

Sephora Online Haul 4
So that is my small Sephora online haul. I think they notice the pricing error and everything was readjusted back to the sale price that was supposed to be within a few hours. What I paid was indeed a glitch. It happens all the time with But this time the glitch was a steal for me and to those who managed to purchase some of the items 😀


Benefit Holiday Collection 2014

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: Benefit Cosmetics Holiday Collection

Benefit Cosmetics is my least favourite brand as I find them to be slightly overpriced and to make things worse, the price is so much higher nowadays. Initially I wanted to show you Soap & Glory Holiday Collection but once I saw how many items they have and the time I’d spend to edit each photo, I’d rather show you Benefit Cosmetics Holiday Collection instead lol.

Benefits Cosmetics 2014 Holiday Collection
The collection this year intrigued me more than past previous years. I only had my eyes on just ONE holiday set from the nine sets that the brand has to offer. Bear in mind that all the below information was extracted from Benefit Cosmetics official website therefore I’m not sure if Malaysia will have all of it or if Malaysia is getting different sets and the price locally. You will have to pay a visit to Benefit to find out 🙂

Top 3 Primer That Are Good As Perfector, Just As Good On It’s Own

Sooooo, besides feeling demotivated and falling off the blogging bandwagon a little bit…I’ve been rather adventurous too. The adventurous bug bite me when I was too fed up with having oil secretion on my face before mid of the day. That’s the downside of having oily skin 🙁 I started going through all my base products, digging them out from every corner of my room. I have this crazy idea of using primer over liquid foundation, before finishing powder for a better oil control. However not all makeup base / primer works. It must be something that is able to matte the surface after application. Here is my Top 3 pick of primer that works well as perfector :D. Let’s start from bottom.
