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

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 😛


Agnes B English Magazine Her World Magazine Review: Magazine

Her World Singapore July 2015 X Agnes B 55th Birthday Exclusive

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you would know that I went for an impromptu 3D2N trip to Singapore over the weekend with an ex-colleague. It was not planned at all. She asked me if I want to go, I said yes, I booked the flight, booked a place to stay and off we go. I’m a perfectionist so if I sit down and plan my trip, most probably I won’t end up going so impromptu works best for me. Told y’all I’m very random 😀

Since it wasn’t anywhere far and it was impromptu, it’s a trip just to go there and do nothing. But in my mind there is only a few things or places I want to check out in Singapore – to check out Watsons and Guardian, Kinokuniya, Sephora, Lush and Ladurée is time permits. In the end I forget about Sephora, Lush and Ladurée. I ended up only checking out Sephora ION, Watsons and Guardian. Towards the end of day 2, I walked pass a huge magazine stall at the corner of Holland Village while on the way home via MRT and my friend stopped me to check out Her World Singapore July 2015 X Agnes B 55th Birthday Exclusive magazine (S$7). I didn’t even spot the freebies at the back and my friend spot it! We both ended up with a copy and this is what I got.

Baccarat Magazine English Magazine L'Occitane Review: Magazine

Baccarat November 2014 X L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set

Last month, I’ve shared with you on Facebook that Malaysia Tatler October 2014 + Weddings 2014 issue are giving away L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set worth RM250 and that I didn’t get any as I wasn’t feeling excited about paying RM30 for one heck of a heavy magazine that comes with a deluxe size L’Occitane set. Lucky for me because last Wednesday I went to KLCC for SK-II event and I found out that Baccarat November 2014 is also giving away the same L’Occitane Divine Skincare Gift Set worth RM250. And it only cost RM15. Now, that’s more like it.

I didn’t plan on blogging about this but there isn’t much action going on with magazine GWP for the past few months so I thought I could spice up my magazine GWP entry for the blog a bit otherwise there will be spider web forming lol.

I’m not sure if I’m into the box more or L’Occitane content more. I sure am more excited looking at the cute box though haha. Oh and each box is wrapped with a plastic bag.

Cleo Magazine Dipped Row English Magazine Review: Magazine

CLEO September 2014 X Dipped Row Jewellery Box Set

CLEO has done it again. After being quiet for two months since it’s last box set in June 2014, CLEO Malaysia released yet another edition of box set for the month of September. It is the CLEO September 2014 X Dipped Row Jewellery Box Set.

The collaboration this time round is rather unique. Instead of the usual skin care or makeup products, CLEO collaborated with Dipped Row. If you still have no idea who or what is Dipped Row, then you’ve been missing out quite a bit. I get to know Dipped Row when they was launched a few months ago. A few friends of mine was invited for the launch and they painted the stones on the jewellery. This is the reason why I had a vivid memory of Dipped Row. Who would paint the jewellery rhinestone anyway right? No one. Dipped Row did it!

Cleo September 2014 X Dipped Row Earrings
Now, CLEO said that this box set is Limited Edition Dipped Row for CLEO but I claim to differ and I’ll tell you why. I have nothing again both CLEO or Dipped Row by any mean. I love them both. I’m just particular of the term used lol. Can’t blame me. I’m from magazine and digital publishing background 😀 . I agreed on this awesome deal being exclusive to CLEO but not the part where it said it’s Dipped Row for CLEO. Reason being, these pieces is currently selling at Dipped Row. If it’s “for CLEO” then it has to be something that you can’t get from their online store. No biggie actually. Just my crazy thoughts 🙂

Chinese Magazine Elle Hong Kong Magazine Review: Magazine

ELLE Hong Kong July 2014 X Travel Brush Set

I haven’t been spotting any interesting magazine recently. All the Japanese magazine and MOOK has been rather boring with the same ol’ freebies. Nothing to shout about with local magazine and seeing imported Chinese magazine is the same as well makes me even more sad. BUT. All that changed when I make a trip to KLCC last Sunday. My first stop was Kinokuniya. I managed to score a copy of ELLE Hong Kong July 2014 that comes with their travel brush set 🙂

ELLE Hong Kong July 2014 X Travel Brush Set
Initially I wasn’t sure if I want to get it. I would prefer a normal brush size than travel size to be honest. I have yet to use my Shiseido travel brush set and I just broke into my MAC travel set. It was the last copy on shelf. For a RM28.90 price tag, I knew I’d regret if I don’t get it. Because I couldn’t read Chinese and the brushes was inside the closed pouch, I have to make sure I wasn’t just paying for the brush pouch. So I squeeze the packaging and confirmed that there was indeed three brushes inside the pouch.

CLEO June 2014 X The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Smoky Plum Limited Edition Box Set

Just when we are still gaga-ing over Female Singapore April 2014 Issue X NARS The Collector’s Edition and we are talking about how Malaysia doesn’t have box set like Female Singapore, well whaddaya know. CLEO Malaysia released a limited edition box set with their June 2014 issue. It’s the CLEO June 2014 X The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes Smoky Plum Limited Edition Box Set.

Thanks to Mieza for spotting CLEO Malaysia Facebook page status update on Tuesday early morning, I would probably have missed it even though at that point of time I was sitting right in front of my notebook browsing Facebook with a cup of coffee on hand. Boy I’m not liking how news feed appears on our timeline nowadays.

Cleo June 2014 X The Body Shop
I didn’t really plan to dash out of the house on the same day to get it. I was thinking maybe I could grab it the next day if I’m going Ikea. I spoke to mum briefly on it and she feels that I shouldn’t sit on the idea. In fact she was the one who has been chasing me to bath and get myself ready since 9.30am! I guess she’s more anxious than me LOL. While I was doing my makeup, I made some calls to a few bookstore to check on stock availability. It’s only 27th on the month so I’m expecting stock delays with some of the bookstore, if not all. My first choice would be Borders The Gardens. They have the normal edition but not the box set (yet). Then I made a call to Borders Tropicana City Mall. There was no one picking up the phone despite several attempt. Borders The Curve was rude on the phone and she put me on hold for 10 minutes. I hung up after tired of waiting. I really don’t want to drive anywhere further than Mid Valley so I check CLEO Malaysia Facebook page again and spotted MPH Mid Valley. The kind lady on the phone confirmed that the box set arrived and they still have most of the stocks.
