Ahhh the most raved Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer that everyone is eyeballing. This would be the easiest product review for me as I’ve already been using it for a few months before it’s available here in Malaysia AND I LOVE IT. Oppsss! I shouldn’t have jumped to the end of the review at the beginning huh 😛 . A few months ago, I spilled the beans on Instagram Stories that Physicians Formula Malaysia would be bringing in the Butter Bronzer but as a limited edition release. If you missed several announcement on that and still asking me about Butter Bronzer, hmmm, it means you are not stalking me close enough 😛 . And the official announce was also made on Physicians Formula Malaysia Instagram on 16th August. Just bear in mind that this will be a limited edition release an only available for a limited time only while the stock lasts, so don’t procrastinate for too long.
I received a rather very surprised parcel one fine day just as I was reversing my car out and it was from Maybelline. I was a curious cat, ripping the courier plastic off to see what Maybelline sent me and I am not prepared for this. 12 pieces of brand new The Loaded Bolds lipsticks that was just released. All 12 new shades! With funky shades that I’ve been eyeing! Surprised, yes. Excited, hella yes!
At one glance I thought these Maybelline The Loaded Bolds lipstick are a matte lipstick. I have no idea why I think so. Maybe because every lipstick that was released to the market are either matte or liquid lipstick lol. Hey, I have no complain. You know how much I love my matte lipstick 😉 . In fact, The Loaded Bolds is a creamy lipstick that offers vibrant and full-spectrum shades as seem from my Instagram post here, here, and a look I did yesterday.
The Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips duo is not a stranger to most of you. I didn’t attend the blogger event but I was given this iconic duo when I went over to Physicians Formula Malaysia office for a meeting on #IWillBeOkay Beauty Bag. Always love Physicians Formula team. They are always ever so kind to me. Since then, I have been using the Shimmer Strips since last year and I’ve been loving them! They are so well-loved / beat-up by now which shows how much I adore them.
Unicorn, holo, rainbow, iridescent. These are what beauty enthusiasts are obsessed with from the recent trend. I think the key word is unique. Anything that is not the ordinary sells like hot cake. Then came the obsession with anything unicorn. And the Unicorn Brushes were launch and people go nuts!
The original Unicorn Brushes are not cheap and it is based on pre-order. Is there even such thing as the “original”? I don’t know. It’s the first to launch, it has better aesthetic look to it such as iridescent handle, evenly-made unicorn rainbow bristles and a unicorn brush pouch. I didn’t jump onto the unicorn brush bandwagon the minute it was out. I learnt through all the years of being a beauty enthusiast that some things are best to wait. And I was right this time. Unicorn Brushes are sold at RM90 per set of 5 or 10 on average, depending on the seller. Thanks to some shopping vouchers I obtained from some event, I had to browse through an online shopping portal that I discovered Unicorn Brushes selling for just RM11 per set of 5 or add RM4 to upgrade to a set of 10. But of course all the 10 pieces were sold out and I had to settle with a 5-piece set. I bought two different 5-piece set as I had to maximize my shipping fee. I got them weeks later and I hated them. Then I browse through the site again only to discovered the same seller changed the price to RM11 for a set of 10 pieces. This time I was determined to get another set but in plain white bristles. I got them weeks later again as seller informed me that it was sold out. When I got them, I was so happy with it. The plain white bristles with pastel purple handles are way better looking than the colorful bristles. Here are 5 Things You Need to Know About Unicorn Brushes.
I don’t wear falsies that often, although I know I should be especially when I’m taking photos for all the #motd and #lotd look. I tried to. I really did. I have all the falsies at home but I couldn’t find the right falsie glue. I have been hunting for months for a glue only to find lots of crap and fakes of the known brand. It’s disappointing. Out of the sudden, a huge HUGE parcel arrived my doorstep about 2 months ago. I opened it up and screamed as I was doing my usual happy dance. You know me. I’m forever happy with beauty stuff sent my way 😛 . It’s like someone has been listening to my invisible frustration voice that they sent me a care package containing loads of eyeliners, eyelashes, eyelash glue and double eyelid glue! And it’s from a well-known Japanese brand, D.UP.
I thought I would dig into the eyeliners first among all the products in the parcel but nooooo. I had my eyes and my soul fixed on the D.UP Eyelashes Secret Line AIR and D.UP Eyelashes Fixer EX. I took the risk with trying it on a full face of makeup for the first time for this review. No trial in advance, no nothing. It’s a either make it or break it lol. I was also snapping tons of photographs for two more products review so if I screw the look up, I’m doomed 😛
It was last year that I was watching either Lisa Eldridge’s video or Fleur De Force video on the Lancôme’s Grandiôse Liner and I was all fascinated and hyped up about it because it sounded like one hella good eyeliner concept with the bendable handle. As you know, almost 80% of the women population are struggling with drawing a winged eyeliner on, especially Asians. Asians typically has hooded eyelid and it is really a struggle to draw the flick at the end. I have been through so many methods, tips and tricks on drawing a winged eyeliner that something like the Lancôme’s Grandiôse Liner which has a bendable handle seems to be the answer to my prayers. Is it really? 😉
