    My Favourite Everyday Lipsticks

    Lipstick is a must whenever I go out. My favourite lipsticks are mostly range from nude to pink shades because it is simply easy to match with my outfit. It completed my whole make up look and make my make up stand up more. It doesn’t matter which type or brand my lipstick are, as long as it brings life to my face.  I choose a matte finish than a glossy finish. I think a matte finish liquid lipstick will last longer and easier to apply.

    Here are my five favourite lipsticks that are absolutely gorgeous and I love to keep them in my handbag every day. Even though they may look like they are in the same colour, but they are different. Trust me. I can even wear these lipstick with a natural look and I will look so much better than my dull face.

    Healthy Pores and Healthy Skin with B.liv O2 Bubbly Bright

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Have you heard about how oxygen bubble and rice powder can give you a purified and brightened skin? With this technology discovered by b.liv, now every girls can have that brighter and goddess like complexion. b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask will show the magic of how red soft beads can leave you with soft, smoother and glowing skin.

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Tell me am I the only one who changes their skincare products after they have finished or at least after using and repurchase after a year. Same goes to me, I got bored of old skincare easily. It was either a good one or it doesn’t show improvement to my skin or it was just okay. The reason why most of the time I kept changing skincare products are because there are so many skincare products that I wanted to try out.

    With power advertising nowadays I am the one who will easily get attracted. One of the brands which I was eyeing is b.liv. Which thankfully I feel contented when they contacted me and I was really glad upon receiving their products and straight away I give myself a try.

    “Healthy pores, healthy skin, when you believe (b.liv), you shine with confidence”

    THE PRODUCT

    O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask (RM 99/50g)

    This mask combines oxygen bubble and rice powder to brighten and enliven complexion. The product claims that it will leave a “soft foam soaking up impurities while the red soft beads gently melt away to exfoliate your skin – leaving you with soft, smoother and glowing skin.”

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    From the box, it states “Dark and even skin tone” This is what excites me the most about skincare product – brightening. I hate to see my face get burnt or darken. Any product that claiming to provide this keyword is sure a must try one for me.

    The product states “Oxygenating Mask”, which I presume it works differently than a sheet or a face mask. Thus, I think by oxygenating, this is how the bubbly or foam will form. As I always keeping my skincare routine short and fast, using a mask can be time consuming to me but if I have special occasion, I want to have the extra healthy and pretty skin. Let’s see if this b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask is worthy.

    Before that, let’s first jump into what contain inside the box. It comes with a jar of the mask which look s like a cream to me with a small spatula (you need to used this for the hygienic purpose). Scooping the product straight from the jar, I can feel that the texture is not too liquidy but not too thick. When you touch and feel it with your dry fingers, you can feel the red beads. It has a soft like a cream formula which feels like a non-thick moisturizer . It doesn’t have a strong smell which is also an advantage.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    You can see the mask will transform into foam

    Ingredients

    O2 Bubble (purifying) – deeply penetrate into skin to wash away pore-clogging, impurities, debris and excess sebum

    Rice powder (brightening) – it helps moisturize and brighten; leaving skin bright, soft and full of luster

    Red soft beads (exfoliating) – red cellulose beads that melt away to exfoliate dead skin surface, resulting in soft, smoother and glowing skin

    Usage

    1. apply a small amount onto face and gently massage. Bubbles will form.
    2. leave on for 5-10 minutes.
    3. massage once more for deeper cleansing.
    4. rinse with lukewarm water and proceed with remaining skin care steps.

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask

    Storage
    1. Ensure jar is closed properly with the inner lid.
    2. Due to the O2 bubble formulation, it is natural to expect some “cheese holes” appear in the product.
    3. It is important to use the included spatula to avoid any foreign substance added to the product which may affect its quality.
    4. Don’t use your fingers to scoop the mask out of the jar as that could cause it to bubble up.

     

    b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask Review and Result

    My face before applying the mask

    I applied a generous layer on my skin and leave it. The initial liquid form will transform into foam or bubble. The bubble form will wash away all the dirt and sebum. Within few seconds you can feel and hear the sound of bubble and tickling sensation! Interesting right. Which is quite mesmerizing I have never tried anything like this before.

    I can feel how it tickles my skin. I leave it for a good five minutes and after that I massage onto my skin, I can feel the beads are now doing their job. While washing away the excess, the texture doesn’t feel like soapy at all.

    FINAL IMPRESSIONS

    I liked this b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright Oxygenating Mask because it has 3 steps skincare routine – which are cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing . Simple steps save my time! I loved to see my skin doesn’t dry after rinsing. I need to mention that I have dry skin. This mask can helps to cleanse and exfoliate your face. My skin feels so smooth and I also could see my skin have a brighter and clearer complexion after using it.

    My face after using the mask. Not much different if you compare with before, but I can feel my skin become softer

    From what it claims to give, I can feel how it purified, exfoliated and moisturize d my skin. After using it few times, I discovered my skin wasn’t dull like before. I am going to try this for a bit longer with an addition of the sheet masks to really experience if this product can give me the “Dark and even skin tone”

    I am also excited to try their masks which come in 3 different ranges – soothe me now soothing bio-cellulose mask, hydrate away moisturizing bio-cellulose mask and age eraser youth preserving bio-cellulose mask. The mask retails at RM 129 /4pcs (box).

    “Bio-cellulose is a specialized nano scale fiber structure that fits perfectly like your second skin. it serves as a high volume serum reservoir i.e. holds moisture while allowing air to transfer freely and skin can breathe better. It is 30 nanometers fiber increases extra contact surface area for crevices and wrinkles ; maximizing the absorption of effective essence”

    Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask – moisturizing + revitalizing + hydrating (for all skin types)

    Age Eraser Youth Preserving Bio-Cellulose Mask – youth preserving + firming + fine line reducing (for all skin types)

     

    Since my skin need hydration the most, I tried using the Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask. “With Hydrate Away Moisturizing Bio-Cellulose Mask, it is Clinical Proven Result of Nano Bio-Cellulose Mask that it will gives a moisturizing and hydrating result to your skin”

    Inside the packet, the mask comes in three layer. The middle of it is the mask. The mask itself feel like a gel and stick to your face nicely. Wait for 20 minutes and the result is, my skin feel so soft and refreshing. I am really loving the result!

    This mask will give your skin a quick moisturizer and you won’t be surprise because it is proven to provide skin hydration level increased by 15.6% after 2 hours of single use and provide skin hydration level increased by 16.1% after 4 hours of single use (*Results based on an independent clinical study, individual may vary).

    All the Things Happen Last Month (Monthly Highlights & Favourites) + Freebies *Monthly Expenses Trackers*

    Hello all…it has been a long time since I updated, so long and I really missed being here again. The last post I shared was What’s in My March 2017. I hope it is not too late to wish all of you Selamat Hari Raya!! I still can’t believe that I left for a while, I mean for three months? I never knew when I will be sharing a post again because I never really set in mind and let the time heal by itself and I just said to myself do not pressure yourself and take your time to write.


    Back to the topic, it is already July and guess what? It is my favourite month of the year because…it is my birthday month! I cannot wait for the upcoming birthday treat I planned for myself (yeah girl ain’t gonna wait for angels to come and make me happy).

    So for the past few months where have I been? Well, I am still like before nothing change actually but I can’t find the right time to write. I am always tired after work and I mostly keep myself occupied with watching dramas and somehow I like to be alone and enjoy the free time I have. But that doesn’t mean I don’t pampered myself with something exciting each month. So, let’s jump into All the Things Happen Last Month – this consists of a sum of What’s in My April, May and June 2017 all lump together because let’s be honest, nothing much happen.


     

    All the Things Happen Last Month

    Personally I think that I am in the phase where I value my time so much. I want everything to go in order as I planned and being that, I hate whenever something just popped out and ruin my time. I get so stressed out when I couldn’t finish something on time and that can make me go sour for the rest of the day.

    I also feel I am doing things without thinking it twice because I am so sick of doing lots of things for a short time. I hate that my company trying to cut cost by letting us work like shit. Each million bucks *coughshitcough* we got are for the company not the staff. I don’t feel I need to work harder like before because what’s the use right?

    Other than that, I am so thankful I am surrounded by a group of friends who are crazy like me (you know who you are, gadis gadis haha), and I can’t express enough if they weren’t there each time.

    A Court of Thorn and Roses Review

    I finish reading A Court of Thorn and Roses last month and I happy I pick this book to read because it was so damn good. If you followed my Instagram, I already wrote a short review of this book.

    I am trying to write a proper book review but to share and write a good book review on my blog I think I am still not good tough. Can any of you share on how to write a good book review?

    I also have been buying lots of books last month. This are all the books bought.

    Currently I am reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber and I have long way to go #fightingTyra

    This month too I am going to buy more books, because it’s my Birthday Treat month for MPH club members! I get to have 15% less on all books and earn 2x member points. Isn’t that exciting? I am so cannot wait for it! And hopefully I still can redeem my points so that mean I can buy more books.

    Last month was the finale season for two of my favourite shows, Prison Break and Pretty Little Liars. First let’s talk about Prison Break. This last season was so so nerve wrecking. I am so happy I get to see Wentworth Miller on screen again gah I was his avid fans since the season premiere okay. After so much troubles, so many speculation on the series, I am truly happy they end it perfectly beautiful.

    Now, let’s move with Pretty Little Liars. I feel like had too many headache since the show started.  This show actually end guys. Can’t you believe it? After 7 f*cking seasons. 7 f*cking years of waiting. Though I could not wait or what I mean was I am getting too tired to follow each episode but at last…it ended. I feel like those who started to watch since the beginning can take a deep breath now.

    Next show I was watching is Produce 101 Season 2. It’s a Korean reality show where they audition and pick 11 best of the best candidates to form a boy group call as Wanna One. I am so happy my favourites – Daniel, Ji Hoon, Guan Lin, Dae Hwi made it to top 11 but I am so sad Samuel and Jonghyun didn’t. Can’t wait for their debut!

    Which one is your favourite Wanna One member?

    Other shows I have watched are Hero Seorang Cinderella and Andainya Takdir. Malay dramas sometimes can be a bit like urgh so boring and menyampah but you still watch till the end right? Yeah that mix feelings I felt for HSC. The reason I watched because ada Fazura je. I never doubted her acting but this one with Fattah is just meh. The chemistry was not there.

    Then there comes Andainya Takdir. I think the story is not the so typical malay drama you have watched. Shukri Yahya acting is bravo guys. I just wish he can win more award than the ‘kayu actor’ *youknowwhoright*

    Beauty Products I Love

    There’s a lot of beauty stuff slash makeup stuff I bought. To list everything might take too long, so here is the list of what I have been loving so far:-

    Skincare:-

    Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

    Aloe Vera Gel

    I added this two in my skincare regime now. Both products provides moisture to my face especially on Raya day because I think the weather on that days were so hot kan. There are other products I have tried but it was just okay for me. For future I think I want to try out Laneige line and I have been eyeing the starter kit one on Hermo before I purchase the whole set. Anyone can give me little review on Laneige skincare line?

    Next is, the makeup stuff I have been loving lately, which are:-

    Too Face Born This Way Foundation

    Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Foundation

    Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless Powder

    Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

    Tarte Tartelette In Bloom Palette

    TheBalm Mary Lou Manizer

    Benefit Hoola Bronzer

     

    I can’t wait for the short trip I have planned for the upcoming week. I really hope my work won’t ruin everything. I think I should worry about work a lil bit less and I really hope better opportunities will come. Wish me luck okay. To think back what I have sacrificed for the last 2 years makes me wanna cry so hard.

    What makes me excited again this month is….drum rolls…. GAME OF THRONES! 16th July please come faster baby……

    What are you looking forward this month?

    Wait! Since this month is my favourite month, I am going to share my own ‘Monthly Expenses Tracker’ just for you. This is an editable copy (in excel btw) for your easy usage. Hope this is useful for you!

    Till then, talk to you soon.

    My Everyday Makeup Routine (Drugstore Version)

    My Everyday Makeup Routine

    As I mentioned previously on my night skincare routine, I do wear makeup on everyday basis but I am not a professional when come to doing makeup. I just wear what is necessary to make my face look presentable as I am working in an office and most of the time I do need to meet lots of people. But you know, I enjoyed learning and applying makeup nowadays.

    As I am still collecting the high end makeup product, right now I am using the drugstore brand on regular basis. I am too shy to actually share this because during all this picture were taken, my face look so puffy and my dark circle was at the worst time. I could not put this post on draft and drag it to be completed because ‘oh my face look horrible now’ and c’mon just make it work girl, ain’t nobody got perfect skin everyday right.

    So, this is my everyday makeup routine
