Makeup is all about fun and self-expression in my book so I’m totally on board with L’Oréal Paris’ new name and brand direction.
L’Oréal is a trusted brand that’s been around for ages (since 1909!). I remember growing up with it and getting my first ever foundation from their brand years ago. So the rebranding actually came as a surprise – a good one. 😉
They’re now known as L’Oréal Paris Makeup Designer. So what’s behind the longer name?
Don’t just wear makeup, design your look!
The brand is actually encouraging everyone who uses their products to exercise their freedom and self-expression using makeup. They want you to actually design your whole look. It’s 2016, after all.
Hello, my loves. I’m back with another skin care review cos as you all know by now, I’m pretty obsessed with giving my skin some TLC.
Quite recently, this obsession became a lot more intense as my skin has been acting out. 😦 From having dry skin for over 2 decades, I’m now dealing with something that’s so new to me – combination skin. I blame the crazy heat and the hormonal rebalancing that’s been going on. Pfft.
Just in time for this sudden skin shift, I was contacted by the people behind Korean skin care brand Sorabee to do a review on their skincare products. I was kind of hesitant at first due to my skin’s current state. However, after being given more information about the range, I changed my mind.
Sorabee‘s Balancing range promised to be suitable for any skin type – something that I’m in dire need of since my skin has been so weird. Sometimes, it’s oily and sometimes, it’s extra dry. Extreme combination skin, anyone? Ugh, can’t wait for this phase to be O-V-E-R.
The range’s products also contain marine collagen extracted from Sea Stars (star fishes) which helps in hydrating and balancing out combination skin.
Shall I walk you through the products?
Right before my husband and I left for Manila, my dear friend Samia and I shot another video together! This time, we took on strobing and contouring!
Check out which one loves which! And hopefully, this video may also be helpful to people trying to decide which of the two may be best for them for a certain makeup look!
Hello, my loves. I’m back with another review and this time, it’s going to be about this product that I didn’t expect to fall in love with.
I’ve tried a lot of serums and creams that’s supposed to slow down the ageing process and I have to say that this is one of the products that I really loved. I’m going to share with you a video review on it but if you’d rather read about it for more details, you will find all the information after the jump!
When I was first approached by Beaunistry to review Osyean, I thought it was gonna be just like every product out there. The beauty industry does have companies that tend to oversell and under deliver. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the results I got from it. Of course, no product is perfect. So you will have to read on till the end for my balanced review on this product. 🙂
But before we start, a little background on my skin. I’m aware that not all products work similarly for every person who tries it. There are many factors to this but I think the biggest one would have to be one’s skin type. Since it worked well for me, I guess I should tell you about my skin first.
I personally have dry skin that tends to be dull unless I am religious with the scrubbing and brightening products. I am also prone to sun damage. I think this product works really well with people who have a similar skin type to mine. (If you have oily/sensitive skin, do let me know how this product works for you! I’m very much interested!)
What is Osyean?
Sharing with you guys the 3-minute makeup challenge my good friend Samia and I did recently.
Samia is an amazing makeup artist and is one of my closest friends here in Malaysia. I had an amazing time filming with her! Do check out her blog, Instagram, and Youtube channel! 😉
Now, here comes the video! Excuse my cursing – I did admit to you guys that I’m not as diplomatic as I should be on my free time 😉 – and my humungous hormonal zit brought about by a recent tiny change in my lifestyle (which I may be sharing with you guys soon!).
Here’s the link to the Bean Boozled Challenge we uploaded on Samia’s channel: CLICK!

Right before 2015 ended, I updated my hair colour and I’ve been getting a lot of compliments for it. Along with the compliments came the questions and inquiries so what better way to address all of that than via a short blog post? 😉
I should have posted this earlier since I did the treatment before the new year. However, time and commitments got the best of me yet again. *excuses*
As most of you might know by now, I decided to take the plunge last May and get my full head of hair coloured. Prior to that, I only experimented with my fringe back in my university days where I went from blue to pink to purple.
The change last May was pretty drastic since I went from dark brown to bronde. It was a big change yet I loved it! Here’s a little throwback:
I had a great run with my bronde hair and the honey-toned highlights that accentuated my curls like no other.
However, we all know that at some point, you have to update your colour as regrowth can get the best of you. Andy Ho did a great job on my first colour and it took months before my regrowth became noticeable. I loved how my hair was so low maintenance especially during our Europe trip last August. It looked great without having to put too much effort.
For our trip to Japan for New Year’s, I wanted something a little bit more cool-toned to go with current temperatures in Tokyo and Nikko so when EVO invited my friend Samia and I for a hair colouring session, I just couldn’t resist.
Before I get into detail about the colour and the procedure, let me just show you the ‘before’ photo of my hair:
Uploading this quickly right before we head for the airport! Going on another trip for the New Year’s so I thought I’d leave you lovelies with something first!
