Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Good day peeps!

I would categorize this as a luxury foundation. I've been wanting this ever since it was launched in early summer if I'm not mistaken. Yet the price tag makes me hesitate to pick up this product until last month. Thanks bae! XOXO

I still haven't got rid of the box because it iz so pwetty!

For RM 137, you get 30ml of product.


But it have several high claims as shown above plus the whole 'born this way' line is supposed to give an impression of a flawless porcelain soft skin.

The bottle look and feel luxurious while maintaining its simplicity.

The frosted bottle actually add weights to the product and the pump makes it convenient to use as opposed to pumpless foundation.

The swatch look darker due to my lighting, sorry about that :( 
Its the perfect match for my skin tone. I tried the tester and I was surprised on how well it blends with my skin.

The foundation is unscented but it does have its natural scent, mild smell of chemicals mixed together.

Its a little bit thick but once blended it feels light and it provide amazing coverage! A thin layer would be enough if you have slight discoloration, redness and faded scars. My skin become airbrushed and it has semi matte finish. I've usually dust a small amount of loose powder just to lock it in place.

It last long and its not sticky at all. I can say it suits my skin pretty well without causing breakouts or tiny bumps on my skin. 

As for the claims, I'm a little skeptical but maybe it'll show its effect over time. 

Beside the price tag, I can't find anything bad with this foundation. That's how good it is!

Take care! XOXO

(Update) Etude House Precious Mineral Cover and Bright Fit BB Cream Review

Hello peeps!

My local Etude House store was having a Buy 1 Free 1 event so I ended up buying this BB cream (eventhough I have tons of them already) and the Curl and Fix Mascara. I have watched a video review by Jolse and it says this BB has a matte finish and I was hooked. 

This is probably the simplest concept Etude House has ever came with.
The tube is glossy and thin compared to its sisters. It has this ice princess vibe to it LOL.

It also came in 35g instead of the normal 50g product.

You get less product but seriously, how are you gonna finish THAT much of product anyway. 

Shade - W24 Honey Beige (Darkest shade available)

I actually like the pointed dispenser. It doesn't get too dirty while dispensing the product and it also dispense nicely according to my liking.

To be honest, this is like a fuss free and travel friendly BB cream.

I can tell someone have made an amazing effort with the packaging and presentation of the product.

The overall undertone is yellow with a hint of grey. 

This product claim to "smoothly glides onto skin with its Double Fitting Concealer Technology"

Quick translation; YOU DON'T NEED CONCEALER
True to some extent. I personally think its a fail on my dark circles but on my redness, it covers well. It does glide smoothly on my skin, doesn't tug on or anything but aren't all liquid foundation are?

Its not matte as advertised. I still find it quite dewy for my liking and a tad tacky before setting it with powder (I dislike tacky face). Its lightly scented, synthetic yet fresh. 

I have only tried it for once and I am ALLERGIC to it.
My face got so itchy when I was wearing this. The itchiness concentrates just right above my brows and few other spots on my face.

Its the weirdest thing.

When I removed it at the end of the day, I can see red spots on the itchy area probably due to me scratching it all day long. :(

I tried it yesterday and its actually a semi-matte finish. It is not tacky at all when applied in thin layer. 

I also did not experience any allergic reaction and it actually feels comfortable because it didn't feel heavy on the skin. Personally, now it seems like this one is the best compared to its sisters.

It can look a little bit greyish though, something all Korean BB cream tend to do on my skin.

Take care! XOXO

A'pieu Air-Fit Nude Foundation No. 23 Review

Hello readers.

Recently, I've bought this foundation out of pure curiosity. This is my first time purchasing from A'pieu so I really want to buy something decent from them. I found this foundation from their website and to my surprise I was unable to find a single review about this product (except in Thai or Vietnamese which obviously I can't understand). Hence I decided to write a review on this cutesy product. 

Can we take a moment to appreciate the kawaii-ness of the concept??
Its simple yet eye catching at the same time.

I bought the darkest shade available which is No. 23.
I think they have one or two more shades on the fairer side.

The first time I saw this, my opinion was "wow, its so small".
It comes in an 18g bottle and comparing it to the Etude House BB cream, it look so tiny LOL
Thankfully, its quite cheap (KRW 7,900 = MYR 28.90)

I have never own a foundation with a dropper. This type of product does have an expensive vibe don't you think so? 

It dispenses the product really well but one time, I accidentally stain my cloth with the foundation since I normally use the dropper directly on to my face :(

It feels light weight and it blends easily with synthetic brush and beauty blender. It smells familiar, like some sort of Johnson's baby powder. It sets quite fast and turns powder upon blending. 

Normally I would apply to the half of my face first then proceed to the other side. Surprise, surprise, it is not tacky at all! It even out my skintone beautifully despite having a light-medium coverage.

Shade wise, it is not the perfect match yet I have little issue with that since I wear hijab. It definitely didn't match my neck colour LOL. 

Wear time is normal. It doesn't move around my skin but it does transfer a little to my blotting paper especially on my nose. Hence I always powder my face every 4-5 hours. 

Wearing the foundation

Ain't it teeny tiny?!

Overall I recommend this foundation since its budget friendly and suitable for oily skin. I would really love to try another A'pieu product, do put some suggestion in the comment box below.

Take care! XOXO

🎓 New Semester Goals 🎓

Hello peeps!

I've been missing for a few months already I believe. My interest in writing has dramatically decreases these days. However, I suddenly have a profound desire to write today. The semester has just started a month ago so I figure its still not too late to post an entry of my goals to achieve. :) 

In the past, I've always had goals every time a new semester started. While most goals remain unachived, I manage to cross off a few of them by the end of it. I've never done anything like this before because to me,goals are kind of a personal thing. But. change is inevitable so here I am, typing with ideas oozes out of my mind box.

Letz get to biznez!

1. Get a part time job
I have no experience of working. I kid you not. All my life, I've been financially supported by my parents and goverment scholarship. I want to feel how its like to work "makan gaji" and to understand the struggle of earning income to survive. I know it sounds a bit exaggerated.

 I also started to feel bad by living off of my parents money. They always say 'oh dont worry, we can support you. You just have to study hard and do well in exam,' but till when? They're not getting younger yet they still have a lot to pay *getting a little bit emotional here* 

Of course I need to ensure my study is not jeopardized. After all, it is the sole reason Im enrolling in university, to get a degree scroll.

On the other hand, I need the money to fuel my hobbies which are makeups and foods hehehe.

2. Exercise and get fit

This has been a long time goal for me, and I've failed. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. The problem is within me. Im lacking in discipline and willpower. I want it but I didn't work hard for it. 

This time around, I will keep pushing myself and stick with the plan. This goal has been delayed for too long, its time to really make it come true.

3. Focus on being rather than doing
I can't pinpoint exactly where I read the sentence above. But it hit hard, so hard on me. It was exactly what I've been doing throughout my early adulthood. I want to focus on being nicer, being a good listener, being a friend in need, being a better me; inside and out. being adventurous, being open to new ideas and experiences.

The 20s is my prime time to improve any aspect of my self that I want to be better. Let's be honest, the 20s is when we have the time and the energy for everything but we don't have money. So why not focus on using the time and energy we have to improve ourselves? Take baby steps. :)

Peripera 10cm Pride Up BB Cream Review

Hi unicorns!

Yet another BB cream review. I couldn't resist the temptation since it was on sale for only RM20! Peripera is a sister brand of Clio. Peripera is somewhat give out the early teen vibes which is why I tend to avoid their products. However Clio is a little bit pricey at my local department store which the sole reason why I almost never buy any Clio items.

Long story short,I finally own this BB cream after eyeing it for quite some time. :)

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara Review

Hello readers!

I bought this during my recent visit to Sephora. I don't fancy the brow on fleek trend on Youtube as I prefer the straight brow popularized by K-pop idols. Plus I never take brows seriously despite the 'your brows can frame your face' claim. But now I think its time to polish my brow game. So I decided to buy this little guy.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer Review (Medium Neutral)

Good day beautifuls!

This is a splurge.

I always went into Sephora and left without buying anything because I just cant decide what to buy. I've had a few items in my mind such as the Too Faced Chocolate Bar and Bare Minerals Serum Foundation but they were just out of my budget.

So I opt for a cheaper (yet still expensive) product which is this concealer. I've seen Kathleen Lights and Jaclyn Hill raved about this concealer,which is the sole reason why I chose to buy it. The power of influence and recommendation guys.

Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack Review (Pure Pink)

Hello earthlings!

The beauty community is going crazy over this revolutionary lip product that originates from South Korea. At first I was not intrigued to try it because im into liquid lipstick these days. However my aunt gave me one of her's so I thought I'll give it a try and write a review.

Maybelline Fit Me! Matte and Poreless Foundation 235 Pure Beige Review

Hello unicorns!

I've recently purchased this foundation after reading and watching countless reviews about it.It was tough finding your shade when all you have are swatches on google which have different lighting,edits,etc.

I went with Pure Beige hoping it matches my skintone and it amazingly did! YASSSSSSSS *Jaclyn Hill voice* 

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer Review

Hello dreamers!

I've noticed that i've consistently use more or less the same product in my daily makeup for the past few months.Sometimes i would play around with my eye makeup for example but normally,these products are my daily staples and they work wonderfully!

Aritaum Pore Master Sebum Control Primer Review

Hi earthlings!

What a very very long time no see!

A friend of mine bought this primer in Korea for me.I never saw any online shop promotes this product,much more reviews on it and yet i took the risk anyway because i was looking for something cheap to replace my Benefit Porefessional pore primer.The concept and design is almost the same as Benefit's right?
