[REVIEW] Etude House Color My Brows

I once said that I don't really have to wear brow colour or brow pencil for my brow coz it looks just fine but when I tried my first brow pencil last year, I realized that it was totally wrong. In fact, my brow look so messy when I did not use any brow pencil.

Etude House did released new colours for this brow colour but since they're more to light/coloured in colour, so I pass that. I have naturally dark hair so I'm gonna stick with dark coloured eyebrows too. This product colour is not the newest release but I just want to share :D
Product Info :
Name : Color My Brows
Brand : Etude House
Production : Made in Korea
I love the new packaging!It looks so girly :)



The instruction probably said to stroke your brow hair backwards to make sure all the hairs coated carefully then the second step, you brush them back properly to make it look proper.


The colour might not seems too dark here but it's enough to coloured my brow hair :D

Note : There is a picture on how it look on my eyebrow but I misplaced it. Would take a new one and update this post.


I'm curious on how eyebrow colour would turn out on me because previously I thought that they're used to colour the brow hair permanently. It turns out that I was wrong..haha

I decided to try this brow colour from Etude House because Qoo10 did quite cheap sales for this so I just grab it without thinking further. It's sad that I actually bought one, I really should have bought more because this is really nice on my brow!

At first I thought that the colour is too brown for my eyebrow since I naturally had dark hairs but it gradually turn out nice later. The brush is really easy to use and it did not take much time to finish colouring the eyebrows. I could say that it did not need help from the brow pencil if you follow the instructions given because if you do, there's no sparse seen after applying.

This brow colour is pretty waterproof too. It did not budge if cleanse with tap water and furthermore, it stays on my brow for the whole day too. I'm not sure why this got the second place in Get It Beauty because personally I like it so much.

But I really prefer if Etude House can released a darker shade for the eye brow colour. It would look so much better on me or with girls that born with dark hair.

I rate this ;


I would love to try more brow colour product that is good so please recommend me some!

[REVIEW] Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream

Hey there pretty!
It seems that almost all of my class tomorrow got cancelled which is a very good news!lol
So I decided to post up a review today. This has been sitting in the draft for so long and yes, I recently re-purchased two of this gel cream again (as you might see on my instagram) :D

Product Info :
Name : Snail Recovery Gel Cream
Brand : Mizon
Production : Made in Korea.
Volume : 40ml
Purchased from : Testerkorea
A very simple looking tube but it's pink! :D


I love that the first ingredient is the snail secretion filtrate.


Transparent in color.It's so easy to blend.


I saw that this gel cream got good reviews from other blogger and coincidentally, testerkorea is having sales so I manage to grab this to try. 

Now I already finished my second tube and I really love it! The gel cream is so light on skin and it dries really fast too. Sometime I may be too excited to put on extra gel on my face so it'll feel a bit sticky at first but no worries, it dries really fast and leaves a silky smooth skin. I especially love that this is the perfect base before applying make up because it doesn't mix with my foundation.

I also notice after overnight applying this cream, my redness is lessen by the next morning. I always had redness overload at night and I don't know what's the reason..haha
Even sometimes when I don't really wear skincare at night, my mom would ask if I had allergies because my face is really red at night. I don't know the cause either but it's not from using this gel cream.

A 40ml tube can last me for about a month if I regularly wear them. As for longer term effects, I can't really say much about that because the effects last as long as I wear the gel cream. For wrinkle care, I guess I didn't see much improvement in that especially on my under eye. I think this can't beat my late sleeping lifestyle.

Lastly, I really recommend this to those who had oily skin because it might be too dry to those who had dry skin. This would work on combination skin as well but I suggest you use another moisturising product to add more moisture to your skin.

Thanks for reading!

I rate this;

I may be blogging again this week due to a lot of cancelled class..haha

[REVIEW] Cres Wellness Experience@Jusco Cheras Selatan

Hi there guys!
Today I want to share my experience with Cres Wellness Spa @Aeon Cheras Selatan.
Their representative contacted me if I want to do a review post of my experience and I said yes right away because I happened to visit Cheras Selatan on the date :D

These are some of the photos that I manage to capture..I wanted to capture lots but people
are staring at me while taking picture and its embarrassing..haha

The spa is associated with Cellnique!

A display of their products :)

Close pic. :D

 The counters, the staff try to run when I took pictures..lol

Some of the waiting customers.

The right side of waiting table.

me with the lady(sorry, I forgot to ask her name!). She is so shy to take picture with me and so do me..haha

(look at that awkward face XD)

It was done in 22th February and supposedly I came on the afternoon but because my friend's fault, I happened to be late and I text the spa if I could change time because I'm afraid I could not arrive in time and they straight away called me said if I can do it on 4pm. I'm really thankful that they manage to set another time for me :D

So I arrive 10 minutes early for the evening session and they serve me  tea when I'm waiting :)
I'm too nervous to speak or ask anything while waiting because it is my first time..haha

Before the treatment, I was asked to fill a form if I do have any sickness or any skin sensitivity because this treatment involving massage. Based on the form they gave me, I think the massage is based on Chinese vital points treatment because they pointed out the parts where this and those sickness could be heal. So after a few minutes, they ask me to go to a room to start my spa treatment. They arranged a Fruity Spa Treatment for me on the day :)

The room was half dark, you know like those calming room people do massage, so I barely took proper pictures there. I'm not even sure if they allow that..haha.. Since I'm alone in the room because my friend is waiting outside so I had to take the photos myself.

I was accompanied by one aesthetician lady(the one in the pic). She was too shy to talk and I almost did not heard her..haha I wanted to say that it's okay if she want to speak Malay instead but I'm too shy myself as well XD. Before the treatment, I was asked if I want to use rose oil or another one(I can't remember) for the massage so I choose Rose oil because I wanted something that smells good for my body. The lady asked me to change into the spa clothes piece and I'm required to get fully naked ..>_< 


Then I was asked to lay down to start the massage. The aesthetician lady applied the rose oil first and massage throughout my back. omg..it feels REALLY GOOD to get massage!At first she focused on my shoulder, probably because I was too stiff and she asked if its hurt and I said no. It really doesn't feel hurt at all. After 10-15 minutes, the lady start to use scrub on my skin for another 10 minute and repeat with rose oil after she finished scrubbing. My front and my back were done with the same steps. The lady massage every part of my body except for "ehem".. :D I almost fell asleep because it feels so good plus the room is dark, it is really perfect for a nap..hehe XD


Next, I was asked to go to the next room which is bathing! She leave me in the room alone for my own sweet time in the tub..lol ..The first thing I enter the room is that I noticed a sweet smell so I guess it came from the tub :D The room itself is very spacey inside, it feels like a private bathroom for myself..lol


They prepared this along while I'm bathing and I actually wondered what's that white thing..It turns out to be a lotion..(I did taste it to make sure what is that..haha). 

Bubble bath time~~~ I did camwhore a bit but I would not published those privacy photos XD

After treatment

 This is the picture I took before and after the treatment. Sorry for the different in lighting. I wanted to make sure that I took the picture right away after the treatment.

My heel. It was really rough before because I really walk a lot and gained weight too.

My knee. Gosh, my knee looks so horrible. I did sports when I was young so that's why there are a lot of bruises..kkk

My elbow. Well, the picture speaks for itself!haha

The treatment took about 1 hours and half I guess and I felt really refresh after the treatment. My whole body fell really light *_*

I really recommend everyone to try Cres Wellness spa for once and you'll get hooked! There are various types of massage you can choose. There are Shiatsu, slimming, stress reliever massage and more!

[REVIEW] Stylenanda 3CE Super Slim Pen Eye Liner


I manage to spent a bit of my time this week to blog!yeay~
So I'll be reviewing this pen liner which one the item that I bought in my small haul :)
Product Info :
Name : Super Slim Pen Eye Liner #Brown
Brand : Stylenanda 3CE
Production : Made in Korea
Colors Available : Black and Brown
Purchased from : Testerkorea
Slick!

Stylenanda seal. Beware of fakes!

Thin brush for precise lining <3


This is the before and after I wash my hand. Somehow the line is removed by only water but leave a grey-black undertone to it. The top is one swatch, followed by twice swatch for the middle and three swatches for the bottom line. It doesn't have that much difference in terms of color though because the liquid color is really light to begin with, almost unnoticeable for medium skin tone like me.

I pointed out on how the color transfer to my eyelid after applied ;( That one thing that I dislike the most. I'm not sure how many swatches I need to get that color on my eyes, probably 10 times lining.

Aside from that, there is a little smudge on my under eyes after a few hours(not in the picture) though at the end of the day, the liner is actually quite tough to remove with water so I'm not sure whether to classified this as waterproof or not.

The brush is really smooth but I felt a bit ticklish with it but I really like that it is really easy to create a thin lines with this. There is no noticeable smell to it if you're curious.

Overall, I think this eyeliner is just so-so in terms of color. To those who had lighter skin or prefer to have a very light brown for eyeliner, you might like this. I might have rated this good if they improve on the color transfer part as well as the color intensity.


I rate this ;

Thank you for reading :)

[REVIEW] Etude House Skin-fit Foundation


Last time I wondered why did I even included this foundation into my cart but then I realize that it was an impulse buy. haha. I wanted to buy the Face Conditioning Cream instead of this but it's okay, I'm quite happy that I bought this.

Product Info :
Name : Skin-Fit Foundation
Brand : Etude House
Production : Made in Korea
Net Weight : 30g / 1.05 oz.
Shade : W13
Purchased from : Testerkorea








I always had problem with Etude House BB cream - they breaks me out except the older one, I mean the old old version..haha.. Because this is an impulse buy so I have to try it or it gonna be my mom collection of my unwanted cream because she don't have any problem with them. I've tried this for the past three days and it didn't breaks me out! yeayy~ 

I noticed that the smell of this foundation is different from Etude House usual BB product so I guess, I'm allergic to their fragrance after all?This has a more calming smell to it :)

There are two shades available for this foundation which is lesser than their previous released. I'm more to yellow colored skin, so I choose W13 but it's still a bit lighter than mine.

Compared to Etude House Precious Mineral Cotton Fit, this foundation is a bit moist and easier to spread and give a glow finish to my skin which I love.

The coverage is pretty amazing. I could say it has a medium coverage. It did correct my skin tone and cover the minor redness of my skin. If I need a bit of extra coverage, I would add few layers to the problem part and it would not looks cakey even after a few hours.

The oil control is pretty good too. Even though my skin will start oily after 3 hours, it doesn't mess up my make up and I just have to blot the oil. The cream doesn't easily disappear because it is hardly transfer.


Left - Bare skin.  Right - Applied with foundation.

Overall, I really love this foundation! 
I rate this ;

I'm wearing the foundation :)

Thank you for reading.
Any questions, let me know :)
