Love : Elianto Fairy Lip Color Kit 02 (Orange and Nude)

These are the colours found in the Elianto Fairy Lip Color Kit in 02.
I will be showing you swatches of these and a little review on this soon!
I am in love with this lip kit as the application is smooth and the price is so affordable!
These are highly pigmented and I love mixing the colours to create a new lip colour.
Will speak to you soon on this!

Happiness Is Love

"Whenever you face problems, think positive. Never look back and think negatively about life, for if you do, you stop yourself in solving your problems and in being happy."
-A lesson in life I just learnt.

Back To August

This is me standing here in front of you saying sorry for that night..
I'll go back to December all the time.
-Taylor Swift, Back To December.

My version :
This is me standing here in front of you wishing you'd come back,
I'll go back to August all the time.
- Me. Lol.

Yes, a nonsensical ramble you just saw.


Yes, I will be reviewing masks!
So excited!
Really loving My Beauty Diary, cos it works!
See you soon!

Love : Eyeko London Lips and Fat Balm Love!

Okay, this review is going to be bombarded with lots of photos.
Reason being?
I am fascinated by the pretty packaging Eyeko gives, as usual. And the products are currently on top of my favourites list!
Recently, I did a huge Eyeko purchase and bought plenty of lip products. Among the London Lips I got for myself was the Mayfair (given to me in a gift pack) , Primrose Hill and Soho ones. Actually, I bought two sets of London Lips but the remaining ones were already given off to friends and family members as birthday presents. I am planning to buy more for friends and family members when Christmas comes. Hooray for Christmas presents!
Anyway, I got the Fat Balms as well. But today I will only do reviews on two new loves, the Eyeko Fat Balm in Raspberry and the London Lips in Primrose Hill.
I promise I will do more reviews on the remaining London Lips and Fat Balms soon!
I will also do nail polish reviews soon! ;)
Firstly, my star product, the London Lips will be reviewed, followed by the fat balm. =)
They come in a set (Pucker Up!) along with the Liptastik in Loudmouth (which I gave to my mum for her birthday -.-), planning to get Loudmouth for myself soon as my mum raves about it.

The gorgeous packaging.

See the specks of gold shimmers? Gorgeous.

Primrose Hill is the best!

So, the moment I received the packaging, I was in awe.
This packaging is really classy. I love the London logos!

The ultra glossy and pretty Primrose Hill.
I can't help gushing about its beauty!

The lip swatch. Me loves!

The moment I took a whiff of this packaging (yes, packaging) I can immediately smell the scent of fresh bubblegum lingering around. Yummy!
Despite being described as sweetly scented with a fruity fragrance, I beg to differ. Honestly, to me there wasn't any fruity fragrance at all. Instead, this smells so bubblegummy, it reminds me of Hershey's Bubble Yum bubblegum in Original. Lol. =)

The description of this flavour is as below :
Primrose Hill
A pretty lilac shimmer for girls on the go. This suits-all shade is ultra flattering.

To me, the swatch in the Eyeko website is slightly different from the one in real life, so yes, you gotta check blogs for this.
The colour of this lip gloss is actually kind of lilac, a dark lilac. This has ultra pretty gold specks in it, making it gorgeous from every lip angle.
Eyeko described this as being non-sticky. Actually, it IS non-sticky, but due to its thick texture, it somehow becomes sticky.

My overall rating :
Packaging : 5/5 stars.
Love the London logos. Love the applicator. You can directly apply the lip gloss to your lips using the slightly sharp solid shape applicator.
The lip gloss is approximately 13.5g, which is decent. I use this everyday, and it is amazing!
Colour : 5/5 stars.
Gorgeous! Although it is something like a dark lilac, it goes pretty clear with a hint of colour and lots of shimmer. I love it!
This, like what the Eyeko website has described, definitely suits every skin tone.
Scent : 5/5 stars.
Honestly, the first time I took a sniff of this lip gloss, I was overwhelmed with the strong sweet scent. However, the moment I applied this onto my lips, the scent sort of 'toned down' and I start to fall for it! This does not have a taste, (I actually expected this to taste like bubblegum, but I was wrong) and I am glad this does not taste eugh! , or what we say, chemical. Cos certain lip glosses smell great but taste so chemical, I would just chuck them into the dustbin as they make me puke.
This smells like bubblegum, so all you bubblegum fans, good news for you! And for me! ;)
Quality : 4/5 stars.
I love this lip gloss so much, I actually use it even at home. I know, crazy me.
The texture of this lip gloss is thick, making it appear sticky, although its not. Trust me, I did a sticky test on this lip gloss and it passed. The only time it appears sticky is when its applied on your lips, as this, like I said, is thick. Therefore, when the wind blows, somehow do expect your hair to stick to your lips, cos it happened to me.
I love the quality of this lip gloss. It is moisturising, super glossy and super shimmery. I received compliments from using this lip gloss.
The staying power is decent. Maximum staying power is 5 hours, provided you just drink water and did not eat.
Price : 3/5 stars.
Now this kind of bugged me. Lol. It is worth $10, which is RM32.
This lip gloss lasts only 6 months after opening, so its like RM5.30 a month? (yes, I actually calculated)
It is kind of worth it, as I love it! And there are other lip glosses more expensive than this. This reminds me of Lancome Juicy Tubes, but I prefer this more.
So overall, I love this! This is my HG lip gloss. ;D
You can buy this here, and use my code E6980 for a free gift!

Next, is also my current love, the Eyeko Raspberry Fat Balm.
I totally love this as this is a MLBB shade. (my lips but better)
I am Chinese, so my skintone is kind of tanned.
Anyway, I totally love love love this shade and I love pairing this up with my Primrose Hill lip gloss.

First, the pretty pretty pictures.

The new packaging!
The description.
SPF 15! (points above excitedly)

Ingredients list.

Now, this has no shimmers in it. It is matte and so, it is perfect as an everyday balm.
The tagline "Does my balm look big in this?" is cheeky. ;D

Description below :
Eyeko Raspberry Fat Balm
Just-bitten lip-look! Keeps lips satin smooth and adds a warm glow to cheeks.

This description is absolutely correct! It gives me a just bitten look on my lips and a blushed look on my cheeks. Reminds me every time I see my boyfriend and sparks fly. *blushes*

Here are my ratings :
Packaging : 5/5 stars.
A winner, as usual!
I got used to the fat applicator (hence the name Fat Balm).
Love it!
Colour : 5/5 stars.
My lips but better.
Very warm. Adds a tinge of glow to my cheeks and lips.
I love wearing this to classes and outings.
Quality : 5/5 stars.
With added SPF 15, this is ultra moisturising.
Highly pigmented, another love!
I like that its matte, no shimmer. Perfect for everydays.
I usually pair this up with the London Lips Primrose Hill.
Scent : 2/5 stars.
Okay, this is a slight disapointment. Unlike the Strawberry and Minty ones, which smells exactly like strawberries and mint, this smells kind of chemical. There is a faint scent of raspberries though.
This tastes okay. There is no chemical taste though, thank goodness.
Price : 4/5 stars.
This is the exact same price with the London Lips. RM32, $10.
I think this is kind of affordable as it is a lip and cheek stain.
And you can't really find these in Malaysia. The closest you can get is Stila's stain and Benefit's Benetint.

Overall, I am impressed with this as well. I will be going to summer camp soon so will be promoting this to friends I will be making! ;D

Oh, and more pictures!
Hand swatch.
Lip swatch.

Oh, and a combo of this and the London Lips Primrose Hill!
Gorgeous, eh?

You can get both of this at
Also, use my code E6980 for a free gift with any purchase above $15!
I hope you enjoy Eyeko as much as I do!

More Reviews, Soon! (And A Rant of Dissapointment)

I know this blog looks like its dead. -.-
I've been away with applications and things. Life is fast paced, and I've gotta catch up..real fast!
Recently, I did a lot of shopping in terms of make up and skincare products, oh, and haircare too.
Fell in love with the Follow Me shampoo, something I did not expect to happen. Honestly, I kind of thought this shampoo is just blah (I know, evil me) , but I was so wrong. Will try doing a review on that particular amazing shampoo soon!
As for make up, I tried the latest mascara from Silkygirl (its not even found in major pharmacies NOR the Silkygirl website). It's called the Eye Opener Mascara, and I have to tell you I am really dissapointed. I am not sure if this mascara has been discontinued, as I could not find it anywhere. It is affordable and well, the dissapointment was because this mascara practically does nothing but colour your lashes! And its not really waterproof (it claimed to be)! After watching some sob movie, I cried and my eyes looked so panda-ish, I could just die. The packaging of this mascara is attractive. However, there is no description whatsoever on what this mascara does to the lashes. And yes, like the description, it does nothing. Also, the mascara is so clumpy, my lashes looked ugly. -.- However, that does not mean I am no longer a Silkygirl fan. I find most of their products effective (in love with their Lash Prism and Lash Maximizer mascaras!) and affordable. Seriously, this is probably the only dissapointment I have of Silkygirl so far.
I will be posting more reviews, soon!
Taking lots of pictures of the products now. Its going to be so exciting, I promise!

One Beauty Sin EVERY Woman Should Never Commit

Is using expired make up products.
I'm pretty sure a lot of you have expired make up items in your room!
They are not recommended to keep, as they may spoil your skin, causing it to break out, etc.
So the best thing is to throw away your expired goods!
Oh, and here are some of the shelf lives of make up products :
Mascara - 6 months
I don't recommend buying an expensive mascara, as after 6 months, you will have to throw it away. Unless you use plenty and plenty of mascara then that's fine.
Lip products - Up to 1 year
If your lip product smells funky, throw it away!
Chances are bacteria is infesting inside! Ewww! Same goes to other make up items.
Face products - Up to 2 years
Eye liner - Up to 1 year
Eye shadow - Up to 1 year
Perfume - Usually 2 years

Will be doing a full post regarding expiry date of goods.
Ciao, for now!

Love : Short Post On Eyeko Cream and Ways On Using It!

I'm sorry for the late updates and all.
Have been really busy lately.
Anyway, I'm sure you all know by now that I am a fan of Eyeko's Tinted Cream.
The Tinted version is fabulous! (I will be doing a post soon on ways on using the Tinted Cream!)
The Eyeko Cream (the famous one, yes yes!) is also a favourite of mine.
However, today you will not be seeing a post reviewing it (from me, that is) as I will be reviewing the Eyeko Cream in a week's time. Awww, sad. I know!
Anyway just a short one on the Eyeko Cream. (the actual review will be up in a week's time)
It is a universal cream colour. Universal as in, its perfect for every women of every skintone.
Yay for every women! ;)
I myself am tanned and I'm so glad this cream blends in really well leaving gold shimmers on my skin! :D SPARKLY!

This cream comes in a cute pink plastic tube.
It is frangrance-free, another plus point!
My mum is also a huge fan of this cream as it helps 'revive' her pale skin tone.
I know, mother's fair, daughter's tanned! -.-

These are swatches of the Eyeko Cream blended in!
Trust me, the pictures do no justice.
I will be posting up more and more pretty sparkly pictures of the cream blended in my skin for you guys to see when I do the review soon!
Without flash.
See, no justice!

I know I am somehow late in reviewing and sharing about the Eyeko Cream, as now people are raving about the Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow.
Honestly, I shrieked with excitement when I saw the Eyeko Cream with Extra Glow; as instead of gold sparkles, they contain silver sparkles. And oh, I love silver!
However I am still saving up for it.(as it costs me about $21.50 (?) for a tube with postage. I am currently not having much money with me.) But I promise I will do a review about the amazing one with Extra Glow once I purchase it and got it!

By the way, if you shop with Eyeko, use this code E6980 in order to get a free gift! ;)

Now, I will hop on to ways in using this Eyeko Cream!
I know a lot of you who own the cream probably wonder.. besides highlighting, what else can I do?
Well, let me tell you.. A LOT!
This cream works wonders! And I mean wonders! ;D
So let's start, shall we?
1. Your hair.
Yes, mix this cream with your leave in conditioner and apply this mixture on your hair strands!
DO NOT apply this mixture on your hair roots as we do not like oily scalp!
2. Your cheeks.
Apply this cream onto your cheeks..especially your cheek bones!
3. Your brows.
Make your brows look 'higher' with this cream.
4. Your legs.
Apply this cream to the mid section of your legs. As in, in the middle of your legs. That way, your legs will look really elongated! Hot!
5. Your eyes.
Apply this as a base before applying your shadow. Trust me, its gorgeous!
6. Your shoulders.
Apply this on your shoulders. And wear and off shoulder something.
That way, as light reflects on your shoulders, you will look really bewitching and pretty!
I really love using this trick for parties and gatherings and I get compliments from it!
7. Your belly.
Lol! Yes! When you are out at the beach, apply this right below your bikini. Near the place where your abs are. Or if you are like me, supposed to be.
That way, you will have the beach bod and trust me, people will envy.
8. Your cupid's bow.
Yes, this is a common one. Apply this onto your cupid's bow after applying lipstick.
Your lips will look really pouty aka Angelina Jolie!
9. Your arms.
Apply this onto your arms when you go out!
Make sure you apply to the middle of your arms. That way your arms will look longer.
10. Mix this with your blusher.
If you have a cream blusher, mix this with your blusher and apply it onto your cheeks like how you apply blusher!
That way your cheeks will look ultra shimmery and you will get the Nars Orgasm feel to it due to its gold sparkles.
11. Mix it with your eye shadow.
If you have powder eyeshadow, mix this with your eyeshadow. Make sure this is evenly mixed.
Trust me, your eyeshadow will look fab!

Alright, that's all for now!
Have fun beautifying yourself with the Eyeko Cream!

Chillax : Bruno Mars ; Just The Way You Are

Oh her eyes, her eyes
Make the stars look like they're not shining
Her hair, her hair
Falls perfectly without her trying

She's so beautiful
And I tell her every day

Yeah I know, I know
When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don't see what I see

But every time she asks me do I look okay
I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Her nails, her nails
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me
Her laugh, her laugh
She hates but I think its so sexy

She's so beautiful
Bruno Mars Just The Way You Are lyrics found on
And I tell her every day

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you're searching for
Then just stay the same

So don't even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

The way you are
The way you are
Girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you're amazing
Just the way you are

Girls, all of us are beautiful just the way we are. ;)
This song is inspiring; even if its from a guy to a girl he loves.
Don't have to change anything, girls, cos you guys are all just beautiful the way you are.
Motto; Never change to please a guy.

Love : Silkygirl 2-in-1 Protective Top and Base Coat

Hello hello!
Today I will be doing a special review on one of the star products every girl MUST HAVE.
Sadly, this thing is available in Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Indonesia only. I'm not sure about other countries.
This baby is a really worthy "I don't mind purchasing 10 bottles of these" item.
Yes, its THAT great!
If you are a mani/pedi girl, you will be saving plenty on this worthy item!
Read on to know why..
This is how the star item looks like.
I'm sorry as I do not have any swatches on how shiny this nail polish base and top coat look on nails.

Click to view the ingredients.
As you have noticed, the bottle is half full. Actually, its half empty.
3/4 of the nail polish base and top coat is used.
You know, this star-worthy item proves to us that you don't need to spend more than RM30 for a beauty buy. Good quality things do come in small price tags. ;)

So here's my rating :
Packaging : 5/5 stars.
Its a base and top coat! I don't mind simple packaging!
Sometimes packaging just don't do, ya' know. Its the quality of the product that matters.
Cos a lot of us women pay for the packaging more than for the quality of the product.
This packaging deserves 5 stars as it is convenient and easy to carry around. =)
Colour : -
Clear. Its a base and top coat!
Quality : 5/5 stars.
This product deserves awards!
It is THE best base and top coat I've ever used!
I love how smooth it applies. How shiny it is and how quickly it dries after application.
My nails look like its fresh out of the nail salon! ;)
I also love how lasting this base and top coat is.
Many bloggers love the Face Shop's base and top coat. I love that one too; but this one is the clear winner!
Price : 5/5 stars.
A clear winner as well. Selling for only RM11.90 at major pharmacies nationwide; this base and top coat is THE quality budget buy to buy! (LOL!)
So yes, it will always be the best base and top coat; EVER!

For International customers, do check and inquire regarding buying this product.

NOTD : Revlon Nails in Tropical Temptation

Sorry for the late updates.
Have been really busy with things.
Anyway, today will be a post about my fave nail polish. My FIRST Revlon nail polish.
It's called Tropical Temptation by Revlon nails.
It looks really pinkish-reddish in the bottle. But its really bright as well.
Perfect for the beach!
I really love how bright my nails look!
It looks prettier with longer nails; oh well.

Its perfect for every skintone. ;)
I love the colour; love it!
What I did not like about this nail polish though; is that the formula dries SLOW. Yes, very slow.
I waited like, 30 minutes for it to dry (after two coats) and after 30 minutes, when I thought it was fully dried, I was left dissapointed as when I touched it, it smudged a bit. C'mon, 30 minutes is LONG!
The other thing I did not like about this polish is that I have to apply 3-4 coats to get a really fine pretty-covered look. This is because 1 coat is like really opaque. You can actually see through the nail polish. The layer is really thin.
The price is kind of expensive. Its RM20 per bottle; judging by its quality; its expensive. Silkygirl is like half its price and it works wayyyyy better. -.-

Love :Taylor Swift's "Mine"

This song is stuck in my head. Reminds me of somebody I love and miss. <3

Love : Forever Living Aloe Lips

I have a love-hate relationship with this lip balm.
First..the person who sold me this balm told me its a natural lip balm.
I doubt it.
If its natural, it would not contain ingredients like allantoin. So yea, thankfully, the label does not state that it is 'natural'.
People, please read the label before use. There might be ingredients whereby they can cause reactions to your skin/lips/whatever..and the person selling you the item might boast the item as "100% natural. Suitable for every skin type" Whatever.
So anyway..this lip balm is not natural. But it contains a high quantity (or so I was told) of aloe vera.
Aloe vera is a good fruit. Or plant. It specialises in healing, soothing the skin, smoothing the skin, and so on..
The packaging is simple yet attractive. I like the words "Forever". =)
It contains Jojoba, which is also a good ingredient.

Alright, here are the ingredients (for your eyes only) :

Yes, a lot of snapshots for that. But its just so you know its not '100% natural' like what the salesperson told me.
The reason why I was not happy with this is because a friend of mine, who is allergic to lip products wanted a lip balm as she is going to Russia to study soon.
I bought her a tube of this lip balm as it was claimed to be '100% natural' and suitable for even sensitive lips.
The moment my friend tried on this balm, her lips got worst. It was dry-er. After consulting a doctor, we later found out that she was allergic to some of the chemicals in the lip balm. And since when are chemicals 'natural'? -.-

Anyway I am blessed to have normal skin, so I don't suffer from sensitivities.
Here is the inside of the tube :
Forever Living is a skincare company from the United States of America. Their main ingredient is aloe vera and their products are natural and safe.

Like any typical lip balm, this lip balm moisturises my lips well.
Here is my rating :
Packaging : 5/5 stars
I like simple and attractive packaging. Sometimes packaging plays a part..
I mean, we pay for the packaging too you see.
Quality : 3.5/5 stars
I like the scent. A little sweet and light. I don't know how aloe vera smell like, but yeah.
Like I said earlier, I was not happy with the '100% natural' and suitable for even sensitive lips claim. I don't know with the other Forever Living products, but this one definitely is not natural! Read the label, people!
The texture is like any good lip balm. Its smooth.
If you have sensitive lips, please go for a scent-free lip balm. Seriously.
This lip balm moisturises my lips well. As for staying power, like any lip product, you need to re-apply many times.
I like the fact that this balm can help heal your wounds, cuts and bruises. Somehow this is a miracle worker when it comes to that.
I also like the fact that this balm can conceal my split ends. I rub some on my split ends and wallah! Pretty hair.
Price : 4/5 stars
I like using LipIce lip balms. They cost RM8 each I think and they are good. I think this lip balm is slightly pricey for RM15 per tube. But since its multi-functional (it does not contain menthol, which is drying and not suitable for cuts and bruises) I think this is worth the buy!
Would I repurchase?

If you are interested in this product, email me at and give me your details. I know a seller who sells this lip balm and you guys can get them for RM15 each!
Shipping to Malaysia and Singapore only.
