My all-time fave mascara!
Has its cons though.
Read on to read about it! ;)

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.

August Must-Haves!

So yes, I know this month is my fave month..September!
But I just gotta shout out my August must-haves!
A lot of them are drugstore brands and cheap; so you get quality and you save money as well!

They are :
- Elianto Nail Color in 34 Light Coral
(amazing amazing quality! RM5 per bottle. You must not miss this!)
- Eyeko Indigo Polish
(I love this so much, its brought everywhere by me!)
- The Face Shop Nail Color in PK105
(Peeps, bright HOT pink is the must-have this season! Go on, express yourself!)
- Silkygirl 2-in-1 Protective Base and Top Coat
(This is the MUST-BUY item! The base and top coat is of good quality and my nails are prepped and protected! Not only that, the shine it gives is wonderful! Super glossy!)
- Sunsilk Co-Creations for Straight Hair protecting leave on (co-created by Teddy Charles)
(I love this hair leave on conditioner! Smells well! I have straight to wavy this leave on conditioner not only tames my frizzes, but also smoothes and softens my hair! You can get this at all pharmacies or drugstores at RM3.20 each!)
- Silkygirl Lash Prism Waterproof Mascara in 02 Dark Brown
(Beauties on a budget, this mascara is THE mascara to buy if you can't afford to spend on Maybelline. They are wonderful alternatives and they lengthen and curl your lashes perfectly!)
- ELF Nail Polish Remover pads
(Although you need two wipes to thoroughly remove all the nail polish from the nails of both hands, I find this item a must-have for the to-go girl, like me!)
- Forever Living Aloe Lips
(RM15 per tube..this lip balm smells nice and applies well. Its multi-purpose for me as this lip balm can help you cure cuts and bruises, as well as protecting dry areas from ..drying?)

I will be updating on my September must-haves!
Thinking of getting a BB Cream..any recommendations?

Love : Eyeko Indigo Polish for Sultry Nails

Before I start rambling, I should perhaps show you a cute photo I just took with my car and with a precious sticker. ;D
That's right, I'm a full-time Eyeko fan. =)
Indigo Polish with the cool Eyeko sticker!

Alright, now..
Before I start gushing on how much I love this polish, I apologise if you have to suffer from neck pains as you will have to tilt your head sideways from looking at certain photos.
Yes, they are a pain in the a$$!
The reason?
Because they aren't able to rotate. If I rotate, the quality of the picture will rotate as well. As in, the quality will become worse. And who likes bad quality? =/ Not me..

So, here is the queen of the day!
My new love : the Eyeko Indigo polish!
I just made my purchases with Eyeko few days ago and I was so glad they gave me another Indigo! Since the polish expires after six months of opening (short shelf-life, if you ask me), I mind as well get a back up. And I'm glad the people at Eyeko can read my mind! =P

I am a big fan of Eyeko and I love the nail polishes especially. The colours are gorgeous! ;D
I personally like to stand out from the crowd, but being an Eyeko ambassador, I feel the urge in sharing with you guys the awesomeness of this polish!

My camera may rock, but it failed max in capturing the beauty of this polish.
Trust me, this polish is my absolute fave! I've been getting compliments since wearing it few days ago!
Other nail polishes, glare in envy; cos this polish is gonna knock you off! =D

In case you are curious, the Eyeko Indigo polish is a blue-purple polish with lots of shimmers. The shimmers are absolutely amazing and very very very pretty. They somewhat remind me of OPI's Yoga-ta Get This Blue, or maybe, prettier!
I officially can't live without this polish!
With flash. =)
Sorry if the pictures are pretty messy. -.-

So here's my rating :
Packaging : 5/5 stars
Slim and small. Yet pretty. This is a pretty typical packaging..but what stands out are the labels. The labels are really cute and classy and chic. Yes. They are gorgeous.
Quality : 4/5 stars
The reason why I rated it a four out of five, was because I didn't really like the consistency and texture of this nail polish. I hope they improved the formula. Sometimes, I find it hard to apply the polish as it is kind of thick sometimes, which is bad. The pictures above are four coats of this nail polish. One or two coats ain't enough.
I know I might be a little bias by giving it a four, not a three. Let me tell you why.
One of the reasons why I gave this a four is because although the formula wasn't really a satisfaction kind of thing, the staying power is amazing! I'm having this polish on for a week without topcoat and it is still as it is! A little chip here and there, but yeah..its amazing!
The brush is wonderful too! It applies polish to my nails smoothly. ;D
I'm not really happy with the six months expiry date though..but I assume some of the ingredients are natural? Lol!
I like this polish so much, its in my make up bag! (a first as I don't put polishes in my make up bag..I place them in a drawer catered for polishes.)
Colour : 5/5 stars
Gorgeous! Full stop.
Price : 3/5 stars
The price is about the same with Revlon's nail polishes. Its about £3.50? (RM17.50)
I'm not the type who spends alot on nail polishes. I usually buy Elianto polishes cos they are great too (RM5 each)..but Eyeko polishes are awesome aplenty so its worth the buy!

Would I repurchase?
Already did!
