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. -.-
