Review on Shizens Eye Charm Lash Extender

Hi beauties..Today I’m going to do a review on Shizens Eye Charm Lash Extender. I bought this last year when I was in KL. I can’t really remember the price but I think should be around RM 128. I bet most of you saw this product before; anyway I’m just going to do as simple review on it.
How this product works:
1) Help to extend your lashes naturally and soft.

2) Enriches with Pro-Vitamin B which prompt growth of lashes

This is the before and after picture shown on Shizens website which appear to be really attracting and no doubt I was attracted to this as well…and bought myself one…^^

To tell the truth, I seldom use this and only used it on special occasion or attending wedding dinners as I’m lazy to apply so many layers of mascara (=.=)

Method of using it:1) First curl your lashes with eyelash curler.

2) Next apply mascara on your lashes (any brand will do). Shizens actually come out with their own mascara for this product. But I didn’t buy it..Out of budget...T.T So I used my own.

3) Next apply Shizens Eye Charm on your lashes. Slightly touch your lashes with the wand to stick the fibers on your lashes. (Be careful when you apply this as the fibers tends to easily drop on your cheeks). So the best way to apply it is instead of looking straight when you apply it, you tilt your head slightly down (looking at the floor). Use a small mirror to assist you when you applying it.

4) Then apply your mascara again. You can repeat step 3 again if you want your lashes to be longer and thicker. For me.. I only apply it once.

Below is the result before apply Shizenz Eye charm and after applying it.

Overall..i would rate this product 3 star out of 5....You need to try several times before you get the right amount or else your lashes will appear chunky (lashed grouped together) like cockroaches legs... It just likes trial and error to get the right amount…:)

* Please take note that all the products review I’ve done are purely my own opinion and sharing, without receiving any payment.

Review on Alfapart Milano Illuminating Essential Oil Hair Ampoule

Hi everyone ^.^ Today I’m going to do a review on Alfaparf Milano Illuminating Essential Oil. I bought this box months ago for RM 80 and used a couple of times. This is my third time using it. The hair salon introduces me this product when I told them I was looking for hair ampoule for dry and dull hair.

Now..What does this product help to treat my hair? The ultimate illuminating Essential Oil come with an exclusive blending of unique shine of Semi di Lino and an instant hair repairt Microcystalline Treament. It helps to adds shine and luminosity to dull and dry hair. It contains high Linseed oil Complex (Omega-3, Omega-6 Fatty Acids, and Vitamins) which helps to repair capillary fibers and seals the hair cuticle making the hair softer, smoother and doesn’t weight the hair down.

As you can see from the picture above, before using you need to break off the neck of the bottle. Please be careful when you removing it as the bottle are made of glass. I used it on my towel-dried hair and leave it for around 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. I used one bottle for entire hair. One small bottle is 13ml. Although the description stating illuminating oil, but it not oily at all. It more watery and very light.

Before using, my hair is very dry.Well as for the result; it helps to soften my hair and my hair look healthier. But it doesn’t really add shine to my hair. Maybe I need to use it more frequently to see better as result as I remember my last time using it was two months ago..O.O Overall rating, I would give 3 stars out of 5.

Review on Colourvue Contact Lens

Hi everyone..Been slightly slow on my blog updates recently as I’m having training for one whole weeks and my MBA course started to get heavy.

Well today I’m going to review on the Colourvue Contact Lens Big Eyes Evening Grey. I’m not sure whether you heard about this brand before…So I’m going to do a short introduction on this brand. Colourvue Lenses are produce by a global contact lens company, Maxvue Vision. All their products are manufactured under strict quality controlled environment with ISO9001, GMP and European CE approved. There are different types of contact lenses brand under Maxvue Vision which is Colourvue, Phantesee and Clear Lenses.

Here’s some of the examples under ColourVue Big Eyes

I bought Evening Gray sometimes ago. I bought this pair for RM 90 which I think is quite affordable. Here’s the picture of me with and without the lens. :) Look how big is the different...Right side look like really tired eyes..Left side, the eyes look big and bright..:)

I have tried a lot of other color contact lens before but never found one as comfortable as this one. My eyes easily dry out. With this contact lens, I can wear up to 6 hours without feeling uncomfortable. Sometimes I even forget I’m actually wearing the contact lens. Colourvue Contact Lenses have high water content 45% and it can last for 3 months with proper care. Most people neglect the importance of proper care cleaning of contact lens and this lead to eyes infection. Here’s the proper guidelines lens care provided by Maxvue vision inside their website.

Overall, I’m quite satisfied with this contact lens. Would give 4 ❤❤❤❤ out of 5. For comparison, I've done a review on Geo Colour Contact Lens as well.

Eyelash Perm

Has anyone heard about Eyelash Perm? It caught my interest as I was browsing thru the deals on the website… I was wandering how they do it…Been doing some Google search and forum searching and here’s what I found.

The Eyelash perm trend first started around 2005 from the idea of hair curling. Most of tools they used for eyelash perm are using Eyelash Perm Rods or Eyelash Perm Clips for the curling (Small, Medium and Large Size) and Perm lotion to keep it permanent for 3 months. Here’s some of the example of eyelash perm method:

Below is some of the information I found from the forum (MalaysianBabes.net and Lowyat.net Forum):

1) You don’t have to apply mascara, false eyelashes every time or using eyelash curler.

2) It can last till 3 months and making your lash look natural curl up.

1. Eyelashes tend to drop easily. Not good for someone which have less eyelashes.

2. A lot of side effects such as eyes swollen, painful after perming.

3. Not suitable for those having short eyelashes.

After watching some of the videos in Youtube regarding eyelash perm, the first thing I came into my mind is one part of the scene in Final Destination 5 where the girl was doing laser eyes...LOL...You can say I’m timid…but to me...it seems dangerous..Especially eyes are one of the most important parts in our life. The information above is just a simple sharing of what I find and learn. Anyway, I think I’ll past this and stick to mascara.:)How about you? Please vote below..Thank you..

Would you Go for Eyelash Perm ?

Dye Your Hair

Hi to all the beauties out there...Going thru the news this morning and found out another case of girl die from allergic to hair dye. If not mistaken, this is the second case since the last month. Last month, there’s a report of a woman nearly die from allergic reaction after dying her hair. The product that she uses was also mention inside the newspaper in Guang Ming Newspaper. I didn’t manage to scan the newspaper but here’s the links which I found inside the website which also report the same case.

Nowadays, we have a lot of different hair dye product in the market and more and more people choose to dye the hair themselves as the product selling in the store are quite cheap compare to going to Salon. Price range can be from RM 15 to RM 35 depending on the brand you buy in the store.

Although the price is cheap, there are still a few things that we shouldn’t miss out when we choose the product. There are always a pre-cautious statement stated inside the leaflet which they put together with the product, but how many of us really go thru the leaflet?

Below are some of the things that we shouldn’t miss out when using or choosing the hair dye product.

1. Just yesterday, the Star Newspaper published out all hair dyes product that contains o-Aminophenols has been banned from the market. The Scientific Committee in Consumer Safety in European Union couldn’t find a data which support o-aminophenols safety for usage and due to its potential of causing skin irritation. Here’s website which listed the product that contain this chemical.Bureau's Website

2. Always perform Allergy Test on your hand before dyeing it to your hair. This is the part which most of us skip out.

3. Always read the safety instruction provided by the product before using.

4. Do not leave the hair dye longer time than mention inside the leaflet.

Hope the informations above help us aware of the things that we need to be cautious when doing home hair dye.

Face Lift Mask Review

Hi all...Today I’m going to review on the Kiss Japan Electric Ore Peptide Firming Duo Lifting Mask which I bought a couple of months ago..This mask is well known in Taiwan for lifting and firming. I just manage to try it out last week. This mask is suitable for all skin types.

What’s the function of this Mask?
1) With the “turning back time lifting”, it helps to firm and lift up your skin to create more 3D look.

2) Prevent your skin from aging and moisture your skin.

The packaging stated

Whitening ★★★★★
Moisturizing ★★★★
Tightening ★★★★★
Absorption ★★★★★
Fitting ★★★★★

Method of using:

Pros:1. The thing I like about this mask is it’s not so watery.
2. Skin appears smooth and pore tightens after applying.
3. Have ear-hook wrap for face and neck.
4. For the pricing of the mask, it’s not too expensive.

Cons:1. For me, the mask size is a bit small for me as I can’t hook the mask to my ear. My face is too big T.T. I think most of the people should be able to hook it to the ears.

2. After applying for 15 minutes and wash it off, I didn’t really see any lifting effect as mention by the mask. Maybe it’s because I use it for one time only. Not sure it will create a lifting effect if I continue using the mask for one month.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Weight Loss Tips

How many of you are concern about your own body weight? Well...i do…especially when it’s nearer to my wedding day… Nowadays, more and more slimming center is advertising on tv, radio and newspaper on how their centre can help to reduce weight. But most of us can’t afford to pay for the treatment as it’s really expensive.
So we started to search for other alternative to reduce our weight such as skipping our meal, applying slimming product, exercising more and etc..Some methods are good for our body and some are not. Skipping meal is definitely not a good idea in reducing weight and it will bring opposite result.

Below is one small exercise which I usually do before sleeping. For me, it really helps to reduce my weight especially at the thigh area. I draw this myself and please bear with the ugly drawing..T.T

1) The first step you can do is put both your hand on the wall to support yourself. Lift your right leg slightly to the back above the ground. Without touching the ground, lift up and down your right leg for 20 times. Switch side after doing 20 times. (The step helps to lift your buttock)

2) Next, put one side of your hand on the wall to support yourself, and lift one side of your leg up and down. Make sure you are standing straight on the other leg. Repeat the step for around 20 times for left leg. You can increase it when you are use to it. (Helps to reduce and tighten your thigh)

3) The next step is seat on the floor with your hand and leg pointing to the front. Move to the front 10 times by using your buttock to move. While moving, your leg will slide side by side..But make sure it’s close. Try to make sure your back is straight when doing this. Move back using the same step with your buttock 10 times. (If you feel uncomfortable doing this, don’t push yourself. You can skip this step)

Here’s one of the healthy drink that can be use in slimming down:

1. 5 strawberry (rich sources of phenoic antioxidants that aid in weight loss)
2. 1 Orange
3. Half cup of low fat milk
4. 1 spoon of honey
Blend together and add in a few pieces of ice cube if you like it cold.

I manage slim down from 50 kg to 48 kg and maintaining it as of now. Hope this information helps you gals as well.

Wedding Photography in Taiwan

Hello ladies..:) Today i'm going to share some of the tips and my wedding photography in Taiwan. Hope the information helps you all in choosing the right Wedding shop for your wedding photo ♥♥

I went to Taiwan this year during April for a weeks and the main purpose is actually for my wedding photography. As we did some research which date to go, April seems to be the best time to go Taiwan as less raining and the weather is just right. Not too hot or too cold. I bought this package from a wedding shop in Taiwan, Romantic Life during the wedding fair in Queensbay, Penang. To be honest, although it’s very expensive, I enjoy the every moment during the photo shooting.

Romantic Life is located at Taipei Chung San Road. You can see a lot of wedding shop around this area. The taxi driver told us that this street is known as Wedding Street. It took us around 15 minutes to 20 minutes to walk there from the place we’re staying. There’s one hostel which I highly recommend if you went there for photo shooting, STAR Hostel (2F., No. 132, Sec. 1 Zhongshan N. Rd.). The hostel is very neat and clean. I enjoy staying there as the price is reasonable. (This is simply a sharing and experience from me, not a request of advertisement from any places I mention above.)

STAR Hostel

Anyway, let get back to the main topic here...The whole photo shooting needed one day only. But before the photo shooting day, we need to go there two day ahead to select and try out the gowns, determine places to go for shooting and which MUA (makeup artist) you want. As for my husband, his tuxedo size was measured in other shop which is just a few streets away from Romantic Life. I’ve to admit that, guy tuxedo is much more expensive than our gown and we are just renting it...T.T.

For the photo shooting places, my husband and I choose to go to Yangmingshan as we like natural more and we’re on tight budget. During my trip to Taijung, we went to a place call The Small Swiss Garden which is very near to Qingjing Farm. It’s a very nice place with lots of flowers. If we’re not on tight budget, I would choose to add that place to my photo destination. As for the makeup and hairstyle, I didn’t specifically tell the MUA which types of makeup I want as I believe they know which makeup and hairstyles are more suitable for us. After the MUA finish setting the hairstyle and makeup, they will take a picture of your makeup and hairstyle and ask you whether you’re satisfied or not with the makeup and hairstyle. If yes, then they will start the photographing session. Every change of styles, they will do the same to ensure you are satisfied with the makeup. The overall photo session are very enjoying. 

I’ve heard a lot of questions regarding what to bring during the photo shooting. Well, here’ some of the things you need to prepare upfront or bring over to Taiwan for the photoshooting

1. For gal, remember to bring nude bra...this is really important..i didn’t know about it when I went there to choose my gown. In the end, I have to spend one night to shop around to look for the nude bra.

2. Buy a white or silver high heel as it’s easy to match with any colours of the gown. For guy, remember to bring one black or one white shoe. As during tuxedo selection, you will be given one shoe only either black or white.
3. Bring your own ampoules and make sure it’s a branded one...as during my makeup session, I bring those unbranded ampoules and the MUA told me, it won’t last long on my makeup. In the end, I buy their ampoules.

4. Remember to bring another pair of normal shoe with you during the photo shooting as you don’t’ want to keep wearing the high heel when you walking down the glass or rocky road.

Hope the information above help you all when preparing for the wedding photoshooting :)

Till Then

Review: Kao Biore Makeup Remover

First of all, thank you Biore for giving us the chance to try out the Biore Makeup Remover for Eye & Lip. Today, I’m going do a review on it and at the same time making a comparison between this Liquid Biore Makeup Remover and Biore Makeup Remover Wipes.

The product that I use to review the effectiveness of the Biore Makeup Remover
Liquid and Makeup Remover Wipes:

  • Bourjois Paris Effect Smoky Eyeliner

  • Kiss Me Heroine Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner

  • Kate Super Sharp Liner

  • Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing

  • 1) Biore Makeup Remover for Eye & Lip

    Steps and Result :
    1) Shake first before using.

    2) Apply onto cotton pad and place at your eyes or lips. Here’s the result of first wipe using the cotton pad on my hand.

    Comment: The first wipe on the mascara and eyeliners, it didn’t really wipe off all the fiber from the mascara and still left a bit of liners mark on my hand. I used two cotton pads for these review. When I did another wipe softly, it removes the mascara and liner thoroughly. After wiping, my hand didn’t show any redness or feeling oily. For eyes and lips, I think this is important that any makeup remover that we use must not cause any redness. This product is gentle for my skin.

    2. Biore Makeup Remover Wipes

    Steps and Result:
    I take one pieces of the cotton wipes and place it around my hand which I draw with mascara and eye liners. Left it for a few second before wiping off. Here’s the result for the first wipe and third wipes.

    Comment: As you can see, from the first wipe, it still left quite a lot of the residue from the eye liners and mascara. After second and third wipe, it manages to clean thoroughly.

    For me, both work well. For Biore Makeup Remover wipes, I will usually use it when I want to do a quick makeup remove. As for the Biore Liquid Makeup Remover, it really helps to clean off the eye and lip makeup and you won’t feel any dryness or redness on your skin.
    Hope this helps :D .

    Review : Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil

    Its time to review on the Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil. I got this sample last month on one of the Shu uemura sampling event. I choose the Fresh pore clarifying gentle cleansing oil to try out because I have oily combination skin. Been trying it out for one weeks..I have to say I like the product so much. I use it as night cleanser and makeup remover. It does it work well by deep cleansing my pores and clearly remove my makeup without drying my face. Some people might still feel it’s oily even though we rise off and will perform another cleansing using normal cleanser. For me, I didn’t perform double cleanse as I think it’s sufficient enough to clean out the dirt on my face and after rising off, my face feel smooth and refreshing due to its sakuna extract scent…I feel that it has the calming element inside it as its really calm me down and help me to refresh myself after a long hectic days.

    Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil helps to:
    1) Wash away enlarge pores concern by minimizing the pores

    2) Effectively remove makeup and impurities

    3) Eliminate excessive sebum and smoothen the skin surface.

    It comes with two sizes: 150 ml (RM99) and 459ml (RM260)

    Review: Kao Liese Juicy Shower Moisturizing Hair Mist

    Today I’m going to review on the Kao Liese Juicy Shower Moisturizing hair mist. I got this during the Liese Pop Bubble competition. Thank you Liese :D

    Wander what is the function of this product? Liese Juicy Shower mist helps to give our hair a quick boost of moisture on our dry, rough and damaged hair. It helps to smoothen the hair frizz. With its Hair Beautiful technology (HBT), the hair becomes smoother and softer after using.

    One thing I like about this product is the scent. It’s formulated with raspberry extract which is quite refreshing.. As raspberry is rich with vitamins and antioxidants, it is mostly use in skin care and health care. Due to its unique formulated with raspberry extract, this product instantly help to restore our hair moisture.

    Here’s the before and after using the Liese Juicy Shower. Before using, my hair is dry and frizzy. After spraying the Liese Juicy Shower Moisturizing mist, I let my hair to dry naturally without using hair dryer. The hair become less frizzy and it help to add shine to my hair.
