Skin Food Choco Melt Lip Gloss

Today, I would like to show you the Skin Food Choco Melt Lip Tube that I use almost daily. I leave one in my handbag.

Why I like it:

It looks good on its own. It keeps my lips moist in the air-cond office.
I do not need to apply lipstick if I apply the pink shade.
Note: The brown shade is more neutral and can be applied before or after lipstick application. For those who like it nude, you will prefer the brown shade.

Left - Brown                              Right - Pink

Rating for Scent:4/5 (I like the chocolate flavour)
Rating for Product Texture: 3/5 (a bit on the sticky side)
Rating for Product Packaging: 4/5
Rating for Product Lasting Effect: 3/5
Price: RM26 for each tube
Will I repurchase: Yes (because I like the flavour and color)

What lip gloss are you using now? Any favourite?

Thanks for sharing

Skin Food Extra Virgin Olive Essence

Hi everyone

I hope you are doing fine. Today, I will be reviewing Skin Food Extra Virgin Olive Essence.
This is a hair care product.

I have been using this product regularly (at least 2 times a week) and find that it is quite effective in detangling my hair and provide luster. I love this product because it is not oily and it uses extra virgin olive oil.

Product Description:
Treatment serum with well-refined extra virgin olive oil to control curls and unkemptness and to provide luster to hair.

How to  Use:
Shampoo hair and towel dry, pump a small amount into your palms, rub your hands and apply on your hair. I apply on my hair ends only. One to 2 pumps is sufficient for me.

Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Oleo Europaea (Oilive) Fruit Oil, Parfum.

Rating for Scent:3.5/5
Rating for Product Texture:4/5
Rating for Product Packaging: 4/5
Rating for Product Effectiveness: 3.5/5
Price: RM36.90 for 60ml
Will I repurchase: Yes

What brand of hair product do you use? Any favourite brand? Thanks for sharing.

Eye Makeup Tutorial (Brown)

Hi everyone, 

Today I am going to show u a tutorial on how to apply brown eyeshadow.
I learnt this technique during a workshop organized by Lancome in 2009.

For this look, you will need:

1. 3 shades of eye shadow (dark brown, light brown and skin color) - I am using Silky Girl Mocha Latte no 16 and Elianto e/s)

2. Kohl Pencil (I am using Stage Kohl Pencil in # 01 Karma Kohl)

3. Eye shadow brush (from Estee Lauder) + a tool that can smudge the kohl pencil color (see step 2 pic below)

4. Black Liquid eyeliner  (In 2 It)

5. Mascara (Clinique lash power mascara in 01 Black Onyx)

Step: 1 - use the Kohl pencil and color your eyelid area, open your eyes to see the areas that you wish to cover, for a more dramatic look, color it higher. 
Pls note that kohl pencil and your normal eye liner pencil is not the same, kohl pencil is easier to blend.


 Step 2 : smudge the kohl color with a tool shown below.
Step 3: apply dark brown eye shadow over the kohl pencil area and blend

Step 4: apply light brown eye shadow above the dark brown e/s and blend
Step 5: apply the skin color e/s below the brow bone and blend
Step 6: Apply eye liner and mascara



 So, how do u like this eyeshadow application technique?
