Smashbox kits

I blogged about the Sexy Kitty Look for Halloween and little did I know Smashbox Cosmetic actually came up with a make-up set to create the look.  While I was at Sephora's website, I also discover that Smashbox also has make-up set to create Burlesque look (which I tried before and failed!).

Visit Sephora website for the whole complete collection.  I think Smashbox is available in KL, but I'm not sure where.

With the price like that, I think it's worth the purchase!

USD10.00 at Sephora

Halloween make-up

This year's Halloween, I decided to go with the Kitty Cat Look.  Just because I couldn't find anything easier to do.  Doing makeup for cat look is so much fun and so easy!

I watched a few youtube videos and I decided to go with this and made a little change to the eye area just for fun!

Put on a cat's ear piece, a tail and a black bow and you're ready to walk the room kitty style!

Is it just me or any of you also a fan of burlesque? The dance, the make-up, the costume? and now the nail colors too! OPI has come up with their new color collection named Burlesque in conjunction with the movie of the same name which will be released in the cinema (if the government allows this) next month.

I'm gonna do my nails next week Wednesday and I am so gonna use this color!

Tell me if you're a fan too!

Seaweed Treatments

I have super oily skin - something that I've been trying to treat for a looong time.  And Facial Blotter is with me 24/7 (so all that facial blotters in the goodies bag will be put to good use!)

I am in the middle of using Shu Uemura's PuRenovate range when Nic showed me the Seaweed range from Body Shop that does the same job, BUT at much cheaper price.  So I purchased a traveler's set, because I want to see if it works on my skin... and if it does, I will buy the whole range in full size.

I've been using it for two days, so far I see my skin has become less oily, but still oily.  I am going to give it two weeks or at least until the product finish before I decide if I want to stick with it.

RM79.00 set includes
Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser, Clarifying Toner,
Mattifying Day Cream and Clarifying Night Treatment.

Below is the write-up on this product taken from Body Shop US site;


Our innovative Seaweed range delivers essential moisture to where your skin is dry and controls shine when and where you need it. Whether your skin is naturally prone to shine or reacts to the weather, our wild-harvested seaweed is a complete and balanced source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, so your skin is purified and conditioned.

The range is oil-free, alcohol-free and clinically proven to be non-comodogenic. The leave-on products use our special oil-balancing technology that controls existing sebum on the skin for an instantly mattified complexion, while the active ingredients are retained on the skin to be released as oil is produced throughout the day. Your skin appears clarified, hydrated and shine-free all day.

Dream Unlimited

Last night, I was invited to the launch of Body Shop new fragrance named Dream Unlimited (tm) and also the opening of its flagship store at Fahrenheit88 (formerly KL plaza).

Like any other Body Shop fragrance, this one too has a strong note to it, which I love by the way and this one I thought was both floral & fresh at the same time.  According to Body Shop, "this exhilarating fragrance features notes of citrus, green chilli, white flowers and cedarwood. It has been created exclusively for The Body Shop by two of the world’s leading perfumers."

I received a bottle of its bath gel in our goodies bag last night, and I shall use it every night!

Make your way to Body Shop to smell for yourself!

Eau de Parfum
Body Wash

Body Lotion

Sorry, I forgot to get the price last night, it was too crowded at the store... But knowing Body Shop, the products are affordable.

New Looks from Chanel

These are the new looks from Chanel and I'm loving them!!

Can't wait to see this in person when they hit the local counters soon.

Now tell me which one do you like the most?  I actually like the military inspired nail polish.. I may just get one and don it all throughout the remaining of the year! No more pinky nails!

Diva of Geneva!

Just got back for Nail Extreme, the new colors from OPI Swiss Collection are in!

I was so excited, because I just saw it in the September issue of InStyle USA.. You can always count on Alice (of Nail Extreme) to bring in OPI latest color!

Let me show off my new nail colors from today's manicure and pedicure session.  By the way, I also went for Chocolate Spa - scrub, mask and lotion were all chocolate scented, smell so yummy!  And it has cooling effect too!

Mani:  The Color To Watch

Pedi: Diva of Geneva

Cost: Additional RM20 for the Chocolate Spa for my feet.  My manicure and pedicure is part of a package I signed up at RM350 for six times normal mani & pedi.

Cookie Care

Would you believe me that there are also products to care for your "cookie"? Just like men's aftershave etc. for their shaved parts?

I thought just ordinary feminine wash would do the job, but apparently there are hundreds if not thousands of these products in the market.  I thought it would just be product gimmick at first but one that is a sucker for sweet talk, I purchased a set of three "cookie care".  These products are to be used by people who normally wax..

Ok.. I know you'd probably be wondering what are these cute pinkish stuffs... Let me explain..

Smooth Operator

After wax or shave, you'd need this to exfoliate the sensitive skin area.  It's actually a scrub.  Ok this is what's written on the bottle:

" A gentle, PH balanced scrub, quickly polishes dry areas, removes dead cells and clears congested pores.  Helps releases ingrown hairs, for smoother softer looking skin "

Goodbye Forever!

This spray on is to help minimize the appearance of ingrown hair... This one can be used on the face too.. and I've been using it for all over right after shaving or waxing.. Nice smell too!

RM100 for 125ml.

Strawberry Champagne Cocktail

It's not just a moisturizer, it's a seductive moisturizer for all the right places!    It's strawberry scented is so yummy!

Too bad that Smooth Operator and Strawberry Cocktails have been discontinued and will be replaced by new improved formula.  I have put my order on them and will blog about it when I get to try them soon.

I will definitely add these to my daily grooming routine.  Because believe it or not, it does make some difference and improvement.  Hubby even commented on it one day :D  Of course you just need to take my words for it.. I can't be showing you picture proof!!

I love classic 60's pin-up look, it's very glamorous, very burlesque, very Dita Von Teese!

I once blogged about wanting to try the look.

This is how I looked after trying out a youtube tutorial by the beautiful Ms Jessica Harlow.

Did I miss something? Or I just don't have what it takes to look like a sultry 60's pin-up girl/burlesque dancer? LOL!

Maybe because I didn't do the wings? Or I didn't draw beauty mark? Or is it because I DO NOT have almost white porcelain skin?

Anyway, this look is very OK for day time even with the red lipstick..  What do you think?

P/S: I'm too lazy to type all the products I used to achieve this look... sorry!

Pure Renovate your skin!

Remember my post about the Pore Expert Skincare by Lancome?

I may have found a more affordable skincare range for my oily face.  I've been using whitening range, but since I have not been golfing for a long time, I figure it's time I tackle my super oily skin.

I was at the Shu Uemura outlet the other day to collect my gift redemption as Shu Fanatic member. I asked for the Purenovate samples to see if it really is as it claimed to be.  Guess what?! Even though the sample only lasted me a couple of days, I could see the difference in my skin condition.  I don't get oily as quickly as I used to.

So after my current whitening range is finished, I'll be switching to this one.  At RM400 ++ for the whole set, it's half the price of my current skincare set.

It claims to be a total oil-control solution for blemish free skin, tightens pores and regulates sebum production for perfectly matified skin.

Meanwhile, if you are interested to get a sample, simply request here.  Play the game to win a hamper.

Taking a Chance!

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, that is!

Click here to see the video presentation on the campaign.

I am an avid Chanel fragrance fan... I have almost all the latest collection.. The classic ones I leave for the Datins & Puan Sris.. For me, I like the smell of fresh & modern luxury.  Besides, the classic No. 5 will only reminds me of my childhood.. Funny, isn't it?  I will tell you more about my Chanel fragrance and the stories behind them. In the meantime, in case you didn't know it yet.. Chance Eau Tendre is their latest fragrance and I have my hands on a bottle... And I must say, I will not stop at a bottle.. It smells so divine!

Pore Expert

I was at the Lancome counter to re-stock my skin care when the Beauty Consultant remarked how oily my T-zone was... A skin condition that I've known and wanted to correct for the longest time.. 

Having oily skin is in my gene.  No matter how matifying the make-up products are claimed to be,  can't seem to achieve the "matte" look..  Well, maybe only for half an hour.. And another thing about having oily skin is, makeup doesn't seem to last long on the face and eye makeup will create crease and it's not a nice sight...

So, I was introduced to this PORE EXPERT 3D-COLLAGEN CX by Lancome.  Price tag: somewhere around  170.00 rm more or less.  

I've been using it for a few weeks now, only during the day when I go out and have makeup on.. I used it as I'd use a makeup base. After moisturizer and before sunblock.  So far, it has given me better surface for make up and I'm loving it..  And my oily skin is still oily but make up stays longer!

I saw this on the website and would like to try it..  Looks interesting, isn't it?  I'll blog about it when I got it in my hands!

Rouge Coco

I have been waiting for the launch of this product since last year... So when the girl at the Chanel counter told me of the launch date, I marked my calendar.. I was THAT excited!

I signed up for Chanel's cosmetic newsletter in the hope that I'd get latest news on their latest fragrance.  I am a BIG fan of Chanel fragrance!

Anyway, I bought a tube of the latest Chanel lipstick Rouge Coco in Legende, the same color worn by Vanessa Paradis in the TV ad.  I am sure you have watched the TV ad by now.  In case you haven't, this is the youtube link.

Here's the write-up on that tube of pure classic:

ROUGE COCO dresses the lips in an easy and self-evident daily beauty step.
Thanks to its soft, creamy texture and its luxurious, timeless packaging, it is the confidante of each moment of a woman’s life, finding its natural place in the handbags of women today.

The new ROUGE COCO formula combines hydration and comfort.
Created by CHANEL, the Hydratender complex delivers 8-hour hydration with a single application.
The choice of pigments with an utmost quality optimizes the formula’s comfort.
ROUGE COCO offers a satiny and luminous makeup result.

Elegant and luminous, the 30 shades of the range are easy to wear and can be used in your own individual way, according to your mood. 
From legendary sites to favorite pieces of jewelry, from passions to symbols, their names recount the life story of Gabrielle Chanel.

A classic has never been expressed this freely

At just below RM100 a tube, I'd say it's worth it.. you can feel the luxury on your lips!

Nails & colors

How often do you go to nail salon?

If time is on my side, I'll try and visit them every 3 weeks, just for basic manicure & pedicure.. I don't really fancy nail arts.. I mean, how do you eat and do house chores with nails that has got 3D stuffs and ring dangling from it? Besides, they don't really look professional, right?

Anyway, I've been going to this place in USJ Taipan called Nail Extreme since 2007.. The only place I'm comfortable with who carries OPI, so I always trust that they have the latest color collection.

My current rage is The Alice in Wonderland Collection. I've used Mad as a Hatter (shiny purplish glitterish) and Thanks so Muchness! (Very red almost berry color).. They have a miniature collection that I'm thinking of getting.. Just because they're cute!

Another one that I really like is the Suede collection.. Too bad, this nail colors don't last that long, because they don't apply Top Coat, to get the "suede effect".

I swear on OPI nail color.. I think they are the best.. The names are cute too! Believe it or not, the only time I don't have nail color on my toes was 7 days in December last year because of the scheduled surgery.. Apart from that, my toenails are colored every single day since 2007.

Sexy Kitty!

The last post entry on this blog was about me getting Brazilian for the first time and that was four waxes ago.. hehe.. I can now consider myself an expert at the pain.. hehe

But, what I didn't tell you was I have discovered (or rather they discovered me-I got a text message from them), another Full Service Wax Salon in Bangsar Shopping Center namedHoneyPot Wax Boutique. After I tried their service a week before St. Valentine's Day, I have decided that this will be my waxing salon from now on.. Simply because:

a) their prices are much cheaper;
b) their salon looks and feels cleaner than the Strip, and it's all pink!;
c) they provide better service and they don't push you to get the packages.
d) they call their therapists "Sexy Kitty" rather than, well, therapist..
This is their award :)

And I am so happy with this that I am thinking of venturing into a franchise of this business in KK.. Hmm... Any thought? Here's the Tongue in Chic review on HoneyPot.. Click it for more pictures.
