Beauty Haul | November

Saturday, 30 November 2013

When I see other bloggers hauls, I noticed that most of them post their monthly haul at the beginning of the month. But for me, like today, I'll be posting on stuffs that I bought throughout this month of November, so when I decided to do reviews on them, it means I have been using them for a quite period period of time, unless it's stated it is a first impression post. 

Now let's get right into it!


I've been loving the products that I have from Skinfood so I went to the store again to get some more products and trial kits which are perfect just to try out some stuffs. I got the Black Sugar kit that contain Black Sugar Perfect First Serum Miniature with Cotton pads and Black Sugar Scrub Foam and the Facial Care Kit that contains Carrot Cleansing Foam (50ml), Facial Water Vita-C (Mist) 50ml, head band, and cotton pads. I also got the Black Sugar Wash-Off Mask as I've been hearing great things about it being a holy grail product among beauty bloggers.

Beauty Award: The Liebster Award

Thursday, 28 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! Happy Thursday! It's almost the end of the week so I guess everyone's are excited to shop this weekend, right? Watch out for interesting promotions and shop wisely! :D

Yeah, I guess after reading the above title, it's no surprise right? Thanks to my dearest fellow beauty blogger, a friend, Joyce or her Google+ account name +Shen Ee , she nominated me the Liebster Award. Thanks so much for this, darls! I guess it's really nice to have something like this as a platform to get to know other beauty bloggers more and even discovered new ones! 

Girls, do check out Joyce's beauty blog IntoFace and have fun while you're at it. I always enjoy reading reviews and picking up simple tips to follow from her. Plus, her blog just got re-vamped and I'm totally in love with the new layout. :D


Simple rules!
The Liebster Award is for those who have less than 200 followers on Bloglovin , this is a great opportunity for small and new blogs to find new readers and connect with everyone in the blogging community!

If I have nominated you, all you have to do is to accept the award, give me a follow-back via Bloglovin and Google Friend Connect (also Google+, Twitter @mieletvanille and Instagram @lemieletlavanille, do add me while you're at it) then answer a few questions!

When you nominate other bloggers, please make sure that you are following them and send them a message letting them know that you have done so.

The number of bloggers they're suggesting is 11.

******************

First of all, let me share the answers to Joyce's questions! 

  1. What is your favorite cosmetic brand? 
    Ooh, hot question! It's not easy to choose one, I tell you! As for cosmetics, if I really need to choose, then it would be Mary Kay. Love their eye shadows! The right pigmentation, last long, and I love how they come on it's own so I can arrange them prettily inside my case.

    As for skincare brand, I guess it's obvious. For the past 3 months, it's always have been THEFACESHOP. Hopefully I'll discover better product after this!
  2. If you could only bring one item with you to wherever you go, what would you bring? 
    One item? if we're still talking about cosmetics, it would be my compact powder. 
    If we're talking about skincare, it would be my Rice Water Bright Rice Bran Cleansing Foam. Period.

    But if we're talking about in general, that would be my smartphone. Everything about me is in there. I guess the charger is included as one with my smartphone so yeah. Smartphone it is. :D
  3. How much do you spend on your cosmetic per month? 
    Well, I think most girls do this (or maybe I'm just nerdy LOL) but I keep my beauty product expenses on track, from Budget App in my iPhone to Excel spreadsheets. So, the average sum of money I spent on cosmetic products is roughly RM900 (USD300). But to my estimation, I'm still good for the next few months even without buying anything. Maybe it'll be lesser for the upcoming months. So yeah.
  4. When do you start using skincare? 
    The last week of August this year, but I was just trying out samples. As for my current skincare products, I started on 17th of September this year. Totally did marked that date down in my Molang diary. :D
  5. What is the most expensive cosmetic that you've used before? 
    The most expensive cosmetic I have used before? I have to say Mary Kay skincare line for normal-oily skin. Spent roughly about RM600 for few items. But I didn't see any remarkable result so after I went through the frustration, I switched to Garnier for the next 6 months before I changed to K-beauty skincare products and since then, I never look back!
  6. Which country do you wish to travel most? 
    Japan.
  7. What do you do with your cosmetics if it's not suitable for you? 
    I never experienced this. Or maybe I did but I can't recall but I guess I'm lucky cause since I started using South Korean beauty products, all products that I have so far are working great with my skin. But as for the wrongly given samples by BAs to me, I'll use them to test new products I got for review purposes. Like doing reviews on cleansing products.
  8. What is your most favorite gift/present you've received before? 
    I honestly consider all great things in my life as gifts from God and for things like gadgets and whatnot, being given those things by my parents are something I couldn't describe of how grateful I am for that matter, but one thing that I consider as one of the best gift I have received is the amount of support shown by my followers, readers, and I sincerely hope we can prolong this I called as friendship.
    Beauty is subjective and I really hope we all can be beautiful in a way that satisfy our desires, exude the inner beauty within us, and appreciate the knowledge shared among us. 
     
  9. What's your wishlist for Christmas? 
    I don't celebrate Christmas but it's in my tradition that we celebrate new year (non-religion celebration), by just gathering with friends and family with good food and  talk about how was it in the previous year, sharing our new year resolutions, plans and whatnot.
    But as for New Year Skincare Wishlist, click here.
    As for non-skincare 2014 Wishlist, 10 top things! here it goes! 
    • New MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display
    • iPhone 5S 
    • iPad 3 with Retina Display
    • Instax Mini 8
    • Swatch Originals Chrono Plastic: Twice Again White
    • Trip abroad during summer break. Japan or visiting relatives in South Korea. 
    • Visit my best friend in Singapore.
    • To actually finish my driving lessons. I've been procrastinating due to busy schedule. 
    • Read Memoirs of Geisha again. 
    • Host my first giveaway for my lovelies followers and readers.

  10. If there's a product on your wishlist, and after reading many negative reviews, would you still purchase it? 
    Hmm, then I have to wonder how that product got into my wishlist in the first place. Whenever I want to buy beauty product, I usually will digest at least 10 reviews (for products above RM100) but I believe samples play vital roles in this matter. I would get samples first but if that's not possible, I guess I have to discard it from my wishlist then.
  11. If you could only choose one: make up or skincare?
    Easy question. Skincare. :D Why makeup comes in second cause I believe makeups are meant to enhance your looks, accentuate your facial features but then skincare offers you something that benefit your skin from the deepest layer of it. With good skincare routine, I believe at some point I probably will be needing only lipsticks or lip balms. 

************

Wednesday, 27 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! Happy Wednesday!!!

So while I was doing my New Year window shopping yesterday, Etude House has officially launched this new amazing line in continuation to the previous year Princess Etoinette, please welcome 







Finally after few days anticipating this new line, we get to see the full advert photos!! ^__^ 
Though I'm not in South Korea right now, so I guess I'll just share with you guys the photos that I got from the Facebook page. Just to motivate you girls (and me) to save money and get this when it's finally arrives in our country sometime early next year, okay!

First of all the Princess Etoinette Eau de Toilette 30ml




I guess this item is star product of this new line as it's being the first one being advertised. I think I'm going to love the scent cause I love anything with sandalwood and musk as perfume base. 
In the Etude House Official website they're selling this at 20,000KRW but a great deal cause it comes with the Mirror! 

Price: 20,000KRW

Next is Princess Etoinette 2 All Over Color 2g

I guess this can be a new addition to the three musketeers of  Heart Blusher,  Highlighter and Crystal Powder. hehehehe just kidding. :D


It's All OVer powder so I guess this can be used on our cheeks, eyes, upper lips even neck and shoulder bones if you go strapless. :D

Price: 25,000KRW

Next is the Princess Etoinette 2 Crystal Shine Lips 3.4g.





Oh, I love these colours. Again, I would love to get the  PBE102 Moon Flower Under the Stars.


PBE102 Moon Flower Under the Stars.

PRD302 A Sip of Bordeaux Wine

PPK 005 Versailles Noble Peony

All three of these come in the above packaging. ~swoon~

Prince: 13,000KRW

Next is the Princess Etoinette 2 Perfumed Hair Mist 120ml


Get that princessy hair style and spray with this. :D

Price: 8,000KRW

Now let's go to the Princess Blooming Perfumed Hands 70ml



Still amazed with the packaging~ :D

Price: 8,000KRW

Like I mentioned above, there's Princess Etoinette 2 Mirror about 8cm in diameter. 





Looks so elegant and not to mention prettyy!!!. Makes you wanna pop this out like every 5 minutes!! 

Price: 5,000KRW

Last but not least the Princess Etoinette 2 Moon Flower Perfumed Candle


  Imagine lighting this up while relaxing in your hot tub, the scent, the ambiance, ah~ a princess needs to release all the stress from a hard day at work or school with a good hot bath!
Price: 11,000KRW

Need help to imagine?


All photos credit to Etude House South Korea Facebook page. :D

Okay, that's the whole collection of Princess Etoinette Season 2 so I guess for Malaysian Etoinettes, we have to wait at least till January or February before we can get this. Or can get them online. :) I'm definitely not in a rush (plus my December allowance are allocated for Christmas Sets) so yeah, next year. :D
What you guys think? Is it amazing on its own? Is it comparable to the last year's? 
Does any of the product reminds you any other similar products?

Are you guys gonna get the whole line or the ones that most appealing to you? For me the Hand Cream is a must. hehe Love hand creams that's why. 

Tell me what you guys think and feel free to share if you're already in South Korea right now, experiencing these items first hands. :D

Review | Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet

Monday, 25 November 2013

Hello, lovelies! How's your Monday? For me, it was really tiring so to replenish myself with my version of elixir of life, I went to my new favourite hot spot, which is the newly opened Starbucks in Avenue K, next to KLCC and enjoyed a cup of Soy-based Green Tea Latte while sitting in a corner, watching other people as they come in and out of the cafe, drinking their coffees, having fun chatting with their friends, or having some business meetings. Oh, yeah. I love doing this once in a while.

Anyway, I was talking with some friends today about our favourite mask sheets and so far, I've only tried those from TheFaceShop and Etude House. Oh, also from in-house brand Watsons, and Garnier Light Complete mask sheets. 

So while we were comparing the goodness of our choice of favourites, one of them actually came up with a challenge, which is to do a mask sheets marathon i.e. using mask sheets every 2 to 3 days religiously. Since we've decided to do that, I guess it's natural for me to post all about it in here for the next two weeks as I have prepared 6 mask sheets for this marathon and all of them are from Etude House I Need You! sheet mask line. 

Since I already posted my review on Pearl Extract, today I'll be reviewing the Lemon.

Etude House I Need You, Lemon! Mask Sheet


Lemon Extract 1000mg
Brighten skin and providing vitality

With high amount of Vitamin C and lemon ingredients that help regulate sebum secretion, containing natural AHA-containing fruit ingredients, remove all the necessary waste and makes your skin smooth and clear.

Review | Etude House Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub

Sunday, 24 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! How's your weekend? It's a beautiful Sunday and if you don't have anything planned for the rest of your weekend, treat yourself with body massage or mini spa that you could do on your own.

Taken from Etude House Korea Facebook page. :D 
It's hard, isn't it? Good work!

For today, just rest~


Anyway, I had some free time in my hands right now hence another review! Today, in continuation from yesterday's review, I'm going to share with you guys one of my favourite scrub which is Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub from Etude House.


First of all, I love scrubs. Well, I love anything that remove dead skin cells off my skin so scrub is one of it. I tried other brands before and finally I found a product that is not harsh to my skin and doesn't break me out. Scrubbing my skin has been a beauty ritual for me for the past few months and I scrub at least once a week.

Etude House Princess Etoinette Season 2

Saturday, 23 November 2013

Hello, lovelies! Second post of the day! :D

I was browsing Etude House Official Korea Facebook page and dropped my jaw when I saw the new advertorials.

Feast your eyes on these, girls!

PRINCESS ETOINETTE SEASON 2.
COMING THIS WINTER NOVEMBER 27TH, 2013.


Aren't they pretty!!! *wink wink*




I saw the launching of Princess Etoinette I think sometime last year in January where all items come in pink, princess-ey looking and not to mention expensive. The Etoinette Brush Collection was retailed at RM189.90, Crystal Blusher and Heart Blusher at RM159.90, and Be My Love Crystal Shine Lips at RM89.90. Might be (way) cheaper in South Korea and I bet big fans of this collection was jumping in joy during last September Sweeties Club Promotion where the marked down prices are hard to resist!


Anyway, moving on to the new Season 2 collection, when I first saw it, I fell in love literally instantly. I love anything white. From room necessities (thanks to IKEA) to half of my closet.

The first product shown there is a white bottle of perfume, that comes in belle dress-shaped bottle with a balloon pump plus a huge lace flower attached to its head.
As for the scent, according to the Facebook page I was referring to, words like enchanting, elegant, attractive flowers in the gardens of Versailles came up and it's mentioned that the top note is the peony flower. For me, I love floral scents and I have to say that I'm really looking forward to this!


Up to today, Etude House revealed another secret i.e. another item from the collection, All Over Powder. Comes in the similar packaging with Crystal Blusher, but this one with silver crest (is that a right word? let me know). Looks pretty to me! I bet it can be used as highlighter as well.

I have to say, I'm falling in love with this collection. Not fond of the previous collection cause I'm definitely not a pink person but this line exudes the inner feminism and the same time give a pure and innocent look. Well, I'm not. haha :D

So yeah. Let's wait for more details posted in the Facebook page. I'll update more by then.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

LE MIEL ET LA VANILLE

Review | Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Powder Wash

Hello, beautiful people!! How's your Saturday? OMG! It's been almost a week since I last did a review!! My schedules are so tight right now, that's why. 6 more weeks before the semester break! I am excited because I just purchased my flight tickets home yesterday! :D

Anyway, enough babbling about my life, let's move on to the review for today, which is probably being reviewed more times than you can count because this product, along with its sisters, was released back in 2011. It's been over 2 years and this shows just how good this product is (same goes with others from the same line) that Etude House kept on manufacturing it and I do hope they gonna keep continuing cause I'm in love with this cleanser.

Now, let's go to the Product Description. 



Baking Powder gently exfoliates with its powder texture and penetrates pores to absorb oil and residue for a thorough cleanse. 

Basically, it says that this product will gently exfoliate your skin with its powder-ish texture and goes deep into your pores to absorb sebum and residues.

How to use:
First, wet your skin with water (it goes without saying that it's recommended for you to remove makeup by cleansing cream/water/milk before using this product.).
Then dispense the product onto your hands.
Proceed with applying the product on skin. I guess it's natural for us to spread the product using both hands before applying it on our skin.
Lather it up by massaging your skin for like 2 minutes.
Rinse with lukewarm water thoroughly.

Net vol.: 60g

Packaging:



I gotta say, the packaging is quite minimalistic, (which I love) but it's not what you expected from Etude House but again, thinking that this from 2011, maybe during that time the focus isn't really for the packaging part. Nevertheless, I love the blue hues and yes, this again has created confusion among the people in my house. If you can't find this, go look for it in your baking cupboard. 



It' been over a year since it's manufactured. It's okay. 



I just love the cap for this one cause it's so tight but easy to open and I think it's important cause this product comes in powder so in order to avoid spilling, close the cap properly by making sure you heard the 'click' sound. Oh, I love the baby blue hue. 

Texture and Scent:


It's powder-ish texture, duh and as you lather it with water, it'll turned into thick (depends on the amount you dispense) white liquid. I'm comfortable with it. No irritation none whatsoever. 

Unlike the Cleansing Cream, the scent of this product to me is like flour or thick soybean I guess. I have soybean powder shake to give me extra boost in the morning and they smell exactly the same. I'm neutral with the scent. I rather have the natural scent rather than it smells like chemicals. 

Verdict: 
I love this product so much! After using it, it doesn't leave my skin with tight feeling, just soft and supple and oh I just love it! I used toner right after, and didn't see any trace of makeup or anything on my cotton pads and I guess it's really does its job in deep cleansing! 

This product totally reminds me of my friend's Kose Powder Cleanser (I'm not sure the exact name) that I tried and fell in love with but damn it's so expensive in Malaysia! 

This is perfect after long hours in the studio which is why I bought the whole line for cause it really deep cleansed my skin and after using the product, I feel refreshed! 


Final verdict: 5/5. Love it! Will I repurchase? Definitely! I would recommend this product to those with skin like moi, oily-combo skin, and I guess it's not suitable for dry skin but no worries, this line has the moisturizing Whipping Foam version and I think it's in red hue. Go check it out while its still available!


This product is from my September Haul and according to my receipt, I got this during Etude House Sweeties Club September Promotion for only RM19.90. It's not pictured there though. The retailed price is RM39.90.


So, I guess that's it! I'll see you guys next post! Annyeong~

Review | THE FACE SHOP Real Nature Rice Mask Sheet

Sunday, 17 November 2013

Happy Sunday! It's been raining all day and I feel like want to stay in bed all day with warm milk and a good book~ with assignments and whatnot, keep on dreaming! T___T

Anyway, today it's going to be a quick post as I still have some final touch to do for my presentation tomorrow so I guess I'm going to review my first sheet mask from THE FACE  SHOP which is Real Nature Rice Mask Sheet.


Beauty Routine | Daily Skincare 1.0

Saturday, 16 November 2013

What a beautiful Saturday! It's been raining everyday in the morning for the past week and only today I got to see the sunshine through my windows! Anyway, today I want to talk about my current skin care regimen. Nothing to brag about, as it's only been 2 months and a half since I started. I just want to share with you guys out there, thinking that maybe you can point out if there's something that just not suitable or not supposed to do and hopefully we all can benefit by sharing what we know, yeah?

First thing is of course the Cleansing stage. For cleansing purposes, I'm using several products depending on my skin condition that day, and how deep I need to cleanse my skin especially in the evening.

Exfoliation. If you know me, then you know I love exfoliating my skin. To me it's important to exfoliate my skin at least twice a week to remove dead skin cells.
Current products:
Etude House Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub 
Skinfood Rice Wash-Off Mask  

Massage Cream: Like body massage, facial massage helps to relax your skin, alleviate dullness and sagging also it can promote better circulation below the skin and hence better absorption of skin care products. As for the texture of the cream, it should easily glides over the skin instead of being fully absorbed. This allows me to massage my skin easily without stretching or pulling it. I usually massage my skin at least twice a week.
Current product: TheFaceShop Rice Water Bright Massage Cream 

Wash-Off Masks: I love wash-off masks mainly because I love how I can feel the texture of the product while I'm massaging it onto my skin. The purpose of wash-off masks are usually to nourish your skin so my choice of products usually for brightening my skin which contain Apple, Kiwi, and Strawberry, as active ingredients, in Honey or Yogurt forms. To promote better absorption of the products into my skin, I will use my The Body Shop Deep Cleansing Face Mask Enhancer. Click here to know on how to use it.
Current products:
Etude House Wonder Pore Clay Clear Mask 
Etude House I Need You Honey Wash-Off Mask 
Etude House I Need You Yogurt Wash-Off Mask 

Toner: After using makeup remover, cleansing oil, foams, even masks, toner picks up any residue left over and refreshes and balances my skin pH as well.
Current product: TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal Brightening Skin Toner

Daily Paper Masks: If I'm not using my wash-off masks, I will use paper masks instead. It's so easy and simple! I'm big on paper masks so whenever I shop for skin care products, I will get like at least 10 for myself. Again, I'll focus on getting masks that contain brightening active ingredients. I'm using paper masks usually on Monday and Friday.
Current products:
TheFaceShop Real Nature Mask Sheets
Etude House It's Real Mask Sheets 
Etude HouseI Need You Mask Sheets

Essence or Serum: These are more concentrated version of a moisturizer that are formulated to target specific problem. Their small molecules allows them to penetrate deeply into the skin, smoothing and healing from the inside out.
Current product: TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal Effect Essence 

Emulsion: According to here, emulsion is practically a light moisturizer that is often used in the day, whereas traditional moisturizers, lotions and creams may be used at night. The advantage of emulsion is that as a light moisturizer it is just absorbed into the skin fasten, and does not clog pores; hence it is quite effective for people with normal-oily or oily skin. Furthermore, as a light moisturizer, it does not give the skin the shiny, oily look. I think I do agree with this definition.
Current product: TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal Brightening Emulsion 

Facial Moisturizer: It helps in preventing my skin from getting dry. Even though I have normal-oily combo skin, I always use moisturiser to compensate the stripped natural oil while deep cleansing my skin.
Current product: TheFaceShop Flebote White Crystal Moisture Radiance Cream

Sleeping Mask: I love sleeping mask! Like I mentioned in previous post here, it's something that I used to whenever I have the urge to give my skin extra care especially on those days when I'm lack of sleep or rest where my skin feels lifeless, dull, and just screaming for help! So I usually just cleansed, toned my skin and put this mask on and sleep with it. Wake up with a brighter and for lack of a better word, radiating skin.
Current product: TheFaceShop Raspberry Roots Sleeping Mask 

Soothing Gel: On those days where I go to events outdoor, I will come home with feeling slightly burning sensation. So I use this product to soothe my skin.
Current product: Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel 

Sunscreen: As I'm using lots of brightening products, it's imperative to use sunscreens. I get sunburn easily so I use sunscreens every day before leaving my room. Both for facial and body.
Current products:
TheFaceShop Natural Sun AQ Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ 
Etude House Sun Prise Cooling Body Spray SPF50+ PA+++ 

So yeah, that's about it. Phew! That was long, huh? Only after completing this regime I can start applying my makeup in the morning or go to bed at night.

How about you guys? Do share the one product that you would never skip not even a day. Also, what's your HG moisturiser.

Until next post, au revoir!

UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE 2.0. 

Review | Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Cream

Friday, 15 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! Finally, Friday is here!!! Well, at least you guys are going to enjoy your weekend as I'm going to have my first critique session for my major design project next Monday. Hence, no weekend! T__T

But no worries, because today I'll be reviewing another cleansing cream from my September Haul that I'm currently using especially on Monday and Friday because I consider this cleansing cream as a heavy duty product.

To some of you who may not know what is a cleansing cream, it's a product mainly used to remove light to medium makeup. A makeup remover that works like cleansing oils, but with less oily residue.

I have normal-oily combo skin so on the normal days when I only used CC cream, BB cream and powder pact or mineral loose powder, I will just use cleansing cream to remove my makeup. But I usually have long hours in the studio particularly on Monday and Friday and hence I require a different set of cleansing line to help me remove all the accumulated dirt on my skin. My TheFaceShop Rice Water Bright works in a same way but I just feel that I need a deeper cleansing plus, I do like to have a change of products I'm using once a while. Especially for cleansing products.

Anyway, let's move on to the product.


I think the Baking Powder line was released back in 2011 because I think I saw the ads were done by Dara 2NE1. I'm not sure. Feel free to correct me if you saw the ads were done by Park Shin Hye instead.
