Review | TheFaceShop Oil Control Water Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ V205 Dark Beige

Sunday, 2 April 2017

This takes me back to 2013 when I first reviewed my first cushion makeup item, a CC Cream from the same brand. Long gone the days when I don't like coverage for my skin. 

When it comes to cushion foundation or base makeup, I always opted for items with sebum control for oily T-zone, medium to full coverage and long wear. Of course, the shade should be natural and doesn't make me look like a ghost. I don't know if 2 tone lighter than your natural skin tone is  trend for you but not moi. 

So today I'll be reviewing a cushion foundation from TheFaceShop which is the Oil Control Water Cushion that offers long-lastingness, moisture and coverage at that.

Beauty Empties | March

Friday, 31 March 2017

It's the end of the month so I guess it's time for a Empties post. I gotta admit that every time I went through my Empties bin, I felt good. I used to throw out beauty products unfinished but I've been looking forward to this post at the end of every quarter of the year. So without further ado, let's get started!

For makeup remover, I ran out of my favourite cleansing water which is the The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Water. This is probably my third bottle but I don't even know why I haven't done a review on this yet. Coming soon, I promise!

That Etude House Milky You Cleansing Foam is so gentle and I've been using it almost every morning. It's great but I'd love trying out new cleansers so I won't be buying this any time soon.

Fashion Haul | Charles & Keith Backpack and Wrislet

Friday, 3 February 2017

With New Year and upcoming holiday, I got some extra cash on hands so I was wondering what I should get to kick-start 2017 to motivate myself though let's be honest here. There were sale literally at every corner of the shopping malls! As I looked through my bag collection, I noticed that my purse is quite worn out so I decided to get myself a new one but of course, I just HAD to get that backpack the moment I laid my eyes on it. 

If you don't know me, then you probably should know that other than my Baju Kurung for office wear, I only wear blacks. Tops, bottoms, scarves, accessories, and most importantly, bags. I do have other colours for clothes but I preferably wear blacks to almost everywhere I go other than my workplace and of course, weddings.

Review | Sakura Kokoro Halal Japanese Skincare

Sunday, 29 January 2017

The only time I had the chance trying out Japanese skincare was when I was so curious about why Jun Ji Hyun replaced Park Han Byul as the ambassador of Hado Labo skincare and I ended up buying trial kit for its most known moisturising line. Today, I have the opportunity to share with you guys about this line of skincare which is also from Japan, Sakura Kokoro Halal Skincare by H&N Cosmetics, carried by

About Sakura Kokoro:

Review | Melati Halal Japanese Skincare

Friday, 27 January 2017

Makeup removers are among those products that ran like water. Well, at least to me, it kinda is as I can somewhat stretch my facial cleansers as I use different products according to my mood and I have separate cleansers for morning and evening but during weekdays where I usually wear wakeup to work, I tend to use one makeup remover throughout the month. 

I recently got this makeup remover from to try so I'll be sharing with you guys my thoughts on this very product. 

First, let me talk a little bit about this Melati Halal Japanese skincare line. Melati is a skincare line that is specialising in makeup removal, moisturising and sun protection products. The brand combines high quality Japanese cosmetic products with Islamic principles. 

Product Description:

This gel contains extract from coix lacryma-jobi ma-yuen seed (Adlay Coix seed) and Prunus lannesiana (a kind of cherry blossom), which has been well-known and loved since ancient times, for its effect to smooth, refine, and tone skin, prevent dark spots resulted from sun exposure, and moisturise skin. Continuous use of Melati skin care products to maintain natural, healthy, glowing skin.

Blogger Mail | Melati and Sakura Kokoro | HALAL Japanese Skincare

Previously, I talked about an online shopping site that is based in Tokyo, Japan that not only offering variable products ranging from Japanese food, fashion and of course, Japanese beauty products but also simple ordering process and effortless shipping all the way from Japan. No worry on authenticities of the products as are monitoring their merchants closely and providing direct customer services. 

Around last month, I received a package from them which contains Japanese skincare and makeup items so today I'm going to share with you guys these items as shown below so without further adieu, let's get right into it!

First thing first, let's talk about the shipping process. I received the package in exactly 9 days including weekends after I was notified about the shipment. 9 days is quite fast considering they're merely using Japan Post Express Mail Service. As of right now, they don't give their customer to select their choice of delivery and it's quite understandable as if you've been to the site, different products have different allocated time for shipping and some of them even comes with Free Shipping. 

The items came in that sturdy regular box and each item was bubble-wrapped separately and there are layers of bubble wrapper that line the inner of the box for more protection.

Now, let's go to good stuffs the store sent me. 

Online Shopping |

Monday, 23 January 2017

If you have been following my blog for about some time then you would notice that this blog is mostly about Korean beauty products so one of the few new things I did throughout 2016 was discovering Japanese skincare and makeup. I discovered Kate Tokyo and Bifesta in our local drugstore and I went to Kose beauty counter and Shu Uemura boutique  to find out more on products and brand concepts originated from the Land of the Rising Sun.

But of course, there are not many brands readily available here in this East side of Malaysia (gosh, I miss hanging out with my bestie at Tokyo Street, Pavilion KL!) so I'm more than elated when I discovered is a cross-border online shopping platform based in Tokyo, Japan and to date, their merchants are shipping products to 16 countries including Malaysia. Navigating myself around the website is so easy and it feels like as if I'm shopping on a Malaysia online shopping site as you can change the language (English, Chinese even Japanese!), the currency are already in MYR and payments are made via VISA, Master Card, PayPal or AliPay. More about

The products offered on the store are ranging from food (talk about Halal ramen, snacks and green tea), cosmetics, fashion, electronic appliances, even baby stuffs! Brands like Kanebo, Shiseido, and Kose are currently topping the best-selling rank in Beauty section.

One White Day

Timberland boots

Kate Spade crossbody flap purse
1,105 MYR -

Alexander McQueen ivory bag
1,060 MYR -

Kate Spade white strap watch
1,145 MYR -

Brioni fringe shawl
560 MYR -

Kate Spade transparent iphone case
180 MYR -

Gucci eau de toilette fragrance

MOLESKINE Volant large ruled white journal

After coveting that white planner from for months, I finally got one myself and it's truly pleasing to know that it comes with a "dirt" insurance.

Anyway, it's been awhile since I gathered white items for a set of look as for the past 5 years I'm so into black in literally everything. First, the Timberland boots! Ah, of course thanks to ultimate boy crush right now - Jungkook I'm actually considering to get a pair for myself and I'm eyeing few pairs at Timberland Boutique in Imago, KK Times Square.

Second, that white messenger bag! Ah~ the one from Kate Spade is indeed so pretty but I've seen similar design in Braun Buffel but it's way more expensive, haha

As for the accessories, no card holder is prettier than those from Alexander McQueen but as it's not readily available in Malaysia, I've seen similar items in YSL. I'm not sure a Kate Spade watch can really tie the whole look together but I'd prefer a G-Shock if I were to wear a pair of Timberland shoes. A shawl is a must if I were to hang out at Starbucks all day, I mean look at that golden tumbler! LOL

Gucci EDT is just an option here but these days I'm into Salvatore Ferragamo Mysteriosa. I just can't not have a black item for a day. haha <

Do you like wearing whites too? let me know by leaving comments down below. :)
