I have an awful case of dark circles under my eyes which makes my face look tired all the time.Do you have the same problem?

Here’s your answer!

How To Apply?
 

Using the lipstick like concealer stroke the fake up underneath each eye area and gently pat outward to blend with your finger. Touch up on your existing concealer or make up to hydrate and freshen up. Benefit Cosmetic says it won’t cake, crease or settle! You can also combine it with other Benefit products (the secret formula) for an instant  eye makeover.

What you have to do is, draw a curved shape under your eyes like what I have done..

and  use your fingers, or a concealer brush (I prefer my fingers) to blend it all in.

I am sure many of you have seen or heard of MR D.I.Y., but never stepped into their store before.

Well, things are about to change.

Here’s a little something you might want to know about them. MR. D.I.Y. was established in July 2005 with the purpose of providing consumers with the convenience of a one-stop outlet for all their shopping needs. Nine years ago, they opened our first outlet at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur. Today, MR. D.I.Y.has proudly spread their enterprises throughout the country with over 90 outlets throughout West Malaysia. KUDOS!

We all have different hobbies and past times, different needs in life and different monthly budgets. I can assure you that MR D.I.Y caters for all your needs.

Here are the items I shopped for today!

I needed to buy tupperwares for my sister to take food to school, and I wasn’t expecting much but my, was I in for a shock! It was like a “world of tupperwares”. All shapes and sizes. In so many different colours, for so many purposes!

I have to say , I have so many positive things to say about it! Taking a shower with this shower foam this morning really put me in a good mood. The smell relaxed me and I feel so refreshed…and the best part?? ITS PINK!!! 
 
 
IMG_0475
I was a little disappointed that this product did not come with a pump, because I believe that make-up,shampoos and shower gels with pumps reduce wastage of the product. 
 
but…

As soon as I poured it onto my palm I felt like I was holding the softest wool, the lightest feather, the softest silk. It was a beautiful feeling.

I poured a very tiny amount onto my hands, as you can see.

Honestly, I was so surprised with the results! My skin feels so hydrated and soft. The smell was also so sweet and it made me feel like I’m floating on clouds! Its affordable and gives you the best feeling in the world! My insides just felt like jumping up and dancing!
