Mine is ‘Very Black’. Well, I might be the adventurous type but not enough to walk around with gold coloured eyelashes, JUST YET!

Today I will show you a few steps on how to achieve beautiful eyelashes.

First, as usual cleanse your face and apply your foundation and everything else.I love to do my eyes at the end.

A tip I learned from Kim Kardashian’s make-up artist was to always brush down the mascara brush on your eye lashes.It gives the lashes more volume in the end.

 

Next, sweep the brush in upward motions until you’re happy with the results.

And now, the end results!

It’s lovely for day time when you don’t want too much drama for your eyes. It gives you nice curl , lengthens your lashes , adds a little volume and makes you look totally awake. It does not look fake. I am reaching out for this mascara more often than not these days.It does not flake or smear, and it has never stung my eyes.

If you are someone who likes alot of a drama to eyelashes, this may not be for you. It looks quite natural.But if you want a dramatic look, give your lashes a few coats and you’ll be good to go!

I would personally give this product 8/10. If you would like to give this product a try, you can head to any drugstore or pharmacy. Its priced at RM31.90 and I would say its a good value for such an awesome product. Strongly recommended.

Have fun trying it out!

The product I am going to review today is the Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Bright Fit.

Its one of the best BB creams in the market and best part is it comes in four shades!

The advatages of using this product compared to the other BB creams in the market:

– SPF30/PA++
– whitening, anti-darkening
– comes with a pump
– tons of product(60g)
– 4 shades
– easy to blend
– doesn’t appear cakey
– affordable

The disadvantages:

-Its a bit pale but as you build your make-up above it , it gets better, but you might want to think twice if its the only layer you’re going to be wearing before you head out.

-doesn’t really cover the redness on the skin

It comes in an extremely sleek and light tube which is in pink (my favourite colour)

 It has a pump which is great because you only pump out what you want to use and the rest doesn’t dry up.

I usually buy the sand beige one because its more suitable for my skin colour.

 have oily skin and black spots on my face

Are you short on time for luxuries such as moisturising? Now you can moisturise before you even get out of the shower!

NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioners are an easy and hassle-free way to moisturise your skin while in the shower. Designed to be used after shower gel, NIVEA In-Shower conditioners leave your skin feeling hydrated and silky soft, even after towel drying.

The In-Shower Conditioner instantly absorbs into the skin, leaving a nourishing and caring coating on the skin’s surface to give your skin the moisture it needs. Say goodbye to the days of waiting around for your skin to absorb moisturiser after showering, plus with no greasy after-feeling you can slip clothes straight on and continue with your day!

Available for either normal to dry skin with Sea Minerals or Very Dry skin with rich nourishing Almond Oil, NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion is the more convenient way to moisturise.

I believe that Nivea has released a miracle that works wonders on your skin. I tried the blue one which is for very dry skin.

Why choose the blue one?

  • Silky, soft skin feeling
  • With Almond Oil
  • Free of artificial colours and silicons
  • Skin compatibility dermatologically proven
  • For dry skin

I simply adore this product.I honestly gave up on baby-soft and moisturised skin as I have tried so many well- known moisturisers and I thought that this would just be a gimmicky product that would only gunk up my shower and make it slippery but it is amazing. It truly sinks in the second it hits your skin and makes it a lot more tempting to moisturise places such as your back and neck which are usually missed with regular lotion due to the difficulty reaching in and thorougly rubbing the lotion into these places, somehow the combination of this product and the water on your skin make it slide on perfectly and then a quick rinse and you are done – no greasy stuff sticking to your clothes you can get dressed instantenously without waiting for your lotion to absorb.

It leaves my skin so super soft after i come out the shower and believe it or not I sure got rid of my spots that i had on my back. i used to have a little bit of acne and loads of scars before I bought this moisturizer.In addition to that, the in-shower skin conditioner also come with moisurising properties that help repair up to 10 dry and damaged skin signs, namely dryness, dullness, roughness, peeling, itchy, flaky, scratched, stressed tight and unsmooth skin.

The bottle is still going and I’m still loving it…and apparently I smell great! My friends keep telling me how great I smell (I don’t know why they were smelling me…) and the only “scent” I was wearing was this! What an awesome side-effect! I’ve also discovered how to make it go even further – I spread it on my top half, rub my hands over everywhere I’ve already put it and there’s enough to do my legs as well. I use this everyday in the shower and it takes barely any time at all out of my super-busy morning routine and my skin feels soft 24/7. I will be using this forever. I love it and I am pretty sure that you would love it too.
