Jane Iredale magic hour collection

Make up stuff always makes me happy!
Especially when it comes from one of my favourite brand - Jane Iredale.

I am always a big fans of this high quality brand, none of the collection that I ever tried and tested before, disappoint me :)

So when they offer me to review their magic hour collection, I was happy! 
 and as expected The collection is damn gorgeous as always.


The smooth texture of the new Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner naturally creates the rich, captivating look of kohl, but without any chemicals or irritants, and waterproof effect with the combination of natural coconut oil and silicones. Available in Black and Brown and packaged in a compact pod, each Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner provides long-wearing color that easily glides on with the Angle Eyeliner Brush designed to ensure precise application on the lash line.


The PurePressed Eye Shadow . Triple in Golden Girl creates golden lids that can be sultry or romantic, with three glimmering eye shadow shades that may be worn alone or together: a deep bronze, a shimmery dusty rose and a rich gold.







Lip Fixation is a dual-ended lip stain and gloss that provides strong, long-lasting color and moisturizing shine to the lips. Packed with botanicals, the stain soothes and protects lips for comfortable, buildable coverage without feathering or drying. The gloss creates a luscious, shiny look while hydrating and imparting a delicious vanilla taste on lips. The new mauve shade, Compulsion, creates a subtle, sultry lip, while Craze takes coral to a gorgeous golden hue.



This is my favourite color!

Ceritanya: lagi galau.

#Eaaa... ini judulnya malesin banget ya? Tapi gw pengen nulis aja buat kenang kenangan gw di masa depan, karena di hari ini gw berasa kegalauan paling galau di idup gw. Mulai dari:

1. Life
Ya eyalah ya, yang digalauin pasti ada hubungannya sama idup. At this point of time, pertama kalinya gw ga tau gw mo ngapain di idup gw. It's like, gw tau gw ada family yang mesti gw rawat, dan juga journey with Ethan yang makin hari makin cape tapi nyenengin, tapi gw berasa kayak kok " kosong " bener ya idup gw gini? Gw ga ada something yang gw look forward to, gw ga ada something yang bikin gw excited to run my day. Dan sungguh, jarang banget loh gw berasa begini.

Everything.Is.Just.So.Boring.

Kayaknya itu yang well describe idup gw at this point of time.

I don't feel excited with my life, i don't feel excited with my family, and i don't even know knapa juga gw begini? Normal kaga sih begini? Gw berasa hormon abis lahiran harusnya uda beres, tapi - sigh - ga tau la. T_T

2. Future
...................................................
I don't know. I don't even have things to achieve in my future.

By the time kita pindah ke NZ, the itu officially gw ga punya rumah, ga punya kerjaan, dan di tempat yang gw ga tau gw bakal betah ato engga. Crap is the word to describe how I think of my moving to NZ. But then again, kita pindah untuk Ethan - jadi gw bakal tahan tahanin idup di sono :)

3. Blogging life

Gw baru kali ini berasa gw bosen nge-blog soal beauty loh. Ini taon ke 3 gw nulis soal beauty2 gini di blog, tapi kok nulis beauty uda gampang banget ya kayaknya *gila songong mampus ya*, jadinya berasa ga ada tantangan euy. hahaha..

Lagi mikir, mo mulai fashion blog ah pas gw pindah ke NZ sama aktifin lagi life blog nya :)
Ada yang pernah berasa bosen blogging ga?

4. Hobby

Gw kan suka banget ya nge-dance sama make up, gw berasa sejak gw punya baby..gw jadi ga ada akses untuk jalanin hobby gw kayak dulu. Dan gw berasa there's a little part of me yang dying to have this 2 activity\ies back. 

Boro boro balik ke kelas dance..kadang mandi aja baru jam 4 sore :)

5. Me, myself and I

I am not happy. I think I am not happy being stay at home mom.
Walopun gw uda ambil keputusan buat di rumah dulu, jagain Ethan sampe dia gedean, tapi tetep aja there is a part of me yang berasa " I think I will be a happier person if I go to work ". Gw uda rela kok kalo bakal dicerca about being ga grateful to be stay at home Mom, dimana banyak orang yang wish they can stay at home with their kids.

I just feel that stay at home is not for everybody.

Bener ga?

Disney baby is in Singapore!


Disney baby is in Singapore!
As a mom of almost 1 year old son, this news is as good as having a new cosmetics brand in town and it's a must to check out!

Disney unveiled the new Disney Baby in Southeast Asia debut at Singapore’s leading parenting expo - Rise and Shine. I was there to shop for little one and when I saw the Disney booth, I immediately mesmerized by how wonderful and gorgeous the theme are, and I immediately join the contest to pick my favourite room in hoping to win the Disney hamper worth $400!

 The new Disney Baby collections provide feel-good, unique products organized around key moments of the day, including Dressing Baby, Mealtime, Playtime and On-the-Go.  The entire range of Disney Baby licensed consumer products offering for expectant parents, new-borns and toddlers will now be available for the first time in Singapore. 


I have some of the goodies from Disney baby that literally bring me back to my childhood memories and it gives me a warm feeling in my heart to know that I am growing up with Disney, and now I got a chance to pass on the Disney magic to my son.



Disney Baby provides Singaporean parents with quality products they need for creating magical moments right from the start, enhanced by the positive family-bonding and magical connection that only Disney brings. The range of products available spreads across nursery linens, feeding time, apparel, toys, bath-time and home-ware.


Disney Baby is distinctively more design-led, particularly the apparel offering, featuring a contemporary colour palette and beloved Disney characters and stories which parents and gift-givers recognise and treasure. The creative direction ensures ranges are coordinated with the emphasis on mixing and matching Disney character accents across ranges, especially within the nursery and home-ware collections. Characters which feature in the Disney Baby range at launch include Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and other classic Disney characters like Bambi.

“With Disney Baby, families can connect and grow a special lasting bond with our stories and characters. Our unique emotional connection with Southeast Asia’s families and kids differentiates Disney Baby, when compared to other baby brands as a trusted choice for expectant and new moms,” says Mark Coleman, General Manager – Retail and Licensing, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia.

“The Disney Baby represents a high quality that parents can trust and numerous gifting opportunities for extended family and friends who want to share in the Disney magic,” he adds.

Luscious Cosmetics

I received this bundle of colorful makeup about a month ago, and I just have time to blog about it like..now! Motherhood is surely run faster that the ticking clock. :)

Ok, now..without further due..I would like to Introduce to Luscious Cosmetics to YOU!

They strive to stay at the cutting edge of fashion to create niche products. They also work with the most sought after makeup artists and fashion icons to create shades that flatter and suit skin tones across all spectrums. 

Take a look on this collection they sent me :)

It's gorgeous!


On top of that, they sent me one beautiful sparkling face shimmer - Star light.
The texture is really light and oh so soft..



This shimmer powder has a nice glowing effect and I can imagine how beautiful this will be when I apply on my cheek and nose bridge.


The second this I received was this lipstick palette in red hue. One thing that interesting about this palette is they name the color with ladies name:
(top-bottom)
Cybil-Iman-Nadya-Mehreen-Meesha


Swatching on my lips as below:

Meesha

Iman

Mehreen

Nadya

Cybil

I LOVE all the colors. It's moisturized well on my lips, stay on pretty well and overall i was really surprised that with affordable price range - Luscious cosmetics could maintain the quality.

I will also share with you the swatches of the gorgeous eye shadow collection too; pardon the mess on the photo as I think the palette is slightly shaken during the shipment.
The Ather Shahzad has 48 eyeshadow colors in matte and shimmer, although the palette looks a bit messy in color arrangement - I still think the pigmentation is awesome and the color turns out really well.



Take a look at this:























It's quite nice right? I love it.

The palette comes with 4 blushes and 2 higlighter.
Honestly, one blush color is a little too strong for my liking, but maybe that is because i have a very fair skin. I don't think the right below color that close to red will look good on my NC 25 skin.
The rest of the colors is beautiful, all I need to is to apply it thinly and problem solved.



Luscious cosmetics is available in Singapore.
Do check their website HERE for more details.

'Till next time.

How I cope with my stress :)


What do you do when you are under stress? Are you marching straight to your fridge and grab a bar of oh so delicious chocolate? Or are you run straight to your cookie jar and wipe all of them?

Me? I eat a whole bowl of Ramen or a full plate of yang chou fried rice! Basically it's a free day for carbs!! Which is bad and i finally found a better way to calm myself down during the stress period, and it works to keep my figure as well :)

If you are a caffein slave like I am, go for a great coffee or a cup of award winning tea to fill the caffeine intake.

For coffee, i pick nespresso capsule.
I love to drink it cold. All i do is just putting 2 cubes of sugar, nespresso capsule and a good cold milk.




For the tea, nothing beats TWG! And the newly found tes - Shanghai Tisanes.
Oooh, purely indulgence.



I love to indulge myself with a good shower too. Something lavenderish really works to calm my nerves down and give me a good sleep at night.

I recommend acca kappa in lavender, the range available in Takashimaya level 3.



I am also taking a booster from Centrum STRESStabs,


Who doesn't know Centrum? As reliable as Centrum supplement, Centrum Stresstabs is a high strength Vitamin B complex supplement containing all the necessary nutrients to provide one with energy to boost both mental and physical health. It's available in gender specific formulas that are tailored to meet specific needs of men & women; contains zinc for men and iron + folic acid for women.


Do you know that to help one cope with stress in the fast-paced modern society, Watsons and Pfizer has introduced the new STRESStabs, a high strength vitamin B complex supplement which contains all the necessary nutrients to provide one with energy to deal with hectic everyday life. With Vitamin B complex infused, this energy booster provides the body with nutrition support in times of stress by replenishing energy levels. Vitamin B Complex is required by the body to maintain and sustain optimal performance. It plays a key role in cell metabolism and are therefore critical for energy production in the body.


STRESStabs is available at selected Watsons stores. The item retails at S$26.75 for STRESStabs Men 60s and S$26.75 for STRESStabs Women 60s (prices are with GST).

Lastly, I am enjoying my time with Lil love. Every moment I spent with him takes me to another world where making him happy and healthy seems to be the ultimate goal.



This are my ways to help me coping with stress, you can try it to see if you are any better afterwards. :)

Stay happy!
