Stay Calm and Relax with Amante! ❤

The Butterfly Project has another biggest project in July! I am so excited for it! Each month they have awesome party for beauty bloggers. Aww.. I am so honored to be part of their community. (:


In the month of July, The Butterfly Project will have a massage party for 50 bloggers! Isn't it awesome? 


Now I am going to tell you guys why do I need a massage? 

First of all, I have never tried massage before.


I am being serious here. I admit that I have never tried on massage before. Of course my sister and dad helped me massage before but that doesn't counted ok? *wide grin*

Secondly I have never tried massage with friends and this will be the best opportunity to go on a massage party with friends and chitchatting nonstop. :P You know girls always enjoy gossiping together. *oops*


Enjoy the massage session with blogger friends! Yay!

Thirdly, my job requires me to carry laptop and sales kit to meet my clients. Everyday I have to carry one laptop bag and one shopping bag filled with sales kit with me to meet my clients. And it's not light! =( Whenever I come back from work, my shoulders would definitely stiff and ache so badly. =/ So therefore I need a massage badly.

Stiff shoulders everyday after I finish my work everyday.


Before I end my post, I would like to thank all the collaborating brands for making this Massage Party a successful one:

[Review] Colourific June Mivva Box ❤

This month's theme for June Mivva box is Colourific. You will get to see lots of colours in the beauty box. *teehee*


This month's design for the box is the same as the last month which I kinda like it. The design is so pretty that I can use it to keep my skincare products samples for travelling usage. (: So much in love with the Mivva box's design. *wide grin*



Unboxing time!


The products that I received for this month's Mivva Box!

Liese Bubble Hair Color - RM38 per box

Colouring with bubbles never be that easy. It contains plenty of foam to cover your hair completely and there is no need to worry about the drips. Each strand of hair is covered fully and evenly. It also contains honey and hydrolyzed silk as moisturizing and protecting ingredient which make your hair smooth an shiny!

Raspberry Brown 

Raspberry Brown is the newly launched bubble hair colour from Liese along with Creamy Beige. Raspberry brown is the brown colour with charming pink tone like raspberry. I can't wait to dye this colour actually and hopefully this colour can be enhanced on my dark brown hair. (: As for the Creamy Beige, it is elegant and soft yellow beige that is not too vivid.

Instructions on outside of the box.

Reviews
I have not tried this Liese Bubble Hair Color in Raspberry Brown yet. But I have the experience on using this before. I always find it hard for me to dye myself using the normal hair color but definitely not this. I find it easy for especially when I have to dye myself. But still do not shake the bottle that contains the hair color as it will turn into liquid and not into bubbles. Shake it gently for the color to be well mixed. I have to be more careful in dyeing because it will stain my clothes.

Rate of the product: 3.5/5

Beautymate Black Pearl & Calendula Officinalis Whitening Nano Mask - RM49.90 for 7 pcs. 

Tahitan Pearl, also known as the "Pearl of Queens", contains various minerals to effectively improve your skin's appearance and leave you feeling younger and refreshed. Calendula Officinalis  Flower Extract and Hippophae Rhamnoides Fruit Extract Powder provide proper nourishment to the skin texture and regulate the skin condition, while maintaining skin elasticity. Vitamin C and Niacinamide can enhance skin color and lend you eternal radiance. It is suitable for all skin types, especially rough, dull and sagging skin.

The mask contains a lot of essence which made my face soft and supple. I like the cooling effect when i put it on my face.

The mask can actually fit my big face which I can cover my chin as well. :P (P/s: Sorry readers, did not mean to scare you off with my ugly look with mask on. :P)

Reviews
After using the mask, I find the my face has already become smoother and it actually enhances my skin color. Most importantly, my skin elasticity is well maintained. (: 

Rate of the product: 4/5

Enuca Eye Essential Quad - RM88

Eye Essential Quad promises unlimited artistry in one versatile compact. A combination of natural extracts nourishes the delicate eye area even as it locks in and enhances color. Available in 3 color variants: Amethyst, Sunset and Smoky.

I love the unique design of the case. 

This color is always suitable to be used for my daily look for work. 

Reviews
Tried the quad and I find it nice especially I can use it daily for my day look. I can also create smokey look at night but just adding the darker color to the crease of my eyes. Works 2-in-1 looks for me. Can save money for that. :P 

Rate of the product: 3.8/5

Skin 79 Mini Rose Lip Gloss - RM16.90 for 1.1g

Shower the world with sweet and shiny smiles with the elegant mini rose lip gloss, colored in rose pink, a cute and portable companion of dry and chapped lips. It moisturizes and makes your lips shining and revitalize. The lip gloss also comes with a key chain and mirror, making it easier for application and attachable to mobile phones and bags.

Cute rose design. (:

Can be used to hang it in my handbag.

It has a small mirror in it. 

Reviews
I find that this lip gloss is suitable to be carried for traveling. So convenient to the extent that you can just hang it to the bag and bring it everywhere you go. In addition, it has a small mirror in it. I do not have to worry bringing extra mirror when I want to apply lip gloss. 

Rate of the product: 4/5

Mivva Face Chart 

This face chart is suitable for me especially when I want to play mix and match with my makeup products. 

Overall Reviews
This month's Mivva Box is totally worth it. A box of Liese Hair Bubble Color is already worth the price of a Mivva Box. Mivva always surprise me with awesome products from different range and brands. I can't wait for next month's box.

#20 Movie Review: Despicable Me 2 ❤

Was happy to know that the screening would be held at Sunway Pyramid because it took only 2 minutes to reach there from my house. I thought that I would not have to go early to queue up for tickets. But boy was I wrong, the car park was filled with cars that it took me 20 minutes to get a parking space. *I hate Sunway Pyramid's car park*

Thank god I managed to get a row F (not too bad). And happy to know that my bestie joined me for movie. We watched Monsters University together last week and this week she joined me for Despicable Me 2 movie since she loves minions too. *oops* Anyway, thank you Nuffnang for the tickets and TGV Cinema for the 3D glasses. Now I have two 3D glasses at home. :P Can mummy and daddy get me a 3D tv for me? Lol. :P



Synopsis
Gru is now no longer a villain after having saved his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes from rival super-villain Vector in the first film Despicable Me. He and two of his minions are approached and kidnapped by Lucy Wilde, an Anti-Villain League agent, and taken to the underwater Anti-Villain League Headquarters, where they ask for Gru to become a "spy" in order to track down a new super-villain who has stolen a research laboratory and a chemical compound that can transform lifeforms into invincible mutant killing machines.

Gru refuses, saying that he has new responsibilities now. Before he leaves, Lucy admits she was impressed by his work as a villain, stating that stealing the Moon was "amazing", before giving him her phone number and urging him to contact her if his mind changes. Upon his return, Dr. Nefario confesses to Gru that he misses being "evil" and has been offered employment elsewhere. Nefario then leaves Gru and his minions. This prompts Gru to contact Lucy and take the job. He works undercover in a mall as a runner of a cupcake shop, as the chemical has been tracked to the mall. Lucy has also been assigned as Gru's partner. He suspects one of the owners of a restaurant, named Eduardo, in the mall to be an old super-villain he knew several years previously, called El Macho, who supposedly died after an accident involving an active volcano. Lucy and Gru then decide to break into his restaurant and narrowly escape being caught, but find nothing to attach Eduardo to the crime.
When he arrives at the mall the next day, he sees the Anti-Villain League arrest the owner of a different store and tell Gru that the case is now closed and that Lucy will be getting posted in Australia for different work. Gru is not able to muster the courage to tell Lucy how he feels. The family then goes to Eduardo's party. Gru follows Eduardo and discovers that he was correct in assuming he is the man behind El Macho. Gru also discovers that Dr. Nefario has also been working for Eduardo and that the duo have been capturing and mutating some of Gru's minions. Eduardo offers Gru a chance to work together and rule the world, but Gru makes his excuses and leaves with the girls.Lucy, having realized that she wants to be with Gru, arrives at the party, but Eduardo discovers who she is and captures her. Dr. Nefario calls Gru to tell him what has happened, and Gru takes two of his minions to get Lucy back.

Reviews
I find that the movie revolves about how minions act stupidly in the movie which rather amuse me. The scene where both Gru and Lucy get married in the end with the minions singing the song  make my tummy bursts into laughter. The minions are really cute to me and the plot is not that interesting as I thought. Anyway I enjoyed watching the movie with my friend. At least, this movie can reduce my stress from work at least once. :P Rate of the movie: 3.5/5.

#18 Movie Review: Monsters University ❤

Was happy to know that my good friend of mine was able to join me for the premiere screening of Monsters University last week. Sorry for the late reply as I was pretty much loaded with my office work and I did not even have much time to sleep.


This time, Nuffnang had their screening at MBO Cinema, Citta Mall. I have been to Citta Mall once with my cousin last year and this will be my first time watching the movie at Citta Mall. The environment here is a bit quiet but their interior designs of the cinema totally caught my attention. I remembered the MBO Cinemas' designs that  I went before weren't that awesome compared to this.

Anyway here's a photo of the cinema with their latest movie in cinema, Monsters University. (:

How creative is this!

The seats in the cinema hall were pretty cool. They were arranged in a pair and I find it very comfortable too. (:



Synopsis
Michael "Mike" Wazowski has dreamed of attending the prestigious Monsters University. His dream comes true to become the college freshman. Mike is excited to finally enter, and begins majoring in scaring. On his first day, Mike befriends the nerdy and shy Randall "Randy" Boggs, who desires to be popular and has difficulty controlling his camouflage power. 

While studying scaring one night, Mike encounters an arrogant, playful, all-brawn, large blue monster named James P. "Sulley" Sullivan, who is in the same dorm as he and breaks into Mike's room to hide a Scare Pig named Archie, who is the mascot of rival college, Fear Tech. After greeting each other, Archie steals Mike's hat and he and Sulley follow Archie outside where they have a struggle to capture Archie. When they do catch Archie, Sulley is invited to join Roar Omega Roar, the top fraternity on campus. Mike tries to join, but an argument with Sulley leads a rivalry between the two.

While the duo compete to see who's the better scarer for part of the semester, Dean Hardscrabble, the stern headmistress of the MU scaring program, says to the students in Professor Knight's class that an exam will be given at the end of the semester, with the ones who failed being forced out of the scaring program. Eventually, Mike and Sulley's petty competition gets out of hand and causes a mistake that Dean Hardscrabble expels them from the program and also results in Sulley getting kicked off his fraternity. Sulley and others have a hard time believing that Mike could be a good scarer. Mike finds out that Dean Hardscrabble will probably let him rejoin the program if he joins a fraternity competing in the upcoming Scare Games, a series of physical challenges that tests a monster's scaring ability. However, he is ostracized by all the fraternities.

But hope arises when he joins Oozma Kappa, a group of misfit monsters; consisting of founder and mature student Don Carlton, nervous and shy Scott "Squishy" Squibbles, free-spirited and eccentric Art, and bickering siblings Terri Perry and Terry Perry, who share the same body.

Oozma Kappa procees to the next rounds as a result of Mike's training, surprising everyone. During a party at ROR house, the ROR pranks Oozma Kappa and humiliates them in front of the whole university. Mike brings them to Monsters Inc. to lift their spirits where they are almost caught by Monstropolis authorities for trepassing. Feeling motivated, Oozma Kappa makes it to the final round against ROR. Even as the final round arrives, Sulley has a hard time believing Mike to be a good scarer. So in the final round, he manipulates the equipment so that Mike can register a good score and allow Oozma Kappa to win the tournament. When Mike realizes this, he is heartbroken and decides to prove to everyone that he is capable of being a good scarer. So, he ventures out into the human world while Sulley, feeling guilty, confesses to Dean Hardscrabble about the cheating. Mike arrives at a closet in a summer camp, but his plan goes wrong and he fails to scare the kids.

Back in the university, the Dean has been notified that someone broke into the door lab. Realizing it is Mike, Sulley enters the door and arrives at the camp looking for Mike. At the camp, the police have arrived looking for intruders. Sulley finds Mike by the lake and they both run back to the camp to go back to the university. However, Dean Hardscrabble deactivates the door until the CDA arrives, trapping Mike and Sulley in the human world. Mike realizes that the only way to get back into the monster world is to generate enough scream energy to power the door. Working together, Sulley and Mike are able to scare the investigating adult humans to the point that they are able to make back through the door, which explodes from the strong burst of energy. This causes Mike and Sulley to be detained by the CDA, thus expelling them from Monsters University. The movie ends showing that Mike and Sulley are employed at Monsters, Inc. as mailmen in the company's mailroom.

Review
I did not watch the previous sequel but I do find this movie a bit cute especially Mike. He works very hard in order to achieve what he wants. Rate of the movie: 3.0/5.

#16 Movie Review: World War Z ❤

Last week, I had a chance to watch the premiere screening of World War Z in 3D with the rest of the bloggers and churpers at Tropicana City Mall. Got there pretty late as I finished work pretty late. I was the last person to collect my tickets. So you know that I would be sitting on the first row. Sitting on the first row was ok for me but not in 3D glasses. Wanted to go back straight away after collected my ticket but I met Kelly and Cindy while heading to cinema. Kelly was watching alone and she offered me to sit with her because I was watching alone. Thank you for your kindness, Kelly. Now I can still comfortably at the few rows behind in 3D glasses. (:

Collected this badge for my little sis. Thank you Nuffnang!  (:

Synopsis
Gerry Lane, a former United Nations employee  with his family sit in a heavy traffic in Philadelphia while the radio reports on a rabies outbreak that has spread internationally. They are attacked by masses of zombies, and those bitten become zombies as well. The Lanes narrowly escape and flee to an apartment complex to be extracted by a helicopter sent by Gerry's former UN colleague, Thierry. 

The family reaches the helicopter and are taken to a US Navy ship off the coast of New York, where a team of analysts and military personnel are analyzing the scope of the worldwide outbreak. A virologist, Dr. Fassbach, argues that the plague is a virus, whose origin must be found in order for a vaccine to be developed. The naval commander tells Gerry that, because of his expertise as a former UN investigator, he is to investigate the virus and help Fassbach find the source of the outbreak. Reluctantly agreeing for the sake of his family's staying on the ship, Gerry leaves on a plane for the military base in South Korea.

Arriving at the Camp Humphreys at Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi-do in South Korea, where the word "zombie" was supposedly first used in reference to the outbreak, they are attacked and Fassbach accidentally kills himself. At the base, Gerry learns from the commander that the zombies are attracted to noise. The commander also informs Gerry of a local who was found foaming at the mouth that bit a doctor and shows him to a room of incinerated bodies, where they, the soldiers, first saw the outbreak. An imprisoned CIA traitor tells Gerry to go to Jerusalem, where leader Jurgen Warmbrunn has established a safe zone just before the outbreak was officially acknowledged, implying Israel might have had prior knowledge.

Heading to Jerusalem, Gerry meets Warmbrunn, who explained that Israel's intelligence service, Mossad had months earlier intercepted communications from army general in India, which stated that Indian troops were fighting the "undead". With this knowledge and using a program implemented to prevent Israel being caught off guard, as in past conflicts, a quarantine is established, and they are letting uninfected civilians in. Due to loud noises coming from within the zone however, thousands of infected on the other side of the wall begin piling onto each other and climb over. Chaos erupts, and Gerry's escort soldier, Segen, is bitten. Gerry immediately cuts off her hand to prevent her from turning and they escape on a plane as Jerusalem falls to the infected.

Contacting Thierry, they are diverted to Cardiff to a World Health Organization research facility to assist in finding a cure. On the plane, a stowaway zombie attacks, resulting in Gerry throwing a grenade at the back of the plane. The explosion depressurises the cabin causing everyone to be sucked out. The plane crashes with Segen and an injured Gerry as the only survivors. 

The duo arrive at the facility, where Gerry deduces that the infected do not bite people who are ill and therefore unsuitable as hosts for viral reproduction. He volunteers to test a terminal but curable pathogen on himself to see if his idea works. But the wing that the pathogens are stored is filled with zombies, after one of the doctors accidentally infected himself and his colleagues. Gerry makes it into the vault with the pathogens and injects himself with one. He is able to return to the main lab due to the pathogen "camouflaging" him from the zombies. The doctors rejoice at the discovery and treat him immediately after his safe return.

Gerry returns to his family in a safe zone in Nova Scotia. A "vaccine" derived from deadly pathogens is developed that would act as camouflage for the troops battling the infected, and for fleeing civilians. The footage then shows offensives beginning; humanity now has hope.

Review
Overall the movie is not bad. Just some of the scenes are too quick that I did not able to catch up. I do not really like Brad Pitt's hairstyle in this movie. Anyway, he is still hot to me. :P I also enjoyed the final scene where Brad Pitt volunteers himself to test a curable pathogen on himself. What a big sacrifice of himself. *aww* As for the 3D effects, the effects weren't good and the 3D glasses were damn painful. I prefer to have it in 2D instead.

Rate of the movie: 4/5.

[Review] Ishizawa Lovedrops Eyelush Curler Mascara ❤

ALERT! This post is a beauty review and therefore there would be a lot of self-capture shots. *wide grin*

Introducing Ishizawa Lovedrops Mascara with my kawaii look. :P

When I first came across Ishiwaza Lovedrops Mascara from J Pop Corner,  I have no idea about this brand.  
But I was more than happy enough to try out the mascara because I have super short lashes. Despite trying out various types of mascara, none of the mascara really satisfy me. I even tried out the lash serum and it did not work on my lash at all. =( Oh my dear lashes, why would you do such thing on me? =( 


Before I forgot, J Pop Corner imports renowned Japanese beauty cosmetics products to Malaysia such as Ishizawa, Eyemazing and etc. 

I love how Ishizawa Lovedrops Eyelush Curler Mascara comes in unique packaging where it looks like a booklet for easy storage. I can always slip the package in between the books and it is convenient for me. 

On the other hand, it has full instructions and sketch written in the booklet for easy convenience.


I tried this mascara for the past one week and it does bring some effects on my lashes. My lashes are getting longer after the mascara application. This mascara  also curls up my lashes without using eyelash curler! It is formulated with curl up ingredients, to create a beautifully curled eyelashes. I can also curl the lashes at any angle.

Look at the instant results! My lashes are so much longer after the application. 

Before and after mascara application. 

I can finally achieve long lashes and  I can apply it anytime without having to bring eyelash curler along when I go out.

In addtion, I also love the W-edge comb applicator where it coats each last from root to tip and it separated each lash and adds volume to my lashes! There are two comb where the full comb feature can be used to comb the upper lashes and the half-comb feature is used to comb my lower lashes. It's so much easier than I thought! 




I am really happy because I can finally go out without eye makeup and only with this eyelashes application. I can even save money on getting fake eyelashes which I find it hard for me to put on each time. This Ishizawa Lovedrops Tearbaby Beauler mascara does make wonder on my lashes! Hooray!



This Ishizawa Lovedrops Eyelush Curler Mascara is available at only selected Watson outlets at RM78.90. Try it and see the magic yourself! For more info, check it out at https://www.facebook.com/jpopcorner.my!

Thank you and have fun reading! (:
