Lipstiq Summer Party at Hilton PJ ❤

This would be my first time attending summer party organized by Lipstiq.com. I would like to apologise for this freaking late post. I know I procrastinate a lot! Sorry guys! Been caught up with work for the past few weeks and only last week I was free to update my blog not until during my long weekend for Malaysia Day celebration. (Something happened that long weekend that I had to go back hometown. Sigh.)

Lipstiq's crew team. They are so nice and friendly. (:

Lipstiq sticker!

Anyway back to the topic though. It was a sunny Saturday and I decided to wear my sleeveless bright colour blouse to pair it with long jeans. I know the party was held at the poolside but I can't wear shorts that day because I had to attend another event right after the party. Bear in mind that it was bright and sunny that I was sweating. =.=



It's been awhile since I visited Hilton PJ. The last time I came here was my cousin's wedding few years back.



The weather was so hot that day but thanks to Lipstiq.com for being so considerate that they provided each of us a handmade paper fan for us. (: So sweet!

The paper fan made by the Lipstiq.com team.

While waiting for the rest to arrive, we took number of photos around and managed to capture a few awesome shots with the props that they provide. I personally love the photo below taken with Angeline's sunglasses. (:

Thank you Angeline for borrowing your sunglasses as the photo props. (:

Since the weather is so damn hot, I tried to camwhore awhile before my makeup melts at the end of the day. (: *hee*

A selfie shot with the paper fan.

I did not go there with friends and it was so coincidence enough to meet some of the blogger friends there. Yay! (:

 
With ma friends (:

Another shot of us again. :P

Emcee of the day was the Editor in-Chief for Lipstiq.com, Miss Elfie Jane.

There were Sorella Lingerie Fashion Show by Amber Chia Academy, skin care tips and styling tutorials with Bravado t-shirts.

Shot #1

Shot #2

The event was filled with cool musics from Universal Music Malaysia and there were some awesome prizes from Nokia, Spritzer, Skinfood, Luxola, Sorella and others.






A beauty blogger, BisouBonBon taught us on how to make pimple paste, scalp masque and eczema oat milk bath on that day. Check out her blog for more info: http://bisourose.blogspot.com



 Light refreshments were served to fill in our hungry tummy.
You know girls always love taking photos and I would not want to miss it definitely. Lol! I am happy to meet up with my friend after so long. We used to work together for a Nokia event and we met up after 2 years!

Kelly Chan, she is one of the model that day. (:


With Kelly. (:


A shot with Angeline and yours truly. (:

I was lucky enough to win two sets of mini water dispenser from Spritzer! You guys can check the video below to see what were the agendas of the day. (:

#32 Movie Review: Paranoia ❤


Enjoyed watching this movie. Thank you Nuffnang. (:

Synopsis
Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a low-level inventor for a corporation run by Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman). After being fired for insubordination, Adam uses the company's credit card to pay for bottle service for his friends at a club. Adam is later confronted by Wyatt's enforcer, Miles Meechum (Julian McMahon), who blackmails Adam into becoming a corporate spy for Wyatt by threatening to have him arrested for fraud.

Adam is trained by Judith Bolton (Embeth Davidtz) and infiltrates a company run by Wyatt's former mentor, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford), who stole several of Wyatt's ideas, by providing Goddard with an advanced software able to hack into cellphones, with potential military applications. FBI Agent Gamble (Josh Holloway) interrogates Adam, revealing that three other employees of Wyatt who transferred to Goddard's company were found dead, but Adam ignores him.

Adam finds out Emma Jennings (Amber Heard), a woman he met during the party, is the Director of Marketing of Goddard's company and seduces her in order to steal files about Goddard's upcoming projects and give them to Wyatt, who threatens to kill Adam's father, Frank Cassidy (Richard Dreyfuss), if Adam doesn't steal a revolutionary prototype cellphone developed by Goddard.

Adam steals Emma's fingerprints and uses them to gain access to the company's vault, where he is confronted by Goddard, who intends to use evidence he has acquired that Adam was spying for Wyatt to take over Wyatt's company. Emma finds out Adam used her and breaks up with him. Adam then recruits Kevin to help him. After revealing that Bolton was spying on Wyatt for Goddard, Adam sets up a meeting with Wyatt and Goddard, where both reveal the crimes they have committed to sabotage each other's companies.

Adam reveals he used the software to transmit their conversation to Kevin's computer, who provides the recordings to the FBI. Goddard, Wyatt, Bolton and Meechum are arrested by Gamble, while Adam is released for contributing with the FBI's investigation. He then reconciles with Emma and Frank and opens a small electronics store in Brooklyn with his friends.

Review
The plot was okay. I can learn on how the mobile companies are competing with each other in order to survive. In this world, one has to be more creative than the others in order to make their technologies more unique than the rest and manage to convince the consumers. I also realised from the movie that we should be alert and cautious towards each other even though the person is your personal assistant/closest people. I somehow love the plot and the rate of the movie is 4/5.

#31 Movie Review: Riddick ❤


Credits to Churp Churp for the tickets and merchandise! (:

Synopsis

Five years after The Chronicles of Riddick, Riddick has become increasingly uneasy in his role as Lord Marshall of the Necromonger fleet. His refusal to swear into the Necromonger faith has caused dissent among his subjects. Riddick strikes a deal with Commander Vaako; the location of Furya and a ship to take him there, in exchange for Vaako becoming the next Lord Marshall. Led by Vaako's aid, Krone, Riddick and a group of Necromongers arrive on a desolate planet. Recognizing it is not Furya, Riddick kills most of his escort when they attempt to assassinate him. In the chaos, Krone causes a landslide and buries Riddick alive.

Riddick manages to reset and splint his broken leg and fend off native predators; including Vulture and packs of Jackal-like beasts. Needing time to heal, Riddick sequesters himself within the ruins of a long-dead civilization. Riddick then surveys a vast savanna beyond some rocky cliffs, but the only passage through is guarded by a community of poisonous, scorpion-like creatures called "Mud Demons" which inhabit interposing muddy pools.
Two ships promptly arrive in answer to the beacon; the first a group of bush-league bounty hunters led by a violent and unstable man named Santana, and another better-equipped team of professional mercenaries led by a man named Boss Johns. Riddick later manages to steal power nodes from each of the teams' ships and then approaches Johns and Santana to strike a deal for their return. However, the conversation turns out to be an ambush. Johns' second-in-command, Dahl, shoots Riddick with powerful tranquilizers. In an effort to defend his master, Riddick's alien jackal brutally attacks Santana, but is shot multiple times in the throat.
Back at the Merc Station, Johns interrogates Riddick about the final fate of his son, William J. Johns. When the storms finally reach the station, large numbers of Mud Demons emerge from the muddy ground, and besiege the station, killing Lockspur and Moss. Johns agrees to release Riddick in order to locate the hidden power cells. Santana stops him and attempts to kill Riddick, who is worth twice as much dead as he is alive. Riddick instead beheads Santana with severe prejudice for killing his animal companion.

They then fight their way to the ship which houses the hover bikes with Vargas being killed. Johns, Santana's man Diaz, and Riddick leave the ship together on hover bikes on a mission to retrieve the power nodes. During their journey, Johns crashed his bike to the terrain and is rescued by Riddick. With both of them distracted, Diaz attempts to kill Riddick and Johns. Riddick fights and kills him, but not before unintentionally damaging the only working hover bike (Diaz had already disabled the other one).

Riddick and Boss Johns fend off a seemingly endless horde of Demons while running back to the station. Riddick is severely wounded. Johns takes both nodes and abandons Riddick. After treating his wound, Riddick begins to fight a futile battle against the advancing Demons. Just when it seems he is about to be killed, Johns arrives in one of the ships and shoots the creatures while Dahl descends to rescue Riddick. Riddick then takes the other ship and as he flies away from the planet, he is stopped by Johns in the other ship. Johns asks Riddick where he will go, but thinks better and decides to not know. Riddick praises Johns for being a better man than his son and departs into deep space.


Review
It takes awhile for me to understand the whole movie because I did not watch the previous sequel. Nevertheless, this movie isn't that bad and I can see how much Vin Diesel love his dog companion when he found that he was shot to death. Aww... Anyway, I'll rate the movie: 3.5/5.

#30 Movie Review: We're The Millers ❤

Credits to Nuffnang for the movie tickets. (:

Synopsis
Low level marijuana drug dealer David Clark is robbed of his money and stash, some of which he owes to his supplier. His boss, wealthy drug lord Brad Gurdlinger forces David to smuggle marijuana from Mexico in order to clear his debt. Realizing that one man attempting to get through customs is too suspicious, he hires a stripper named Rose (Jennifer Aniston), a runaway teenage girl named Casey (Emma Roberts), and his virgin 18 year-old neighbor Kenny (Will Poulter) to pose as a bogus family called the "Millers".

Because of the extra load of the marijuana on the RV, one of the radiator hoses breaks while going up a steep incline. A family they had encountered at the border called the Fitzgeralds, consisting of Don, Edie, and Melissa, catch up to them and tow the Millers' RV to a repair shop. On the trip to the shop, David learns that Don Fitzgerald is a DEA agent after finding his badge and gun in the glove compartment.

The next day, when the Millers head to the shop to pick up the RV, Chacon and his henchman One Eye (Matthew Willig) are waiting for them and prepare to execute the family. They immediately tell Chacon that they aren't a real family and that they didn't know they were stealing from him. Rose is given a chance to prove that she is a stripper by dancing, and when she gets close, turns a steam vent onto Chacon. The Millers then escape in the RV, with Kenny behind the wheel.

Chacon then comes around the corner and is about to kill them all, but David hits Chacon and he drops his gun. Rose picks it up and accidentally shoots Chacon in the shoulder and as he is recovering, Kenny punches Chacon and knocks him out. Don arrests Chacon and One Eye and tells the Millers that he will arrest them too, but actually gives them the opportunity to leave. David delivers the drugs to Gurdlinger who tells him he's late and that their deal is off. DEA agents then crash into the room, arresting Gurdlinger. The agent in charge is Don, who tells David that he will have to be in the witness protection program until Gurdlinger's trial. He then adds that anyone that was a witness to the crime will be in protection, and David smiles.

Review 
Too much of vulgar words in the movie which I don't really like. But overall the movie is hilarious. I love Jennifer Aniston in the movie. Rate of the movie: 3/5.

BCL Kawaii Makeup Workshop ❤

I always love Japanese makeup back in those days because they can create different looks from a few make up products. Anyway recently, I attended BCL Kawaii Makeup Workshop which was organized by Mandom Malaysia to introduce some of their best selling products from BCL.  I was lucky enough to attend this workshop as Mr Tanabe, the makeup artist flew all the way from Japan to teach us on how to apply makeup using BCL products. *jump with joy*

Mr Tanabe and his model.

As I know there are four looks which are the latest trend in Tokyo which are Shibuya Girl, Harajuku Girl, Akihabara Girl and Yokohama Girl. Shibuya Girl brings some confident and cool look followed by Harajuku Girl which brings pop and sweet look. As for Akihabara Girl, it brings dolly and natural look and Yokohama Girl brings fairy and elegant look.


This workshop was conducted by Mr Tanabe from Japan who has great experience in beauty industry. He frequently appears on Japan TV shows and magazines, imparting his knowledge on his exquisite techniques. In this workshop, Mr Tanabe taught us on how to create Harajuku Girl look. To those who doesn’t know, Harajuku Girl loves accessories, casual and colourful clothes and it will definitely look young and cute like teenager! (:

Lucky enough I was in this session because I want to look young and cute like teenager because I practically a working lady now who doesn’t look young and cute anymore. =/ But too bad I forgot to bring my camera again. How could I miss such moments with awesome people around me? But thank god I have two phones with me to capture those moments! (:

 Clearlast Face Powder

Mr Tanabe used Clearlast Face Powder as the base makeup for longer lasting makeup. The powder had to be put round and round for glossy skin. There are two types of Mat Ocher or Shiro-Hada (White and Brilliant) Ocher. Oh boy, the packaging is so damn cute especially with the pink puff and with the black ribbon on it. Never was I had seen such cute puff powder. *thumbs up*

Browlash Ex With Eyebrow Pencil and Liquid

The next step was to apply eyebrow. This is one of the most unique eyebrow products I have ever seen. This Browlash Ex With Eyebrow Pencil and Liquid comes with double tip of pencil and liquid which I find it very useful for me. It has two colours which is Natural Brown and Greyish Brown. To fully utilise the double tip, draw the eyebrow using the eyebrow pencil from the outer corners of the brows, to the middle and to the start of the brows. This will eventually create the natural looking effect. As for the liquid liner, fill up the gaps and you can finally achieve the bold looking eyebrows! *hooray*

Mr Tanabe was so kind enough to teach all of us on how to apply the eyebrow as you guys know that eyebrow is the hardest part to be applied. 

 Mr Tanabe helped Calista to apply the eyebrow.
Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow

Mr Tanabe later taught us on how to apply eye shadow. When I first got hold of the eye shadow, I was telling myself, “This is the eyeshadow? How come it look like a pencil to me?” This Makemania Data Gradation Tip Shadow which comes in Bronze Brown and Light Brown. To apply this eye shadow (using the pink colour), start it from the edge of the eyes to create this Harajuku girl look and apply it evenly on your eyelids. After that, apply on the lower lash line to create the pop and sweet look.

Makemania Data Pencil Gel Eyeliner

Next one is the Makemania Data Pencil Gel Eyeliner in Jet Black and Deep Brown. Gel liner normally comes in bottle form and this is my first time seeing gel liner in pencil form. This would be a great gel liner as I just apply at any amount of gel liner I like by twisting it. To create this Harajuku Girl look, draw a very thin line close to lash line and pull the line downwards.

 Browlash Ex Water Strong Liner (Forgot to take photo of the eyeliner. Sorry guys! Pic credits to Sasa.com)

Now here comes BCL’s best-selling waterproof eyeliner which is Browlash Ex Water Strong Liner. This eyeliner can last up to 24 hours without smudging. *thumbs up* To darken the line drawn using the gel liner, use the liquid eyeliner. It will make the eyes look bigger. 



 Browlash Ex Mascaras! 
One my favourite product from BCL is their mascara. To own long eyelashes, we need three steps using the Browlash Ex Mascaras. The first step is the Browlash Ex Volume Lash Fiber which creates the volume up to 200%. 

 Browlash Ex Volume Lash Fiber

This is then followed by Browlash Ex Lash Curler Express. This Lash Curler creates curler lashes without using eyelash curler! Brush the lashes from the roots and hold the brush for about 3 seconds at the edge of the lashes before brushing out. You will now have curled eyelashes on the spot! *teehee*



 Browlash Ex Lash Sculpture
Next step is the Browlash Ex Lash Sculpture which has a unique comb that can separate the eyelash as you brush along and at the same time it works miracle by extending the eyelash even longer (up to 130 % long). You can actually see the different in the lashes after applying these 3 mascaras. 

 You can see the difference in the eyelashes after the mascara application.

After that, Mr Tanabe finish up with the blusher and lip gloss to complete the Harajuku Girl look. Taadaa!!! 
Makemania Data Essence Rouge Gloss

Tsururi Ghassoul Paste

Another awesome invention product from BCL is their Tsururi Ghassoul Paste. This paste acts to remove clogged pores, grease leaving skin smooth, bright and beautiful. Ghassoul (Moroccan lava clay) and Andean rock salt, and charcoal absorbs dirt and grease from pores effectively and naturally and also contains 6 kinds of natural essential oils to create refreshing herbal floral scent.

The model posing with the pretty BCL balloons. Whee~

Here's a before and after makeup photo to see the difference. You can actually see the bigger eyes after the makeup and I achieved a longer lashes after the 3 mascaras application. (Sorry guys. I forgot to take the photos of the mascara application)

Yours truly. (:

On the other hand, I was very happy to meet up with all my blogger friends after so long. Finally I got to meet Jennifer since our Spa Party at TTDI back in June. Ahh~~ How much I miss her! (:

Photos taken with the bloggers (Jennifer, Chency, Carolyn, Michelle, Calista, Julie, Amelie and Kah Mon) and not forgetting the man in black, Don who gave me the exclusive invite to attend this BCL workshop. Thank you so much Don! (:

It was really my pleasure to attend this workshop as I got to know more friends and more Japanese makeup tips from this workshop. I gotta learn on how to be kawaii already! Lol!

Remember to like their Facebook page and put on hashtags #BCLMalaysia in Twitter or Instagram alright? (:
