[Review] bloop Toe Nail Strips ❤



Hi readers! Do you remember my previous review on bloop nail strip? To those who can't recall it, it's ok. You can check my review here: http://janiceyeap.blogspot.com/2013/12/review-bloop-nail-strip.html. From the previous post, I blogged about nail strip and this time I will blog about toe nail strip from bloop thanks to HiShop Malaysia. (:


Basically, instruction of nail strip and toe nail strip from bloop are the same. The only difference is that toe nail strip has different sizes of nail stickers to fit your toes compared to the nail strip. 


Tips on how to apply the nail strip
1. Make sure nails are clean before using the nail strip.
2. Choose the best strip size for each nail
3. Remove the transparent protective layer
4. Align and place the nail strip on to the nail. (Note: The rounded ends should be facing the cuticle)
5. Rub strip over the nail starting from the center working it out toward the sides
6. Press the excess nail strip across the edges of the finger nail

 Press the excess nail strip across the edges of the finger nail.

7. Using a nail file, file off the excess strip in a downward motion
8. Rub striped nails again to move any excess bubbles.
9. For a longer lasting wear, apply a layer of top coat nail polish.


This nail strip is super thin and the design on the nail strip looks realistic on the nail. This allows air to penetrate through nails.


Review
I love this nail strip because it is fast and easy to use by just peeling off the sticker from the film. Another advantage is that there's no drying time which you don't have to worry that the sticker is ruined and this nail strip can last about 5 - 7 days. (: The colour is so bright and pretty too. Just the right time for CNY! *wide grin*

Bloop Nail It Strip comes in 3 packs with 3 different designs at the price of RM38.00 in HiShop webpage. (: That's not all, my readers will get an exclusive RM20 rebate with minimum purchase of RM99. Type BLOOPNAILS and this promotion is valid till 31st January 2014. Go and grab now since they are having such awesome promotion! (: Remember to like BLOOP on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bloopinc

 Smileys on my ugly toes. At least, this brightens up my day while I am working in Manila. (:

[Review] Cerro Qreen Professional Brush Set Makeup ❤



I always look forward to receive surprises and I am glad to receive a box of pretty cute design from Natta Cosme the other day. I love how they decorate the box. The box comes with a pretty coloured message card from Natta Cosme and a small box which is a piece of Ferrero Rocher chocolate. It's so sweet and thoughtful of them to reward us. Thank you Natta Cosme! *bow* 


Thanks to Natta Cosme that I am able to try Cerro Qreen Natural Pony Wool Professional Brush Set Makeup in Yellow. We have all heard that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". But when it comes to makeup, beauty is also in the hands of whoever is holding the best makeup brushes. If you're a new makeup user or an expert, you know that using the proper makeup brushes can make a huge difference when it comes to application and blending. Brushes are not one-size-fits-all, with different brushes being better suited to different techniques or types of product.

Beauty junkies like me love to own more than one makeup brush set and I love this makeup brush set from Cerro Qreen which comes with yellow cosmetic case.


Cerro Qreen, based in the United States, has been considerately producing professional makeup brushes with countless varieties dedicated to prettify your makeup. This Cerro Qreen are made out from natural fur from the pony and comes with 6 pieces of makeup brush. This set of makeup brushes is very useful as it focuses on makeup on the eyes with the powder brush or blush brush as the main brush. I can conveniently complete my daily makeup with only one set of these brushes. 


For beginners in makeup like me, you only need the basic makeup brushes like this Cerro Qreen Makeup Brush Set in Yellow. (: The choice of natural fur from the pony makes it more comfortable and easier for the makeup brush to hold the makeup powder. Moreover, the cosmetic case is made from high quality polyurethane which provides better sensation. With strap, it allows you to easily grab the brush you desire and makes it more convenient for you to bring the case outside.


 Powder Brush - Can be used as powder and blush brush.
Eyeshadow Brushes -  Allows for blending and techniques
Smokey Eyeshadow Brush - Can be used to create smokey eye effect on the eyes
Eyebrow Brush - Can be used to fill in eyebrows or precise blending of brow pencils for a natural look.


Powder Brush

This Cerro Qreen Powder Brush is multi-purpose, working well with powder and blush. It works well for blending, especially if I am trying to contour.


Eyeshadow Brush (Big)

The eyeshadow brush has a rounded shape and wide enough to cover half of your eye lid when applying your eyeshadow, which allows for blending and techniques. This Cerro Qreen Professional Makeup Brush comes with three sizes of these eyeshadow brushes - Big, Small and Medium.

Eyeshadow Brush (Medium)



Eyeshadow Brush (Small)




Smokey Eyeshadow Brush 

This smokey eyeshadow brush is used to create smokey eye effect. The soft bristle does not hurt my eyelids and easy to apply with one application.


Eyebrow Brush

The eyebrow brush has a straight end and it helps to get a sharp contour for your eyebrows and tame any wild eyebrow hairs.


Review
The brushes from Cerro Qreen are very soft and they do not shed at all. The handles are fairly short and the brushes are quite light. I love how the Cerro Qreen is made from natural pony wool. Brushes that have natural hair bristles are fantastic for use with powder products, as they are the softest and fluffiest. The bristles of the brushes hold the powdered pigment until I place it on the desired area of my face. I always go for natural look and definitely this is one of the best basic makeup brushes I ever had. (:

Other than that, each of these brushes picks up the exact amount of product that I want and help me to apply it smoothly. They are also easy to wash and long-lasting. Even if you are a beginner in the makeup world, this Cerro Qreen Professional Brush Set ensures you a professional finish and effortless application.

There are many types and brands of makeup brushes on the market that it can be very difficult to choose the best one for your makeup needs. Many people think that the key to good makeup only depends on the quality of the makeup, when in reality, there are two other factors - the quality of your brush and your makeup experience.


Ratings: 4.5 / 5

Cerro Qreen Professional Brush Set is having promotion at Natta Cosme website which is only at RM29.52 for 6 pieces (original price at RM36.90) and guess what?? They have various colours to choose from to suit individuals' likings. *yay* So why not grab now as these brushes are really good for beginners use and expert use as well as it can be carried everywhere for traveling purpose!

Honeypot Hollywood Glam Party ❤

It was my pleasure to be invited by Honeypot and thank you JQ for tagging me along. Honeypot hosted a small party for the bloggers to experience their waxing service and also a makeover too. *excited* 


Honeypot offers Brazilian and body waxing. When it comes to the sweet spot, Honeypot is all about maintaining the best standards of hygiene. Our professionally trained Honeypot kitties use only their special-in-house wax that has been brewed by Australian chemists, to give the perfect wax job.

There are many types of Brazilian Wax that they offer and they have cute names to describe the type of Brazilian waxing.

Basic Bikini (RM32)
This is the most conservative form of the Brazilian wax. Fuzz is neatly trimmed and the small sides of the bikini line are waxed.

The In Between (RM65)
This is a step up from the basic bikini. The sides of the pubic triangle are waxed, leaving a trimmed medium strip at the front. 
The Butterfly (RM75)
The fuzz is neatly trimmed at the front. The Butterfly will only have the labia and butt cleavage waxed.

Hollywood (RM108)
Sexy with a capital S, this will see all of the front, labia and butt cleavage waxed. 

Playboy (RM120) 
The whole front, labia and butt cleavage are waxed leaving a thin landing strip shaped like and inverted triangle at the front.

L'Amour (RM125) 
Love cannot be any more discreet than our L'Amour. The whole front, labia and butt cleavage are waxed leaving behind a heart at the front.
Alongside the Brazilian, Honeypot also specializes in waxing other areas of the body. Using only hot in-house wax, their Honeypot kitties will also exercise tender loving care when tending to these other areas such as underarms, half arms, full arms, nipple, chest, shoulders, back, stomach, top half legs, full legs, upper / lower lip, chin, jaw line, forehead, cheeks, brows and full face.  

I experienced the half legs waxing that day. Honeypot kitty was so kind and ensure that the waxing was done in a tender and loving care. I love their room too. It was so pinky and lovely.


This is my first time experiencing waxing in a boutique, so it feels like doing facial in a private room. I was told to remove my pants because I want to do waxing on my bottom legs.


My legs were having bad rashes and mosquito bites. So I was worried that the waxing might hurt the rashes on my legs. I informed Honeypot kitty about the rashes and she mentioned that the waxing will not affect the rashes. She was right. The hot waxing did not hurt the wound or rashes on my skin. 



Does anyone know why we wax? Here's a few reasons why: 
1. Waxing removes all of your hair for longer 
2. It doesn't irritate your skin as much 
3. It leaves your skin feeling smoother 
4. Over time, waxing can reduce hair growth 
5. If done correctly, it will result in fewer in-grown hairs, which means it's not itchy
6. No razor bumps, razor rashes, cuts or infections which you get with shaving 
7. Waxing is more hygienic and makes you feel fab over and under your skirt! 

After the waxing, I had a Marilyn Monroe inspired makeover by Temptu Malaysia. Temptu Malaysia are specialized in airbrush makeup system. This was my first time experiencing a makeover using airbrush system.

Temptu airbrush makeup can achieve the most natural-looking, flawless finish using their patented technology and pro-based formula. Their renowned formula mimics the appearance of skin for the most natural-looking, flawless complexion. With the airbrush makeup, it is buildable, sheer to full coverage, plus the ability to cover blemishes or hide imperfections in an instant. Other than that, we can also achieve professional results and precision makeup application in minutes.  Check out Temptu Malaysia facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/?q=#/temptu.malaysia?ref=ts&fref=ts.

This was my first time wearing fake eyelashes too. I love how the eyelashes defined my eyes. I think I will start wearing fake eyelashes to events and parties in future.

Here's the look after using airbrush. (: 


Here's the final of Marilyn Monroe look with the red lipstick and the fake mole on my cheek.

Here's the look you can achieve using Temptu airbrush makeup system.

Tea Chansii was kind enough to sponsor us the food and drinks for the bloggers. Thank you Tea Chansii!! (:


Here's some of the photos taken during the event. Enjoyed meeting new friends in the event. Seriously I enjoyed a lot especially in the events because I was too bored in Manila. Imagine I only sat at home on weekends in Manila besides working in site. I can't even go out and party on Friday night. So pathetic! =(

At least when I am in KL, I can spend more quality time with my siblings, family and friends unlike here.

Meet my new friend, Amelea and yours truly. (:


Li Chuen and I. (:

JQ and I. Thank you for the invitation. (:

Meet my new friend, Sui Ying and I. Happy to see you! (:

Last but not least, a group photo of us. Thank you everyone for the opportunity! (:

[Review] Mary Quant Action Lashings Lengthening Mascara ❤

Holla readers! HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014! How's your new year going on so far? Today I would like to do a review on Mary Quant's product which is Action Lashings Lengthening Mascara and this will be my first post and review of the year! *yay* Thank you Manoah for the mascara! ❤

 Mary Quant Action Lashings Lengthening Mascara (:

I am huge fan of mascara as I have short lashes and at the same time I don't really like to wear fake eyelashes. (:
 

 

Have I told you that Mary Quant Action Lashings Lengthening Mascara offers 8 different colours from Ebony Black, Ivy Green, Barbwire Grey, Laurel Green, Bohemian Purple, Lac Rose and Brighton Blue (the one I am going to review today).


This mascara packaging is quite handy and easy to be carried in small clutch. It's easy to grip with just few fingers too as if you are holding a pencil. (:


Mary Quant Action Lashings Lengthening Mascara features two-sided coil and chip brush, which features the short bristles on one side and the oil gel formula gives the mascara its elasticity, together create the sharp, spectacularly long lashes. With 'anti colour-fading' effect and 'waterproofing effects', they enable the maintenance of beautifully upward-curling lashes and thoroughly preventing smudging on the eyelid.

 Two-sided chip and coil brush on the mascara.

This is the first time I tried blue colour mascara because coloured mascara normally doesn't look obvious on my lashes. However this blue colour mascara works well on my dark-coloured lashes. (:


I can finally found a perfect mascara to blend well with my party look! Will use this mascara especially when I go to parties with friends. *teehee*


You can actually see the difference of the mascara application on my eyelashes. My lashes became longer after the application and the colour on the lashes are quite obvious on the lashes too. 


This mascara costs RM109 and you get to pick the colours you like to suit your look. (: It is available now at Muse by Watson. Try it yourself and I am sure you will love it! For more info on the product, click here.


To those who had never heard of Mary Quant, you may read here about the workshop which I had attended with a bunch of bloggers last year too. And I am fortunate enough to review this mascara special thanks to Manoah. Thank you Manoah! :D


P.s: Happy New Year 2014 everyone!
