A:CONCEPT - All in One Brightening a Cushion

9:53 PM 0
Today review on a set of cushion I received it from Althea.kr ; A:CONCEPT All in One Brightening A Cushion. A:CONCEPT is a trendy and innovative cosmetics brand, their product are all stylist, compact. with creative packaging, functional and compact.

I actually bought one just to tired it but till now I haven even open it. And now I get another one A:CONCEPT black box set really much thanks to Althea. 
This is how it look like, what come together is ;
  1. Full size Cushion #23
  2. Red Lipstick
  3. Coral lip & cheek
  4. Cushion refill #23
If you plan to buy this set, really sorry but I checked on their website, seen like it is no longer on stock but if you wanna check out on A:CONCEPT products you can still go to Althea.kr.

Let get into the details; box opened and this is how it look like.

The color of shade 23# is matched my skin tone but I normally get 21# slightly lighter than my own color cause after applying all other cosmetic it actually blend into my color. But there's once I go on obstacle run and exposed under hot sun hours and got tanned shade 21# is not so suitable.

The texture is fine and easy to blend out, but coverage is just normal. If rate from 5 as very very good then this probably a 1 half, it doesn’t really cover much maybe minor spot yes but not for scars. It have a powdery scent and not sticky at all, it suit for whoever going for natural looking makeup. It do help a bit on balancing uneven tone.
Before applying
After applying ; I try layers of application but it only fade out the color a bit but if you notice it actually cover up the smear area.
As for the lipstick & lip and cheek stick; easy apply with 1 stroke it quite pigmented and not oily or greasy type nor matte type. It is more likely a crayon/cream kind of lipstick.

The red is not really bright red but more on natural one and for the coral color if it is for me I feel too nude it might make me look like Nicky Minaj lip. But for cheek as blush yes it is really natura as I normally use Coral blush, natural and not too much just right. 
The packaging for cushion is very plastic and light, compare to many others brand of cushion consider average not premium but the concept is there; light and easy to bring anywhere. You can bring both cushion and the lipstick out because they are attachable and removable. Really a travel friendly items;

Plug in the lipstick to the hole beside, when you open the cover it will roll out and if you close, it will roll back in. 
And that’s all for today. Although you might not able to get the cushion now probably Althea gonna bring in other news A:CONCEPT products. So stay close to Althea and be surprised by new and cool k-cosmetic.
Bye and good night

Where to do My Nails

1:41 AM 0
It is a must to get your nails done before CNY and 1 month before Chinese New Year. I used to think where to do my nails and how much it is and what design and what color.

My nails are very fragile especially after gel manicure it will sure broke after 2weeks max. My nails just too thin or I’m just too careless, anyway getting pretty nails still a must and I like doing my nails cause it is the same as going facial.
This year I decided to go Enchanted Siblings; I tried out quite a lot of different nails saloon like almost every year or every time I wanted to do my nails I go to new place because they didn’t have what I really want either service not good or outcome just not that good.

Enchanted Siblings are quite famous in their industry, You will be asking why didn’t I go straight to Enchanted Siblings but keep hoping to different salon. It because I’m cheapskate want to pay less for more thing. 
Why I choose Enchanted Siblings

1. Their service is really good; I went for my first trial after their 2nd anniversary, accompany by my bf. Normally the manicurist will not layan (care/service) the bf/hubby and will just let them sit at the waiting area. I’m serious some don’t even have waiting area; damn pity for the guys. hahaha but ES staff is really friendly they prepare a chair for my bf to sit next to me and even service him tea. The manicurist not only interact with me but also talk to my bf, really friendly.
2. I don’t have to worries what to do what color or how and how. Just reach there earlier and choose from the chart and yes they have a chart where you can see almost all color all design or you can just go to their IG can have a quick look before going. Most importantly they will recommend and giving a lot of suggestion. Even tiny stone they are really careful in choose will it not match your color. And many manicurist don’t really give opinion they just do whatever u want even it is not nice or not suit you they just do it. #reallyhateit
3. Their workmanship is really really really good, so far the best I had did before. I always go for stone design and I tried once the dumb stone scratch my shirt and it is my favorite top!! Dammit. I even try before somewhere in Puchong Puteri nearby Old Town (not gonna mention name), my stone drop after 3days! Yes 3days and my sis wedding nails cracked after 1weeks. When I text them to redo for us it took them forever to reply and even after redo the stone still came off after 1weeks. 

And it last up to 2months which stone came off or crack. The surface is smooth and the crystal are really shine for the whole 2months. Impressive
4. The price is all stated out clearly all you need to choose and pay. And if you intro your friend over you will get free services. 
After pros there’s always cons, nothing is perfect.

1. Really hard to get a parking, in refering Sri Petaling branch. Because I cheapskate I don’t wanna payfor my parking but anyhow after 2-3rounds I will still go to parking area. LOL

2. Like I said I’m cheapskate, their price are slightly high compare to other place I been but what you pay what you get. That’s why I’m back to ES and not other places.

3. Peak season cannot do both mani and pedi on the same day and very hard to get a good slot. Anyway their CNY appointment started, if you wanna do Nails be quick before full slot. They have T&C once you confirm appointment they will send you the T&C.

And that’s for today, trust me it is really a good place to get your nails done no regret. Do refer you friend over to get fre services, you can put me as your referrer I won’t mind to get a free services. Hahahah

They have 2 branches 1 at Sri Petaling another at Publika.

Do call before you go over to prevent disappointment.

2018 Resolution

10:06 AM 0
Morning everyone, it is a cold rainy day better wear more clothes.

Let have a short 2018 resolution before I restart my blog; Due to I’m still haven get a laptop for myself, I was plan to get 1 before CNY but then I think of million of thought should I or shouldn’t I get a new laptop. *sharing laptop with bf but wasn’t use with apple*

1. Write more (Blogging)

If you realize my blog layout have been changed, thanks to MyButterflyProject for the make over and it used to be like this. 
I ask myself why should I get and what is the purpose of getting laptop, 1st thought is because I need decent laptop which allow me to start over my blogging *fyi writing is my hobby not my job, I don’t earn from blogging* 2nd thought is to us Adobe, somehow I’m used to be designer and my family or friends will still ask for help in designing or giving me part time project but I was unable to accept the offer.

But if for blogging I can actually blog with my phone, although it is not very very convenient like laptop but for short and fast blogging yes it still does the work. But designing for job still I can’t help it but if editing for blog post some phone apps still can help. And when I’m at work I will be facing computer whole day so when I get home I won’t on my laptop/computer *if I have 1* i will rather using my phone since I can do almost anything with it. Movie, Facebook, online shopping, reading and blogging so why do I still need laptop. 

So conclusion is I will not getting a laptop for now but but I’m gonna get a iPad mini, which is lighter and easy to carry around and function almost the same as computer.

And I will be focusing more on cosmetic review, at least something I like but I’m not good at it. My make up I just put everything one to my face and I just like to buy cosmetic but not using them. Hahahhaa

2. Back on Track (Diet)
If you know me; I used to be very active in marathon and gym almost everyday plus hiking almost every weekend. But still not thin but consider healthy and fit with a bit of fat. Recent been slacking, I think I’m aging; The old I am the lazier I am.

So wanna go back to marathon, gym and hiking. Most important cutting down size with the help of my bf and my personal trainer of course. Which I have to take care of my diet within 1300 calories per day and I don’t think I can make it for 3months. 

3. Spend like Crazy (Earn & Saving)
I have been working until current company for 7-8months and everything is good at least my income is way better than the previous one. Both sales but different field but better income. It is enough to support my car and support my overspending life but still not enough, my plan is to get a house before 30 if I can.

4. Punch my Teeth (Bracelet)

Can’t find any picture with my mouth open!! Lol

Yes!! I’m finally going to face the dentist for bracing my ugly crooked teeth which everyone thought it is tiger tooth but nope.

I’m dumb enough to reject all the offer from my school to give me free bracelet when I’m young, just because I’m scare they pluck my teeth and now damn regret and I have to pay all the bill by myself.

I plan to get it right after my birthday which is May and hopefully it can be done within 1.5years but I know it will not be as expected. Also lesser the pain and torture. By the way, I haven really decide which dentist or any better recommend? I was planning to go for 32T Dental Dr Neoh in Puchong; I saw many good review about him, I even ask my new dentist friend he said Dr Neoh is a very good dentist. 

So if no recommendation I will just go there.

5. Turn my Face Around (Whitening)
I’m the darkest, sad. 

This is almost impossible, I been tan since kindergarten? Probably since I know who I am and I had never really complain about my tan skin till now I still don’t but I really wanna know can I be fairer, maybe 20% fairer I will be satisfy.

I don’t born to tan skin, it was all because when I’m young I like to run around outdoor and in school age I’m active in outdoor sport like track run, basketball, volleyball & and other balls balls sport plus I’m in 24season drum and we always perform under hot sun *damn torturing*, till I’m out of school I’m still actively with outdoor sport and I don’t really take care my skin like normal ladies do.

So the tan actually layering for few years and somehow it become permanently my skin tone. Then I’m not typical women who do scrub or put toner, serum, moisture, night mask, lips mask and etc etc which idk what they put la ha.

All I do for my skin routine is I wash my face with cleanser once at least, if I feel uncomfortable I will just wipe my face with baby wipes or wash with plain water, but if too oily or I feel very dirty I will wash with cleanser. Then toner and aloe vera, mask and lip mask is like once in a full moon. Then I go facial every month for extraction. I don’t event put on make up or sunscreen when I go work, I know many girls will be like “huh! You don’t sun block your face!!” Ya I don’t cause I’m lazy and I will keep washing my face and wipe my wash with baby wipes you know. And I’m LAZY.

So I will be a little more hardworking this year. 

Getting a tattoo
This is one of the tatt I hoping to get. 
I always wanted to get a tattoo but my family is very traditional kind of family. For them dying hair is bad, swearing even while joking kind of sweat is bad, smoking is bad & tattoo is bad. I still remember when I first dye my hair to brown gold on CNY me and my dad didn’t talk for 2 days. 

Anyway, I’m almost 30 I think I have the right to do what I want. And I definitely going to get 1 or maybe 2 or maybe addicted idk. 

Okay here the end of  resolution, but I know it will not all happen but at least 1 or 2 might just happen la.

Hair Scalp Treatment @ 90's Hairstyle

6:00 PM 0
(Photo from 90's Hairstyle)
As a lady with long hair, I only go salon for twice or three to trim my hair but once awhile will go for a pampering. This time when to 90's hairstyle to try out their hair scalp treatment.

The salon was white and comfy, but located in Sri Petaling might hard to get a slot but they have reserved slot right in front of their salon if you're lucky. Once seated, they will asked what do you want to drink. They are quite careful and good service, the drinks they provide come with a cover preventing hair fall into it and giving me a blanket as Im wearing short.

I was served by the Handsome Juno and after he explaining how the progress and what will be done, starting with the scalp scanning and this is the picture of before.

Sorry it might digust you, my scalp is oily and slightly sensitive. You can notice that the pore/the end of the hair (where your hair grown) is all stuck with dirt and the shine is oil on my scalp.

So the treatment after the scanning the consultation, started with the pore smoothening. Juno use this small bottle of toxins from Craft to roll on my scalp and used 2 bottle of it.

(fyi the product treatment use only Craft brand hair products)
The rolling is really comfortable and cooling.


It will turn into beige color after rolling on, it is my scalp oil. Left is the 1st bottle & right is 2nd bottle.

Then It will be Nano Mist, 3 times Shampoo, Message & some protect for the scalp. (More info do PM 90's Hairstyle)

Nano mist(Korea Technology) by this machine.

After all the treatment we scanned again to see the result and the result is the pore is cleaner, the oil is clear;

Althea Petal Velvet Powder (Review)

10:19 PM 0
I guess most of the big fans of Korean makeup heard of or loyal customer of Althea.kr, Althea not only providing/importing many Korea cosmetics & skincare. They even have their own products, recently they just launched a new product and here am I to review a bit about the product.


It is a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves silky finish to the touch. It was made from pure & natural ingredient, it have a mild scent of flower and very fine, light & smooth powder.

The powder come with a 13mm thick & fluffy puff, the size of the powder is a bit too small and the puff itself is quite small but it is really soft and fluffy.

It main ingredient is Althea flower and it have many benefits ; 
  • Hydrating : One of the most resilient flower, full of natural antioxidants that protect the skin from dehydration by increasing moisture levels.
  • Sun Protection : Polyphenols helps to protect the skin from adverse effects caused by sun exposure & ultraviolet radiation.
  • Anti-Ageing : Saponarin helps to repair damaged skin cells & restores elasticity to prematurely aging skin.
The Althea powder can help to minimize our pores & fine lines to reveal a flawless, petal-like, complexion skin.It also create a satin finish that mattifies without dehydrating the skin. It also help serum control, excellent oil-absorbing properties.

The powder texture is really fine and smooth to blend on skin, it wont leave a caking finish. Although the powder is white colour but it wont make my skin overly white or fairer than my natural tone.

I used it on to set my makeup and also apply on naked face and it feel like nothing, it is very very light. Really hard to explain how the texture like, the first dip/swatch it feel like flour but when you start blending it actually blend on my skin very well and it wont feel like powdery but feel like nothing on.

Pros :
  • Really fine & smooth.
  • The puff is really fluffy.
  • Affordable price or should I say the cheapest setting powder.
Cons :
  • A bit too small.
  • Quite messy while apply or maybe Im clumsy.
