LOTD–H&M Smokey Palette (purple)

I am now in my quarantine days from wearing makeup or foundation on my face. Even eye makeup. I just feel like wearing fake lashes and a little dab of eye liner and BAM that’s it. Simplicity is the best right now for me. But yesterday, I played around with my new Maybelling FIT foundation and Anti-Aging Foundation which I received from Irfan’s mother, she bought them in Australia.

So, I made up a little test to myself on the foundation that I personally picked out through online. It’s so hard to pick out the same exact shade of foundation just from your computer screen but I made it! Perfectly! Haha. After I applied the foundation, I thought why not I just do a full face makeup instead using my H&M Smokey Purple palette which I have not used that much. So, this is what I came up with.

hm gif

Sorry for the creepy GIF picture there. Haha. Well, that’s what I am trying to let you all see. But, the lighting is so low so that is why the quality of the picture is not that good. Sorry girls. But, if you want me to do a tutorial on this look, I can do a simple one using instagram video. Cause it only takes me two brushes to do this look. One is for the application of the eye shadow and the other one is a blending brush. Blending is a MUST for this look.

Let me know if you want me to do a tutorial on this palette! :) I’d be happy to do one for all!

Food Porn–Chicken Parmigiana

Yes! I am talking food today! I am not a  good eater but I still eat foods! Haha. Well, I am quite a choosy person when it comes to food. I hate onions and frozen mixed vege, I cant eat seafood especially prawns, so I can be quite a boring food eater. The only thing that I can eat everyday is potato. Yes. Imma potato lover!

Recently, I found out about this meal when I was at Kulcats. Yes. Kulcats are ony of my favorite dine in restaurant. I know the price can be quite pricey but all of the foods are delicious (at least so far from my ordered are yummy!) and the drinks are just so good! My first time going to Kulcats, I ordered their Chicken Parmigiana and then I fall in love with this meal.

Why do I love this meal so much?

Well, it’s very easy to eat! I love western food because it is very easy to eat, it does not have anything that I hate and you can see each and every single meal in your plate. No hidden gems or what so ever. Haha.

So, last Friday,I went to Secret Recipe for my lunch and to my surprise they now have Chicken Parmigiana as well! So I ordered straight away!

010 edit

Just take a look at those yummy cheese and the chicken breast and those potatoes. It’s like my whole favorite food in one plate!

Feeling hungry already? So to Kulcats / Secret Recipe today to get this yummy dish! :)

BOTD–ELF Beauty-On-The-Go-Single Palette (No.2)

DSC09373 edit

Hello beauty lovers! Well well well, I have been keeping this palette for quite some time. Since I have a lot of eye shadow palettes to be played with, I just realize that I have this ELF palette to test out as well. I did tried this palette once and then I just could not seems to like it so I just put it aside. Well, if I don’t like it does not mean that I wont be putting up inside my blog.

Well, it’s not I hate the entire palette. There are some of the best eye shadow colors inside this palette that I could play around with and the blusher is just so pigmented. The thing that I don’t like is the eye shadow is kind of chalky and it has that powder smell. Even the blusher has that powder smell which I really really hate. Well, that is the price you pay if you want cheap products but quality ones.

DSC09374 edit

This palette consists of 10 eye shadows, 2 lip glosses, and a blusher.

DSC09375 edit

The swatches are not that bad. For white color eye shadows and the grey ones. These are the swatches for all the 10 eye shadows without any primers on. It has such a great everyday color or even if you want to do some grey smokey shadow.

DSC09378 edit

The swatches of the lip gloss. Why do I call these lip glosses? It is just not the right feelings for a lip stick. It is more towards stickiness and is not that pigmented for a lipstick.

DSC09379 edit

Like I said, the blusher are the most pigmented in this palette. It does not look powdery at all! This blusher is mainly suitable for people with darker skin but the eye shadow palette is so not for darker skin color tone. Too bad. The blusher is very easy to blend as well. I am very impressed with the blusher than the rest of the products in the palette

Well, these are just my own opinion and thoughts. If you really want to try these palettes all by yourself, you can contact beautistuffs and  they will let you know the availability of other colors available. Yes, this palette does not only have this one kind, they have a lot of other color scheme as well. So, drop them a comment today! :)

BOTD : Pati Ibu Putih

Salam and Hello everybody!

I have a lot of people asking me what is my everyday facial routine. Well, since I am a constant user or Tabita products now, I don’t really have other routine for facial as I only use tabita cleanser, Neutrogena toner and tabita creams (day / night). Apart from that, I am also a user of Pati Ibu Putih starting since last week. Well, I know I just could not see any difference yet in one week but let me share this with you, it does show difference! The result is very fast! If you have been using Tabita for a while, you can see the differences in just three days! Yes. It’s a guarantee!

Apart from Pati Ibu Putih, I am also now a constant drinker or Kinohimitsu J’pan Beauty Drink as well. Since I received the 6 bottles drink from the Kinohimitsu Luau Party, I drank all six of them and can totally feel the differences it does on my skin especially on the face! If you could remember, I do have a slightly eczema on my inner corner of my eyes, after using Pati Ibu Putih and drink Kinohimitsu collagen drink, the eczema slowly goes away and now, it’s like totally GONE!


So, these are the two Pati Ibu Putih that I am currently using. Actually the Strawberry flavored ones I just started using them yesterday. The differences between the two Pati Ibu is one for body and face and only for night usage which is the original ones, and the other one is for day usage and only for face which is for the Strawberry flavored.

If you are interested in trying these two incredible creams, you can get it here : https://www.facebook.com/tabitakl?fref=ts

BOTD–Hello Kitty 3 Piece Brush Set

You all know how much I LOVE my Hello Kitty stuffs. Well, if you just got to know me, I am actually crazy about Hello Kitty! well, age is not a factor to me! I have been loving this Japanese made Kitty since I was little. My mum made me go to One Utama for their merchandise selling month every year! If you are as crazy as me and live near by here, you would know that that time existed. Yes. It’s like a Sanrio bazaar kind of thing. That was when even before the new wing was being build. That old. I still can remember seeing Badtz Maru and Kerokerokeroppi merchandise as well! :)

So, I just could not resist form NOT buying these brushes!

037 edit

I purchased these from Beautistuffs, a new makeup parlour pre order kind of thing. Yes. It is actually my own makeup shop. ;) It did costs me a fortune to get this but it was so totally worth it. If you LOVE Hello Kitty just like I do and are willing to actually pay for the shipping all the way from USA, you can contact me at Beautistuffs Page and we can discuss more on that. So far, these babies has been SOLD OUT! :(

Well, let’s talk about the brushes shall we?

038 edit

Inside the lovely box, lay 3 brushes mainly for eye makeup. One if the eye shadow brush, one for blending and one is the straight cut eyeliner or eye shadow brush. Yes. Only 3. The brushes are in pink and white color (additional bonus to who ever loves PINK!) and it is seriously SOFT! I am not sure though what are the bristles made of. T_T I think it’s synthetic.

039 edit

Lets take a closer look on the picture above. All three brushes are just nicely packed in a very hard to put back plastics. Yes, once you open those plastics out, you’ll take at least 5 mins to get it back. I just have to do it cause I do not want to ruin my lovely pink bristles. :)

040 edit

Kitty head! Yes, on top of the brushes are these lovely and shining Hello Kitty head! Apparently, these brushes are not made of plastics. I know it looks so heavy here but it is actually not! I am not quite sure as well what material did they use to make the whole brush but I tell you, it’s so lightweight!

Well, I am pretty sure that Sephora does not have these brushes any more now. Maybe they will restock them soon! And if they did, I will post out inside Beautistuffs facebook page! :)

My beauty resolution for 2014!

Oh my God! I just could not believe that it’s now nearly 2014! 2013 had been a great year for me and my beauty product range and now 2014, I have already set up some goals for my beauty collections!

My 2014 Beauty Resolutions

1. My beauty regime now is not all au natural and most of them has chemicals in it. This is not good especially for my face skin. In 2014, I would like to test out and use some natural ingredients onto my beauty care regime. It’s something that I am moving forward to use and I just cannot wait to see the end result of it from using all natural ingredients!

2. Less heavy makeup. Yes. I will try to do this. Hopefully. Fingers crossed. Haha. Well, I love wearing makeup. It makes to boost up my confidence but in 2014, I have aimed to wear less heavy makeup to keep my skin looks healthier and glow.

3. I am also looking for a gentle skin care products that could make my skin not feel irritated after using them. I do have some sensitive skin especially on my forehead and a zit could just pop out of nowhere up there.

4. Eating and drink healthily. I don’t really drink soft drinks that much and I love green tea so pretty much solved. The eating habit is quite hard. I eat in a very small potion but very regularly. That is just because I have gastric and I need to follow that kind of eating regime. I seldom eat chocolate but I think I have to tone down on the ‘unlimited cake per month’ thingy. Haha. I LOVE cakes like no body business! Haha

5. in 2014, I would also want to take time in taking care of my skin. I know I have always neglected this part. Yes, I wipe off all that makeup before I went to sleep. IT IS A MUST FOR ME! But, when it comes to scrubbing, facial, spa and all sorts of things, I seldom do that. Because it is quite pricey. But, I believe that you can do that kind of thing at home! What how?

You don’t need to go to a facial every single time to get the best 100% natural ingredients in a product because…

YADAH has it!

It is natural, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic with botanical ingredients, organic and even suitable for all skin type! Be it sensitive or normal!

Now the Butterfly Project Malaysia is holding an event together with YADAH and I am really excited!


I just cant wait to see and experience myself with YADAH products! This event would be such an AWESOME day for me to start my 2014! Oh yes, did I mention I am getting married in 2014? So, I need a really really good skin care products to take care on my skin before my BIG day!

Well, it’s hard for me to say this but I am blessed. I feel blessed. I have such a great boyfriend. I am blessed to have such an understanding boyfriend. Although I am not an understanding girlfriend to him but I am blessed. I am blessed to have such GREAT friends in life now. All of them are the nicest! I could not ask for more. I just can’t.

Well, to be fair enough, 2013 was one of the greatest year in my life. I spend a lot. Went on Emirates Airline for the second time since 2010, together with my boyfriend, went to Barcelona (one of the things that I just could not believe did happened in the year 2013!), went on Airbus A380, have new friends and group. I am just loving it! 2013, is my year.

Also in 2013, I think my face skin has become better each day. First there was Tabita, then now Pati Ibu Putih & Kinohimitsu J’pan Collagen Drink. Nobody could ever imagine my life now without these three things. In 2013, I purchased so many damn makeup items. I was also the makeup artist for Shims Mandagie’s runaway yesterday and it was such a GREAT experience for me. I never thought I would become a makeup artist but hell yeah I am now! I can do it of course with the help of Shims. I could never forget her and her trust to me.

Everything nice happened in 2013. I am so blessed. Very very very blessed now. Loving each day. Thank you to all who has been part of my life now. Weather it is new, or old I thank you.

Just in for their XMas Edition, these cute boxes were being decorated with Christmas kind of look. Red box with snowy white ribbon. So cute! I know my pictures did not actually shows up a nice color here but I swear to you, this is simplicity and cute!

Lets dig in what is inside the box now!

Again, I love the personal touch that they have given to all of their customers! By handwriting down the customer’s name! This shows that they really do care for their paying customers and are not playing around with them. Nice!

Tech Kaiju Arena–Ninetology X1 VS Lenovo

004 edit

I was being approached by Eric from Ninetology to do a phone review. Later that I know, my email server has a little bit problem so I replied to him a little bit late. Then, when I was on my way to Singapore, Eric emailed me saying that they have slots for me to actually review their phones. I was bummed! Why lah why! So I replied back saying that I was on my way to Singapore and if he could hold onto the units until Monday, it’ll be great. So he did and I picked up my phone on Monday at Ninetology office, Glenmarie.

So, I was not going to talk about my experience getting the phone but my experience with the phone. I was given two different phones, one is from Ninetology which is the X1 and the other is from Lenovo which is the K900.

Oh yes, if you have not yet heard about Ninetology, Ninetology is actually an ASEAN made (Malaysia based) android phone with affordable price and you’d get something similar like Samsung and also other androids phones. It could be comparable to all the international phones out there. So let just see the comparison between Ninetology and also Lenovo phone here. Let see Ninetology phone first shall we?

DSC09314 edit

This is the box of the Ninetology X1. It is huge, made from hard cardbox and it’s white in color. I love the simplicity of the color choices. The box itself looks like a Japanese flag.

DSC09317 edit

When you slide out the top part, this is how the items inside it looks like. Simple and clean.

What you will be getting inside the box are;

- The Phone (of course!)

- The back cover of the phone (YES! Included!)

-The USB Cable (For data transfer / charging)

- The headphone

- Charger

Apart from all the accessories, you will also be getting a Start Guide and the most important thing, Warranty Card.

Lets just take a look at the phone shall we?

So that was for Ninetology X1. What a very mouthful specs and pictures! Let see what Lenovo can offer you!

DSC09329 edit

This is how Lenovo K900 box looks like. A little bit (okay..a lot!) smaller than Ninetology packaging. Very sleek and nice! Handy and but bulky at all. Black color, with the cut out of the phone’s model.

DSC09330 editDSC09331 edit

This is how they do their packaging. Phone on top and all the accessories are below the phone. Kind of reminds me about Apple packaging. Small, use all the space as possible and very nice. It was also made from a hard box material.

DSC09328 edit

Just comparing the two boxes, Lenovo is much more smaller!

Let see if Lenovo phone could outcome Ninetology!

What you will be getting inside this small box?

- The phone (Obviously! haha)

- The USB Cable

- Extra Headphone Pieces

- Headphone

- Charger

So, compared to Ninetology, Lenovo gives an extra headphone pieces and not a phone cover.

DSC09339 edit

Apart from all the accessories, also Lenovo has their Product guide and Quick Start Guide books as well. I am not sure about a Warranty Card but I believe they do have also a 1 year warranty.

Lenovo actually uses a Micro-Sim so it has this little sim card pusher pin (Similar to Apple) thingy.

Now we can take a look at the phone, shall we?

*Courtesy of Lenovo website*

If you do read all the specs and compare them, Lenovo has Intel inside and is only Dual Core compared to Quad Core to Ninetology. I could now actually detect the differences between the two. It goes all smoothly for me even on FIFA games.

The similarity would be the camera megapixel. Lenovo K900 has 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera and so does Ninetology X1. So let’s compare both of the camera shall we? We can see who is the winner!


camera 1


camera 2


camera 3


camera 4


camera 5

As far as the quality of the camera goes, I think Lenovo wins! I mean hey, they called their camera as a Super Camera and I do agree with it! But, one thing is that, Lenovo produce such a weird dimensional size of pictures. Since it has a wide screen, the vertical pictures are also wide. To me, Lenovo pictures has more sharpness and more crispier and more natural.


So who wins this time? Let just set the categories.

BEST PACKAGING – LENOVO (Small and practical)


ACCESSORIES – NINETOLOGY (I think phone cover costs much more money than some earphone pieces. Just my two cents)


USABILITY – NINETOLOGY (Being not an Android person [This was my first time playing with Android phones] I believe that Ninetology interface and animations are pretty much easier to use than Lenovo. Although both uses the same Android 4.2 Jellybean, I think Ninetology are much more easier and not messy)


APPS – LENOVO (I am not sure if this is actually from the operating system but, Lenovo has this one function that I could not find in Ninetology which is the Shake to Lock function. I LOVE that function so much!)

I could not determined the winner by just one option. As for me, a blogger, of course I would choose a phone with better picture quality and of course that would be Lenovo but if you are not a picture person and just would like to own a smartphone for the sake of playing Facebook, Twitter, Candy Crush and all I would totally go for Ninetology cause of the size and the stand by time. It depends on what you are looking for.

Lastly, I would like to thank Eric from Ninetology and also Ninetology for this opportunity for me to experience having two android phones to play with. Oh yes I forgot to mention the price for both of the phones. Well, NINETOLOGY RRP is RM1099 while LENOVO K900 RRP is RM1699. So now you do the judges. What are the criteria that you look for in a phone? :)
