Maybelline BB Compact Powder

I know this sounds weird, but Maybeline uses Maybelline products! Heh. I love Maybelline for their liquid eyeliner (which is now no longer available) and their mascara.

The next thing that impressed me is their Maybelline BB Wonder Smooth Compact Cream. Although the name says cream, but it is not as thick as what you had imagined.

If you’re worried that it might get cakey after a few hours, fret not. The creamy texture of the powder would melt into your skin and remain natural even after hours.

The benefits of using this BB compact includes, smoothening the pores, SPF25 protection against the sun and concealing the imperfections on the face. I was having period breakouts while trying out the powder and true enough, they were able to conceal some of the pimples without apply concealer.

It illuminates the skin and make my face look pore-less. You can jolly well skip all the primers! The matte finish also make the entire make up look natural. It contains Vitamin C and E so instead of clogging or damaging the skin, it cares for your skin as you apply.

So smooth that even the husky wanted to give me a kiss!

Go and have a try, it is definitely cheaper than the compact powder that you are currently using 🙂

It is available in two shades and retails for $19.90 each from June 2014 onwards at Watsons, Guardian, SaSa, selected departmental stores and major supermarkets island-wide.

You can have baby skin too!

Due to my constant juggle with events, school, family and friends, I rarely have the chance for a proper rest and this made me a victim of dark circles, eye bags and some other problems that will be discussed later.

Hence, I am on a mission to babify and save my skin with The SPA-Lon!

I could see visible results just from the first session! (Pictures as evidence. 100% without photoshop)

On my first session, I was consulted by the senior beautician, Irene, and was told that I have quite a few areas of concern.

1)Dull complexion (due to congested skin, not properly cleanse)
2)Dehydrated Cheeks (due to poor circulations)
3)Dead skin cells (on forehead, chin)
4)Laughing Lines (caused by sagging muscle)
5) Dark circles (caused by late nights)

You know, all along, I thought that the only problem was probably my dehydrated skin because I hate drinking water. I never knew I had so much problems. I guess they are not really visible or major like acne for me to notice and that is probably why I always thought that my skin is pretty good except a little dry.

We all know that with better complexion, comes higher confidence.
And with The SPA-Lon’s help, I can be confident! 🙂

To me, The SPA-Lon is a very comfortable, classy yet relaxing place.
No tension, no noise, just pure relaxation.

This was a corner of their toilet. You can choose to take a quick shower there before starting on the facial. Isn’t it always better to feel clean rather than lying down with a long day sticky body with a clean face post facial?

Before the lady began the whole treatment, she massaged my head, neck and shoulders a little to loosen me up. It was so comfortable that I almost fell asleep.

Cleansing the face.

After cleansing, I was quite afraid of the huge equipment beside me because I have low tolerance for pain. I was told that I would be doing Micro-peeling as one of the procedure and the word peeling hurt me a little. LOL.

In the end, the micro-peeling was probably lesser than an ant’s bite. PHEW.

Here is a picture of the before and after with Left being before and Right being after.

This picture is probably the best evidence for the visible results after 1 treatment. Can you see the glow on the post-treatment picture on the right?! :O

This is just the first session. So you can still see some flaws on the close up picture.

Another point is that my face was ultra smooth. Yes, super was an understand so I used ultra. Even the application of make ups were so smooth and easy for the next few days – a week. Irene also told me that the treatments should be done weekly (for I am not sure how long), to see more effect. So do look forward to my second entry on my second session 🙂

Let me give you more details on the treatments that I did that day:

5 treatments to address the 4 main problems that I have.

1) Dull complexion and Dead Skin Cells
Micro-Peeling Treatment – To cleanse the skin and exfoliated dead skin cells together with removing fine lines on the face with minimal discomfort. Pigmentation and dark spots are also reduced to brighten the skin.

Photo Rejuvenation Treatment – Combined with Micro Peeling Treatment so that you can’t see any post peeling redness. It also helps in increasing the collagen production and regulates melanin levels (for dark spots and pigmentation), resulting in more radiant skin.

2) Laughing Lines/ Aging
Radio Frequency Treatment – Provides an immediate tensor and lifting effect to the skin and has a filler effect to the wrinkles, combining all signs of aging. Sounds painful but nah, it is 100% un-invasive and pain free. It was like massaging my face and nothing else.

3) Dark Circles
Cryocooling Treatment – Done by a soothing, low temperature hand piece. Eye bags and dark circles were visibly reduced and the surface of the eye contour was smoothened. It was very cooollldddd but comfortable.

Eye-Lifting Treatment – The eye contour was lifted by electromagnetic waves as well as smoothening expression lines and crows feet.




You can compare the old photos in the other blog posts and those which I just took recently. Look at the face contour and glow! 🙂

of floral and make ups // marriage

I like floral prints. I think they actually make a girl look more demure 🙂

June is going to be an awesome month for me because I’ll be out of the university by the first week of June and I am going to be my one of my cousin’s sisters for her wedding in the second week.

Looking forward to the Hen’s night. This is my first time!

Lots of people around me are getting married/applying for flats. What kind of age group do you think is the most appropriate to be planning all these?

I am really not as young as I look but not of marriage age yet (to me. I don’t wanna be a young mom/wife or anything). I feel that both parties should be financially stable enough to afford a flat before talking about the remaining plans. Paying for the flat shouldn’t be a guy’s thing anymore given that the living expenses in Singapore is no longer the same as the past.

Anyway, my cousin isn’t really that young (not that old either). She’s a few years older than me and they have been dating since….. Can’t remember when, but at least 7-8 years already? I was just thinking about myself. I can’t imagine leaving my parents/dog. I think I would probably cry like shit LOL. And no, would never marry young unless financially stable enough.

Please bless me with better skin and slimmer body contour and jaw.

Let me introduce you to Elisha Coy Always Nuddy CC Cream WISHTrend sent me.

CC Cream is a bonus of BB Cream.
Skincare + Make Up = CC Cream!

When I first squeeze some out from the tube, I was quite surprised by the colour.
It’s white in colour instead of beige.

The more you apply, the better your skin looks and
there is no need for heavy foundation concealer or etc.

Don’t worry about your face being too oily after application.
They have conducted an oily test as well.

Look at the paper sprinkled and paper left on the hand. Are you convinced now?

(It is not sticky at all even during application)

Besides, I can leave house as early as 7.30am and reach home 14 hours later and the skin is merely mildly oily from my face’s own oil. And this was concluded after 2 weeks of application by yours truly.
Sometimes I leave home without foundation as well. That’s how convenient it is.

Here’s an example of my applying it on my hand.

 Non-sticky/greasy, absorbs well and light even though it’s cream based.

It blends in after some rubbing.

Elisha Coy Always Nuddy CC Cream has/gives:

– Sun protection SPF30PA++

How I keep my relationship going

I have learnt a lot from this relationship, or rather, this boyfriend.
We haven’t been together for exactly VERY long (only a year plus).

I had my high and low in this relationship. I went from 48kg to 42kg and back to 44kg (now)

HAHAHAHA. I don’t mean the fluctuation of my weight actually.

We had huge quarrels and our fair share of difficult times although we are not exactly together for a decade yet.

Through these downs, we have both learnt to be more understanding and forgiving.
But the most important thing that I had learnt was to be less “sticky”.

I am not kidding, I was VERY sticky. I like to stick to my boyfriend during my free time.
And very often, he will find it annoying because he has his work to do as well.
(Including DOTA and his hobby, fishing :x)

Right now, we don’t really “control” each other much like we seldom ask each other where we are going, who we are with and etc. We would, however, respect each other by filling each other up when needed.

That boils down to “Trust”.

Trust me, this is the most important factor that keeps a relationship going 🙂

Love dies when trust dies.
