Lanafira is one of the online fashion boutiques that deserves eyes locked from us (the hardcore online shopper). As a mom, I usually will have problems shopping at physical shops alone as it is so time consuming and a little troublesome as my little Ayden […]
Sepsis. I just want to avoid that word like a plague right now. I have loved ones who is currently in war inside the ICU for exactly 49 days. Good days, bad days, back at point zero on the average. I just don’t know.. And […]
NYX lip lingerie has new shades now, though the shades are much similar to the previous, to me they still have place in my vanity box. As I age (like a fine wine), my selection of lip color has become wider. I am now appreciate darker and MLBB (my lips but better) colors which explain my choice of lip liquid this time.
What NYX lip lingerie claims:
Slip into something seductive with Lip Lingerie, our luxurious liquid lipstick with a plush, Matte finish. Available in the color-kissed hues you know and love—from cinnamon pink and chocolate brown, to warm mahogany red and classic nude beige—plus, 12 brand-new nudes! Each sultry shade will coat the curves of your lips with irresistibly creamy color.
How it looks when applied.
I know, most of you prolly have tried this and have your own opinion about it as lipstick will look different from one person to another due to skin tone. As an asian (women of color), we have different kind of brown. My cha (teh) has a very nice ratio of tea and milk, so most of the nude lipstick looks much darker on me. Therefore, I asked my maid to wear them on lips so your can see how the color fits perfectly on a much tanner person.
My opinion, the color does look nice on me and on the auntie but definitely its definition of nude only happens when it’s applied on the auntie’s lips. It looks more of an ashy mauve on my lips (not complaining) and made me look like Emily “the strange” most of the time. Layan.
P’s: It looks better if you have pink undertone. I am yellow undertone.
The texture is quite mousse-y and glides on smoothly. It has no scent which is an A plus to me, nor having any stingy strong smell. It stays on my lips as long as I’m not eating course meal and reapplying is easy. But the applicator is not the best and tend to get clumpy after few applications. The color is so pigmented and have minimal transfer but it leaves my lips dry afterwards.
I don’t know how to write this. The rave is possibly because of its affordable price and beautiful colors. Other than that, I can’t say this lipstick is my favorite. That drying effect on my lips is definitely a downside. The main function of lips is KISSABLE.
I once mentioned Dubuyo to one of my friends and the feedback was hilarious. That particular fellow told me not to ‘curse’ when talking about food! (If you know, you’ll know). It means some people are still not game to try restaurant they are not […]
Maobao washing machine cleaner is a no.1 best selling brand in Taiwan for its league but a very unfamiliar term to relate in Malaysia as we don’t have this technology yet to purchase in our supermarket. Recently, I have received a box of Maobao washing […]
Barbie Eyesland cosmetic contact lenses has been around for 5 years now and has made name through out our nation. This brand has been trusted and reviewed by many including celebrities, bloggers and their loyal customers. Such rave has made me very inquisitive about their products and has enticed my fingers to order them online!
The arrival of my three stooges.
I have received my parcel consist of 3 pairs of cosmetic contact lenses last week. They were packed in a very beautiful packaging and it was so thoughtful of the company to give contact lenses casing together with CANDIES! So sweet don’t you think?
Even better when they offer free postage to all their customers without minimum order. It means you get free postage even if you buy 1!
These babies come in a vial and were sealed to avoid contamination and to give security for the customers to use.
My personal experience of using Barbie Eyesland cosmetic contact lenses.
To tell you a little bit of my eyes condition, I am farsighted and my power is 375 (right eye) and 350 (left eye) and I have medium level astigmatism and by rights, I need to order special lens for my astigmatism condition. But I find it okay to wear spherical lenses for up to 4 hours and usually will wear them in day time.
So here goes my review:
OH MY PEARL CHOCO 14mm
This one is by far the most subtle color contact lenses I have ever worn. The color is so au naturale and imitate natural chocolate color. I. myself have a pair of dark brown eyes and this contact lens has amplifies its color. It makes my eyes more vibrant without attracting too much attention of whether I am wearing contact lenses or not.
The diameter is 14 mm; which is very suitable if you are looking for natural look. Suitable for any occasion and very comfortable.
Price: RM 25.00
Look at how beautiful my eyes look after wearing them. It reminds me of the Tea live’s pearl. My eyes do shine like the pearl inside the milk tea. Yummy!
OH MY SOUL GREY 14MM
My choice of color contact lenses has always been grey or green. When I saw the model eye color, it just touches my soul begging to click yes. And yes, it went straight into my cart. No question ask.
The size is 14mm, my usual choice and has this low color density which so appealing. I just love the soft look.
To my surprise, all 3 contact lens are well moisturised and quite thin. From my 5 years experience of wearing color lens, most lens than can be worn for 3 months are thick, but these contradict that.
Price: RM 25.00
OH MY MOON GREY 14.5MM
Since my eyes are quite large, wearing a bigger diameter will make me look like an alien (said this mat salleh cikgu back when I was teaching at International School) Haha. I worn them once, but I don’t know, prolly because of the diameter was too large it did not look nice on me.
But I did purchase a slightly bigger diameter anyway. The size is 14.5mm and it definitely make my big eyes look bigger. But this time, I do like the look. It makes me look 10 years younger. This is when the Barbie Eyesland name seems related. I look like a living doll!
Price: RM 25 (BEST SELLER)
A very satisfying review, I should say. I love their products immensely and would like to recommend you to try. If you are interested you may open one of the link attached below or just contact them through whatsapp.
Losing friends is devastating to some especially when you are the one who’s been left behind. The pattern is at its most protuberant as soon after our mid 20s and we begin to wonder why. What is it worth? Aristotle was not blathering when he […]
Sunway Pyramid West is a hub of many things and as a parent; what attracts me the most is its offer for my family as a whole. A convenient yet very chic F&B and an all-in-one child enrichment and edutainment centre.
Our journey to the West (Sunway Pyramid WEst lahhh).
Fortunately for us, we’ve been invited to experience the glimpse of its myriad wonders last week. It is so fun that I would love to share the experience with you.
From older generation to generation y to generation alpha.
I never had this interest of playing a guitar before. I just thought I should leave that skill to someone else but at this point in life, I do believe that I was wrong. A person should at least try EVERYTHING once in order to find their métier. Especially our kids. As a gen Y, I was raised by a much conservative generation. A generation that only understand of giving the essential is already more than enough. We as young parents who had tremendous exposure on many opportunities know better that living is more than prepping your kids to get better jobs in the future. It is the living, it is experiencing, it is the many knowledge they could gather and had fun doing (said the superparent; I believe most gen y thought they were. You can see by how much we want to do for our kids; from fully breastfeed to home schooling to kids psychology (perasanla korang hohoho)).
I once heard this traveller said “I used all my money to travel, I quit my job and do part time whenever I need to. Do I regret of doing so? I would regret more of not seeing enough.” Yes, that’s a choice. And I once saw this many scenario of people who doesn’t buy anything for themselves in order to save for the future. The funny thing about the future, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN. The choice is whether you want to live to the fullest or to do average knowing your life in this world is a one time thing. (Of course you have akhirat, but why sacrifice your duniya when Islam would love to see you discovering?). My opinion is not important, but how you would open your mind to it is.
The ukulele lesson
And so, this excited early 30s mom took that challenge of learning everything once while hoping her introvert above average son can see how confident she is always. (Not knowing is not the thing you should worry about, not trying is a bigger problem).
We came in late that day and the class has already started. The instructor gave us 2 sets of ukulele and an ukulele lesson book (they gave the book for free). We were struggling real bad as we don’t even know how to pinch the strings and so we just taram through out the entire class.
After the class has ended, while we’re waiting for the other activities, the instructor came by to say hi as he noticed our late arrival. He gave us a personal basic lesson of which fingers to use and how to read the notes from the book. I realise rather quickly that playing this ukulele is super easy! I just need more practice to master it. Video below is embarassing, but bare in mine, I am shameless. hahahahah.
I used Eken h8r for the video. I thought it would look nice. Ha ha ha. Not.
Playing doh and gym class movement
A session of playing doh Aish (my son) had that day. I am still puzzle of what kind of doh they were using since the doh turned to be in a polysterine spongy state after leaving it for a while.
I didn’t get the picture of the gym class movement but the class was fun. I believe the purpose of the class are to make the kids more responsive and to improve their social skill. The gym class was so interactive and the kids were so involved especially when they are playing the music box game.
Alright! My kid needs to go to school now, I just wish I could spend more time on writing. Haha. (old snail). Anyways, the overall experience was exciting. I would love to come by again to experience the other activities they have. If you are interested to know more about its awesome indoor playland or its international playschool or where it is situated feel free to open this website.
