Review: FoodPanda, the food delivery service that delivers

Holla beautiful people!!!!

Not sure if you guys have been through this, but have you guys ever wanted to just kick back at home after a long day at work, enjoying a scrumptious dinner without having to cook it, but always feeling too lazy to go out and buy it yourself? Or perhaps you are expecting some company over but always feel overwhelmed at having to cook for a large group but couldn't find the time to rush out to get some take-out? Well I myself have had too many of these type of days myself, especially seeing as how I am always so busy at work, and house chores are stopping me from finding food for myself or my guests.


This leaves me at a crossroads cos this is where I will start looking for food delivery services that can provide me with good food and at a convenience to me. Most of the food delivery services that I've found deliver home cooked food and while it's great that I can enjoy a home cooked meal, sometimes I just crave that one particular dish from a particular outlet, and that is where FoodPanda comes in :)

Give mom a break and help her #StayBeautiful

Everyone knows that being a mom is a full time job and being a mom also means less time to take care of themselves which can have an effect on her emotions and self-confidence.


In a move to recognise what moms go through every day and to recognise that she needs personal time alone to help her look after and pamper herself to stay beautiful, P&G and its brands recently launched a promotional campaign called #StayBeautiful that celebrates moms and what they do for the family and encourage moms to stay beautiful.

H-Artistry Delivers an Astounding Finale, Finishing the Year with a High

Last month was one of the best months I had in terms of epic parties, and you know why? It's because  of H-Artistry-The Global Art of Mixing, that shook the grounds of KL once again, this time treating partygoers to an epic night of stunning performances and hard pumping beats. The super-clubbing experience (and one of the few I really enjoyed) took it up a notch in this instalment, delivering a world-class production unlike any other and showcasing an outstanding visual innovation, pulling off yet another unmatched party experience of 2014.


As is the same as previous years, the event was held once again at the Malaysian International Exhibition and Convention Centre (MIECC) and this saw a diverse mix of musical genres on the night of 15 November, which included artists from both East and West, showcasing their unique sounds and coming together in one-night-only collaborations.

Experience to Believe: PETRONAS Primax 95 with Advanced Energy Formula Delivers Optimum Fuel Efficiency

A few weeks ago, I was one of the privileged few to join a 30-car convoy thanks to PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) to Ipoh for the sole purpose of testing out their latest fuel technology, the PETRONAS PRIMAX95 with Advance Energy Formula, to experience first-hand the superior efficiency of the latest fuel from PETRONAS during a day-long convoy which took us from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh and back again. This was coined the PETRONAS “Experience To Believe” programme and was aimed at further boosting product understanding and customer appreciation for its flagship fuel, the PETRONAS PRIMAX95 with Advance Energy Formula.



This PETRONAS PRIMAX95 with Advance Energy Formula fuel is touted to be able to clean the engine whilst optimising fuel delivery by cleaning and protecting critical injector and engine parts. On top of that, it also creates a finer fuel spray that enhances energy release by improving fuel atomisation for better fuel combustion.

Review: Sleek i-Divine Vintage Romance Palette

I'm back with another Sleek product review, and today I'm going to review one of the more famous must-haves in the Eyeshadow Palette collection, the Sleek i-Divine Vintage Romance Palette.


I got this palette a few months ago on Luxola, when they had their sale. The price at that time was RM53 with a 35% discount, so of course I had to grab it :D I bought it together with another Limited Edition Sleek Palette, the Celestial Palette, but I will review that another day.


Ingredient List

This palette contains 12 colours, one of which is matte (Propose in Prague), three shimmer (Love in London, Forever in Florence, Honeymoon in Hollywood), and the rest are pearlescent shades.
L-R


All 12 colours. Aren't they lovely?


The colours on the right up close


The colours on the left up close


I like their play on the names of the colours, but I can't help but feel that they have recycled some of the colours like Love in London, Honeymoon in Hollywood, and Lust in LA, which can be found in other Sleek palettes. However, keeping with this tone, I think they have made a pretty good job. Oh and I do not think that this is a Limited Edition palette cos there was no Limited Edition written on the packaging, unlike the Celestial Palette.

swatches without flash

Top row:
  1. Pretty in Paris: This is the highlighter shade of the palette, a silverish frosted colour that you can use to highlight ur browbone, or the inner corners of your eyes. Very pigmented 
  2. Meet in Madrid: A gold pearlescent colour that is perfect when swept across the entire eyelid. It's pearlescent muted gold shade captures the light, and when paired with Court in Cannes and Lust in LA, it really brings out your eyes
  3. Court in Cannes: This is a slightly frosted brown shade, that looks darker in the pan than after you applied it on your lids. However, it's buildable so you would need to apply more times to get a darker colour
  4.  Lust in LA: This is a bronzey darker colour to line your eyes with and the lower lashline as well. Its pearlescent colour will be able to make your eyes shine, and it's very pigmented and smooth
  5. Romance in Rome: This is one of the darker shades in this palette that's a mix between purple and blue. However when applied, it comes off a little lighter than expected but looks really pretty. Alternatively, if not used for a dark shade base, it can also be used as an overall shade for a day look 
  6. Propose in Prague: This is one of the neutral shades in the palette which also happens to be matte. Personally for me, I feel that this is the most unexciting colour in the palette, but the others make up for it :)


swatches with flash

Bottom row:
  1. A Vow in Venice: Having a purple base, this is a sort of plum colour. Though it had a little of a pearlescent colour in it, it looks more matte when applied on the lids 
  2. Marry in Monte Carlo: This is a brighter purple shade than the others and is quite pigmented. The texture is smooth, and it had a good colour payoff
  3. Honeymoon in Hollywood: This colour is more pigmented than the other purples in this palette. It has some sparkles in it, and I love using this colour on my lower lashline
  4. Bliss in Barcelona: This is a Royal Purple shade that reminds me of a lush lounge that Queen Elizabeth would have sat in :D I love this colour
  5. Forever in Florence: This is a dark burgundy colour that borders on maroon. The pigmentation was not as great overall, but it's buildable. Though it looks metallic on the pan, it gives a more matte finish when applied
  6. Love in London: The darkest colour in the palette, it would be totally logical to use this as your liner after you have applied your shadows. I love that it has sparkles as well. Colour payoff was good, but pigmentation is not as great as I'd hoped.
I love how this is a themed palette, and the colours are all vintage looking colours that contribute to sepia and cool tones. There are no bright colours like the Sunset or i-Candy palette, and this is what endeared me to it. Though there are quite a number of purples, it actually makes it my go-to palette when I'm doing up smokey eyes for a glam night out.


So what looks can you create with this palette? Overall, I went for a purple look, as my base I used Meet in Madrid, and in my outer crease I used Propose in Prague to give it an overall light purple sheen. I then blended in A Vow in Venice for my outer corners, and added a bit of Honeymoon in Hollywood towards the ends to make it more intense. Afterward, I fanned it out with Forever in Florence towards the crease and dusted Marry in Monte Carlo on the outer corners for the metallic sheen. I lined my eyes with Love in London, and highlighted my browbone with Pretty in Paris, blended in together with Propose in Prague.


For my lower lids, I lined the inner corners with Meet in Madrid, and the outer corners with Marry in Monte Carlo, which I blended in at the ends to create a continuous line.


Verdict: 8/10. I like that most of the shades in this palette are pigmented, which is what I love about Sleek palettes in the first place.

Repurchase: Definitely yes.

Last Comments: If you like neutral cool colours and are thinking of experimenting a little outside your comfort zone without using bright colours, this is the palette for you.


So do you like the colours? Let me know!


Price: RM53.00 on Luxola  (USD11.99 on the Sleek website)

Size: 12 x 1.1g

Availability: This palette is available on Luxola and also the Sleek website.



Til the next time, stay beautiful!

Maybelline Unveils Big Eyes Mascara to help Ladies Achieve 2x Bigger Eyes

Maybelline New York, the No. 1 colour cosmetics brand in the world and Malaysia introduces its latest innovation and newest extension to the popular Volum’ Express® mascara line today.

Pink Fong, Marketing Manager of Maybelline Malaysia, explained during the product launch that the BIG EYES MASCARA is designed specifically to solve common problems women encounter when trying to achieve the ‘Big Eyes’ look. “One of the biggest concerns Asian women face when using makeup is how to play up the eyes. Everyone wants to have bigger eyes, or the ‘Big Eye’ effect. However, many of us face the same problems, such as small eyes, droopy eyelids, short eyelashes, or even lashes that just won’t curl properly, no matter how many times you try!”

iHerb.com Shopping Experience and Haul

So I decided to jump on the iHerb bandwagon a few days ago to see what the fuss was all about.

iHerb is a US based  online store that ships to many many countries (for a fee, of course). I think it was originally started up to sell nutritional products and supplements, but they have since branched out to selling other types of stuff, like pet items, bath and beauty, kids and babies, groceries even!


I have heard that most of the people that I know that frequents iHerb is for their range of Real Techniques brushes, and E.L.F. Cosmetics, together with the affordable price. So since I have been wanting to get my hands on some E.L.F stuff, I decided to check it out.

Review: Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

I have always loved Sleek products, ever since I got introduced to it two years ago. I love that Luxola has them, and they are really affordable and their quality is on par with other more expensive brands out there.

So since my Maybelline blush was finishing, I decided to go with a little Sleek and see what they had in store for me. Of course it didn't hurt that they were having a sale so I got it for 35% off :D


The Sleek Blush comes in a small matte compact with a mirror.  However, it doesn't come with an applicator brush. The size of the blush is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, while also large enough to contain all that product, which for me is a really good buy. One thing I really loved about Sleek is their *ahem* sleek packaging. It always comes with a matte surface which I love :)

Event & Review: TGV Indulge in conjunction with Butterfly Girl's Night Out

Whenever someone achieves a milestone, there is always a sense of pride and accomplishment. I remember when I celebrated my first anniversary with le bb, it was something that I felt very proud of, as we had undergone many ups and downs in just one year together. Also, when I passed my first year mark of working in my current company, feeling very accomplished that I had stuck it out through thick and thin.


But nothing beats the happiness when your favourite butterfly community has also reached the one year mark this year. To know that you're a part of what made the community flourished, to know that the community that has supported you through your blogging years is finally one year old, that is something that cannot be put into words.

Review: 101 Hair Care Introduces New Advanced Follicle Technology (AFT) Treatment

*Warning* Picture filled post ahead!!!!!!

Have any of you guys ever felt that you don’t really need to go for hair treatments just because thinning hair or damaged hair only occurs in middle-aged, elderly people? Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re mistaken. Just because you’re young doesn’t mean that your hair isn’t damaged, and more often than not, it’s because of your lifestyle.

I used to be one of those who thought I have superbly healthy hair. Sure, I have had heavier than most hair fall and dandruff issues compared to other people, but I assumed it was mostly because I had long hair. So when 101 Hair Care approached me to ask if I would like to review their latest service, the AFT Treatment, I was a little sceptical on whether or not this product actually works, considering my hair wasn’t that much damaged to begin with, I just had a typical dandruff problem.


BOY WAS I WRONG.

Event: GAB Oktoberfest Celebration and a New "Mugnificent" Record

Hints that something big awaits the public were dropped weeks before the launch of Guinness Anchor Berhad’s Oktoberfest celebrations. Does size really matter? Is big better? The curiosity of many was laid to rest when the country’s leading brewery unveiled Malaysia’s Biggest Mug at their launch of the annual beer festival. Standing at 2.6m high and 1.72m wide, the giant replica of the company’s renowned Oktoberfest 2014 promotional mug, created a new record that was endorsed by The Malaysia Book of Records at the event.


“Having organised the festival successfully for six years, this is an undeniably proud moment for us here at GAB. We are thrilled to bring you a bigger and better Oktoberfest celebration this 2014. Look out for Malaysia’s Biggest Mug as it travels across the country next month,” Hans Esaadi, MD of GAB said at the launch held at the brewery’s tavern.

Review: Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

For most Asian girls like us, the bane of our existence is small eyes that looks shifty and doesn't perfectly portray our beauty. So what do we do? We pile on eyeliners and mascaras to create those perfect looking peepers that will drown whoever looks at us into the depths of our soul :p Ok, so maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but don't tell me you've never spent long minutes just coating your lashes with lots and lots of mascara just to lengthen and curl your lashes a little bit more to have the desired effect. Cos I know I do.


But that was before I discovered Maybelline's The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. As far as I know, Maybelline is actually the first mascara I've seen in the market that comes with two brushes, one big brush and one microbrush. 2x brushes for 2x bigger eyes!

Facial cleansers are a delicate affair as you use them every morning after you wake up, and every night before you go to bed. A good cleanser is one that will remove all your impurities and residue make up leftover that your regular make up remover doesn't manage to clean off. Oftentimes, using a make up remover and cleanser is one more extra step that can be tedious and tiresome, especially after you have had a whole day of work and can't wait to jump into bed to cap off the day.


So I came across Beauty Talk's Oxysolution Mousse thanks to HiShop, and at first glance I was a little confused as to what this little bottle of bubbles can do for us, as there were no English instructions on the box, just Japanese characters. But luckily there was an instruction sheet in the box, and I realised that this Oxysolution Mousse is actually a facial cleanser and make up remover all in one!

Event: Converse Jack Purcell Pop Up and Offday launches new Converse footwear line


Fans of Converse rejoice! There is a new player in town, and that is  Converse Jack Purcell!! In conjunction with the release of Converse Jack Purcell’s Fall 2014 range, a collaboration with local fashion artist and curator Irman Hilmi and his boutique The Offday at Jalan Telawi, Bangsar we were given a taste of how the new fall collection will look like, and I have to say, it's quite awesome.
