Event: The Roof turns 2!

The Roof, Asia’s iconic tourist attraction and integrated entertainment hub located in the heart of Bandar Utama, celebrated its second anniversary with cocktails and canapes served at the star attraction of the hub, Stratosphere. Stratosphere is the luxury open-air rooftop bar nestled on top of an infinity grassed helipad, the first and only in Asia, which offers an unprecedented panoramic bird’s-eye view of the city and greater Klang Valley. 


I’ve been up on Stratosphere before, and I must say, it offers a view not a lot of buildings can offer. Granted, it’s not the tallest building in the PJ area, but at the same time, it does give off an exhilarating feeling, standing on the helipad, feeling the wind on your face, and feeling a little like that scene in Titanic :p

Event: Tiger Beer unleashes the new Tiger White and movie production

An all-new innovative product that is brewed with subtle spicy hints of clove, coriander, and orange peel becomes the latest addition to join Tiger’s expanding portfolio.

Aptly called Tiger White, the wheat beer comes to fruition two years after the brand unveiled its innovative beverage Tiger Radler, a variant that combines the crisp and easy-drinking taste of Tiger Beer with the zesty flavour of natural lemon juice.


The introduction of White proves once again that Tiger Beer does not rest on its laurels and constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation, to create fresh and exciting brews for its consumers.

The Playsuit that can Switch up your Style

Playsuits have been trending since the past years and women love the look. Playsuits are the fun playful version of the normal jumpsuits. It is definitely a fashion trend that is here to stay! Playsuits always have that trendy yet sexy element to it which women can style to various occasions.

There are plenty of designs of playsuits for women to choose depending on their style but these three playsuit designs will absolutely switch up your appearance. Mix it up with accessories, shoes and even bags for a complete fashionista look.


1. Black and White Aztec
Aztec prints are very trendy especially the black and white patterns. Apart from that, coloured ones can also be perfect for those who are a little more adventurous, and I have seen some Aztec prints that are just bursting with colour. Personally for me, I would prefer monochromatic ones. These can easily be paired with anything from a nice jacket to a statement necklace and stylish heels. This will definitely be an awesome outfit to show off at parties or even on a casual day out. Walk out feeling comfortable and stylish everywhere you go.

Review: Innisfree Water Glow Cushion SPF50+/PA+++

So, I recently got back into the BB Cushion craze after a while of not jumping into it after the Etude House Cushion came out. Many cosmetic companies have already come up with their own version of the BB Cushion, and not surprisingly, Innisfree also had their own, which I believe was just recently launched late last year.


When Innisfree had a sale of 50% off their BB Cushions, be it the Water Glow Cushion or the Long Wear Cushion, I decided to try it out and see if it's worth the hype. The Cushions are worth RM80, so I got them for only RM40.


There are two ranges to the product, which is the Water Glow range, and the Long Wear Range. The Water Glow range, as you might have guessed, gives off a little more dewy texture, and is suitable for dry to normal skin. The Long Wear range caters to oily combination skin, and is a little more matte, and  is suitable for long wearing time, such as morning to night. Initially, I wanted to get the Long Wear, as my skin tends to get really oily after only half a day, and I wanted something that could last me the whole day at the office. But then again, I also wanted the glow from the Water Glow range, and I read somewhere that the Water Glow range works just as well for skin that is oily. So, Water Glow it is!



So what are the main qualities of the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion?

From the Innisfree website:
1. 100% squeezed Jeju green tea water fills the skin with essential moisture.
2. Moisture coating effect from the water glow complex
3. It cools down your skin upon application to soothe the skin from environmental damage
4. Powerful UV protection with SPF 50+ PA+++





The BB Cushion comes in three shades, which are:

13 Light Beige
21 Natural Beige
23 True Beige


The Cushion casing is a little thinner than others, so I'm thinking if you want to get refills, and yes the Innisfree Cushion is refillable, you can only refill it with the Innisfree Cushion, and not other brands. Similarly, if you use another brand's casing for Innisfree refills, I think there will be a little hollow at the bottom of the casing cos other brand's casings are too thick.


I got the 21 Natural Beige.



What do I think?

Swatched with the Cushion on the right

Swatching the Cushion on my hand, I could see that it made my skin brighter. The coverage of the product is actually quite light, that while it does give a noticeable brightness, it's not too overwhelming that it cakes and people can see right away that you have a layer of make up on.

I also like that it is moisturising enough, and while it's made to give you dewy skin, it doesn't make your face look too oily.


I absolutely love the BB Cushion. The effect was really immediate. My skin was brighter, my pores were minimised, and it even did a decent job of covering up my dark circles! So suffice to say, it passed initial tests.

All in all, here are my conclusions:
  • I love that the BB Cushion has a nice herbal green tea-ish scent, synonymous to the Innisfree range. If you have been using the Innisfree Green Tea products, you will know what I mean.
  • The sponge that contains the product is slightly tougher than the other Cushions I've tried. I'm not sure how this is a good thing though, as when I progressed with using the product, I've had to push down a little harder to get the product on the application puff.
  • The application puff quality is similar to others, you just need to gently cleanse it after a while so that your applications remain flawless.
  • When I first put it on my skin, I love the scent and how it gives me a little cooling effect. I can feel my skin is moisturised, and my pores are minimised while my face looks brighter and flawless. I love that it gives me sufficient coverage and that I don't have to apply too much that it looks cakey.
  • Staying power itself is quite admirable. I can have it on the whole day, and still look just as new. Although, by virtue of the fact that I have to blot my face from oils, I don't feel the need to reapply as the coverage is still strong. I come home after a long day at work, and still shamelessly admire my skin in the mirror cos it's still so flawless heheh

So what do you think of the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion? Have you tried it? Do let me know in the comments below!

Innisfree Water Glow Cushion

Price: RM80.00

Size: 15g

Availability: Available at the Innisfree Outlet in Sunway Pyramid

*I bought the product for my own personal use. This has not affected the outcome of the review in any way.



Til the next time, stay beautiful!

Movie Review: No Escape (2015)

Thanks to MM2, I got to catch No Escape a few days before it opens in Malaysia on 3rd September. The screening was at GSC Paradigm Mall, which was awesome for me cos it wasn't too far :D That, and there were other shops at Paradigm that I wanted to visit :p

Event: Keep Calm and Zumba with Celebrity Fitness

Being in Malaysia, the hot climate can sometimes prove unbearable, and even the most seasoned Malaysians will complain of the heat. But even then, Celebrity Fitness Malaysia proves that the hot Malaysian heat is no excuse to keep you from exercising! In line with their philosophy to make fitness fun, Celebrity Fitness Malaysia recently held a pool party to introduce aqua based workouts as an enjoyable and beneficial twist to the daily workout routine.


Being an ex national swimmer myself, I know all too well that Aqua-based workouts engage all the core muscles, arms and legs. The best part about it? the cool water cools your body down and its buoyancy allows you to reach a greater range of motion and lowers the risk of injury, making water workouts suitable for everyone.

5 easy ways to get beautiful skin

Hey guys :)

Some of you have asked me personally how to achieve great skin that people will be envious about, skin with great complexion, and flawless even without makeup.

Well, I'm here today to let you know what I think will be the top 5 ways to get beautiful skin!

1. Get enough sleep

If you don’t want to wake up looking like a giant panda in the morning who has just cried buckets the night before, then please do take my advice.

At night, your skin repairs itself, and prepares for the next day. And the optimal time for your skin to do so? Between 10pm to 2am. So get to bed early, and rise the next day feeling like a new person! And of course, I do mean get uninterrupted sleep, where you sleep all the way til you wake up the next day (maybe at 6, or 7, or whenever you need to get up to go to work). I do NOT mean go to sleep from 10pm to 2am, wake up to do whatever you want to do, and then trudge back to bed again before waking up for work, because, my dear, it doesn’t work that way. You will only be putting more stress on your body, and trust me, you will definitely feel more lethargic when you wake up the second time around and feel like

Your body needs all the rest it can get, so help it along as you can, and I assure you, your skin will feel like a million dollars every day!

Review: Mary Kay Skinvigorate

Have you guys ever thought of scrubbing your face everytime you wash your face but don't really dare to because you're afraid of harming your skin from the rough abrasions? I was in the same situation as well, but lucky for me, I found Mary Kay's Skinvigorate.


There are many cleansing brushes out there, the most famous one being the Clarisonic which costs more than RM500....yes, it's quite expensive. There are other mid range cleansing brushes also, which costs between RM250-RM350. But what I will be reviewing today will be the Mary Kay Skinvigorate, which only costs RM190.

Review: Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Solow, Bumble, Shimmy

Hello peeps!

It's been a while since I reviewed a matte lipstick (you can read the Elianto one here), so here I am!

As you know, Colourpop has just only recently came out with a new product, and that is their Ultra Matte Lip. As the name suggests, it's a liquid lipstick that dries matte, and it touts to be able to glide onto the lips smoothly thanks to its lightweight formula and leaves SUPER intense pigment-rich colour with a bold, ultra matte look. It’s very long wearing and completely kiss proof!


This range comes in 33 shades, and retails for USD 6 (about RM24) per piece. When Makeup Niche first shared about it, I got very excited because the colours were all very pretty! They come in all hues, from nudes to pinks, to fuchsias, to purples, even greens! Yup, the range of colours are extensive!

Food Review: CoCo Ichibanya Curry House at One Utama

It's been a super long time, but I'm back with a food review!!! Thanks to The Butterfly Project,
Coco Ichibanya Curry House is located on the LG Floor of the new wing, directly opposite Kluang Station. If you've been to Lammeya in One Utama, that's where Coco is, as they have taken over Lammeya.


Walking into the place, the ambiance is pretty clean and simple. They did not change a lot of the original Lammeya layout, but I do like that they have brightened up the place a bit more by placing lighted columns along the wall. They put in new wallpapers, and even installed pipe-in music! That was a nice added touch.

Look Perfectly Put Together This Hari Raya with Timeless Luxury Accessories From Reebonz

Hari Raya is just around the corner, and many of us who will be celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri and hosting or going to numerous open houses, would have picked out the fabric and colors for each day’s ensemble, or we may have bought off-the-rack, while the rest of us are still searching, and growing increasingly frantic! Yes, even those who don't celebrate Hari Raya will also join in the frenzy ;)

However, even the most beautifully designed and embellished designer outfit may seem unfinished if not paired with the perfect accessories be they handbags, shoes, wallets or jewellery.

Review: Elianto Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick

Hello dearies!!!! I'm back after a hiatus (so sorry, life came in the way, with work, and moving house, and silly unifi not being able to RELOCATE my internet for me after NUMEROUS calls to the call centre. So I cancelled unifi, and now I'm using p1! Finally Internet equipped *yay*)


So back to the matter at hand, I'm back and today I will be reviewing a product that has come into the market not too long ago, and they're from Elianto. Yes, it's the Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick :) This is the first time I've received such a cute packaging from Elianto.  It goes to show that they have really given a lot of thought into what items to put into the package to showcase the signature features of the Long Wear Eyeshadow Stick. The moment I opened up the packaging, I understood immediately the properties that the product has.

Review: Catrice in Malaysia

Holla girls! So here's another review of a new drugstore brand I found last month thanks to Fiona :) What I love about this brand is that it's affordable enough that it doesn't hurt your wallet/ purse, and there are so many varieties of products to choose from. 


Catrice is a German brand (I think, since the website is a GmBH) that prides itself on following the trends of the latest fashionista and make up artist and formulating products that would cater to the mass market at a price that is friendly to your wallet. Their products are always updated, so there will never be running out of nothing new to try from Catrice!

Giveaway: Oral-B Ultra Thin Toothbrush

Holla guys! If personal hygiene is an important thing to you, then read on because I have just the thing in store for you!

Most Malaysians are concerned with the health of their gums yet do not know when they have a problem. With this in mind, Oral-B is launching the new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush and an awareness campaign to educate Malaysians that gum health issues can be easily addressed by choosing the right toothbrush.


The new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush has three features that makes it so powerful:

1. It has 100% finely tapered bristles that are clinically proven to improve gum health in 14 days!! 
2. It has a small 25mm head 
3. It has strong core bristles to remove plaque for better oral health

Its less than 0.01mm tips are designed for deep clean and are clinically proven to effectively clean along the gum line to reach up to 2x deeper between teeth versus regular, flat trim bristles (based on laboratory testing). The new Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush is clinically proven to improve gum health - keeping your teeth clean while being gentle on your gums, thus giving you the confidence to show off that healthy smile anytime!

Do you know that the colour of your gums actually determines the health of your gums? If gums are very light and pinkish in colour, they are healthy. If they are dark and reddish, you may have unhealthy gums. If gums are unhealthy, they will most likely be swollen or be susceptible to bleeding when you brush your teeth. This is due to inflammation caused by the immune system to protect itself from bacteria. Poor oral hygiene or not using the right toothbrush can cause a build-up of bacteria in between teeth and on the gum line thereby, irritating gums and causing gum disease.

The Oral-B UltraThin toothbrush has 3 colour indicators so you know that each will have a specific function to target a better clean for your teeth;

  • Power Tip BLUE bristles that effectively cleans those hard-to-reach areas keeping gums healthy in the molar area,
  • Plaque Disruption GREEN Bristles - strong core bristles that remove plaque for better oral health, and
  • Stimulator WHITE bristles that stimulate gums and positioned to maximise gum reach.

If you want to know more about the new Oral-B Ultra Thin toothbrush, the Oral-B Ultra Thin campaign booth will be up at LG2, High Street, 1 Utama Shopping Complex from25 to the 29th March 2015. Your readers are all invited to check out the new toothbrush.

Event: MIMMA 3 is back, and it's better than before!

MMA has always been a sport dear to my heart, mostly because I grew from not knowing the sport at all to something that I can relate to, and having a real sense of respect for the fighters who go into the ring and emerge heros, regardless of whether they win or not.



So you can bet yourself that I have always been a follower of Tune Talk's endeavours to bring MMA to the local scene by encouraging amateur fighters to have a hand at trying out their talents and strengths. It has been two years past, and this year marks the third, the Malaysian Invasion Mixed Martial Arts Season 3 #MIMMA3 as they scour the country yet again to unearth more local talents at the grass roots level.

I don't normally wake up super early for an event, but when I do, it's because it's something I really want to do. One fine example of that, is the annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta happening in Putrajaya. In its 7th year this 2015, it promises to be even more exciting, and has drawn quite a huge crowd.


le bb and I arrived at the site at about 7am, when the sky was still dark and there were still ample parking spaces available. Already, there is a crowd, and I was quite excited myself to see the many different hot air balloons that will be showcased. There are about 20 balloons, from all around the world. There are balloons from Thailand, USA, and even Spain!

Event: ONE: Malaysia wins big at latest ONE Championship MMA Fight

Asia’s largest mixed martial arts organization with a 90% market share, ONE Championship™ (ONE), kicked off 2015 with a spectacular show at the Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Fans were treated to another night of world-class mixed martial arts action with ONE: AGE OF CHAMPIONS. In the main event, Adriano Moraes defeated a tenacious Riku Shibuya by Unanimous Decision to retain the ONE Flyweight World Championship belt. 

On top of that, Malaysian fans were in for an awesome treat as ALL FIVE Malaysians competing took home the win!


ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes and challenger Riku Shibuya entertained the crowd with a showcase of striking and grappling exchanges in the main event. In the first round, Shibuya came out looking to take the fight to Moraes as the Brazilian worked to get Shibuya to the ground. On the mat, Moraes controlled the action by advancing position multiple times to Shibuya’s back although Shibuya exhibited exceptional defense. In the second, Shibuya did a better job of keeping the fight on the feet as he continued to stalk Moraes across the cage. Rounds three to five saw much of the same action with Shibuya continuing to press as Moraes dominated the ground game. In the end, Moraes’ various takedowns and submission attempts earned him a hard-fought decision.

Review + Giveaway: BelleWave Skincare Range

Raise your hands if you are NOT using a Swiss brand as part of your skincare regime! More often than not, I would think that you would either be using Korean or Japanese skincare brands. And no wonder, because Switzerland is always more famous for its watches than skincare. But, I’m here to tell you that Switzerland does indeed have skincare brands, and some reputable ones as well such as Crabtree and Evelyn, La Prairie, and Arbonne, amongst others.

One of them is BelleWave. Their products are botanical based with NO animal testing done, and BelleWave has been in Malaysia for 15 years. So if they have been around for so long, why haven’t we heard from them? Well, they are salon exclusive products, so more often than not, you wouldn’t know what brands your salon uses as they are not usually forthcoming about their products.


BelleWave has two main product ranges, which is WhiteWave, and ClearWave.
