G9 Skin @ First Lip Stick

I'm not a lipstick lady.
I don't know why, maybe I think it's too feminine to put on lipsticks. #lol
Perhaps I just didn't get the right lipsticks, right shades for myself.
So excited to meet the latest collection of First Lip Stick from G9 Korea.
Madly in love with all the five colours they have in their collection!
Don't believe me? Let's check out yourself! :)






It's important to match a lipsticks with an outfit, or else it's worthless in buying a brand new lipstick that will clash with everything in your wardrobe.
First Lip Stick only has five colours schemes to provide a perfect Korean makeup look for all ladies.
Though it only has five sensational trendy colours, but they all can be worn for different occasions and different types of skin tones.



These are the 5 shade in the collection:
#01 Midnight Red
#02 Dry Rose
#03 Dazzling Pink
#04 Peach Brown
#05 Vintage Red



The lipsticks are stressed with 3 main highlights:
#1 Creamy in texture
#2 Perfect colour with one apply
#3 Light feeling like second skin
Though the packaging is a bit bulky to bring along, the design looks classy and elegant.


2 key moisturizing ingredients:
#1 Shea Butter to soothe dry lips
#2 Tocopheryl Acetate, also known as Vitamin E to moisture lips

Two ways usage:
#1 Full colour: After drawing the lip line, fill the lipstick from the inside of your lips, then fill the empty space.
#2 Gradient look: Apply powder or cushion on outer lips, then fill the lipstick along the line from inside out.



#01 Midnight Red, shade like classic red.





Get yourself a sexy empowering shade when going a girl hangout with your girl friends.
A red lipstick can make you feel amazing and stand out too!



#02 Dry Rose, shade like berry.





Dry Rose has a sense of relaxing and also gives casual vibe on your look.
Have it with you day and night, while not only hanging out with your friends, working at office, but also at a social get-together.



#03 Dazzling Pink, shade like fuchsia pink.





Bright skin with shining pink colour for your important night events.
You will look refreshing and young after put on the bright pink shade!



#04 Peach Brown, shade like nude.





This nude brown shade looks professional yet not so flashy.
It gives a natural vibe which I think it works perfectly for your working days.




#05 Vintage Red, shade like coral.





Not too harsh, but looks glamorous.
Definitely a perfect shade for you to have a night spent with your dates. :)



The colour is pretty well-maintained after the first wipe.
However, the removal is also very easy; just 2-3 wipes with normal water.



✔ It's long lasting! Just one touch and I don't need to reapply after I eat.
✔ It's in semi matte finishing! It is not as shiny as a shimmer finish, also not as flat as a matte finish.
✔ It's in light powdery texture! I barely feel like I'm wearing a lipstick.
✔ It's smooth! It glides smoothly onto my lips.
✔ It's non-sticky! I felt more like a fresh balm on my lips.
If you are looking for a lipstick that has all the above ticks, you can consider to play your lips and make your lips most beautiful with the trendy 5 colours from the First Lip Stick.

Unboxing The Butterfly Project 4th Birthday Tote Bag

Hey guys!
What did you guys do during the long Hari Raya weekend?
Well I spent a lot of time doing photography and publishing new content during the long weekends.
Of course not only that, I also spent some quality times with my parents and girlfriends while Lik was busy with his meeting. #Teehee
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
The other day, I blogged about Birthday Party for the Butterfly Project, have you read that yet?
You can read the post at here to find out the fun and laughter we had at the birthday bash.
Sincerely thanks to the Butterfly Project for having me on their 4th birthday party, and also making everyone so happy and excited!
As I mentioned earlier that I would do an unboxing post of the birthday tote bag, so here it is!





The canvas tote bag looks simple with the new designed logo of The Butterfly Project Malaysia.
Somehow the tote bag may look small; but believe me, the bag has a lot of weight with more than 15 beauty products from 12 different brands!
So, shall we begin the unboxing with the smaller units under Alphabet!





#1 1028: Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara
It's critical to use a good mascara to get intended results; for me, it must be both water proofed and smudge resistance.
I hate having a panda eye after spent a half day outside, it looks terrible when there is a layer of black underneath the eye.
I'm happy with this Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara @ RM59.90 from 1028, because the formula is lightweight so it does't feel clumpy but bring out a nice and long lasting curls.
Also, I find the brush is easy for application and creates more volume.

#2 Adidas: Climacool Shower Gel and Climacool Deodorant
Adidas Climacool Shower Gel @ RM10.90 and Climacool Deodorant @RM4.90 contain exclusive fresh activated capsules to keep you smelling fresh and clean for all day long.
Which means you will constantly feel and smell fresh, from the gym to the office and even go on your date!
The scent is great as it smells like the combination of lemon, mint and lavender, makes me feel refreshing all the time!

#3 Clinelle: PureSwiss Hydracalm Sleeping Mask, UV Defense SPF50
I know about Clinelle through their ambassador, Ella Chen from the Taiwanese girl's group S.H.E.
Clinelle was founded in 2004, and their products are mainly dedicated to repair, refine, and reshield to bring natural and long term beautiful skin.



I love using sleeping mask because it's so easy.
Whenever I came back home late, I just applied one layer of sleeping mask and then head back to sleep, and wash off in the next morning.
PureSwiss Hydracalm Sleeping Mask @ RM75.90, is a cooling and refreshing light cream sleeping mask to provide hydration and brightening effects throughout the night.
For me, it is a decent moisturizing sleeping mask, with fast absorption, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and supple in the next day.
However, it has a mild scent like vicks cream, but did not irritate my skin at all.



I'm quite fussy in choosing sunscreen because I'm afraid the wrong sunscreen will produce more oil to my combination skin.
I don't like wearing a greasy and oily makeup for whole day long.
I find the Clinelle UV Defense SPF50 @ RM48.70 is easy to use and well blend into my skin, maybe because it is very light in texture, almost like watery type.
Also, the sunscreen has no smell and no colour, so I find it's good to wear it with my daily simple makeup.



One of my favourite product from the goodie bag is the Clinelle Hot Body Shapper Cream @ RM89.90.
It helps to reduce cellulite, flatten tummy, shape, firm and tone body to a more contour shape.
Besides, it also improves skin elasticity and brighten skin tone at the same time too!



I've been using lots of different slimming products in the past few years; one thing that bothers me is I don't like the cream or gel residue on my hands, and making my hands sticky and smelly after the application.
This Hot Body Shapper Cream works perfectly for me because it has a built-in massage rollers which provides an easy and convenient way to apply.
Just twist the applicator and squeeze sufficient amount of cream on your desired areas, then massage by rolling gently in circular movement until the cream is absorbed into your skin.
I'm now using it every morning and before I go to gym, hopefully it helps me to achieve the result I want! #hehe

#4 Dolly Wink: Liquid Eyeliner WP Super Black
I find it is tricky to draw a nice fish style eye liner; I always mess it up not only my hand is shaky, also I find some eyeliners that I used are difficult to control to draw on my skin.
If you also going through the same situation like me, I suggest you to have a try on the Liquid Eyeliner from Dolly Wink @ RM59.90.
This liquid eyeliner is absolutely smudge free, water resistance, and dries out very quickly.
The brush is very thin and soft, so it's much easy to control and create a straight fine lines.
I personally really love this product, and I will definitely repurchase this again!

#5 Gliz & Glam Studiobooth
If you read my my previous post of the Butterfly party, you must have seen the lovely photo booth decoration from G&G Studio.
The backdrop with lovely pastel colours attracted everyone's attentions, and I have to commend that the print quality is also average at best!
They really did a good job by giving good memories to the guests at the party!

#6 Hadabisei: Moisturizing Face Mask (Extra Rich)
It is said that Hadabisei moisturizing face mask @ RM48.70 (contains 5 pieces) provides special hydration care for skin that requires an instant boost of moisture.
It's formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Royal Jelly, plus lemon acids to soften keratin, and amino acids that deliver moisture to skin.
First time trying a royal jelly mask and I have to say it is amazing!
Unlike other Korean masks I used daily; Hadabisei sheet mask is thicker, but not like those see through silk mask.
Anyway, if you speak of hydration and moisture, I think this mask is going to fix well.

#7 Mamonde: Floral Hydro Mist and Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner
Mamonde is one of my favourite beauty brand.
I'm using Mamonde BB cushion for a month and I still absolutely love it!
It provides perfect coverage with just a thin layer on my skin, without giving any cakey face.
I really think it fits very well into my skin, and I would love to recommend it to you!



Recently, I have been using face mist (different brand) before I put on my skincare routine and makeup.
I realized my skin is more hydrated after the face mist application, and also my makeup stays longer than before.
Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist @ RM49.00 gives me a soothing and refreshing feeling, and leaves my skin soft and fine after that.
I like the floral scent and also the fine texture.
If you've never tried a face mist before, try it out and hopefully it gives you the same benefits I have with the face mist.



Now, take a look at the Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner @ RM39.00.
I find the liner is thin enough for drawing a sharp straight line, also it has waterproof formula that won't smudge easily.
It needs additional effort to wipe off as I need to rub under the water and cotton a few more times until it is completely cleaned.

#8 Neesya: Cleansing Set
Neesya products are with proven innovative science, and used of premium natural extracts in it's products.
Neesya cleansing set @ RM39 includes 75ml Brightening Enzymatic Refiner, and 100ml Brightening Gel Cleanser.
The Brightening Enzymatic Refiner can efficiently enhance the appearance of skin clarity, even tone and radiance,
The Brightening Gel Cleanser helps to prepare skin to receive maximum moisture and brightening effects, and also dissolving skin-dulling surface.

#9 Orkid Cosmetics: Liquid Lipsticks
Orkid Cosmetics is a Halal beauty brand that made from Malaysia.
They provide affordable high quality cosmetics for modern Muslimand conscious women.
If you check their website, liquid lipsticks are their main products.
Glad to have a chance a try out the top four colours include TurntVibesMars and Blush from Orkid Liquid Lipsticks @ RM39 of each!





I never owned any liquid lipsticks before, so Ockid Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks are my first liquid lipsticks ever!
The lipsticks have beautiful rich pigment colours and all in matte finishing.
Though it has a non-sticky texture like lip balms, it does not dry out my lips.
I always prefer nude and neutral lipstick colours, so my favourite choices are Vibes and Blush since Turnt and Mars are more in darker shade like chocolate.

#10 Pax Moly: Aloe Vera Soothing Gel
Everyone knows that Aloe Vera is good for soothing and moisture our skin.
Pax Moly Aloe Vera Soothing Gel @ RM29.90 is made of 100% authentic Jeju Aloe.
You can use the gel for the whole body including face, arms, legs and even hair.
Not only it helps to soothing and moisture the skin, it also can whiten the skin, lighten stretch marks, and prevents winkles and fine lines.
I remembered when I had sunburn on my beach holiday in 2 years ago, my Korean girlfriend advised me to use 100% pure Aloe Vera to reduce the redness on my face.
She said only 100% pure Aloe Vera can treat the sunburn symptoms. :)



#11 Photobook Malaysia
Photobook Malaysia is my top choice when you talk about printing photos and creating photobooks.
The making process is very easy and simple; from choosing the format, to upload images, then design and place order.
The paper quality is thick and the printing colour is sharp enough; also the customer service is always nice from the moment you ordered till it delivered to your doorstep.
So, leave all good memories with Photobook Malaysia, and I'm sure they will impress you!
