Review: Miss Hana Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Hello loves! ❤ LOL sorry, I just had to edit because it was really weird holding the box like this with my original background which you will see later in this post and I realize that I picked the wrong shade of lipstick for this look but anyway, hello again! I'm so excited that I got to work with Natta Cosme once again! (Here)'s my first time and (here)'s my second time. One of my favourite online cosmetics shops in Malaysia. 

When we talk about eyeliner, my favourite kind will always be liquid liners. Why? Because I have oily lids and often when I wear pencil liners, gel or any retractable, it will always smudge and transfer down to my lower lashes. But will Miss Hana Waterproof Gel Eyeliner change my mind and my whole perceptions towards pencil and gel liners? Lets find out!

According to the description on Natta Cosme site, this is a waterproof, oil and concentrated colour based gel liner. 
Its extremely waterproof removable; a long time anti-sweat, anti-tears, oil, and maintain a whole day without smudges. 
They have 4 colours all together but I'm going to review only 2 colours; No. 1 Night Black & No. 3 Choco Brown.

I didn't want to sharp the pencils 'cause I want to show you how much I've been using it hihi. Its very creamy in texture 
if you ask me. I tried to smudge it right after I swatch it, but that's how messy it can get. So if you want to smoke it out or smudge 
it a bit under your lash lines then you better do it fast after you applied it as it sets pretty fast. After that, they only way to 
remove it is with an oil based makeup remover. 

It glides on smoothly and like I said earlier, its creamy yet it sets fast. And its not at all dry like most pencil and gel liners. 
You can easily get away with one smooth application as it glides on smoothly like I said before. I used it all week last week and 
must say, it lasts all day even under a hot blazing sun and I was sweating, but the liner stayed put. Honestly, 
it blew me away and I was sold immediately.  

Likes: It doesn't smudge or budge and lasts well if not all day on my eyes (all; eyelid, tightline, waterline, lash line). The texture is creamy, not at all dry, and glides on smoothly with one application. It sets fast so you can straight away do the rest of your makeup after that. 

Dislikes: I have to sharp it. Its such a cute pencil with cute packaging. I don't want it to habis :-(

Overall: All I can see is, liquid liners, you have found your new match HAHA! I seriously love these gel liners. Seriously though, at first I was so scared to use it for fear that it might melt under my eyes and ruin my makeup as I have very oily lids but it does the exact opposite! Totally recommend it to those with oily lids and those who hates eyeliner smudging and melting down your eyes. 
Dislamer: These products were given to me for reviewing purpose but my opinions are my own and 100% honest.

GIVEAWAY: Montagne Jeunesse + Review

Hello loves! ❤ Since I joined the Dove S.O.S 21 Days Challenge (here), I've been having some "me" time a lot for the past weeks. Not only that, I've been doing some light exercises and eat a lot of healthy foods too! It's been such a fun week indeed! These are the face masks from Montagne Jeunesse that I've been using lately. You can easily find these face masks at your nearest Watson and its relatively inexpensive too! 

About Montagne Jeunesse:

Whether you enjoy looking after your skin, being pampered or indulging in some me-time, be it alone or with friends, we promise you’ll all enjoy one of these Life’s Little Pleasures. 

On the first week I tried the De-Clog Pores strips. It comes in three in one pack. 
I rarely use these kinds of things but I do have some large pores and blackheads all around my nose. 

Result: My nose is not that clean after I stripped it off but still, some did came off and my nose seemed to be smoother. 

The Manuka Honey Peel Off has just landed at our local Watson stores. 
I don't really like using peel off masks as I'm more drawn to using face masks but I decided to give this one a try. 

Result: I love that it peeled off my blackheads and made my skin looked a little brighter, smooth and less oily on my cheeks. 
Its very easy to peel off and it set quite okay and not really that sticky. And after giving it a try, I kind of like peel off mask now hihi.

This Creamy Coconut mask also just landed at Watson. To be honest, this is my first time using a creamy mask like this. I don't even know there's something like this LOL. Though its not really suitable for me as I have an oily combination skin but I do have some dry patches here and there and I had a rough week when I used this and this is perfect to bring back energy to your face so I decided to try!

Result: Really loving this cream mask. The texture is thick so it won't spill once you spread it all over your face. And idk maybe its just me but the coconut scent kind of felt, you know, relaxing to me. I felt refreshed, hydrate and my skin felt smooth like toi toi gitu. 

Yup, you got it, giveaway time! My very first giveaway hihi. Not what I imagined my first giveaway would be but hey, a giveaway is still a giveaway :D All thanks to Montagne Jeunesse, I can reward my beloved readers with some masks that you can try and experience it on your own.

Review: NovExpert Anti-Aging Eye Contour

Hello loves! ❤ This post was supposed to be up last week but I was so busy last week :/ Haih, sorry! Anyway, ever heard of the brand NovExpert Paris before? I seriously haven't but I got a chance by HiShop Malaysia to get to know this brand and explore one of their products, the NovExpert Expert Anti-Aging Eye Contour. I'm 21 this year and I think its time for me to start using anti-aging products. I don't have the baddest dark circles and fine lines under my eyes but I do have them. And I hate them. Wish I can hide them using makeup but I can't :/ I mean I can hide dark circles but fine lines and wrinkles? DAYUM.

About NovExpert Paris:
NovExpert is 100% made in France - Designed, manufactured, assembled and packaged in France. NovExpert was founded by researchers and doctors specialists of skin aging, These experts involved sign their formulas, inspired by recent advances of anti-aging medicine. The Novexpert Doctor Line consists of 5 ranges but only 3 ranges are available in Malaysia: Integral Anti-Aging Care, Express Anti-Aging Care and Eye Expertise. 

This one is under the Eye Expertise range. This product is made to retain our youthful appearance, energizing our delicate eye area and promoting cell recovery. The formula targets fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. "Ultra-high performance active ingredients to illuminate the eyes: chlorella (anti-dark-circle), green tea (decongesting) and plant pulp (lifting). A concentration of exceptionally high-performance anti-aging ingredients that target DNA and collagen for in-depth skin regeneration"

It has a pump which I love. Very hygienic. Its hypoallergenic and tested under dermatological control. This product can be used day and night and should be stored somewhere cool to enhance its effect. And you should close it tightly after use to preserve the properties of the Novexpert formulas, with high concentrations of plant extracts and biotechnological agents. Keep away from light, heat and humidity.

The texture is really light. Not too liquidy nor too thick. It comes out white/cream but when you touch it, it turns pink and sparky when you blend it but its not obvious when you apply it on your eyes and its easily absorb. It does have a scent to it but nothing too strong. 

I'm still using this product right now but these pictures are from last week. You can see that my fine lines have reduced and become a lot smoother. But I don't see any significant changes in terms of my dark circles but that's nothing a conceal can't conceal but fine lines? There's no foundation or concealer in the world that can hide it. 

Likes: Even though its labelled as hypoallergenic, it doesn't cause me any allergy or irritation at all and I have a very sensitive skin and eyes. But this may vary from person to person. It also smooths out my fine lines and leaves my eyes looking fresh! 

Dislikes: The only dislike I have is that its light. I prefer my eye cream to be thick and heavy, I don't know that's just the way I like it.

Overall: Despite that, its still a great product. I really love the fact that it reduces and smooths out my fine lines. It annoys me that I even have one but to find something that can actually take that away from me, well, lets just say that I'm holding on to it! Those who are searching for something like this should definitely give it a try! But if dark circles are your main concern then you should try this (here).

Event: Dove School Of Skindulgence - Lets take the pledge!

Hello loves! ❤ As a second year degree student, a part time lebih sikit blogger and a part time driver for my brothers HAHA, I don't have much "me" time for myself. Especially when I'm taking theatre this semester and with all the teaching subjects, I'm all tied up. Heck, I don't even remember the last time I've been to a spa for some aroma therapy massage or a facial treatment. But last two weeks I attended the launch of Dove School of Skindulgence You Better-Than-Milk Routine at The Apartment, The Curve all thanks to Dove and The Butterfly Project ❤ 

The event started with Azah Yasmin as the host of the night (she's stunning btw!) for some intro and Siti Suhaila Abd Hamid together with Chong Yen Nee, Brand Manager, Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd launching the School of Skindulgence (S.O.S) Facebook Campaign "as a solution to encourage women to indulge and pamper themselves on a daily basis in less time and with less money and all in the comfort of their own home". The campaign focuses on three pillars which are Love Yourself (Better than milk), Stay Active ad Eat right.

“Dove® Body Wash with NutriumMoisture™ is proven to be better than milk. The unique blend of moisturising and nourishing ingredients replenishes nutrients back into the skin while you shower. That in itself is daily pampering for your skin. But, we would like to encourage women to take a step further and pledge through the Dove® School of Skindulgence Facebook campaign to love themselves, eat right, and stay active through simple no-hassle, no fuss, inexpensive activities that they can do at home for themselves"

We were assigned to Group A, B and C depending on the card that they gave us before the event started. 
I got Group A and our assignment was to cook (eat right)! So fun! 

 We had to cook two dishes which I never heard before and obviously never eaten before but it was delicious! hihi. 
I didn't know how to make the dishes so that's me copying other people :p

It was so much fun preparing the dishes and I did my best decorating it as pretty as possible hehe chef Izzah here :D
Oh and I didn't wear any makeup that day and my skin looked pretty okay, woot!

Group B was Love Yourself so they set up a bathroom for us to shower in lol jk. We did moisture test and the New Dove Body Wash Nourished Better Than Milk is seriously better than milk! My moisture level went higher than with milk. Amaze balls!

And Group C was Stay Active. The instructor gave some exercising tips! 

After that we were served with a really delicious meal. They even had lamb! And some delicious deserts. 
And does anyone know what drink this is/was? Its so good I'm having dreams about it!!

Now lets get more into the Facebook/Instagram Campaign!
