Review: Ardell Demi & Demi Wispies Lashes

Salam everyone!
Fuyo, something I have never blogged about before. Tak pernah bayang myself blogging about lashes but I have a few lashes that I wanted to share both super cheap and affordable hehe. The Ardell ones are considered as affordable. So yang super cheap ones kena tunggu :p I have two Ardell lashes that I'm loving; Demi & Demi Wispies. 

One thing you need to know about me is that I am all about that natural look. And my make-ups are all pretty basics and simple for everyday wear. But you can clearly see that the 101 Demi is no natural falsies HAHA Ok, I bought these lashes in particular was because I wanted to dare myself in wearing something dark, bold, daring or rebel for a change. Spice up my life a bit by changing my makeup looks everyday. 

So with that in mind, I opted for these glamorous lashes. It is perfect for a glamorous night out or any special occasions. Plus, it shows great on the camera. And it really darkens up my eyes and overall look. 

Eh where did the lashes go? HAHA sorry, kita dah pakai dah :p Now this lash OMG BAPAK SUSAH NAK DAPAT! It was sold out every where! But I found them (I had two but the other one dah terrosakkan hmmm) at this really far away Boots yang tersorok from all the crowds. Found the pharmacy by accident as I was exploring the town and thank goodness they had some in stock! hehe. 

This one is pretty much everyone's favourite. So flattering, and it gives probably the most natural look. Pakai macam rasa tak pakai je. So easy to put on and so comfortable. And all the Ardell lashes are reusable for numerous of times depending on how you take care of it. 

This one is the Demi Lashes. So flattering kan?! And it goes well with every look! hehe love it!
I bought these in the UK but you can get them at selected Sephora across the nation hehe

Sonic Face Cleansing, Skin Peel and LED Phototherapy @ Premier Clinic

Salam everyone!
Last two weeks I visited Premier Clinic regarding my skin concerns. As many of you know, I am suffering from a continuous acne problem (pepandai je) since I was 16 mainly caused by my lifestyle choices. I mean seriously Izzah, grow up please! You are 21 (ehem), it is time to change! Change your lifestyle, change your skin and most importantly, change your appearances! So anyway, because of my acne problem, I sought professional help of Dr. Aarthi Maria, an experienced aesthetic practitioner who also trains and teacher new aesthetic doctors to take care of my problematic skin. There is no wrong in wanting good skin, right? 

I went to the branch in TTDI, KL. The parking was a bit hard to find but luckily, the clinic is surrounded by delicious restaurants so if you come with a friend, your friend could enjoy delicious meals or chill in the their Premier Lounge. The staffs were friendly and helpful. They even offered to take my pictures & videos for me. Hehe blogger memang forever perlukan bantuan orang untuk ambilkan our pictures hehehe. 

Seen here is me filling Dr Aarthi up with my skin and treatment histories. Then, she suggested a couple of treatments that I could choose to recover my skin to its proper condition and I chose to undergo Skin Peel treatment. She also suggested slimming treatments that I could choose but my main priority now is getting my skin fixed. She also threw in complimentary Sonic Face Cleansing to remove my makeup and LED Phototheraphy treaments to soothe my skin after the peel so it won't feel as dry or damaged. 

My first treatment was the Sonic Face Cleansing. They first removed my makeup and exfoliate my skin using the first machine you see there. It kind of has a "nilu" feel and sound to it, so they covered my ears to ensure I am able to relax and won't be bothered by the sound. Then, they cleansed my face using the second machine. This is to ensure the products absorb deeply into the pores. I love that it gave a cold feeling to the skin hehe always loved this treatment.

After that, Dr Aarthi performed the Chemical Peel treatment on me. She placed two types of acid on my skin (depending on your skin) such as Trichroloacetic Acid (TCA). She placed a very thin layer section by section. The mini fan is to cool down the face because the acid may cause you to feel tingle or slight burning. It is bearable. Nothing major, don't worry. Plus, I was in good hands of Dr Aarthi! hehe. This treatment is to gently remove the top layer of my skin so the scars nanti akan lessen. 

And lastly, I underwent the LED Phototheraphy treatment for a good 20 minutes. Because of the peel, my skin was dry and red all over. This treatment is to soothe and calm my skin as well as making it soft and smooth. And to complete the whole treatment, they put sunblock and moisturizer on my face hehe thank you! 

How is my skin so far? I am seriously amazed of how amazing my skin looked even after just one session. You can seriously see the difference on the spot. Even my boyfriend complimented how smooth and clean my skin was that night. And my acne has lessen! But of course, to achieve clear skin, I have to undergo the full cycle. And I cannot wait to undergo these treatments again and get rid of my scars and acne. I long for that perfect blank canvas face. Baru no shame to walk around with no makeup hehe. 

You can watch the full treatment video here or go to their official facebook page (here)!

Thank you Dr. Aarthi and Premier Clinic for having me and for performing these treatments to me; in the most 
relaxing and gentle way possible. If you guys have any skin concerns, do not hesitate to contact them!

Review: Lush Mask of Magnaminty

Salam everyone! 
Yay to me for coming back to the blogging arena, woots! It was not an easy decision but I do miss it. A lot. And since I am now in a better place and mood, I thought why not express it by blogging agian :D So for my comeback, eceh! I would like to introduce to you my current favourite mask, Mask of Magnaminty from Lush

Mask Of Magnaminty; Face and Body Mask

According to the website, it is "A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin. Easily smoothed over the skin, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. You can use this mask anywhere."

As you know, Lush is famous for using au natural ingredients and the products are freshly made by the workers. And because of that, you will only get to use the products over a certain period of time only. Meaning you will have to use them fast and to me, that is the only downfall as I am a hoarder and I cannot hoard this D: 

The texture of the mask is like a paste or something that you would dip your chips into. It has a strong divine minty vanilla + a little nutty smell to it but it is not overpowering but rather calming. Definitely something that you would picture yourself putting cucumber on your eyes with. 

This sucker is made out of 14 ingredients; Bentonite Gel, Kaolin, Honey, Talc, Organic Ground Aduki Beans, Glycerine, Evening Primrose Seeds, Peppermint Oil, African Marigold Oil, Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute, Limonene, Perfume, Chlorophyllin and Methylparaben.

I love that it makes me feel uber refresh and awake because of the cooling-minty sensation. It seems as though my troubles are just a tiny piece of garbage as it takes me into a different world with its calming, soothing and relaxing feel. Though it tingles, it does not irritate my sensitive skin and I love that I can use it on top of my rashes (when/if I have any at the time). Over time, I do notice that my spots are brightens and it helps to soothe my acne as well. It is moisturizing and helps with the redness too! Bottom line, an amazing product! My mask baru je expired and I need to get myself a new one! Baru pakai setengah :( 

Anyway, I bought it in UK so I do not how much it would cost here depending on the seller you choose I guess. For me, I guess, later nak search one from Carousell je. Or you girls ada any seller that you would recommend? Thanks ❤

Moving forward

Salam everyone! 
I am relieved that the year 2015 is finally coming to an end. So many bitter, horrible, devastating, torn, unforgettable, upsetting, unacceptable (and the list goes on and on) things happened to me this year that I wish to forget. Possibly forever, insyaAllah. Amin. I  do not wish to share as it is heartbreaking and I am still healing but I am willing to share all the memorable things happened along 2015 instead.

And also, that was pretty much the whole reason I stopped blogging because blogging makes me happy. Sharing beauty products with people make me happy. And I cannot blog when I am unhappy. 

1) Practicum
Oh how I loved those moments and if I had the chance to go back, I would. Mostly because I wanted to correct all the spelling errors that I taught you people. Especially the made up spelling that I gave because I was nervous and could not remember how to spell it and my internet was over HAHAHAHA SO SORRY EPSILON! D: But unfortunately, my teaching career started and ended there. I am not going to be a teacher. 

2) Australia
Seriously, I have nothing awful to say about it as it is the most beautiful and calming country I have ever been to (aside from Madina & Makkah). No filter is ever needed there, I swear! The scenery there was breathtaking. My aunt took us to a lot of historical ocean sides and it was just what I needed from the stressful work of practicum. Loved every moment and every scenery ugh so calming I want to escape there again!

Oh and did I tell you that I spent all my money on make-ups there? #noragrets

3) United Kingdom
Spent my entire Aidilfitri there. I think the last time I spent Aidilfitri abroad was back in either 2005, 2006 or 2007 in Makati, Philippines. A month in UK was actually my treat or reward for finishing degree. It was lovely at first but I could not enjoy it toward the end. The trip was when my whole life turned around and the Izzah who went to UK was not the same Izzah who came back. (notice my blog stopped while I was there?) But I do not want to get into that. Let's focus on the lovely moments! I stayed in Manchester for a month with my sister. I stayed in London for a few days before that. I went to Liverpool, Edinburgh, Lake District and a few more I could not remember. But for now, I got my mind locked on Manchester cause I missed the damn place. The house. The bus. The Starbucks. Boots, Superdrug, Space.Nk, Debenhams, Primark, Lobster and more! Gosh! All the luxury make-ups man. Cannot move on! 

4) Graduation
The moment yang di tunggu finally arrived and I thank God, my parents, my friends and my lecturers for helping me get through. I finally got my degree, woot! And honestly, I do not know what's up but I have yet to feel the "distant" or the "over" feeling yet like I still feel like I am in college and will be seeing my friends next semester. Haha pehal entah. Cause my friends all live far away from me and belum rasa kehilangan lagi so weird, right?

And thats pretty much the major highlights of my 2015. 

I am going to start working soon, in an office and I hope, I really hope that my life would be much different and far better next year than this year. It would be a cliche if I say that I wanna start fresh next year but really, I do wanna start fresh and build a whole different life and create a far better and well deserved happy ending with my loved ones. 

Wish me luck xx

p/s; the blog is back jeng jeng jeng

Review: Horien Eye Secret 3 Months Coloured Contact Lens

Hello loves! ❤ How are you Ramadhan and Raya so far? I hope it's been a blast, still. I'm in England at the moment and isn't it nice travelling with the things you love? I had a hard time choosing things to bring, like makeup and skincare. I had to leave out a lot which was hard because I'm staying here for a month but I couldn't say no to squeezing all these goodness inside my luggage :p Besides, who wouldn't want to look all-fabuloso and glamour during this festive season am I right? ;)

Before I go into details, let me tell you a little bit about Horien! Horien is one of the largest contact lens manufacturing companies in the world. The lenses are manufactured in Taiwan, and that calls for a quality affirmation!

Horien carries contact lenses from daily wear to monthly and even coloured contacts! With the slogan;
"Feel the world through your eyes"
You will definitely look your absolute best with Horien Eye Secret Sweetheart and Fantasy Contact Lenses!

Starting with the Sweetheart 2-tone contact lenses, this series comes with 4 stunning colours!
Madrid Grey, Kiev Blue, Vancouver Pink & Berlin Gold! Yes, Pink and Gold! I know, PINKKKK AND GOOOLD!!!

And here are the two contact lenses from Fantasy series; Rome Grey, New York Green!
Did you know that all of these contact lenses from both series is a 3-month disposable colour contacts? Yes, right? Ain’t nothing better than rocking these contacts for 3 months long! I love the 1-year disposable contacts but let’s face it, 1-year? I don’t believe in that plus, there is always the hygienic issue so I would always opt for the 3-month disposable ones. 

These contacts also come with 38% water content and Bio-molecule 3D Wrap (BMW) colouring method which are safe, clear and beautiful! I mean seriously, have you seen the contacts? They are beautiful in both colours and designs! And here is a straightforward info for those who are lazy to read hehehe you know, you know :p

Eye Secret 38% 3-Month disposable color contact lenses 
Comes with two series; Sweetheart (four 2-tone colours) & Fantasy (two 3-tone colours) 
BC: 8.7mm 
DIA: 14.2mm (big eyes) *a plus!* 
38% water content 
 Bio-molecule 3D Wrap (BMW) colouring method + special designs 
Meet beauty & health concern 
Product with Certificate recognition

Oh and did you know they are having a promotion of;
Buy 1 get 1 free (38% 3 months disposable color contact lenses + 360ml Fresh solution)

Besides that, Horien also carries 38% daily and monthly soft contact lenses as well as 55% daily and monthly soft contact lenses which are the ones I have up there. Made out of Methafilcon A, this monthly soft contact lens carries 55% water content with BC of 8.6mm and DIA of 14.2mm! Not forgetting that it has HD Visual experience which means it can avoid visual aberration, ensuring visual acuity even in dark environment! :o

I honestly never tried soft contact lens before and I’m glad I did! I’m never a fan of wearing glasses as I’m a makeup addict and my cheeks are just too damn high and big that it actually interferes with any type of glasses/shades I’m wearing leaving behind ugly glasses marks under my eyes. Hence, why I never bothered wearing one when in fact, I do need to wear glasses HAHA. But after trying this, I’m seriously in love and might even consider just wearing them for the rest of my life (over) but seriously, maybe it’s just me but it’s so comfortable on me that I don’t feel dizzy or whatever :o

Guess what? I also brought along with me these two eye solutions;
Eye Secret Fresh Solution (left) and Eye Secret Multi-Purpose Solution (right)

The Fresh Solution gives a long term moisture which increases comfort. It also contains Antibacterial properties while effectively deproteinizes your contact lenses. The Multi-Purpose Solution on the other hand, contains intensive moisture which improved water holding to keep it moisturize and stay comfortable all day. What unique about it is that it gives a fresh new experience with its large Sodium Hyaluronate molecules that locks water on the surface of the lens while the small ones filtrate into the lens to supplement water. On top of that awesome goodness, it also provide all in one protection against bacteria and protein deposits. 

Believe me when I say this, the 3-Month disposable contact lenses are by far the easiest and most comfortable contacts I have ever tried, no lie! I often get trouble when trynna put the contacts on my eyes with other brands but I got through it with just two tries on my first try with these. It’s easy to put on, it matches me well, not too big and not too small. It also doesn’t irritate my eyes and make it red. And the best part is, I went shopping the whole day while I was in London (now I’m staying in Manchester) and surprisingly, I only felt dizzy around 10 hours of wearing them HAHA an achievement for me okay because usually I can only last for 3-4 hours HAHAHA.

Here are something you don’t want to miss!

Buy 3 free 2 
Purchase 3 boxes of 55% Monthly soft clear contact lens you
 can enjoy another extra 1 box & 60ml solution for free!

Free Mini Lens case box 
with every purchase of 38% Monthly soft contact lens

Review: Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Hello loves!  This is my #1 face powder that I cannot live without right now. I still love my 
M.A.C Skin finish natural but in the drugstore range, Rimmel Stay Matte is my bae 

"A powder that helps to minimize the appearance of pores, 
while giving a smooth, shine free finish lasting up to 5 hours"

Bought two shades, Transparent & Sandstorm to suit my two characters HAHA. Transparent shade is when I feel like 
being a fair-y princess and Sandstorm is when I feel like being a latino girl or when I want a more natural look. 

I love that the powder comes with Rimmel pattern logo on it. It's adorable! But it makes me sayang to just it and destroy the logo but as you can see, I already hit the pan on Transparent. It's my go-to powder and I cannot live without it. Sandstorm is a bit neglected as it does not suit me well, tad bit dark for me. Tad bit dark for the whole latino scene :p 

The feel of the powders are super soft and fine. Silky feel gitu. And it goes on smooth and natural on your skin. It does not quite provide extra coverage like my M.A.C but I find that with a compact, buffer-like brush, it gives the extra umph! to your finishing look! I love using it with my Ecotools Bronzer brush 

Likes: Pretty much everything about it! It makes my makeup look so good and it lasts pretty long too. I do need to blot 1-2 times throughout the day but it does not bother me much as it does my makeup look worse, cakey or powdery. It makes me look good all the time. 

Dislikes: The packaging. It's cute and all but it would be nice if I could slide in my puff in there as opposed to bringing a separate pouch to place my puff to avoid it getting dirty. 

And again, can someone please explain why Rimmel was taken down in Malaysia? 
We need these powders up and ready on the shelves when we run out of it!

Price: RM 20-30 (depending on sellers) 
$AUD 12.95 @ Priceline 

Where to get it in Malaysia? Here are a few of my personal insta-seller favourites
or check Carousell!
