COVO matte magic lipstick review | Icy Coral | Malaysia

Looking for an affordable yet high quality lipstick?
You may consider this into your bucket list.

Honestly from my first glance, I never thought of getting any thing from this brand, maybe because I just had too many makeup and feel like saving my money from buying more makeup.

Let me saying it clearly because I don't want people to misunderstand my words + my chronology on how I ended up buying COVO Lipstick. 

1) Never feel like buying it because of the retail price, never heard of the brand, never heard any review about it, therefore, I never thought of spending my money into this brand.

2) Yes, I have seen this brand threw few events, launches and so on ...few of my blogger friends attended the events, speaking a lot of good things about it, but none of them attract my attention to give it a try. WHY?
The only reason I don't buy because they promoting something "normal", "regular" and I feel there's nothing special about it until I can spend my MONEY into it. Most of them didn't review the lipsticks. Besides that, most of their reviews are full of selfies, nothing interesting and cover more into events instead of products.

3) Innanie's review and Layla's post attract my attention. They reviewed this lipstick with the unique feature; mirror. The mechanism that I have been searching for ages!
4) SOLD OFF by these two ladies, I went to the counter at Sunway Pyramid, they had an amazing deal, mark down to RM 22.50 from RM 45.

5) TRIED, FALL IN LOVE, and it's been my favorite lipstick til then. 

Texture and pigmentation

The texture is soft and buttery, moist, glides smoothly onto the lips even though it is MATTE. It has decent vanilla smell almost similar to MAC lipstick! Seriously, the quality of this product is amazing. Even the texture is beatable to MAC! Forget the RM 70 MAC Bullet, give this a try cause it is worth to be given attention.
 Even though it is matte, yet if in MAC collection, the texture would be more classified as satin, which is creamy, very pigmented, with medium moisturizing level between moist and matte as well as smooth application.

I would like to try other types too so that I could compare the texture with MAC, maybe next time.

Color description
It has warm peachy- coral color that suits on all Asian complexion from fair to dark.

Color Choice
They have limited of color choice. I wish the matte finish has bright and bold colors so that it won't smudge and stay on placed. The moisturising type of lipstick hold variety of bold and bright colors; red, plum, hot pink whilst the matte type has opposite colors; nude and light pink family.
I prefer red color to be in matte-finish instead of moisturizing finish because it won't smudge all over-the-place. 


This is the most interesting part, interesting enough until I've been using it until quarter of bullet because of this. It has my full dream packaging! Few months before been introduced to this lipstick (basically know them from my friends: Innanie Ariffin and Layla)

LOVE: The mirror, square classy packaging, the single stone (I wish the stone is in white).
HATRED: The logo ( honestly, I found the star looks cute and doesn't suits with the packaging and the lipstick personality :P) .

I can't blame the Logo since it is their company profile identity, but I just wish they change it! Make it more elegance and sophisticated.

That's all my simple review. 
Thank you for reading. 

in the website:
"This is a creamy matte, colour-rich lipstick with silk-like, satin finish. Covo’s Matte Magic Lipstick is enriched with vitamin E and active ingredients for moisturising, nourishing and improves the depth of fine lines and wrinkles on the lips.The well-balanced formula provides comfort with hydrating & moisturising benefits, yet stays matte the whole day."

L'occiaten Ar Le Sien Ne Handcream Review | Malaysia

L'occitane is mainly popular with their body care, starting from head to toe including skincare. Especially the handcream, I have one
honestly I got this handcream from Butterfly Project Christmas gift box and willing to do a review by myself since it is highly requested from you guys and friends.

"L'occitane lotion okay ke?" , "L'occitane handcream apa yang best?", "what do you think about L'occitane products?".

Wanna know the answers? Silakan Baca ye? 
This travel size (10ml) of hand-cream is travel-friendly and doesn't consume any space. Small pea amount of the product is enough to soften the hands. This small tube of hand-cream could lasts up to 2 months (estimation period) based on the number of usage.

It is in cream formed (LOL obviously!) , the consistency is pretty thick yet it absorbs decently and fast onto the skin. The dense texture absorbs onto the hands and makes the hands soft, smooth with no oily greasy residue.  Comfortable with perfect moisturising level for us living in Malaysia with high humidity and oily skin. So far, only L'occitane and Evelyn & Crabtree are my favorite hand-cream brands. These two brands are my favorite and I keep using them until the last squeeze.
Great for my dry skin and it is also not annoying, not greasy and no oily residues, that is most important elements when it comes to hand-cream.

Small, compact, screwed top, no leaking, looks exclusive and the floral coral make it looks girly and elegant at the same time as the color combinations are sweet and pleasant. The design is not like the typical boring classy L'occitane design. Opsie! hehe

Can you see the symbol? A jar with 12M word stated in it? That means, the product can be used within 12 months after opened. 

It's really hydrating and moisturizing. Worth to give it a try and investing it.

It has delicate floral scent, bearable, not too strong. Great for those who doesn't really like strong fragrance (like me!).  The scent could last on the hands up to 3 hours without rinse/ wash.
Thank you for reading. 

That's all for my simple short review on this hand-cream.

See you in the next post! 
You can shopping online at their website!

My Earrings Collection. Addiction. LOVISA, VINCCI |Malaysia

Everyone has their own addiction, so do I. I am currently addicted to earrings and clothes, most probably due to what I am doing now. I just started working and to push myself going to work (boost my mood), I have made a decision for not skipping makeup and dressing up. Never stop makeup even late to work! I will put all the needed makeup into a bag and bring it together with me . I always put my makeup in the car, on the way to work. 

Besides putting makeup, I also love to groom myself daily, before going to work, My office outfits are normally boring as I need to wear formal attire, therefore to spice up my look, I normally wear stand out earrings to get a presentable look. The earrings just change my overall look. 

After a month working, this is my overall earrings collection. Almost half of the collection are new. I have other old small studs earrings stored into another tray, I didn't take any photo of it. 

So far, the focused earrings are my ultimate favorites, Every time I want to dress up yet not too overly dress, I would pick up this earrings as the design is simple and it matches most of my outfits. 

Most of my earrings are from LOVISA, VINCCI and the latest store I went was Times Square. I went to Times Square and found out a lot of pretty accessories there including beautiful statement necklace at RM 10 to RM 15. 

The second row from the bottom earrings ( flower with pearl design) are from Times Square @ RM 10/ pair. I am not really sure whether the earrings are durable and wear resistant, but I believe it could lasts in long time if it been keep properly. 

The classic look of earrings are also my favorites, most reachable earrings. Normally I would wear them on when my outfits are more into classy, elegant or even when I am wearing Baju Kurung/ Traditional Clothes. 

I bought the necklace from Times Square and the earrings are from LOVISA. They do match each other kan?

Thank you for reading my syok sendiri earrings collection. So, you guys ada current addiction? What is it? Tell me! DO you have your own earrings collection too? Tell me! I would love to hear it too!

Shizens Lip Tattoo Review and swatches| Malaysia

Lips play very important role especially in presenting our grooming and character. It is does influenced our mood of the day. Sometimes we would feel like wearing nothing on the lips except for lip balm cause colored lip balm sometimes gives too bright and bold color. 

If you have faced this situation before, then you might wanting to try this lip tattoo. 

Summarize review on Lip Tattoo

  • It gives subtle color / hint of color to the lips.
There's no much difference on the color, it just enhance the original lips color. Great for those who loves sheer lip products/ light lips color/ natural lips. 
  • The color changes according to the heat of blood.  It is very very subtle. one to two shade redder than the actual lips color. 
I found out the color changed depending on 
  • Doesn't feel sticky
No sticky texture, the product absorbs to the skin and at the same time gives a little bit of moisture into it. 
  • It doesn't irritates lips.
I don't feel burning or irritating after using this lip products for several times. 
  • Fragrance-free
No strange  scent, a total fragrance-free. My point of view, it can be used for sensitive lips. However, please try it, partially on your skin first. 
  • It is hydrating and has light-weight texture.
Feel comfortable and it does moisturised the lips. I didn't need lipbalm before applying it. 

  • Long-lasting product
The product can be also defines as lip tint/ tinted gloss/ lip stain. The product absorbs to the skin and lasts pretty long on the lips even after eating and drinking. 

Let's talk about PACKAGING.

I like the packaging so much! It is simple, elegant and looks luxury. The rose gold cap made it looks high end. I wish all makeup products change their packaging to rose gold!
Nothing special about the weight of the product, similar to any regular lip gloss packaging weight. I wish it has more weight thus it would look more luxury , complement with the price.

It has doe-foot applicator to give precise application.

Ingredients of the products, if you are sensitive with any element in the ingredients, better get a doctor advise before trying it on. 

This is the changes and color differences that can be seen after a minute. 
Left: there's still white residue and the color hasn't completely changed. 
Right: The color changed depending on the body temperature/ our own skin blood heat because when my sister applied it on her skin, it looks much darker and redder. 

please excuse my gross bare face, yucks! I've experimented it at home and of course I do not wear makeup during the rest time, free-from makeup  a.k.a medicating time (kononnya!). ok, see you in the next post.

Price: RM 168 (8ml) full size

Sunday 4 January 2015


Here we are, facing the reality of 2015, a new life, a new year to kick off.  We are getting older and what I know, we need to be serious and plan well for the days, make it productive, splash the days with multi-tasks, varies of works and make sure we work hard while we are young and able to work. I am pretty sure most of us have forgotten our 2014 resolutions till did not remember whether the list has completed or not. I lost mine but  still remembered few things listed in my 2014.

Last year, I had few lists in my mind.
1) Get a job , a permanent job (done)
2) kick off a business (done)
3) pursue study in MBA ( bring forward to 2015)
4) Go travel, every year I need to set a place and travel,  visit a new country. (done, went to NYC)
5) Makeup artist , expand, learn and sharpen my skills. (at least, there's improvement, but I won't stop, knowledge is wide, need to bring my makeup skill to international level. Bring forward to 2015)
6) Savings of RM 10,000 ( not yet accomplished!). So, need to bring this to 2015
7) Get a new iPhone ( initially, I wanted to get iPhone 5s at the beginning of 2014 year, unfortunately, due to NYC trip, I was not able to get the phone in hand. However, end of 2014 is a lucky period to me, FINALLY I am able to upgrade my phone from 4s to 6 with my own money and pass the old phone to my dad. I did not use any single cents of my parents money. Indeed, I gave a part of my income to my mom ( blogging, makeup job as well as salary)- accomplished! 
8) Active in blogging and youtube channel. Well, honestly I am a bit upset with myself for this. Frustrated for not blogging daily. Booo to myself! Boooo! 

Have you get your own planner? How does it looks like? Show me! haha.
If you haven't get any planner for 2015, it is still not too late to get a new one, either purchasing it or do it yourself.
All you need is "google", "print" and creativity.
I chose this glitter-black design planner as I wish it could boost my mood in planning my exciting days and of course with a high hope of being more productive in blogging. 

This planner will be full with my blogging, makeup , Makeup Crime and my personal activities. I have another planner at the office that is already full with my office works schedule.
I got this Planner from "MYSALE" at the priced of RM 35 and the original price was RM 59. It is still available in TYPO, go, get it. It is worth! I think the price is still RM 59 because the promotion price is already over;  Promo only for christmas til 1st January. My friend got it on 2nd January and the price back to original price of RM 59 . Sad, but as I said, it is worth! Plan your life well, Time is money , DAY IS GOLD.

In other hand, if you got DIY planner, you may decorate it with washie tape / colorful tape, fabric tape, sticker and many more. I did decorate my planner with varies of colorful pens as well as tapes. All these photos in this entry are old photos, before fully-decorated. Now the planner is already changed, will show it to you guys one day. haha ( Im too excited decorating my planner) I PUT THE BLAME ON ALL THE BLOGGERS, especially Sabrina Tajudin and kak Newrulefarah Iskandar 

It comes together with a match-pen , since mine is in black therefore the attached pen is in black ink too! It is so convenient! 

The planner also has few side pockets and slots and I stored all of my memorable photos from kak Sabby wedding , gegurl photo and a piece of sticker.
Besides stickers, I also slot in few of important memos and papers in it.

I got this sticker from Tammy as a gift from Singapore for helping out Butterfly Project. :)

Okay, lets head over to the pages. 

The first page of the planner is Personal Information page.

Second page is the one year calendar page.

Then followed by reference calendar of 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The next page is worldwide PUBLIC HOLIDAY. Can you see MALAYSIA public holiday? hehe. I am so excited!

Followed by Contact Page, I normally will put important contacts in here since it just only allocate 2 pages for contacts. 

The "not so important pages".  Well, we can google for the measurement. Wish the planner change this pages to contacts/ notes. 

Same as previous pages, but it's kinda interesting to know all these. 

Let's see how did I decorated and write my daily plan.

I've been set and scheduled my blogging and video plan wisely. The only thing I need is COMMITMENT.

Stick few stickers and colorful pen to differentiate the activities & etc.

I am planning to monitor and analyse myself, see the result at the end of the month.

For the daily activities section, I put some descriptions and details as well as any paid bills/ money so that I am able to monitor my money flow. 

Love this Note section for every month's notes. I wrote all the MUST PAY bills, present budget and etc. Not to forget, WISHLIST!

I also pasted some of leftover cute-shape paper . Need to print more cute designs!

To recognise PUBLIC HOLIDAY, I highlight the box with yellow color so that I could clearly see when is the holiday. Who doesn't love holiday? !

Besides that, for the special birthday box, I stamped it on with a butterfly-shape. CUTE KAN?

 Some of my 2015 resolutions. Malu lah, suka ati aku la kan nak tulis apa. hahaha.

My current wishlist, I wish I could get another 5-drawer , ALEX DRAWER from IKEA as well as a new gloss table top. 
Overall I am very satisfied with my pick and decided to continue buying planner from Typo due to reasonable price, organised, simple , attractive packaging, and neat. I have no other complains except for one single request: to get few extra note sheets so that I could write my Bill, Track my saving money and many more. Yet, this planner is more than enough, I just need this simple planner to organise my life! If you want to save money, DO YOUR OWN PLANNER. I'm pretty sure you gonna love it too. Spill your ideas on it, be yourself, your planner is reflecting your own personality.

Wishing you HAPPY NEW YEAR guys! Muah!
