Haul from KL #1

I actually had a list for my makeup to buy before I went for my holiday. I read reviews and watched Youtube before deciding on which ones to buy. My list includes MAC and NYX from Sephora.

For MAC, I wanted to buy two lipsticks and two blushes and still contemplating on whether to get the paint pots. I do love cream eyeshadows but this one is on a pricier side.

  • MAC blush in Fleur Power (RM78/6g). MAC describes this as soft bright pinkish-coral. Sorry about the picture, it looks more coral than pink in the pan. This blush is rather pigmented so have to use a light hand to apply. I wanted to get Desert Rose as but the SA did not know its existence, instead she said its not available and I believe her! >.<
  • MAC lipstick in Syrup (RM68). When I reached MAC in Pavilion, I asked for MAC lipstick in Creme in Your Coffee (cremesheen) and Syrup (lustre). However, I was overwhelmed with Creme in Your Coffee so I decided to buy Syrup only which MAC describes as cloudy pink. To me, this is definitely my-lips-but-better kind of lipstick. I can see that I'll be using this a lot.

I'm glad that Sephora in Malaysia recently launched NYX in their store. From reviews that I have read, I got rough ideas for the prices (cheaper!) and items available.

  • NYX blush in Mocha and Spice (RM26). Mocha is describes as matte mid tone pink while Spice is matte mauve but it has tiny silver sparkles in it. I wanted to get just one, Dusty Rose unfortunately it was not available. The other colour available was Cinnamon, while the other colour listed were Pinky and Peach. I hope to get Dusty Rose and Peach the next time. :P
  • NYX lipstick in B52 - soft mauve pink (RM19). They have a lot of colours available and listed at the counter. However I was only interested in something brownish pinkish/ or reddish because I want to try the colour that looks similar to MAC Creme in Your Coffee. I compared with NYX Tea Rose that I have and tested few other colours including Heredes, Lola/ Lala(?) and a couple more which I have forgot. I'm really happy that I bought this one. This looks pretty on my lips (a bit dark but I'm okay with).

  • Chanel Rouge Coco in 05 Mademoseille (RM95). This has got to be my biggest splurge in makeups. I wanted to get Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy (the colour is really pretty and I'm going to get this next time!!!) unfortunately they did not have it instock so I had to resort to this. Among the few that I tried, this one caught my attention. When I swatched it, it looks lighter than NYX B52 and a little bit pinkish. I have yet to use this :P


  1. Nice haul! Would like to see an FOTD post using them :)

    1. Thank you :) I never do a FOTD post though. *malu* Hehe

  2. I love the Nyx blush & Chanel lipstick! Do review them! :)

    1. I have used both blushes once and also the lipstick. I'll wait a little bit longer before I can review ;) So far, it's really pretty :D

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
