Review: Maybelline's All New The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara


Name: Maybelline New York The Falsies Big Eyes Volume Express Mascara
Price: RM45.90
Usage Purpose: Big Eyes Effect, Lift Upper Lashies & Magnify Lower Lashses
Avaibility: All Major Pharmacies

Well Maybelline's new creation might just solve your problem.
The picture below is taken from Maybelline Malaysia's Instagram

With a mascara to solve every girls problems, Maybelline has now created 
The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara.
This mascara is promising Bigger Wide Open Eyes

Let's see either The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara really works.
So I'm gonna do a comparison with the current eyeline I'm using right now.
Maybelline New York The Rocket Volume Express which now is my current favourite.

Don't be surprised cause this waterproof mascara consist of 2 brushes.
One for the Upper Lashes and one for the Lower Lashes

The Upper Lashes Brush
Fuctions to pushes lashes up and wide.
To my surprise this type of brush actually made me apply mascara quite easy without a lot of smudge.
And it did push up my lashes without me having to force it to.

The Lower Lashes Mini Brush
Functions to grab and coat every tiny lash
And I am very impressed with this brush, cause it was damn more easy to apply mascara on my lower lash without having a lot of smudge.
The lower brush is just amazing for me cause I didn't even have to cover up any smudge with powder anymore. It worked in one try, but of course I applied 2 and 3 more. LOL

And this is the brush for The Rocket Volume Express.
Well I still love this mascara cause its light and not too sticky but for the lower lashes it's still a failure for me, so this means I'm now falling in love with the new big eyes.
Feeling unfaithful. HEHE

So earlier I said this review is suppose to be a comparison.
If The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara really did work you guys would already have guessed.
I used The Falsies Big Eyes on one eye and The Rocket Volume Express on another.
Try determining which eyes is which.

So have you guessed it?
If the mascara did a good job you guys would have picked
Well for me I kinda saw my right, which from your side is the Left one slightly is bigger than the other eye. So for me the mascara is doing its job properly.
A big plus for me cause I hate wearing false lashes and love the way how these falsies are making my eyes looking bigger as natural as possible.

Till then peeps.

L'Oreal Paris Miss Selfridge MatteAbout You Contest

If you girls are totally into beauty and cosmetics of course you guys would have heard about the #matteaboutyou contest
And somehow I got to be 1 of the top 10 finalist for the running to be Miss Selfridge and win a trip for 2 o Paris.
OMG... Parisssss... 

Honestly I never expected that I would be chosen for the 2nd round.
I entred the contest just for fun at first and of course I loved the Matte Magic Powder.

So anyways, when I knew I was selected for round 2 a first I didn't believe it,
I thought that it was somekind of a joke or someone wanted to prank me or even maybe Loreal had some technical system problem or something.
Well, I'm not trying to bring myself down but this is how I actually felt.
This contest is basically of course is about beauty and well beauties that usually are selected for these kinds of competitions are of course the ones that looks like the front cover of a magazine.

At first I really thought maybe I should just back out rather than himuliate myself.
Cause round 2 I had to compete for a Miss Selfridge look which I certainly knew that I would have a major problem dressing myself.
But then I thought again if I backed out, would this show that I myself have no self confidence in me at all? What if I maintain this kind of attitude, will it cause a darker future for me cause I show lack in confidence? Well I tried to be optimistic and put myself to the challenge.

We were given about 3 or 4 days before round 2 to come out with our look. Some of the contestants went to Miss Selfridge's store themselves at Mid Valley to try out some of their outfits but since I had a busy weekend I never had a chance to head down to Mid Valley before the competition.

So of course the results were disastrous for me.
Imagine 10min of choosing an outfit, plus Miss Selfridge is very new to me and another plus is that I'm wearing a hijab of course I needed to choose something properly covered.
Just thank goodness I prepared every inch of inner I could think of to fully cover my body parts. For those who wears hijab would totally understand this feeling right?

And I owe a lot to Shivani, it was the first time I met her and she is awesomely very friendly and helpful. Since I had a lot of struggle choosing an outfit she was kind enough to help me out.
She surely has my full support for winning this contest.

Okay, so after 10 min, we had our outfits in our hands so there was 30 min to get ready with make up.
I thought 30 min would be enough, but no. I was the last one done actually.
First I had a problem with my skirt, well obviously that everyone was tall and I'm like the shortest there, so my skirt dah terlebih panjang and I looked like a penguin.
So they tell me I could change into their pants, but what they have is skinny jeans like the really tight ones. And I'm like crying whyyyyyy... Jeans dis of course cantik, but I really can't wear it.
First cause I'm not skinny and second cause its not a proper attire for me.
So they let me where my own jeans.

The second problem came for make up.
Goshhh... I really had a hard time doing my make so I after I applied foundation and My all new Matte Magic Powder I put on my hijab.

There came the serious problem where my hijab was misbehaving and I couldn't get it to turn out the right way, and I was being pressured by the time which was almost 15 min left.
When I finally got my hijab slightly how I wanted to, I had like about 5 min to get my make up done. 
That time my hands where shaking and I did a horrible touch job doing so.
And time was over, but I still was struggling with make up.

And then shoes, I haven't put them on yet and the 3rd task was about to start.
The last task was the task which I thought I was gonna have a complete breakdown.
Padahal tangkap gambar sendiri je pun.
But somehow it turned really horrible, I was a mess and I had a price tag stuck on my but.
It was the most uncomfortable feeling ever when I had to take pictures where there was a lot of people walking around.
The picture taking did not turn out so well, I looked extra fat. 
And it took me more than 15 minutes to get the right photo taken.

Well, when all that was over we had a group photo.
Here are the 10 finalist and they all look gorgeous!
And for sure I felt a bit not belonging there since all of the rest were like tall and skinny.
While I was the complete opposite.
(Ohh please Mira, get a grip.)
Okay okay, I don't look that bad do I?

Well at least I had a nice experience from the competition.
Plus so loving the goodies that L'Oreal gave us.

And with all these goodies, this MATTEABOUTYOU look was created
So what do you guys think?
I would be really pleased and grateful if you guys would help out and vote for me.
Not anything hard but just to like my photo below at L'Oreal Paris Facebook Page

Thank you so much for your support.
Till then peeps

Maigaadd!! Thank you so much to The Butterfly Project for this opportunity.
Well not everyday that I have a chance to smudge really expensive mud on my face.

Have anyone of you heard about GlamGlow before?
Well to tell you a secret, most of the hollywood celebs are a big fan of this.
Why? Well that's the question. It seems just like a normal face mask, but that was before I tried it out.

For this review, I was given out to try the GlamGlow Supermud Cleaning Treatment

There are so many right?
All this in just one product, macam tipu je. That's what I thought at first.
And then I tried it out

So below I have a video for you guys when I tried the GlamGow for the first time
Just before I tried the mud mask I googled a bit on the proper wear to use a mud mask.
Since its a really expensive mask I wanted full use of it
So as you see in the video below is what I found from my research

So sorry for the poor lighting, since I took the video with my macbook and I have really insuficent lighting in my room.
And for the background music I left my itunes on while I shot the video, so the exactly was no editing for the background music. And so sorry for the heartbroken songs, I havn't updated my song list for a really long time. LOL

Ok! Back to the point about GlamGlow
So as you can see first I washed my face with warm water, so that my pores open up and make it easy to remove them.
Then I applied toner, to make sure that my face was really clean
Then only did I apply the mud mask.
The reason why I used a foundation brush was to make sure I applied the mud mask evenly. Surely didn't want to waste a bit of it. Its expensive stuff!
As you can see in the video it dried really quickly
Well the description of the product said to apply it for 5 to 20min, but I washed my face after 10 min because there was an article saying that applying mud mask too long could make it suck up not only pores but also some good stuff, damnn.. I forgot the exact thing, but the main point is it ain't that good. Haaaaa... Sorry I'm not helping much.

So as you can see in the picture above, a close up on how the mud mask works.
It surely did tighten my face and hardened. 
And somehow I loved the feeling of it on my face

And the results were stunning even on my first try. Cause I had one great big fat pimple just about to grow on my cheek before I used it. You know the one that sometimes stings when it tends to grow larger. Then after I washed my face I saw that the pimple has been reduced and it didn't seem to sting anymore. Even more pores has reduced. My face felt as light as ever, it was a sensation feeling that my face is deep clean.

So then a tried it for the second time and the effects were better, my pimple scars seems to be less and less visible. And the clean feeling on my face feels just so awesome, I wanted to wear this everyday, but menangis la pocket if I do so.
The price for this is totally so expensive for me, but the results are just stunning. I have to put this on my wish list. No wonder Hollywood celebs are crazy over this.
I'm just lucky that I had a chance to apply some on my face.

Till then peeps.

RM7.90 (550g refill pack)

Avaibility : All the leading hypermarkets, supermarkets and pharmacies nationwide

Shokubutsu is one of my favourite brands when it comes to bathing soap
I've used it since school and my family also uses it till now.
The all favourite that we love to use is the Orange Peel and Green Tea
But now they have added more chicoes to choose!

The new Shokubutsu Japan Original’s Triple Power of Plants has been created from years of profound technology advancement by researchers of Lion Japan. The breakthrough Japan Original formula provides complete care by gently cleansing, restoring and nourishing skin. It further promises users 100 per cent plant cleansing ingredients for natural mild and gentle cleansing, 100 per cent plant restoration for lively radiance skin and 100 per cent plant nourishment for healthy skin.

Spoiling consumers for choice and providing them with a formulation that suits their individual skin needs, the new Shokubutsu Japan Original Triple Power of Plants comes in five unique variants from refreshing Orange Peel sensation to the relaxing Green Tea Harmony.

What I love about the Sakura Whitening of course is the scent.
It smells really great and when I recieved the package itself, even before unwrapping I could smell the awesome scent. Even my bathroom smells a whole lot like this shower gel.
And this is made from organic ingrediants.
The one thing I didn't like is the packaging for this 220g bottle.
Why? Well it's lid can't shut tight. Its loose and I don't think it won't survive travelling with this bottle.
Even when I received the package, the soap was already spilled throughout the whole package, thank goodness the box was waterproof so I could was the soap of the package.

The texture of the soap is really light, almost like water already but still enough to produce much bubbles. Surely after each shower I feel really refreshed and the best part is I smell really good too.

So below are some other types of The Triple Power Plants Shokubutsu offer

Floral Delight
Iris Oil
Soft & Supple skin
Sakura Whitening
Sakura Leaf
Fair & Flawless skin
Orange Peel Sensation
Orange Peel Oil
Firm & Vibrant skin
Green Freshness
Grape Seed Oil
Revitalise & Shine skin
Green Tea Harmony
Green Tea Leaf
Rejuvenate & Renew skin

Right now my favaourite one is still Green Tea, but all of the just smells really great.
You  might find it difficult enough to choose your favourite.
