Hair Extensions

Have you ever wonder why some women have long gorgeous locks? I believe some of them treat their hair with special care - from using serums, hair masks, shampoo, conditioner, hair vitamins name it all. But I just find it ridiculous to spend money to those that doesn't deliver exactly what the product promise and it might just take a lot of time and efforts.

Good thing, we have this so-called technology that helps us women to have full, gorgeous locks that is within our budget and easy to achieve. Let me introduce Seekhair. Seek hair is an online shop that caters hair extensions, weaves/wigs and other hair related tools that is based in UK.

According to Seekhair:
Hair extensions are a very popular trend today, offer versatility that real hair cannot give -- add length, shape, style, and color in minutes! Picking our 100% real best quality  human hair extensions online will likely be the smartest decision you may make. Plenty of hair extensions on sale are at high quality and incredible low price from Hair Extension UK. Buy something from us and enjoy your online shopping!


I've been checking their site and I must say that their products seems in high quality (texture, color & sizes) .  Try to check out their website, they have plenty of products to offer and all information with regards to FAQ's, shipping, wholesaling, product matching and other stuffs are well provided in the site. And, oh they also have customer service if you want to speak with the experts.

In the near future, I would love to order some of their hair clip-ons for my hair tutorial that will be coming soon.

Thank you for reading.

First Impression: Clarisonic Mia



The website says:
Our smallest Sonic Skin Cleansing System, the one-button, one-speed Mia comes in a variety of colors and fits your active lifestyle – offering beautiful skin at home or on-the-go.


Kit Includes:

  • Clarisonic Mia
  • Universal Voltage Charger
  • Sensitive Brush Head 
  • 1 oz. trial size Refreshing Gel Cleanser

Beautiful Skin Begins With Cleaner Skin
Traditional methods of cleansing don’t get your skin as clean as you’d think. Using Sonic Technology, Clarisonic’s patented micro-massage motion works within skin’s natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind--leaving skin softer, smoother and more beautiful.
  • Cleanses 6x better than with your hands alone in just 60 seconds
  • Works with skin, not against it, to gently massage away impurities trapped within pores
  • Prepares skin for better absorption of creams, serums and moisturizers
  • Gentle enough to use 2x a day

My First Impression:
The first thing I noticed is that the clarisonic mia itself is heavy and sturdy. The brush that it came with is actually soft and feels good to the skin. Prior to usage of mia, I can tell instantly that it cleansed my face very well. My skin felt MUCH cleaner, smoother and softer.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid Review


I am a fan of MAC especially with their eyeshadows and lipsticks. I never get the chance to test their foundation for some unknown reason. But recently I went to MAC and I was actually looking for a blush but when I saw their line of foundation, I thought that I need to buy one and test it for myself since I read somewhere that it's a good foundation. So, I bought it.

Now, I have been using this foundation for almost a month now and I can say that I am truly impressed with this. This foundation provides medium - heavy coverage and it has this natural matte finish which suits for my combination - oily skin. A little drop of this foundation goes a long way and it is easy to blend  and what surprise me most, I did not break out from using this.

What I don't like from this is, it doesn't include a pump and the texture of this one is really thick..
But overall, I like this product and would repurchase again. However if I emptied this, I might try other foundation like the Nars sheer glow or the Chanel Vitalumiere.

Etude House False Lashes


I got this few days ago and I was intrigued by it since Ana (anavictorin0) from youtube mentioned that she wanted to try this out for the longest time and she used this for one of her fotd. And I personally think that it look great on her.

So, when I saw this at Etude House, I immediately bought it and it's priced at P128. When I went home, I tried it and it's actually good. The lashes itself are nice and it gives volume but I am not really liking it because it is stiff and it pokes my inner eye area.


The lash glue is in color light blue and the color fades away after one minute. The glue doesn't stick very well on my eyes, and my false lashes keeps on falling apart. Also, I find the glue irritates my skin..
And I think it would be better if I just buy the trustee duo glue since it got many good feed backs.

Overall, I personally think that this lashes are just good for any fotd shoot, but when you use this for special occassion I wouldn't recommend it since it's just synthetic plus it's stiff and pokes like a bee.

Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Review


After all the raves about the Maybelline gel liner, the company came up with another version of eyeliner. And it's called the Maybelline hypersharp liner. This is actually a pen type - in which, it allows you to create that edgy lined eyes.

I thought that the company did a brilliant job for creating such product. I myself is a user of their gel liner and I must say that it works pretty well. However, sometimes I just find it very heavy on my eyes and I would prefer to use something soft looking eyeliner like a liquid liner, but I just suck at it. And then I heard there are  kinds of pen type, but I refrain myself from buying because those kind of stuffs that can only be bought online. I'm not against buying online, I just want to test the product first before buying.

Luckily, my friend of mine, told me that there's a new eyeliner from Maybelline. I thought that it's gonna be a liquid liner. But boy, was I wrong. When I checked it out at the department store, it's the type of  liner that I'm looking for! It's like the one from K-palette or Dolly wink! So, I mmediately bought it.

The packaging is pretty simple though. What can I ask for? It's just a pen! lol. Anyway, I like it that the packaging isn't tacky as I thought. It's professional looking type of pen, I tell you.



On to the swatches, it's pretty decent. I was able to create lines and shapes with this.
I just find it that I have to shake the pen first before I use it, so that more ink will come through but that's no biggie at all!

Overall, I find this product pretty decent for its price and most likely, I would repurchase this eyeliner pen. And yes, I would definitely recommend this to those who aren't that good in lining their eyes as this gives so much control and would glide into the skin smoothly.

How about you, do have this kind of eyeliner? What are your thoughts? Let me know!

Sleek Blush Review


Top to bottom: Flamingo, Coral and Life's a peach

I am so glad that I got my hands on these blushes! I love it's packaging. It's sleek and black and when you open it, it has mirror on it which is pretty decent. The size of this one is quite small compared to nars blush.
The texture of the packaging is rubbery matte which I don't really like because it tends to smudge and it easily get scratched.

The powder itself has great pigmentation although I find life's a peach tends to be chalky on me. However, these have great quality and it applies smoothly and evenly on cheeks! Great blush!

In before you ask, my favorite shade is coral. 
It's really gorgeous on my skin shade. My skin shade is NC 30-35

How about you, have you tried any of sleek's blushes? How was it? What's your favorite shade? Let me know!

Ben Nye Luxury Powder


I believe some of you already know what this is for but for those who isn't much a makeup enthusiast, let me give a brief introduction and review for this product.

Description:

Formerly known as Visage Poudre Luxury Powders, these ultra-neutral powders provide superior matte and subtle finishing. Often compared to French powders with silky-fine textures. the Ben Nye Bella line of powders are translucent with just a hint of color

This stuff is amazing! I must say this gotta be my holygrail for setting powders. I already road tested this and guess what? It really did deliver the promise of giving you that matte effect. This product helped my oils at bay. I can tell from the first time I use this, I only blot once and after that.. my make up was still in great condition. One tip though, apply this powder very lightly as this may get too powdery on your face.

Overall, I love this stuff although it has parabens on it - so for those who doesn't like it, I must say be wary! Nonetheless, it's a great product and totally worthy of your money and makes a good investment.

Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze Bronzing Powder


Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze Bronzing Powder

In Mufe website, it says:
Ultra-matte and non-pearly, Mat Bronze is different from standard bronzers, as it gives a natural tanned glow suitable for all skin types (women, men and mature skin) and can be worn throughout the year. 
Thanks to its non-drying formula, it completely evens the complexion, toning down imperfections without drying out the skin. 
With a long-lasting matte, tanned and powdered finish, it sets make-up and ensures a transparent, perfect result. 
Its silky, comfortable texture is pleasant and easy to apply and provides an even finish. 
Mat Bronze protects the skin and fights sun-induced ageing thanks to its anti-free radical vitamin E formula. 
Its glamorous metallic bronze case is easy to distinguish from other powders. 
Mirror and puff included.
The makeup forever bronzing comes with 4 shades namely: Apricot, Honey, Cinnamon and Amber.
I got the shade amber and I can say that it's amazing. It went pretty well on my nc35 skintone. This product really delivers.. I can recreate like megan fox, kim k, warmth glow look by using this bronzer. I also use this for contouring, and the moment I put it on, I was really pleased to see that subtle color on my face. This did not make me break out.
By the way, I like how the packaging is made. It's classy and feels really expensive. ;p

Overall, I love this product. I wouldn't mind to repurchase this again :)
